Well, it may work for a baseball field in Iowa, but it doesn’t work for companies looking to generate business online.
A great website won’t do your business any good unless people know it
exists. One of the best ways to drive traffic is to have your company
website appear at or near the top of search engine results for searches related to your
products or services.
There are a number of ways to improve your rankings on search engines. One of the
most effective is to optimize your site for easy evaluation by search engine crawl bots.
What follows is a broad overview of search engine optimization (SEO), and how you can
build your website to drive more conversions for your business.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION ESSENTIALS
Remember the line from Field of Dreams,
“build it and they will come?”
The job of search engines is to provide users with the most relevant and helpful results when they search for specific terms.
To do this, each search engine has created its own unique algorithm to
give users what they feel are the most relevant results to a query.
SEO refers to the process of increasing the visibility of specific web pages in organic search
engine results for chosen queries. “Organic” refers to the rankings assigned to web pages
for each query by search engines using their ranking algorithms. The methodology used
in the SEO process is based on knowledge of those ranking algorithms and how to best
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION ESSENTIALS 3
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Search engine programmers strive to provide the most relevant and query-satisfying results they can supply to any given search phrase.
That way, more users will want to use their search engine, and more users’ means more advertising dollars.
Millions of dollars are invested into making the ranking algorithms more helpful to users.
The constant research and updates result in continual changes to the weight given to
each individual factor that determines overall rankings.
HOW DO SEARCH ENGINES RANK ON Google.? 4
How Does One improve his Rank On Google
A number of core ranking factors remain constant, however:
Content on a web page must be related to a search query. That
means that the text on a page must appear to satisfy a given query. It
is not enough that a web page simply repeats or “stuffs” the same
keyword into a page as much as possible. Not only does
a phrase need to appear on a page, but it must re-appear consistently
throughout an html document and be surrounded by related
keywords in a natural way. Today’s search engines can detect and
penalize unnatural uses of language thanks to the sheer amount of data they have
access to. (Google has indexed over a trillion URLs.
1. Other related websites must re-affirm that the content on a web page is related to
a given query. Just like votes of confidence, each link from a related website to a web
page tells search engines that whatever is on that page must be related and therefore
should rank for a particular phrase.
2. To determine the value of each link to a page, in relation to what effect it will have
on ranking, the two factors to keep in mind are the relevance and authority of the
Relevance is determined by how much the website linking to a web page is related to a topic, while authority is based on a variety of factors such as the number of links the linking website has to it, how old the domain is,
and what type of
extension the url of
the website has.
4) Authority of the website is based
on a number of factors. Obviously, the
search enginesdon’t weight all links
equally. Google, for example, gives a
significant amount of weight to
governmental sites (.gov), educational
sites (.edu) and to major media sites
(a link from The New York Times, e.g.,
carries significant weight).
5) Links to the web page must describe what is on that page.
Search engines place a lot of value on what is called “anchor text”. That is the text that is
to another web page. The words that are hyperlinked are judged as descriptive of the
content on the web page being linked to. A clear example of this is the Adobe Reader
web page. Although the words “Click Here” do not appear on the page, it does rank for
that very search term on Google.com. That is because there are many websites which
have a link to the page using the words, “click here” (to download Acrobat Reader).
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION ESSENTIALS 6
At the heart of SEO is
keywords that your
targeted audience is most likely to be
using. The criteria for deciding what
keywords to target are the following:
Relevance: to what extent does
the keyword relate to my website?
Search Volume: how much is
the phrase searched?
ROI: Consider that any keyword
or phrase may take months or years to
rank on page 1 of search results for your
industry. What is the potential revenue
from the keywords to be targeted and
how much will it cost to rank for those
THE SEO PROCESS WHICH
Websites need to be optimized to rank better in search engines for any specific search phrases that are actively being targeted. The factors
that contribute to website optimization are the following:
Page elements like title tags and usage of HTML code such as H1 tags. H1 tags are a specific
type of tag in HTML markup language that defines the largest headers on a page. Search
engine algorithms give this type of tag slightly more
weight than most other types of HTML tags.
Usage of exact matches of targeted keyword
phrases in content on web pages. For example,
if you want to optimize for “car repair”, don’t just
include the words “car” and “repair” throughout
your copy, but make sure that the complete
phrase “car repair” is present. Including related.
Link juice is a combination of factors resulting
in a certain amount of value being attributed to a
given page on a website. Each page has a certain
amount of link juice, which is divided up
between all the pages that the page links to. This
continues on every subsequent page, on every
web page of a website. If a website has a lot of
links to its homepage and none to its subpages, as is the case with many websites, it
is very important to channel link juice from the homepage to key subpages through
LINK BUILDING 9
One of the most is link building.
The key to link
building is creating
original and quality
content. This means
that is highly useful to
your target audience and is presented in
a clear and entertaining way.
If you do not have the in-house
expertise to create this kind of content,
it is strongly recommended that you find
a copywriter with the ability to do so.
Use social media to highlight your
quality content so other websites that
are relevant to your own discover and
link to your website.
Make sure you have schema markups on
as much content as possible. Doing this
will make your posts more visible
in Google’s SERP (search engine results
page) by adding things like images,
videos, or ratings to your search result.
