Got a 30-minute lunch break and want to use some SEO techniques on your website? Here are a few SEO techniques that you can do usually in 30 minutes or less. There are presumably 261 working days per year, so depending on the amount of pages your website hosts, you should have plenty of time to work on these throughout the year.

30-Minute SEO Techniques

Before you get started, you should have already spent a considerable amount of time determining your best keyword choices. My favorite keyword suggestion tool is available at DigitalPoint.com. Keep this list in front of you and make it a best practice to only optimize a webpage with one keyword or keyword phrase.

SEO Techniques: Modifying HTML Code

So unless you’re extremely HTML savvy, you’re not going to be able to write an entire webpage (with CSS) in less than 30 minutes. But you can apply some simple SEO Techniques that could make a significant difference. Start by opening the HTML page using Notepad or any web editor. Then following these steps:

  1. Verify that your Title and meta tags are in sequence and not separated by other code. It should be: Title, Description, Keywords, Robots
  2. Verify that the syntax of your meta tags are in sequence: meta, name, content
  3. Insure that your Title and meta tags start with your keywords, not your company name
  4. Insure that you are not using your keywords more than 3 times in each tag
  5. Keep your title under 60 characters, anything after 60 can get truncated
  6. Keep your description tag under 150 characters
  7. Keep your keywords tag under 874 characters
  8. Do all the images contain ALT text? If so, are your keywords included? [hint: add them]
  9. Is your keyword density between 3-5%?
  10. Your headings should be wrapped with h1, h2, and h3 tags, and should all contain your keywords. If you’re using formatting instead of heading tags, you should change that ASAP

These and other basic changes can be measured using a great tool by Scrub the Web. I like using the website’s robot-simulator tool, it’s like viewing your website as though you were the Googlebot! Check it out today!
