10+ Essential SEO Tips for Website Optimization

SEO is a popular online marketing strategy by which you can optimize your website/blog for search engine, below are some important and simple strategies that you can execute yourself for free. Implementing these SEO strategies in your website will help you in driving traffic to your website from search engines and social media.

Find better keywords

Optimize for keywords that are closer to your topic and have fewer competitors. Google Trends and Google’s Keyword Tool in AdWords are free tools that should give you all the data you need.

Delete duplicate content

Google Search Console will display any instances of duplicate content it finds on your site. Usually, these are the result of canonicity errors (not plagiarism), but you still need to fix this to keep your site in good standing.

Fix 404 errors

These errors are like dead ends, and nobody likes dead ends. Again, refer to Google Search Console for help, and set up 301 redirects where required to close the gaps here.

Write a unique title tag for every page

Every page should have a title tag, of fewer than 70 characters, that describes the page, features the desired keyword and is matchless from every other title tag on your website. For a more comprehensive guide on on-site optimization, see this article.

Write a compelling meta description for every page

Every page should also have a meta description, under 160 characters, that more elaborately describes the page. The meta description probably doesn’t play much of a role in your definite page rankings, but it certainly affects click-through rates. There’s evidence that click-through rates affect rankings, though, so ensure that your meta descriptions are unique, concise and compelling.

Clean up your URL structure

Your URLs should have a breadcrumbs trail and feature readable indicators of the content on the page, such as the page title. Avoid using numbers or random strings of text in your URLs.

Update your blog often

More content, as long as it’s valuable to readers, is never a bad thing. Google recently released an algorithm update that seems to favor fresh content, so keeping your blog updated is more beneficial than ever before.

Include H1, H2, H3… headers in your content

Your content should be logically divided into subsections, with headlines and sub-heads. These need to be marked with html tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.) to help Google process and understand the intent and organization of your content.

Add internal links

Linking together the relevant pages of your site is good for user experience, and helps Google better understand relationships between pages on your site. If your site is on WordPress, there are plugins that can automatically help, such as SEO Auto links.

Optimize your images

Your images should be optimized for SEO too, and that task is relatively simple — title them suitably, add descriptive alt tags and keep them in the proper format.

Reference authoritative outside sources

Google pays attention to what you link to in an article. Citing authoritative sources to back up your claims will make your content more credible and trustworthy to Google as well as to your readers.

Include social media integrations

Every article on your site should be accompanied by social share icons; social shares serve as indirect ranking signals, giving you the opportunity to earn more inbound links, which pass authority back to your site.

Optimize your website loading speed

This can be as simple or as complicated as you make it; there are several ways to make a site faster, such as reducing image sizes, adding a caching plugin, switching hosting providers and deleting unnecessary plugins.

Optimize for mobile devices

The majority of Google search now occurs on mobile devices, so if your site doesn’t display attractively for mobile users, you could be missing out on a huge chunk of traffic. Also, Google will not display your website obviously in mobile search results if your website isn’t mobile-optimized.

Earn some links

As a consistent strategy, link-building demands heavy investment, but if you’re just getting started, you can earn some links by: 1) getting active enough in your community to earn media coverage; 2) publishing an opinion about a controversial topic you’re qualified to write about; or 3) reaching out to a publication in your industry to secure a guest posting opportunity. These days, there are really only three viable strategies for link building; this article covers them.

Remove bad links

Use Google Search Console to download a list of links to your website. Then, evaluate your link profile and identify “bad” links from low-authority sources. Remove them manually or through an email request to the webmaster.

Syndicate your content

You’re writing lots of great content, but what are you doing with it? Take a moment to syndicate your content through social media channels, which increases the likelihood that it will earn rank-boosting links to your site.

These tactics alone won’t promise you a top ranking for a competitive keyword, nor are they suitable to manage a campaign in the long term, but they will stretch you a strong boost and a good foundation to build an ongoing strategy. Building a full campaign from scratch takes time, effort and patience — and you’ll probably run into hurdles.

Make Backlinks regularly

Last but not least; making backlinks for your website regularly can help your website rank higher in search engines. Backlinks can also help you to get higher DA & PA for your domain.

Summary:

If you follow the above strategies and implement them in your website/blog, you will surely get better ranking in search engines as well as in Alexa (The Web Information Company).
