Tips and Tricks for Creating Excellent Long Tail Keywords – Part 1

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

Last month, we talked a little about the importance of long-tail keywords. This month we will dig deeper into the details on how to create excellent long tail keywords and phrases.

Tip #1 – Be Specific

Building upon last month’s example of our South American freshwater tropical fish importing company, you learned not to use the phrase “tropical fish” because that was too general of a term, and didn’t accurately reflect your business. A more suitable keyword phrase was “South American freshwater tropical fish” for your business.

Use SEO for Graphics to Boost Your Rankings

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

One of the most overlooked aspects of site optimization is failing to optimize your graphics for SEO. A good website design for SEO includes images on every page, and within every blog post, to help attract and keep the attention of your users. The problem is, without a little help, Google can’t really “see” these images. Without text, Google has no idea how to process and categorize an image in terms of SEO. But this can be easily fixed by implementing these best practices.

What is a “Long Tail” Keyword, and Why is it Important for SEO?

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

Before we talk about the definition of a long tail keyword, we need to discuss the term “long tail” itself. Long-tail has been in use as statistical term describing frequency distribution since 1946, but has been recently popularized by Chris Anderson, author of the book The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More. This book describes how stocking a large number of products with low demand or have a low sales volume can collectively equal the sales of all but a few very popular single products over a relatively long time period. This is how smaller or specialty companies can compete effectively against large, high volume businesses. The same concept applies to keywords.

What is SEO Attribute Optimization?

Posted by Michael Wilson - Search Marketing Manager

An SEO attribute is the “behind the scenes” language embedded in the code that a user typically will never see, but makes the site more friendly to the web crawlers that review the site determine what it is and what content it contains.

Defining your SEO attributes is a quick and easy way to improve your search engine rankings. The important thing is you make sure that you use the keywords that you have targeted as the focus on your SEO attribute efforts.
