SEO Strategic Roadmap

The human mind cannot know all the keywords being used in an online marketplace. Thus a business must select keywords by considering a huge range of keywords used within a market. This can only be done through scientifically-based research coordinated with a company's strategic direction. Persuasionworks provides one of the highest and most accurate degrees of Keyword Research. Deep links are links that point to pages in a website other than the home page. A high deep links percentage makes the domain more competitive. However, our research shows that a siloed site generally needs 10 times fewer links to achieve the same ranking as a non-siloed competitor. Generally, only about 1% or fewer of competitors in a market are siloed and this provides excellent opportunities for business websites.Inbound links are important for assessing competition but our research shows that a siloed site generally needs 10 times fewer links to achieve the same ranking as a non-siloed competitor. Only about 1% or fewer competitors in a market are siloed. This provides excellent opportunities for business websites.Many businesses use social media in the wrong way and for the wrong reasons. It's important to define your social media goals so they fit your wider strategic thrust. Don’t squander your marketing efforts in the wrong social platform.  Persuasionworks offers social media research to help businesses define their social media goals.Social media encompass a vast range of different sites. Our software enables YOUR prospects and customers to use one click to connect with 20+ major social sites. This facility gives you a vast range of social data you can use for marketing. At the very least, a blog on your business site is very useful as a social interaction and persuasion tool.Many marketers look at “Competing Pages” to determine if they should market on a particular keyword.   This is NOT a good guide to research keywords. Persuasionworks uses “Competing Pages” as only one of many research variables such as choosing a parent theme for a silo / synonymic set.The number of searchers in a marketplace is not a good guide for market viability. Persuasionworks uses complex algorithms to determine profit and growth potential of particular markets, niches, and right down to a single keyword.Google’s goal is always to deliver relevance to searchers. Google does this by looking for sites that demonstrate expertise across a range of themes in a topic. Google determines what themes are most relevant to a topic by scanning its index of “authority sites” and working out which themes have high “co-occurrence” (terms that are frequently talked about together on the same page).  Co-occurrence is a percentage that reflects the number of “conversations” in your market that mention certain keywords together.  Covering your market’s themes more comprehensively than your competitors is absolutely crucial for high rankings.It make no sense to spend money and time creating a website and sales process and then find out there's no online market for your product. Our proprietary system quickly discovers if a particular online market is a dud or has good profit and growth potential.It's a common mistake to confuse traffic with money. The best money indicator is Cost-per-Click (CPC) - a business will not continue paying for clicks if there's no return on expenditure.  Thus a high CPC is good evidence of buyers in a market.To assess a money market you must identify every important keyword in the market with its cost and traffic, average the Cost-per-Click, and multiply by the total searches for each keyword. Without software this is extremely time-consuming. Persuasionworks quickly assesses the worth of a market or niche - right down to a single keyword.Until recently, it was impossible to calculate accurately whether a keyword was likely to bring in buyers. Persuasionworks proprietary system shows - via easy to read graphics - if a particular keyword (or group of keywords) is likely to convert into sales.The process of comparing viable market niches is extremely time-consuming. Persuasionworks does these complex calculations very quickly. The system offers a number of ways to compare the value of keywords and markets. This value is measured in dollars and is designed to help businesses with their strategic determinations.Persuasionworks provides crucial data for determining whether there are actual buyers in a market. Some markets appear profitable because they have large numbers of searches, but it's important to look deeper to determine if the traffic can be monetized. Persuasionworks considers a number of key underlying factors to accurately pinpoint financial potential.At Persuasionworks we research themes rather than individual keywords. Our tests show that designing theme-based - rather than keyword-based – websites have dramatic rankings results. Theme-based optimization can boost rankings relatively quickly. A very large number of website marketers, in fact the vast majority, still use the old keyword-based system so this presents good opportunities for businesses.Theme-based optimization is meant to mimic the thinking and language patterns of real human subject matter experts. At Persuasionworks we don’t simply provide you with a long list of keywords to use on your website. We blend our keywords and themes after careful consultation with you to determine your business and marketing objectives.It’s always helpful to “ladder” product offerings on the internet.

A business website must select keywords by considering a huge range of keywords used in a market. This can only be done through scientifically-based research that is coordinated with a company's strategic direction. Persuasionworks provides one of the highest and most accurate degrees of Keyword Research. Many search optimizers simply look at the top 10 Google results of a keyword, reverse engineer what’s been done to rank high, and then present that as their SEO suggestions.  This tactic is dangerous. Most websites use outdated rather than theme based SEO. They rank high because no other business in that marketplace has adopted the new methods. Persuasionworks can easily reverse engineer your competition if you wish – but our SEO methods go far beyond this particular tactic.Persuasionworks’ software monitors a vast range of social media outlets including:  news, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, forums and much more!A social media marketing strategy is a “must have” component of internet marketing.
