SEO Spam Revisited

by webmaster @ Lizardwebs

I was surfing through your Website and realized that despite having a great design; it was not ranking on any of the search engines (Google, AOL and Bing) for most of the keywords relating to your business. Oh my God. If I had a buck for every email that I have received that uses EXACTLY this same line. The lack of creativity. The cut and paste laziness. The sheer audacity of pretending to know what ANYONE is actually trying to rank.  SEO is NOT for lazy people. Some people must bite on this though or this particular email would STOP ending up in my email on a daily basis. I keep asking myself “Why?” To me, I see a copy/paste bit of blather indicating someone that has never visited my site is trying to act like they know what they’re doing. Of course, when you try to sell SEO TO an SEO company, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that they have never visited your site. “Yes, sir. How are you doing today?” “Great! What can I get for you?” “Well, I’m actually here to bring you a DELICIOUS bite of our brand new Whopper™!” “You DO realize you’re at the McDonalds™ drive-thru window, right?” That said, I AM an SEO company and I personally have been playing in the world that would become the internet since back in 1983. At that time, I first connected to the CANDE Burroughs 3600 at East Carolina University through a 300 baud modem jacked into a Commodore 64 computer from the Village Green Apartments in Greenville NC. It was so slow that you could easily out-type the screen – tap a whole sentence in and it would take several seconds to send to the university and then come back to the screen. Long live COBOL. But I digress… The ploys of online SEO companies – both solid/legit and your average spammer types – have evolved and changed.  Something that still remains is that someone is looking to get business from you in a so many ways.  I so love ruining a script reading person’s day. “How about I put $100 per day in YOUR pocket next week?” (And of course, they are expecting an immediate “Yes!”) “Oh man. Do you know the tax implications of that? I don’t think so. No thanks.” and crickets ensue… You can tell people that know what they’re actually talking about when it comes to legit search engine techniques when you throw them something like that. They have enough wherewithal to break out of the pitch and legitimately address the problem. The doofuses will just repeat themselves with absolutely no comprehension of what was just said. Sure, it’s probably evil on my part, but so is the amount of time in my day that gets wasted dealing with that crap either directly or indirectly. Client: Eric, I’m not ranking real well. Me: You’re in the maps. You’re #1 for several keywords like on your last report you got 4 days ago. #2 for another […]

All The Great Search Engine Optimization Advice You Need

by condormarketing @ Condor Marketing SEO

SEO can be hard to grasp for a new person, but it is essential for website owners. If you implement the correct strategies, your website can be a primary traffic stop for internet searchers.

Just because you advertise more does not mean that your rank will improve. You can boost traffic through advertising, and thus sales, but you aren't increasing your rankings.

Learn how much experience this expert actually has. Find out how much it will cost, and what the benefits will be for your business before jumping in feet first.

Even more important than search engine ranking is having great content on the site. SEO is intended to draw repeat visitors, but to get them to stay a while. Using this type of strategy will get your site the ranking you need.

Make your site easier for search engine spiders to navigate by avoiding dynamic URLs whenever possible. Web crawlers are not designed to crawl these kinds of pages, so make your site's directory structure and page names are keyword-friendly.

Cleaning your site – Part 2 – Page Structure

by webmaster @ Lizardwebs

Continuing on with our “Let’s clean up yer site” run, let’s take a look at MORE of the onsite search optimization things… Back in the good old days, before search engines had as many smarts as they do today – and SEO was NOT a daily marketing item, things were pretty simple. We were ticked to DEATH when one of our hardware suppliers put UP a website so we could download new drivers pronto! This was WELL before the days of automatic updating were even probably conceived. There just weren’t that many sites out there. I remember being able to get updated drivers for my Creative sound card. What a joy. Didn’t have to request and then wait for shipment of those crazy disks. Lest I get drawn off into reminiscence, the point is, back in those days, it was NOT so difficult to keep track of things. Structures were usually what those of us in the business call a “flat” structure – every page was in the “root” of the website. Very few even THOUGHT about structuring their sites. You often saw just small sites. There were NOT those thousand page+ behemoths that almost ANYONE can create effortlessly today – say NOTHING about massive sites like Microsoft or Wikipedia. There was no need to do a whole lot of structuring with your 10 page site… I could go to the Creative Drivers page and there would be my card number and I clicked on the link and downloaded the zip file and installed. Granted, downloading it at 14.4K was a lengthy process, but… As time went along, the web became more and more crowded. Those same files that we went to Creative to get might also be offered elsewhere – maybe with a bunch of OTHER manufacturer drivers. There had to be some sort of structuring to help categorize things and make accessing finding them easier. As time went along, the search engines had to get “smarter” to better categorize things and keep track of them. What web devs discovered worked well for THEM was to categorize their OWN pages in a way that might logically make sense TO the search engines.  Not only did it make it easier for web devs and webmasters to keep track of their pages as their sites got bigger and bigger, it helped create logical relationships that the search engines could understand – parent/child relationships. Flat Structures Just to make sure we’re on the same page – a flat structure would give you urls like http://mydomain.tld/mypage1, http://mydomain.tld/mypage2, http://mydomain.tld/mypage3, etc… This kind of structure is easy to maintain – there is no concern over categorizing it, CSS and link structures are easy to handle even if done in manual HTML/CSS/Javascript. That can be fine if there really is not too much content, or your products are not very diverse, or maybe you only have one service / product and don’t need explanations too far. But when you do have more than just one service […]

Secure Web Design Considerations Raleigh NC

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

[Raleigh NC] I’d like to talk about the security of your website, how this pertains to your choice of a web design provider and host, and why, as a North Carolina business owner, you should care. It may surprise you to hear me say that the security of your website is not about your website, plugins, firewalls, or any of that stuff. Rather, the security of your website is primarily about risk management, which is to say, making a deliberate and informed decision about the level of legal and financial risk you are willing to assume as a business owner. If you ignore security, you could not only find yourself put out of business by a casual hacker with nothing better to do, but also potentially landing in prison and facing financial penalties for failing to take due care. This isn’t just a concern for banks or companies on Wall Street. It’s a considerable concern for the local shop serving their customers day in and day out, as I’ll explain.
Hacking Facts

Over 50,000 WordPress websites were hacked in July 2014 through just a single vulnerability (Source: PC World)
Over 800,000 banking credentials were stolen using hacked WordPress sites in October 2014 (Source: Data Breach Today)
Almost 2 out of every 3 companies that experience a data breach are forced out of business within 6 months (Source: Symantec/NCSA)
Let me repeat that: two out of every three businesses that have a data breach will go out of business.

