Pay Per Click (PPC)

Pay Per Click (PPC)

Whereas Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is focused on the improvement of website ranking for targeted keywords in organic search results, Google Pay Per Click allows for sponsored results placement.

It simply means that advertisements based on selected keywords are displayed alongside the search results when users type in specific keywords in the search box. In addition, Google Pay Per Click (PPC) or AdWords adverts are also displayed at participating publisher sites relevant to the keywords selected.

Why Make Use of Google Pay Per Click?
SEO is a long term solution and targets searches by users. AdWords offers almost immediate return and the option is well-suited for companies only starting out on the Internet and hoping to gain immediate visits to their sites. The option is also perfect as an additional means to attract visitors and gain more sales. Whereas the user often utilises normal searches to find more information, the advertisements are aimed at the buyer or person ready to make use of a service or product.

Organic SEO and Google PPC thus work well together to reach more users and to gain more sales. With the AdWords we set-up the ads, select the keywords and manage the bids where relevant. With Google PPC you will have control over where the ads should be displayed and can target specific user groups, also within geographic boundaries.

The Google network is extensive and includes various search partners and content publishers. In addition, you will have the ability to reach users whether they search for videos, articles or specific products.

Identify, analyse, and beat your biggest SEO competition
At the start of an SEO campaign, thorough competitor analysis it is critical to give you an understanding which keywords you can realistically target; and if your wewbsite is ranking pretty well already, it’s important that you inspect your top competitors’ SEO strategy to find their weak and strong points — and use both to your advantage.

We will help you:

  • Discover your strongest competitors
  • Measure each competitor’s SEO strength
  • Compare your link profile to competitors
  • Uncover competitors’ on-page strategy

Identify your top SEO competitors

Most probably, you already have an idea of who the big players in your niche are. But your main business rivals are not necessarily your SEO competitors (they could be targeting other channels than organic search). When it comes to SEO, your only competitors are the ones who rank in the first search result pages for your top keywords.

Checking Google and all other top search engines like Bing and Yahoo results for all your keywords and compiling a list of sites that come up a lot is incredibly time-consuming. This is where competitive intelligence tools come in.

SEO Technocracy’s rank tools are able to do tedious work for you. All you need to do is enter your keywords, and our tools will quickly look through the results in your target search engine and identify your biggest SEO competitors — domains that show up most frequently in top 50.

Assess competitors' SEO strength

Before you get down to analysing competitors’ SEO specifics, like keyword use on a particular landing page, it’s a good idea to measure their overall SEO strength and estimate the work required to beat each of your competitors.

Analyse and compare competitors' link profiles

Backlinks are perhaps the strongest indicator of a site’s authority to search engines. Backlink research is a crucial step in competitive analysis — it will help you develop a link strategy, estimate the time required to build a comparably strong link profile, and spot valuable backlink opportunities within competitors’ profiles.

Uncover competitors' on-page tactics

Unlike backlinks, on-page SEO is quicker to implement. You could literally revamp your landing pages in a day using the insight you get from analysing competitors’ pages — and this quick change is likely to bring tangible results sooner than any other.

Our website auditor tool offers all the info you need to optimise any given page for your target keywords. Additionally, it offers a breakdown of the on-page strategy of your top SEO rivals, letting you see the contents of your competitors’ HTML tags and keyword use by page element — so that you can see what’s working for them and utilise those tactics on your own pages.

Why Would I Need an SEO Website Audit?

Our SEO Website Audits are designed for those who are having trouble ranking for their intended keywords, but really aren’t sure why.

SEO auditing can also be helpful for a business that recently started a website and wants to know where they can improve on their earliest webpages. Regardless of your need, SEO audits are the first steps to creating an online marketing strategy that works.

On-Page Factors Affecting SEO

What’s the point in having an attractive website if no one ever sees it? We’ve seen a lot of clients who have beautiful, engaging, and well-crafted websites that just can’t rank in search engines, and they don’t understand why. Why doesn’t a website rank well if it’s attractive and has a lot to offer?

Frequently, the issue in these situations is content in one form or another. This could mean not enough content on each page (“thin content”), similar or missing title tags and meta descriptions, or multiple URLs pointing to the same page (“duplicate content”). SEO Technocracy will identify these on-page ranking barriers and recommend the necessary changes all with an SEO website audit. Identifying and fixing these on-page factors can have a significant, immediate and positive impact on your rankings.

Identifying Off-Page Factors Affecting Search Positions

Other factors affecting your organic search positions are what are referred to as off-page factors. Off-page factors make up almost 80% of search engines’ ranking algorithms, making accurate off-page analysis absolutely critical. These factors are mostly focused on links — the number of links you have, the anchor text used, and where these links are placed.

The average web visitor can’t spot these off-page factors, and it’s difficult to identify them manually. Fortunately, at SEO Technocracy we have a suite of services enabling off-page analysis and comparison. SEO Technocracy will identify these hard-to-spot factors and recommend a strategy that helps you build your reputation and increase your presence online.

Server Configuration Search Engine Ranking Factors

There are a number of files on your server — like .htaccess, robots.txt and sitemap.xml to name a few — that actually dictate how search engines access and index your content. Optimising these files so they are configured appropriately can have a huge impact on your rankings.

.HTACCESS
The .htaccess file is a distributed configuration file. This file allows you to specify and apply configuration directives on your site. This file enables you to call the shots on how users and search engines are directed to specific pages on your site, facilitate custom error pages and apply 301 redirects.

ROBOTS.TXT
The robots.txt file placed in the root of a website prevents web spiders from accessing specific folders on your website. It is important to follow a specific format when optimizing this file. This file is typically used for folders that dilute the theme of your website or folders providing a dead end to robots, such as PDF files.

SITEMAP
The creation, optimisation, and submission of a sitemap.xml file enables search engine spiders to better crawl your site. It also helps visitors to quickly scan your whole site for relevant information. This file provides a link and a short description of that link for each page of your site, prioritising each page and providing a hierarchy of the most important pages on your site to the least important pages on your website.

ADDITIONAL SERVER CONFIGURATION FACTORS
Additional server configurations such as accurate HTTP headers, accurate 404 error pages and page load times affect your search engine traffic as well. SEO Technocracy will identify and determine the best way for you to optimise these files to ensure positive results.
