Improve Google Search Ranking

How to improve Google search ranking for free fast and easyI am going to show you how to improve Google search ranking for free. This is going to be the slap in the face that you need.

I am not going to pull any punches here.

If you are struggling to hit the top spot you are going to love this.

It’s quite a bit of work, but this strategy works.

This is what you are going to need:

  • 15 x 700 – 1000 word articles
  • 15 x 200 word articles
  • 3 x 500 – 600 word articles
  • 4 x images bare minimum
  • 3 x videos

If you are not prepared to work for that top spot then leave now, this is not for you.

I will cover each and every step in detail, do not miss a step.

If you miss a step then that is the exact reason why you are not ranking number one.

There is no reason to email me asking why you are not number one. You know why, you have missed a step and got lazy.

Good news, you are going to improve your ranking with this strategy.

I can’t stress this enough…. ALL OF THE STEPS ARE IMPORTANT…..DO NOT MISS ONE.

This is the strategy I use to improve Google search ranking fast and freeI have ranked many sites over and over using this strategy.

The strategy takes a bit of work, but it is free.

The ranking sticks too.

I used this strategy on one of my dog breed sites back on April 30th 2015, the page still ranks number 1 today.

The strategy works on easy to medium seo competition score keywords with just one shot of backlinks.

More competitive keywords will need another round of backlinks.

So basically just rinse and repeat until you hit the top spot.

Before we get started on the backlinks we need to take care of our on-site seo. Do not miss this step, it is very important.

Improve Google Search Ranking In 2 Steps:

Step 1: On-Site Optimisation

If you are going to miss this step then do not bother with the rest of this strategy.


I have had so many emails asking me “why isn’t my site no. 1 yet?”. The first thing I do is look at your site, then I Google your keyword and see that the top ranking site has far superior quality content to yours.

You need to have the best content to rank number one.

You need to have the best content to rank no. 1 in Google searchSo, Google your keyword in the Google you are trying to rank on ( or or whatever) and take a look at the content on the top ten ranking sites.

I always pick keywords where the top ranking sites have weak and very thin content. This makes ranking a whole lot easier.

Google’s aim is to have the best, most informative content ranking number one. So give this to them.

If you have poor content it does not matter how many quality backlinks you get, you will still fail to hit the top spot.

Here is why;

Visitors will come to your site from the SERPs and realise that the content is not that great. Then they will hit the back button almost immediately. This in turn tell’s Mr Google that your content isn’t really that good or useful at all.

I can’t stress this first step enough: YOUR CONTENT IS IMPORTANT!

It is very simple, yet so many people fail to follow this rule.

You are going to write more informative content than your competitors. Don’t get lazy and leave it. Just do it, if you really want to rank number one you will get onto it right now.

How to make your content the best; (do not miss any point)

Your content has to be the best, so make sure that it is fully optemisedI told you this was going to be the slap in face you need 🙂

  • Have in depth content with 2000 words or more. I know that this is not sometimes possible, so just make sure you have more content than the top ranking sites. If the top ranking site has 3000 words then you are going to pump out 3500 words. Just do it…..or get yourself an easier keyword where the top ranking sites have less content.
  • Have bullet points and numbered lists in your content.
  • Make sure that your keyword appears at the top, in the middle and at the end of your content. Your keyword should be in the first and very last paragraph. Make sure your keyword density is not too high, around 1% is great.
  • At the very minimum have three images in your content. Make sure that you have your keyword in at least one ALT tag. Get the keyword in the image file name if you can.
  • Drop a related informative video into your post. You can create one yourself, or use any from YouTube.
  • Make sure that your chosen keyword is in the main heading (the H1 TAG)
  • Get the keyword into another heading on the page (the H2 TAG)
  • Your chosen keyword needs to be in your URL extension.
  • Put your keyword at the start of your TITLE TAG. Make sure your TITLE is unique.
  • Put your keyword in the DESCRIPTION TAG.
  • Have an outbound link to a related article. Google your keyword, do not link out to one of the top ranking sites. That would be stupid.
  • Drop some links to other related content on your site.
  • Make sure your content is adding something different to what is already ranking in the top 10.

