Your Weekly To-Do for a High-Ranking Site
To keep growing your SEO you need to work on your website and your brand awareness on an ongoing basis. To make it easier for you to know what to do and how to do it we have put together a 'Grow your SEO checklist'.
For the best result, we recommend that you work your way through the list every single week. If you add or update your website content frequently, drive website traffic through social media and the more backlinks you manage to build the more relevant and up-to-date Google will find your website.
After all, you may be competing against others who use SEO companies to keep their business on top. If that's the case you'll definitely want to do all you can to keep (or improve) your own ranking.

Focus on 1-2 keywords that are relevant to your business
Add article schema markup (you can use the tool Merkle)