Despite what you friends or family may have told you in the past, they are, in fact, out to get you — and most of them really don’t care about the affect it has on you or anyone else. In fact, sometimes that’s quite their point. Motives are so varied that it’s hard to generalize, but they may include financial gain, hactivism, politics, political or industrial espionage, elimination of a competitor, or maybe even just general meanness. And what only takes them 5 minutes could cost you your entire business.
Choosing who to listen to can be a challenge of its own.  There are certainly plenty of web designers and Internet experts out there. There are also a lot of people who capitalize on fear, unfortunately, so it can be difficult to know who to listen to. So, today, I have nothing to sell you. I just want to explain why you need to take this subject seriously, and share some thoughts about what you can do about it. Security has always been part of how I approach solution design, because no implementation is complete without appropriate security controls – without them, you’re just begging for trouble. On the best day, you do everything right and only succeed in reducing the chances of getting hacked. Without at least some effort put on security, though, it’s like leaving all your money laying on the sidewalk next to a busy highway. It’s only a matter of time until someone takes it. What you need to know is that unless you have made specific provisions for the security of your website, you’re probably receiving a lot less protection than you think, and the potential impact of getting hacked is likely worse than you’d imagine.
If you’ve never thought much about the security of your website or discussed it with whoever maintains it for you, you need to be worried. The real problem isn’t just getting hacked and the lost revenue you experience until it’s fixed. If you have a good maintenance contract, your provider will be able to restore a backup for you. The bigger problem is that you can get blacklisted by all the major search providers and email servers, turning your once-great website into a thing of yesteryear, and just restoring your website won’t get you off the blacklist. Then there’s the whole public relations aspect, and loss of customer faith in you. Once those news stories are out there, you may have to spend a lot more on damage control and restore credibility. Getting hacked can destroy your business, as you find that not only can no one find your website in searches, but your emails start getting rejected when you try to send someone an email. This can be unrecoverable. And depending on the exact situation and what happened, you could find yourself guilty of criminal charges, face financial damages, and wind up in prison – all for something that a little basic security might have prevented. It may not be fair, but it unfortunately happens. Hopefully it’s now clear why I said earlier that website security is about legal and financial risk.
Key Things to Know

No security is ever guaranteed or absolute. There’s no such thing as an impenetrable website or information system. Neither myself nor anyone else can truly guarantee that you will never get hacked. A determined hacker will eventually find a way in – period. There is no getting around this. That’s just how it is. All we can do is make it harder, improve your odds, and increase your chances of recovering from it gracefully.
Whether you know it or not, you have associated legal and financial risk. The only question is whether you understand that risk and have made informed decisions about it. Ideally, you would spend as much money as needed to create a nearly-impenetrable security barrier. I’m sure we all would if we had the money. The reality is that most people can’t afford ultimate security, so security becomes an exercise in deciding what level of legal and financial risk you are willing to assume.
Security is built in layers. Your job is to first and foremost stay off the radar of hackers looking for easy prey, so you don’t show up like a juicy target just begging to be hacked. Second, in the event that someone of ill-intent stumbles across you while looking for easy pickings, you want it to appear that you’re more trouble than you’re worth. In other words, ideally an evil-doer seeking random targets would look at your web site’s security and pass you by in favor of easier prey. These first two aspects provide some level of security all on their own, but unfortunately they don’t actually stop anyone from breaking in. That’s why you also need defensive measures to help keep them out if they try to break in. No security is ever bullet-proof, but there are things that can make it harder.
Many hosting providers provide some minor level of security, but it’s important to understand that this security is sometimes more about protecting them – not you. I need to explain what I mean by that. Hosting providers will usually operate firewall and intrusion prevention systems – but some are more active about this than others. What some of them will do is disable your website completely if they see suspicious activity. However what usually happens is they just take your site down and don’t tell you, because their main goal is to keep their servers from getting blacklisted. In other words, they may well take your website down in order to protect themselves. (It’s probably better than your website being used to carry out additional attacks, though.) Unfortunately they don’t usually tell about this – you find out later the hard way that your website is offline, and have to figure out how to restore it back to operation and figure out if you’ve been blacklisted. Conversely, there are some hosting providers who are very proactive on security and really go the extra mile for their customers – they are not all created equal, as my story below will illustrate.
Most web design contracts that I’ve seen don’t address this subject at all.

The Alarming Truth
Now it’s time for a true story. In recently working with a Raleigh-area client, I set about making some improvements to their .htaccess file – industry standard security measures widely regarded as a proper standard of care – but the hosting provider felt it was too much load on their servers, so they disabled all of the security measures – all of them – without even asking! They just turned it all off, leaving the client much more vulnerable to attack. I run these exact same protections on other providers without a problem, but apparently this particular provider felt that industry-standard security was too much work for their server. 
Consider This…
A data breach can cost you your business, jail time, and financial penalties, so I hope you’ll agree that it’s worth taking seriously. Since my primary focus on this article has to do with web design and hosting, here are a few takeaways for you:

Realize that ‘they’ are actively looking for targets just like you at this very moment, with tens of thousands of websites getting hacked every single month.
Talk to an attorney that deals with these issues and take legal measures to protect yourself. Read the fine print on any existing contracts.
Discuss options for cyber insurance with your insurance carrier – something many businesses are not even aware is available.
Discuss protective measures with your information technology providers. If you’re in the same boat as most people, you’re probably going to find that nobody is promising to protect your data unless you explicitly contracted with a provider to do just that. That’s not any sort of trickery or deception; it’s just that they typically have not built the additional associated cost into the rate you’re paying for basic services. Often, additional services are available to you.
Monitoring and security are not the same thing. Monitoring is helpful, but quite often the services offered by hosting providers don’t tell you that you have a problem until your website is already hacked. It’s good to know so that you can respond and hopefully contain the situation before too much damage is done, but preventing it would be a lot more helpful – wouldn’t you agree?
Don’t store customer information, confidential or business proprietary information, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), or Payment Card Information (PCI) in your website or online databases without proper security controls.
Have a plan to both provide for information security, and for how you will react in the event of a breach – and store a copy of this plan offline somewhere.
Implement strong information security throughout your business as a whole in order to protect all information assets. It only takes one weak link.
Once you understand the cost of any additional legal measures, insurance, and information technology infrastructure improvements to reduce your exposure level, you can make informed choices about the level of risk you are willing to assume for your business.

WordPress Security Tips
I serve B2B and B2C companies throughout North Carolina, so I have a good view into the reality of what’s happening. With WordPress being a very common choice among small businesses due to its power and flexibility, many companies hire someone to implement a WordPress website for them without ever discussing security. Simple HTML sites are a lot less vulnerable, but lack flexibility. When it comes to any sort of CMS such as WordPress, you need to make sure that security is addressed. What I’ll say is that most of the existing websites I’ve worked on for customers had little or no security – not even basic best practices – so I know from what I’ve seen with my own eyes that most web designers are not addressing security, and most customers don’t realize they should ask.
Here are just a few very basic tips for a small business owner to use a guideline in talking to your web designer:

What is the hosting provider’s track record on actual support when you need it
Use .htaccess to lock things down
Harden WordPress itself
Use non-standard usernames, with complex unique passwords
Have a process to keep all software and plugins updated
Delete, not just disable, any un-used plugins
Use only mainstream, well-known plugins from vendors that provide prompt corrective action
Ideally your relationship with your web designer will be one of partnership. Find out what they can do to reduce your risk profile, discourage hackers, and help you recover in the event it happens.
As a business owner, accept that you ‘own’ information security – service providers may carry out your wishes, but at the end of the day it’s always going to still be your responsibility in the eyes of the law, so consider that in your selection of a web design provider.

Those are just the very basics; there’s a whole lot more you can do, which I hinted at throughout this article. For the sake of my clients, my lips have to remain sealed about any sort of details.
Thanks for reading; I hope you have a great 2016! Be safe.

Google AdWords, SEO & Retargeting – THE TRIFECTA!

