If you have launched a website you would like people to find it when users are searching for your products or services, bringing enquiries and ultimately more customers. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a way of building and maintaining a website so that the code and content are readable by the search engines enabling them to display your website as high as possible when the relevant search terms are entered.
Search engines such as Google want the correct result to come up when users are searching for a product or service. As a professional web design agency, Mello Systemz work within the guidelines set down by Google and the other major search engines such as Yahoo, Bing and Ask to ensure that your website will have the best chance of achieving a high position. Professionally built websites, easy to navigate and with well written and relevant content are rewarded by Google with a better position. Your website can appear in two ways:
These are the listings that are in the main body of the search results, sometimes referred to as organic listings. Only the search engine them can decide which websites get to page one and which are consigned to page one hundred. They use algorithms that award points for around 30 different features which include the quality of the website build readability, keyword density, relevance of keywords to page titles and one-way links. Using our SEO experience, we optimize each page of your website to take into account all these requirements.
One of the ways that Google consider the importance of a website and therefore how high it should be in their listing, is the number and quality of other sites linking back to your website. As a part of our SEO campaign, we will hand build article-based links that are relevant to your business and that will direct users to the relevant page on your website. For example, if you sell hair products and one of your key phrases is â€œshampoo for redheadsâ€ then if someone typed this phrase into Google, it would take them directly to the â€œShampoo for Redheadsâ€ page, rather than just to your home page. Google looks at this as being helpful to the person searching and will reward you with a higher listing.
Google Ad Words, sometimes called Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising are the sponsored link boxes to the right of and sometimes at the top of the natural listings. Every time someone clicks on your advert, you pay Google an agreed amount for that click. The great thing is you donâ€™t pay anything for someone to just look at your ad, it is only when they are interested enough in what they read to click on your link that you generate a charge.
Skill and experience are needed in managing a PPC campaign to avoid wasting your money.
