SEO is not a one-and-done endeavor. Sure, some fundamentals can be learned, but good SEOs are not born SEO geniuses. Effective SEO is simply a matter of developing good SEO habits. You will become proficient at SEO and be able to create content and websites that rank on Google after practicing good SEO habits for days, weeks, and years. I know this firsthand because I learned SEO and taught it in our group and one-on-one coaching programs.
While there will undoubtedly be large-scale projects that you will work on as an SEO, things like:
- Website optimization
- Building a strategy
- Link building campaigns
- Content audits
The good habits you develop will lead to real, long-term SEO results. These building blocks are what will set you apart from your competitors on Google and allow you to eventually outrank and outsmart them. To assist you on your journey, I’ll break down the essential SEO habits I’ve observed or developed over the years that will put you on the fast track to SEO success.
Whether you work on a marketing team of two, twenty, or one hundred people, these general SEO habits will serve you well in your job and career. SEO is only effective if your suggestions are implemented; otherwise, it is just talking. These habits will assist you in developing positive relationships within your organisation and getting things done. Spend time with your website designers. Unless you’re a one-man show, you’re probably working with a web developer or development team.
Make them your friends. It’s as simple as that. Making it simple and easy for Google to find and index your content is a critical component of getting results from SEO. Prioritizing crawl ability, sitemap structure, and site speed will help your strategy succeed.
Ignoring those things risks squandering all of your efforts.
Having a good relationship with your development team allows you to prioritise those items. Schedule time with them, have coffee with them, and perhaps host a team lunch (in person or virtually)—do whatever it takes to get to know them and form a bond so that you can work together rather than bringing them a list of demands.
Set aside time on a regular basis, alongside your other priorities, to review and address the technical aspects of your website if you are also a web developer. It’s critical to track and stay ahead of tech debt, just like a product development team.
This is something that far too few SEOs do. It’s tempting to isolate yourself with a keyword database and a call that research, but you’re overlooking an important ingredient: the customer.
SEO is concerned with answering two questions:
- Who is doing the searching?
- What are they searching for?
A spreadsheet cannot provide an answer to that question. You must speak with people or listen to recordings/read transcripts of people who have done so. That is the most effective and efficient way to understand your company’s target customers and the questions they ask. Request that Sales or Customer Success listen in on calls so you can get a better sense of what your customer is trying to accomplish, their goals, and their challenges. This can then be supplemented with traditional keyword research tools (we constantly do it with our keyword research tools).
Spend time with the other members of the marketing team.
If you’re only one member of a larger market ting team, try to look beyond SEO and understand your team’s overall goals. If you’re a one-person marketing team, talk to the CEO and the sales team (sometimes the same thing).
This broadens your horizons beyond the specifics of search engine optimization. SEO is not the only goal. It is a tool used to achieve a business goal, such as increasing the number of customers for a product line or beta participants. As an SEO, you’re on a mission to help your company thrive, so you should understand what that entails.
The more you understand your company’s and organization’s goals, the better your SEO efforts will align with and support those goals, making your work much more effective.
Keep the end goal in mind at all times. It is critical to review your goals on a regular basis and assess your progress toward them. None of us SEOs can predict how Google will react to the changes we propose. We’re sometimes wrong, and sometimes we’re right. It’s critical to track your progress against your objectives to ensure you’re on the right track and to correct course as needed.
Never stop learning.
The best SEOs I know are always curious and hungry for more. Constantly inquire. A natural sense of curiosity will serve you well in any profession. If you ever think you have all the answers or are bored, stop and find someone you admire and talk to them about what they are working on in 5 minutes, you’ll realise how far you still have to go.
Subscribe to blogs, listen to podcasts, participate in Slack conversations… whatever it takes to keep your mind and skills sharp. Although there is a strong temptation in SEO to always be correct, I prefer to be proven wrong. We only learn when we are proven incorrect; otherwise, we are not being challenged.
Writing SEO habits
Before you start writing, go over the search results. It used to be that you could get SEO results simply by publishing a blog post. Now? Not at all. It’s not that blogging is ineffective. It’s just that there are probably hundreds or thousands of pieces of content similar to yours and only ten spots on Google’s first page.
Yeah, those odds bother me as well. You can gain an advantage by researching what already ranks for the question you want to rank and asking what you can do to improve on the existing content. Google will not rank your content simply because it exists; it must be better than what is already there.
