Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the way in which a web site can be designed to cater to the specifications of popular search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
When your site meets the criteria that these search engines look for your site's ranking and position can be dramatically improved when a related keyword or search term is entered in a search engine. Ultimately this means more traffic and frequenting visitors for your site.
Here at InfoWest, we take many things into consideration to ensure your site gets the best Search Engine Optimization possible. Some of the things below can really increase your visibility on the internet:
Web Page Content OptimizationWhen a search engine indexes your site, it uses complex algorithms and "robots" to decide how relevent your content is based on searched keywords. The search engine robot pays close attention to each page element, such as the title, keywords, descriptions, links and more. We make sure to design each page to fit the specifications that a crawling robot will look for.
Crosslinks & Internal LinksCrosslinks refers to information that have been posted on another website that links back to your own site. This is a very important method for search engines to determine if your content is valuable and, therefore, deserves a higher or lower rank. Not only are these links important, but the quality and source of such links need to be in focus as well. Internal links, or links that refer to content from within your own web site, help search engines follow important information that would be beneficial to your visitors.
Content UpdatesThere is almost nothing more crucial in keeping your visitors interested and returning for more than content that is constantly being changed and updated. Search engines understand this as well and put a lot of emphasis on sites that have changing content. Blogs, RSS feeds, forums, and news sections are all very important to keep your site fresh. We place a lot of focus on giving you, as the web administrator, the power and tools to keep your site updated and fresh.
