SEO freelancers come in two types. Some are relatively (maybe even completely) new at SEO, and they plan to learn as they work. Others have already been employed in this field, so they pack enough experience and knowledge to fill out a portfolio. Clearly, the latter have an advantage… And they are keener on the fact that SEO requires tools: both to get results and to get them in time.

Where exactly do freelancers need SEO tools? They are used where SEO can’t be done manually and where they can speed up the work. Let’s take a look at the SEO tasks that freelancers usually do.

1. Keyword research

SEO begins with keyword research. It might be different for you if you work in a team of freelancers, but someone has to do it. And if you work alone, it can’t be avoided at all, so why not get good at it?

Looking for keywords is easy enough. First, come up with a few ideas. Then open 全球十大体育平台’s Keyword Suggestions tool , enter what’s on your mind and press Search . Something you will like ought to appear in the results.

SEO for freelancers, keywords for the SEO god.

But your job is to find high-quality keywords that will bring the most traffic to your employer’s site, right? So you can’t just end it here.

Follow these steps to find the best keywords from the lot.

  • Choose keywords with clear search intent. For example, “green pajamas” isn’t good enough. “Buy green pajamas” is good, and “buy green pajamas for boys” is even better.
  • Choose keywords with the highest search volume. More people typing a search phrase in Google means more potential users for you.
  • Keep an eye on the keyword trends. You might not want to use a keyword whose popularity is dwindling, and vice versa.
  • Check the keywords your competitors are ranking for. This can be done in the Spy on competitors tab. Enter a competitor website’s URL and see their ranking keywords.
  • Check the keywords you are ranking for, but aren’t using. You can do it in the Keywords from Search Console  tab. It’s a good place to look for keywords, especially if you haven’t used Keyword Suggestions yet.

It also helps to organize your keywords, especially when you are working on multiple projects at once. To do that, make use of 全球十大体育平台’s Keyword Basket .

Keyword Basket is another useful tool for freelancing SEOs.

If you’ve created a project in 全球十大体育平台 before, you will remember the wizard asking you to enter your keywords. They can always be changed later (for example, in the Rank Tracking tool), but whatever keywords you are using will be automatically put in the Keyword Basket. That’s where you can assign tags to your keywords.

How does it help you?

If you are trying to rank for a lot of keywords – dozens, maybe even hundreds – you risk making a mess. It becomes necessary to categorize them in order to avoid confusion. By assigning a tag to each keyword, you make it easy to find with the basket’s search function – for example, if you want to delete a keyword you stopped using.

2. On-page optimization

To optimize a page means to bring it as close to Google’s content quality standards as possible. Poorly optimized pages can rank high under certain conditions, but don’t count on it. One neglected page may be enough to kill your freelancing career.

Fortunately, there’s no need to eyeball every page of your projects and look for SEO issues yourself. SEO tools exist to make optimizing much faster and easier.

Keep your pages optimized with keywords

Besides the text on a page, there are other places where keywords make a difference for your SEO. In no particular order, they are:

