Targeting your customers using SEO

SEO with puzzle and world map, search engine optimization, flatThere are millions of people on the internet every minute of every day. Each one of these people could potentially be your customer. Do you know how to ensure you attract the right individuals that will become customers? By effectively using SEO you can do just that.

Let’s say you live in Melbourne, Florida. You are searching for the best value on a new refrigerator. When you pull up your search engine; Google, Yahoo, Bing or any other, you will most likely type “refrigerator” into the search box. Since refrigerators are listed on your website, that customer stands a good chance at seeing your website on the list of sites recommended by the search engine. You need to put the appropriate text on your site to draw a customer to you. The customer is not going to type in “food cooling apparatuses” so don’t stretch out the description of what you are offering. This is called “keyword stuffing” and went out of practice a long time ago. Doing that will only frustrate someone and they will move on to another website that is more concise. Keep the title of your business relevant to your product. Titling your website “Melbourne’s best coffee” may sound like a good idea, but if using that brings a potential customer to a bed and breakfast website, it isn’t going to help you out at all.

Is it Shark Week or Shark Month?

Great White SharksShark Week first aired in 1988 on the Discovery Channel. Since then, it has become a world-wide cultural phenomenon.  It is broadcast in over 72 countries and is the longest-running cable television event in history.  There are some really neat factual shows broadcast during this week on the Discovery channel, as well as a few slightly exaggerated fictional shows designed more to entertain than educate.  But let’s face it – many people also can’t wait to tune in for the purely fictitious shark shows, such as Sharknado on the Syfy channel.

Here in the Melbourne/Palm Bay area of Florida, we don’t just watch for sharks on TV. We live it.  It lasts more than a week.  In fact, it lasts more than a month.  Florida is sometimes known as the Shark Attack Capital of the World! Continue reading
