3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google

 3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google

3 Easy Steps To Get Your First 10k Visitors From Google


Are you new to blogging or you just created your first blog and want to get organic visitors from Google? Here are 3 easy steps that will help you achieve that.

Read below.

Step 1: Finding the right keywords

If you pick the wrong keywords, you’ll find yourself with little to no traffic and, even worse, you’ll find yourself with little to no visits.
These keywords are used in helping your blog to rank high and making it visible on Google first page for visitors to click.
You can find rankable keywords using tools such as Ubersuggest


Step 2: Write content

At this point, you should have a list of keywords. At least 100 keywords per group.

It’s not that hard to get to 100 similar keywords that you can include in one article. It just takes some time to continually search and find them.

In general, as a rule of thumb, I can find 100 keywords in less than 8 minutes. It may take you a bit longer than me at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’ll be easy.

With your newly found keywords, I want you to write an article.

As for your keywords, naturally place them into the article when it makes sense.

What you’ll quickly learn is that you probably won’t be able to “naturally” include all 100 keywords within your article. And that’s fine.


The last thing you want to do is stuff in keywords because you aren’t writing this article for just search engines, you are writing it for people… and the secondary benefit is that search engines will rank it because it contains the right keywords.

Before you make your article live on your site, I want you to keep a few things in mind:

Keep your URLs short – Google prefers shorter URLs.

Include your main keyword in your headline – by having your main keyword in your headline, you’ll be more likely to rank higher.

Include your three main keywords in your meta tags – whether it is your title tag or meta description, include at least three main keywords in them. You won’t fit as many in your title tag, and that’s fine, but you should be able to within your meta description tag.
There are a lot of other things you can do to optimize your articles for SEO, but my goal is to keep this simple. Again, if you just follow these three steps, you’ll hit the 10,000-visitor mark.

So, for now, let’s just keep things simple and once you hit your goal, then you can get into the advanced stuff.

Step 3: Promoting your content

Writing content is only half the battle. Even if you include the right keywords in your article, if you don’t promote, it’s unlikely that it would be read or rank on Google.

So how do you make sure your content is read and ranks well?

Well, first you need to get social shares, and second, you need to get backlinks.

Yes, search engines don’t necessarily rank pages higher when they get more Facebook shares or tweets, but the more eyeballs that see your page the more likely you are to get backlinks.

And the more backlinks you get, generally, the higher you will rank.

How To Get Back Hacked Whatsapp Account

 How To Get Back Hacked Whatsapp Account

How To Recover Hacked Whatsapp Account

Has your Whatsapp Account been hacked? Cry no more.
These days everyone seems to be a victim of hacked accounts. Before it used to be just Facebook accounts that were being targeted by hackers, but now they have migrated to whatsapp. 

WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps in the world. It is owned by Facebook and has more than 2 billion users worldwide.
A lot of people have ignorantly fallen victim to this menace.

How Do Hackers Gain Access To Your Account?

The hackers tries to register your whatsapp number on their phone and a six digit code is then sent to you as a security measure to confirm if you are really the one that's trying to register on a new device.
Once the code has been sent, the hacker then tries to trick you to give them the code using different methods. 
One of the major trick they use is that they will tell you they registered you for an online business where you will be paid daily or weekly if you invest your money and all they need at that mode is your registration code which was sent to you.
Once you ignorantly fall for their trick and send them the code, you have just given them full permission to access and register your account on their device and once this is done, WhatsApp will automatically log you out from your own device. This is because no one Account can be used on two phones at the same time.

If you didn't set up two-step verification on your account, getting back your account at that moment will not be possible because as soon as the hacker successfully registers your account on his/her phone, the first thing the hacker will do so to set up two-step verification and this will make him have uninterrupted usage of your account for as long as the hacker wants.

