It is more often than not that some businesses are looking for alternative ways to increase their following on social media in order to drive traffic for their brand. Mistakes are made when businesses create a page and simply hope for the best without any additional marketing implemented into their social media.

With the average person taking only 59 seconds to decide whether your website is worthy of their time, you’ve got some serious pressure here. If you don’t spice up your website’s content and appearance to interest more of your audience, your visitor count will quickly diminish.
Below, we share three ways that you can check on the SEO health of your content before moving on to more complex marketing strategies.

That way, when it comes time to analysing your SEO trends, you can at least be confident that you’re writing about relevant and engaging topics.
So, you’ve spent hours on your website and you think it’s coming together pretty well – but have you made sure it looks clear and engaging on both desktop and mobile platforms? Ensuring your content is formatted correctly across all types of digital devices and platforms is crucial, and cannot be understated! The good news is, with BrowserStack you can quickly work out what is and isn’t working across each platform, and adjust as necessary.
