SEO or Search Engine Optimization refers to optimizing ones website to rank highly on search engines, for users to easily find a certain business. Local SEO is for optimizing local business for local searches. For example if you focus on South Beach Miami means that whenever a user search for particular business in South Beach Miami, your business’ website will be on the top page of search engines pages.

 

Content marketing and Search engine optimization

Content marketing on the other hand, is one of the most essential part of Search Engine Optimization or SEO, it is essential to create valuable content that will lead back to your website and business niche, content that is designed and attract users ultimately generate leads and sales.

Blogging is important

Keeping a blog is very important for business to be found and for users to engage. Most businesses have a strong online presence on a regular or even daily basis. Search engines identify unique and valuable contents and blog is the weapon to get seen online and even be a trend on social media. Keeping a blog and regularly update the contents will optimize your website for search engines.

Create a quality video and image

Content is not just words, instead content should be about everything that is written and posted or even displayed about a business or website. Image and videos are also an important part of content but most businesses tend to forget about this or at least prioritize it. However with the new technology, video and image tends to attract more readers and a larger audience along with a great title tag, Meta tags and description. Remember great keywords and local focus, both can improve search engine rankings.

Local business needs to cultivate online reviews

If you want to focus on attracting local clients, you need to focus on cultivating online (local) reviews. You can either hire SEO companies to handle your submission on local listings sites such as Yelp, Google Local, Yahoo Local and many more. You can add your business to these sites and ask your current clients to add a review on your business listing. The reviews you garner, the higher your business will rank when users search for your products and services in your area.

Social media is a must

When a business have a blog with great and valuable contents, the greatest way to promote your content is through social media sites, if your business is not on social media or active on social media sites, you are already losing 70 % of your potential customers to your competitors. Social media is a great tool to connect and engage with your potential clients or social media can be the key to building a brand and enhancing your local SEO effort.

According to Forbes magazine published in January 2015 written by Jason Demens, the biggest problem with local SEO efforts is inconsistency. This article is not referring to inconsistency of posting schedule or branding, rather the inconsistency of your business down on terms of local SEO is inconsistency of your NAP, Name, Address, Phone. Search engines such as Google are very detailed and accurate with it comes to the business’ NAP to categorize business, in which helps the Search Engines find its similar products, services or business name is searched. When there is inconsistency in Business NAP, the ranking can dramatically decrease.

How to avoid SEO mistakes on your Website

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinby feather

With the Google updates coming out, it is no wonder why there are many marketers and small business owners get their SEO wrong. It seems that it becomes more of a game of luck instead of a clear goal to be on the top of Search engines. Here are some ways to avoid common SEO mistakes, which we have noticed everyday on evaluating different websites.

2 different types of websites

website_field_options

There are 2 different types of websites, the one with WWW and the other without? Now you ask what the difference is. The problem with many hosting site, is when a website is developed and uploaded they do not take account the fact that some people prefer a www into their prefix to their site or not. A great portion of website actually works by typing the www or not. This can mean a lot for your SEO, some web developers do not take this as a mistake, but it actually is. If you website has been uploaded without the WWW, it means that you will have duplicate website like this: www.example.com and example.com. it is then very important that your website will be uploaded as www.example.com and not example.com

What you need to do:

Add a quick redirect script to your http.access file to redirect the www and non-www, this will mean that all your visitors, backlinks and search engines to the correct version of your website. Do not forget to update your Google webmaster tool account to set your preferred version of your website.

Reciprocal links are bad and should not be used

SEO-MISTAKES

This is a fairly old tactic, which means nothing to the new Google algorithm. Reciprocal links engaging in links exchange, which is not highly favored by Google. This will not help your SEO rankings, and this is one of the most common and biggest mistakes of most marketers today.

If you should link out to another website in reciprocal nature, you should always make sure that you make it a nofollow link , This will tell the Search engines not to follow the link and you have no responsibilities of people wanting to follow exchanged link.

Old fashioned Black hat SEO

Old fashion black hat is also not favored by Google anymore or any other major Search engine sites. Black hat SEO is, using 3rd party software like automatic link software to generate links, social likes, blog comments and other SEO bits into your website. The type of SEO found in Black Hat is very poor quality SEO trying to trick Google into thinking that the links or back links are natural. The problem here is that Google is smart enough to know that and will rank your website down or even worse penalize it, ban it and de-index it. These penalizations are time consuming and often very costly to resolve.

Conclusion

With technology advancing so quickly and internet is upgrading to load heavy websites, but do not forget your own website which is probably in your browsing history and cache so it loads quicker for you but how about your visitors browsing experience? While it may unnoticeable delay for some people, your website might be suffering in rankings due to being split second slower than your competitors. So check your website from Google PageSpeed if it scores on average, and see what improvements you can make for your website.
