Clearly these two elements would work well in unison however in this article we will explain to you a few tips on how you can implement your own online marketing strategy using both marketing and SEO.
It is worth noting that without full implementation and investment in time and effort, results WILL vary.
So step one is realized. You now know that without any online marketing you are stunting the growth of your company. However like they say, "on the road to recovery we first have to recognize a problem exists."
And now comes the work.
Firstly step one is the foundation. This being the domain name. Now not always is our domain as great as we would like however we need to recognize a couple things first in regards to the URL. Does the domain contain your keyword phrase that specifically hits your target market and is something they will search for? If so then you are well ahead of the game already. If not then we simply have to put in twice the effort in order to get it ranking for the desired keyword phrase.
Tip #1: Have target keyword phrase in your domain.
Secondly you absolutely must have your meta tags. ALL OF THEM. This includes meta title, meta description and meta keywords. And all of the elements together must work together in such a fashion that is not only readable by human standards but also strategic. Meta tags are the single most important factor to onsite SEO.
Tip #2: All pages MUST include meta tags: title, description and keywords.
Third and last for the SEO part of this self Costa Rica SEO and marketing guide is backlinking. Backlinks are the prime ingredient to offsite SEO and just happens to be the "food" Google loves. There are a few things to understand about backlinking though. Try to always acquire backlinks on sites that are equal to or high in PR than your own site. Also crucial, is the fact that these backlinks need to be on RELEVANT sites to your own market. So essentially a company selling lawn mowers might not want backlinking from an industry hydraulics site.
Tip #3: Acquire backlinks from relevant, high page rank sites to your own.
