Achieving First Page Positioning on Google for Target Keywords

page 1 on GoogleWebPages achieve top page positioning on Google by a combination of on-page (visible and coding content) and off-page (incoming links) factors.

We calculate the amount of optimisation required to achieve top page positioning on Google for your targeted keywords according to keyword difficulty by average Total Page Authority of the pages on the top Google results page for the keyword. Our fees are per targeted keyword. We would emphasise that nobody who truly understands SEO would guarantee top page positioning on Google (Steimie, 2014) and so our fees for this aspect of our work is on a no-win no fee basis.There is also an opt-in maintenance fee at 20 % per month – provided top page positioning on Google is maintained.

Total Page Authority and Link Power Requirements

We use our own program KeywordSEOPro to determine keyword difficulty – the difficulty of achieving top page positioning on Google for keywords based on WebPage and Website (Domain)  Authority. With this information and knowledge of the combined authorities of the planned competing pages we can calculate the amount of link power required to achieve top page positioning for your website to reach the top page of Google for your chosen keywords. TPR is the keyword difficulty – Total Page Authority – Keyword Difficulty.

Consider the KeywordSEOPro analysis for web designer keywords.

Web designers – Keyword Difficulty

The webpage in position 1 for web design is a Wikipedia page. It has a Page Authority of 88 and Domain Authority of 100 as a result of millions of incoming links – Total Page Authority 188. This is why we typically see Wikipedia pages at the top for short-tail keywords. The average TPA for this keyword for the pages on the top Google results page for this keyword is 108.

Small business websites rarely achieve Total Page Authority of 75 which severely limits the keywords where top page positioning on Google is achievable. We regard an average TPA >85 for a keyword as out of reach on organic search and the only means to be on the top page of Google would required PPC – Adwords.

Building on Success

Some clients have achieved a degree of SEO success for some keywords. In these circumstances, we may reduce the fees for related keywords: This will be indicated in our quotation.

On Page Optimisation

Top page positioning on Google for keywords is only possible with inclusion of the keywords or synonyms a couple of times in the body text and in the key coding places such as the Page Title and header tags. We would provide the recommendations for clients who wish us to proceed with SEO.

For the majority of small business websites top page positionng on Google depends on the presence of the words in the keyword phrases to be in the HomePage Page title and once or twice in the Home page body text. It also depends on link power acquisition.
