#1 –Content is King

Exactly. If you don’t have what users want, why would they even want to visit your website? Search engines particularly pay attention to how much time users spend on a website (Dwell Time) and based on the results, rank websites higher or lower. So, start by putting relevant content which is helpful for your users and adds value to the experience. You can start by learning more about your target audience and the type of topics relevant to them.

#2 – Experience Matters

How do you feel while navigating through a slow website? Do you like to click on links that don’t guide you anywhere on the internet? Even search engines don’t like inconsistent, slow to load and erroneous web pages on the internet. In the end, it’s about user experience and if your website lacks a smooth, intuitive and responsive feel, your SEO will automatically take a hit. Thus, start looking for broken links, unoptimized web pages, page load stats and duplicate content and get rid of redundancy and inconsistency.

#3 –Tell a Story

With a plethora of information available on the internet, what sets your content apart from the rest? The best way to do that is to add images, relevant links and appealing content on the latest and most popular topics. It is all about investing time in your content strategy and monitoring the trends and developments to stay on top. Think from a user perspective and combine focussed content, alt text and metadata to add personality to your website.

#4 –Get Social

An essential part of boosting your website SEO is achieved through high quality link building and social media sites are a great way of doing that. By building links with your social channels, you will rank higher in search engines as well as bring traffic to your website. Additionally, social media pages with a large number of quality followers also rank better in searches on the internet. (Talk about killing three birds with one arrow!)

#5 – Start Structuring – Give the right title and definition to every single page of your website to ensure search engine algorithms understand your website better and ranks it higher. From naming your site sections and subsections to picking up short and clean titles for your webpages, you must carefully work out the structure of your website as it allows both users and search engine algorithms to find content easily, thereby increasing the SEO of your website significantly.

So, there you have it – 5 simple, easy to follow tips and tricks to get you started on creating or updating your website to be SEO friendly and rich with relevant, focussed content that ranks higher in search engine rankings.
