Build Your Website for SEO

1. Quality Web Hosting

Choose a good web hosting company. It will help with page speed and server response time. I have used Bluehost for over a decade. My go-to choice for reliable, high-quality web hosting services is Bluehost. I highly recommend them.

2. Build Your Own Blog

If you aren’t hosting your own website and don’t have organic website traffic, it will be hard for you to get a good ranking in the search engines. Increased visibility and improved credibility are some of the benefits of investing in professional web hosting. It is easy to set up your domain, hosting, and templates with companies like Bluehost. You can start changing your website to reflect your brand once you’ve done that.

3. Focus on a Niche

I don’t recommend focusing on more than 1-2 niches. If you write about too many things, you will not be able to get noticed. In order to maximize your potential, try to focus on one or two main topics. You can rank for a bunch of topics around the same theme if you have a good theme. (Ex. personal finance). If you want your blog to be about all areas of your life, that is great, but your posts probably won’t rank as high as a blog focused on 1-2 topics. If you want to achieve the highest rankings, you need to decide what topics you want to focus on.

4. Choose a Keyword-Rich Domain

The domain name you choose will have a lot of words in it. If you want to increase visibility and boost your search engine ranking, you need a rich domain name. The shorter the domain, the better. The shorter the domain, the easier it is to brand and lead to higher direct traffic. domain has the greatest global ranking potential. A domain name that accurately reflects your business, brand or product is important. It is worth paying extra for and buying it off-market. A high-quality domain is a good investment.

5. Purchasing a Domain

Most domains at companies like Bluehost start at $12, but investing in website domains has gotten a lot more popular over the past few years. It’s always a good investment to own a high-quality domain that costs between $500 and $2,500. They can help you gain trust from your readers. If you put money into your brand you are more likely to stick with it.

6. WWW vs. non-WWW

I don’t use a website solely because I think it looks better in the browser bar. It’s easier for people to remember the URL when they are trying to access my website. I always recommend not using www. It’s important to note that certain technical aspects of using www may be beneficial for a website’s performance.

Don’t change it, just make sure you are consistent. Don’t be afraid to commit because sticking to a routine is the key to success. If you do, make sure you 301 re-direct your old links to the new ones. When visitors try to access old content, they will be met with a 404 page.

7. Which CMS is Best

There are a lot of content management systems that have the potential to rank higher in the search engines. The additional features and control that aCMS provides is likely to be the reason for this. They have some of the best software.

The open-source codebases are updated consistently to support higher-ranking blogs and better security. Losing your organic search rankings can take 6 months to recover from. Ensuring your website security and backup processes are up to date is a must.

9. Sub-domain vs. Sub-Directory

( There are two different URLs for “” and “”. (

Which one has the best potential? If you want to increase the search rankings of your core website, you should launch it on a sub-domain, and if you want to make it your own website, you should do it on a sub-directory. If you want the new area to have its own identity and branding, launching it on a sub-domain is the best option. Both have different potential based on your goals. It is important to consider both organic and paid strategies in order to maximize your ranking potential.

10. HTTP vs. HTTPs

HTTPS is a positive ranking factor. I see higher rankings for HTTPS sites. It’s essential for website owners to prioritize security because of this suggestion. You need to buy a certificate from your hosting provider. You will be able to enable secure connections on your website once you have obtained the certificate.

All of my websites are secure. If you change your website to HTTPS make sure you 301 re-direct all of the old websites to the new ones. Visitors who try to visit your old URLs will be automatically sent to the new ones, and search engines will understand the transition.

Here’s a great switching to HTTPS guide.

11. Use a Theme That is Set Up for SEO

The set-up of the theme is important. Better search engine visibility and higher rankings can be achieved with the help of an SEO-friendly theme. The code is technically sound, it has all of the elements for a strong foundation, and the core elements load fast. The site’s content has been changed to make it easier for search engines to find it. A lot of the themes that I see are not well-coded. This can hurt their search engine rankings. This is why it is a good idea to buy a premium theme and analyze it’s Most good themes will highlight the SEO components. It is possible to improve the visibility of your website on search engine results pages. Personal Blog, SimpleMag, and Jarida are some of my favorites.

