Technology Tips – Easy Way To Increase Your Website’s Ranking

If you have a website, here’s a great tool that allows you to grade your site, and offers tips on improving it, and it’s all FREE. You can check it out at www.websitegrader.com . Regardless of how your site grades ( out of 100 ), there are a few things that you can easily do that may help you boost your score, and hopefully drive more business your way.

Here is an example of what it looks like, using our personal real estate website, www.schumanteam.com . Overall, we scored pretty well, but could still refine a few things to make it even better.

 

 

While we suggest that you actually spend a few minutes by plugging your site into this grader, here are a few quick tips that we picked up and will share with you that may make a difference in your rankings.

1. Domain info – check your expiration date! If it expires in less than a year, search engines may see it as a lack of commitment to your domain or even view your site as spam.

2. Add links to your social media accounts.

3. Evaluate your readability level – define your ideal client and make sure you are writing to attract that person.  

4. Check your inbound links – More links to your site help increase your search engine rankings.

5. Add a blog.

If you have a blog,  make sure you at least put a link to it on your site. There’s also a handy tool to grade your blog as well  http://blog.grader.com/  . If you don’t have a blog, you may want to consider starting one. They are fairly inexpensive, easy to operate, and consumers love reading them.

Another great use for this grader is to be able to check out your main competitors to see how they are doing. You can plug any website into this tool, so everyone is fair game. Maybe your competition is doing something great that you aren’t doing.

Overall, there are some easy ways to help your website, so check out this great tool and hopefully your grade will increase.
