Increase Website Traffic with SEO: Search Engine Optimisation - the basics
I’m sure you’ve heard of something called SEO (AKA: Search Engine Optimization). The term SEO is thrown around a lot, however, it’s quite an intimidating concept, hopefully, this article can help you understand it a bit better, otherwise, you can contact your Business Mentor to understand it more deeply to help get you started.
The majority of website traffic comes from search engines (80% is from Google alone). When you optimise your site with SEO keywords, (I’ll explain this concept shortly,) search engines are more likely to place your site higher on the results page when people search for certain topics.
The aim of the SEO game is to land yourself on page 1 of a Google search. Most people don’t click past the first page. Your aim is for your website to be one of the higher returning search results so you have a greater chance of someone visiting your site. This tip alone increases your profit by 80%. To put it simply, your SEO will make or break your online business.
Let’s get into the basics of SEO, starting with Indexable Content. This means your most important content needs to be in HTML aka text format. Any non-text content, like pictures, videos and flash files, is often ignored by search engines. One way to get around this is to provide alternate text in HTML for any important images you have.
If you want to know if search engines can find your content and images check out SEO-browser.com and don’t build your site entirely in Flash. Make sure you have HTML elements mixed in too, or browsers won’t see your website. If I’ve just lost you, don’t be worried, just call your Business Mentor and we’ll hold your hand through the whole process.
The next important part of SEO is keywords. Keywords are how search engines figure out your page/website is relevant to what a user is searching for. The first step is knowing what terms your customers will be typing into google to find you. For example, Business Mentoring Australia offers Business Mentoring services, but people may not know what a Business Mentor does, so they might put “Business Mentor Definition” into Google. You’ll see Business Mentoring Australia on page 1.
How did we do that? We made sure the words “Business," “mentor” and “definition” were in our indexable content. “Business Mentor Definition” was added to a page title, and at least two or three times in the body of the page. In addition to this, the page was linked to other internal pages.
You can even try a few variants on the keywords you use. This is one of the easiest ways to improve SEO. Download the Business Mentoring Australia eBook: Your Key To Success: Drive Free Organic Traffic To Your Website Today
Improving your brand awareness
If the idea of SEO is making your head spin, mastering social media is a lot easier, and it’s another fantastic way to generate 20% more website traffic. Running your own social media is free and can be quick to do once you get the hang of it. Whichever outlet you use, whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest, the traffic you get to your website will depend on what you’re offering your customers.
Twitter is great for a short catchy message, links, and quick updates. For physical products and retail, Pinterest may be best, especially if your target customers are female, as Pinterest’s sites have the largest female demographic of all the social media.
Should you chose to spread out to various social media platforms, which would be wise, keeping a consistent feel/tone/brand is incredibly important.
Knowing where your customers come from, what they are interested in and the pages they like will greatly improve your chances of getting people to go to your website.
