Det meste af SEO-branchen er bagud

tilbage

I’m listening to a webinar right now on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and it’s got me irritated. The first metric discussed in the webinar is a discussion of hvor mange links en produceret strategi, og mængder af nøgleordene der blev implementeret i strategien.

UH.

Ingen diskussion af konverteringer. Ingen diskussion af relevans. Ingen diskussion af publikum. Ingen diskussion af forfremmelse. The discussion is simply how you can throw crap out there and try to get as many links as you can from any resource to drive up rank on some highly competitive keywords. Why don’t you just tattoo your logo on someone’s butt and throw it on Youtube? You’ll get plenty of irrelevant traffic that way, too… and it will probably cost less.

We’ve gotten so far in digital marketing yet we always fall back to crap tactics. The age-old strategy of flere øjenkugler continues to plague marketers. The myth is that you should be attracting everyone to your site… and within that group you’ll find someone. Over and over we see the strategy fail, yet marketers almost always go back to it. More eyeballs is synonymous with more business.

It’s not true. And it’s why companies should invest in indgående marketing over SEO.

I’m still amazed at the number of people that sell themselves SEO experts but don’t even care how online visitors are konverteret til kunder. Before they ever speak to the client, they look up the rankings, go find all the high volume keywords, and throw them an expensive quote on how they’re going to attack it. It’s a terrible approach and it’s completely backwards.

If you’re an established brand online, you allerede have data on where your business is coming from online. Notice I didn’t say hvor din Trafik kommer fra. jeg sagde hvor din virksomhed kommer fra. Det betyder, at gennemgang af din analytics til begivenheder, mål og konverteringer, der fører et udsyn til dit brand og får dem til at blive kunde.

Most of the traffic you get isn’t in that segment… so why would you care that you’re getting more visits from visitors who will never do business with you? Sure, some of those folks will share your information with other people – that’s a great thing. But that only happens when you share relevant indhold med det rigtige publikum.

If you’re working on search engine optimization, you need to start by identifying the keywords that drive results… then work backwards. Do you have intermediate ranking on relative keywords to the ones that are driving your sales? Start by optimizing those pages for those keywords so that your sales will increase. Typically, these are longer-tail and not that difficult to work on.

Now you’ll be driving business results rather than eyeballs and your SEO efforts will pay off.

    efter min mening er den bedste måde at identificere søgeord, der vil føre til resultater i seo, at starte med en lille google adwords-kampagne for at teste let søgeords ydeevne og hvordan folk bedre kan identificere min virksomhed online. Efter 1 måned kunne du have nok data til at optimere organiske resultater.

      Fantastisk metode, der virkelig fungerer godt! Nogle gange giver vores kunder os ikke den mulighed - men vi prøver ofte at tale dem ind i det! Du kan teste hundreder eller tusinder af kombinationer via PPC. Tak for at tilføje det!
