Website success tips

As a public speaker, salesperson or job applicant, the chances are high you run a website or blog to create more exposure and make a name for yourself. Consequently, I added this page to help you achieve these goals.

Let's start with the basics. Your site must have a strong title that reveals the main benefit people will reap from visiting you. 

Take advantage of free Google and SEO tools to test the strength of the title and other aspects of your site. 
On your homepage, begin the first paragraph by discussing what your site is about. 
Insert a site map or other feature that has the link to all of your pages at the top of your site. 
Link back to your homepage at the end of your content on all secondary pages. 
If you must insert something such as ads or a PayPal Buy Now button on all of your pages, copy and paste the code you're given into the HTML/Javascript feature in your layout settings. 
Provide free tips regarding your niche if you run a self-help site.
Periodically proofread your site, test your links and make sure everything is eye-pleasing. 
Use subheads, bullets and numbered paragraphs. 

If you have questions about building/maintaining your site, please email me and I'll be happy to assist you. More tips are below.

1. You can please Google and your visitors by putting all of your most important information or tips on the homepage.

Write this information in a list format and number each key point.
Consider naming your site based on how many steps you have. 
Study the websites of your competitors to see what they're doing. 
Use Semrush to learn the competitiveness of keywords regarding your niche.
Subsequently create a title for your site that represents one of the less competitive keywords.   

2. Check the labels you have for each website page in your settings often. 
Labels must be keywords that match the content for that particular page. 
Put most important keywords at the top of your homepage.

3. The more special content you have and the more you build curiosity, the higher your search engine rankings may be, thus persuading others to click on your listing. 

Create cliffhangers on your site to make visitors wonder what's next. 
Most of us learn more easily through visuals; therefore, you should create charts or graphs that contain information or tips on your niche.
Create good visuals for free through Venngage and Canva. 

4. Besides using social media such as Facebook to promote all new posts and increase traffic, be active on niche-related websites. 

After reading articles there, comment on them. 
Next, insert your website link when applicable. 
Use forums that don't explicitly forbid putting your commercial link in your signature. 
Never put your link in the forum posts, messages or topic replies you write.

5. Are you struggling to consistently see your Google Analytics statistics for your websites/blogs?  Solve this problem by checking off the Google Analytics Web Property ID box in the preferences section of your settings, especially if you use Blogger.

6. Reaching out to your top competitors to get a reciprocal link to your site might be useful for you. You can give this a try through blogsearchengine.org
