Your websites search engine ranking can change every day!
Ever since I learned how to build and promote my own websites, I also learned that SEO is a vital part of creating a good website with a solid ranking on all major search engines. And along the way I came across Mike website which offers free SEO tools. YES believe it or not ….. there is still something out there for free.
And I will gladly share the website address with all of you who are interested in trying it: Go and check it out at Mikes Marketing Tools.
Another one I use is SEO Centro right now it only checks Bing and Yahoo but usually all three search engines are included in the search.
Why is it important not to check through your computer directly through the various search engines ….? BECAUSE the search engines “remember” your IP address and recognize what you like to look for and pull those sides up above others. So your search result would be custom made for you and your likings and would not really reflect the general search result any other user would get.
As Bruce Clay says it so nicely : “……you should understand that being among the top 3 rankings in every major search engine and directory can be achieved, although very few sites can get there, and the effort is often beyond reason. Ranking results change week-to-week due to competition, so maintaining a top organic SEO ranking requires constant keyword monitoring and information rework. Search engine optimization never rests, much like your competition.
It is not the job of search engine optimization to make a pig fly.
It is the job of the SEO to genetically re-engineer the Website so that it becomes an eagle. …….”
We have to stay on top of things and that includes to keep an eye on how our website ranks on our main key words !! Even when you might have hired out your website design and SEO to a company you should not just sit back and leave it to the professionals. One day you might wake up realizing that your website is not found online at all. At that time it probably is too late for simple adjustments and it definitely already resulted in a loss of income for you.
So just by keeping an eye on things you stay current.
The logical next step for you would be to learn to understand how SEO works and for those of you who work with wordpress there is an amazing SEO tool (widget) out there again for free that helps you to get your keyword ranking JUST right ….. even for those keywords you might want to include to broaden your range of ranking. But this will make the content for another post I will write next time.
So have a great day and keep on searching 🙂
