Researches are also showing that about 80% of the people will click on one of the three first search results, and if you’re not on the first page, and of course, if you’re not on the first page, you already expect there is very less traffic will reach your website from search engines. Not only search engines are directing traffic to your website, you also have links from referring sites/blogs/forums etc, and people will also arrive at your site directly, by typing the URL in their browsers.

Keyword Tracking & Keyword Ranking

As you can gain a fairly extensive amount of traffic passively, just by having your site adapted to the search engines, and having your website appearing at the first search results. That’s the reason companies and businesses are doing “SEO” (Search Engine optimization), they understand the important and SEO and willing to invest into it.

Basically, what this means is that companies are improving the structure, content, and linkage of their websites, in order to have better adapt to the search engine ranking algorithms, and so to appear on a higher position on the search results.

The SEO process has the technical stage of technically adapting your website to search engines, simply put, making your web a Search Engine friendly site. This is achieved by using On-Page optimization, a few simple steps such as adding the correct HTML titles to web pages, adding matching META descriptions, creating a site map and etc. All these relatively simple steps will make your website more open to search engines recognition, more accessible, the content will be better categorized and described, and search engine will have better understanding on your website, the information you want to deliver for the visitor and rank you higher in the search result.

Seo Friendly Website

We usually optimizing a website starts by a research, usually a “Keyword Research”.

This means that you will identify the search terms people are using when searching and arriving at your website, and you will cross check these keywords with another important information such as how many pages per visit were viewed, how much time every visitor spent on your website, and what is the bounce rate (bounce is a term used for a situation when a visitor exits your website after viewing a single page only, presumably understanding your website is NOT what she/he were looking for).

We also cross checking your current traffic information with the initial keywords list you have will allow you to understand what people are searching for, and what content on your website they view. You can also learn about “wrong” keywords such as a word showing your website first with the search engine, but turns that it has a bounce rate of 99%, meaning only 1 out of 100 people actually viewed over 1 page on your website, when arriving to your website searching for this keyword.

Creating the optimal keyword list is a matter of research, experience, skills and knowledge. Once you have created such a list, start the process of tracking the positions of your website according to your keyword list, and in parallel starts the process of improving the positions and ranking of your site with the keyword list.

Promoting a keyword can be done in many ways, which are the skills of the SEO professionals, and the process constantly monitors the results of the SEO process both based on the analytic traffic information, and on the other hand based on the location of your keyword ranking positions. The Keyword tracking process monitors the location of your website in the search result according to your keyword list, and provides information about the rise or fall of your keywords, the history data of the position of your keywords etc. Tracking this information provides you a very easy, clear, and effective induction about how the SEO process is really working for you.

The Optimal Keyword tracking tool should be able to manage the keyword tracking process with ease, without consuming any maintenance time, without extra configuration required, and should also provide history data, clear reports and intuitive charts. Of course some high-end Keyword tracking tools are also providing additional features such as keyword research tools, keyword ranking tools ,indexed pages information, KEI data, and more, but at the end only the SEO professional are using these features, while most of the people will only require the most basic capability of key word tracking, with the lowest overhead required. A keyword tracker solution that runs automatically, creates the basic reports and alerts a user when a change occurs, is the optimal solution for Keyword Ranking.

Seo Report

Well, now you know the important of search engine optimization, which involves keyword tracking, keyword research and keyword ranking strategies, by leveraging different SEO tools, you can improve your website ranking. If you every wish to learn search engine optimization course, I would recommend you to join my Digital Marketing Course. Or if you don’t plan to learn, while looking for a SEO practitioner to improve your website ranking, feel free to reach me, I have several SEO tools able to help you improve your website ranking.

What to Expect from SEO Agencies https://www.calvyn.com/what-to-expect-from-seo-agencies/ Fri, 25 Sep 2020 14:23:23 +0000 https://www.calvyn.com/?p=27402 There is a growing awareness among businesses and companies regarding the importance of SEO and how it is one of the most efficient means of increasing visibility in terms of search engine results. Most of the industry experts are of the opinion that the best option is to seek the services of a good professional agency that excels in SEO services and has lots of experience in the field. We can certainly expect such companies to boost the position of the company website.

SEO Agency

Most of the SEO experts tend to work their magic and provide higher ranked search pages by incorporating the most suitable keywords in the website’s content. This is a lot tougher than it sounds and the process of adding suitable keywords to the mix for the search engine to recognize may differ. However, it would be wrong to expect results overnight. SEO works slowly but efficiently and if any SEO firm states the contrary, you can be rest assured that they cannot fulfil your requirements and are simply making hollow promises. This is owing to the fact that there are over three hundred individual factors that affect the website rankings in the search engines, and it is not possible to meet all the criteria.

