At Wix, we think that most things in life should be simple. From creating your website to promoting it online, we give you the tools and tips to move forward on your own. The same goes for your SEO. For those who do not know, SEO is an essential marketing strategy to be visible on the Net and bring more traffic to your site. Most often, your organic traffic, that is all the traffic coming from the search engines and which is not sponsored, is your most important source of visitors. Better yet, unlike the supermarket’s overpriced bio department, this type of traffic is completely free. With the Webpage Scientist this is the best deal.

Use long tail keywords
It may sound like a slimy amphibian but do not worry, we only refer to keywords that contain more words than the average. Well, let’s go back. First, what are the keywords? These are the two to five word phrases that a surfer is likely to type in a search window to find your business or a company such as yours. For example, if you own a cupcake store, you would like to be found by typing the keywords “best cupcakes”. But this can be complex because the short keywords generate millions of results, which makes them much more competitive. So, your website is more likely to get lost in Google’s Loch Ness results.
