Starting a search engine optimisation campaign can be a daunting and worrying thing to do, especially if it's your first time or it's a site you simply have to get things moving for. There are some areas that if you get right from the beginning can really help to make sure your SEO campaign will be a success and it is vital that you make sure you get the preparation completed before you begin with the SEO practises.
Below, we look at the things we consider absolutely vital to make sure you get right before you crack on with your successful SEO campaign.
Set Your Budget - If you are going to employ the services of an SEO company it is vital you work out how much you can afford to spend on their offerings. Most good companies will tailor a package to suit your budget. It really is so important you do not spend more money than you can afford because if an expensive campaign means the end for your company financially then it will just be wasted money. It is far better to begin with a realistic budget for a few months and then up the amount you spend once you see the success of the campaign, although this will take some time in most cases.
Work Out Your Content - A successful SEO campaign relies on content; content is the king when it comes to good traffic and a successful website. You need to make sure you can set aside enough time to write articles, press releases and blogs, because to get to the top of your game you need to work so hard on content writing and producing quality information. Many people overlook the importance of good content in an SEO campaign, thinking that a few links and Twitter posts is all you need, but, sadly, this is so far from the truth its unreal.
Identify Areas Of Focus - Another common mistake that some webmasters make is to not identify the areas that they really wish to concentrate on. SEO is made up of so many factors, link building, article submissions, press releases, social media and many other things that you simply can not concentrate on them all. Focus on the ones you know you can achieve, for some this will be loads of good content for article submission and for some it will be making videos that you can reap the rewards of social media traffic from.
Set Out Your "Dream" Keywords - Many webmasters forget to do the vital thing when they are beginning their SEO campaign and this is to work out and identify the keywords they are really interested in improving the rankings for. Obviously, every site owner wants to be top for the really big earning keywords, but sometimes you have to look at the lesser used but easier to rank for keywords and the long tail keywords that will get you immediate traffic. It is much better and more effective to focus on the lesser used keywords than the most used in the early days, because ranking for these top keywords will take much longer and will be easier to aim for when your site has been around for a long time.
Look At Your Site - Search engine optimisation begins at home and by this we mean that if your site is poorly optimised then your SEO campaign will be a complete waste of time and money. It is the equivalent of spending thousands of pounds advertising your new shop and then forgetting to order any stock, it is just not realistic to drive all this extra traffic to your site and then see people quickly leave because it's just not right. Make sure that before you begin your campaign your site is as good as it can possibly be in terms of navigation, structure, content and loading time, because it has to be spot on to really make the most of the extra visitors your campaign will hopefully send to you.