Premium Themes

It is better to pay for a premium theme than it is to use a free one. They can be uploaded to almost any hosting company. They can be easily shared with friends and family once uploaded. It will be worth it if you use the $50-$60 theme. You will be able to grow your website and its traffic for years to come if you invest in a quality theme now. One of the best investments you can make is a premium theme.

Premium themes have more of a chance of getting updated frequently. You can always rely on the latest features to make sure your website performs well. Themeforest is the world’s largest theme website. There are thousands of themes to choose from, fromWordPress themes to website templates and more.

12. Quality User Experience

The better the experience, the higher your ranking potential. This will help to boost your blog’s ranking on Google and other search engines. A website that is easy to use and navigate will always rank better than a website that is poorly designed. A website with a modern and attractive design will attract more visitors and give them a better user experience.

There are cases for getting a premium theme. Themeforest has a lot of awesome user experience themes. You can easily modify the themes to fit your needs.

13. Mobile/Responsive

Google announced they will be adjusting their index to be “Mobile First,” which means that they will rank your blog based on the mobile experience (not the desktop one!). Half of all global searches are now done on mobile devices.

It’s important that your website is fast on mobile devices. Ensuring that your website is fast on mobile devices will help you reach a larger audience. High-quality responsive themes have a great built-in user experience. It is important to thoroughly test any theme before committing to use it. You should keep an eye on your mobile specific traffic and your mobile index in the search engine. You can use the new tool to evaluate your mobile experience. The tool will help you assess the performance of your mobile website and give you actionable insights to improve it.

14. Permalink Structure

Your is the best structure for your links. The date or categories should not be used in your URL. It’s a good idea to keep your URLs simple. A simpler structure is more likely to rank better. Content that is easy to read and understand is what search engines prefer. If you’ve already started your blog with a different structure, 301 might be a good idea to re-direct all of your old posts to a simpler structure.

Take Advantage of  Free SEO Tools and Plugins

15. Google Analytics

It is free to use. Even though they say they don’t, you should always have Google Analytics on your website because it’s likely that they use your data to rank your website. Most of the top-ranked websites use analytic tools. These websites are provided with data and insights by Google.

Here is a great Google Analytics set-up guide.

16. Google Search Console

Set up a Google Search Console Account. It is free and can help you track the impact of your efforts. It can be integrated with other tools. It will show you if your website is being crawled by the search engine. You can use this information to understand your website’s performance on search engine rankings.

19. Best SEO Plugin

If you use WordPress or Drupal use the free Yoast SEO plugin. It is by far the best. I would definitely recommend it. I don’t think the premium Yoast is worth it. The free version is the best for your website. The free version is all you need.

20. Best Security Plugin

If your website is hacked, most hackers will put malicious links on your website in a directory that will be hard to find. Keeping your website updated with the latest security patches and regularly scanning for malicious links is important. If you use WordPress then I strongly recommend using the free version of Wordfence. It is the best security tool out there and will help you if you get hacked. Here is a great Wordfence set-up guide.

21. Page Speed

Your website’s speed is a ranking factor. A better experience for the user/searchers is what Google wants to show. The user/searcher has a seamless experience if the user/searcher is prioritized for fast loading. I recommend working until the pages load in less than a second. Visitors are more likely to come back if they have a good experience on your website. The quicker the better. If we work together, we can get the job done quickly. Check your page speed using Googles free page speed insights tool.

22. Browser Caching Plugin

The best way to increase the speed of your website is to use a browser caching plug-in. Reducing the file sizes of multimedia is one of the steps you can take to improve your website’s performance. It pre-loads certain elements of your website so they don’t have to reload. The best free plugin is W3 Total Cache. Here is a great W3 Total Cache set-up guide.

