Search engine optimisation
Search engine optimisation is one of the primary ways that a website can maximise visitor traffic from the web at a potentially low cost. In fact, we believe that every business website should include search engine optimisation within its design and structure, integrated throughout its content and focused in the title tag and metatags used on each page.
Your site may be competing in a broad market with high volume search term usage that makes it very difficult to achieve top ranking positions for the best terms, but good volumes can still be achieved from optimisation.
Alternatively you could be operating in a focused niche sector or regional market where a high ranking position can be achieved more easily and you will attract low volume but highly relevant visits.
Again, search engine optimisation will be one of your best investments when marketing your site.
Either way, your website can attract visits from prospective customers through the use of effective search engine optimisation. The search market may be more concentrated now through a few core search tools, but established as well as new sites must adopt a search engine strategy as a core online marketing principle.
Things to consider with search engine optimisation
When embarking on a search engine optimisation programme to support the ranking on your website, you will need to consider a number of issues, including:
- Which search terms will give you the best results immediately and in the long-term?
- How well can your site be indexed by the main search engines and is it also listed on the most popular search directories?
- Will the optimisation of your page content and metatags be working together as effectively as possible?
- Does your site have a link building strategy to support your link popularity?
- What advantages can be gained from developing a search engine optimisation strategy alongside pay-per-click advertising?
