These days, most website owners recognise that to achieve decent search engine rankings (and the important traffic they generate), unique, fresh, keyword rich content on their website is important.
You also probably understand that the content should be focused on keywords that are relevant to the products/services that you provide. However, it can be a challenge to work out exactly what keywords you should be targeting, and what types of content are likely to be best for optimising your website.
You could probably rattle off a list of what you think are the important keywords for your site – but how do you know that these are the phrases that your potential customers are likely to be using on Google ? Often, the “important” keywords that owners come up with are terms that they use in the day to day running of their business – which may be quite different to the ones used by customers.
Keyword Research is Critical
Keyword Analysis is one of the first (and most important) activities that you should undertake when optimising your website. Effective Keyword Research makes use a variety of tools and techniques to identify and analyse actual search volumes of keywords (for searches undertaken by real people on the internet) that are relevant to your “important” keyword phrases.
An initial goal of Keyword Research is to identify those keyword phrases related to your business that are searched most often. These high volume keyword phrases (which may very well include keywords that you probably hadn’t thought of) provide an excellent basis for defining the structure of your site, and inspiration for creating content.
Explaining “How To” undertake Keyword Research is way too big a topic to cover in this brief article, so:
but make sure that you do something towards identifying your primary keywords today !
At a recent Brisbane SEO Meetup a roundtable session was held where the 20 or so attendees got to highlight some of their favourite SEO Tools. The list below is a collation of some of the most popular SEO Tools discussed. Not all of the tools listed here are necessarily tried and tested – although most are tools that are fairly widely used by SEO Professionals, there are also others which were suggested at the meetup that have been included here for completeness.
I’ve grouped various tools into different categories (alth0ugh some tools do belong in multiple categories). Most of the tools listed below are free, some are paid, and many of the paid services also offer a free (cut down) version of the tool as well.
Keyword Analysis Tools
- Google Instant – an often overlooked but very quick and easy way to check for high volume search keywords
- Google Keyword Tool – Allows you to enter trial keywords or a website name. Shows list of related search counts globally and locally
- Google Insights – A great tool for for showing trend data – you can compare search volume patterns across specific regions, categories, time frames and properties
- Google Analytics - Looking at your own analytics data is a good way to see which keywords are already working well
- PPC Data – setting up a PPC campaign and analysing click and conversion rates can be a very effective (and quick) way to get data about high converting (as opposed to high traffic) keyword phrases
- Your Customers – Talk to your customers to see what keywords they would/did use to find your business
- Brainstorming – talk to friends/colleagues to brainstorm related keyword phrases (don’t just rely on the keywords that you think are good)
Many of the “traditional” Keyword Tools used by SEO Pros (such as Wordstream, Keyword Discovery and Wordtracker) were felt to be of limited use to Australian users – although they can be very useful for very detailed analysis, because their data is sampled, and largely USA biased, for the most part they were not considered to be useful for Australia based keyword analysis.
Firefox was widely accepted as the web browser of choice for SEOs – largely because of it’s plugin capabilities , with other browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Flock etc) mainly only used for compatibility testing.
- SEO for Firefox – considered one of the most comprehensive (and useful) of the many SEO plugins available
- Chatzilla – useful IRC plugin to ask people for advice suggestions on SEO
- Firebug – possibly for of a developer than SEO tool but VERY handy for debugging HTML/CSS and lots of other web page/ browser based issues
With WordPress becoming increasingly important as a blogging platform / Content management System (CMS) we felt that we simply had to imnlcude some of the many SEO related plugins for WordPress
- All In One SEO- one of the original and still arguably best general purpose SEO plugins
- Google XML Sitemaps – auto generates a special XML sitemap which will help search engines to better index your blog.
- Google Analytics for WordPress – easy setup your Analytics code, allows you to track your blog easily and with lots of metadata.
- SEO friendly Images – automatically adds alt and title attributes to all your images.
- SEO Smart Links – can automatically link keywords and phrases in your posts and comments with corresponding posts, pages, categories and tags on your blog.
- Sexy Bookmarks – adds an attractive social bookmarking menu to your posts, pages, index, or any combination of the three.
