The words can be used to create short tail keywords, which would further help ion creating long tail keywords. The short tail keywords are thus called pillars as it serves the base for larger “cluster” of long-tail keywords.

There needs to be 10 different long-tail keyword that are organically used in the topic so as to get better higher ranking. The content can thus be created by keyword research, optimized images, creation of SEO strategy and other smaller topic or paragraphs in the SEO.

For each pillar topic that has been created as per point one, create a web page for each of the outline at high level. Thus for each pillar topic there is a page but then it should be for a specific product or service or location that you are offering. Each web page needs to consist images and links to pages so as to enhance the user experience.

Here you will put up detailed information on each of the product, service or location and attract more and more of traffic and presence on Google.

Connect with the ones in the same line or associated and in their blog add a backlink that is associated with their product but lead to your webpage.
- Compress the media before putting it on the website
As your web site grows it will have more of images and content and storing all be difficult. The larger files are not easy to access and with compressing you can make your website easily accessible and responsive. Usual practice is to keep the file in kilobyte for improving its speed and accessibility.
Create an Excel or Google sheet to check the web page analytics and thereby with this, you can monitor the organic traffic that comes to your page and how and where you need to focus for a better improvement in future.