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

I put together a new video explaining how for many small businesses trying to figure out where to start, but not able to affording paying for 3 different services that can get pricey, I developed a special blend of all 3 together that gives a small business everything essential to get going.  What’s special about this is not the 3 services in and of themselves, although they’re all great, but rather it’s that I’m able to affordably price a combination of the three as a blended service.  This is not what most companies do, although I won’t be surprised to see others soon following suit.  My goal is to give new small businesses a way to get going with online marketing in a way they can afford.

Google AdWords starts bringing in new leads immediately
SEO & content marketing helps the business take control over their digital presence and be deliberate in how they grow their brand
Retargeting helps you be sure that the leads you may have spent money to get with AdWords aren’t lost, but rather you can continue to market to them over again!

Google AdWords vs SEO

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

I hear this a lot – which is better, Google AdWords (PPC) or SEO.  The answer is … YES!  As I explained in my recent post & video, most small businesses actually need both of them (and a little more).  Google AdWords is perfect for helping a new small business start getting some immediate in-bound leads, which is the #1 hurdle for a new business.  Well, it turns out that Google will practically give them to you on a silver platter — if you’re willing to pay, of course.  AdWords is a competitive bidding situation where you are basically paying to be listed in top slots on the screen, but your bid is put up against other businesses who also want a chunk of that business, so sometimes your ad will be shown, and sometimes others will be shown in those slots.  Overall, it’s a reliable way for a business to bring in new customers.  You just need to watch your numbers on the cost per click, and making sure you have a well-designed website that is designed to funnel visitors into contacting you.  This is the #1 place where businesses go wrong with AdWords – their website isn’t optimized for conversion.  If you’re going to do AdWords, it really pays (literally) to have your landing pages professionally designed.  Otherwise you may be wondering why you’re spending all that money on AdWords and not getting calls/emails.  The problem may not be PPC, it might be your website.
Now, SEO naturally accompanies PPC, but not in the old-school way of trying to create trillions of backlinks.  Google is now more interested in quality and relevance, as they should be, so as a business your #2 goal is to just focus on growing your online brand through deliberate strategies, and just make sure that “all roads lead back to Rome” so to speak, which is to say that you should be sure to properly leverage SEO onsite optimization and backlink structures to be sure that Google can clearly understand how your content (posts, articles, videos etc.) are related to what people are interested in.  Otherwise you’re just randomly throwing stuff out there and hoping it sticks.  In my mind, with the change in search engines, SEO is about optimizing your brand.  Although it has lots of technical components, from a business point of view you want to think about SEO as a strategy to grow your brand online.  It is a discipline which underlies everything else that you do, because it makes sure that everything is all tied together in a way that optimizes your brand online.  It isn’t about keywords and backlinks and all that.  It’s about getting your name and information about your services out there where people are looking.  It is “search engine optimization”, in the most literal sense of the words, but what I mean by it is a little different that traditional SEO.  It’s not about being clever.  It’s about being above-board and legitimate and trying to share things with people that are relevant.  Do that, and you’ll probably be pleased with the results.
Finally, retargeting.  I’m a big fan of Facebook retargeting (social media marketing), combined with PPC.  The reason is that if you’re going to spend the money on PPC to get them to your website, but maybe they get interrupted or distracted or something pulls them away from their computer, and they don’t end up contacting you, then you spent advertising dollars and got absolutely nothing in return.  What retargeting does is give your website visitor what’s called a pixel which is then used to continue to show them subsequent advertisements, since you know they have been to your website.  I won’t get into how it works, but what’s important to know for a small business is that a retargeting campaign should be used in combination with PPC because you can continue to remarket to those people who visited your website.  It’s not a question of whether to advertise on Google or Facebook.  If you want to bring in the customers, you start with Google AdWords since that’s where most purchasing intent is, and you follow it up with retargeting.  Now, there are other types of retargeting besides just Facebook, but I don’t want to get into that in detail here.  In most cases, Facebook is a great place to start with a local marketing retargeting campaign.
That’s it for the moment.  I just wanted to take a minute and explain a bit further the point and intention behind some of the ideas in my recent video.  By combining Goodle AdWords (PPC), SEO, and social media marketing (retargeting), you can implement a more comprehensive strategy about how you go about bringing in new leads online.
Traditional services for PPC management and SEO, with really anybody that sells them, are going to start at a bare minimum of $200/month each – and often much more.  So as you can see, trying to do both of them, plus social media marketing, is going to quickly be beyond the reach of most new small businesses that may not have the revenue stream yet to support that kind of marketing cost.  That’s why I created a blended service offering that pulls all 3 of them together so almost any small business can get started right away and start getting results while also taking steps to grow their online brand.  Whereas a typical SEO or PPC campaign might target multiple keywords, a small business doesn’t always need that to get started. My service approach is to zero in on one money-making service and start creating immediate results, and then expand to include more keywords and search phrases (topics) as your revenue grows.  Don’t try to be everything to everyone to start with.
I hope this was helpful!

Ideas For A Dynamic Search Engine Optimization Strategy

Search engine optimization involves improving the chances of a website being seen in search engine results. This is great for owners of businesses and websites, because more visitors means more money. The advice you are about to read over is going to assist you in search engine optimization.

Pay-per-click approaches can be used in affiliate marketing in a really effective way. This service is easy to provide, but the pay can be modest. Even with modest pay though, revenues can build quickly.

Anchor Text

Make sure you select relevant keywords to use in your anchor text when posting an internal link. Do not just put "click here" because this will not do anything for SEO. Spiders focus on keywords, so if you pick out the most appropriate keywords for your content, they will count your anchor text towards your overall relevancy.

If you are making an effort in search engine optimization, each page on your site should incorporate meta-description tags. These tags are worth the t

The Death of Google Plus?

by Eric Erickson @ Outside Raleigh

G+ – Changes coming – Oh Good! Seriously, sometimes I get SO disgusted with Google pretty much forcing everyone down their path – and then completely changing path, not finishing the path, or otherwise making all your efforts learning their “vision” completely wasted. I do have to admit, G+ has never been my favorite thing to deal with. It was almost implemented like when Microsoft brought their not ready for primetime web browser, Internet Explorer, to the party with Netscape so many years ago. It wasn’t that it was bad, just so many issues, so much incompatibility, the quirks…  No, actually it WAS bad. But that’s another story.  You just can’t muscle into the room, declare you’re here, and then… Read the rest

Want Great Ideas About Search Engine Optimization? Look Here!

by condormarketing @ Condor Marketing SEO

Taking the time to optimize your website for the search engines can pay off by dramatically increasing your traffic. However, in order to be successful, you need to avoid common SEO pitfalls. The tips in the following article will show you the fastest and most efficient techniques you can use to get your website noticed by the big search engines.

A few short articles is better than one long one. Long pages don't carry as much weight with the search engines as short ones do. Visitors are also not likely to read an article in its entirety if it is overly long.

Take your keywords and research all the different variations and misspellings of them and include them in the meta-tag section of your webpage. This meta-tag data will be read by search engines and as a result, your website to appear in a larger array of search results. As an example, if "traveling" is your keyword, include "traveling" in addition to the European spelling of "travelling."

