Website Navigation And SEO

The most important element of any website or blog is CONTENT. Unique content is always going to be king. The second most important is NAVIGATION. A well organized website allows your visitors to find what they are looking for quickly. If a site has a poor navigation system it reduces the likelihood potential customers or clients will stay on your site. Well structured navigation will also help the search engines to index the pages throughout your site.

Planning your website structure prior to developing can help eliminate the need for restructuring later on. To create an effective navigation system ask yourself these questions first:

  • Who am I building the site for? (Clients, Customers, Informational, etc)
  • What do I want to accomplish by building a site?
  • Where do I want my visitors to ultimately end up on my site?
  • When a visitor shows up will they find what they need?
  • Why did a visitor come to my site?

These questions, when answered, will help you determine what type of content you need/want and help you organize the content through navigation.

Navigation does not just refer to menus on your website or blog, it also refers to links throughout your site in the content or articles themselves. These links are part of your “Internal Linking System” and are essential to a well structured website. When setting up internal links think about the key words and phrases people will use to search for you or your products and use these within your links to assist in SEO also.

You may also want to work “outside the box” and come up with one or two unique marketing strategies that  can be specific to your industry.

An Important Note:
When writing articles don’t forget the five (5) basic principals of Writing, Who, What , Where, When, and Why. These will give you a good initial starting point for article writing.

Having a well constructed time frame for accomplishing tasks will assist you in actually getting these tasks done in a timely manner. Set aside a routine time to write articles, social network, and general interaction online for marketing purposes.

Analyze your efforts

Knowing whether or not your techniques are actually working is critical in determining whether or not you should continue with the strategy after the time frame you ave allotted. Using an Analytic software can assist in tracking these type of statistics.

    I Need a Blog Why?

    Thanks for visiting. Please comment below.

    Search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing love blogs. As the search result showplace evolves and real time search takes center stage, it has become more important than ever to have a repetitive online presence.

    Search engines are constantly changing their algorithms to bring YOU – the searcher, the most relevant up-to-date information possible. As with social networking being a real-time format for information, so has blogging. A blog is nothing more than a web log (hence the name blog), of information pertaining to a specific subject.

    Using a blog for SEO purposes can be very beneficial for both your readers and your search engine positioning. By offering well written, informative, and unique content to your readers, they benefit by having  the information they are looking for, and your search position benefits by having more traffic on your site. It’s a win win situation.
