Can a slower site affect me?

The short answer is yes, absolutely! As the internet gains more and more users, speed is a key component of whether people want to stay on your site or not. A slow-loading page is a terrible first impression for your website and can ultimately hurt your rankings significantly. Nowadays, when people land on a slow website, they find it untrustworthy. According to Neil Patel, “a 1-second delay in page load time can yield a 7% loss in conversions.” Many potential readers find it discouraging and quickly move on to the next. To keep your website running in top shape, little things such as keeping a clean sidebar and deactivating plugins can make a difference.

Is it okay to add links to other sites?

It is recommended to do so! Yes, linking to other websites takes people off of your page, but it can attract others. Adding relevant links is a very attractive element because it helps with optimizing your standing with Google. Linking to other websites not only helps with SEO but also helps with analytics. Linking to other websites tracks the traffic that is coming and going to, from, and through your website. Linking out can potentially in the long run, benefit you by increasing your visibility with other personas online. From bloggers to influencers to journalists, your increased visibility will only encourage them to eventually do the same for you. That, in turn, means they will link to your website, which will invite more traffic to see your work. 

Be mindful of who you’re writing for

Yes, using keywords is a great way to boost your viewership, but keep in mind that when creating content, you’re still looking to provide inspiration and/ or information, which is a service to your audience members. Google is not your audience; Google is a tool that you use to reach as many ideal audience members as possible. Provide value to your readers, and they will come back and bring some friends along. Once Google notices, it will step in to help you find even more to help you grow your ideal community. Remember, your audience members are the ones who are going to spend money on whatever you have to provide regarding a product or service. Google is not.

Don’t forget to have people link your site to theirs!

Just like you add links of others to your website, you want other content creators to do the same for you! Having the link to your site not only means that you are a trustworthy source for them, but that will also build the trust of their audience members with you. When people start to see your website popping up in their sightlines regularly, they will essentially see you as a trustworthy and reliable source of information for the content that they are looking for.

Social media can only help.

Using social media increases your engagement, which can help you sharpen your brand faster and lead to more sales and a larger audience. More than anything, it takes a little time to figure out which platform works best for you. Once you do, with the right content, you will be able to attract your ideal audience with little to no money coming out of your pocket. It’s basically free marketing that can only help when done right.

What keywords are you using for your images?

Think about what you type in when you’re looking for a particular image on Google. You normally spell it out for the search engine so that you can land on the exact thing you’re looking for, right? If you’re looking for “red pumps,” do you type in “high heels on sale,” or do you type in “red pumps?” Keep that in mind when you’re creating keywords for your image searches as well. Keeping it simple and being direct is your best bet. Save the extra creativity for your content when you’re writing it. 

These little tips can help you boost your SEO and help you find the right audience that you are looking to communicate with. Hiring a Long Island internet marketing company can cut out the extra stress of figuring out how to navigate the world of SEO.

In 1693, William “Tangier” Smith, who owned a homestead in Setauket, was allowed to purchase a large tract of land on the South Shore of Long Island in recognition of his being mayor of Tangier in Africa. The land, called Manor St. George, stretched from the Carmans River (then called the Connecticut River) in the west to the edge of the town of Southampton in the east, with a northern border around present-day New York State Route 25, as much as 81,000 acres (330 km2) of land. He made his manor seat on the South Shore in present-day Mastic, and the northern part, now the south side of Ridge, was called “The Swamp” or “Longswamp”. A house wasn’t built at Longswamp until after the American Revolution. In 1817, William Sydney Smith inhabited the house and changed the name to Longwood.

In 1955, what then remained of William Smith’s original manor was primarily located in Ridge and was surrounded by the world growing up around it, in the form of the Brookhaven National Laboratory and the surrounding areas becoming increasingly populated. Longwood’s 750 acres (300 ha) fell into the hands of Elbert Clayton Smith, who immediately moved his family from California to live there. He seems to have been very generous to his new community; his donations included 51 acres (21 ha) to the school board for the construction of Longwood High School and 6 acres (2.4 ha) to Middle Island Presbyterian Church. In 1967, Elbert Smith died, and the Longwood Estate was carved into housing developments and nearly destroyed until enough noise was made about preservation to have the house and 35 acres (14 ha) of land given to the Town of Brookhaven in 1974. The Smith Estate was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.

In 1738, northern Ridge was settled by widower Samuel Randall of North Stonington, Connecticut; his only son Stephen Randall and his descendants farmed a 4,000-acre (1,600 ha) plot of ground that Samuel had always referred to as “the Ridge” based on the geographical terrain. First called “Randallville”, Ridge was the name selected by its residents for postal delivery. The Randall burial plot near the William Floyd Parkway includes the grave of Lt. Stephen Randall (1736-1818), patriot of the American Revolution and a Suffolk County Militia veteran of the Battle of Long Island. Graves of Randall’s wife Elizabeth Swezey (1747-1834) and several descendants are also within the plot.
