If you want to get the most people viewing your website content, then it’s important that you optimize your content for SEO. This means writing your web pages with content optimized for search engine crawlers and including keywords in the text so that people searching online can find them.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss different techniques to optimize your webpage content that will help improve both your conversion rates and SEO rankings.
What is Content Optimization?
Content optimization is the process of making sure content reaches its target audience. When it comes to providing information, the goal is always for your content (text) to be as interesting and engaging as possible. The process will include using keywords, meta and title tags, and links that are relevant for your target audience so they can find you easier on Google search results pages.
1. Focus each page around one primary keyword
Each page on your website should have its content focused around one main keyword (or phrase) that best describes the page’s purpose. This helps search engines like Google to understand what relevance it has to someone who’s searching based on those terms. To figure out which keywords are important, think about how someone might search for your content, and what words they would type to find the information.
Use keywords throughout your content. Be sure they are related to what’s being discussed on the page. Best practice is to include the main keyword for the page in the URL, the page title, and in some of the headings. Don’t include your keywords in an unnatural way, it will make readers feel like they are just encountering keyword spam instead of actual content.
2. Use meta descriptions to sell your page
Create an interesting description of what the page is about. This is your page’s meta description and should be between 120-160 characters in length. This is the first piece of your content visitors will see from a search engine so make it is enticing.
The goal here is to show readers what they are going to find on the page.
3. Link out to authority sites
Link out to other relevant pages. Treat links to other sites like citations where visitors can go for more information. You should link to other pages on your site that cover similar topics, but also link to other websites that are related.
Link out to authority sites whenever possible. Lately, there have been more articles and research suggesting that links from other authoritative websites may carry a little bit of weight on your website rankings in the SERPs (search engine results pages).
4. Use a relevant call to action
Make sure that your content contains a relevant call-to-action (CTA) at the end of it which can help turn blog readers into customers and paying subscribers by prompting them with an offer they might not want to miss out on like: “Contact us today for your free quote” or “Subscribe now before this promotion expires.“
