Contact South West Web Marketing Five Quick Search Engine Optimisation Wins

If you haven't previously used SEO, or if your website isn't achieving the good search engine rankings you deserve, these 5 simple SEO tips will help you get better results.

1) Think like the user

You need potential customers to find your site more quickly by appearing higher in search rankings than your competition. Try entering a range of relevant search terms in the main search engines, and see how your site ranks. Look at the sites which come above yours and try to see why - maybe they use the search terms in page tags, or throughout their site? Do they have video, or more links? Find out what they are doing, and do it better.

2) Use (Google) Analytics to assess keywords

Use free tools such as Google Analytics to see which keywords are driving most traffic to your website. Check non-performing keywords, and see if you can change your website to incorporate them - maybe by using them in page titles or high up on the text of landing pages or as anchor text on internal links.

Also use Google's keyword tool to suggest new keywords, similar to those which you are already using, and also to crawl your own site to see which terms have most search results.

You can also use Google Analytics to see which are the best - and worst - performing pages on your site, and adjust them accordingly.

3) Optimise page titles

Page titles or tags are very important for SEO. They should describe the content of the page (in a unique way), and should contain at least one or two keywords.

Make sure all page titles are unique, and sufficiently different to be picked up by the search engine spiders.

4) Manage links efficiently

Talk to customers, suppliers and other companies in your sector about having reciprocal links to your site. Ask them to use specific keyword-based wording for the link - rather than your company name, or 'click or link here'.

Go through your site carefully and look where you can add more relevant internal links, and check the wording of each. Ideally, you should use different wording for the same links. This will improve SEO.

5) Maximise your use of social media

Social platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest can all have a remarkable impact on search engine performance, given their increasingly close relationships with the main search engines.

It's important to use any social media platform properly - a Facebook or Google+ page with one entry on it is not worth having. Set aside time to work on social media and keep it updated at all times.
