Your SEO goals are the same short term vs long term, but your tactics must change.

Local SEO Marketing | Site Optimization | Short term, long term

It is not the case that your short term goals for your local SEO marketing efforts are at odds with your long term goals.

Your goals are the same.

It is true that at some point your strategy has to change.

Why?

  • There is a chicken and egg dynamic with web site visibility.
    • To initially be seen, it helps to generate what I’ll call “tightly focused” content:
      • based around specific keyword phrases that are:
        • relevant to your business
        • in the sweet spot of traffic levels, commerciality, and competition
    • However, at some point being too tightly focused will lower your ranking
      • Google is promoting “natural” or “organic” content
        • a website that is optimized too well looks as if it was done on purpose (which it was)

So, what to you do about this?

  • For the first several months, used tightly focused keyword phrase analysis to determine the keywords you optimize your website for.
  • After you’ve achieved a decent traffic level (let us say 25,000 unique visitors per month), stop the keyword research and start writing about what you want to write about

By doing this:

  • You give your website a bit of a head start with the search engine spiders
  • But as it grows in popularity you “mix” the tightly focused content with unfocused content so your website appears more organic and natural.