That’s your content fully optimised.

A WordPress Plugin Called “WordPress SEO By Yoast” will help you optimise your content. Take a look at the video below to see it in action:

Feels good to have the best content doesn’t it?

Makes it so much easier to promote, share and get shares.

Now I hope you understand how important this step is.

If you miss it you are not going to rank number one.

You will be throwing your money, time and effort away promoting your site if you miss on-page optimisation.

Building backlinks will be pointless if you miss this step.

Internal links:

Get some internal links from other content on your siteInternal links are very important too.

We are going to give Google bot a big signal as to what our content is about.

Go through all the content on your site and drop an internal link to your new content.

I find using exact match anchor text here very effective.

Do not miss this step thinking that it doesn’t matter, because it does.

If you have a new site you should drop some more content on there. The sole purpose of this is to get an internal link to the post you have just created.

How many internal links you do is up to you.

As a bare minimum I always do 2 internal links.

Go ahead and do those 2 internal links, it does not take long. Make sure you use exact match anchor.


The work has only just started. If you have chosen a profitable keyword it is well worth it.

I might sound harsh so far. I am not doing this to be horrible. I want you to succeed, and this is the way to do it.

Before we build any backlinks at all we are going to get some social signals. You can get them yourself for free using

You can also get this done using an SEO CLERKs gig for just $1. This will give you 1500 powerful social signals from all the major platforms.

You can get a lot of this work done using these cheap seo packages. You can save a lot of time getting other people to set up the Web 2.0 sites for you.

If this is your first time ranking a website I highly recommend you do all the work yourself.

Step 2: Free Backlinks

This strategy will rank your site no. 1 on Google searchIt feels good to have the best content.

So let’s get it ranking number one on Google search.

First you need to make sure that your content is indexed in Google search.

Go to the respective Google search engine that you want to rank on and pop your content URL in there.

If your site shows in the SERPs then you are indexed and ready to pump out the backlinks.

Do not panic if you are not indexed. Just pop your URL into Google Console and in a few minutes you will be.

Our first 5 backlinks are going to be from Web 2.0 sites.


Let’s get started.

Web 2.0 Backlinks:

First of all we are going to write 5 unique articles.

Do not scrape them.

You will not use scraped content in this strategy.

The Web 2.0 sites that I created in 2015 are still live and get traffic. I have not touched them since.

Why do you think they are still alive and indexed?

Because I have added useful content to them, not spam.

You are going to write unique content yourselfYou are going to write the articles.

Do not compromise here, you have to write the articles yourself. If you are going to scrape content then do not come crying to me wondering why the strategy did not work.

Open up your preferred word processing software and get started.

To start off you are going to write 5 articles that range from 700 to 1000 words in length.

You are going to post these articles on free Web 2.0 sites.

Before you post the content onto the web 2.0 sites you are going to create and upload a video to YouTube. We do this first because we want to embed the video into our Web 2.0 posts.

The video can be a simple recording of your new web content that you published your money site. You can create a free video fast, upload to YouTube in a few minutes using

Make sure that you link to your money page from the YouTube video description area. Use a full URL anchor including http. Add a unique description for the video including your keyword a few times, write about 100 to 200 words here.

Also, make sure that the video file name has your keyword in there. Make sure the video Title has your keyword in there too.

You can set up all the Web 2.0 sites under 1 email address. I did not use any “hide my IP” service or VPN. All of this was done for free.

Make sure that your exact keyword is in the sub domain URL of the Web 2 site.

Always have your exact keyword in the article main heading and sub heading.

Make sure that the keyword appears at the top, in the middle and at the bottom of the content.

