5 Insider Tips: How to Go From Page 2 to Page 1 of Google

By | September 1, 2019


and my company we have a joke where do you go to bury dead bodies page two of Google no one ever goes to page two of Google it’s either you’re on page one or it doesn’t even matter hey everyone i’m neil patel and today i’m gonna share with you how to go from page two of google to page one so the first thing you need to do is look at all of the results that are ahead of you on page one you go to those urls you can actually take their site and put it into a troughs when you put in that URL into Atrios it shows you every single person that’s linking to your competition make sure your web page is better than your competitions because if it’s not this tactics not going to work plus Google’s goal is to rank the best site at the top so of course you want to make your website and web page better than your competition once you know it’s better you’re at Atrus you put in a competitor URL and you can see every single person that’s linking to them you can go to each of those sites look for their contact form and email them hey John I noticed that you linked to X Y & Z website I cover a B and C that they don’t feel free to check it out here and if you like it feel free and link to it cheers Neil now that email template that I gave you isn’t the best one it’s kind of generic but you need to customize it for your business I can’t give you a customized one cuz I don’t know your business but that’s why I gave you a generic one so if you do that what you’ll find is as you’re sending out hundreds of emails you’ll get a handful of links you send out a hundred emails you get four or five links that’s not bad over time it adds up and what you’ll find is your rankings will slowly climb after that you’ve done that I want you to do the second thing the second thing is you optimize your title tag you can go into Google search console look to see what keywords you’re getting impressions for and what Q is you’re getting clicks for if the main keyword your ranking for isn’t getting that many clicks you need to adjust your title tag to be more appealing you can do things like a Vulcan curiosity for example if you’re trying to rank for the keyword green tea you can create a title tag like seven benefits of green tea number five will shock you do you see how that title tag is a Vulcan curiosity right and as I mentioned in the past a title tag is that link that you see on Google underneath is a meta description title up top description underneath people click on that title to go to your site as you optimize your title what you noticed by evoking curiosity making more appealing title tag because if you just have keywords in there yeah people may click it but if it doesn’t read that well no one’s gonna click on it it’s all about doing what’s best for the user first when you have an amazing title tag you’ll get more clicks in your competition let me ask you this if you search for a term and a thousand other people search for that same exact term but everyone starts clicking on the number two listing instead of the number one listing what do you think that tells Google that tells Google that the number two listing is more valuable than the number one listing and eventually they’ll push that number to one up and the number one listing down that’s why you need to adjust your title tags the third thing you need to do is stop looking at search queries as keywords yes people are typing in keywords into Google but these keywords aren’t just for the sake of them typing in a word a keyword is usually a problem that someone’s trying to solve for example if you type in how to get more Google traffic or even something more broad like SEO the chances are you’re looking to increase your rankings because you want to get more traffic to your website get more customers to your business look at these key terms key words key phrases as problems if you can solve the problems people are looking for right these solutions that they’re looking for if you’re gonna get more traffic so the way you do this is you log into Google search console you look at the URL that’s ranking and Google search console will show you all the keywords that you’re ranking for take your webpage adjust the web page to include solutions to all the keywords that are relevant to what the page is around by doing that people will get a better user experience and then when they land on your site they won’t be clicking the back button and then going to the next listing if everyone keeps going to your website clicking the back button going to the Nexxus thing that tells Google they didn’t find the solution to their problem and that’s why you need a think of keywords and your webpage has problems and solutions people are typing in a problem you need to deliver the solution now the last strategy I have for you when it comes to boosting your ranking so you can go from page two to page one is to build up your brand and here’s what I mean by that one of the biggest factors when it comes to Google rankings is breath when you want running shoes what do you buy you’re probably gonna buy a brand like Nike or adidas not because you google for them but because you know that brand same with credit cards you’re gonna buy American Express or use a Visa card it’s because you’re familiar with the brands by building a brand that creates longevity Google loves ranking brands higher than non breath it helps them determine which websites should rank at the top the reason being is everyone could build links everyone can do on-page SEO but not everyone can build a brand the people who build a brand it shows Google that they’re here for the long haul you people trust them and they should rank higher so you’re not gonna be able to advertise on TV do billboards do magazine advertising because you’re much smaller and that’s okay but there’s a few ways you can build bread you can use companies like PR serve com they do performance-based press every time they get you mentions you pay money if they don’t get you mention that you pay em zero dollars you can also use tools like subscribers subscribers com helps get people back to your website so through their browser they can subscribe to your website and then when you release new blog post new content they’ll keep coming back people keep coming back to your website you’re building a connection with them a relationship they’ll end up getting to know your brand much better you can use the tools like hellobar com in which you can collect email addresses on your website so that when people come to your website you’re collecting their email address when you have new content you can notify them through email and get them back to your website which again helps you build a brand you can use tools like crazy egg and use their user recordings so you can see the mouse moves and how people navigate through your website you can produce a better experience for these people they’re gonna tell their friends keep coming back and they’re gonna be much more delighted versus if they go to a website that’s ugly and has a terrible user experience and lastly think about the user first that’s the best way to build a brand it’s not about making money yes you want to make money a lot of businesses do but they don’t make money because they want to make money they make money because they solved a problem so if you put your users first you serve am using tools like koala roooar Survey Monkey figure out how you can truly help them knock their socks off they’re gonna have such a better experience that over time you’re gonna build up your brand so if you do those four things over time you’re gonna notice your rankings go from page two to page one but here’s the thing most people want the rank isn’t go up right away it doesn’t happen that way sure I know that you went from page 1,000 to page you know eight really fast and you may even go from page eight to page three or page four pretty quickly but as you keep moving up Google takes their time to move up rankings it’s not because their algorithm is slow is that they want to ensure that you’re providing a better experience than all the people who are ranking above you so if you follow those tips you’re gonna go from page two to page one now if you have any questions leave a comment below I’ll do my best to answer and help you go from page two to page one feel free to share your URL below as well I can analyze your page tell you what’s wrong or what I would do thank you for watching make sure you subscribe comment like share again thank you

