So you have been successful at driving traffic to your site but haven’t paid any attention as to where your visitors may have come from?
In search marketing sphere, we need to be aware of where our visitors had been in order to figure out what they are trying to accomplish on our site.
Our website traffic is arriving from 2 different sources: search results and display ads.
Let’s simplify so that you understand why traffic from these two sources might be doing on your site and how you need to tweak little things in your site, like your posts (landing page) for example, in order to address their needs.
You see, search engine traffic wants something instantly, such as solution to their problem, more information about a product, and basically everything else.
On the other hand, traffic generated through the display ad is made up from those curious ones whom you have managed to distract from whatever they were searching for on the referring site.
As each visitor is from different sources, your landing page also needs to be slightly different too. That means the 2 universes MUST also land on 2 different posts, or 2 different landing pages.
The Search Universe
Traffic coming from the search universe essentially wants to find answers about a product or a service.
With this clue, you can design a landing page that offers answers to their pressing questions by imagining what their questions may be!
Just consider, what would they ask if they were to call your business?
For example, if someone was searching for the keyword phrase, “domain names registration services,” wouldn’t that translate into “Hey, I would like to give me your quick quotation for domain name packages?”
Once you’ve framed your visitors’ intention, it would be easier for you to imagine how your landing page would be like, wouldn’t it?
On the other hand, you DO NOT want to create a “Welcome to our Domain Name Business Site!” page that talks about when you started your business, how many people work at your firm.
No, you do not want that to happen!
They simply want a catalog home page (using professional pictures) that clearly highlights each category of services.
The Display Universe
Although display visitors are slightly difficult to figure out, nonetheless, they still do leave some clues that can help you to help them.
Just pay attention to ads they click, or the site where they might have seen those ads.
Additionally, if you use display ads among certain niche, or topics, or keywords, you can quickly understand who your traffic are and what do they want in general.
For instance, people who just left your domain name registration site last week may be tempted by a coupon offer for the item they had almost purchased.
Once you have a clear idea as to where your visitors are coming from and what their intentions are, you can devise a landing page accordingly.
For example, an audience of photographer whose search term and browsing behavior clearly shows them to be an enthusiastic about “DSLR camera supplies,” you can then focus your energy on crafting out a page that helps them how to make their next shots amazing.
On the other hand, visitors coming from an ad display network who have just read an article about “Ways of placing Buddha statues,” would likely appreciate a page that offers them specific information about those particular techniques.
Additionally, you can also look for other clues to find out where they may have just been and their mindset of their visitors, like Geography (country, state, region, or city they searched through), as well as the time of the day, and even, day of the week.
While city dwellers may just be hobbyists, tourists in a foreign land may be running a “DSLR Studios.”
Similarly, while weekend or even evening visitors may just be hobbyists, visitors who come to your site during work day may be professional photographers.
Just remember, while there might be several different ports of entry to a country, however, there will only be one from a particular place.
Likewise, while they may be hundreds of different ways for your visitors to find your site, nonetheless, each of them arrived from one specific place.
Not to mention, they all arrived with a passport stamp that tells where exactly they had been.
Several Mondays ago, Matt Cutts from Google wrote in Google forums that link coming back from press releases do not help in search engine rankings!
On the other hand, SEO Consult blog performed a test explaining how press release backlinks can actually help in ranking your site higher in Google. Ironically, the test was conducted on Matt blog where SEO Consult published press release with a link (anchor) text “sreppleasers” on PR.com pointing back to Matt’s blog.
Shortly after, Google indexed the press release and Matt’s blog started to rank for the text link in that press release!
What Did Matt’s Comment Mean About Press Release Rankings?
So, what Matt meant in his comment in Google forum when he said, “I don’t think press release links can benefit your website’s rankings” Did he mean it won’t be useful for high competitive keywords? Or was he pointing to particular PR sites? We aren’t sure, though!
Meanwhile, there has been LOT of discussions on whether putting backlinks on press release can actually help in search engine rankings for specific phrases. Although Matt Cutts thinks that having backlinks in press releases don’t really benefit search engine rankings, the above example proves it otherwise.
Press Release – Does it really help in Improving Site’s Ranking?
However, submitting a press release along with an anchor text to a “spammy” PR sites for the sole purpose of gaining higher ranking is NEVER recommended. If you think you’ll gain better rankings through low quality PR sites, it will likely go down the drain just as article submission sites did when thousands of SEMs tried to manipulate SEO rankings by placing spammy backlinks in their articles.
So, we highly suggest that you stick to what works and what Google recommends. That means creating press releases containing useful links that provide in-depth information on the topic to publishers. In other words, attract traffic naturally by writing down high quality and useful content.
Press Releases – Effective Tips to Improve Search Engine Rankings
Well, if you are really serious about BOOSTING your site’s ranking through PR sites, then here are 5 effective tips you can follow:
1. Select relevant keywords – In your SEO campaign, you always need to be aware of list of keywords that you will aim to build rankings of your site. So, choose few keywords from your master list that has high relevance to the press release content.
2. Use proper keywords in Press Release – After you’ve chosen few relevant keywords to the content of your press releases, insert them naturally into the title as well as the body.
Don’t try to stuff the keywords as they will disrupt the flow of the article and irritate readers. Distribution services will abruptly reject those press releases that appear spammy.
Plus, make sure that you have an anchor text with your main keyword in it so that visitors are taken to a more relevant page on your website.
3. Pay for legitimate distribution service – Although you may find large number of FREE press release distribution sites/services out there, nonetheless, they come with limitations – links are not allowed in the press release when used as free and you have very little control over its distribution.
Instead, use a paid distribution service as they offer you the best opportunity to have your PR get picked up and indexed on several other related sites.
4. Post as a web page or a blog – To make press release more valuable, write a copy of it in a slightly different manner and post it on your site/blog. Not only it will improve your website content, but it will also retain for long allowing visitors to find more information whenever they require.
5. Use social media for promotion – Once you’ve published the press release, use social media to promote it and ask others to share it by putting up like and share buttons wherever appropriate.
If your readers find your press release attractive and interesting, they’ll more likely share them, and as a result, you’ll receive more social connections and build you online presence better.
In summary, we think press releases are not only useful to inform your audience about important news about your site but also BOOST the search engine rankings to attract more readers to your site.
