About Me
What We’ll
Cover
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Pages
Internal/External Linking
Images/Videos
To understand the true meaning of SEO, let's
break that definition down and look at the parts:
Quality of traffic. You can attract all the visitors in
the world, but if they're coming to your site
because Google tells them you're a resource for
Apple computers when really you're a farmer
selling apples, that is not quality traffic. Instead
you want to attract visitors who are genuinely
interested in products that you offer.
Quantity of traffic. Once you have the right people
clicking through from those search engine results
pages (SERPs), more traffic is better.
Organic results. Ads make up a significant
portion of many SERPs. Organic traffic is any
traffic that you don't have to pay for.
SEO
● Write for your viewers, not for
Google
● Use your keywords in your
writing
● Use “How to” in your titles
● Use your location in your
content
SEO
Home Page
● Use what you do in your title
● Make sure there is text, not
just an image
Home Page
● Have a call to action
● Make it easy to contact you
Via Entrepreneur.com
Home Page
Contact Page
● Make sure customers have a way to contact you- the more ways the better
● Give them a map if they need to drive to you as well as writing out the
address
● Only use a form if you need more info or if there is a reason you need to
contact them
Contact Page
About Page
● Be sure to tell customers why they should spend their money with you rather
than your competitors, i.e. you’ve been in business a long time, you’re a local
owner, you volunteer in the community.
● A picture of you and/or your staff is important. People want to see who they
are going to be working with
● Be sure to list affiliations like BBB and professional networks.
About Page
Services
Page
Testimonials Page
● Testimonials - make this a whole page if you have enough.
● If you don’t have enough - get them
● If possible, embed them from a place like Google My Business so that
people know the testimonials are legitimate
Testimonials Page
FAQs Page
Other Pages
● Have a way to contact you on every page
● Make titles meaningful
● Use subheadings and bullets to make your
content easier to skim
● Use bold only when appropriate
● Keep colors and text sizes consistent to
look professional
Other Pages
● Have a blog
● Use subheadings and bullets to make your
content easier to skim
● Link internally
● Have a way to contact you on every page
Blogging
● Have a blog, and send it out so people don’t have to come to you.
● Write “how to” articles that help establish you as an expert
● Tell them how to get started and then list your contact info when they need
more help
● Use target words in those articles
● Use original content. You can quote other articles but only use a small part
of the article and be sure to credit the article and give a link to the original
article.
Blogging
Blogging
Other Tips
● Don’t use harsh colors that might strain the eyes
● Don’t use music
● Don’t have something that continuously moves - a bounce in to grab
attention is okay
Internal Linking
Internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on
the same domain. They are commonly used in main navigation. These type of
links are useful for three reasons:
1. They allow users to navigate a website.
2. They help establish information hierarchy for the given website.
3. They help spread link equity (ranking power) around websites.
Internal
Linking
Internal
Linking
● Helps people find
info more easily
● Keeps people on
your site longer
which helps with
your bounce rate
Internal
Linking
External Linking
● In layman's terms, if another website links to you, this is considered an
external link to your site. Similarly, if you link out to another website, this
is also considered an external link.
● Only link to “expert” sites or sites that are helpful to your audience.
Don’t link to a friend’s site that has nothing to do with your topic.
● Never pay for external links.
Images and Videos
● People love videos (see people don’t read)
● A picture is worth a thousand words (see people don’t read)
● Viewers spend 100% more time on pages with videos on them. 1
● Viewers are 85% more likely to purchase a product after watching a product
video.2
● Research shows that 90 percent of the information transmitted to the
human brain is visual, and people process visual information 60,000 times
faster than text.3
1. MarketingSherpa
2. Internet Retailer
3. 3M Corporation
Sometimes when I write an article
or presentation, I find someone who
designed one before me who did a
much better job than I could do.
With this presentation, I took a lot
of information from
https://gillandrews.com/website-
content-checklist-small-business/
I found this article well written and
visually appealing, and why reinvent
the wheel, right? Anyway, much
credit is due to Gill Andrews.

