Optimization Factors
Perfecting optimization begins with the most important ingredient: Content. When writing copy for a website, it's important to have relevant, current content. The ultimate goal of a website is to be listed as one of the top 10 organic results on each of the major search engines. This placement essentially guarantees that your website will not only be found, but clicked on, giving you a better chance that the lead you worked so hard for will be turned into a sale, and therefore a return on your website investment.
Each website needs to be optimized according to the target website viewer. For example, say your website is a Honda Dealership in Maryland; it is crucial that when you type in "Maryland Honda" YOUR automotive dealership comes up in that search on the major search engines. This is very important if you want to get Internet leads.
Along the same lines, writing good, clear, and relevant page titles is also an important factor in search engine optimization. A good page title will increase your search engine placement results dramatically. For title page tags, being simple and relevant is key. For example, if your are a "Maryland CPA Firm" than Maryland CPA Firm should be in your title. If your selling t-shirts, then t-shirt should be in the page title. It's hard to believe that something so simple is so commonly overlooked, but surprisingly this technique is seldom utilized. In most cases, people are too descriptive and creative when writing page titles, not understanding that using too many keywords, punctuation and cutesy language can have an adverse effect on search engines browsers.
Page title is only one of many factors that enter into matching up your website values with specific search engine algorithms. For example, if your values for a page title match your page title in a formula then you would have a higher ranking than someone who does not have a direct match. It's hard to believe some website designers, still name page titles; Welcome, Services and the infamous Home Page. Would you ever type in the aforementioned (Welcome, Services or Home Page to find your product or service on a major search engine like Google or Yahoo?) I should hope not!
It is important to note that there are many companies on the Internet as well as many web designers that claim to be search engine optimizers or marketers, even going as far as guaranteeing a top ten listing. Our advice to you: be wary of these folks. The only way to guarantee a top ten listing is if you happen to own that particular search engine or portal.
Optimization is an ongoing process, one that requires a consistent and regulated maintenance schedule. It is important to work within search engine guidelines in order to effectively optimize and promote the content of your website. Search engines seek out current, relevant content regularly using spiders and bots looking for specific keywords and phrases. It's important to have an experienced search engine optimizer continuously updating your website's content so that the search engines give your site a good ranking. Each search engine is unique in terms of the characteristics that factor into your specific ranking in their results.
Sure, there are tons of other ways to market your website, but organic search engine results are by far the best way to go in terms of yielding results. That's why it's crucial that search engine optimization should be an important part of your marketing plan. In other words, why spend time and money building a website if you're not going to market it properly in order to achieve the best return on your investment. A solid marketing plan would allow for a minimum of $250 - $500 per month for optimization, not including content creation.
