Tip 03: Get Images and Videos

You need to have an engaging website that not only has quality written content but also images. You can use photos from your own company, or you could go down the royalty-free route by using free stock imagery on sites such as Adobe Stock. By using high quality imagery on your site it will help keep the site visitor engaged with your content, keeping them on your site longer and enabling you to get your message across.

Tip 04: Build Links

The more links to your website, the higher it will rank with search engines. You can use social media or article marketing to build links and get high traffic back to your site. It’s a good idea to have short articles on blog sites where you link back to your original content; this is known as guest blogging.

Using WordPress on your website is a good idea. There are plugins that can help with your website, one of the best we’ve used is NitroPack. But WP Fastest Cache or WP Rocket are also worth looking at.

Tip 06: Meta Description & Page Titles

The meta description and title of a web page is highly important for your SEO. It helps the search engines understand the subject and topic of a page, as a result which keywords your content might rank for.

The meta description is a brief, descriptive summary of your page’s content. It will show up in search engine results pages for your targeted keywords and phrases, so it must be relevant to the topic being searched.

In order to get traffic a website, it is essential to identify which keywords potential customers are searching for. Page titles should have those keywords in them. The page title also makes up the clickable link within the Search Engine Results pages (SERPS).
