I’m talking about the article “29 SEO Tips When Building a Website” (https://www.intra-designs.com/29-tips-on-seo-when-building-a-web-site.html).
Today I’m starting with:
#16: Always remember that images must have ALT information listed.
Search engines have no idea what an image is so they ignore it. They look for the text and the alt tag instead. You can put as much information as you want in an alt tag, but don’t be spammy.
Every app has its own way to put alt tags (go to the full article for an image of how WordPress does it).
Once you go into the media area of WordPress, click the image you want, and the information will show up on the right. Fill in the title and alt, don’t fill in the caption unless you want that text showing up on the page. The description area is optional.
#20: Put keywords in headings, subheadings and alt text.
Search engines rank the importance of keywords depending upon where they are on your site. The least important spot is the alt tag of images (but that doesn’t mean you can ignore this area).
The most important is the H1 or main heading of your page. The second most important is an H2 heading and so on.
27: Link to other websites you trust.
Only link to websites you trust, because your clients may click on that link. That can be important. I’m going to go over buying web links later on, but if you just send your link out to everybody what if it’s somebody that has a website that is fundamentally different from you? if someone has a website that’s fundamentally different than what you believe in, you might get clients that have different core values than you have.
And I don’t really go into this a lot but finding clients that have the same core values as you do will generally mean you’re going to be happier and your clients are going to be happier.
So linking to sites that you trust and people that you trust are going to help you get more of the clients that you’re interested in having.
