How to improve SEO for a website
Here are ten things you could do to save money and build SEO for your website.
The alternative is to get someone to do it for you and pay out big money.
Let’s start at the top and with number One on the list.
Writing posts is important for SEO
The single most important thing you can do is regularly post appropriate content to your site.
What is regular you will ask and the best answer is every day. Anything less than that is ok but
more is really better.
A post can be anywhere from just 300 words through to 3000 words so the choice is yours.
I have written the Long form and short form and both work depending on the content.
The more you post the more people see you.
Two great ideas to write with.
I use Grammarly for all my writing. This is a free download that checks your spelling and grammar
and encourages better writing. Google hates bad grammar as much as your readers.
The other one is coschedule for free headlines. Just log in and scroll to the bottom for the free stuff.
It will make you reconsider your headlines and get really good open rates.
- Get better SEO by Using Yoast SEO
If you are a WordPress client a great free Plugin is Yoast SEO. This provides a green light
on both your writing and SEO. Plus it tells you what you have done wrong and how to fix it
this is a great cheat sheet approach to SEO
Check your headlines for # tag headings for better SEO
Your headlines should flow down from the top. That is you use the H1# as your main one then go down from there in the post. Don’t have them all over the place, other than looking messy Google does not like it.
I also make my heading read like Keywords so that it adds to the search variety.
Review your content for better SEO.
It is undisputed that Content is King in all web pages and posts. If you write rubbish you get rubbish so
think about how you can improve your writing.
Write for the short attention span reader.
not many paragraphs under a heading
lots of headings
include product appropriate pictures with a heading
Post your writing to Google
You need to post to Google which requires a Google account with appropriate
header coding to be placed on your website
You should also use Google Plus to send your posts to.
Post to Bing and Yahoo for greater acceptance
Like with Google open a Bing account and obtain the linking code to embed in your post.
You are lucky here because this flows to Yahoo so no need to do it twice
Connect from Social Media
Every post should also be sent to Facebook and Instagram and if your market is suitable
LinkedIn. Facebook still has a big pull and should also direct readers to your website and post
Use paid ads
This can be costly and return very little so do it with the best intentions and knowledge. Do not throw money
into the wind and Hope. It does not work.
Analyze your traffic.
You should have Google analytics on your site so you can really see what is happening.
This is free and drives all your decisions going forward on how well the site is going.
