Internet marketing for any business owner involves two major facets- website designing and search engine optimization, or SEO. While the website is the first line of contact between the business and its online audience, SEO is the gateway that directs these users to the website. This explains the interrelation between website design and SEO, and the need to structure both these strategies around each other.
A website that’s designed without taking into account SEO could adopt the most attractive layout, yet still fail to be successful due to the lack of visitors. Similarly, the best SEO strategies are of no use if they are being used for a website with an unappealing design. It thus becomes imperative to build any business website around SEO principles and strategies, taking into account aspects like the use of relevant keywords in the website’s structure. The first step to this is clearly laying out the purpose that the business wishes to achieve through its websites, which is important in order to identify the ideal keywords for your business.
Before you can adopt an SEO strategy, you must also make some critical decisions regarding your website design, such as the platform you wish to build it on, the desired programming language, its scalability, the mode of audience interaction, etc. In most cases, this groundwork takes a longer time than the actual implementation of these decisions. By building your website on a strong base with well-defined goals, you shall be putting in place a strong foundation that will serve your purpose for years to come, and make SEO for your website a lot easier and more effective.
Key focus must be laid on the homepage of your website, since this page has the greatest impact on determining whether or not visitors decide to stay on your website. It is important to keep your SEO strategies in sync with your website design and the content on it, so that visitors get what they expect when they land on your website. This can be done by choosing relevant keywords based on what you offer, instead of focusing on highly competitive keywords just to draw people to your website.
While a robust SEO strategy might succeed in leading people to your website, the baton from that point on is handed over to the website design, and that is what actually determines whether the race is won or lost!
