Does SEO really work? I was just being a devil’s advocate when I asked this question, simply there seems to be a lot of information about it.
Perhaps a few years ago you really didn’t need it, because not very many people were on line. Now, you really got to find ways to be found in the crowd. SEO is just one way..here are some replies I got back from my question.
• Absolutely,undoubtedly, and in many ways. One of my clients has an organic methodology that is fail-proof. There is no denying the power of SEO and it should be an integral part of every marketing plan and strategy. SEO can be a huge part of lead conversion when integrated into online marketing, PR uploads and social media campaigns.
• Sure not a problem at all. please have a look at – http://www.salsainternet.com.au/dds-landscaping.html there are many case studies for you to read. What I think is critical is that you work with an agency that:
1) understands your business objectives
2) educates you in the field of SEO and Online Marketing
3) has an excellent track record with references and results
4) is a white-label seo services I hope this helps.. SEO and Online Marketing have to work together with Social Media Marketing – as i understand it, SEO & online marketing of your blog for example, is imperative to getting your brand/service recognised and found when searching in Google/Bing/Yahoo.
Conor Cunneen • Yes Search Engines can drive business. I have worked hard on my site development in past six months. I have picked up two sizeable speaking engagements in the past two weeks because planners found my website via Search Engines. Thank God for that I say, because the rest of the year has – shall we say – provided significant opportunity for improvement!! Keywords that get me on front page Google and often #1 spot include ”Humorous Keynote Speaker” ”Keynote Speaker Cancer” ”Keynote Speaker Foodservice” ”Irish Keynote Speaker” To be honest, I was surprised how fast I got good results for some searches which forced me to scramble to improve my landing pages. Get into the mind of your customers / clients and figure out what words they will use to search for your product / service. I am currently working on two important search terms where I place page 4-5 at the moment. Objective is to get to #1. We’ll see how long that will take.
Patti Fousek ::SEO and Social Media Consultant • The simple answer is yes, SEO works. The long complicated answer is… it depends on a lot of factors. Search engine optimization is not a “fix it and forget it” solution.
Things to consider are:
1. Keyword research and selection – optimizing webpages for keywords your target market actually uses are key – try to avoid company jargon that no one else knows.
2. Overall objective of the website – what are your calls-to-action?
3. How obtainable are those objectives (basically, are they realistic)
4. The design of the site – how many steps does a visitor have to take to complete the desired action on the site (are your calls to action clear)
5. Navigation – is the navigation search engine friendly? Is it human friendly?
6. Inbound links – is your site link worthy? How many inbound links do you currently have from authority sites?
7. Do you have web analytics installed – if you have the budget, go for HubSpot or Omniture. Successful SEO is takes effort, time and patience, but it’s worth it.
