Website Optimization - Search Engines

"Optimize for best ranking results
from your web page content!"

Balance between on-site and off-site optimization...

It is common that search engine rankings go up and down all the time. Many webmasters are unsure what they have to do to keep their websites at the top of the search engine result pages. There are two main factors that influence the rankings of your web pages.

What is on-site and off-site optimization?

High search engine rankings can be achieved with on-site optimization and off-site optimization. On-site optimization refers to the factors that you can control on your website: text, links, keyword density, etc.

Off-site optimization refers to the ranking factors that are usually out of your control. The most important off-site factor are the links to your website.

Search engines use these two main factors to determine the rankings of your web pages.

Some webmasters focus only on on-site optimization. They optimize the text of their web pages, they try to get the right keyword density, optimize the web page title, etc. but they don't care about links.

Other webmasters think that links from other websites are the only way to get high search engine rankings. They spend several thousand dollars to buy links from other sites without fully optimizing their web page content.

You can achieve good results with both methods. However, you'll get even better results if you combine both on-site and off-site optimization.

How do search engines rank web pages?

Optimized web page content helps search engines to find out what your website is about. If the optimized content of your web pages shows search engines that your website is relevant for a special search term, your website will get high search engine rankings for that search term.

If more than one website is optimized for the same search term, search engines have difficulty to determine the best website. That's where links come in. In general, if more than one website is optimized for the same search term, the website with the best incoming links will get the best ranking.

The higher the competition for a search term, the more you need both optimized content and links from other websites. Using only one factor works for unpopular search terms but as soon as there are other sites that compete for the same search term, you have to optimize both factors.

What does this mean to your website?

Optimize your web page content and get links from other websites to make sure that your website is in a good position for high search engine rankings.

Getting more customers and more sales through on-site and off-site search engine optimization requires some time and work. The results are worth the effort.
