Website SEO instructions

Introduction: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plays a crucial role in improving your website's visibility in search engine results and attracting organic traffic. This instruction sheet provides a step-by-step guide to implementing basic SEO practices on your website.

  1. Keyword Research: a. Identify relevant keywords: Use tools like Google Keyword Planner or Ubersuggest to find keywords related to your website's content. b. Choose primary and secondary keywords: Select a primary keyword for each page and additional secondary keywords that support your content. For instance naming your services page "services" is not going to get you ranked on Google you could try and use a term like "website services in NSW" - that would be one that I might use. On the page of your keyword make sure you use the H1 title (when you are choosing the font and heading font) and only use the H1 on this keyword, not anywhere else on the page. (see point 2).

  2. On-Page Optimisation: a. Page Titles: Include your primary keyword in the page title (preferably at the beginning) to help search engines understand your content. b. Meta Descriptions: Write compelling meta descriptions that accurately summarise your page's content and include relevant keywords. c. Heading Tags: Use H1, H2, and H3 tags to structure your content, including your primary and secondary keywords where appropriate. d. URL Structure: Create descriptive and concise URLs that include your primary keyword. e. Content Optimisation: Incorporate your primary and secondary keywords naturally throughout your content while ensuring it remains informative and engaging. f. Image Optimisation: Use descriptive file names and alt tags for images, including relevant keywords where appropriate.

  3. Technical Optimisation: a. Website Speed: Optimise your website's loading speed by compressing images, minifying CSS and JavaScript files, and utilizing caching techniques. b. Mobile-Friendliness: Ensure your website is mobile-friendly and responsive to provide a seamless user experience across different devices. c. URL Canonicalisation: Implement canonical tags to prevent duplicate content issues and consolidate the link equity of similar pages. d. XML Sitemap: Create and submit an XML sitemap to search engines to help them crawl and index your website effectively.

  4. Link Building: a. Internal Links: Establish a logical internal linking structure within your website, connecting relevant pages to help search engines understand your content hierarchy. b. External Links: Seek opportunities to acquire backlinks from authoritative and relevant websites, as they can boost your website's credibility. c. Social Media: Promote your website and its content through social media channels to increase visibility and attract potential backlinks.

  5. Monitoring and Analysis: a. Install Analytics: Set up Google Analytics to monitor website traffic, user behaviour, and other essential metrics. b. Search Console: Utilise Google Search Console to analyse your website's performance, indexation status, and resolve any errors or issues.

  6. Content Creation and Updates: a. Regular Updates: Publish fresh and relevant content consistently to engage your audience and signal to search engines that your website is active. b. Quality Content: Focus on creating high-quality, valuable, and shareable content that aligns with user intent and satisfies search queries.

Remember that SEO is an ongoing process, and it may take time to see significant results. Regularly monitor and adapt your SEO strategies based on changing algorithms and industry trends.
