  5. 5. META Tag/Info One of the most important elements of SEO even in 2019 are your page’s META tags. META tags send information about your page to the search engine to be indexed and listed. Actions: Optimize each page of your website’s META tags. Title <title>insert page title here</title> Description <meta name="description" content="insert site description here” />
  6. 6. Headings In addition to your page title, search engines search your page’s heading titles to figure out the topic of each page. Adding relevant heading tags also makes it easier for your user to understand your website’s content. Actions: Optimize the Heading tags of each page on your website. H1 <h1>Main Heading Here</h1> By default in WordPress this is your page title. H2 <h2>Section Heading Here</h2> H3, etc <h3>Subsection Heading Here</h3>
  7. 7. Content Below your headings should be relevant content describing your company, product and/or services. Try to use your keywords in a way that people would search and in a variety of other ways including synonyms and common abbreviations. Actions: Use your target keyword/s in your page’s content. Also make sure to have sufficient amount of original text on each page (200+ words). Ex: keyword in Albuquerque, Albuquerque keyword, ABQ keyword, kywrd, searched words, etc
  8. 8. Images Images remain a key piece to any SEO campaign. Images stimulate users in a visual manner making for a better user experience while also allowing users to find you on social media and other image based searches. Actions: Optimize all your websites images and create image based content focused around your keywords and digital assets. Alt: Add alt text to images to send information about the image to search engines and screen readers. Title: Images titles can be view by a user hovering over an image and can be used to add information about the image. Caption: In WordPress a caption can be added which displays additional information below an image.
  9. 9. Calls to Action - CTAs Getting users the information they need right away is great but can sometimes send a negative signal to search engines. By adding actionable links, opt-ins, contact forms and clickable phone numbers on mobile you ensure you capture users’ information (leads!) and reduce the number of bounces (bad metric). Actions: Add CTAs on every page of your website in a place where the logical next step would be a contact or other action. Ex: Call Now, Read More, Learn More, View Product Description, View Gallery, Contact Us, Fill Out This Form, Sign Up For Our Newsletter, etc.
