You may be surprised to learn that there are some incredibly easy-to-understand SEO strategies that practically anyone can employ to boost their site’s ranking. We’ll share a few in this issue.
Just to make sure we’re all on the same page, here’s a quick refresher about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
The goal of SEO is to drive qualified lead-generating traffic to your website. The best way to do it is to use keywords and phrases on your site that are ones you would expect to use when searching for a product like yours. The SEO rankings are calculated by a constantly changing Google algorithm
The Importance of Content
If you’re blogging for your site, you’re already on the right track. If you’re not, get to it!
The folks at Hubspot recently shared research findings showing that businesses with 16 or more blogs per month received over three-times more traffic those that published 0-4. If 16 is out of the question for your business, start smaller and aim for 2-3 each week.
The length of your content is also very important. Editors at serpIQ recently carried out research that showed search engine results with less than 400 words will cause your results to rank lower and lower.

We published a crash course of sorts related to keywords recently. Basically, keywords are the phrases and words Internet users type into a search engine like Google that then directs the user to certain sites using those keywords.
