7 Clear-Cut Reasons Why You Cannot Ignore Deep Links Anymore!

1 Comment  

Why are deep links important, you ask? Before I can begin to answer that question, I need to define what a deep link is. Any inbound link that points to an inner page of a site is a deep link; it can be either internal or external. For a better part of the SEO history, deep links were overlooked in favor of the more prominent, and heretofore more “popular”, homepage links. But now that the entire SEO-realm is awake to the considerable clout they have on the SERPs, deep links are being hailed as the best SEO method to ever be.

linkThe advantages of deep linking are so patently obvious, I am surprised that it took us this long to be hip to them. By now enough SEO types have written about the mistake we make of overlooking deep links (while cooking up our SEO strategies) that what I am about to say may seem a bit redundant. However, this is my stance on this matter, when it comes to writing about the importance of deep links, redundancy is an invalid concept.

So, why are deep links important, you ask again? Let me count the ways:

1. Traffic, More Traffic!

traffic

Deep linking is your key to generating sustainable search traffic. Studies have shown that less than 20% of the search visits land on the home page, the rest land on individual pages. So engaging in deep linking can help you generate 80% more traffic than you already are.

2. Deep Links Can Build Relevance For Your Site

No matter how great the content on your site is, an ill-optimized internal linking structure and a poorly realized linking strategy will negate all the SEO-goodness your site can draw from it. It all boils down to one question: once on your site, can the user easily find what he is looking for? Does your site provide a ready answer to his search query? If you answer is in the negative, then you’ve failed to establish relevance for your site, in spite of having highly relevant content available so freely on your site. Now, if you had engaged in a spot of deep linking, either internal or external, you’d have got full points for relevance. Calibrating your links with your content is of utmost importance in building relevance, and the thing to do is to optimize your inner pages links with the most relevant anchor text. If a search query for ‘Belgian Waffles’ throws up your site in the results, then the link should be one that points to the page with information on ‘Belgian Waffles’, and not a generic link that points to the home page that contains information about, say, ‘Bed and Breakfasts’.

Beginner’s Guide to Directory Submission: 14 Tips You Can’t Afford to Ignore

1 Comment  

Directory Submission is probably the oldest trick in the SEO book. It is a practice that dates back to a time before even the search engines (I call it the BSE era; I know, hard to imagine, but such a period did exist in the Internet past).  Its real potential was understood and utilized only after the advent of search engines and there was even a period in its long and eventful history when Directory Submission was considered an almost mandatory SEO practice by experts everywhere, a period when directory submissions alone could go a long way in getting a site to the top of the SERPs.
Successful Directory Submissions

Of course, when big players like Google began to get smarter and (even) bigger, the focus shifted a little to other methods and tactics. Regardless of that, Directory Submissions remains very prominently in the SEO picture, continuing to be the SEO method of choice for millions of website owners.

From SEO veterans with years of experience to new-to-SEO website owners, a host of people with varying levels of expertise turn to Directory Submission everyday, because they all realize that they have to first take the baby steps and be steady on their feet before they can make the giant leaps. Directory submissions are those baby steps, the ones that will place them firmly on the path to SEO nirvana.

Over the years, as is the case with anything enduring, it has come under fire for its effectiveness, or lack thereof (according to some), but my money’s worth is the fact that Directory Submission has continued to hold its own and is relevant even today, in what I call the Twitter Age, alone is a testimony to its effectiveness.
Directory Submission Service
Many of us forget or fail to consider just what Directory Submission involves and how it can best aid our SEO efforts – indiscriminately submitting a site to a bunch of directories will hardly prove to be effective or helpful. There are numerous factors to consider before you submit to a directory – questioning the efficacy of the method if you can’t bother to follow procedure is unfair; and follow procedure you must. Smarter search engines, tougher-than-ever competition, innumerable new directories and ever-changing SEO trends have made it crucial that directory submissions are done with utmost care and any possible help from experts.

I’ll stay true to my role and do my bit to help you with your directory submission efforts. Listed below are the basic dos and don’ts to consider while submitting to a directory, follow them to make your directory submissions more effective.
Directory Submissions Tactics
Do’s

1.    Submit only to directories that are recognized/indexed by search engines.  Don’t submit to a directory that uses the ‘rel=no follow’ attribute for a link, this will prevent search engines from accessing your site from that link.

2.    Ensure that the directory has a well-organized category structure. Submit your site to the most relevant category. Sites submitted to inappropriate or unrelated categories may be rejected or removed.  Category in Directory

3.    Read and follow the directory guidelines before you begin the submission process.

4.    Include your target keywords in your anchor text, but don’t resort to ‘keyword stuffing’.

5.    Keep track of your submissions. Document your work for future reference, as directories don’t accept duplicate submissions.

6.    Try to use the domain email while submitting your site. This increases the chances of approval.

7.    Use relevant long-tail keywords instead of popular, head keywords as your anchor text/title. The competition for head keywords is very high; it is nearly impossible for a new site to rank high for such keywords. Instead use niche or specific long-tail keywords and key phrases.

keywordsE.g. “handcrafted lace dresses in Georgia” instead of “dresses”, if you have a site promoting a store in Georgia that sells hand-crafted lace dress.

8.    Have as many titles and descriptions as possible. This will allow you to target multiple keywords in your anchor test and also eliminates the possibility of search engines disregarding duplicate titles and descriptions.
E.g. “Hand-Crafted Lace Dresses In Georgia”, “Lace Dresses In Georgia”, “Hand-Crafted Lace Dress” and “Dresses In Georgia” are some of the titles you can use, for the same site promoting a store in Georgia that sells handcrafted lace dress.

9.    Keep submitting to directories from time to time – do not stop. You need to show Google and other search engines that you are serious about your site and its rankings.
