SEO - Things to Consider
Search engine optimisation presents many opportunities for your website. If you are in the business of selling or advertising online, then SEO is one of the best ways to get traffic and sales to your site.
So, here are list of things to consider before making a decision to invest in search engine optimisation.
What do you want for your website?
This is the fundamental issue before and SEO work is to be done on your site. Search optimisation is all about getting targeted traffic to your site. Aimless traffic can be expensive and time consuming. It is important to think about what kind of traffic you want and how it would benefit your site.
Where is your Client Base?
Think about your client base and how they will find you. If your products are searchable and have a can be posted or presented to another location, then perhaps you have a global client base for your product.
One of the best products of this type are online or digital products like ebooks or MP3s. These can be setup so they can be purchased online without any input from the owner.
If your business service or product has a local client base only, then an SEO campaign targeted to that area is necessary. Internet optimisation is the perfect tool for reaching customers in a targeted geographical area.
Examples of businesses that would benefit from this type of optimisation are dentists, accountants, lawyers and doctors clinics.
What is your Budget?
Of course, money will play a big factor in the type of optimisation campaign you want. Think about the profitability of your product.
There is a big difference between selling Sony Bravia LCD TVs online and personal councillor services to your local area. One is highly competitive and would require a substantial investment to gain traction on a global basis (with good keyword research, a profitable niche can be found). The councillor service is very niche and probably not competitive, so not such a big outlay needed.
