search engines phone home......
Over 283,000 search engine queries brought folks into the OnlineAgency hosted systems over the last 30 days. What percentage of the traffic came to your site? Are you pleased with what you got? If not ask your self what you have done to promote or maintain your website. What have you done to help it stand out. Are you updating your blog? Do you have The Levelfield Broadcast Option? The basic rule is that you have to do something but may be surprised that just a little work can bring a payoff. You'll also find that it's not hard once you get into the swing.
We still want you to blog! - Get BusyWe still want you to blog! If you are not you are missing out of one of the most cost effective marketing tools in the world and certainly on the Internet.
On July 7, 2006, I posted here to introduce "Clarity - Levelfield's Small Business Blog". Since that time I have tracked the progress of the new blog in terms of views and search engines using the reports that are built into every Levelfield (TM) / OnlineAgency (TM) account.
Here's a bit of what I am seeing.
In terms of page views the new blog has become this website's 2nd most popular page taking 19.5% of the page views. What page is number 1? The Levelfield Broadcast Blog, of course. During the same time period, the Levelfield Broadcast Blog got 22.9% of the page views. Based on the trend however, we expect our Clarity blog to move into first place soon. However there is nothing like a bit of healthy competition. Expecially if it results in increasing the overall number of pages views and attracts new visitors to the website.
So how has the new Clarity blog fared with the search engines? Well, on Google, it's visible on the 4th page of results when one searches for small business blog. Not the best position, but look at it this way. This blog is less than 2 months old and is showing up in the top 35 of 337 million results. check it out here
And I have found seven inbound links to the home page from external sites.
We saw another new website, www.jeanniesamson.com that launched this past month that has been indexed and is showing up in various searches on Google and MSN. The magic - two things with this site. This is a redesigned site but has been visibile in its old format for a few months and this site is making chock full of unique content. Note that the site doesn't have hundreds of pages but just a few. No work has been done to add unique keywords or other meta tags. We don't feel that these are viable any more. Instead the content that carries the site and attracts the search engines is the page level content.
Tip# 1: If you haven't added a blog to your account you need to get started. Blogs are free with your Levelfield (TM) / OnlineAgency (TM) accounts.
Tip# 2: If you have more than one person in your organization you might consider adding a new blog to your website to increase the amount of unique content that you get on your website. Your Levelfield (TM) / OnlineAgency (TM) accounts have built-in support for multiple blogs
Remember this formula:
Unique Content = Search Engine Magnet.
Blogs = Unique Content
Blogs = Search Engine Magnet
What if your customers could post their comments easily on your website

This new feature will be a part of our Levelfield content boxes and can also appear on a stand-alone page as well. You will have the flexibility to decide exactly where you want your comment box featured on the sit.

Search Engine Optimization or good luck!
This morning one of our customers reported to me that in MSN Search a link to her website for a well known cruise supplier is showing up first in the MSN search results and in another case on the first page.
How did she do this?
Well I'm guessing that luck is involved. Who knows exactly what and when the search engines are going to do something. However, I think there are several steps she took that certainly contributed to her good fortune.
1. She has added keyword rich unique text to her pages.
2. She has updated here website several times over the last 2-3 months.
3. She has added some meta keywords and a meta description. The search engine did not display the meta descripton. The keywords were not specific to the page. I don't think they help much.
4. She has the Levelfield Broadcast Option which includes Private Label Supreme. I don't think the Levelfield Broadcast Option made her number 1 or even got her on the first page but having this option certainly made it possible for Google, MSN, and Yahoo to index her website. Just 2 or 3 months ago she didn't have the Levelfield Broadcast Option. Now she has been indexed by the 3 primary search engines. She has not yet taken advantage of the of the Google Site Map feature.

One very important question:
Will she get search engine traffic as a result of this new positioning on the search results page?
After all it's possible to get top ranking for keywords that no one will ever use for a search. To demonstrate this I added the following phrase to one of our pages: Eightieth Waffle Mansion. If you search google and msn you'll see that phrase in the coveted number one position on the search results page. BUT who would ever search for that particular phrase.
click to see results on MSN
click to see results on Google
In a month or so I'll do a follow up report to see how our customer fared with her new positioning on the search results pages. What I can say for sure is that she gets traffic from Yahoo, Google, and MSN in that order on a daily basis. The question that I have will she benefit from this placement reported here.
New Package - Levelfield Broadcast Option regularly $169.00
This great new package combines several important features into one affordable bundle and it is yours for as long as you have an Online Agency account. Great news If you have Private Label Supreme you will get this package for free. Just check your dashboard to see if you have a link that reads: Generate Google sitemap. If you don't have Private Label Supreme find out how you can get it along with these exciting new options. The package is built around the Private Label Supreme option that removes your website from a frameset, brands each link in the site with your domain name, and makes your website very search engine friendly. Along with this we will include the Google Sitemap creator which allows you to create and submit a site map of your website to Google and then to easily update the sitemap as you change your pages. Plus we'll upgrade your newsletter so that you can create and save for reuse your newsletter campaigns. Broadcast Your Brand 1. Allows you to brand each link in your website with your domain name. Removes your domain from a frameset making it easier for Search engines to crawl your branded website. Broadcast your content 2. Make your site more search engine friendly. 3. Option to submit your site map to Google (requires a Google account). Indexes only the pages that you have created or versions that you have made. Doesn't index the Online Agency content. 4. Ability to create Really Simple Syndication feeds for submission of you blog to directories and to other websites. 5. Ability to create RSS feeds for your promotions. (Some say that RSS will eventually replace email marketing.) Broadcast your message 5. Email Newsletter enhancement that allows you to create and save your newsletter campaigns. Plus you'll be able to send more than one newsletter. Important Note: We can't and don't guarantee any search engine results after all the search engines themselves don't guarantee inclusion. Here's what google has to say on site submission: "We add and update new sites to our index each time we crawl the web, and we invite you to submit your URL here. We do not add all submitted URLs to our index, and we cannot make any predictions or guarantees about when or if they will appear." All major search engines say something similiar. For example, Yahoo charges a $300 fee for consideration of your website for inclusion into their directory with no guarantee of anything other than they will process your request. Given this caveat, the trend that we see is that sites with the Private Label Supreme option usually have better results with the search engines than those without. The private label suprememe option makes it easier for Google, Yahoo, and MSN to index the pages that you create. Recently, I've been working with one travel agency who didn't have the Private Label Supreme option. She added it to her account and now Google has indexed her 443 pages from here website. Remember you are the crucial element to your success. you can't buy success but you can build success. Create a plan and then work your plan. The Levelfield Broadcast Option will help but only if you work your plan. If you are interested in getting this add on option.
