Search Engine Optimisation and Website Optimization
From an SEO companies perspective; there are two elements, the in-site or website optimization and the off-site SEO. However, before an SEO company can begin, there are usually a few performance checks done, to make sure your website is ready for SEO. These can include ~
- Is there enough page copy (words) on the most important pages?
- Does the website rely to heavily on graphics or photos?
- Is the source code messy?
- Are the URL’s short and keyword rich, are they data-base driven or are they incredibly long?
- Is your website design, Mobile Responsive for searches made on a mobile device?
There are lots of other items we also investigate to assess if your website is ready for SEO, prior to ‘shaking hands’. In most cases, the website owner can fix any problems themselves, once we have performed a FREE SEO Audit and make them aware of any shortcomings.
The in-site SEO or website optimization is essentially a process where the web page or blog post is edited so it contains keywords that are mostly likely to assist the page to appear in the search result you are targeting.
Both visible and invisible elements of the page are edited to introduce keywords or phrases. These include the page name, page copy, text links, title and Meta tags and other elements of the page so it contains information about a relevant search.
The major search engines frown upon obvious keyword stuffing, however If you use them in moderation in a natural way, the page will usually perform better.
The off-site SEO is devoted to building your websites popularity so it matches your competitors who appear in the top 5 for searches relating to your page content.
Most clients are normally focused on increasing the amount of visitors, which equates to more inquiries from their website or blog. If the client is marketing a product or service, SEO delivers increased sales as soon as they appear in the top 5 or higher for a related search.
