Search engines like Google and Bing invested heavily in returning relevant and useful search results to their users. Now, with mobile GPS and browser based geo-targeting systems, search results are more accurate than ever. Simply put, when a local customer is looking for your goods or services, you need to be able to be found to make the sale.
There’s no secret formula to getting your business to the top of search results. In the past, keyword rich content and spammed backlinks could get a site to the top of the rankings. Now, these tactics are almost certain to get you penalized and kill traffic to your site. As search engines evolve and find ways to combat spam tactics, relevant quality websites gain an advantage.
Uber Motif Search Marketing
To rank well in search engines, your site needs to be the answer to user’s search questions. You need a trustworthy website, with accurate information, targeted towards the right audience. The three main factors search engines use to gauge a quality website are:
User experience is one of the strongest signals search engines use to rank websites. If your site doesn’t keep users interested, search engines will start thinking your site isn’t relevant and adjust their rankings accordingly. The key data they are collecting are time spent on your website, bounces, and exit percentage. If users are continually landing on your website and returning back to Google to look elsewhere for answers your website will be penalized and removed from the listing.
Über Motif looks at a website from the outside in. The first stage in creating a quality website is making a website that is dedicated towards the target audience. We focus on keeping the user engaged by creating a lightning fast website that is easy to navigate and understand.
“The goal of a search engine is to return the best possible result to the searcher. If the search engine fails to return the best answers the user will go to another search engine to find the answer they need.”
Things that you need to consider for User Experience:
- Can the user easily navigate between pages?
- Does the site load fast enough?
- Is the website appealing enough to keep customers interested and clicking through to the next page in the sales process?
Ease of Use
If you are familiar with your website (or made it yourself) you can sometimes overlook the degree of difficulty it takes for someone to navigate your pages. If the site does not blatantly lead the user to the next step in the sales process the customer will turn to your competitors. Clearly defining the sales process is often overlooked. No one is going to take time to figure out the next step on their own and it is important you lead them to the sale. Über Motif looks at the following:
- Defining Sales Process
- Removing Non-existent (404) Pages
- Readily Available Contact Information
- Main Menu Navigation
- Sidebar and Footer Navigation
- Internal Link Structure
Have you ever been frustrated with a website that takes too long to load? You’re not the only one. The longer customers wait for a page to load, the more likely they are to go elsewhere.
Having a robust hosting environment behind your site is essential to success. To get a lighting fast website Uber Motif evaluates:
- Current Hosting Environment
- Code Structure
- Website Caching
- Image Size
