5. The 5 questions to ask yourself to optimize your SEO ?

👉 1. Question #1: Do I have a blog on my Site?

  1. This is the best way to tell Google that your site is animated :)
  2. It must therefore be fed regularly
  3. ✍️ Tips - If you don't have time at first, you can do it at least once a week

👉 2. Question #2: Is my content enjoyable to read?

  2. When you write a blog post, it has to be fun to read. Google likes that!

👉 3. Question #3: Is the loading time of my Website optimized?

  1. Slow pages perform poorly in organic rankings.
  2. A one-second delay in page loading corresponds to a 7% decrease in conversion rate.
  3. Webflow generates size and "srcset" attributes for static images, allowing smaller versions of online images to be automatically loaded for smartphones.

👉 4. Question #4: Is there an internal mesh?

  1. We call internal links, the internal links between several pages of the Website
  2. A healthy internal link structure will improve your website's performance in two different areas:
  • Ease of URL crawling and redistribution of link power
  • Ease of content discovery and increased user engagement
  • ✍️ Tips - While there is no substitute for manual entry, Webflow makes it easy to link to other articles automatically (filters link articles with similar topics)

You just saw that SEO is the basic element to master to get traffic to your Website. It's a bit of a technical part even less appreciated by creatives but it shouldn't be neglected.

My last Tips for today 👉 (because it's a question that comes up a lot!) "How many words does it take for an SEO friendly blog post?"

I would say that you really have to start thinking in terms of quality and not quantity. The important thing with your blog post is that you answer your reader's question. You have to provide them with quality content

Even if I think that a minimum of 1000 words is necessary to write a blog post, it's better to write 700 words and clearly answer a question than to write 3000 words and be totally off the mark.

You now have all the keys to master SEO like a pro! Don't hesitate to write me in comments what this article brought you and if you managed to be the first on Google (not yet? Let's go to work!)
