3 SEO Hacks for Improving Rankings in SERPS

SEO is a very important part of digital marketing and business. With SEO, you can improve your rankings in SERPS (search engine results pages) and get more visitors to your site. This blog post will show you 3 SEO hacks that can help improve your rankings! SEO hacks are SEO techniques that tend to work better than others. SEO is constantly changing, so SEO hacks might not always work.


SEO Hack #1

Don’t Build Massive Amounts of Links on Directories

You should not build massive amounts of links on directories. SEO experts only recommend having up to 30% of your total backlinks come from directories. Directory submissions are still great for SEO, but you shouldn’t spam them because Google may punish your website with a penalty if they don’t like the quality of sites that link to yours.

If you do want directory submissions, then I suggest choosing one or two high-quality directories per niche that have strict requirements and submit manually (don’t use software). To find good niches for SEO, check out the SEO Submissions Tool.

SEO Hack #2

Monitor Image & Video Ranking

You should monitor image and video ranking in SEO to see how your competitors are doing. This is called SERP (search engine results page) monitoring, and it allows you to keep an eye on the competition so that you can stay one step ahead of them. You need a strategy for SEO because if you don’t have one then someone else will.

To do SEO without a plan is like going into battle with no weapons. Checking the rankings of images and videos could be very important for digital marketers because they might change their content based on what ranks well. For example, if their competitor has lots of high-quality pictures ranked than maybe they would create more pictures or use higher resolution ones themselves. The same thing goes for YouTube SEO.

SEO Hack #3

Watch Out for Competitors

You should always watch out for competitors in SEO. Competitors are constantly changing their SEO strategies so you need to do the same or your website will be left behind. For example, if you see that a competitor is building lots of links on directories than maybe you would change your strategy and start doing it too. However, if they were built by spammers then Google might punish both websites which means neither of them get any benefit from creating backlinks with directory submissions.

To find good keywords for SEO I suggest using SEO Spyglass because it allows users to spy on competitors’ top keywords without getting caught. It also provides tools like rank checker & more.
