  • 10 ways to improve user experience | Geonet Blog
    to be mobile friendly On April 21st Google updated their algorithm This update was dubbed Mobilegeddon by webmasters Not only is responsive design a crucial ranking factor it is also critical for improving user experience Your website should be just as easy to use on a mobile device as it is on a desktop We re afraid tiny text and cluttered pages just won t cut it 3 Fresh design and easy navigation Visitors will judge your website on face value so you have about 5 seconds to make a good first impression Its vital that your design is fresh clean and suitable for your target market and your menus should be easy to navigate The world of web is instant and that is what your visitors expect So a potential customer won t be thrilled if they can t find what they re looking for quickly and efficiently Top tip Know what s hot and what s not A shabby website won t convert 4 Avoid nuisance pop ups and adverts Did you know that Google use bounce rate as a ranking factor It s a known fact that website pop ups increase bounce rates The odd pop up is acceptable if you re looking to increase revenue and sales leads but they can easily become a nuisance Top tip If you really must use a pop up use it sparingly like this voucher code below Image Shopify 5 Use sticky content When we use the term sticky we are referring to media content such as images and videos on your website We call it sticky content because it encourages visitors to spend more time on your site After all it is easier to sit back and watch a video than read a 500 word document right Did you know Google also consider the time spent on site as a ranking factor Note This type of content is also more likely to gain social shares and more engagement 6 Link out to useful content Cross link content from other sources that are related to your article website or industry Not only is this a link building technique used by webmasters but it provides even more relevant results for your visitors The more helpful you are the greater the likelihood of your visitors returning 7 Specific purpose built pages For example if your business is located in a big city centre or large scale industrial estate it may be difficult to find you A simple Find Us page with an integrated Google Maps feature could be beneficial to your customers Image Pinterest 8 Social signals Social media signals help promote trust in your brand and company From social buttons to your company s online profiles to social feeds and share buttons These all encourage engagement Note When it comes to Google social signals are used as a ranking factor 9 Calls to action Be contactable and accessible at all times Calls to action CTA are essential for converting your website

  • The death of keyword rankings - Geonet Solutions
    Completely different ranking positions Some were the same it s true but others were out by anywhere between 1 and 25 places from each other It is no longer possible to create a report of where you are on Google and have it be accurate anywhere other than the machine it was printed on In this sense it s not possible give you an accurate reading of your rankings All keywords may have declined in our region where we produce the report but risen in your region and that could be where you re targeting improvements Keyword targeting is no longer a viable technique Back in the day 10 years ago it was possible to target keywords and key phrases also known as hero phrases by jamming webpages full of that phrase or word Google now recognises this as a deliberate attempt to inflate ranking positions and so it penalises sites that do it Therefore your content must be unique and of high quality well written to ensure that your website is seen by Google as a valuable resource It s no longer possible to trick Google into giving you a ranking for something for which you offer no content For instance our website is geared towards web design as it is our primary service We also offer SEO packages However if we didn t have a page on SEO and ensure that we deal with it in our overall content we wouldn t rank for it no matter how many times we crammed the keyword into the footer If you offer a service and you offer it with quality you ll rank but the idea of targeting particular keywords by dropping them throughout your copy is out dated and of very little use Given how Google now constructs it s algorithm based on a complex mix of the overall authority of your domain name your website as a whole and of the individual page in question it s far more helpful to view your entire website as a complete entity rather than collection of pages to target individually As such keyword ranking is archaic and unhelpful for both agency and customer Instead overall keyword reach is a far more helpful metric In short pick a core service or proposition and target that Then by measuring how many times your site appears in search results in the Top 5 across variations of this keyword and overall rises and falls in actual traffic coming through to your site from Google organically Not only does this actually quantify the actual results you re getting for your SEO which keyword ranking doesn t in terms of actual traffic it also allows you to perform additional metrics Additionally it helps weed out over analysis of rises and falls in keyword rankings which can happen for a myriad of reasons These are not important what is important is the overall trend and keyword reach helps you see these trends rather than momentary fluctuations It s

  • Bust Myths, Not Rhymes: Search Engine Optimisation - Geonet Solutions
    It s an ocean An enormous resource filled with millions of websites Try stamping on an ocean You ll make a little ripple but it takes a long time for that ripple to filter through You need to keep stamping to send those ripples and changes out across the ocean surface And logically the larger the effort the larger the displacement If Google simply registered changes instantly and factored them into the results then they would fluctuate wildly Google s algorithms change slowly for a reason Several reasons in fact it stops sites from disappearing due to technical outages it allows sites to implement changes strategically it rewards organic and steady growth All of these factors increase the authenticity of Google s results If you wanted to Google your regular hotel in London to make a reservation but another twelve hotels had rammed their sites full of those keywords would you want to see the legitimate established result plummet pages down No That s exactly what Google s algorithm aims to do produce the best results for people based on their search term That opens up another question Are the results above you better than you It s an uncomfortable question that may have humbling answers But if your site has less written content than your rivals less relevant content to that search term less quality copy then Google will rightly rank people above you unless you excel in some other area for example social media domain authority backlinks People have spent far too long trying to trick Google by inserting bits of code keywords cramming their site full of whatever they can find to rank higher And sometimes this works until Google catches up and penalises the site This is exactly what happened in this instance It s important to remember that SEO is not about trickery and it s not about loads of links and it s not just about a nice website It s about all of these factors coming into play Take an offline example of a shop If you launch a new store on the high street you could have the best shop in the world but if you paint the outside and the windows with thick black paint then no one will come Also if you have the best shop front in the world but nothing inside you re not going to be well respected You need both for your business to excel Offline and online It s about hard work investment perseverance and in the same way that businesses must respond to market pressures and economic environments sites must respond to updated search algorithms and practices or be left behind We must challenge the conception that SEO and websites and all things digital are easy They should be easy for the customer or the user but just because they re digital doesn t mean they re always easy for the owner The same hard work and investment is required to deliver results Similarly