  • Page URL
  • tag </li> <li> <meta description> tag </li> <li> H1-H4 header tags </li> <li> Images’ file names, captions and <alt> attributes. </li> </ul> <p> Check your site for SEO errors with <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s On-Site Issues Overview tool </a> . If you forgot to optimize any of those places, it will help you remember. </p> <h3> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="keep_a_low_page_load_time"></span> Keep a low page load time <span class="ez-toc-section-end"></span> </h3> <p> If a website loads slowly even after months of being in your care, that’s going to raise a few eyebrows. Why take unnecessary blows to your reputation? It’s good for SEO when a site is quick to load, anyway. </p> <p> Here’s how you can get extra ranking points for speed: </p> <ul> <li> Minimize your images’ file size </li> <li> Get rid of excessive HTML, CSS, Javascript and other code </li> <li> Get rid of the redirects the site can do without </li> <li> Define site elements to cache in the .htaccess file </li> <li> Enable Gzip compression </li> <li> Host large files on external platforms </li> <li> “I like to live dangerously” option: re-host the website on a faster server or a content delivery network </li> </ul> <p> Check your site for speed-related problems with <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Speed Optimization tool </a> . The higher your score, the better. </p> <h3> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="make_the_website_mobilefriendly"></span> Make the website mobile-friendly <span class="ez-toc-section-end"></span> </h3> <p> Optimizing a site for mobile from scratch can be a pain, but it’s vital for SEO. At the end of the day, you are your own boss – so take it like one. </p> <p> What does a site need to be mobile-friendly? </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 1. Responsive design. </strong> This step requires you to have some knowledge in HTML and CSS, but it’s easy enough that even middle schoolers can master it. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 2. No intrusive popups. </strong> Advertisements and various disclaimers may carry important information, but they are little more than distractions to users. Use popups if you must, but don’t let them cover too much of the screen. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 3. Fast loading speed. </strong> Between PC and mobile users, the latter tend to be less willing to wait. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 4. Easy-to-use interface. </strong> Mobile screens are small, and users’ fingers aren’t as precise as mouse cursors. Keep these two facts in mind when tweaking your website’s design. </p> <p> Test your site with <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Mobile Optimization tool </a> to check how mobile-friendly it is. </p> <h3> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="monitor_the_performance_of_the_landing_pages"></span> Monitor the performance of the landing pages <span class="ez-toc-section-end"></span> </h3> <p> Your site will have pages whose performance in Google will indicate the success of your work. Most likely, those will be the home page and a number of landing pages. Monitor their performance in a few simple steps. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 1. </strong> First, you need to give 全球十大体育平台 the URLs of your landing pages. Open the <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> Landing Pages Overview tool </a> and click on the <span style="font-style: italic;"> Add landing page button </span> menu. </p> <p style="padding-left: 60px;"> <strong> 1.1. </strong> If there are only a few landing pages, choose <span style="font-style: italic;"> Add manually </span> . Enter a page’s URL and give it a name. Press Save and repeat this step for each landing page. </p> <p style="padding-left: 60px;"> <strong> 1. 2. </strong> If you have a CSV file listing all of your landing pages (if there are too many to add manually), you can choose <span style="font-style: italic;"> Import from CSV file </span> . </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 2. </strong> Open the <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> Top Pages from Search Console tool </a> . Click on the <span style="font-style: italic;"> Filters </span> menu and set <em> Pages </em> to <span style="font-style: italic;"> Landing pages only </span> . (If it’s already set to <span style="font-style: italic;"> Landing pages only </span> , leave it be.) Now you can see all your landing pages’ clicks, sessions, impressions, click-through rates and the average position in Google. You can also click on a landing page’s URL to see the search queries that bring it traffic, as well as how well those queries work. </p> <h2> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="3_technical_auditing"></span> 3. Technical auditing <span class="ez-toc-section-end"></span> </h2> <p> Some errors are in plain view, like the error 502. Others are less obvious and may be harder to spot. In both cases, SEO tools that can detect errors and the harm they bring are your friend. For obvious reasons, fixing website errors often falls on freelancers’ shoulders. </p> <p> Sadly, there are no tools that will automatically fix errors for you. On the other hand, if there were, you’d be out of job, so keep your head high! At least you have the means to make the error-fixing so much faster. </p> <p> Just scan your site with <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Technical Audit tool </a> . </p> <p> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9848 size-full" src="data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=''%20viewBox='0%200%201518%20922'%3E%3C/svg%3E" alt="SEO freelancers often have to fix site errors." width="1518" height="922" data-lazy-srcset=" 1518w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" data-lazy-sizes="(max-width: 1518px) 100vw, 1518px" data-lazy-src="png/seo-for-freelancers-fix-errors.png" /> <noscript> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9848 size-full" src="png/seo-for-freelancers-fix-errors.png" alt="SEO freelancers often have to fix site errors." width="1518" height="922" srcset=" 1518w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1518px) 100vw, 1518px" /> </noscript> </p> <p> And then proceed to fix what you’ve found. </p> <h2> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="4_building_quality_backlinks"></span> 4.

