What Is SEO – Search Engine Optimization

SEO may be described in only a few ways. Expand the acronym, and you have, Search Engine Optimization, so that part is easy enough.

But then, we have to get to “What IS SEO?” And, that takes some plain English translation of techno-speak, where we actually have to make sense of something that sounds complex.
Of course, it’s not fair to use the words; Search, Engine, or Optimization, in the definition. So, let’s give it a try, shall we?

Here it is: SEO is the process of making content on websites relevant to the big names you know, like Google, Bing and Yahoo.

The links you get in the list of results returned for the terms you search depends on what the engines find when they look at content available on the web. So, if your web pages have information (meaning lots of words and phrases) on something like, “dog walking” or “dog grooming”, the search engines will get to know your website as a provider of information on those topics. Furthermore, if other people share links to your site, as a recommendation to others for information on the topics of  “dog walking” or “dog grooming”, the search engines might start to think your site is a great resource for those topics and rank your site even higher in their results.

Of course, we could go on about all of the things that impact search results and your ranking with search engines, but to answer that one basic question: “What IS SEO?” – you simply have to know that the engines match content to topics, then use that information to return a list of links to someone searching terms that refer to those topics. Think of it as a kind of digital match game, or match making, if you like. The content on your website “matches” what the search users want and the search engines return links to your web pages in those results (SERPs).

Did that do it? Was it plain enough? If not, see below for links to resources for similar answers.
Some even have short videos to show you what SEO means. Enjoy!

Word Press Plugins – Mouse Help Local SEO Expert

Today, via LinkedIn, I enjoyed an exchange regarding some WordPress issues in a group dedicated to Social Media.

So, that kind of sums things up fairly nicely, when you think about it. On one of the more mature social media sites, we were discussing a blog and website platform, in a group dedicated to Social Media. Given the universal mention of SEO by so many posters, we really covered every topic related to communications today.

No matter what label you put on it, “digital marketing”, in all its forms requires skills in so many different forums. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogging, WordPress, websites, and now Pinterest, Yelp, Google+ and other newer forms of social whatever are things you need to know how to work for maximum value in your approach to marketing, branding, and name recognition.

Overcommunication

Do you think it is possible to put too much communication out there, in the vast ether of the Internet?

There are two schools of thought on this, I suppose.

  • One would be that there is so much noise, you might just become part of what people learn to ignore.
  • The other is that must keep your name, face, brand, or message in front of people, so it will be there at the very moment they are ready to take action.
  • Is there a third idea on this? Maybe mine, where I just write for the fun of it and then leverage the content I’ve created for SEO needs.

Take a moment to consider this and send a response via any means you like –
like my post on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, send a message by email, pony express, or sneakernet!

Who knows about sneakernet?

Please do communicate – it’s all good!

Google Rules

In case you had any doubt about the power of search, here is a story of another website crash brought about by an increase in demand.

http://www.ndtv.com/topic/Maker-of-Royal-swaddle

No doubt, you’ve heard of George. He wears swaddle.
Surely, you want this same swaddle for your baby.
How else will you get that regal feeling for yourself?

So, you search for the maker of the infant prince’s garb. You find the maker’s website and what!? The site is down! Yes, it’s true. You, too, may experience this good fortune – your website crashed due to the overwhelming demand for your product or service.

But, hey, if you aren’t already clothing royal children, you may just want to invest in a bit of SEO service for your site.

Drop me a line, give me a call, follow me, find me, but do make contact. Then I can help you be found on page one of search results.

Mouse Help Rising

Did you know that “Mr. Mojo Risin” was an anagram for Jim Morrison? I learned that recently.

Maybe I can come up with a clever anagram for Mouse Help Rising…. As it is, if you search for “mouse help”, my links are now on page one of Google, under Apple and Microsoft, in positions three and four of the organic search results. This is not bad company for someone who just eight weeks ago decided to do this experiment.

One question, suitable for another blog post:
Does anyone really pay attention to favicons?
I do, but I’m that way. It takes a bit of effort, but I think it is worth it, to have my little mouse image next to my company name on the tab of my website.

See how LinkedIn, Google and Moushelp are all represented by their respective images?

favicons

See how boring it can be without one? Again, I’ll say – maybe it’s just me!

That’s all I’m trying to say…

not favicon

Making Sauce More Secret

I’m working on a subscription-based website, where I plan to publish the best of what works with organic SEO. Most of that content will come from the experience we’ve shared here.

Remember, this is an experiment, so, thanks for participating with me. If I were a scientist, I suppose I should have proposed some theory to prove, so we could all marvel at the results produced.

It matters very little, I think, that this was not done so formally. In the end, if you search for Mouse Help, or Mousy Search Terms, and find links to these pages on the first page of the SERPs, we’ve proven something!

That’s all I’m trying to say.


Palm Desert SEO is the search term I hope you will use to find my service.

                                                                               

Secret Sauce – Mouse Help

This is the term I used to describe what SEO means in plain English.

I said, “SEO is the secret sauce that feeds Google” and I meant to say that all search engines probably get the same serving. But, I tend to focus on Google, since I am a customer.
