Search engine optimization should be an active part of every business website’s overall marketing strategy. We list five ways for your company to jump start your SEO efforts:
1. Build quality backlinks to your website.
One of the most essential strategies to any search engine optimization campaign is building relevant backlinks from high profile websites to your website. The more backlinks that you have from high ranking and high quality sites with your targeted anchored keywords the better you will be in your SEO strategies. This must be a continued and dedicated effort that is done correctly so that you do not harm your SERPS.2. Create lots of relevant content to your website’s main subject
The old adage that ‘content is king’ is truly a golden rule in marketing your website. Search Engines such as Google seem to place a high relevance on content that is related to your website that can be directly and indirectly contributed to your website. Be sure to have lots of content created such as documents, letters, articles, video, and photos. Be prepared to hire excellent content writers that are native in the language of your website. If your website is in English, then only have people create content for you if English is their first language and who have excellent skills in creating content, such as writing on your blog, writing articles or writing content for your web pages.
3. Promote your content
What good is having lots of great content if no one can find it? Be sure to promote your content on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Digg and make sure that your website url is being promoted as well. Make sure that your content is promoted in such a way as to not appear as spamming. Provide your followers on Twitter, for example, with interesting tweets and engage your followers.
4. Ignore your competition
This statement may seem like a really bold thing to say in business and even perhaps downright cocky, but really, it is great advice. I am not saying to completely ignore your competition as it is good to know what strategies successful completion is engaging in, but to become too consumed with your competition will lead you to spend energies that would otherwise be spent on building your own powerful strategies. SEO is nothing more than grunt work and more grunt work but very worth it in the end. Keep at it.
5. Consider becoming active on the Internet’s social media sites and invite others to join you. This is an excellent way of promoting your brand and your content and will appear as natural activity to the search engines while increasing both traffic to your website and this should also help with your SEO efforts.
