10 Ways to Build Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Submitted by Teo Graca | RSS Feed | Add Comment | Bookmark Me!

Organic Search results appear in the non-advertising areas of the search engine results page. This is the equivalent of FREE advertising, so search engine optimization (SEO) is a very important strategy for creating a successful website. So, it is imperative that you create an effective SEO strategy to help your web site bring you new customers. Here are 10 ways to improve your search engine optimization strategy.

1. Keywords: Develop unique keywords and relevant titles for each of your web site pages and each article or blog you publish.

2. Content: The depth of research and development applied to your content strategy will be directly proportional to the quality and quantity of traffic you receive in organic search. "Content" includes the written word, applications, widgets, tools and other digital assets.

3. Copywriting: Adding one word or phrase in the right place can increase visibility for a particular keyword. Be careful in your approach, and consider the human element, no matter how tempting it is to over-tweak.

4. Permanent Links: Start the process of cataloging multiple redirects and campaign URL's and set up permanent redirects to make it easier for the engines to find the "real" URL.

5. Interlinking: Link to others web sites, have others link to yours. Writing useful articles that link back to your web site and getting others to use the articles on their websites is one of the best strategies for improving your rankings in the search engines. Most interlinking is currently done mostly through social networking sites like LinkedIn and FaceBook and the thousands of other social media sites out there today. this has come to be considered more of a Social Media Marketing technique, but getting guaranteed social media Buzz is considered advertising. Social Media Advertising is now THE most effective way to get targeted leads to your website and build search engine rankings.

6. Feed submission: Determine which feeds are most relevant to your business (products, maps, etc.) and take steps to provide data to the engines. With placements like Google Maps, a feed could be a quick ticket to a No. 1, No. 2, or No. 3 natural ranking.

7. Title, Keywords and Description: Creating a succinct title and description, to go with your Keywords, is an important part of your meta data strategy for SEO. There are also other meta tags (html tags) that can help build your SEO. Make sure to have a unique title, keyword list and description for each article or page. This will guarantee that the search engines actually index the articles and pages.

8. Linking Architecture: Search engines need a unique URL for each page to actually index each page separately. Using parameters like /ShowArticle.cfm?article_id=14 doesn't work. You could have a million articles linked like this, but the search engines wouldn't know it. Search engines do like URL constructs such as /ShowArticle.cfm/14 - make sure your system works in this way. You can be assured that every article or web page set up correctly will be reviewed by the search engines. This is the best strategy for getting search engines to crawl your site and index content.

9. Clean up broken links: Find and remove permanently broken internal links or set up properly configured 404 error page to improve crawling performance that lets engines know that the old link is history.

10. Limiting Excess Code on your Pages: Make your pages smaller by removing common JavaScript and CSS code to external files. The files are then cached by the browser and your page loads quicker and the search engines can crawl your pages quicker and easier.

These are only a few of the many things you can do to help your SEO. They are free and if you can coordinate all of these things into your web site, they are also very effective.

For coders, these are some of the areas that must be taken into consideration:

*Meta Tags - though your title, keywords and description in your site's meta-tags may have been effective when you launched your site, this can change. Your meta-tags must be tested regularly - it is important to test and re-test your meta data.

*Content - like meta tags, your site content must be updated regularly and must reflect the meta data you are using. When it comes to search engine indexing, the continuity of your meta data and content are checked. Event the order in which your keywords are set and HTML like bold text can make your information easier for the search engine spiders to crawl.

*Links - building links on your site allows you to become more friendly on-line. By making friends virtually, you are increasing your popularity and reputation on-line. This interlinking is an effective strategy to promote your site - the more relevant your links are, the more powerful your web site becomes.

For marketers, this is the most powerful way to build traffic.

*In-Bound Links - Article marketing used to be the best way to build in-bound links. Every site that posts one of your articles becomes a billboard pointing back to your web site. Since then, article syndication has taken over. Imagine having an article on 1,000 web sites - that's 1,000 virtual billboards pointing to your web site. Now imaging 100 articles on 1,000 web site pointing back to your web site - that is 100,000 billboards that make your site one of the highest ranked sites on the Internet. The new best way to build inbound links as well as targeted leads is to use social media advertising, which provides low cost and a high return of targeted leads.

When you implement these Strategies, you'll find two long-term benefits for your website:

  1. This will boost your web site search engine rankings.
  2. This will attract quality targeted traffic to your site.

Hey, Zach - copyright is a matter of intellectual property and copywriting is the all important text you use to make your point. All of these are important and there are more. The meta data is generally your title, keywords, and description. Organizing your content to match the others makes it part how the meta data is ranked by search engines, and even using antiquated HTML tags like H1 are a key to getting better ranking.

Hey Teo, Zach here. I just have a few small suggestions and questions. 1. Are these tips ranked by importance or by the order in which you should do them?2. The section on copy writing, did u mean to say, "Copyrighting," like the copyright symbol, or did you mean what you said, "copy writing?" I also don't get you mean when you said, "over-tweak it."3. What did u mean by, "meta" strategy? Give a definition or expand on it.
