10 on-page SEO essentials: Crafting the perfect piece of content

You are now living in the midst of a tantalizing revolution as the great minds of user experience (UX) and search engine optimization (SEO) finally converge to produce beautiful on-page content designed to rank in search results AND engage or educate the user.

The 9-Step SEO Strategy for 2019 [NEW]

Today I’m going to show you a VERY effective SEO strategy for 2019. (Step-by-step) In fact, I recently used these exact steps to rank #1 in Google for “Video SEO”. And “keyword research tool”. Let’s dive right in… Step #1: Find an “Opportunity Keyword” Let’s face it: A #1 ranking isn’t what it used to be. That’s because Google keeps adding stuff to the search results.
