Do-It-Yourself Optimization: SEO Tips

6 Quick SEO Tips

Optimizing your website for search engine performance can be extremely important. Many potential visitors will find their way to you through the search engines if you rank well on the results page. That's why search engine optimization (SEO) is a lucrative field for outside consultants. You can take plenty of steps on your own to improve your ranking without the expense of hiring a specialist, by including these simple SEO Tips.

SEO Tips 1. Sub-directories vs. Sub-domains.

This is a strategic question you need to settle early on. Search engines rank sub-domains (yoursalesblog.yoursite.com) as though they are individual websites. Sub-directories (www.yoursite.com/yoursalesblog) are ranked as part of the larger site. If you have very diverse subjects that you want to handle separately, sub-domains are the way to go. If your entire online presence is very focused, sub-directories will be more effective.

SEO Tips 2. Alt tags for images.

In the html code for any web page, you can include an alt tag that will be displayed to viewers who load the page with images disabled. This practice has grown less common as Internet connections get faster and faster, but alt tags are still important. The text of alt tags is read by search engine indexing robots, so you can gain a significant advantage by using tags that include your most important keywords.

SEO Tips 3. Use sensible internal links.

You might be building your website with some pretty powerful software. Many web design programs save you a lot of time, but they don't always produce good results from an SEO standpoint. Inspect your site's internal links and URLS. Any of them that look like gobbledygook (www.yoursite.com/a0bf659z.html) should be replaced with clear links that include keywords. (www.yoursite.com/your-product-features.html) Like alt tags, these kinds of links also contribute to page ranking.

SEO Tips 4. Hyphenate!

Note that in that last example URL, the individual words were separated by hyphens. This is no accident! You want to use hyphens in URLs and tags throughout your site. This is because search engines read hyphens as breaks between words. Underscores, the most common alternative separator, do not work that way. (e.g. "your-product-features" will read as three words; "your_product_features" will read as one word, yourproductfeatures, which is unlikely to be a common search term.)

SEO Tips 5.  Blogs: Sticky posts./h3>

If your site includes a blog, take advantage of the powerful benefits of sticky posts. These are blog posts that are "pinned" to the top of the blog. They will appear on every blog page your visitors navigate to. This is a great way to prominently feature important content without duplicating it over and over. Duplicate content can be very bad for your search engine ranking.

SEO Tips 6. Blogs: Tag clouds?

SEO Tips: Tag Clouds

Tag clouds – automatically-generated indexes to tags that occur frequently on your blog – are very popular. They are not always a good idea from a search engine optimization standpoint, though. You need to consider all of the navigation options you offer to your blog visitors. If a tag cloud is just one of many ways readers can navigate, it could be producing a lot of duplicate links.

If you're interested in improving your site's search engine ranking, give the above SEO Tips a try. They may well make a significant difference for you! There are lots of other SEO tweaks you can handle on your own, too. Keep learning about the process, use these 6 SEO Tips and you can turn yourself into your own optimization specialist!

Social Media is an amazing thing … I mean you just never know who you may connect to in places like planet Facebook

One of the contacts I have made is a pair of Professional Website Builders Temogen Amato and Mark G Roberts

You can find out more about their Website Building and SEO Services at:

Temogen kindly sent me his 50 SEO Tips to Increase your Page Visits which I have reproduced with his permmission below for you

Go through them and make sure you are using some if not all of them on your Blog or site pages – Let me know what you think, have we missed anything, if so let everyone know by leaving a comment

1. On Site SEO: Glossary pages are good content for SEO

2. On Site SEO: Use footer links sparingly and only link to your most important pages. Don’t waste pagerank on content that is worthless.

3. Search: You need to get your site in to the blended search results using images and video. A picture is worth 1000 words and people are clicking on it.

4. Keyword Research: Use Google Insights to make sure the keywords you are focusing on do not have declining interest.

5. Analytics: Measure your brand traffic and keyword traffic separately.

6. Analytics: Are you ranking #1 (or trying to rank #1) for a keyword that will not provide any real benefit to your business? Check that. Use Keywords that bring in business not curiously seekers.

7. Keyword Research: Perform ongoing keyword research. The way people search changes.

8. Competitive Analysis: Read competitors press releases. Are they using words that may change the way people search? Think “Kleenex, Xerox, Dell”

9. Keyword Research: Use Google Trends to check traffic trends in different markets. There may be emerging opportunities in other geographic areas.

10. Keyword Research: How long will it take to get a keyword converting? Will it be worth it when it does?

11. Launching a new product that doesn’t exist in the market yet? Associate it with one that does to make people more comfortable with it.

12. Landing pages: put the call to action above the fold.

13. Landing pages: keep forms above the fold and make them as short as possible

14. Conversions: 3% to 5% is decent

15. Bounce rate: 30% is good, 50% is ok, 70% needs work

16. Search: 80% of queries are informational. Give them the information they want and then lead them where you want them

17. Forms: make sure there are no questions they can’t answer or they will leave

18. Does your “Thank You” page cross sell or further engage? It should.

19. User experience: Screen size and resolution matters. Test, test, test

20. Local search: Just because you are closest doesn’t mean you get the business. You need to build your brand too. Build trust.

21. Local search: Pull out your phone and do a search for your business. What happened?

22. Local search: neighborhoods matter

23. Local search: Pull out your cell phone and search for your business. What happened? (Duplicate)

24. Local Search: neighborhoods matter. Are you optimizing for a “bad neighborhood”?
25. Local Search: point your browser to getlisted.org and follow the instructions

26. Local search: Add photos and video to your local search listing

27. Local search: include city & state in the title tags

28. Even negative reviews help your rank. It’s all about the numbers

29. Offer an Incentive for reviews

30. Sign up to watch a video worked much better than sign up to download a white paper

31. 80% of your visitors will fill out an “optional information” form after completing your call to action

32. Most visitors will not watch more than the 2nd image of a rotating image.

33. Marketing and making money must be the #1 goal of your website

34. 7 choices tops for your main navigation. Too much = no choice

35. Don’t use a final forward slash on your URL’s

36. Buttons should never say “Submit”. Try “Download Now”, “Start Free Trial”, “Request More Information”

37. When building links make sure they have a random life

38. Link magnets are more productive than link begging

39. Local Search: Local business’s need local links

40. Text links in a page carry more weight than alt text

41. Link Building: No follow one link on a page and all become no follow

42. Link Building: The sequence of links on a page matters. Put the important ones on top.

43. Check your analytics for pages that are getting links and no traffic and redirect them.

44. Always be testing and measuring results. Before you change something get a benchmark.

45. The order of links in the code is more important than the order of links in the user experience

46. Surface conversations about your product, service or brand that are happening

47. Google’s technology is emerging to be able to read text in images. (Think picture of a newspaper page)

48. Google’s technology is also emerging to be able to understand words spoken in Video and index the transcripts.

49. If you are going to do video write the script with keywords in mind

50. If you use a map on your site embed a real map versus using an image.
