Set up or improve your own site structure With your structure, you can influence which articles will rank higher than others in Google. After this course, you’ll be able to set up your own site structure, or improve the one you already have.
The technical side of SEO
Improve your site speed If your site is slow, your visitors might leave before they’ve even seen what you have to offer. And Google punishes slow sites with a lower ranking. We’ll show you how to measure site speed and how to influence it.
Make your site more secure About 60 – 80% of hacks are done for SEO purposes. When sites are hacked, hackers can insert spammy links that Google punishes you for. This will make your rankings drop. And it’s not easy to climb back up. There are a few simple things you can do to avoid being hacked: we’ll show you!
Look beyond your own website (off-page SEO) Too often, SEO is restricted to on-page SEO, but there’s a lot more out there:
Find out how to make other sites link to you, so Google sees you deserve a higher ranking (link building)
Keep your audience engaged with the right emails at the right time (email marketing)
Discover how social media can get you even more traffic (social media marketing)
Plus: outsmart your competition by going beyond SEO When your site is pleasant and easy to use for everyone, it will show in your numbers (bounce rate, average time on page, conversion rates …). Google likes these numbers and will reward you in your rankings.
Make your visitors feel at home (user experience or UX) User experience or UX has little to do with pretty colors. It’s about helping your visitor use your website in the most intuitive way. We’ll give you a few quick tips.
Open the door for everyone (accessibility) Everyone should be able to easily use your website, including people with an impairment. And it really doesn’t take much! With a few simple adjustments, you can improve your accessibility significantly.
Get more customers or subscribers (conversion rate optimization) With good SEO, you’ll get the right traffic to your website. But optimization shouldn’t stop there. What do you want your visitors to do once they’re on your website? Buy, subscribe, click? We’ll show you how to let your visitors do exactly that.
