PostHeaderIcon User Experience Search Engine Optimization



SEO or search engine optimization defines as the process of improving the volume or quantity of traffic to a website from search engines. Traffic means acknowledging a website by online users at the same time and viewing the advertisement from different places almost all over the world. Thus, with SEO, a website can definitely be on top of a huge number of search results.

Search engine optimization is all about the user experience, because the idea behind SEO is to get users to their desired information and destinations as quickly and easily as possible by using the user’s language or keywords. Searchers type in keywords at a commercial web search engine.

On the surface, a SEO professional’s presumed knowledge of user experience might sound impressive. However, if you do a little digging, you might discover that search professionals have their own preconceived notions as to what constitutes a positive user experience, notions that have little or nothing to do with users at all.

There are many different ways that both search professionals and usability professionals gather information about users. Focus groups, Web analytics data, keyword research, field interviews, and usability tests are all ways that these professionals can gather information about searcher behavior and interaction with a website. Search professionals rely heavily on keyword research tools and Web analytics data to determine how users, and search engines, interact with a website.

Consequently, when your website is always located on the first item of search results, it gives mark to the mind of online users and getting the big chance to be seen by prospective consumers or customers. Your company website will be the favorite site to visit and will have the possible achievement of sales target leading to a higher return on your investment.

For example, a keyword phrase might be popular. And a site might rank well for this particular keyword phrase and its long-tail variations. But if the searchers who use this keyword phrase are not among your site’s target audience, then all of the time and expense put into the optimization and advertising for this keyword phrase is wasted.

When I test search results pages for usability, I do not hear test participants say that they view these websites in a positive manner. Rather, they are quite irritated when search listings (and the corresponding web pages) do not meet their expectations. And they become increasingly irritated when the same site appears over and over again for multiple searches. They are not only irritated with the website, they are also irritated with the search engine that keeps delivering listings from the same site over and over again. Test participants usually do not blame themselves for formulating poor search queries. They often blame the website owner and the search engine.

The user experience does not come from a brand manager’s perspective, a marketing manager’s perspective, or even a search engine’s perspective. The user experience comes from the user’s perspective. A search marketers would do well to keep this point in mind when doing SEO.

Another benefit that you can experience by the use of SEO is the high ranking in search engines. The only problem is that you will need to understand better how the search algorithms work and the requirements to meet it. Every search engine though has their own set of rules and basis on how to rank webpages, seems to share some common basis as well.

Making money by writing and submitting articles

Making money by writing and submitting articles

Article distribution is one of the most powerful ways of promoting your site. You can either write or have written articles about your products. There are a variety of different types of articles you can use, but one of the most popular is informative articles. Another popular article type is a product review.

Distribution: You can do this manually and find all the article directories and libraries etc online, and then manually submit your article. This is free but very time consuming. You can use software, which is a little limited or you can use a good service that will cover a wide variety of lists and directories.

Before you submit your articles, be very sure that you have a good bio box that will allow your readers to click through to your website.

Article submission will help your business in several ways. Here are a few of them:

  • Establish you as an expert in your field: This will gain you more trust and credibility, and will encourage more clicks through and sales.
  • Create back links: These links will increase your Page Rank with Google and allow you to get a better position in their search engine.
  • It will also bring more people to your website through the links.

You can either write your own articles or have someone write them for you. Another way is to take advantage of free content from MoreNiche. You can join this site for free and they will send you fresh articles every week.

Modifying the articles for your use: Of course your content will need to be original, so you would need to rewrite the articles for your own use. You can also just use the ideas and write a brand new article. These articles will be very useful for you, as it will save you hours of research and writing. They will also keep you up to date with various new trends in your industry.

Using articles to make money

Using articles to make money

Looking through the universe of online affiliate marketing, you’ll notice that most sites fall into two categories. There are sites that simply have a list of links to other sites that sell products. You’ll notice that these sties come up often in web searches on Google or Yahoo, but they don’t seem very useful since all they have is other links and no actual content of their own.

The other kind of affiliate site is the kind that you want. It is a site that has all the same links that the others do, but it also has content. Now, what does “content” mean, anyway? Content is simply an internet term that means articles or information on a web page. Why do affiliate sites that use content work better than those that don’t? It’s simple.

If you click on a site, say, a site about growing roses, which would you rather find? A list of links that you have no idea if they are any good or not or if they even link to a reputable company? Or an informative, well written article about growing roses that has a link at the bottom for a company that, while you still don’t know if they are trustworthy or not, the person who wrote this content thinks so and they sure sound like they know what they are talking about. Which one do you think does better sales every month? Exactly. The site that uses articles.

This is the number one reason why you should be knowledgeable about the products you wish to sell. It will be a million times easier to write content that sounds like it was written by an expert if you know your way around your product. If a web surfer stumbles upon your site, finds your articles well written, informative and fun and then sees a link to buy a product related to the article, your chances of making money off of that customer go up 100 times. The big secret to affiliate marketing isn’t a magic formula or miracle catchphrase. It’s well written content.

There are even companies out there that will write content for you, for a small fee. It may seem like a silly thing to invest in on the surface, but once you see the hard numbers that show how much better affiliate sites do with content then without, you’ll be on board in no time flat.

How to write articles to boost sales

How to write articles to boost sales

If you’ve been checking out this series of articles, you’ve seen how important it is for any serious affiliate marketer to have good web content. Good content can mean the difference between someone clicking onto your site and clicking away a moment later and someone staying for a while and then clicking through to buy the product or service you’re trying to sell. But what if you just aren’t a very good writer? What if your mind is programmed for business, not English. Don’t worry, there are options for you.

  • Search the public domain. There are millions of articles that are currently in the public domain that you can use on your web site free of charge. A simple web search can bring up hundreds of these kinds of articles. And the best part is you can edit them, change them, alter them or do whatever you want to them so that they sound exactly like you want them to. You don’t have to worry about paying any authors or stepping on any toes. This is an excellent way to go if you don’t want to write content yourself.
  • You can pay companies to write content for you, and in most cases, it’s cheaper than you think. When you consider how important good web content is, paying someone a few dollars to write exactly what you need isn’t such a bad idea. Of course, some companies charge more than others and it always pays to shop around, but don’t shut yourself off to the idea of paying for content. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money and this is one of those cases if you don’t want to write your own web content.
  • Maybe the best choice of the three is to simply read and learn. Spend a week or two clicking around on the Internet and reading the web content on other affiliate websites. Take as much of that content in and then try to write in a similar style about the product you’re trying to sell. You don’t instantly become the best writer in the world this way, but studies have shown that the more you read, the better writer you’ll be. Experience pays and the more you know about how to write in this style, the easier it will be.

Having solid web content can’t be overstated. You will never have a truly successful affiliate marketing website unless you have good content. If you can’t write it yourself, you do have other options, but the best thing you can do is to learn how to write in this style. It will be an investment that will pay off time and time again.