- WordPress SEO by Yoast - all in one SEO solution for your WordPress blog: SEO titles, meta descriptions, XML sitemaps, breadcrumbs & much more.
- And also a number of Search Engine Friendly Themes got an honourable mention – e.g. StudioPress – Genesis Theme, and Thesis
Pretty much the ONLY tool discussed was of course Google Analytics. Way too much about this tool to cover here, but it is likely to be the topic of a future Meetup
We were pretty pleased to discover that no-one was particularly interested in PageRank, and that even our clients had started to get the picture that PageRank in itself is not something worth obsessing about. However, ranking reports can be a quick and easy way to monitor the impact of SEO strategies over a period. Many of the SEO Suite based tools (see below) offer rank tracking tools and
- Yahoo Site Explorer – once recognised as the single best way to get fairly decent backlioni data on your competitors site – is now seen as no longer reliable and on it’s last legs as a useful tool
- Webmaster Tools – the most accurate source of backlink data for your own site – not available for competitors though (dammit !!!)
- Open Site Explorer – SEOMOZ’s famous Link Popularity Checker + Backlink Analysis Tool
- Majestic SEO – perhaps the worlds most comprehensive source of backlinks information
- Market Samurai - a Suite tool (see below) that offers some good backlink reporting
- Backlinkwatch – enter a website URL to get detailed information about quality and quantity of backlinks pointing to the site
- Blekko – a “search” engine with a difference. “slashtag” capabilities extend the info that Blekko offers – try www.yourdomain.com /seo
Conversion Optimisation Tools
There are hundreds of specialist tools that can be sued for Conversion Optimisation – here are a few that were mentioned :
- Google Website Optimizer – Google’s free website testing and optimization tool makes it quick and easy to implement A/B split testing and monitor and measure results.
- ClickTale - discover everything visitors do on your website. Visitor Recordings, Mouse Move Heatmaps, Heatmap Suite, Form Analytics and more…
- CrazyEgg – simple and affordable heat mapping tools that allow you to visually understand user behaviour
- Screenr – web-based screen recorder makes it a breeze to create and share your screencasts around the web. From a CRO perspective this is a great tool to record test users behaviour – including their commentary on what/why they are doing thing.
SEO Tool Suites
- SEOMOZ SEO Tools – A comprehensive (and sexy) array of SEO tools : Link Building, Competitor Analysis, Keyword research, Optimisation, and more….
- SEO Powersuite – offer a range of SEO Tools from LinkAssitant – including Rank Tracker, Website Auditor, SEO Spyglass and Link Assistant
- Raven SEO Tools – Internet marketing tools for SEO and Social media (tends to be higher end, more sophisticated/complex tools for SEO professionals/agencies)
- Market Samurai – Great general purpose and good value tools for internet marketing and SEO
THE Most Important SEO Tool of All ??
And the single most important tool for any self respecting SEO is of course… EXCEL. Excel is critical for Collating, Filtering, Analysing and Sorting the reams of data that most SEOs accumulate in their day to day activities.
This is the 2nd post in a series from a recent recent Brisbane SEO Meetup where a round table discuission on Link Building was held. The first post – Link Building Strategies – The basics – covers some of the fundamental principles of link building. This post gets into the nitty gritty of specific hints, tips and strategies for creating backlinks to your website.
Link Building Strategies
Many website owners feel that getting links is very difficult or that their website is not good enough to get backlinks. Link Building can be a time consuming process, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be. Here are some of the Link Building Hints and Tips that were raised at the recent Brisbane SEO Meetup :
1. Make sure that your website is link worthy
One of the fundamental strategies for getting backlinks (and probably the easiest way to ensure natural, relevant and quality link building) is to ensure that there is actually something on your wbesitye that is worth linking to.
If you stumbled across your site, would you link to it ? If not, why would anyone else bother? Here are some questions that you should consider to help you determine what type of ciontent could lead to oitheres wanting to link to you :
- What types of sites do you link to?
- What types of things are relevant/interesting/linkworthy for your niche?
- What makes your company unique? (How are you different to your competitors?)
- Do you offer giveaways or competitions?
- Are there any news or stories about the people in your company?
