Here Is a Sure-Fire Method That Is Guaranteed to Get You on Page 1 of Google Within Days
It’s a well-known fact that where you rank in search results is essential for directing more traffic to your website. The top 30 results get over 90% of all website traffic and the top 10 get 80% more traffic than those in positions 11 – 30. So, since Google dominates search engine traffic in the UK, accounting for more than 92% of all searches, your Google page ranking matters hugely if you want to attract more visitors to your website.
But in an increasingly crowded online marketplace getting on page 1 of Google is becoming harder and harder. So how do you do it?
Well you could invest a huge amount of time creating hundreds of pages of keyword rich content and back links. You could pay an online marketing agency to do it for you. Or you can take a simple shortcut, one that is guaranteed to have your site listed on page 1 of Google within days.
So what is this shortcut?
Google have been experimenting with universal search for some time now. So when you carry out a search Google doesn’t just display snippets of text from the highest ranked sites as it used to. It also shows you images, video, news, shopping results and much more! What this means is that if you have a #1 video on YouTube it is also highly likely to be displayed on page 1 of Google video results. Add your website URL to the description of your video and you instantly have a way of attracting lots of new traffic to your website.
With a little more work, it’s then very straightforward to get your video shown on page 1 of Google universal search.
Here’s an example
If you search in YouTube for “Essex online marketing” you will see that the top video is one with that title which I uploaded on 21st December 2010. Go to Google, select search for videos and you will see the same video, also in the #1 position. Now select search for everything in Google and you will see a thumbnail for the video right in the middle of the page under Videos for Essex online marketing. Et voila! A page 1 Google listing just for uploading one video!
Some things to consider
Of course as more and more businesses wake up to the tremendous potential of video marketing the number of new videos posted is going to increase. So if you want to steal a march on your competitors you will need get your videos out there and start building up views and subscribers before video marketing becomes saturated.
Nor can you just post any old video. Users will only want to interact with your videos if they are of good quality, plus if you want to impress potential customers with what you have to offer and persuade them to visit your website it’s not a good idea to post low value content that is badly presented. So it’s worth investing a bit of time and money in getting this right.
Fortunately, the days when you had to pay an ad agency thousands of pounds to produce a short promotional video are long gone. There are a number of low cost software packages available now that will allow you to make amazing, professional looking videos if you have the time and the skills to script and produce them. And if you don’t you should be able to find a reputable marketing company that will do this for you at an affordable price.
