What Can Be Learned By Reading And Applying What Is Contained In This Scsi WebKISS™ Guide?

Purpose

The purpose of Scsi's WebKISS™ Guide #8: Want to Increase Your Search Engine Rankings? Web page is three-fold:

  1. Provide Web site personnel with absolutely irrefutable (read: convincing beyond any doubt) proof that adoption of Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard with its underlying set of Scsi's Web Site Best Practices will contribute significantly toward accomplishing this ever-in-demand objective -- and save both time and money in the long run, as well.
  2. Outline a general approach for companies to follow that should lead to the realization for their Web site(s) of all three constantly-sought-after (read: "triple hitter") goals among search engine rankings, namely: Findability (at a minimum); Visibility (somewhere well up the list); and Prominence (at or very near the top of the list).
  3. Ultimately, reach the desired end-point goal of climbing Scsi's Search Engine Optimization "Triple-Hitter" Pyramid to prominence -- by adopting, learning exactly how to implement, and committing to adhering to as many of Scsi's Web Site Best Practices as are practicable within your company's Web site design(s).

What's The Point Of Providing You With All These Search Engine Rankings Examples?

Obviously, the above-listed results -- across all but the last of the five wide-ranging SEO categories of Search Engine Rankings -- clearly demonstrate outstanding achievement of search engine-based "triple hitter" results for findability, visibility, and prominence rankings associated with Web pages within the sonoffconsulting.com domain.

Why is this so? Well, the fundamental reason behind attainment of such outstanding search engine rankings is simple: Adherence to Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard with its underlying set of Best Practices -- see Part 2 for details -- that every World Class Level Web site should strive to provide its visitors.

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

Want Some Independent Confirmation That Adherence to Both Web- and Search Engine Optimization-focused Best Practices Will Pay Off?

Need even more proof? Well, with the kind permission of Andy King, President of Web Site Optimization, LLC and author of Speed Up Your Site: Web Site Optimization, you can directly access Andy's 40-page PDF presentation entitled, "Organic Search Engine Optimization: Best & Worst Practices for Maximum (and minimum) Rankings" and enjoy his strongly-coupled graphical and point-by-point descriptions for why Best Practices are to be adopted, as well as to learn what some of the Worst Practices are that should definitely be avoided in your pursuit of achieving increased Search Engine Rankings for your Web site's pages. Thanks, Andy!

Scsi suggests that you thoroughly examine Andy's highly informative document for yourself. Once you do, Scsi believes that you will become convinced that embracing these Web Site Best Practices will prove to be a truly "win-win" approach (read: a knockout "one-two-three triple-hitter" of findability, visibility, and prominence) that all companies' technical and management personnel should fully understand, appreciate, adopt, and vigorously apply to each and every one of their respective Web sites.

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

How Can You Achieve "Triple-Hitter" Results For Your Web Site's Pages?

Scsi's answer to the above question is both straightforward and obvious -- if you have followed the above-listed content through to this point: You must commit to and focus your efforts toward implementing as many of Scsi's World Class Level Web Site Best Practices as possible.

Yes, it's really that simple. However, just wishing to have this solution in place will not make it happen, of course.

Next, let's cover specific details to keep in mind for reaching this most worthwhile, profitable, and productive objective of increasing Search Engine Rankings:

 

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

Focus Efforts Toward Achieving Customer-centric Web Site Design Objectives.

To get your bearings and begin to establish directions to move to address the numerous issues involved, Scsi suggests that you start by getting definitive answers to questions such as these:

  1. What design issues have to be brought to light to even begin the process of tailoring a solution for getting from where you are now to where you want to be with the yet-to-be-redesigned Web site?
  2. Who is best equipped to make such assessments and do so impartially in order to best serve the company's overall business objectives?
  3. In what ways can the various facets of assessment, design, implementation, testing, and maintenance be approached and completed successfully?
  4. What tools and documentation needs to be generated to keep all parties concerned working from the same road map?
  5. What manner of checks and balances can be established and adhered to so as to minimize either overlaps, gaps, or conflicting activities along the way?

 

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

Provide Textual Content, Including Meaningful Anchor Text Descriptions, On Every Web Page.

Okay, by now you should have convinced yourself that Scsi's Web Site Best Practices really do all of what they are claimed to do and that you need to focus your attention on details. Now, you must want to roll up your sleeves and get started and are likely asking the question, "What's next to know and practice?"

Know this: People everywhere are busy. They always want to be provided with information they are seeking and to obtain it quickly and with a minimal amount of effort on their part. Whatever it is that can be incorporated into a Web site that will make such customer-centric tasks easy for them to perform and complete -- preferably as seamlessly as possible -- will place your Web site at the top of their list of Internet-based "tools" for getting things done. Why? Because they will appreciate that they will become freed to pursue other activities all that much sooner.

What does this mean in terms of Web content? You should always provide substantial textual content, including meaningful anchor text descriptions, on every Web page, and here are some reasons for this statement:

  1. Realize that garnering of high search engine rankings in Google or any other search engine of your choice is built upon adherence to the "Content is King" philosophy -- whose basic element is text which conveys information literally -- and (as no surprise to you) text is readily indexable by search engines. In other words, search engines love text.
  2. Search engines really don't deal very well with perceived jibberish, such as JavaScript, plug-ins, graphic images devoid of meaningful and relevant alternative text descriptions.
  3. Search engines do not handle well Web pages that contain broken hyperlinks, that do not validate, or that prove not to be accessible for whatever reason(s).
  4. Search engines seek out and will devour those specific Web pages that are designed to provide meaningful anchor text descriptions and that make use of complete sentences of text.

 

*** Return to TOP of this page. ***

Maintain Attention To Detail At All Times.

Once you have a list of appropriate questions well underway for what needs to be accomplished, formulate a detailed plan of attack for getting the needed answers, as well as coming up with the qualified personnel (whether inside or outside your company) who can be assigned each of the listed elements to be addressed.

Certainly the details will vary widely in both their breadth and depth for any given Web site, yet the importance of giving undivided attention to each detail cannot be overemphasized as to its importance to the success of the overall implementation process.

Conclusion: It will always take a concentrated effort by knowledgeable and well-informed Web content developers to both address and to satisfy as many of these critical elements as possible before those Web pages are rewarded by the Internet's current breed of search engines with findability, visibility, and prominence.

Seek Professional Assistance.

Because time is of the essence in nearly all professional endeavors, you should weigh carefully whom you will entrust with specific tasks. Moreover, you should always keep in mind the necessity for retaining independent consultants and other professionals who have suitable experience for the tasks at hand to be an integral part of your project team. Skimping on getting the best persons for the job tends to catch up with any project manager who has taken that route. Scsi's advice is to always make effective use of available resources who can assist you toward meeting your goals and objectives in both a timely and cost-effective manner.
