SEO Video Blog – Organic SEO Timescales #36
Hi and welcome to this weeks SEO video blog, today we’re going to discuss organic SEO timescales and whether an SEO consultant can successfully predict an accurate timescale for a client or a website to perform.
The first thing to consider when assessing the potential success of a website is the domain name. There are several factors that are well worth checking.
Domain age: If the domain has been around for a long time then it will probably hold some authority in Google or other search engines.
Domain content: This can link in with the domain age, if your website has had related content on the domain for a period of time, it contributes to a smooth optimization process.
Domain Authority or Page Rank: Google assigns each web page with a page rank, Page rank is a link analysis algorithm that depends on the incoming and outgoing links on a website or web page. I you are unfamiliar with PageRank, we’ve included a Wikipedia link on our supporting blog post.
Domain Choice: If the domain name contains a keyword, this again contributes towards helping organic listings. You can of course, get to page one without one, but it all helps.
The importance of domains can be overlooked, but if you are optimizing a brand new domain name, you run this risk of Google easily spotting your eager SEO activity and potentially getting sand-boxed as a result. All SEO activity must be natural.
Secondly have a look at the content throughout the site, if it already mentions the chosen keywords then this will help the site to perform. Remember the SEO saying: ‘Content is king’.
Current performance is another important factor, If your web site appears for its phrases already, raising the phrases is easier than ranking them from scratch.
Next is Backward link analysis: If your website has a Page Rank, then it will more than likely have links pointing to it from other websites. An SEO consultant should analyze these incoming links and asses whether they could be manipulated to better reflect the keywords and content on the target website.
If an SEO consultant correctly analyses these variables – it can help them to predict the success and timescales of a new keyword campaign.
