SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is structuring the content on your website to provide favorable and competitive results when someone searches the Internet. Searches and SERPs: Searches are performed using the common search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo as well as Duck Duck Go). The results of a search are called SERPs, which stands for Search Engine Results Pages. These results come from Keywords entered and processed by the Search Engine. Keywords are sometimes singular, other times a String of words like a short sentence. Should you know the details of SEO? Website Owner As the Owner of a Website, you should have a general idea of the SEO on your site. Basic Keywords What Campaigns are in place or were ran in the past Who your Competition is With these basics, you can start to review where you are in the SERPs. One solid way to understand the health of SEO on your website is to put yourself in the position of your “unknown Customer”. This is the person you want to find your site prominently showing in their SERPs. You’ll need put yourself in their shoes and relinquish the knowledge you have as the Website Owner. Remember, they don’t know you yet, so don’t use your Website’s name/ URL as a consideration at this point. Take a breath, close your eyes and think of your yet to be, Customer. What are they thinking? What is their focus when doing a Search? Since we exclude your Company and Website’s name we also exclude your Product by title at this point. Let’s say you sell Telephones to Hospitals… what Keywords would a prospective Customer use when you expect them to find your site? We’re probably dealing with a person in the position of product acquisition. They likely care about quality and cost. Some logical Keyword examples would be (click to see in Google SERPs): buy telephone for hospital high quality phone for hospital purchase phones for hospital Clicking the image will show the rank positioning at the time of this article’s creation. It shows values that put the SERPs for these Keywords all within the first page of Google Results.
