    Great article! From working a small business I have seen how important SEO optimization is. There are many companies who offer services to help businesses with SEO. Do you believe paying for these services is a good idea, or with the tips outlined in this article can SEO be utilized from anyone who is willing to learn ? How much is paying too much for someone else to help your SEO?

      Hi Melissa.

      Thanks for giving it a read. Ultimately it becomes a value trade off. If search can be or is a big part of your business’ revenue stream then it’s important to tread carefully with SEO. Over the past few years there have been a number of small to enterprise sized business’ being cut down by algorithm updates and penalties for doing the wrong thing.

      Thanks for taking the time out to give it a read Richard.

      While link building can get difficult, those 8 or 9 questions are really low hanging fruit waiting to be taken. It’s important not to over complicate links.

    Good tips and nice that you have some pro tips at the end! One thing that people should consider is revisit their existing posts. It’s great putting what you mention above in to practice for new posts but there’s also improvement that can be made to existing posts.

    View Google analytics and see which posts are getting traffic for relevant keywords and then optimise these posts more using the excellent tips above.

    Ian.

      Hi Ian, thanks for the kind words.

      My post didn’t just apply to new posts. It applied to the website as a whole. You’re right when prioritising which pages to work on, start with your highest traffic pages.

    I really like your tips! I think the biggest tip that you failed to mention is to provide good content! As long as you give readers good content, Google will find you and your information WILL get shared. It’s pretty basic. According to TheBoomWorks, “Basically, if you’re producing amazing content, whether you’re making videos, articles, podcasts, or something similar, you’ll be found by Google because your content is being shared. If you’re consistently thinking, ‘what will my visitors / readers / listeners / viewers enjoy?’ and then producing it, then you have nothing to fear.”
