5 Small Business SEO Tips

by RobertKeith

There is no two ways around it. Google is here to stay, and all small businesses need to be found there.

In fact, recent research revealed that in Australia as high as 90% of all consumers will head to Google to find the business that they are looking for. So if your business isn’t found then you’re potentially missing out on 90% of all potential sales. This can however be resolved by implementing some well planned out SEO techniques on your site.

If however you are short on funds, here are a few quick tips to help you out.


But there is good news.


You can get your website to rank, and all it takes is to know what SEO is and how it works. The down side is that is a HUGE topic that would take me months to teach you. So instead below are 5 useful tips that you can take away today and implement to help your website rank in Google.


  1. List in local directories - These will create links to your website and will signal to Google that you are ‘legimate’ and a real business which helps push you up.

  2. Ensure your ‘on-page’ set is set up - This includes your H1 tag, title, meta data, internal linking etc. It all helps Google know what your site is about

  3. Submit a sitemap to webmaster tools - This helps Google understand your website and find its way around as its reading it.

  4. Make your website quick - Utilize caching and compression techniques to boost the speed of your website. Google knows that consumers like fast websites, so they give fast websites a boost.

  5. Fix any technical errors - Google’s job is to give the end user the best results possible, so if you have broken links and 404 errors on your website then Google simply isn’t going to rank  you. Fix these with a 301 redirect.

By following these 5 simple tips your website will have increased chances of ranking.


if you want to boost your chances even higher then I strongly suggest that contact a digital marketing agency such as Black Shirt Marketing to help handle your SEO for you. They will handle all of the technical stuff so you can sit back and run your business.


Alternative marketing methods that you an employ are Google Adwords, Social Media Marketing, email marketing.
