  • Know what keywords will help your clients sites get found by potential customers through search and align your data with your content strategy to serve better pages to organic search visitors. Integrating these 2 practices and making it a part of your monthly tasks is the best way to do audience adaptation.
  • TIP: Do an internal site search (or Google site: search) for promising or newly discovered keywords, and assess if the displayed page(s) will match the intent of possible searchers.
  • NOTE: 2 ways to a steady growth in organic traffic: build more indexed pages that will get searched and/or build more authority signals to increase existing pages rankings.

  • Find the sites most linkable assets.
  • Check out the pages with the most links, social shares, referral/organic traffic and conversions.
  • Make improvements to high value pages (in terms of contents depth, design, CTAs and internal links pointing to them).
  • Linker Outreach find and reach out to the sites/people who have linked and shared your competitors similar content in the past.
  • Check if they have content types that can easily be redistributed (videos, podcasts, images, slide presentations, ebooks, etc.).
  • Repurpose or distribute these content assets widely. In this case, we distributed the podcasts in several podcast directories for more links, mentions and audience building http://www.podcast411.com/page2.html

  • You can read more about this approach here: http://kaiserthesage.com/increase- search-traffic/ Determine variations of search queries that are sending highly qualified and engaged traffic to the site (often keyword variations that your clients havent primarily targeted for the existing pages/posts). Re-optimize the pages/posts to match and be ranked/served on those long-tail searches.
  • Compare # of pages on sitemap vs. Googles index Find URL parameters that are being indexed Assess sites overall content quality (length, substance, and usability). Export landing pages performance data from GA, and assess pages with low engagement rate.
  • Review sites link data and filter those that use exact match anchor texts. Filter those that have decent DA (and see if its possible to modify these links anchor texts). Remove & disavow manipulative and low quality links.
  • Download the sites sitemap in Excel and populate each listed URL their designated Title Tags (using Niels Bosma SEO excel plugin) Consolidate redundant pages containing or covering almost the same topic. Start optimizing for entities through brand mention building, using more nouns/affinities in your writing, and basically writing content for users (using natural language).
  • Because in this line of work, we always have to prepare for the future.
  • Make a list of the top domains and publishers in your clients space (especially those that have high search share).