Here are the few ways you can get back your whatsapp account:

  • Once you find out that your account have been hacked and you've been logged out, the next thing to do is to re-register your whatsapp on your phone and a six-digit verification code will be sent to you via SMS which whatsapp detects and logs you in automatically, while the hacker gets logged out.
  • If the hacker has already enabled two-step verification on your account, you will have to wait for seven days before you can get your account back.
  • In a case whereby you are unable to receive the verification code and the hacker forgot to enable two step verification on your account, you can deactivate your account.
  • To deactivate your account, send an email to Whatsapp Support at [email protected] with the title “Lost/Stolen" & "Pls deactivate my account” in the body. You should get a quick response within 5 minutes in which they will ask for the affected Whatsapp number.
  • Deactivation email to Whatsapp Support
  • Once the account gets deactivate, the hacker will no longer have access to the account and you will have to wait for 30 days before you can reactivate your account.
  • If the hacker has already setup two step verification after accessing your account, the deactivation won't work. You will have to wait for 7 days before deactivating it.

Measures To Keep Your Whatsapp Account safe

  • Once you get hacked and your process of getting back the account failed, the next thing to do is to inform your friends and family through phone call about it, so that they won't fall victim. This is because the hacker will be chatting with them and your friends will think you are the one, not knowing you have been hacked.
  • Never ever give someone your verification code, no matter the person.
  • Ensure you have enabled two-step verification on your account and keep the pin given to you very safe.
  • Always check to make sure your account is not being accessed through whatsapp web. You can do this by clicking the 3 dots at the top right of your whatsapp, select whatsapp web. If you find out you are logged in on any browser, quickly click on log out of computer and all devices, if you are sure you are not the one that logged your account on any computer.

7 Factors That Affect YouTube Video Ranking

 7 Factors That Affect YouTube Video Ranking

Seven 7 YouTube Ranking factors

As we all know, YouTube is the number one online platform in the world where everyone goes to when looking for videos to watch, such as tutorials, comedy, music, entertainment etc. 

A person that uploads video to his or her YouTube channels is know as a Youtuber. As a Youtuber, you need to know that YouTube works as a search engine, and you have to know what factors will help you rank your videos in YouTube SERP

I have clearly outlined 7 of these factors for you. Just make sure you go through each of them thoroughly.

Seven YouTube Ranking Factors

1. Views 
A view is counted if a user has watched at least 30 seconds of a video. A repeated view is counted as a new view, however, multiple views per day from the same user might be treated as spam and not added to the total view count. These measures prevent spam bots from cheating on video watching stats.
Curious fact
 YouTube's business is trading views. It buys views from video creators and sells them to advertisers. That's why views are everything. That's also why YouTube is so vigilant when counting views — it doesn't want to pay for fakes.

2. Subscribers
Subscribers are live accounts of real people who follow your YouTube channel. Closed accounts and spam subscribers (the ones you might have artificially gained through third-party services) will not be counted by YouTube algorithms.

3. Audience retention
Audience retention shows how many people watch your videos till the end, and at what point they stop watching. This is the factor that YouTube considers even more important than clicks and views, so your goal is to create videos that people want to keep watching.

4. Engagement
Your video needs to have comments, replies to comments, and new subscribers after a fresh video has been published. The more activity your videos have, the better the chances of being ranked by the YouTube search engine.

5. Video quality
High-resolution videos are appreciated by both YouTube AI and your audience. With this in mind, you can think of switching to HD format: multiple studies prove that quality videos do get higher ranking positions more often.

6. Channel authority
YouTube offers powerful monetization possibilities, but it requires a lot of analysis and thoughtful content creation all the way through. When your channel reaches impressive figures, usually around 100,000 subscribers, you can go for badge verification and make your channel an official source.

7. Relevance: The best way to make your video rank high on YouTube is to make it match a relevant query. Take your time to analyze what your audience searches for, and what is a trend these days.

How To Fix Google Search Console Indexing Issues

 How To Fix Google Search Console Indexing Issues

How To Fix Google Search Console Indexing Issues

Google search console is a free SEO tool used by bloggers and website owners to gather information and reports about their websites. It gathers reliable data's directly from google.

Before you can get data's about your site from Google, Google must have crawled and indexed your site with your permission.
Most issues site owners have is that their sites cannot be crawled by google or that it can't be Indexed. This is categorized as index issues.

