Search Engine Optimisation

These practices should be implemented since the beginning, here you are a summary:

  • Conduct a keyword study before thinking about the content and tree structure of a website. This semantic analysis will make it possible to define different topics and construct a logical, coherent structure.
  • Choice of Semantic Domain Names which include explicit “keywords” that can be easily index the Service / Product you want to emphasise.
  • A primary domain name with several “aliases” to increase indexation (2-5 different domain names for example).
  • Canonical hyperlinks with a clear syntax such as “domain.com/<product-service-name-town-etc.>“.
  • Include HTML meta descriptions into images such as “title=” that are visible in the source code.
  • Create a sitemap.xml file that will list all the pages of the website. This will help search engine to index all the content.
  • Coherence using heading titles and sub-titles such as “h1, h2, h3″, etc. (Header 1, Header 2, etc.) in every page.
  • Cross-links with partners or external sources.
  • A lot of text content (paragraphes) with detailed information without too much redundancy.
  • A SSL certificate for https encryption.
  • Use new responsive technologies, avoid “404 not found” pages, perform regular monitoring.

  • Install Open-Source Matomo as a local analytics tool to regularly improve your indexation.

Analyse your business model

Behind many websites there is a business model, followed by a step-by-step plan to have the website communicating across the internet more effectively. Our ultimate goal is to get our clients more visitors and higher conversion of sales and leads. But for sure, the website is not self-sufficient. Marketing goes behind search engines. Customers must be aware that they need to build a personal network, a online & off-line communication which creates confidence and relationships between people you want to make business.



Algorithm Penalties

The Webmaster should be aware that among the most well-known updates, there are Google Panda (2011: for “low-quality sites”) and Google Penguin (2012: decreasing search engine rankings of websites that violate Google’s Webmaster Guidelines). These two updates have the goal of penalizing sites of poor quality.

The first one, Google Panda, penalized all sites with duplicate content, i.e., all sites that used content they did not own. The content present on a site must therefore be unique, relevant, and interesting to web users. Content is king, so take the time to draft quality content.

The second algorithmic penalty is called Google Penguin. This penalty consists of downgrading sites benefiting from poor-quality or overly external links in an inappropriate way. So, favor links that will generate traffic for you, from sites with high popularity and confidence.


Manual Penalties

Google employees are tasked with surfing the web and penalising sites that don’t respect their instructions. In the case of a manual penalty, a message is sent to the webmaster of the site in question from the Google webmaster center, and the site is downgraded in the search results, i.e., it will move down over all the “keywords” that generate traffic for it. And when a penalty like this is levied, it is not always easy to recover.



On-Page & Off-Page Optimization

The search engine is a robot, therefore, you must follow a proven process to educate the algorithm that brings your website up when your potential customers are searching for specific business through the search engines.
