Being a business owner is hard work. Not only do you have to deal with the ins and outs of managing a successful business, but you also have to cope with discovering strategies for advertising and marketing your business. For business owners who grew up prior to the digital age, the world of online marketing and SEO (search engine optimization) may be difficult to navigate. Fortunately, our team at NUVEW is here to help you understand the best SEO strategies and tips for improving your website rankings and driving qualified leads. Here are five SEO tips to get you started – call us today for personalized services you can count on.
1. Publish Original Content
If your website doesn’t feature a blog, and if your blog doesn’t feature original (not to mention engaging and creative and relevant) content, then you’re missing out a huge opportunity to improve your website rankings.
2. Keep Things Current
Having a website and a blog is great, but just posting once and then forgetting about it for weeks or months at a time won’t do you any favors. Instead, you need to keep things current. This means posting to your website on a regular basis, and ensuring that any information on your website is relevant and up-to-date.
3. Know How to Use Links
Linking to relevant and authoritative sites is one of the best ways to get search engine recognition. What can be equally as effective, if not more so, is getting other authoritative sites to link back to your website (which means you need convincing, credible content).
4. Don’t Forget About Off-Website Activities
Your website is a huge part of your overall online marketing strategy, but it’s not everything. In fact, another activity that can be great for your SEO optimization is to create social media profiles (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are the top three) and to use them regularly. There is data to suggest that the use of social media has a positive effect on search engine ranking, and there is no doubt that at the very least, using social media increases your reach and your audience.
5. Invest in Some Technical SEO Support
All of the SEO tips above are fairly organic – they require being active and engaged, and then count on search engines to do the rest. But more technical SEO tips, such as a focus on your server and indexability, can have a significant impact on website traffic, too. Working with a pro is strongly recommend.
