We get alot of questions from potential clients who would like to engage an SEO agency to help their company with their search ranking.
So, proper SEO boils down to the quality of your content you have on your website, and whether your content is what people are searching for online.
You may have heard alot about starting your own blog, writing your own content, and basically you will be searched online.
Well, that is true to a certain extent, if the fundamentals are in place.
So what are the fundamentals you may ask. For example, our company is called "Sky Digital Agency", and we first buy a domain name, you probably think to yourself, why is my website not showing up on the first 3 pages of google?
Here are 5 things you need in place:
1. You need to have a website uploaded, preferably more than a 1 page website. Start with 5 pages of content if you can.
2. Grab the 5 unique url of the pages, hopefully you have it properly coded with clean url formats.
Bad URL format: www.skydigitalagency.com/pageid=3?blog
Good URL format: www.skydigitalagency.com/blog/how-to-have-clean-url-formats
3. Submit your page URLs to Google and Yahoo - well, it is not difficult to do the url submissions, so do include yahoo if you can, though 67% of search are done on google.in a research done in 2014.
4. Make sure your navigation describes what you do. i.e. Expertise, F&B Case Study, etc.
Be as specific and descriptive as you can, so that your navigation and website architecture helps you to be search.
Make sure your navigations add to your clean format URLs when users click on them.
5. Mobile friendly website. If you do not have a mobile friendly website, you will be ranked lower when a search is done on mobile.
6. Install Google Analytics to your website. This helps you analyze your website visitors, and helps you to find out if you're making the right changes to get searched online.
7. The more content you have the better, as you want people to stay on your website for a longer period of time, and this is only possible with content that people are searching for.
There are so many more things you can do to improve your SEO ranking.
