In this post, I will be sharing with you the 5 basic SEO tips that will help you improve the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of your website.
Now just for clarification and understanding Search Engine Optimization is the act of ranking your web pages highly in search results of search engines such are Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
And If it is done correctly, you could generate a lot of traffic to your website.
Basic SEO tips that will make you rank higher on Google.
Submit your website to Google and Bing Webmaster tools.
By submitting your website to Google and Bing, you are actually telling them your website is alive and when they get notified, they will do the work by finding your website and crawl where necessary.
Classified ads and Industry Directories.
My tip number two is to submit your website to Classified advertisement and also to Directories. This is very ideal if you’re a service-based business for example if you’re a plumber or you are offering some specific type of services then it is very important for you to work with this.
It is also a great way to build what is known as backlinks. Some of these Advertising Industries have been in operation for many years and have very high domain authority and if you can get then to link back to you it will improve your chances of ranking in the search engines.
NOTE: No every Classified ads or directory will allow you to add a link back to your website unless you have a premium or paid plan. But this is can also be a good opportunity for you to add exposure for them linking to your website so I recommend you consider going for their premium plan as well.
Links from Social media account.
This is the act of link your website to your social media account. So, I recommend you have a Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter account and lots more as it is also a very good means of generating traffic to your website. It is also a way of creating backlinks to your website so Google will see these links and also associate them to your site.
This actually takes a little more work but it is definitely worth it.
Try finding websites related to work or services and see if you could contribute a guest article.
For example, you might be into Cooking related articles and you find a website that also does the same thing as you do, you could actually contribute to the website also.
With this, you get enough exposure and backlinks from the other website especially if it is a high domain authority site.
Now my fifth and final tip is:
When you create other pages or articles on your website, try to also link to other pages of your own website and another website too.
Now, when you link to other pages of your website make sure to always use a hyperlink (this is when a text is clickable) and it links up to other pages of your website.
So here you go those are 5 basic tips that will help with the Search Engine Optimization of your website and help you grow.
