Podcast Episode 206: SEO Tips for Dog Walkers and Sitters with Rosie Robinson of WUF Design

On this episode, I’m talking to to Rosie Robinson of WUF Design. She’s sharing tips about SEO for dog walkers and other local pet businesses to get your website discovered by potential customers. This includes using free tools from Google and optimizing your keywords. Rosie explains why it’s essential to list out descriptive keywords so customers can find you through search engines.

What about online-only pet businesses? I had to ask Rosie for some advice for you, too! She explained some SEO strategies you can use beyond your own website such as mentions in other people’s blogs, podcasts, the press, etc.

Inspired to take action right now?! Rosie says that SEO improvements are best when they’re implemented slowly over time. So while you hear us talk about all the things you can be doing to improve your website, please don’t feel like you have to sit down for the whole weekend and do every single thing. It’s actually more strategic and better for your mental health to do one thing per week.
