We know SEO isn’t always easy but here’s three things you can get done by lunchtime today!
With the start of a new year, it’s time to update your digital strategy and start afresh on your SEO. So let’s get right into it do some SEO before lunch. Ready? Let’s go…
Online reviews are crucial. These can appear on pages like Google+ or Yelp. Though you can’t monitor exactly what is said about the business in them, they do provide valuable inbound links. To utilise these effectively:
To achieve this you can ask satisfied customers to leave Google Reviews. Gaining at least 5 positive reviews on Google will provide a small SEO boost and can be accomplished by either requesting for them via email or phone.
There are heaps of great online tools that will analyse your website and give you tips that can be implemented to improve a range of aspects on your site.
The first is Google’s Page Speed test. This will let you know how fast your site is on both mobile and desktop, giving you an overall score out of 100. It will also tell you how to fix anything that may be dragging you’re speed and hence your rankings down. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/
