Are you willing to take your SEO Services to the next level? Then you should read on how you can do that. The internet marketing is developed in a higher phase that brings you great benefits to your business.
In the digital world, internet plays a very important role in Search Engine Marketing. The idea of using internet to sell is likely to be the first choice in a marketing business today. Most of businesses in the world have a website as a way to promote their products and services, which means, more websites are built everyday.
How to Promote Your Business With the Best SEO Services
In this era of recession, one of the most popular strategies adopted to be in touch with customers is Search Engine Optimization. It is the best way to advertise a product or service. In fact, internet marketing gets a boost with the use of SEO techniques. SEO or search engine optimization works on the basis of content, keyword and back links.
SEO developers assure their clients about the type and variety of content required for their website. Content is expected to be rich in information, quality and vocabulary and target the right audience. SEO techniques are also used for locating the keywords for the product or service. There are several keywords used for content writing on a specific topic, however; the best and most commonly used keywords which relate to the product or service are selected using SEO techniques.
Search Engine Optimization also works in creating effective resource box. From this place, the client actually gets connected to his customers. If the article or content is presented in prolific manner, the traffic is bound to visit the website quite often.
Promoting such product or service is also possible with social media marketing. The technique has fast emerged as a source of viral marketing where information is passed among the people in network within seconds. Social media marketing came into existence when new applications to create a network of people came into existence. On a single networking platform, several applications are used and messages are shared. You can view messages quite easily and share them among people who are close to you in your life and profession.
Along with Search Engine Optimization, SEO developers don't forget to work thoroughly with graphic design. Designs attract and appeal. The graphic design developers have the potential to design the websites using the best web design software. They not only aim to enhance the appeal but provide a quick means in the form of website to keep the clients visiting quite often. Graphic design people are accommodating updates several times a year to suit client requirements.
It has become quite impossible to stay without Search Engine Optimization. New ideas and techniques are introduced every day on the net platform. Every website owner intends to receive maximum number of visits. Maximum visits should be fruitful. It is expected to be converted into generating revenues for the company. At the same time, it is significant to keep in mind the use of right and correct information. The information shouldn't be misleading and difficult to understand. It must carry a purpose. The purpose to sell the product could be well-achieved by using other internet marketing tools like affiliate marketing. Every time, someone clicks on an advertisement, the client is bound to pay the person who has agreed to display the advertisement. With pay per click and pay per sale options, it is quite easy to make customers, somewhat, permanent clients of the organization. Search Engine Optimization techniques are, thus, considered the best web marketing tools to establish connection with prospective buyers.
How to Choose the Best SEO Company?
About 5 years ago, the web has seen an explosion of social websites. From social networking to social bookmarking, from digging to stumbling, the web has changed significantly. Finally, the internet has reached a stage, where it lives up to its earlier goals of freedom, democracy and independence.
Yet, we see hundreds and thousands of companies and individuals trying to manipulate search engine rankings through old SEO techniques. We see link farms still existing and people are still buying high PR links. SEO has become hogwash and people are spending huge amounts of time and money on nothing.
If you look beyond, Search Engines themselves have lost ground when it comes to traffic. Earlier everybody started on Google and that was their home page. Today, most people's home page is Facebook or orkut. The social web is here and you can remain in denial and suffer or accept it and progress.
Here I would like to introduce the concept of Online Visibility Marketing. OVM is a term that I coined while sipping a cup of coffee last night. So, what do I mean when I say OVM?
OVM is a blend of SEM, SMO, SEM, Social Marketing and Viral Marketing. Basically, OV or Online Visibility is exactly what it means, how visible are you on the web. Not your website, not your blog, how visible are "YOU" as a brand.
Whether its on the Search Engine or on social media sites or whether its your text ads that are appearing. Online Visibility is the sum total exposures that you are presenting on the web.
For example for a client of mine, which was engaged in Traditional SEO with us, we got him "visible" on the 2nd position for one of the most highly competitive keywords you can imagine and that too in two days! It would have taken at least 18 months of article submissions, directory submissions and other SEO efforts to get in the Top 10 for this keyword.
Don't get me wrong. I am not advertising some new "fad marketing" that is going to come and go. Nor am I talking about some "tricks". I am talking to you about the future of the web. And because the internet has such a furious pace, the future is not tomorrow, its NOW.
Search Engine Optimization - How To Get 1st Page Results
Google doesn't stop innovating their search engine, and there where others try to follow, Google is not just 1 step ahead, but 10 steps ahead. Their latest innovation, which actually may already be in place for a year or longer, can be found in the patent: "Information Retrieval Based on Historical Data."
