Mastering the Search Game: Pioneering SEO Tactics for 2021

As Seen On

As SEO morphs and mutates with each passing year, the need to stay up-to-date remains. In 2021, the operative word was ‘adapt.’ The landscape is a complex and constantly shifting ecosystem, with Google’s hulking shadow casting broad swaths of change – but there is light to be found in such shadows.

High-Quality Content: Still the Undisputed King

Content is, and always has been, the cornerstone of SEO. The age-old mantra of “quality over quantity” rings truer now than ever. Today, creating content that resonates with your audience, solves their problems, and engages their interest is key. The best way to emerge victorious in this scenario is to offer content that provides value – value that informs, educates, and, most importantly, answers the queries.

Mobile-First SEO: Priority, Not an Option

Warped by the demands of our screen-driven times, SEO has veered sharply towards the mobile-first approach. With more than half of all web traffic now created on phones, Google’s Mobile-First Indexing has become a seismic shift that brands must reckon with. Optimizing your website for mobile is no longer a luxury or a sideline – it’s a necessity.

Voice Search Optimization: The Emerging Frontier

Voice search, initially a fad, is now a driving force in the digital landscape, with a growing majority of users exploiting this feature across various devices. Voice optimization is the art of augmenting your content to cater to the semantics of spoken language – considering user intent, conversational tone, and implementing structured data to render your content voice-friendly.

Adhering to E-A-T Principles: Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness

In Google’s ever-evolving guidelines, the E-A-T acronym has firmed its grip. These principles are pivotal for any website looking to rank well. Boosting E-A-T involves showcasing your expertise, asserting your authority, and enhancing your trustworthiness by providing accurate, reliable, and informative content.

User Experience (UX): The X Factor in SEO

SEO is no longer just about bots and algorithms – it’s about humans and how they experience your website. Core Web Vitals, Google’s user-centric ranking factors, focus on aspects of usability such as load time, interactivity, and visual stability, factors that collectively denote the importance of effective UX design in achieving SEO success.

Long-tail Keywords: The Hidden Potential

Long-tail keywords, the less glamorous cousin of the primary keyword, offer immense potential if wielded correctly. They are less competitive, more targeted, and more likely to drive valuable traffic. A potent strategy is to embody the user perspective when identifying your long-tail keywords, considering the specificity and intention behind each search.

Local SEO & Google My Business: Leverage for Visibility

For brick-and-mortar businesses, local SEO is a formidable tool. Leveraging Google My Business for Local SEO allows businesses to appear in local search results, offer key information about their enterprise and garner reviews. It places your business on the map, both metaphorically and literally.

In a nutshell, mastering the SEO game in 2021 demanded versatility, the insight to anticipate trends, and the adaptability to mold strategies accordingly. Moving forward, we’re not just keeping up with trends, but staying ahead of them.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
