by Genesis Rodriguez
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an efficient way to increase traffic to your website. As a public relations professional you don’t want to neglect your owned media, so understanding standard SEO practices can go a long way. Move toward improving your website by following these quick steps!
Step 1: Meta Tag Optimization
Maximize the impact your site has on Google by changing the title tag to help improve your search results. Make sure you provide descriptive tags to encourage more visitors to click through to your site. Content meta tags are a good way to gather information on what parts of your site get the most activity, therefore allowing you to strategically add more information for even better results.
Step 2: Content Optimization
Integrate content specific to target search phrases that will provide viewers with the greatest impact in a tactful manner. This is a good method to offer results that provide valid information while also improving your SEO.
Step 3: Inbound Link Building
Backlinks are a huge factor in your SEO ranking. Your website will rise in search results if users are consistently directed to it. Try to earn referrals from platforms such as partner pages, articles and white papers.
Step 4: Keyword Search
Identify the most popular search terms for your type of product or service and then integrate them into your content to generate leads. You can actually buy search words that can help increase traffic. Also remember to research which organic searches people are putting into Google, then match them to your site so that it increases traffic.
Step 5: Business Directory Submissions
Try to add your information and links to online Yellow Pages, niche websites, GPS and other business directories. Some platforms require you to pay to be on their site or while others allow you to create your account and host your contact information on their site for free.
Now you know the basics of how to improve your SEO, which will increase the visibility of your website or web page in search engine results. Take these fundamentals and let your brand enjoy the benefits!
