Organic SEO Checklist

This quick organic SEO chechlist is has been created purely to help you ensure that your website has a solid foundation for any SEO campaign you might want to launch.

For example, we don't go into too much detail about meta data or rel canonical links or even density as this is more in depth SEO. However, without the basics the rest of the organic SEO work you do is based on shaky foundations so here we cover the basics for you.

We go in to more detail about this in our article titled "Doing Your Own Organic SEO" and you can also find some really good resources and tutorials over on SEO Dojo to help you with the basics.

Page Speed

You may well be using shared hosting and for this reason your website may well be loading slowly. You can test your page speed on websites such as Pingdom Website Speed Test to see how quickly your website loads. Personally I wouldn't take these figures to heart but they will give you a good indication of how fast your web server is. A good trick here is to put what's referred to as the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) into the test bar to see not only how long the server takes to respond but also how quickly the redirect to the "www" version of the website is redirected.

You can also look at your Analytics to see how many people leave your website without looking at a 2nd page. This is the "Bounce Rate" and typically this is higher for websites with slow page load speeds as people simply leave because they have to wait too long for a page to load.

Also bear in mind that page delivery speed (how quickly the page is sent from the server) and page receipt speeds can vary wildly. If your user is on a mobile connection for example the speed that they receive the page may well be slower than expected. One way around this is to turn off certain elements for mobile users to enhance their experience.

Title Tag

This is the title that shows up at the top of the browser window when someone browses to your website. For example "Smith's Shoes" (yes, I do like my cobblers). This is hidden within the meta data of your website and should also be consistent with the content.

Description Tag

This is a small piece of descriptive text about your website. Typically no more than 160 characters. Something like "Smith's Shoes, hand made leather shoes created to help you put the right foot forward." A little thing you can do here is even add a telephone number at the end (within the characters limit of-course) so that when people search for you that contact number displays in the results pages thus making it easier for them to get in touch.

H1 Tag

This is basically the primary header tag. The title for your website. Again, this should be consistent and there should only be one.

"Smith's Shoes" would be an obvious choice here but you could also use something like "Handmade Shoes" or "Bespoke Shoes in Chester". The key is consistency.

We're not covering everything here but the above should be a good start for you. Feel free to browse our SEO Blog and when you're ready to roll up your sleeves we have free guides and tutorials available over on the SEO Dojo where it's free to sign up and we hope

    We boarded our dinghy and made hard work of the short
    journey across a rising channel to La Marmotire.
    A sand eel danced out of the way as we lolloped on to the beach.

    Luke fished, I wandered. As the protestors protested, for the better part of an hour,
    the oil men and oil women, dressed in suits of
    blue and gray, sat back in their folding chairs and tap tapped on their smart phones, while drinking the complimentary coffee
    and looking nonplused. Some smiled at the spectacle, for a bit, others appeared to be tweeting, but after several minutes
    of anti oil chants, and a fair bit of yipping, the barons
    soured. Their parade had been rained on.

    cheap jerseys You need "exclusive buyer agent." Sometimes buyer agents are paid directly by you, on an hourly or contracted fee.
    Other times they split the commission that the seller's agent gets upon sale.

    A buyer's representative has the same access to homes for sale that a seller's agent
    does, but his or her allegiance is supposed to be only
    to you.. cheap jerseys

    Some halls may require seated players to have an attendance ticket in plain view while they play.

    If a player has bingo, it up to him or her to stop play
    before the next number is called by announcing "bingo!" loud enough for
    the caller to hear. It important to know that bingo must be claimed on the most recent
    number called. cheap jerseys

    Cheap Jerseys china And though all of the residents appear in all three acts, which span 17 hours of this mostly uneventful Memorial Day, Bill the laconic night clerk who is in many ways the audience's stand
    in, the relatively sane lens through which we're meant to view the action, and who seems in his own passive
    way to be quietly smitten with Girl is entirely absent for the long second act.
    This isn't just true to his situation he's the night clerk, after all,
    and the second act is set in the afternoon it's also a key signal that
    Wilson has made the individual voices in his play subordinate to the larger form and themes.

    This will not be primarily the story of Bill pining for Girl, or of
    the two having some kind of centrally meaningful exchange, at least not any more than anyone else has a meaningful exchange in this
    not quite a home, not quite an impersonal business limbo
    (indeed, in the geography of Lanford Wilson's America, Hot

    Cheap Jerseys free shipping I have shared the belief that I became riddled with cancer due to my toxic suppression of negative events throughout my life.
    What isn't known is that one of those demons was my decision to not field against Pakistan in the semi final of the 1992
    World Cup, and to instead put my torn hamstring on ice, elevated and compressed, in an attempt to be fit for the final at the MCG, four days later.
    I thought we had enough on the board (262 on a slow, low pitch) and the medical
    advice was that to be fit to play in four days I needed to elevate
    and ice immediately, and therefore not field Cheap Jerseys free shipping.

    I think everything published was actually very logical.

    But, consider this, what if you added a little information? I ain't suggesting your content is not solid, but
    suppose you added something that grabbed people's
    attention? I mean Organic SEO Checklist -  What No
    Website is a little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article
    titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited
    about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!