Better does not necessarily imply longer; better could be longer/more in-depth, but it is best to focus on the intent behind the keyword you are targeting and ask how you can better match it.
While each piece of content should be designed to answer a single question, chances are your reader has a few more. Examine the search results and search features to get an idea of what follow-up questions your reader might have that you can answer.
This is a great way to establish authority in your content while also making it as comprehensive as possible. It’s also a great way to simply write some great content that helps your reader solve problems and make better purchasing decisions.
While writing, keep the buyer’s journey in mind.
One of the most common reasons people say blogging “doesn’t work” is that they envision two-dimensional content that does nothing more than scratch the surface and move on. That content, of course, will not work—no one enjoys reading it, and it does nothing to move a reader further down your funnel.
When you’re about to write a piece of content, consider where your reader is in the buyer’s journey. Do they appear at the top of your funnel? If that’s the case, how about at the bottom of the funnel? This is an excellent opportunity to assist them in making a more informed purchasing decision by purchasing from you. You could direct them to a demo page, a free trial, or a consultation. High-value conversion assets work well here as well. Not only will this content better match the reader’s intent, but it will also better serve your business goals.
Content review SEO habits
One side of the coin is content creation. However, once you’ve published your content, that’s not the end of the story. To constantly improve your content, you can and should test and iterate on it. Your website’s content is a living component that should be treated as a product that can be tweaked and optimised.
Regularly review top-performing content
Depending on the topic’s search volume, you could have hundreds to thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of visitors to your website each month. What a pity if they all bounced off that piece of content and never returned.
Take the time to review your top-ranking content in order to improve your conversion opportunities and turn it into a conversion machine for your company.
Regularly evaluate underperforming content.
- On the other hand, I like to review my worst-performing content at least once a month.
- If your content isn’t ranking, it’s time to investigate why.
- Is it not listed?
- Is it difficult for Google to locate this page?
- Is the content insufficiently authoritative or comprehensive?
- Could it be more in line with the intent?
- Could you make any changes to the structure?
There are numerous ways to improve your content to see if it will perform better; otherwise, it may be time to retire the content and redirect it to another page. Keep an eye out for high-ranking, low-converting content. You’re probably passing up some excellent traffic opportunities.
Just because a piece of content isn’t getting much traffic doesn’t mean it’s not ranking. In fact, there are probably pages on your website that rank on pages 1-2 but receive little traffic. This is what I call high-ranking low-converting content; it ranks but isn’t clicked on for whatever reason.
What is the solution? Exercise your copywriting muscles.
Experiment with different titles and meta descriptions to see what will catch your readers’ attention and entice them to click. This is the quickest and most straightforward way to increase traffic to your site and establish the authority of your high-ranking content. Iterate on your content on a regular basis. Your content is not complete once it is published.
You’re not writing a book or making art to sit on a shelf. Your website’s content is a living, evolving entity that should be reviewed and updated on a regular basis. You should view your website as a product that needs to be reviewed and evolved over time, just as you never stop working on and evolving your product or business. This keeps your content current and relevant, and Google favors fresh content, so it’s a win-win for both SEO and your readers.
Analysis of SEO
We touched on analytics briefly, but there are a few more SEO analytics habits I try to develop that will be beneficial to you. Because you’re probably already checking your traffic and search console reports, let’s go beyond the obvious. When it comes to SEO strategy, you must make deliberate decisions about the content you will create and the keywords you will target.
Examine the target page and query performance on a regular basis. If you stick to your strategy, you’ll need a way to see if the content you’re creating is having an impact. I do this by reviewing how my target pages and target keywords are performing on a regular basis.
The key metrics to monitor for target pages are:
- Organic visits
- Bounce rate
- Conversions/events if applicable
For target keywords, it’s:
- Impressions on Google
- Click-through rate
First, ensure that Google indexes it. If Google does not see and index your content, it has no chance of ranking. It’s now time to track its progress in search:
- Is the content being shown in search results?
- What keywords is your content ranking for?
- What keywords is it getting clicks for?
- How do impressions, position, and traffic change over time
All of these are critical questions to ask yourself with each new piece of content you create.
Technical SEO practices
Without a few technical components, no SEO strategy would be complete. Again, make friends with your developer(s), as they will be your best ally in ensuring that your website is in good technical shape and that your strategy is well-executed.
