Google 300x168 5 Things Affecting Your Companys Rankings on Google Search engine rankings can make or break a business, so what can you do to improve your rankings? With algorithms that constantly grow and change, it’s not easy to know where to start. However, there are a few key elements that remain constant.

If you’re looking to reach your target audience online, here are five places to start.

1. Online Reviews

When dealing with customers, it’s crucial that they feel heard. The best way to do so is by employing customer service quality assurance to ensure your team is at its best.

The right quality assurance software will give you unfiltered insights into how your customer service team is performing and how you can improve the customer’s experience. You can watch how your customer service agents work and provide feedback instantly to guarantee your group meets the company’s standards.

When customers feel valued, they’re far more likely to leave you positive reviews online of your company. If your company is bombarded with 1-star reviews, your other efforts may not perform the way you want them to. On the other hand, improving your customer service could earn you the 5-star reviews you need to ride in the ranks.

2. SEO

Another tactic you can employ to create long-term loyalty and brand awareness is search engine optimization. It doesn’t have to cost you anything if you decide to handle it yourself, unlike pay-per-click advertisements. Review content on higher-ranking sites to see what you should use for your own. When you pair original content with optimized content, your site ranks better in search results.

SEO can help you reach more clients by improving your user engagement on site. Make sure your website is both user and mobile-friendly for the best results.

3. Marketing

Advertisements are the oldest way of spreading awareness, but they can be costly. One alternative is pay-per-click advertisements, where you only pay after someone clicks on the ad. This can save you some money, but you might want to consider a more traditional method of advertising that’s more lucrative for your business.

Don’t try to handle the marketing on your own. You’ll need a team to handle all the details to make the most of your investment. Hire graphic designers and a marketing team to create high-quality ads that bring brand awareness to your company. With more awareness, more people will be searching for your website.

4. Schedule Posts

To stay relevant, you’ll need to post often. Doing so can take a lot of time and energy out of you, so take advantage of the scheduling features on your website or social media accounts. By using these features, you can continue to pop up in users’ feeds and remain on their minds without you needing to set aside time for this every day.

Staying consistent in your posts looks good for algorithms, boosting your rankings. Use tools that allow you to check your analyticsto see what days have the most user traffic and what time is ideal for reaching the widest audience you can.

5. Links 

While optimizing your business’s website is helpful, you also want to have backlinks that will direct others to your site. These links generate traffic for your company and help improve your rankings as people engage with them.

Create relationships with other companies and sites, and see how those relationships can bring the links you’re looking for.

Increase Your Rank, Improve Your Business 

Now that you know what can improve your search engine rankings, it’s time to get busy. Don’t let another moment pass you by when you could be generating brand awareness. Make the algorithm work for you so that your business reaches new levels of success before you know it!