5 Hacks to use Social Selling to Push Buyers Down your Sales Funnel

by Nick Rojas @ Phoenix SEO Consultants – Search Engine Optimization Gilbert

Jump starting a sales funnel provides a challenge even to established businesses. People are no longer responsive to traditional advertising and instead, demand content. Digital marketing and content marketing especially have given people the desire for strong brand presence. Consumers want to see why your brand is high quality; not just take an advertisement’s word for granted. It’s your job to negotiate your message with consumers and move them down your sales funnel. This process involves everything from social media to email marketing. Negotiation, this kind of marketing strategy, is no easy task, but luckily with a little content marketing […]

Video Marketing How-To: Creating Effective Demo Videos

Video Marketing How-To: Creating Effective Demo Videos

Welcome to another episode of Video Marketing How-To! This week we’re going to talk about product demo videos – how to create one that’s engaging, informative, and drives conversions!

First off, I want to take a minute and discuss the difference between an explainer video, and a demo video. Explainer videos are great for showcasing how your solution solves a problem at a high level. They don’t have to have any real imagery of your product or service to be valuable.
Demo videos on the other hand should teach prospects or customers how to accomplish something with your product. Keep in mind, this is content that your prospects consume on their own before getting a demo from sales – it’s not a 1 hour demo caught on camera, but a quick overview of one or more of your features.
Now let’s look at length – demo videos aren’t generally considered top-of-funnel content so you can go a bit longer on length, but don’t bite off more than your viewers can chew. Keep your demo videos to the point, walk viewers through one action, and do it succinctly.
Next up is formatting – if you’re going to be producing multiple demo videos, try to structure them the same way. Chances are if you have built a complex product, your viewers will be watching multiple videos to fully understand how your system works, so having a cohesive structure means viewers know what to expect.
Finally, distribution. Demo videos tend to be more mid-funnel content as they’re designed to educate trial users or existing customers on how to use your product. Having them on your website is a must, but it’s not a bad idea to have them on YouTube as well. Many users search YouTube for information on products, and having short demo videos that show prospects how to use your product is always a good idea.
I hope you learned a thing or two about building a successful demo video. Check out these full-length examples from Salesforce, Taulia, inContact and Vidyard, Remember – if there’s a topic you would like us to cover on Video Marketing How-To, please let us know in the comments! See you in a few weeks for another episode!

Bad SEO Signs

by Eric @ Lizardwebs

Bad Website SEO Optimization methods So, you say you just have WAY too many visitors – crushing your webserver and using up all your bandwidth? Put a few of these really UNHELPFUL tips into play and just watch your rankings tank. Might not happen immediately, but it will eventually. Just watch your site bomb right OFF the SERPs! And it will take forever to get that rank back! Good stuff. Multiple Doorways – This technique involves using several pages that are optimized specifically for search engine submission. These pages usually are nothing more than huge meta tags, lots of tags containing all the search terms, text that makes almost no sense but is loaded with the search terms. Pages like these will usually then either have a javascript redirect or a page refresh that takes you to another page that wouldn’t rank very well or get much traffic on it’s own merits. If you have a site that has index1.html, index2.html, index3.html, etc, this is probably the case. This is NOT to say that you can’t have multiple versions of your page for tracking purposes. If you submit a website to Google and the URL you give is googleindex.html and you are tracking your hits via googleindex.html hits, then you are not abusing the system. Just make sure your page contains relevant information. There are other ways of examining where your hits come from, but this can be acceptable. Script Cheats/Cloaking – also referred to as “Stealth” or “cloaking” – This technique looks at the incoming User Agent most of the time and prepares specifically created text for that search engine spider. Legitimate script techniques were heavily used when browsers were not supporting much in the way of standards several years ago. They are still used to maintain backwards compliance and to provide workarounds on certain browsers in some cases. However, if I subvert that concept to look for the “googlebot” user agent and then start feeding out a bunch of search engine spam to get my rankings boosted, that is considered a script cheat. Normally you can spot this sham by the content that is shown on the search engine brief when a search is done and then get to the site and the content isn’t even close. I lost my very high ranking once to a site that had done just that. They were selling insurance and had included my company URL in the spider spam. It included a ton of terms that had nothing to do with my company, it’s products, or anything else. They were simply usurping the power of the name and taking legitimate customers from my site by posing as an affiliated partner – which they weren’t. Being part of or creating your OWN Link Farms – These are still ranked highly by several search engines much to my disgust. These pages are nothing more than a HUGE collection of links that provide no useful information, but have a ton of links with a […]

Raleigh Startups Specialized Marketing Needs

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

Raleigh startups, and North Carolina startups in general, have specialized digital marketing needs that can be a bit different than those of many traditional brick and mortar businesses.  We’re here to walk with you through the evolving needs your startup will have.  To understand what makes startups different in regard to what they often need in the way of services such as search engine optimization (SEO), web design, and so forth, a bit of brief discussion about the startup life cycle is needed. 
What’s a Startup
The term startup generally refers to a venture capital funded business that has a strategic business plan of sufficient potential ROI that investors have supplied the money that the company needs in order to develop a new product or capability that isn’t in the market yet.  In many cases it’s fully expected that the startup won’t be profitable for some time because they have to first develop their new product or service and then bring it to market.  Let’s dig a little deeper into that.
Early Lifecycle of Raleigh Startups
Startups developing a new business to business service will often engage in a process of organically identifying suitable prospects and contacting them in order to solicit their involvement as beta testers during the development cycle.  You likely won’t be staffed or organized internally just yet to support a large onset of customers, because you’re in development mode instead of production.  Your primary concern will be ensuring that when you reach out to a prospect, whether in Raleigh or elsewhere, that what that prospect sees online conveys that you are organized, looking at the big picture, and taking what you are doing seriously. 
Web Design for North Carolina Startups
Raleigh startups needs a web presence which conveys that you have something worth taking a closer look at.  This requires not only the right type of content and messaging on the website, but also a visual style that says “we have something special.”  To convey that, some startups may want to venture away from conventional approaches to web design and be deliberately different.  Others may have a quicker cycle and prefer to build their website to support runtime operations and visitor conversion.  I’ll try to explain the difference.
A traditional business providing home services, such as a plumber, for example, may benefit from well-studied designs based on neuroscience conversion principles in order to achieve the highest probability of converting a website visitor into a customer.  This is done through conversion-oriented design that looks at the composition of the page to ensure certain things are in the right places and that key things aren’t missing.  Color and messaging are very important as well.  The idea is to create subliminal trust and funnel your visitor into taking a specific action.
In contrast, Raleigh startups may have a different spin on this at this point in the life cycle of their business.  The startup often wants to be seen as a potential market disruptor with something new and different to offer.  Something noteworthy and compelling.  To accomplish that, they must strike a balance between standing out and maintaining a corporate image that says they have their act together.  The design challenge is to convey their essence and messaging in a powerful way so that prospects imagine themselves benefit from the product while potential investors alike find themselves wondering, “What if?” and envision the possibilities.
SEO Foundation
From the perspective of SEO, a strong brand presence should be established early so that when people search for the business by name, they will hopefully see a lot of results about you on page one.  This serves several purposes.  First, it will allow the various digital assets involved to begin earning trust and authority in search engines.  The authority of these properties will be increasingly important to the startup down the road if they plan to move into the mode of delivering their service to the general market.  Further, it will also ensure that key digital properties are claimed so that they aren’t hijacked by either a competitor or someone else hoping to siphon off some of the potential website traffic.  By properly creating and linking essential properties through specific methods, the startup can avoid some potential problems, eliminate entity ambiguity, and create trust with search engines.  I think of these early steps as the most critical foundation of SEO for a business.
Brand Search Feasibility
Before your business is instantiated, you may want to analyze the online search feasibility of your proposed brand and ensure that you aren’t going to be competing to be found for your own brand name against other established, high-authority websites whose branding may be similar enough to create problems for you.  You can find a high level view of that process on this page.
Why does this matter?  Think about very famous shoe brands named after the gods of Greek mythology.  Now, imagine that their main brand word is part of your company name.  Even though you may not be competing with them on products or services, you may very well be competing with them to be on page one of search results for your own brand name, as I’ll explain next.
For example, let’s say your business is called ‘Brand Marketing’ because you’re in the marketing business.  However, there’s a company simply called ‘Brand’ and they happen to have a marketing department of their own, and they’ve invested in SEO to be sure their marketing department is getting top billing for the search phrase ‘brand marketing.’  You’re competing with them in search engines even though you might not be competing with them for customers.  A preliminary competition analysis can help you understand the difficulty of being recognized in Google for your own brand.  Being recognized in Google search will cost less and be significantly faster if you select a brand name with good SEO prospects. 
SEO for Products and Services
An on-going SEO campaign may or may not be called for at this early stage, depending on when the business needs organic search engine traffic to sustain operations.  It’s a question of timing since such campaigns often require anywhere from four to twelve months according to Google, though very competitive industries may require even longer than that.  Because the product or business service itself is likely still in development, it may not be possible to fully map out all of the taxonomies and naming conventions needed for SEO at this point if you have not finalized certain details relating to the product.  For example, if the product or service has a special name they want to rank for, that isn’t possible until the product name is nailed down.  Instead, you’ll have to focus on generic search terms to start creating some authority and come back to product naming later.  The sooner in the product lifecycle that the name can be nailed down, the sooner that more specialized SEO work for Raleigh startups can begin.
Paid Search Advertising
Paid search, such as Google AdWords, can potentially play a role in the early lifecycle of Raleigh startups.  This would potentially come into play if the startup is having difficulty identifying and reaching out to beta partners.  A possible solution is to use paid ads to get traffic to the website.  In such case, it is critical that the website landing page be designed in such a way as to maximize the probability of a contact request via the website.

