SEO Process

seo can be divided into two main categories: on-page/ in web site seo and off-page seo.

On-page seo

on-page seo refers to how well your website’s content is presented to search engines. this can often be improved immediately. page titles are one of the most important on-page seo factors. they are the text you see at the top of your browser window when viewing a web page. they are also the title of a page that is presented in search engines.

off-page seo

off-page seo refers to your site’s overall “authority” on the web, which is determined by what other websites say about your site. this can take time to improve. even though on-page seo accounts for only about 25% of how search engines score and rank your website, it’s worth tackling first since it can be improved quickly

B2B Web site content

Having an abundance of e-books, white papers, webinars, podcasts, video, etc. is great. Yet before you get to the content overload stage, you need to ensure you have lots of “bread and butter” content including:

Services / product info – I recommend that for each service or product you offer, you have a page of content describing it – versus cramming everything onto one or two pages. Having more pages also makes it easier to optimize for specific keywords.
FAQs – Multiple FAQ pages regarding different aspects of your business answer people’s questions as well as drawing them to your site via search.
Case studies / testimonials / client lists – Third-party endorsements help prospects decide whether they should do business with you.
Articles / e-newsletter / blog – Whether you have all three or just one, this type of content educates site visitors, shows your expertise and gets passed around via social media.
Your B2B website is the best marketing asset you own. Help your web site help you increase sales by ensuring that you communicate the right value message, that prospects can find your content in the search engines, and that your site helps move people to the next step in the sales cycle.
