You could be doing better on Google rankings. Google rankings are how your business is discovered by your customers and clients. Here are 5 common Orlando SEO mistakes that you can resolve today!
You may not be aware of this, but your website speed can affect your Orlando SEO rankings.
First off, if your site is too slow, people will drop off. The average person will only wait about 2 seconds for your site to load before exiting in frustration. Don’t lose valuable clients with a slow site, and don’t lose out on ranking on Google because your site needs to be faster.
Before uploading an article, you have to make sure that your keyword is in the URL. This is one thing that many people tend to forget when posting a blog, or a page on their site. You can change the URL.
Ensuring that you add the keyword to your URL is another way of making sure you are doing all you can to rank and rank high!
If you’re updating your site, or web content and happen to change the URL, make sure you redirect the broken link to the new link. For WordPress, this is an easy redirection using a simple 301 Redirect tool that you can add to the backend of your site. Here’s what it looks like below:
You enter in the old URL into the redirection plugin, then enter the new URL, and whenever anyone enters the old URL, it will automatically send people to the correct URL and page.
This will also prevent your SEO from getting messed up by breaking a link and losing the clout you’ve created already with your keyword for that page.
Adding a picture to your page looks great, but it won’t mean anything to Google or your ranking if you don’t add the keyword to your picture’s Alt_Text. Adding the keyword to the Alt_Text of the picture will enable it to be read by Google; this will help your SEO.
Write at Least 300 Words
Another common Orlando SEO mistake is not writing at least 300 words per blog. You want to write enough content. If you don’t write enough content, Google may think you are keyword stuffing, which is a fancy way of saying you’re just trying to cheat the system and don’t have valuable content for people to read.
Make sure you write enough and that it is good content that is related to your keyword.
