Things That Must Be Considered When Looking For SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
Before SEO can begin there are other aspects to consider. These include domain names, keywords and competitors in your industry. Most web masters do begin by choosing a domain name. Choosing a domain name should always be carried out by an expert, as choosing the wrong domain can set you back when you are looking for SEO. There are many good domain brokers available, including Go Daddy. Go Daddy also has a domain auction which is a good idea, as you can find older domains, and there is also a good chance you can find a domain that has already has PR. There are also many websites available were you can search for expired domains at auction with PR. This is always handy, as if you look regularly you will find a suitable domain in your industry. Choosing the correct domain from day one can save you a lot of time when considering SEO or search engine optimisation, as the search engines do favour older domains.
The next stage would be to select keywords. Keywords are used when searching for products or services online. For example if you were an SEO company based in the UK keywords most suitable would be SEO UK, and the same would apply if you were based in Glasgow keywords that would apply would be SEO Glasgow.
SEO or search engine optimisation does take several months to see good results on the search engines for competitive keywords. However if your keywords were local, top positions should be seen much faster, as local keywords will not be as competitive as there will be less businesses in your local area than on a national basis.
The above steps will save you a lot of headache, but many web masters do get this wrong from day one, and if you are unsure about any steps it is a good idea to consult a reputable SEO company who will have the knowledge to get this correct in day one.
