SEO tips by Wildeye

There is no doubt that SEO is a science. I like to think of it as a complex organism that changes every day.

HERE ARE SOME HELPFUL TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED:

  • Focus on great content, loaded with relevant keywords and key phrases. Include as much real text on your website as possible. Minimise the use of text images. 

  • Focus on one keyword per page of content. Don’t overload the page with several keywords at once.

  • Make sure you have a good "title tag" on every page of your website. Descriptive words work far better than company names. 

  • Create a "call to action" - convert your traffic to action. Having a million visitors is useless if there is no clear instructions of what to do.

  • Include search phrases rather than search keywords. For example “Melbourne textile design” instead of just “design”.

  • Use image alt tags which help search engines to catalogue your images, resulting in more hits.

  • Search engines value high quality content over high quantity content. Adding new content on a regular basis will boost your search ranking.

  • File extensions do not affect SEO - use .html, .htm, .php or whatever else.

  • Plan your social media campaign. A well executed social media strategy is invaluable to SEO.
