#2 Don’t Misspell Keywords
on’t give into the temptation to optimize misspelled keywords for SEO rankings. Misspelling keywords may not hurt your search engine rankings but it can damage the creditability your company has with customers. Misspelled words can make your cleaning and restoration company look unprofessional and uneducated. As search engines and browsers evolve the popularity of misspelling keywords will decrease.
#3 Avoid Keyword Dilution
When you are creating the content for your service pages or blog posts avoid using more than 2-3 keywords and phrases. Having to many topics on a single page can make it hard for search engines and clients to determine what you are trying to focus on. If you have multiple keywords and topics to cover create multiple blogs or service pages. Creating multiple pages with quality content can increase your chances to rank higher on most search engines.
#4 Avoid Broken Links
It is important that you double check all of the links on your cleaning and restoration website. Broken links can leave a bad taste in potential customers’ mouths. Not only can it be frustrating but it implies that your company doesn’t manager your website. Search engines may also penalize website that have broken links. Make sure to check your links with a link checker every so often.
#Duplicate Content is a No No
Spammers love to create duplicate content and post it in a variety of locations, on websites and social media. The thinking behind duplicate content is that if there is more than one copy of the page more people will see it. Search engines like Google absolutely hate duplicate content. Any website or article with duplicate content is penalized and will not rank and can be banned. Duplicate content is seen as a waste of server space and poor quality information. That is why you should always focus on creating unique, high quality content for each page you create.