Create pages/posts on your website that deal with the type f content that others will find useful content and they are more inclined to link if you ask – you also might be pleasnetly surprised at how many links you start to get without even asking for them.
2. Directory Listings
One of the quickest and easiest ways to start a link building campaign is to add links to some of the many online business directories. Theer are many many dirtectories out there, some are general, others might be specific to your niche, some are free and others require a listing fee. You should be very careful about where you list. Some free directories are actually quite good, many paid directories can be a waste of money. Spend some time reviewing the types of sites listed – and also check to see whether your competitors are listed. when you do searches in your niche you may start to notice particular directories that are showing up consistently – you should consider listing with these.
Some of the Australian Directories worth considering are TrueLocal, HotFrog and AussieWeb.
Some of the paid directorties which have historically been worth opaying for listings are Yahoo Directory, Best of the Web, Joe Ant.
Remember, directory listings may be a good start, but because theye are relatively easy to do, it is likely that many of your competitorsa are also using this – so if you want to sta6y ahead of the pack, you will need to do more than they do.
3. Forum/Blog Comments
Where does your target market go online? Which websites, forums and networks are used by your customers? These websites and forums are the types of sites from which you should try to get backlinks.Adding comments to relevant forums has also long been considered a useful backlinking strategy. The technique is to find a forum (or blog post) that is relevant to your niche, and leave a comment – along with a link back to your site (whether as a suggested source of further information, or as part of your “signature”).
It is importanat that when you plan to comment on a forum, that you actually add value. Participate in the forum, get a feel for the conversion, and try to ensure that your comment is informative, helpful or useful. A comment such as “Come to my website – xyz.com” is likely to be considered as span and could give you (and ytour sitre) a bad reputation amiongst fiorm members, whereas a seroies of helpful, useful and relevat comments and interactions over a period, with a few subtle references to your site is likley to be more successful.
There has been loads of debate over how the “nofollow” attribute may affect your backlinks from forums, but whether or not this has a direct impact, the value of these tyopes of links is considered to be not as useful as it once was. But there are plenty of other reasons why participating in forums can be of benefit. Forums where your potential customers hang out are a great place to find out what people are talking about in your niche. What are their problems? What do they need? What are they saying (if anything) about your business? Visitors to these forums might also directky follow a link back to your site and become a customer.
It is possble to use “clever” search queries to identify relevant forms to your niche. Queries in Google (or other search engines) based on the following can make it easier for you to find places to leave comments :
“your niche keyword” +forum site:.com.au
“keyword” +comment site:.edu.au
“keyword” +”post a comment” site:.gov.au
4. Product reviews
Consider sending out a free product (or offer a free trial of a service) to influential bloggers/users in your niche in return for writing a review on their site.
5. Offer a Competition
What are a bunch of links worth to you??? Consider buying something “cool” in your niche (or use an unwanted gift) and offer it as a prize in a competition. Notify relevant websites/bloggers and encourage them to link to the competition.
6. Review your business memberships
Are you a member in a business association? Have your company or your products received any awards? Is there a local Chamber of Commerce? What are the governing bodies for your industry? Check if these websites link to your site and try to find new business associations that might be related to your business. This can be particularly useful for getting Locality targeted links.
7. Indirect Competitors
A link from a closely related, relevant website is better than one from a site which has little or nothing to do with your niche. You probably wouldn’t get a link from a direct competitor, but if your product/service is only avaialble in a certain geographic area, it could be mutually beneficial (and sensible) to exchange links with a similar business in anotjer location. For exampler, A Brisbane based BMW dealer, is unlikley to see a Perth BMR dealer as a competitor, but linikinbg to each others websites might be a good idea.
8. Leverage your offline relationships
Offline relationship that you have with other businesses, people and publications can often be turned into online relationships that include links to your website.
If you like the product or service of a company, send them a testimonial. Your testimonial may be listed on the company website along with a link to your site.
10.Sponsorships and social activities
Does your company sponsor any local activities? Do you support relief organisations? If you do, you can get direct links from the organiser of the activity and you can create linkworthy content on your website by writing about your activities.
11. Review your existing backlinks
Analysing the websites that already link to your website (and where they link to) can help you to get an idea of the linkworthy content on your website. You will also learn why other websites link to your site.
