Making your website SEO ready involves optimizing various aspects of your site to improve its visibility and ranking in search engine results. I have to admit this topic is not my favorite, but is important if you want your website to be found by our good friend Google and other search engines.

After brewing my favorite coffee from Peru I decided to put a brief key steps to make your website SEO ready:

SEO analysis

  1. SEO title width: The SEO title has a viewable limit. Under 48 characters should be OK. Don’t make it too short either. Have at least four words. Include the focus keyphrase at the beginning.
  2. Text length: Write at least 300 words for your blog content. Include the focus keyphrase at least 2 times depending on the length of your text.
  3. Meta description length: The length should be from 120 to 156 characters long. Always include the focus keyphrase here.
  4. Key phrase length: Use the recommended maximum of 4 content words.
  5. Internal links: Have at least one internal link. Point it to a relevant content in your website.
  6. Outbound links: Have at least one external link.
  7. Images: Include at least one image with ALT tag using your focus keyphrase.

By following these steps and staying up-to-date with SEO best practices, you can make your website more SEO friendly and improve its visibility in search engine results.

SEO Website Readability

To enhance the ranking of your content, ensure it’s engaging and enjoyable to read. When your audience appreciates your writing, search engines will also do. Here are some steps to follow and make your website readability optimized:

  1. Passive voice: Use enough active voice. The recommended passive voice is 10%.
  2. Consecutive sentences: Use enough variety for your content. Do not start more than two sentences with the same word.
  3. Subheading distribution: Use subheading to divide your content. Probably use a subheading for every 150 words. Try to use your focus keyphrase in it.
  4. Paragraph length: Should be more than two sentences and less than 200 words.
  5. Sentence length: Do not write sentences longer than 20 words.
  6. Transition words: Use transition words for about. The recommended is 30% of your content should use transition words.
