SEO is dead? Think again! SEO is alive, thriving and can increase your revenue by 50%. Search engine optimization is a marketing tool that is used to increase your website’s organic traffic and search engine visibility. There are a lot of technical and creative elements that contribute to your website traffic and rankings. The aspects of SEO range from the words on the page to the way that your site links to other web sites. And sometimes something as simple as, making sure your website is structured in a way that search engines can index easily.
By creating a good structure, you can use the content you’ve written that has attracted links from others, and use your site’s structure to spread some of that “linkjuice” to the other pages on your site. On a commercial site, that means that you can use the quality content you’ve written to boost the search engine rankings of your sales pages too. – Joost de Valk

The three major search engines Google, Yahoo, and Bing create most of the web traffic. Even though social media creates a lot of site visitors, search engines are unique in the type of traffic that they create for your website. Search engines provide specific items or products that visitors are using to find your web site. Example: Recently I was shopping for a new piece of computer hardware. As I begin to search for the product, I used a variety of keywords that allowed me to narrow my search for the exact item that I was looking for. With the proper information, I can Google the part number and zip code to find a local distributors that stocks the item. This is the same process that millions and millions of people do each day to expand their shopping circles. If the search engines can’t find your website, you are missing out on a magnitude of financial opportunities. Very often we work on client sites that are missing some of the basics such as; bad site structure, lack of key words, missing descriptions, slow loading times and invalid site maps. As a developer, we see all of these items as a critical piece of the puzzle when we are designing and developing your new website. However, if you are a website owner that is on a budget or just isn’t ready to invest in a custom product, you can take advantage of a few tools that will allow you to maximize your assets.

Google took major steps in the last couple algorithm updates to remove duplicate content from search results. Sitemaps are becoming more important as website publishers become more protective of their content. It’s common for publishers to syndicate their content with a formal agreement, but the original publisher doesn’t want to be penalized for duplicate site content. With the proper sitemap submission, you can establish your stake as the content originator. Based on your website’s content, it is possible to have several sitemaps that are being submitted to the search engines.
