Don’t you wish Google just told you how to get more search traffic? Well, they do. Hey, everyone, I’m Neil Patel and, today, I’m going to teach you how to get more search traffic using Google Search Console. The first thing I want you to do is log into your Search Console. Click on the Search Analytics.
From there, you can end up seeing your traffic stats the way Google sees it. Click on Pages. When you click on Pages, you get a list of all the pages that are driving you search traffic, right, in order from the most popular to the least popular. Click on a page that you want to increase the search traffic for, and you’ll get a list of the traffic that’s just for that one page. Then click on Queries, and then, you’ll see a list of all the keywords that drive search traffic to that page.
Now that you have that list, the second thing you need to do is go into the blog post or webpage that’s getting all that search traffic, and integrate those keywords within the content. You can’t just stuff your article or your webpage with these new keywords that you’re not already including within your page, right, because once you add them, you should get more search traffic. You got to also update your content and make it more thorough, more detailed, and naturally blend in those new keywords. If it’s not natural, you won’t do well. People will see that you’re just stuffing keywords.
They’re going to bounce right off your webpage, and it’s going to hurt you. The third thing you have to do is also add those keywords, at least the main ones, within your meta description and your title text. That way Google knows the main keywords you’re trying to focus on. Last, but not least, you then want to take that page and submit it within Google Search Console. You can add the URL, submit it right away, and that tells them, “Hey, crawl this page because it’s updated,” and update the search results with this new page.
Once you do that, within a week or two weeks at the latest, you should see an increase in search traffic. That’s all you have to do. If you did that with all your popular pages, you’ll get more search traffic using Google Search Console.
