No you cannot pay Google to rank your website higher.

Google does not accept any payment for ranking websites and they will not rank your website higher for payment.

If they did then it would mean that they would have to rank a lot of websites higher which would mean they would likely push other good websites and content down in the rankings.

The only way you can pay Google to rank your website higher though is to create great and stellar content with long detailed posts and then Google will reward you by ranking the website high and send you free website traffic.

Google Analytics can help you improve your SEO as it provides you with valuable data that your business can use to monitor (and improve) SEO performance) from keywords to your website's top referrals and so much more.

A good SEO ranking score is between 31 to 40.

However an SEO ranking score of 70 to 80 is even better.

When you get at least a number 2 or number 3 position in ranking on Google Search first page then you're doing good.

However you should aim to write quality content that hopefully gets to number 1 position on Google Search as number 1 top ranking position of your page gets more website traffic.

What is a good SEO score?

The score that you should be aiming for is anywhere from 31 - 40.

Improving your domain authority score from 30 to 40 is way easier than improving it from 70 to 80.

The important thing that you need to remember about domain authority is that it's a metric that is alive.

The reason content is called King of SEO and the reason why content IS King of SEO is because well written content engages the reader, increases search engine rankings and traffic, and increases the likelihood of quality links from other sites.

A variety of factors influence the ranking.

The weighting is constantly analyzed by search engines for different factors.

However, experts agree that the content of a website is one of the most important criteria for ranking in search engines.

Therefore, “content is king” in the SEO industry.

To get top ranks in SEO you need to create and write stellar and great content.

Write long detailed posts and give as much information as you can to improve your blog posts so they are very helpful to people searching for what your website provides information on.

Use a good quality web host and make sure your website is as fast as possible.

Make sure your website is using SSL and is also mobile friendly.

Google is ranking sites that work in mobile better than non mobile sites now as a lot of people are viewing websites and searching Google Search on their mobile devices.

If your website is not mobile friendly then you not only will lose search engine rankings but also lose out on visitors due to the mobile use.

Some ways you can see where your website ranks on Google are semrush and seranking.com

You can also search keywords that you should be found on Google for and see if you're ranking for those keywords.

You can also use Google Search Console to check your websites ranking on Google Search.

Sign in to Google Search Console.
Click on the name of your website (or click 'Add Site' if you haven't already done so).
Click on 'Performance' (in the left-hand sidebar)'.

To improve your website ranking in Google and other search engines make sure your website loads fast, has good content, good titles in the blog post title and update your content regularly and post as much new content as you can.

However you must write quality content.

Other tips to improve website ranking include.

Improve your website's user experience.
Write great content optimized for SEO.
Get more back links.
Improve your page speed.
Fix broken links.
Optimize your images.
Use H1 and H2 header tags.
Optimize for local search.

To rank your websites content first on Google you need to create awesome content on your website.

You need to write good quality, long and detailed content that is better than the other websites content on the web.

Also if your website is new then it can take some time to get Google to trust your website and to climb in the ranks.

Older websites and older domain names typically rank better in Google Search than newer websites and newer domains.

However during the time your website is new you should continue writing as much content as you can.

The more quality content you have on your website the more links to your website can be indexed in Google from the content.

This in turn creates more pages for Google Search to index and then leads to more website traffic.

Organic Search Traffic from Google and Bing are the best kinds of traffic.

It can sometimes take a few years or 5 years to start seeing your website climb in the ranks.

However never quit writing content as Google Search Loves fresh and quality content.

The more often your website is updated the more Google Search Crawlers will crawl your website and index new pages.

Also just note you have to be patient when ranking in Google.

In some cases it can take 6 months to a year for one of your blog posts to rank in Google Search.

Although it may be indexed in Google Search it can take awhile to climb to the top of the page.

I've had some blog posts that I've written take 6 months and some a year to climb to the top of the Google Search.

So you have to be patient as ranking for keywords in Google Search can take time.

However after all that work your blog posts and content can rank for years and years and bring in income from your website even while you sleep.
