There are a number of factors and techniques that have to be considered when implementing SEO for a

Website Design

SEO capability begins with the website's design. If SEO is not incorporated from the design stage, then
your website will attract low volumes of traffic. A website has to look impressive and also be user-
friendly.

Certain SEO techniques such as title tags, meta tags and keyword placement should be implemented to
ensure more traffic to the website. It is therefore very important that you use a reputable and
professional web designer or company to design your company website.

Keywords

Understanding how to use the right keywords and phrases is essential to the success of a SEO campaign.
Make a point of using keywords that are relevant. Keywords can be found in the title, page header, body
of the article and URLs.

Use approximately five keywords because more than that will be recognised as spam by search engines.

Search engines use algorithms to identify websites that produces duplicate content so that only the
relevant pages are used. Using unique, fresh and engaging content will guarantee your website a good
place on the ranking list.

It is also necessary that your website is updated constantly so as to remain fresh and current. Very often
you will come across that uses outdated content and information. As a result, visitors will not return to
the website and they will be placed much lower in the search engine ranking results.

Titles And Metatags
It is crucial to use descriptive titles in order to attract more visitors to your website and optimize the
rankings within the search engines. Use appealing keywords in your titles and metatags and always
make sure that they are relevant to the content. Keep titles short, simple and catchy to increase target
audience appeal.

links that lead back to your website. The importance or popularity of the website is determined by the
number of backlinks.
