Search Engines don’t like the links or visitors which are purchased. Often many users buy visitors from some websites. They should be warned that this can let their ranking down.

3. Don’t Forget To Optimize For Social Media Channels:

4. Domain Names:
While purchasing domain, always be careful and try to buy the just that domain which contain the basic keyword which you will have to use in SEO. Meanwhile always buy the short domains and avoid buying the lengthy domains. When you configure domain with hosting, keep it in mind that after configuration when opening the URL, it always opens with www extension. Some users don’t care about it and when anyone open their domain with www extension, sometimes it does not open.
5. Optimizing with Different Types of Results:
Always remember that a video ranks fast than the text so you can create a rich media video and upload it on YouTube and other video sharing websites. It will give you much more visitors. Meanwhile if your website has the non-text content then optimize that content also. For example if there is a PDF file or some image or anything else then you should optimize it also as well as text.
6. Focus on Meta Data:
Now days, meta keywords are often ignored by the search engines but if you are using them then use them in their specific format so that they can give you better optimization. Meanwhile your Meta description should be not exceeded by 150 words. It should be unique. If it is duplicate then you it will never give an even a little benefit in SEO. The Title which you are using should be maximum 6 to 8 characters.
Considering all of the above points, I hope that you can get started with SEO and can optimize the page/data in better way to get a better position.
