5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Creating a Google My Business Listing

by James @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

With the evolving technologies of smart devices and the increasing number of local searches, it’s necessary to have your physical store stand out. And the easiest way to add authority to your local business is by getting it listed on Google My Business. But there are some optimization rules if you want it done properly. Let’s see what they are. Having Duplicate Business Name Some listings on Google My Business don’t become visible because they have common names. So, before you publish your listing, check whether your business shares a brand name with other organizations. If it does, then you must change it. This scenario can occur when businesses use keywords in their brand name hoping that it will improve their search engine visibility. It may help initially, but it will also affect your brandability in the long term. You Are Open 24/7 Another common mistake is claiming that you are open 24/7. Your website may have a chat operator or you may provide an overnight customer support. But it doesn’t mean that you are open 24/7. On GMB only counts your open hours as the time when you or a customer are able to pay you a visit. Providing the wrong hours violates Google’s guidelines and hampers your online visibility. You Have Not Given the Right Contact Number Your number can be incorrect and there can be various reasons behind it. You may have listed the wrong digits, meaning you’re directing visitors to someone else. It may also be because the contact information is seen as incorrect by Google even if it is yours. It generally happens when your number is not local. There are a good number of business listings that don’t show up on Google local search due to having numbers from other regions. Make sure that you use a local number on your Google My Business Listing. You Have Not Added Photos to Your Listing People search for your brand name on Google because they want to know more about your business. Images of your physical store make your business authentic and build trust with the users who are yet to visit your place. You can also add company logos and photos of your employees. You Are Not Being Reviewed Google will never penalize you if you don’t get reviews. But it will not reward you either. Therefore, start asking your clients to leave their feedback. […]

Where Do You See Your Skills Or Work In 5 Or 10 Years?

by @ All Forums

Recovering from knee replacement surgery has allowed me time to step back and more or less watch and read all the industry related news, articles, etc.

 

Most of you have been working in SEO, or web dev/design, or site ownership in any number of ways. Do you think you will be doing the same work in the future or retiring from it? 

 

I was chatting with a friend who said more of the long-timers are becoming teachers. I was thinking of going out to my local community and doing that.  

 

Do you like keeping up with all the advances and changes in tech or has it become a chore?

Forcing Http Not Www

by @ All Forums

I have a client that is indexed under http://domain.com. I think it looks quite nice in the listings like this. However, I can also see that the domain is accessible under www.domain.com, when running some spiders over the site.

 

I've never really thought of the difference of going to other way, forcing the webserver to redirect all www requests to http://.

 

Is there any reason why I would not want to do this and force instead www in requests?

WordPress for eCommerce? Your Checkpoints before Launching Your Store

by James @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

WordPress is the most popular CMS platform in the world. It’s vast selection of themes and easy-to-use admin panel have revolutionized the web world. Once regarded as a mere blogging tool, WordPress is now being used by big brands like CNN, BBC, TechCrunch, Mashable and many more. However, there is still a lot of debate regarding WordPress’s eligibility to run an eCommerce site. The answer will depend what the user needs. Some eCommerce businesses can be better managed using Opencart and Magento. For the rest, WordPress can work wonders. Before launching your online store, read on to determine if WordPress is right for you. Advantages Vert Easy Installation If you are a WordPress blogger, you probably already know how easy it is to install and set up. You don’t need to be a coder to manage a WordPress site. All it takes is just a few hours of study. No matter if it is product upload or sales monitoring, WordPress does it in just a few steps. Wide Range of Themes and Plug ins WordPress is known for its wide range of themes and plugins. By just using the right themes, you can turn even a basic blog site into a million-dollar online store. Plugins help customize your site as you want without writing a single code. You can also add different kinds of functionalities to your site by using plugins for completely free. Easy eCommerce Integration Another reason to use WordPress is its easy eCommerce integration with your existing site, be it a blog site or a lead generation site. For example, if you have a WordPress blog, you can turn it into an eCommerce store without having it redesigned. Just install a plugin like WooCommerce and you are on your way. Various Payment Gateways The user-friendliness of an eCommerce store depends a lot on the payment gateways that it supports. With WordPress, you don’t have to worry about that. It supports various payment gateways like PayPal, Google Checkout, Wordpay, ChronoPay, CCAvenue and more. Apart from this, WordPress also comes with manual payment options. Disadvantages Open Source Because most system codes are easily available online, there are a lot of questions regarding the security of your eCommerce store. Though there are solutions like Wordfence and Secury, they are third party plugins. This means there’s a risk of losing your important data. Regular Updates WordPress releases a lot of updates […]

