Secondly, understand your target audience perfectly to know how they express themselves and how they formulate their requests. Once you have identified these terms, you can use the requests the most requested by Internet users to develop your list of keywords that will make the difference.
Publish regular articles on your blog
Publish a blog post frequently
There is no right answer to the question: "How often should I publish a blog post?“.
Publishing content on your website on a regular basis is still essential to gain the favour of Google... and your readers! By frequently feeding your blog with editorial content you improve your visibility on search engines, you attract new prospects and you loyalty your customers.
Google crawls your site for new pages. If you suddenly stop publishing for a few weeks... Google will not visit your website as often and when you start publishing again, your articles will take longer to be "spotted" by the engine and will therefore be slower to be indexed. Keep up your pace so as not to lose efficiency!
Publish quality blog posts
Be careful not to put quantity ahead of quality.
Think about the content that can interest your target and think about publishing high value-added content. Let your readers know that you are an expert so that they are interested in you.
Exploiting paid referencing
Coupled with a natural referencing strategy (SEO), it ensures the good visibility of your site on the Internet. Paid search (SEA) allows you toquickly increase your ranking on search engines according to the strategy defined and its implementation as well as the given budget.
Your SEA campaigns allow you to collect information which helps you to optimise natural referencing. SEA also naturally has a positive impact on your SEO because if you increase traffic of your website with SEA, the latter boosts your natural referencing.
In fact, it's quite simple. Google also simply thanks the websites that have at one time or another spent a minimum budget. To explain in 2 words: you have two websites with exactly the same characteristics, the same SEO, the same reputation,... and one of them has implemented SEA, it will obviously be the one that has combined the two that is more highlighted than the other.
