Other Common SEO Mistakes To Avoid

SEO

We have seen some common SEO mistakes in our previous blog. However the list is far from over. Here is a list of another 5 important SEO mistakes and how to avoid it.

INFOGRAPHICS_SEOMISTAKES2

Poor Content

Content is the foundation of every SEO strategy. Poorly written or copied content is a definite NO if you want to top in SEO results. Google never appreciates duplicate or copied content and never indexes such pages. Every search engine prefers unique content that is valuable for the readers.

Finding content from other websites and tweaking is also practiced in the industry. However, this may affect your trust as a company and damage the reputation in the long run.

Non-Unique Title Tags

There are websites with same title for different pages. Some CMSs auto-generate such titles. A title tag is the most important part of an SEO and it should be unique so that a search engine crawler can index it correctly. A correct title tag tells the searcher that the content is relevant to what he is looking for.

Non-Unique Meta Descriptions

Meta descriptions are HTML attributes that describes content of websites to the search engines. Using the same meta-descriptions on different pages will not do any good. Meta descriptions should be descriptive and persuasive within the 160 character limit, so that the web page does its sales pitch on its own.

Non-Credible Links

Adding links from low page rank sites creates zero credibility.  A link from an authoritative blog from your industry adds value to your content and boosts your page rank and the other diminishes your page rank. Hence avoid non-credible links from your website and value quality more than quantity.

Not Optimizing Right Keywords

Optimizing wrong keywords or keywords phrase is a common SEO mistake. Going for single keywords generic to the industry may bring traffic but might not actually convert. Using keyword phrases of three to four words specifies what you are selling. A little bit of research using keyword tools can help you identity what people search online. The more the consumer becomes aware of the service/product the specific the search phrase they would use. Highly specific multi keyword phrases are easier to rank and yields specific search results compared to generic ones.

The list is not exhaustive and SEO works well only when all the parts of it work together synchronously as parts of a watch work.

Common SEO Mistakes To Avoid

SEO

After doing all the market research, coming up with better keywords, placing a planned SEO strategy, optimizing links and expecting things to happen overnight and all that happens is a slight improvement in your page rank. You might end up in page 3 or 4 of the search engine result page (SERP) and then no further and this even takes months of work achieving.

SEO is a slow cook process and takes a little effort in bringing the desired results. This can be improved if you focus on avoiding some common SEO mistakes.

Keyword Stuffing and Non-Keyword-Focused Content

Keyword stuffing is the process of inserting too much keyword for the sake of adding keywords. Such policies will be red flagged by the search engines. Too much keyword in the content will also affect the quality of the content to the reader. Keywords are an important aspect in SEO strategies and should be focused and targeted to specific content for better results.

Another mistake with keywords is that, not focusing on any keyword or topic. If your content is not specific and touches too many topics, inserting relevant keywords should be an issue. When you try to optimize for multiple keywords from diverse services it will yield no results and raise red flags.

Broken Links

A broken link is a hyperlink in your content that points to a dead page which is either removed or not points to the intended location. Overtime sites accumulate broken links and these become natural as sites get older. However this is a great nuisance from the visitor perspective. You are clicking on a link with the notion of reading what is on the other end and gets a 404 error. Google downgrades rankings of such websites. Hence regular checks of links are needed to keep the links under the tracker.

Not Using Analytics

Generating traffic is one use of SEO. But generating massive amount of traffic without conversion is of no use. Tools like Google Analytics can be used to monitor which phrases yield better traffic and which phrases yield better conversion rates. Analysing the trends can enable the SEO specialist to target the specific phrases in the website that return better conversion. The highest traffic generating keyword may not be the highest converted one (a generic keyword can yield better traffic with less conversion). Using tools like analytics is helpful in finding that unique phrase which may yield better conversions.

Not Optimized for Local Search and Mobiles

Pages which are not optimized for mobile devices will not reap the benefits of SEO. Recently Google has a policy to check websites for its mobile compatibility. A mobile incompatible website may not be accepted properly by a search engine. In the present scenario most of the searches are starting from a mobile device and hence the website should be mobile compatible.

Similarly local searches should also be optimized for better visibility around target demographic. A local business with global keywords may not yield desired results. Local keywords, phone numbers and address should be optimized. Services like Google My Business should be considered important and the website, address and contact information should be properly updated.

Design and Errors

User experience is one great factor which forces visitors to stick onto a page. An improper design, or grammar & spelling errors, or slow site loading speeds etc. will diminish user experience. A site with low user experience will also go low in Google SERPs. Slow loading images, too much ads, heavy JavaScript and CSS files, improper web format, all these minor factors indirectly affect SEO performance. Hence such simpler things should be corrected before the SEO strategy goes live.

The above are the very basic prerequisites every SEO should take extra care of and along with the tried and tested SEO techniques.

The Impact of Social Media on B2B Marketing

b2b_268277417-thumb-380xauto-3624

Social media is considered one of the major components of B2B marketing. For some reason most of the B2B companies have lagged behind B2Cs in the adoption and effective use of social media. It remains a surprise to see that a lot of the companies still underestimate this important marketing component. Social media marketing is more than adding Twitter and Facebook buttons to your website, but a planned comprehensive social media marketing strategy can boost your business better than any other marketing technique.

How Can B2Bs Benefit From Social Media?

Social media marketing may not exactly be for converting leads into sales or to demonstrate the ROI per post. Rather, it focuses on how B2Bs can utilise the social media platform to inform the content it creates, and deliver content that is relevant to its market needs, and the latest trends. Also to utilise its own employees to boost its media exposure, and the way it is perceived by the market at a more personal level.

Here are some ways social media presence benefit a B2B brand:

Brand Awareness and Loyalty

Social media is an effective way to get your brand name out in front of people who are your potential target. Companies that are not using social media to popularize their brands are missing out on a valuable opportunity to connect with the mass. Social media strategies for B2Bs are slightly different from that for a B2C. Hence content sharing and interactions should be catered based on the targeted business industry you are serving.

Search Engine Traffic

Search Engine Optimization is the best way you could drive more traffic to your website, but social media sure plays its role. SEO requirements always change and it needs more than regular update of blogs, optimizing title tags and meta-descriptions. Google and other search engines also take into account the social presence of a brand. The rankings are influenced by strong social media presence as most of the top brands use social media. A good brand identity in the social media will give your brand a legitimate and trustworthy face among the target, also bringing good traffic to your website.

Social media help in better conversion of leads. It is mainly because of the humanisation effect. Brands are more humanized by social media interactions, which make other users to interact with the company and share their thoughts, suggestions, complaints and business proposals. Social media also has higher lead-to-close ratio than outbound marketing. A high number of social media followers improve your brand value and trust.

Social media also has other benefits. Social media is a far cost effective marketing method. It also enriches customer experiences and insight. The Power of Social Media is evident from the recent news ‘How Elon Musk’s Tweet Made Panasonic $800 mn. Richer’. A simple tweet from the Tesla CEO has earned share values of Panasonic Corp to rise by 6.4% making it richer by $800 million and a subsequent loss of $580 million to rivals Samsung.
