There are plenty of things you can do to improve your search engine optimization strategy. You don’t need to make it overly difficult, and it’s important to understand that you need to focus on your long-term results. The websites that drive the most traffic with search engine optimization use long-term strategies and focus on growing their traffic over time.

You need to first find the top keywords for your business, and you can do that with the Google Ads Keyword Planner and a tool like UberSuggest.

You need a content creation and publishing schedule if you want to keep up with your SEO content. You need to create content around your top keywords, publish new content regularly, and continue to grow your search engine rankings.

3. Optimize for Long-Tail Keywords to Help Rank for Short-Tail Keywords

It’s easier to rank for long-tail keywords than short-tail keywords because of overall competition for keywords that have the top average monthly searches.

4. Look at the Top Content for Your Top Search Engine Keywords

To understand the type of content you need to create, you need to look at the top content for the keywords you are trying to rank for. You can see the top marketers and what they are ranking for to improve your own content creation strategy.

5. Use the Google Search Console to Find Keywords You Rank For and Your Top Pages

Use the Google Search Console aka Google Webmaster Tools to improve your current rankings, find your top search queries, find opportunities for your business, and improve your top pages.

6. Use On-Page SEO Strategies to Optimize The Content You Are Creating

There are tons of on-page search engine optimization strategies and you want to optimize your content to improve your SEO efforts.

7. Update Old Content to Improve it and Keep the Information Relevant

Keep all of your website content up to date and continue to update your content and keep it as relevant as possible.

How do I increase my SEO ranking?

Create content regularly, promote your content, and focus on top keywords. Continue to improve your content over time and stick to one single niche so you aren’t creating content about everything possible.

What is the best way to do SEO for your website?

Look at long-term strategies and continue to learn SEO over the course of time. You will struggle to learn if you don’t know the top SEO Tips and Tricks and if you don’t improve your website and your content.

Does PageSpeed Actually Impact SEO? [New Experiment]

Does page loading speed actually affect Google rankings? I decided to find out.

And the results will probably surprise you.

First, a little bit of background. Google has stated several times on the record that site loading speed impacts SEO. The slower your site is, in general, the worse it will rank in the search results.

But they’ve never said how important speed actually is. Is it a Google ranking factor that’s a key part of the algorithm? Or a minor thing that won’t make much of a difference in practice.

Well, I decided to find out. Specifically, I ran a little SEO experiment. This experiment took one page that loaded SUPER slowly according to Google PageSpeed Insights… and sped it up significantly.

Then, I tracked the rankings and organic traffic to that page.

That way, we could control speed as variable (as much as you can control any variable in an SEO experiment!).

The results were… interesting to say the least.
