How to rank higher on Google

We teach you here how to rank higher on Google, without wasting too many words on each method. The statistics are taken from recent comprehensive studies. We’ll keep this page updated, therefore bookmarking it might be a good idea.

  1. Get a lot of backlinks to your content (consider using our Ultimate SEO service, our our Managed Traffic)! On average, the top 2 results on page 1 of a Google search equate to 38% of all the backlinks of the first 10 results! Acquiring backlinks from multiple domains is important.
  2. Get HTTPS for your website, preferably through a free SSL certificate – because paying for this is stupid! HTTPS has positive correlation with higher rankings, with 33% of all URLs that rank #1, #2 or #3 using this protocol.
  3. Get keyword-focused internal links and backlinks (internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on the same domain)! Work on acquiring links that have your keyword present within the anchor text (the anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink), but don’t overdo it! Anchor text is a huge ranking signal; in a study, the 100 top performing blog posts had, on average, over 80% more keyword-focused anchor texts than the rest.
  4. Use shorter page titles! Top-ranking webpages tend to have shorter page titles, with the sweet spot nearing 8 words in length. Identify any page titles that are too long and shorten them down to ensure they’re as succinct as possible!
  5. Put the target keyword in the URL! Webpages with the target keyword in their URL tend to rank higher in Google. If you weren’t doing this, do it from now on; avoid updating URLs of existing content because there are greater risks associated with this, than the potential reward.
  6. Include your target keyword within the page title! Over 15% of all the pages ranked #1 include the target keyword within the page title.
  7. If you have Google/Universal Analytics installed, Google can deduce how relevant your page was for the search by looking at these two statistics: time-on-page and bounce rate. If you have a high bounce rate and a low time-on-page, uninstall Universal Analytics!
  8. Use shorter URLs! Top-ranking webpages in Google have shorter URLs, with position #1 URLs averaging 59 characters in length.
  9. Search engines understand vote counts when it comes to social news aggregation websites. If a link leading to your website on Reddit has 50 upvotes, it will be a social proof more powerful than if it had 5 upvotes. Make sure you slip somehow in the title the keywords that you’re ranking for.

How to promote yourself if you sell B2B services

Method 1

Market yourself through comments on Reddit. Add something similar to this as your home page:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Blogging+Entrepreneur+freelance+marketing+smallbusiness+socialmedia+startups+writing/new/

In this example, whenever you’ll be opening your browser, you’ll see the new posts from these subreddits: blogging, entrepreneur, freelance, marketing, smallbusiness, socialmedia, startups, writing. Answer to people, help them, mention your website from time to time, maybe even add something similar to this to the end of each of your comments:

Check out my service from website!

Of course, change the list of subreddits to whatever interests you by modifying the link.

For every 9 comments, do a post linking directly to your website. It’s called the 9:1 rule and I believe it’s mentioned in their self-promotion TOS. You’ll get a lot less hate by following this rule as opposed to relentlessly promoting your website. Of course, we can help when needed with upvotes for both comments or posts, in order to gain you more visibility. Here’s a list of what can be done with our help.

 

Method 2

When you’ve written an article on which the target market could be any entrepreneur, post it on news.ycombinator.com (Hacker News). We sell Hacker News accounts of quality here, but we’ll probably make a new page exclusively for them soon. By posting from a great account, your post won’t get removed and you might even make the home page.

 

Method 3

When you’ve written an article on which the target market could be any marketer, post it on growhhackers.com (GH). These are the tags which can be chosen for any article posted on growthhackers.com, just so you understand better what fits there: Analytics, API, B2B, Blogging, Case Study, Chrome, Churn, Content Marketing, Copywriting, CRO, Crowdfunding, Customer Development, Customer Service, Data Science, Design, E-commerce, Early Traction, Ecosystem, Email Marketing, Engagement, Engineering, Facebook, Feedback, Firefox, Google Adwords, Google+, Growth, Growth Hacks, Growth Team, Inbound Marketing, Instagram, Landing Pages, LinkedIn, Local SEO, Marketing Strategy, Metrics, Mobile Apps, MobileMarketing, Network Effects, Onboarding, Optimization, Paid Marketing, Pinterest, Press, Pricing, Product, Product Launch, Referral, Retargeting, SaaS, Sales, Science of Persuasion, SEM, SEO, Snapchat, Social Marketing, Tools, Twitter, User Experience, Viral, Youtube.

 

On methods 3/4, we can post for you if you have bad accounts, and you should also consider having your posts upvoted.

 

Method 4

Market your website through answers on Quora. Make sure you answer the most followed questions (because they get much more traffic), but those on which you have a chance of getting your answer placed near the top. You can add the pages of a few topics as homepages (yes, you can have more than one homepage!), in order to have them accessible when you open the browser; example: https://www.quora.com/topic/Startups/top_questions; this would show you the questions that need an answer from the “Startups” topic. Once you have at least 5 answers in each topic on which you’re specialized, you can get Maximize PeopleRank from us (read its description on the main page) for each of those topics, and from there onwards your answers will get much better positioning.