12. Review your competitors backlinks
Analyse your competitors backlinks to see which websites link to them – some (but probably not all) of these sites may be suitable backlinks for you. See what type of content their backlinks go to – and consider creating similar content of your own.
13. Write And Submit A Press Release
If you or your business has done something newsworthy (and linkworthy) then tell the world about it. Write a short Press release about it (including a link back to your site) and submit it via a submission service like PR Web and send it to your local media outlets.
14. Track Who’s Republishing Your Content And Offer Them Unique Articles
Publish articles in various popular article directories (e.g. ezinearticles.com). A few weeks later, Google the exact title of the article and your name to see what sites have picked up the article. Then contact the owner of each website that has published the article and offer them additional unique articles (which of course link back to your site).
15. Offer to be a Guest Blogger
Find an authority site or blog that is related to your niche, contact the owner and offer to write a unique post or article for them. This is a great way to raise your profile and give you credibilty within your niche, and if the post is good, you may be invited to write more. Include a bio with the post (with a link back to your site of course).
For most businesses establishing a website is essential. However, once your website is up and running you can’t usually expect potential customers to “automagically” find you on the internet.
Once upon a time (not so very long ago), simply having a website might have been enough, but these days, with more and more business realising the benefits of the web, and far greater competition for top search rankings, most businesses are finding they also need to ensure their site has been optimised to be found easily ion search engines. The best way to do this is through Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – which is not simply a matter of popping in the right key words. Keywords are a certainly an important part of it (and probably the place you should start), but there is a lot more that could (and should) be done to increase traffic to your website.
While SEO can be a full-time job (and is for me) the average small business (and many medium to large businesses as well) probably can’t justify a full time SEO on their payroll.
However, Businesses still have the option of handling SEO on a part-time basis, either in-house or outsourcing it. There are a number of issues that should be taken into consideration before deciding whether or not to outsource your SEO. I’ve outlined below, the main things to consider when planning to outsource your SEO or keep it in house.
When to Outsource SEO?
The main factors that might influence your decision to outsource SEO to an SEO professional or consultant are:
- Workload – If your staff are already flat out dealing with their normal day to day tasks, adding another task or responsibility may not be possible. Assigning another task to an already stretched role, is a great way to ensure that it is not done properly – and may also cause a distraction and impact on the effectiveness of tasks that are so far running smoothly. If you don’t have the man hours or staff available to allocate to your website’s SEO then outsourcing may be your only option. Because SEO is so important to the success of your website, and your business, you can’t afford to assign it to an employee and expect it to be done properly if they are making a half-hearted attempt at it in their “spare time”.
- Experience – If none of your staff knows the first thing about search engine optimisation, or only has limited experience, letting them “experiment” on your business website could be very risky. You are probably much better off getting a specialist SEO company or consultant to handle your website’s SEO needs. Search Engine Optimisation is a dynamic and constantly changing field, and learning and keeping up with what’s happening with SEO can be a lot of work. If your company doesn’t have anyone interested in keeping up to date with current SEO, trends and strategies, the optimisation of your website won’t be as effective as it otherwise might be.
- Tried and Failed – If you’ve already had a go at handling your company website’s SEO in house and you haven’t seen an increase in page ranking or traffic to the site, letting an outside company handle your SEO needs is probably your best option.
When NOT to outsource SEO
- Limited Budget – If you don’t have the money, you don’t have the money. While outsourcing your SEO doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, it does cost money. SEO is rarely a “quick fix” and is likely to take some time to be effective. To ensure it is done properly, you will probably need to engage an SEO consultant for at least a few months while things are analysed and set up. If you are a medium to large sized company you may be able to re-prioritise, and rework your budget so that you can afford to hire an SEO consultant. But if you are a new or small business, you may not be able to justify, or afford it. If you really don’t think you can afford an SEO to do everything for you, you may be able to commission a consultant to provide some SEO training, or at least advice on what optimisation steps that you can afford to take, so it is probably worth at least talking to an SEO consultant to see what the options (and costs) might be.
