SEO Changes: How Users Became Top Priority These Days

seochanges1

SEO changes are inevitable. During the many years that it is being used to rope in website visitors to gain footing, innovations and evolutions are only natural to transpire. And one of these evolutions are the shift of priority of SEO endeavors. During its initial establishment and eventual thriving, SEO was just being accomplished to get audience no matter the cost. But now, everyone had learned that User Experience is the paramount to having an authentic, actually long-lasting SEO engagement.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see how SEO had changed these past years for its users and how you can tweak your own mechanics to better fit your audience!

The Refurbished User Experience

If you have been using the web in the early 2000s, you would remember how bulky interfaces look, how dizzying colors are, and how overwhelming fonts can be. Today, this would not work and your bounce rate would skyrocket, meaning your SEO will suffer terribly—simply because they do not make for a satisfying user experience. As time goes on, people’s tastes have become more sophisticated, not just in design but in content as well.

Gone are the tacky designs and the less-than-filtered content, SEO changes paved way for brimming with sleek designs and actually engaging and useful content. Specifically, websites now are made sure to fit in different devices and we will be sure seeing more of this in the future due to Google’s mobile-first indexing.

UX design or how your website looks and is navigated have also became more complex than before, from knowing your audience to setting up your site’s wireframe, the strategies have turned multi-faceted to ensure that the journey’s user is a worthwhile one.

The Benefits of Focusing on Users

When the needs of a user are fulfilled, expect for trust to grow. With this, they will come go further your services, will come back for more, and tell people about the customer satisfaction you provided. In retrospect, an outstanding user experience calls for valuable returns for your business because of brand loyalty and even if some won’t go ahead with what you offer, there will still be an imprint that might prove useful in the future. According to studies, good user experience in the website can produce conversation rates up to 400%. This is one of the best benefits to come out of the many SEO changes over the years.

Users are a vital part for a successful SEO, even if you have the most organized system, you will not garner any return of investment (ROI) if you do not have a connection to your potential users. Digital marketing is for people and about people so if you’re still adhering to some SEO changes then you are definitely falling behind. Did you know that only 55% of companies perform user experience testing for their website? Step up, do not follow the herd: instead, be the one the people will follow.

The most important KPI in Digital Marketing and SEO services—Sales!

A whopping number of 380 websites gets launched daily. And almost 6,000 apps appear daily in the Google App Store.

I think you would know what I am trying to reveal here.

Yes, you got it.

There is too much stuff out there for us to use and try, pay for and most of it will be useless since only 15% of those things will actually have some sort of success.

The heading on our title says it all.

It’s all about the SALE.

And most of us are using things and doing things we don’t even need to! We are hooked to them and instead of having a simple one to two Key Performance Indexes (KPIs), we have made probably about 10-20.

I am not saying that you shouldn`t have so much KPIs, I am simply saying make one to two your bottom line KPI to know if things are going right or wrong.

And in my opinion, those digital marketing and SEO services’ KPIs should be Traffic Generation and Sales. Read here about the only one guarantee of success in Digital Marketing.

As an SEO services provider for a client, I am responsible for focusing on traffic—aside from focusing on mastering certain digital marketing skills. My clients’ sales team should focus on the sales.

Upon simplifying things can we have clarity. Clarity is key to the direction to where you want to go. It’s your goal!

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.” —Napolean Hill

Napolean Hill Sums it up that you,

  1. Need a goal, and that,
  2. The goal needs to have a deadline.

This will keep you engaged and will force you to prioritize things and to work on them first before anything else.

And in the end anyways, it’s always about the sales. Do not ever forget that and you will understand what you need to do. Let that be crystal clear to us all.Now go and present your clients with the best digital marketing and SEO services report!

The 1 Thing That Guarantees Success in Digital Marketing | Redkite Philippines

The 1 Thing That Guarantees Success in Digital Marketing

What’s the one thing that can guarantee your success in Facebook or Google?

Links? Content? Boosted ads? Or some kind of new update or strategy?

Facebook and Google Apps | Redkite Philippines

Sincerely, I wanted to sit back and find what to blog about and after visiting a few blogs like 3 Tips for SEO 2018 and SEO: Rank Brain and How it Works 2018, I just got very tired.

And then I realized none of my clients in digital marketing in the Philippines and abroad would be interested in me making a blog like that.

Why?

‘Cause it sounds like too much work with little or no direction.

Like a bad investment.

Like too much pixels and not much people.

And pixels don’t buy stuff—people do.

The biggest cause of failure for start-ups and small businesses is losing focus—doing too many things at once and spreading yourself thin. Being thin in this age when everyone’s trying to get noticed is like begging for failure.

A busy businesswoman | Redkite Philippines

So…

What is this wondrous one thing that’s guaranteed to succeed in Facebook or Google?

Simple: A business plan.

But not just any business plan.

It should be formulated and calculated with “If this, then that; if not, then something else.”

Business planning | Redkite Philippines

A business plan built with a long-term vision but focused on the short-term goals—the way the eyes of an eagle can zoom in a prey and zoom out to see the whole forest below.

Let’s think of it this way: If you are a realtor in Las Vegas, why target all of Las Vegas in your Facebook Boost instead of targeting a specific zip code? Why target difficult keywords when you can research for longer tailed keywords?

Google Analytics | Redkite Philippines

So, my advice is this: Think BIG but start with a calculated plan. Focus on one product or service and be absolutely the best in that niche. Focus on being a wedding photographer instead of just a professional photographer. After all, you can always grow from that point. And always be perseverant.

Sylvester Stallone nailed this right in an interview. He said, “Just get one thing right.”

I believe that it must be a simple goal—it won’t be easy but it’s nice to keep things simple and work up from there. Having a focused business plan will help you:

  • Write the focused content
  • Be an authority on the subject
  • Write the right copy for your ad
  • Write the right meta data
  • Decide on the right schema to work on
  • Tweet and hangout with the right peers
  • Find the right groups
  • Earn the links
  • Get the right shares and mentions
  • Have the right page speed loads for your page
  • Produce an absolutely well-designed landing page

Life will truly be a blessing and things will fall into place.

My conclusion here is that Facebook and Google’s algorithm will always go the same place they’ve always gone in the last decade or so—and that’s user satisfaction.

So, if you’re on board with their user-satisfaction-first mantra, you will always do well.

But this satisfaction will not come if you keep being distracted with too many things.

Remember Sly’s advice: all you have to do is to get that one thing right.