The same principles apply here as it did for your money site page.

First Web 2.0 Site: 

My first Web 2.0 site is built on It is still live and indexed in Google search today, even though it was first published on 30th April 2015.

Create a WordPress Web 2.0 site and free backlink

The article I published on this site has:

  1. Unique content, which is just over 1000 words in length.
  2. Includes 4 images in the post.
  3. Has 4 related YouTube videos in the post.
  4. Links out to a related Wikipedia page.
  5. Has an exact match anchor text backlink to my money site.

Second Web 2.0 Site:

The second Web 2.0 site I built was done on the platform. This particular site is still alive and kicking today.

Create your second Web 2.0 site on the Webnode platform

The content I published on this site has:

  1. Unique content that I wrote myself. The content is 1000 words in length.
  2. Has 3 images in the post.
  3. Has 1 video in the post.
  4. Has an outbound link to a related site, not a competitors site.
  5. The anchor text used is my money site URL. Full open URL with http:// and everything else in between.

Third Web 2.0 Site:

The third web 2.0 site is built on

Set up your free Weebly Web 2.0 site

  1. Has a unique 717 word article.
  2. Has 1 image in the post.
  3. Has 1 video in the post.
  4. Has an outbound link to a Wikipedia page.
  5. The anchor text used is “click here”.

Fourth Web 2.0 Site:

The fourth Web 2.0 site is built on

Next you need to set up your Jimdo Web 2.0 site including content and backlink

  1. 848 word unique content.
  2. 1 image in the post.
  3. 1 video in the post.
  4. Links out to a related site. Not a competitor.
  5. The anchor text used is URL. It is “” and not the full open URL as before.

Fifth Web 2.0 Site:

The fifth piece of content is published on the very popular Web 2.0 platform.

Set up your Bravenet Web 2.0 site

  1. 851 word article.
  2. 10 images.
  3. 1 video.
  4. Links out to two related sites.
  5. The anchor text used is a long tail variation on my keyword. For example, if my keyword is “best cheese graters” then my anchor text on this Web 2 site would be “6 of the best cheese graters in the world today”. Make sure your keyword is in there.

That’s the web 2.0 sites taken care of. These links alone will improve Google search ranking.

All of these sites are still live today.

This is because I added valuable content to them.

The sites are live and my ranking has stuck, that is the key here.


You have to be certain that the articles are unique, add a little something of value and make them relevant. The only way to do this is to write them yourself.

Do not get lazy and miss this step. YOU WILL NOT RANK No. 1 IF YOU DO.

You can index the Web 2.0 backlinks using Google Console.

Do not index all 5 on the same day.

Index one each day over the next 5 days.

Slow and steady always wins the race here.

DOC Shares:

Now we are going to get some very quick and easy DOC share backlinks.

Now get some free DOC Share backlinks

This step is not as labour intensive as the Web 2.0 backlinks part.

It’s time to open up your favourite word processing software again.

You need 5 articles around 200 words each.

Make sure:

  • Keyword is in main heading
  • Keyword is in sub heading
  • Keyword is in first paragraph and last paragraph
  • Keyword is in Doc save name.
  • Have 2 or 3 images in the document.

You will use a long tail anchor on all of these backlinks.

Save the documents and upload to these DOC share sites:

All of the backlinks that I created on these sites are still live and indexed.

Go ahead and index each URL using Google Console.

Index 1 backlink per day over the next 5 days.

Niche relevant blog comments:

Now go ahead and get niche relevant blog comment backlinksNow we need to get some niche relevant blog comments.

I use a $1 SEO CLERK gig for this step.

You can do this step yourself for free. Go to step 5 on my free backlinks post for information on how to get it done.

Only use your name as the anchor text.

We want to build an anchor text profile that looks real, not a spam one.

Do not use your keyword or URL as the anchor on blog comments.

These backlinks will be from sites that are already indexed in Google search. You do not need to submit the URL to Google Console this time.

