Search Engine Optimization (SEO) ranks among one of the most powerful and effective, yet intimidating forms of marketing available to cryptocurrency projects. SEO operations do not have to be complicated though. Search optimization can easily be achieved for businesses willing to invest the time or money into it.

Due to regulatory restrictions on many cryptocurrency projects, search engine optimization offers an ideal avenue to reach potential customers. Therefore, having proper onsite optimization for your website is key to ranking well on search engines. This includes understanding which keywords will attract new customers, as well as adequately optimizing the website technologically speaking.

Furthermore, offsite optimization of your website offers a key aspect many businesses miss with their SEO plans. A key industry operator within the SEO industry suggests offsite optimization could be over 50% of how Google ranks your website. To this point, offsite optimization includes having an engaging social media presence, connecting with other sites, and creating creative content.

Keyword Research 

Understanding your customer and the type of words they will search to potentially find your business can be an easy start for your business SEO plan. That said, there are keyword research tools available to help you choose the best keywords to include on your website’s content. Be sure to prioritize these keywords and have a good density of them within your content. 

With that in mind, Google does have an intelligent search algorithm, so do not try to cram in keywords into your content. The more value you provide to users while using those keywords as themes, the more ideal your ranking will be on search page results.

Technology Optimization

The final important aspect of onsite optimization is your website’s speeds and code. Google again offers a website speed testing tool to see how well you rank on their official scale.
