A quick word on SEO

SEO is hands down… The best thing you can do for your website! There are so many different factors that come into play with SEO… Its un-real!

Don’t forget to incorporate SEO into your landing pages. Even if you use the iFramer/Rotator that I have given you, USE SEO! You can’t afford to have your CPA offers NOT be in the search engines. I’m posting about this because I recently started getting a few conversions off of one of my CPA offers. The only thing I can think of is that it is coming in via the Search Engines.

Now, I haven’t looked into the keywords that the site is indexed for. BUT you can bet I will look into it. Chances are, the keyword will be long tailed. I know it won’t be a one word deal (unless it’s a miss spelling), and the way this specific site is designed it shouldn’t be a two or three word phrase.

You can guide your site to be in a specific keyword or phrase depending on how you create the page. If I’m creating a poll from scratch and not using a template like Poll Factory or PPC-Coaches tool then I will ALWAYS create a title tag, meta tags (keyword and description), H1, h2 and Bold tags to include the keyword I want to target. I ‘ll place all these tags within the bulk content of the page itself.

Now you may think that your H1 tag is going to be the poll question… But it doesn’t have to be. You can create your polls question with the H3 tag, You will need to change the CSS so that it looks as if it is the H1 tag. This will help you “Manipulate” the Search Engines later on.

If you know PHP well enough you can create a page that is dynamic so that you can have a url like http://www.yourdomain.com/index.php?kw=Your+keyword

And if you know how to code an htaccess page well enough you can create the page to look like http://www.yourdomain.com/Your+keyword/

Then you can create a page like http://www.yourdomain.com/main.html that has a bunch of keywords that takes people to different dynamic pages. Thats the best way I have found to get your landing page or squeeze page index for MULTIPLE keywords. You just have to build some links to the main page so that it gets indexed and crawled.

In my specific case… The conversions are coming straight to the index.php page…

Very useful post.

What a lot of people forget about is to use the alt tag for images. In that alt tag (for example you can use the keyword you want to rank for. This helps to get a better keyword density for your page.

Targeting many long tail keywords will benefit your website’s organic traffic tremendously.. especially considering all the competition for generic keywords in the internet marketing niche.

Don’t forget that throwing on em (emphasis) tags around key words helps too!

I’ve seen websites that don’t use SEO friendly URL’s but they rank really well, strange!

I think it has a lot to do with the trust rank that Google gives each site.
