Search Engine Optimization can be a tricky part of your online presence. Many bloggers, business owners, and beginning marketers struggle to detect and comprehend even the most obvious truths about SEO. Thus, struggling to achieve the results they wish to accomplish.
In this article, we will go through some of the most basic SEO fundamentals that you need to pay attention to.
SEO Is Not A Minor Detail
To begin with, it’s vital for everyone working in your business to know that SEO is as important as any other vital part of the business. All employees should participate in SEO efforts, regardless of their seniority and job description. It’s super important to make everyone involved in the business aware of the importance of SEO.
SEO should be developed and executed on a daily basis and it’s not something you fix every week or two. If your target customers are online, and in 2022 they most likely are, then SEO should be discussed in every meeting and before taking any decision.
Don’t Compete with Google
Many people make the mistake of trying to beat Google’s algorithm. Trust me, you will never be able to do that. That’s simply because the changes and updates to the algorithm never stop and no matter how much effort you put into it; you will still have a lot to cover.
However, you can always study surpass your competition; study them and compare their efforts, and results, with yours. Try to determine what’s working for them and which keywords are making the difference and ranking them higher.
Remember, you can’t beat the algorithm but you can always beat your competitors.
Organized Websites Make Better SEO Results; Siloing
When organizing the content on your website, try your best to concentrate all details about a certain keyword in one section. For example, let’s say you sell cameras; the best you can do here is to dedicate different pages to different kinds of cameras. Mirrorless cameras on a page, DSLRs on a different page, and compact cameras on a separate page too.
This is important to establish yourself as an expert, or an important seller, of the product/service in question. Having all these details and information in one section will allow Google to determine that your website is rich in that keyword and searchers will benefit from finding you.
Please Don’t Settle for Incompetent and Cheap Search Engine Optimization
Incompetent SEO will do you more harm than good. No business should expect cheap SEO to get results. In fact, it will only do the opposite.
It’s important to invest in SEO right from the beginning because once things start going wrong, it will take more effort, time and resources to fix it at a later stage.