Image Share:

These are the fastest backlinks that you are going to get.

You are going to get 2 image share backlinks from:


You are going to get the backlink from the image description area.

Your anchor text will be your full post URL including http.

Now you are going to get some free backlinks from image share sites

Make sure that your image save file has the keyword in there.

Make sure that the image title has your keyword in there.

Make sure that the short image description (5o words or so) has your keyword in there.

Don’t forget to get these backlinks indexed too.


Now you are going to power up the backlinks you have just created.

If you want to improve Google search ranking without Tier 2 backlinks take a look at my expired Web 2.0 backlinks post.

Web 2.0:

Open up your word processing software again.

You are going to write a 500 to 600 word article. The article I used to rank my dog breed site was 610 words in length.

When you write the article keep in mind that you are going to link out to the 10 URLs that we have created on Tier 1.

The anchor text we are going to use will be long tail variations on the main selected keyword.

You are only going to do one tier 2 site. This one site will link to the 5 web sites we created earlier. The site will also link to the 5 doc shares that we did.

You are going to publish this content on

Create Tier 2 backlinks using a free Blogger Web 2.0 site

Make sure you have the keyword in the main heading and a sub heading.

Drop some images into the post and also a related video.

Do not link to your money site from this post.

Now go ahead and use Google Console to get the site indexed.

Wiki Backlinks:

Now we are going to get a whopping 3000 contextual wiki backlinks to our doc share and tier 1 web 2.0 backlinks.

I used a $1 SEO Clerk service for this. It is very cheap and well worth the money.

Now you need to do 3000 Tier 2 contextual Wiki backlinks

Ask for 10 backlinks per post, use long tail variations as your anchor text.

That is month 1 complete.

In month 2 we are going to do the same thing again.

We are going to go to YouTube and create and upload a new video.

Then we are going to add another article to each of the web 2.0 sites that we set up in month 1.

Go ahead and do 5 more doc shares on the same sites as before.

Then get some more niche relevant blog comments, do the image shares again too.

On the same site used for tier 2 before add another 600 word article and link to all tier 1 links again.

Go and get the tier 2 wiki backlinks again.

Month 3 is going to be more of the same, only we are going to use different web 2.0 sites on tier 1.

You are going to record and upload a new video to YouTube.

You are going to write 5 more unique articles that are 700 to 1000 words in length.

Set up your next set of Web 2.0 sites for month 3 tier 1 backlinks

You are going to publish this content on these web 2 platforms:


Then you can do 5 more doc share backlinks using the same sites as before.

Forget the image share and blog comments in month 3. You can do them if you want to. I did not do them when I ranked my dog breed site no. 1.

You are going to use a new Web 2.0 site for your Tier 2 backlinks in month 3. You can use this time around.

Set up your final Web 2.0 site on AMP Blogs

You will write a 500 to 600 word article for publication on ampblogs. This site will link to all month 3 tier 1 web 2 sites and doc share URLs.

Then go ahead and get the 3000 contextual wiki backlinks to the tier 1 web 2 sites and doc share URLs.

That is how you can improve Google search ranking the right way.

If you are not number 1 just rinse and repeat until you hit the top spot.


  1. Nick. Great to see another mind blowing post. I was thinking to use a tier 3 blog to link to all tier 2 blogs that you taught in the free backlinks post. I setup the link wheel with the gig you recommended. Then I send wiki backlinks to the tier 3 blog. The problem is the content are spun articles. Do you think this will work?

    • Spun content on tier 3 is not a problem. I have used the same gig to set up the web 2.0 sites, I know it has spun content on there which is not inline with this strategy. I have used spun content on the web 2.0 sites in tier 1 myself, however you run the risk of the sites being removed quickly because of spam. Most of the time the web 2.0 sites stay long enough in the SERPs to push your site to the top, then the backlinks come naturally anyway. This strategy urges you to stay away from spun content, using spun content on the wiki blogs only. It still works using spun content on tier 1 backlinks, however your ranking might not stick if the web 2 sites get deleted or fall from the index. This is a long term strategy that has worked really well for me, if you have the time then I advise writing unique content for your web 2.0 sites.

