SEO for printers

Search Engine Optimisation.  SEO.  The Holy Grail.  How to get found on the internet.  As we’ve said before, you can have the best web site in the world … but if no-one ever finds it …  So what actually is it?  We’ll start by asking you some questions:

  1. Have you ever tried to find your own site on the internet through a search?
  2. And what about your competitor’s sites?

Sometimes the results of such searches can be disappointing – you want to be very high on the rankings and you’re not, and perhaps your competitors rank higher than you do.

  1. Think about your own browsing behaviour – how often do you scroll past the top search results?

And even if you do rank highly, things keep changing, and your competitors will keep trying to improve too, so you can never rest on your laurels!

This is where SEO, and this idea of a “high quality” site, comes in.

There are three fundamental elements to consider:

  1. the actual content of your website
  2. the links to it
  3. Social Media

Let’s take a quick look at each in turn.

SEO For Printers: Produce high quality content

What you put on your website should be:

  1. unique (the only, or one of very few, source(s) of the information that the user is looking for)
  2. high quality (well-written, insightful, thought-provoking, interesting)
  3. valuable (what the user wanted!)

And it’s not just about the main content of your website either!  Writing regular blogs will attract more traffic, inbound links, social media buzz, positive brand awareness, and will ultimately result in more leads and sales.

Internet Marketing For Printers: Build links

This follows on naturally.  The higher quality and thus more talked about your content is, the more people will want to reference it – links to your site from other sites is an excellent way of attracting more traffic and sending positive signals to Google that you’ve created some interesting content.

Create Conversion: Use Social Media

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr (and all the rest) … didn’t even exist when SEO first developed, but you’ll know from your own experience that they are now all-pervasive and still growing rapidly! Your potential customers will be using Social Media, and so you can use it too to connect at a more personal level.

Attract Qualified Website Visitors: Consider pay-per-click

You may feel that you want even more, so you can always try investing in Google AdWords (and you can always switch it off later if the results you want don’t come).  Your site will almost certainly get visited more often, but it will cost you each time – and of course there are no guarantees that the visitors will spend any money with you!  It’s well worth checking out.

And – surprise surprise there’s more to it than that.  It’s one thing to get found, it’s another to generate an order (or at least an enquiry).   We’re now entering into the world of what we call “digital marketing”: a methodology where a variety of techniques (SEO, blogs, social media etc.) are used in conjunction to generate the results that you’re looking for.
