Web Hosting Tips for Creating an SEO-Optimized Site

Finding the right hosting service is essential for every website. In fact, it is the very foundation of your site, your brand and your entire business.

Finding the right hosting service is essential for every website. In fact, it is the very foundation of your site, your brand and your entire business. Any possibility of downtime of the server can damage everything you have worked so hard to develop over the years. If you are serious about the website you have created, then ensuring you are in good hands is essential. You must also ensure that your website is poised as it should be for ultimate success and traffic. Understanding web hosting One of the first things you have to understand is exactly what web hosting is. When a website is created, the information has to be stored someplace online. This needs to be easy to access by potential visitors all around the world. The company that provides bandwidth and space for websites is referred to as the web hosting service.

What type of web hosting do you need? There are a number of different web hosting options available, with the three major ones being: dedicated, reseller and shared.

  • Dedicated: This is when you want to ensure your website is the only one on a server. While it is more costly than the other options, it is good if you have a large website with lots of daily traffic.
  • Shared: This allows you to share server space with other businesses. This is a very affordable option for businesses that may have a smaller budget.
  • Reseller: For anyone attempting to begin their own web hosting business.

You should carefully consider what type of hosting provider would be right for you. Do you have large amounts of traffic on a consistent basis? If so, you should choose a dedicated server. Yet, if you have a smaller business, want a website but don’t want to spend too much money, then the shared server will be the best option. Don’t fall for the free domain gimmick While a free domain may sound appealing, there are a certain number of things you should consider prior to agreeing to this:

  • Who actually owns the domain? While the domain may be free, the hosting company will retain ownership of it. This means that you will either be stuck with the company forever, or have to purchase the domain for a large amount.
  • Renewal cost? While the first year may be fore, they may charge you a hefty sum to renew it. In some cases this can be 200 percent more than the average cost of a domain name.

It is a good idea to ask plenty of questions while you are researching in order to understand who will actually own the domain and that the renewal fees are at an acceptable rate. What to consider when purchasing web hosting Now that you have a basic understanding of the way web hosting works, there are certain things you need to consider prior to making a purchase:

  • Price: How much does the web hosting company charge for services?
  • Space: How much space is offered with the service for your files and other information?
  • Bandwidth: You need to ensure the bandwidth can support the traffic you have coming to your site.
  • Support and Safety: Any quality service will offer round the clock service for issues or questions.
  • Control Panel: You need to find a service that offers an easy to use and understand control panel.
  • OS: The operating system will play a huge role in how the web hosting service is managed.

Make sure to back everything up While most web hosting providers claim to provide backup services for websites, you should still do your own. This will ensure that no matter what happens with the web hosting service, you have the information you need to get your site back online quickly. If you fail to do this and the web hosting service goes under, shuts down or goes offline you may find that you o longer have your website or the information that was on it. Avoid long-term contracts There are a number of companies that may try to rope you into service for two or more years. However, having to be locked into something like this may be detrimental to your company. Signing up on a month to month basis may be ideal for smaller companies that are unsure of how to keep the site up and going or if it will be successful. When it comes to the hosting service you choose, you cannot afford to cut corners or take chances on an unknown company that you cannot find may reviews about. This may leave you with a website that simply does not perform the way you need it to. Using the tips and information here will help you find the right web hosting service and ensure it is implemented in a way that will ensure success for your business and for your website.

Why Responsive Web Design is Important For SEO

If you’re not considering mobile as part of your digital marketing strategy, you need to pinch yourself and ask why not!

If you’re not considering mobile as part of your digital marketing strategy, you need to pinch yourself and ask why not! Back in April, Google launched their ‘mobilegeddon’ algorithm which looked to knock down the rankings (on a mobile search, at least) those sites who aren’t mobile friendly; the justification being that those sites which DO offer a mobile-friendly version offer a far better level of user experience. Of course, this means that if your businesses website isn’t responsive, you’re missing out on opportunities and likely almost freely giving work away to your competitors.  Here we’ve teamed up with Newcastle-Upon-Tyne web designers, Way Fresh. to outline just why responsive web design is SO important for SME’s.

Superior User Experience

The bottom line of responsive web design is that you’ll be offering EVERY USER a superior browsing experience, regardless of the device which they’re using. Whether they’re using a desktop, tablet or mobile device, they’ll be using a site that works for them and displays content accordingly.  In a world of multiple different sizes of phones, tablets and desktop displays, offering a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution is no longer acceptable and you’ll quickly find that you’re neglecting large parts of your target market.

The trick with responsive web design is knowing what to display.  For example, a mobile version doesn’t necessarily need to display every little detail like a slider, but on a desktop site, it would make more sense.  It’s about creating a compromise in which the user experience and expectations are delivered across each device. If a slider takes up too much screen space on mobile, ditch it!  It’s more important that your mobile version is easy to navigate.

Better Conversion Rates

If you’re not serving an optimized site based upon different devices, you’re almost certainly missing out on all important conversions. If a user is struggling to find what they’re looking for when browsing on a mobile site or even has to zoom in and scroll to see what you’re offering, there’s a good chance they’ll leave your site and look elsewhere. Even if you’ve got a superior offering, first impressions really do count and it’s absolutely vital that you consider your conversion path.

Responsive web design allows you to offer calls to action based upon the needs and requirements of a browser on different devices, while still utilizing only one main site rather than sub-domains or separate mobile sites.

The bottom line of any business and website is to encourage conversions, and without a responsive site, you’ll quickly find that you’ll struggle to achieve this.

Better Search Rankings

As outlined above, Google rolled out their ‘mobile-friendly’ update back in April, and as such, it should now be seen almost as a necessity to offer a premium mobile browsing experience. While you may have previously held onto strong mobile search positions with a desktop-only site, you’ll now likely struggle without placement on mobile devices as mobile searches are estimated to have now surpassed desktop searches; that’s a lot of potential traffic to be missing out on!

