ONLINE MARKETING TIPS

SEO-INTRODUCTION

Internet has become a powerful marketing source for the benefit of mankind. Many websites are available in the

internet, fulfilling various purposes. These websites need to be in the top rankings in the search engines to maintain

its popularity and to increase the volume of traffic to the site. Search Engine optimization (SEO) serves the above

purpose. If the pages of the website are optimized with high targeted key words, the rank of the site increases.

Higher the rank, higher is the amount of visitors to the site.

Maintenance of Ranks:

Search engine Optimization involves a number of techniques to increase the ranking and sales of the website

through search engines. Some of the points to be noted for Search engine optimization are,

Keywords: The web pages should be rich in content, communicative and item-specific. The web pages should

contain the highly specific keywords which are frequently searched by the users. This helps to increase the position

of the website in the search engine. For optimization purpose, the pages should be checked with keyword density

analyzers.

Link Popularity: The links in the website is marked factor which decides the ranking of the website. The number of

incoming links which conjoin to various files, directories, keywords and also to other sites is called as link

popularity.

Good Content: The content of the website should be periodically updated so that it becomes alive and effective. The

website should contain good content for the visitors to use it efficiently. Also, the content’s flow throughout the

page should be relevant. Thus clarity and relevancy are the key points to be noted for search engine optimization.

Pay Per Click: Another method of increasing the website’s popularity is pay per click advertisements. According to

this method, the website owner maintains an agreement with the search engine on a specific keyword. Every time

when a user clicks the keyword, the owner is supposed to pay a specific amount mentioned in the agreement. Thus

the ranking of the site is increased followed by good volume of traffic.

Accordant Title Tags: Relevant title tags and meta tags should be given to the web page for user convenience. The

title tags should be shorter in length with 6-8 words and should not be too critical to analyze. The description tag is

also required to describe briefly the content of the web page. Readability will also increase the number of visitors to

the site.

Web Design Factors: The factors involving web site design also affects the ranking of the website. Some of them are;

Frames: Certain search engines are not compatible using frames. For the website which uses frames, they should

also use NOFRAMES section in each page to avoid the above said backward compatibility of certain search

engines.

Better Indexing: Avoiding graphics in the web pages containing keywords will help in better indexing of the search

engines. If the html code is less, then the search engine can access it faster and easier. Search engines are not

comfortable with the pages which are more than 100 Kbps.

Things to be Avoided: Flash should be avoided in a web page since it takes more time to explain a single concept

and also to load. PDF s should be avoided since there is no summary of the concept in the HTML. This reduces the

ranking of the website. Frames also should be avoided.

It is better to create the website with the following guidelines rather than to alter it depending upon the

consequences. Thus, care should be taken to during creation and maintenance of the website to place it in the higher

position of the search engine.

BASIC SEO BASIC SEO STEPS

  • 1. Choose relevant keywords for your site: It must be ensured that keywords chosen reflect the site’s purpose and

    content. Keywords and phrases which your target audience searches for should be selected. There is no point in

    using keywords or key phrases which nobody searches for. Any site needs targeted traffic and thus make sure that

    only relevant audience which may benefit or buy products from your site visits. So choose your keywords wisely.

    There are various keyword research tools – both free and paid which may help you in selecting the best keywords for

    you.

  • 2. Keyword rich relevant content: A website should have excellent content reflecting the sites purpose and

    intentions. Care should be taken that keywords and phrases are not stuffed in the content. Keyword stuffing maybe

    construed as spamming by search engines.

  • 3. Proper use of Title tags: Any webpage should have title tag with the keywords that you have chosen. This is

    single most important aspect of search engine optimization.

  • 4. H1 tags with keywords for content titles: Content titles should have targeted keywords using H1 tags.
  • 5. Link optimization: Placing targeted keywords into the links is an important factor because search engine robots

    read the links as they crawl the webpage. Their algorithms understand the association between the anchor text and

    the page that has been linked.

  • 6. Image Optimization: A SEO Consultant must also ensure that images used in the website have descriptive,

    keyword-rich alternative attributes (alt) that are useful for visitors and search engines alike.

  • 7. Sitemap: Sitemap with text links to all the pages of a website is very important to ensure that search engines bots

    crawl every webpage.

  • 8. Directory structure: A SEO specialist should ensure that website should have a flat directory structure.
  • 9. A website should be listed in open directory. And as part of regular site SEO maintenance a site submitted to

    trusted, human-reviewed online directories.

  • 10. Meta tags: All the web pages in a site should have keyword-rich Meta descriptions. Though, their importance

    has decreased in last few years, using them appropriately is advisable.

  • Rather than rankings and traffic, focus on conversions – that is, impact on revenue – as measures of success.
  • Calculate the ROI of our organic traffic as you would do for all other medium. Free organic traffic is
    possible, but investments are needed to attract masses and make changes to website, so you should invest
    resources, either with an agency or in-house people. Taking all the expenditure into account will give you
    an idea of how much profit you are getting from your organic traffic.
  • Keep in mind the possible downfalls of making your site focused on conversions. An often repeated truism
    in SEO circle is that content is all important when it comes to SEO. Yet there is a trade-off between content
    and usability or design; you should neglect neither. Including more content on the page should not hurt the
    conversions of the website.
  • Choose carefully and optimize SEO landing pages. Landing page optimization is as important in paid
    search campaigns as in organic SEO campaigns; both should be highly efficient in converting incoming
    traffic. A useful tool to test the success of SEO landing pages before you target them is Ad Words.
  • Optimize the snippet that appears on the search results page. This is the user’s first interaction with your
    website, and ultimately may determine the click through rate from visitors coming from search engines.
  • Use internal search to expand your keyword targeting on search engines and to give customers what they
    are looking for. Optimizing SEO by measuring the success of keywords bringing traffic to the website is
    great, but by doing that you lose a precious source of keywords your customers are typing in your website,
    i.e. your internal site search. This is what they are really looking for, and you should check if you are
    targeting those keywords.
