SEO Strategies & Link Building

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
  • SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. To get visitors to your website, there are things you can do to optimize the site for search engines like Google.
  • SEO involves the strategies and tactics used to increase the number of visitors to a website by increasing its search ranking. 
  • A well around approach to SEO involves many things: coding best-practices, keyword research, content development strategies, link-building strategies, and more.
Keyword Research
  • Keyword research is the process of finding what words and phrases your target audience is looking for and how often they are doing so.
  • Ideally, you want to target searches with high volume and lower competition.
  • Content on the webpage, including titles, headings and body content, should include the target keywords.
Link Building
  • Link building refers to the process of obtaining inbound links (links from other websites to the target site). It is known to be one of the main factors in determining search engine ranking positions.
  • Best SEO practices include building high-quality links from reputable and topically-relevant sources. Spammy links can actually hurt a site's SEO.
  • Learn strategies to build a high-quality link profile in our Digital Marketing & SEO classes.
Technical Optimization
  • For SEO to be successful, the technical aspects of your website needs to be sound
  • Spot technical errors that may be preventing your site from being crawled
  • Uncover, avoid and fix duplicate content issues that hurt your rankings
  • Structure your website to maximize link value and rank other pages

Learn more about SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the practice of using techniques to increase the number of visitors to your website or content on the web by improving its position in search engines. With good SEO practices, your content or site will appear higher in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) on Google or other search engines. To understand SEO, it’s essential to review the different types of SEO and the various terms used in the industry.

  • Keywords - Keywords are the most critical part of SEO and refer to what users, clients, and customers search to find a specific type of content. For example, when looking for an SEO class, you may type “SEO classes in New York” instead of just SEO. The goal of SEO practitioners is to determine which keywords are related to their business and use these keywords on their website and blog to help customers find their content.
  • Organic Search - Organic search refers to search results that don’t include paid content. While it’s more difficult to rank higher in organic search, if you do, the results are advantageous. Companies and individuals rank higher by using keywords effectively in page titles, headings, and throughout their text.
  • Paid Search - Paid search techniques involve paying Google Ads, Bing Ads, or another search engines for premium placement at the top spot of search results related to a specific keyword. Such strategies are useful, but only if you understand how to price your ads. Using paid search requires a thorough understanding of:
    • SEM - Search Engine Marketing (SEM) refers to the techniques you use to appear higher in search engines. Many people use this term to apply exclusively to paid search and not organic search.
    • Pay Per Click (PPC) - a type of SEO campaign in which you spend a specific dollar amount for each person that clicks on your ad
    • Cost Per Click (CPC) - the amount your company will pay for each person that clicks your ad in search results
  • On-Page SEO- the techniques you use on your web content to improve the position in search engines including adding keywords, keyword placement throughout the document, and web design
  • Off-Page SEO - social media, link building, and other methods that are used to drive traffic to your website

While anyone can learn SEO, taking an SEO class will provide you with essential training in which techniques are most effective for you. SEO classes will teach you which tools to use to find keywords, and how to use keywords on your website once you’ve determined the right words to use. You’ll learn other strategies that affect SEO performance, such as having a mobile-friendly website and content that is updated regularly.

Writing SEO-friendly headlines, using images to optimize SEO, and incorporating meta tags are just a few popular strategies you will learn in our one-day SEO workshop. In our more intensive SEO and Digital Marketing classes, you’ll develop an entire SEO strategy and digital marketing campaign.
