The 5 steps to an effective keyword strategy

It's worth the pain though, because it is - without question - THE most crucial stage in the development of effective web content. We'd never dream of putting pen to paper on some new web copy without going through a comprehensive (and yes, possibly quite tedious) keyword study.

Why? Well, the Internet is a very competitive place and without suitable, relevant keywords to focus on, there's a very good chance that no-one will ever stumble upon your site, read what you've written and make that enquiry.

It's no exaggeration to say that the process of keyword research is one of the most important jobs we do for our clients. That's why it has to be approached with no small amount of patience and a tried and trusted method.

So how do you know which words will perform well, drive traffic and convert sales? What is a suitable, relevant keyword?

Over the next few weeks, we'll run through the main points of our method, highlighting the various stages we go through when developing an effective keyword strategy.

  • Layer upon layer: why re-using existing infrastructure just makes so much fibre sense

    For thousands of years, and probably from not long after the end of the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago, a major track connected the Celts in the far South with their cousins in the North. By the time of the Roman Conquest, the British were still using this route; recognising its utility, legionnaires soon paved it and called it Ermine Street, using it to connect their capital, Londinium, with their far-off bases in Lincoln (Lindum Colonia) and York (Eboracum). Later, the English called it the Old North Road; and our A1 largely follows the same route. That’s continuity in infrastructure for you.

  • Italy’s trying to go back to the future to get universal broadband. We don’t think it’ll work

    One broadband operatore to rule them all? Rome’s attempt to build a national broadband service in a day. Reports on possible Italian state intervention raises less than comfortable memories of Blunders down Under and under-priced manifesto offers.
