21 Optimizing A Site What We Will Cover: 1. Overview of Keywords 2. Content & Keyword Frequency 3. Page Titles 4. Meta Tags
22 How Keywords Work Keywords are the singular words or phrases that customers use to search for a business. Important to know what keywords can drive traffic for you. What keywords are driving traffic for your competitors? SEO professional can help Google Keyword Tool
23 Google Keyword Tool
24 The Importance of Content Google And The Search Engines Love Text More text is better than less, but the text copy must be good and offer the end user something meaningful to read about the business.
25 Amount of Content While there is no magic number of words per page, target words per page as a goal. Think about how often Google highly ranks Wikipedia pages.
26 Keyword Frequency How often you repeat keywords on a page is significant for SEO: Place the first instance of the keyword early within the first sentence in the first paragraph. Keywords should be repeated within the copy roughly 1-3 times for every 100 words. Use keyword phrases for internal links. Don t overstuff the page with keywords
27 Copywriting Tips Be specific when describing your products and services: Think like a potential customer who wants to learn about your business and why they should choose you versus the competition. Think about the questions a typical new customer asks about your products or business What is the tipping point?
28 Refresh Content Regularly Google rewards websites who refresh their website regularly. Utilize the website to make press announcements, sales promotions, product announcements or timely information how to s on a regular basis. A blog also helps refresh the content if properly installed. If you add a blog to a website, keep it up to date and refreshed regularly.
29 Duplicate Content Do NOT duplicate content from page to page. Never duplicate copy from any other website. Google knows what copy is on other sites and having content that appears on another site will not help your keyword ranking.
30 Using H1 Tags Each Page Should Have Unique Content and Headers Headings should be structured in an H1, H2, H3 format. Keywords should preferably appear in the H1 headers on every page most important for SEO
31 Example of an H1 Header
32 Meta Information Page Titles The page title meta tag is extremely important to the ranking process. The page title not only tells Google what the page is about, it also appears on the search results page when someone has typed in a keyword phrase. Page titles should contain the primary keywords for that page. The search engines will only display the first 65 characters so make sure that your primary keywords appear.
33 How the Meta Title Appears
34 Meta Description The meta name description does not play a part in the ranking process, but tells people about your business. The description should contain keywords
35 Some Tips About Meta Description Tag. The description should contain relevant keywords that people are searching for Each page should have its own unique description that describes the information found on the page A description may include a call to action
36 Alt Tags Alternate tags are words of copy that we can be assigned to specific images on a page. Search engines rely upon the alternate image tag to describe the pictures that can be displayed in image search results..
37 Website Tracking Tools What We Will Cover: Tool Sets That Every Website Owner Should Have:

You can even annotate Google Analytics based on certain dates so that you can track the results of your changes.
39 Bounce Rates Additionally Google Analytics will give information on how people are reacting to your site by providing bounce rate information.
40 Bounce Rates Bounce rate displays the percentage of people who leave after landing on only one page. This will alert you to address specific pages and test various copy, images and content that people find interesting and want to learn more. Determine if they are abandoning any part of the shopping process.
41 Google Webmaster Tools Another free Google tool. More oriented to the site as Google sees it.
42 Google Webmaster Tools Goal of webmaster tools is to give feedback to the website owner that would make the end user experience better.
