Bare Minimum SEO

Proven SEO

If you don’t have the resources for a full SEO campaign, you don’t have to worry. The good news is that you can get away with bare minimum SEO. This will enable you to be competitive enough even with your limited resources. For smaller businesses and some larger ones, SEO is not an option because of various reasons.

Let’s take a look at minimal SEO tasks that you need to keep up with the competition.

Monitor Indexing Status

Bare Minimum SEOThe first step to ensure that your site will be found by many searchers is indexing. You can check indexing status by usingGoogle Webmaster Tools. This will let you see the pages on your website that are indexed by Google. Just log in and click on Health then Index Status on the left side menu.

You can also click on the Advanced button to find other important information. Look at the number of indexed pages and try to see if there is an indication of a problem. If too few pages are indexed or too many are “not selected” then you have a problem. If this is the case then the next step of this bare minimum SEO process will help you solve your problem.

Pecados capitales en #SEO al posicionar una página #web

Pecados capitales en #SEO al posicionar una página #web

En este artículo voy a recoger los errores SEO más habituales para posicionar una página web. Debido a la gran competencia que tenemos en nuestras palabras clave, debemos de ser muy conscientes en lo que hacemos. Por eso, es muy importante tener en cuenta los pecados capitales en SEO.

1- Desconocimiento de nuestras palabras clave:

Uno de los principales errores que se cometen cuando construimos nuestra web es pasar por alto realizar una investigación de keyword para nuestro posicionamiento web. En muchos casos, las prisas se apoderan de nosotros y no prestamos atención a este análisis previo que es vital para nuestro éxito. El resultado es que al final de todo, hemos construido algo en base a determinadas keywords que no tienen un volumen crítico de búsquedas, así que estaremos en la más absoluta soledad, después de echar horas y horas construyendo nuestro sitio. Nuestro objetivo es construir un sitio con demanda, y por lo tanto a partir de ahí, buscaremos nuestro posicionamiento web.

En este artículo ya te expliqué los pasos básicos que debes de dar para tu análisis de keywords. Como mínimo échale un vistazo a la herramienta de Adwords que te ofrece Google, pero si quieres afinar más, haz uso de algún software específico de SEO ya que te dará mucha más información. Insisto, analiza bien qué palabras clave quieres para tu posicionamiento web, que demanda tiene, el valor económico y qué competencia está luchando por esas keywords.

En este vídeo verás una buena búsqueda de keywords con más herramientas y podrás ver el grado de profundidad al que puedes llegar. No te quedes en lo superficial, haz todo lo que esté a tu alcance para analizar a tu competencia.

Google Keyword Tool

The search volume for this tool is Monthly so depending what other tools you are using, you may need to make adjustments if you want to be able to compare data across tools. If local search engine traffic is important to you, be sure to pay attention to the “Local Monthly Searches” column (not shown in the screen print).

I personally do not recommend comparing the information from various tools to each other. I recommend that you choose one tool and stick with it. That way, you know you are comparing apples to apples.

The goal here is to look for phrases that apply to your website and will likely convert the visitor into a buyer/customer.

If your website is less than a year old, you should probably focus on phrases toward the bottom of the list. If your website is older and you are good at acquiring backlinks, then you can probably pull from the top results as well.

Look for long-tail keyword phrases. That means look for the longer phrases that are more targeted. If your website sells women’s shoes but only “high-heel wedding shoes”, you might not want to optimize for “women’s shoes” as someone looking for sandals or tennis shoes would not be your potential customer. As soon as they hit your page and see you do not have what they want, they’re gone anyway.

Review the results from your search. Choose 5-10 keyword phrases you believe you can get ranked for. If you’re a beginner at creating keyword-rich content, you’ll probably want to target only two keyword phrases per page or post. Your main keyword phrase will be your primary and the other is considered secondary.

Google Keyword Tool

Google Adwords is an advertising program which allows you to create ads and have them run alongside searches at Google thankfully allows free use of the tool that advertisers use to determine their best keywords. That tool is what we will be talking about today. It is very powerful and can give you more than enough information to determine which keywords to target for your website or blog.

Supplies Needed:

  • Computer with Internet Connection
  • List of Keyword Phrases you want to research

Step 1: Navigate to the tool in your browser

If you plan to use Google’s Adwords tool very often, you’ll probably want to bookmark it. You can always find it by going to Google and typing Google Adwords Keyword tool. It will most likely be #1. :o) The URL is

Step 2: Conduct your keyword search.

When doing keyword research, I recommend you start with at least 10 keyword phrases that you want to research. These would be keyword phrases you believe apply (or will apply) to your business website. If you already have a website, you can review your stats to see which phrases are already bringing you traffic. If you haven’t optimized for the phrase and you are already getting some traffic, imagine how much more you can get if you create a page or post and optimize it specifically for that phrase. Please avoid one-word keywords (i.e. gluten) as it is usually very hard to rank for these. Do a good enough job with your keyword phrases though and you may end up ranking for a few one-word keywords.

Ok, let’s get started. In the box that says “Word of phrase (one per line)”, enter your keyword phrase and then click on the Search button. (If needed, change the Location.)

Step 3: Evaluate your results.

After you click on the Search button, wait a few seconds for your results to appear.

Below is just the top 6 results. If you do not see the competition column, click on the “Columns” button (top right of the screen) and choose which columns you want then search again. You will want to play around with the settings to see which ones work best for you. Given screen print limitations, I am only showing the first few columns here. The other columns give you some very helpful information so do not be afraid to experiment. Leer más “Google Keyword Tool”
