Smart SEO Tweaks to Your Website Content:
So you proactively invested top dollars to hire amazing web developers, UX experts, and marketing professionals to construct a business website. For obvious reasons, you expected a spike in organic traffic, conversions and ROI. Well, if your business website ranks poorly and gets featured on the 7-8th page in the Search Result, customers would probably never reach your website.
The organic leads don’t enter the sales funnel unless your business page gets featured right at the top of the list. Web-users seldom traverse through pages 5,6,7… of the Google search results. So the articles, the page content and business objectives would be useless your page ranks at the top of the search results. SEO is therefore of utmost importance.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the visibility optimization of your business website through effective content management.

Correct SEO Tags Can Increase Search Rankings
SEO tags are one of the key parameters which hold immense potential, as far as determining website page ranks are concerned. Meta tags are XHTML or HTML tags that are placed within the HTML documents in order to describe the content of the article not just to the visitor on the web but also to the popular search engine that is looking to categorize and rank your article or website.
Prevelant Variations on Meta Tags: Title Tags, Description Meta Tag, Robot Meta Tag, Rating Meta Tag, Publisher Meta Tag, etc.
When a visitor on the website types a particular search word, the search engine will crawl the metadata comprising of these Tags for the most relevant search results.
Local SEO Strategies: Google My Business Page & Schema Markup
For successful business ventures, the appeal to geographic local customers must not be forgotten. A person surfing the web for a barbecue joint in Manhattan must get results around the area and not halfway across the world. This highly effective way of online marketing where business promotion is targeted towards local customers is called Local SEO.
- The business should have a properly configured Google My Business Page.
- Attaching the My Business page to a domain email address is a major step towards increased legitimacy.
- An accurate address, a correct phone number with area code that connects directly to the establishment and authentic website URL are a must.
- Third-Party Visibility: Several popular websites like Yelp, Yellow Pages, Bing, Refer Local, etc. make a local listing of businesses in specific categories of products and services.
- Local Content: The Landing pages must have Title tags and Meta descriptions containing the city, state, and keywords. The inclusion of business timings and customer testimonials in the landing pages is also recommended.
- Use of Schema markup: Schema.org was launched in 2011 to collaborate with search engines and understand important information from websites. The Schema markup tells search engines to display information such as the type of business, venue, business hours, reviews, etc. which is a very useful tool for implementing Local SEO.
Press Releases for Diverse Anchor Text
A press release is an article published on a trending topic and submitted to the press for publishing. The article could be a description and critics of an event or a new business startup or even a new product launch.
Anchor: The anchor text is simply the text that is hyperlinked and can be clicked to lead to another link. If you create an anchor text that is not directly your keyword, SEO terms it as Natural Branded Anchor Text. A few elements you could use for Natural Branded Anchor Text are: the site’s URL, business name or brand name, or simply generic terms like click here, read more, know more, etc.
Co-occurrence: Next time you are writing your anchor text, look for phrases that are closely related to your main subject or core keywords. This will help you avoid keyword stuffing.
Domain Name: Using your domain name as your anchor text is a good option for your press release. It will give the readers a clear idea as to where they would be landing once they click on the link.
Business name: The point is to make your anchor links look natural – that is what Google and major search engines look out for. You are the link between your website and your press release that just got published. Flaunt your name in a couple of anchor text for the readers to know the person behind the amazing article they are viewing. Google already knows about it so it won’t count against you.