You can also try to compete on the “big questions” (questions which get a lot of traffic because they have a lot of follows) – the ones with over 50 follows – by buying upvotes from us, or you can create new “big questions” by buying Question Follows from us for the questions that don’t get enough traffic, but on which you have the top answer (and it’s a good one!).

 

Method 5

Have us post and upvote a link to your newest articles on Voat, Snapzu and TopTopic.

Reddit Marketing

This article will go over the most basic Reddit marketing techniques, the ones for which you don’t even need to think. In most cases you’ll just have to post a link to your product/service/app/cause/crowdfunding campaign/… with a long and descriptive title, and then buy a few upvotes and comments for your threads. Especially if you’re inexperienced, these are the first Reddit marketing objectives that you should complete:

 

You can easily get DoFollow links from Reddit by posting your website in the above places, then having the posts upvoted. After a certain threshold (5 upvotes or more for subreddits of a few thousands – hopefully others don’t downvote you), the links automatically become DoFollow. The exact threashold of how many upvotes you need depends on the average vote count of the top 25 posts from Hot, on that respective subreddit (yes Reddit, we have studied you!). Links from comments can become DoFollow too.

 

More advanced and time consuming Reddit marketing techniques:

  • Link somehow to your business in ALL the relevant subreddits. For example if you’re a game developer, you might post comments and threads in /r/gamedev, /r/games, /r/gaming (12,480,009 subscribers), /r/gamedeals, /r/indiegames, /r/greenlightquality and sixty more places.
  • Discuss a business process or offer content of value on /r/entrepreneur (208,115 subscribers) and /r/business (210,073 subscribers); only disclose your website address if you’re asked to in the comment section. If no one asks you, just ask yourself from another account or buy a comment from us and we’ll ask you.
  • Discuss an aspect related to your startup on /r/startups (116,638 subscribers)
  • Post links to content from your blog in ALL the relevant subreddits (submit it any form: posts, comments or replies to top comments).
  • Buy a Reddit account and create a subreddit for your company or cause. Post regular updates, links to your blog posts, promotions, and so on.

 

All of the subscriber counts above are as of September 30, 2016.

Here’s a word of advice, pasted from the Reddit guideline on self-promotion:

You should submit from a variety of sources (a general rule of thumb is that 10% or less of your posting and conversation should link to your own content), talk to people in the comments (and not just on your own links), and generally be a good member of the community.

To avoid breaking this rule, make the posts from different accounts, or buy posts from us and we’ll make sure to not go overboard from a single account. Don’t post with your personal account, especially if you’re a novice in your understanding of Reddit, because you might get banned from a few of the subreddits where you’ve implemented our Reddit marketing ideas and tips.

Reddit traffic to your blog, product, service or cause. We help you get it!

The Reddit traffic that you get from an upvoted post or comment can be huge. It can even be more than you can afford to receive. Are you familiar with these expressions?

  • the Reddit effect
  • the hug of death

If you are, you probably know what you want and how you want it, therefore jump to this article about buying Reddit upvotes.

If not, read on. When a popular website links to a smaller one, causing a massive increase in traffic, it can overload it. This can mean slowing it down, or even outright making it temporarily unavailable. “The Reddit hug of death” happens when too many redditors find out about your stuff in the same time and start visiting it. They like your stuff. They “hug” your content, product, service or cause… until they take it down. For the more technical, it’s like a flood on the HTTP port.

Have a look here for some updated statistics on how many visitors Reddit has. Or look below for the status on July 24, 2016.

reddit traffic

You will notice that they’re quite impressive, more so than any other social media network, except Facebook. You can redirect some of that Reddit traffic to your website through two methods:

– 1 –

Buying adds through them.

This doesn’t work. Redditors are usually technical people and most of them use AdBlock. Your ads will be seen by the exceptions. Ads on Reddit are also quite easy to distinguish and the brain gets used to ignoring them. You’d be throwing money into a hole.

– 2 –

The second method actually works: submit a post or a comment regarding your stuff. Or “have it submitted by someone else/someone neutral/someone unconnected to you” (by us). Then you don’t have to hope that people will actually like your post/comment and upvote it. Just pay us and we’ll upvote your content and help you get that quality, real traffic. You can convert that further into money or another objective and if you’re like any of our other clients, you’ll keep coming back.

Slang and acronyms that you should know (used on Reddit and other social media platforms)

Language is evolving and online language is doing it at an ever faster rate. This slang and these acronyms (actually they are mainly are mainly initialisms, but who uses that word?) should be known to all the people using Reddit and other social media platforms, except LinkedIn (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Hacker News, Voat, Quora, YouTube, Google Plus, Tumblr, Instagram, VK, Flickr, Vine, Meetup, Snapchat, Periscope, SoundCloud, WhatsApp, Slack, WeChat, Sina Weibo etc.)

 

subreddit

Reddit entries are organized into areas of interest called “subreddits”. Historically, the front page was the “main reddit”, and other areas were “subreddits”. There is now no main subreddit. Instead, there are multiple default subreddits dealing with topics such as books, television, and music.

 

karma

Karma is a point system that lets you know how your submissions or comments are doing. The more karma your post has, the more people have upvoted it. Generally a higher karma count on a post means that the community of that subreddit found your post valuable and interesting. Your karma is logged on your user page on the top right. Please note that self-posts earn you no karma. Only comments and link-posts do.

 

best meme evermeme

A meme is a shape of thought, an idiom, a shorthand catchphrase — some tiny fragment of pop culture or understanding or psychology that is passed from person to person (either in person or via text, movies/tv, or internet communication methods).

 

 

 

 

circlejerk

A group discussion or activity between like-minded individuals that validates mutual biases or goals in a non-confrontational environment.

 

hivemind

Named because Reddit’s majority of users tend to follow clearly and intensely about one issue to an effect that it seems like Reddit is a collective mind on certain issues, expressing it by downvoting certain ideas to oblivion. It is used as a negative term, trying to indicate the conformity or closemindedness of Redditors on those issues. Related to circlejerking.

 

throwaway accounts

Accounts people make when confessing to a sin, and don’t want to be traced.

The term used for the little envelope in the top right corner to let you know you have a message

How to use Reddit (Guide)

How to use Reddit? First understand how this social media platform is structured:

The focus of Reddit is communities (named “subreddits”), where users make relevant contributions. If you try to make it about yourself, you won’t get very far. Search around for topics (subreddits) that interest you and subscribe to them. The subreddit search can help you for that. If you have any specific questions, go for it. If you’ve just created the account, you will have defaults: subreddits you’re automatically subscribed to (the same subreddits that you see when you’re not logged in). You probably won’t be interested in most of them, therefore consider unsubscribing. You do it from here: https://www.reddit.com/subreddits. These are not e-mail subscriptions, they just determine what shows up on the main site page after you log in.

Find a post that interests you and join the discussion!

Don’t start by posting a couple of links to your own website on the same subreddit. People might take that as self-promotion, which is frowned upon. As a new user it may be better to get involved in discussions that are already happening, just to get a feel for how Reddit works.

For a longer guide on how to use Reddit,

you might want to check out the Reddit 101: https://www.reddit.com/wiki/reddit_101

It is well written and will teach you all the basics on how to use Reddit. You’ll find out about Karma (a point system that lets you know how your submissions or comments are doing), sidebars, moderators, admins, reddiquette and will also answer to a few frequently asked questions (for example the all important “Help! What happened to my post?”, if you’re promoting yourself in the wrong way).

 

After you’ve used this network for a few days,

Thank you for checking out our Reddit guide and we hope you’ve learned everything that you needed to know about how to use Reddit.

Facebook and Twitter are full of spam

We can make your business known. Please read on.

Facebook and Twitter are full of spam. Their conversion rate is not 0.5%; it’s close to 0%. You probably already tried marketing there and you found out that without spending a lot of time on ad targeting, it simply doesn’t work. And even then, the customer acquisition cost will be too high. Don’t get me started on Google’s display advertising and other similar tactics. The competition is so high for keywords that you’ll spend a lot for nothing. Everybody has AdBlock by now.

We have the solution. Reddit, Voat and Hacker News are social media networks where users don’t expect to see commercial messages. Their defense system is the fact that downvoting makes posts “disappear”; and it mostly works! At http://upvotes.club, we have the power to create the illusion of popularity for posts (by upvoting them, replying in accord and downvoting their competition). Those posts could be leading to one of your articles or talking in a positive light about your products/services. Other users will see them as “popular” and because of the sheepish behavior of human beings, will agree to the post and take it as reference. It’s similar to word of mouth, but online; as efficient and easier to bootstrap.

Last month, Reddit had almost 228 million unique visitors. Finding your target market on it is easy because of the way it’s organized. If you’d sell a trucking simulator, you might want a comment talking about your game in a thread residing in the top section or /r/gaming or /r/games. Alternatively, you might want someone posting a new thread and talking about how realistic your game is. You could target subreddits that are even more specific to what you’re selling; in this case /r/trucksim, /r/EuroTruck2 and /r/simracing. etc.

I think you agree with me that this is not hard and it actually works. Just to form an idea about how cheap this is, add to cart on our website 10 Reddit upvotes and one Reddit comment. Afterwards view the cart. That cheap order can result in 400 views in the first day with 5% conversion rate, then 100 more views every month for years to come. For an article, it can mean thousands of views in the first hour. We have clients that do a new campaign every few days and have given up on other marketing solutions.