Keep your site coverage up to date. f your content is not being indexed, it will not appear in search results. Fortunately, Google Search Console includes a handy coverage report that shows how much of your website has been crawled and indexed, as well as which pages have been missed. Monitor site speed and Core Web Vitals on a regular basis. Google is becoming more concerned with website speed and page experience.
It all makes sense. Google is on a mission to provide the best answer to every question, and its dominance as a search engine is based on the quality of the content they provide. This is applicable to any search engine. Aside from the obvious, slow loading times, popups, and other poor user experiences are easy ways to degrade your quality.
Fast content is not guaranteed to rank, but it will provide a better experience than slow content, which will struggle to compete with similar quality content. I’m not obsessed with page speed, but I do pay attention to it on occasion.
Avoiding bad SEO habits
I’ll leave you with some bad SEO habits to avoid because you’ve got a nice, healthy list of good SEO habits. These are things I see many people new to SEO do, as well as things perpetuated by outdated advice.
- Concerned about keyword density
- Concerned about domain authority
- Overreliance on SEO tools and the data they provide Obsession with a “focus keyword”
- Concerned about domain authority and other fabricated metrics
- Obsession with hyperlinks
- In relation to the preceding, spamming people for links (seriously, please stop)
- Overemphasis on word count
These are some of the most common “bad” SEO practices I see.
They are not toxic or will harm your rankings; they are simply less productive than the ones listed above. They may feel like a bag of chips in the short term, but they aren’t doing much for you in the long run.
Finally, I hope this (somewhat) exhaustive list has been helpful.
I understand that the last thing anyone wants is more work. Isn’t SEO already a lot of work? If you’re not sure where to go next or how to advance as an SEO, this list is a good place to start.
Try implementing one or two of these habits at a time. Keep in mind that you are what you do. By implementing these core habits, you will develop the same natural instincts as the best SEOs. It’s simply a matter of repetition and sustained focus.
Whether you’ve been in business for decades or just a day, one of the most difficult aspects of your operations to predict is how to reach and engage your target audience most effectively. The best product development and logistics in the world won’t matter if you can’t get your message to the right people at the right time. You’ve seen commercials, billboards, magazine ads, and other forms of traditional advertising, but how much do you know about online marketing? Many business leaders may consider pop-ups or banner advertisements on websites. Some people are aware that a well-maintained social media presence is also an important aspect of online marketing.
Owners and executives frequently regard marketing as an expense, and they are correct — running advertisements costs money regardless of the medium. Traditional marketing, on the other hand, has a particularly high entry barrier; even billboards in the middle of nowhere and 8 p.m. commercial slots aren’t cheap.
While large budgets are encouraged and provide more room for engagement, platforms such as Google and Facebook have no minimum barrier to entry. If you wanted to, you could run a $100 campaign. Furthermore, these platforms frequently provide ad spend credit to new advertisers.
Increased Audience Reach
When you purchase an advertisement in a physical newspaper, your target audience is defined as the newspaper’s subscribers. When you get a time slot on a TV channel, your target audience is defined as the people who watch that channel for that show at that time. While some demographic breakdowns can be assessed depending on the medium (for example, readers of Yacht magazine are most likely Yacht fans), more traditional channels often lack the ability to tailor your messaging to specific audiences. For example, both 18-year-olds and 55-year-olds require households, but do they respond to the same advertisements?
online marketing channels allow you to target individuals based on age, gender, income level, location, job title, interests, and more at no additional cost. If you’re not sure what demographic breakdown applies to your company, free analytics tools associated with platforms like Google and Facebook show you the exact characteristics of people who follow your page or visit your website.
When you use traditional advertising to promote your brand or a new product or service, you are at the mercy of hoping that your target audience will notice your efforts. Whether it is a person taking the correct freeway to work or paying attention to the brochure at your booth, you must rely heavily on individuals at the right place and right time However, the majority of consumers are online at least some of the time.
You can potentially reach your audience through digital marketing mediums whenever they check their smartphone or desktop. And, if you want a specific product or aspect of your brand to reach a specific segment of your audience, you can do so as well.
Tracking your performance is one of the most difficult aspects of traditional marketing. Although media buyers can tell you how many people saw your commercial, how do you prove that the advertisement resulted in a sale?
