What's SEO? How to do it efficiently?

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It’s the practice of increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure to your brand, through non-paid (also known as "organic") search engine results.

In simpler terms, Search Engine Optimization is a way to improve your website so that it will appear closer to the top positions in the search results of Google, Yahoo, Bing, or other search engines.

It is an easy and effective way to introduce and market a company by using a web page. In order to achieve this, information related to the company is obtained by using search engines. In a competitive business environment, moving up to top lists can be achieved by using search engine optimization.

 

How to Increase SEO?

1.      Create high quality content

Google will always rank content that answers users’ questions and provides good user experiences. Therefore, one of the most important things you can do to improve website SEO is to create high-quality content. A small tip here, you can think who is your primary audience first before creating any content.

Besides that, your content should also be easy and enjoyable to consume. For example, splitting blocks of text with headings, multimedia elements, and bullet-lists can make the content easier to read. You should also make sure that your content contains only accurate information, fluently, and uses correct spelling and grammar.

 

2.      Conduct keyword research

You need to optimize it for the keywords they’re searching for your audience to find your content while searching. To find the best keywords to target, you need to conduct keyword research regarding your products or services of your business.

Getting links from well-known, authoritative sites is one of the most effective ways to enhance SEO. When you create high-quality content, you will naturally get links, but there are several strategies you can use to increase the number of links you get.

             You can also contact people directly and recommend that they link to your page. For example, you could suggest that they add your page to the list of resources, or replace a broken link with a link to your page.

As everyone knows, Google not only values attractiveness but freshness too. Freshness is very important if the information in your post will eventually become outdated.  If you notice your page’s rankings are dropping, don’t panic! It reminds you to add more new content in your webpage!

Browse old posts regularly and update statistics to reflect the latest research. As you learn more about the topic, add new information to the page to make it more comprehensive.
