  • Social Media vs. SEO: Which is Better? – Business 2 Community

    SEO vs. Social Media

    Social media vs. SEO, which one do you think is better?* If you are a solopreneur or are running a small, or even medium-sized business, your marketing time and dollar are precious. It’s important to ask: With limited resources, what’s more important—SEO or social media?

    The answer, of course, is: Both!

    Let’s look at a few aspects of social media and SEO and how they work together and, unfortunately, sometimes against each other. That way, you can make smart choices with your investments in time, money, and effort.

    SEO or Social Media Optimizing Your Headlines

    Headlines are important, both for social media and search engine optimization. But how do you choose which one to prioritize? On the one hand, you want something catchy that will draw people in on Facebook, but on the other, you want your headline to contain keywords so that it will show up in search engines. Which route do you take?

    Recommended for YouWebcast: 5 Essentials Sales Managers Need to Know to Crush your Quarter

    The workaround:

    The answer is, again, both. While optimizing your headline simultaneously for social media and search engines is not ideal, it certainly forces you to get creative. And if you’re really feeling stuck, you can always make your headline a listicle. Yes, there’s a reason why so many businesses are using them other than it just being a trend!

    Fake Accounts and Spammers

    The business world can unfortunately get pretty ugly. And for a fee, there is never a shortage of people who are willing to fight dirty for you. What does this mean for your SEO? The time and money you’ve put into boosting your website’s search engine results may have been all for naught if your competitor is sabotaging your SEO behind your back.

    One of the ways these “negative SEOers” attack is with social media. They create fake social media accounts representing your business and troll your blog posts with numerous comments, getting you flagged as spam. Because social media platforms have so much page authority, they are likely to represent you on the first page of your search engine results (SERP).

    This happened recently with the fake Hillary Clinton Pinterest account created by Republican Presidential candidate Rand Paul and his team. Pinterest took down the fake account almost instantly, but the for most of us, it’s not that easy. We don’t have large staffs that are constantly on the look out for this kind of problem.

    The workaround:

    Do regular searches of your business both through search engines and social media platforms. If you find an account claiming to represent your business, report it immediately. Facebook is particularly strict about enforcing it’s “no fake accounts” policy, so do be sure to take action. Be sure to monitor the comments on your blog posts, as well. If you don’t have time to monitor the comments, you shouldn’t have that function on your site to begin with. While not ideal, disabling comments is much safer than being classified as a spam site.

    Social Media Search Engines Trumping Traditional Search Engines

    Considering so many people are using their phones these days instead of their computers, there are many instances when your SEO won’t count for anything–unless you have a local search strategy.

    People also search for things within Facebook, they click on hashtags in Twitter and Instagram, and they look for videos using YouTube’s built-in search engine. Which means that if you’re not optimized for both search engines and social media, your site is not going to pop up.

    Another threat are the very large sites, like Thumbtack, that have a lot of page authority, that take up space in the SERPs. For example, if you search for Kalamazoo painters, you will see Thumbtack’s top 10. This trend will continue to grow, I’m sure.

    The workaround:

    Get social! Businesses do not have to be on every social media platform in order to be optimized for social media. In fact a strategy like that would be redundant, time consuming, and costly. That said, you need to be conscious about the SERPs, look at what your competition is doing, and consider creating profiles on every competitor site.

    Do a little research about your target audiences. Where are they most likely to search for your business? For example, if you’re doing a lot of B2B, then LinkedIn is an obvious choice. Figure out where your audiences are searching for the products you offer, and get on those social media platforms asap.

    An Increased Workload

    Your company’s social media sites will show up in the results when someone searches for your business. It is not enough to simply be on social media—you have to make your social media sites look as good as your website. This means that you have to put time and money both into SEO and social media management, which can add up pretty fast! If you don’t, your company is not going to look credible, especially to new customers or partners.

    The workaround:

    Integrate your social media with your website. Post key content from your website and your strategic partners. Use the same color schemes, logos, images, etc. This will save you time and money and will also make your business streamlined and professional. And for heaven’s sake, get the image sizes correct for each social media site. A logo that is not sized properly is cringe-worthy. Your Facebook page may be the first site a new customer clicks on, so make a good first impression and hopefully the next click they make is to your website.

    Creating Shareable Content

    Ideally, a company creates smart, witty, enticing content that continuously goes viral on social media. But the reality is that making your content SEO often stifles these opportunities. You have all these keywords and phrases to plug in, and the repetition of it all can make a reader tune out.

