I know what you are thinking: “Click Bate.” And, although this is a super catchy article; the truth be told if there is one thing you end this article with after reading is a good joke to say at your next networking meeting. So bear with me.
How often do you pull out your phone, do a quick google search for something, and click the first or second result? Do you often scroll and click on page two? Honestly think about it. As I write this article – I am also thinking about it and I cannot remember the last time I went to a second page result on Google.
Nobody Looks On Page Two Of Google
Now that the bad joke is out of the way, let’s focus. When you type in your primary keyword or keyphrase, is it on the first page of google? When is the last time you received your website for SEO? Have you considered the The Real Costs of SEO recently?
We want to help you. When it comes to SEO there are three things that really help.
- On-Site SEO
- Off-Site SEO
This is the one that every web developer should be doing when they build your website. It should be included. You should not be paying extra for this!
Everything happening On Your Site is considered On-Site SEO. You need to be optimizing your images. Adding alt and title tags along with proper descriptions. Your content needs to include cross-links (but not too many) to internal page content. Your URLs need to be indexable. And the list goes on.
We typically recommend refreshing this every 6-8 months.
Again, exactly how it sounds. Anything happening Off Your Site and leading people back to your site is Off-Site SEO. This includes writing blog content and getting it published on third-party websites. Adding your business listing to as many directory listings as possible. Managing your email and social media campaigns.
You would typically be expected to pay a company monthly for these services.
This isn’t really an “SEO Category” but it helps, so we added it. Time has to do with how many people go to and how long they stay on your website. How long has your domain been registered. How fast (or slow) are your page load times? All these things factor into your Search Engine Rankings.
