In this text I describe how to rank on the first page in Google in just 2 days. This is not an abstract story which describes the procedure following some theoretical principles. It is a demonstration of my own recent experience, a very practical example which may be useful and instructive for readers.
I published a text on how to stay on Google first page where I suggested several ways on how to maintain and preserve your position once you get ranked on the top page on Google. The text was ranked on the first page on Google already 48 hours after it was published. Here is what I did.
[J. S. Bach, Prelude BWV 998]
1. Choose an interesting topic
There are a lot of texts on how to get to the first page on Google, but it turns out that the situation is completely different if you want to know more on how to remain top ranked on Google or in general. I did some research, and also asked at my hosting platform Wealthy Affiliate. This is a huge hosting community with many thousands of members, but there was no text available, no training or something similar published.
So I was thinking about the topic for a couple of months before I wrote the text down. This was just my point of view, nothing collected from the Internet.
2. Take care the competition is low
In this particular case, numbers were indeed on my side. I used Keyword Tool at Wealthy Affiliate, and it showed this result for searches and traffic:
As you see, not a lot of traffic indeed, but you should know this is just the beginning. Your text is in fact always ranked by many (key)words and phrases. This is easily checked in Webmaster Tool (Search Console). So bear in mind, the numbers will add-up even if the starting traffic looks so small, and you may easily get to 100 or more.
The competition was low, only 22 competing pages as you can see from the picture below, obtained by using the Keyword Tool:
These were clear indicators that I could rank good and reach the top page on Google relatively easy.
3. Strictly apply SEO rules
This is something most of us do. I use the rules listed in my separate page here within the site, around 25 of them.
It is no secret that Google has more than 200 of them. They would not give us the list of course but some people have made some lists and, more or less, all the rules are presently known.
4. Get some comments
This might not be so easy to achieve for many of you, in particular in such a short time interval. But there is a nice Comment Thread available at Wealthy Affiliate where members can write relevant comments on posts of others. This is not a simple exchange of comments between people, the thread is much more advanced.
So I made comments on some sites and requested some through the system for my newly published page, and received 3 comments. The page was already moved from Google page 3 to page 2, and with the addition of the comments I realized today it was on the first page of Google.
5. Use Fetch as Google in Webmaster to index the text
When I published the text, I used the privilege of having such a nice tool as Search Console (know earlier as Webmaster Tools). So it was indexed instantly, and literally within one minute after the text was published it was actually available on the Internet. This is not usually so fast, but it happens. I was delighted with such a speed and the same day I blogged about it at Wealthy Affiliate.
My text is now on the position 8 on Google page 1. You can see it in the picture given here on the right. By the way, you will notice that I am in front of Neil Patel’s post which is more than 3 years old. Quite remarkable.
So, published on Sep. 13, and today is Sept. 15th, in 48 hours the text was on the top page. You may see my another blog at Wealthy Affiliate where I happily reported about it, which will confirm the dates mentioned here.
Here is an addition a few weeks later. I published yet another page in my site about mountains. I followed the same rules described in the present text, except for the comments, and checked after one hour, and my page was on Google page 1, position 4. I reported about this event in a blog at Wealthy Affiliate, have a look. I could have changed the words “2 days” in the title with “1 hour” but I decided to keep it as it is.
I hope you find the text useful. I shall be happy to read your comments and questions so do not hesitate to leave them in the box below.