- Inside SEO expertise – If you already have a staff member who understands SEO, enjoys it and keeps up to date on the changing dynamics, then there should be no need to outsource. Give them the time and tools that they need to keep up with the website’s SEO needs, make sure that they are monitoring, measuring and reporting on the outcomes of their activities, and you’re ready to go.

Google has recently acknowledged the release of a new anti-spam algorithm that deals with content farms.
What’s a Content Farm?
Content farms, are essentially websites that provide masses of low quality content – with the primary aim of achieving high rankings for as many keywords as possible (often with the goal of getting clicks and generating revenue through Adsense or similar advertising). Often the content from content farms is not unique and is just an aggregation of content scraped (by automated tools or manually by workers from low-wage countries).
In many cases, sites that copy the content from other websites can rank higher than the original site and the new algorithm update is trying to address this.
Google’s Matt Cutts has said:
” ‘we’re evaluating multiple changes that should help drive spam levels even lower, including one change that primarily affects sites that copy others’ content and sites with low levels of original content.’
And also :
“The net effect is that searchers are more likely to see the sites that wrote the original content rather than a site that scraped or copied the original site’s content.”
What should you do?
If you’re a legitimate site offering high quality, unique content, then you probably don’t need to do anything – and the algorithm may even give your site a boost (as low quality content farms are dropped from SERPs), but if you want to get high, long term rankings on Google, you should :
- Create a high quality website, with unique content.
- Optimise the pages of your website for both users and search engines
- Improve your site trust by getting as many good quality, relevant backlinks as possible
The content farm algorithm update was part of an ongoing strategy by Google to improve the quality of their search results by removing spam. Google is expected to release many more anti-spam algorithms this year.
A common problem faced by many WordPress users – particularly when they host their site under a shared hosting environment (such as GoDaddy or HostGator) occurs when they try to upload an image, audio or video file, and they come across an error something along the lines of the following :
“ Filename” has failed to upload due to an error
This file exceeds the maximum upload size for this site.
This error typically occurs when the hosting environment imposes a memory or file size limit. The error indicates that there is a restriction on the amount of memory the system can allocate to perform a file upload, and there is not currently enough memory available.
Usually this issue can be resolved as follows
Create a php.ini file
Create (using notepad) a file called php.ini with the following contents (or edit the existing file if one already exists) and upload it to the wp-admin directory :
;; set memory limit for cache.php
memory_limit = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 5M
post_max_size = 5M
And that’s it. Save, upload, test and check for additional errors.
What if it doesn’t work !!!
Your host may not allow the Memory Limit increase, or they may have a setting which overwrites (or limits) the changes you made. If nothing seems to work, contact your host provider and find out if they allow you to increase that limit and which method ought to be used.
Although not a common problem, I have from time to time come across a WordPress error which occurs when trying to upload an image to a Blog Post. The process appears to work correctly and the upload seems to be happening, but an error occurs of the form :
“filename” has failed to upload due to an error The uploaded file could not be moved to DirectoryStructure
This problem prevents you from uploading media to you blog posts
As far as I can tell the problem has occurred after the WordPress site has been migrated to a new host – and the old upload directory location has not been correctly updated.
Fortunately the solution is pretty simple :
- From WP Administration, go to Settings > Media
- Check the “Uploading Files” section and change the “Store uploads in this folder” field to the default setting – wp-content/uploads – and “Save the Changes“
- Try another upload,
- if it still does not work, change the permissions on the uploads directory to 766 or 777
Most website owners, whether they own just one domain or hundreds of domains, will at some stage be approached by unscrupulous organisations, trying to get them to renew their domain names or buy new domain names at hugely inflated prices.
I regularly get enquiries from my clients who have received a “Domain Name Expiration Notice” email or even a letter in the post from some official sounding business (such as “Domain Renewal Group” or plenty of others). However, I suspect that many of them just receive n invoice, assume it is legitimate and go ahead an pay it. This initiates a transfer of the domain to a new registrar, and means that future renewals will continue to be at the inflated price (unless of course they get another domain renewal scam letter in the interim)
Unfortunately, it is usually the small business owners who normally get burnt by these schemes. They know that they have a domain name, and that it needs to be renewed every now and again, but get confused by the technical details, assume it is OK, and go ahead an pay.
