SEO secret is what you want to hear from your web developer, right? But in all seriousness, this secret can really propel your SEO forward and it’s so easy to do!
In this blog post, we’re going to be covering adding a glossary to your website, but specifically related to the keyword that is most important to your business.
For example, on this website, I have the Web Design Glossary.
On this page, I cover common terms in Web Design and explain in my words exactly what they mean. For SEO purposes it’s very important for you to write your own glossary descriptions, do not copy and paste from others!
How many terms should be in your glossary?
I would start with 5 to 10, and then add more every single week. You should be adding 2 to 3 per week until the glossary is completely full with as many terms you could possibly think of.
In your industry there will be new terms that come around, for example in web design Web 3.0 just became very popular and needs to be explained to people who are not in our industry.
So I will make a new entry for Web 3.0 and explain what that means compared to Web 2.0 or Web 1.0.
I also have a date of update on the top of my page to let both the visitor and Google know that I update this page regularly and the last time that the page was updated.
So why does this work so well for SEO?
Because Google wants to know that you understand your industry completely inside and out. Terminology is one of the ways that an industry keeps people out of it.
So if you can explain the different terms in your industry in layman‘s terms that makes it easier for your visitors, you will win in SEO.
The final tip I will leave you with is to make sure you link to your SEO glossary in your footer. This will put extra heavy value on the glossary as it is accessible from every single page of the website .
