I recently found out that a friend of mine has an online business that I was not aware of. She said that she sells beads and jewelry accessories. She sent me the link to her site and I gave it a cursory glance. I asked her how business was and she told me that business is ok, but that she would like to have more customers. I then asked her about her marketing and what all it consists of. She told me that she does not bother with it because her business is part of a franchise. I recommended to her that she use some keyword rich articles to improve her search engine results and she told me that she does not want to spend the money on it and that "business will pick up soon". She had no strategic plan of how her business would "pick up" though.
This is an all too common conversation I have with people when talking to them about search engine optimization through the use of keyword articles. Many of the people I talk to do not really know what search engine optimization is, much less what keyword articles are. Too often I see people who turn to the Internet as a way to make money but do not understand how to go from making a little money to having a booming business. Internet businesses are often times rather easy to operate and generate a good return on investment, but what if those returns on investment could double? Triple? More?
Consider this, when I did a search for "jewelry accessories" on Google there are 23,500,000 results listed at the time of this article writing. After looking at about three pages I stopped looking to see if her website was listed. This is typical for people who do searches for keywords like jewelry accessories. If they do not find what they are looking for in the first two or three pages they will generally stop looking and try other keyword combinations. Most people are not going to sift through 235 sites, much less 23,500,000 listings. The more you sift through the sites the less likely they are to be good matches to what you were looking for anyway.
Keyword articles could improve her search engine results a great deal. Keyword articles most often come up when someone types in "jewelry accessories" and other relevant keyword combinations. Creating articles that provide information, as well as adhere to a keyword density formula, is a major component as to how your website will get ranked higher in the search engine results.
Most often, it does take some time for Google and Yahoo to crawl the keyword articles on your website. You will not see an instant ranking increase the day you post these articles on your website. The major search engine companies prefer to find a website by way of a "natural" search. This is why inbound links to your site are also important. You can set the Revisit meta tag on your sitemap page to better represent the frequency by which you add new content to your site. Try to be accurate with this setting --- if you try to cheat the system, the search engine robots will eventually stop coming.
Sites that are discovered by the search engine robots through a natural search --- links from another website --- will be crawled far sooner than the site whose webmaster uses the Add URL link at the search engine's main website.
My friend did not realize the potential increase keyword-rich articles could have on her business and did not want to invest the money into developing this content. She was more concerned with the "now" and not the future returns that she could get from investing now in strategic marketing activities. It does cost some money to have keyword densities developed as well as having the articles written. It is also important to know what keywords to use. Keyword combinations can easily be researched on the Internet by using sites such as http://www.wordtracker.com. once all of this is determined, the articles can be written and then posted to the website. There are many companies, such as http://www.keywordtext.com, that offer these types of services for a reasonable price.
Is the cost of doing this type of marketing worthwhile? Well that is up to the website owner to decide. If the website owner wants to see strong gains in the amount of hits his or her website is getting, then yes. The more people who visit your website, the more likely you are to sell your product or service. You may have a wonderful website and sell a great product or service, but if no one can find it, you are not meeting your potential.
How do you find products or services that you need? Do you look on the Internet? The phone book? Newspapers? Whatever method you choose to do your own shopping, you know that advertising and marketing produces results. You do not purchase goods and services from companies you cannot find. Do yourself and your business a favor and get some keyword articles written, so that you can watch your website traffic and sales soar.
