When it comes to SEO, it seems there’s always a little confusion. You hear rumors of what works, what doesn’t and how you can master the art of SEO to see your name in lights... or at least on page one of a search engine!
Recently, we came across an article, 17 SEO Myths You Should Leave Behind in 2013, from our friends at Hubspot. Rebecca Churt, SEO Marketing Manager at Hubspot knows her stuff and we thought these myths are ones we should all be aware of as we look at improving our SEO for the new year.
Here are just a few of our favorites and solutions we provide as Real Estate Virtual Assistants to ensure you’re getting the most out of your SEO in 2013!
- While we all want to be on the first page, it’s interesting to know that being on a following page can still allow for the same amount of click throughs! We’ve had clients become discouraged that “SEO isn’t working” for them because they don’t find themselves on the first page. They’ll then give up on their blog or other SEO driving forces, because they don’t “see the results.” If you don’t find yourself on the first page- that’s okay! Your blog, social media and website's SEO can still be hard at work for you!
- There are companies out there who will claim to be able to build up your SEO and promise you first page status... all you have to do is pay them large sums of money for them to hide SEO throughout your website. Of course you can use key words throughout the content on your website, but there’s still work for you (or your Real Estate Virtual Assistant) to do!
- Need a Social Media Strategy? Let us help you create one! We’ve done this for many clients who are looking to boost their Social Media, but aren’t quite sure where to start. We would love to help you succeed with your Social Media SEO!
- As Real Estate Virtual Assistants, we are daily writing content for clients’ website, blog and social media. Our content is rich and, while we do use keywords, they make sense to the reader without sounding forced!
