Your website at the top of search results
SEO stands for Search engine optimization, or search engine optimization, SEO makes it easier for you to be found in Google's search results. SEO can drive "free" traffic to your website, so it is definitely important to pay adequate attention to it.
Google Search Results
Want to rank higher in Google's search results? Then you can do this by optimizing your website. Specifically, this means improving On-page & Off-page SEO, Local SEO, Website performance and technical SEO. There are all kinds of optimizations you can apply to your website or webshop to rank higher organically in search engines such as Google and Bing.
75% only visit the first page of Google results. That's why SEO is so important. If your business is not on the first page, you are missing out on a lot of potential customers, organic traffic and sales.
SEO takes time. You can't expect to rank at the top of Google overnight. You have to earn your place at the top. That's why we more often see long-term results. To rank and stay at the top, you will have to constantly work on your website or webshop, both technically and in terms of content. Digitong can help you with that.
Content is king
Good content on your website is vital, not just what you want to say but how you say it. Of course, "quality" is somewhat subjective. You may have heard many times that your message should be short and sweet. Google thinks the same way. Google determines the quality of content using complex algorithms. What Google looks for are texts that are strong in content and answer your target audience's questions concretely. Therefore, always write engaging content that interests your target audience, never write content for Google.
We just said that text should be short and sweet, but too little text on your web page is not good. If your content is not long enough, then Google is more likely to misunderstand the page. Which in turn will cause you to rank lower on Google. We recommend aiming for at least 1,000 words for standard blog posts, 2,000 for long-form content, and 300-500 for news articles or product pages. Therefore, keyword research is hugely important to get to at least 1,0000 words in a blog. Yoast (an SEO WordPress plugin) confirmed that longer text helps Google understand your content better.
A keyword research or keyword research is the first step for a successful SEO and SEA strategy. With this research, we find out what keywords people use when they search a search engine for certain products and services. This way you know what words your target audience uses and what questions they have. A keyword research makes it clear exactly what topics you need to write about. Once the most relevant keywords have been determined, it is important that they appear sufficiently in your web texts. Does this mean that you should just use the keywords as much as possible on your web page? No, Google will actually penalize this by ranking your website lower. A good way to make your keywords stand out more is to put them in headers and titles.
Web page structure
It is essential that web texts are easy to read and clear. Titles and intertitles with relevant keywords in them can help with this. Titles not only attract readers' attention, they also let search engines know what they should give the most importance to. Therefore, place your most important keywords in your titles. Our SEO specialists will first do a keyword research to find the right keywords for each web page. Then our SEO specialists make sure there is a good mix of head, mid and long tail keywords in your headers and titles.
Obviously, your website needs to be relevant not only to your visitors, but also to the search engines. Therefore, there are several techniques you can combine that will benefit your content as well as your SEO. Technical SEO is therefore also important to rank even better with Google.
