Basic SEO: As told through Arnold Schwarzenegger gifs

Thinking of an SEO campaign for your business? Well, congrats. You’ve just made the decision to step into a better world, and we’re here to help guide the way. Seeing as how this is the Internet, we thought we’d break down a few SEO basics with the help of our friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

So, sit back, relax, and let Arnold school you on some SEO basics…

So you think you have a pretty sweet website. Good for you:

And your traffic numbers are great, and you’re not too concerned with where it’s coming from, so you’re feeling pretty good about that:

All of a sudden, Google changes its algorithm again and starts penalizing sites with low-quality backlinks and duplicate content, among a number of other discrepancies…

Now, you’re left with virtually no traffic coming to your site, and you’ve been pretty much blackballed by Google. Thanks, Google:

All might feel hopeless because getting rid of those nasty backlinks is a pain-staking task you’d wish upon no person:

But if you’re going to get your site optimized for Google and other search engines again, you’ll have to get rid of what’s bringing your site down.

Once the link removal process is started, the next step is getting to work on optimizing all the good content on your site. This is where strong keywords, apt title tags and meta descriptions, good 404 pages, and anchor text becomes priority. Further, take an extra step to get your site linked to from other quality sites for optimal search engine rankings.

Once you have quality incoming links with specific keywords pointing at your site’s content, you’ll start to slowly see results as more relevant traffic starts taking notice of your site.

The effort doesn’t stop there. You’ll have to keep your site updated regularly with fresh content to keep its performance optimal.

When you’re back in the good graces of Google and other search engines and have a plan to keep it that way, chill out for a second.

But always be on your toes for when you need to do it all over again.

And when all’s said and done, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get on board with an SEO campaign sooner.
