Now is a new decade for digital marketing, with a promising fresh start and complete new beginnings. But does it really mean you should be crafting a different SEO strategy for 2021?
In the blog of Bizz Directions, our President and digital marketing professional, Amy Fahad, gives you an SEO checklist to be followed for planning the strategy of result-oriented SEO services. In this blog, Amy gives cutting-edge ideas to empower your SEO strategy that will surely drive the potential traffic and leads to your website without spending a single buck.
Kick-Off With The Revolutionary SEO
To initiate the rudimentary SEO aspects will continue to be essential in 2021. Beginning the effort from redirections, meta-tagging, setting up the headers, images alt tagging, boosting your website speed, configuring your robots.txt, creating your site maps, improving your UX, focusing on analytics, etc.
There have been discussions in the digital industry regarding the image alt tagging the facts that actually work. As Google algorithm is good at figuring out what's in the picture? And that is the main reason why we should continue with the alt tagging.
But always set your focal point to make your website an accessible platform. So for this accessibility, you should follow these rudimentary SEO aspects.
Schema Markup (Schema Tags)
Breadcrumbs, FAQ, Business Info, News, etc.
Schema Tags (often called Schema Markup) is a form of microdata that you can integrate into your HTML to improve the way Google reads and represent your page in SERPs. It helps your website stand out from your SEO competitors. Schema markup can be found from Schema.org. Once added to a site page, it creates an enhanced description or rich snippet, which appears in search results.
Schema tags will continue to be essential, breadcrumbs, FAQ schema, business info. As time goes on, we will notice its importance for growth, and you will definitely leverage the different types of schema markup for your site.
Market Research That Effects Your Industry
To keep in your mind, there will be many articles, research, and information about where things are going; what you need to do is to prepare. I want you to take a strategic position in your field and what's essential for your industry.
While you might suggest that page speed will really matter in 2021, is it for your industry? You still have to worry in real about these things and keep improving. But suppose you can see the ranking factors more clearly and what appears to be factors for your relevant space. In that case, you can better prioritize repairs and leverage industry insights to help you focus.
Focus On Optimize Your Website Locally
You should be focusing more on Local SEO to acquire the local SERPs and rankings.
It was the case some time ago. We need to locate search results and rankings to get a precise and clear picture of what is happening in search results.
Many people feel that E-A-T is an essential factor in the future. Only in the case of this publication, it was always a prime factor. It has been that way for the past ten years, and we need to continue doing these things despite these various updates. I think it has always been important, and always will be.
Craft A Useful Content That Engages Users
While Google BERT still has some unknown tactics within its algorithm, you can write better content for NLP.
It will help optimize your content for processing the native language. It assists in making it more accessible and friendly for BERT. When you can not optimize BERT's content, you can just craft engaging content that users are looking for.
Understand The User Intent And Keep In Mind That There Is Multi-Intent Often
The only thing to think about in this space is that we have moved from precise keywords for a richer understanding; well, what do these keywords mean? How can we organize this and provide better value and content for our visitors?
One way to do this is to think of Google as the world's data. They know what people are looking for when they search for something in particular in their search. So put on the police sunglasses and check what you are offering for a specific keyword.
Is there a common theme on all pages? Design your content and your intention to solve it. You can craft the best article globally, but if you don't provide the relevant images that you see clearly on the Google search results page, you will never rank on page 1.
Entities And Topical Understanding
Gain a broad understanding of your audience and what you are looking for.
It plays well in entities and positional understanding. Again, we've changed keywords, and now we want to have this richer and better knowledge of the keyword set.
What places do people look for in their private space? What entities, people, places, or things are people researching in your area? How can you best organize your website to provide some of those answers and structures around those different pieces? It is essential, and I look forward to seeing where this goes in 2021.
Optimize The Website For Featured Snippets
Featured clips won't go anywhere. They are here to keep for a long. The easiest way to do this is to find the search terms that you currently rank on page 1 that also contain a different snippet box. These are your possibilities. If you are on page 1, you are more prepared to steal another potential or its disposition.
One of the main ways to do this is to present short, short, easy to understand, junk food, etc., a kind of simulation of what other people do, but obviously it doesn't copy or steal any of it—an entertaining space to explore and improve in 2021.
Optimize With Attractive Visuals
We see that Google puts more power behind images, whether you search for them or tag them as you like. It's an incredible value for SEO, whether it's unique images or organized video content, as Google can provide these sections in that video search result. You can do all kinds of really cool things with pictures.
Keep Up The Engagement
It is the best way, and we should have been doing it for a long time.
Our Founder & CEO, Fahad Hussain, says,
Real comments are way better for engagement than social linking."
I will explain how it will go. But I think it is clear that this strategy's participation and creation are still significant to move forward.
Make A Purpose Of Your Content
Blog posts > Slides > Audios > Videos
It is so important, and it will help you excel even more in 2021 if you find your top-performing web pages. You repurpose them into maybe be a YouTube video, perhaps a Linked-In profile, various tweets on Twitter, or posts on Facebook.
You can start revamping your content and expanding your reach online, which is really exciting. Besides, it is also interesting to manipulate the idea of providing options for people to consume their content. Even with our blogs, we can get an audio version that people can only listen to if they are on the go. We have copies. Provide options for users to consume your content.
Improve Low-Quality Pages
It has been compelling for me and many other SEOs that I know of to improve the site's perceived quality. Therefore, consider testing high-quality pages that are not indexed on a website. Massive websites, we see a significant impact there.
Get Client's Insights
It will continue to be useful in understanding the target market. It will be valuable to influence marketing for many reasons. Some of the fantastic tools currently available are Google Analytics, Ahrefs, Alexa, SEMRush, Moz, Majestic, and more.
Find Target Keyword Opportunities
It is surprising how few people do this and how accessible it is. Go to Google Search Console and export as much data as possible about your queries, click-through rate, site, and impressions. You can do some powerful visualizations to find opportunities.
For example, if this is your keyword ranking, which is your click-through rate, where do you get a high click-through rate but a low ranking position? What are these keyword opportunities? Incredibly valuable. You can do this with all kinds of tools. One recommendation that I would recommend, and I will create a little tutorial for, is a free tool called Facets, designed by Google to learn the machine. It makes it really easy to choose those scattered.
A couple of Bizz Directions 2021 build tactics that we hope will continue to work very well. What I mean by keywords that are related to engagement are keyword statistics and keyword data.
These are the searches that people often refer to. They want to link it. They want to quote it in a presentation. If you can create really cool content about these linking keywords, you can do incredibly well and link to a website.
If you are a guest or a host on a podcast, it is effortless to get links. It is kind of an innovative, fun build link.
Provide A Unique Image Search
Our digital marketing manager Syed Haseeb does it very well. So explore by exploring your unique search and not making it highly commercial but valuable to users. I know this was too much.
A lot was happening in 2021, but I hope some of this is helpful for you. I can not wait to hear your thoughts on these recommendations, the things you think I missed, and the things you will remove or change.
