Main Tips to help your SEO

Nail your SEO

SEO or Search Engine Optimization is an essential to ensure your website is found by users through a search for your service or product. Here’s Blue Juice Design’s top tips to nail your SEO.

If you’re using WordPress for your website, then you need to ensure that it’s optimized for search engines. The best plugins for SEO are Rank Math or Yoast SEO. Here are some tips to get started:

  • For each page on your site, set up the title tag with the main keyword that aligns with your page. This is the main text that appears in Google, so getting it right is crucial.
  • Fill in the meta description, which is the text that runs under the title tag in Google results. Keep it between 150 and 160 characters and include keywords that align with your page and what people might search for.
  • Naming your images is important, as Google reads those in the code. Use words that relate to the page and topic, and keep the image names to 5 words or less. For example, if the page is about ice cream, the image name should be “chocolate-ice-cream.jpg” instead of “image2.jpg”.
  • Use Rank Math to set the ALT text of what the image is. This helps with Google SEO and you can get traffic from Google Images.

These are the main tips that you should focus on, but if you use either of the two plugins mentioned above, they do a great job of taking you through the steps that need to happen. Make sure to carefully go through the initial set-up process after installing the plugin. Happy optimizing!
