🎯 Actionable insights
💡 1. Quick SEO tip to improve your brand presence on Google
1. Type your brand name in Google (e.g., Content Marketing VIP)
2. Go to the 'image' tab.
3. Check all the entities associated with your brand name.
Here’s an example for the brand name ‘content marketing VIP’:
Now, ask yourself:
Are these entities closely related to your brand or business offerings?
Ideally, the 'image tab' for your brand name should display relevant entities such as services, founder name, topics covered in your site, etc.
If you search for ‘Zoho,' it displays terms such as:
Project management, etc.
Likewise, displayed terms for the brand 'Semrush' are:
Site audit, etc.
Now, perform the search with your brand name.
If it shows irrelevant terms, then it means you'll need to work on feeding Google information about:
What your brand is all about
Related topics associated with your brand
Use schema markup to add specific details about your brand
Use 'About Us' to share information about the business, founder, types, services, etc.
Publish blog content related to your niche
Claim your social media and business directory profiles with unique content about the brand (third-party sources also affect the results)

💬 Bite-sized insights
💡 1. Strategy to rank product pages higher and increase conversions (by Louis Smith)
To improve the ranking and conversion of product pages, your product page should answer the common questions and doubts your target customer asks.
But how do you know what questions people have about a specific product?
Louis Smith shared a strategy to find product-related questions from Amazon (using a free chrome extension).
Here’s the process:
Step 1. Download the Scraper chrome extension
Step 2. Visit the Amazon product page’s ‘Questions & Answers’ section
Choose the product type that you want to optimize on your eCommerce store.
Selling a mixer grinder? Then visit a mixer grinder product page on Amazon and go to the Q&A section
Step 3. Right-click on any question to use the chrome extension (Scrape similar)
It will automatically scrape all the questions for you.
Step 4. Choose relevant questions and cover them on your product page.
This way, your product page will answer real questions and doubts of your target audience. And it also improves the page relevance in the search.
Tip: You can do the same for Reddit and other platforms to improve page relevance.

💡 2. Using semantically related keywords in your content the right way
If you're a content writer or SEO, you've seen secondary or semantically related keywords in content briefs.
One common mistake I notice is in the approach of using secondary keywords.
Some content writers just focus on adding these keywords X number of times in the content.
Here is what I suggest to our content writers (with an example):
(Secondary keywords example)
In the above screenshot, you’ll find keywords like
Candidate sourcing platform
Candidate sourcing process
❌ Here’s what content writers normally do: “Let’s mention these keywords in the introduction and within the body content.”
✔️ Here’s what content writers should do: “Instead of just mentioning the keyword ‘Candidate sourcing process’ a couple of times, it is important to briefly explain the sourcing process with steps.”
Or, “let’s create a subheading (<H2>) in the content to explain the complete process of candidate sourcing.”
Tips for content writers:
Treat every keyword or entity as a closely related sub-topic for the page.
Instead of mentioning these keywords X number of times, briefly explain the sub-topic and align it with the main page topic.
Sometimes, creating a sub-heading makes more sense than just mentioning the keyword in the introduction or body.
Try to build a relation between the page topic (target keyword) and secondary keywords.

💡 3. Improving existing content is a low-hanging fruit for higher ranking and site traffic
Already have hundreds of articles on your website?
If so, then take time and analyze their performance instead of creating new ones.
ranking from 11th to 30th position
With high impressions and low CTR
With no traffic and backlinks - delete/redirect/merge?
With the most and least conversion rate
Next, create action items for each page. This will help you understand what actions to take next for pages.
Here’s an example of tracking content audit with clear action items:
