How to Win at SEO in the Coming Year
Is SEO perfection an attainable outcome for your business? It’s never too soon to start honing-in on a plan for the New Year. Here are some unmissable focus areas for you and your team.
– Put your eggs in Google’s basket. Google is king in the search engine world – Google searches account for over 92% of all searches; competing search engines fragment the >8% of other searches into tiny batches. Plus, Google’s reach is growing – with 3.5 billion searches per day and 40,000 per second, the volume of searches on Google grows by 10% every year.
– Go local or go home. Optimizing for local makes it easy for users to find you – and creates conversions from searches. Did you know that 76% of local searches result in a phone call? Be the guy on the receiving end. Backlink to credible local sites, optimizing for keyword-specific local terms, and dive into Google My Business.
– While 2019 has been the year of voice search, continuing to optimize for voice will be a major benefit, especially for local brick and mortar businesses.
– Optimize for Google Lens – AI’s reverse image search. Add a strong, visually present logo on products, signage and other visual media. Optimize images with descriptive copy and metadata, and encourage your customers to upload photos of your business.
