Achieving online success is easy for some and difficult for others. Why is this the case you might ask? It all comes down to having cost effective tools that get the job done. This is true of most things in life and especially true when it comes to online marketing and search engine optimization. The good news is that there are very powerful SEO tools on the market today that cost very little to own or use.
The key with any piece of software is to know what you want it to do. A good place to start with SEO is with web site analysis. Make sure you’re using software that can help you analyze your website and make the necessary changes necessary to improve your search engine rankings. SEO tools that neglect on page factors can only get you so far. So make sure the tool you use can analyze on page and off page factors.
Use tools that can provide a solid understanding of on page optimization factors. Even if you can build links to your website quickly from high ranking websites, your search ranking may be short lived without adherence to the proper on page factors. Consider the basic factors like your meta tags, page load times, and use of keywords throughout your page. Make sure the online SEO tool you use can run an analysis on these factors for you on a regular basis.
Search engines like Google favor sites that load quickly. The reason why this is so important is because page load times are an essential factor in user experience. Consider two sites that offer valuable information. The first loads in about 4 second and the other in 12. Which one provides a better user experience? It’s a simple question, the one that loads quickly. Consider page load times when working to optimize your site. There are plenty of tools that can help you calculate load times quickly.
Submitting your website to major search engines can be one way to improve the timing associated with getting your site listed. I’ve used site submission whenever a new site is promoted and I need it to be scanned quickly. That said, I don’t believe that site submission is a strong aspect of any SEO campaign. This is because if your site is already structured the right way, it won’t take long to be indexed by a search engine.
Work on establishing in bound links to your website. You want sites to connect to yours in the form of inbound links. This is essential because it shows the major search engines that your website provides a good deal of value to consumers. This linking also carries the benefit of providing page rank value and assigning information that is attributable to where your site is listed on search engines.
If doing business online, you can find plenty of tools that can help you validate your code, evaluate on page factors, determine the speed of your website, help you submit to search engines, and build in-bound links. Chance are, if you want a single tool that can do all of these things, it wont be free. But as I like to say, you get what you pay for.
Before you spend all of your time trying to learn about search engine optimization and generating SEO campaigns, research search engine optimization tools that can help you to succeed online. Using software to do much of the heavy lifting can enhance your results and quickly allow you to achieve what would otherwise take months or years.
