An Ideally Optimized Web Page
An ideal web page should do all of the following:
- Be hyper-relevant to a specific topic (usually a product or single object)
- Include subject in title tag
- Include subject in URL
- Include subject in image alt text
- Specify subject several times throughout text content
- Provide unique content about a given subject
- Link back to its category page

Off-site optimisation is the process of promoting your website across the web. The purpose is to build brand awareness, visibility and authority, and to improve rankings in search engines to attract visitors.
It’s an on-going process – not a once-off application. The best approach to off-site SEO depends on the industry you operate in and your budget, but your overall strategy should consist of several of the following methods:
Link building, Social Audience Creation, Social Media Engagement, Search Engine Submission, Content Marketing, CSS, W3C & RSS Validation & Directory Submission,
Why is Off-Page SEO important?
Search engines have been trying for decades to find a way to return the best results to the searcher. To do that, they take into account the on-site SEO factors, some other quality factors (linking structures) and off-page SEO.
Off page SEO gives a very good indication on how the World (other websites and users) perceive the particular website. A web site that is useful is more likely to have references (links) from other websites; it is more likely to have mentions on social media (Facebook likes, tweets, Pins, +1’s etc.) and it is more likely to be bookmarked and shared among communities of like-minded users.
To understand what marketers mean by SEO content, it’s helpful to break down the phrase into its component parts: “SEO” refers to search engine optimization, or the process of optimizing a websites image titles & Alt text, Linkbacks, Article, Post SERPS, Duplicate Content, Title tags, and Page content people can easily find it via search engines like Google.
So, putting these two concepts together: SEO content is any content created with the goal of attracting search engine traffic.
Types of SEO content are : Product Pages, Blog Posts, Articles, Lists, Guides, Videos, Infographics, Slideshows, Glossaries, Directories

Social Media Optimisation (SMO)
Social media optimization (SMO) refers to the creation of online content that is likely to be shared through social networks. Social media optimization is more art than science, as it can be difficult to come up with a consistent formula for creating shareable content. That said, social media optimization is gaining importance as social sharing is increasingly being integrated into search results
SMO – Social Media Optimisation
Obviously, SMO has to do with social networks and their growing importance to business. This aspect of optimization deals with enhancing your company’s presence and online reputation through interactive communities—not just Facebook and Twitter, but also blogs, forums, and anywhere your business is mentioned or linked to socially.
Working with SMO can help you strengthen your brand and boost visibility, as well as generate leads and increase sales. Optimizing your social media builds both familiarity with and trust for your business, because consumers will see you not only mentioned, but recommended by others.
it is the next wave of online marketing, the perfect marriage between search engine optimization (SEO) and social media. As a business in the Internet Age, you can’t exist without addressing the critical issues of online visibility and customer interaction. That’s exactly what SMO is designed to do.
When used effectively social media can be one of your greatest assets for improving your site’s organic search results. By connecting with people in various online venues, you extend the reach of your business and increase opportunities for people to link to your main business page. Social media optimization helps connect all of your social media accounts in a cohesive, consistently branded network that points your potential customers where you want them to go.

One of the reasons some companies have hesitated to allocate resources to content marketing is that it can be difficult to really understand the benefits of content marketing. In my personal experience, ROI can be anywhere from 1000% to 4500%, if done correctly.
As award winning content marketing experts, we provide a full consulting service for content marketing, content marketing strategy development, content marketing advertising campaigns, the marketing content and the longevity insurance of that content.
Getting people to think more highly of your business certainly sounds great, but the results are truly quite remarkable. BUT, the respect and admiration of your audience will take time to build, as they require you to earn their trust. Sites that don’t care about quality are bound to give bad or misleading advice, making readers scratch their heads and wonder who they can trust. The objective for you is to be the authority, by proving you have content worth reading, that you have no dark motive for their data, and most of all that you would rather provide value and invest in your audience.
Content strategy is the backbone of the operation, without which you wouldn’t be able to sustain an online presence.
With our content strategy,its the planning of content to be created and delivered to your users at the right place, and at the right time. In this digital world, getting your content out there isn’t just about marketing and promotion, it’s about looking at why your business is performing the way it is.
Businesses often allocate this task to a junior staff member, which isnt recommended, as it’s a bigger task than most assume. Digital content strategy involves building a scaffold of your digital content. You need to determine the structure of your content flow so you can get it out to readers, users and potential clients.
Content strategy isn’t just about the words on the page, it’s also about what comes with it. This includes embedding videos, infographics, animation, illustrations, podcasts, images and links to your content, to make it more engaging for the audience.