    The workaround:

    Split your content down the middle. Any blog post or article on your website that goes viral is going to increase your web traffic, which will bump your Google ranking, thus increasing your SEO. At the same time, it can be hard to tell when a post will go viral, so you also need posts that that focus on SEO. The holy grail, of course, is finding a writer who can do both at the same time. This may cost you a little money, but you’ll get a great return on your investment.

    Having read all of that, what do you think? Is SEO better than social media? Of course not. Despite the workload, businesses that are serious about digital presence need to create a great brand, deliver awesome user experience, and incorporate (among other digital marketing strategies) both SEO and social media into their marketing mix.

  • Why You Need a Online Business Investment

    Why You Need a Online Business Investment

    Are you thinking about buying or investing into your own online business?

    As you are most likely aware, there are lots of choices out there for setting up your own online business, some are good, some not so good, some risky, some are a no brainer.

    Not only that, will you be taking a look at what type of business model to run with and which makes the most sense for you. As well, the amount investment involved, what market your in, your sales funnel setup, and type of products your going to be offering, and the entrepreneur’s mindset, all factor into a final business decision and how it operates and profits.

    There are a number of ‘plus factor’s to go with an online business over an offline one, with several head turning advantages.

    Recommended for YouWebcast: 5 Essentials Sales Managers Need to Know to Crush your Quarter

    Here are what makes a online business a very lucritive choice, and why you need one…

    1. Less overhead

    If your online business is established properly, there will certainly be less costs that go along with it. This is specifically real in cases where physical products, distribution, lease agreements and other expenses are non-existent. And an online business only has to deal with domains, hosting, type of website/blog platform, advertising, and a branded sales funnel, coaching, are some of what you need, but still far short of the costs of a offline business.

    There is a distinct difference with online businesses, where list building, branding and content development are of greater concerns. Content creation, SEO, social media, lead generation, blog syndication and other marketing channels might need substantial time and will almost require investment. The resources needed are going to be substantially less than that of a brick-and-mortar business with tangible products.

    Of course, minimized overhead commonly equates to greater revenue and profit margins. There are a myriad of distinct money making approaches with online businesses, and this is another aspect that makes the internet even more appealing, not to mention the freedom that comes from the super highway business.

    2. Very adapatable

    Marketing is among the most crucial parts to any company, and believe me it’s “always” going to get more and more sophisticated. Exactly what makes marketing online more appealing than offline marketing is that tracking and determining your ROI is a lot easier. By benefiting from the abundance of tools and information offered, you can adjust quickly, and alter your marketing on the fly.

    If you have 2 similarly great ideas and you’re not exactly sure which to choose, you can divide test your advertisements, e-mail projects, sales pages, order types and other efforts, through A/B split testing.

    By making the most of tools such as Google Analytics or Linktracker, you can keep an eye on real time stats and click throughs. If one traffic method isn’t really working, you can try another. If conversion rates are low, you can make some tweaks to your site, to boost conversion, or improve your sales funnel for better conversions.

    In addition, targeting certain demographics has actually never ever been much easier, specifically with the increase of social networks marketing. You can specify the audience you wish to target, in exacting information, and start to market to individuals that are more than likely to be thinking about your product and services providing.

    There are a significant number of marketing channels you can take benefit of. Blogs podcasts, videos, social networks (Facebook/Twitter), solo ads, live mastermind events, ebooks and a range of other marketing tools can all be made to your target audience.

    Simply put, all these aspects enable more versatility. With an online company, you can rapidly recognize exactly what is working and exactly what isn’t really, and modify your approach on the fly.

    3. More flexibility

    With an offline company, you are typically tied to a physical place and a lease. Sometimes, there are benefits to doing business in a particular part of the world, however the included versatility of an online company is appealing to numerous entrepreneurs.

    With an online company, if you have to work from your own house, you can. You can likewise do your work from almost throughout the world, as long as you have a reputable Internet connection and not some crappy WI-FI at a resort.

    Passive income is a draw for lots as is the time and freedom with your own online business, and your business runs 24/7, even while you sleep.

    A reputable online business might not even need employees, but can have 1 or 2 people full-time to deal with others tasks that you don’t have time for.

    If you wish to have the ability to sustain a lucrative business while checking out other endeavors, or if you wish to have more time on your own and your household, the versatility of an online company will certainly be a gem for you.

    4. Low Risk

    A wise businessman will certainly watch out for taking risks that would wind up costing them bigtime in the long run. You cannot always choose a winner each time, however by doing your due diligence, you can reduce dangerous and risky financial investments. Due your due dilligence when looking for a business opportunity to promote, and don’t settle for less, or get conned into some internet scam, there are lots of those out there.

