Simplifying SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

by

In my many years as an SEO consultant the one thing that is prevalent above all else is the confusion that business owners feel about Local Search Engine Marketing.  Hearing too many things from too many “experts” leaves a cloudy path to success.  Let’s clear this up with the basics of SEO.

In Logical order.

1.  You need a good platform. (a good website).  All too often I see people asking why their site is not coming up on search engines.  My answer: not all things are created equal, and some website have better coding.  The architecture of the site, the bones, hold it up and let it do what it needs.  If your site has weak bones then you will find it difficult to get found.

2. You need good Content. Search engines are simply word counters, as of right now, they don’t care how pretty your website is, they just care that it has content that matches what people are looking for.  They determine this by simply reading what people can read on the page and if you have good content.  As a rule, if you do not have the readable content on your page that people are looking for you can’t show up.  In our industry, if anyone suggests anything different should have never left their previous career.

3. Everything else. Until you have the first two requisites in place, don’t worry about anything else ie. Link’s, Social Media, Meta Data, Micro Data, Off Page Factors, Google Adwords etc. You could have the best inbound links in the world coming to your site, but if you don’t have the right content or a good platform, you will be disappointed.

Here are some general rules that can help you on your way: Flash based is bad; Tables based website are like mullets, they really weren’t great even in the 90’s, but now its just down right irresponsible to have them.  CSS, HTML, XML is good; A content management system is a must. and be prepared to invest a little bit of time into your web presence.  Like all things in your business it take time and attention to do it right.

What to do next?  Contact a trusted and reputable SEO Company that has multiple examples of the success they have helped businesses achieve.
