Here are some frequently asked questions about SEO in general that you may have:
What is SEO?
The acronym SEO stands for search engine optimization. SEO refers to techniques that aim to improve your websites visibility and appearance in organic search results for people looking for your brand, product, or service via search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
What’s the difference between SEO and SEM?
SEM stands for search engine marketing. SEM includes both SEO paid search marketing like Google AdWords PPC advertising. So technically, SEO is a subset of SEM. While a greater budget is required to run SEO and paid ads, an SEM plan can work wonders over time, as search data generated from both SEO and PPC, for example, can help strengthen both efforts.
How do search engines work?
Search engines like Google utilize web crawlers or bots that crawl your website pages by following links (like href and src) in order to then index those pages and files into their system. Website pages then appear over time, ranking for various search queries based on the data gathered by these crawlers over time and the complex behind-the-scenes algorithm adjustments to determine the most suitable website pages to serve up for user queries.
What is white-hat and black-hat SEO?
White-hat SEO refers to approved, best-practice techniques recommended by the search engines themselves. Black-hat SEO includes techniques that are not approved by search engines and can get your site penalized or banned from being indexed in search results. Black-hat involved tactics like keyword stuffing, cloaking, hidden text, and doorway pages.
How often does Google crawl my website?
Crawl rate varies by site and the number of links pointing to the site. A new site will not be crawled often, as new sites don’t have many other sites pointing to them yet. It will often take months of content creation, optimization, and link building to increase crawl rate and the number of ranking positions achieved in Google. There’s also a certain pace Google takes when it comes to shifting search results around. It could be weeks for some keyword phrase results, and months for others. Competition is also a factor.
How long does it take to see results from SEO?
Several factors will determine how quickly or slowly results will come. While this list isn’t totally comprehensive, factors include:
- The volume of content created within the website domain over time
- The quality of content in comparison to competing pages on the topic
- Level of mentions of your brand and related terms on other sites
- Number of links from reputable, related sites pointing to your pages
- How your content is internally linked together and structured
- How your content resonates with site visitors
- The age and size of your site and pages; weak vs strong domain authority
Do meta descriptions still matter?
Yes, they do! While not necessarily a direct ranking signal, meta descriptions provide a means to refine the promotion of a page’s search result and improve visitor clickthrough rate (CTR) into the page. Although keep in mind, Google may decide to generate a meta description for the page automatically, by pulling information from the page itself. Regardless, its still recommended to check competing page meta descriptions to gain inspiration, and manually create a well-aligned description for each of your pages. It’s also a good idea to test changes in description copy over time for those pages with low CTR performance.
Should I invest in SEO without a website or with a new, low-content website?
No, unless its a hybrid deal that involves content writing or development, or SEO consulting advice for upcoming plans. A website requires content to promote, optimize, and link to and from. Further, content-based ranking factors are becoming increasingly important to Google and other search engines in order to serve up the highest quality pages in search results. With a purely SEO plan, there won’t be much for an SEO strategist to optimize in the case of a thin-content website. However, it can help to consult with SEO professionals while developing your website to lay a smart foundation before or during initial content creation.
How much does SEO cost?
SEO costs can vary quite widely depending on the situation. Anywhere from bare minimum $300/mo to $100,000/mo. The cost of SEO depends on a variety of factors including:
- Size and scope of the project
- Business goals and timeline
- Size of a website, number of pages
- Number of locations to optimize
- National vs local vs e-commerce SEO
- Content and link building requirements
- Requested targeting, competition levels
How many keywords or links on a page?
There is no “right” number of keywords, incoming links, or outgoing links for any given page. The goal is to write and link naturally and comprehensively. Each page of your website should have a focused topic or explain a subtopic in connection with other pages. Although, searching the queries you want a page to ultimately rank for will provide you with insights into how your competitors are forming ranking pages on the topic.
For example, if you’re trying to rank for “Dallas construction services” or variations of this phrase, check out the search results for all the query variations that come to mind, and dive deep into their content to get an idea of how comprehensive your page should be, including the page title, subsections utilized, images used, page length, and number of internal links, to name a few. The number of backlinks or links pointing to the ranking page and how they are linked are also very important ranking factors that an SEO company can help you analyze with the right tools.
