“Dwell time” is the amount of time visitors spend on your website and it can affect SEO ranking. When you provide useful content, visitors tend to stay longer on your website to consume the information and therefore increase the dwell time. By correctly using header tags in the following order H1, H2, H3, H4 all the way to H6 (if necessary) when inputting copy, you’re helping crawlers navigate each page of your site easily and understand its content. Heading tags are also a great way to break up the copy on your page to make it more readable for your visitors. If your content fails to provide your users with any added value or to engross them, it will not help to
acquire leads and/or customers. It is impossible to predict how people will search for content and which
keywords they will use to do so. So, it is advisable to create content that can fully satisfy the users’ needs.
It is not just about the quantity (huge amounts of text); it’s more about the relevance of the content to
potential searches. The more fresh, engaging and authoritative content on your website the better regarded it will be by search engines.
Have you considered why it’s important to have quality outbound links from your website?
Buying backlinks can and does work, however, there’s a substantial risk involved if you buy low quality ones and/or from people who openly sell them. If their website gets penalised, you’re in trouble too. The purchase cycle can sometimes involve a large number of clicks. If anyone guarantees you page 1 ranking on Google within a three-month timespan, run for the hills. Provide high-quality content on your pages, especially your homepage. This is the single most important thing to do. If your pages contain useful information, their content will attract many visitors and entice webmasters to link to your site.
Links are not at all the same
Don’t let ego fuel your obsession with keyword rankings. And remember that your personal search experience is not necessarily what your prospective customers see. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of generating more organic (i.e. free, natural) traffic from sites like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Search engines also assess, in great detail, the
technical aspects of your website. For example,
how quickly the site loads plays a major role in your
website ranking. Search engines also take into
account how accessible your server is. Because,
ultimately, Google and other search engines want
to provide the best possible search results. So, the
aim is to guide visitors to sites which work well, and
which can always be accessed and used. SEO isn’t an exact science. Unfortunately, Google hasn’t given us a comprehensive list of ranking factors. Considering that Google has around 200 major ranking factors, and as many as 10,000 sub-signals, we can’t possibly know every single aspect of their algorithm.
How do you know what matters and what doesn't?
Search engines want publishers to show the same content to the search engine as is shown to users I think it's good to have lots of content on the website given the 'long tail' nature of searchers' keyword queries. Gone are the days of keyword stuffing. Sentences actually need to make sense now. Optimise your website by ensuring that any published content is easy to read and digest. Natural keyword inclusion is acceptable, but make the readers your first priority, not the keywords. Gaz Hall, from SEO Hull, had the following to say: "In a Searchmetrics 2016 study into ranking factors, there was an “extremely high” correlation between social signals and Google rankings. However, this couldn’t be accredited to the algorithm, but rather to the “overlap between brand websites performing strongly in social networks and being allocated top positions by Google.”"
Drive traffic to a particular page of your website
Like desktop content, mobile pages need to load fast. Slow loading pages rank lower in Google results. Google has a handy tool called PageSpeed Insights that will tell you how fast your pages are on both mobile and desktop browsers. Helping search engines know what your site’s about at a quick glance is where a sitemap and metadata play a crucial role. When it comes to choosing keywords, it’s important that they are not too specific or too broad. One of the most common problems for webmasters who run
both mobile and desktop versions of a site is that the mobile
version of the site appears for users on a desktop computer, or
that the desktop version of the site appears when someone
accesses it on a mobile device.
