You spend 4-5 hours a day working on SEO.
You also work on it on the weekends and sometimes even in your dreams.
Your wife/husband is threatening to leave you because you’re never there!
What if I told you, you could save hundreds of hours of heartache, stress and tedious work by following a few simple SEO tips?
At Goldie Agency We’ve consistently helped our clients improve their rankings and grow their businesses.
The tips I’m going to tell you are truths that have been battle-tested within my link building agency.
Get your keyword research right up front!
As you are already aware, SEO is all about creating content that contains what people are searching for in search engines.
It takes time to write an entire website’s worth of content, not to mention the cost.
The problem arises when a business doesn’t start by doing keyword research.
You could easily end up creating content that doesn’t contain the words people are searching for.
Or you could be going after super high competition keywords – which you’re never going to rank for.
In other words, you just wasted your time and energy on a bunch of content that won’t be discovered by your ideal audience, let alone rank highly in search results.
So if you want to save time and money, start by doing your keyword research.
Don’t Try and Do Everything For Free
We all know that SEO can be a very time-consuming process, but you don’t have to spend your life doing it.
You can save time by using premium SEO tools that will help analyze your competition, give you insights into keyword popularity and find new opportunities for building links.
And there are many services out there that will help speed up the process for only a small fee.
For my agency, we use an SEO tool called Ahrefs, which we use for all our clients.
It’s one of the best tools out there and gives a complete overview of where your site is ranked at. You can even use it to spy on your competition!

Always build backlinks to your content
After you’ve done your research and created great content that people love, now it’s time to start promoting it for backlinks!
This is probably the most important tip when it comes to saving time in SEO.
Backlinks are crucial for SEO because they indicate to Google that other sites find your content valuable enough to link to it within their own content.
Which makes your content more likely to rank higher in search results.
So if you’re not building backlinks to your content then chances are, you’re not going to rank.
But where do you find the time to create your own content and build backlinks?
I’ve covered all of these strategies in my previous post, check it out:
Outsource every single task that you can
Last but not least, the final time-saving tip is to outsource every single task that you can.
Being a CEO of your business can take up so much time that it’s impossible to do everything you need to do by yourself.
The reason why you would want to outsource is because it can save you a lot of time.
The reality is that it’ll take a lot of time for you to learn SEO, to figure out what works and what doesn’t, and there’s also a limit on how much content you can produce by yourself.
It’s important for you to stay ahead of the game – but not at the expense of actually getting things done!
Thus, outsourcing can help you stay on top of your game for the following reasons:
- You don’t need to invest time in learning or doing repetitive tasks that someone else can do for a low price.
- You save yourself time from having to manage tasks such as writing, link building, SEO optimization.
- You can build a team of professionals to help your business grow.
A good place to get started is on upwork.com.
You can easily find professional freelancers/agencies on Upwork that fits your budget and expectations, who will then manage some of the tasks you don’t have time for!