  2. It looks like whatever links we created, do it slow and steady, it will rank number 1. am I right?

    • Sort of, slow and steady helps. You need to add unique content to the web 2.0 sites, this helps them stick in the SERPs and also helps your ranking hold. This strategy is a long term one, you are building assets for your business here, write the content yourself for the web 2 sites and you will have much success. Obviously you need to focus on the right keywords too…..make sure the top ranking sites have content that you can out do. There are many other factors in play, like the other top ranking sites gaining backlinks too. Focus on writing awesome content first, make sure your site is fully optimised…internal links etc and then crack on with the web 2.0 backlinks….put the time in and it is worth it if you have selected a profitable keyword.

  3. Hey I got in first reply. Well done Nick another great tutorial.

    • Thanks Steve…..put it into action and let me know how you get on….

      • Unfortunately I have 3 projects going on at the moment, but I am still learning from your ideas here. I am trying to take it all in. Just a thought\suggestion how I use the Pintrest browser addon and after I have finished writing an article I click the “P” button and add all the images to Pintrest in seconds all my images are yoasted so have the relevant keywords and show up in GWM without indexing. Just a little bit extra fo rnot much effort or time. What do you think?

        Also, I’ve never got into video, but after reading this post I created3 in an hour, I needed the little nudge you gave me to get started, thanks.

        • Adding Pinterest is a great little trick to get your posts/backlinks indexed without having to use Google Console. I have tried social signals, pinging, social bookmarks in the past to index posts/backlinks but it takes time….thanks for the share though 🙂

          This post was intended to give people the nudge they need….put the effort in and it will pay off….let me know how you get on.

          Did you use to create your videos?

        • Biteable didn’t work for me Nick, there was a a browser or flash problem. Probably my setup on firefox, I have so many add ons its getting slow and cumbersome now 🙂

          I searched around and found and am happy with it. Very easy to use. It has a few limitations, like, max 17 photos and 5 videos a day , though premium is only $6 pm.

          The only drawback is I have found some of the free music offered comes up as copyrighted on you tube and they steal your monetization, but you can use your own music instead if you prefer.

        • That’s a shame about biteable, the videos are easy to create and upload fast to youtube from their server.

 sounds good, I will take a look when I get time.

  4. Woohoo going to use this method on a new keyword I am targeting. It has a score of 33 but even though that number is quite low there is a lot of competition for it. It is basically “wedding photographer xxx” with the xxx being a location. The sites on the first page of google are quite historical and their home pages. Fingers crossed I will crack it with this method as it will bring in a lot of business. Do you think it is worth it knowing that there is a lot of competition out there, despite the keyword difficulty of 33?

    • You will probably need to do 4 months backlink building for keyword difficulty 33….just repeat month 1 again. You need to take a look at the content on the top ranking sites….is the content thin? First of all make sure you have superior content to them, then crank out the backlinks, this strategy will work on every site if you follow each step and don’t miss anything out 🙂

      • Hi I can’t help but to share my local Seo experience.
        For “wedding photography location” consider business citations and co occurrence in the web2.0 s learnt from this post.
        Meaning,instead of backlinks with keywords,mention something like find more about this guest guy wedding photography service at (your biz website or office address).
        For co occurrence set up some Twitter Facebook forum profile using naked URL with your key word close to each other,in a sentence or two.
        Set up a Google plus biz page is important as well.
        Seo clerks palashamed02 will give u 30 citations in different cities.
        Remember,citations and co occurrence for local biz is vital.
        Google gives leeway to build backlinks faster for biz with citations with registered addresss phone numbers bla bla.
        It gives u an edge.
        Further reading,google “gotchseo citations co occurrence” and a very good excellent post from diggity marketing ” improve Google trust rank”.this is for affiliate who wanna fool Google to think that it’s a local biz and teach u how to register an address so that you can start to build links to your citations.
        It’s my explosive kick start for my local biz as well as affiliate marketing.
        Citations is crucial.
        Thank you.Nick.
        Who says black hat grey hat are for the lazy??
        We work as hard as anyone trying to make ends meet and pay the evil taxes.

