Tips to build an effective SEO marketing strategy

When it comes to digital marketing, organic search techniques powered by SEO are unrivalled in terms of durability and cost efficiency. SEO is more affordable than sponsored advertising, and its results last longer as well. While PPC campaigns require renewal and bidding prices change, SEO tracking tools employ organic data to construct keyword lists and keep coming up with new content ideas as you delve deeper.

Following are some tips to build an effective SEO marketing strategies:

1. Always put readers first and search engines second

As was already established, the Google algorithm continues to improve our thinking by becoming smarter every day and employing constant human input. Having said that, there is no cunning workaround or secret technique to trick a search engine, so don't even attempt. Write with readers and search engines in mind first.

In the end, you should always put the needs of your audience first, and the only way to do that is to create compelling material that is inherently naturalistic.

2. Place targeted keywords in the appropriate locations.

Although search engines should always come second to people, the foundation of this entire process is keywords. By focusing on popular search phrases, SEO marketing not only reaches the core of what users and Google are looking for, but it also generates 1000 percent or more traffic than organic social media, which accounts for over half of all web traffic. Since keywords are the foundation of SEO, they should also be the foundation of everything you do.

3. Focus on user experience (UX)

Dead links, error pages, and disorganised site structures all affect the impression visitors get of your website. A positive user experience and simple navigation are valued by users, but this seamlessness also aids Google's crawlers in reading your material and determining where you will appear in SERPs. Organize your subfolders, use headings, and write brief, easy-to-read paragraphs while optimising for mobile. All of these actions will lower your bounce rate, raise your rankings, and increase conversions all around.

4. Focus on building relevant links

Links are also a significant ranking component. By clicking on links to subsequent pages and evaluating how relevant they are to a search query, bots and crawlers find content. This also applies to internal linking, so don't be hesitant to link to other helpful pages on your website when appropriate and natural to do so. After using a link-building plan for one to three months, 51% of marketers saw a difference. You can hire a freelancer or a link building agency to do this for you and get faster results.

5. Prepare the content for featured snippets.

These days, featured snippets essentially control SERPs. Even if you've never heard the word before, it's likely that you are already aware of them. For the majority of search queries, they are the highlighted response boxes that are found at the top of the pages. You must be doing something well if you are able to obtain a featured snippet.

You can increase your chances of getting a featured snippet by using particular formatting and style choices, like infographics, bullet points, numbered lists, and directly responding to search queries.

6. Remove anything that slows down your site

Again, it can't be stressed enough how easy it is to get the technical aspects perfect so that your website and particular content can speak for themselves. Your website needs to be speedy, accessible, and simple to use whether you're writing educational blogs, insurance marketing a product or service, or just putting someone in the right way. People now want instantaneous information and outcomes. They will simply go on if your website takes a long time to load.


Last but not least, keep in mind that there is no actual end to your SEO marketing plan. There is always work to be done because of the constant upgrades and competition, not to mention that you can always get better at what you've already done.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
