The starting point is a fast and optimally designed website.

SEO audit should be the first step rather than keyword research. Foremost, prepare the website for search engines in all the way. SEO audit provides any technical error or warning to fix. After fixing all the SEO issues, research for keywords and then optimize according to the keywords chosen.

Technical errors are provided by an SEO audit. After addressing all SEO difficulties, conduct keyword research and then optimise for the selected keywords. To simplify your keyword list, use Google Keyword Planner. You may estimate the search volume and traffic for keywords you're thinking about using Google's Keyword Planner. Then, utilise Google Trends to fill in the gaps using the knowledge you gained from Keyword Planner.

The first step in this process is to understand how search engine optimization works and what you should do to make it work for you. SEO is a powerful tool to boost your website's ranking and drive traffic. It's important to remember that even the best marketing and SEO won't sell you anything if the content is bad. In the past, posting content with keywords was the standard. Today, many online businesses use blogs and content to boost their rankings.

One way to find the right keywords is to research them on Google. It's important to know what people are searching for, and you can optimize your blog posts and landing pages around those keywords. Once you know the keywords, you need to write quality content for each one. For this reason, keyword research is crucial when it comes to SEO. Without keyword research, you won't be able to get your site to rank for the keywords that your readers type into Google.

Another important part of SEO is the HTML of your site. Your site's HTML needs proper tags, descriptions, and headers. You don't need to be a web developer to optimize your site for search engines, but you should have a basic knowledge of HTML so you can edit your content. For example, if you want your website to rank for homemade mac and cheese, you can try searching for a recipe on Google.

SEO Audit than keyword research

Personally, I think it's like deciding whether to clean your room first or figure out where all the clutter is coming from! In my humble opinion, starting with an SEO audit sounds like the way to go. It's like doing a health check-up for your website, you know? Fixing those pesky technical errors upfront can really set a solid foundation for everything else. And thanks for the tip about Google Keyword Planner!
