When you launch a new website you will find it very difficult initially to get it listed with search engines.
The first thing you need to do is look at the domain name. Yes, keyword domain names are great for ranking quickly and easily. An exact match domain name is when the keywords you are using form part of your domain name. So you will want to get your keywords inserted, without having them set up as the exact name you are trying to target. For example, if you are trying to get a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, you would think KitchenAidStandMixer.com would work. However, with the updates you may be better off registering a general term like standmixers.com or something like that.
Establishing proper meta information on the site early on is important as well. Once you have launched your site and submitted it to the search engines, you will notice it is going to be indexed in some manner. If you do not have the meta information added before this point you could end up getting the site indexed for something you are not trying to target.
Setting up quality social media accounts is another aspect that a lot of people have considered but found little success doing. The best way to leverage this strategy is to launch the social media accounts at the same time as the website. That way people can start to get the right accounts tied in with their website and this will make the site look more professional, but also start to build up trust between the site and the visitors.
Finally people need to consider adding a sitemap. Normally people do not think about this, but when they are looking at the website it may start off small, but generally it is going to build up quite a bit of posts and pages as it gets older. A sitemap is a great way to keep all of this information organised, helping users quickly find the information they want.
Being able to launch a new website is exciting. However, for a lot of people it can be very difficult to get the website listed in search engines. Now that you learned how to perform SEO on your new website, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll see your website ranking well on SERPs.
