9 How Search Engines Work
10 The search engine spider follows links between websites, crawling the web looking for pages and documents to index When new content is found, the spider tries to index the page based on what it s about (if there aren t any technical barriers) When a user types a search query, the search engine searches its database for relevant results. The results are displayed to the user in a search results page

13 SEO Ranking Factors: On-page & Offpage factors to consider
19 The Importance of Content In the world of SEO, content is king! Why is content so important? Engages website visitors Increases search engine traffic & rankings Gets other websites to link to you
20 SEO Content Best Practices Write with the end user in mind, not just for search engines. Write great content that encourages websites to link to your page. Write sticky content that keeps a visitor on your website visitor time on site factors into search engine algorithms. Act like a publisher, create a content publishing strategy for the year.
21 SEO Content Best Practices Each web page can only rank for one or two keywords - write about one topic per page. Update content frequently. When content is complete & posted, it should be optimized for search engines. Socialize your content, post it to all of your social media accounts.
22 Write Compelling Content Compelling SEO content should: Be easily scan-able Utilize Bullet Points when appropriate Make use of Bold and Italics Have internal links Be laid out well Use images and video Have at least 300 words
23 Content Research Review internal website search data to find out what visitors are looking for on your site. Check out current website rankings to find out where you can use improvement and increase rankings. Selecting the right keyword is really important this will impact how much search engine traffic is driven to your website.
26 Keyword Research Use the Google Adwords Keyword Tool for keyword research to find out the exact keyword phrase to target Orlando Hotels vs. Orlando Resorts Look at Google Adwords Keyword Tool to find out any missed opportunities. Adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
27 Google Adwords Keyword Tool
28 Optimizing Content Once the keyword has been selected, it should appear in the following places: Title Tag Header (H1) tag At least 3x in the body content URL Image Alt Tag Link to the content from other pages
29 Keyword Optimization URL Content Image Alt Tags Match Keywords Link Anchor Text Meta Data
32 Tips for entering a new content page Consider where you are putting the page. The taxonomy or structure of the website is very important. If you need to move or delete a page, set up a redirect. Enter Alt Tags for images. Enter Link-Title tags for links.
33 Common Content Pitfalls Avoid duplicate content. This confuses search engines and will have a negative impact on both pages. Not having content for keywords you want to rank for. Lack of content a good rule of thumb is to try to create 300 words or more per page.
34 Social Media & Search Engines Social Media is considered content on the web, and influences rankings. Bing and Google both use social signals in their search algorithms. Results containing social context now have the potential to rank in any position on the first page. Engage! Ask questions and start a conversation. The search engines are looking for social relationships.
35 Facebook In 2010, Facebook was the most popular Google search term with almost 25 billion searches. Bing integrates Facebook Likes in search results. Privacy settings - make sure you can be easily found. Naming and tagging are important for photos & videos. Questions are weighted heavily, so ask away! Gather as many I m attending! replies for events.
36 Bing & Facebook Facebook Likes affect rankings, so you want more people to like your web pages, blog posts, etc. People now appear in search results, so if a user searches for your city, any friends they have there will appear. Make sure that locals are your brand ambassadors. People can share potential vacations to their wall to get feedback before they purchase.
38 Twitter Google may use your Twitter bio content as a the meta description of your profile on search results. Write keyword-rich tweets. Put your website link on your profile page. Grow your base of followers. Get into the habit of retweeting worthy tweets.
39 Google Plus Obtaining many +1s will increase rankings in Google. Google can use the data to determine the quality of the content or website. Set up your Google + account for your Business. Google recommends putting the +1 button on the homepage - that way users are endorsing your entire website, including your brand.
