Search engine optimization affects your content!
From images to text, SEO is a guideline that influences what is on your web pages, and why. At the end of the day, relevant content with relevant keywords are a major reason search engines bring people to your site. As search engines grow in complexity, original, relevant content has become more important than ever.
Allroads SEO involves content marketing, content generation, and web site optimization. It’s a core pillar of Search Engine Marketing, and when done properly can elevate your website into an industry authority on your product.
This can involve a regular blog that discusses topics relevant to your business. Articles that include target keywords can increase your visibility on search engine results pages. If your page is receiving regular content updates that are relevant to searches, you can place at the very top of organic searches. And just like that, without spending a dime on your pay-per-click ad campaign, you’ve given your business another opportunity to receive a potential customer.
Search engine optimization isn’t limited to articles with keywords. It targets all manner of searches, including image search, news search, video search, and more.
SEO and Local SEO
Search engine optimization, in broad terms, reaches out on the national and international level. However, Allroads also specializes in local SEO. When a potential customer performs a local search, content that has been local search engine optimized has a better chance of showing up on page one.
For example, if you’re looking for a restaurant serving Chinese food “near me”, a search engine will provide results for restaurants near your physical location. Even if you ad doesn’t appear at the top of the search page, there is a chance that a customer will scroll past those ads. If your restaurant is on page one in the local search, you just might be the place “near me” we’re looking for!
SEO affects site design and page optimization!
When Allroads takes on revamping a website, or designing a new one, design optimization is key. From making a mobile friendly site, to making sure the images we use are small in file size, the goal is to provide a fast and easy experience for your customer.
Site speed matters more than you might think. If your page takes 5 seconds to load, that’s four seconds where a customer might already be considering other options. The longer they wait to see your content, the less likely they are to give you their business.
At Allroads Digital Marketing, we don’t just focus on the look of the site. All of the animations, videos, sound, and menus don’t matter if the customer can’t see it. A site that looks great on desktop doesn’t mean anything for a mobile phone, unless it is properly optimized. You potentially lose out on mobile customers if it takes too long for their phones to navigate the site!
The importance of mobile search
In May 2015, mobile searches surpassed desktop searches, cementing the importance of mobile-friendly websites. The success of your business, more than ever, has to consider the customer who is on the go.
With our ever-growing ability to take the internet with us, we are all able to do research any time. We can look for sales anywhere, look for food nearby, order what we want right on the spot. If your site isn’t mobile friendly, you might be throwing away some vital business.
