4 Tips to Improve SEO for new Website

The hardest of a new website is getting off the ground. You have created your content. You have also created as many links as possible. Having done all that your website still does not attract many visitors. Use the 4 SEO tips below to start to grow your visitor traffic.

Content strategy

Having an effective SEO content strategy can help you improve your site’s overall ranking. Who's the target audience for this content? What topics and keywords are important to your business or the services you offer.

Your competitors will most likely offer similar services to yours, so you need to let potential customers know what makes yours superior. Prove why you're worth buying from and why you are worth listening to.

Backlink Opportunity

Backlinks are links that are directed towards your website. The number of backlinks is an indication of the popularity or importance of that website. Backlinks are important for SEO because some search engines, especially Google, will give more credit to websites that have a good number of quality backlinks, and consider those websites more relevant than others in their results pages for a search query.

Create a hitlist of Banklink opportunities. Check out your competitors banklinks, If you don’t have a list you are not going to know who to get backlinks from, don’t try for all the backlinks only the ones that provide relevant content.

Accessibility of Your website.

How quickly does your website load, not just on a desktop but also mobile devices. Since 9th July 2018 have been using mobile page load times as a ranking factor. Slow load times could affect your google ranking. Take the opportunity not only to ensure that your website is responsive but also loads quickly. Use tools such as google page insights or gtmetrix to identify areas that are causing bottle necks with page load times. The quality of your hosting server, image optimisation and the use of unnecessary plugins can influence how quick your web page loads.