One of the problems is that these renewal scams are in many cases not illegal, but they are certainly unethical. They prey on the naivety of website owners who assume that the notifications and invoices they receive are legitimate.
How do Domain Renewal Scams work?
Domain name renewal scams are setup to work in a number of ways.
- You might be sent an invoice for a domain name that is very similar to your current domain name – the scammer hopes that you don’t notice the difference and just pay the invoice.
- You might receive notification that someone is trying to register your domain with a different top level domain or country domain and they are trying to help you “protect your intellectual property” by offering you first option.
- Alternatively, you could be sent a letter that looks like a renewal notice for your actual domain name, but is from a different company to the one which your domain is actually registered.
Check your Domain
The job for domain renewal scammers is pretty easy, because in most cases information about who owns domains (including contact details) is publicly available, although, there is often an option for you to make this information private as a part of the registration process – for an additional fee.
You (and anyone else, including domain scammers) can check the details of your own domain by using a WHOIS service such as www.domaintools.com. Simply enter your domain name, and click submit to see what information is publicly available. Different types of information are available depending on the type of domain name you have, but the main things that you should be aware of is :
- who your registrar is (this is the organisation that your domain is registered with) and
- when is the domain due to expire.
How to avoid Domain Scams?
To ensure that you don’t get ripped of by scammers – either by paying too much for the renewal of your own domain, or tricked into buying a new domain that you may not need, you should:
- Be aware of Domain Prices – make sure that you have at least some idea of what you should expect to be paying for your domain name. Take a look at WebConsulting’s domain name prices for an idea of costs for registering most common domains names
- Be suspicious of ANY unsolicited bills – be sceptical of any emails, letters or invoices you receive that you weren’t expecting or that are from organisations that you don;t recognise
- Know your domain details – follow the “Check your Domain” instructions above and make sure you know who your domain is registered with, and when it is due for renewal
- Is your domain renewal due soon? – scam domain notification renewals will often be sent out several months before the renewal id actually due, whereas legitimate ones tend to be sent out with month or less notice.
- Carefully read the Invoice – make sure to check that the domain name listed in the invoice is the same as your actual domain name. If it is the same, also check to make sure that the invoice is from the company that you have previously used to register your domain name.
Domain renewals and transfers
Whenever you receive a renewal notification – whether it is legitimate or otherwise, take a little time to check out current domain registration costs. These prices tend to have reduced over the years and can vary significantly even for legitimate domain registration providers. For example MelbourneIT (One of Australias original and for a long time largest, domain registration services) currently charges $75.60 for a single years .com registration and $140 for renewing a .com.au domain name for 2 years, whereas Webconsulting’s domain registration service currently charges just $12 a year for a .com and $28 for two years for .com.,au domains – a MUCH cheaper option for exactly the same service.
Transferring a domain name to another registrar is a pretty straightforward process, but do not leave it to the last minute, as in my experience there can sometimes be problems if a transfer is initiated within 1 week of it’s renewal date. If you think you are paying too much for your domains, and are looking at a making some significant savings on your domain registration costs, check out WebConsulting’s domain name prices , and why not transfer your domain today.
Google is forever tweaking the content, structure and even functionality of their search results, but over the last month or so has implemented a number of very significant changes – notably Google Instant, Instant Preview, and the way that Google Places content has been incorporated into the SERPs.
In particular in the latest batch of updates, Google Places content has been given much greater prominence, and is now (in many cases) taking up a significant section of the “above the fold” part of the page – monopolising much of the area previously allocated to organic results. Organic search results are now give less prominence at the bottom of the page – and usually below the fold.
At the moment, many of the Place Pages being listed in Google SERPs are still of questionable value, and it is still relatively easy to create a brand new Place Page and have it ranking at the top of the SERPs.
In our opinion there is still a lot of work for Google to do with Google Places results in order to ensure that users get the best possible search results.
I believe that Google needs to get smarter about the algorithm they use to determine Place Pages rankings, and anticipate that they will continue to tweak and adjust how Place Pages are integrated in the Google search results, but whatever happens, it is clear that having a Google Places listing for your business is now more important than ever before.
