What is SEO and WHY should YOU care?
OK, let's get down to the basics. What is SEO? Well, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and guess what... it’s a HUGE key to success with online marketing. SEO is the process of affecting the visibility of a website through a search engine's organic search results.
Now, many of you have probably heard, through social media, that organic traffic is not valuable. Well, DON'T BE FOOLED. Natural, organic traffic is STILL HUGELY VALUABLE. There are millions of people, let me repeat that...MILLIONS of people who are searching, every single day for information...and YOU want to be there when people are searching for what YOU'VE got!
Truth be told...we can literally talk SEO all. day. long. But, the reality is I have broken this down into the three (3) most IMPORTANT tips that you should/need to be aware of as an ONLINE Marketer...ready:
1) Words Matter...for SEO
OK, so if you own a website, the fact is that SEARCH RESULTS MATTER. The key to higher website rankings is making sure that your website has the ingredients that search engines NEED for their recipes. Search engines account for EVERY WORD on the web, so it is important that your website has the words that will grab your leads when they are doing their searches.
Here's an example: if someone searches for, let's say, 'shoe repair' on Google, well, you will need to make sure that YOUR website has 'shoe repair' as one of its key components to that your website will naturally appear in the search engine.
2) Title TAGS Matter
Each page on the web has an OFFICIAL TITLE. The titles on your website are VITAL to your organic leads because search engines PAY a lot of attention to titles. This is not high school ya'll. Titles often provide a summary of the content that can be found on a given webpage, similar to how titles of books can reflect, in most cases, and summarize the contents that are in the book. The titles that you choose to display on your website will ultimately influence the leads that you receive via search engines. Simple, right! ;)
3) Inbound LINKS Matter, too!
OK, so when one link leads to another web page, it is a recommendation to readers that there is good information for them to find. A web page that contains multiple links leading to it looks very positive to search engines, and will ultimately attract more visitors. By being purposeful about where you place links and the content that these links present, you can attract more web traffic.
Your SEO strategy will certainly affect the success of your online business.
It is important to be aware that SEO is changing. You really need to have influential sites that link to you in order to have the BEST SHOT at higher rankings.
Take the time to apply these three (3) basic tips to your SEO strategy.
You webpage will receive many more ORGANIC leads which will take you one step closer to growing your business. This is the ultimate goal!
