32 SEO Tips For Your Business Success:

When I first started my business, SEO was a foreign concept to me. However, with research and learning what it takes, the following 32 SEO Tips For Your Business Success can boost traffic and search engine rankings. Check them out below:

1. Under construction

It is important to make sure your site is NOT under construction, incomplete and/or with little or no unique content. In order for SEO to work, a well-established site needs to be ready.

2. Website/blog

When your website/blog is ready, submit it to Google, Yahoo, MSN, and ASK.com. Also, submit your site to reputable high PR web directories, open directories, yellow pages and social bookmarking sites such as StumpleUpon, Digg, etc.

3. Sitemap

Offer sitemap to your site visitors for easy page navigation.

4. Search engines

Submit your sitemap to Google, Yahoo, MSN, and ASK.com.

5. Content

Create unique and rich content sites. Offer value and helpful information with appropriate keywords.

6. Keywords

Check your keywords and make sure they are relevant and actually are contained in your site. Avoid keyword stuffing.

7. Images

Use alt tags on images that are in your content. Provide a description that compliments your sites subject matter.

8. Titles

Make your TITLE and ALT tags descriptive, simple and keyword rich. Avoid irrelevant and repeated keywords.

9. Title tag

The title tag should be 60-80 characters maximum in length.

10. Meta tag

The meta tag description should be 160-180 characters including spaces (about 25-30 words).

11. Meta tag keywords

The meta tag keywords must be 15-20 words maximum.

12. Headings

Optimize pages with Headings (for example, H1, H2, H3) containing your site’s primary keywords throughout your article.

13. CSS/HTML

Validate your CSS and HTML. Check for errors and broken links and fix these as soon as possible.

14. Plugins

Check out the following plugins: SEO smart links, SEO friendly images, SEO title tags and Yoast SEO. Pick and choose which of these plugins will work best for your site.

15. Links

Maximum links per page must be fewer than 100. Avoid the risk of being flagged as link farm by search engines.

16. Check your site’s traffic

Use sites like SimiliarWeb, Alexa and Google Analytics to check your website traffic.

17. Crawl your site

Allow search bots (good ones) to crawl your sites without session IDs or arguments that track their path through the site. Using these techniques may result in incomplete indexing of your site.

18. Web server/host

Check your web server/host if it supports the If-Modified-Since HTTP header. It tells search engines whether your content has changed since last crawled your site. It will save you bandwidth, resources and avoid server overload.

19. Robots

Use Robots.txt file to manage and control search engine spiders in indexing your site. You can allow and disallow spiders and choose directories you want to be crawled and indexed. But with bad bots or spam bots, you need to modify your HTACCESS file to properly and effectively manage bots or spiders.
