If your in the process of launching a new site, you may think that there isn’t much SEO optimization you could do. That’s not really true; there are several strategies that can be beneficial to your website before it’s out on the internet.
Here are some helpful tips to help you optimize your SEO before your website launch:
- Social Media Platforms: Create a Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, & Google Plus during the beginning process and try to gain your target audience and begin to engage with them through these platforms
- Drafting Blog Posts: Try to create organic content by writing up some blogs that will be ready to post once the new site is launched. It’s good to have plenty of fresh content on your website in the beginning so you will be all set for crawlers
- Optimizing all your pages: Using your keywords and services, create well-optimized pages with high-quality content, internal linking, and images. Also, make sure you fill out all your page titles and meta descriptions.
- Online Listings: Prior to launching a site, add your business information to online listings such as Yelp, Yellow Pages, and Yahoo Local.
If you don’t take the time to optimize your website before it launches, you could be at risk of poor indexing and your site not showing up high in search results. Once your website is live, make sure you take the proper SEO steps afterwards.
