SEO Tips to Boost Traffic and Engagement (5 Must Knows)

Updated: Apr 10

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is what connects those searching for your service, or product, with your website.

Here are 5 basic must-knows:

  1. Check your website title, individual page titles, and descriptions. This is what people see first when they search for you online and is auto-populated when you share links.

  2. H1 and H2 Headings: To optimize SEO you should have relevant headers that include your keywords or phrases. These are settings that you place on the text of each page; H1 indicates the main heading or title and H2 are the sub-headers, or the next most important point for your page.

  3. Create a seamless user experience by designing your website around a solid strategic sitemap. An accurate and well-defined sitemap will help the algorithms behind rankings recognize your site as a valuable tool for those searching for your product or service.

  4. Update the images throughout your website to include "Alt Text". This is an accessibility tool and helps search engines recognize imagery related to online searches.

  5. Start to work on link building throughout your website. You'll want to use this tool to link both internally within your site - say from your services page to a landing page about a core offer, as well as externally - an example would be to link to a source of authority in your industry or visa versa. When you build links you help your ranking AND you increase the opportunity for a prospect to stay on your website if you use great content and link building.

If you're ready to start optimizing your website for SEO, I've put together the core pieces - including step-by-step instructions, here.

What I instill in all those I meet and talk about SEO is that your content matters!

Content IS SEO.

Setting up a great site with all the right technical SEO set, but that is rarely to never updated is a disservice.

Keep your website up-to-date by checking your page content - make sure it is always congruent with what you truly provide, add new testimonials, add new blogs that you can reference on your own pillar pages, or put content to work with inbound linking.

If you haven't made new content in a while, I suggest you start with an idea book to track your ongoing growth and plans and start to brainstorm.

As you add to your website, remember to go back to the basics of SEO on each additional piece to keep your website optimized.
