The Growth of Local Search

Growth of Local Search
Local search, or searching for local businesses on search engines, is becoming one of the most popular search types on the web as more and more people start to use search engines to search for a local service.

The use of search engines to search for local resources has been increasing over the years. As per a study conducted by Webvisible and Nielson on 2000 adults in the U.S in October, 2007, around 74% mentioned that they used search engines as the primary source for obtaining local information.

Local search marketing refers to search marketing in a limited geographical area. For example optimising a website for a restaurant situated in Newcastle upon Tyne (North East UK) using Local Search Marketing would differ from regular UK wide Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

To find out about how your website could appear in the local searches for your businesses key phrases give Direct Submit Internet Marketing a call now.

Microsoft Unveil Surface

Microsoft Unveil Surface
Microsoft has unveiled Surface – its own-brand family of tablets. The touch screen computers will be powered by its upcoming Windows 8 system and contain a choice of an Intel or ARM-based processor. It allows Microsoft to challenge Apple’s best selling iPad Technology with a device that can run standard applications such as its own Office programs and Photoshop.

But it puts Microsoft in competition with other manufacturers planning to release tablets designed for Windows 8. The company’s chief executive, Steve Ballmer, said he had wanted to give the software “its own companion hardware”.

The devices have 10.6 inch screen displays, built-in kickstands and are housed in magnesium cases, which the company described as the first of their kind. The ARM-based tablets are 9.3mm (0.4 inches) thick, slightly less than the iPad and run the Windows RT version of the new system.

The Verge reported that the chipset will be built by Nvidia. Third-party developers must rewrite programs from scratch to run on the system’s Metro interface to work on these devices. The versions using Intel’s x86 technology run Windows 8 Pro and are 13.5mm (0.5 inches) thick. These can run Metro and an updated version of the “classic” desktop meaning they can use software designed for earlier editions of Windows, although some programs will need to be updated to be compatible.

Guide to Choosing Keywords

Choosing and Researching Keywords
It can be difficult to choose the keywords that describe your company and its products or services so that users will see your website when they perform an online search. Obviously, you want people who are searching for what products or services you provide to find your website near the top of the search engine results pages, so how do you achieve this?

The answer is “by using keywords and key phrases in your website content.” These are the words that people type into search engines when they are looking for something.

Choosing and researching good keywords is a process that takes several steps that can essentially be broken down into the following stages:

Initial keyword Research
Have a brain storming session with your staff and, if possible, customers. Ask other people for ideas, too, including your family, try to get as many opinions as possible. You will often discover that what you consider your optimal key phrases are not those typically used by your customers.

Use Key Word Research Tools
There are several online keyword research tools that offer information about the number of times users perform searches for specific words. These can help you identify key phrases ‘related’ to your products or services that might help generate quality traffic to your website.

Selecting of Key Words
Use the research you have done and select the most appropriate key words that is likely to deliver the best results for your business. Note this may mean you choose a key phrase that isn’t the most searched for (which will probably be the most ‘competitive’ in terms of achieving a page 1 result on the web) but which will bring you high quality traffic in numbers that should help generate you business.

Analytics
After you’ve chosen your keywords and optimized your site, you need to perform measurements to see whether it’s delivering the amount of traffic and conversions you expected. You can use this information to make adjustments and refine your keyword strategy.

The above represents a fairly basic overview of choosing effective key phrases for your website and the web is full of more in depth articles and guides to help you. For more information on choosing the right key words for your website call Direct Submit and see how we can help you make the most of your Internet project.
