Is your website showing up on search pages? Do you know what causes the poor page ranking? Improve your web site rank with these SEO auditing services.

Search Engine Optimization Service Options - SEO Auditing

There are many reasons why you would need to audit your website. A seo audit give you insight to your site's ranking and point out where to optimize. This service is available in two formats depending on your needs.

  • A in-depth analysis with a detailed report.
  • A in-depth analysis with optimization applied and a report of improvements.

SEO Level 1 - Website Analysis Report

The in-depth analysis of your website are split into four(4) sections:

  • Website Structure Compliance
  • Page level performance
  • Linking
  • Social networking abilities

The first two sections of this audit weighs in the heaviest on your website's performance. If these are not up to standard the remaining two sections will have no effect. Google employs the algorithm name Panda to look at these parts and assign ranking.

Website Structure Compliance In this section of the seo auditing service I look at the programming and the structure of your website. The programming and the way your website link all the pages and posts together are very important. The slightest errors here will surely affect your ranking in a negative way.

Page level Performance As the heading indicates, seo auditing on page level point out the elements on pages that negatively affect your website's performance. There are many conditions to consider, some being:

  • Page speed
  • Image quality
  • Tags

Optimizing for better search results is not an exact science. I say this because google does not publish a set of rules which each site must comply to.

This is an effort to stop or decrease manipulation of website rank on SERP's (Search Engine Result Pages) by means of hacks and tricks. Google revealed in their latest update that websites employing trickery and sites with a history of spamming will receive heavy penalties.

Linking Links to your website has always been a priority and nothing changed there. Incoming links are still important, if not more than ever. Quality of inbound links are more important than quantity.

Social Networking Social activity flows in with linking and are becoming more and more important over time. As part of the seo audit I look at your websites ability to interact with various social networks.Your website must not only be able to post to social networks, but also support good quality when making posts.
The four named sections above cover only a small part of the audit, I look at more than 200 different elements.

Level 2 - SEO Auditing and Implementation

Level 2 of this service goes beyond the in-depth audit and give you a full service that includes implementation of remedies as pointed out in the audit report.

It gets better, you will not only receive a in-depth audit and a report after the implementation. Added as part of this service I will conduct two performance reports. The first performance report before I start and the second after all the improvements. This will give you a clear understanding of the effect of the optimization.


Conclusion

There are many factors influencing the ranking of your website. The standards or algorithms used to check rank often receive updates. This mean that if your website shows up high now, it may not stay there for ever. Here is some more information:

Wikipedia - Google Panda: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Panda Panda looks at website quality and lowered the rank of low-quality or thin websites.Wikipedia - Google Hummingbird: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Hummingbird Hummingbird focus on searchers intent and decide what they are trying to find.

With this in-house training and 3 months mentoring deal you will be ontop of the latest tips and tricks. The purpose of this course is to enable you to successfully manage your own digital marketing.

What is the problem to overcome?

Even though the internet offer great tools for marketing, it comes with its own set of rules. This mean that conventional marketing changed and you need to adapt to get a positive result.

Not just Marketing There are many parts involved in content marketing and social marketing, more than simply posting adverts on the internet. Another misconception is that getting a website is the solution, but that is not true. Your website is one of 5 channels you can use to get your name out there.

What does it take? You do not need a programing degree or be a marketing specialist. Harvesting clients with digital marketing is not as difficult as many people would like to make you think. There are some basic principles to apply and once you stick to that you will see the fruits of your efforts.

Video creates the ability to really simplify things. Video is more effective than posters or signage. This is because video is easier to perceive and requires less effort on the client side.

Where else than on the internet will you be able to use video?

Because video can be presented in many ways, it opens the door to leave the internet and mobile devices and take on a more physical form. A very basic example will be a display panel or a tv displaying video to clients, in areas where they spend time waiting or even relaxing, as in the case of a pub or restaurant.

Zero Budget Samples

I named this package the zero budget, not because it is free but simply because these videos are made with no real video footage. The only reference material I used are supplied by the client. This method is the most cost-effective and works miracles for presentations and social sharing.

Studio Budget Videos

With this configuration the cost are determined by complexity and time. A studio budget video includes video footage that are taken in studio or at your business. This package includes 3D modeling and basic animation and advanced video techniques, green screen and other effects. This type of video is pefect for anything from sharing to digital display panels and in-store video advertising.

Live Shoot Videos

Video for different uses

All videos does not have to be commercials(ads). Some other types include:

  • Infomercials
  • Short documentary
  • Presentation
  • Interactive/Dynamic content (Kiosk)
  • Digital signage - video

Mix video with the right hardware and your options becomes endless.

One way to mix video and hardware will be to drop in some programming and set up an information desk or kiosk. Adding an information desk/kiosk to your business is like adding another staff member that is dedicated to aid clients with product information or technical advice. All of this at a fraction of the cost.
