Organic SEO for Local Gold Coast Businesses

Wouldn’t It Be Great For Your Business To Show In The Number One Rank Spot In Google

The holy grail of online web marketing is said to be to Rank by organic means. By natural we are often inferring you have come to rank on page one, number one position, simply by operating a business and being online. In practice this is very rarely the case. Most businesses who have an online presence in Google search results are using some version of SEO technic to ‘game’ Google or Bings ranking systems in some manner for their benefit. There are many techniques which are employed to gain a favourable organic search ranking by SEO professionals.In general terms there are Whitehat SEO Techiques and there are Blackhat SEO Techniques (Note: There is also a sub set of Blackhat SEO which are illegal techniques, but they are unlikely to apply for most legitmate businesses and are not something we practice). Depending on your goals and business risk profile Whitehat SEO and/or combination of Blackhat SEO techniques would be recommended. We will illustrate the difference between the two on this page.

Note: We operate with full disclosure and always act in the best interests of our clients and their goals. Blackhat SEO is often misunderstood it does not mean ‘deception to clients’ it is just another type of marketing, which can be highly effective for its purpose. What a Blackhat SEO will do is look for the loop holes in search Engine algorithms and use those loop holes to help improve a websites rankings.

With the addition of multiple highly local content pages and Google My Business Mutli location entries we can target your rankings to the street if needed and have your business ranking in multiply location without being penalised for duplicate data or the expense of running many websites for each location. Location SEO targeting is a great strategy even for state, national and even internetional businesses. While it is a technicque that Google states to be considered spammy and not technically a true whitehat SEO practice, it is highly effective and when done in a measured customer focused fashion, it has little to no risk of penalisation. We would recommend it to any business looking to improve their rankings locally and overall. Adding location specific pages and content will boost your whole site by virtue of increasing its link juice to its main pages via the sub localty pages. This works by linking suburbs to Cities, Cities to States, states to countries following through to the specific services pages, then linking to your main pages. This is often contrary to what website owners and online marketing professionals do, as most people tend to syphon off juice by linking out from their target pages. Consequently, they lower the SEO Juice to the pages they want to rank. Even worse sometimes we see linking going out to other websites from key pages. The correct process should look like the diagram below and this is the proven method, learned from real world testing from the affliate world, we will use to rank your website pages. A common mistake many webmasters and marketers make is, they actually have the diagram the other way around and are weakening the link juice to their main pages or worse exporting it to someone elses webpages.

eCommerce Search Engine Optimising

Effective e-Commerce search engine optimisation is a holistic process focusing on; brand awareness, optimisation of the category and product pages, user experience, follow-up, remarketing, Off-site optimisation, Social Media, Influencer, monitoring, Pay Per Click, measurement and server performance. While SEO produces the best return on marketing dollar invested each aspect of eCom marketing enhances the other overall.

Our process of Optimising focuses on four areas of marketing development:

How do you increasing website traffic?

Without traffic, your e-commerce site is effectively dead in the digital ocean. Therefore building a steady flow of traffic is key to succeeding. However, now all traffic is equal and that is why we do extensive research to identify your most profitable type of buyer/s. Then we construct content specific to improve the likely hood of attracting that type of customer.

With organic SEO we look at trends in search data and exact match keyword matches to make your on page content and supporting content exactly what users are searching for. Then when they do find your website on page one, it will be very rich and engaging content experience to answer exactly what they searched for while staying focused on selling your product or service.

Likewise, for pay per click marketing, we focus on the procuring new customers into your sales funnels via direct product offers, giveaways and answering trending metrics based on searches or social media data. We identify where certain customers are in your sales funnel and handle them accordingly to maximise conversions short-term and over the long-term. While we agree there is good profit to be made from the now buyers, we have also found the difference between a small loss, break even, small profit and the highly profitable business you want will be made or lost in the eCommerce sales funnel follow-up. Consequently, any investment in driving traffic needs to have an equal investment in follow-up.

Social Media is the new big search engine. The number of people using social media regular in Australia is mind blowing. Every company should have a social strategy which encompasses; short term pay for sale, brand building, long term value adding and user engagement. We love the practices of social marketing leader Gary Vaynerchuk and implement his method of value, value, offer and craft it into the marketing plans of all our clients. To be successful in social media marketing you need effective sales funnels with a long term and short term view. The reason is, many of your new followers will be very early in the sales process. Therefore, you need a method of offering them value and earning their trust through automated systematic methods. Without a sales funnel process in place, what seems like a very low advertising cost can quickly turn into a money pit and this is often why business owners disregard social media marketing as being effective. When it was actually just the execution which was flawed.
