- Ranking & Optimization for Mobile Devices –As the numbers of mobile users are increasing these days, the people using internet on mobile phones are also increasing in the same ratio. Now we need to understand that searching anything on a PC or laptop is very much different from searching anything on the mobile phone. Most of the websites are mobile friendly these days. Being mobile-friendly makes a website work well and look good when operated by a mobile phone. You need to know about the fact that due the huge difference in the screen size, it is not the same thing to view a website on the laptop and on a mobile phone. You have to make your website optimized so that it is possible to operate it from a mobile phone. Also, an important thing over here is that usually the content being searched on the mobile phone is very much different from what being searched from a desktop or from a laptop. You need to check the mobile rankings to be on trend. Also, need to check the keyword rankings that are being searched.
- Local Search Ranking & Optimization –Local search ranking are becoming very important day by day. If you want your website to be reachable to the local public, you need to know about the local keywords that are being searched frequently. There could be a huge difference in the keyword rankings of around the globe and that of your local area or region. There may be some keywords that have great rankings in many regions around the world but are not much popular in the region where you are working.
- Do SEO on Your Own –Most of the people find it really very difficult to do SEO task. Although they are not that much, there are many tasks related to the SEO industry like keyword research, competitor analysis, rankings, and traffic and conversion trends. Many people think them as the most time consuming and scary things to do. Well, the people who think this way maybe are unaware of the tools. There are a huge variety of tools available for doing search engine optimization. You just need to understand what tools you need as per your requirements. Also, there are multiple tool packages available for the same platform, and that can make your job really very quick, efficient and more sophisticated. These tools are so simple to work with that your level of expertise and the experience that you have really don’t matter much.
- Use Keyword Grouper –Keyword grouping as the same suggests is a technique where you can group the keywords together. You need to make one thing in your mind before grouping keywords that the keywords should be relatable. The same kind of keywords or the keywords having kind of the same meaning can be put together to make a keyword group. Let’s take an example – let there are two keywords, the first one is “Best travel packages” and the second one is “Place to travel in 2018”. Now you need to know that either of the two keywords mentioned above is relatable or not? If yes, then can we bring them up together to form a keyword group? Can we put them together on a page? Is the keyword rankings for these two keywords are somewhat same? If all your answers are yes, then just go for it. But doing all this manually takes a really long time. You can use tools to support you in doing such kind of work.
