How To Get Ranked By Google – A Beginner’s Guide — 6 Comments

  1. Wow, this is a really great SEO guide ! I’ve actually been struggling to get visitors to my site so this really helped me out. My site is about 2 years old and I don’t seem to have gotten any backlinks yet. Would you suggest I try guest posting at this point? And what is this moz spying tool that you were talking about?

    • Thanks very much for visiting my website and for your comment on my “How To Get Ranked By Google – A Beginner’s Guide” post Lucas. I am glad that you are finding it useful. 

      That’s right, Guest Posting is a great way to get backlinks, but it is not the only way either. One that works also very well is by posting comments on Social Media. Have you tried that?

      Moz is a company based in the US that develops and sells various SEO products, used for inbound marketing, analytics, and more. It is not just a spying tool, although it is used for that, among other things.

      I hope to have answered your questions fully Lucas, if not, please ask for clarifications in the comments box.

      I wish you the very best for your only project Lucas.


  2. Hi John, thanks for your tips here. If you don’t mind I’d like to pick your brain. I know a bit about keywords and their importance, but I’m interested to know your preferred keyword search tool, and why is it your tool of choice? 

    I’m also keen to hear about your strategies for getting backlinks from authority sites. How do you go about doing this? It seems daunting to me to randomly approach people. Is there a better way? 

    Re site speed, I have a WordPress site and I’ve always found the EWWW Image Optimiser plugin good to reduce the size of images. Do you use this plugin, or do you use another plugin for images

    Thanks in advance John. There’s some great information in your post, much appreciated.

    • Thanks so much Melissa for visiting my website and for taking the time to comment and ask your questions here. So here you are:

      My preferred keyword research tool, and by far the best available on the market (not to mention that it is free to use) is Jaaxy. You can find all the details on my review ~~> Introducing Jaaxy, The Best Free Keyword Research Tool 

      I am sure that you will love it and if you have any questions, please make sure to ask them here.

      As for getting backlinks from authority sites, you do not have to be embarrassed about asking for them. It is something normal to do and website owners do that all the time. There is only one way to go about that, is to contact the owner of the website from which you would like to have a backlink from, and ask. Only 3 things that might happen is that:

      1 – they agree 

      2 – they don’t agree

      3 – they don’t bother to answer

      So, where is the risk?

      And finally, yes, I use the EWWW Image Optimiser plugin as well (I also use WordPress for my website). It is the only one that I have ever used. I am very happy with it and have no reasons for changing.

      I hope to have answered your questions fully Melissa, and I look forward to seeing you here again soon.


  3. Hi John. What an interesting article. I always thought it would be difficult to rank in Google, but you show us with some very easy steps just how to do this. Before reading your article I imaged that to get good rankings you have to employ someone to tweak your site, and possibly purchase some form of leads provided by one of the many companies offering to do this (and we never know who is scamming us). I now know how I can do this myself. I will definitely be looking at your WA button. The free joining sounds interesting.  Thanks Jim

    • Hi Jim,

      Thanks very much for taking the time to read my “How To Get Ranked By Google – Beginner’s Guide” and I am glad that you found out that you could easily rank your contents in Google. Of course, there are so many other things that need to be taken into consideration. If you do need to have some tweaking done on your website, but you are not sufficiently knowledgeable on the matter, there are some expert freelancers on Fiverr who could fix any issues that you may have.

      I look forward to have you on my team of very successful business owners whenever you are ready Jim.

      Best wishes,
