SEO for Publishers 101: How to Get More Traffic from Google

Share this post …

When it comes to SEO for publishers, most of us still have a lot of room for improvement.

Sure, we have some big advantages over other types of companies. We have a TON of content that often ranks well for unique search terms. And we get a lot of traffic and inbound links organically because we regularly create good content for our market niche.

But very few publishers take a methodical approach to search engine optimization. SEO is about building your publication’s authority and trust in the eyes of your readers and Google. There are, of course, technical items that need to be covered. But there are also on-page optimization tactics by your editorial / production staff, as well as link building and management strategies.
