What does “optimize” a webpage mean?

You’ve probably heard the word “optimize” most commonly used in phrases like “search engine optimization” (SEO).  In this instance, I’m talking about user optimization.  The site must have the user in mind and be optimized for their use.  This, in turn, should also improve your SEO.

Steps to Optimize Each Page

To optimize your home page, about page, blog, and contact us page, you need to ask yourself two simple questions.

Question 1:  What is the user looking for?

Focus on the user and why they are on the page.   

  • Where did they come from?
  • What does the visitor need to know?

Tip: Use visuals such as explainer videos, diagrams, hero shots, and photos.

Question 2:  What is my goal for the user when visiting this page?

  • You need to ask the user to do something. This is where many pages fall short. You need to include a CTA (Call to Action) on every page.  Ask yourself, “What do I want the user to do?”
