The successful marketing of your products and services these days increasingly means use of the internet. This means that your website must obviously do a good and creative job of displaying your offerings. In today’s internet, it also means that your site needs to be noticed by search engines. Further, it needs to end as high as possible on search engines’ results lists. This is called Search Engine Optimization, or SEO.

If your product is well known and available nowhere else, customers will look for your site directly. If this is not the case, customers typically enter a search word or phrase into a search engine and then review the results. You need to be sure that customer queries on search engines return your site at or near the top of the results lists. Studies have shown that consumers rarely read beyond the first few pages of their search results. If you are not in this group, it is likely that your site won’t get the traffic.

It has been said that good SEO is as important as having well displayed great products and services. How do you improve the SEO on your site? Here are some hints.

Submit your site as a link to web directories and directly to the search engines. Any references and links in relevant articles, forums, press releases and blogs will also be beneficial.

Understand that it takes time for your ratings to improve. Search engines crawl across millions of web sites, logging keyword data for use when a customer enters a search query. This is not done at all websites simultaneously in real time. There is a delay. The process is ongoing, but it is not instantaneous.

Your site needs to be user friendly. That is, don’t overcomplicate it. This makes it easier for customers to navigate it once you have them but it also makes it more efficient for the search engines and will improve your ranking.

Be sure you frequently update your site. Search engines note updates and new features.

The proper selection and use of keywords throughout your site is important. This is one of the main things search engines seek.

Don’t forget to incorporate your keywords, wherever possible in other areas, not just the body text, of your site. These include the domain and sub-domain names, Meta tags, the page titles, and click-on descriptions.

Your link building efforts need to be relevant. Lots of links won’t help if the links themselves are not relevant to your site. Random links actually penalize your site’s search engine ratings.

As you increasingly rely on internet traffic, it is important to be sure your site ranks as high as possible on the search engines’ results. This requires an effort. It won’t happen by accident.
