What is SEO Marketing ?
Before starting to understand how to do SEO we take a step back and focus on what is SEO or even SEO Marketing. First of all SEO means Search Engine Optimization and is the set of all the techniques used to optimize and index the page of a website. In addition to the techniques, since 2019 the SEO will increasingly focus on the care of linguistic details, in fact Google has created a bot capable of perceiving the linguistic properties of a text, in terms of text quality, relevance, fluency, etc. etc.
The SEO Marketing stems from the need of webmasters to scale positions in the search pages to get noticed because Google has algorithms, constantly updated, which determine whether a page deserves to be classified among the top positions or not.
The main reasoning of Google is to give the best “user experience” to the customer or to find the most exhaustive content in the shortest possible time, therefore it is correct to say that regardless of the techniques we are going to use the contents must always be:
- easily readable
Why is SEO essential? It is essential because you try to think … have you ever gone beyond page 4 of Google? I already know the answer and it’s NO! In fact 99% of people usually arrived at the end of the first page or maximum of the second, request a new question from Google trying to modify the question to find the content they were looking for, correct? Do you recognize yourself? or do you belong to 1% of people?

Search Engine Optimization Techniques
Now let’s see what are the main techniques and suggestions to achieve results in Google’s SERP.
- not just keyoword
- responsive site and amp
- internal link building
- Youtube SEO
- Local SEO
1 – Not just keywords
Until a few years ago, on the web there were websites full of useful keywords to be performing in SEO terms but not very useful to the end user. If, for example, you were looking for a recipe on Italian pizza, they appeared among the first results that did not help to find the information we were looking for but which had been over-optimized with those keywords to appear among the first results.
Obviously Google, as you read at the beginning of the article, has taken steps to fix this problem and now it is no longer possible, risk penalization to perform keyword stuffing or doorway pages or other “shadow” techniques that had the sole purpose of entering the traffic of the first places without giving value.
Today Google awards texts that really add value, rich information texts, we recommend at least 2000 words, which have become mini guides for the customer where they can find information and create a relationship of trust between the reader and the writer.
2 – Responsive site and AMP
The Responsive site on the web is now an almost consolidated reality, it is right to talk about it to make sure that if you are starting to create your website I make sure you can start correctly. A responsive site, as I explained to you a little while ago, is a site that automatically changes based on the device on which you view the site and optimizes it to offer an optimal view of the content to the visitor.
Despite almost all the templates offered by WordPress offer this feature, check that the template chosen for your site has this feature.
In addition to a dynamic site for all Google devices in 2017 has developed an open source HTML framework for mobile devices or AMP. AMP is the acronym of Accelerated Mobile Pages born with the intent to improve the speed of execution of evasion of searches carried out by mobile device. Fortunately this technique is easily implemented by downloading the AMP plugin from WordPress.
Also in AMP mode you can build landing pages, read the faqs here, websites, blogs, e-mail in short, anything with the advantage of having speed and a light and smart coding for the quality of your SEO.
3 Internal Link Building
If we think of the Braveheart movie, links are an immortal element that we can’t do without. The internal links are very important to create paths for the visitor who will be happy to read your article once to spontaneously find other insights.
I used the word spontaneously specifically because it is good to remember that the text must not be filled in an unnatural way with links but must guide the visitor, this activity, if done correctly, significantly reduces the good rate parameter visible on the Google Search Console. The lower rate is more and more means that the visitor stays more time on your page, or for Google your content is relevant and meaningful for the visitor’s experience.
4 Youtube SEO
Did you notice that when you search for information on Google, a video is often proposed as the first search result? Well this is the future … indeed the present. To date, Youtube is the second search engine in the world and over 50% of searches are completed watching a video.
Given the ever-growing data, companies are gearing up to create videos to simplify the search for visitors who prefer to watch a video instead of reading an article, being present on Youtube is fundamental and is an increasingly fashionable strategy among marketers . As with images, videos must also be optimized, so a title and an adequate description are necessary steps to make the traffic fly to your site.
5 Local SEO
The geolocation of your business is another must have that must be implemented on your site especially if your company is a local business. The latest statistics speak of 22% of searches made through Google Map to search for a specific activity. How to do it? Just sign up with your Google account on Google My Business.
