Search Engine Optimization

Starting With On-Page Optimization, Ethical SEO Gets You Found

Most of the traffic on the internet today is driven by the three major commercial search engines, Google, Bing and Yahoo!. You can generate traffic to your website with social media and other methods such as email campaings, but search engines are still the main way people look for and find stuff on the internet. With the ease-of-use that mobile search brings, this trend is certainly not going to reverse itself either.

So, what do search engines do?

They provide targeted traffic - people who are searching for goods and services, to a set of results based on their query. The art of SEO is having your website appear as one of the results. Preferably as close to the top of the list as possible. If the search engines can't find your site, you're missing out on a great opportunity to increase your exposure and drive traffic to your website. Investing in SEO can produce a great ROI when compared with other types of promotion and marketing.

Search Engine Optimization In a Nutshell

Understand Your Target Market

One of the most important SEO strategies is to know your audience. Once you understand what your target market is looking for, you can reach out to them more effectively. You should have some understanding of this before you even begin your website development, but this is paramount when it comes to SEO.

When someone uses a search engine and finds your website, will they find what they were looking for? Search engines answer this question literally millions of times each day. That means the results must be relavent to their query. So ask yourself - is your website is giving your users the content they are looking for?

If not, there's a few things to look at. Are you targeting the right market? Is your content consistant with what your market is looking for? There are quite a few possible solutions.

Cretate Content for Human Users - NOT Search Engines

There are generally three types of search engine queries that people make:
"Doing" - These are transactional queries where the user wants to do somethiing, such as purchase concert tickets or listen to music.
"Knowing" - These are informational queries where the user wants to know something, such as a particular showtime or the best reasturant in Charlotte.
"Going" - These are navigational queries where the user wants to go to a specific place on the internet, such as Twitter or the homepage of ESPN.

How people use search engines has changed over the years, but the overall concept is as basic today as it was in the beginning...

Someone Has a Need

Looking for Something?

It all starts when someone needs something. They could be at home at their computer, or in downtown Anytown on their phone. Search engines have become the first port-of-call when something needs to be found. Except maybe your eyeglasses or car keys...