The Evolution of SEO and Digital Marketing

by webmaster @ Lizardwebs

Summer is here and so is the national holiday that brings Americans together like no other, Independence Day, the 4th of July. Everyday billions of people celebrate the world wide web without even knowing it. After more than 20 years in the digital industry we’ve seen the growth of digital marketing first-hand and there’s really only one thing we can say for certain: to the internet and beyond! Digital Evolution: Let’s Reflect With the advent of Gutenberg’s printing press in Europe in 1450, the ability to mass-communicate and sell gained such epic momentum that it’s barely slowed down in over 500 years. Magazines first emerged in the 1730s, radio advertising in 1922 and then in 1941, the world’s first ever ad was for Bulova watches and was broadcast on American screens in one of the most groundbreaking moments in marketing history. When Connection Changed our World In 1965, a computer in Massachusetts connected with another in California via dial-up and in 1973 the first hand-held mobile phone call was made by Martin Cooper (the former Motorola vice president). But it wasn’t until the early 1980s when the first commercially available desktop PCs (The Programma 101, produced by the Italian company Olivetti) started filtering into homes, that a tidal wave of new digital marketing possibilities crashed onto the scene. Digital Moves Incredibly Fast-By the time LizardWebs Launched in 1997: ● Domain Name System (DNS) institutes the .host names we are now familiar with such as .com, .gov., .edu, etc. ● Symbolics Computer Corp., originally a manufacturer of single-user computers and software, becomes the very first registered domain name. ● Sir Tim Berners-Lee, a graduate of Oxford University and a computer scientist, invents the world wide web. ● The world wide web is open for business. ● The White House, as well as the United Nations, are now online, along with 600 other websites. ● Burgeoning eCommerce begins. Today’s eGiants, like Amazon.com and eBay go live. ● The “browser war” begins and Microsoft and Netscape battle it out. Since Our Launch ● Google Got Smarter ● SEO Grew Up ● Digital PR Became Incredibly Powerful ● Social Media Keeps Us Connected ● Marketing Became Less Aggressive Google Got Smarter Early search engines like Yahoo!, InfoSeek, AltaVista, Lycos and WebCrawler made significant strides in the digital evolution of search but let’s be honest, the golden years didn’t start until Google launched in 1998. With the birth of today’s most popular search engine and its development of tools like AdWords in 2000 and content targeting services in 2003, everything changed online. In 2004, search engines started using advanced ranking algorithms and browsing online became more personal. The impact this had on business is immense. Being able to target browsers and develop strategies based on search patterns led to a whole new way of selling and communicating. These days a Googlebot crawls and indexes trillions of pages on the web and makes the most relevant ones instantly accessible via traditional or voice search. A brand […]

Cleaning Your Site – What you should be looking at

by webmaster @ Lizardwebs

So, most of you probably don’t know much about what goes into doing websites directly or how we go about optimizing them for search or such. Then again, if you’re showing up HERE, maybe you do. Regardless, I’ve been on the creation side of the web for over 20 years now. I’ve seen good, bad and everything in between. I have turned OUT good, bad and everything in between in that time period LOL – we all start somewhere.  We don’t turn out bad intentionally, but at different times, creativity may have run a little shy, time may have run a little shy – or a client’s BUDGET may have run a little shy. You don’t build the Taj Mahal with a doublewide budget – and we’ve seen a lot of double and even “single-wide” budget clients in the last 20 years. That said, there are certain things that need to be done.  There are certain tenets to a good website construction – for RANKING. And what I see out of a LOT of shops – and, unfortunately, devs that are out there, is NOTHING but “pretty pictures” in the site.  It drives me absolutely crazy. A well-done site will have a nice combination of design (or at least a catchy design), good and reasonably thorough content, and a solid structure. In a well-designed site, these images will ALSO load quickly and will be appropriate to the project. We’re going to cover these topics across at least a couple of articles. Bad Website Structure – Everywhere I’ve got one “under the knife” now that was done by an UpWork person for one of my clients. The potential client asked me back in December if I could help him. I really didn’t have time, so he pressed on with his Upwork contractor. Who turned out a nightmarish site as far as being rankable. Looks great on the surface, but so many things were done wrong. Now we’re working on SEO for him as of last month. While we’ve made progress with them, it really is going to require some remedial work. It honestly is such a mess that I’m not sure if I’ll be able to fix it without rebuilding it elsewhere and moving content across. We just took on another project. The guy has done great work – but as I feared, he spent his time on pretty pictures. It’s going to look GREAT – except I guarantee it won’t ever be found – unless I go back and do a whole LOT of retrofitting.  And I’m going through it and getting more and more irritable. Pretty site – it really is. But several poor choices were made. A bad choice here or there is not the end of the site, but more than a few makes ranking any website harder than it should be.  When you put pretty over SEO, you likely you will end up with a client down the road asking “WHY is this site not ranking? It’s so pretty!” Now, bearing in […]

Search engine optimization, or SEO, is an effective method in boosting your website above your competitors. In order to be successful, you need some tricks up your sleeve. Here you can find the best and worst methods.

