Pieces of the SEO Puzzle
Do you have a Web site that is not receiving enough traffic? Or that is receiving traffic from unrelated keywords? Then you will want to read our search engine optimization tips and info. Let us help you put this puzzle together!
SEO service used to be more technical. We reviewed Website structure/architecture, programming code and more very thoroughly. Now-a-days, SEO generally isn’t as complicated, because many small-business Websites are on search-friendly systems like WordPress.
Warning! Some Website templates may not be search friendly, or easy to modify and optimize. Asking a company if sites in their network are search-friendly is not enough. They may show you examples of Website search listings, but that does not necessarily mean anything. Contact us for consulting help to determine the best system for you.

Other important parts of a Website for search are navigation (how people and search engines find pages within a site), meta tags, title tags, image alt tags, page load time, errors, design, site maps, redirects, multiple domains, error 404 pages, design and usability issues.
Site statistics can be very important as a tool to help optimize and improve your Website. We use Google Analytics to analyze site traffic and user behavior. A piece of code is put on every page in order track information. This is free, and easier to access and analyze than other hosting company statistics software.
Quality text or content that is helpful to users is crucial for a good Website. A quality site with meaningful information built around a keyword strategy attracts search engines. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to spend time on developing content for your site on a regular basis. We can help you with that!
Does your site use targeted keywords? For example, if you are a travel agent, are you using the keyword “travel” on your site? Or is it more targeted like “honeymoon packages?” If you are not using targeted keywords selected through research you are missing a large part of your potential audience.
Your Internet marketing efforts should be based on solid keyword research. Your Web site cannot be optimized for search engines without a list of targeted keyword phrases. You could be surprised at what the best keywords are for your site!
Another big change on the Internet marketing and SEO scene is Social Media. This is where we spend most of our time–in social media management services, instead of constantly-changing search engine optimization techniques.
Social networks send “social signals” to search engines, helping them determine which sites are popular and reputable. Social can be a great source of site traffic if done properly.
