On-Page SEO

Make sure yours is well organized with a defined Header (H1, H2, and H3). Utilize Links: Because links are such powerful sources of added value and credibility, be sure to sprinkle in both internal and external linking throughout your site.

Quality Content

Quality content means better SEO. Prioritize content that is informative, compelling, and well-written for search engines. Your articles should be longer and provide a lot of details that answer questions your audience may have. Continually update your content to maintain its credibility and ensure freshness.

Analyzing Performance

Regularly analyzing your content performance is necessary for continuous improvement. Monitor your content performance regularly using analytics tools offered by digital platforms for capturing performances (views, engagement, and revenue).

Social Media Insights

Social media platforms provide native insights tools to assess the effectiveness of your content. Take note of metrics such as reach, engagement, and followers to understand what your audience prefers. Take these learnings and make them relevant to your social strategy to help drive an engaged audience.

Algorithm Changes

The algorithms of digital platforms are often updated, changing the way content is prioritized when ranked or displayed on these platforms. This way, you will always keep up with the changes and tune your content strategy. For instance, if a platform is focusing more on video content, you can work with adding videos as part of your strategy.

Testing out New Formats

Don't hesitate to test a new video content type or feature. For example, a new feature in a social media platform such as Instagram Reels or LinkedIn Stories has a place for your content strategy. It may allow you to find new ways of getting your clicks and higher earnings for advertisers.