SEO Project Management Considerations – Part 2

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

This is Part 2 in a series about SEO project management.  If you missed Part 1, you can find it here.
SEO Strategy
My intent with this section is not to articulate any sort of one-size-fits-all SEO strategy, because such a thing simply doesn’t exist in any actionable form, but, rather, to explain some of the associated issues that are going to affect which project management methodologies are used and how they’re applied.  You’ve probably seen ads where marketing companies say they’ll provide SEO services for $200 per month.  Having reviewed many such services myself, I can say that, at this price point, what you’re usually going to get is a pre-formulated package of specific items like X number of blog posts, articles, and so forth, which are all done the same way for each and ever client.  In the case where a business may be close to the tipping point in ranking, it is possible that such a formulaic approach might be all they need to tip the scales in their favor.  In my mind, that’s really just a nailed-down business process rather than a strategy, because a strategy to achieve a particular result has to be specific to that result.  If it’s generic, then I consider it to be a conceptual approach – not an actual strategy.  It also doesn’t meet the industry definition of a project.
In most moderately competitive industries, the people that I encounter who’ve tried such offerings generally didn’t get the results they hoped for.  This could be because they bought SEO services rather than SEO solutions.  In other words, they paid someone to come do some plumbing and carpentry, but not to actually build them a house.  Unfortunately, customers really don’t have any way of knowing whether what’s being proposed by a potential provider is going to work or not. How is a customer to tell whether the technical lingo in fancy looking Power Point presentations represents an actual bona fide SEO solution that’s going to create results, or just a bunch of paid hours keeping someone busy?  Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this which is why it’s important to select real business partners who have a vested interest in your long-term success.  Let’s dig into some nuances of SEO strategy a bit further.  
To begin, boiler-plate programs may not meet the commonly-held definition of a project since you are simply paying someone to provide a predefined commodity service that they sell the exact same way to anyone that asks.  Within the field of project management, we refer to this as manufacturing since you’re simply following an existing process that you do the same way each time. Is your company and situation exactly the same as everyone else’s?  The question to ask yourself is whether you expect to beat a medium to high level of competition with a low-dollar service that does the same thing for everyone. I am not, by any stretch, disparaging this approach.  In the right situations, boiler-plate services can achieve results.  They may even create a good foundation on top of which more advanced services can be built.  You just have to be careful in setting your expectations based on the level of competition and the degree to which the approach has been customized for your particular business.  In moderate to high competition situations, a custom SEO approach will almost always be needed.
When you get right down to it, the goal of SEO is to help a website to achieve organic rank in search engines so that you get more traffic to your website, which leads to more customers and more revenue for your business.  As a business owner, that’s the result you’re after. If that’s the case, why do many companies sell standard list of pre-defined services?  Because people keep buying it, hoping that it will work.  Whether their service works or not, a single month’s payment covers their cost of having acquired you as a customer, so they come out ahead whether you keep paying them or not.  When your business model is mass-production, your focus is different than when you cater to a small number of clients determined to grow their business successfully. As an SEO service provider, when you are working with such clients in your local area, you need to concern yourself with establishing a reputation for quality.  
An SEO strategy is not simply developing a standard business process and using it the same way for everyone, knowing that it’s going to produce variable results for different clients since their situations are different.  A strategy requires looking at what it’s really going to take to rank a given website based on the competition and, at a high level, mapping out the pieces involved.  Several hours are needed to perform such an assessment.  Due to the rapid evolution of ranking algorithms and the resulting adaptations made by SEO experts, any SEO strategy should be understood to be conceptual and that changes will be made over the course of the project.
Insofar as what project management methodologies to apply, traditional waterfall models that try to map the whole out from start to finish may lack the flexibility required for moderate to high level competition situations where the effort can span several months or longer and require adjustments at each step.  At minimum, you’d be facing the high probably that two particular risks are going to manifest at any time without notice.  These are search engine algorithm changes and additional actions taken by competitors.  More iterative project management approaches should be considered.
Timeline and Milestones
Assuming that you aren’t simply following a manufacturing blue-print which follows a rote schedule, SEO is going to occur over a period of phases during which you will see website rankings fluctuate greatly.  A process called the “Google dance” often takes 2-3 weeks for things to occur, during which time you will almost always see your website rank drop initially – sometimes quite dramatically – and then fluctuate for a short period of time.  This is completely normal, is no cause for alarm, and can take a month or longer at times.  After this period, if your SEO was successful, your website will return to a higher position than it was before.  Your SEO activities should be organized around these cycles.
While the role of milestones in a more agile project management framework is a bit different than in a waterfall approach, there will almost always be certain things that need to be done early.  It’s quite likely this will include such things as on-site website optimization, social media profile creation and optimization, and other such fairly standard activities that might need to be performed prior to moving on to content marketing and other activities, depending on your SEO expert’s analysis and recommendations.  
In SEO, we are trying to woo Google to like our website.  Like any romance, sometimes it requires more work and determination than you expected, and we aren’t in control of the timing. We have to take things as they come and be fluid.  This can present a challenge in asset allocation for larger SEO firms that follow an IT governance structure such as the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and want to perform demand management.  Resource scheduling is difficult when you don’t know when the next round of activity will need to commence.
Enter the SEO Expert
The role of your SEO expert is to guide you through these shark-infested waters to help you get your website ranked in the way that hopefully results in great long term results.  This requires an intuitive understanding of SEO, an ability to assess risk, the application of technical skills, and the ability to keep things organized and on-track.  Where the average lay-person will go wrong is mistakenly thinking the actual application of technical skills are the difficult part of SEO.  In fact, once you know those things, they’re the easy part.  
You are paying a real SEO expert for knowing what’s actually going to work, and for having the kind of understanding needed to adapt as required throughout the course of the campaign. In practice, what a real SEO expert does may appear on the surface to be very similar to what a low-dollar provider might have done.  For example, both might perform some content marketing such as writing blog posts as part of the engagement.  The difference lays in the nuances of both how and when the techniques are applied and how it’s all knitted together.  You may end up with just a bunch of digital tidbits floating in cyberspace, or you may get a well-orchestrated cohesive framework unique to your business that shows Google that you’re the real deal. 
With Google’s algorithmic updates happening on such a constant basis now, everything that you think you know is subject to change without notice.  On any given day, you may be waking up to an entirely new set of rules.  The SEO expert is on top of these changes and will make adjustments as needed based on knowledge that isn’t publicly available.
Project Deliverables
People want to know what they’re going to actually get.  This is just human nature, and it’s the reason that standardized services are so easily sold. They readily cater to the basic human desire to eliminate uncertainty.  It seems more of a “sure thing” when you’re told that you’re going to get A, B and C, and you can cancel at any time.  I take the view, though, that’s it’s crucial to be crystal clear that the one and only primary deliverable of an SEO project is an improved search engine rank, and other secondarily deliverables may be provided as needed over the course of the project.  Such secondary deliverables may include the creation or optimization of such things as:

Social media profiles
Social engagement campaigns
Primary business websites
Images
Videos
eBooks and other digital content

