Top tips for marketing online

April 30, 2012

Welcome to the Q Social Media April Newsletter, top tips for marketing online and upcoming social media training events, including one for the wedding industry.

Top Tips:

1) Social Media Helps Optimise Websites For Google – Google loves social media as it helps them distinguish active sites from inactive sites to specific keyword seaches. You can use social media to drive hits to your website, mentioning the keywords within the message that contains the link to the site. Not only to the home page, to sub-pages too, which helps Google provide more accurate results.

Google is able to pick up on this and so could over time deliver the visitor to the actual page they require on your site rather than them having to browse from the home page to find it. That’s even if the home page would come up within the Google results as it might not be rated high enough for the specific keyword search used.

2) Content is King – on your website ensure the content for each page is optimised with the right keywords within it. Remember the content still needs to be readable to the viewer.  Keywords can be more than one word, for example for our business “social media” is a keyword. Then ensure the page title, the sub-page link, meta description and meta keywords all mention some or all of the specific keywords too (where applicable). You can also be location specific, e.g. “social media training exeter” is a keyword that we would use for the sub-page that is about social media training in Exeter.

For more on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and how social media plays it’s part, we’re presenting a seminar on this at the Taunton Business Network on 23rd May.
