All websites desire to be listed at the peak of the best known search engines. Website developers and business owners alike recognize that an effective site involves more than simply spending time and money on a good design. The overall goal is to get visitors to the website and then make it ‘sticky’, using good, solid content to stay them there.
Boosting a company’s web presence is a critical aspect of any good marketing campaign like social network marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) is how flourishing websites get visitors, and keep them. Search engine optimization is the art of striking a balance between the words and phrases visitors use in search engines when looking for information, with website content that is written to appeal to site visitors.
The first step in making effective SEO copy is to resolve what keywords or terms site visitors are using to find your website and/or your competition. By using tools such as Hitwise or the less expensive choice, WordTracker, you can get common terms and phrases your content should be built around.The top search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing also have their own functional tools for determining which keywords are being searched on, and how much traffic you can expect to get for certain keywords and phrases. It’s often best to be very specific when selecting your search terms too, choosing multiple word keyphrases instead of single words.
