SEO (Search engine optimisation) is the process of increasing the volume & traffic quality to a website coming in from search engines via search results for the keywords which we have chosen as our targeted keywords. More higher the rankings achieved by a site in the search results, more will be the traffic as more searchers will visit that site. SEO can be bifurcated with different kinds of searches, that will include image search, local searches, and industry-specific vertical search engines.

SEO strategy to increase a site's relevance includes taking into consideration working of search engine algorithmss and what are people actually searching for. Complete SEO efforts may involve manipulating the site's coding structure & presentation, fixing errors/problems that could prevent search engine indexing programs from fully spidering a site. Coding errors become barriers for the search engine crawlers. We should also be aware of another form SEO techniques, known as Black Hat SEO or spamdexing, which use techniques such as link farms and keyword stuffing methods that tend to harm the search engine user experience. Search engines consider these as un-ethical and as soon as they figure out that a site is involved in un-ethical practices, the site gets banned from the SERP's.

Moving on after the Initial Site Analysis, we need to do the Site Analysis. Under the site analysis comes the various checks which need to be performed. The checks performed are:-

Google-Yahoo-MSN Indexing: We check the no of site pages indexed by Search Engines. This is carried out with the site search query.

We analyze the results and if the site is not indexed in any of the SE's then possibilities are that the site might be banned by the SE's. Other cases may be in case of new sites, they might be in the Sand Box period.

Google Internal / External Links from Google Webmaster : The links pointing to our site from different sites (i.e linking to our site) are known as External links. Internal links are the links from the various web pages of our site pointing to the home page of our site. Both of these need to be analyzed. More the no of Internal links, better is the anchor tag optimization; More the no of External links or the Back links, better is the weightage given to our site by the SE's.
The site needs to be verified in the webmasters to access the webmaster statistics.

Penalty Check : The site needs to be checked for penalty on it. If the site is penalised then it won't be included in the search engines result. To check whether the site is banned by Google or not, we use the If any black hat techniques are used to optimize the site, then the SE ban the site from their results. Re-inclusion of the site can be done by removing the spammy techniques used and then raising an re-inclusion request with the respective search engines.

Page Rank: We need to keep check on the Page rank of the site. If the page rank gets reduced then it shows that the site is loosing its value in terms of quality score. Page rank is basically the quality score given by Google in the scale of 1 to 10. Google itself has the PR of 10. has PR of 8. Better the PR, more is the chance of site being ranked in the SERP's with little SEO efforts.

Last Indexed Home page : Caching of the site needs to be checked regularly. If the site is getting cached regularly & frequently then it shows that the SE crawlers recognize the site as being updated frequently, i.e fresh content site. Implementing fresh content on the site attracts crawlers.

Average Crawl Rate : It is the frequency of the crawlers visiting the site. Avg crawl rate can be determined from webmasters tool.

Server Header Checks : The Server Headers needs to be analysed to keep an eye on the response the site is getting from the server every time a request is made for the site. If evrey thing is in place then "Http 200 Ok" is returned. If the site is permanently redirected then 301 header response is obtained.

404 Page Check : From webmasters tool, we check for the web crawl errors of page not found. These include the broken or missing links pointing to our site and indexed by Google. 404 pages need to 301 permanently redirected to the relevant pages of the site.

Canonical Issue : For most websites, the www and non-www versions both resolve to the same content but can be browsed independent, especially if using internal links without the full domain name.

Similarly it's often possible to view both and

The following urls could contain different content, but in most cases it is the same:

This gives rise to url canonicalization, whereby Google has to decide which url is the best represented from the possible options. This results in the distribution of the PR among the pages. In this scenario, we check the indexing of the site. If the site is indexed majorly by www version then we put a 301 permanent redirect from to

Invisible Text : We need to check for any hidden text present on the site. Hidden or Invisible text may result in the site being banned by SE's as this is considered as the Black Hat Technique.

Copyscape Check : The site needs to be checked with Copyscape to make sure that it doesnot contain any duplicate content. Duplicate content leads to site being penalized.

Domain Expiry Date : We need to keep an eye on the domain expiry date, so that it may be renewed before being expired.

W3C Validation : The site needs to be validated through W3C to check the HTML coding errors. We remove these errors to make the site easily crawlable by the SE crawlers.
Once you (web site owner) have decided to knock down your competitors out of the rankings, the you need to do the Initial Site Analysis of your campaign. By ISA we mean you need to jot down the specifications of your website. The following areas need to be considered:-

1. Domain Targeting Check:

If the web site is hosted in the location in which we are targeting our customers, then it is beneficiary for us. The website server hosting needs to be checked. Though, it does not have any negative impact of server being hosted in any location, yet shifting the site to targeted location based server would help in speeding up the visibility of the site in targeted domain.
For Ex-If the website server is hosted in Australia at present and we are targeting .com domain then shifting the site to United States based server would help in speeding up the visibility of site in .com domain.

