Here are 5 tips to improve your website rankings in Google to increase your traffic.
1.) Figure out what phrases you want to target. Keep in mind that the competition for phrases like ‘your city real estate’ is typically fierce.

2.) After you have made a list of these phrases. Use them in your title tag. The first three of four words in your title tag should be the phrases that you are trying to optimize for. Only target 1-3 phrases for each page.
3.) Write a good description tag that will compel searchers to click on your website. When you make a search in Google the description shows up under the title of the website. Make your description exciting and better than your competitors.
4.) Write good (and unique content) for each of your pages. Don’t steal the content from your competitors. Google does not like that. Write it yourself or have it written to make sure it is original.

In the end, strong, well written and organized pages generally rank higher in Google. Make a commitment to build good pages and garner links.
Give it time and your site will rank better.