23. Submit To Global Search Engines

There are more than one search engine in the world. They will crawl your website if you manually submit it to them. Make sure your website is visible on these search engines by regularly checking it. Here is a list of global search engines where you can submit your blog.

Perform Keyword and Competitor SEO Research

24. Keyword Research

Use Google Keyword planner (you have to set up an Adwords account, but can use the tool for free). It is important to write content that is relevant to the topic at hand. Search engine users can easily find the content they are looking for when they perform a search. If you want to find out how many people are searching for the topic you are writing about, use the search engine. This will help you find the right words that will help to grow your blog and increase its visibility online. Here is an awesome guide to keyword research.

25. Short Tail vs. Long Tail Keywords

It is easier to rank for longer tail phrases than shorter phrases. Long tail phrases are easier to target and rank for in search engine results. A lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the time, a lot of the It’s hard for the blog to get noticed and increase its visibility in search engine rankings because of this. It is easy to rank for a certain number of searches per month. It’s important to make sure your content strategy is well planned when targeting high volumes of searches.

As your website gets traction, you will have a better chance of ranking for the more competitive words. Producing high-quality content that is relevant to your target audience is what this means.

To learn more, read this article on why a long tail SEO keyword strategy is valuable.

26. Competitor Research

If you want to get more traffic, you need to analyze how the top-ranking blogs in your niche are getting traffic and copying their strategies. Track your results once you have done that and test out new strategies to see which ones work the best. You need to pay for a tool in order to conduct competitor research. It’s important to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors, so competitor research is an important tool for any business.

These are the best SEO tools on the market and once you have mastered the fundamentals you should check them out: SEMRush, Ahrefs, and Moz. I use a lot of these tools. These tools can be used to stay organized and productive.

Use Meta Data to Improve SEO

27. Main Navigation Menu:

It is important to have rich menu tabs that are representative of the main focus of your entire website. The menu tabs should be strategically placed so that readers can easily access the topics they are searching for. The main topics that you cover on your website should be linked to on your menu. You should always include an About and Contact page in your menu. The additional menu items should be linked to specific pages on the website. Don’t overload your menu. To appeal to different taste preferences, be sure to include a variety of dishes.

28. Secondary Navigation Menu

Once you have enough content, you should start using the secondary menu. If you have enough content in your secondary menu, organize it so that visitors can find it easily. It has been shown that websites with two navigation menus get higher rankings. This is due to the fact that a two-menu system allows the search engine to crawl pages more quickly and efficiently. If you have a secondary navigation menu, you should highlight your most valuable post content or posts on a secondary topic.

29. Footer

Most bloggers don’t use their full advantage because of your footer. Content and internal links can be placed on every page of your website. Ensuring that your website is easy to navigate will lead to more conversions. The description of your website should be 100 to 250 words. This description should give visitors a sense of what your website is about, and should be updated regularly to reflect any changes in content or purpose. The footer areas of your theme should be used. Take a look at how my footer is constructed.

30. RSS Feed

Google can crawl RSS feeds and own Feedburner, so it is strongly recommended that you set up a Feedburner gives you a feed for your website. Feedburner can be used to distribute your content and to keep your readers informed of new posts. While other services like Feedly are growing in popularity (it’s what I use), Readers can subscribe to their own RSS reader with Feedburner. Feedburner also allows for email subscriptions so readers can receive notifications about new posts directly in their inbox. Sign up for your own RSS Feeedburner account.

31. Links on Your Homepage

A lot of websites have too many links. It can be hard to find what you’re looking for when there are too many links. This can appear to be fake. It’s important to make sure your content is written with the reader in mind. You should have less than 75 links on your home page. So your menu, links to posts, links to categories, links to tags, links to advertisers, links to pages, and links to your social accounts. Customers or visitors can easily reach out to you if you have a link on your contact page. You can use Screaming Frog to crawl your blog to determine how many external links are on your homepage or use the Free HREF Google Chrome Link checker extension.

