It can analyse the website, generate action plans to be taken and help identify what keywords to target to get organic, un-paid traffic from search engine results. Get started now in just 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Set up an SEO Project

Once you've purchased the SEO tool, getting started is going to be as easy as accessing the tool and providing the system with your business profile and target keywords. Follow the guide below to complete your profile and get started with your first SEO Project:

Allow up to 30 minutes for the system to conduct a thorough check on your website, target keywords, and competitors. Once done, you can proceed with Step 2 below.

Step 2: View Health Check Results

The system will do the research for you. Your health check results will tell you what areas are affecting your site, and details on how you can solve the issue – or building the Action plan, which we will cover on Step 3.

Access your OMH dashboard, click Open on Simple SEO and your health check results will appear under the Available Actions tab.


Click on the drop-down arrow at the top-right corner of the results page to view which ones you passed.

Manage the results using filters found on the left-side panel. You can Filter Action by category, estimated time of completion, or difficulty.

Step 3: Build an Action Plan

Your SEO Action plans are prioritised actions generated in the tool. This is after you set up keywords on your profile and the tool analyses what you can do to better improve the overall ranking of your website online.

Prioritised SEO actions are generated each month. Meaning, for every completed list of SEO actions for a specific month merit a new set of SEO Action plans in the next month.

Before clicking the Add to Plan button, view the Action Card information and evaluate whether this is a task that you can do with the time that you have. To do this, simply click the link Details on any Action Card and read through the information provided.

The details of an Action Card will explain how you can fix the issue, why it is important to fix it, and reminders before making any changes.


Then click Add to Plan on the Action cards that you want to implement. All your planned actions will appear under the Action Plan tab at the top.

A full guide on the SEO Action Plan feature can be read on this guide below:

Now you're ready to proceed with Step 4.

Step 4: Implement your Action Plan

Click on the Action Card that you wish to work on. Each card will have detailed information on what this task is about and how you can fix it, including downloadable guides. After implementing an action, remember to click Complete and enter the number of hours it took you to complete the action, and if you want you can add Notes, then click Submit. Your progress is visible at the top of your Action Plan page.