Marketers Rate Their Conferences

by @ All Forums

It's no surprise that Pubcon rates as the number marketing conference. There are some interesting findings in this report however, especially when broken down by gender.

 

The most important factors for women are cost, speakers, and location.

For men, it's cost, networking and speakers.

 

My first thought is that location is my number one reason for NOT going to conferences anymore.  I hate Las Vegas.  It's across the country for me. So PubCon is out. So is MozCon, which is on the west coast. They were the only conferences in the top 5 rated that I recognized, but I'm also not technically a marketer.

 

The top topics are not in my ball park either. Even so, social media marketing is the number 1 topic. SEO is the last.

 

I personally always supported Brett and PubCon because he allowed related skills as topics for speakers, so that opened for me to give talks on conversions from the UX side. Me, Matt Bailey and Shari Thurow used to speak on SEO/IA/Conversions and were eventually shut out because UX was unwelcome. 

 

The article mentions cost for self employed folks like me. It is just not economically feasible for many of us. Unless there is an event near Phila, I don't bother to even investigate it.  Speakers are not paid and some conferences ask them to pay for their own time slots. 

 

The men also rated networking in the top 3. I liked seeing old friends but networking is not a personal strength. Besides, nobody wants to talk to the usability person, ha ha.

 

Can't wait for marketers to figure out that mobile design and accessibility compliance are what they need to save their jobs.  

 

New Report: How Marketers Feel About Conferences 

Want Your New Website to Rank within a Month? Here are the Tricks Performed by Top SEO Companies.

by Mandeep Saran @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

Acquiring a good position in the SERPs for a new website isn’t an easy task. The artificial intelligence used by Google and similar search engines is constantly getting smarter and more discerning. If you’re new in the market, then you’ll have to earn the trust of search engines which requires significant effort. You need to have a smart interface, regular blog posts, business listing submissions, social shares, keyword optimization and most importantly, you need a strategy to get backlinks from trusted and niche sources. Here is the best practice strategies used by the top SEO companies. Use Keywords with Low and Medium Search Volume Phrases that include one or two words are generally the most searched keywords. Getting ranked for such these keywords won’t be easy if you’re new due to competition from bigger companies for the same position. Instead, look to for the long phrase keywords that include three or more words and that don’t have as much competition. For example, “Toronto SEO” is a keyword with high search volume and high competition. Meanwhile, “Professional SEO Services in Toronto” is a medium search volume keyword with much less completion. Therefore, by using “Professional SEO Services in Toronto” you will not only get your website ranked quicker, but it’ll also get a boost to rank higher with the keyword “SEO Toronto”, as both the words SEO and Toronto are there in “Professional SEO Services in Toronto”. Use Keyword Modifiers If you’re facing difficulties ranking with the low and medium search volume keywords, then considering adding a keyword modifier. For example, if you are unable to get a good rank with “Professional SEO Services in Toronto”, you can use “Quality SEO Services in Toronto” or “Best SEO Services in Toronto”.  With this method, your website can get clicks and impressions for all those semantic keywords and also provide the chance to be shown in related search queries. Stay Away from Money Keywords For a new business, getting leads by targeting money keywords is tough as various other companies have been targeting the same keywords for years. Thus, the best way to get leads for a new business is to learn what information about your industry the targeted customers are searching for and build content specifically for that. Do search for “how to” keywords that you can use for content creation. Buy Traffic Above all, the ranking of your website depends heavily […]

Are You an Automaker? Discover What Digital Marketing Can Do for You

by Isaac Dumet @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

Marketing has always been a key factor for the automobile industry. Both television commercials and newspaper ads have traditionally greatly benefitted automakers for many years. But currently, automobile manufacturers are focusing more on digital media to reach potential customers. According to eMarketer reports, the majority of auto companies believe that investing in digital marketing is more useful than the traditional media. It’s why digital advertising spending by the auto industry rose to almost 22% in 2015. The scope of customization for different demographics is a major reason for this growth, with the credit going to the search engines and social media. These platforms provide user details and help marketers to understand the buyer’s journey. Here are some best practice methods to consider before beginning your first digital marketing campaign for your automobile business. Reviews People typically research online before they make a buying decision, especially when it comes to buying a high-ticket item like a car. They want to know the specifications and features of different car models they’re interest in. This is why you need to have good reviews for your product. Most car buyers seek the help of online dealership reviews before finalizing their decision. Therefore, you need to check your online reviews regularly and tackle the negative ones wisely. You can also run an ORM campaign to get rid of the negative reviews. Search A report by G/O Digital shows that 30% of car buyers immediately search Google to start their car buying process. Thus, a strong online presence as an automaker is necessary. To ensure that you appear in the SERP when related queries are typed, you should make your site search engine friendly and run a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaign. An SEO strategy should include keyword analysis, link building, blogging, improving the domain authority and more. Social Media Platforms There’s hardly anyone any more who isn’t active on social media. A CMO report states that 1 in 4 car users discuss on social media before buying a car. Apart from this, there are several social media groups that help buyers know about the advantages and disadvantages of a specific car model. Social Media sites can also play an effective role in building brand loyalty, improve user experience and influence purchase decisions. All you have to ensure is that you share a good number of engaging content and respond to customer queries. Mobile It’s the […]

How to Set up and Optimize Your WordPress Blog for SEO

by Mandeep Saran @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

When it comes to optimizing a website for SEO, WordPress is the easiest solution available today. As it comes with an inbuilt admin panel, you don’t need to log in to your c-panel every time to make necessary changes to your site. Apart from uploading content, you can also optimize your site for SEO by accessing the wp-admin. Here’s how: Prepare Your Permalinks WordPress lets you set your permalinks in just a few clicks. All you need to do is go to Settings>Permalinks and change the default settings to the “post name” setting. You’re now ready to create URLs automatically according to the title of the posts. But before you do that, you should know what type of URLs can be created and what the benefit of the above-mentioned change is. There are generally two types of URLs, dynamic URL and static URL. A dynamic URL (www.abc.com/%123#) is mostly seen in eCommerce stores. As a product may have different sizes and colours, there can be a lot of URLs for similar items and the links can’t all be the same. Online stores use dynamic URLs automatically generated based on the product IDs to solve this problem. Static URLs are meant for sites that aren’t online stores. As they don’t have as many pages as an eCommerce store, post named custom URLs can be easily created and this is what Google recommends because these URLs consist of the topic of the post which is both user and SEO friendly. Install Yoast SEO Plugin Yoast SEO is probably the easiest solution to optimize a WordPress site. But installing it alone won’t do the job. There are still a lot of steps you need to take to help your blog acquire the top position. After you install the plugin, you should connect your site with Google search console to use the features of the tool and help Google crawl and index your site once it’s live. You should add your company and business details to Yoast SEO plugin so that Google can identify and show your site on the SERP. Yoast SEO also allows you to create meta data and titles so that search engines can read them to find your business. Generally, the plugin automatically generates these details from the body of the content. But, if you want to make it more optimized, you can do it yourself. Check which keywords suit […]

Dates In Serp's - Good Or Bad?

by @ All Forums

I'm pretty much behind on SEO these days. I just get on with running my site. I've only just noticed that Google is showing the date of my original article in its results. On one search I'm number 2, and the first thing written on the snippet is the date (2013). I've just spent a week totally rewriting this article so the date is misleading.

 

I have used some code to display the date my articles were last updated right under the title, which is presumably good. So this is fine, people can see when it was originally written and when last updated. But I've noticed there are lots of articles and plugins around to hide the date from Google. I instinctively think that's not a good idea. But at the same time I can also see that if searchers see my article written in 2013 next to one with a 2017 date I might lose out?

 

What's the thinking about this please?

Everything You Need to Know about Mobile Website and Responsive Design

by Mandeep Saran @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

A mobile friendly web appearance is necessary for any business today. Apart from attracting mobile users, mobile friendliness can also be a major ranking factor according to Google’s 2015 algorithm update. Since then, many website owners have migrated to responsive designs with some adopting a separate mobile site. Both are viable options, but you need to understand the differences between them and choose the most suitable option for your business. Responsive Design A responsive site is coded in a way that it fits all types of devices, be it a desktop, mobile or a tablet. The tailored code lets your website resize perfectly when it is displayed. It gives an optimal viewing experience by using the same domain name. Along with this, its back-end code detects the dimensions of a screen and responds immediately. It means that you can make even the small changes perfectly visible to all three types of devices just by updating the main site. Benefits Sites with responsive web designs don’t require special maintenance as responsive design uses the same domain name as the main site. Visitors viewing the site on mobile will be able to access all the content available on the main site. Responsive designs future-proof your site. Mobile Site A mobile site may can have the exact look of your main website or it can be designed differently. Where it differs from responsive design is that it uses a different domain name than the actual site and requires separate maintenance. A mobile site loads faster than a normal site and more importantly, it gets preferred by Google when searched using a mobile device. It also lets you create a unique experience for mobile users. Benefits Because the site is meant only for the mobile users, you can optimize the journey of the viewers. For example, you can emphasize different content that’s different from the main site. As the content will be visible on mobiles, the page size can be reduced. This will eventually improve the load speed of the site. Mobile sites can be navigated easily and they also come with at low cost. Responsive designs are generally preferred by most website owners because they don’t require any spate maintenance. But if your business is mobile centric and you get a lot of mobile visitors daily, then you should start thinking about creating a mobile site as it will allow for more optimized […]

Youtube - Boo Who

by @ All Forums

Been awhile since I've toyed with creating videos and they totally did away with the old annotations. The kind you could create in Photoshop and overlay as transparent pngs, then link to a web page. Blows the creativity I craved out the window. And I got clicks from it too. Sure, one can still use links to an associated website but each video also requires linking to a playlist or another video, but the space is limited and so is the size of their so called 'cards' which I think sucks too. Probably just an easier way for most to implement.

 

DANGIT. I was going to try some YT adwords too. Not with this furbared setup.

How to Optimize Your Business for Branded Search

by Mandeep Saran @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

Users who invest in digital marketing, primarily focus on getting their keywords ranked. Of course, the most important concern is having their businesses displayed alongside the most searched words related to the services or products they offer. But what about the brand name? You may not earn a new customer by being visible on the SERP with your business name, but there’s a threat of losing customers if they can’t find your business by its name. Businesses that have unique names don’t need as much effort to become visible on the SERP. But for companies that have common business names, or have common words in their business names, it will be harder to secure the top position in the SERP when the brand name is searched for. You have to make Google understand that your name stands for a different organization and that you are there for a different purpose. There are also several other tasks that can be done for brand enhancement. Let’s go over a few. Anchor Texts To make sure that you are ranking for your own brand name, you should have it in anchor texts a good number of times. Google decides what pages you have on your website after crawling the anchor texts so make full use of it. Even so, you still need to create anchor texts on off page contents to prove your authenticity. If businesses from other fields get ranked with your brand name, you can make slight changes in creating the anchor texts. For example, if you provide photography services and find that a travel agency ranks with your brand name, you can simply add “photography” to your business name to help Google understand that you are a different business. Business Listing Business listings can give a huge boost to your branded search optimization. Listing on high authority sites proves your authenticity and authority and thus, Google starts quickly relying on your business. What you need to ensure is that you are not getting listed in low authority directory submission sites because Google considers those links spam. Display the Right Pages Once you start ranking for your business name, you should focus on displaying the right pages from your site. You aren’t finished just because you’ve secured the first spot. Your most relevant and useful pages should be visible to answer questions related to your brand. Home pages, product pages and […]

What Width Are You Designing For Now ?

by @ All Forums

A decade ago lots of people were making their websites to fit a 640-pixel-wide monitor, then an 800 monitor, then a 1024....

 

.... and now with mobile we are being squeezed down to the microformat of 300 wide.

 

They call that progress???

 

Lots of people are accomplishing this with designs that automatically resize to fit the device they are being viewed upon.

 

How are you handling this?   If you have not redesigned your site in the past couple of years you probably have lots of people looking at your site with devices that are smaller than you expected.

 

And, with lots of people using enormously wide monitors... what is the upper width that you are assuming?     And, is that important?

 

I don't know the answers to this stuff... but it sure looks like a briar patch.

Did Buying Links Work?

by @ All Forums

Before SEO was invented, we called it "website promotion". In the year 2000, I worked full time as a user interface engineer and moonlighted at night doing search engine marketing work and my blog, and in that same year I was trained in human factors by my employer. That was when I fell in love with UX and began Holistic SEO and UX work, discussions, and promoting the union of those two opposing (especially in those days), fields.

 

Years later, as links became the method for marketing, one of my clients was paying a well known marketing company $10,000 for them to find him links that they would purchase for an additional several thousand per link. We would argue all the time about how his websites weren't user friendly, but he was paying out the whazoo for links.  While I was hired to redesign all of his sites, he refused to follow some of my recommendations. His sites were invasive and strictly marketing oriented, with no desire to actually connect with the humans coming to them. 

 

I got to thinking today about all the companies who paid enormous amounts of money to buy links, even after the crack downs against the practice.  I was never able to see how what they were doing was an investment that would benefit them for the long term. To me, the benefit was for the search engine marketing company that was hired.  

 

I was thinking today about this and wondered if the companies that broke their piggy banks to buy links are glad they did.

Why You Should Invest in Local Citations

by James @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

The theory behind successful SEO has changed a lot in the past few years. Before, all that mattered was the quantity of links you had. Nowadays, effective SEO is built on getting quality backlinks to raise your ranking up in the SERPs. Therefore, you should focus on increasing the number of quality links and local citations. Getting listed in local directories, likely won’t give you a huge jump in the rankings overnight. However, you will pull ahead of websites that have a similar SEO standing to your own. Here are the benefits: Validation: Citations reflect validity which is why Google’s algorithm takes them so seriously. You can put up a website and say that you are the best in the industry, but citations are what verify whether your company is something of value. Google also considers the reviews that you get from local listing sites. Community: Citations also let you have a community that plays an important role in local search engine rankings. Your activities in the community make your business real to Google and help it to relay your authenticity. B2B and B2C Marketing: Online directories are a good source of clients. Both users and businesses alike might need your service or product. They allow you a chance at both B2B and B2C marketing. Niche Industry: There are still numerous businesses that don’t have a website. They are just listed in some local citations, meant for niche industries. Google trusts these sites a lot as it knows they contain the only information on them to be found. If you are one of these businesses who have just created a website, you will improve your ranking if you are already listed in some local listing sites focused on small industries like your own. Security: Citations protect against manipulation. Link submission can be manipulated. There are several instances where links get redirected to sites that are completely irrelevant to their source sites. But brand mentions are harder to manipulate as the citations should be relevant to the content redirected. Enhanced Maps Visibility: Once your local citation gets crawled by Google, your business is more likely to pop up in Google Maps when people search with the relevant keywords. Domain Authority: Listing your site in quality sites improves the domain authority of your website. Consequently, it provides you the chance of getting ranked with more complex search queries. Local Advertising: If you […]

Learning basic SEO concepts for web development?

Hi TomaszGa,

I've studied SEO myself, but I'm not an expert. There are a lot of things that affect SEO:

  • Page Load Time

  • Mobile friendliness/responsive layout

  • Links from other sites to a site - reputation

  • How users interact with a site, do they bounce or browse

  • Content

If you are only building a new theme for an existing site, and not changing the content or URL I don't see how that's going to hurt SEO. If you give the site a new domain name that would definitely hurt the SEO. Also, changing the content or URLs could hurt the SEO. But it's possible the affects would only be temporary. When it comes to SEO you have to think like a search engine. They don't see the site like humans, they just process text. So, link URLs, H1 vs H2, content(meaning writing like paragraphs and articles), how people interact with a site, etc. If you're not affecting those types of things then you won't change the SEO. I hope that helps a little.

What Makes A Podcast A Great Podcast?

by @ All Forums

I will be traveling in a few days to spend several days with a well known SEO speaker and author friend who invited me out to conduct a series of podcasts on UX, SEO, accessibility and everything in between.  I won't say who that person is until we get into the formal promo side of things.

 

It's been years since I did a podcast. I believe my first one was with Eric Enge, years ago. I've been on Webmaster Radio (when it was called that) many times, and of course, video interviews at conferences.

 

Podcasts are still fairly new to me as a user. I tend to go for visuals like video and am still a book lover. I want to do a great job at this and am seeking your pointers both as listeners and doers.

How Do You Build Your Website?

Website Pixel Width Revisited For 2017

by @ All Forums

Ten to fifteen years ago we had regular, recurrent and prolonged debates about the width of a website.

Back then, monitors were growing in width from 640 pixels to 800 to 1024. Back then, much of the debate about width was "how wide can I make it and still fit on a person's desktop monitor".

Instead, many of our concerns about width are focused on the puny width of a cell phone. At what width do we make a responsive site transform from desktop to mobile?

Today, many desktop monitors are so wide that reading long lines across the entire width is difficult for many people.

So, perhaps we need to consider throttling the desktop width to make long-line reading easy for most people. Of course, we could increase font size because huge fonts are easier to read at 2000 pixels wide then the tiny text of wikipedia. But, I don't think that's the answer.

I tend to look at large, extremely popular sites that monetize with ads for my guidance. Here are three of the most common approaches that I have seen

1) Wikipedia is totally responsive. They scale page width to fit your monitor or device and allow long lines to run thousands of pixels across the widest monitor you can find.

2) The New York Times seems to assume that you have a desktop monitor that is about 1000 wide - and their design centers in the middle of your monitor view. It will then respond to narrower monitors, but at about 800 pixels wide they are willing to allow their design to be lost of the right side of the monitor.

3) The Washington Post seems to assume that your monitor is about 1200 pixels wide and centers in the middle of your screen. Then, if your monitor is any less than their max width, it will respond smoothly - by abandoning columns - down to about 300 pixels wide.

My site is a little less than 1000 pixels wide and responds when the screen width gets down to about 500 pixels. Then images and column widths shrink to maintain a single column design.

I am trying to decide what to do with a new site.

What do you think? Have you seen any sites that you think handle different monitor and device widths well?

One Site Or 19?

by @ All Forums

I have a client that instead of having one comprehensive site, decided to put up 19 identical sites -- one for each city that they wanted to target.  

 

I had advised that having one site that was a one-stop-shop for their services with individual targeted city pages was the best way to go -- especially when we are talking WordPress sites that need to be updated and monitored.  But they are DIYers and DIY'd each site.  I loaded up the theme and plugins and they took it from there.  All the sites have blank pages (or coming soon), blank Blogs so no content is being added.  They are basically brochurewares.   Duplicate everything just with "cityname" changed.

 

Because they didn't pay attention to updating, the majority of their sites got hacked.  I cleaned all the sites told them how they have to approach maintenance, and provided recommendations (UI, content, blah, blah, blah) moving forward.   Nothing has changed.   They either don't have or don't want to spend the money and/or time.  None of the site are https either.   They didn't like hearing my advice on that.

 

So that's the backstory...

 

I'm here to get input from you guys about what is the best approach at this point in time from an SEO POV.   I believe moving to one https comprehensive site is easier to manage, optimize, track and keep secure.  And less expensive in the long term.  Then, point/forward the 18 city domains to each city's page on the new site.

