09 Mar 10 Maximizing Website Ranking with Smart Search Strategies

A recent study at Forrester revealed that nearly 80% of website traffic is the result of search engines.  That means if you want to increase the volume of website visitors it is imperative that your site be ranked high on the major search engines like Bing, Google and Yahoo.

Most business owners invest a significant amount of time and money trying to get the search engines to rank their website favorably. 99.9% of business owners fail trying to do it themselves, because the search engine algorithms are very complex.  You could do a great job on many aspects of web development, but if you miss a few beats, the search engine spiders will not reward your site with good rankings.  In most cases, the search engine spiders end up missing most of the websites pages because of poor site architecture and no sitemap.

Search engine optimization, aka SEO, is a pragmatic process of preparing your website for the search engine’s evaluation.  A lot of companies claim they offer SEO services, but very few marketing companies understand the formula for optimizing a website to successfully rank for relevant keywords that get them traffic from visitors that meet the business niches.

In 2000, Lead Planet founder, Bryan Dornan rolled out Nationwide Marketing in an effort to provide internet marketing solutions like web design, public relations, SEO and in addition to direct response for media like TV and radio.

A few years later, Dornan created a think tank called Smart Search Strategies that focused solely on search engine optimization. This group of talented internet marketers created a unique SEO system that encompassed each component of white-hat search marketing that Google, Yahoo and MSN required for long term rankings.  The SSS project was a huge success and the think tank developed into a full-fledged SEO marketing agency that helped hundreds of businesses significantly improve their ranking online.  Our SEO team offers elite internet marketing services for businesses that are serious about increasing the traffic to their website.

09 Mar 10 Content Really is King

Anyone in the internet marketing arena has heard the phrase, “content is king.”  Many SEO marketers and web developers do not want to admit how important good copy written articles can be for SEO marketing campaigns for most industries.  Let’s face it, when you combine a relevant link building campaign with good keyword rich content, you have most of the formula nailed for successful organic search marketing.  The search engine spiders love content and in most cases so do your visitors, so build your website with insightful content that features a clear “call to action” and incorporate catchy landing pages into the mix to maximize lead generation.  I recommend focusing on posting interesting articles that command the attention of your readers.
