SEO is just the beginning

April 27, 2010

A proper SEO campaign need a few things to succeed. Having a good site designer definitely helps. Presentation is your foot in the door. If it looks the part then you have a chance to show potential customers what you have to offer. Is it easy to navigate? Is the layout clear and concise? Is the message short and sweet?

Content is the next draw. Got linkbait? Are people hitting your site because of search engine keywords? If so do you have to goods to back it up? Will people stick around and click on a link or 2? It’s more than keyword density and meta tags. Rounding up the average web surfer and keeping them coming back is the key to long term growth.

Links and ads. You can avoid them. Helping strengthen partner relationships and generating side revenue helps pay for those new shoes. Just remember to keep the outgoing and incoming links balanced. This ain’t no link farm. Quality of the link helps point loyal readers to sources you go to and trust.

Keyword Worth

Some interesting stats here. Taking a look at the value per click it might be a good idea to fill up your content posts with, smartphone ($2.03), cell phone (1.95), laptop ($5.45), computers ($3.74), desktop ($5.32), fitness equipment ($3.57), weight loss ($2.37), earrings ($4.65), mattress ($3.45), time machine hot tub ($2.54). OK, so the time machine thing isn’t a high ranking keyword, but seriously did you see that movie? It’s hilarious.

The number also show just how competitive some keywords can be and how much money you can make by filling your blog full of content. Just giving you some ideas for posts and hopefully making you money at the same time.
