In this post, I will share with you 4 SEO tips that will help you make more money online.
Stick to High Quality Relevant Content Always
High quality relevant content that adds value to searchers is the cornerstone of a good SEO strategy. Every piece of content that goes on your website or is associated with you in any way should adhere to the same high quality standards. Post Google Panda, not only are content farms out of business, the focus has also shifted to making the content interesting so that the bounce rate is reduced. Of course content has to be suitably keyword optimized.
Use Social Media Effectively
Social media is an important SEO parameter that increases your search ranking so that you can make more money online.
Keyword rich social media profiles figure high on the search results and enable searchers quickly understand what services you offer and if it fits in what they want. Build an authority website with social media. And authority websites attract higher rankings. Social media can also help build quality inbound links that are positive SEO signals.
Optimize for Local SEO
If you want to attract customers from a specific location, use geo-targeted keywords. Use your city name as a keyword and optimize content accordingly. For example, instead of saying “best florist???, you could say “best florist Pasadena??? in your keyword. Listing in local business associations, Chamber of Commerce etc is a good SEO tactic, because such links have high authority and searchers also consider such listings credible.
Ensure that your SEO is Technically Sound
All your SEO efforts for earning money online can be quite meaningless, if there are inherent SEO loopholes in your website? Are all your web pages internally linked? Are there any broken links? Is your page loading too slow? Do you have many images? (Google bots can’t read images, only text). Such factors may be inadvertently hurting SEO and reducing your chances to earn money online. Fix them.
People are searching online because they have a specific need to fulfill. They appreciate it if they are able to get the right information quickly so that they can act on it and satisfy their need. And SEO allows you to do exactly that.