    For the many part, online businesses are lower risk overall than brick-and-mortar business. Starting an online business does not need to cost a lot, and since of its intrinsic flexibility, it is possible to turn a losing business into a rewarding one in a fairly short period of time. But costs are not so low that it turns the internet into a misguided “One approach to marketing” works for all mentality, simply isn’t the case, but a real business to turn a real profit still requires real funding, that’s the dirty truth.

    This does not totally get rid of the possibility of failure, however it does indicate that, if essential, planning and beginning over isn’t really that tough. There are a range of methods making money online, and discovering the ideal fit might be a matter of testing.

    Online businesses are likewise more liquid than you may believe. There is a lot that can enter into offering a company that is more geographically-dependent and operationally complex. Due to the fact that online companies usually aren’t tied to a place, and they need less work to preserve, there are a great deal of purchasers trying to find the chance to buy a company that’s successful from the box.

    Eventually, a online company is less risky than a offline company in the long run, and can be far more profitable, overhead costs and profit potential are the real advantage of a online business.

    Starting a brand-new company vs. Buying an existing one

    You’ve now had the possibility to find out the main benefits of buying an online business over an offline business. You may still be questioning whether you must begin a brand-new company or buy an existing one.

    One drawback of starting a new online business is the cost and time frame to implement your products to the marketplace, as opposed to an existing business which has all that done and ready to go.

    Starting a brand new online business can be both costly and time extensive. Not just that, however your understanding and experience in any provided field will certainly determine how well you can run a online business.

    If you don’t have the expertise, then find it, the most successful business owners have good mentors and systems in place that help them drive sales and reach their goals.

    Right here are some pretty good reasons a online business is a wise choice:

    – Can change and adapt your marketing much faster

    – Life changing

    – Can easily manage

    – Runs 24/7 365 days of the year

    – Can work from anywhere in the world

    – Have more time, money and freedom and pay far less taxes.

    – Ability to create 6,7,8 figure incomes with the right product and the right system in place.

    And now you see why an online business is a strong financial investment.

    Every entrepreneur and businessman needs to think about just how much time they have, and just how much money they’re prepared to run the risk of, or how much they will lose by not taking action with the right business.

    As you start to think about the choices readily available to you, you will certainly see that online businesses are unbelievably versatile and profitable. Buying and or investing a online business can be beneficial for lots of factors, as it will certainly enable you to take advantage of the resources readily available to you and plug right in and start making money.

    What kind of business are you interested in? How much time, money and freedom are you willing to sacrifice to create a online business?

  • Using Content to Grow Organic Traffic from Scratch – Business 2 Community

    Lee Thompson, an accomplished photojournalist, climbed the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Jenario in May 2014 to take the first ever selfie, atop the statue of Jesus which went viral overnight. This gave his business, The Flash Pack – a young start-up based in London which provides small group tours to busy professionals – a huge kick-start when they were actually contemplating shutting down the business. Flushed with success, they approached Envigo to help them in strategizing the growth of their organic traffic and improve the conversion rate of their website. Envigo, a full service digital marketing agency that has expertise in organic search, content strategy, web improvements, usability, outreach and digital engagement was delighted at the prospect of doing so and started work on the project immediately.

    “The foundation of our strategy for their business, which has a very niche audience, was to first identify the user persona of their target audience. This involved conducting surveys and interviews of their customers, carrying out detailed research, and listening on social media and data analysis. Finally, we constructed a well-defined persona of their customers with information about their interests, lifestyles, and behaviours apart from the usual demographic data.” said Saurabh Kumar, director of Envigo.

    The next strategic step to increase their organic traffic was, to research keywords with good search volume specific to the business, the offering, and the landing pages. All the website content including meta-tags and subsequent blogs were based on the user persona and the identified keywords for the business. Within a day of implementing these changes on their website content, their keyword visibility score jumped 3x on Google.

    Blogger outreach was another approach to reach the target audience and increase visibility of the website. The marketing team of Envigo approached travel bloggers with specific interest groups and high impact based on the size of their following and the degree of trustworthiness.

    Because of the incessant efforts of The Flash Pack founders to delight their customers, the business earned many positive reviews and testimonials on their website and other online social forums, which helped them even more in gaining visibility. All the networking events, talks, and discussion panels attended by them also paid off and led to an increase of their digital footprint.

    The results were fantastic. The organic traffic of the website, for the first six months, increased by 556% as compared to the previous year and 74% as compared to the previous period.

    The Christ the redeemer selfie earned them the ‘best viral campaign of the year’ award by UK Social Media Communications and the business was one among the top ten semi-finalists in the start-up category at Richard Branson’s Pitch to Rich competition 2015.

  • Top 10 Local Search Ranking Factors – Business 2 Community

    local_search_engine

    In 2013, Moz conducted an exhaustive Local Search Ranking Factors survey which, among other things, listed dozens of “foundational” ranking factors that might/should concern you as a local business owner hoping to draw maximum traffic to your website. Search engine optimization is an extremely complex business, and all those factors matter. You can’t just tweak a few things and expect fabulous display results. But you can’t just throw up your hands and give up, either.

    So let’s look at results of the 2013 survey, and then take a look at highlights from 2014 to see how things changed after Google’s Pigeon update. (You may recall that this local search algorithm change, released last July, was designed to display local search results that are more “useful, relevant and accurate,” based on factors more closely aligned with traditional web search ranking signals.)

    These were the top 10 local search ranking factors as of late 2013:

    1.     Proper category associations

    On your Google+ Local page (now folded into Google My Business), you need to choose a primary business category. You can’t invent your own, you have to select from Google’s list. Other local business directories require this, too, but their lists may differ so be sure to pick the most relevant category for each listing.

    Recommended for YouWebcast: 5 Essentials Sales Managers Need to Know to Crush your Quarter

    1.     Physical address in city of search

    Google returns “packs” of local display results based on the city name appearing in the search itself – Denver dentists – or for the city where the search device is based. If you’re physically located in the city of search, you’ll do better. If you do business in nearby towns, you can try to rank better for them via organic search.

    1.     Consistency of structured citations

    These are formal mentions of your business in online local business directories. Inconsistencies that can hurt SEO include variations in your business name, street address or URL or an incorrect phone number or use of a toll-free or tracking number.

    1.     Structured citation quality/authority

    Make sure you’re listed in top-quality directories and indexes first, then worry about adding more later to expand your visibility (see #6 below).

    1.     HTML NAP matches place page NAP

    Google likes consistency, so be sure your name/address/phone number (NAP) on your Google My Business page matches the NAP on the linked web page. (Your NAP should be consistent everywhere it appears.)

    1.     Structure citation quantity

    The greater your competition in town, the more structured citations you need to rank well. You can build more by searching for additional directories and indexes relevant to your business.

    1.     Website domain authority

    This factor, which has multiple ingredients, indicates the overall likelihood your website will rank well against other websites in search results. SEO and human value factors are more closely aligned these days, so shoot for a user-friendly, well-optimized site and top-notch content.

    1.     Individually owner-verified Local+ Page

    This is now Google My Business; businesses should not only have a presence, business owners should formally verify that fact with Google.

    1.     City and state in Places landing page title

    Again, it’s now My Business; your city and state should show in the title tag of the web page linked to your GMB profile.

    10.      Proximity of address to centroid

    Google decides how locally relevant you are based on the distance between your address and the “city center,” a moving target depending on your type of business. You have no control over this.

    So what changed as of late 2014?

    • Together, Link Signals (factors like inbound anchor text, linking domain authority and quantity) and On-Page Signals (factors like NAP presence, keywords in titles and domain authority) were weighted at more than 50% in determining localized organic search results.
    • For pack results, Link Signals and On-Page Signals totaled only about 25%, whereas Review Signals (quantity, diversity and “velocity”) carried about that same influence and External Location Signals (things like NAP consistency and citation volume) were more important than each of these other three categories.

    The 5 individual factors that gained most importance since Pigeon were:

    1.     Website domain authority
    2.     Proximity of address to the point of search (searcher-business distance)
    3.     Quality/authority of inbound links to domain
    4.     Quality/authority of inbound links to landing page URL
    5.     Physical address in city of search

    The 5 individual factors that lost the most importance since Pigeon were:

    1.     Proximity of address to centroid
    2.     Physical address in city of search
    3.     Individually owner-verified My Business page
    4.     Quantity of structured citations (IYPs, data aggregators)
    5.     Proximity of address to centroid of other businesses in industry

    If you have a lot of competition, these 10 factors will help you most:

    1.   Website domain authority
    2.   Consistency of structured citations
    3.   Quality/authority of inbound links to domain
    4.   Quality/authority of structured citations
    5.   Proper category associations
    6.   Quality/authority of inbound links to landing page URL
    7.   City and state in landing page title
    8.   Physical address in city of search
    9.   Quantity of native Google Maps reviews (with text)
    10.   Quality/authority of unstructured citations (newspaper articles, blog posts, etc.)

    And these are the top 5 negative ranking factors – the mistakes that negate your other positive efforts to improve local SEO:

    1.     Listing detected at false business location
    2.     Incorrect business category
    3.     Mis-match NAP – tracking phone numbers across data ecosystem
    4.     Mis-match NAP – tracking phone number on My Business landing page
    5.     Mis-match address on My Business landing page

    In order to effectively build your local search rankings, you may want to start with an SEO audit.

    One of the 2014 survey participants summed it all up best.

    He noted that while local businesses must pay attention to key positive and negative ranking factors, “it is equally important for brands to be conscious of the user experience. If a brand appears in a pack of listings, the user is left to determine which of several listings they will interact with, all potentially offering the same types of products and services. Enticing imagery and robust listing content can increase the appeal of a brand and its listing to the user.”

    Hear, hear.

  • Party Hard And Win SEO – Business 2 Community

    What if I told you that 85% of SEO drivers happen off page? What if all that keyword stuff you’d dedicated so much time to only accounted for 15% of its total impact? Would that feel like wasted time, or would you suddenly feel liberated to refocus your efforts?

    We uncovered a recent statistic from Moz (so you know it’s good) that says exactly this – that your SEO is much more dependent on external factors than certainly most SEO so-called-experts would dare to admit. I mean, I STILL receive emails from link-dump websites claiming they can get me top rankings, because they claim some sort of mega-domain authority I know they don’t have, acquired through spurious techniques I know don’t work. I know this because the same was true two years ago.

    And anyway I’ve got my top ranking, thank you very much. I got it through hard work. But going back to that stat, as with most happenings in the world of content marketing, you can either see the evolution of SEO as a restriction, or you can see it as an opportunity.

    I say it’s party time

    SEO is like a party. I know, right? How frickin’ stoked are you now?

    As the party host (i.e. the content manager) your job is to make the party awesome. You need to make an invite or flyer (i.e. your content), occupy a place where guests and passers-by can find you easily, and create a fantastic atmosphere within which your guests can easily mingle, get drunk and find the toilet (i.e. the user experience of your website).

    Recommended for YouWebcast: 5 Essentials Sales Managers Need to Know to Crush your Quarter

    So what do you put on your invite? Well, keywords, mainly. (I know it sounds like this party’s getting more boring by the second, but bear with me.)

    You’ll talk about what your guests can expect – what kind of party this is (rave / outdoor / indoor / glamorous / utter filth), where it is (bar / warehouse / car park / mum’s basement), the music genre you prefer (drum ‘n’ bass / hip hop / house / Mongolian throat singing), how late you’re open (12am / 6am / till fiftieth complaint / till arrival of police), abundance of cake, whether girls get in free before 11pm and how acceptable white trainers are.

    In other words your invite / flyer / keyword content categorizes you, such that those people looking for a party this Saturday are under no illusions as to what’s happening at your place. Keywords do the same thing for your digital brand, for the benefit of Google, Bing, et al, and the users that search with these tools.

    Then you create a user experience that works. You want people to navigate their own way around, feel relaxed and unpressured, but also informed, and to immerse themselves in the world of you at their own pace.

    It’s not what you know; it’s who knows you

    So far, so successful. But this brings us to my point – you can promise the world and deliver the goods, but it’s all a bit moot if no one turns up.

    Of course, the better promoted your invite is – on social media and/or by some paid promotion – the more likely people will turn up. But on the other side of that coin, you need buzz, excitement, the talk of the town.

    You want friends telling their friends about you. You want influential figures shouting about how damn skippin’ hot your party is going to be from the rooftops. You need the networks – the ties – i.e. the links.

    And I’m not talking about those bogus links from link-dump opportunists; I’m talking about the big players in your industry. Clearly if you’re running a hip hop party, then a link to your party from Kanye West’s website will be pretty bloody valuable (one presumes); a link from Bob’s Cleaning Company Clapham might not have the same gravitas.

    So, now we know that the majority of your SEO clout comes from external influences, you should be encouraged to foster relationships (and links) with the respected people in your field. And what better way to kick off a lasting relationship than with a sick party full of killer content and awesome keywords?

    Don’t answer that.

    Essentially, our advice is to take this as another reason and opportunity to publish unique, high quality, authoritative content that people of influence want to link to. Do that and you’ll be going to parties every weekend.
