How to Seamlessly Include Keywords in Your Web Content – Entrepreneur Tue, 18 Feb 2014 17:09:30 GMT

In his book Ultimate Guide If you’re a newbie to internet marketing, you might be wondering, “What the heck is keyword optimization?” It sounds more complex than it is. Basically, keyword optimization is making sure your content contains enough instances of your keywords, which are words or phrases commonly used in search engines to find what you offer. For example, if you’re selling real estate in Florida, your keywords may be “florida real estate,” “jacksonville florida real estate,” “orlando homes for sale,” “palm beach houses for sale,” etc.

You can find keywords by using keyword research tools and analyzers. This is software that tells you each of the combinations used with a particular keyword, along with how many times the original keyword and its combinations have been used. You can either use paid keyword analyzers, or you can use the popular Google keyword research tool, which is offered for free in the Google AdWords toolset.

How do you use a keyword analyzer tool? They’re all the same: You enter in the desired keyword and are given a list of results. Paid keyword analyzers return more specific results, while free ones return more basic information. If you find that your keyword receives a lot of visitors–from 20,000 to 30,000 visitors a month for exact matching terms as a minimum–these are the keywords you may want to consider as part of your keyword optimization strategy.

Some SEO Basics

A Basic Primer on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) From The Huffington Post

5 Key SEO Metrics Explained – Huffington Post Thu, 13 Feb 2014 22:58:53 GMT

Potential search marketing clients will often call in and start the conversation by saying, “I want my business to rank number one on Google, can you help me?” Ranking number one is the primary focus of every business owner when it comes time to discuss search engine optimization. It is the wrong approach for several reasons, as top rankings alone will not always result in record breaking profits and ROI. There are many other SEO metrics that should be considered along with the rankings that work together to create a profitable SEO campaign.

1. Keyword Rankings

As mentioned above, this is what the majority of business owners concentrate on when they discuss a SEO objective. Everyone wants top rankings, but just getting a website to the top spot for specific keywords doesn’t automatically result in revenue pouring in. Ranking number one for keywords that don’t result in conversions and sales is completely useless. It sounds good on paper, but ranking on top for a keyword that isn’t generating revenue provides zero benefit for the business.

This is why a very well thought out search engine optimization strategy is key. Blindly attempting to rank for keywords is a very expensive mistake. It needs to be developed and executed with predetermined conversion and revenue goals that make it profitable and worth the effort.

Google Promoting Certain Pages – See How…

An interesting article partially explaining how to increase the exposure of certain pages of your website. 

Lessons From Google On Optimizing Your SEO – Search Engine Land Mon, 17 Feb 2014 14:22:29 GMT

Dan Cobley, Google UK’s Managing Director, recently revealed that Google’s infamous 2007 “50 Shades of Blue” experiment involving ad links in Gmail increased revenue by $200 million a year. These results switched the balance of power from design-driven to engineering data-driven decisions, and famously led Google’s top designer, Doug Bowman, to ultimately to resign in frustration.

Search professionals have since observed and reported hundreds of UI experiments, and the search engine results page has gone through dozens of iterations since the days of 10 blue links.

Universal Search, embedded local with the 3-pack, 5-pack and 7-pack variations, rich snippets, authorship, the knowledge graph, and of course the carousel have all become part of the SEM lexicon. You can be confident that all of these changes were A/B (or multivariate) tested and vetted against some conversion goal.

So what does this have to do with SEO?

How Does Google Measure A Conversion From Organic?

If every change to the presentation layer is driven by conversion optimization, it is reasonable to assume that organic rankings are also informed by the same approach. The dilemma is that we do not know what criteria Google is using to measure a “conversion” out of organic results.

The first concrete example of Google using user data to influence SERPs appears in 2009, when Matt Cutts revealed that Google site links are partially driven by user behavior. This tidbit surfaced during a site clinic review of at SMX West when he noted that their Store Locator is buried in their primary navigation, but that it is a popular page “because it appears in your site link.”

The Meijer Store Locator is the top choice in the site links, despite the fact that it is still buried in the global navigation and the page is essentially devoid of content.
