Search Engine Optimization (SEO)-Websites Design and Development
You need to understand the key concepts so you can improve your website’s visibility on search engines.
The Anatomy of SEO
Search engine optimization (or SEO) is the practice of trying to help your site appear nearer the top of search engine results when people look for the topics that your website covers. At the heart of SEO is the idea of working out which terms people are likely to enter into a search engine to find your site and then using these terms in the right places on your site to increase the chances that search engines will show a link to your site in their results.
In order to determine who comes first in the search results, search engines do not only look at what appears on your site. They also consider how many sites link to you (and how relevant those links are). For this reason, SEO is often split into two areas:
on-page techniques and off-page techniques-Websites Design and Development
On-page techniques are the methods you can use on your web pages to improve their rating in search engines. The main component of this is looking at keywords that people are likely to enter into a search engine if they wanted to find your site, and then including these in the text and HTML code for your site in order to help the search engines know that your site covers these topics.
Search engines rely very heavily on the text that is in your pages so it is important that the terms people are going to search for are in the text. There are seven essential places where you want your keywords to appear.
Ensuring that any images have appropriate text in the value of their alt attribute also helps search engines understand the content of images.
Off-Page Techniques-Websites Design and Development
Getting other sites to link to you is just as important as on-page techniques. Search engines help determine how to rank your site by looking at the number of other sites that link to yours.
They are particularly interested in sites whose content is related to yours. For example, if you were running a website that sold fish bait, then a link from a hairdresser is not likely to be considered as relevant as one from an angling community.
Search engines also look at the words between the opening <a> tag and closing </a> tag in the link. If the text in the link contains keywords (rather than just click here or your website address) it may be considered more relevant.
The words that appear in links to your site should also appear in the text of the page that the site links to.
In every page of your website, there are seven key places where keywords (the words people might search on to find your site) can appear in order to improve its findability.
How to Identify Keywords and Phrases?
Determining which keywords to use on your site can be one of the hardest tasks when you start to think about SEO. Here are six steps that will help you identify the right keywords and phrases for your site:
List down the words that someone might type into Google to find your site. Be sure to include the various topics, products or services your site is about.
Group the keywords into separate lists for the different sections or categories of your website.
There are several tools that let you enter your keywords and then they will suggest additional keywords you might like to consider, such as www.wordtracker.com or www.keyworddiscovery.com
It is very unlikely that your site will appear at the top of the search results for every keyword. This is especially true
for topics where there is a lot of competition. The more sites out there that have already been optimized for a given keyword, the harder it will be for you to rise up the search results when people search on that term. Some of the keyword research sites can tell you how many people have searched for a specific keyword to help you know how much competition those terms have.
Now you need to pick which keywords you will focus on. These should always be the ones that are most relevant to each section of your site.
Now that you have a refined list of keywords, you know which have the most competition, and which ones are most relevant, it is time to start picking which keywords you will use for each page. Pick 3-5 keywords or phrases that map to each page of your website and use these as the keywords for each page.