You can attach contact information forms to digital advertisements. This serves three purposes: It tells you how many people responded to the ad in the way you wanted them to; it allows you to add them to your email and phone lists, and it gives you the opportunity to qualify the lead right away. And an instant answer is critical for converting a lead into a sale.
Customer Retention And Engagement
It’s simple for bars and restaurants to maintain customer engagement because it’s one of their primary business functions. But how does a small-batch distillery communicate with someone who bought their product 1,000 miles away?
Technology provides business owners with numerous ways to interact with their customers, whether through review management, social media posts, or email newsletters. You can respond to a customer’s negative feedback in a public forum using digital mediums, which not only allows you to assuage their concerns but also allows everyone who reads the review to see your response. You can also build a loyal community online by engaging with customers who have had a positive experience with your company.
Maintain Connection with Your Customers
Traditional marketing is still an effective way to get your message out to people. However, nothing beats digital marketing for truly engaging with your customers and learning what messages they respond to.
If you’re seeking the greatest off-page SEO methods, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve identified the top 15 off-page SEO trends and approaches in this blog.

Low-quality content and content with excessive keyword stuffing may be rejected. Select the appropriate category and give your article a catchy title.
9. Question & Answer
Question and answer websites are a great method to attract a lot of visitors. Join high PR question and answer sites, search for queries about your business, blog, or website, and provide precise responses. Include a link to your website, which will increase your visibility.
10. Submission of a Video
Go to prominent video submission platforms if you want to make your videos more popular. Provide a suitable title, description, tags, and reference links. Because all video submission platforms have high PR, it is one of the most common strategies to earn quality backlinks.

14. Press Release
Writing compelling press releases with high-quality, relevant content and distributing them to reliable outlets and platforms
Above all, Web2.0 is simply another strategy for creating subdomains on high-domain authority websites. For instance, medium.com, tumbler, blogger, WordPress, and so on.
Web2.0 Best Practices:
- Continue to share your fantastic content.

Google My Business is another free Google offering. Optimize this platform for the highest possible local SEO ranking. There are numerous locations where you may intelligently optimise the content and links, and from there we can generate a sizable amount of social traffic and brand exposure.
Best Google My Business Tips
- Have a proper description of at least 250 characters.
- Make sure your primary, as well as your city name, are included in the first paragraph.
- Update the content, galleries, items, and offers on a regular basis.
- Continue to monitor your reviews and respond to them as soon as possible.

Digital Marketing Strategies
Startups and small businesses may lack the resources of a global corporation, but that does not mean they cannot outperform their competitors. They simply need to devise an intelligent marketing strategy. Small firms will have to fight their fights with a creative digital marketing strategy.
1. Social Media Marketing
The Startups can use social media marketing to spread the word about their company and establish their brand. It’s not just about earning likes or followers; it’s about building an online community of people who share your interests.
According to a Social Media Examiner research, 90% of marketers believed that social media is critical to their company. 89 percent of respondents said social media had enhanced awareness for their groups.
The actual question is how to use the various social media networks to maximise your business’s exposure and make your social media initiatives successful.
1. Perfect Your Strategy
You must select a plan that will set you apart from the crowd. People spend hours on Facebook and Twitter, yet they don’t pay attention to everything in their newsfeeds. You must do something special if you want to capture everyone’s attention.
2. Clean Up Your Social Media Profiles
When constructing your social media profiles, use long-tail keywords and phrases. These words are more likely to show in Google search results, implying more search engine traffic. Long-tail keywords also help people reach your sites on social media platforms.
3. Create a Buyer Persona
Developing a social media plan without first identifying your customer persona is like to shooting darts while blindfolded. You might hit the target, but it will most likely be by chance. A social media strategist who does not do this has not done their homework, and the outcomes will reflect this.
A skilled consultant will want to know who your company’s social media competitors are while establishing a business’s social media identity. This is crucial because you must understand what your competitors are doing well in order to replicate their success.
2. Influencer Marketing
Marketers today are seeking new and innovative ways to sell their products. One of the most cost-effective methods is to use influencer marketing. It’s a strategy that can help you enhance brand exposure, traffic, and sales.
It’s a win-win for both the brand and the influencers. Businesses can use their social media presence to reach out to their target demographic. At the same time, influencers might receive a portion of the revenues in exchange for promoting them.
- Reaching consumers has gotten increasingly difficult as digital marketing channels have become more saturated. With the various advertisements we see online and the countless emails we receive every day, most consumers no longer pay attention to traditional marketing channels.
