Google First Page Achieved. Now what?
Great! Your website finally made it to a Google first page position for certain keywords or phrases you believe searchers will find you with. You are not done!
Congratulations, you’ve achieved a goal of SEO. Your website is on a Google 1st page for a specific keyword. Although your website is valued by Google enough to place it on their first page, it’s possible that position will change tomorrow, next week or anytime in the future. You or your webmaster must continually monitor your website for search engine results positions (SERPs) and take action when an important keyword drops off the Google first page.
The goal is to get on and stay on the Google first page for targeted keywords.
There are many factors (page speed, backlinks, HTML tags, snippets, time spent by visitors on your website…) that Google considers and measures to rank on what page a web page should be on for specific keywords.
Why might your first page position change?
Three possible reasons:
- Something about your website / web page changed.
- Google changed their ranking algorithms.
- A competitor(s) improved something about their website / web page and knocked you off Google’s first page search engine results page (SERP).
You or your webmaster must analyze to discover what you could improve to get back to that first page position.
