34 What is SEO? Search Engine Optimisation is the process of making your website pages as appealing to search engines as possible. Your website should be optimised for keywords or phrases that your target audience is searching for online. For the most effective Search Engine Optimisation, each page on your website should be optimised for a single keyword or phrase. 34
35 Optimising your website Website optimisation can be split into two distinct areas:- 1. On the page optimisation - provides about 20%- 30% of the total ranking score 2. Off page optimisation or otherwise known as link popularity - provides about 70%-80% of the total ranking score 35
36 Optimising your website for Search Engines On Page Factors (20%-30%) Off Page Factors (70%-80%) 1. Title Maximum 90 Characters 2. Body Text Word Count, Minimum 200 Words 3. Headings H1/H2/H3 4. Link Text (Anchor Text) 5. Domain Names, File and Folder Names 6. Related Words in the Text, Latent Semantic Indexing Score 7. Keyword Repetition, Proximity, Prominence About 3%-6% 8. Alt tag attributes in Images and Links 9. Page Size and Code to Text Ratio 10. Search Engine Friendly Navigation No Session IDs 11. Number of Pages Indexed on the Website 12. Website Freshness/Frequency of Updates 13. Number of Outgoing Links and Relatedness 14. Domain Class (.edu/.org/.com..etc) 15. Site Map 1. Age of the Domain 2. Number of Inbound Links 3. Links From Delicious, Technorati, Stumbleupon, squidoo 4. Inbound Link Text (Anchor Text) Keyword Focus 5. Age of the Domains Linking In 6. Age of the Inbound Links 7. Keyword Theme of Domain/Link Page 8. Google Page Rank of Inbound Link Pages 9. Directory Listings (DMOZ.org, Yahoo, Second Tier Established Directory Listings. 10. Niche Directory Listings 11. Inbound Links From Authority or Subject Matter Expert Sites. 12. Domain Registration Length, the Longer the Better 13. Social media impact - links with Twitter and Facebook 36
37 On-Site Optimisation Optimise your web page titles, internal links and page content for the target keywords The best way to increase your rankings for a particular search term is to provide meaningful information or content based on that search term. Make sure you focus on the subject matter (don't try to satisfy too many terms with one web page). Get inside the searcher's head figure out what they want and give it to them. Be specific and provide details don't generalise and be descriptive. For a sales page use benefits and features to fully explain the problem and the solution. Update your information often setup a schedule to update and add more content. 37
38 See how Google views your website site:www.yourwe bsite.co.uk check how many of your pages are indexed and how your site is viewed. 38
39 Stressing Your Target Keywords to the Search Engines Using hyperlinks on descriptive pieces of text is also useful to build relevancy into a page. Rather than using [ Read more ] describe the link you are promoting on the text itself e.g. [ Yorkshire Holiday Park with swimming pooll]. Use of Synonyms Identify several synonyms that you can use as an alternative (or in the page copy) to boost the relevancy e.g. the keyword camping would have synonyms like campsites, tents, caravan park, holiday homes etc. Tip: Every Page of your website has the opportunity to be found by a specific key word / phrase and achieve a high search engine ranking 39

These external links are counted as votes for your website s popularity and quality. Recently, more emphasis has been given to links from social networking sites e.g. Facebook and Twitter 40
