If you own a website or want to build one you may know that traffic is an important aspect to consider, It is crucial learning how to get traffic to a website. having a lot of visitors is the main goal for website’s owners, the reason why we create content, upload images and design our website is because at the end we want people to see it, right?.
There are tons of ways to lead traffic to a website and one of the most used and effective is SEO. Many bloggers and website’s owners (including myself) love SEO.
What is SEO?
SEO is one of the most powerful and organic ways to rank a website in the first pages of Google, Yahoo and Bing, A website will get more traffic when is closer to the first pages of these 3 main internet browsers .
Keywords are the core of SEO. Every single page and/or post of your website will be ranked depending on their keywords for example, if you type in google “how to train my dog” a list of websites will come up and you can see the “how to train my dog” keywords are placed in the description, title or link.
To find the right keyword that will rank your pages faster in the very first positions of the main browsers, you will need to do a detailed research on competition and traffic, that sounds like too much work but thankfully there are many keyword research tools that do the hard work for you,
