My case and question to Google Bard: It is impossible to achieve first-page ranking in Google with SEO and organic traffic. I have optimized everything and published about 7,000 articles in my website AmerExperience.com, but I am only getting 10-20 organic page visits from Google. Since Google is practically a monopoly in search engines, what other alternatives are there?
Frustrated with your SEO and organic traffic results? I asked the best SEO guru in the world, Google Bard, for help. Here’s what they said:
It is possible to achieve first page ranking in Google with SEO and organic traffic, but it is becoming increasingly difficult. Google’s algorithm is constantly evolving, and there are many factors that contribute to a website’s ranking, including the quality of the content, the number and quality of backlinks, and the technical aspects of the website.
If you have published 7,000 articles and are only getting 10-20 page visits from Google, there are a few things you can do:
- Analyze your traffic data. Use Google Analytics to see which articles are getting the most traffic and which ones are not. This can help you identify areas where you can improve your content or SEO strategy.
- Research your keywords. Make sure you are targeting the right keywords for your website. Use keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner to find keywords that have high search volume and low competition.
- Improve your on-page SEO. Make sure your articles are well-written and informative, and that they include the relevant keywords throughout the article. You should also optimize your title tags, meta descriptions, and images.
- Build backlinks. Backlinks are one of the most important factors in Google’s ranking algorithm. Reach out to other websites in your industry and ask them to link to your content. You can also create high-quality content that other websites will want to link to.
If you have done all of these things and are still not seeing results, there are a few other alternatives to Google for SEO and organic traffic:
- Bing. Bing is the second most popular search engine in the world. It has a smaller market share than Google, but it is still a good platform to target for organic traffic.
- DuckDuckGo. DuckDuckGo is a privacy-focused search engine that is gaining popularity. It does not track user data, which makes it a good option for people who are concerned about their privacy.
- Social media. Social media platforms like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook can also be used to drive organic traffic to your website. Share your content on these platforms and encourage your followers to visit your website.
- Forums and Q&A sites. Forums and Q&A sites like Reddit and Quora are another good place to drive organic traffic to your website. Answer questions and participate in discussions related to your industry.
It is important to note that there is no magic bullet for SEO and organic traffic. It takes time and effort to build a successful SEO strategy. However, by following the tips above, you can improve your chances of ranking higher in Google and other search engines.
Here are some additional tips:
- Focus on long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords are more specific and less competitive than short-tail keywords. This means that it is easier to rank for long-tail keywords, and they are also more likely to convert into paying customers.
- Create high-quality content. Your content should be well-written, informative, and engaging. It should also be relevant to your target audience.
- Promote your content. Once you have created great content, you need to promote it so that people can find it. Share your content on social media, email it to your subscribers, and reach out to other websites in your industry and ask them to share it.
