Yes, it may be accurate, but deploying a robust SEO improves your search engine rank. However, your SEO tactics must be focused on modifying the organic traffic.

Generating organic traffic is high competition, and search engines also favor such websites which get an automatic audience without investing money. Therefore, 9 SEO Hacks for Startups With Little Time and Money is your required guide, which will help you run a successful internet related startup.

Either you are a blogger or a website owner providing services, these tips will provide you the best chance to improve your SEO.

Cornerstone Content Is A Key

Cornerstone content is evergreen, keywords rich, relevant, up to date, and comprehensive.

It is a content which audience search based upon the keywords. If you have valued that keyword on your website, then a page from your site will come.

The robust, valuable, and keyword rich content eventually start promoting your site. On the sideline, I would say that results aren’t immediate; they take a minimum of 6 to 8 months to reflect on the search engine.

If you follow the cornerstone content technique, then the excellent way is to write three minimum 1000+ words article based on trending topics.

Free SEO Tools Helps In Many Ways

Neither I had ever used premium SEO tools, nor I would suggest you do.

For quality and functional web analysis, free SEO tools are enough to improve web and landing page performance.

Combination of Google Keyword Planner, Google Analytics, and Search Console is the best!

Using free SEO tools is a way to move forward in SEO because;

  • Google Analytic reports info of your website’s status
  • Webmaster tool tests your website
  • Page-speed insight inform you about inbound traffic
  • Search console reports about bad URLs or link errors
  • The SEO Analyzer tool fairly compares your site’s SEO to your competitors
  • Yoast is the best SEO tool for WordPress
  • SEMRush monitors your website and your competitor’s site

Submit Your Site To StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon is altogether a different way to search the internet for content. It is a community group of websites which on searching are presented to the audience while entertaining your SEO campaigns if you are on StumbleUpon.


StumbleUpon helps you in the following ways:

  • You get better visibility and helps in gaining more social shares and visibility
  • It is a user-friendly forum
  • Helps in discovering the content
  • Makes your site searchable at its community

Free Keyword Research Tool

My four chosen keyword research tool are Google Keyword Planner, Keyword Tool, UberSuggest, and KWFinder. On putting a keyword on these sites, you get the suggestion of plenty of keywords such as the long tail and related in searches.

Using these keywords in your content helps you in site page optimization; eventually, your modified web pages start ranking higher. Using these tools in keyword auditing is done, and you write 100% unique, readable, and interactive content, then the flow will make sense.

Use Long-Tail Keywords

I found Google AdWords Keyword Planner, the most suitable tool to find SEO long-tailed keywords. The tool provides value to your website when you get visitors and organic traffic.

Always keep your content original.

Unoriginal content protects your site from copyright issues. Thus, a number of unique contents help in making an active SEO campaign.

Use Amazon Polly

Recently I read many articles about Amazon Polly, a little speech-recognition tool which reads out the entire article loudly to the visitors and increases the dwell time on the site.

Some people enjoy reading blog posts and articles, while some likes others to read them. Amazon Polly helps in engaging both kinds of audiences.

Infographics – Informational Images

Such images are a part of an effective marketing strategy that doubles the site traffic. Its key importance is in processing the visual data, and socialize your content more, boost traffic.

If you are thinking to work on infographics, then hire a creative designer to make interactive infographics.
