The most important thing to know about SEO when it relates to getting traffic to your website is to keep it simple. The top 2 strategies that come to mind are your keyword and link building strategy.
After you’ve selected your keywords by building your target keyword list, the next goal in building a search engine optimization (SEO) strategy is to match each of those keywords to pages on your website. Where do you start, though?
Focusing on quick fixes that allow you to quickly make improvements in rankings and getting more traffic to your website is where you want to focus your attention.
1. Develop and research the right keywords: your target keyword list must relate to, match up with, and/or tie in with the subject or theme of your site. If your site name has a keyword in it that helps as well.
2. Understand What’s Driving Web Traffic to Your Site: You must know how many page views and inbound links your pages are attracting, seek out an analytics service if your webhost does not provide understandable data.
3. Do Some Competitive Research: take a peek at your competitors’ pages to see if any of them relate to the same keyword or phrase that you use and then gather some data to assist you in removing them from your path to the top of the search engines. Look for things like:
How have they optimized their title tags, and/or where are their inbound links coming from. Those are just 2 areas that you can make adjustments and see improved ranking from in a short amount of time.
SEO for increased web traffic doesn’t have to be an impossible feat, especially if you focus on the low-hanging fruit already on your website. You can also do just a few hours of research and save yourself both time and money by making thses tweaks yourself instead of paying an SEO Guru. With focused SEO effort and a solid strategy you can drive sustainable traffic over time and monetize it at the same time for a powerful and profitable combination.
