  • This description will appear on the main product page. It is the description that will get the customer to contact our office and initiate the license process.
    The first priority is getting the customer to contact us based on our page’s content. In order to accomplish this, you must help folks find the content
    In the Long Description, You may get into a little more detail than a typical 1-pager. However, This is not the place to show how adept you are at using jargon and highly technical language. The description should use plain English. A user should gain a basic understanding of what the product does based mostly on this description and the short description.
    Search engines place more weight on pages that use their keywords throughout their content, so try to use keywords often in this description.
    DO NOT USE ACRONYMS. Or, if you must, at least write them out then put the acronym in parentheses.
    Search engines also put more weight on headings, lists, and italicized items. Therefore, try to use these things as often as you can without making the descriptions cluttered or unattractive. (see the “How a Web Page Works” document for more)
    It is important to remember that search optimization should be the second priority of the content
    Generally, you want to include the Title (described later in this manual) in the first line of the long description.
  • Use Cases – Think about applications and features of your technology.
    e.g. for Software that helps you study human brain anatomy you might add references to both Human Brain and anatomy software since not all Brain Anatomy Software is specific to the human brain
    Minimize – Keep your list of keywords or keyword phrases to 3-6 unique words or phrases.
    Prioritize – put your most important words or phrases at the beginning of your list.
    Specify – Make sure your keywords are specific to your product, normally in the form of synonyms or words specific to each item.
    Commas – Separate words or phrases using a comma in your Content management System (CMS)
    Match – Keywords and phrases must contextually match the content and context of the page content as well as the “Title” and “Headings.”
    Phrase – Keep useful phrases together.
    e.g., do no enter “Human” AND “Brain” separately. Instead, enter “Human Brain”
  • Get It Right - Page Title is the single most important Search Engine Optimization factor.

    Be Honest – If the Page Title isn’t, contextually, about the searched subject, or just isn’t compelling, searchers won’t read any further AND Google will crush you.

    Make it Fit – You have a maximum of 100 characters to create your “Title,” including spaces, though search results will often only display about 65 characters.

    Keywords Count – Use a character counter to utilize as many keywords as possible; most word processing programs (such as MS Word) will count characters.

    Don’t Waste My Time – Design your Page Title to help your searcher quickly scan and skip.

    Get a Clue – Page Title gives readers a clue to what your page is all about but Don’t stuff your title with keywords; Use only the most important keywords that describe the content

    Did I Mention it is Important? – Page Title shows up as the top line in search results lists. Give the searcher (and search engines) an idea about content (though rarely context).
    Google is also looking at these titles to try to decide what your Web page is all about.

    When someone types in a search phrase, Google looks in their index to see if titles (and a bunch of other things) “match” with that person’s search term. If it does, it’ll bring that page to the top of the search engine results page (SERP).

    Google is even kind enough to highlight the words that match in the search. If your title is a close match to what that person is looking for, it’s far more likely that someone will click-through to your site.
  • Extra…Extra! – This could be described as your Page Topic’s Headline.

    Don’t Go Overboard – Unlike the Page Title, The Headline Name needs to be readable.

    What Do You Want to Talk About? – The Main <H1> Heading of your page should contain important keywords, be concise and speak to the main topic of your page

    Size Matters – A larger font size compared to other page text, is more important than the rest of the text. The same applies to other headings (<h1>, <h2>, etc.), which generally are in larger font size than the rest of the text. (but can be different colors too so apply CSS rules to headings)

    Say It With Style – Bold and italic emphasize important words and phrases. However, use them judiciously, or you will achieve the opposite effect.

    Be Consistent – Use CSS to make sure all attributes look the same across your site and have someone proofread your content

    Headings Are Getting a Bump – Google is using headings more-and-more as an SEO Factor, SO…Just like in “Titles,” A word is used in a heading(Especially <H1>), MUST also show up in the main body of the page!

    • 17. Images and Videos – SEO Mechanics A picture (or video) is worth a thousand words… Except on the web when a picture ALONE isn‘t worth $#!+%$@^% • Pretty Doesn’t Cut It – You must name your pictures • No Place to Get Skimpy – Use keywords to name images Copyright 2010 Darren J. Cox - M.IP.P Strategy - All Rights Reserved
    • 18. Images and Videos – SEO Mechanics • Leverage – By using important content-related keywords for “Alt Tag” Text, you are doubling down on your SEO. Google ranks images separately, and as they are associated with a page and site, so you get a huge return on your investment if you get this right. • Optimize, Rinse, Repeat - You may consider repeating the page “Title” in your “Alt Tag” text. Copyright 2010 Darren J. Cox - M.IP.P Strategy - All Rights Reserved
    • 19. Google is Blind Search engines don’t have eyes so they can’t tell if your image is relevant or not, which is why they read the “alt text” of images. If you don’t tell the search engines what the picture is, they simply won’t know and it will be a huge waste of time, space and money Copyright 2010 Darren J. Cox - M.IP.P Strategy - All Rights Reserved
