how do I increase search engine optimization?

Posted on 26 October 2010 by SEOman from Seattle

Initially, all small businesses (one the web and beyond) have limited financial resources to expensive SEO contracts and ads. Any tips from users to bump up web hits?

    We were a small software business and we have built ourselves up based on SEO alone. When we started we were only 2 persons and we have generated enough sales on the web to grow to 50 persons. Take a look at our website http://www.emanio.com. This has all been done through SEO.

    However, one of the many problems that I had in building the business was that there are so many charlatans out there promising the sky but delivering nothing. We wasted a lot of money with bad SEO firms until we finally found one that was both cheap (a requirement since we had almost no money) and good.

    Getting more hits to your website will cost you one way or the other. Either time or money. Methods such as banner ads, pay per click ads and ezine ads will cost you money while methods such as article marketing, forum marketing and classified ads will cost you time.

    Hey
    SEO is work and you can do it yourself or hire someone
    First I am going to give you a tip if you do hire someone and then I will help you get more traffic.
    If you hire and seo professional make sure you get some proof of their work. In addition if they have a website ask them what they rank well for if they are a good seo company they should rank well and drive traffic to their company site

    Now here is the quick tip you are looking for
    No matter what many have told you about SEO. SEO is really where marketing meets technology and basically you are applying marketing techniques in to existing technology
    So step one
    You need to first complete you site an in complete site will not help at all. You need to make your site SEO friendly
    Make sure your urls have keywords in them
    home.com/lawnchairs.html you don’t want home.com/?=125
    You need to check your Meta descriptions tag for each page this needs to be unique to the content in the page. Do the same for the title tag but make sure each page’s title tag relates to the description tag. also you can check you domain name against this as well sites rank better in the search engines when the domain name page title and page description are all related and have similar keywords in them

    Once your site in seo friend and follows some of the seo basics in which I listed I suggest the first thing you do is start a blog. yes a blog because most of the search engines rank content and pages better based on how it is updated so if you have a blog you will have an advantage over someone that does not

    Now you should focus on getting some links I think the last time I check the average top ten search results in Google and the other search engines is like 2-3 which is kind of low but you do need some links. The best way to get links is to first start with some high quality directories and articles sites one is ezinearticles and similar places like that. MAKE SURE TO LINK BACK TO YOU SITE USING KEYWORDS FOR YOUR SITE
    A more advanced thing to do is to create something of value at you site that people will link to
    Like a coupon discount a content freebies ECT. Or a game or something you do this you should get some links

    THINK LIKE A MARKETER GOOGLE AND THE OTHER SEARCH ENGINES ARE LOOKING FOR RELEVANCE.
    GO TO YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL GIVE A SPEECH
    GIVE OUT A SCHOLARSHIP AS THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER TO RUN THE STORE.
    BASICALLY YOU ARE INTEGRATING A LITTLE PR ADVERTISING THAT EQUALS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO MARKET ONLINE WHICH GIVES US SEO AND MORE TRAFFIC

    SEO can be lots of work if you go about it the hard way. Making changes to your site to do on-page optimization is fairly easy and won’t take long. What takes forever is getting quality backlinks from related websites. To solve this problem, check out Neurolinker. This is the cheapest and best (semi) automated backlink builder system out there.