- Influencer marketing is less expensive than other advertising tactics, according to a Trackmaven analysis. According to the report, 90% of consumers trust recommendations from friends and family, making it the most effective method of marketing. When it comes to brands, though, influencer marketing was the second most trusted type of marketing after word-of-mouth.
- Influencer marketing is a powerful approach for creating relationships and raising brand recognition that is also simple to deploy. You may get started with influencer marketing right away if you understand and follow the procedures outlined below.
To begin, your brand should compile a list of industry influencers with a following in your target market. Then, reach out to and connect with each of these people on social media. Following that, your brand should collaborate with each influencer to establish a campaign in which they spread information about your products or services in exchange for pay.
Every piece of content you publish, whether it’s a blog post, an infographic, or a PowerPoint, should give value to your brand. The practical content strategy is designed to correspond to the various stages of the buyer’s journey. In this manner, you can ensure that your material is relevant and beneficial to your present and potential clients.
Material marketing, an effective digital marketing technique for startups, can assist you in creating more content for your website’s blog and social media channels. Content marketing also aids your SEO and social media marketing efforts.
- Increase brand visibility
- Improve your relationship
- Make your brand known.
- Improve your brand’s credibility
- Lead your field.
4. Affiliate Marketing
Influencer marketing and affiliate marketing complement each other. Both rely on people’s influence to produce sales. As a result, one of the most important digital marketing strategies for startups is affiliate marketing, which should be combined with your influencer campaign. An affiliate program’s purpose is to generate leads for your brand. Affiliates are similar to commission-based salespeople. You pick how you want to pay them. Whether you want to pay them based on sales or on a fixed payment per product.
Affiliate recruitment software is the most effective approach to finding affiliates. It automates much of the laborious effort involved in locating and recruiting affiliates who are related to your brand. You offer affiliates with affiliate links in order to track sales. These links can be shared with their social media contacts, who can then visit your site and make a purchase using the link.
5. Email Marketing
Email marketing has the greatest ROI (Return-On-Investment) of 500 percent among the most critical and cost-effective techniques to grow a firm. This means that for every Re. 1 invested, you will receive INR 50 back. As a result, email marketing is one of the most effective digital marketing strategies for startups.
Because you’re just getting started, here are three pointers to assist you to get started with email marketing:
- On your website, you might use the coming soon or launch soon template to alert your users when your firm (or product) launches.
- You can offer beta testing for your tools or goods while also growing your email list.
- Offering free trials, demos, reports, or e-books can help you build your email list.
6. Search Engine Marketing
SEM is one of the greatest digital marketing strategies for startups for achieving rapid results (Search Engine Marketing). If you promote on search engines, your startup will acquire greater exposure and sales.
- Results are available immediately.
- It is simple to reach your intended audience.
- You only pay if someone clicks on your advertisement.
- You can start with as little as $10 per day and stop at any moment.
- Complete data and insights will boost your search engine marketing efforts and other marketing methods.
SEM campaign budgets can soon run out. A great SEM campaign necessitates certain knowledge and experience in order to produce the best outcomes for your startup. As a result, search engine marketing as part of a startup’s digital marketing plan can be challenging. As a result, begin with a minimal budget and take your time studying it.
Without SEO, you may lose your online visibility. It entails receiving organic search engine traffic without having to pay any further expenses. If you start a blog, search engines will deliver organic traffic to your services pages, homepage, and landing pages. As a result, SEO assists startups in acquiring new clients at no cost.
Advantages of Using SEO as Part of a Startup’s Digital Marketing Strategy:
- High ROI and low costs
- Long-lasting outcomes
- Increase your audience organically.
- Earning trust and authority is simple.
- Make a name for yourself as a trustworthy brand.
8. YouTube Promotion
Google is the first. You might be surprised to learn that YouTube is the world’s second most popular search engine. YouTube currently has over 265 million active users in India. This is a great argument for brands to establish a YouTube presence in order to reach their target demographic.
However, many businesses, in my experience, have yet to incorporate YouTube marketing into their overall marketing strategy. A well-planned YouTube marketing campaign can yield impressive results for your startup marketing. It’s no secret that YouTube Marketing has aided companies such as Flipkart, Hyundai, Asian Paints, and Pepsi in expanding their operations.
