SEO is what allows your website to be found on search engines. In my book A Blonde’s Guide to Be A Better Marketer: For Authors Only I discuss the steps to improve your SEO in Chapter 4. In that chapter, I break down the steps to helping you find keywords to use and where to place them within your website.
While SEO is essential to getting “traffic” to your site. It isn’t the only way. Many authors have found ways to boost their traffic with Youtube, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter just to name a few. But, if doing these things haven’t helped you improve your ranking it might be time to hire a professional. I have 2 amazing SEO guys on my team, but as I have said before my business isn’t always the best fit for everyone.
This is the short list of SEO businesses I recommend outside of my own. I have found there are GREAT SEO companies and there are some not so great companies. The ones I am suggesting are ones I would personally use. I trust these companies to deliver the best results for you.
