We'll evaluate your historical web analytics data and use market research tools to determine the best targets.

Assignment of keyword phrases to pages is equally important as the effort made to discover them. Collectively, how you group keywords will impact your ability to score rankings. Depending upon the size of your website, Dutchess Marketing recommends the assignment of similar keyword phrases to one page because consolidations allows you to maintain keyword density.

Search Engine Index and Sitemaps

In order to rank for keyword phrases, your web pages must appear within the search engine index. Sitemaps are an excellent way initiate placement in the index, however, they do not guarantee positioning. Search engines primarily perform hierarchical-crawls to find new content and expand their index starting from the homepage descending down to the Nth level product pages. Search engine spiders are limited to using your homepage as an entry point. In many cases spiders will reach your internal pages via inbound links from other websites, however, your website must have a sitemap to ensure the search engines are aware of all content.

  • Create Webmaster Accounts on Major Search Engines
  • Establish a search engine friendly sitemap containing links to categorical pages and routinely convert the latest version of your HTML sitemap into XML for submittal to Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  • Configure robots.txt file to directly link search engines to the XML version of the sitemap.

Robots.txt Configuration

Robots.txt is a file that needs to reside in the root directory of your website. It essentially "welcomes" in search engine spiders. Search engine spiders and other robots refer to this file in order to report accurate data related to the various spiders that visit the website. So, for obvious reasons, we will configure the robots.txt file to restrict the search engines from password protected content.

Duplicate Content Prevention, Canonical URLS, 404 Response Checks, and 301 Redirects

We will evaluate your website with attention drawn to potential causes of duplicate content, which is discredited by the search engines. We will check for canonical URL errors [http://www.domain.com vs http://domain.com] and recommend steps for eliminating multiple instances of cross domain duplicate content. We will study the behavior of your webpage(s) header response codes and determine if 301 redirect implementation can benefit you.

SEO Client Testimonials

During the first month of working with Dan and the Dutchess Marketing team my keywords went from page 5 to page 1.

My site receives thousands of hits from these keywords, and best of all, I don't have to pay Google for this traffic.

I completely trust Dutchess Marketing to manage my search marketing program. If I could do it all over again, I would have started earlier.
