Recently we have been working on a project to launch a new business portal in the crowdfunding sphere. The site aims to provide information and sell services to prospective crowdfunders. Launching a crowdfunding campaign itself is much akin to launching a website – you want to get as many people interacting with your brand as quickly as possible.
If you’ve been investigating SEO you’ll have undoubtedly been exposed to the idea of outreach. Outreach is a process of securing exposure and links on other websites to increase your own marketing reach.
Traditionally we did this simply for links. In the days of SEO gone by we built as many links as possible to achieve better rankings in the search engines.
The internet has evolved considerably since this point and quality outreach now has a different role to play – we are more selective and we want different things.
I was recently fortunate enough to spend a day out of the office at BrightonSEO – the UK’s top SEO conference. I thought it would be good to share with you some of the key insights I gleaned from the excellent speakers and workshops I attended throughout the day. With SEO there is a constant source of new inspiration and I came away feeling excited about a host of new concepts and ideas.
The best SEO techniques or practices change as Google’s guidelines evolve, but the thing that remains unchanged is the significance of links. Besides the existence of other basic concerns like crawlability, indexation, architecture of the site and duplicate content, link acquisition or link building needs to be a primary consideration.
I am becoming more and more convinced that Google wants to utilise all the data collected in Google Analytics and utilise it to determine page rank.