Necessity of Thorough Research

The mark of a good SEO agency is research. Any professional and expert SEO firm will first examine your business, inspect the profiles of your competitors and then choose the keywords that would have the desired results. This sort of an agency would well know the tools necessary for performing extensive research of the keywords, and then use them effectively to arrive at the most suitable keywords that might improve the flow of traffic to the website, thereby increasing the rate of conversion. (example tools like Ahref, Moz, Semrush and Ubersuggest)

Optimization Services

SEO always involves the optimization of the site with the help of on page and off page optimization techniques that tend to differ. It is the job of SEO expert to ensure that the website contains every single shred of relevant data that the visitors to the site are going to find useful, engaging and informative. It is important for the SEO websites to be made user-friendly and the overall design of any website holds a lot of significance when it comes to making it user-friendly.

A website that does not boast of a good design and is very haphazard will serve to frustrate its visitors who will be unable to navigate it properly and find the content they need. In the end, they will have no other option but to move to one of the other websites, possibly one that belongs to their competitors. When you select an SEO agency for your company, they will probably be in a position to recommend the ideal design for your website.

Content Marketing Agency

Harnessing Social Media Power

You can promote your website using the power of social media. In the modern age, social media websites play a huge role in bolstering the popularity of a particular website and it has been realized that usually such traffic leads to superior rates of conversion. The digital marketing agency that provides SEO services must help the user in exploiting these sites to the best of their advantage. Moreover, the metrics of the site need to be monitored on a regular basis. It is up to the service provider of the site to show how the techniques that have been adopted and employed by them are capable of affecting the results. The two most important factors that require regular monitoring for the same purpose include subsequent conversions and click rates.

Portable Viewing Enabled

One of the aspects that SEO deals in is the viewing experience of the website and all the latest websites and blogs can get their size optimized for their portable devices (mobile friendly). It has been found that a large number of people nowadays are using mobiles devices to log onto the Internet and this is why it is important for you to seek out the help of SEO services that ensure the mobile-friendly and mobile responsive feature of the site.

Digital Marketing Agency

The company needs to always pick an SEO firm that is well acquainted with the right current techniques, and all the essential search engines continue to use search algorithms whose primary purpose is to improve user experience intending to eliminate any sites containing spam. Thus, it is essential to seek a digital marketing agency that remains aware of the present trends of the online search world and is in a position to change their techniques as per the needs of the client.

Additional tips from myself. When someone told you he is a SEO expert, first thing first is to ask for his website, or his company website. Ask a few questions such as what keyword they are ranking right now, and briefly use some back link checker to see how many back links they have. Result does not lie, a real SEO practitioner or someone who pro-claim them self as expert is very easy to identify. If you every look for SEO agencies in Penang or within Malaysia, I can recommend you a few real expert.

Bengkel Digital Marketing 2020 https://www.calvyn.com/bengkel-digital-marketing/ Sun, 13 Sep 2020 11:13:25 +0000 https://www.calvyn.com/?p=27199 Last month, I have been invited as “Penceramah” (Lecturer) to conduct a digital marketing course name “Bengkel Digital Marketing 2020” to a local college community – Kolej Komuniti Tasek Gelugor (KKTG) at mainland, Penang.

Bengkel Digital Marketing

KKTG is a college where they provide quality education and technical training to improve a student’s technical skill. For this digital marketing workshop, 15 students from pastry certification course as well as 5 students from Air-cond certification course.

Kolej Komuniti Tasek Gelugor

When I reach this college community, they are at Jalan Teluk Air Tawar, Taban Air Tawar Indah.

Calvyn at KKTG

Next to the entrance, there is a small cafe, consider the college’s cafeteria. According to the in-charge person, they used to bake the pasty and sell in this cafeteria, the college also encouraging the student to bake the pasty and sell it, train them to be an entrepreneur. It also makes sense when I speak with the in-charge person, the college has 4 day practical session and 1 day lecture session; if the student eat all the pastry they make, I believe you can imaging all their body size. (Just joking).

Speaking on entrepreneurship, if you can see outside the college, there is a burger stall? The in-charge person says they used to have student sell burger at night and their unique selling preposition is the bun is made by them self. This is really a very good business strategy for a college, yet due to that area is consider a low income area, community member around that neighbourhood does not have high spending power, so their business is not that good.

In my opinion; is lack of marketing and publicity. If college can leverage on digital marketing strategies, leverage on student to viral it, I believe people from next neighbourhood would willing to travel and purchase their pastry.

Kolej Kominity Tasek Gelugor Cafeteria

What This Bengkel Digital Marketing Covered?

During this Bengkel Digital Marketing workshop, I had deliver a few topics such as fundamental of digital marketing, social media marketing such as Facebook and Instagram, each participant manages to create their own Facebook fan page for business as well as Instagram account for business.

Apart from this, each participant also learns website marketing, how to set up their own business website, lead capture page for email marketing and also on page search engine optimization such as title and description for their website.

Kolej Komuniti Tasek Gelugor Computer Lab

The college has very well equipt computer lab (they are using IBM computer), also a fast internet connection (Speed test 30Mbps-50Mbps). Approximate 30 computer in the lab and because of social distancing, we could not fully utilize all the seats.

