As marketers, we strive to drive traffic to your website where a wealth of information about your company, organization, products, or events is just waiting to be discovered. You want visitors to find you, learn more about what you offer, and then move on to take some type of action – like buying, calling, or donating.

5 SEO Basics for Your Quality Content

By Pat Heffernan on 4/20/15 10:00 AM

 

Whew! You’re exhausted. You’ve just finished a sprint to get your mobile-friendly site ready for Google’s latest change. But don’t stop now.

If the writing isn’t solid and useful for your customers and prospects, then SEO tweaks won’t help. If your site design isn’t mobile-friendly, nothing here can overcome that basic flaw. But you, dear reader, have already taken care of ensuring writing and technical quality so let’s focus on how to enhance what you’ve already done.
