In this post, we share with you 2 tips that will help you to boost your organic search results.

1. Choice of SEO keywords

As most of you would know, keywords are the words that one would put in to the search engine intended to find out the answer for their own inquiry. If you want your audience to see your website, then you would need to predict what kind of keywords they would put in to search for it.


But of course, it is difficult to know right away which words are frequently searched, especially if you are someone who just started a new business in a particular industry. One way of finding this answer is to run keyword tests using Google Trends to find out favorable and profitable key phrases for your business to prosper. Google Trends can help you search for popular keywords, and your potential geographical market as it also analyzes the areas that people frequently search for the particular keywords.

Remember: keywords don’t have to be short! Most of the internet users knows that the more specific their search terms used, the more accurate and relevant their search results will be.


This is where long-tail keywords come into play. Long-tail keywords are those that have three or more-word keyword phrases, which are quite specific that they can bring you with lower competition and more specified traffic – that only attracts your target audience!


For those of you who intend to run a paid search marketing campaigns, long-tail keywords are even more beneficial to you as the keyword itself has less competition, the cost per click will also be lower!


2. Be clear and concise with your title

Google would only show the first 50 to 60 characters of the title in their search results. If your title is too long like the picture shown above, your customers may have missed out some important words from your title, and eventually losing some business opportunities. You don’t want that to happen, do you?


So, make it short and clear so that your audience can see the whole title in the result page of the search engine and determine the relevance of your page right away!


The title of the post is often referred to as the H1 tag, or the text that are being emphasized on the page which always stands out from the whole article. Example of a perfectly structured H1 tag would be something like:
