    Tired of low rankings?

    I know you are!

    These 5 insanely awesome, but overlooked tips if applied by anyone can help to improve the rankings instantly.

    1) Fix your broken links

    Will you like a website that’s linking to other sites (or internal sites) that has broken links?

    One of the biggest reasons why most websites fail with poor rankings is because they have tons of broken links.

    Fix them right away!

    Head to your Google Webmaster tools and click on the Crawl Errors:

    It’s no secret.

    Site with better internal link strategy tends to rank a lot better.

    Why?

    One simple reason, the link juice passes throughout the site evenly or too the most important pages you are interlinking too.

    This can instantly give you a nice boost to your ranking provided your existing page has got a good authority.

    3) Fix the loading speed of your website

    Enough Said!

    When it comes to websites, most sites have horrible loading speed.

    I will end up making my breakfast but most sites won’t load.

    Imagine how frustrating this can get for the readers?

    To fix:

    • Use better quality themes
    • Get custom themes
    • Stop using a lot of Plugins
    • Stop using cracked themes or plugins
    A Pro Tip: Contact the developer of the theme and ask him regarding the loading speed.

    4) Sprinkle LSI Keywords

    Want to know a small little secret?

    Sprinkle LSI keywords in your article.

    What’s an LSI Keyword.

    They are related synonyms or terms that are used to help crawlers understand your articles even better.

    Here is a quick example:

    Weight Loss is my primary term, and here are the Google Suggestions that can be used as my LSI

    5) Start drafting better and longer content

    Have you recently noticed that instead of normal regular home page, most sites are pushing their blog pages to rank?

    That’s because contents are everything.

    When you write an in-depth article, it will help you drive a lot more traffic.

    Content Marketing is also a major part of sales funnels for all kinds of website if you have a product to sell.

    As per the recent research, sites that are ranking in the top 10 spots have around 1800–2000 words high quality article posted on their blog.

    If you work on the all the above suggested points, I am sure you will start seeing a much better organic traffic instantly.

    If you have enjoyed this small quick article, then leave a comment below and let me know what other topics do you want me to cover and I will start writing as often as possible.

    Just would add to mind keyword density, don't over-optimize pages and check website with SEO tools regularly to see the changes and notice any issues.

    Content you can seed to social media because it is unique and useful is another one, and part of generally having content on your site that is marketable.
