Low Hanging SEO Fruit

Filed Under SEO 

Larry BraunerSEO is an ongoing process. Yet, in some cases, there’s low hanging fruit to be picked, and much can be accomplished with remarkably little effort.

Wouldn’t you agree that it’s much much better if your content appears on the 1st page of Google than on the 2nd? I do hope you’re nodding your head yes with me.

Useful SEO Hack

Low Hanging SEO FruitHow much effort would be required to move from the 2nd page to the 1st page? That depends, but if your content is at the very top of the 2nd page, it only needs to move up one position, from 11th to 10th, to be at the bottom of the 1st page.

Moving your content from the 4th rank to the 3rd would make a greater difference but may not be achievable, and even if it is, it would require much more effort than moving from 11th to 10th, since the 10th isn’t as competitive as the 3rd.

So when your content ranks at or near the top of the 2nd page in Google or other search engines, nudging it up to the 1st page is low-hanging juicy SEO fruit that you mustn’t neglect to pick.

    Moving to the 2nd page in Google is a very easy task.

    I think, there are different Google algorithms or different steps; each step or algorithm makes it more difficult to move the top 1st 2nd or 3rd page in Google.

    As you said, we have to do much more to get in the top 3. What works to move to the 4th through the 10th, will not work to move to 1st, 2nd or 3rd. For me [the effort] is like starting over.
