The search engines use their spider features looking for links to add to search results. Also using images instead of text will make your web pages load slower so it’s best to use text links.
- No misspelling of your keywords in your content as it will easily hurt your credibility and trust with potential clients. Clients who know the correct way to spell words will see the misspelling as unprofessional and not taking the time to review the website for errors.
- Try to avoid using more than 3 keywords and phrases with your optimization as it will easily confuse the search engines as there will be too many topics on the page. It’s recommended to write small paragraphs on each topic in order to get the relevant keywords and phrases on the page.
- Watch the amount of keywords in your URL and try to not have more than 10 words in your URL link. Putting keywords in your URLS is important however having a long URL will put your site on the spam side.
