How To Do SEO: The 8 Most Important Elements:
In addition to the elements already mentioned, there are others that do not depend 100% on you, but need to receive attention and optimization. Below, 21BRZ introduces you to the 8 most important elements of SEO that you need to pay attention to and that will directly influence your SEO results:
- Bounce Rate: Bounce rate is the metric that tells how many users came to your content and didn’t take any action on the site (eg clicked on a link, or downloaded something). The higher the bounce rate, the more Google will understand that your site isn’t relevant enough. That’s why it’s very important that your text is able to engage the audience and lead them to action;
- CTR: CTR is the ratio between impressions and clicks. Impressions represent the number of people who saw your article in search results. The click, as the name suggests, is how many people clicked on your content. The higher the CTR, the more Google will see your content as relevant. To increase the CTR %, it is necessary to invest time to create a good Meta-Description and Title.
- External Links: Google doesn’t want to put any website in its results. The least he expects is the information to be reliable. So it takes an effort to show that your page or article was created from a lot of research. Referencing third-party websites during the text will convey that impression to the search engine;
- Title Size: An important factor is the page title size, as it influences the user’s understanding and click-through rate. It is recommended that the H1 be 50 to 65 characters long;
- Responsive Site: Google prioritizes mobile site indexing. It even provides a tool that helps you optimize your pages for mobile viewing. So ensure that the user experience on smaller screens is excellent;
- Links to Your Site: One of the most important factors (if not the main one) is the third-party links that point to your site. Getting mentions on articles and sites from older domains is powerful for SEO;
- Site Speed: Google wants to increasingly deliver a better user experience. Therefore, the speed of the website is a very important factor;
- Domain Age: The older the domain, the greater its authority with Google. So, avoid changing your domain, it will only harm you.
- These are the main points you should consider when thinking about your SEO. There are also hundreds of elements that cannot be forgotten. 21BRZ has prepared a list of 200 factors that Google has revealed that it takes into account to rank pages in its results.
