Hello ,

Multiple Touchpoints and Consistent SEO

by Shelley Carney

SEO is about getting you ranked on the first page in the organic results, so you’re not paying every time someone clicks.

What are the basics of SEO?

With SEO, it’s not a one-size-fits-all. 

Figure out what’s going on with your website versus the competitors’ websites. See what they’re doing compared to what you’re doing and discover the disconnect. 

The goal is to identify who’s on that first page of Google for your keyword. 

How much SEO have they done and how could we do a better job of it? 

What keywords are on their website?

If it’s a video, look at the title, description, and captions, and reverse engineer to understand what they did to get to that level.

With videos, watch time is a key metric. 

How long do people watch your videos?

If it’s a 30-minute video and people watch it for one minute, that’s not a good sign. If people watch it for 29 minutes, that gives YouTube a positive signal.
