Use SEO for Digital Marketing

Why Take this Course

Your website must show up in Google. This three-workshop series shows you what to do to get your pages higher on Google to get more visitors, leads, and sales. We show you how to use testing to find the best keywords, titles, and images for your pages.

We cover the four major areas of SEO:

  • Keyword research: How to find the best keywords and spoken queries.
  • On-page SEO: How to improve what your visitors see on the page.
  • Technical SEO: How to fix many small technical issues.
  • Off-page SEO: Additional steps to improve your page’s ranking in Google.

The workshops include lots of examples, tips, notes, and insights so you’ll understand what these mean. You’ll see dozens of tactics to apply, including code for you to copy, edit, paste, and use. You can also apply many ideas from SEO to your digital ads, social media, video, and content marketing.

The SEO course is presented in three workshops.

New Tactics for 2022

The DMAnc.org SEO course has been completely updated for 2022. You’ll see methods on how to test keywords, meta-tags, pages, and more to get data so you can find the best results. We’ve added many new SEO tactics, tools, and methods. You’ll also see a unique section on how to understand the data for statistical confidence (using basic arithmetic). No other course or book offers this.

The first session starts with Keyword Research, the basic first step of SEO. You’ll see how to use eight advanced tools to find the keywords that your audience uses to search for your company, products, and services. You’ll also see how to find the keywords that bring traffic to your competitors. You use these keywords and keyword phrases to write your meta-tags (TITLE tags and DESCRIPTION tags), page headings, body text, image captions, links, and more.

Like keyword research, you’ll also see how to find the questions that your audience uses about your company, products, and services. You can use these questions to write pages, ads, social posts, content marketing, and make videos.

The secret to keyword research is testing. Which keyword works best? You test the words to collect data. There is an easy way to quickly test thousands of keywords to find the ones that work for you. You’ll al-so see how to convert all keywords to lower case in one step, sort keywords into categories, make per-mutations of the best keywords, and quickly translate keywords into other languages.

Key Takeaways:

  • Keyword Research: We look at free tools to find thousands of keywords, including your competitors’ keywords. You’ll also see how to find the questions that your audience uses when they search.
  • You’ll see how to test keywords to find the best ones. Use a free tool to make permutations of your top keywords to get yet more keywords and another free tool to translate your keywords into other languages.
  • Finally, we look at how Google reviews and selects websites. What are their selection criteria? What do Google’s 8,000 Quality Reviewers look for? This gives you ideas for improving your pages and avoiding red flags.
  • Sections include checklists for your work.

The next step is on-page SEO. This is what people see when they look at your web page. There are many things to improve on the page, so your pages are indexed better, such as site architecture, page design, site search, and video. This also improves the page for your visitors.

We continue with technical SEO. This includes changes to the HTML code so search engines can put your page in the right category and improve your ranking in Google search results. You will see how to find meta-tags in your HTML code. We will cover how to edit the meta-tags, the page heading, the body text, ALT tags, and the text in links. We give you a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that lets you make sure your meta-tags stay within Google’s character limits. You’ll also see a quick way to test meta-tags to get the best ones. We also discuss which pages to choose for SEO work. You’ll also see how to do SEO for images, including how to make changes to the hidden text in images.

This workshop gave a great overview of the insight that Google Analytics can provide. Though I have been using Google Analytics for years this course still provided new ways of thinking and reporting that I will be applying when analyzing my company’s website.
