You have a website, and now you want to focus on the SEO of your website? Only by adopting the right SEO strategies can your potential customers find you through your website. So I give you 4 tips for a good website SEO!

1. Put a blog on your site

This is the best way to let Google know that your site is animated :) You must therefore feed it regularly. If I set a goal to publish one article a day, it's not without reason.

Indeed, it would be best to write as much as possible. If you don't have time at first, you can do it at least once a week.

2. Fine-tune your blog posts to ensure a good website SEO

When you write a blog post, it has to be nice to read. Google likes it! But how do you do it? Do as I do :) You may have noticed that for each of my articles, I include 4 pictures (for 500 words).

But again, for each of the images, I never forget to fill in the ALT attribute. You don't know what to write? Well, just describe the image (making sure to insert one of your keywords). Google doesn't know how to read images (I'll come back to this later).

I also write very short sentences, so that I have a good website SEO. Indeed, my blog is very airy. If you've been following me for a while, you probably noticed it. Actually, I do it for Google; but also for you.

If visitors to your site enjoy reading you (because you can write well), they will not hesitate to come back from time to time. However, Google records these repeated visits. It is said that: since people love your site, it must be of quality.

Even when you write an article, think of little tips for a good website SEO, like :

  • choose the keywords well (I do speak in plural, because you have to put variants of keywords in the text)
  • insert the words in the first paragraph of the text, in the headings
  • write the main keyword in the URL
  • and many others...

There is a Youtube video in which I describe this at the bottom of the article. Support me by subscting to the YouTube channel "Happy Desk Design"

3. Uses SEO tools

There are several SEO tools you can use. Don't worry, many of them are free. There are still some that are paid, and they work well, but if you're new to SEO, I advise you to focus on the free ones.

By the way, I've been talking about SEOquake in my articles this week (and other equally interesting SEO tools).

4. Favours texts

As a designer, you certainly use a lot of images on your site. That's good :) Your potential customers will already get an idea of your creativity. However, Google is unable to index graphic content. That's why, for each graphic (video, images...), you should accompany it with a text version.

In fact, that's what I do with my YouTube videos. I'll tell you, it really works!
