My Checklist to Rank Health and Wellness Niche Sites

Follow these 5 simple steps and you’ll see a great improvement in your rankings and you’ll see that your sites started showing in search results:

1. Create an About Us Page

I’ve seen that most of the health sites which are affected by the update don’t have an about us page. If you are also lacking this page then I highly recommend that you create one.

On the other hand, if you already have it then make it interesting by adding your expertise. You don’t need to be a doctor or any kind of professional to run a health blog.

Simply write your expertise and your experience in this field and what you have achieved in 200-500 words.

If some authority sites are linking to you then mention it too and this will automatically enhance your expertise and trust.

Not only this, other pages like Contact Us, Privacy Policy, Disclaimer etc are also very important and you have to create them too.

2. Add Bio in Each Post

Like about us page your Bio section under each post is also very important.

Add 2-3 sentences and tell about your expertise and knowledge. Write a convincing Bio so users can trust your content. I’m not asking you to tell a lie.

If people trust your content then Google will most probably trust it too.

If possible add links to your social media profiles too in the Bio section.

3. Add Links to Authority Sites (Cite the Sources)

If you don’t back up your claims or studies you have mentioned in the article by linking to authority sites then you simply can’t rank your site.

Don’t be afraid of linking to others (high authority sources), this won’t hurt your SEO rather it will increase the trust of your site in the eyes of Google.

4. Provide Correct Information

Don’t write articles just for the sake of publishing content if you can’t provide any value to the users.

In the health niche, you have to be very specific and only right correct information and don’t forget to back it up by linking to authority sites.

Make sure the tips or anything which you are writing is 100% correct otherwise forget the rankings.

If you are accepting guest posts, then I highly recommend that you should stop accepting them unless you are publishing them under your own name and after reviewing them properly.

5. Build Offline Authority

You have to build offline authority as well to rank your health site well on Google.

The best and easiest way of doing it is, write a few guest posts on authority blogs with your name (in Bio or anywhere in the article). Doing so will increase the trust of you as an author and also of your blog and help you a lot in rankings.

HARO is the best platform to increase your offline authority. The big authority sites need sources for their claims and you can be a good source if you have knowledge in that particular field.

If they accept you, they will cite you with your name and a link back to your site.

The Bottom Line

Here I’ve mentioned tips only for the small sites with a single author and not for those who have multiple authors. If you follow these tips you’ll see that your site has started ranking on Google.

A Quick Tip: Delete all the content from your site which you have just published for the sake of publishing content. This will help too in bringing you back on the track.

I’m sure you have enjoyed reading it and learned something new. Don’t forget to share it…
