How Do I SEO My Site For Search – On Page Optimization.

Searh Engine Optimization in CTIY, MarylandI get this question a lot, and even though I think there isn’t an absolute answer, I tend to think there are basic formulas to abide by. If you have not had the time to reference that Google PDF document I provided a link to above, then these pointers will help you until you do.

Quick Note: If you provide a service in Aberdeen then you will want to consider using Aberdeen in your articles and descriptions as they apply to the fundamentals listed below.

These Are Some On Page SEO Fundamentals.

• URL – Consider the article you will be writing for your page, now be sure you name the URL path something relevant to the article. The URL path helps to identify a page. If you are optimizing your site for “good food in Aberdeen” make sure that is found in the page URL path.

• Yoast – Most WordPress users rely on plugins to optimize their site. A popular plugin installed as of this writing is Yoast SEO. Yoast SEO has some basic features, in addition to advanced functionality. Getting the Yoast plugin installed will allow you to configure your site more thoroughly.

• Links & Anchor Text – Be sure to include an outbound “nofollow” link to a site that also offers value to the reader. Do not include an outbound authority link to another website about the same product or service, instead include the link with anchor to something semi- relevant but isn’t in direct competition with the subject you are attempting to rank your page for. Creating an outbound link to another local Aberdeen business will help provide geographic relevance also.

• H Tags – If you are using a page building tool that gives you the opportunity to create H Tags then be sure to do it. An H Tag is is a headline, use it to tell a reader what the article is about.

• Content – Provide as much engaging content to the viewer as you can, see below. This includes images, writings, motion graphics, docs, Google maps, outbound links to social networks, and more.

• Photos – If you can make quality photos to include on your site then do it. Be sure to label your pictures with topical wording that fits with the rest of the page content. Also be sure to label the photos according to what they actually are. Do not label a graphic of a computer a hard drive.

Note: If the image was taken at a park in Aberdeen then consider labeling it “Aberdeen town park” if that is what the photo is.

• Article – Provide value with the content your creating. Make sure that when people land on your site and read your article that it is relevant to the search wordsthey typed to find you. It’s recommended that you write a minimum of three hundred words, anything above that is a plus. Also, if someone in Aberdeen is searching for your products or services, clarifying that your business is actually in Aberdeen proves to be extremely beneficial to search.

• Videos – In an ideal situation your web page would be flowing with quality content. Articles, images, motion graphics, outbound links, documents, and anything else beneficial to the content. You can create great videos on your mobile device and post it to Dailymotion. Embedding a hosted video provides value for you and your viewers. It gives the viewer another piece of quality content to interact with, and it gives the search engines more content to index. This is a win-win.

How Do I SEO My Website – Off Page Optimization

Off page SEO refers to other properties and the inbound links coming from them. Those links are called backlinks. The referring site can be another blog or business, a social property like Twitter, a citation, or blog comment linking back to your site. There are other ways of receiving backlinks, but these are common methods and are typically simple to obtain.

• Link Outreach – You have probablyI’m sure you have done business with another business that has a website, or you have an acquaintance or networking associates that have sites. Just reach out to one of these individuals and ask them to post an article about you or your company on there. My suggestion is that you create it to save them the time. Be sure to create a ”dofollow” backlink” to your {site and return the favor to them by creating a link to their page from your site.

• Social Properties – By setting up social accounts like Instagram, G+, Pinterest, and Reddit you have the option to send links to your site from the account profile. You can also send links out from a post within these properties. Lots of ways to send links, just gotta get creative.

• Citations – Citations are a great way to create a link. Building business profiles in local directories like Yelp, Google Maps, Yellowpages, or foursquare will provide you with the opportunity to not only build a local presence in Aberdeen on those profiles but to also link back to your site from that profile.

• Blog Comments – I have experienced personal success locating blogs on the web that were topical to my page and commenting on them with a link back to my site. Without being a spammer, find an relevant web page, comment and engage with the community, and leave a link in your comment that refers back to your page. That is a backlink.

In this ever growing world of internet technology, what might be an important variable now could become less relevant in the future. We believe by following W3C standards, following OGP , and utilizing Schema you will have success optimizing your content for years to come. Hacks and short cuts never last long, loop holes are cut off every day and the algorithms are only getting more advanced. Take the time to educate yourself, take time to do it right and at the end of the day you will find your content to be ranking for a long time.
