Every website should have a page title. The page title is what is evaluated by search engines to determine the content of a website. Having the keyword in the title will improve a website’s rank on search engines.

This is an on-page optimization technique that is considered by search engines to determine what position a website should be ranked.

Builders should also use their industry’s keywords in the Meta data. The Meta data is a brief but detailed information about the firm and its products or services. The keywords should be incorporated naturally in the sentences that will go to the Meta data.

  1. Use keywords in H1 text

Headings (H1 text) should also be incorporated with keywords. H1 text is normally the title of the document and is always located at the top part of the web page. Search engine bots read a website’s heading to determine what industry it is in.

Builders and remodelers should use their industry keywords in the pages’ content. By using keywords on the page text content, a website can easily outrank other websites in the same industry. Having the keywords within the content increases the chances of it getting ranked on the first page of a search engine.

Finally, the ranking of a website should be checked regularly. This will help track the progress and identify any shortfall in the SEO techniques used. In addition, monitoring the ranking will help you understand the number of potential clients available online.
