How do I choose a list of  key words and phrases for my site?

This is a question many clients ask and is a reasonable question. Often a web site owner will not think outside the box for search words that may find new customers or clients. Below I will list several ways to process a full list of viable key words for your business.

First write down the list of key words and phrases you would use to find your business. Have several other people to do the same. Ask as many different types of people as possible to do this for you. Choose the people you ask by age, sex, demographics, and any other variable that may suit your business.

Enter searches into a search engine like Google, Bing, or Yahoo and see if competing businesses come up.

Use your search words and phrases to do a search and research the companies that come up by reading through the content on their pages, paying close attention to key words and phrases that would relate to your business. You will be surprised at the words you may have never considered.

Use a key word generator tool to help in this process Google has a great tool for AdWords campaign that works very well. You can find the tool HERE.

Social Networking Is Only Part Of SEO

On January 11, 2010, in SEO, Website Marketing, by DeZiner

Do Not Forget Basic SEO Practices!

There is more than social media to SEO

In this ever changing world of search engine optimization and all the hype of social media and networking the basic principals of SEO should not be ignored. Keeping up with what the search engine algorithms are doing is important but following basic white hat SEO practices is key.

What are some good practices to follow? Well, first and foremost as I have discussed before, is well written, relevant, unique content and lots of it. If it has already been written make what you have to say more interesting and put your own twist on the subject. Be as accurate as possible with the information you give and be authoritative and definitive in your statements.

Site structure has become an important factor in SEO. Using table-less structure and css to separate layout and content makes it much easier for search spiders to index your pages. The faster the pages can be searched by the bots the better they like it.

Tags in the back end are also an important piece. Some SEO professionals will argue whether or not meta tags are needed. The fact of the matter is they can’t hurt and there are many small meta indexers still used today. Don’t forget, the big three, Google, Yahoo, and Bing are not the only players.

Site maps both internal and xml should be implemented especially for larger sites but are good practice for all sites. The site map not only gives an organized list for you readers to find what they are looking for but also gives the indexing spiders a clear concise path to your content.

These are a few basic principals to follow for good white hat SEO. Social networking has become a very important aspect of SEO for a combination of link backs and more places for your content to be found. Be sure to use a well balanced SEO and marketing campaign to get maximum resulsts for your website
