Improve your homepage headline

Improve the very first bit of text a website visitor (and Google) sees on your website.

  1. Check your very first headline on your website (this is usually located on the header image, below the logo and the navigation.
  2. Does it clearly say what you do, where you do it and for whom?
  3. Does it use the H1 tag?
  4. Does it include keywords?
  5. Is this headline clearly visible – and the most dominant thing people see first – when they open your website on a mobile phone?

Look at the three mobile screenshots of 3 websites (the last one is my photography site). It’s not clear what the first two offer.
