No Point Building a Site if No One Finds it When They Search Google
If I build it they will come, Right?
Just because you build a website doesn't mean you will all of a sudden come up in the search results when people search for your product or service. Any of you that have an exciting site most likely have already experienced first hand how hard it is to be found in basic search queries.
That's why during the planning phase of a website your SEO strategy must be completely entwined with what your building. From how the site is structured down to the words you use to communicate to your site visitors. And even then, done right you've only completed about half the battle. Once the site is fully optimized and you've got all the right elements in place to please the "Google Gods", there's a great deal of work that needs to take place off-site to build your authority and ranking.
Research is a huge component to everything we do, but it's even more imperative for a solid SEO strategy. Keyword research, user engagement research, competitive analysis are just a few things that go into the planning portion of your SEO plan. Understanding what the competition is doing and what keywords are hotter than others doesn't just mean search numbers. We often look at quick wins in niche aspects of your market where you can get ahead without having to spend as much time and money ranking for more competitive terms.
So as you can image, SEO optimized content is really important. It's extremely important to have a content syndication roll-out calendar determined for the year so new content that matters to your audience is constantly added to your site. This is where a great blog strategy comes in, press releases and social media can be a huge benefit.
The biggest thing to remember when doing SEO is that the work never ends. You need to look at it like running ads. As soon as you stop the ad you stop the leads. Same is the case when building and maintaining your ranking.
Above all else, we complete only ethical SEO practices and procedures. This is an extremely important aspect of our business. It takes time to increase your ranking and a staggering amount of tactics that all work together.
But Google, as well as other search engines, want to provide the most authentic content they can to their users. They don't want people manipulating the system as that jeopardizes their ability to do that. As a result, they are constantly working to foil those sites and companies out there that are trying to beat the system.
This is important because non-ethical practices yield results much quicker. But you run the risk of losing everything you have gained while being in jeopardy of actually getting penalized by the Google Gods. Google is constantly changing their algorithm to battle the SEO cheaters, so you never know when you could drop due to not playing fair.
Our philosophy is, PLAY NICE and you will win in the end. If you're seeing an increase in your business ranking, more leads coming in and positive value added to your business, you're on the right track and you'll get where you want to go. Without sweating every night if an update will ruin it all.
