National SEO can be a daunting task. There are so many different ways to approach it, and it can be difficult to know where to start. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the basics of large-scale SEO and give you tips for getting started. We will also talk about how to adapt your strategy depending on your niche and target market. SEO is becoming more and more competitive every day, so it’s important to stay ahead of the curve! If you are looking to build out directories, workshops, classes, or online coaching/consulting. Then this post is for you.
SEO for Wellness and Mental Health Directories
As the popularity of online directories has grown, so has the competition. It’s important to understand how your directory fits into the larger landscape of wellness and mental health. If you are just starting out, it may be helpful to build up a list of keywords that you want to rank for. You can use tools like Google Keyword Planner or Uber suggest to begin. What is necessary for terms of content is to create a mission or why to your site ( about page). Create an FAQ page, and add blogs galore.
When doing this particular strategy think about who you are writing to. Is it the client that you want to engage in the services? Or are you trying to draw in professionals to get listed? You need to make this clear so you are not confusing your consumers. You can offer resources for both, but clarity is key. So ” Why begin working with a skilled online therapist”, and ” How Wellness Professionals Can Make the Most Out of This Directory”.
SEO for Workshops and Classes
If you offer workshops and classes, it’s important to make sure that your website is easily found by those who are searching for what you offer. Think about what people seeking workshops or classes are searching for. Remember, that while we know the importance of our services and why people need them, the client may not. So if you are thinking that workshops and classes only will be the keyword that gets you found, think deeper.
Consider this. If I am a high-achieving business professional who is used to doing things on my own, I may not seek out a class or workshop. I may search for ” feeling drained from work”, ” navigating motherhood and work”, and “struggling to communicate and commit in relationships”. So how can I as a professional find keywords, but then use them in an effective way for content so clients become motivated to consider how a workshop or class will attend?
SEO for Online Coaching
Just like any other type of business, it’s important to make sure that your website is easily found by those who are searching for what you offer. When people are seeking online coaching or consulting, they may be searching for terms like “life coach”, “career coach”, or “business consultant”. It’s important to use these specific keywords when doing SEO. A health coach is different from a life coach who is different from a career coach. Let’s make sure we are clear.
One thing that can be challenging with coaching and SEO is that terms such as life coach can be very generic. So for this particular strategy consider adding service pages for boundaries and assertiveness, relationship coaching for singles, chronic illness coaching, Niche coaching, and so on. Consider specifics and then use your content to break down the specifics.
So as a relationship coach I am able to help you learn about your identity, and needs, communicate, set clear boundaries, walk away from what isn’t healing and healthy to me, and so on. Then build out blogs. Consider a series: 5 ways relationship coaching can help you find your partner, 3 DBT skills to help you learn to communicate better at work.
SEO for Consulting
As for online consulting, think about how your services are going to help individuals reach their goals with their own business or growth. The same strategy applies, what are your essential pages, why are your services worth reaching out to, and what can you gain from working with a consultant? An FAQ page answering some common questions, and so on. Build out blogs that offer value to new clients and seasoned ones. Simplified SEO consulting’s blog is a great example of how we offer value to individuals needing answers and it also offers value to our current clients as they learn more about SEO and their sites.
When Considering National Rankings, Should I Learn SEO for Myself? Or Have an SEO Specialist Do It?
One of the things that give me great joy is training clients how to feel empowered to understand SEO and their website. When something goes right and a client sees success, that is wonderful. However, not everyone has interested to learn how to do SEO. They are more focused on the content, communicating, and working with the clients. And honestly, that’s ok too.
Some things to consider if you are wanting to learn SEO for yourself would be:
- Do you have the time to commit to learning?
- How much of a techy are you?
- Do you like numbers and analytics?
- What are your natural strengths when it comes to marketing?
If you answered yes, then fantastic! You will want to consider taking some online courses or trying our
Signs learning SEO is not for you:
- You don’t have the time to commit to it
- You find yourself struggling with the techy side of things and you don’t want to spend hours troubleshooting
- You prefer more creative approaches to marketing
These are all valid reasons! And that’s where our teams come in. As an SEO specialist and trainer, large-scale SEO is one of the things I thrive with. That is why delegating your marketing strategy to an SEO specialist who understands your field and your clients may be a great next step for you.

A large part of my job is staying up-to-date on the latest changes and trends so that my clients can continue to rank well and reach their target audiences.
