There is a possibility that you must have heard about all these pointers before, but if you can get these pointers right, you will always be sorted.

Do stay with me till the bonus point in the end.

1️⃣ Understanding the search perspective of the audience:

Your audience’s perspective will help you create appropriate and relevant content for them.

👉Ask questions directly to them.
👉Check their dwell time
👉Find through surveys and their reports

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
2️⃣ Targeting the right keyword:

We need to target the keywords that our audience is going to search for.

👉Use SERP tools to target keywords that top-ranking sites are already using.
👉Think like a customer
👉Understand the long-tail keyword

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
3️⃣ Adding a human touch to your content:

Your audience will only come back if they feel connected with your content.

👉It can be generated through personal experiences.
👉By adding your perspectives.
👉By a conversational & friendly tone.

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM Image
4️⃣ Earning high-quality backlink:

This would help in building credibility & will assure the quality of your content.

Some ways to earn it are:
👉Write guest posts
👉Outreach & promote
👉Analyse competitor’s backlinks and try to replicate

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
5️⃣ Using relevant images:

Adding some graphics always helps in grabbing their attention and keeping them engaged.

👉The images shouldn’t take a long time to load.
👉Prevent yourself from copyright claims
👉Customize image file names

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
6️⃣ Doing competitor research from time to time:

Staying aware of our competitor’s actions will keep you aware of your audience’s needs and new trends.

👉Find both their strengths and weaknesses
👉Read their content to be different
👉Study backlinks

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
7️⃣ Optimizing the page for mobile:

A lot of users prefer browsing websites through phones & we need to optimize our page accordingly.

👉Keep the design simple
👉Make it more responsive
👉Make fonts and buttons big enough to read

#SEOThread @DigitalRahulM
8️⃣ Optimizing the heading tags:

Use attractive & engaging headline which triggers your audience’s pain points.

👉Break the headings into subheadings to make it interesting
👉Make it short and crisp
👉Do add important keywords to it
9️⃣ Update & Prune Content:

As a part of content workflow, I have always relied on GSC data to optimize 30-45 days after hitting publish.

This does two things:

👉We can optimize better.
👉If we don't get enough impressions, we can prune the content

4 Ways to Determine Backlink Quality:

Having dealt with countless DMs trying to sell me #backlinks, I can now say:

All backlinks aren’t made equal.

As with many things in #SEO

Quality > quantity

#SEOthread @adrianakstein
So what actually makes a quality backlink? Here are a few methods for determining this:

#SEOthread @adrianakstein
Method 1: Avoid Paid Backlinks

I want to make it absolutely clear that you should NEVER buy backlinks!

If someone is offering that to you, RUN for the hills!

Not to mention that it’s actually against Google guidelines.

You've identified a promising keyword.

Now what? 🤷🏾‍♀️

Whether you'll tackle the content yourself or pass the torch to a writer, an SEO content brief will come in handy.

How? And what should it include beyond keywords?

The answers lie in this #SEOThread by yours truly.

Some briefs have short, unhelpful descriptions. E.g.
"for design teams."

Others reuse broad descriptions for every piece, resulting in too-broad content.

Specify the audience segment each piece is for and what they need from it.

True, the traditional customer journey is getting rarer. But give an approximation of the stage the top audience segment is at.

It can dramatically affect how a piece is written and whether or not it satisfies the audience.