Every project is unique; no two clients need exactly the same thing.   The thing about these secondary deliverables is that they may well change over the course of the project, and they should not be recorded as obligations.  Note that this will be in direct contradiction to the approach taken by firms that take a mass-production approach.  
This is the crucial difference between generic SEO that gives everyone the same thing and a customized SEO plan.  With a customized SEO plan, the focus is on achieving rank – not checking off boxes for doing work and hoping maybe it helps boost rank.  Secondary deliverables are going to be a natural result of the SEO process, but they should not be its focus.  Trying to nail them down in advance and put them into a contract is setting both the customer and the SEO agency up for serious heartburn when the dynamic changing environment necessitates a shift in the approach or timing.  This is a very realistic scenario that is best avoided by letting your customer know up front that while you may advise them on your activities over the course of the project, no specific secondary deliverables are guaranteed to be provided because your goal is to help increase their rank, not to create digital artifacts for their own sake.  The right customer will understand this and value having a professional in their corner with the know-how to make that happen.  
It really comes down to whether the customer is focused on an improved website ranking and trusts you to do what’s needed, or whether they’re more concerned about secondary deliverables that may not lead to increased ranking if they’re set in stone.  Unfortunately, many customers will have had prior experiences with the second scenario and thus have it in their minds that’s what they need to ask for simply because it’s all that they know.  Their prior experience shapes what they think working with an SEO professional should look like.  Unfortunately, that way of thinking will undermine their success so the SEO provider may need to re-educate their customer prior to beginning work.
This concludes part 2 in this series about SEO project management that will be continued.

What To Remember About Search Engine Optimization

by condormarketing @ Condor Marketing SEO

Do you need help getting visitors to your site? Perhaps search engine optimization would help you out. Search engines look for things on websites and follow algorithms. This article is going to go over what can be done for you to do better with search engines.

Have a few short articles instead of longer ones to keep your rank high. Longer pages are not as well weighted by search engines. Additionally, many viewers won't bother reading a whole article if it is too long.

In order to use search engine optimization to increase your visibility, your website must be well coded. Search engines are not humans and their spiders will not make exceptions for inadequate code. If your site's Flash content does not include a text-only description or tags, it cannot be indexed by spiders.

When you use SEO techniques to set up a web page, don't think extra advertising boosts search engine ranking. It brings in new traffic, but doesn't affect rank.

Good search engine optimization relies on keyword

PageRank – Huh?

by Eric @ Lizardwebs

UPDATE 2016-09-09: What WAS PageRank? PageRank was an integral part of SEO for many years. Read on to learn more about what it WAS, but its time has now passed.  We haven’t really counted on it now for a couple years – quite a while.  Most SEOs refer to rankings from Majestic.com or AHrefs.com or Moz.com. Google still has an internal mechanism for determining how much love they have for your site, but it is no longer shared in ANY fashion with the public. When you start talking to your SEO company, all those terms… What the heck is offsite? What is onsite? What is this and that? And then, of course, what is PageRank? Our friends over at Wikipedia have it something along these lines… PageRank is a link evaluation algorithm, named after Larry Page and used by the Google web-search engine, that designates a numeric weighting to each component of a hyperlinked group of files, like the World Wide Web, together with the purpose of “measuring” its relative significance inside of the set. The formula may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references. The numerical weight that it assigns for any given element E is denoted by PR (E and known as the PageRank of E). PageRank is not Google’s only formula that establishes positions in serp’s, but simply one of several elements utilized to establish ranking sites in search results pages for any specific search. Find out more at their site – PageRank Explained In short, if you didn’t follow all of that, it’s a system named after Larry Page (one of the Google founders) to help decide just how important your website actually is based on the content, links and other various factors specific to your website. Higher is better. The rankings go from N/A to 10. It is usually referred to as simply “PR” – not to be confused with “public relations” type PR. Quick PR Ranking Breakdown N/A: Google has no clue who the heck you are. If you have been around for a while, it really doesn’t like your content – scraped or just nothing of any real note. If you’re just starting a website, this is normal. PR 0: Google acknowledges your existence, but doesn’t see much value yet, but it has some faith in you. Still not a desired ranking. PR 1: Now you’re getting somewhere. You have content and some value in Google’s eyes. You’re not setting the world on fire, but you have relevance. PR 2: Okay, not shabby. Google likes you. You’ve got some decent content. PR 3: Good for a local website – much like the ones that we create. You’ve got content that is good, and you’ve got some clout. With a PR 3 site, you can usually launch a page and get pretty quick love from Google on it. PR 4: Now you’ve got some heat. PR 4 and up is pretty powerful medicine if you’re doing either backlinking or […]

How to Dominate Local SEO

by webmaster @ Lizardwebs

Investing in local SEO is crucial as it helps reach potential consumers. Businesses, especially startups should start by marketing themselves locally before entering the any type of larger market. Controlling the most nearby locations gives companies the ability to get the most bang for the buck right out of the gate.  Shorter trips, less time spent traveling to and fro OR making your local brick and mortar known to your neighbors – regardless of your business model / needs, local SEO is almost always going to be your best first step. Hire a local SEO expert To get excellent results, it’s a whole lot more efficient to hire an expert to do it for you.  Short of spending weeks/months, even YEARS learning all the ins and outs of SEO, just get someone to do the job.  While SEO is not a mind-numbing, dark magic kind of thing, most people will be MUCH better off sticking to making their business operations successful and leaving the internet marketing to companies that do it all the time. Just like so many other things in business, yes, if you spent a lot of time learning one or another aspect of it, you could do it yourself. The pinch comes when you realize that in order to do what an expert can do in an hour will require considerably MORE time if you do it yourself.  For the same reason we have a “lawn guy”, most companies are better off with their own “SEO guy” (or gal). They have all the knowledge and tools to do it quickly and efficiently.  Successful local SEO requires proper analyzing and research when choosing the strategies to implement. Experts know how to go about these processes so as to achieve a good ranking on the search engine results. Some of the important parts of SEO – be it local or even a large global campaign include: Keyword research Keywords play an enormous role when it comes to search engine ranking. All the content you post on the website should contain certain keywords. The company you hire will do research and come up with keywords that will make your website more discoverable. They will also research on the keyword density that will be used in blogs and articles for your business. Link building Building links to a website is another strategy that experts will use to help you to get high rankings. Bad link building can have a very negative impact on your website. This happens if links are made to wrong websites. An expert will help you come up with quality links to the right websites. User-friendly websites Users have to be able to access your website well both on computer and phone screens. Our Raleigh SEO experts will help you in designing your website so that it’s mobile friendly. This will give you an advantage since search engines especially Google tend to prefer websites that are mobile friendly. Social media Local SEO also uses the social media to build links to […]

Google Algorithms

by Eric @ Lizardwebs

Search Engine Algorithms Change – FREQUENTLY! Something to keep in mind – algorithms for ranking your site are always changing. What worked 5 years ago – even 5 months ago, may or may NOT still be viable. Like any professional thing, ongoing testing and learning are vital to any good SEO company. If your SEO person is relying on practices that USED to work – they may NOT be getting the best results – and may actually be tanking your site. We still see a lot of companies using bad SEO techniques. It’s not uncommon to see an algorithm change in Google or other search engines causing your site to shift many places in a short period of time. Some shifts are brief, but if your site goes down a few pages and just does NOT come back up, it’s time to try a different strategy – or SEO company. At a minimum, contact your SEO company to find out what’s going on and bring it to their attention. If they’re good, they already know that you’ve shifted and are working on it. If your site moves around a few places from week to week, that’s natural. Some sites though, we have to say, are so much stronger than competitors, that they generally do NOT shift out of first position. You know you’ve got something good going at that point! Normal variances in your Search Engine Rankings It is NOT uncommon to see specific rankings shift around from week to week – even day to day in particularly competitive markets and terms. We expect to see variances of a few spots in rankings. We see some pages drop 10 spots, but then another page on your site rises 11 positions for that same term – effectively swapping out positions on the SERPs.

