"Imagine organising a party - You booked and decorated the hall; bought all the food and drinks. On the day of the party you stand idly at the door, waiting for your first guests...a couple of hours later, when no-one has turned up, you realise you forgot to send out the invites!'
"Having a website without Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is like having a party and not sending out the invites - how will your customers find you?"
To help you understand the SEO process, Search Engine Optimization is the process of optimising a website for search engines (obvious, eh?). Search Engine Optimization consists of two parts - we have listed these below:
On-page optimization is what we do to the actual website itself. There are many elements of on-page optimization, including (but not limited to):
Canonicalisation “Canonicalisation happens when you can access a website through both (two or more different URLs) www.my-web-site.co.nz and my-web-site.co.nz. Sometimes search engines will effectively index two identical copies of your site as a result of this. It is unlikely that your website will be subjected to duplicate content penalties. However, the safest way to avoid this is to implement a redirect to your primary website rather than allowing the search engine to choose which one it will show by giving it more than one option."
META Data "Meta data provides descriptions about data. The most important meta data tags for purposes of search engine optimisation are:
Meta Title Tag - The Meta Title Tag is what appears on the top of users' (including yourself) webpages and browsers. It is also shown in the title of your search results. It is important that the title tag is limited to a certain number of characters, is formatted correctly, and has correct keyword placement. The title tag should be unique for every page on your website.
Keyword Placement "Placing keywords in the correct places on the webpage (like in the heading tags, alt tags and within the copy) help search engines understand what the page is about. Visualise a search engine spider crawling through your website, looking in certain places like the title, description and heading tags. This helps Google to establish what your page is about"
Off-page optimisation is everyting we do to improve rankings without actually touching the website. A massive amount of this is what is known as link-building. Link-building is the time-consuming, incremental process of creating links from external websites that point to the website we are optimising. This can be done in many ways. Here are some of them:
Search engine optimization has permeated the World Wide Web ever since search engines reached people's households, and the Internet became a financially viable means to market a business. It allows small businesses to compete with massive corporations on an (almost) even footing.
SEO campaigns must be executed well or they can be detrimental to your business. People offering 'instant results' or 'guaranteed listings' (more often than not) will be doing something that may provide short-term results, but will ultimately lead to problems in the long run. There is no point trying to trick Google - they have brains far better than ours (like Matt Cutts) that identify websites that try to trick them. These 'illegitimate' websites will usually be demoted to the depths of search engine results.
