SEO Tips that Get Results
Tip 1: Follow Brian
Dean from Backlinko.com
I just found his website a couple days ago and I am trying
out some of his tips from a couple of his blogs. You can find these tips at On-Page SEO:
Anatomy of a Perfectly Optimized Page.
Tip 2: Use Short URL’s
I have never done this, as I have always used the url of the
title from my blog. Example; Beginner-Kettlebell-Workout-for-all-Women-to-Perform-at-Home. His comment was the
search engines don’t like long url’s and the first couple words hold
the most weight.
Tip 3: Start your
Title with your Keyword
I just started doing this over the past month as I recreated
my website Biomechanicallyfit.com and blog blog.biomechanicallyfit.com. I would assume this is due to the keyword
holding more weight compared to your other words in the title. Also, search engines really count on your
titles to know what your page is about.
Tip 4: Use multimedia
(pictures, video, infographics, etc.)
Placing multimedia in your blogs and website breaks up the
content and makes those pages more enjoyable to read. I have always known to do this but still lack
the discipline to add them as they typically take more time. Although, I will now try my best to add these when I can.
Tip 5: Place Outbound
Links in your Pages
Brian brought up a
really great point when he said people forget to do this and it helps search
engines figure out what your page is about but make sure it’s relevant
websites. As you can see, I did this as
I placed links back to his website.
Tip 6. Make Sharing Easy
I had share buttons on my old website but not on my new
one, so I just started to add these to my webpages. I found an easy way to do this from Addthis.com. Adding share buttons makes it really easy
from visitors to share your information quickly to friends and they might get
you a new client.
Tip 7: Create Long
Content to Post
This is great advice as I just started doing this more often. I
never thought about creating long pieces of content before because I always
thought people didn’t have time to read it, so make it short and simple. Short and simple, may work for some keywords
but if you're in a competitive market, Brian suggest more the better and I
would have to agree. Having more content
shows the search engines that it’s quality page and might be worth reading compared
to a 200 word post. He also suggest to post
at least 1000 words for competitive keywords.
These seven tips will help you get started on creating quality post and put you in front of the right people. I know I probably messed up
some of the tips from Backlinko.com, so please visit this website to learn
more about SEO and increasing your sales. I would
also like to thank Brian Dean from Backlinko.com for this great
