SEO is the process of improving your website so it achieves a high ranking on a search engine results page and ultimately visitors to your site. Ranking high on a search engine results page takes time and work.
Let’s simplify SEO — and get your website working.
What is organic SEO?
Organic SEO refers to a website being ranked on a search engine results page without paying for Adwords. Methods used to improve a website’s organic SEO rankings include:
website content — use of relevant and meaningful keywords
user experience — search engines measure your site’s activity; a good website structure with helpful, logical, meaningful content contributes to SEO
backlinks from reputable websites.
Working on a website’s content and technical SEO contributes to a website’s organic SEO.
SEO takes time, work and patience.
Optimising web content contributes to search engine optimization. Content SEO includes:
use of relevant and meaningful keywords
user experience — search engines measure your site’s activity; a good website structure with helpful, logical, meaningful content contributes to SEO.
Optimizing your website through indexing, sitemaps, metatags, keyword research are some of the elements that make up technical SEO.
As a long-term strategy, both organic and technical SEO helps get your site ranked high without having to use Adwords or pay-per-click to get visitors to your website.
The SEO Process
Why use Adwords or pay-per-click?
Adwords help get clicks to your site by paying for your site to be listed on page one of a search engine results page. If your business and domain name is new, pay-per-click is a viable way to get your site noticed and hopefully visited. Adwords can help but your marketing strategy should also include work on your site’s organic SEO.
There is a ‘but’ when it comes to Adwords. You may get clicks to your site but if your content does not offer visitors a good user experience or meaningful content they won’t stay long on your site. Search engines notice when users bounce off sites without engaging with content. Websites with a ‘high bounce rate’ lose ranking potential in a competitive market.
The cost of Adwords? It varies and depends on your competition and the keywords you’re bidding for to get onto page one. Adwords can be expensive if pay-per-click remains your only website marketing strategy.
