Today, the majority of web traffic is driven by the major search engines: Google, Yahoo and Bing (MSN). Google is by far the largest, attracting approximately 60% of worldwide searches. However, with the majority of users abandoning their search after the first 3 pages of results and 28 % not even making it past page two, achieving a high search engine placement is essential. The competition is invariably strong, but the reward is an increase in traffic, more enquiries and sales.
The process of getting a site to rank highly is called optimization and involves making the structure and content of the site accessible and relevant to specific search terms. The key to good optimisation is to identify those keywords or phrases that your customers are using when searching for your products or services and to create the content in a way so that it remains appealing to human visitors - not just the search engines.
At MonkeyWeb, we understand the practice and importance of optimization, but we also know that it must not distract from the design or functionality of the site. Optimisation is not an exact science and there are no guarantees, but we have achieved some excellent results for our clients using the following process:
Benchmarking your existing site, if applicable, will allow us to monitor any changes and improvements.
Analysing your competitors optimisation strategies and their strengths and weaknesses will allow us to identify the opportunities available for high search engine placement.
Our proposals for the most effective search terms to concentrate on, as well as content creation suggestions for your site, link building and ongoing strategy.
For Macpac, we produced a number of landing pages which were optimised for specific product types. When customers search for specific terms, these landing pages appear rather than the homepage.
As well as being able to optimise for various terms, this also has the advantage that when a visitor lands on that page, they are presented with the information they are looking for without having to search further.View Casestudy
