7 Steps to Certain SEO Success


Increasingly, search engines are doing a good job of delivering trustworthy, relevant results when people search for information. Which is good news for consumers, and also good news for businesses trying to attract more search traffic – because the following best practice SEO strategies really haven’t changed, and are still highly effective.

  1. Keyword Research

Choosing the right keywords is still a critical part of any SEO strategy – as it puts the right foundation in place to build upon.

  1. Competitive Analysis

Studying and learning from competitors who are ahead of you in search results can give a clearer picture of the effort required to match or overtake them.

  1. Website Optimization

The primary goal of onsite optimization techniques is to help the search engines easily understand what your website is about, so they can categorize it correctly.

  1. Address Domain Authority

A major SEO factor is the strength of your domain – meaning the number and quality of websites, blogs, social media portals and directories that link back to your site.

  1. Content Strategy

Consistently creating high-quality content is still by far the best way to rank well in search engines results, with the emphasis being on quality over quantity.

  1. Social Media Strategy

The amount of social signals associated with your content is an indicator of how valuable your content is to your users, and a reflection of your industry authority.

  1. Measure, Report, Improve

Measuring progress is also critical to a successful search strategy, as detailed  reporting allows you to make informed decisions before making improvements.
