Search Engine Optimization Tips - The Tip Of The Iceberg

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.

Website Copywriting - Increase Your Online Presence

This article focuses on the benefits of local SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and compares it to SEO on a larger scale, perhaps like what big brand names have to engage in.

Search Optimization is effective, but it is more so effective for a local business because of the limitation in the area of service.

With local SEO, you can ensure that your business targets a very specific group of customers that are within the vicinity of your local business.

Search Engine Optimization Definition

Search Engine Optimization, also referred to as SEO, search optimization and website optimization is the practice of "optimizing" a website property so that it is found on search engine search results when individuals type in keywords and phrases that are relevant to the web property's subject matter.

In other words, it is how websites attract targeted and relevant traffic from all those who are searching for it.

Application of SEO Strategies - On Page and Off Page SEO

SEO is executed in two ways, on page and off page. On page SEO refers to edits made to a web property's physical features such as the website's title, description, keyword, body content, sub headings, links as well as the code (meta tags) that is not visible to the naked human eye.

Off page SEO strategies involve link building, social bookmarking, social sharing, video marketing, blogging, commenting on forums, and pretty much anything else that does not impact the physical website itself.

The internet works on the basis of keyword uses. When someone searches for particular keywords, search engines do their best to provide an exact match that would satisfy the search query. The better and more targeted this exchange becomes, the more a search engine's credibility increases and the more users continue to use it.

Keyword Research - Critical Pillar of SEO - Gauging Supply and and Demand Measures

Keyword research is critical to SEO, and is the first step that needs to be executed to engage in effective SEO. Without proper on page SEO, all off page SEO efforts are temporary and short term in nature. In other words, before going out there and investing in internet marketing, one has to make sure their website is sound fundamentally.

Get your house in order before you start marketing it and bringing guests in. Without a properly structured website using the relevant and appropriate keywords, marketing efforts will not be as effective, and will completely die off if one was to stop investing in them on an ongoing basis.

Because the internet works on the basis of keywords, it is important to understand what keywords people are searching for in your industry or niche. The amount of searches conducted on the internet for a particular keyword is referred to as the keyword's demand. The supply on the other hand measures all the outstanding websites on the internet that are competing for that keyword.

As you can imagine, a healthy balance of high demand and low supply is what you want when selecting the keywords to target in your business. It does not make sense targeting search terms that no one is searching for. At the same time, it is not smart trying to outrank websites that are ranking for super competitive keywords. It is possible and we have done it repeatedly, however it takes more time and resources.

Benefits of Local SEO - Separate Yourself from the Rest

Given keyword research is critical and the basis of effective SEO and thus website performance, local SEO narrows your playing field significantly. For example, if a local state based SEO firm was to cater to the entire Nation or world, then a State specific name wouldn't be appropriate. But because the firm mainly operates in the State itself, then a name that reflects its locality makes most sense for the business.

Why? Remember I talked about supply and demand above. Do you think there is more or less supply of SEO firms in the State relative to the entire country? By targeting a narrow or small geographical area, the business is inherently limiting the competitive landscape and giving itself the best opportunity to shine as the best internet marketing company in the State in which it operates. This is increasing the odds of ranking high above the competition on search engines when people in the local area are searching for a local SEO firm within the State itself.

Local SEO has several other advantages. For example, I know for a fact that not every small local business in your area is leveraging the power of SEO, therefore you have a high likelihood of outranking them and therefore attracting more business through your online marketing initiatives.

Can there be a conflict of interest on the business' part? There can, and that's why the business should only take up one client in one industry in one city. For example, the firm should not perform SEO work for two dentists who are both located in Irving, Texas unless of course they want to be found for different key terms. There are sub specialties within dentistry. One might be a general dentist while the other may be a specialist in dental cosmetic surgery. You can just see how local SEO will come into play here.

What I always say is "What Good is your Good Looking & Expensive website when No One can see It?" Therefore, it is best to apply local SEO to get more visibility and attract more business.

Search Engine Optimizer (SEO) - Proposed Scope of Work to Use in Hiring an SEO

The most confusing traffic generation strategy is Search Engine Optimization or SEO. There is so much dialog by so called gurus, that to people starting out, it can be very confusing, overwhelming and sickening...it will have you up at night. You will be in a total state of chaos.

Lets try to unwrap all this dialog and break it down to simple to understand dialog. The first thing anybody needs to know, understand and come to grips with is that traffic from the search engines has more to do with demand than it does with keywords. Simply create a site with good content, easy for users to navigate, and to some extent get the word out across the internet...then you have struck the root of the SEO game. The search engines depend on relevant content from authoritative sources. Search engines are not looking to support webmasters playing the game, they want quality providers of content.

There are literally millions of websites that get traffic from the major search engines that have been built by people that never had any intention of getting traffic. Think about that...millions of sites are getting the traffic with no effort on the site owners part.

Think about all the sites from Blogger.com, MySpace.com and a lot of the sites from colleges and universities that ranked extremely well, yet they are not created by design to get traffic. Quite simply they have good quality content created by people a lot smarter than you and I. Perhaps I should only speak for myself, they are a lot smarter than me.

These sites get incredible rankings, that we can only dream of. The content is generally good, and individuals across the web like it enough to add it as a link or resource on their own sites.

The very simple equation, Content and Links = Search Engine Traffic...period.
No need to be a genius, a mathematical wizard or a guru. The equation works, write it down, post it near your desk, and plan your activities around it.

No magic, no simple route, no overnight success. Write some quality content, where in fact all the words count, not just keywords. The quality content published on your domain, and the quality links pointing to your domain, with a product in demand, and everything will be just fine. The traffic will flow.

So to review what the search engines are really looking for, and to get the organic traffic you so desperately want:

1. Build your site visitor friendly...do not get too technical or hung up on keywords

2. Your on page factors should be the Title Tag, Text Content (quality articles), easy navigation, privacy policy and a site map.

3. Off page factors are incoming quality links.

And that's it! A simple approach to SEO. Test it, try it and when you see the results you will begin to understand how simple the process can really be. Now, I am not saying there is no effort, or it happens overnight, but be patient, make a simple plan, work your plan and see for yourself....

Your plan needs to in place before you begin the process. Make a simple plan and follow it step by step. Keep in mind that those who fail to plan...plan to fail.