The search engines are still THE single most important method of discovery for suppliers of both products and services across most industries and the last thing you want is to be losing ground due to having an outdated desktop-only website.

At the end of the day, responsive isn’t the future of web design, it’s the present, and if you’re not utilizing it as part of your mobile search strategy, there’s every chance you’re missing out on all important deals.

Enhance Your Search Engine Listing With Rich Snippets

Rich Snippet displays additional data from other pages about the resources being displayed in the search result. In order to work, webmasters must incorporate open standards such as microdata, microformats or RDFa in their web pages.  Google does not guarantee that the use of these open standards will result in rich snippets, but webmasters have the option to contact Google [...] The post Enhance Your Search Engine Listing With Rich Snippets appeared first on Avada...

Rich Snippet displays additional data from other pages about the resources being displayed in the search result. In order to work, webmasters must incorporate open standards such as microdata, microformats or RDFa in their web pages.  Google does not guarantee that the use of these open standards will result in rich snippets, but webmasters have the option to contact Google for its inclusion.

Why use Rich Snippets?

The listing with the Rich Snippet ranked higher than the listing without. Snippets—the few lines of text that appear under every search result—are designed to give users a sense for what’s on the page and why it’s relevant to their query.

webmasters_99170_rsreview_en1

If Google understands the content on your pages, it can create rich snippets, detailed information intended to help users with specific queries. For example, the snippet for a restaurant might show the average review and price range; the snippet for a recipe page might show the total preparation time, a photo, and the recipe’s review rating; and the snippet for a music album could list songs along with a link to play each song. These rich snippets help users recognize when your site is relevant to their search, and may result in more clicks to your pages.

Types of Rich Snippets:

  • Breadcrumbs
  • Events
  • Music
  • Organizations
  • People
  • Products
  • Recipes
  • Review ratings
  • Reviews
  • Software applications
  • Videos

How to implement?

Pick a data format and include the markup in your content.  Google suggests using microdata, as outlined at schema.org, but any of the three formats below are acceptable. You don’t need any prior knowledge of these formats, just a basic knowledge of HTML. Mark your content. Google supports rich snippets for these content types:

  • Reviews
  • People
  • Products
  • Businesses and organizations
  • Recipes
  • Events
  • Music

You can find formatting help here. Next test your data with the Rich Snippet Tool.

Make sure to also setup Google Authorship

Why again you ask?  Simply because the page with the Google Authorship tag ranked higher than the listing without.

  1. Create a Google+ Profile
    • Remember to upload a high quality headshot and fill out some profile information such as hometown, etc.
  2. Go to plus.google.com/authorship, sign up with your email and click on the verification link sent to you.

If you don’t want to verify your email address, you can also link your content to your Google profile. Set up authorship by linking your content to your Google+ profile Create a link to your Google+ profile from your webpage, like this: [box type=”shadow” ]<a href=”[profile_url]?rel=author”>Google</a>[/box] Replace [profile_url] with the your Google+ profile URL, like this: [box type=”shadow” ]<a href=”https://plus.google.com/112643716740116237079?rel=author”>Google</a>[/box] Your link must contain the ?rel=author parameter. If it’s missing, Google won’t be able to associate your content with your Google+ profile. Add a reciprocal link back from your profile to the site(s) you just updated. Edit the Contributor To section of your Google+ profile.  In the dialog that appears, click Add custom link, and then enter the website URL.  If you want, click the drop-down list to specify who can see the link. Click Save.

authorship-serp1

Done

That’s it! Once you’ve added and tested your rich snippets markup, Google will discover it the next time we crawl your site. A few points to note:

  • It may take some time for rich snippets to appear in search results or Place Pages.
  • If rich snippets aren’t appearing for your site, see possible reasons why.
  • Marking up your data for rich snippets won’t affect your page’s ranking in search results, and Google doesn’t guarantee to use your markup.

How would you feel if you knew your blog was annoying users? There’s a good chance you would like to fix the problem. However, you can‘t fix it unless you know it exits. Take a minute to find out if you’re guilty of any of these annoying blog habits.

No “About Me” Section

Blogs are meant to tear down walls and bridge the gap between customers and businesses, or bloggers and readers. That won’t work if you don’t have an “About Me” section set up on your blog. Your “About Me” section should include a picture, and it should tell people why you have the knowledge necessary to run the blog. If people don’t see an “’About Me” section, they won’t trust you, so they won’t stick around.

No Comments

This annoying trend is on the rise. Some blog owners don’t like what their readers have to say, so they disable the comments. That completely takes away the point of running a blog. You are supposed to interact with people. Keep your comments enabled and deal with negative comments if they come your way. Otherwise, your readers will go somewhere else so they can express themselves.

Lack of Original Content

More and more people are using their blogs to aggregate content. That’s fine, but you also need to provide your readers with something fresh and new. If you don’t, they will go elsewhere.

You can create original posts Monday through Thursday, and then post something from another blog on Friday. As long as you post original content most of the time, your readers won’t mind aggregated content here and there.

Too Much Selling

Some blog owners just try to sell. They spend all of their time and energy telling people to buy their products. Again, this is really annoying. If you’re always trying to sell something, you will lose your readers. Provide helpful content. That should be the point of your blog.

Bad Design

Bad design really annoys readers. They can’t stand not being able to find what they are looking for, so keep that in mind when looking at WordPress themes. Go with a theme that has a good design so you can keep your readers happy.

If you are annoying your readers, you still have time to fix it. Go through and make some changes and then see if your readers take notice. They might start interacting more, or maybe they will stick around and read more posts.