 

They do not want risk any rankings they have for their city sites.  I asked how they had been tracking rankings and not surprisingly their answer was they search for themselves to determine where they rank.  Ugh.

 

These are nice folks and I would really like to help them succeed.   So next week I've scheduled a telecon to go over their options. 

 

How would you handle this situation if the client were yours?   Am I on the right track?  Thanks in advance for your advice!

The basic requirements of good SEO is to build a good website that is useful to real people. Thankfully the days of gaming the system are largely gone.

A great way to learn about SEO is to analyse sites with free, online SEO analyser tools. Then you can read up on all the individual criteria they judge a site by. I learned a lot more about SEO by using these tools. This article has a list of SEO tools you can use. They are also a useful way to critique your website to ensure you're following best practice (e.g. all images have alt properties, only one h1 tag per page, etc.).

Would you need to change the locations of the site's existing pages? If they already have a lot of links coming in from the outside I can understand why they'd be nervous about a complete re-design. If you are just changing the theme and some behind the scenes stuff and the URLs of each page are staying the same then this might make your prospective client a bit happier.

Two useful quick tips for SEO: Keywords. Use keywords appropriately in the text, making sure you also use synonyms and phrases that customers might search with. Scatter them in a reasonable manner through the page, making sure it still reads well for your audience and doesn't seem like it's being written for a robot! Treat each page separately for SEO because you never know which page is going to be the one a user lands on first.

Also, ensure the site has SSL encryption and that your http:// site is redirected to https://. Google is currently boosting rankings for https:// sites to encourage a more secure web.

cheers,

Sympathy For The Web Site User

by @ All Forums

I know the majority of the long time members here are well aware of our legacy of including usability and user experience in marketing and development work, so I wondered if you have noticed the sudden rise in interest for UX by companies that have websites and digital marketing strategies?

 

When I tell someone who doesn't know me that I test websites for a living, I say something like, "I'm the person who finds out why it isn't working" and then they either hug me or tell me their stories about all the bad user experiences they have. When I tell them I help make web pages work for special needs users, the response is always surprise and appreciation, and then they realize they hadn't really considered that not everyone can use a computer device the same way they do.  I'm always educating clients on that too.

 

Few user interface designers and most developers don't worry too much about empathy for the user. That's been my job for a long time. However, there is growing interest in journey mapping and for some companies, a return to user personas.  I still don't see user testing performed routinely and I think its because of the expense of setting it up and having a trained person there to do it or set up remote user testing.  It's its own set of skills, from the way users are observed to the tasks they are given.  There's definitely a gap in understanding how people use our websites, but the light is turned on. I see more companies wanting to put human faces on their data.

 

Sometimes I worry there is nothing new to imagine, build, or create.  I never seem to run out of ideas but lack the time, talent, skills and resources to do much with what's in my head. I can see, however, there's lots of room to keep introducing new mobile apps and ones that refine and improve on the choices that are already out there.  While traveling, my husband and I had some real life experiences that had me researching and gathering business requirements for a new app during the 6 hour drive back home from where we were over the weekend.  It was fascinating for me to see an unmet user need.

 

Connecting with users is something that we don't have fully figured out and it occurred to me that this is because in real life, we don't understand how to connect with each other, so expecting to do it with our devices, websites and apps is difficult. I have to say that this is exciting to me.

 

I'm not sure where all this fits in with machine learning yet, and I wonder how we will connect our human-ness with machine-ness.

 

Do you think we will?

