Okay, you’ve got a website, it’s up and running….and maybe you’re wondering why the traffic to same ain’t so hot…well welcome to the club SMB owner! It should be no surprise that just getting the site up and running is not the “end” of that marketing strategy…the next part of that enterprise is driving traffic to same. And there’s the rub!
While this blog post is not about how to create and develop a full SEO Campaign to drive that traffic, what I wanted to talk about are three great infographics I’ve found to position my own rationale on same, so let’s chat about them in no specific order…
Okay, first my conclusion – that as of today, Google et al still value infographics and yes, that value can result in tons of IBLs (incoming back links) that can help build a set of serps that will rise in the rankings. There. Said it. That’s how I feel. That’s what I think. And yes, my clients have the serps to prove it…
But is that what others think too? And do they have any evidence to mount that infographics do NOT help SEO? Well, let’s see….
Okay, it’s been a rough week – yeah, I know for you too… but especially since we’ve had everything from client fires to put out, new clients to pitch, clients to wine & dine (if that wasn’t you don’t worry, your turn is coming, eh!) and yes, doing the normal SEO practice work all week long too!
That said, I did find a couple of real infographic gems and would like to share same with you and surprisingly a couple of them are on WordPress & SEO….so let’s take a look/see at what I’ve found this week, shall we?
Well, Thursday night really, but hey this is the only chance I’ll have in getting my normal Friday blog piece done and posted…because of my total commitment to our StartUpWeekend Hamilton:2 that begins tomorrow up at our Mohawk College and runs for three days straight!
Just finishing up a brand new week and very chuffed about a brand new car dealership client too and with our normal Canadian SEO practice workload up a bit…. I’ve not got a ton of time today to expound on the following great infographics that popped up this week….but here they are, eh!
From the folks over at www.teknet.org.uk, conceived by by Joe Davies, and the design was by Rebecca Troth…this great piece is entitled “The Different Types of SEO Client” and how you should attract the best!
And yes, they do list a Perfect SEO Client and I’m proud to say that all of our own SEO clients hit that metric, spot-on! Thanks there teknet…great piece and will worth the click, eh!
Yup, it’s only Thursday evening and I’m tired of watching amateur cooks face off over hamburgers on the Food Channel and with Friday being a full day down at our Innovation Factory for Mentor Committee intakes and meetings and then Cafe iF – I’m going to miss the chance to add a new post here to our blog. So….here’s our Fabulous Friday Infographic….and boy do we have a real winner to lead off with!
David Mihm, noted SEO practitioner from the Pacific NorthWest, is one of my own SEO personal role models. This man knows SEO. Period. And as he also runs the 30+ of us who help him with his Annual Local Search Ranking Factors Survey, he knows Google Maps/Places too. And then there’s the getListed.org online research group that he founded and runs – and did I mention the whole #localUniveristy group too? Okay, you get my drift…if there’s a guy to emulate, David would be dang close to the top of that list, eh!
Okay, you know your stuff. You’re either a leading edge (or not so much) web developer or you’re an SMB who keeps his/her ear to the tech ground listening (or not so much either) for the latest in how to build a site that converts leads into buyers. You’re aware of the best practices of all of that – and yet your site just isn’t performing as good as it could be. Sound familiar?
Ahh….Friday again…and as usual it’s been a heck of a week in SEO land! Many many small issues arise throughout a week of working on SEO Campaigns for clients and this past one was no exception. As many of you know, I visit about 200+ sites each and every morning that are news related, opinion related, blog posts, forums, bulletin boards and even still newsgroups looking for the latest “bleeding edge” SEO tactics and this weeks visits once again pointed out a few real winners!
Seems like a trend, whereby I find great infographics during the week’s drilling down on over 200+ sites/blogs/boards/forums daily and then saved up, I write on my Friday posting about some of the best Infographics I’ve found…least that’s the way it seems to be working out lately! And if you think that this might actually be an easy task, then guess again…as the number of SEO- oriented infographics each week continues to grow and grow…most are fine but as I point out on Fridays, there are some sure winners in my weekly searches! And here they are this week!
Yup, Friday again and it’s been a week with some real challenges all of which turned into victories! We signed up two new SEO clients and made a start-up investment too….and already it’s Friday! So on to our infographic roundup for the past week or so…
First up today, is the great one on SEO Audits in 20 Minutes, from the folks over at InMotion.com! As you can see by the image here, they’ve tried to capture what to do and how to do it in a method that tackles one of the most necessary yet under-utilized aspects of Internet marketing: the SEO audit.
Okay, the weeks almost over and we’ve seen some great new items this week that need to be shared about online marketing and of course, on SEO too! While that might seem like a daunting task, i.e. the capture of a whole week’s worth of marketing data – I must explain that with over 170+ blogs, forums, boards and polling sites read daily, it’s harder to “cut” an item out of this short Friday list than to keep them all to share…but here goes! Got your learning cap on?
Hello all…and yes, I know that I’m more than a bit late for todays week-ending blog piece…but we’ve been pretty busy with all the start-ups, mentoring, coaching and yes, we’ve also begun the Xmas season with last nite’s big party at McMaster Innovation Park with our own Innovation Factory Holiday Soiree!
And I had fun. No two ways about it….I met lots of start-ups that I’ve coached or mentored or who’ve taken our own “Go-To-Market” seminars and chatted with them all!
