               www.irishwebhq.com
1. Choose your keywords and
keyphrases
Focus on one at a time
Reduce competition by targeting location
Keyword should at all times be considered by
  Developer
  Programmer
  Graphic Designer
  Content Writer/Author/Blogger


How to choose keywords
               www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords
Many web users begin browsing with a Google search
The terms they enter in Google search are called
 keywords
In order to appear in the search results for these
 keywords your site must be optimised for these
 keywords




               www.irishwebhq.com
2. Page Setup
Based on the keywords that suit your business
  Choose a relevant domain name
  Choose relevant html page names
  Choose relevant image names
Domain Trust
  Age of domain considered important
  Future registration period considered important




              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in Domain
Keywords in URLs help a lot
Chosen key-phase in this example: “seo services”
http://domainname.com/seo-services.html
Even better: http://www.seoservices.com
Better again:
 http://www.seoservices.com/seo-services.html

But if you don't have the keywords in other parts of
 the document, don't rely on having them in the URL.

              www.irishwebhq.com
3. HTML
Head Section
  Title Tag
  Description meta tag
  Keywords meta tag
Body Section
  Keywords in important areas
    Headings
    Links

    Bold text

    Image alt tags

   …
               www.irishwebhq.com
HTML
Good code organisation
Valid Code




              www.irishwebhq.com
HTML
We should optimise our HTML for best search engine
 results
Most of these techniques involve using relevant
 keywords within appropriate tags




              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in <title> tag
This is one of the most important places to have a
 keyword because what is written inside the <title> tag
 shows in search results as your page title.
The title tag must be short (6 or 7 words at most) and
 the the keyword must be near the beginning.




              www.irishwebhq.com
www.irishwebhq.com
Where to put meta tags?
<head>

 <title>your descriptive keywords title goes here</title>

 <meta name="description" content="your keyword rich
 marketing sales-pitch meta description goes here">

 <meta name="keywords" content="your keywords,go
 here,separated by a comma,but not a space">

</head>

                www.irishwebhq.com
Keyword density in document text
Another very important factor you need to check. 3-7
 % for major keywords is best, 1-2 for minor.
Keyword density of over 10% is suspicious and looks
 more like keyword stuffing, than a naturally written
 text.
Use plenty of text on your website – Incorporate a
 blog and update it frequently.




              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in anchor text
Also very important, especially for the anchor text of
 inbound links, because if you have the keyword in the
 anchor text in a link from another site, this is
 regarded as getting a vote from this site not only
 about your site in general, but about the keyword in
 particular.




              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in headings
(<H1>, <H2>, etc. tags)
One more place where keywords count a lot.
But be sure that your page has actual text about the
 particular keyword.




              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in the beginning of a
document
Also counts, though not as much as anchor text, title
 tag or headings.
However, have in mind that the beginning of a
 document does not necessarily mean the first
 paragraph – for instance if you use tables, the first
 paragraph of text might be in the second half of the
 table.



              www.irishwebhq.com
Keywords in <alt> tags
Spiders don't read images but they do read their
 textual descriptions in the alt attribute, so if you have
 images on your page, fill in the alt attributewith some
 keywords about them.
Adding keywords to the title attribute in images,
 buttons and links can also help.




               www.irishwebhq.com
4. Content
Content towards the top is most relevant
Update content regularly (blog?)
Share your content
  Write interesting articles that others will want to share
Keyword rich content (about 7%)
Easy to understand language




               www.irishwebhq.com
Content
Crosslinking
External Links (Trusted Sites)
Inbound Links (Google Page Rank)




                www.irishwebhq.com
External Applications
Google Webmaster Tools
Google Analytics
Hubspot Marketing Grader
Browser Add-ons
Social Media




             www.irishwebhq.com
SEM
Search Engine Marketing
Pay Per Click
  Google
  Yahoo
  Facebook
  Linked In
  Others




               www.irishwebhq.com
Avoid!!!
Tables
Frames
Trying to trick the search engines (Black Hat)
Link Farms
