How to Get Higher Google Rankings in 2018 [New Checklist]


Want higher Google rankings in 2018? Then make sure to check out this new case study.

In today’s video you’ll see how my SEO checklist helped Proven increase their organic traffic by 88.3%.

Specifically, you’l learn…

Why “Zombie Pages” can doom your search engine rankings… and how to identify and eliminate them. In fact, as you’ll see, Sean from Proven ended up deleting 40k pages!

The next step in my SEO checklist can improve Google rankings FAST. And that step is cleaning up technical SEO issues.

Third, we’ve got on-page SEO. Here’s where I show you how to optimize your content around your target keyword (or keywords).

Next, I show you how to optimize your site around two new-ish ranking factors: click-through-rate (CTR) and dwell time. Both are becoming more and more important parts of Google’s algorithm.

Now that your content is optimized for keywords and user experience signals, it’s time to speed up your site’s loading speed. I show you two cool SEO tools that you can use to improve your site’s loading time.

Last but not least, it’s time to publish a piece of content using the Skyscraper Technique. The fact is: if you want higher Google rankings, your content needs to be significantly better than what’s out there. And that’s where this step comes into play.

All in all, I hope this SEO checklist helps you improve your Google rankings.
