5 simple SEO Tips

It is possible to get onto the 1st page of google by following these simple steps.

1. Properly structured HTML.

  • Your H1 tag should be at the top of the page and contain your keyword phrase.
  • Your page title and meta tags should also contain your keyword phrase.
  • 300 words of relevant content on the keyword subject
2. Get a site map. 

These can be XML or HTML. Use google webmaster tools to help you out.

3. Links in

Getting other sites to link back to your website is very important. Try to get links from relevant or high ranking websites as google will value these more.

4. Choose your keyword phrase carefully.

There are a lot of keyword phrases that will be very hard to rank highly for. Popular search terms like, 'buy books online' or 'web designer' will have many people competing for the top page. Use google keyword tool to help you find keyword phrase that have low competition and high numbers of searches per month.

5. Stick at it and gain traffic

It can take a while before you see some results, the google bots are fairly slow movers. In this time you should be generating traffic through,
  • Social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook
