SEO from Cumbria
This post is our look at what we think is going to be important for your website in 2017 when it comes down to Google and rankings, and what to put your time and resources into.
Here at Compute we have been pushing Mobile Friendly, Responsive Websites since long before it was required to rank better. This was to give your visitors the best user experience on every device. Now Google is actively testing a Mobile First Index, which means it will look at the mobile version of your website first for ranking signals, then secondly look at the desktop version if no mobile version is found.
To put it simply it is the opposite of SEO work that helps get you ranked higher in search engines, and is very bad for your website.
There are many reasons why your business should be using social media, but here is my top 3.
1 – Posting on Social Media can help your organic search ranking.
If you’ve spent time and money creating content for your website or blog, it’s seems a shame if it’s not shared.
Sharing content on social media channels increases the chance of your content ranking higher. When people like, share or re-tweet content on social media channels search engines use those signals to determine the relevance and authority of your websites content.
I launched a new SEO report just over a week ago, and i never thought it would be as popular as it has been so far.
Within the first 7 days over 50 businesses have requested the new In-Depth SEO Report from me, and over 80% of these are local.
So that’s a lot of local businesses out there who have seen the value in the SEO Report and have hopefully started drawing up plans for changes in their website and social media strategy to help them gain on their competitors.
You may be wondering what the term NAP stands for and why you should care. Well if you are wanting your website to rank well in Local Searches then NAP is important.
