Common SEO Mistakes to Correct Now

Optimize Your Website with Professional Digital Content  
The majority of people accessing the internet through a browser start their journey in the same place: Google. Whether they are looking for funny cat videos or the nearest dental clinic, Google offers a gateway to content that can end up leaving your business behind. If you are not listed on the first page of search results, it is very unlikely that a steady flow of organic leads will be coming through your site.

Are you are beginning to explore the benefits, necessity, and intricacies of SEO for your company website? Consider the following common errors and work with content writers who specialize in SEO to ensure your new content contributes to your search ranking.

Here are three common errors that can be fixed today to make your website search-friendly:

  • Duplicate Content – If you thought you were saving time and money by copying and pasting your content writing across pages, it is time to rethink your approach. Plagiarizing other sources or duplicating your own content will only hurt your SEO strategy, so ensure you are publishing original content across the board. Need help? Experienced SEO writers at MintCopy can provide services across North America that keep user experience and Google algorithms top of mind.  
  • HTML Issues – Little details on your website that become an afterthought for most business owners can play a big role in making your website seem illegitimate or less relevant in search results. Title tags, meta descriptions, and broken links will negatively impact your ranking. Perform an audit and work with expert freelance writers or a professional copywriting agency if you need help refreshing outdated or missing content.
  • Images and Videos – Do not overlook the other content types, beyond copywriting, on your website for a higher search engine ranking. Add compressed images whenever possible to enhance your posts. Not only will they be more engaging for readers, who can quickly grow tired of dense copy, but they can also pay off in search. File naming is important and it should be descriptive, with the keyword listed first.  Scale your files for faster load times and add captions for easier skimming. Alt text makes your website accessible and can also improve SEO keyword results.

If you’ve done a Google search recently, you’ve come across some of the newer features of search. For some searches, videos are getting more notice for more interactive and informative information for users. Another addition to search is the rich FAQ snippets or “people also ask” boxes. Google’s “mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Understanding that Google and other search engines aren’t created for your online marketing efforts can help you provide the right content to maximize your SEO strategy. FAQs were once an afterthought. Today, FAQs can boost your organic search efforts in multiple ways. Almost every page has the potential to function like an FAQ page.

Hungry? Order online and get whatever you’re craving. But first, you’ll check the reviews and ratings, won’t you? Shopping online for your favourite clothing brand? What are others saying about the new Fall Collection? Of course, that matters! According to Inc.com, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. Most businesses try to do everything they can to avoid bad reviews for that reason. Unfortunately, feedback, both positive and negative, is an inevitable outcome of running a business. Negative feedback is uncomfortable, but it’s also an opportunity to improve. You’re not likely to get those perfect 5-star reviews from every customer, every time. So, remember that you will never please everyone, but you can strive to please many. If you have a customer complaint or criticism, take the trouble to find out what went wrong. Take those negative reviews and use them to create quality content that shows customers you care.

You're staring at a blank page. You and your team want the best content for your landing page. It must engage. It must convert. It must really stand out. But most of all, it must resonate with your audience. So, where do you begin? Here's a tip: The best copy on landing pages reads like a customer wrote it. "This pain relief cream made my shoulder pain disappear. I slept like a baby!' is your customer writing your landing page headline. It will work much better than, "Try our quick, effective pain relief cream—buy now for 10% off".
