We will go over how to optimize the content on your website for search engine optimization. These basic tips will help you get a baseline of an understanding to build upon and further optimize your content.

A Perfectly Optimized Page

Make Sure your Content is Unique

The first thing you should do is to make sure the content on your website is all 100% unique. Everything on your website should be in your own words, even if it’s just a sentence or a complete page. If you have content on your website that is copied, Google will notice it immediately, your website will be penalized and you will drop in ranking.

Choose your Keywords Wisely

You can choose what keywords you want to promote on your website by what the search terms are that people are searching for. For example, you can look at your Google Search Console and find out how people are landing on your website to help with your organic ranking. If you are a breakfast cafe and you optimize your website with the keywords breakfast cafe, but people are searching for a breakfast restaurant. You may want to think about changing your keywords in order to capture more visitors on the website.

Proofread and Proofread Again

Your content’s grammar should be perfect. If it’s not, then Google will consider your content to be poor, which could give you another different penalty. With any penalty, you won’t rank as high as you could be. There are editing extensions that you can download onto your browser as well as spell check.

Localize Your Services

To optimize your services and website locally this means that you are including your location throughout your website and posts. As the whole country is turning to find services/businesses online, it’s important to make sure that the people who are finding your website would be able to be a customer.

If we use the breakfast cafe example and the cafe is located in Boston, MA but a user in San Diego, CA finds the website of the cafe. If that specific user decides to go to the cafe, but then realizes it’s in Boston, MA. You have then lost that potential customer. If it’s clear to search enginges where your cafe is, that wouldn’t have been a problem.
