AUDIT YOUR WEBSITE:

Pages that carry the most traffic and their exact URLs.
Pages that are rich with backlinks.
Assessing the main content categories and their layout on the website.
DO YOUR RESEARCH:

What is your current domain ranking?
What keywords does your website rank for?
What are potential keywords you can rank for in the future?
MAKE A PLAN:
