  • Emphasise the importance of a high listing – pointing out how click throughs degrade as we move down the list <br /> Point out ‘natural’ and ppc listings <br />
  • The number of monthly searches is obviously an important factor – generally a phrase with high search volume is better to capture than one for which there are not many searches. This is not always the case though if there is high business relevance associated with a particular phrase we may still want to sue it <br /> Because we cant necessarily capture all the phrases we want (we may not have appropriate web pages in our site) some prioritisation is necessary. So, for example, it might be considered more important to give ‘ heat treatment services’ a higher priority than ‘carburising services’ when we do the optimisation. We could always come back to the secondary phrase later. More about this when we discuss implementation in the next module. <br /> Sometimes its difficult to understand a searchers intent when he types in a phrase. For example one word phrases - for example, ‘atmosphere’, ‘oxidising’ and so on – are typically not good phrases to include. This is not always the case as clearly words like ‘carburising’, ‘nitriding’ and so on do have relevance even though they are only single words. <br /> Sometimes phrases can have different or multiple meanings – for example if someone searches for ‘cold treatment’ is he searching for our services or a cure for his medical condition.? <br /> In these case we should rule out the phrase or think how we could make it more specific by changing it <br /> Competition is another factor which is sometimes considered <br />
  • <br /> Your copy writing in paid search is very important. <br />
  • Links on other sites will lead visitors to you, hence in its own right it is an important aspect of online marketing leading potential customers directly to your site. Obviously the more links the more different ways leading to your site. <br /> Over and above this it is an important part of search marketing, since the more links you have the more important you are in the eyes of the search engines and the higher up in the rankings you will appear ( we’ll qualify this in more detail as we move through) <br />
  • There are many different ways to develop external links. <br /> The important point is to have a plan which we can use to develop our ongoing approach to link building. As we move through, particularly the practical exercises later, you will begin to put your own plans for successful link development in place. <br />
  • In the example here a keyphrase on the site is ‘technical translation’ so ideally the incoming link should include ‘technical translation’ in the hyperlink text. This is optimal for SEO and where we have control (for example when sending details to a reciprocal linking partner) we should ensure this is the case. Of course we do not always have this control – many directories dictate the form of the link. <br />
  • A good example of a directory for European Businesses – 500,000 businesses in 27 languages. <br />
  • In the practical exercise you will download the Google toolbar which will allow you to determine the Page Rank of every site you visit. You will also check your own. <br /> This indicator (shown above) is just that, an indicator. Increasingly people are reporting that its accuracy is suspect and that Google may be intentionally giving out inaccurate PRs so its more difficult for people to fathom its algorithm. However it remains an important indicator for most sites but care must be taken not to consider it as absolutely accurate. <br />
  • There are many PR directories which you will search for in the practical session. <br /> A great way to submit you news stories and at the same time drop your website link (on high Page Rank sites) <br />

  • Getting the right domain and hosting       UK company Targeting the UK In UK English Weak on inbound links .com domain But - Google thinks it’s NORWEGIAN – Because that’s where it’s hosted……. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2013
  • International traffic Issues  Search engines will use the top level domain (TLD) to assess where you want traffic from (eg - .co.uk, .de, .it etc)  If you have a .com (or .net, .info etc) they will use your hosting location to determine this  Use Google Webmaster central to override this and tell Google where you want traffic from (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2013

  • Developing the Initial List - Brainstorm with your self and others you work with - Look at what competitors use (‘view’; ‘source’ then see the meta data and visible text) - Any brand names or generic product types which are relevant - Study your web stats for keyphrases which have driven people to your site - Take you mates down the pub and ask them what they would type in to find you - Use web based tools eg Google Keyword Tool:- You could even ask your customers and suppliers (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2013

  • What are the main factors to consider when selecting and prioritising keyphrases?  Search Volume – the number of monthly searches – The bigger the better?  Business Relevance – how important is this term to my business  Keyphrase relevance – what is the searcher looking for when using this phrase – Single word phrases are not good as its difficult to know the searchers intent – Phrases can have different meanings ‘eg ‘cold treatment’ – Mix ‘long tail’ and ‘head phrases’  Competition – how much competition is there for this phrase (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2013
  • What do you do if there’s no direct translation?  “City breaks” has no direct equivalent in: – French – German – Dutch – Spanish – Italian (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2013
