That’s why SEO is such an important part of your content marketing strategy.
You might think you know a lot about SEO, but learning how to apply the basics can be very useful. It’s a good foundation for learning even more advanced SEO techniques.

We’re going to go over each of these topics in further detail. Let’s get started.
1. Search engine rankings
For SEO to work, you need to rank higher than your competitors. That means improving your site’s visibility on the search engines.
There are a few ranking factors that directly impact your chances of ranking, but the easiest way to rank higher is to improve your user experience (UX). So, you need to make your site easy to use and navigate.
You should also make sure that you’re optimizing your website for mobile. That means making your site accessible on mobiles and making sure that your website loads fast.
Let’s take a look at an example of how you can improve your UX and ranking potential.
Example of a website that’s well optimized for mobile.
If you’re struggling to get mobile users and you’re not sure what you should be optimizing for, consider a mobile-first approach.
Mobile-first indexing is a ranking factor. Google looks at how your site is optimized for mobile and how it’s easy to navigate. If you have a mobile-first approach, it’s more likely that Google will rank your site higher on mobile.
2. How to optimize content
Now that you know how to rank higher and how to improve your UX, you want to optimize your content to be the best possible.
It’s important to optimize all the different elements of your content. But one of the most important elements of your content is your title tag.
When you optimize your title tag, you’re optimizing the title of your content. But it’s also important to optimize your subheadings and your body copy.
You should make sure that all the different elements of your blog posts are optimized, but it’s the title tag that’s the most important.
In addition to the title tag, you should also consider your meta description. You’ll see this in search results, and it’s important to optimize that too.
3. How to optimize your site architecture
One of the most important parts of your website is website architecture. This should be implemented consistently. It can be very difficult to get this to be optimized consistently because different people are using your website at different times.
For example, if you have a blog, then that blog might be updated every few weeks. But other parts of your website, like your contact page, might be updated more frequently.
This is why you need to make sure that your website architecture is consistent and that it’s easy for people to navigate.
Another important aspect of your website architecture is page speed. When you optimize your website’s speed, you’ll ensure that your customers can find everything that they need as quickly as possible.
4. How to optimize your site for mobile
As we’ve mentioned, Google makes important decisions based on user behavior. That means that to rank higher, you need to make your site mobile-friendly.
That means that you need to make sure that your site is responsive. It also means that you need to make sure that you’re optimizing your site for mobile first.
Let’s take a look at an example of a mobile-friendly site.
Example of a mobile-friendly website.
If you have mobile-friendly site, it’s more likely that your customers will visit your website through their mobile device.
You should optimize your site for mobile, as well as all the other aspects of your site. For example, make sure that your site loads fast, and that your contact page is responsive and simple to navigate.
5. How to find keywords that are relevant to your audience
One of the best ways to find relevant keywords is to use content marketing.
If you’re using content marketing, you’re basically using your blog to find relevant keywords. You’ll be able to find keywords that are related to your audience and you’ll be able to rank for those keywords too.
Let’s take a look at an example of how you can use content marketing to find relevant keywords.
Example of using a content marketing campaign to find new keywords.
If you’re using a content marketing campaign (which we recommend), then it’s important that you’re keyword-optimizing your content.
For example, if you’re using content marketing, then you should make sure that you’re optimizing all the different elements of your content. But one of the most important elements of your content is your title tag.
If you’re using a content marketing campaign, you should make sure that your title tag is optimized, but it’s important that you also optimize the subheadings and the body copy.
6. How to find quality backlinks
A backlink is a link to your site from a different site. Typically, if you have a website, then you’ll get backlinks from other websites. But, if you want to get a lot of backlinks, then you should consider building backlinks.
If you want to get better at SEO, then you need to learn how to optimize your site. That means knowing how to optimize your website content, your site architecture, and you need to know how to optimize your content for mobile.