9. Make a Google My Business page
Before making any kind of purchase choice, people Google everything. People will look you up online before doing business with you as a startup since they don’t know you well enough. As a result, as a startup digital marketing plan, you should consider creating a “Google My Business” profile for your company.
10. Make Use of Automation Tools
Because you are in the early stages of your firm, you may not be able to recruit a large workforce to do all of your tasks. As a remedy, you might enlist the assistance of various automation technologies to make your task easier. These tools assist you in performing tedious tasks that do not require your time or ingenuity. You can spend the same amount of time doing more beneficial things for your organisation, such as brainstorming and strategizing.
Here are the five finest tools for companies to use as part of their digital marketing strategy:
- Mailchimp: For generating awesome email marketing campaigns.
- Hubspot: Inbound marketing software
- Unbounce: Use to optimize your landing pages
- Colibri: To increase traffic
- Canva: To swiftly make gorgeous designs
Startups aren’t in a rush. There is no pressing need. Startups have plenty of time. They have time to wait. They are free to take their time determining what they wish to do. They can take their time and try different things, right? So, if you are a startup looking to launch in 2022. If you want to stay in business for a long time, you must devise an outstanding digital marketing plan for startups by handpicking and combining the appropriate marketing channels.
A digital marketing agency can help you develop a customised digital marketing plan for your startup. DigitalCrave is India’s most successful and well-known digital marketing agency. They have been in the market for over the years and have worked with numerous brands from diverse industries.
If you truly want to show people what you can do, you must pay close attention to the SEO of your startup’s website.
Gaining a new audience, and possibly new clients in the future is critical.
Good SEO is also linked to increased visitors to your website. It is very tough to break and be on top of the market without proper, strong placement. Following the lead of Silicon Valley startup blogs, which demonstrate that proper positioning makes it easier for Google to locate you. It encourages visitors to visit your page, stay on it, and return… for a long time.
It also refers to the home page of your website. Try searching for proofs on your search engine, but focus on the most technologically advanced areas. In terms of SEO, the Silicon Valley area is the best store of expertise.
Good content appears to be the key to success not only for a blog piece but also for attracting a new, large audience and increasing the visibility of your website in information searches. In today’s SEO world, site content is really important.
What is the mechanism behind it?
Google’s search engine is known as a contextual search engine. In Google, there are numerous elements that influence positioning (probably there are about 200 ). For the search engine, the most significant factor is high-quality, unique information. You must follow a few basic principles in order for Google to consider your content to be of high quality. The text will then be recognized by Google as being of high quality, which is half the battle won!
The following are the key rules to remember when developing SEO-friendly content:
- Text length + keywords. The wording should not be very long. A description should be between 100 and 160 characters long, including spaces. Keywords that are relevant should be included. Keywords should be unique, very specific to the described content, and preferably in every title of the article; otherwise, Google will consider them more valuable to the entire content and rank the website higher. There is no clear answer as to how many times a particular keyword must appear in the text, but it must do so. Using many synonyms of keywords within your text is a great idea.
- Do not copy text: The Google search engine isn’t stupid. It is perfectly capable of determining whether the content is your own or has been copied from another source. If you copy your site’s content, you risk being blocked or pushed down the search rankings.
- Pictures: Infographics are the most common type of image in content marketing. The best you can do is sign and properly explain your photographs; it’s even better if the term you want to position your material is contained in their description. To describe, use the “alt” (alternative text) element, which allows you to provide a brief description, preferably with keywords. When you add a new picture to WordPress, the alt field appears as an input area for the alternative text.
- Video: Video can help you improve your content. As you may be aware, the reader is sluggish and may not choose to read the entire text; thus, make it easy for him to convey content by employing video. An article in the form of a movie will make it much easier for your audience to remember your material and will be more exciting to recall. Remember to give your videos titles, descriptions, and tags.
- The content’s freshness. As you are aware, the material in your articles becomes obsolete over time. Google Panda takes into account not only the uniqueness of texts but also the timeliness of those texts. As a result, it’s worthwhile to go back and update old blog articles, product descriptions, and category pages from time to time.
However, you may increasingly hear ideas that the user’s activity on the website has an impact on SEO: how quickly they leave, and how much time they spend on it. Install Google Analytics or another tool to keep an eye on the page and check it frequently. This solution allows you to track both your activities and your writing strategies, as well as show you how clients react.
