SEO - Search Engine Optimisation - The Basics


Google SEO

Ensure you do the following to get better rankings in the search engines:

· Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines. Don't deceive your users or present different content to search engines than you display to users, a practice commonly referred to as "cloaking."

· Make a site with a clear hierarchy and text links. Every page should be reachable from at least one static text link.

· Create a useful, information-rich site, and write pages that clearly and accurately describe your content. Make sure that your <title> elements and ALT attributes are descriptive and accurate.

· Use keywords to create descriptive, human-friendly URLs.

· Meta Description - a descriptive snippet of your site to users in search results

· Page Titles – use keywords here

· Link to high value web sites

· Create and submit a sitemap, to help search engines crawl your site https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

· Ensure you have a privacy/cookie policy on site
