How was your Valentine's Day?
My highlight was cleaning up the office and ditching the pile of junk that seems to accumulate when my family mistake my desk for their dumping ground. (Such romance.)
A few years ago, in honour of the day of love, I put together a Valentine's playlist designed to get you a bit of Google lovin'.
Here's my Spotify playlist of six songs to spice up your SEO.
The Bee Gees
When it comes to optimising your website, using the right keywords in all the right places is the best way to woo the search engine rankings.
2. Linking With You
After hearing the lyrics to this song, I'm convinced MØ is a wounded SEO who’s been burned too many times by dodgy backlink attacks and endless no-follows from high authority sites.
It’s easy to think you don’t have anything to blog about. Maybe you think it's all been said. But YOU haven't said it. So write that post. Be BRAVE. Let the words fall out (or get a copywriter to help you with the words).
4. Don't Stop Me Now
Site speed is one of the signals used by the Google algorithm to rank web pages. So you want to make sure your site loads like a racing car (passing by like Lady Godiva).
5. Keep It Comin' Love
KC and The Sunshine Band
Don’t blow the search engines off and cool the romance by leaving the bots thirsting for more. Update your website regularly and stay active on your social channels. Keep it comin’ love.
6. You Can't Hurry Love
I know you might need Google love to ease your mind, but you can’t hurry love. SEO is a long game. You need to keep working it. Remember mama said, 'Google love don’t come easy.'
