Today, we’re going to talk about your website and SEO and all that fun stuff (that makes you want to pull your hair out if you — like me — aren’t much of a techie). This is going to be rough, so fasten your seatbelts!
First: improve your website. This article has 16 tips you can start with. Is 16 too many? Here are the five things you absolutely should have in your website.
Second: are you using meta tags correctly? Do you have good descriptive tags for your content, that will help users understand what your site is about (and hopefully, push you higher up search results as well)?
- SEOmoz explains all about title tags — what they are, what html code to use, and best practices you should follow.
- Ditto for meta descriptions.
- The above two won’t help you with search rankings, though. What will? The images on your site, that’s what. Neil Patel tells you how to optimize images for search.
If you blog, claim your authorship on Google. I don’t hang out much on Google Plus, but this is one reason why you should absolutely be using it if you’re a blogger.
If you need to move your domain, here’s how to go about it. As you know, we moved a month ago from BetterMarketing.in to Markitty.com. In this post on Search Engine People, I explain every step of how we did it with minimal impact to our site or search results.
And lastly, if you’re also using WordPress, avoid these five mistakes.
