In-Depth Analysis

If you’re just starting out with your SEO you need to know where you’re beginning and an in-depth analysis allows you to paint that initial picture. To do an in-depth analysis there are 5 steps you should look at completing:

Step 1) Complete Website Analysis Report

Step 2) Keywords Research and Analysis

Step 3) Website Speed Analysis and Solution Report

Step 4) Initial rankings & Link Popularity Report

Step 5) Competitor’s Website Report

These steps help you to understand what areas need work and where you are starting from. Being able to get this information allows you to know where you’ve come from, what needs to be done to improve and, eventually, show you how you’ve improved.

On-Page Techniques

Once you’ve looked at your in-depth analysis you can then begin to apply on-page techniques to advance your SEO. These techniques create greater SEO ratings for each page within your website. There are several ways in which you can enhance your on-page SEO and here are a few we regularly use:

Off-Page Techniques

Last but not least in this quick guide to SEO, you should look into your off-page techniques. These techniques are designed to build external links. Backlinks are great ways to build your google rankings – they are when one website links to another, which Google looks at as ‘votes’. The more links you have the higher you will rank, as you are deemed more trustworthy by an external source (another website). Off-pgae techniques are often overlooked as secondary to on-page, but without these necessary external links your website won’t stand out in Google rankings. To build your off-page SEO we use these techniques:

  • Search Engine Submission
  • Social Bookmark Submission
  • Press Release Writing and Submission
  • Web 2.0 Links Creation
  • Classified Ads Submission
  • Blog Writing & Creation (Posting)
  • Quora and Yahoo answers
  • PPT Creation and Submission
  • Local Business Directory Listing
  • Interlinking of Blogs & Approved Links
  • Video Submissions (If Videos Available)
  • Image Promotion
