Search engine optimization (SEO)
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of increasing a websites ranking in the search engines, search results. The higher your website is in the rankings the more visitors your website will get. SEO is one of the most if not the most important part of internet marketing. Without SEO your website will probably not show up on the front page of Google and thus will get no traffic.
Search engine optimization can be broken down into 2 categories, On-page SEO and off-page SEO.
When a “search engine spider” visits your website, having clean html code, with correct meta tags, descriptions and heading tags is very important. This shows the search engine that your site is quality and that it deserves to be ranked high in the search results.
Title and Meta description:
Title tags and meta descriptions are some of the most important parts of SEO, they tell the search engine what your website is about as well as tell the search engine user what your website is offering. Making an eye catching title can make a huge difference in the amount of people will click on your site.
Heading tags (H1, H2 etc…)
A heading tag helps the search engine understand what your webpage is about. The H1 tag would be the main heading of the article on the page, the H2 tag would be a sub heading within the article.
Adding alt tags to your images on your site tells the search engine what the image is about and also then helps the search engine understand what your website is offering. Example if your website is about “dog collars” and you have an image on the site of a dog wearing a collar then you would give that image the alt tag “dog collars” so when the search engine visits it knows what the picture is about.
10 years back you could just stuff your content full of keywords and then rank on the search engines for those specified keywords. This is not how it works now, Search engines such as Google are a lot smarter. You want your keyword mentioned enough times to help the search engine understand what your site is about. Rule of thumb is between 3% and 8% for keyword density, anything higher might make your website look “spammy”.
Once your websites on-page SEO is up to scratch its time to work on the off-page SEO. Off-page SEO consists mainly of link building. There are many different types of link building available.
Submitting articles with links back to your site to quality article directories is a great way of getting quality backlinks.
