Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Let us consider the problem - As an example, say a builder and who would like to be first on a search and so would every other builder! Obviously not everyone can be first!

Searching for "builder" on Google I found 127,000,000 only the first 10 are shown. So how would you refine your search?

Searching for "builder rainham essex" reduces the results to 10,500 still far too many.

Searching for "builder rainham essex chimney rm13" reduces the results to 272 but is still 27 pages! How many pages would you look though?

  • Search engines need to know that you exist.

  • Your keywords need to match the searchers keywords.

  • The more hits you get the better your ranking. But how do you get the hits in the first place, that's a bit like what came first the chicken or the egg.

  • Your site ranking is importance so you need to be as high as possible.

  • You can pay to be higher ranking as a sponsored site.

  • Pay per click improves your likely hood of being found, but can be very expensive.

  • Some companies charge for making lots of artificial hits on your site to increase your ranking. Be careful, if the search engine realises this, your site can be down rated or even blacklisted.
     

An insight into SEO

What is a search engine?

Web visitors generally use search engines to find sites that match their search criteria. The visitor enters words or phrases in the search box and the search engine produces a list of related sites. The search engine uses information that it has collected using indexing software agents, often called "robots" or "spiders".
These robots and spiders are programmed to "crawl" the Internet in search of new or updated web sites. The search engine becomes aware of a new site to visit and index when that site is submitted.

SEO can be time-consuming and an ongoing battle. On our Extreme Traffic; we will provide you with detailed instructions of how to fully optimize your website. See our Special SEO Service Prices for 1StopHosting Clients bottom of page. 1StopWebs clients' please enquire for pricing 

Why is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) important?

With literally billions of searches conducted every month search engines have essentially become our gateway to the internet.

Search Engines - google, yahoo, bing, ask to your website

Unfortunately getting yourself simply listed is not enough as clicks on a search engine results page are not evenly distributed amongst the results. Research has shown the higher a website is ranked by a search engine the more clicks they will receive* with the top result receiving by far the largest proportion of all clicks, followed by the 2nd and so on.

How does SEO work?

Search Engine Optimisation is based around your use of “keywords” and your website’s link popularity. “Keywords” is an industry term to describe the queries we use when we conduct a search, for example “blue ipod nano”. The search engines then categorise websites based around their relevance to a particular keyword. The search engines analyse your keyword usage in the following elements of your website (not an exhaustive list):

  • Domain name.
  • Page title.
  • Page URL.
  • H tags (<h1>, <h2>, <h3> etc.) pertaining to the Page Title and Page Content.
  • Page content.
  • Image alt text for blind persons and Search Engines.
  • Internal links within your website.
  • External links to your website - Mutual links ie if you link to my site I will link to yours don't count.

Below is some guidance on SEO

  • Your keywords need to match the searchers keywords.
  • The more hits you get the better your ranking. But that's a bit like the chicken or the egg debate.
  • Your site ranking is importance so you need to be as high as possible.
  • You can pay to be higher ranking as a sponsored site.
  • Pay per click improves your likely hood of being found. These are marked "Sponsored links" on which some people tend to ignore.
  • Some companies charge for making lots of artificial hits on your site to increase your ranking. Be careful if the search engine realises this, your site can be downgraded.
  • basically the search engine is valuating your site on how well it is organised so that it can refer its searchers to it.
  • Updating your site regularly. This will mean the search engine will have to constantly view your site to review its content.

Why should I submit my web site?
Submitting your URL to a number of search engines increases the odds of potential customers finding your site through traditional online searches. You can further increase your chances of being found through a search by adding relevant keywords to your home page title and text.
Search engines are one of the least expensive and most successful forms of online marketing. If you're serious about reaching new visitors, submitting your site to search engines is essential.

Why should I submit every month?
You want to keep your web site registration current. Link Pages move older links to the bottom of the list, and resubmitting puts you back on top. Search engines have a tendency to drop or lose sites from time to time. Resubmitting monthly ensures your site won't get lost. Some web sites offer "What's New" sections. Each time you submit, your site gets added to these lists.

Which search engines and directories do you submit to?
Our service submits to the major search engines and several hundred link pages. For a complete list of the sites to which we will submit your site, click here. Each month we'll send you a detailed report via e-mail listing all the search engines, directories and links pages that your site was submitted to, so you can keep track of the submission process.

When will I see my site listed on search engine sites?
After successfully submitting your web site to a search engine or directory, it's up to those organisations to list your site. Most search engines will send a "spider" to your site within a few weeks of submission. The spider will read and index your web site and schedule your site to be listed. It usually takes 6-8 weeks before your site appears on major search engines.