  • 3. What We’ll Cover SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Pages Internal/External Linking Images/Videos
  • 4. To understand the true meaning of SEO, let's break that definition down and look at the parts: Quality of traffic. You can attract all the visitors in the world, but if they're coming to your site because Google tells them you're a resource for Apple computers when really you're a farmer selling apples, that is not quality traffic. Instead you want to attract visitors who are genuinely interested in products that you offer. Quantity of traffic. Once you have the right people clicking through from those search engine results pages (SERPs), more traffic is better. Organic results. Ads make up a significant portion of many SERPs. Organic traffic is any traffic that you don't have to pay for. SEO
  • 5. ● Write for your viewers, not for Google ● Use your keywords in your writing ● Use “How to” in your titles ● Use your location in your content SEO
  • 6. Home Page ● Use what you do in your title ● Make sure there is text, not just an image
  • 7. Home Page ● Have a call to action ● Make it easy to contact you Via Entrepreneur.com
  • 9. Contact Page ● Make sure customers have a way to contact you- the more ways the better ● Give them a map if they need to drive to you as well as writing out the address ● Only use a form if you need more info or if there is a reason you need to contact them
  • 11. About Page ● Be sure to tell customers why they should spend their money with you rather than your competitors, i.e. you’ve been in business a long time, you’re a local owner, you volunteer in the community. ● A picture of you and/or your staff is important. People want to see who they are going to be working with ● Be sure to list affiliations like BBB and professional networks.
  • 14. Testimonials Page ● Testimonials - make this a whole page if you have enough. ● If you don’t have enough - get them ● If possible, embed them from a place like Google My Business so that people know the testimonials are legitimate
  • 17. Other Pages ● Have a way to contact you on every page ● Make titles meaningful ● Use subheadings and bullets to make your content easier to skim ● Use bold only when appropriate ● Keep colors and text sizes consistent to look professional
  • 18. Other Pages ● Have a blog ● Use subheadings and bullets to make your content easier to skim ● Link internally ● Have a way to contact you on every page
  • 19. Blogging ● Have a blog, and send it out so people don’t have to come to you. ● Write “how to” articles that help establish you as an expert ● Tell them how to get started and then list your contact info when they need more help ● Use target words in those articles ● Use original content. You can quote other articles but only use a small part of the article and be sure to credit the article and give a link to the original article.
  • 22. Other Tips ● Don’t use harsh colors that might strain the eyes ● Don’t use music ● Don’t have something that continuously moves - a bounce in to grab attention is okay
  • 23. Internal Linking Internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on the same domain. They are commonly used in main navigation. These type of links are useful for three reasons: 1. They allow users to navigate a website. 2. They help establish information hierarchy for the given website. 3. They help spread link equity (ranking power) around websites.
  • 25. Internal Linking ● Helps people find info more easily ● Keeps people on your site longer which helps with your bounce rate
  • 27. External Linking ● In layman's terms, if another website links to you, this is considered an external link to your site. Similarly, if you link out to another website, this is also considered an external link. ● Only link to “expert” sites or sites that are helpful to your audience. Don’t link to a friend’s site that has nothing to do with your topic. ● Never pay for external links.
  • 28. Images and Videos ● People love videos (see people don’t read) ● A picture is worth a thousand words (see people don’t read) ● Viewers spend 100% more time on pages with videos on them. 1 ● Viewers are 85% more likely to purchase a product after watching a product video.2 ● Research shows that 90 percent of the information transmitted to the human brain is visual, and people process visual information 60,000 times faster than text.3 1.

  • 29. Sometimes when I write an article or presentation, I find someone who designed one before me who did a much better job than I could do. With this presentation, I took a lot of information from https://gillandrews.com/website- content-checklist-small-business/ I found this article well written and visually appealing, and why reinvent the wheel, right? Anyway, much credit is due to Gill Andrews. Full Disclosure
