5 Smart Ways to Boost Your SEO Rankings

Want to see your website rank higher than ever before? If so, you need to take time to increase your SEO efforts. Simply writing a great post or keyword stuffing your site is simply not enough. It is important to look at all opportunities to make your site more search engine friendly.

Here are five smart ways to achieve better success in your SEO efforts.

  1.  Never Use the Words “Click Here”
    Using keyword-rich content is arguable the best way to boost your SEO rankings. When it comes to links, the word “Click Here” or “Visit Here” has little impact on helping that cause. For the biggest impact use link specifics when writing your verbiage.
  2. Use a Good Mix of Different Types of Media
    Multimedia is where it\’s at when it comes to boosting the effectiveness of your site. People engage more frequently with sites that have a good mix of video and content. If you want your visitors to spend more time on your site harness the power of video.
  3. Don\’t Put Images Before Your Content
    Having a great title image has become a mainstay in the blogging world. While they may help get your message out there on social media sites, they should never go before the text in your post. You want the actual content to be front and center, ready to shine.
  4. Always Use Alternative Text Descriptions
    Images can be a powerful tool just by themselves. Add some SEO-friendly alternative text descriptions and they become even more helpful. Alt tags help search engines better find your content.
  5. Revisit Outside Links
    Whether it\’s a sponsored post or a link to an interesting piece there are many types of outside articles than can riddle your site with broken links. These links not only frustrate readers but can also hurt your SEO rating. A quick way to remedy the broken link problem is by keeping the content and simply removing the links. This works especially well for older posts.
