Posted by Samantha DeVita on May 31st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

SEOAt R2integrated, we often get a lot of questions on how Google looks at your site, what ranking signals should you or should you not focus/worry about. So, here’s a quick and dirty list to help get you started.

Focus on the reason why people would link to you. Ask the following questions:

  • Why would visitors seek you out in the first place?
  • What valuable content do you have on your site
  • Why would visitors find your site compelling and/or memorable?

Quick Expert Tips:

  • Make sure your content is crawlable & reachable via quality links
  • Create links with good URL structure
  • Create good titles
  • Research the keywords people are using to search and get to your site, then incorporate those keywords into the content on your page
  • Create copy that flows naturally. Read it out loud- let others read it. It should flow naturally and fluidly

All in all…Concentrate on creating a site that is compelling and rewarding for visitors, as this is what Google is looking for when returning results.

  1. "Create copy that flows naturally."

    That's definitely up there on the importance scale. So many site owners want to know what they should do first when it comes to SEO, and even though I think the best approach is to get a little bit of everything going, without great content your SEO is dead is the water.
