  1. 1. SEO and Meta Tags – Demystified For the Small Business Owner Who Just Wants More Customers? 1 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
  2. 2. SEO and Meta tags? and then of course there are back links, no follow links, do follow links etc etc etc.Ok I will stop there. For local business owners in essence they do not really care what all the terms meanthey just need new clients and customers coming to their site on a regular basis in fact let’s be honest avery frequent basis. Like any skill or technique there is always lots of associated jargon attached to it.Unfortunately many SEO consultants do have a tendency to bamboozle clients with lots of geek speakthat does not really help them. As a business owner though it is important to have some knowledge sothat when you are dealing with suppliers like your web designer or online marketing experts that you canask for what you want and need and be understood.This is more and more important as the real growth for many small local companies is being delivered byincreased local search. Paid search in the form of per per click marketing is still popular though currentevidence suggests that approaching 80 percent of searches go to the left had side of the page not theright.In other words the organic non paid rather than paid adverts. Let’s start with SEO. The term stands forsearch engine optimisation or search engine optimization depending where you are in the world. Let’sfirst have a look at what wikipedia says; “Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improvingthe volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via “natural” (“organic” or“algorithmic”) search results Typically, the earlier a site appears in the search results list, the morevisitors it will receive from the search engine.SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search. This gives a web site web presence.”Now this is a little bit misleading. SEO does help a website get ranked only it does not ensure that awebsite will actually get traffic or the all important click into the site.What it can do though is help a site appear higher up the search rankings. Encouraging someone to clickis another matter. This is where some idea about what your customers are looking for and making yourcontent appealing comes in.Something that many SEO marketing companies are not always as good at. Having some degree of salesand marketing as a previous background does help! OK hopefully you are still with me. Now SEO we haveagreed helps a website appear in the search engine ranking in a higher position according to what thesite owner wants to be ranked for. So say you are selling dog training services in London. You would wantto make sure that your web site was optimized for the word dog training?That way when Mr Smith in Golders Green taps in dog training services into a search engine like Googleor Yahoo or MSN the search engine will see your site as relevant and deliver it to said Mr Smith viola! 2 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
  3. 3. Let’s back track a little as this article is about Search engine optimization and Meta Tags. This is oneway that Google and other search engines find your site as being relevant.The Meta tags within the body of your website helps search engines to find your site and declare it asrelevant. The relevance of SEO and meta tags seems to change depending on the day of the week.Though in honesty it takes very little time to get your site really well optimized so why not spend sometime making sure that the words you want to be found for are included inyour Meta tags.If you are promoting Dog training services in London then make sure that this is a Meta tag that you use.The more specific the better. Of course you will want more than one SEO and Meta tags. So brain stormwhat you think your customers might search for you with. In fact why not ask them. Then when you havea good selection let your web designer add them into your site for you. That way you will start to attracttargeted potential customers rather than not.Best WishesDenise and Sharon 3 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
