  • 3. Google Thinks Like We Do
    • It’s all about CONTENT and RELEVANCE
    • Every link should be aligned- domain to doorstep
    • Know your keywords; do good keyword research
    • Think like a searcher, not a website designer
    • Play by the rules:
      • Good Page Titles
      • Relevant Headings
      • Relevant Content
  • 4.
    • Use Words Wisely
      • Make sure each of your pages have a different keyword-rich title that begins with a primary keyword related to your business.
      • Use titles that describe what you do
      • Different on every page
      • Short and sweet – 70 characters
      • Use your keywords throughout pages
    Rule 1: Use Good Page Titles The page title is the first thing Google reads.
  • 5.
    • Google loves keywords- but not too many ;)
      • After the page title, the next bit of webpage text Google reads is the heading of the first paragraph.
      • Lead with the keyword
      • Be tight, concise, and readable
    Keyword-Rich Headings Validate your title with good page headings
  • 6.
    • Google reads your page looking for validation of the first two instances of your keywords (Page Title and Heading).
    • Make sure you include the same keyword or key phrase a couple of more times in the page especially in the first paragraph.
    Use Relevant Keywords in the Page Close the validation loop
  • 7.
    • The more relevant inbound links that point to your site, the better your site will get indexed by Google.
      • For example, you can create a separate blog that talks about trends in your industry and links to your website.
      • Another good source of an inbound link can come from a listing in a directory or though membership in a professional association.
