Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is the active practice of optimizing a web site by improving internal and external aspects in order to increase the traffic the site receives from search engines.
SEO considers:
How Google’s “unknown” search engine algorithm works (i.e. guessing the KFC secret recipe)
How the algorithm weights certain website elements more heavily when popular keywords are used
Example: using a keyword in a URL vs. text on a web page
What keyword terms & phrases people use to search
–Once you have this knowledge you can edit a site’s content to increase the relevance to specific keywords: search position ↑ & web traffic ↑
SEO uses popular KWs in certain places
SEO uses relevant keywords (KWs) widely searched for by consumers
Ex: a candy store would probably want to use “candy, chocolate, etc.”
You identify the most popular searched for KWs then include them on your site in strategic ways / in certain areas of your web pages
First thing to do: discover what KWs are most searched (related to your biz)
Free tool: Google Keyword Tool
Good SEO
SEO helps your site appear earlier (i.e. higher) in search engine results page (SERP)
The higher the position, the more traffic a site will receive
Important Factors to Improve SEO
To optimize a site for a search engine use KWs as follows:
Put KWs in the URL (Domain name) – yoursite.com
Put KWs in a web page’s title (in HTML code this is the tag)<br /> Place a KW as the first word in the <title><br /> Put KWs in the Header text (in HTML code this is the <H1> tag)<br /> Place a KW as the first word in the <H1><br /> Using KWs in links (i.e. the linked text) within your site:<br /> Instead of: click here to view the FSU marketing department<br /> Use this: click here to view the FSU marketing department<br /> KW density on a page (how often you repeat the same KW)<br /> **External links: number (& quality) of links pointing to your site<br /> **New trend: social media is becoming a factor</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">SEOmoz.com is an example of</div> <div class="flash-flex">Conducted in-depth research to determine search ranking factors<br /> uses a panel of search marketing experts</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">Want KWs in a Domain Name?</div> <div class="flash-flex">You can search for and register a domain name (i.e. URL) with KWs<br /> I have used & recommend GoDaddy.com to register domain names</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">Meta tags</div> <div class="flash-flex">information that describes something about the page<br /> Meta tags not presented on web pages (but, description is on SERP)<br /> An overrated SEO factor</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">Meta Description</div> <div class="flash-flex">Meta Description: A brief statement summarizing the page (use KWs)<br /> Keep them short and simple: don’t overstuff with KWs<br /> Try not to exceed 156 characters</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">Meta Keywords</div> <div class="flash-flex">Meta Keywords: comma separated list of important KWs & phrases<br /> Try not to exceed 255 characters</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">SEO Example: Dog Et Al</div> <div class="flash-flex">Putting keywords in the domain name (aka URL)<br /> Instead of: dogetal.com<br /> Optimized url: “TallahasseeHotDogRestaurant.com” or “TallahasseeHotDogs.com”<br /> Possible issue: improve SEO versus a branded name<br /> Putting keywords in the web page’s title<br /> Dog et al’s <title>: “Dog et al > Home”<br /> An optimized title would be ”Hot Dogs in Tallahassee at Dog et al”<br /> Putting keywords in the “header” tags of a web page<br /> Instead of </p> <h1> Welcome to Dog et al</h1> <p> (note first word(s))<br /> Use </p> <h1>Tallahassee Hot Dogs at Dog et al</h1> <p> or </p> <h1>Dog et al: Hot Dogs in Tallahassee</h1> </div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">How to view what KW tactics a site is using</div> <div class="flash-flex">View what KW tactics a site in a top position is using<br /> To do this you need to = View the Source Code.</div> </div> <div class="flash-flex"> <div class="flash-flex hw-first-col"></div> <div class="flash-flex hw-central-block">Some important factors that negatively affect SEO:</div> <div class="flash-flex">-Buying links (exchange programs) and linking with spam sites<br /> -Overstuffing (i.e. too lengthy) domain name and title tag<br /> -Too many ads on a page<br /> -Hiding text with similar/same color as background<br /> Example: Google<br /> -Excessive repetition of keywords on pages<br /> You should present KWs and page text in a manner similar to having a conversation.
