Search Engines got smarter. Since paid ad campaigns funded their existence, search engines like Google started putting more effort into having artificial intelligence read websites and web pages and incorporated algorithms to associate the content with what the world searched for. For example, if we were looking for places that delivered pizza 3 years ago and searched the term "Pizza," What would come up would be completely different than today's search results? About 3 years ago, pizza prep tables, pizza equipment, pizza recipes, and pizza delivery were what would be scattered on the rankings of that one search term. Over the past 3 years, search algorithms and strategies have changed. If we searched the same pizza term, different results would come up based on what the search engine thinks we might want based on past search results and clicks.

To start, each page should have a foundation. That foundation is what answers the queries of what people search for on the internet. Once you identify what people are looking for, you create the content for that and move up from there.

Try following this easy beginner's guide because when you follow this step-by-step and do this correctly, your pages will soon place on the highest rankings of search engines to be seen by potential clients and customers.

  1. Create Compelling Content - This is content that answers what people are looking for.
  2. Keyword Discovery - Optimize your page by discovering the keywords used to find pages like the one you are creating.
  3. Create Engaging Content - After your compelling content is written and your keyword discovery is finished, you should start creating content that goes alongside this content and links relevant internal pages.
  4. UI/UX Optimization - UI stands for User Interface, and UX means User Experience. You want to streamline these both together so your user can find the information they need quickly.
  5. UI/UX On-Page SEO - This is where you work on loading speeds, and ease of use.
