So optimize SEO in 2023!
Improve title tags rewritten by Google
Numerous studies show that Google rewrites between 60% and 80% of a website’s title, which can be frustrating if you don’t try to figure out what’s wrong. So ask yourself why Google thinks it’s appropriate to rewrite your title: is it relevant to your site’s theme? Are you using the right keywords? Are you using enough characters? Take stock of your most important pages in order to adjust your strategy. And then, train regularly! This training “The fundamentals of natural referencing” will allow you to discover the techniques of optimization of natural referencing.
Integrate FAQs into sites
To optimize the natural referencing of your site, include the questions most frequently asked by visitors at the top of the page. Real work must therefore be done on the keywords to target. Help yourself to Google Search Console to get a list of the keywords that drive the most traffic to your website. And don’t forget that an FAQ should first and foremost provide answers to questions that appear most often in Google searches related to the targeted keyword. These answers must therefore be sufficiently clear, precise and understandable to satisfy the greatest number of Internet users.
Optimize internal links
Your site does not have enough good external links? Instead, focus on how best to optimize your internal links. Have you noticed that your website pages have few under-optimized links or anchor texts? To remedy this, perform an internal linking optimization audit to more clearly identify the improvements your site needs.
On high traffic sites, too many redirect links can quickly confuse users. Redesigning and simplifying redirect chains helps boost crawling performance and improves SEO as a result.
Prioritize the user
For me, that’s the base. Always keep your users in mind when creating SEO content. Although this advice may seem very simple, it is easy to forget about your users when trying to follow the many rules that Google has set for SEO. However, remember that Google itself prioritizes users, which means user satisfaction is a key factor in evaluating the quality of a website that can easily lead to conversions.