SEO Project Management Considerations – Part 3

by Brian Dunn @ DunnTek | Raleigh SEO, Internet Marketing & Web Design

This is the third and final installment in this particular series about certain special considerations with SEO project management.  This isn’t intended to be a guide on how to perform SEO project management, since that would be quite a lengthy document.  Rather, my aim in this series is simply to shed light on certain areas that project managers used to working in other disciplines might want to consider, as well as to help business owners understand things that make SEO different from other types of Information Technology projects.  Without further ado, let’s begin.
SEO Project Management Model
As mentioned previously, a fairly standard set of activities will generally need to be performed at the start of any SEO project.  These activities include the identification of digital assets, an assortment of various on-page tasks, competition analysis, and early off-page tasks such as link clean-up, just to name a few.  Custom SEO agencies may apply their own secret sauce during this phase as well.  While the general nature of these activities will tend to be consistent within an agency in how they handle client SEO, the exact details and level of effort required may vary greatly from one project to the next. 
Once these baseline tasks are complete, the project will likely go through a series of progressive cycles until the desired results are achieved.  A project management methodology that supports this approach of iterative work through successive cycles is recommended in order to maintain flexibility and avoid a constant stream of change orders that would likely result from trying to hold to a traditional waterfall approach.  
SEO ROI
There are a lot of opinions and approaches to calculating the ROI of an SEO project.  Certainly, every project requires a clear and compelling reason why the business would invest money in it.  The bottom line is that SEO is not simply a marketing cost due to the fact that it potentially creates residual value in a way that other forms of marketing do not.  SEO is a strategic investment that a business owners makes to help ensure a regular flow of inbound customers that don’t depend on paid advertisements.  While beginning to realize the ROI may take anywhere from two months to a year or longer depending on your particular industry and location, this varies widely depending on the level of competition and the skill of your SEO.
Perhaps most importantly, SEO creates an exit-strategy for the business owner.  It has an incredible ability to transform a business that’s just getting by into a valuable target for corporate acquisition by a larger company.  Simply put, if you’re sitting at the top of the search results for things that generate revenue, someone’s likely to be interested if your business is for sale.  From such a perspective, the potential ROI is possibly much higher than when simply compared to alternative marketing strategies.
Project Communication
A communication plan is an important part of a project that details how communication is going to occur.  This is important in order to prevent a free-for-all of instant messaging, email, phone calls, and cellular text messages that may result not only in complete chaos and missed deadlines but also the potential loss of important project data.  A communication plan brings structure to how different types of communication will occur, both internally within the project team and with stakeholders, with the goal of ensuring that the project is successful.  In this instance, my particular focus is on certain things that can come into play during communication between the client and the SEO provider which must be considered.
Having managed projects of so many different types, one thing I’m certain of is that SEO is… different.  One thing you may encounter in an SEO project is that semi-technical people are very likely to try and understand things which are simply never going to make sense to them.  While that could be said for IT in general, what makes SEO a bit unique is that we deal with a lot of things that people are used to looking at constantly, and, being smart people, they will be quick to think they understand them – but they’ve never looked at any of those things from an SEO perspective. 
This can potentially lead to a lot of conversation because it arouses people’s curiosity when they suddenly discover that the online world that’s been right in front of them has immense depths of subtlety they never previously imagined.  Analytical people will be naturally inclined to want to get their heads around it, so to speak.  Creative people may suddenly find themselves having no end of ideas they want to contribute. For all of these reasons, business owners should decide up front whether they want to pay for their staff to have kind of this extra dialogue or simply let the SEO firm do their thing.
As an example, consider a scenario in which the project is moving into content marketing.  Suppose an appropriate piece of content can be sourced by the SEO for $50.  Creative staff employed by the client, however, want to hold additional meetings to discuss the content to be used, possibly create their own content, and then invariably have to conduct additional meetings to discuss changes required to make the content suitable for SEO purposes.  That type of dynamic creative process takes much longer, and the additional hours required are usually not going to be covered in a standard engagement.  As a result, the client needs to determine in advance whether a creative engagement is worth the cost and schedule risk, or whether they prefer to simply let the SEO procure an appropriate piece of content to keep the project on-target in regard to both time and money.  Neither approach is right or wrong; it’s a question of cost and preference, and it’s something that needs to be established during project inception to avoid any potential heartburn later.
Because SEO may take anywhere from three months to a year or longer, some type of regular contact is certainly needed to assure the customer that something meaningful is happening.  I caution, though, against the standard inclination to produce detailed activity reports with tons of detail.  If you go into too much detail, what may well happen is that when people read a report with a bunch of activities listed of things you did and digital documents or properties that you created, for example, people are going to try to look at those things online and try to understand both the individual activities as well as how they all fit together.  It’s human nature to do that.  Unfortunately, there’s a huge potential for them to end up feeling confused and frustrated for several different reasons. First, some of the things we do in SEO can be counter-intuitive or go against many common misconceptions.  Second, they simply lack the years of experience to understand the strategic approach behind why these things are done the way they are.  Unless you’re dealing with another actual expert, consider the level of detail that’s really going to be beneficial to the customer.  More is not always better.  Seek to provide meaningful indicators of progress while avoiding the inclusion of unnecessary data-points.  There is another reason to consider keeping reports at a high level, though.
A critical consideration for any SEO firm is intellectual property and trade secrets.  No one expects to walk into a major brand fast food restaurant and walk out with anything more than the vaguest understanding of their secret recipe, and SEO is no different.  Within the field of SEO, there is a great amount of highly specialized tradecraft that changes on a very frequent basis.  This tradecraft represents an SEO firm’s secret recipe in how they address the 200+ ranking factors. Accordingly, if you want anything more than a high-level report, don’t be surprised if you’re asked to execute a legal Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which attaches a hefty financial penalty for violating the terms of the agreement.  I prefer to avoid such a situation entirely and keep trade secrets and propriety business processes strictly on a need-to-know basis.  As long as you can deliver results, people will not only understand that you’ve got something special, but they’ll also appreciate the fact that you don’t take just anyone as a client.
Conclusion
SEO should be seen more as a capital investment than a marketing cost.  It can create residual value and lead to a possible exit-strategy for a small business owner looking to sell their business. An SEO project can meet the criteria to be considered a project according to industry definitions, depending on the approach taken by the SEO agency.  In selecting an SEO project management methodology, an SEO company should consider modern iterative approaches that will accommodate the dynamic nature of competitive SEO.  Finally, if you’re a business owner and need a Raleigh SEO company to help you get the potential additional inbound leads associated with having an improved organic search engine rank, and you’ve either tried other approaches that didn’t work or maybe you just want to get it right the first time, contact us so we can discuss your goals.
