Over the years, Google's position on what makes a good website really hasn't changed, however, the algorithms have. Even if you think your website with the best content in the world deserves to be on the top, there may be some things you're doing wrong on the SEO end.
If you're on a strict budget and want to increase your visibility on Google, here are a handful of free SEO tools you should consider downloading:
The minute you start typing in a keyword, Google will start to "autosuggest" particular keywords. With Ubersuggest, it will take a broad keyword and develop hundreds of long-tail phrases based on Google's suggestions. This is a great way to get hundreds of keyword ideas. What you do with this data is entirely up to you.

On September 23, 2013, the Internet was made privy to Google's master plan to encrypt 100% of organic search activity. Marketers were outraged, as Google's own Matt Cutts had formerly stated that keyword encryption would impact less than 10% of searches overall.
SSL Encryption and Google: A Brief History
Google initially launched an encrypted search option back in May 2010. Since October 2011, the search engine has been automatically redirecting users to its encrypted URL as long as they were signed in to Google. It was around this time that the "(not provided)" element in Google Analytics and other web metrics programs began to appear.
Since then, encryption has been adopted through various other browsers including the Chrome omnibox as well as Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari iOS6, steadily increasing the total percentage of obscured keyword data. Very soon, this encryption will apply across the board.
Webmasters and SEOs have been able to...
Google officially announced the launch of its new algorithm, Hummingbird, at a media event in Silicon Valley on September 26, 2013 in celebration of the search engine giant's 15th anniversary. In fact, Google states that the algorithm was actually released quietly and gradually over the past month.
This new upgrade marks the biggest change to the Google algorithm since the Caffeine rollout announced in June 2010, which primarily amended Google’s indexing system to provide searchers with fresher results. Hummingbird affects 90% of global search results, and will impact many parameters contributing to organic rankings. Google has yet remained reticent about the technical details of this new beast, but here's what we do know.
What Does Hummingbird Mean for Google?
So what's the big fuss? After all, search algorithms are updated several hundred times a year, and are sometimes even given names, such as the infamous...
It’s apparent Google plays by their own set of rules as they are frequently found to be violating their own requirements and failing to fill in loopholes. Google claims they’ve eliminated many loathsome SEO techniques, yet honest webmasters are still feeling the sting of each new update. Black hat tactics are still prevailing, despite Google’s “manual efforts” to clean up low quality websites.
In our case, we are still ranking significantly lower than our competitors. Weeks after Penguin 2.0, buybulkvisitor.com continues to rank above our site; although, their ranking has dropped slightly from our previous report. But, take a look at their link report. Still ranking with Sape links.
Our battle to rank above spammy sites doesn’t end there. With a diversity of keywords, we consistently rank below sites that should have been penalized and eliminated. Take “buy visitors” for example. Once again, we are beat by poor competition,...
Negative SEO was thought of as a very rare thing in the past, and there was doubt about its effectiveness. However, since Penguin and its changes hit the Web there has been a great deal of talk about negative SEO. Now it seems everyone has been hit by it, or at least everyone who has experienced the slightest drop in traffic. This is the usual hysteria settling in whenever a change occurs and, there is little doubt that almost all of these complaints are unfounded. However, I do wonder if attacking other websites might become a common tactic in the future. One group of SEO experts have recently done something to help answer that question.
This group made use of one of their own websites that was highly ranked and typical of a small business site. They posted thousands of paid links around the Web with all of them pointing to the site, then tracked the SERP position of the website to see what happened.
