How to optimise your site with keywords that will get results

Despite Google having taken away large chunks of organic listing space on Page 1 in favour of paid ads, there are still opportunities for savvy businesses who want their piece of the Google Page 1 pie.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is more about building brand authority and trust through engaging, relevant content than using out-dated techniques such as keyword stuffing and link farming. There is no quick fix to getting a site to the top of Google. Authority and trust takes time to build. You have to earn your place on Page 1 of Google these days, so it’s best to steer clear of any SEO consultant who claims they can achieve this for you in just a few weeks. It will take months, if not longer, depending on the level of competition and the current authority score your domain has already accrued.

What role do keywords play in the SEO?

Keywords are a crucial part of SEO, but when we talk ‘keywords’ we are not just talking about single words anymore. User search behaviour has evolved over time and we now understand that typing in more specific search queries into Google will deliver more accurate results.

For example, if we want to buy a pair of trousers, we won’t just search on ‘trousers’ we will add more descriptive words such as ‘mens suit trousers’. This is called a long-tail keyword, and it is these more specific keywords that will help your site to gain rank.

How do we optimise for target keywords?

Firstly you need lots of content, but ‘content’ is defined not just the text on your website, but also image file names, image titles and descriptions, video titles and descriptions, page-urls, menu items, internal link text, meta titles and descriptions, html titles, blog articles and social content.

Although it is much better for SEO if a website has lots of body text, it doesn’t always present the best user experience, so you will need to be creative in the way you present your content and use your keywords.

The key to success is in using your target keywords across all types of content you create, and across all the channels you use, not just on your website.

How do we choose keywords that will present the best opportunity?

Undertaking Keyword Research will provide the insight you need. It will help you to maximise on opportunities to create a more strategic approach for your online marketing.

Analysing keywords will provide you with enough insight to choose a short-list of best-match search terms which are highly relevant to your business and will drive the most targeted traffic to your site. It is these keywords which will become your Focus Keywords for your site optimisation.

At Whizz Marketing, we run a Keyword Research Analysis Report prior to undertaking SEO and this identifies keywords which are likely to drive the most targeted traffic to your site.
Keywords are given a Keyword Effectiveness Indicator Score (KEI) which measures the number of global and local searches for each keyword and its bid competition co-efficient to get a great estimate of the effectiveness of that keyword.

The higher the KEI, the more effective it will be for optimisation, as the search volume is relatively high, whilst the competition is relatively low.

How to Optimise Your Site With Keywords That Will Get Results is an article written by Louise Cranstone, SEO Consultant at Whizz Marketing Services in Hampshire.
    We have been dealing with Louise at Whizz Marketing Services along with the web designer that she kindly recommended we use, we have had nothing but a great experience with Louise from her copywriting to SEO marketing strategies. We are grateful that Louise has been patient with us, ALWAYS delivered what we have asked of her and very quickly too, I am not always the fastest at getting back as I have to check in with two directors before I can make final decisions but again, very patient. I feel Louise completely understood the image we like to portray and the content that she wrote up for our website reflects this. Very happy, will be using Louise for many years to come and will recommend to anybody looking for similar services. Also, recommend the web designer that is recommended by Louise as they work hand in hand with each other perfectly. Brilliant communication, friendly and reliable and local too, so glad we found Whizz!

    Louise has a friendly, professional and efficient approach and is easy to work with. I don’t have time to manage the marketing of the business, so it’s great to have an agency I can rely on to do what is needed to keep the brand visibility high in Google and manage the social profiles.  The stronger online brand presence we now have has definitely contributed to the growth and success of my business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Whizz Marketing.

    Whizz Marketing was recommended to us by our graphic designer back in 2016. Louise very quickly understood what we wanted to achieve with the rebranding and new website, and worked well with the web developer and graphic designer to help produce a site that not only looked great and clearly defined our brand and ethos, but using her SEO knowledge, she made sure the site worked to attract the right audience, increasing our brand visibility in Google and driving targeted traffic.Louise has continued to provide dedicated support over the years as and when we have needed it. She has been very flexible in her approach and is very easy to work with. She has done a fantastic job for us and I would not hesitate in recommending Whizz Marketing.

    Louise at Whizz Marketing has been a great help to us in the re-design of our website and launch of a new marketing and social media strategy. Louise co-ordinated the website design, build and content on our behalf ensuring everything hit the latest SEO requirements. This provided the launch pad for a new blog and social media strategy, which Louise also managed on our behalf. We’re very happy with the new design and our website performance and traffic KPIs are moving in a very positive direction within a matter of weeks

    Whizz Marketing have more than met my expectations. I was struggling to get my website to a consistently prominent position on internet searches. They have put that right. They are not pushey, they are fairly priced, get results, and ideal for small local businesses. I run Yoga Mind and Body which is based in Camberley but I want to get good results in each of the three areas in which I teach: Deepcut, Hook and Hartley Wintney. I am now going to get Whizz to work with me on more generic local marketing in anticipation that it will yield more people coming to my yoga classes.Many thanks Louise and your team.Namaste, JohnstonJohnston Lowry Founder / Teacher / Yoga Mind and Body
