The Dos and Don’ts of SEO Analysis
SEO or search engine optimization helps a website achieve greater rankings and thus greater customer traffic. SEO employs a variety of tools and tactics that modify the website in a way that major search engines rank it higher and thus display it on initial pages when relevant keywords are put in the search bar.
SEO analysis is the technique that helps webmasters decide the aspects that need modification or innovation. It is a process of thorough investigation of even the smallest SEO practice that the website is using to check for its productivity for the website’s search ranking. It is a highly technical practice and has many approaches to go about it.
One approach that may suit one website may prove to be a disaster for another. Therefore, it is necessary that each website be analyzed as a unique one and no thumb rules are established for two websites no matter how similar they seem.
Keeping this in mind, there are few dos and don’ts of SEO analysis that must work as the guidelines whenever a new analysis is run for any website.
The rule that must always gain preference for a website analysis is that its search engine optimization is checked regularly. Webmasters make changes in their websites everyday and if you are not running regular checks on your website, a lot of mistakes can go undetected. For example, if a website linked to your website has gone irrelevant, you must break that link immediately to repel any unwanted traffic.
You should also check for new links every day. There may be new websites linking to yours every day which you can miss by not running regular checks. A little time spent on daily analysis can help you ward off such errors.
Another aspect of SEO analysis that takes center stage is content of the website. Whether that content is in the form of written word, or an image, it must be original, relevant, and updated. Fresh content should also be added regularly to keep the website updated. It also helps maintain and improve the search ranking.
On the subject of content for the website, you must always keep in mind that the keywords you use for your content should be most relevant and must be the ones that are frequently used by the visitors. This can be done with the help of different tools that let business know what keywords and phrases their potential customers are frequently using. This information must be used by the content department to create content that uses those keywords smartly.
However, the content must not be stuffed with the keywords and should have a natural and informative flow. Indulging in this practice can backfire and the search engine may block your content or website from their listings. The same goes for linking on websites that promote spam, so steer clear.
We hope these few simple steps help you analyze your website’s SEO more efficiently and enable Google and other big guns in the search engine world know your site a little better.
