The search engine Google uses a large amount of methods to figure out which pages are displayed first (highest) in the results. Their ways are secret, but there are a few things you can do to increase your position in the rankings. The term for this is Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which Rating System provides for you on our paid plan.
Unfortunately, we cannot increase traffic using back-links, that’s not how Rating System works. The way Google notices and advances websites through their rankings and page numbers is through traffic, ‘tags’ and ‘keywords’, as well as website presentation. For example, let’s say you are trying to offer and sell a product to a customer, a brand new Infiniti M37. When the website is first created, Google won’t be noticing your website due to the lack of traffic and website presentation. How can we change that?
Simple. Once you’ve finished customizing your page and products are ready to sell, by using a Rate/Review box, it gives your product a chance to be; discussed, rated, reviewed and possibly even shared. This includes the ‘tags’ and ‘keywords’ mentioned above. As people rate and review and mention ‘Infiniti’ or ‘M37’, Google recognizes this. It notices that your recent created or updated website has been seeing; more traffic, more product discussions, possibly even more product purchases. Then, Google sees that the website is active, it receives good traffic, its products are reviewed and bought, and website has great presentation, why not bump them up to the first page on search results?
SEO is one of the many features that Rating-System provides. Stay tuned for next blog as we talk about ‘Follow Up Marketing E-mails.
