1. SEO Analysis
You can’t solve issues if you don’t know what’s wrong with your site.
2. Link Building
This might be one of the most important parts to getting your site moving on the ranks in the beginning.
Tons of companies offer services like:
- Forum Link Building
- Directory Listings
- Article Submission
3. Solid Sitemapping
You can create a version by using a Sitemap Generator, or even by using a plugin on your blog. What works best for you will be determined by your computer knowledge.
When you have your sitemap you can enter them into your Google Webmaster Tools to get some benefit from the Google crawlers.
4. Be Mindful of Your Analytics
There are many options out there for keeping track of your website visitors. Google Analytics has updated reports on traffic data like visitors, keywords, pageviews, traffic sources, and even mapping to show where those clicks originated. There are many more options and you should explore all of them you understand – and find tutorials on the ones you don’t understand.
5. Deep SEO Relevant Content
Write solid content for your blog or website. Keep the information current and fresh (as in constantly updated). Try and post something new at least once a week on website if you can. You will see a benefit when the site appears to be cared for and updated. One benefit will be from the rankings on search engines, and the other will be from your readers.
We hesitated posted our feedburner for the longest time because our readers would blast up and then when we took more than one week off from writing a post, we would lose 20-30 or more readers faster than we gained them. Keep that in mind when keeping your information fresh and relevant.
Any time you put content on your website or blog remember to keep that information focused on your subject. The more you use a certain keyword or keyword terms in your combined copy, the more it will appear relevant to your site.