32. Display and Text Ads

If you have ads on your website, they can hurt you. It’s important to consider the impact of ads on your website, as they can significantly reduce user experience and have a negative effect on search engine rankings. There are a lot of websites that have too many displays and/or text ads. If you have too many ads on your post, it could be seen as a poor experience by the visitors. It’s important to make sure your ads are relevant to the content of your post and that they are properly spacing out so as not to overwhelm your readers. User experience and SEO are so intimately related, so take a fresh look at your website and think “Is this too many ads?” Ask your friends if it is too much. To make sure your budget is realistic, take into account how much you can afford. I recommend against in-line text ads. To avoid the annoyance associated with in-line text ads, I suggest using more subtle forms of advertising. It’s a good idea to have no more than 3 ads on your sidebar and no more than 2 ads in your posts. It’s important to keep an eye on the performance of your ads to make sure they don’t affect the user experience. If possible, try to avoid pop-up ads. To make sure your computer is protected against pop-up ads, take the extra step.

33. Popups

While it’s generally fine for SEO to include a pop-up to get newsletter subscribers, Google recently announced that they are going to start penalizing some websites with mobile pop-ups and generally dislike all mobile pop-ups. If you have a lot of pop-ups on your website, make them easy to click away from. The number of people who leave your website after just 1 page is called the bounce-rates. Understanding why people are leaving your website can help you make changes to improve the experience. You should probably remove your pop-up pages if your bounce rates increase. It is possible to collect customer data before removing pop-up pages. If you want to be safe, then stay away from pop-ups completely. Ensure that your external links are secure and up to date, as this will help to further protect your site from any malicious activity.

34. High-Quality Content:

Do you want a reader on your website? If you craft content that speaks to your target audience, you can draw in more readers. Why would you want to read it? Readers will want to learn more from your post because it gives valuable insight into a topic that many people are interested in. Answer the reader’s question the best you can. To encourage readers to take the next step, include a call-to-action. If you write a post about how to save $1,000, you need to give the reader as much information as possible. Readers could be provided with proven methods to save money, stories of those who have saved money successfully, and resources to help them reach their financial goals. You will get more traffic if you give more value and answers. Valuable content will help you build trust with your audience and increase traffic. People who answer questions better than others are rewarded by the search engine. The more relevant and helpful answers a person provides, the better chance they have of getting rewarded. This is how you find your target. Determine which ones are most likely to succeed by researching their performance.

35. URLs

You should keep your URLs short. There are a lot of URLs that are too long. Matt Cutts recommends using a maximum of 3-6 words in your URLs. “the”, “and” and “a” are words that don’t add value to the URL. They should be kept between 30-50 characters. This will make sure that you are engaging with your followers. Here’s an awesome guide on the correlation between URL lengths and rankings from Neil Patel.

36. Post and Page Titles

Your click-through rates and search rankings are affected by your post titles. Creating compelling post titles that effectively draw users to click on your content is essential for increasing your CTR and improving your search rankings. Make your post titles more interesting. Post titles should be between 30 and 65 characters. Readers can easily understand what the post is about by the title of the post. A lot of websites have post titles that are too long. It is hard for readers to identify the content of the post. Screaming Frog can help you analyze your post title lengths. It can give you insight into how to improve your post titles. Here’s a great video on crafting high ranking post titles.

37. Meta Descriptions

The impact of meta-descriptions on click through rates is not a ranking factor. There should be custom meta-descriptions for all of your posts. If you have custom meta descriptions, you can get more organic traffic to your website. If you use Yoast, you should put them below each post. It is possible to make sure that your content is appropriate for search engines. Don’t let the search engine pick your meta-description. Take the time to write a brief description of what your page has to offer, and make sure it accurately reflects the content on the page. A clear description of what the post is about is a must. There are some key strategies for improving the quality of your written content, such as using active voice and avoiding wordiness, as well as helpful tips on how to write with clarity, including breaking down complex ideas into smaller chunks and using simple language. Meta-descriptions have been shown to increase click-through rates. A great meta-description can help your website stand out from the competition. Check out this guide on writing effective meta descriptions.

