So you’ve just started out with your very first blog/website and decided to use a free package for now. You don’t know whether it is the right choice to go for the free package and whether or not you will be able to get visitors to your site.
Well, I have good news for you…Not only will you be able to rank with your free site, you will also be able to make money with it. But for now, I’m only going to talk about ranking with your free website.
How to rank on the first page
The first thing that you’ve got to remember is the fact that if your website is still new, it won’t be ranking at all. Google and all the other search engines still need time to build trust and to make sure your site is not just another scam site.
Normally it will take about a month or so before you will start seeing your site ranking on the first few pages. However, it is possible to rank earlier than that, and I will prove it to you in a bit.
Next, you have to do the necessary keyword research. Before I even start typing my first word, I research the keyword about the topic I am about to write about. There are a lot of tools out there, but I will definitely suggest using Jaaxy. It is a very user-friendly tool and does amazing wonders for me.
Now, when writing your post, there are a few things that you must remember in order for search engines to like you. These include things like, knowing your topic, using headings and sub-headings, keeping your paragraphs short, etc. Click here to read the full post of Writing A Good Blog Post: What Do I Need To Know?
After you do all of the above and Finnish writing your post, it is very important to share it on your social media. This way your post will reach more people than just through organic searches.
If you’ve done all the above, the hard work is done. In no time, if the search engines like your post and find it informative, you will start to see ranks. Just remember that you won’t always be able to get first page ranks. Search engine’s algorithms are very complex and no one really knows exactly when you will rank and when you won’t. We can only guide each other in the right direction.
Proof that these steps work
I recently did a post, The Best Real Estate Investment Strategy, and by applying all these tips above, I was able to rank on the first page of Bing. I know it is not Google, but Bing is also a great supplier of organic visitors to your site. How do I know this? Well, the following day I got my visitor with the keyword I used through Bing.
The best thing of all is the fact that at the time of writing this post, my site is only two weeks old. How amazing is that?
Below you’ll find a screenshot of where my post is sitting on the first page of Bing.
In conclusion, do I think it’s possible to rank with a free website? Of course, it is. I just showed you the proof, and the fact that it happened with a site that is just two weeks old, should convince you even more.
All you’ve got to do is follow these steps that I’ve outlined and you will rank in no time.
