3 Simple Things You Can Do To Improve Your Website's SEO

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Nov 23, 2018 8:11:00 AM

We know. SEO is one of those terms that, if it’s not your line of work, can sound crazy intimidating up front. The earliest mention that can be found of SEO traces roughly back to 1997. This was the same year that Titanic smashed the box office, Hanson released their debut album, and Biggie Smalls was shot. The point? It’s been around a long time (it’s technically old enough to have a drink), and there’s no reason for any person with half a brain to still shy away from the very basics of SEO. Once you look under the bed, this monster is really no monster at all. You can tackle it with ease, we promise. Let’s take a look at three simple ways to do just that.

Ranking #1 In Google Is Not a Real Digital Marketing Goal

Posted by Gregg Alexander on Dec 15, 2015 10:00:00 AM

When I sit down for an initial meeting with a client to talk about their their business, I ask them what their digital marketing goals are. The common response is, "To rank #1 in Google at X keyword." Which I usually follow up with "Why?" The look I get is usually a bit dumbfounded, as if I obviously don't know the answer to the easiest question on earth. Think about it, why would you want your business to rank #1 on Google? The response I like the most is, "Because if we are ranking #1, that means we are doing good." Doing good at what? It's clear that many people equate a #1 ranking as an indicator of success, but sometimes I have to push my clients to think deeper. Success isn't measured in ranking for one keyword-- rankings don't equal money. Leads, sales or conversions equal money. In all honesty the need to rank #1 for that top keyword is closer to a middle school popularity contest than a measure of success. Step outside of the competitive mindset that Google has created and really think about your business. How is the success of your website really measured? What does your website need to do to help your company?
