Most people with websites have heard of SEO, even if they aren’t entirely sure how to improve their SEO. SEO stands for search engine optimization. When you work on your SEO, you are actively making changes to your web content to rank higher on search engines.
A lot of factors go into improving your site’s SEO.
5 ways that freelancers on Fiverr can help you improve the SEO of your website.
1. SEO Audits & Consultations
To determine where your SEO needs are, you might want to hire someone to do an SEO audit of your website. These audits, along with SEO consultations, can help you determine what areas you need to work on to improve your SEO rankings.
Freelancers on Fiverr provide SEO audits and consultations at a variety of price points. To determine which one is right for you, take the time to read the gig listing and its reviews. Some Fiverr gigs focus on one page on your website, while others offer a complete audit of your website and all of its pages.
SEO audits can provide information to help you build a “to do” list for improving your website. These audits evaluate the value of indexed pages, the optimization of H tags, the optimization of meta descriptions, where you’re missing alt text for images, how your website speed impacts your performance, mobile-friendliness, URL structure, and more. With the SEO audit in hand, you can make changes to your website to improve its performance in search engine listings.
2. SEO Backlinks
If you search for SEO options on Fiverr, you’ll find hundreds of gigs offering SEO backlinks. A backlink is when another site posts a link to your site. As you accumulate backlinks (and especially backlinks from quality websites), your website improves its SEO rating.
However, not all backlinks are the same. Take the time to make sure that any purchased backlinks are coming from a reputable source. Read the gig’s description and reviews to determine if the freelancer is providing links from real sites with unique IP addresses. Although high-quality backlinks will often cost more, their benefit to your website’s SEO will also be better.
3. SEO Improvement
Fiverr has a variety of options for improving SEO in particular areas. For example, if your SEO audit revealed that you don’t have alt descriptions for any of your photos, you might hire someone else to create the descriptions for your website’s photos.
Some freelancers offer an overall SEO improvement package, allowing you to make one purchase that will target all of your website’s problem areas. However, you may choose to focus on one or two areas at a time. Some tasks may be easy enough to tackle yourself, freeing up room in your budget for the trickier tasks.
If your budget is tight, you might choose to hire someone to optimize the SEO for a page or two at a time. Many freelancers on Fiverr offer small amounts of SEO improvements for as low as $5, making SEO affordable within almost any budget. If you hire experts to improve one or two pages at a time, you’ll eventually have your entire site’s SEO ranking improved.
4. Monthly SEO Service
Lots of freelancers on Fiverr provide what they call “monthly SEO service.” Most of these offer the audit, backlinks, and improvements you might get from individually purchased gigs on Fiverr.
Monthly SEO service is a good option if you are overwhelmed by all things SEO. These services can help guide you in making changes that will improve your website’s ranking in search engines. Many of these gigs claim that they can help get you to the first page of Google results. Take the time to read the reviews on these gigs to determine whether these freelancers have delivered on these promises in contracts with other users.
5. Writing with SEO in Mind
Most websites regularly add content through pages or blog posts. As you add this content, hire freelancers who will write with SEO in mind. Although the writer should create content with SEO in mind, they must write quality content that is valuable to real human readers as well. Good content will often perform well, especially as users read your site’s content.
Many writers boast about their SEO skills in their writing gigs. Others who are less confident in their SEO abilities will offer to focus on a keyword or two for your content. Take time to look at reviews to determine the quality of writing and the SEO qualifications of each freelancer on Fiverr.
If you’re having trouble finding someone who will write something SEO optimized in a style you like, you may choose to hire one freelancer to write your content and another to edit it for SEO optimization. On the surface, this may seem like a more expensive option. However, hiring an up-and-coming freelancer to write and a more established freelancer to edit may provide the quality content your website needs.
You don’t have to be an SEO expert to have great SEO for your website. If you aren’t comfortable tackling SEO for your website, hire someone who has the necessary experience, then watch your SEO rankings improve!
One of the great things about Fiverr is that it gives you access to individuals with expertise in a number of different areas. Some freelancers will claim to be experts in particular areas, even if they aren’t. However, as long as you’re reading the user reviews, you should have no problem determining which freelancers are qualified for your job and which ones aren’t. With the right freelancer, your website’s SEO can improve, driving more traffic to your site.
