How to Do SEO Yourself with Karen Callahan
Manage episode 344741650 series 3025227
You’ve heard about SEO and how it can really drive traffic to your website, but you keep putting it off. SEO can seem overwhelming, overly technical, and can feel like there is too much to learn. However, SEO can actually be easy to learn and implement in your business. SEO may also be the most effective marketing tool in your toolbox, and one you can do yourself with little to no cost.
In this episode of the Sassy Strategist podcast, host Kim Dawson interviews Karen Callahan, SEO Strategist, Trainer, and WordPress Developer, who shares her tips and strategies for getting found on search engines like Google. Kim and Karen discuss blog writing and content creation for maximum SEO, the do’s and don'ts of guest blogging, and whether or not it matters which website platform you choose (Squarespace, Wix, Wordpress, etc.). They geek out over SEO and you won’t believe what you learn.
* Guest posting is for creating awareness, not SEO.
* You can boost SEO on your website by writing on a few topics from multiple perspectives.
* SEO tools and plugins don’t do SEO for you! They simply evaluate and make recommendations.
* The copy you put “above the fold” on your website should be written with SEO in mind.
* It may be better to drive traffic to web pages other than your home page.
