First ingredient for fantastic SEO tips: Keywords
Let’s start off with the first thing you need to put in your digital marketing cocktail shaker: keywords. They’re arguably the most important thing to help you have good SEO on your site to encourage more traffic through to your site. Do your keyword research, distribute them equally in your text, ensure you’re not keyword stuffing, and use them in your meta description. Ah, that brings me onto the importance of meta descriptions for SEO tips below…
So, your meta description is the text that shows on the SERP when users see your page. You want your meta description to catch the reader’s attention and make them want to read more to improve your CTR. Additionally, you want to make sure that they sum up the page well so that you keep a good bounce rate. So, you need to make it interesting but reflect what the page is really about, all in between 120-160 characters. This one is imperative: use keywords in your meta description.
If you have any images on your site or in your content, then it’s important to add alt text and use keywords within it. Fundamentally, that’s for accessibility and you want to describe an image to your audience who don’t have the ability to see it. That’s why it’s the most important, but it will also help with SEO. So, ensure that all your text has alt text and that it includes keywords.
In any content, make sure that you have internal and external links. Basically, external links will improve chances of backlinks and then internal content will improve your CTR and make users stay on your website. Within your text, include links that are relevant and will improve the user’s journey. This is key for good SEO.
These things are extremely important for SEO: H1, H2, and H3. The increased readability will mean that your audience is more likely to stay on your website and continue reading which results in good SEO. Make sure that your text is split up into sections and there’s no more than 300 words in each section. This will make it a lot easier to read. Oh, and use keywords in your headers, too!
