Right now there are 634 million websites online. Having a website is critical, but it must also be findable. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of organically improving your rankings online. With the Internet being the first place a person goes to for information, it is essential for business owners to have their practice easily found online and SEO is the process of improving volume and traffic to your site. Effectively optimizing websites is the process of structuring webpages so they can be easily found, read and attractive to search engines. This can be done by:
1. Utilizing directory listings: Online directories are online guides that organize websites by subject. Networking through directories allows search engines to recognize and trust websites and places websites in a higher page ranking.
2. Including title tags on all pages: Title tags are the main text that describes online content. They appear in the browser, on search result pages and on external websites. Effective title tags on each page are essential for best search engine optimization practices.
3. Rotating and Updating Content: Search engines look for sites that have new and fresh content. Letting your website sit on content that hasn’t been updated, suggests that the information is old and not accurate. A great way to update content is by adding links to articles and changing those links every month. This gives your website new content and serves as a great resource for clients.
4. Strategically using effective content: Often times we are focused on filling our website up, but it’s not always quality information. Search engines look for quality content and it could actually hurt your website it there is more focus on quantity than quality.
