Search Engine Optimization in 2011: What You Should Be Doing for the Rest of Year

It’s not too late to get your website in order, when it comes to search engine optimization in 2010. There are a few things that you can do to ensure web traffic success, and encourage an organic growth of your website, when it comes to page rank. Do the items on this checklist, and you’ll incorporate the best practices of search engine optimization:


Checklist for Pages


The following is an ongoing to-do list for search engine optimization in 2010. You can refer to it each time you update your website, or check it periodically to ensure that all of these best practices are in place:

  • Write meta descriptions and meta tags, and add meta keywords tags
  • Make sure keywords are in URLs
  • Include a “tag” when linking to other texts on website, much like writing a caption for a picture
  • Work to boost the number of incoming links to your key web pages

Content


For successful search engine optimization in 2010, it’s important to incorporate other forms of content that you may not be used to or comfortable with. Search engines still love the written content, but in most cases, they love audio and visual content even better. When evaluating your website:

  • Make a list of non-written content on the website, and update, leave “as is”  or eliminate some
  • Make a list of multi-visual or audio content to add to the website and where you’ll add it
  • Revise your website to ensure it contains quality written content

Hire freelancers if necessary to help you generate good content for your website.

    Not all content is a King. You have to know how customer read the web page and what.
    If you have a poor usability and readability of your web site…. SERP can’t help you to achieve the business goals.

    Great question! Social Media falls into a larger umbrella called “Inbound Marketing.” Traditionally marketing would be 1) cold calls/ telemarketing 2) print marketing such as magazines or newspapers 3) radio advertising 4) TV advertising 5) outdoor advertising. The before mentioned techniques would be labeled as “Outbound Marketing.”

    I quite agree with Advicegraphics…ranking is not all about your content. That’s why you need an SEO specialist to help you balance out every aspect of your business going online.

    that is absolutely true, although i didn’t know that audio content is more important than text, or original text, if i have a you tube video in my home page does it help a lot?
