The ideal time to implement SEO is while creating the template design of the site, including navigation structure. At this point, many important elements should have been defined: keywords to target, content, architecture and navigation. If the design of your site is heading in a direction that is not search engine-friendly, an SEO pro can correct the issues before the entire site is developed - saving time and money.
Search engine-friendly design does not mean your site will now rank at the top of the search engines, but that the search engines can find and index your pages. Search engine optimization is the process of preparing each page of your site to gain top search rankings for specific search terms.
A site that has not been designed to be easily indexed by the search engine crawlers will require changes - sometimes significant changes - in order to become search engine-friendly. Because search engines are text-based, some design decisions can cause indexing problems, such as:
- Requiring cookies on your website prevents spiders from indexing your content.
- Web pages that require users to input information to access the content blocks search engines.
- Shopping cart systems that invoke session IDs block search engines
- Frames, large amounts of Flash or AJAX blocks search engines
The rest of the SEO process involves:
- Keyword research and analysis
- Content and copywriting for SEO
- Optimization techniques
- Link building
- Determining the ongoing maintenance plan for top rankings
- Testing and measuring for optimal ROI
Each of these stages is critical to the overall success of gaining top search engine positions and maintaining them. Typically, search engine optimization requires 3-6 months to see results and, therefore, is a long-term Internet marketing strategy that gains momentum over time.
If your approach to SEO is like a "plug and chug" formula, you will be disappointed with the results. Every business is different and the SEO plan for that business should be as well - something we refer to affectionately as tailored Internet marketing.
