Advantages of Search Engine Optimization

Feb 22, 2010

Search engine optimization refers to a method of increasing the volume and improving the quality of traffic to a website from search engines. The phenomenon working behind this methodology is that the higher the website on the search engine results list, the more viewership it will get. SEO basically involves editing the content, HTML and coding of the website concerned and performing various other technical operations. Here are a few advantages of optimizing your website :

Competitive edge: High rank in search engine results definitely gives your firm/company an easy edge over all your competitors. SEO is the process which is aimed at generating top ranks on various search engines. If a customer interested in a product offered by your company comes across your website before laying his/her eyes upon the website of your competitors, the chances of you beating down your rival competing company in the sale of the product increase manifold. The customer is less likely to look for the other companies prevailing in the market which offer the same products. Thus, search engine optimization gives you an easy edge in competition with your competitors.

Expansion of customer base and target audience: The name of your company flashing in the top 10 i.e. the first page or so of the display results of the search engine query leads to expansion of your customer base and a rise in the count of your target audience. Any random web surfer might become interested in products and services offered by your company and without any prior interest, may get motivated to purchase them. This will act as a bonus in your kitty as it leads to increasing your purchase and your profits. SEO also increases the target audience of your company manifold.

Boost sales: It is a proven fact that the display of your products and services through search engine results is much more likely to generate a sale as compared to online advertising on different sites. The company tends to get a lot of positive publicity in this manner. Getting on top ranks of a search engine attracts many new customers. We have seen many companies becoming multi-million dollar businesses only from sales through search engines.

Saves time, money and effort: Unlike paid advertising, SEO is cost effective solution for generating sales. As the number of users on Search Engines is quite high, the ROI for SEO is pretty attractive.

Search engine optimization is the easiest and most affordable way of generating sales from your website. In case you are looking for a way to boost the profits of your company manifold, optimize your website now. We at Centex Technologies provide state-of-the-art Search Engine Optimization services.

Latest In Google Optimization

Jan 17, 2010

GOOGLE is the name that strikes your mind first when you want to find something on internet. In true sense, Google is the synonym for internet. If you are looking for bakeries, florists, plumbers or even internet developers, all you need to do is to go to Google and search and find the right source to match your requirements.  Google is the lifeline for businesses that are looking to be found by clients all over the world.

Generally a normal user would just browse through the first couple of pages in Google while searching for what they need. If they do not find what they want, they would in general experiment by changing or modifying the keyword they use for searching. Keeping this in mind Google brings up the most relevant searches on the first page for different keywords. For this, Google uses an algorithm which would measure the site on its relevance with the keyword being fed in by the user to get the best and the most relevant result on the first page.

Although Google’s idea is simple, the implementation hasn’t been that easy.  There are many webmasters who keep researching on the Google algorithm and try to make changes to their websites according to what Google likes. This is a way to reach the first page of Google for a related key phrase. However, Google knows about such elements and to avoid such websites Google keeps changing their algorithm enabling such tricksters to keep making changes to their websites. The latest change that Google has made is very recent which has started taking effect January onwards.

Google has now emphasised on the way site code is written. Google wants the code of your site to be clean and easily read. In brief, Google wants you to keep the code (HTML and scripts) to be short and sweet. However, this is not the only thing to be able to see your site on first page of Google. There are others as well, but if you can just follow the Google guidelines on optimization, your site will surely rank well.

To sum it up all, type Google Guidelines for Optimization on Google and find out how Google wants you to build your website to be indexed easily by Google.

What is (SEO) Search Engine Optimization?

Nov 27, 2009

As the name suggests, SEO is optimizing a website for Search Engines. The reason to do so is to get found by people who use search engines to find information, look out for services, purchase products online etc etc. As search engines are programs, they have a set of parameters that decide which websites are to be displayed on search results. Nowadays search engines are so advanced that they index or crawl almost all websites, but the question is who will be displayed on the top results for a certain query.

Almost 70% of people do not go beyond 1st page for a certain term query. Out of these top 5 search results get 90% of the traffic. Now, with billions of people using search engines worldwide, it has become a new marketing avenue for professional companies. To make themselves, the most “popular” search engine, SE’s ranks the websites according to the relevance and utility of a particular website for a certain keyword query. Different parameters are used to ascertain the relevance of a website, which depends and vary from engine to engine. And SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a process that works around those parameters to make a particular website rank on the top SE results.

SEO is broadly classified as ON PAGE and OFF Page SEO

ON PAGE
On page SEO is something that is done on the website only like proper Title of pages, Analyzed Meta Information, Linking strategy, Content of website, Site architecture, Usage of programming language, proper usage of images and tagging. This all is the first step for SEO and is done after careful and technical analysis of keywords.

OFF PAGE
This includes making your website popular over the net. As a thumb rule, “the more the relevant, informative and similar sites linked to your website, the better optimized your site will be” This is not so simple as it seems, you have to be very careful in choosing the sites that link to you (if you do it yourself) OFF Page is generally accomplished by various processes like :

•  Link Building – Asking other relevant websites to link back to you.
•  Directory Submissions – Submitting your website in relevant directories
•  Article Submissions – Writing and submitting articles in article directories.
•  Social Bookmarking – getting site popular by getting the site content/informative section bookmarked on     social bookmarking sites like Digg, Squidoo, Technorati, Del.ico.us
•  Social Networking – making site popular by getting site linked with people( people who have some kind of     relation to nature of website we want to optimize) on popular social networking sites like myspace, facebook, orkut.
•  Blogging – creating similar blogs maintaining them and getting link backs from them.
•  Forum Commenting – Getting into conversation with people on similar discussion forums and leaving link over     there.
•  Buying links – buying high Page Rank Links
•  Press Releases – Submitting press releases and links in them

These are just the basic tasks broadly classified, the exact methodology if formulated only after carefully examining the website we want to optimize and for what keywords. And BEWARE wrong methodology can penalize your website, as search engines are very smart to sniff that someone is deliberately promoting their website. So it has to be gradual and natural.
