Using the three elements of SEO:

  • On-page
  • Off-page
  • Technical

Illini Marketing Consultants whips your content into shape, increasing inbound links, and building social media influence. 

 

SEO Tactics

White Hat SEO

  • Adhere to Google Webmaster Guidelines for Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
  • Take more time to deliver results.
  • Lower risk of violating the search algorithms
  • Provide lasting & compounding value over time.

Grey Hat SEO

Grey Hat SEO techniques do not specifically violate Google Webmaster Guidelines but can be risky.

  • Examples include
    • Clickbait (content whose main purpose is to attract attention and encourage visitors to click on a link to a particular web page and not deliver value),
    • Spun (slightly altered) content,
    • Prolific link exchanges, and
    • Paying for reviews

Black Hat SEO

Black Hat SEO can get your website to the top of the page quickly and cheaply.

  • These shortcuts violate Google Webmaster Guidelines.
  • Using these dirty tricks can get your website demoted or banned from search results.
  • While you may be tempted to use these techniques, Google updates the ranking algorithm up to 600 times a year so the chances of being caught are very high.
  • Once you are ‘blacklisted” by the search engines, the value of Black Hat SEO is unsustainable and will be more expensive to fix than using approved techniques.

On-PAge SEO Tools

Increase your organic traffic, drive leads and improve your ranking using on-page SEO optimization.

While no single factor will make or break your page, our search engine ranking process combines to raise your overall score.

Make every page on your site search-engine-friendly using the following tools.

Keywords

The building blocks of on-page SEO

In terms of SEO:

  • the words and phrases that visitors enter into search engines.
  • Everything on your page — images, video, copy, etc. —broken down to simple words and phrases.

Content

Content is always king for every website.

Content is:

  • High-quality, relevant, fresh writing (copy), pictures or infographics for your target customers.
  • Copy should always be reader-friendly.
  • No misspellings or poor grammar. Yes, the search engines downgrade for this.

 

WebPage Titles

Page titles, letting customers know what the webpage does 

  • Relevant title makes it easy to understand for both the search engines and visitors what kind of information the webpage carries.
  • Use relevant and best performing keywords to create an attractive and appealing webpage title.

Meta Descriptions

SERP text to let users understand what information the webpage serves.

  • 3rd most important thing that Google includes in snippet while displaying SERPs against a search term.
  • Create interactive descriptions of the use of potential keywords and CTA.
  • Helps your visitors to connect with you easily to avail your services.

Meta Tags

Some of the most popular SEO Meta Tags include:

  •  Description
  •  Keywords
  •  Robots
  •  Author
  •  Viewport
  •  Language
  •  Site verification and many more.

URL Structure

URLs are the address
of your pages. 

 

Well-written, neat, and clean URL(s) rank well and are visible more in search engines against the relevant search terms. 

Page Headings

Headings are great to
attract the user’s eyes. 

                                                    Headings lead your visitors to your products and services. Well structured headings help your visitors decide whether to stay or move on in seconds

A picture is worth 14%

 

Images are a great way to showcase your products and service as well as create engagement with your readers or visitors.

 

Page Redirections

Permanently or
temporarily redirect
your pages.

                                              Use redirects efficiently to forward your visitors to the correct page and increase the SEO score of your website.

Site speed

Feel the need for speed

An important factor that can affect SEO performance. If not optimized, your website can lose visitors and potential customers. Try to keep your page loading time less than 3 seconds. 

Backlinks or incoming links to a webpage are connections to other pages. Search engines like Google rate these links. The better quality links, the better your search ranking.
