SEO Terms to Know

Let’s start by defining a few SEO terms you may not be familiar with: 

  • KPI (Key Performance Indicators) - Measurable value that indicates how well an activity is achieving a goal
  • Query - Words typed in a search bar
  • Ranking - Ording search results by relevance to query

  • Alt text - Alternative text is the text in HTML code that describes the images on web pages

Search engines like Google and Bing value the regular addition of fresh content for websites. Businesses who create a blog content plan benefit from continually providing fresh, unique content for search engines and users alike. Blogs are a great way to generate consistent quality content for your customers and visitors to your website while also serving your organic search needs. Some of the ways your blogs can contribute to your business’s SEO strategy are:

  • Creating an opportunity to incorporate more granular content on your website
  • Focus on more long-tail search phrases
  • Chance to create local content or cover timely topics such as events taking place at or near your business
  • Provide visitors with updates on new industry announcements, innovations, products, and practices
  • Incorporate opportunities to generate answers for “how to” language on your website as voice search continues to grow
  • Drive users deeper into your website and assist search engines in locating additional, relevant content on your site by utilizing internal links (links from blog content to additional pages on your site). A high number of internal links pointing to a specific page alerts Google that the page is important
  • Optimizing on-page content, image alternate tags, meta descriptions, and category tags to get the most value out of the content you are producing
