Ready to optimise your firm’s SEO? Here are 4 easy steps you can take to improve your Search Engine Optimisation.

  1. Well written content

    There is just no getting around it, well-written content is the bread and butter of an excellent SEO strategy. Great content should be easy for the reader to digest and understand. It should also include numerous mentions of the topic or service you are writing about. Increasing mentions of the relevant keywords that you wish to target will allow Google to further understand the content itself, but also positively influence the ranking too.

  2.  Optimised Headers (H1’s, H2’s and H3’s).

    Headers are an important aspect for service and blog pages due to Google’s algorithm understanding. The main header (H1) is the keyword for the page itself. If it is a service, for example, the H1 would be “Residential Conveyancing”. Header 2 (H2) titles would then be considered a sub-service or a form of residential conveyancing. It could also be the header for a paragraph mentioning the main keyword. Finally, header 3 titles (H3) would be any additional services, related keywords, or answers to FAQ’s.

  3. Low sized images

    Have you ever experienced an annoyingly slow loading page? Image size could be the culprit!  The faster an image loads, the quicker the website speed as explained here and the easier it is for the reader to navigate around the page and get to where they want to go. But that is not all! Not only does image size aid in seamless navigation, but it also decreases the overall size of the website. Not too shabby, huh?

  4. Correct image filenames

    Like lower-sized images, making sure that the file name of the image matches the main keyword (or variation) is a small but crucial step to optimising a page for Google. The more you mention your main keyword – and in as much media as possible – the better. Just be sure to not use the same keyword match twice.
