Major search engines such as Google, have primary search results, where web pages and other content such as videos, articles, documents and local listings are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to the user. Google crawls the web, indexes data, and presents search results using a scoring system called Page Rank to determine which links are presented first on the search results.

Your business’ online presence can be your most powerful tool, then why not enhance that powerful tool by investing some time in SEO, even if you have no time to do it yourself, you can hire freelance teams to optimise your online presence.

The Internet is presenting a lot of business opportunities, and Internet usage is ever-increasing.

Here are some TIPS on “HOW SEO CAN BE DONE RIGHT

  • Using catchy keywords for all your posts. Keywords are terms or (more often than not) phrases you would expect someone to search for to find your website. With SEO you pick your keywords and create pages focused on them.
  • Making sure you have back-links. Write press releases and articles and syndicate them on other sites. Link back to your site (using your keywords when possible) in the article signature block. Syndication, according to Search Engine Land is when you take content which is already published on your own site, and you give one or more other parties permission to post a copy of that content on their site.
  • The use of Meta Tags. According to Hobo , most Meta tags do not noticeably influence where a page ranks in Google in a positive way though, Meta tags, when used properly can still be useful in a number of areas outside just ranking pages e.g. to improve click-through rates from the SERP. Abuse them, and you might fall foul of Google’s punitive quality algorithms.
  • Google Trends is another tool you can use, as it can show you the rise of potential terms and SEO opportunities for your content in a graphical format, which is very easy to interpret.
