SEO

SEO

SEO or search engine optimization is something that you hear a lot, but few people know much about.  SEO is an ever-changing landscape, but a strong understanding is necessary to have the online results that our clients expect.  I consider myself to be an expert in this area, and in this article, I’ll try to shed some light on what SEO is all about.

The Two Major Components of SEO

SEO SeashorewebThe first component of  SEO is on page optimization.  On page, optimization means that your website has been built in a way that it clearly shows Google, and other search engines, what you are trying to talk about.  The majority of websites today fail this test.

Here’s an example:  Let’s say that you created a page about Construction on your website, and you want your page to show up when people in your city search for Contractor.  In order for this to happen a number of things have to be in place.

Meta Data

Every website contains metadata on each page.  This metadata is like a summary of what your page is about.  Google and other search engines use this metadata to help them quickly decide if your page should be considered to rank when a search is entered online.

Let’s say that you live in the city of  Atlanta, GA. Your contractor page metadata needs to contain the words “Atlanta” and “Contractor”.  Contractor alone will have you competing against the entire world when you really only want to rank in the city of Atlanta.

Metadata consists of Title Tags, Descriptions, and Keywords.  A well-designed website will have clear meta information on each and every page that fits the content of that page.

Page Content

In addition to having the correct meta information you also have to have page content that matches it.  The words you write in your content need to be congruent with the title of the page, as well as the description, and keywords.  If everything flows together you have a great chance of reaching the top of the results.

Page Length

The page length also plays a factor in your ability to rank for certain search terms.  You should ideally have pages that are longer than 400 words, but I would say the longer the better.  Write high-quality content that contains lots of content that should include pictures as well as videos and other interesting features.

The Second Major Component of SEO

The second major component of SEO is off page optimization.  Off-page optimization means that you are getting votes from other websites online.  So how do you get a vote?

At some point, you’ve been on a website and clicked a link that took you off that site to another website.  A link like that is called a backlink, and having high-quality backlinks pointing to your website will have an impact on the rank of your website and your internal pages.

There are many different places that you can get backlinks from.  Having your website listed in certain directories online will help you to get some backlinks, and websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter also allow you to build links to pages in your site.

Some links are more powerful than others, and some are safer than others.  If Google sees that you are building links to your site from low-quality neighborhoods they can filter your website out of the search results.  Today it’s very important to make sure your backlink profile is high quality.

How Do I Master SEO as a Contractor?

It’s very difficult to master SEO as a Contractor.  You simply don’t have the time to invest thousands of hours to learn all about it and to keep up with the monster that it is.  When you work with us at SeashoreWeb Website Design you can rest assured that you are working with the best of the best.  We do all the hard work for you so that you can focus on living the life that you should be as a contractor. We will get you on top of the search engines!

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Domain Name

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Domain Name

Starting a new business?  Have an ingenious idea that you can’t wait to share with the world?  Then you are probably thinking about building a website.
Before getting started, you’ll want to consider registering a domain name.

Seven Tips for Choosing a Domain NameSeashoreweb website design blog

Choosing a domain name is similar to choosing a company name it requires a lot of thought and consideration. Your domain name is your identity on the Web; you want to make sure you choose a name that not only fits your business but is also easy to find and promote. Use short, easy to remember keywords that describe your business. The website’s name should reflect your company’s name, describe the services and/or products provided, or describe what’s sold. Keep the name as simple as possible, so customers can remember it. Typically the best names are usually the keywords of the name of the company. Follow these steps to help you pick the perfect domain.

1 – Name Your Brand
The first thing you should do is consider what URLs are available to you–then choose your brand name accordingly if you can. Be creative–do your research and see who else is using that name or anything similar. Be original, exciting and innovative when naming your brand–the same way you should be with your product.

2 – Tie Your Brand to the Domain Name
Your domain name should match your brand. Always choose one that doesn’t need explanation.

3. Use Keywords

Try using keywords that describe your business and the services you offer. For example; if you’re a glass replacement business, you may want to register GlassRepair.com or GlassReplacement.com. Include the keywords that people enter when searching for your products or services. It helps improve your rank on search engines (which increases traffic) and just makes more sense to your customers.

4. Keep it Short

If your domain name is long and complex, you risk customers mistyping or misspelling it. Short and simple is the way to go.  Be short, catchy and memorable! You should also make your name easy to pronounce and spell.

5. Make it Easy to Type

Finding a domain name that’s easy to type is critical to online success. If you use slang (u instead of you) or words with multiple spellings (express vs. xpress), it may be harder for customers to find your site.  Make sure you’re not infringing on anyone else’s copyrights.

6. Be Memorable

There are millions of registered domain names, so having a domain that’s catchy and memorable is essential. Once you’ve come up with a name, share it with close friends to make sure it sounds appealing and makes sense to others.

7. Stick with .com

The .com TLD (top-level domain) is by far the most widely accepted extension for a domain name. For obvious reasons, it is also the easiest to remember. When you tell someone to go to your site, in most cases they are going to think “name/business name.com” so try to stick with a .com if you can.

Tools to Help you Brainstorm Names

  • NameStation – Generates a list of available domains based on a submitted word.
  • Domaintyper – Checks domain name availability instantly.
  • Domain Pigeon – See what others are looking to register as a source of inspiration.
  • Domainr – Type a word and it will find “domain hacks”.

The creative process of choosing a name for your website is just as important as choosing a design for it. Just as you need a rational, strategic way to run your business, finding a memorable and successful name for your website requires that same rational strategy.

Why You Need A Business Website

website designSmall, medium and large Business owners аrе moving traditional paper advertising tо online advertising. Today just about every type of business needs to have a website.  Іf уоu hаvе аn offline business, nо matter hоw small, уоu саn tаkе advantage оf the mаnу benefits online marketing саn dо fоr уоur business. Search engine optimized  Business website development іs vеrу іmроrtаnt, еsресіаllу іf уоu wаnt additional revenue. The first thing you must do is secure a good, catchy URL. Make sure your Domain Name makes sense for your business, is short, doesn’t have quirky spelling and is available on social platforms, too. Benefits of having your оwn web Internet presence fоr уоur business. By having your own Internet Presence yоu саn reach tо а wider audience. Yоu саn be found online locally as well as nationally and globally. When it comes to benefiting from a website, the Size of your business does not matter.  it is irrelevant if you’re a one-man show or a 10,000-employee corporate giant; if you don’t have a website, you’re losing business to other companies that do.

Your website is an important part of your business. Make sure you treat it as such. Add your web address to your stationery, business cards, and other advertisements and you’ll have visitors knowing exactly where to go for answers to their questions and where to send their friends to for great service

Social Media Integration

There are a lot of social media platforms out there, and you should promote your presence on them on your website because social media is a critical part of marketing your business. Integrating these social media marketing platforms into your website will help boost your SEO, improve your business’ footprint on the social web and build your following across numerous social platforms.  If your business has established pages on sites like Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, your website should have links or buttons to these social networking pages. When these connections are established, people can become aware of your business from social networking sites. They can also follow you and promote your business using the social networking sites they’re already on.   Social media is not going to leave us anytime soon and it is worth the investment in time.
When your website integrates with social networking sites you’re able to reach a larger audience to your business. For example, if someone clicks a Facebook “Like” button on your site this will alert their network of friends about an item on your site. The effectively shares something they found on your website with their friends.

So if you are a small business and have a less than a great website or no website at all, you are missing a great opportunity to be there when potential new customers are looking online for your product or service.  Customers are looking for what you have to offer. Will they find you?
