SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization refers to a website getting traffic from a search engine organically. Meaning you did not pay to rank that position, you rank naturally by optimizing your website in various ways.

What does Google do?

Search Engines like Google consist of: a spider, an index and an algorithm. A spider crawls through your website and follows the links on your website; it saves your pages in a database called the index. This index is updated every time the spider goes back to your website. After indexing your website Google can now display it the search result. Google has a particular algorithm that decides which pages it will show and in what order. Nobody knows what this algorithm is but what we do know is that Google’s mission is “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”.

Are my services or products changing?

If your services or products are drastically changing, or you are adding new ones, you might consider a website redesign to support the new additions.

How good is my traffic and is it being analysed? 

It is important to make sure your site is being tracked by Google Analytics so you can see what type of traffic reaches your website. If you are not receiving a lot of traffic it could be due to disqualified traffic meaning your visitors bounce off your website immediately or spend less that 12 seconds there.

That traffic can be caused from poor quality keywords which are keywords that don’t show correctly what your business is about or what it’s services are. Some of these keywords might even be irrelevant and have no relation to your business. It is important to study your visitors and make sure your information is as clear as possible.