How to Optimize Your Business for Smart Devices

by James @ G Web Pro Marketing Inc. – Toronto

According to Google, more than 50% of search queries are now made on mobile devices. Users are more comfortable using mobile apps than surfing on desktops. This means mobiles should be the prime target for businesses interested in growth. Websites without mobile versions or poorly optimized for mobile devices will miss the opportunity to get a high level of audience engagement. They’ll also encounter a gradual rank drop in the SERPs. Here are some optimization tips that can save your website from an impending SEO disaster. List Your Business in Google My Business Google My Business offers an easy way to display your website in the search results. Just fill out the form and add as many images as possible. It will show a Knowledge Graph which includes your business details when users search with your business name. Listing your business will also boost your ranking in the SERPs on both mobiles and desktops. Check Your Listings Often Listing sites are very popular with mobile users because they are easy to use on the go. As a result, several listing apps are used today to find a business. To make the most of this trend, you need to check your listings often and ensure that all the details provided there are correct. You should also try to get some good reviews on these sites so that more users can rely on you. Optimize for Local Searches Local businesses can strongly benefit from search results on mobile, which is another reason to keep your local listings up to date. This includes checking which keywords are typed most often to search for local businesses similar to yours. Find that information and then better optimize your content. Add Keywords Based on Voice Search When it comes to optimizing your website for mobile devices, pay attention to voice searches. The keyword selection method meant for voice search is different from the normal ways of choosing keywords. When you pick keywords for desktop users, you need to concentrate more on exact match keywords. But for voice search, you should be choosing long phrase keywords because speaking something is not as time-consuming as writing it down. Also remember to look for informative keywords as people over the phone are more prone to ask questions. Get a Mobile Version Apart from being responsive, you should also have a mobile version of your site to secure a good ranking […]

How Do You Build Your Website?

Learning basic SEO concepts for web development?

@TomaszGa wrote:

I've been negotiating my first potential bigger freelance contract just now, and I might lose the client because of my lack of SEO knowledge.

Long story short, he has a very outdated Wordpress site, I offered to build a brand new one, he was interested but very concerned about losing the SEO rankings already built on the old site. It's not like my solution would be really bad for his SEO, the issue was that I truly had no idea what to say because of my lack of knowledge. Frantic googling mid-negotiations is not an adequate strategy.

So, dear campers, did anyone study the basics to a level where you can appease clients and really build adequately optimized sites? What were the best resources you found? I'm asking here instead of just googling because it seems anyone offering SEO advice on the web is also the shrewd affiliate marketer type and I don't really trust them.

What Are The Qualities That Web Developers Should Have?

by @ Web Site Programming

The Way Forward Is Getting Crowded

by @ All Forums

Over the years I've shared bits of what I've been doing and where I've been heading; the one thing I rarely touched on was the increasing amount of hardware required. It really has gotten quite, ummm, extensive. And expensive. Even over 3G (my current default benchmark) pages load bang, bang, fast and multimedia streams quick and smooth. While in the background bots are shunted aside and humans get variously granular contextually personalised content. It works well.

The problem is that others are catching up. For a decade there were only a few of us playing off in a corner quietly. Then a half decade of several new kids figuring out bits and pieces and, OMG!, writing about them in mass media for all to see (and largely ignore). But now, enterprise sites are catching on and catching up. And they have the resources to do in a day what took me a year or three. Yes, much of the webdev world is fixated on Google and FaceBook and Apple, but there is a web revolution happening aside from them. They are not excluded, often they are driving development of each latest 'ball' but it's others that are picking it up and running with it.

It is fascinating to see what my competitors (not niche, rather in what might be) are turning out. And where that points their development direction. Where I've been heading, instinctively at first and, for the past 7-years deliberately (as I said explicitly here in 2010), is to sites where one is not only told a story but shown the story, where one can wade as shallowly or dive as deep as desired as often as one wants; where, coming back again the experience is both as expected and new; and where the story is your story as well as mine (the site's) and on that commonality I pick your pocket and you smile.

Following Links To See Who To Market To

A request came into these forums that was unusual, especially for a forum instead of a web site or blog.

 

Hi team at Cre8asiteforums,

I'm emailing you because I came across this page (links to forums topic)
I noticed you linked to one of my favorite articles (links to the article)

Just wanted to let you know that I created a similar version of it, just more updated and visual.

Its here: (Provides link to the new article)

 

 

Is this a new type of practice and why bother to target a forums, especially in lieu of the fact that all links in these forums are no-follow. I can see it being logical for a blog post and especially when there is an established relationship between the author and site owner.
