How do I obtain a better rank in search engines?
Search Engine Marketing (SEM)
SEM includes a range of techniques, including Organic Search Engine Optimization (SEO), site promotion, social media, pay-per-click, link campaigns, and other web marketing programs. SEM requires a balanced approach, and the goal is to produce real, qualified traffic for your site.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for Web Sites
Search engines remain one of the most cost-effective means of locating a website, particularly for a small business. Web developers and marketers know that simply registering your web site in search engines will not guarantee a good results. In fact, many popular web design approaches will hurt your search engine ranking. It is vital that the site design includes factors to assure good search engine placement. Blitz Media Design specializes in organic search engine optimization, and can help you get good results.
Designing a site to be search engine-friendly
There are specific steps required to design a website that will be effectively indexed by search engines. Good text content is the most important factor. Do not stuff your page with keyword phrases that make a page hard to understand; ultimately, you're trying to sell a human, not a search engine. And while it does not apply directly to search rank, we make your site user-friendly, so visitors find what they want and can contact you easily.
While keyword research to identify the most effective search phrases is essential, simply adding keywords to hidden META tags is not sufficient. In fact, most searches largely ignore hidden keyword tags.
A web page must be carefully constructed to be effective with search engines, and sites that frequently add current, relevant content will rank higher. Blitz Media Design avoids designing sites with frames or all Flash content as they can be detrimental to achieving a high rank in searches
Submitting Your Site to Search Engines
Avoid companies that promise to submit your site to hundreds of search engines each month – it is unnecessary, and a waste of money. Blitz Media Design specializes in getting your site found.
Ethical SEO Practices
Blitz Media Design offers an ethical, proven approach based on good content that will get your site effectively indexed by searches and generate significant traffic that should increase your business.
Blitz Media Design does not guarantee a specific position in search – no reputable party should. Those "Send us $99 and we'll guarantee a Top Ten position" offers are worthless, as they either:
- Use questionable tactics that can get you banned from search engines.
- Base results on search phrases such as your company name (if someone knows your company, search engine position is not important) or some other worthless criteria. For example, if you enter "Blitz Media Design" at Google, you'll see we're No. 1.
Blitz Media Design will work cooperatively to help you determine which elements should be part of your overall search engine marketing strategy.
