Unless you know someone who has amazing analytical skills combined with a knack for writing stellar content, SEO can be frustrating because seeing the results is a slow process. Let’s face it, it takes a long time to put up a good website, and even longer to begin to gain traction with your search engine efforts. Fortunately, there are shortcuts, and if you try at least two of them, you’ll see results – fast.
Make your landing page a priority
Your landing page is the first place people go to find out more about your company. Besides being well written, keyword rich, and free of clutter and broken links, it should, above all, be fast. Test your site on different browsers to see how quickly, or not, it loads. Statistics have shown that page fails to load within 5 seconds, 74 percent of people will leave.
Don’t forget the details
When writing SEO rich content for a website, it’s important to have all the keywords, but more important to make sure that they don’t get overlooked by the search engines. You have to go beyond the text on the page, and make sure you fill out the text behind the scenes; the name of the piece, the meta – description, and the alt tag. This is what the search engines are looking for, and will allow the content to rank for different keywords and terms.
Don’t be afraid to get personal
Google is the search engine everyone wants to optimize for, so it’s a good idea to take advantage of a geographical location specific listing called Google My Business. Go online to sign up, Google will send you a personal code, go online to the address given and enter this code and now you’re in! It’s just another layer of Google recognizing you’re business, and by default, your nicely SEO’d website.
Take it slow
Now that you’ve taken care of the fast stuff, the real work begins! One of the best ways to get your SEO really robust is through links, and you want to make sure these links have meat behind them. This is where you identify a small group of companies with whom you want to build lasting relationships, and approach them directly. Find the real email address, or phone number of the person you want to contact and build a rapport. Your shared links are going to be much more robust when you build this personal rapport, because you’re both working towards a common goal.
Don’t be afraid of Google Adwords

Besides giving you great tips on how to write your content to be more SEO friendly, it’s also a great tool for finding a list of blogs and news outlets who are already talking about your niche.
