The holistic approach to SEO for Aspdotnetstorefront
Most people aren’t aware of how many different pieces there really are to the SEO puzzle. This is mainly due to cloudy information available online about the subject. There is also confusion on where SEO services begin and end in the realm of marketing for a compnay. On page SEO, Off page SEO, link building, content, sitemaps, Google Webmaster Tools, Google Shopping, feed submissions…..where does SEO end?
Our definition of SEO
Our SEO services are defined as encompassing anything and everything related to the goal of achieving more qualified traffic to your ecommerce store through search engines. The dozens of strategies that can be used to meet that goal are all subcategories, and are critical pieces of our services. Instead of being vague and making you read the same drivel that is on every other website, we find it helpful to give examples or specific tasks that have been performed for other Aspdotnetstorefront driven websites that had the goals of driving more organic traffic their website.
Client #1 – The large site that wants new ideas on how to get to the next level
Your website isn’t starting from scratch, you already have many advanced programs going on and a significant amount of traffic, but you think it could be better. You’ve hired SEO teams before and may have an internal SEO staff member. Your not looking for silver bullets, your looking for tried and tested methodologies and best practices that when applied diligently result in increased performance.
Client #2 – The smaller Ecommerce website that is newer to SEO
Your eager to grow and expand its marketing efforts if someone can help them make heads and tails of what they will get back if they invest in SEO.
Client #3 – You don’t care whether its SEO, Pay Per Click advertising, or anything else. Your just want traffic.
You just want a team who can get people to your website to buy stuff. The rest you don’t really care about unless you aren’t meeting your goals.
How InBusiness, Inc. would typically help these type clients
The conversation normally starts at 50,000 feet to determine what has worked in the past, what hasn’t, where you think the biggest opportunities for growth are, and other mundane business conversation. We would assess the completeness of your analytic tracking to make sure you are getting the proper feedback to make intelligent decisions based on data.
(it is very common for us to see large companies employing broken analytics, or analytics that is technical working but hasn’t been updated in years and no longer reports on current company objectives)
After this assessment we would typically do an assessment of the companies natural advantages. These could include a charismatic leader that likes to write, users willing to give reviews, knowledgeable staff, industry relationships, etc. These weapons are the fasted way to maximize your return on investment in SEO. By leveraging the strength of under utilized internal assets, we typically provide higher returns. (Plus, nobody knows your business like your team. Is our job to amplify and bring out that knowledge.)
The next step would be an audit of your on page SEO efforts, as well as the authority of your website in comparison to your competitors. This is essential because it determines where efforts should be focused and in what ratio’s. You can have perfect on page SEO, but if your website doesn’t have enough authority compared to your competitors websites it simply won’t rank well. On the contrary, larger sites often have plenty of authority but lack proper on website seo symantics like keyword optimization and site link architecture to maximize the use of the sites current authority. Its our job to determine where you stand….(normally its a combination of both)
Once these assessments are done a plan is laid out to fix on website technical SEO issues as well as utilize the natural strengths of your business to increase the authority needed to rank for profitable keyword phrases. This is done utilizing one or both of the following proven methods for increasing website authority:
- Increasing the size of the website by consistently publishing content (larger sites gain more authority)
- Increasing the number of quality websites that link to pages on your website using natural strategies (Inbound links are still the most critical factor in Google’s algorithm for ranking websites and building authority)
These two topics are not entirely separate from each other, and are not separate from your other business divisions. They are part of a larger over arching effort. They can also be broken down into specific methodologies. Here are just a few that we use currently.
- Developing and implementing content strategies to build new channel partnerships and strengthen current ones while building inbound links.
- Implementing interview and surveys of opinion leaders and publishing them, as well as turning them into infographics and other content that people can’t help but share.
- Developing content that bridges the gaps in your target markets buying cycles to gain more organic search traffic from keywords phrases your customers are searching, but that your website lacks the content to fulfill. (This is more common than you think)
- Finding other high quality opportunities to obtain inbound links to your website that result in higher authority such as guest posts, press releases, sponsored articles, joint ventures, industry case studies, employee referral programs, vendor partnerships, and many others.
The benefits of these strategies are more than just links. They create real world connections with people and customers in your industry and improve your search rankings. A two for one deal if you ask us.
While authority building efforts are occuring it is common for us to also address on website issues that hinder your website from maximizing the traffic it could be receiving from its current accrued authority. For example, on the day we wrote this page we noticed that a new Aspdotnetstorefront client did not have the pages on their website that were optimized for their most important keyword phrases linked to from the navigation bar. The result was that although the page ranked well, it was not fully benefiting from the available authority the website could provide that page if it was linked to from the main sidebar navigation. By changing this one feature, the client will most likely be able to increase their ranking for the prized keyword without any additional effort.
(note: 48 later the sites page jumped from 9th to 3rd for a term that had over 75k searches a month. There were 15 similar pages just like this one that saw similar results. A huge revenue boost)
SEO should be more than just optimizing title tags, building links, and writing worthless articles to please Google. When done right, it can have an impact on your business beside just better rankings. Its because that reason that we constantly strive to add new services to our mix to benefit the goals of you clients.
