Understanding SEO and What Matters Most

Search Engine Optimisation is important for a website to be ranked by Google. This is a simple explanation of what matters most with SEO. So you can have a more effective online presence.

Let’s face it when someone is looking for a product, service or solution to a question.
What do they do?
They ‘Google it’

That is why as a website owner you need to understand what matters most with Search Engine Optimisation.
Please Note: When we talk about SEO we are referring to Organic Search Engine Ranking. That is ranking in a search without paying for advertising for that page position on Google.google-seo-graph-300

There are 2 types of SEO they are;

  1. ON Site SEO which is Search Engine Optimisation done on your website to improve your Search Ranking.
  2. OFF Site SEO which is Search Engine Optimisation done away from your website. That intern increases your websites search-ability and your Search Ranking.
    An example of the most effective tool you can use for Off Site SEO is your FREE Google My Business Pages. That is the listing that normally is below the paid adverts and these Google My Business listing have Google Reviews, a link to your website and Directions etc.
    However using and optimising Google My Business Pages is a topic for another day. Want to know more contact us at  https://findnetsolutions.com/contact-us/

Let’s Focus on Your Websites SEO and What Matters

I will explain what you need to focus on with SEO. Keeping it simple for you to understand the hierarchy of website Organic SEO. And the importance of starting from the SEO Basics which is a website ‘Crawl-ability’. This is how well the website has been constructed so search engine bots can easily crawl a website and understand page layout and what links to what and what content is on each pages. This starts with an XML file called a sitemap which lists the URL of each page on the website.

Crawl-ability is the very basic and most important part of the SEO Hierarchy. It’s the basic needs of a website to be found and ranked by Google.

You could relate it to ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs’ as the basics of life. The ‘physiological needs’ of a human. This includes breathing, food, water and shelter for humans.

Hierarchy of Website SEO

 

However many website owners are mistaken as they believe that’s ALL they need is a well constructed website. They believe that’s all they need to be ranked well in a Google search. This is absolutely incorrect these days with nearly 400 new websites being launched every minute.

So with competition increasing at over half a million new websites a day.

You need to focus on more than Crawl-ability. You need to focus on the next few SEO levels in SEO Hierarchy. Which is  ‘Compelling Content’ and ‘Keyword Optimising’.

Compelling Content needs to be recent and relevant content that answers the questions that people are searching for when they do a Google search.

The most effective way to have Compelling Content is to do regular Blog Posts on your website. When you do this regularly Google will improve your ranking. As you will become considered as an authority in your field.

Just Recently (August 2017) Google Added HTTPS:// As A New Search Algorithm

So that means that if your website has a SSL Secure Certificate (with Padlock Icon) then the URL (website address) starts with HTTPS:// and not the standard HTTP://.

By having a Secure Certificate installed for your domain Google will favour your website more than a Non Secure Website.

Google wants you to be safe when browsing the web. So if your website has an SSL Secure Certificate, that basically means the the transfer of data to your computers browser is encrypted, thus safer.

If you want to get a SSL Certificate we offer the best type Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates rather than the Domain Validation (DV) SSL Certificates. Why because with a full EV SSL Certificate, the Certificate Authority checks the right of the applicant to use a specific domain name PLUS it conducts a THOROUGH vetting of the organization. Thus it is a real SSL Certification.

How to get Google to crawl our site faster?

There are a few things you can do to improve your crawl speed.

Google crawlers are also know as Googlebots or Google’s web crawling bot, sometimes also called a spider. The more Googlebots crawl your website the better it will be indexed. The better your Google indexing is directly reflected in how high your website appears in a Google search.

Google wants to show a Googler (a person searching on Google) the best results for the search terms they search for. So Google ranks (indexes) websites for search terms. Google works this out with it’s ever changing Analytics.

Have an authoritative website

An authoritative website is basically a website that is recognised buy Google to;

  • Have relevant and recent information, this can be achieved by adding regular, informative, relevant well written (short, well formed sentences with good grammar)
  • Have back links from similar or related website, showing that this website is an important part of this topic being searched on Google.
    Note: irrelevant or spammy links from non related websites or on non related topics can ban a website from any Google search.
  • Be a site with little or no error of coding faults
    – bad links or 301 redirect pages

Google also looks at

  • Your websites security
    – are all the software that your website has up to date?
    – Do you have an SSL Certificate for your website?
    Google now penalisers a website that collects any persons details (like a contact form) if they done have https:// as the URL prefix
  • a XML sitemap installed, so Google can find it’s way around you site easily
  • Pages need to load fast,
    – so good website coding is important,
    – smart plug in are important to improve caching & file loading speed
    – images with the smallest file size is critical
  • Not being Responsive (mobile friendly website) Google penalises websites that are not mobile friendly when searched on a mobile devices, thus your website needs to be Responsive.
  • Too many URL on the one page to the same page etc, as this can slow Google crawlers down, as do spammy links.

Tips to increase your crawl speed

A couple of simple tips to increase your site’s crawl speed:

  • Using the methods above, find and fix all the errors.
    – Especially making your site Responsive (mobile friendly)
    – Have an SSL Certificate – having URL that starts with https://
    – Having a website that all the software is up to date
  • Keep your site recent and relevant with fresh quality well written content
  • Make sure your site is fast.
  • Add an XML sitemap to your site and submit it to the search engines.
  • If all of that fails to improve your crawl speed, start link building!
