SEOAt R2integrated, we often get a lot of questions on how Google looks at your site, what ranking signals should you or should you not focus/worry about. So, here’s a quick and dirty list to help get you started.

Focus on the reason why people would link to you. Ask the following questions:

  • Why would visitors seek you out in the first place?

  • What valuable content do you have on your site

  • Why would visitors find your site compelling and/or memorable?


Quick Expert Tips:

  • Make sure your content is crawlable & reachable via quality links

  • Create links with good URL structure

  • Create good titles

  • Research the keywords people are using to search and get to your site, then incorporate those keywords into the content on your page

  • Create copy that flows naturally. Read it out loud- let others read it. It should flow naturally and fluidly


All in all…Concentrate on creating a site that is compelling and rewarding for visitors, as this is what Google is looking for when returning results.
