With SEO being integral in website visibility and traffic acquisition, it’s always good to be on the lookout for the latest SEO hacks. It’s even more important to do so as a founder/company with a small marketing budget. 

One thing that I learned as a founder and SEO copywriter is that sometimes a small SEO hack can end up generating a lot of traffic and sales. 

Before outlining the SEO hacks, I want to emphasise a key factor that you should be aware of throughout your marketing campaigns.

 And that is to think like your customer and understand their thought process.

SEO HACK #2 Do a speed test on your website 

Did you know that user experience and therefore your website’s speed affect SEO?

You can do a speed test on Google’s PageSpeed Insights.
