4 Hot SEO Tips you can Implement Right Now
Even though SEO is generally a long-term process, you can always do something to make your website a little more visible to the search engines. Here are some quick things you can do to improve the attractiveness of your website to Google:
- Keyword research – Search behavior always changes – when was the last time you checked your keywords to see which ones work and which ones don’t? Who knows, some long-tail terms (key phrases with 3 words or more) may also have appeared which may be easy to rank for.
- Build content – We do advise quality over quantity, but quantity helps too. The more you update your website with fresh content, the more frequently search engine spiders crawl it and add your pages to their index.
- Attract links – Are you aware of several websites related to your niche whose users would benefit from your content? Reach out to them, explain how your content would benefit their audience, and ask for a link.
- Build your social network – Consistent posting on your social networks is the easiest way to grow your following. Make sure to use calls-to-action to encourage your followers to share. Search engines give more love to websites with social media followers that share their content frequently.
