Declines in website ranking can be difficult especially if you’re a beginner at SEO and especially if you’ve put a significant amount of effort and time into promoting your website. You can complain about it the whole day, but make sure that you will not leave things that way. I know how hard it is to accept that your website’s rankings dropped. When I was just starting out, I felt futile and irresponsible when my site’s rankings dropped from 5 to 0. However, the experience became a learning process for me. That’s why I take my clients’ website ranking concerns with sincerity.
So is there any point in crying over rankings? There is nothing wrong with being a crybaby over website rankings. Just learn how to get up so you can start working on re-establishing your website’s rank. Crying or moping around won’t boost your website’s ranking. You have to face your computer and check your website so you can mull over your mistakes.
Sometimes it takes a ranking disaster for us to realize that something’s lacking in our optimization processes. Link building, the most neglected aspect of SEO, was then my pet peeve and my weakness. Honestly, I hate exerting the tremendous effort needed in building relationships with other blog owners. That’s why I had countless failures in my SEO track record. Many think that linking with 20 blogs is enough to get a website to the top, but successful link building requires commitment, not numbers.
Building links isn’t limited to blogs alone. There are countless ways of link building. You can build links through submitting articles, backlinking and doing other inbound linking techniques. However, if you think about it, the essence of building networks through link building explains why it can be a key in getting high rankings. The more links there are to your website, the bigger are your website’s chances of getting noticed. This can result in high website traffic.
Check your website.
Blaming failures on many factors is natural. However, you have to check your own backyard, too. Some of your website’s structural content may be unsound. Double-check your site’s title tags, page titles, URL, and internal links. You can have your site checked by a pro web developer to see if your site contain any redirect errors.
Sometimes, your site’s status isn’t affected by the website itself. It may also have something to do with your attitude as a website owner. SEO isn’t a process you can stop doing for periods of time and expect to be successful. You have to take your SEO campaigns seriously. If you are passionate about what you do, you’ll make time for it.