Why can't I find my site on any search engine after 8 weeks?
The most likely reason that you cannot find your site is that it has a low ranking in the search return. This may be because your site is not optimized for the keywords you entered. It is also possible that the search engine's "spider" has not yet visited your site and this is also adversely affecting the ranking and making it difficult to locate the site in the search return. If you continued to search through the search return, you would eventually find your site.

The easiest way to determine if your site is in the search engine's database is to enter the full URL provided with your submission order. For example, enter www.your-domain-name.com in the search box of the top search engine Google (www.google.com). If you are unhappy with your ranking, we suggest that you optimize your site to help improve your ranking.

What is a meta tag?
A meta tag tells the search engine what your site is about. The major search engines will review your site and read your meta tags to determine categories for your site. Meta tags tell the search engine your site's title, description and keywords. Without these tags, it's difficult for your site to achieve a high ranking on many major search engines.

Do I need meta tags?
Yes. If your site doesn't have meta tags, you're missing potential traffic. A web site without meta tags makes it difficult for a search engine to index your site correctly.

What meta tags should I add to my web site?

  1. Title: The title is probably the most important part of your site to evaluate, as it is the most frequently searched component by search engines. It should state exactly what your site is about and include your most important keywords. An example of a good title would be, "Dave's Interior Designs - Decorating the Inside of England's Homes."
  2. Description: Your web site description should be a 20 word summary of the content of your site. This description should contain some of the keywords and should avoid marketing jargon. An example of a good description would be, "A full service provider of interior design services - decorating, painting, furniture and colour schemes for your home." This what is shown on when your site is found on a search. If too long the your description will be shortened and end with "..."
  3. Keywords: The Meta Tag Keywords should be those words or phrases that you think people will use when trying to look for a site like yours on search engines. You should incorporate many Meta Tags within your site's first paragraphs (50 words) and repeat them throughout the text. The right keywords for your web site should be specific enough to describe your web site's focus, yet general enough for potential customers to use as search criteria with search engines. Be sure to include your domain name, company name and product's name in the keywords.
  4. What are the best keywords to use?
    The best way to determine your keywords is to step out of your shoes and imagine yourself as one of your customers or prospects. How do you think these people will search for sites like yours? What keywords do you think they will enter into the search engines?
    Create a list of all of the words that apply to your business, including your business name, product names (both brand and generic names) and the names of the geographic regions you serve. You may also want to consider variations of these words (such as "dog, dogs, doggie, etc) and common misspellings of important keywords.
    When developing your list of keywords, you should consider all of the possible keywords your customers and prospects may use. Spend a few days thinking it over. Ask a few of your customers what keywords they would use. Build as large of a list as possible, while still keeping the keywords relevant to your business. Once you have a complete list, you can then rank the importance of the keywords to determine which are the most important to your company.
  5. Why do you limit me to 25 keywords?
    Some search engines will only allow us to submit 25 keywords on your behalf. Others compute the relevancy of your keywords by dividing the number of keyword matched in a search by the total # of keywords submitted. We therefore limit your keyword list to 25 keywords to ensure that you select keywords that are the most relevant to your site and that will generate the highest ranking in the search returns. Again quality better than quantity.
  6. Description: Your web site description should be a 20 word summary of the content of your site. This description should contain some of the keywords and should avoid marketing jargon. An example of a good description would be, "A full service provider of interior design services: decorating, painting, furniture and colour schemes for your home."

Where do I place the meta tags?
The meta tags should be inserted between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags of your document.
Below is an example of how to format meta tags and where to place them:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Your Site Title goes here</TITLE>
<META name="keywords" content="Your keywords go here, separated by a comma">
<META name="description" content="Your site description goes here">
</HEAD>

<BODY>

.. Page content is placed here ..

</BODY>
</HTML>

How do I get the meta tags you create for me into my web page?
When filling out the registration form, you should use the same title, description and keywords as those specified in the meta tags included in your site's code. To ensure this process, you can use our meta tag generator. At the end of the registration process, you will receive an e-mail with auto-generated meta tag code for your site. Simply copy and paste this code into your HTML editor and then upload the page to your server. This can be done for you, please enquire.

Other companies submit to 2,000 search engines. Why do you only submit to 400?
We've seen these offers, too. How many search engines do you go to when you're looking for something on the Internet?
Submission companies that offer 2,000 submissions are simply sending your web site to small niche directories. These pages may no longer exist and in many cases were set up to collect e-mail addresses to use or sell. Be careful if you're using one of these submission services.