    Hey Neil, Good afternoon from Nepal. I have been following you since few months and watch your every video + blogs. I'm getting problem with my travel website ( where I sell trekking packages). How do I drive a traffic to my website and generate enquiry? (Note: local competition is very high in my niche, our main goal is to bring inquiry as much as from different countries who come to visit Nepal) . Is there any special process or steps that I'm missing??
    I will be more than happy if you could manage some time to reply my comment.

    Awesome stuff. I was wondering if changing the title to one of the search queries from search console would hurt the ranking in any way? For e.g., if I go from "weighing food raw or cooked" to "should I weigh food raw or cooked". Would love to have your take on it.

    I was ranking on 1st page at 2nd position until Medic Update (Aug, 1). Now my website is like football which get kicks and moves to page 6,3…. Right now, my position is replaced with spammy website that contains lots of pop up ads. Did this happen with any of you here?

    I think they focused more on page speed as the one which is replaced with mine is loading faster according to page speed insight and slow according to GTmetrix and Pingdom.

    Hi Neil,

    I noticed that Indeed might be cheating in Google. Try it, typ any job title with job or vacancy. And they will show up on the first page or dominate the first positions with numerous URL's with the exact keyterms.

    Do you have any clue what they are doing to dominate every search query?

    Hey Neil,
    You talk about how clicking on a page and going back within seconds isn't a good sign, but what if i clicked on a website, didn't find anything useful or maybe found a definition i was looking for and then immediately closed the tab.

    Can this impact them negatively too?

    I have a page which is ranking for my target keyword but in last places of the 1st page, I have redited that post and also added more relevant contents to it, also tweked the Title tag, but still my ranking isn't improving. But the sites that are ranking in the first 3 places have lower quality & quantity content than me! What can I do? Backlinks are not involved in any cases and those sites are not enough authoritative also! Looks like Google is randomly giving rankings here!

    A competitor ranks #1 for EVERYTHING & in maps. They had a fire at the premises & it gained news coverage. How can anyone compete with that? I think in googles eyes it got them a ton of relevant local links as well as mentions & also confirms it's a real business to google. Baffling how SEO works nowadays.
