Top tips for your garden! A website health check for the summer

You know when you watch or listen to gardening programs they suggest jobs to do that week? I’m going to be an expert gardener and suggest some website design and SEO ideas for your summer.

Prune your apple trees, this encourages more fruits the following year…
Take a look at your web pages and be critical about the content. You have about 20 seconds on the home page to hold your potential new customer before he/she goes off to your competitors website. Is the grass trim, does the foliage look good?

Make sure your delicate plants are well irrigated during dry spells…
Google loves refreshed content and thanks you for it by putting you higher than less active pages on it’s SERPs (search engine results pages), so water your home page with a regular sprinkling of – News, Special offers, Facts or Fiction using a your keyword content.

Is the shed clean and tidy?
We all need easy access to our tools, give the shed and the garden path a clean up…
Having attracted the attention of your browsers you don’t want them to get lost when trying to find the right tool to contact you. Make sure every possible method of getting in touch is easy to find and most importantly – works. Test the emails/forms and telephone numbers.

Manure for the future, good quality compost will help your plants flourish….
As with your garden different types of fertiliser work in different ways depending on the plant. Same goes for your website. Your home page requires at least monthly nutriments and watering. Product and service pages require a more long term deep digging and horse manure process, about us page probably only needs a few slug pellets and the contacts page can be left to tend to itself along with the daisies.

Fencing and vermin, keep the pests out…
Keep an eye on the competition; they’re sure to be looking over the fence to see how big your marrows are so keep an eye on theirs. Match and improve on their services or offers but try to avoid a turf war. Rats are a continual problem and on the internet they take the form of spam, bogus web name resellers, pay-for directories, back-link builders, SEO experts – don’t be fooled, contact your local gardening expert for free advice.

Digging over the allotment…
Once every 2 to 3 years we strongly recommend that your plot has a http://nosubhealth.com/ health check. It’s free advice and very important if you want to keep up with what google and co are doing. Just recently google changed its algorithms again last year, penalising non-mobile friendly websites. We continually monitor google through our network of websites, blogs and SEO partners.

Plant for the seasons…
It’s always a good plan to prepare for your seasonal growth. Many businesses have peaks and troughs through the year. Preparing your web pages for higher traffic can keep you up to date with, seasonal, buying, cultural and local trends. If you are very busy before Christmas? Get started on the content/page now.

Gardening for the kitchen…
I ask my wife what she want to cook from the garden every year. This simple survey lets us both enjoy a harmonious relationship – have you asked your customers what they want from you?

OHM request feedback from clients on a regular basis. You may be planting the wrong seeds, communicate with your customers using a monthly newsletter like ours – the requests from the kitchen could change what you plant!

There’s an old saying, “reap what you sow”. For more top gardening tips for your garden contact us
