There are a lot of myths about how to “optimize” your website for search engines. Notice I put “optimize” in double-quotes. Here’s a truth that will make some paid SEO companies shake in their boots: The real trick to SEO is just building a better website in general. That’s it. Nothing technical, nothing “behind-the-scenes” you have to install or tweak, and your website is just a platform for you to impress your possible clients.
Building a Better Website
Google searches throughout websites to identify how relevant, easy to navigate, and newly updated to rank its SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Overall, there is no need to pay for an SEO company if you use a good website builder. Pipeline ROI provides all of our Real Estae Pros with websites specifically designed to obtain high SEO status.
Here are some of the SEO hacks we follow:
Pipeline ROI designs all websites to be mobile responsive, and avoids slow downloading objects (EX: large picture files)
The URL should match the main focus on your website. For realtors, “www.[yourname]realestate.com” is perffect! The URL does not have to be too creative, or unique, just match your content as best as possible.
Google loves freshly updated websites. Adding new blogs to your website will not only create a higher SEO status, but will also drive potential clients to your website. Make sure your blog is relevant to the clients you want to reach, and at least 250 words.
Blogging can be hard to start that is why Pipeline ROI has written these helpful blogs to get you started:
