If you are trying to do a little SEO by thinking of ways people search for your company, here is a great post I wrote on my other site BWI: 200 Different Ways to Say Your Name. I was doing a little research on one of my clients site, and found that his visitors had searched for his company using over 274 keywords. This happened all in one month, and with less than 2,000 searches from Google.
It’s a post I put a little more time into so I hope you check it out. I believe this will be the trend for Web 3.0 or schematic websites. The trend is, it’s time to start lining your ducks in a row, and stop leaving Google or other search engines to do all the work. You could ignore the subtle clues Google is suggesting, but if you do, you will simply lose out to those that have a well organized site. You know heading tags work, you know sitemaps are important, meta tags have been doing it forever, but microforats or rich snippets as Google calls them, will soon be playing a larger roll. Check out the post, and see what I mean, and please make a comment on it if you have in insight to this.
I’m sure many of you know by now using videos is a great way to market your site. Their fun, their viral, and can often make a deal. Simply putting your video on YouTube is not enough though. You have to optimize it. You have to make it visible to the major search engines besides just Google. You have to at least give it a fighting chance.
Tons of Others Competing Against You
So you got your video, and you’re ready to upload. Are you ready for the traffic? You probably don’t have to be. A common occurrence is that you will hardly get anything out of it. To make a video viral you have to do it right, you have to be competitive, and you have to remember there are others competing for that traffic as well. Have you done anything to optimize it for search engines? Most likely you are just hoping others will like your video.