Bengkel Digital Marketing KKTG

For this Bengkel Digital Marketing workshop, because of all the participant is Malay, I am using bahasa Malaysia to conduct; is consider a breakthrough for me as I never conduct any class using bahasa Malaysia earlier, most of my class are in English and done once mandarin class in Johor. I would say my bahasa is not that fluent, lucky the participant able to understand and enjoy the 2 day class. Thanks to some participant for giving positive review too.

participant facebook review

Afiqah says: “Clear description in digital marketing, supportive and ready to help if you do not understand something.”

participant facebook review

Your Off-Pages SEO is wasted without proper indexing https://www.calvyn.com/why-back-links-need-indexing/ Sun, 31 May 2020 03:42:49 +0000 https://www.calvyn.com/?p=27043 Yeah yeah… all SEO “Guru” tell you the important of On-Page SEO, and most of them told you back links is important for Off-Page SEO, but how many of them teach you where to build your back links? Some say yes, “Who and who” share some method to create back links, or watch some SEO YouTube channel teach about link building strategies; Yet most of them does not tell you why back links need indexing, the important of indexing back links!

Why Back Links Need Indexing

Why Back Links Need Indexing?

Did you know that you’re probably wasting 50% or more of your link-building time and money? There is a very simple solution to this problem that most SEO gurus keep to themselves!

Most people don’t realize that google doesn’t see the entire web or perhaps not yet seen it; In fact, there is an entire part of the internet called The Deep Web! That earns that name precisely because Google and other search engines don’t know about it!

Where do you think all these fresh links live that you’ve bought are made? Right in the middle of that Deep Web, by just creating a bunch of links isn’t enough to help your rankings, you could have:

  • The highest quality links
  • The best anchor text diversity
  • The most effective drip rate and
  • The best on-page optimization

But if Google doesn’t happen to stumble across all of those links that you’re building, you aren’t getting credit for them and of course if Google doesn’t know about them, your site’s ranking also will not improve!

Important of indexing back links

That’s exactly why we need to index our back links. Indexing services usually make Google find all of your links on a schedule that you determine, the concept is as simple as it can be:

  1. Build your links,
  2. Paste your links into indexing services dashboard,
  3. The indexing service will drip your links out to Google, some allow you to schedule it, as fast as you want,
  4. They will watch to see when Google comes to find your links and
  5. They continually contact Google until all of your links are found!

Indexing services will be that missing piece that can dramatically improve your SEO results, it’s like a magnifying glass that focuses google on all of your link building, it makes the good tactics work even better and quickly exposes any bad tactics you may be using!

Now you know why back links need indexing and the important of indexing services? Don’t waste time and money to build links that are never found! Your Off-Pages SEO is wasted without proper indexing of your back links. Apart from using indexing services, one of the indexing method is using ping method, I have also mentioned in my previous post “Have your website been indexed?

What you waiting for? What you supposed to do next is to gather the list of link where you build your back link, submit into indexing services of use ping method to ping them, let search engine know your back links is existed!

I will share some link indexing services here later on, do bookmark this page and come back later 🙂

Yet bear in mind this is not 100% approval method, Maxbounty will pre-screen your application first, once approved they will contact you for an interview.

  2. Second tab, Basic info. Fill in your Name, Company Name if available, Password, click next.

  4. Forth tab, Contact. Fill in your email, phone number (Maxbounty will call you if you pass this pre-screening application), time zone, and when come to “When can you be reached?“, supposing after choosing your time zone, by common sense we assume Maxbounty will call you based on your preferable time on your time zone, but this is not the case. Maxbounty will call you based on their US. time zone. Refer my video for full explanation. After that key in your skype ID, you may add your Maxbounty’s account manager Skype ID later and communicate with them for further advice. Lastly, on “How did you hear about Maxbounty” you can place my name as referral because my account already generate income and conversion to them, my account is considered a reputable account to them, I also believe using my referral link https://www.calvyn.com/maxbounty will bring you higher chance of approval.
  5. Fifth tab. Address. Fill in your address and click next.
  6. Sixth tab. Experiences. This is the last part, also consider most critical part!. What is your experience? I would recommend I have some experience and have received at last one payment before. Next, “Describe how your pass experience with Affiliate Marketing“, you may mention that you have makes some commission with HostGator, or receive a check with ClickBank or you promote WordPress themes like elegant themes and receive payment before. Next, “How do you intend to promote offer?” Just elaborate you will use advertising network such as Google ads, Facebook Ads, Bing Ads, or kind of social media advertising such as Tik Tok Ads, reason because Maxbounty love affiliate marketer use paid advertising to promote their offer. Next, “What offer are you looking?” You may mention health-related product, dating product, sweepstakes, ecommerce product or single opt in or contest, it is up to your preference. Next, key in your URL where you plan to promote their offer, can be your blog URL. Finally one, “Is the account incentive traffic?“, I will put no, because not all offers in Maxbounty allow incentive traffic.
  7. Final tab. Terms. Accept all the terms and condition and submit your application.
  8. I miss out to mention this last step in my video. At your final page. there is an account manager name and skype ID, record this down and you may need to contact your account manager regarding your account approval status. (If you remember I mention before each of you will have an account manager who handling your Maxbounty account during my video at how to make side hustle during lockdown)
