SEO Techniques that work 2019
I learned these 17 SEO tips and applied them to another website. I will report you after I get the result if they actually work or not.
Technique 1:Use shorter URLs for your site address
Short URLs with around 17 or so characters are highly likely to rank better than longer URLs.
Technique 2: Include your target keyword in URL of each contents
Whenever you write a new article, make that URL short and include your target keyword in the URL.
My keyword in that site is “rarejob” so that the keyword has been added in some URLs of my articles.
A profile page is an exception for the technique because it is the profile.
Technique 3: Use LSI keywords in your content
LSI keywords are defined as words or phrases used by search engines to understand what your content is about.
Technique 4: Publish long content
Remember that longer content outrank shorter content.
Technique 5: Optimizing your title tag for click through rate
You should optimize your title tag for high CTR. When people search for a keyword and click on the result, it means it sends a strong message to Google. Google will be likely to give you a ranking boost.
- Add brackets and parentheses to the title like “”, , .etc.
- Use modifiers in the titles like best, top year.
In this article “2” and “【】” have been added.
In this article “2019” and “【】” have been added.
Technique 6: Use external links
Google considers external links as an on-page ranking factor.
To create external links to my site, I linked my articles with my SNS “はてぶ”.
はてぶ is one of famous Japanese SNS that allows users to add any bookmarks and links.
Also, my twitter timeline was used to create some external links.
Technique 7: Use internal links
Whenever you publish a new article, just link back this to 2 to 5 older pages on your website that you want to rank higher.
Technique 8: Maximize your Website speed
Web Synthesis or Liquid Web is high performance system for enterprises. In my case, to boost site speed I tried to reduce all of images size within 100kb.
Technique 9: Include multimedia in your content
Use tons of screenshots, videos, and charts in your content. When using a lot of multimedia in the content, people stay longer on your site.
My site did not have many images so that I added top images in all of my articles.
Technique 10: Content title should include your keyword
Technique 11: Know about a heading
Your keywords should be included in H1 tag, also you need to have the keyword within your first paragraph or your first sentence.
Technique 12: In a heading tag should include your keyword

Technique 13: Make sure that all of your content is spelled out correct.

Technique 14: Make your keyword just a few times in the post
Do not put the keyword too much. 5 to 10 keywords in an article are okay.

All of images got “alt” and “title” texts.