38. Meta Keywords

While no longer a Other global search engines still take meta-keywords into account due to the high prevalence of spam. Meta-keywords are no longer considered a factor in determining search rankings. It is important that your metaKeywords align with your targetKeywords I recommend that you use the metaKeywords that you can turn on. MetaKeywords help search engines understand the content of your page so they can provide more relevant results.

39. Post Length

All other posts in the 500-1,200 word range should be written at least one 2,000+ post per month. If you produce more content, your audience will engage with it. Longer posts are more likely to rank better if they are high quality and relevant to a user. The post should give value to the reader. According to Backlinko the average Google first page result contains 1,890 words.

40. Post Frequency

If you can, try to write a minimum of one post per week. Quality content isn’t everything. The general theory is that you should write as many posts as you can, because there is a lot of debate on this topic. In order to maximize engagement with readers, experts recommend that the best approach is to write quality posts rather than focusing on quantity. Consistent posting and fresh content have been shown to have a positive impact on rankings.

41. Table of Contents

In long posts, a table of contents is always included. This will make it easier for readers to find what they’re looking for and improve the readability of your post. It is important to include a table of contents in order to help readers find the content that is most relevant to them. I personally have used the following Table of Contents WordPress plugin.

42. Images

Posts with pictures rank better than posts without pictures. It is possible to increase engagement and visibility by including a high-quality image in your post. Although they can’t crawl images, they can see where images are and like to see them in posts. It is possible to make your posts more visually appealing by having images in them. Depending on the length, it is recommended that you include at least 1-2 images per post. You can use visuals to draw the reader’s eye and make your post more engaging.

43. Image Sizes

Images that are too large and take too long to load are some of the biggest reasons for a slow website. Before uploading images to your website, it is important to make sure they are used for web use. Resize your images before uploading and make sure the file sizes are ideally under 1.5 MB.

44. Image Alt Tags

Even though they can’t crawl images, they can crawl alt tags. When uploading images to a website, it’s important to use alt tags that are relevant to what the image is about. In the image name and Alt Tag, always include your target phrase. This information should be included in any images uploaded. All images uploaded to the website should include the necessary information.

45. Image Descriptions

If you want your images to be ranked in Google images, you need to be clear about what the images are and this can be done by crawling image descriptions. It is important to include relevant images in your posts for better performance.

46. Video

Adding video to a post will increase its ranking potential. Video has the power to capture attention and increase engagement, helping to boost the ranking potential of a post even further. There are websites that are rewarding that have relevant content. Users are more likely to see websites that are up-to-date with the latest information. You don’t have to create your own video to be able to find a video to use on your topic. You can also use other video hosting sites to host your videos. It’s a missed opportunity to engage visitors and impact your page rankings if you don’t include video. Video can be a great way to engage readers and improve your ranking on the internet.

47. Video Sitemap

You should include a video sitemap if you are adding videos to your website from YouTube. This makes it easier for search engines to find your videos. If video is a key component of your blog and blog strategy then I recommend that you buy the premium Yoast Video Sitemap plugin.

48. Video Transcriptions

A great way to get your videos to rank is to write out full transcriptions of them as separate posts on your website. You can get the video transcribed for free when you upload it to YouTube. These services usually charge a fee, but you can use a transcription service to get the video transcribed. You can use the transcript from the video to make a post. If you add a link back to the original video in your post, readers will be able to watch it on their own. Check out this Lifehacker post on YouTube transcriptions.

Organize with Blog Categories and Tags

49. Categories

You should always build a list of high-quality categories. Ensure that each category is relevant to your audience. The topics you plan on writing about most often should be these. Researching topics related to each of these topics will give you a wealth of knowledge and information to draw from. It is a good practice to have at least 10 categories on your website. This will make it easy for readers to navigate your content. Not more than 30. It should not be accepted if the quantity is greater than 30. It will end up being confusing if you have too many categories. It can be hard for users to find what they are looking for if there are too many categories. (Category examples: Investing, Retirement, Student Loans)

50. List of Categories

If possible, add your categories to your sidebar and footer. You should link to your categories from the sidebar and footer for easy navigation. These are important internal links and you want to make sure they are easy to find.

51. Tags

You should use tags to tag very specific ideas, companies, or products that you write about. To make your content more discoverable, you should use tags that are popular in your niche. Don’t repeat your categories as tags on your posts! Keeping your tags organized and using them in a way that makes sense for both you and your readers is important. This is a good time to highlight something specific. If you take the time to think through what you can bring to the table that sets you apart from other applicants, you can highlight something more specific. (Tag examples: Motif Investing, Vanguard IRA, Domain Auctions)

52. Most Popular Tag Lists

It is a great option for the search engine. You can use this feature on your website to improve your content for search engines. If you can show your top 20 tags in your footer and sidebar, it will make it easier for search engines to find your content. This can help drive more organic traffic to your website.


53. H1 Tags

Every post should have a unique H1. It’s important that each post has a title that stands out from the rest. This shows that this is the most important topic on the page. Use it wisely. You don’t want more than one H1 on a page. It is important that the H1 tag is used correctly on the page. There are themes that have H1s that are incorrect as the page title. One of the most important elements of a user experience is the H1s. Make sure your H1 is in your post by checking your code. Web Developer Tools can be used to verify yourHTML structure. Someone should fix it if not. If you don’t have the skills to do it, consider outsourcing it to a professional who can make sure it’s done correctly.

54. H2 Tags

You can have more than one H2 tag, but every post should have at least one. Posts should be broken up into smaller sections with H3 or H4 tags. The second topics in your post are important.

55. H3, H4, H5 Tags

Even though H1 and H2 are not as important as the other tags, I recommend you use them whenever you can. They make it easier to read your posts. It is possible to improve the visibility of your posts on social media with the use of hashtags.

Build Internal, External, and Affiliate Links

56. Internal Links

All of your posts should have at least a few links. External links should be included to enhance the credibility of your post. Don’t use them too much and make them natural. In order to support the overall message of your content, it is advisable to include relevant keywords where appropriate. Except on your about page, where it’s natural to link through to a bunch of your posts. The words you hyperlink should be used in the anchor text. This will increase the visibility of your website in search engine results. Readers are more likely to engage with your website if your posts are linked. Readers are encouraged to explore more of your content by including internal links in your posts. Here’s some more detailed advice on internal link strategies and best practices. You can also use SEMRush to analyze your internal links for free.

57. External Links

You should link to other websites and posts about your topic if you want to be relevant. Links should be placed in anchor text that accurately describes the page or content you are linking to, so readers can easily understand the connection between the two pieces of content. Link to your competitors and they will associate you with them and their topics on the internet. This can help improve your search engine rankings, as well as the sites you link to. It is a good practice to include between 1 and 4 links per post. Links that are relevant can help readers find more information on the topic.

If you want to support your post and topic, you should use as many external links as possible. External links give the reader more information while also giving credit to the original source. It is possible for other websites to see when you link to them.

Find out more about how external links approve your ranking authority.

58. Sidebar Links

There are links in your sidebar. I recommend no more than 30 external and internal links. Readers are not interested in the main content of your website if there are too many links. This can look like it’s fake on some websites. This can result in your blog being removed from the search engine results. Link to the most relevant content on the website. Provide a navigation system that makes it easy for visitors to find what they are looking for. You should keep an eye on what visitors click on. You can gain valuable insights into how visitors interact with your website with this feature.

59. Affiliate Links

A lot of people, including me, use affiliate links. A great way to make money is by using affiliate links. Unless you have too many on a page or they are un-natural, you can still use affiliate links. If you use affiliate links on your site, make sure they are placed naturally and not overwhelming the content. A few weeks ago, I analyzed a blog that had a lot of affiliate links in their sidebar. I was able to determine if the readers were going to click on the affiliate links or not. That will be seen as offensive by the internet search engine. If you use affiliate links in your content, they shouldn’t have a negative impact on your search engine ranking.

