SEO Ranking Factors
There are numerous factors that play a role in how well your website ranks on Google or other search engines. Some of those factors are listed here along with an approximate percentage that each one contributes to your search engine results position. This is not a comprehensive list. There are many more factors and the search engines are constantly updating their algorithms. It requires constant monitoring and testing in order to find out what works the best for your website.
SEO ranking factors based on multiple studies
Local SEO refers to optimizing your website so that it shows up when people are searching for your services or products locally to them. For instance, if a person is searching for a product that your website sells and adds “near me” to their search criteria, then you would like to show up in the search results for them so that they know that you have the product and are close to them geographically.
In addition, the search engines also have what is known as a “local pack” of results. These are business listings that display on a map for the potential customer so that they can see where your store is physically located. On Google, these are called Google My Business listings and on Bing they are called Bing Places. These, along with other third-party directories such as Yelp, need to be claimed, verified, and optimized in order for you to start showing up.
You have probably heard the term thrown around before, but what does it actually mean? A backlink in simple terms is when another website has a link that takes someone to your website. The search engines take a look at your links and rewards you for having more links. However, these links also need to be high quality links and you can actually get penalized (not show up in the search results) if you build links the wrong way.
