Experimenting with SEO


Recommended Posts

Successful SEO strategies depend on many factors and are usually the product of a lot of time spent on market research, competitor analysis, and social trends. Once this work is done, search engine algorithms will still need to crawl your site and determine its rankings. It’s a long, steady process that requires trial and error, and lots of patience. What happens if your main strategy doesn’t work how you expect? In this case, do what the pros do: experiment!

According to the SEO and marketing blog, Search Metrics, SEO experiments will help you answer the question, “will this tactic work for my business?” Here’s a few of their recommendations on experiments you can try:

  • A/B Tests
  • Font, color, and CTA (call to action) changes
  • Tweaking your website copy and metadata
  • Targeting search keywords with low search volume

The site Semrush also has some innovative SEO experiments you can check out. 

How did you get your SEO strategy in shape? Share your insights and experiments in the comments below!

Remember this important fact: Everyone is doing the same optimisation, everyone has the best content, everyone is targeting the low-volume keywords, and everyone is using the same data pulls to get the traffic opportunities

How then do you make your business stand out from the rest?

My advice is to look broader than search.

I always try to make articles with interesting topics. People tend to click and share them more, which is great for SEO. Also, those types of topics are more fun to make too 🙂 

Keyword research is always a good idea to do too (I use Keywords Everywhere).

The first step is to create a SEO strategy.

This includes:

  • keyword research
  • content creation
  • link building strategy

Of course, the on-page SEO optimization is required.

This includes:

  • meta tags
  • structured data
  • xml sitemap

That's what I'm saying! The only thing I have to add is, that I can only recommend to you guys, to make also analysis of your best contrahents: 

For example, "On which sites did they already build backlinks?"  "Is the domain good?" "Did I already build  there backlinks or still not?"

best regards,

I have done this, hired a person to do the SEO optimization and still can't "search" my yoga studio, by "YOGA studio in Ellijay GA "

risingsunyoga.life

 

What do I do now???????

There is a lot that goes into SEO, more than just adding 'Best Ellijay, GA Yoga' to all your title tags.

Just a few things I saw as I quickly scanned your website 

  • At least 4 pages on your site have the same <title> tag, including some type of variation of 'Best Ellijay, GA Yoga'
    • They are all basically competing for the same search term.
  • You are linking to a lot of external websites.
  • Just on the home page you have 3 <h1> tags.
    • Make space for yourself
    •  Yoga & meditation that is passionate about helping you keep moving. 
      Stay grounded on the go! 
    • Experience…
  • I didn't find a Google Business Profile. This is essential for local search.
  • Images don't seem to be optimized. Meaning their file sizes are very large.

Not sure what the person you hired actually did for SEO, but there really is none on your website.

There are a lot of guides and resources out there in case you want to DIY this.

One of the most overlooked SEO items I see, especially with new sites, is submitting site's for crawl to Google Search Console & Bing Webmaster Tools. It's the simplest way to ensure that all your pages are being seen by search engines. Launching a new page? Just request a crawl and ensure it's being noticed as new content.
