5 Ridiculously Easy SEO Tips

Welcome to my ridiculously easy SEO tips, so easy I thought perhaps everyone else already knows them? But it took me almost a year to figure these out and learn them, so I thought I would pass on the love to you guys! You can thank me later!

Google Autocomplete

This one I learnt from Fashion Influx recent post on SEO. Honestly I had never even contemplated that simply searching something on google could help, hence the blog title ridiculously easy SEO tips!

So here’s the deal, you want to blog about a certain topic but aren’t sure what to call it or what your key word/s should be. Simply google the topic or the word that’s the most important and it should come up with suggestions of what other people have searched and what the most searched topics are relating to it. Basically telling you what people want and will look for, and essentially guaranteeing a searchable title/keyword.

Make Use of Backlinks

This is something I always knew was good but purely for people finding your blog through other sites. Turns out, there’s other benefits from getting good quality backlinks – I’m pretty sure leaving comments on other people blogs don’t count here but not 100%. So basically, as well as helping to get you ‘out there’ good quality back links tell Google that you’re an ‘authority’ in your field and essentially makes them more likely to bring you up in more general searches like ‘fashion blogger’ and ‘stylist’.

Check Your Website Speed

For my third ridiculously easy SEO tip, I’m going to tell you something that I myself should have already done . . talk about not taking your own advice! Google hates slow websites, or so I’ve heard. You can test your web speed here, and it should give you tips on what you can do to speed it up!

5 Ridiculously easy SEO tips

Write More – I Said They Were Easy SEO Tips

Your posts should ideally have at least 300 words, obviously I know not all blog posts do, mine don’t, but it really helps for SEO. Obviously don’t write 300 words of drivel, make sure it’s interesting and engaging, but seriously content is key. Write as much as you can whilst keeping it interesting!

Link Back to Your Own Content

I find it hard to do this and have to constantly remind myself but honestly one of the most easy SEO tips (whilst also being self serving) is to link back to your own content. So for example, this post is giving some helpful blogging tips so I could link back to this post about getting started with your blog or this post about how to build your instagram following and hopefully if you find this interesting you’ll want to read them! This doesn’t necessarily help with Google but it helps to lower your bounce rate which does help with google.

        Definitely do it! It would be great as I’ve been reading a fair few blogger how to’s and I have enjoyed this the most as it was written well (the amount I have found with bad spelling and grammar giving out advice :/), friendly and it gave good tips that were relevant and real, from someone who clearly knows what they are talking about. I find some are full of really basic, obvious info whereas this was really useful 😀 Thanks again!

    The Google Autocomplete tip is something i haven’t even thought of! I recently did a 6 tip seo post too but included different ones to yours. There are so many ways to improve your seo but there is always something new to learn 🙂

    How did I never think of Google autocomplete? That’s such an obvious idea and it never even crossed my mind. Definitely going to start using it from now on.
