It's completely FREE and easy to implement, so you can do it right away and increase the chances of achieving first page rankings on SERP (Search Engine Results Page).

How I Achieved 1st Page Rankings

I am not going to brag too much about this, but if you want to make money online, you need to know how to get traffic to your website, make sense?

That's why it is of utmost importance to know how to get ranked on the BIGGEST search engine on earth, Google.

Google can be a d***, more often than you think. And you may never get ranked on Google if you don't know what to do.

However, you can't entirely blame Google for it, Google knows who to rank and who not to rank. Google has responsibilities.

So as long as you are providing valuable information or something people really want to read, you already won half the battle.

The tips I am about to give you are like the jam on the peanut butter sandwich for your PB&J sandwich.

It makes it even better but it won't work if your content is crap.

Here are some first page ranking proofs that I have achieved by implementing these 7 advanced SEO Tips.


I ranked on the first page of Google for the keyword "Is Beauty Society a Scam?", and I am in the 1st position here.

I actually got ranked in 3 minutes but I forgot to make a screenshot.

So in screenshot here, it shows 34 minutes, which is still impressive, right?

Ranked on 1st page 3rd position

Ranked on the third position on the number one page of Google for this keyword. Not too shabby.

1st page and 3rd pos

In the 4th position here on this one. Implementing these tips will not guarantee you a 1st page ranking.

But it will for sure improve the chances of getting ranked 100% faster.

Lemongrass Spa 1st Page

And on this one, I got ranked on the first page within 1 MINUTE !!

Ranked in 60 seconds, that's like counting to 60 and BAM, first page. I hope I have your undivided attention by now, this works.

7 SEO Tips To Achieve 1st Page Rankings

Is Google
  1. Meta Title
  2. Meta Description
  3. Keyword In Content (Preferably, First 100 Words)
  4. Alt Tag Within Your Images
  5. Internal Links
  6. External Links (Outbound Links)

TIP 1: Meta Title

First off, I would like to tell you the small difference between a post headline and a meta title. A lot of people get confused between the two.

So, a meta title is not the same as a post headline, it is intended for search engine. Whereas the page or past headline is, yea, for the post or page.

A meta title tells the search engine what your post is about, it will have a better grasp of what your content is actually about. That's why a meta title is so important for SEO purposes.

It helps speed up the process.

Meta Title

A meta title is the title that shows on SERP, the search engine results page.

A post headline, however, is what you will see on your post itself, it is the headline of your post as the name suggest.

The two can be used interchangeably, that's why you see meta titles and post titles having the same exact keywords or phrase in them.

But sometimes, people would change the headline title for specific reasons.

Google will typically show the first 50-60 words of your meta title, so it is recommended to write your title in less than 60 words. that way the complete title will be shown on SERP.

All In One SEO Pack - Meta title

If you are using WordPress to build your websites, and the  All In One SEO Pack, it will look like this. 

Yes, I know, my meta title is more than 80 words but that is fine, it is up to you how you want your title to be for specific reasons.

The important thing here is, your target keyword must be in your meta title, and as you can see, mine is there.

TIP 2: Meta Description

Just like the meta title, your keyword must be mentioned on your meta description. 

Your meta description is the small description box you need to fill in to let Google know what your content is about, so basically a very short summary of your written article.

Try to keep it short, no more than 150 characters unless it is necessary.

And if Google considers it good enough, they will show that exact description on SERP.

If you are using All In One SEO Pack then this is how it will look like inside your WordPress.

All in one SEO - Meta Description

If you look at the preview snippet area, you will see exactly how it will show on SERP if it gets ranked.

If you are creative, this is the time to be creative. Having your keyword inside your meta description is good for Google purposes but writing an enticing description is equally important.

Here's why, if your description is in-depth, straightforward and grabs the reader's attention, the reader will most likely click on it.

The more readers click through it, the higher your click-through rate will become and that in turn, shows Google that people are liking it.

People liking your content is all that Google cares about at the end of the day, so yes, your rankings will improve.

TIP 3: Keyword In Content

Can I say that this is actually a no brainer? Haha.

Of course you need to have your focused keyword within your content but how often and where?

This has been on many SEO discussions over the years.

Old techniques on putting keyword in rich content is by stuffing it or by keyword density is no longer effective.