One of the best methods of discovering link building opportunities is to check what sites are linking to competitor websites – easily done with the help of <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Competitor Backlink Spy tool </a> . If you don’t know your competitors yet, find them first with the <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> Dangerous Competitors tool </a> . </p> <p> Another popular way of creating backlinks is through content submission. The  <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> Content Submission tool </a>  can automatically submit your site to dozens of websites and directories, but there’s an important rule to remember: linking pages must be contextually related to your site. </p> <h3> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="weeding_out_toxic_backlinks"></span> Weeding out toxic backlinks <span class="ez-toc-section-end"></span> </h3> <p> When do backlinks lower your rankings instead of raising them? </p> <ul> <li> When they are spammy (i.e. too many are made in a short time) </li> <li> When the linking pages aren’t contextually related to your site </li> <li> When the linking site’s domain authority is lower than yours </li> </ul> <p> The more of those toxic backlinks you have amassed, the bigger problem they pose – not just for the site, but also for the person who has to get rid of them. That’s you, of course. </p> <p> The first step of cleaning the mess is to open <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Toxic Pages tool </a> . </p> <p> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9862 size-full" src="data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=''%20viewBox='0%200%201361%20805'%3E%3C/svg%3E" alt="Do your duty as an SEO freelancer: detox your site's link profile." width="1361" height="805" data-lazy-srcset=" 1361w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" data-lazy-sizes="(max-width: 1361px) 100vw, 1361px" data-lazy-src="png/seo-for-freelancers-toxic-backlinks-1.png" /> <noscript> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9862 size-full" src="png/seo-for-freelancers-toxic-backlinks-1.png" alt="Do your duty as an SEO freelancer: detox your site's link profile." width="1361" height="805" srcset=" 1361w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1361px) 100vw, 1361px" /> </noscript> </p> <p> In order to generate an up-to-date report with toxic links, you need to rescan your site’s backlinks (or scan it for the first time if you have never done it before). Click on the menu labeled <span style="font-style: italic;"> Scanned X days ago </span> and choose <span style="font-style: italic;"> Rescan all reports </span> . Once you have the freshest data, you can get to work. </p> <p> How does the tool find toxic backlinks? It has default settings for what kind of pages to consider toxic, which you can change anytime. Either press the <span style="font-style: italic;"> Settings </span> button and choosing the <span style="font-style: italic;"> Toxicity factors </span> tab, or click on the <span style="font-style: italic;"> Configure toxicity factors </span> link which will send you to the same tab much faster. The most reliable way to spot toxic backlinks is to blacklist sites that you know are irrelevant. </p> <p> Once you find toxic links, you can get rid of them either by taking them down yourself or asking the person who made them to do it. If neither worked (or was never an option to begin with), you can only disavow them in Google. The steps for disavowing toxic links are: </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 1. </strong> Selecting linking page URLs that you want to disavow. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 2. </strong> Downloading the .txt file with selected URLs. </p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"> <strong> 3. </strong> Opening the Google Disavow Tool and uploading your file. </p> <p> The Toxic Pages tool lists these steps too, so you’ll never forget. </p> <p> <strong> Improving anchor texts in the links on your site </strong> </p> <p> Your site’s own internal links have power over its rankings, too. In order to maximize this ranking boost, the site needs a well-designed structure with a hierarchy of pages. The picture below shows a classic example of such structure. </p> <p> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5923" src="data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=''%20viewBox='0%200%20639%20286'%3E%3C/svg%3E" alt="A good example of a site structure." width="639" height="286" data-lazy-srcset=" 639w, 300w" data-lazy-sizes="(max-width: 639px) 100vw, 639px" data-lazy-src="jpg/ecommerce-seo-mistakes-18.jpg" /> <noscript> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-5923" src="jpg/ecommerce-seo-mistakes-18.jpg" alt="A good example of a site structure." width="639" height="286" srcset=" 639w, 300w" sizes="(max-width: 639px) 100vw, 639px" /> </noscript> </p> <p> If you’ve already got that covered, the next step is to optimize the internal links by putting keywords in their anchor texts. </p> <p> You might even have links without no anchor text at all; that’s right there a wasted SEO opportunity. To find such links, bring up all anchor texts on your site with the <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> Link Text Analysis tool </a> . </p> <p> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9850 size-full" src="data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=''%20viewBox='0%200%201477%20778'%3E%3C/svg%3E" alt="Make full use of your anchor texts." width="1477" height="778" data-lazy-srcset=" 1477w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" data-lazy-sizes="(max-width: 1477px) 100vw, 1477px" data-lazy-src="png/seo-for-freelancers-anchor-texts-1.png" /> <noscript> <img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-9850 size-full" src="png/seo-for-freelancers-anchor-texts-1.png" alt="Make full use of your anchor texts." width="1477" height="778" srcset=" 1477w, 400w, 1200w, 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1477px) 100vw, 1477px" /> </noscript> </p> <h2> <span class="ez-toc-section" id="5_recovering_from_a_drop_in_rankings"></span> 5.

It can occur for several reasons, and it will be up to you to investigate what exactly caused it. If you are lucky, your employer will already know the cause, and then you’ll just have to find a way to recover from damage. </p> <p> These are the most common reasons for a drop in rankings: </p> <ul> <li> <strong> Google penalty. </strong> The website broke Google Webmaster Guidelines and was devalued for it. If that’s what happened, there should be a message about manual actions in Google Search Console with suggestions for what to do next. </li> <li> <strong> Google update. </strong> Google makes changes to its algorithm every day, but sometimes they are big enough to cause thousands of websites to lose their rankings. SEO communities are always onto such changes and will usually have a solution. </li> <li> <strong> Loss of backlinks. </strong> Find out if anything happened to your link profile in <a target="_blank" href="" rel="noopener"> 全球十大体育平台’s Backlink Quality Check tool </a> .

There might be only a few offending pages, but sometimes that’s all it takes to lose the top ranking positions. </li> <li> <strong> Content was changed recently. </strong> Some pages used to rank high until they were edited and Google crawled them again? Then it might be a good idea to fix whatever is wrong with new content – or just bring back the old. </li> <li> <strong> Bad keywords. </strong> It’s also possible the website simply isn’t using the most optimal keywords to rank for.
