If you use SEO (search engine optimization) in the right way, it is one of the most effective ways to attract potential customers to your website. If you rank on page one of the SERP (Search Engine Results Pages) you will generate organic traffic.

This is where you need SEO.

In this article I will cover seven SEO trends to leverage in your online advertising.


1) CORE WEB VITALS

Google is rolling out a new algorithm update which integrates a new set of metrics known as Core Web Vitals into what Google has traditionally referred to as “page experience.” These metrics measure how long it takes a user to get to your page, how easy/difficult it is for the user to initially interact with your page, and how easy/difficult it is for the user to become disoriented due to inconsistencies/shifts in your page design.


2) GOOGLE’S BERT

Google’s BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) algorithm uses machine learning and natural processing to understand what users are actually looking for. With the BERT update Google search engine bots are much more “conversational.” Google’s algorithm can interpret the intent of a searcher. In other words, Google can understand things like the human brain.

To optimize for Google’s BERT be sure your content and the keyword intent match. If people are searching for “seo” as a keyword on Google, they want to know about SEO. On the other hand, they may search “seo services” or “seo expert.”

Always perform a keyword search on Google before writing your content to be sure the keyword you’re trying to rank for matches the searchers’ intent. You can do a search to find free and paid SEO tools.


3) KEYWORD RESEARCH


Keyword research is becoming more important. Use long-tail and targeted keywords, and understand the intent. While SEO tools are important to use you need to analyze the SERP for the keyword before selecting it.

If the intent is right, even a low-volume keyword with only 10-20 searches per month can still generate thousands of dollars.

That’s why you do your keyword research with patience and find keywords that can easily rank and generate income for you.


4) ORIGINAL CONTENT

Google still wants original content. That is, unique content that hasn’t been published elsewhere. It must be authentic, useful, and add value in your own brand voice and language.


5) VOICE SEARCH

A staggering number of the global population are using voice search on their mobile phones. These search queries are long-tail and extremely specific.


6) ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Due to the personalization that AI provides, it is changing the SEO and marketing industry. Google uses AI to provide searchers with the results they’re looking for.


7) VIDEO MARKETING

YouTube, the second most popular search engine (Google being number one), has over a billion users. Now is the time to get started with videos if you aren’t already using them.

To optimize video content for search engines, start by optimizing your video channel name and description. Keywords are important, however, don’t overdo it. Just provide a user-friendly description about your channel.

As you start typing the topic of your video, related suggested keywords will pop up in the search field. You can use these for optimizing your video to reach the right audience.

Remember, to rank higher or just to maintain rankings with Google’s ever-evolving algorithm, you need to keep modifying your SEO strategy.

These are seven SEO trends to leverage in your online advertising. Keep these trends in mind and use them to continue driving relevant traffic to your website.

Advertising Online

While watching TV the other day, a particular commercial caught my attention. I usually just tune them out. As it was approaching President’s Day in the United States, this particular advertisement was for an automobile sale coming up on that particular day, as it is a popular day for stores to start their sales. So, I was thinking of this advertisement in terms of advertising online.

 

Monday February 17th was President’s Day in the United States. While deciding the content for this blog post, I did some fact checking regarding the day. Here’s what I got from Wickipedia.

 

Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government.

 

Although Lincoln’s birthday, February 12, was never a federal holiday, approximately a dozen state governments have officially renamed their Washington’s Birthday observances as “Presidents’ Day,” “Washington and Lincoln Day,” or other such designations.

 

George Washington’s birthday is on February 22.

 

The ad I mentioned above has run for some years with these two presidents in one form or another – Lincoln in his top hat and Washington in his wig. The remarkable thing this year was the addition of the non-traditional hip hop musical style of Paul Revere and the Night Riders bringing up the rear.

 

In the TV ad the attention grabber was the two presidents – beginning. The middle was the entrance of Paul Revere and the Night Riders performing hip hop, and the sell was a particular automobile. As is often stated, the times they are a changin’. Is there no reverence left? 🙂

 

Internet marketing and advertising is like advertising on TV or anyplace. There’s a story with a beginning, a middle and the end. You have a few seconds to get peoples’ attention (beginning), then draw them in (middle), then sell them something (end).

 

With only a few seconds to grab peoples’ attention when advertising online, you have to have a stand-out headline or title.

 

Then you draw them in (middle) using some bullet points about your program or service or a video; after which you direct them to take action (end) by filling out a form with their name and email for more information.
