As with all other technologies, the search engine market is also rapidly developing with the introduction of several new updates and other discoveries. In order to be successful, companies have to update their websites accordingly too. That is where our job comes into play. Here are some ways we have adapted to a few of those changes.
Video content is something that search engines have found quite difficult to understand. However, recently, many new services and standards were introduced to help in providing search engines with valuable metadata about their video content. After this discovery, search engines began to understand video content in certain ways that they could have never before thought possible.
The introduction of an audio transcription service was launched to video uploading websites. This service uses advanced speech recognition technology that detects the audio content in a specific video and automatically generates captions for the video content. Before this introduction, video uploading websites depended only on the owners of the video content to provide captions. Therefore, we at SEO Company UK are constantly advising our clients to produce high quality and relevant video content for their websites. We also optimize these videos for specialized video searches and for social media platforms.
Since of late, search engines also began giving importance to brands in search results. This made it more difficult for other websites to obtain a high ranking when compared with branded keywords. This approach was demonstrated by eliminating a past restriction allowed only two results from one domain to rank on the very same page within a search result. Now, when a user is searching for a particular brand, search engines can return a full page of results that belong to one single domain when it thinks that the user is in search of only that brand. This result is possible only if that particular brand’s website has enough pages that the search engine thinks would be relevant to the search. With the removal of this restriction on search engines, it will now be difficult to rank products and services that do not belong to you hence making it harder for third party websites like affiliates and distributors to rank high in branded search terms. To combat this issue, our team at SEO Company UK adds unique value and content to third party websites in methods other than consistently repeating products related to the brand. We also build relevant and good quality backlinks. Furthermore, we help our clients to improve their online brand presence. One important benefit of this change is that reputation management for brands has become an easier task because of the high number of opportunities available for ranking.
A recent search engine update was also released to improve the quality of results that appeared in long tail searches. The same criteria that was being applied to short tail searches is now used for long tail searches too. With this update many websites were affected because some of them had focused only on long tail search strategies. Because of this they were not able to obtain better rankings for short tail keywords and these sites were not authoritative enough. With this update, only the more authoritative sites and those that ranked high on short tail searches speared in long tail search results.
To respond to this issue, we are making efforts to polish the contents of the websites of our client companies; the sites should be visible as experts in that field, the content should be unique and valuable and the structure of the website should be optimized. Furthermore, our team has found that it is better to avoid focusing on a single phrase and instead have supporting keywords and synonyms on page. in addition, we build website authority by making sure the on-topic internal and external links that deep link into the website are in many numbers and are of good quality.
Moving on, search engines introduced an additional factor in their ranking algorithms: website speed. The main aim of this change was to give users the information they are looking for in a quick, friendly and engaging manner. To adapt to this change, we, at SEO company UK began optimizing the front-end code of the website because this part accounts for roughly 80% of the page loading time. Furthermore, adding to many objects like videos, podcasts, charts, images and so on will reduce the website speed. Hence it is advisable to avoid such objects unless extremely necessary.
The marketplace is changing. Most consumers now find the goods and services they need online. Studies have shown that almost 96% of all clicks as a result of searches are to the sites on the first page. If you’re not on page one, sorry, you have almost no chance. On page one, the #1 ranked site gets about 45% of all clicks down to the #10 site which receives less than 3%.
A typical search engine query will result in thousands upon thousand of search results; they’re ranked from most relevant to least relevant, based on the keywords you entered in your search. No one is going to sift through several pages of search results, so if your website doesn’t rank in the top ten, it will be virtually invisible to your potential customers.
SEO will boost your search engine rankings for maximum visibility and maximum traffic. In a brick and mortar location, you would draw in business with bold signage or a great display. The right SEO techniques do the same thing for your website; they attract customers and get them to visit your site.
Every business owner knows the importance of cutting costs; the less you have to spend, the higher your profits can be. Doing the work yourself instead of hiring a job out can save you significant money, but the “do it yourself” option can sometimes cost you more in the long run. SEO has the potential to greatly increase your return on investment, especially when you hire a professional who can do it the right way.
You have a business to run. Unless you’re in the website development industry, your business knowledge probably doesn’t include writing code and SEO methods. Focus on running your business instead of spending your precious time figuring out how to implement SEO strategies. Your SEO expert knows how to do the job. He or she can determine the best SEO methods and implement them correctly to get you the online visibility you need.
You will find dozens of SEO providers online, ready and willing to take your money. Like any other business decision, it’s important to focus on the potential return on your investment; what are you getting for what you’re spending? If our SEO Agency cannot get your site top 10 rankings for your primary keywords in Google within three months of starting your campaign, there are no further charges for our SEO Service. After six months, if first page results are not achieved, we will even refund your first three monthly payments – every penny. That’s how confident we are that we will bring you the results we promise.
Compare our performance based SEO company to competing firms with ranking guarantee programs, and it is easy to see that our program is the best offer available. Other SEO Agencies charge clients for 2nd page rankings, or for ranking for their secondary keywords, or for only ranking in Bing or Yahoo. From our stand point, if your website isn’t on the first page of Google for your main keywords, we do not deserve to be compensated.
