WEBSITE MARKETING


If you are looking to boost the traffic to your website then you will need to spend some time on your online marketing. Online marketing consists of a number of different elements. Search engine optimisation is one of the main ones and is a way of improving the site to get it to rank higher on the search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing.

This algorithm is top secret although the search engines will give us advice about what they are looking for when it comes to ranking. Ideally your site should be designed for the customer and if the customer receives a great all round experience then your website should rank high, but often this isn’t quite enough to get to the top of the search engine results pages.   Read more...



When it comes to online marketing there are a number of avenues you can explore. Search Engine Optimisation also known as SEO is a method that is carried out to a website to improve the rankings on the search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. If you have a business and want to target a specific area then you may need to add content in to your site that is highly optimised to allow you to compete for positions on the search engines. If, for example you wish to target 3 neighbouring towns then you may add in 6 pages (2 for each location). Within these pages you will want to ensure that you have the relevant keywords in the correct density and also ensure that all the meta data / heading tags are highly relevant to the new page. Depending on the level of competition you may require several pages for one location to compete, but be sure to remember that each page needs to have unique content on it. Read more...

A good web marketing company will be able to assess your current site and tell you what is required to get it up to scratch. They will most probably also recommend ongoing marketing work and this is not just to line their pockets, but it so you can retain and improve on your rankings.

When it comes to improving and marketing your website, you need to ensure that you constantly update your site with useful relevant information. Some companies struggle to do this and believe that having a website with a few pages of content on is enough.

Depending in your competition online, this may only require a new article once or twice a month, but for others you may need to be adding content every few days to stay on top.

Many of us have a website designed, have a look through the pages and read the content and then leave it up to the lap of the gods to see if it does well. If you have an active web marketing agency looking after the site for you then they should be talking to you on a weekly or monthly basis of changes and improvements that you should be considering. If you find that your site is not performing as well as you had hoped either from a conversions point of view or from the number of visitors that are leaving the site too quickly, then I would recommend testing your website yourself. Click through the site as if you have never seen it before and see if you come across any issues, it may also be a good idea to ask friends of family that haven’t used your site before to have a go and give you feedback on their experiences as this is potentially a similar experience to what your visitors are getting and their feedback is vital.
