Top 5 tips to impove SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

If you have a personal or business website, it is important to make sure your website is visible to the public and SEO help your website rank higher when search engine users search topics that are relevant to your website. According to WINWEB Business Blog, the following 5 SEO tips will help maximize the visibility of your website:

  1. Before you conduct any SEO activity, you need to choose your search keywords wisely. You can check the popularity of relevant keywords at many websites for free, including Google Insights. A search term with a high popularity and low competitiveness is ideal.
  2. The domain name of your website should include a search keyword. For example, if you have a designer shoes website, having a url such as designershoes.co.uk would increase visibility. The keyword or words should also be included in the ‘meta tag’ in the coding of the home page.
  3. Ensure that you have plenty of links coming into your website, from online press releases, partner sites, emails, blogs, social networking sites and more. To maximize the effect of your SEO, they should be high quality and come through to as many different pages on your website as possible, where relevant, not just the home page.
  4. Add good quality keyword-rich content onto your website, including articles, blog entries and general page content. If you use them too much in the text, the search engines become suspicious and will lower the rank of your page; around 2-8% usage in the website text is thought to be ideal for SEO.
  5. Use relevant SEO keywords in the navigation of your pages. This means that your main keywords are in prime location on every page of your website, maximising your search engine ranking.

    Thanks for this, i find that most South-African website owners do not know much about SEO, so this will surely help them a lot. Worth a mention is also the On-Page SEO of you website, it is vital to have your robots.txt file set up correctly so the right parts of your website gets indexed, and also make good use of the meta and description tags in your coding. They tell a lot about your website to the search engines. If you are using wordpress search for SEO ad-dons there are many to choose from which will dynamically create meta and description tags for each of your post pages.

    Anyways thanks for this post once again!