These index issues can be your fault or not, you just have to find out. If your website does not get index by google, it won't appear on search engines. This is why I'm bringing to you how you can fix these index issues. Make sure you read the post to the end.

FIXING INDEXING ISSUES ON SEARCH CONSOLE

To check whether you have any indexing issues, go to Index > Coverage and check the status of your website’s pages.
Pay attention to the Error and Valid with warning sections to figure out what’s wrong with these pages and how to fix the issues.
Search Console index coverage page

Errors

Error report shows all the cases when Google hasn't managed to index your pages because they either don’t exist or have been restricted. 
You can click on each error to a get list of affected URLs. From there, you can click on each URL and have it inspected by Google Search Console. This will result in a quick report on the page’s current indexing status and possible problems. 

Below are the most common indexing errors and some tips on how you can solve them:

Submitted URL cannot be indexed. These types of issues occurs when you have asked Google to index a URL, but the page cannot be accessed. The first thing to look out for, is whether you actually intended for the page to be displayed in search or not.

If you don’t want your page to be indexed, you have to recall your index request so that Google can stop trying. To do that, submit the URL for inspection and see why Google is trying to index it in the first place. The most likely reason is you have added the URL to one of your sitemaps by mistake, in which case just edit the sitemap and remove the URL.

If you do want your page to be indexed, then you have to stop restricting the access. There are six different ways you might be restricting Google, so here is what you can do in each case:

  • Submitted URL marked ‘noindex’ issue can be solved by removing the noindex tag from the page's HTML code, or deleting a noindex header from the HTTP request.

  • Submitted URL not found (404) means that the page does not exist, and the server redirected to 404 status code. Check if the content was relocated, and set up a 301 redirect to a new location.

  • Submitted URL seems to be a Soft 404. This error appears when your server labeled the page with OK status, but Google decided the page is 404 (not found). This may occur because there’s little content on the page, or because the page moved to a new location. Check if the page has good comprehensive content and add some if it’s thin. Or set up a 301 redirect if the content was moved.

  • Submitted URL blocked by robots.txt error can be solved by running the robots.txt tester tool on the URL, and updating the robots.txt file on your website to change or delete the rule.

  • Submitted URL returns unauthorized request (401) means that Google cannot access your page without verification. You can either remove authorization requirements or let Googlebot access the page by verifying identity.

  • Submitted URL returned 403 error happens when Google has no credentials to perform authorized access. If you want to get this page indexed, allow anonymous access.

Once you’ve removed whatever was restricting the access, submit the URL for indexing using the URL inspection tool.

Server error (5xx) occurs when Googlebot fails to access the server. The server may have crashed, timed out, or been down when Googlebot came around. Check the URL with the Inspect URL tool to see if it displays an error. If yes, check the server, see what Google suggests to solve the problem, and initiate validation once again if the server is fine.

Redirect error may occur if a redirect chain is too long, a redirect URL exceeds the max URL length (2 MB for Google Chrome), there’s a bad URL in the chain, or there’s a redirect loop. Check the URL with a debugging tool such as Lighthouse to find out the exact issue.

Valid with warning

If Google indexed your page but is not sure if it was necessary, then the pages will be displayed as valid with warning.

In terms of SEO, warnings may bring you even more trouble than errors, as Google may display the pages that you didn’t want to show.
Search Console valid with warning

Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt warning appears when the page is indexed by Google despite being blocked by your robots.txt file. How to fix this issue? Decide on whether you want to block this page or not. If you want to block it, then add the noindex tag to the page, limit access to the page by login request, or remove the page by going to Index > Removals > New request.


Note: many SEOs mistakenly assume that robots.txt is the right mechanism to hide the page from Google. This is not true — robots.txt serves mainly to prevent overloading your website with requests. If you block the page with robots.txt, Google will still display it in search results.


Indexed without content means the page is indexed, but, for some reason, Google cannot read the content. This may happen because the page is cloaked, or the format of the page is not recognized by Google. To fix this issue, check the code of your page and follow Google’s tips on how to make your website accessible for users and search engines.
