I Googled โ€œVancouver Lawyerโ€ and picked a law firm on the  top of the 3rd page with a low DR.

Here are a few things I would recommend so they could  mover higher up on Google.

1๏ธโƒฃ Update the copy and make it longer.

2๏ธโƒฃ Add NAPE info in the footer to help with Local SEO.

3๏ธโƒฃ Add internal links to the main service pages.

If you are ranking on the bottom of page 1 or the top of page 2, this could be very helpful for you!

Take the URL from the top competitor in your city & industry and put in into the Ahrefs backlink checker (๐™๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ฅ๐™จ://๐™–๐™๐™ง๐™š๐™›๐™จ.๐™˜๐™ค๐™ข/๐™—๐™–๐™˜๐™ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ -๐™˜๐™๐™š๐™˜๐™ ๐™š๐™ง).

This will show you how many backlinks they have and their DR. You do not get to see them all but a good amount.

Compare this list with your own backlink profile and try to obtain as many of the links you can.

Do this and your website will start to show up higher on Google ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ”—

This is something I recently learned myself.

If you are working inside of Elementor on WordPress, you do not have to use a Chrome Extension or the dev tools to find out the hex code of a colour.

This method will give you multiple colour options instead of one, and you are able to preview the change. 

๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ง๐—ผ ๐——๐—ผ ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€:

- Click on the section or element you want to change, and then go to colour under the style options.

-From colour, click on the colour sampler (eye dropper) in the right hand corner.

-Hover over any section on the page and choose a colour you like. This will give you multiple options and the. Hex codes.

Do you want your business shown at the top of Google in the map section?

๐Ÿ“This js a part of Local Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and when done correctly, you can get your business shown in the listings and the map.

๐Ÿ“For this to happen you need to optimize specific landing pages, your business profile, and have reviews.

๐Ÿ“If you are one of the few business in the map pack,  there is a very high click through rate (44%) making it more likely for you to get more visitors + customers.

Get keywords to rank for from any large website! I used Elementor jn my example but any niche can be used (fashion, automotive, fitness, gaming, or health).

โ–ช๏ธ Take the website URL and put it into a tool like Ahrefs or SEM Rush, and view all of the organic keywords.

โ–ช๏ธYou want the easier keywords to rank for so set the keyword difficulty (KD) from 0 to 30. 

The KD can also be set lower to 15 or 10 if you have a brand new website.

โ–ช๏ธOnce the KD range has been set, add keyword modifiers to narrow down your search ๐Ÿ”.

Use terms like how, what, when, why, vs, best, and you will have terms that you can create content around.

โ–ช๏ธFinally, sort the keywords by search volume and you will have a  huge list of search terms with a low KD and high search volume.

Here is how to get your new website ranking on Google.

-Optimize all of your webpages. This means your URL, page title, meta description, heading tags, image files, alt text. Also make sure there is enough copy on the page for your target keyword.

-Index all of your pages in Google Search Console (GSC). Itโ€™s quick to do and is pretty much a copy + paste process.

-To be sure they are indexed, use the site operator in the Google search bar ๐™จ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š:๐™๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ฅ๐™จ://๐™ฌ๐™š๐™—๐™จ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š.๐™˜๐™ค๐™ข and this will bring up all of your indexed pages.

-Next start bloggingโ€ฆ not 300-400 words but 1,000 to 3,000 + words. 

-These should be fully researched, images, videos, table of contents, internal and external links. If you can do two of these a week you will out preform all of your local competitors.

-Make sure to index your blogs like of your other pages.

๐Ÿ”ฅSomething Extra๐Ÿ”ฅ Add schema or structured data to all of your main pages. This is extra information for Google that tells more of who you are and what you do.

-Go to a website like Bright Local and get business citations. This will cost about ๐Ÿ’ฒ150 CAD and your website will be listed on all of the main directories. You should have a Google Business Profile before doing this.

-Start getting links to a page or two to start getting some Domain Authority. There are a number of ways to do this (guest posts, placements, HARO, manual outreach, linkable assets, etc).

-Give this process some time and track your website in Google Search Console and a SEO tool like SEM Rush or Ahrefs.

-Be patient and your site will start to grow on the SERPs.

Here is a new tool aimed at found earlier this week.

A client and I were having troubles choosing a colour that fit her website, and luckily stumbled across this.

Super simple to use.

Just type in the hex codes of your colours and then you get progressively lighter and darker versions.

Follow these tips below for better on-page SEO, faster website loading times, and better brand visibility on the SERP.

๐Ÿ“ Properly size your images, you can do this in Photoshop, Canva, or even Paint and export as a jpg.

๐Ÿ“If it is still larger in size (300 kb or more) after resizing, compress it online with Optimizilla or Tiny PNG.

๐Ÿ“Take your compressed image and convert it to a WebP file type. After this, you can a descriptive file name and upload to your website.

For your main featured images, give it the file name of your target keyword.

๐—ก๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ: Some platforms do not support WebP so a jpg will suffice.

๐Ÿ“When uploading your featured images, also use the target keyword as your Alt text. All other Alt texts can describe the image.

๐Ÿ“Fill out the descriptions, and on some of them can even have a subtle CTA. People will see this when they hover over the image.

This is important especially for your brand images, as you want them to show in the Google  image pack when your brand is searched.

๐Ÿ’Ž Google is moving away from the plain blue links on the SERP, and you want to show up in many places as possible.
