Long-Form Content

Google wants to gain your customer’s interest and garner their attention by introducing more long-form content onto your site. One way to do this is through long-form blogs, guides, FAQs etc. Make sure that you use multiple headings in order to keep your readers engaged and to allow your content to be easily scannable.

Optimised for Mobile

No matter how new you are to SEO, you should understand how important it is for your website to be mobile-friendly if you want to appear in mobile searches. More than half of all Google searches are made from mobile devices. The importance of having a mobile-friendly website will only increase throughout 2022.


Web-users love consuming video content. Did you know that Youtube is the second most popular search engine? This means that brands should look into including video content on their site and even look at posting Youtube videos if they aren’t doing so already. Ensure that your videos are engaging and that they are compressed correctly and do not lengthen the average loading speeds of web pages on your site.
