Resort SEO – So Much More Than Three Little Letters
There are over 5,000 searches online every month for resorts just in Montana. How do you make your business stand out among your competitors? How do you make certain that when they search for what you offer your site not only comes up, but grabs their attention and causes them to choose your resort? In Montana, SEO is just as important as it is anywhere else, but there is more to it than you may think.
So, What the Heck is SEO Anyway?
SEO, or search engine optimization, is the term used to describe the strategic placement of key phrases in web content to cause the content to appear in search results when those key phrases are searched. In the early years of SEO, there were few restrictions on this. Keyword stuffing, or the random placing of keywords in content where they did not even make sense, was rampant. If you searched a keyword you may or may not get results actually related to what you were trying to research. The information on the pages may or may not have been useful, and there was a lot of frustration. Over the years, as search engines have gotten more sophisticated, and consumers have adapted to new technologies, everything has changed.
Websites with Poor SEO are in Google’s Sights
Search engines, most significantly Google, have changed the way the SEO game is played. The Big G has drawn a bead on poor SEO practices, and is shooting down low-quality websites left and right. Now everywhere, SEO is more than just stuffing keywords as frequently as possible into a page. Most article directories will not accept articles that don’t make sense or don’t provide useful information. This means that while the keywords are still there, they’re now incorporated in such a way that they blend well with valuable information in the article.
There are a few different ways for you to get this type of content, so it is not like you do not have options. None of them compare to what we offer however. You could write it yourself, but unless you are an exemplary writer, this is not a good idea. Your content is what convinces the customer that what you have is what they want. If they see a lot of poorly written articles that offer no truly useful information and have a key word thrown in occasionally, they are not going to be impressed.
There are also content mills that will write content on whatever subject you wish and however you wish for a fee. There are a couple of problems with this however. These writers often write content for hundreds of different sites per week. This can make it hard for them to make your content truly unique to your site. They also can be from anywhere in the world, which would make it hard for them to specifically utilize unique content in order to tailor your site to attract guests within your specific market.
