Yeah, that’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’ and clicks for free
“I want my … I want my … I want my S-E-O”
On-page SEO is what gets your website top organic SERP, the Holy Grail of internet marketing. The smart girl (or guy) knows by now that your website needs to be in those highly coveted (and competitive) search results. Market research has proven what you already know – those top 3-5 positions in search results gets over 75% of all the clicks.
That said, most small business sole proprietors (women and men in business for themselves) are aware of the acronyms SEO (search engine optimization) and SERP (search engine results placement – or page*) and what they mean to their bottom line. You might even know of a few “David v Goliath” stories yourself, how a small local business was able to edge out a much a larger national competitor in the SERPs!
How To Get to Those Coveted Top Positions in Organic SERP
And Get the Biggest Bang For Your Web Marketing Buck
There are many ways to get top organic SERP (search engine results placement). Many folks will buy ads on Google Yahoo and bing in a scheme known as Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising. A PPC ad campaign like Google Adwords can cost you thousands a month for a small, local business and millions more for a far larger search engine marketing (SEM) effort.
Then there’s all kinds of “off page” SEO to boost traffic and hopefully position in SERP, with #1 being the most coveted (Google search seo web design los angeles and see who’s on top, the screen shot below from today’s SERP check with cleared cache browser)
Getting that top spot involved many things but nothing more critical than solid, high quality seo web design. Any SEO worth his salt will tell you that your on-page factors have to be in place before you can be effective with all the off page SEO, including but not limited to costly link building campaigns, blog posting and forum commenting, social media campaigns and more!
Money For Nothing
Top organic SERP is not available for sale. You can’t buy it, it has to be earned! All zoo animal algo changes aside, the bottom line is “Quality Always Wins”. All the schemes to “trick” Google will only result in getting slapped off the SERPS altogether (which is why you are probably reading this now). A well crafted, clean code design with seo in mind, i.e. built into the code and content, not added on, is the strong foundation for your SEM strategy. A website with all the on-page SEO factors correctly applied can leverage your off page SEO investment exponentially!
Google’s search algorithms are based on two big concepts – relevance and authority.
“Relevance” goes to what’s on the page. SEO is still all about the words and when you get all the right words in all the right places, Google will see your website as being the most relevant to the search query and rank you higher.
“Authority” goes to how many others think you are an expert with the subject at hand and who links to your website. These are called “backlinks”, and Google treats them like votes, the cornerstone of their search engine philosophy. Now, however, the algos have improved to weed out “paid” or “spammy” links to your website, so a backlinking campaign strategy has to be very careful not to get evicted from SERP!
