hidden, is it easy for the spiders to reach to all the pages, location of the pages, URLs, files, folders and giving a theme and having a hierarchy within the website. Step 4: URL Structure Not giving search engines easy access to the page's content. Navigation schemes and URL structures often act as a stop sign to search engine indexing Example, a website with characters (e.g., "?," "=," "&"), as in URL is difficult for search engines to understand and rank "http://www.site.com/travel.asp? product_no=25 ," whereas a URL Structure like this http://www.site.com/travel is much likely easier for search engines to index and rank. During this process, we look at the URL structure and recommend changes to make the URL search and user friendly. Bad URL structure: http://www.xyz.com/daily/packages/default.asp?rfrr=-360 Good URL structure: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-Canada-Vacations.html Step 5: Identifying Competition Looking how the competitors have positioned themselves online. Competition analysis includes report on their current organic search result listing, online reputation, their strengths Step 6: Identifying Keywords The objective of this stage is to identify as many keywords as possible that are relevant to the website. To find out how many searches are performed on each keyword, using the search engines, over a given period of time. To identify the most important keywords those are relevant. To identify and categorizing long tail Keywords to be used in the website. Where can the keywords be appropriate, how to add keywords, including social media sites, blogs, external links and anchor links Tools used to identify keywords: Google Keyword Research Tool, Word Tracker, Wordze Step 7: Page Index Analysis Search engine indexing collects, parses, and stores web pages to facilitate fast and accurate information retrieval. In this analysis process, we research on the pages that search engines indexed and non-indexed. All the main pages should be indexed to gain rankings. In this process, we find out the pages that are not indexed and tweak the pages so that the pages are easily indexed by search engines.

Step 8: Benchmarking The purpose of this benchmark is to measure and analyze where the existing site ranking is and use that benchmark to see progress in the SEO process. Example: www.xyz.com current search engine ranking for keyword is in position 20 page 2 before implementing the SEO best Practice Step 9: On Page optimization On-page optimization involves modifying keyword frequency in the URL, Title, Headings, Hypertext Links and Body text. It may also involve reducing redundant HTML codes and restructuring the site to produce better linked and focused page content.

Step 10: Off-page optimization Strategies for search engine optimization that is done off the pages of a website to maximize its performance in searches for target keywords related to the page content. Examples of off-page optimization include linking and placing keywords within link anchor text. Methods of obtaining links can also be considered off-page optimization. Step 11: Universal Search Optimization Google Universal blends images, maps, blogs, video, and news into the standard search results page. If we use the Shrek 3 query again as an example, youll see listings from You Tube mixed in with the web pages including a preview image and the option to watch the movie trailer right within the search results. Normally, youd have to click and visit another web page to do that. In this process, we suggest and recommend tweaking to optimize all of the content including images, maps, blogs, video, and news

Step 12: Content creation and optimization Content optimization is the creation, modification and reorganization of site content in a way that makes it more accessible and better represented to the World Wide Web, search engines and users. Going through the existing content, links and linking the existing pages with the landing pages and vice versa, tweaking the content by adding links, keywords. Optimizing anchor links, external and internal links using keywords in the website, social media sites and links from network sites Step 13: Landing page creation and optimization The goal of developing landing pages is to improve organic search engine rankings for combination of critical keywords. Ultimately, increasing the number of relevant pages and content on the site (with the researched key words as the focal point) will improve the rankings and, as a result, drive more traffic. The content served on these pages must be relevant and promote user actions that drive registration, search, and lead conversion. To create scalable landing page templates that can be developed for multiple key word combinations.

Step 15: XML Site Map creation The Sitemap Protocol allows you to inform search engines about URLs on your websites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap that uses the Sitemap Protocol is an XML file that lists URLs for a site. Creating and submitting an XML sitemap will allow search engines to crawl and index all the pages in your website. Step 16: Directory Submission Research for industry related directories and submit the site to these directories. Search engines weigh a site when is listed in major trusted directories. Example: Listing the site with Title, description, location in Yellow pages.com and other directories. Step 17: Press release optimization Today, popular news search engines are playing a powerful role in cost-effective online marketing, because that is where people and reporters go to find information. Press Release optimization is incorporating basic search engine marketing practices such as keyword research and page optimization with the latest online press release distribution methods.

Step 18: Link-building Six main strategies for external link-building from third party sites: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Natural link-building through quality content Requesting inbound-only links Reciprocal linking Buying links Creating your own external links

Step 19: Analytics and Reporting Search engine ranking results can change from week-to-week due to competition and modifications to search engine algorithms. Maintaining a top ranking requires

constant monitoring and rework.

