HOW TO ENGAGE IN SEO FOR A SMALL WEBSITE

The major issue most start up website owners contend with is whether or not to engage in “SEO”, most small website owners will tell you why should I spend my hard earned money on a website that is not yet generating revenue? According to Neil Patel, most small website owners will say: 

“MY WEBSITE IS TOO TINY FOR SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION".

Yes, I understand why you feel this way because so many starters felt same way before they became webmasters and influencers today. The more reason you should spend time and resources on SEO are because you have little or no site visitors.

Optimizing your site makes it more searchable and visible to search engines. If you don’t do SEO, it may be very difficult to get visitors to your site.
Engaging in SEO doesn’t really mean you would spend money; rather it is just a way to market your website and make it more presentable.

For a small website like yours it is understood that burning some Naira on adverts may not be possible. If this is not possible, then you should actively engage in SEO.
But while trying to do SEO you must be patient as you may not see the immediate upshot in traffic, but you sure will see the effect in time to come.

Its better you engage in SEO instead of paid campaign for PPC. This is because traffic from SEO is more authoritative than PPC. When you have organic visitors on your site it fosters engage and reduced bounce rate. PPC simply means you are just paying for the visitor’s click and not solving his problem, in this case the user may not return.

I can authoritatively tell you SEO is important for every website as this will drive the desired traffic you need to your website. So my advice to you is get engaged in search engine optimization.

SIMPLE WAYS TO ENGAGE IN CONTENT STRATEGY

ð  Know what you are passionate about and figure it out
ð  Now, write richly about it.
If you have done this, you are good to go!!
Don’t just jump into the normal keyword research and write on trending keywords, if you do this you are restricting your content to a selected few.
Focus on the larger crowd and determine the proportionality of what you are giving out and what people are searching for (what they want to receive).

If for instance you are writing on technology, you need not to be told that people’s search query will focus on these:

ð  How to get fix my android device that fell into water

ð  How to update my android device

ð  How to install windows update

ð  How to format my android device. Etc

You can also research a topic extensively before writing extensively on it, remember content is everything.
Go to online reviews site and forums and take a look at reviews, those are people’s problems being vented out, both positive and negative. Focus on what they need from their reviews.
Remember your content must be unique, long, exhaustive and authoritative if you want to gain people’s trust. You must produce deep articles if you want to gain the attention of users and move to top of your niche.
