Nowadays, engaging in an effective SEO practice offers one of the best ways for people to easily find your website on search engines.

This is because search engines possess a finely honed ability to determine the quality and relevance of links.

Higher quality one-way links are now required and it’s not just to the website homepage. This means linking to every category and service, the website offers.

You can do this through deep linking (acquiring links to internal pages or your site). Ideally, these links should be placed on relevant content-rich pages in the body content of the page.

However, it’s advisable not to place the link on content-devoid pages. I meant pages that consist solely of lists of links or are used for ‘link exchange’ purposes.

Effective SEO practices

If you want to avoid search engine penalties, it has been shown time after time that the most successful web design and SEO strategies take into account Google Webmaster Guidelines.

Taking this into account, here are some best practice SEO tips to help promote any new website:

#1]. Test website accessibility

Before spending hours optimizing your website content, check that search engines can actually find it. JavaScript Navigation Systems can be inaccessible to search engines, as can links inside Macromedia Flash content.

Search Google for a ‘search engine simulator’ and use one of the free tools to check that all pages on your site are accessible. If not, re-design your website navigation system using text links or CSS drop-down menus.

 

#2]. Cross-browser compatibility

A site that doesn’t work in one or more web browsers will result in lost business as visitors turn away in the hundreds.

Before embarking on SEO, check your website renders properly in all current browser versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome.

#3]. Pages should have unique purpose

It’s important to make sure that pages on your website are individually optimized. No two pages should be optimized for the same keyword.

Also, the site’s structure should have a sensible hierarchy where main services and categories receive links from all website pages in what is called persistent navigation.

Less important pages should be linked from inside these sections or categories rather than in the main website navigation.

#4]. Research Keywords

It is good to spend time doing thorough keyword research and always consider terms potential buyers would use when looking for the products or services you sell.

There are lots of good search tools you can use to search for most popular keywords on search engines.

You can use a tool like the Google Adwords Keyword Tool to check local volumes and competition for keywords and build rich content around these identified terms using unique keywords on each page.

#5]. Write semantic copy

When writing copy consider the fact that search engines now attempt to extract meaning from your content by analyzing the mixture of keywords you have used.

For this reason, a page will achieve higher relevance if it covers a topic from all angles and contains many different complementary keywords relevant to that topic rather than repeating the same phrase time and time again.

Start by assigning a page an H1 heading (the main page heading) and then breaking the topic down into four or five sub-topics each of which should have an H2 or H3 sub-heading.

Each sub-topic will then have its own sub-set of keywords around the main topic. This technique can significantly improve the semantic meaning extracted from any content.

 

#6]. Build website value

Write compelling original content that is in-depth, topical, and relevant. Don’t be tempted to copy content from elsewhere on the web as search engines employ advanced duplicate content detection.

Writing about topics that aren’t extensively available elsewhere will help a lot. However, you should ensure that you provide valuable content to your readers.

Websites with unique content consistently sustain higher readership. Also, they tend to acquire more quality links which in turn lead to higher ranking and readership.

#7]. Use a unique title tag for each page

Each page on your website should have a unique page and Meta Title Tag. Just to clarify, this is the TITLE tag inside the HEAD area of the HTML code.

The Meta Title remains one of the most important aspects of SEO and is one of the top five Google ranking factors even after the latest search engine algorithm changes.

Title tags should be less than 70 characters including spaces and should contain the page’s main target keyword along with a secondary keyword alongside your brand (if needed).

Avoid repeating the same keyword more than once and place the most important keyword at the beginning of the title.

#8]. Unique meta descriptions for each page

The Meta Description Tag now has little overall ranking influence. However, it is still frequently used by the search engines in the search results when listing your site’s pages.

For this reason, it is important. Having unique Meta Description tags can significantly improve click-through and result in more website traffic.

Meta Descriptions should be around 160 characters long. This includes spaces and comprises an accurate description of the page with a compelling reason to visit it.

A few of the main target keywords should be incorporated towards the beginning of the description. The Meta Description can be found inside the HEAD area of a web page.
