When do you actually need to hire an SEO for your online business?

A recent research showed that many of the online business setups ignore SEO as it is considered to be unnecessary for the site’s ranking. This is one of the reasons for the declining rate of SEO as businesses do not use it and this lack of trust prevents them from hiring quality SEO experts or agencies to assist them in getting their sites optimized for the search engines.

Seeking help from an SEO expert or consultant can prove to be helpful at various stages of an online business. Let’s chart out a few strategies in an online business when you need to consult Denver SEO companies to achieve success.

Designing a new website:

For a matter of fact it is not necessary that you go ahead with designing a new website, let’s take an existing website for instance that you want to redesign. As we have already discussed you skip some of the SEO work as you consider it to be unimportant for your website. This can destroy the traffic flow to your website. Then how do you resolve it? Do not plan to get some basic SEO done by yourself and launch your site as it can be harmful when done by someone who has the least knowledge of what is to be done.

Though no one says it is wrong to get the basic redesign work done by yourself but do not climb an extra step ahead as it can ruin the entire thing. Redesign work usually involves bringing in a different kind of CMS, or including new pages which can be a disaster.

Some important tips for getting website redesign done from Colorado  web development company:

  • Optimization
  • Create a 301 redirect map
  • Perform content audit
  • Monitor response codes constantly on a regular basis
  • Crawl your site
  • Provide page title and H1 recommendations

New to Digital Marketing? Here is what Denver SEO can do for you.

If you are new to digital marketing, remember SEO and their contributions are not limited to creating H1, title & meta tags, but they can contribute even more. Both digital marketing and SEO have been evolving at the same pace.

SEO & digital marketing some important points to remember:

  • Include noindex tags in the right place
  • Integrating Google Webmaster tools
  • Optimizing Robots.txt
  • Integrating Google Analytics

Content Marketing:

They say there is no SEO as content marketing is replacing the so called SEO tactics to woo the customers online. But wait, of course content marketing  is the sole base of any forms of online business. The magic works success when both SEO & content marketing is integrated together. Check out how:

  • The right keywords to be included in an effective content is presented by an SEO expert
  • The user intention on searching any particular query is the most important phase of content marketing.
  • All SEO tactics and features should fall in place if the content marketing effort is to succeed.

There might be a time when there is no need of an SEO expert or consultant to get the SEO done as it might not deliver fruitful outcomes. But till then let us stick on to the traditional prospects of hiring a Colorado Search Engine Optimization company for success in online business.

Cool keyword density tool!

This is cool tool.

I found it on this website – http://www.webconfs.com

Check your keyword density with the Keyword Density Checker – Keyword Cloud Tool. This tool will gives you a visual display of the keywords on a site. All you have to do is type in a URL and you will see the text from the site displayed, with keywords with the highest density are in larger fonts. Pretty cool

More US Adults own a smartphone than a degree!

I thought this was an interesting headline because it shows the importance of mobile applications. Now not only do you need a website but  you need a website that looks good on mobile phones as well.

In the Article -  it stated that more Americans own Smartphones than hold a bachelor’s degree or speak another language in their homes (Pew Internet Project report)

A telephone survey was completed and  83% of people said that they owned a cellphone of  and 35% of the 2,277 U.S. adults questioned said that they owned a smartphone.

I can only see those number increasing in the future.Everyone who owned a smartphone was likely to use that phone to access the Internet. Nine in 10 smartphone owners (87%) used their phones as Internet portals — about 78% of them did so every day. Nearly a third of smartphone owners use their device as their primary Internet connection.

With so many people relying on their phones for both verbal and digital communication, it’s no wonder the researchers compiled to show respondents’ feelings toward their cellphones includes words like “necessary,” “convenient” and even, perhaps somewhat disturbingly, “love.”

Let BishopWebWorks, Inc help you develop a mobile website or even a mobile application. Since people “love” their phones a mobile website will hopefully make them :love” your busines as well.

Feeling the effects of Panda?

Feeling the effects of Panda? – We know we are!

At the end of February, 2011 Google had a major update that affected 12% of all websites. BishopWebWorks was in that 12% and we dropped in our keyword rankings considerably. We probably dropped about 10 -20 spots in the for some of our keywords. BUMMER! What can you do to avoid  dropping in your SEO rankings?

Google conducted qualitative research (they spoke with individuals and not just a big questionnaire) to find out what they considered to be low quality sites.Once they got those results Google was able to define low quality sites with actual factors that Google could measure. This gives Google a mathematical definition of low quality.

A few reasons for why Google might consider your site to be  “low quality”

A high % of duplicate or copied content.

  • A low amount of original content on a page or site.
  • A high % (or number) of pages with a low amount of original content.
  • A high amount of inappropriate (Ads do not match the search queries a page does well for) advertisements, especially high on the page.
  • Page content (and page title tag) do not match the search query
  • Unnatural language on a page including heavy-handed on-page SEO (‘over-optimization’ to use a common oxymoron). Unnatural overuse of a word on a page.
  • High bounce rate on page or site.
  • Low visit times on page or site.
  • Low % of users returning to a site.
  • Low clickthrough % from Google’s results pages (for page or site).
  • High % of boilerplate content (the same on every page).
  • Low or no quality inbound links to a page or site (by count or %).Low or no mentions or links to a page or site in social media and from other sites.

If any of these factors is relevant to Panda, it is unlikely that they will be so on their own.

Like all  SEO it is the sum of all of these that will add up tpgether and get you   ‘Panda points’ (and points do not mean prizes in this game). Panda points will be added up. Cross a threshold (the Panda Line) and all the pages on your site seem to be affected. This includes quality original pages being ranked well. Google have said that “low quality content on part of a site can impact a site’s ranking as a whole.”

Hopefully this helps and you can fight back against the Panda updates and get those high rankings and traffic back!