2. Server Header Checks :

We check the server responses & server type in order to check if the responses returned from the server are proper. If any redirects are applied then they should be proper. We check the server type as the redirects can be easily done for Apache, but they need to be done from hosting company in case of Microsoft IIS.

Headers returned from:
The following is the snapshot of HTTP headers returned by the webserver to the browser. These headers provide information about the page and its content to the web browser.

3. Domain Registration :

Check out the registration date of the site domain. It would help in figuring out the following observations- If the site is not old enough and its not being ranked in SERP then the possibility is that the site may be in Sand Box ( as stated in the Sand Box Theory, new site do not get ranked for initial 6-8 months as Google verifies the site creditability)
If the site is old but still not ranking then it might be banned by the search engines or not properly optimized.

4. IP Ban Check :

We need to make sure that the site is not banned by search engines, as if banned it won't be included in the SERP.

5. On Site Checks :

Navigation Check
Flash Check
Frame Check
Coding Check
Traffic Script Check
W3C Validation
Home Page Size

After doing the initial site analysis we frame out the corrective measures to be taken to beat the competition.
In my next post, I would share how to proceed further.....

Effective website optimisation increases company exposure on the major search engines. Enhancing the level of exposure on the major search engines is identified as a critical factor in helping any company accomplish marketing goals for their web site. The company's Internet marketing goals included: High ranking for targeted & related keyword searches, increase goal conversion and brand building. There are thousands of websites offering same kind of services locally and on individual conditions, so it becomes challenging for SEO Experts to rank a particular website for selected keywords. SEO professionals begin with a comprehensive search engine competitive analysis of our campaign's online competition. Keyword research to identify all relevant keywords, related keyphrases searches and in market searches for website's core areas are completed. Every page (url) of the company's website cover to cover are optimized. The content team develops content for home page, rewrites content for few pages and begin content relevant site optimization that includes meta tags, alt tags, page content delivery and also implements an exclusive link popularity system. When the new search engine optimization (seo) elements are uploaded, the link building team begins to perform to take the site at a much higher level.

To gain better understanding of Search Engine Marketing field first we need to discuss what are search engines (SE).

SE's are basically huge online tools which are designed to search for the huge information present on the World Wide Web. Whenever you want to find any useful info about any thing, you type a query, a phrase related to it in the search bar of search engine and the SE displays the results which are most relevant to your query. The results shown by search engines are the most relevant as these are displayed after taking many factors into account. The factors are included in the SE's Algos. Every search engine has its unique algorithm which takes into consideration numerous factors for finding the relevancy of a site. These algos are constantly updated and are kept very confidential to prevent misuse.

The results are displayed in the form of list and are in descending order in terms of relevancy. The results shown can be further categorized into Organic results & Sponsored results.

The results shown in the center are known as Organic Results. These are the results which are evaluated by SE algos. The results shown on the right hand side are know as Sponsored results. These as the name suggest are paid results shown by SE. If you want to rank your website for a particular keyword, then bidding is done for that particular keyword. Highest bidder with good quality score wins for that keyword and tops among the list of list of other bidders. This field of keyword bidding comes under PPC ( Pay Per Click ).

A recent marketing study shows top organic positions are clicked 20 percent of the time and top paid-advertising positions are clicked 10 percent of the time. However, if a site has a top organic position and a top paid-advertising position, the links to the site are clicked 60 percent of the time. It's an unusual situation: 10 + 20 = 60.

Internet has become an effective new media for consumers and businesses alike. It is playing a major role in all walks of life like online shopping, paying bills, internet
banking and more. People are making their on-line presence through their website's. With the growth in Internet users, Search Engines have evolved as the major information providers. They have huge databases where they keep a snapshot information of the websites and bifurcate them under relevant category. When a search is made by a user for a particular phrase, SE use their algo to search their huge database and come up with relevant results. The bidders for that keyword are ranked under the sponsored listings.

To begin with optimising your website, an expert in the field is to be chosen. If given the work in wrong hands, many inexperienced webmasters or fraudulent SEO’s will do and try to get ‘quick’ rankings. All of these are short term options and it’s only a short matter of time before Google catches the site and bans it from the search engine.
