Search Engine Optimization is what gets your website seen.  It's a marketing tool.  Advertising agencies using print or television can grab someone's attention with visual techniques.  Websites have to grab the attention of search engines so they will display your website higher in the rankings.  Why be on page ten when, with a little bit of work, you can be on page one!

What can you do to get your website noticed by search engines?

  • Make sure each page in your website contains a list of search terms in the html code that is relevant to the content on that page and in your website.  It will look something like this: <meta name="keywords" content="web design, graphic design, search engine optimization, social media, e-commerce" /> Of course, these keywords are for my website.  Your keywords need to be relevent to your content.
  • Make sure every picture in your website has an "alt" tag.  This tag is a verbal description of the picture.  Search engines can't see pictures.  They can only read the description of the picture.  If  you hold your cursor over the picture to the right, you will see the "alt" tag content which should read Search Engine Optimization.
  • Adding links from your website to your social media sites can also increase visibility on the web.  Make sure your business name is on your social media page the same way it is listed on your website. 
  • Start a blog.  While it's simple to add a blog to your website, it's advantageous to have an external blog to link to your website.  Every place your can legitimately link to on the web helps your standings in the search engine rankings. 
  • Submit your website to Google!  Google offers a wide range of reports about your website if you register your site using their free webmaster tools.  Ask me how to sign up for this free service.
