Links from high Domain Authority Are All You Need

While backlinks from high DA sites are a very important component of off-page SEO, if you want to rank on the first page of Google, you’re going to need to do a lot more. Top ranking pages on Google are those which the search engines considers relevant to the user’s search query, have the most traffic and are relatively authoritative.

Here’s what you’re going to need to do if your page is going to see daylight on Page 1. And that’s just to start you off:

  • Improve your page speed and have a quick loading time.
  • Get traction on social media and amplify your social signals.
  • Create content that’s relevant to the search intent.
  • Create an HTTPS secure website.
  • Go for a mobile-first approach.
  • Optimize your content.
  • Use AMPs.
  • Ensure technical SEO best practices.
  • Build consistent traffic.
