Search for “SEO guide” in Google and you will find a Moz’s guide for SEO. They are ranking on the first position on Google since they are published the same.

Google will up rank your site when users are stick with your search snippet of Google’s search results.
Coming to the idea, This is One of the best SEO techniques I have been using for a year. Have you ever noticed the AdWords ads showing on the first page of the Google?
AdWord ads coming to the first page of Google are well optimized for organic searches. Analyse those ads and take keywords and meta description from them.
I’m not saying just copy the title and meta description. If you are doing so please avoid using like that. Always take the AdWords ads and take keywords from them. Use those keywords in your title and meta description.
In that way, we can improve our CTR. This will eventually help us to improve our organic traffic.
You know how much internal linking affects Google ranking. Let’s take an example. You must be heard about Techcrunch and Mashable. Those are giants in the SEO marketing.
They almost have answers to each query asked on Google. Techcrunch rank because they have a huge number of backlinks.
But, Mashable ranks better than Tech-crunch because they are having more internal links. Why don’t use the same idea on your blog also?

- Adding links to your sidebar. [ Nav menu, categories]
- Make sure links containing natural keywords or anchor text.
