The 5 Minute SEO Audit: How to Get Higher Rankings and Traffic

If you've ever searched for information on how to get more search engine traffic, you probably ended up at a place like SEOMOZ or the Google Webmaster Forum. All of these SEO sites provide great advice and tips on how to improve your site's rankings in Google and other popular serach engines.

The tips that you read about include things like: 

      - The importance of having unique, relevant content

      - Getting incoming links from other high authority, related websites

      - Optimizing your site with keywords and key phrases

While all of this is great advice, if you haven't been doing it already, it can be a daunting task trying to pick through all the information to figure out what you should be doing first.

The following is a list of 10 easy, actionable items that you can use to make immediate improvements in your site's SEO and start getting more search engine traffic today:

         - Improve Content Quality

Having a lot of content on a site is always a plus for SEO purposes. The problem is that it's difficult for people to find new content on sites with bad organization or poorly written content. Many readers have learned to "skim" through articles online, so they won't bother reading large blocks of texts unless they contain interesting images or titles.

One thing you can do as an owner of the website, whether it gets thousands of visitors daily, or just a few dozen every day, is to improve the quality of your site's content.

You can begin by making sure that your articles are as long as they need to be. People generally don't want to read short blurbs of text on a web page, so it's important for you to put in some serious effort and write detailed and interesting articles and posts for your website. It's also good practice if you provide links to other relevant sites or resources at the end of each article.

         - Format Your Blog Posts Effectively

Another way that you can make your content more readable (and therefore more likely get read) is by using bullet points and numbered lists. Using list formats makes it easy for readers to find information quickly on a page, so they don't have to read through long paragraphs of text to find the right answer.

You can also use bold text here and there as call-out features. People will be able to tell at a glance what is important on your site, and what isn't.

         - Publish Relevant Content Regularly

Once you've gotten yourself set up with a website that has lots of good quality content, then you need to make sure that people actually see it by regularly updating your site with new content. This sounds like common sense advice, but many webmasters neglect their sites by putting out new posts only once in a while.

If you've got a blog for your site, then just make sure that you write about relevant topics and post them regularly to attract more readers and give your website the chance of getting higher search engine rankings.

         - Optimize Your Site's Images and Metadata

This should be one of the first steps that you take when optimizing your site for search engines because there are specific instructions on how to optimize image metadata, such as titles and tags. Regardless, even if you follow all of these guidelines, it won't mean much unless people actually see them by visiting your site through Google images or other sources like Flickr (for tagged images). The last thing that we'll mention is that having a custom favicon can go a long way with search engine optimization, so it's always a good idea to have one.

The following is a list of 10 easy, actionable items that you can use to make immediate improvements in your site's SEO and start getting more search engine traffic today:

             - Improve Content Quality

Having a lot of content on a site is always a good thing, but if that content is poorly written or it's about a subject that doesn't interest your target market, then you need to change it.

The following are a few things that you can do to improve your site's content:

             -  Use Keywords Strategically             If there is one single tip for search engine optimization that will get the most ROI (return on investment), it's this. You need to strategically include keywords and key phrases into your articles so that they show up in Google searches when someone types in those terms or phrase.

The idea is not just to stuff as many keywords as possible into every article because Google has become much better at recognizing spammy content over the years and penalize sites that try to do this. Instead, you need to use a variety of keywords and phrases in different areas throughout your articles.

Search engines look for keywords not just in the main content area, but also in headings, title tags, image names and ALT tags (the text embedded inside images). A good rule of thumb is to keep your keyword density between 1% and 3%, so if your article contains 300 words total, then there should be about three instances of this phrase or fewer.

             -  Make Your Site Mobile-Friendly

Most people use their mobile devices like smartphones and tablets to surf the web these days (both iOS and Android) and Google has already confirmed that it's using mobile-friend
