If you’ve spent some time taking care of your website’s SEO then you probably expect it to deliver some results.
You’ve added keyword-optimised content, you’ve taken care of some of the technical aspects of your site, and ensured there’s not too much duplicate content. So why is it not working? What’s going wrong?
SEO is complex, and it’s becoming increasingly so. Search engines are always tweaking their criteria to make search results more intuitive and reflective of the real concerns of users. This means that your SEO has to be spot on if it’s to succeed.
The latter may tell you that you need to be realistic about your SEO performance to downplay how much impact their approach will have.
While it’s important to be realistic about your strategy, it’s not unreasonable to expect results.
SEO fails for a variety of reasons.
It’s not only errors and omissions in the execution of the strategy, but also a lack of focus. There’s more than one way to take care of SEO, and it’s important to identify which strategy or combination of strategies you intend to use to reach your target.
Is your customer base local or national?
Are you creating an information-led strategy where you become a trusted source of high-value content?
Perhaps you want to be a part of a strong interlinked infrastructure for your line of business, mutually supportive specialisms or local marketplace.
To create the right SEO strategy, you need to understand the landscape in which your business is operating as well as how your competitors navigate it.
How does your target audience use search engines?
Are they looking for detailed information about some aspect of your products or services or is it looking to find the details of bricks and mortar businesses in their locality?
Your SEO strategy needs to make it easy for would-be customers to connect with you. To do this, you need to optimise your website to appear in results most relevant to their searches. In other words, you may be appearing at the top of search results but if it’s not resulting in extra enquiries, sales, and income, it’s likely to be because it’s the wrong set of results!
Many people make the mistake of attempting to second guess an ever-evolving algorithm too intently, sparking suspicion from the search engines.
Too many keywords, and not enough value, in your content and you’ll be punished.
If you’re serious about SEO, it pays to use an expert service.
