Approach – Understanding the Process
Below are the steps that we will take when providing you with SEO Services:
In this step as a start towards the goal we will need to establish the ground work. We will first review the site and will prepare a report which will consist of the detailed information as to where the website stands right now, and what needs to be done to fulfil the requirements for SEO and set the expectations. Following are the parameters we will be assessing the website on.
On Site Parameters
Onsite SEO covers a very wide range of techniques and when combined together properly, they can ensure that your website is both search engine as well as user friendly, and it will improve your chances of reaching the higher pages on search engines such as Google and Bing. Every SEO company uses different methods of optimizing a website, some cover a few areas whilst others optimize some other. There is nothing cast in stone on how to optimize a website, but there are many areas which are proven to help improve a website's search engine positioning. These are:
1) Search Engine Friendly Content
The content of the website is the crux of healthy website. The Search Engine boats target the content and the keywords highlighted within the content, and based on that they decide the weightage of any individual page; and hence it is very important for any website to have quality content along with a high density keyword richness.
2) Domain Aging
Domain is very crucial for good SEO and most industry experts believe that Domain Aging is very important for "œStability"ÂÂ of the website. It is not an absolutely a "˜must to have' feature but it definitely helps the SEO efforts.
3) Keyword Analysis
Keyword analysis can be important for your company, as these keywords will be the ones which your website will be ranked for. If this step is done incorrectly, not only you will be wasting time but also losing money on keywords which aren't returning the investment. No SEO campaign should be started until you are completely satisfied with the keyword analysis. When it comes to keyword analysis you should ensure that the keywords you choose are competitive and will drive the most traffic to your website.
4) Home Page Size
The concept of "page size" is defined as the sum of the file sizes for all the elements that make up a page, including the defining HTML file as well as all embedded objects (e.g., image files with GIF and JPG pictures).
5) Index Pages
This number is the approximate number of pages on your site that have been stored in the various search engine indexes. The web crawler will visit the website periodically and look for new content for its index. Generally, the more pages your site has within the search engine cache, the better.
6) Internal Linking
Internal linking is what helps search engines navigate around your website to help crawl all the pages you have. The better your internal linking structure, more likely that you will improve your rankings. There are a number of things you must take in to consideration while applying an internal linking structure to your website, such as the number of times you use an anchor text on your website, the number of links you have coming out of a page and the number of times you link to a particular page. By ensuring that your internal linking doesn't come from spammy will help reduce the chances of being penalized by search engines.
7) Page Speed
Page speed became a signal for improving search engine rankings about a year ago and has since become more important as peoples' demand for faster websites has increased. To ensure that you cover this technique, you must ensure that you spend a little more money on a quality website host and also ensure that your website is created with speed in mind.
8) Page Structure
When it comes to page structure, it is important that you structure each and every page correctly as this will lead to "œperfectly"ÂÂ optimized pages. An example of this would be including your keyword within the content a certain number of times, along with linking to certain pages and using your location, for local search. All of these are a great help when it comes to page structure. Although it is difficult to decide on the exact number of times the keywords be used per page, you can make up simple rules for your company to follow. For example only use 2-3 times within the shorter pages and use 4-6 times within the lager pages, as well as using images, page titles and H1/H2 headers.
9) Meta Data
The first thing you should ensure you optimize is the page title of your website. The most commonly followed way of creating a title is to include your main keyword at the beginning, followed by another keyword of less importance. The Meta description should be unique for each page and should be used to entice searchers to visit your website over other websites in the results. A Meta keyword area is available, but Google as well as other search engines announced that this does nothing to help improve your positioning.
Headings are located within the content, starting with an h1 header working down to h6. The h1 is normally the title of the page; the h2 is the sub title, the h3 a sub-sub title, and so on. The more content you have on a page, the more likely you will use more headings. The h1 heading should contain the main keyword you are targeting on a page, this is because it is commonly found at the top of a page which helps search engines identify what a page is about.
11) URL Structure
URL structure is one of the most important and basic elements of SEO and, even in this day and age, far too many sites ignore URL best practices. Following is the structure that we recommend:
12) Alt tags
Alt tags are used on the images you publish around your website to help search engines understand what an image is about. This tag is a great place to insert keywords which are relevant to your page and the content within the page, and can help with your website's SEO rankings. Along with this, Alt tags enable people who cannot see your images to understand what is there. When you are creating an alt tag you should ensure they are short and to the point, usually two or three words should suffice.
There is no right or wrong way to use these alt tags other than spamming the alt tags with keywords which are not relevant to the page or the pages content. If this technique is carried out on your site and you are caught you may be penalized by Google and sent down within the search engine rankings. So whatever you are doing, ensure you do it the right way.
Off Site Parameters
Offsite SEO compliments any onsite SEO that you have carried out on your website. By carrying out offsite SEO you can increase your chance of being seen across the web. Although offsite SEO is able to massively improve your websites rankings it also concentrates on the visibility of your site. Due to the sheer amount of websites out there, there are many things you can do to enhance your rankings and visibility. Here are a few examples:
1) External linking
External linking has been the number one method when it comes to improving your websites rankings for a number of years now. Due to recent algorithm updates by search engines such as Google, getting external links for a website is more challenging as it can have your website penalized. To avoid being penalized, a quality external linking strategy must be implemented over a certain period of time. By being careful with where you get your links from, you can help improve your websites position depending on the quality of your back linking portfolio.
2) Social media
Social media is becoming very big nowadays and it is used every day by millions of people worldwide. However, not only is it getting big for personal use, it is also getting big for optimization purposes. If you are not using these social media websites nowadays you are missing out on a very big step which can help to promote your business online. Social media websites that are used by businesses to promote themselves are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Google+. By keeping your social media profiles up to date frequently will help you promote your business online.
The most ethical way of getting links to your website is through linkbaiting. Linkbaiting is a method of enticing webmasters to link to your website, through using innovate ideas such as videos, images, games, etc. If it is something people will like, webmasters are more likely to link to it than other websites.
By submitting articles around the web you may be able to attract some high quality backlinks. These articles will be posted in portals that are relevant to your industry. Articles can also be used to promote new services and offers your business may have available that customers are unaware of.
If your business is accessible by the public, having your location available online is the perfect way to help attract new customers. There are many services available on the web to help get your company on maps, such as Google Places, Yelp, and Bing maps.
