1. Set up Google Search Console.

Google's free tool to help you monitor your SEO performance. Has the most accurate data.

This can help you:
  • Monitor keywords you rank for
  • Find website errors
  • Submit sitemap Frequency, this a one time thing.

2. Set up Google Analytics

Google's free tool to help you monitor website traffic.

3. Create and submit a sitemap

Sitemap helps Google find pages on your website easily & effectively.
You can submit a sitemap manually through Google Search Console or setup an automated script to update & submit your sitemap regularly (recommended).
Frequency: One-time

4. Make sure your website uses HTTPS.

HTTPS is a must for modern websites. While it isn't a heavy ranking factor, Google will prioritize https over http.

HTTPS webpages over non-HTTPS ones.
Moreover, Chrome & Safari will warn users against browsing non-HTTPS websites.
Frequency: One-time.

5. Have a clean site structure
A balanced site structure helps Google navigate your website easily. Eg. for e-commerce sites, every product page can be mapped to a category, and have linked pages like reviews, alternatives etc. Frequency: One-time

6. Add default title & meta tags.
Title & meta description tags are key elements of on-page SEO.
It's a good practice to add default title & meta tags so that you never encounter missing tags error. You do it one-time.

7. Keyword Research
Come up with a list of seed keywords,
Keywords, topics or even broad themes you already know or have read about. Eg. if you target remote workers, your seed keywords can be - remote work - telecommuting - digital nomad. Frequency: Once every X months.

8. Use online communities to get keyword ideas
- Wikipedia: Table of contents.
- Quora: Questions & related questions.
- Google: Autocomplete & People also ask for.
- Reddit: Discussions in specific subreddits.
Also, use a tool like Keywordit. Frequency: Once every X months

9. Use Google autocomplete to get specific suggestions

- Type something on Google & you'll see predictions that can be your seed keywords
- To get more results, type in letters sequentially. For ex. "funding a", funding b" etc.
Frequency: Once every X months

10. Use a keyword research tool to expand the list.

I've used Ahrefs & SEMRush love both of them.
- Enter your seed keywords in keyword explorer
- Ahrefs: "phrase match", "having same terms"
- SEMRush: "keyword variations", "related keywords"
Frequency: Once every X months.

11.Filter keywords for low difficulty

Every tool will have a keyword difficulty (KD) score.
Filter your list by a low KD, say 20. KD is only a heuristic & helps you get an initial list.
You have to do manual work to filter the list further.
Frequency: Once every X months.

12.Filter keywords for low-to-mid volume.

You rank faster for low volume keywords vs. high volume ones.
Plus, high volume keywords usually have high competition.
It helps in short-term to put min & max volume filter.
Frequency: Once every X months

13.Manually check for search intent.

The only reliable way to confirm search intent is to manually check the top 10 results for:
- Content type
- Blogs, ecommerce pages, company website.
- Format - Listicles, tutorials, opinion pieces.
Frequency: For every new article.

14. Check website authority for top 10 results

Your aim is to kick out one of the top 10 results.
So ideally you should have at least 1 or 2 results in top 10 that have lower authority than your website.
More the better.
Frequency: For every new article.
