 4 Things You Can Do To Spruce Up Your SEO Campaign This Spring

Spring is coming. Bright green blades of grass are beginning to peek up from under leaves on the ground, bulging flower buds are preparing to burst, bringing radiant flowers back into the world, and along with all this new life comes a feeling of rejuvenation. It’s time to spruce things up for your online business. Here are 5 SEO tips you can do this spring to add growth, color, and life to your organic marketing campaign.

1. Dust Off That Blog

The cliché “Content is King” can be cast in many different lights, but in this case, we will view it from an SEO perspective. Regularly adding content to your website’s blog shows search engines like Google that your business is alive. A stagnant site is boring, and there is no reason for users to keep returning if you don’t have something new and exciting to offer each time. Where do you start? Well, you need to start by adding 500 words of content to your blog a week, but make it a goal to hit 2,000 by the time spring starts. Do you need some ideas for adding content? Search for blogs in your niche. You don’t need to copy them, but looking at their actions will most likely spur some ideas.



2. Shake Out Those Old Social Media Accounts

Yeah, I know. You already have your social media accounts set up, but are you using them? Social Media signals have slightly more effect on SEO than in the past, so they should. If you stop and think about it – links from social profiles to your website are backlinks. The only question is, how much authority do they pass? Why does Google try to figure that out? Let’s make it a goal to start posting more!

Post once a week to start. Then, after a bit, bump it up to twice a week. Before you know it, you’ll think, “Oh, I should post this!” whenever you see an article or meme you think your customers would like. If you want to save time while managing multiple accounts, use a social media management tool like Hot Suite. It can come in handy when you want to simultaneously submit to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

3. Clean Up That Clutter On Your Landing Pages

How does landing page optimization improve SEO, you ask? This reason won’t surprise you. It will make perfect sense. Improving engagement on your landing pages directly affects your bounce rate (BR) and click-through rate (CTR), which are pretty much the same thing, but that’s for another day. Decreasing your bounce rate tells search engines that people like your website. In the end, search engines are all about the user experience. Why should they keep sending them back if they feel like users are not finding what they are looking for? Using a tool like Crazy Egg to do A/B testing to fix roadblocks, boring titles, and poor-performing pages in general. With all the testing you’ll be doing, you’ll likely increase sales, too, so it’s a win-win.

4. Lastly, Plant Some SEO Seeds

In this case, SEO seeds are inbound links that serve a dual purpose. The first is that they are placed solely to drive potential traffic to your site, and the second is that they are put on trusted sites that may pass authority to boost your natural search rankings. Extra Update.
