Website’s search engine optimization

What is SEO?

Website’s search engine optimization, , also referred to as SEO, is a set of tasks that aim at achieving the most favorable position possible in organic (natural) Google search results for specific keywords.

The first stage is to perform a keyword research to select the most sensible phrases. Professional SEO is predominantly based on:

  • building a strong link profile,
  • creating engaging content,
  • technical optimization of the website with its users and search engine crawlers in mind.

What factors influence website’s position in a search engine ranking?

In order to optimize a website properly, it is necessary to know what impact website ranking. It is not a simple task, for Google prepares the list of results basing on several factors. The key of them that SEO experts focus on are:

1. ELEMENTS CONNECTED WITH TECHNICAL WEBSITE OPTIMIZATION:

  • use of Title and Description tags,
  • proper structure of H1-H6 headers,
  • internal linking structure,
  • HTML code validity,
  • website loading time,
  • website responsiveness or mobile version,
  • implementation of the SSL certificate and a safe HTTPS protocol.

2. ELEMENTS CONNECTED WITH WEBSITE CONTENT:

  • amount of text on the website,
  • content uniqueness,
  • keyword density,
  • content quality – satisfying information-related needs of users.

3. ELEMENTS CONNECTED WITH WEBSITE POPULARITY:

  • number of links to other websites and their quality,
  • Link growth.

4. SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVENESS

Social platforms indirectly impact the position of a website in search results. They are also the place for distributing content and communicating with users. Creating account in certain social media may positively affect website traffic.

Advantages of website’s SEO – impact on website traffic

A high position in search results directly translates into a greater number of visits. The higher the position in the search engine ranking , the greater the traffic generated (Source: Chitika The Value of Google Result Positioning Report; https://chitika.com/google-positioning-value ):

A website holding the 1st place in search results is visited by 32,5 % of users, 2nd place is visited by 17,6% of them, whereas website ranking 5th for a given keyword is visited by only 6,1 % users. Results from the first page of search results are of key importance for they account for 91,5% of overall website traffic. The second page allows to reach 4,8%, users whereas the third one – only 1,1%.

Aside from website traffic increase, a proper SEO can also ensure improved brand presence and competitiveness on the market. A website that is regularly displayed in search results is remembered better by prospective clients.

How does the SEO process look like?

Website’s search engine optimization is an ongoing process requiring engagement during its every stage. SEO yields some results after some time and reaching a TOP3 position is not a guarantee that a given website will stay there for the consecutive months.

The positioning website in search engines process (that is frequently preceded by pre-positioning) typically involves 5 main stages:

KEYWORD RESEARCH
Selection of keyphrases is the key stage on which the efficiency of all other steps depends. It is worth opting for phrases relating to the offer and directing clients to chosen subpages.

ANALYSIS AND TECHNICAL OPTIMIZATION OF THE WEBSITE
Website verification, identifying website functioning-related problems, and preparing guidelines connected with optimization are of utmost importance here. At this stage, we adjust the website to the requirements of Google search engine. Sometimes even SEO optimization alone may translate into a better position in Google search results.

CONTENT EXPANSION
Websites that have an interesting, unique and SEO optimized content are promoted in search results. We prepare our materials by taking into account the needs of users and robot indexing. The publication of an engaging content has a remarkable impact on the position in search results – our service includes both SEO Copywriting and Content Marketing.

INCREASING WEBSITE’S POPULARITY
We gather valuable links that will lead to increasing the position of the website in search results and contribute to creating a varied link profile. A link building strategy is prepared for each and every website individually.

STATISTICAL DATA ANALYSIS
We analyze customer’s website in a regular manner to verify the efficiency of the assumed strategy. Said efficiency is checked by means of, among others, Google Analytics and Google Search Console. Basing on analysis outcomes, we prepare new optimization guidelines (re-optimization).

How much does SEO cost?

The cost of optimizing of a website depends on various factors and that is why SEO services are typically valuated individually after analyzing a given website and discussing business goals with its owner. At Artefakt, we offer several settlement methods:

SUBSCRIPTION/LUMP SUM

It is the most popular settlement form that allows for optimizing a given website in a comprehensive manner. Cooperation terms (amount to be paid, positioning duration, and scope of services) are specified before concluding an agreement. The main advantage of this form of settlement is the possibility of planning the budget. The client knows from the very start how much he or she will have to pay. He or she can also terminate the agreement after a short notice period.

TRAFFIC FEE

Amount to be paid depends on website traffic and specified fee per session. Said settlement model is most frequently chosen by online shops and informational sites renting advertising space. Similarly to conversion fee, the budget is difficult to estimate.

MIXED SETTLEMENT MODELS

Mixed settlement models for positioning services in search engines combine the benefits of pay-per-outcome and lump sum systems. For both parties to be satisfied with the agreement concluded, both subscription and success fee are implemented. The latter is dependent on the position of phrases, traffic, and conversions.

CONVERSION FEE

In the case of this model, a SEO company calculates a payment that is based on a fixed subscription and a variable conversion-based payment that may be understood as, among others, making a purchase in the shop or filling in a contact form.

What affects SEO price?

  • Branch of industry the entrepreneur operates in,
  • Keyword competitiveness (the less popular the phrase, the cheaper the service and the quicker the outcome),
  • Website quality (content, structure, CMS),
  • Domain age,
  • Number of keywords chosen for optimization ,
  • Current link profile,
  • Possible search engine penalties imposed by algorithms,

How to measure effects?

  • Website’s position in search results for specific keywords. It is becoming gradually less valid – positions are personalized and depend on the location and search history.
  • Traffic statistics – reports taken from, e.g. Google Analytics. Key factor here is the excess of traffic in comparison with the number of visits before starting cooperating with the agency.
  • Conversions – position of a given website in search results should be connected with an increased activeness of users visiting it. If a website has not been generating more income while being ranked high, there is the need to look for causes and draw proper conclusions.

To ensure an effective optimization a SEO company generates regular reports relating to efficiency measures, thanks to which it is possible to analyze the outcomes of performed undertakings and correct the assumptions of the selected SEO strategy.
