Search engine optimization
Most answers and purchases start with a search on search engines such as Google and Yahoo. In most countries Google is in this case the most used search engine. Getting your website to show up on the first page for a competitive keyword often has monetary consequences.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the art of creating and adapting pages so that you get better rankings with search engines. Over the years SEO has seen quite some changes. In the late nineties, when Google started their PageRank algorithm was a radical change. Links towards a website would indicate trust of one website in another and the receiver of the link would get a slightly better reputation from each link.
In the past five years this has changed a bit. Incoming links are still very important, but to a much lesser degree. And overdoing it with the incoming links inevitably leads to a punishment from Google these days. This is why on page SEO rules are more important than ever. This is where our tool comes in: it will let you instantly know what to do next to rank better.
Automated SEO tools
In developing this SEO Tool our departure point was easy: How Can We Automate Our SEO Workflow? Well, by scripting it! This is how our SEO automation tools were born. It’s a tool that analyses directly the next opportunities for your website. How does it work? It pulls data from Google about how your website performs on their search platform. We combine that data with a quick SEO scan on that same website. The outcome of our algorithms tell us what to do next in order to further improve our website rankings.
These suggestions are subsequently easy to understand and can be very basic suggestions to more complex ones. For example, include this keyword in your title or in your page-description. Or include a new paragraph with this long tail keyword as your sub-header. Within a week after implementing these suggestions we generally see improved rankings. Firstly for the newly suggested keywords, but also overall we witnessed our websites getting higher rankings in search engines. This knowledge is what we now want to share.
We’re not building an SEO automation platform, we’re focusing on doing a very limited but essential part that we know works well for us.
