I have already reviewed this little book by Caimin Do Some Work Jones favourably, but I would like to bring your attention to a helpful chapter on “SEO- Friendly URL’s. This is for the benefit or raising your rankings in searches by search engines and for the people searching too. Remember everything should be as relevant as possible to the content. There are so many nuggets of information, I would like to share some more:
Search engines and People prefer descriptive URL’s; rather than URL’s that end with random letters and numbers. Newer versions of WordPress automatically change this for you, or you can adjust the permalinks. For full details refer to the chapter in the book.
Also check the visibility of your web-pages, if you type in your website name and repeat with www before your site name, it should redirect to the same URL otherwise you are likely to be penalized by search engines for duplicate content as it looks as though you are spamming with pages duplicated.
Your post slugs should be short and snappy, both brief and to the point, for the benefit of search engines and for people searching. If you have a WordPress website it is simple to reduce the size of the slug when you create a new page. There is an edit button at the top of the page which you can use to alter the slug, putting back the hyphens between the words you choose. So instead of the automatic trail of a page description you can edit the slug to a very relevant, couple of words or so. Click the OK and you will have a much more friendly page title.
All these little tips will help your readers and search engine rankings alike, whatever your online business. However if you are just starting-out online and you want a simple method to help you learn the techniques of online marketing, I would suggest affiliate marketing, with the help of a coach or mentor. Your mentor will produce the products and deliver them to your customers for you. You will have the use of marketing tools provided, like banners, emails and often sales pages.
Make it easier for yourself, ovoid information overload and enjoy the support of your mentor and entrepreneur community. Not only that but you will learn quicker tip using a tried and tested method and you can earn whilst you learn the techniques.
So whatever your online business, I hope you find the tips useful, for further information and tips there is a book list below to help you grow your business. Have a very successful future and make 2016 a year to remember!
