SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
How can I show up on page one of Google? How can I build brand authority? How can I spend less on advertising? SEO is your friend if you’re asking these questions. SEO is a long-term endeavor, but if you’re willing to spend the time the benefits are long-lasting and will drive sales and customer trust in your brand.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization
SEO requires a long-term approach for results. However, if you follow a consistent SEO strategy you will rise above your competitors and your business will reap the benefits. What is SEO? SEO requires a multi-faceted approach to digital marketing best practices. Best practices include videos, blog articles, social media postings, a fast mobile responsive site, site structure, and an excellent strategy for content development.
YouTube is the second largest search engine and gets over 30 million visitors per day in the US. Videos already make “up 64 percent of all internet traffic, according to Cisco’s 2014 Visual Networking Index, and it’s forecast to grow to 80 percent of all traffic by 2019”. Forrester estimates that one minute of video equates to 1.8 million words of text in the message communicated. With correct titling, description, tags, and transcription you have an excellent opportunity to rank. Google will boost the ranking of a page containing video because a video is rich media that is rewarded by the search engines. Adding video to your social pages will increase your social interactions and video likes will boost the overall SEO of your digital videos.
Social Media: While social media may not effect your website ranking, social media profiles are often amongst the top results in search listings for brand names. Social media provides potential customers to see the personality of your business. It is imperative to keep your Google+ page up-to-date since it is prominent for searches of your brand name. Social channels are search engines, and within those channels, potential customers are searching for businesses and products.

Quality Link Building is an essential component of your overall SEO strategy. Every business should list their business on relevant directories. Paid links can have a negative effect on your site, so avoid the easy, quick links. Reciprocal linking is great; again relevancy is key. High ranking blogs and press releases build up link juice, and you should actively seek out links that have natural anchor text. Commenting on forums, with relevant posts will provide valuable links. Again, the key is relevancy; you cannot game the system.
MOBILE RESPONSIVE WEBSITE
If you do not have a responsive mobile site Google will penalize your site and will demote your site from mobile search rankings. If your site is not mobile responsive, there is a good chance your site does not have a modern appearance, and while it may still rank on a desktop, the user experience will not be top level.
Often overlooked and quickly uploaded is correctly identify images. Make sure to add relevant keywords to your image titles and alt tag that define your pictures. Try to keep images below 70kb to not slow down your site, or use web-safe options to reduce file size. Use original well-shot photographs for the best user experience.
