Keyword Search Your Website
It's not always about me, this post is for other people and not publicized for my own benefit. Besides, there's only so many ways you can re-arrange "Home Inspector" in my arsenal of keywords..enjoy!
Is your keyword or phrase even showing up on Google? What pages of my website are my keyword phrases showing up on?
I stumbled upon this myself and I'm sure it's probably very common for SEO specialists but I thought I would share because it helped me with my keyword placement.
If you don't know what keyword placement is, AR has some awesome webinars that give you the "gist" of what they are. Understanding how important keywords are to attract potential clients to your website is essential, no it's an absolute necessity!!
If you even delve into this enough to understand placement, density, titles, meta tags.. remember one thing, you can never figure out the algorithm Google has to get on page ONE, position ONE because it always changes. It's very time consuming and once you find your pages ranking on page one, don't sit down (or stand I should say) because within a couple weeks it will slip to page 2 or even 3 or even 4.
Google wants FRESH content. It doesn't have to be NEW content.. however NEW trumps FRESH. (Ill dispense with the caps) Fresh content trumps everything else though as long as guidelines are followed. Those guidelines can be learned in the AR webinars or you can find them anywhere by just typing SEO (search engine optimization). You will get a plethora of information and everyone has their own opinion on which segment of SEO favors the other but if you ignore all the opinions you will see they all have similarities. Write down these similarities and focus on incorporating fresh content within your website, within these guidelines.
One helpful tool I stumbled upon tonight was utilizing quotations in Google search with my website to find out where my keywords are being "seen". What this does is help to determine how your hard work of optimizing your website is paying off.
So try this the next time your wondering how your website looks on Google. Type site:www.(your website)[space]"your keywords" and hit enter.
It will focus on your site and only your site and then find pages on your site that Google has indexed with your keywords.. Understand? I know it's difficult to understand but consider it like anything else.. if you practice you will understand just fine.
Keyword search your website site:www.(your website)[space]"your keyword or phrase"
