If you are serious about Web Site Development you probably use a strategic approach like this.

Strategic Web Design

Strategic Web Design

1. Idéa. Initial meetings. We all go in Creative Mode where nothing is impossible. And the purpose of the site gets clear.

2. Market Research. Is it a great idea? How much income do we expect from the website? Who and where are the competitions, similar products, supporting products? What are the website users primary and secondary needs? Market Research is the very foundation for creating a strategic website and the strategic SEO that is needed.

3. Design. Drawings, models, communication, demos, reviews. Images and copy are created.

4. Programming. Cms is chosen from design demands, strategic goals and maintenance. The technical part of SEO is implemented.

5. Site Test for a limited amount of visitors and adjustments are made.

6. Launch.  Some times with trumpets and cannons- sometimes with waving flags and honors.

7. Marketing and Strategic SEO are processes that runs through the lifetime of the web site. Do you want a website noone knows about?

There are two things many developers tend to treat lightly.

The first is Market Research and without this it is impossible to create a strategic design and do strategic SEO, and without Market Research you don’t know if the site is profitable.

The second is Marketing. It is simply not enough to post a website. Absolutely noon will find the website without Marketing. Google will find it but that alone will not help you!

Making money using AdSense is not as easy as it used to be.  But it is possible to make some.

The most important factor is visitors. To make $4.000 you need approximately 20.000 visitors a day! Of course these numbers are based on:

  1. How targeted your visitors are
  2. The size of the ads
  3. The placement of the ads
  4. The type of ads
  5. Great backlinks

The above numbers from some of our sites where the visitors are pretty targetted.

1. Targetted visitors.
The hard part is always getting traffic. It really takes an effort and a long time to get enough visitors.

  • You get targetted visitors from
  • Having a fanpage on relevant Social Media like Facebook, YouTube  and Twitter.
  • Create a video for YouTube (You can use Fiverr.com) to drive traffic to your site.
  • Search Engine Optimization.
  • Writing articles on popular topics.
  • Forum and blog posting.
  • Use automation to some degree, but not so much that there is no personality in your postings.
  • Don’t use AdWords to drive traffic. AdWords clicks will most likely cost you more than you will earn on AdSense clicks. That is why Google makes so much money.

2. The size of the ads.
In AdSense you can chose between different adsizes. You have to experiment and see what works for you, but AdSense has some recommendations.

3. The placement of the ads.
You also have to experiment with placement but start out by placing one or two in the top of your pages (above the fold).

4. Type of ads.
In AdSense you can select text ads, image ads or both. Google recomend both but also here you have to experiment. You can also deselect publishers you don’t want to show ads from.

5. The design of the ads.
Chose colors and fonts that makes the ads blend in.

6. Great backlinks.
Backlinks from high ranking pages will help your site rank in Google and get more visitors from organic search results.

7. Content.
You need great content that people find helpful. Downloads, articles or what ever you can offer that is relevant. A lot of it! Try to get people to sign up for a news letter too and keep sending them mails regularly.

8. Multiple sites.
It is hard to get 20.000 visitors pr. day at one single website, but you can have more than one web site using AdSense. 10 sites only need 2.000 visitors pr. day.

9. Consider using YouTube.
Any body can use AdSense at YouTube today.

10. Find the most expensive ads to promote.
Use the AdWords keyword reserach tool to find keywords that are expensive and create a blog or postings around these keywords. AdSense reads your content and will match the ads.

This is a few examples of sites using AdSense:

These two projects are just initiated and they will be stuffed with more content regularly:

Search engine optimization is one way to get free targeted traffic to your site. You can’t just put your site out on the net and expect to get other visitors than crawler bots and spam bots – and maybe a few of your friends – if you tell them where to go!

Without search engine optimization your site will simply never show up in Google.
This article has been written around a long tail keyword: “About search engine optimization” and you should do the same. Keyword research is a reality check on your idea! Will it rank or not.

Go to Google Adwords and sign up for an account. AdWords has a free keyword tool and you better use it!

When you analyze or search for keywords using the AdWords keyword tool, there are two columns you should pay attention to. (Also remember to set the region you will examine). Monthly searches and competition. Competition is a weighted number between 0 and 1. 0-0,33 is low competition. 0,33-0,66 is medium competition and 0,66 – 1 is high competition.

The old saying about high search volume and low competition is not quite true. You have to see competition in relation to monthly searches – not in relation to other keywords competition factor. Here is an example with two keyword phrases which have the same competition but different search volumes:

Keyword
About search engine optimization
wordpress permalink seo
Monthly searches
9900
40
Competition
0,01
0,01

It looks tempting to go for “about search engine optimization” but if you try a Google search (remember the “”) you get 6.650.000 results and when you search for “wordpress permalink seo” you only get 7.700 results.

 

So even though both keywords have the same competition,  “about search engine optimization” is much harder to rank for than “wordpress permalink seo”.

about search engine optimization

Strike!

How do I get on Google ?…

…You may just ask yourself when you are looking to rank your new WordPress site in Google: “How do I get on Google”? The answer is simple. To get your site listed in the Google Index you have to work a little. Here is the recipe:

Content is King:

  1. Write your article as exciting, riveting and honest you can. 300-400 words is great more will do just fine.
  2. Ad an image or two and put your keyword in the Alt tags

Keyword research:

  1. Install the plugin WordPress SEO by Yoast.
  2. Go to AdWords and sign up for an account. AdWords has a great and free keyword tool.
  3. Find all the keywords related to your niche and put them in a spreadsheet or a list.
  4. Chose one main keyword and maybe a few related and see if you can use them in your post without ruining the greatness of your article

Authority:

  • Get backlinks (links from other sites pointing to your article). We don’t recomend buying links. Google is perfectly aware this is going on and you just might hurt your rankings. I know people do this and it works with in limits. So be careful.
  • Write more articles. Great articles will be read and people will link to them. Post your articles at high ranking article sites.

Social Media:

  • Be present on the Social Media sites that are relevant. Facebook fanpages, LinkedIn, Twitter. Google Maps and Google+ is a must! A Google+ account linked to your site will rank your site better in Google. Unfair but true!
