1. On-Page SEO in Cirencester

It’s highly important that your website is optimised on a page by page basis. On-page Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) can sometimes cover parts of Technical SEO – a good starting point is to ensure that each page on your website is structured well. Think about the hierarchy of pages.

After your site is structured correctly, and you’ve made sure to neither over or under optimise your website, you should consider the following points:

Keyword Research

This is the language your target audience speaks in; what keywords are users actively searching for? What intent is behind these keywords? Are users looking for additional information on how to do something (complete ‘x’ task) or are they looking to purchase a product or service (reviews for ‘x’ product may be helpful to them).

URL Description

Are your page URLs short and describe what content can be found on the page?

Meta Description

This meta description should be created to convince a user to select your site instead of a competitor site. This is an opportunity to present your business to users before they click through to your website.

Keyword Density + Content Optimisation

This can vary for each niche. Keyword density is the number of times your keywords are mentioned within your webpage. It is Important to not only think about how many times each keyword is being used, but in which part of the content, the font size, and the formatting.

User Experience

Does your website provide a great user experience by functioning correctly on mobile devices? Does it load quickly? Are users having a positive experience when browsing or do they click away when they’re faced with interface problems. A good experience will mean that they are likely to return to your site or recommend it to someone else.

Page Title

Your page title should describe the content on your page clearly and naturally include your main keywords.

Conversion Rate Optimisation + Calls-To-Action

Ensure user actions visitors take when on your site are easy, self-explanatory and fast, this covers completing a web form, contacting you via telephone or purchasing a product or service online.

Structured Data Markup

Are you using the most up to date and relevant markup languages for your website? Try to take advantage of additional SERP features which will help you improve your click-through-rate (CTR).

2. Off-site SEO in Cirencester

No matter how you look at it, the best on-page optimisation, great content and a website that loads extremely quickly isn’t enough. You will require powerful links to your website. This will help you develop a reliable organic ranking and allow you to benefit from search engine traffic.

The challenge most people face when building links is; what’s the best way to go about it correctly. It can be a complicated topic because each area needs to be considered very carefully.

High quality links are far more important than quantity of links. Relevant links are key. There’s no need to obtain a link from a website if it’s not relevant, as this could hinder your ability to rank.

Creating great content will make it easier for you to gain links from other sites, as they will want to link to your content. This isn’t always easy. It can be especially challenging if you’re offering a niche product or service, but it can be done.

To summarise, the links you build need to make sense. If you’re a private tutor and you obtain a link from a website that sells muscle enhancing products, this won’t correlate well. However, if you are a private tutor and you obtain a link from an education-based website, this is directly relevant to the service your business provides.

Do the sites that link to you ensure you deserve to rank for the specific keyword you’re targeting? Make sure your website is worthy by implementing all of the above.

3. Technical SEO in Cirencester

Technical SEO doesn’t have to be difficult. We need to ensure that a search engine is able to view your content and explore your website in an efficient manner. If you’re having technical issues with your site, this will affect your ability to rank within the search engine results page (SERP) in a negative way.

There are some key areas you need to consider when using technical SEO to rank:

Crawl Rate

Are search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) able to explore your site both quickly and efficiently?

Pages in the Index

Are you correctly indicating to the search engine which pages should and shouldn’t be indexed in the search engine results page (SERP)?

Mobile First Index

Does your website load quickly for 4G mobile users and is it optimised correctly for mobile use?

Technology

Make sure you’re using the right Content Management System (CMS) that meets your needs. Does your website use technology that is search engine friendly?

Page Hierarchy

Think about your page hierarchy. Does your site follow best practice through structuring pages correctly? This will enable Googlebot to crawl and index each page efficiently.

If your Cirencester based business site has a small number of pages, carrying out a technical SEO audit will be done relatively quickly. If you have a larger website, a professional technical SEO audit is highly recommended.

The technical audit is largely addressed when your website is being built. if your current or previous web developer is unaware of the most up to date best practises when focusing on SEO, this could negatively impact your ability to rank highly within search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.
