Search Engine Optimization

Gulf Coast Website Design builds each page with organic search engine optimization (SEO) best practices helping your website show up ahead of competitors’ websites. On-page SEO is exactly as it sounds, optimizing each web page for search engine traffic.

Many businesses do not understand how SEO works and believe they must use paid search engine marketing. This is not true, in fact, recent studies indicate 70-80% of users ignore the paid ads and click on organic search links.

On-page search engine optimization is free, it just takes a substantial amount of work and time. There are many on-page techniques that your users and search engines will love. Some top on-page elements are:

  • Keyword-rich URL Structure: You want to avoid vague or long URLs and opt for short keyword URLs. Make sure your URLs are user-friendly so visitors can remember and revisit the web addresses.
  • Title Tag: Your title tag is not only a significant on-page SEO factor but is often a new visitor's first interaction with your brand. The title tag should accurately describe the content of your web page. They also aid the user in navigation and bookmarking.
  • H1 - Headline Tag: Your page should only have one H1 tag that encompasses the title and keyword for maximum SEO benefits. Use the H2 and h1 tags as supportive sub-headers.
  • Content: Your website must establish credibility with the intelligence of the search engines. The theory pages with long content tend to rank significantly higher is supported by industry study. While there are no definitive rules, we suggest aiming between 1000-2000 words per web page. Your site needs to have keywords relevant to your business and high-quality, share-worthy and engaging content. The quality of the material improves user-experience metrics such as bookmarking, repeat visitors and time spent on the site.

Beware of companies claiming to guarantee website rankings or allege a particular relationship with Google to priority submit. The fact is there is no priority submit for Google. The only way to submit a site to Google directly is via submitting a Sitemap, and at no cost whatsoever.

An effective organic SEO strategy can yield more website visits in as little as three months. However, to see the long-lasting results you are looking at a timeline of 12 – 18 months.
