The first step to SEO
In general the problems start by the fact that a lot of the time people don’t even know how many people are visiting their website! This is a big issue as if you are not tracking the numbers of visitors to your website and how they are finding it then how do you know whether your website is in need of SEO? You could be having 1 visitor a month or 10,000 but if you are not tracking website traffic how can you identify how to improve conversions from your website.
We can set up website analytical tools so that you can see who is visiting your website, how they are getting there, what they are doing when they get there and how many conversions or goals are met once people reach your website. Find out more...
Is your website built Search Engine Friendly?
The next thing to consider is whether you website is built to be search engine friendly. You website may look all singing all dancing but underneath the hood it may not be taking full advantage of coding practices that enhance your contents visibility to search engines. Search engines see text, not all the pretty colours and images, and they use that text to index keyword content. This is a case of making sure that all your links, images and pages have certain coded content filled with relevant contextual information. So for example ensuring that if you have a nice picture of a product that there is also text content added to the code to say what the picture is of. For static websites this is a matter of hard coding, but for dynamic websites we can write code that automatically takes information set when links, pages or images are added and ensures that it is put in the right place.
We can also add microdata to your website, used by search engines to gleam more specific information about the page, such as that it is a page advertising a product, the product is made by a particular brand and costs a certain amount. Find out more...
Content is King
As search engines have moved away from simple keywords, what are called long tailed keywords are more important. That means good, well written content. Search engines like this. The other advantage is that it engages your visitors, prolonging the time spent on your website. It is also very important for inbound marketing and can lead to greater user interaction as they may be inclined to comment on or share your content.
Writing good content can take time though, time that most businesses do not have. We can do it for your and write good copy that will keep your visitors interested. Find out more...
