Too many people preach keyword-stuffing practices. They don’t realize there is a lot more that needs to be done in order to achieve better SEO.
Stuffing keywords with the intent of improving search engine rankings doesn’t work on its own. Though heavy use of relevant keywords can help your search engine rank, you can’t forget to create content that is readable and useful to your audience.
Here are some SEO tips that are important to keep in mind as you implement your keywords and key phrases.
Write for humans, not for search engines
Too many content writers make this mistake. They think they are writing for Google. You must understand you are not writing for the search engine alone. You are writing for your target audience. And before starting writing you must understand the pain points and interests of your target audience.
Remove anything that slows down your site
You want users to stay engaged with your website, read your content, and take action. For these goals, it is important to provide them with a friendly browsing experience. If your website takes time to load and is not mobile-friendly, users will drop off quickly. Instead, they may look elsewhere for similar services or content.
Partner with other sites to increase visibility
You have heard that backlinking is important for strong search engine ranking. But if you link to spammy sites, your site will be in danger. So you have to look for websites that are trustworthy and have an excellent reputation in the industry. You can also backlink to another webpage on your own website; especially to your “Contact Us” page.
There are many other techniques you need to apply to your website to get a high rank in the search engines, so remember to go beyond keyword research and do everything you can to improve your site’s SEO.
