What Is B2B Search Engine Optimization?
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the practice of increasing the number of qualified visitors and prospects to a website by positioning it high on the list of search engine results for a user’s search. Think Google Chrome.
At Lform Design, we don’t sacrifice web design for SEO or vice-versa. Instead, we take a holistic approach to the development of your website and marry aesthetics with functionality to achieve a powerfully optimized website that delights the user and Google. Our approach integrates these three important website factors: usability, relevancy and authority.
It’s important to construct a strong site architecture with a clear navigation. By optimizing the organization of information and pages intuitively, new visitors will have a clear path toward their goals, and returning visitors will quickly establish proficiency in the use of the site. The end result is a powerful one: Users will have a favorable experience and search engines will be able to index the website promptly.
It’s important to recognize that user experience matters not only to users, but to Google. Therefore, the website should be designed and coded as a means to benefit your user, and should consider these factors:
- Faster Site Speed
- Proper File Naming & Structure
- Unique Content as Opposed to Duplicate Content (Canonicalization)
- Fix Outdated & Broken Links
- Cross-device Compatibility (Responsive Design)
Google search engines are designed to display the most relevant results to a user’s search query. How relevant is your page content to a user’s search?
At Lform, we work strategically to make sure your site—on the front and back end—are optimized for high relevance scores, one piece of the SEO puzzle.
Relevancy takes into account the following:
- Meta Tags: Title & description meta tags
- Alt Tags: Alternative text attached to an image
- Headings: H1 and H2 tags
- Body Text: Properly chosen and applied keywords
- Cross Links: A link from one page on the site to another
- Content & Content Strategy: Consistent publishing of quality content
Trust is important to building relationships offline and it is no different in the online world. Google needed a means to establish credibility and authority, and it does so through link building and social media. The more external sites link to your site and the more your website content is shared on social media provides Google with these cues that your content is a trusted source, which in turn helps your authority rankings—another piece of the SEO pie.
