Search Engine Optimization

I have posted numerous articles about search engine optimization (SEO) over the years. Many techniques that were relevant 10 years ago are not today. In fact, many search engines that were around in the '90's no longer exist for all practical purposes.

Some of the underlying basics do remain the same, and that is what many of my posts have been about, so I would encourage you to dig back in the archives . . . or search for seo and search engine optimization to pull them up.

You can view this article on search engine optimization for some general information as well.

If you do have a GraphicalData website, and are not ranking as well as you might like, give us a call or email . . . we have a great history of understanding what it takes to help them rise to the top.

Search Engine Optimization Hints

In the good ole days, it was modestly easy to SEO a site and have it rank well on the search engines. It is much more difficult to do today, and there are so many factors. Content that is on the page, Content that is "behind the page", "off the page" factors such as links to your site and PR.

Often it is not even what should do, but what you should not do. Read this article on top SEO mistakes to avoid.

The good news is that a GraphicalData website in its pure form adheres to these criteria. However, sometimes in our rush to look cool or have bells and whistles on our site, we can actually hurt ourselves in the it relates to ranking in the search engines. If showing well in the search engine results is not important, then this would be less of an issue. For most of us, we want to be on the front page of results, so this brief article provides some food for thought.
