How to Increase Your Search Traffic Using Google Search Console

By | August 10, 2019


Don’t you wish Google just told you how to
get more search traffic? Well, they do. Hey, everyone, I’m Neil Patel and, today,
I’m going to teach you how to get more search traffic using Google Search Console. The first thing I want you to do is log into
your Search Console. Click on the Search Analytics. From there, you can end up seeing your traffic
stats the way Google sees it. Click on Pages. When you click on Pages, you get a list of
all the pages that are driving you search traffic, right, in order from the most popular
to the least popular. Click on a page that you want to increase
the search traffic for, and you’ll get a list of the traffic that’s just for that one page. Then click on Queries, and then, you’ll see
a list of all the keywords that drive search traffic to that page. Now that you have that list, the second thing
you need to do is go into the blog post or webpage that’s getting all that search traffic,
and integrate those keywords within the content. You can’t just stuff your article or your
webpage with these new keywords that you’re not already including within your page, right,
because once you add them, you should get more search traffic. You got to also update your content and make
it more thorough, more detailed, and naturally blend in those new keywords. If it’s not natural, you won’t do well. People will see that you’re just stuffing
keywords. They’re going to bounce right off your webpage,
and it’s going to hurt you. The third thing you have to do is also add
those keywords, at least the main ones, within your meta description and your title text. That way Google knows the main keywords you’re
trying to focus on. Last, but not least, you then want to take
that page and submit it within Google Search Console. You can add the URL, submit it right away,
and that tells them, “Hey, crawl this page because it’s updated,” and update the search
results with this new page. Once you do that, within a week or two weeks
at the latest, you should see an increase in search traffic. That’s all you have to do. If you did that with all your popular pages,
you’ll get more search traffic using Google Search Console.

    Awesome! I've been liking your recent emails for some reason. They're like somebody is sending me a text message. The funny part is that I read them. Honestly, I can read complete emails but I'm too lazy for that. I'd rather read a whole article or a book, but not a long email. I believe you're getting more clicks because of that.

    Surprised to hear you mention using keyword meta tag. I thought that it was widely accepted that Google ignores it?

    As the CTR includes thousands of impressions (some which may not be relevant or even see) wouldn't tracking individual URL's be a better indicator of performance than CTR %? Thanks!, great video btw

    Neil, sorry to bother you again only I forgot to ask about my bounce rate. I recently connected my site via the publicise feature in wordpress to the facebook and twitter pages I set up for my site. Since doing this my bounce rate has gone from around 21% to 49%. The site is only about 6 weeks old. Am I trying to do too much too soon to get traffic and should I disconnect from my facebook and twitter pages to remedy this and let my traffic build organically? Thanks Neil
