3 SEO Mistakes: You’re Probably Already Making at least 1
SEO is a vast scary land to most people.
But I know as you try avoid it, it keeps popping up on your need list.
I get it…
And it involves a lot of acronyms and industry jargon.

The other good thing is that there are lots of ways to improve it and see a big benefit; the first is by avoiding this common mistakes.
Your site could already be in someone’s #1 but you’re doing this…
Mistake #1: Ignoring those images tags
Be honest when you upload those product photos to your site do you leave the title name image12345.jpg and leave the “alt” field is blank.
Don’t do that again LOL.
Google love to show you in image search and it use the title and the alt to figure out what’s in the picture
How to solve this:
Next time you add photos use 3-5 words in the title and alt fields to describe the picture. If you are really fancy today go back to your old photos and change the information there too. (It’s not too late Google will find them)
Mistake #2: Ignoring analytics (data about your traffic)
Did you know Google actually wants you to win?
I know it sounds crazy and definitely now what most will tell you, but I promise you they do.
Google provides all of the free tools that let you know who’s coming to your site, where are they coming from, and what they are looking for. The most popular one is Google Analytics.
This is critical to SEO, because it’s much easier to get traffic to pages people are already looking for but you need to know what they are to go after them. (Don’t worry I show you how in the Jump Start)
How to solve this:
Easy, go install Google Analytics, but don’t just install make a date at least once a week to review your numbers
Mistake #3 Using the same tags and text over and over
I know I just told you go tag all the images in your world, but I don’t want you to fall into 2nd trap repeating the same things throughout your site. There are a billion ways to say one thing use them. Google likes variety so spice up those tags and descriptions like this guy. LOL
How to solve:
This one is simple, be creative!!! Think of different ways to talk about your products and services and use them throughout your site to keep you readers and Google excited about your site