The abstract of the patent is: "A system identifies a document and obtains one or more types of history data associated with the document. The system may generate a score for the document based, at least in part, on the one or more types of history data".
This article has the goal to give a implified representation of this patent + contains recommendations as to what would be the best SEO techniques to obtain high rankings, with a specific focus on links. This article is the opinion of the writer and following recommendation in this article is done at your own risk.
Google's search results have been increasingly difficult to explain and many theories have been developed on what is going on. Most popular is the "sand box" theory, which says that a new site is put in a virtual sand box and has to wait until it has aged before obtaining high rankings. This patent has some excellent information that can explain this phenomenon.
The information that this invention of Google is claimed to retrieve based on the historical data are:
A score is calculated based on the above 3 factors which can then, at least partially, be used to rank the selected pages.
The patent describes a huge amount of historical data. The following is an overview of most items for which historical data can be measured:
- Anchor Texts
Ranking Based On Information Retrieved From Historical Data
The patent describes in quite a lot of detail how selected pages are ranked based on the information retrieved from historical data. This chapter will describe the basic logic applied.
Of all historical data a date of inception is used to determine 4 important values:
- Average Age
- Average Date
These factors can be determined for pages, links, anchor text, content, topics, queries, etc. Comparing the age or date of a page to the average of the site for example tells the search engine if this information is relatively new or old.
Comparing the average age or date of a page to the average age or date of all pages selected for a query (keyword phrase) tells the search engine if the page is relatively new or old. This information can be used to rank the selected pages.
Comparing to an average has the advantage that there is no preset base of rules that determine the rankings of a page. For one query 6 months may be considered new (product descriptions for example) while for another page 6 days may be considered old (news items for example). It all depends on the average age.
This same logic applies to links. In order to determine how popular a page or site is, the average age of all back links tells the search engine if the popularity of the page is recent or not. It makes sense that if most back links have been obtained 4 years ago and that hardly anybody has been interested to link to this page/site since then, that the page is not as popular as the existing back links would suggest.
The patent goes even as far as determining age factors for anchor texts of links.
Information changes over time. Opinions change, knowledge changes, popularity changes, etc. Like mentioned before, a page that was popular 4 years ago, may be totally forgotten now, but still have most of its backlinks that were obtained when the page actually was popular. However, if this page all the sudden becomes popular again, and new back links start showing up, the average age of the backlinks will remain high. This will prevent the page of ranking high.
Detecting changes is crucial to give old information the chance to rank high again. Consequently, the lack of change can be a reason to lower the rank of a page.
Even though comparing to averages is a great way to get information about freshness, it fails to recognize smaller events like a sudden increase in popularity of a page. Though detecting changes do help to recognize smaller events, more information can be obtained by detecting trends.
Sudden increases of popularity can be caused by seasonal events like Christmas or the Super Bowl. For this reason the search engine will try to determine trends within pages links, anchor text, content, topics, queries, etc. Detecting trends makes it possible to rank pages higher that would not be ranked high with the standard ranking methods or with comparing to average ages or dates. Google has recognized here a very important fact of information: Relevance and importance of information is (con)temporary.
Detecting Spam Using Historical Data
Having all kinds of historical data available can be used to detect search engine spam. Unexpected events that happen to a site can be an indication of spam. Obviously a strong improvement of 1 single factor would not be a direct indication of spam, generally multiple factors are showing strange behavior when a site is using spam to increase rankings. It would not be in Google's interest to penalize a site for advertising. However, excessive advertising in sites/pages that are totally unrelated will not do your site any good.
Nothing changed in regards to links. This patent pretty much confirms what we already knew and have been explaining to our customers as well. The following recommendations can be helpful:
Keep links related
Related links matter, unrelated links can be considered spam.
Build links on a continuous moderate bases
As the patent describes, the average age of your backlinks should not be too high. It is therefore wise to continue adding backlinks to secure a reasonable average age of all your backlinks. How many you need to add over time depends on your market.
Be better than the average
Very important is to be better than the average, but don't overdo it. It would be expensive and unnecessary.
Focus on seasonal events
A good way to increase the success of your website is to set up text link campaigns for seasonal events. Start your advertising campaign 2 to 3 months before the actual event to give Google the time to find the links and update your site's information with it. After the event you can let these links go again.
Spread links over multiple sites (unique backlinks)
A very important factor is the number of unique websites in your backlinks. Google seems to put a strong emphasis on this factor.
