Hi guys, It’s a happier day for me. I got good news(not that😁) from Google Search Console, a mail about one of my posts. Today I will tell you how one of my posts goes viral and is added to a featured snippet by the google search engine. I was really amazed when I got this news. I want to share it with you.
The secrets through which I ranked my post to No. 01. If you are a beginner at blogging, I really suggest you know this trick. This trick will be helpful for you.
There are many things you need to know whenever you type a post like: the purpose of post, length, keywords volume, search volume, category, description,………….etc.
These are very necessary things you should include and think about while writing. But today I am not intended to tell you these boring theories of blogging. I will give you cheat codes that I got from my whole experience of blogging. Today I will answer these most typed queries such as: How can I add my post to the featured snippet? How do I rank up my site in just a few months? So let’s get started……………
Time is everything
It is very simple to state this sentence but difficult to implement. If you are a blogger or e-content writer then you may notice that it is impossible to get thousands of hits/views by just writing few posts. Sometimes a post goes viral by itself, on the other hand, some posts take a long time to acquire an audience and become viral. My post that gone viral and added to the featured snippet was six months old.
While you are writing a post you should not be a misunderstanding that this post will get thousands or millions of views after a day from the date of publishing. What I am doing is just want you to understand this universal fact of life. I say ” Play until you won”. I will tell you the only thing that you need to wait until your post becomes viral. Google Search Engine is built in such a way that it takes time to understand the quality, reliability, and efficiency of a web page to know whether this page is suitable for a particular query. So you should give time to your post. It can be a few months or years. As I got rank my post in six months.
Making trend is better then following trend
This works only for beginners. Because beginners often do this mistake. They write content that is already trending. In this way, they compete with the older websites which have millions of followers and are the jewels of the google news page. I got this experience from the post that I am talking about. When I was typing that post, I don’t search the keywords of that post even for a single time. Always try to make a trend not to follow it. This time you need to make your website visible to search engines not to show your website in the crowd of millions. Even you try to write beautiful content but your rank will be below 200 ranks and no one will scroll down to see your particular page. For now, you need not follow the trend. Write something catchy and attractive.
Share your personal experience
The featured snippet always contains relevant answers to different questions/queries written with the personal experience of the author.
Sharing personal experience in the post make the content soulful. Think like a reader, a reader is not so much interested in What is the niche of your website but wants to know what you feel about that topic you are writing about.
I have added all the experiences in that post. It is the fact that; Everyone experienced something in his/her profession, so he/she need to get other’s experience to determine his/her life or work. So tell your experience to your audience. May some likes your ideology a make your content precious for you.
That group of people will rank up your post. So know what your audience wants. You fulfill their desire and they automatically fulfill your desire.
Make something attractive In Your Blog
It is a well-known psychological fact that beautiful/handsome people get jobs faster than ugly. So you need to make your website so attractive. Assume someone visits your website for the first time and he/she will get the interface of only writings and links. He/she will never visit again to your website.
This will create a negative impact on your site. Try to visit your own website as a viewer. Fix what problems occur when someone will visit your website. Change the color of the theme, text fonts, text size, styling, etc. Guess which theme is more attractive. These are all the things that you can customize within your blog to retain the audience on your post. If regular audience retention increases then your web page rank will boost very fast. So to make it a regularly featured snippet you need to make your website more attractive.
Write Sky-crapper Content
The most essential thing in blog writing is your content, and there are different ways to make content more attractive and catchy. A lot of people do experiments to make their content more tremendous and attractive.
But I prefer to write sky-crapper content. You may wonder to know about sky-crapper content because it is the only thing for beginners that boost your website visibility to the search engine. Need not think more if you want to know how to write a sky-crapper content just do these simple steps:
- Open browser a type your keyword or query.
- Check out the first result page.
- Yaah! That’s it. Let me explain you more.
A sky-crapper content can be created if you add up 5-10 times better content than what you just found. If this page is ranking then we are sure that a lot of people would link to it.
I know it is very difficult to compete with the top-ranking page, but there is the only option for you. Now the next step you need to do is; Take the topic and idea from this page and do more with it. Include everything which is not being mentioned. Think if this is no.1 ranked and you do 5-10 times better than this, your page will automatically be added to the featured post.
