If your company is falling into one of these common traps, you’ll benefit from this 30 minute webinar.

Recent updates to the Google algorithm have outpaced your Search Engine Optimization. You’re behind the times- you’re getting penalized in the search rankings for the SEO you paid for in 2004

You’re not creating content, at least not content that generates ranking-boosting links and likes . Your team has the bandwidth to create content or syndicate it, but not both.

You don’t know which search terms are really performing for you, and so your conversion rates from search aren’t moving the needle.

Mike Turner, Webmarketing123’s Director of Business Development, will bring his humor and years of search marketing expertise to this high-impact, complimentary webinar.

  • Try to avoid picking non-specific terms like “software” / Instead, expand on the general terms to what your company does, like “mobile banking software,” to bring more relevant traffic to your siteThough search volume is important, you must take into account the quality of traffic coming into your site and the relevance of this keyword to your business.
  • There’s a big difference between each ranking position…
  • Write a press release around a release of a product, a milestone, or a company presence at an event. Syndicate your press release through a paid service like PR wire, business wire, or PR Web. Don’t be surprised that there’s a surcharge to have a live link in the press release. These sites are considered highly credible by Google, and your press release could be re-posted by tens or even hundreds or thousands of other websites.
  • Add keywords as alternative-text to photos. This is a best practice for webmasters, since some people use browser add-ons that block images, But there’s a two nuances here. The alt-text renders as a link- so you’ve created an internal link. Share the image (with the alt-text) with partner sites (corporate parent site, conference presenter site, local business directory site) and now you’ve got an external link. I use this example because this kind of opportunity happens year-round across your company, and you’ll want to increase the SEO-IQ of your team such that you’re not letting these go by.
  • Search for your field plus the words “guest blogger” and you’ll likely find more than a few site hosts eager to hear from you! It’s a lot of work to generate fresh content constantly, and bloggers are often very open to having guest posts. Giving samples or freebies to bloggers is also a standard practice.
  • This allows you to close the loop and actually optimize your SEO Campaign. Refocus efforts on the top performing keywords.
  • Before getting knee-deep in all the features Analytics offers, let’s remind ourselves of our over-arching intention. Our goal with Analytics to be able to draw a straight line from the many search queries that are relevant to my company, to know how many of those searchers we acquired, whether through organic, paid search, social media or other kinds of referral traffic, and then measuring the desired visitor behaviors and outcomes that happen on your website. Don’t get sidetracked with absolute numbers of visitors, clicks, social followers, pageviews or time on site. Once you are able to decide what are most essential elements to measure, create custom dashboards to display that information, and share that dashboard to members of various teams.
