5 Simple Things You Can Do Today to Improve Your Website’s SEO
Welcome to episode 189 of The Determined Mom Show. Today we’re gonna talk about 5 simple things that you can do today to improve your website’s SEO. So you don’t have to wait. It doesn’t have to be something that you put off. These are things that you can start doing today and have done maybe even by the end of the week, depending on how many.
Pages you have on your website and all of those things. So the first thing that you can do is submit a site map. To Google Search Console. If you have not done that, go back and listen to episode 179 where I walk you through how to tell if you have one and how to tell if you submitted it.
And I actually also tell you how you submit it. So that is one of the first things that you wanna do because Google needs to know that your website is there. It needs to know what is on your website and what content and what search terms it should be ranking you.
Number two is making sure you have Google Analytics installed because you need that baseline. You need to know where you’re starting from at any given moment, especially for an SEO campaign, you need to know how many people are going to your website beforehand.
So in order to do that, you need to be able to track those visitors and track what they’re doing, track where they came from, track if they came from your Pinterest or your Facebook or your LinkedIn, or any of them.
Platforms that you’re really dedicating a lot of time to, you wanna make sure that’s working. If it’s not working, if it’s not driving traffic, then you can cut it off. But you won’t know any of that unless you install analytics. So that’s number two.
Number three is your headline. So any time you have a headline on your website, you want to make sure. It is marked as an H1 tag. And what an H one tag is it’s a heading tag, and that just tells Google that this is what the main topic of this website page is about. Not only will the name of the page tell them, But the heading should also tell them exactly what this website is about, and it should be a search term.
If you are interested in getting the correct people to visit your website, that is the best way to do it. So you’re gonna wanna go through your website today, make sure that all of your headings are H1, and then any subheadings can be H2, any major subheadings, and then. Sub subheadings can be H3.
You don’t wanna have more than one H1 heading tag on a website. You wanna have no more than a couple of H2 and then H3 and H4 can be. However many, you don’t wanna use them for everything. The next thing is the meta description. So you wanna make sure that you have your meta descriptions filled out and optimized?
And what a meta description is it allows you to take the snippet that Google displays and tell Google exactly what you would like to say. It’s not guaranteed that Google will use it. But it gives them a better idea of what your content is actually about than just pulling some random content and displaying it on the search results.
It gives you more control and it gives Google more information about who your website should be displayed to. The next thing you’re gonna do is check for broken links, number five. You can easily do this by doing a quick SEO audit of your website, and if you want to do that, you can also go to our website and get that free audit.
