10 SEO Free Tips For Your Online Strategy
1) Make sure you have Google Analytics added to your website, this will ensure that you can understand your users, without some sort of tracking how will you know who your customers are and where they come from?
2) Implement a sitemap, make sure it is set up correctly, perhaps re-submit it to google webmaster tools to ensure that the main pages on your site are indexed correctly.
3) Check your robots txt file or htaccess, these files instruct the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and Youtube that your site is ok to index and can provide specific hierarchy structures to add priority to key pages.
4) Ensure that your pages are focused on fewer terms, 1 main term with 4-5 long-tail variations to support this.
5) Optimise your linking structure, makes sure that you are not reducing the link juice on certain pages by providing too many or too few links to them. It is better to link back to key pages through content on your homepage.
6) Compress your images, heavy sites provide a reduced user experience, especially important to mobile users now, which make up some 60% of all users. Make sure your site loads quickly.
7) Adapt your site for responsive mobile and tablet use. Google uses mobile-first as a metric to measure websites so make sure yours is mobile-first.
8) Ensure that your page title and H1 contain your target keyword or phrase. This will help both Google and the user to understand the purpose of the page and its relevance to them.
9) Keep your main keyword focus towards the top of the page content. But keep it natural, stuff a page with key terms that are unnatural is considered black-hat and subject to penalisation.
10) Track your progress weekly and adjust, test, adjust and repeat. This is the long game, not a short one. It is important that you persist. SEO can take 2-3 months to show results, depending on the industry it may take even more.