60. Affiliate Link Cloaking

Link cloaking is fine. It’s helpful to prevent malicious bots from hijacking your links. A lot of affiliates cloak their links, which technically creates a 301 will re-direct you to your affiliate link. It allows you to track the performance of your link more accurately and ensures that you have full control over the URL. It’s a good practice to say that your link has permanently moved to another link. It helps search engine crawlers discover the new URL more quickly and efficiently. If you don’t follow all of your affiliate links, they won’t get listed on your website. This will help protect your website’s rankings and make sure that you don’t get punished by search engines for having too many links in one place. I use the free Easy Affiliate Links plugin to manage my affiliate links and it works well.

61. Backlink Building

authority is passed through the links to your website. This authority is used by the search engine to rank websites. Some people try to game the system. Readers may not get an accurate picture of the product or service being reviewed if dishonest practices are involved. Don’t buy from anyone. If you do that, search engines will penalize you, compromising your website’s visibility. I’ve seen a lot of people that have purchased services from websites like Fiverr. It’s important to know that low quality backlink from these sources can negatively impact your website’s ranking in search engines. In 99% of the cases, it doesn’t work and when it does, it ends up getting punished for link building from low-quality websites. It is advisable to stay away from link building tactics. If your organic rankings don’t recover, it will take a long time to get your website back to where it was. It is important to take preventative measures in order to avoid having your website penalize by Google, as it can have long-term negative consequences. Buying links isn’t worth the risk. Search engine penalties can severely damage your online presence. I don’t recommend that you rent links from some services. It’s best to avoid renting links because of the consequences. Build links naturally. If you are creating high-quality high- value content and reaching out to other Bloggers, your backlink will grow naturally. Monitoring and measuring your backlink efforts will ensure that you are getting the most out of them. You can’t game the algorithm. It was designed to reward websites that offer the best user experience.


Social Media and Other SEO Tips

62. Social Sharing Plugins

A lot of social sharing plugins are too slow for your website and will cause a lot of errors. That’s why it’s important to choose a lightweight plug-in that won’t slow down your website or cause errors. I recommend that you use the Google page speed tool and if your website gets below an 80/100 then you should take a hard look at your social sharing plugins. The social sharing plugin I use and recommend (and is the fastest I have tested) is Easy Social Share Buttons. It is worth paying for a high-quality social plug-in. They’ll save you time and energy that would be spent creating something from scratch, and they’ll also help to create a better user experience that will have visitors coming back for more.

63. Google Plus Integration

It is popular in India, but very few people use it. Even though it’s low usage, it’s still a valuable asset for companies looking to increase their visibility online. Sharing a link on Google+ creates a backlink from Google to the post and I personally find that my posts get ranked better in the search engines when I share them on the social network. It’s more likely to be seen by potential viewers if a post is shared on Google+. Sign up for a free business account for your website and start sharing. Link your business account to other social media profiles to maximize the reach of your content.

64. Contact Page:

Most Bloggers don’t take advantage of when they should when it comes to the content on their contact page. It is always best to have an address on your contact page, even if it’s a P.O. There is a box at your local post office. When you set up the box, you can check the tracking number to make sure you keep track of your packages. It’s even better if you include a phone number. That will make it easier for people to contact you. There is a physical location behind your website. This is done to make sure that the content you are providing is reliable. If you have a physical address take the next step and embed a There is a map on your contact page. Visitors to your website can easily find you and get directions to your business. Your local search rankings will be helped by this. It can help to boost your organic search visibility.

65. Share Every Post on Twitter

The links within the Tweets are crawls by the search engine. This relationship makes it easy for people to find the content they are looking for on the internet. Studies show how links that get more use end up ranking higher. This means that it is possible to increase visibility and search engine rankings with the help of social media. Encourage others to share your posts as well by sharing every post you have on social media. Increasing the visibility of your posts and growing your online presence can be done with the help of hashtags.