5. Pay Per Click Advertisement (PPC) Pay per click (PPC) is an Internet advertising model used on search engines, advertising networks, and

12 | P a g e

content websites, such as blogs, where advertisers only pay when a user actually clicks on an advertisement to visit the advertisers' website. With search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market 5.1. Goal: To reach the target audience who are looking for targeted keywords through Ad words, Pay per Click, text link ads in major search engines and relevant content network across the sites that are relevant to the search by identifying keywords, create text ads and target the right audience at the right time. PPC can be delivered by the following: Text Ads in Content Network sites targeting the right audience Google search engine page results Yahoo/ MSN search page results Links from Travel related directories Ads in corporate blogs, forums 5.2. How PPC works: When a user types a keyword query matching an advertiser's keyword list, or views a webpage with relevant content, the advertisements may be displayed. Such advertisements are called sponsored links or sponsored ads, and appear adjacent to or above the "natural" or organic results on search engine results pages, or anywhere a webmaster or blogger chooses on a content page 5.3. Step by Step PPC Process: STEP 1: Identifying Keywords First, a review of the site content is done to make a note of which keywords word combinations and phrases describe the main categories of the business and compile a list of keywords under each category and expand the list by including plurals and synonyms for each word or phrase on the initial list Step 2: Target Keywords To target these keywords using Googles keyword matching options. These enable us to pinpoint ad delivery so your ads reach people precisely when they are searching for what you have to offer. This is done by: Broad Match, Phrase Match, Exact Match, Negative Match Step 3: Refine Keywords After creating, expanding and targeting your list of keywords refine it. To do this, include all the relevant synonyms and variations on your core themes, and then eliminate whats irrelevant. Step 4: Grouping After creating different buckets for the key words based on the major product lines, refine and group them into thematic categories, which are called Ad Groups. Step 5: Developing Ads With the right keywords in hand, we can develop ad copy, or creative. Google Ad Words enables advertisers to examine click through data for each creative. So we constantly test new variations and see which ones really work. Step 6: Creating Destinations A useful destination page is one thats the most direct single click from the ad itself, so customers arrive ready to take action. Some of key points in this phase will be A. What precise action we would want people to take after they click on the ad?

13 | P a g e

B. What information do people need before they can complete this call to action? C. What is the best way to get people to do what you want? Step 7: Organizing the landing page A. What are people looking for when they click on the ad? B. How we provide a solution, product, or service that answers their need? C. How quickly can we deliver the information searchers need while getting what we need from them? Can they get what they came for in three or fewer clicks? Step 8: Ad placement With hundreds of thousands of high-quality websites, news pages, and blogs that partner with Google to display Ad Words ads, the Google content network can reach users all over the web to drive conversions from text, image, and video formats to communicate the message.

Content network Ads

Step 9: Target the right user in the right context Using the keywords, Google's contextual targeting technology can automatically match our ads to web pages in our content network that are most relevant to the business Step 10: Location targeting We select combination of locations to target with the campaign, including countries, territories, regions, cities and custom areas. For example, we could target specific regions within the United States and a few large English-speaking cities in Europe. With the interactive map targeting tool, there are several ways to specify our location targeting: Step 11: Local business ads Local business ads help users by showing them products and services that are physically nearby. On the advertising side, local business ads provide a way to reach more local customers. Local business ads are different from regional and customized campaign targeting, another way to reach users in a specific geographic area. Step 12: Tracking Results Once we have all your objectives, keywords, and ads, even multiple creative running on Ad Groups on several campaigns, the best way is to monitor before-and-after metrics. Step 13: Measure and optimize the results With the Placement Performance Report, we have visibility into where all the ads appear. We can review our ad's performance on a site-by-site basis to see impression, click, cost, and conversion data, and use this data to identify well-performing sites to target more aggressively and identify low-value placements that require content optimization or exclusion. Step 14: Reports Google Analytics tells us how visitors found the site and how they interact with it. We will be able to compare the behavior and profitability of visitors who were referred from each of the ads, keywords, search engines, and emails, and gain valuable insight into how to improve your site's content and design. For Ad Words users in particular, Google Analytics will provide us with actionable information that we can use to increase your ROI by tracking cost data for all of your campaigns and combining that data with conversion information on a page-by-page basis. Google Analytics automatically imports Ad Words cost data so that we can track the effectiveness of your Ad Words campaigns, and automatically tags the Ad Words destination URLs to track keyword and campaign conversion rates