If you are not new to online marketing or SEO in particular, you will know that the old SEO experts used to tell you that you should mentioned the targeted keyword as often as possible.

Nowadays, that's not the case, in a matter of fact, that could get you penalized or banned by Google.

So the new rules are, write normally, and as colloquial as possible.

If the keyword is necessary to be mentioned within a specific part of the article/post then by all means, use it.

The days where stuffing your content rich article with keywords, called keyword stuffing is over.

It can easily be considered spamdexing and you will pay heavily once you get caught by the Search Engines.

Your keyword needs to be within your content at least once and preferably within the first 100 words of your article or post, that's all.

TIP 4: Alt Tag Within Images

Just as how your content is getting ranked on Google, so are your images from your post or article.

So, the question is, why wouldn't you optimize your images for good rankings?

Google loves images, so a post with relevant images incorporated into the article is proven to rank better by SEO experts.

Alt Text Within An Image

The primary purpose for Alt Text is to help describe your image to readers who are unable to see them, the ones that are visually impaired. 

And it also helps Google decide what your image is about.

So, both cases are important to Google, as one will help improve the overall user-experience and the other one tells them what you're talking about.

TIP 5: Internal Links

an Internal link is basically a hyperlink that is pointed to other posts or pages within your website. 

Internal Link

Like this here for example "Affiliate Marketing Guide", it is pointing to another post from this website.

Internal linking to other pages or posts within your website can also share some the of link juice to your other pages and posts.

In SEO terms, sharing "link juice" is like sharing some of your page's authority or value with another page or post.

This is something Google approves, see it as a sign that tells Google this particular post is worth it, the content here is worth checking on and it holds some value.

All of this will in turn improve your overall website rankings.

However, only link back to a different article or post when it fits. So don't over do it.

TIP 6: External Links

External linking, just like internal linking, gives Google the idea that your post or page has content equity.

External Link

The difference between an internal link and an external link is that an internal link points a link to the same domain or website, whereas an external link, links to a different website.

It may sound counter-intuitive, why would you share "link juice" to another website?

Linking to other high-authority websites has many benefits.

It is like letting a wrench or a spanner fall on the floor just to grab Google's attention on what you are doing, and what you are doing is offering value to your readers by linking to established websites with authority. 

So that definitely helps with your SEO purposes.

TIP 7: Embed Video

Embedding a video has obvious benefits if you look at it from a SEO perspective.

  • Having a video embedded onto your blog post will give readers the choice to watch the video about something you're explaining instead of reading it, this is a big improvement to user experience. (P.s Search Engines love this)
  • When there's a video on your blog post, that will increase the time a user is on your website. The longer a user stays at your website, the better. A user's time on your website is a valuable SEO factor.

And the easiest way to embed a video on your post is through YouTube.

Embed YouTube Video

It is completely legal if the video has the embed button there, so don't worry.

Another way to embed a video on your blog if you don't want to use someone else's video is by making a video yourself.

But the majority of people still have a problem with that, and not only because they're camera shy but also because the video you are going to make is most likely not as professional.

Unless you are a YouTuber or someone who already has a bunch of experience within that field, it's better to just make use of YouTube.

BONUS: Smart Affiliate SEO Tips

Here are 5 more bonus tips for you, something that helped me achieved  not only first page rankings but first page ranking within 1 minute, and more 🙂

BONUS 1: Submit URL On Google Search Console

Firstly, if you haven't set up your website with Google Search Console yet, follow this guide to help you set it up before we move on.

Or just watch this quick video on how to do that.

Submitting your URL for indexing is like asking Google to crawl your newly published article right away. Simply copy the URL of your newly published article and then submit it.

Inspect URL On Google Search Console

Once it is done loading, you can then press on "request indexing" to finalize the process.

Request Indexing On Search Console

Keep in mind that you don't have to do this all the time but doing this will definitely help with getting indexed and ranked MUCH faster.

BONUS 2: YouTube Discussion Box

Submit your URL to your YouTube discussion box. If you don't have a YouTube Channel, create one, it's FREE.

The reason for this is also very simple. Who owns the second biggest search engine (YouTube) in the world? Yep, you guessed it, Google.

So this makes perfect sense that Google will see this as a plus point for ranking.

Before this, you could easily post your URL on Google Plus but since Google Plus no longer exist, the next best thing to do submit it to, is on your YouTube discussion box.

YouTube Discussion Box

BONUS 3: Resubmit Sitemap

Resubmitting your sitemap is actually not the most important thing to do, especially if you are updating your content or if you are publishing frequently.

Because Google will regularly update your content if you publish very often, automatically.

And the sitemap is a map that holds your website's data, so what happens when you resubmit your sitemap is Google will update the database.

That's why it is not the most important thing to do if you are posting twice or three times a week.

However, it doesn't hurt if you do 🙂

BONUS 4: Post On Social Media

Many SEO experts say that social signals is a ranking factor, and I agree with them.

Once you published your article, just copy the URL and post it to all your existing social media platforms. Don't forget to write something with it, something enticing or attention grabbing to improve interactions.

The ones I use are:

  1. Facebook
  2. LinkedIn
  3. Reddit
  4. YouTube

Here's an example why it is so powerful, especially Reddit.

Ranked On 2nd and 7th Position

As you can see from the picture, my article is ranked on the first page on the 2nd and 7th position, but how is that even possible?

I literally took 2 spots on the first page of Google that people are dying to even be there.

And the answer is, REDDIT!

I shared my URL on Reddit with a small description about the article right after I published it, and guess what, it is also ranking on the first page.

Shared URL On Reddit

It doesn't take much to do this and it's completely FREE, so please, do it!

Bonus 5: Request Comments

And the last bonus tip I have for you to improve your SEO rankings, to get ranked on the 1st page as fast as possible is this -> requesting comments.

Comments are so underrated, what people forget, is that every comment you receive on your post is an additional piece of content to help you rank.

Receiving comment is just like social signals, it tells Google there are interactions within your post so people must be liking it.

This will do so much good to your overall SEO.

There are two ways for you to get comments:

  1. One is by receiving them naturally when someone finds your content/article, and asked a question related to your content or shared an opinion or experience that's related to your content.
  2. By requesting high quality comments

I do both but in order to receive comments naturally from people, my article needs to get ranked first.

That's why I request comments first. And I do this by requesting comments from a platform called Wealthy Affiliate.

But to do that, you need to first create an account and become a premium member. There is a free membership option but only premium members from WA are granted access to Sitecomments to request comments.

Look, this step is totally up to you. Requesting comments doesn't guarantee you rankings but it will most certainly help speed things up.

My Final Words

Whether or not you can get ranked is completely dependent on a variety of things. Every one of these steps is merely a facet.

There is only so much you can do, write quality content, implement SEO friendly tricks, and staying consistent.

But how well your entire website rank depends on numerous factors, your niche, your competition, your content quality, your domain age, etc.

What I have taught you here, are the simple stuff that most people overlook and is proven to make a difference.

If you have implemented all of these steps, and you still don't see any changes to your rankings, don't stress, don't freak out, alright?

Sometimes it can take a while before Google picks up the changes.

Stay consistent and be patient.

    • Hi,

      A week is actually quite fast. How old is your website? and how often do you publish content, and last but not least, what is your website’s niche?

      All of this matters, you need to put into consideration the difficulty of getting ranked based on all the above-mentioned factors.

      SEO takes time, remember that 🙂

      Best of luck!

  • Hi Kayin. This post is packed with so many useful tips. I didn’t know that re-submitting sitemap didn’t do any harm. And I didn’t know that discussions on YouTube could have a positive impact for SEO on our page.

    I have a question: when we’re writing title and alt tag for our pictures: Should we use underscore to separate words?

    Option 1: Family_playing_with_their_dog.

    Option 2: Family playing with their dog.

    I’ll start following these tips. Thank you very much!

    • Hi Ann,

      Resubmitting your sitemap won’t do you any harm no but if you are posting like 3 times a week or so then it’s not really necessary to do that.

      YouTube is owned by Google, it would only make sense, don’t you think? Haha

      And the answer to your question regarding the Alt Text is no, you don’t have to. Just fill in the title like you would with any title.

      Like this: Family Playing With Their Dog (I like to capitalize every first letter of my words)

      Glad I could help, I am sure you will reach many first page rankings very soon 🙂

      Best of luck!
