Step 1

On-Site SEO

The first step of Search Engine Optimization is to fix the SEO of your site. This has mostly to do with the coding of the HTML, the web server configurations and technical stuff combined with smart terminology of the text and content of the site based on keyword research.

Onpage Optimization ($200+$20/page)

1. Head Section Order
BCI’s best practices is to ensure your web pages’ Meta tags are in the right order: Title > Description > Keywords.

2. Title Tag
BCI methodology states Title tags should be approx. nine words, plus or minus three. You want to make sure the most important information, including top keywords, show up before the cutoff in the SERP in Google at 512 pixels.

3. Description Tag

The description tag should also be well crafted and include the most important info and have focus keywords before the SERP cutoff at approximately 920 pixels wide.

4. Keywords Tag
Even though Google has stated the keywords tag is not a consideration in ranking, we always include it as a best practice. .

5. Heading Tags

h1,h2,h3,h4,etc., are very important, in order. H1, and H2 and H3 must be present. 1 & 2 should only be used once. Others must be repeated. Rules as such known by SEO specialist need to be implemented.

6. Overall Word Count
The amount of words you have on a web page will vary by topic, keyword and intent. Quality content is key. Since the Google Panda Update penalizing low-quality content, avoid duplicate content and thin content and focus on robust coverage of your website topics that prove your subject matter expertise.

7. Alt Attributes with Keywords
The American with Disabilities Act says you should always describe the image on the page for the vision impaired. Alt attributes are also required to validate your HTML code.

8. Pretty URLs/Dashes vs. Underscores in URLs
For more on this topic, check out this post by Google’s Matt Cutts.

9. Fully Qualified Links + Canonical URLs
If you make your links fully qualified, there’s no question by search engine spiders, browsers, etc. as to where the file is located and what it’s about.

10. JavaScript/CSS External + Correct Position
You want to be sure the most important code is the first thing the search engine bots crawl. You can externalize the code that gets in the way of this.

Sitewide Optimization ($100)

11. Site Map
Your site should have an HTML sitemap, and every page should link to that sitemap, probably in the footer. You should also have an XML Sitemap you submit to search engines.

12. Text Navigation
Verify there is text navigation, not JavaScript or Flash navigation that spiders can’t see. Make sure you at least have text navigation on the bottom of the page if there aren’t any spiderable navigation links in the top nav.

13. Make Robots.txt File
It’s important this file exists. The Robots.txt file tells the search engine spiders what they have permission to read and what not.

14. Keyword Strategy
The keyword strategy is an ongoing process that essentially never ends. It starts with extensive research and iterates with extensive research. One could write novels about this topic; just know it’s part of any solid SEO checklist.

15. Web Analytics
Ensure your analytics are properly set up and monitored regularly to find out keyword information necessary in other parts of SEO, and that your site is optimized for them.

16. Linking Strategy
Your internal linking structure typically stems from your siloing strategy. Your inbound/outbound links should be part of an organic, natural strategy in compliance with search engine guidelines, and be monitored regularly.

17. Server Configuration
Proprietary techniques to set HTTP Headers good for SEO, DEFLATE compression and many other things , also checking log files for 404 errors, and such.

 

19. Canonical URLS

Complex, dynamic URLs could be a problem. If your URLs have more than two query string parameters and/or dynamic pages aren’t getting indexed and/or you have a lot of duplicate content. We fix all this by using the canonical URL approach.

20. Static Index Pages
If you have a home page with content that constantly changes, it can result in diluting the theme of your site and cause poor rankings for key terms. We solve this.

21. Text/Code Ratio

22. Ensure No SPAM Tactics
Make sure your SEO strategy is following Google Webmaster Guidelines. If ever in doubt about any of your tactics, refer to what Google accepts for SEO.

23. Check for Duplicate Content
