High quality content

Creating high quality website content is crucial for businesses looking to establish themselves as a reputable and trusted source of information online. Not only does high quality content help attract and retain visitors to your website, but it is also a key factor in search engine optimisation. Prioritise creating high-quality, engaging content that adds value to your users and helps answer their search queries.

Long tail keywords

Long-tail keywords are specific, longer phrases that are more targeted and less competitive than short-tail keywords. These types of keywords are often more effective at driving qualified traffic to your website because they are more specific and less general. For example, 'Managment jobs in Leeds' is a long-tail keyword / phrase, while 'jobs in Leeds' is a short-tail keyword. Long-tail keywords tend to have a lower search volume, but they also have a higher conversion rate because they are more targeted. By using long-tail keywords in your website's content and titles, you can increase the chances of ranking for more specific search terms and drive qualified traffic to your website.

Optimise for mobile

Optimising a recruitment website for mobile devices is essential in today's digital landscape, where more and more people are using their smartphones and tablets to access the internet. Not only do mobile-friendly websites provide a better user experience for these users, but they also have a higher chance of ranking well in mobile search results. Google has stated that mobile-friendliness is a ranking factor for its search algorithms, so if your website is not optimised for mobile devices, it may struggle to rank in search results. By making sure your website is responsive, easy to navigate, and loads quickly on mobile devices, you can improve your visibility in mobile search results and attract more qualified traffic to your website.

Structured data

Structured data, also known as schema markup, is a way to annotate your website's content with additional information that helps search engines understand the context and relevance of your content. This can include information about the type of content on your page, such as articles, products, or events, as well as specific details about each item, such as prices, ratings, or dates. By using structured data, you can improve the way your website appears in search results and make it more likely to be displayed in rich snippets, which can help increase your website's visibility and CTR. Additionally, structured data can also help improve the accuracy of voice assistants and other artificial intelligence systems that rely on structured data to understand and interpret web content.

Utilise social media

There are several ways to use social media to increase the reach of your website's content:

  1. Share your content on your business's social media profiles and encourage your followers to share it with their networks.
  2. Use hashtags relevant to your content to make it easier for people to discover your content on social media.
  3. Collaborate with influencers or other businesses in your industry and ask them to share your content with their followers.
  4. Utilise paid social media advertising to reach a targeted audience and increase the visibility of your content.
  5. Create social media posts that include links back to your website's content, such as blog posts or landing pages.

By leveraging the power of social media, you can significantly increase the reach and visibility of your website's content and drive more traffic to your website.

Internal linking

Internal linking is the process of linking to other pages on your website from within your website's content. This can help improve the navigation and user experience on your website, as well as signal to search engines the relevance and importance of different pages on your website. Internal linking can also help distribute link equity, or the value that search engines assign to links, throughout your website. This can help improve the overall authority and ranking potential of your website. Additionally, internal linking can also help improve the crawlability of your website, as search engines can follow the links to discover new pages on your website. By properly implementing internal linking, you can improve the user experience and search engine visibility of your website.

External links / Backlinks

External backlinks, also known as inbound links, are links from other websites that point back to your website. These links can be seen as a vote of confidence in your website and can help improve your search engine rankings and overall authority. When a reputable website links to your website, it can signal to search engines that your website is a trusted and valuable source of information. This can help improve your website's credibility and increase its chances of ranking well in search results. Additionally, external backlinks can also help drive traffic to your website, as users may discover your website through the links on other websites. By building high quality external backlinks, you can improve your website's search engine visibility and credibility.

Andrew and the Nodex team have been superb from the moment I asked for a demonstration on their CRM and i knew they would be the right business for me from them. Really easy to speak to, helpful and will go out of their way to provide first class customer service. Andrew has gone way beyond what I would normally expect and has helped me with tech issues outside of the actual Nodex products. Their CRM offers real value, easy to use and allows you to do far more than other options on the market and for a lower price! The connection with my company's website is also brilliant.