        • Thanks for sharing Jeff, much appreciated. Black hat is hard work too….but it certainly pays off 🙂

  5. So nick.. in the first month we built 5 web 2.0 link

    Nd in the second month.. do we have a create amd publish from the same sub domain ??

    Example: publish a post from with a link to money site..

    2nd month: publish another articleand link to my money site from the same

    • Hi Chrish,

      In the first month you will do:

      5 x web 2.0 backlinks
      5 x doc share backlinks
      8 x niche relevant blog comments
      2 x image share

      also in month 1 you will do tier 2 backlinks from:

      1 x web 2.0 site
      3000 wiki backlinks

      In month 2 you will publish another article on the same web 2.0 sites that you set up in month 1. will have two articles on there at the end of month 2.

      • Hi Nick,

        In 2nd month, you will publish another article in the same web 2.0 sites that set up in 1st month, but should we link back again to Money Site in this article? or just write unique content is enough?

        Thanks !

        • Hi Frank, yes you need to link back to your money site in the second article you add to the same web 2.0 site your created in month 1.

        • Thanks for your reply, I have other questions:

          1. Total outbound links from web 2.0 are point to Money site. Is there any unnaturally backlinks from Google’s eye?

          2. The 2nd article and 1st article from web 2.0 point to the same page or difference page of Money site?

        • 1. Per post you only want one outbound link to your money site. You will have 2 posts on each web 2.0 site, each post will link to your money site. Not unnatural in Google eyes, you will also link out to other related content in your niche (not your competitors).

          2. The 1st article and the 2nd article on the web 2.0 both link to the same page on your money site. Make sure you link out to other related sites, make sure you do not link to a competitor.

  6. Hi Nick, I’ve been looking at the image shares you are talking about. Signed up to imgur and did as you said, but for the life of me cannot work out how to get a link working in the description, I’ve tried all the ways I can think of bare and html and googled it with no success, any tips please?

    • Sure….

      Sign in…of course LOL…

      TOP LEFT….click upload—–then—–upload images

      Browse file for image to upload….then upload image….

      Above the image click the pencil icon and give your image a title (include your keyword)

      Then click in the description area underneath the image. Simply copy and paste your website URL into the descriptions area….has to be the full URL including http…and all the rest….then add a description with your keyword in there.

      Go to top right of screen and select a topic…then click the green “share to community” button…top right.

      That’s it….then copy and paste your URL and get it indexed…the one I just did is here with working link:

      • Damn it, I wasn’t uploading as a post and sharing I was just uploading image to my gallery, I’m a dumbkoff, thanks for helping an old man out there Nick, much appreciated

        • LOL….no problem 🙂

        • Nick,I can’t seem to get my Imgur link indexed, I checked your one too, and that does not show in google uk either, or am I doing something wrong [again] , yes most likely!

        • I did not try to index mine using Google Console. I have just added it….however it did not index like yours. Does happen sometimes, some index and others don’t….you have to do another one until you get one to index. You could also add some social shares to the imgur and then index those urls….that will certainly get the imgur url indexed.

        • I’ve got myself sorted on imgur now thanks to you Nick. This is a great tip because I put a crappy photo of one of my articles on there and in just 4 hours I’ve had 603 views, amazing. check it out

        • 610 views now and a sweet backlink that will not only push your site up the SERPs but is now sending traffic to your site from imgur….not bad for a few minutes work 🙂
