The categories of search engine optimization spans from keyword research to on-page SEO, technical SEO, link building and more.

Tackling all these pieces at once isn’t a good idea because they can lead to confusion and overwhelm. In this video, Sam shares an SEO checklist that will help you stay optimized, organized and sane.

Firstly, you learn how to nail your basic setup by creating a sitemap and checking for a robots.txt file. You’ll also find out the essential free SEO tools that you should set up, like Google Analytics and Google Search Console.

Next we delve straight into keyword research by first finding a primary keyword target for your page and assessing search intent.

Sam then shows you a couple of handy ways to look for related queries to your topic and reveals a technique to find relevant keywords and subtopics for your post. We then look into assessing your chances of ranking in Google.

On-page SEO comes next. Based on some findings from Ahrefs’ research, you’ll learn the importance of using short, yet descriptive URLs, and the most important thing to optimize for when drafting a compelling title tag and meta description. Sam also shows a nice little bonus tip to find places to add relevant internal and external resources.

Next up on the SEO checklist is to create your content.

You’ll learn the importance of writing an engaging introduction and get a few tips to learn how to ensure your content is readable for the vast majority of readers. We then look into how you can ensure your content solves the problems readers are searching for.

Subsequently you’ll discover the most important white hat link building strategies and techniques:
– Find prospects who are linking to competing pages
– Expand your list of link prospects using Content Explorer
– Guest posting
– Skyscraper Technique
– Broken link building

Lastly, you’ll learn the basics to ensure your technical SEO is up to par.

You’ll learn how to run an SEO audit with Ahrefs’ Site Audit tool and additional tools to measure and fix page speed issue.

You’ll also learn how to check that your site is mobile-friendly as well as fix external and internal broken links.

Breaking SEO down to smaller bite-sized checkpoints can help you get things done effectively and efficiently. This video gives you the complete SEO checklist you need.
