Search Engine Ranking Factors

A search engine ranking study by SEMRush, Ahrefs, SimilarWeb, Backlinko and MarketMuse showed that the most important factor in ranking in the top 10 search engine page results was referring domains; in other words; backlinks.

search ranking factors

  • Number of referring domains
  • Total external backlinks
  • URL length
  • Webpage link authority (Ahrefs URL Rating)

Backlinks from relevant, highly rated websites are the number 1 factor in boosting organic traffic.

Without high quality, relevant links from other websites to yours, your website will stand still in the search engine result pages.

Your web pages may also get overtaken by other websites who are proactively promoting their web pages, improving their page content and proactively building links.

It’s a fact that links from other relevant websites are the NUMBER ONE REASON for higher rankings and more organic traffic from Google.

Most business owners do little proactive link building and most web designers and web developers are too swamped designing and coding to do this type of work.

How link building improves organic search traffic

Here is a screenshot from a client's Google Analytics account showing an improvement in organic traffic after proactive links were built to their website.

Why do websites link to other websites?

Adding an external link to a relevant resource or article can help to explain to Google what your web page is about.

If you are commercially orientated that can help boost your position in Google a little.

I wrote a blog post about making websites mobile friendly.

The first link on my page points to a Wikipedia article about responsive web design.

Now take this BBC News article written about a company fined for providing poor broadband service.

Hovering over the coloured text on a page shows a link.

This link goes to an external website; a backlink for Ofcom.org from bbc.co.uk.

The writer of this BBC article linked to a news article from the telecoms regulators; Ofcom.

Journalists generally have to cite the source of official news to back up their story.

Therefore Ofcom gets a backlink from the BBC.

Search engine optimisation is not on page, SEO is 90% link building

If you look at the features pages of companies like WordPress, Magento, Shopify, SquareSpace, Adobe Muse and Business Catalyst they all say something like "We support SEO best practices like customisable H1, title, and meta tags".

Many business owners think that adding a page title and meta description to a web page their SEO work is done.

On Page SEO is dead !

The marketing director of Ahrefs posted a link to their blog post that on page optimisation was dead.

He caused a bit of controversy.

What his study really meant to say was just putting your keyword in your page title, page header and meta description won't help much in trying to rank high in Google.

Every research and study I've read points to backlinks being the number one factor in ranking web pages higher.

The best place to start link building

When you have a brand new website you want to start with 'citation' link building.

You can start adding your website to your Facebook page, Google My Business page, Yelp, and Yellow Pages.

You can also submit your website to local industry directories which some of the the foundation signals and links you need to put in place to show the search engines you are a legitimate business.

I've published a detailed list of citations and backlinks here.

The next step is to get links from industry body websites.

Some of these industry bodies will charge you an annual fee for using their accreditation and most have a directory of suppliers on their website where you can add and earn your high quality, authoritative industry links.

Beyond citation and industry body backlinks, many businesses and web professionals stop link building.

The next stage that website owners and content creators turn to is writing content to get backlinks.

Creating relevant, helpful, compelling web content

The aim of Google and other search engines is to provide the user with the most relevant and useful content and they’ll reward those web pages that do that with higher positions in the search results.

When there are thousands of relevant and similar pages that are useful for the user, Google will tend to display the most trusted websites or the website with relevant links pointing to their page.

Types of white hat link building

There are many different strategies and tactics SEO experts use to build links to websites and web pages.

Our favourite strategy is called broken link building as we believe, with this method, that we are doing a service for Google and website owners in fixing old dead links with new, improved links.

  • Resource Page
  • Link Roundups
  • Guest Posting
  • Sponsored posts
  • Link reclamation
  • Blog posts comments
  • Forum links
  • Infographics
  • Press Links

Avoid Black hat link building

You want to avoid services that sell pyramid links, tiered links or who sell guest posts on low quality irrelevant websites.

You also want to avoid buying links people who advertise on websites like Fiverr; if you value your website you don’t want someone you don’t know or trust touching your most precious digital asset.

Here’s a screenshot from Ahrefs showing the increased backlinks to Platonik.co.uk using broken link building.
