More About Search Engine Optimization
Appearing in Google’s regular search results is free, but it’s difficult to rank highly. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is simply a name describing the variety of tactics used to help a website appear higher for relevant queries (keywords) in the free section of search results. Showing up higher (and in more places) means that your website gets more visitors and you get more qualified leads.
There are over 200 factors that influence how Google and other search engines decide to rank your website. This video from Google gives a general overview of how Google search works; it boils down to the relevance and authority of the content on your website (increased by On-Site SEO) and how well established your website is online (improved by Off-Site SEO). The better your on-site and off-site online presence is optimized, the higher your website will rank in search results, which means your website will get more traffic and your business will get more leads.
On-site SEO is all about making it easier for search engines to find, understand, and trust your content as being relevant to users. Google’s goal is to show users websites that are most likely to answer a user’s query. On-site SEO gives Google the data it needs to understand the content and value of individual pages, as well as the site as a whole. There are two main components to on-site SEO: technical SEO and on-page SEO.
When trying to understand your website and the pages that comprise it, search engines rely on information that users don’t see on the page itself. Technical SEO focuses on the behind-the-scenes work of optimizing the code that makes up your website to make sure that search engines can find the site, understand its content, and properly index it so that it shows more often (and higher) in search results. This type of SEO organizes your website in a format that Google understands and can use. You might have a great-looking business website that you paid a lot of money to make, but if Google can’t access and understand the information on the website as you intend it, that expensive website isn’t going to show up very well in search results. Without solid technical SEO, a search engine might not show your site to users when it should, and users won’t click to visit your website as often as they should. There’s typically a lot of upfront work involved with technical SEO, followed by ongoing maintenance to ensure that everything is up to snuff when new content is added or changed.
On-page SEO makes the visible content of individual pages as relevant, informative, and valuable as possible, both to users and to Google. It helps the user quickly scan the page, while finding the information they want. It helps Google understand what the page is about and how it can help searchers find what they’re looking for. In addition to optimizing the content you already have, on-page SEO involves creating new supporting content on a regular basis, increasing the depth of information on the page, and keeping the content fresh (both of which help the page show up higher and more often for relevant Google search results). Google compiles data on what search queries were used by people when they clicked on your site. Analyzing that data can lead to expanding a particular section on the page itself or adding an entirely new page (or blog post) about the topic.
Off-site SEO is all about establishing and promoting your business entity online, getting in front of potential customers, and helping those users (and Google) to better trust and understand your business. All of this results in more visibility for your website in search results, which brings your website more traffic and leads. Off-site SEO has three main components: Online Directories & Citations, Online Reviews & Reputation Management, and Link Building Outreach.
Reviews can make (or break) your business’ online reputation. Potential clients will read reviews about your business online when they’re deciding whether or not to buy from you. It’s critical that there’s an overwhelming amount of positive reviews (from real clients) to drown out the negative ones. But how do you get positive online reviews? Using ethical strategies, we help your business get reviews from customers that will encourage searchers to become warm leads. We can also advise you on how to respond to reviews, both positive and negative. While you can’t stop negative reviews from being written (and typically can’t even get them removed), you can make sure your voice is heard by responding to reviews, showing potential clients how you treat customers, listen to them, and value their feedback. Effectively responding to negative reviews may just be the thing that turns a potential client into a life-long customer.
According to a recent study, links pointed to a website is the #1 ranking factor that Google uses to decide what page to show users. Think of a link from one site to another as a vote of confidence. Google sees all of the votes for a particular website, which helps Google decide how much it can trust showing a page to a user in a search result. Link building involves various strategies to encourage relevant websites to link to yours. This can be things like writing posts for an industry blog that links back to your company’s website, asking to be included on websites that have a resource page which lists industry businesses, and much more. In addition to the SEO value of getting backlinks, well-placed brand mentions and links can bring relevant users to your site, giving you more warm leads.
