SEO (Search Engine Optimization) - Traffic To Your Site

Bounce rate as I have defined in the past is the percentage of your website's visitors who leave your website after only visiting one page. It doesn't matter how much or little time which they spend on that one page which they first arrive at; if they do not click on an internal link to visit another page on your site then that counts as a bounce. This begs the question about SEO bounce rate and whether or not does it affect how a page ranks in Google if say the bounce rate is too high. The answer is yes but mostly no.

Yes

At first glance, SEO bounce rate could be a very effective metric for determining the value of a web page or website. Most webmasters strive to get their rate as low as possible because a high rate suggests that your site isn't offering a lot of quality content, hence people are leaving your site without visiting more than one page.

No

The larger answer is no, SEO bounce rate is not a significant ranking factor. The reason is that there are too many reasons a good and quality website can have a high bounce rate. If someone visits a web page and finds exactly what they wanted to learn on that first page, there is little reason for them to visit another page. In that case, you can have a very high rate while having a very satisfied visitor-base.

Alternatively, say that you have a website which ranks so well in the SERPs that you not only rank atop Google for the keywords which you are targeting, but you're also ranking well for keywords which you never intended to target and aren't 100% relevant to the content of your site. This happens frequently for well ranking sites and consequently those sites will receive a lot of untargeted traffic which will undoubtedly exit that website just as quickly as they arrived there after not finding what they want.

This is of course not that webmaster's fault, so SEO bounce rate cannot be given a great deal of credibility in terms of negatively affecting a website's ranking. There are plenty of things similar to this where the webmaster cannot be punished because it's generally as a result of things which are beyond their control. Fortunately Google and other search engines are intelligent about this and do not lay down the punishment.

Video SEO is about optimising the search potential for online videos.

There are a few simple tips which can be applied easily to any online video to yield better SEO for your video.

1. Target Keywords for Video SEO

Selecting appropriate target keywords for your video is the first important tip in relation to video SEO. Each video should not use more than two or three keywords. The keywords must be such that they give an exact idea of the video content.

After you have selected your target keywords these are to be used wherever possible - in the title, tags, description etc. When you create back links to your video use these target keywords. By selecting good target keywords and optimising your video to use them, your video will be ranked more highly for the same search terms.

Google, probably the most popular search engine, owns YouTube. As such, posting your video on YouTube possibly affords some advantage for your video so far as video SEO is concerned.

You are not in any way restricted in posting your video to any number of sites in the internet, but you should give major consideration to a posting on YouTube.

3. Separate page for each video

If you want strong SEO for your video you should create separate page for each. As each page has a unique URL, each of your videos will also get unique URL which gives certain advantages like using your target keywords in the page title, metadata and in the description of your video on this page.

4. Adding a Video Transcript

In order to improve SEO for your videos, you should seriously consider adding a video transcript. Transcripts generate data which are read by search engines. Search engines cannot watch your video directly. The transcript generated for your video is an excellent way for additional use your target keywords.

5. Creating inbound links to Your Video

One of the key facets of SEO is to get other sites in the internet linking to your video. These are called back links. Back Links from relevant and popular sites, targeting keywords while referring to your podcasts are most beneficial for SEO.

Blog comments and forum postings by adding the URL to your video are also popular and easy ways to create back links.

However, you should keep in mind that the link must not be out of place for the readers of the blog or forum as in that case your comment or post can be treated as spam and will eventually be removed or will be ignored for being not interesting.

In order to improve SEO you should bookmark your video in social bookmarking sites like Digg, Stumble Upon, Delicious etc. When you bookmark your video on all these sites and use your target keywords while doing it inbound links to your video is created which increases the chance of more people viewing it. Put buttons next to your video so that viewers who like it can easily add a link to one or more social bookmarking sites of their choice.
