00:00 – Welcome to our webinar! Today is December 10th, 2015. We have our usual guests Robin, Paul, Terry, and 2 special guests Dan and Paul Fiorelli from www.Fiorelligraphics.com with us. We are here to discuss everything and anything dealing with SEO.
00:07 – If you have any questions regarding your SEO, like how does it work? What can I do to improve my website? How do I rank better? That is what we do. So if you want to share your website and who you are, we can possibly mini-audit your site.
00:09 – Some of our services at Awesome Dynamic are Search Engine Optimization, Responsive Web Design, Google Street View Trusted (virtual tours), and Amazon Seller Consulting. We are in the midst of finishing off a brand new service called Awesome Dynamic Academy where we offer a monthly, low price subscription based service, which helps you learn the ropes of SEO. There are over 100 lessons with step by step videos.
00:18 – Keyword stuffing. Is it a common practice anymore? Not so much these days. 5 years ago it was a legit tactic to rank for certain keywords. These days, Google is starting to penalize those who keyword stuff. Weather you stuff keywords in the meta data, or on a webpage, it’s not beneficial to humans, your business, or Google. The best way to rank for keywords is to make unique, fresh content per keyword. That usually means making a blog post, or a webpage per keyword. Yes it is a lot of work, but that is how you compete these days.
00:27 – I need a website, so what is SEO? Fact is, the internet is littered with both great and crappy websites. Regardless of how good or bad your website is, the SEO is what drives customers and viewers to your site. In a sea of billions of webpages, how do you get found? There is the technical side, and the human side. Both need to be incorporated to rank well, and have people view your site.
00:35 – To show up in the local pack of Google with the golden stars under your business name, you must have 5 or more positive reviews. We say positive, because if you have 5 bad reviews, your one or two star average will show up and maybe turn potentially clients away.
00:36 – What can I do as a business owner to remove potentially fake or bad reviews that were left maliciously? Sadly, about the most you can do is responding to the review quickly to make it look like you are proactive. However, if the review violates the Google review policies, you can contact Google and get it removed.
00:59 – We are at the end of our webinar, and time sure flies when you are having fun, right? RIGHT? If you were happy with our webinar and feel like leaving us a 5 star reviews based off the information we provided, we would be greatly appreciative. Considering we only covered 2 or 3 topics today, there are hundreds of topics regarding SEO that help you rank better and attain customers. Don’t forget to check out www.awesomedynamic.com.
