If your pages containgood, relevant, useful content, search engines will be more likely to rank your page higher for relevant searches. As an added benefit, good content will encourage more sites to link to your pages, thereby further increasing your search engine ranking. It's also good to update your content regularly. Visitors like freshcontent, so they will visit your site more often. More visits lead to more links to your content, which ultimately results in more traffic. 26. 2. DO YOUR KEYWORD RESEARCH Don't target a keyphrase just because it sounds right to you, or becauseit gets a lot of searches. Think about what you ultimately want visitors to do on your site (yourconversion goals), then find out what keywords people search for when they want to achieve those goals. Use tools such as Google Analytics to see which keyphrases result in the most goal conversions. Stay away from 1-word (or possibly even 2-word) keyphrases that havethousands of competitive sites in the search results. Instead, use tools such as Wordtracker and the AdWords Keyword Suggestion tool to find relevant niche keyphrases with high search volume and low competition. For example, if your online store sells Mega Widgets in the Boston area,target the keyphrase "mega widgets boston", rather than just "widgets". 27. 3. USE YOUR KEYWORDS WISELY Once you have a good list of keyphrases, deploy them sensiblythroughout your site pages. Make sure you've used your keywords in the following text blocks (these are in rough order of importance, most important first): The title tag The h1 and h2 headings in the page Link text (in links within the page, and in links from other pages) The page URL Image alt text Bold and italicised text Also make sure your keywords have a reasonable density (i.e. theyappear fairly often in the above text blocks but not too often) and prominence (place them near the start of each text block). Make sure you use text rather than images in the page where possible. 28. 4. GET OTHER SITES LINKING TO YOURS Most search engines rank sites more highly if they're linked to by other,well-respected sites. The key here is "well-respected". Just getting linked to from hundreds ofreciprocal link pages is not going to do much for your ranking. Target a few relevant, good-quality sites and directories that are full of useful info and rank well on the search engines, and try to get a link back from them. Free or Pay. Getting links from other high-quality sites can be a challenge. Here aresome tips: A "link to this page" function on each page of your site makes it easy forother webmasters and bloggers to link. Get in touch with the site owner and strike up a friendship. You're muchmore likely to get a link back from someone who knows you. 29. 5. STRUCTURE YOUR SITE FOR SEO Your site structure can play an important part in optimizing your pages.Make sure your pages contain plenty of links to other important pages in your site, and that it's easy to get to all sections of your site via your homepage or navigation menu.
