When it comes to keywords, less is more. While it may seem like a good idea to load your web pages with keywords (keyword stuffing), it is actually better to stick to a few keywords per page.
Boost your website’s speed
The faster your website loads, the better it is for the overall experience of your visitors. Sluggish load times are likely to rank lower than faster ones. Plus, a slower web page leads to a higher bounce rate.
Use header tags
These help with SEO by telling search engines and your readers what the article or blog will be about.
Use images and videos
Images are a big part of how we experience a web page. That matters for SEO because Google’s algorithm pays attention to behavior metrics that reflect user experience, like bounce rates and the amount of time visitors spend on a web page.
Improve your web design and layout
A user friendly layout leads to more traffic and less buyer confusion.
Optimize for mobile
85% of travelers use mobile devices to book travel activities. Having a mobile friendly website is key to direct bookings.
Install social sharing button
The number of times your content is shared on social media sites can affect your SEO ranking.
SEO can feel like an overwhelming and constantly changing to do list, but you are not alone. Start with these 10 tips and you will be on the right path to achieving top SEO rankings.
