Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has become a very important marketing tool. If you have a web site and don’t have it optimized for search engines, you could be missing out on a large volume of web site traffic. At Selle Design Group, we consider SEO a key component of the overall development and design of a web site and make it our business to stay current on the information in this fast-moving, technological field.
There are many elements that are considered when employing effective on-site SEO practices. The first is creating good copy. Copywriting can make or break a web site in terms of SEO. Poorly written copy not only can have a negative effect on the viewer but can be a detriment to your site in the eyes of search engines. The primary goal of your web site is to relate to the user of your site. If they can't understand what your site is about or have trouble understanding what you need them to about your product or service then your web site is failing.
This same thing is true with search engines. They read copy a little differently than humans but the goal is the same. They try to understand what your site is about so they can index your web pages into their database then display YOUR information when someone types in a related search into their search engine.
It is very important to develop copy that is equally aimed at both the human and web bot visitors to your site. Selle Design Group's copywriting team employs techniques that can help your site achieve an optimized status and relate to both the human and web bot elements.
Programming for SEO
Developing effective copy is the first step but programming is equally important. Web bots read text in a hierarchy similar to an outline so the copy that is developed for the web site must also be used in key elements of programming. There are also other programming steps that must be take such as developing a site map for your web site. Selle Design Group's web development team knows how to employ effective SEO programming techniques that will optimize your site and get your web pages indexed in search engines.

On-Site SEO is the practice of controlling the physical content of your web site. This means generating a list of keywords that are appropriate for your business, developing effective copy that uses these keywords throughout the web site and developing strategic programming that also uses these keywords in important meta-tags.
The idea of on-site SEO is to optimize your site so that search engines can easily navigate through your web site and determine what your site is about. The search engine will then index your site into its database and you will appear in search results that match what your web site emphasizes. The ultimate goal is to appear at the top of the list in the number one or two position.
