Why You Need To Pay Attention To Your Website’s Page Speed

by Justin Marshall @ webFEAT Complete

SEO as a practice covers countless areas that factor into getting your website to rank better. It’s very much like an umbrella with hundreds of little things underneath of it all working together. There are title tags, inbound links, meta descriptions, keyword research, domain trust, image optimization and the list goes on and on. But there is one thing that many people may disregard when it comes to Search Engine Optimization – and that’s page speed. The issue is most prevalent in small to mid-sized businesses and page speed can become a deal breaker when Google comes to check in on your website. Google even has some Page Speed Guidelines if you are interested in looking into it. What Affects My Website’s Page Speed? From everything documented by Google it implies that they take a website’s page speed pretty seriously and if your website loads too slow you could be getting penalized for it. And if you think about it, it makes sense. No one wants to click on a high ranking page only to find it’s taking 10-15 seconds to load. There are lots of things that could be accounting for your slow loading site. From text and images […]

Essential Social Media Tools: Canva

by Justin Marshall @ webFEAT Complete

Social media, if you haven’t noticed by now, has evolved over the years to become a highly visual medium. All you need to do is look at the success of Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat to realize that people like looking at visually appealing posts rather than reading text. If you think about it it make perfect sense. Would you rather scroll through images where your brain can automatically decipher what’s happening. Or stop and read a description of something? The problem that most small business owners run into however is that they lack the staff and/or the design and photography skills to efficiently create great visual posts. However it’s been documented that social posts with images produce 650% higher engagement rates than posts without images (no, that is not a typo) so it’s vital imagery is included with your social media efforts. Luckily, for the design deficient business owners out there there are tools to help guide you along the way. And the one we recommend most to our clients is a free tool called Canva. What is Canva?

Yoast’s Readability Score + Focus Keyword Factors: How Much Should You Pay Attention to Them?

by Ray Cheselka @ webFEAT Complete

If you’re new to Yoast’s SEO plugin within WordPress, you may be wondering, “Do the Yoast readability and focus keyword scores make a difference in the success of my page?” Well, there are a couple of ways you can look at that question. If you mean, “do they have a direct impact on my rankings,” the answer is no. If you mean, “do they use best practices as guidelines that, when followed, can improve your rankings,” the answer is yes. As an SEO, it’s easy to get in the habit of following these guidelines without giving them much thought, but if you’re a business owner or marketing manager who is unfamiliar with most SEO practices, you may have to do some research. Fortunately, all of the research you need to do is in this blog post! Disclaimer: just because you follow the Yoast Readability and Focus Keyword guidelines on all pages/posts of your website does not mean that you will rank well. There are many, many other factors influencing rankings that someone who isn’t an SEO might not be aware of. However, by following their guidelines, you’ll probably have an advantage over a few competitors who aren’t doing any SEO […]

Why Your Business Needs Social Media Marketing

by Justin Marshall @ webFEAT Complete

It’s safe to say that you’ve probably noticed the rapid emergence of social media in today’s Internet centric society. Everyone and their grandma (seriously) have some sort of social media presence. It’s become a focal point in our day-to-day lives and even if you try, an impossible thing to escape. And this is no different for businesses. It’s come to the point, especially for newer generations, if your business isn’t on social media in some capacity you’re not even in existence at all in their eyes. That where Social Media Marketing comes in. But, why would a business need social media? You may still be thinking “but why would a business need social media marketing?” This question finds its roots from the early days of social networking. It used to be an outlet where you could keep tabs on your friends and family and share personal photos and updates about what is going on in your own life. This isn’t the case anymore as the social media landscape has morphed and evolved into a central hub for more than 81% of the United States population. Let’s take a deeper look into why your business would need social media. Your customers […]

Web Design Trends You Need To Know About In 2017

by Justin Marshall @ webFEAT Complete

Another year has come and gone and with it goes the web design trends from 2016. But that also means a new wave of web design trends for 2017 are set to start popping up around the web this year. Every year you start to see new and creative ways designers choose to create web sites. Sometimes they are simply for aesthetic reasons but other times they serve a fundamental purpose in the way a website functions. Take 2016’s design trends which included things such as material design and a larger focus on responsive website design. Will 2016’s trends crossover into 2017? Let’s take a look. Mobile First Approach Web design trends this year are focusing on designing a website with mobile in mind first and desktop in mind second. Meaning, the first thing a designer is going to think about is “is this optimized for mobile?” From there they work their way up to desktop design. What this does (we’ll get into this more later on) is force companies to strip away the less important aspects of a website because of the smaller form factor. It also lets designers (we’ll also get into this one later) add in some […]

Why Your Website Isn’t Showing Up On Google

by Ray Cheselka @ webFEAT Complete

At webFEAT, we get this question all the time: “Why isn’t my business showing up on Google?” or “I used to rank on page 1, and now I’m nowhere to be found. Why did my rankings drop off?” Whether you’re a new or existing business,  the first page for searches relevant to your business or specifically for your brand is of the utmost importance. If you’re a new business trying to generate exposure and you succeed, that will not matter if folks can’t find you online. Let’s say a person hears about your business or sees an ad and then goes online to search for your brand name. If your brand’s website and perhaps a business listing don’t appear, you will likely lose a prospective customer. If you provide a service and someone searches “(service) Cincinnati” or something more specific, and you don’t come up, the ones appearing (your competitors) will get the business. Your website’s appearance in Google and other search engines depends on various factors. For branded search, it’s not too difficult to get you indexed and appearing, but for specific, non-branded product/service searches that are more competitive, it takes some real SEO effort. In this post we’ll […]

Crawl Errors: How to Resolve, Notify Google and Monitor

by Ray Cheselka @ webFEAT Complete

Over time, as new websites are launched, URLs are changed and pages are removed or unpublished, broken links begin to litter the search results, and significantly impact the rankings of websites. As an SEO, one of the first things you learn is that broken links are one of the biggest no-no’s in our digital world. Often times they are a first priority when beginning to optimize a website. A good place to reference your broken links in search is through Google Search Console’s (formerly Webmaster Tools) crawl errors report. Search Console Crawl Errors Report Every time I  head into Google’s Search Console to review the crawl errors report, I’m hopeful that the number of errors is low. If a website is properly managed, one can be fortunate enough to have little to no 404s, 500s and other errors. In certain cases when a website isn’t properly managed, there can be thousands. In order to start correcting the errors associated with your domain, you first have to get there. Here is how you can do that: Head to Google’s Search Console Select your primary domain (or submit and verify it) In the left hand side navigation click the “Crawl” drop-down Select […]

Local Business Websites Before + After Converting to Mobile Friendly

by Ray Cheselka @ webFEAT Complete

Over the past year or so, we’ve been strongly advising all of our clients with non-mobile friendly websites to convert to a mobile-friendly website. When asked why, the simplest answer is that the number of users searching for products and services on their cell phones and tablets is consistently increasing (source: smartinsights.com.) A more detailed answer involves Google, the warnings they’ve sent out, and specific domain reactions to algorithm updates (Mobilegeddon in April 2015 and the second mobile update in May 2016.) Google has put out several warnings that non-mobile friendly websites will be negatively impacted in search, and they even put a link in search results that says “This site is not mobile-friendly.”  The bottom line is, if you want your website to sustain its existing search rankings or sustain growth in digital presence, it needs to be mobile friendly. If your competitors have mobile-friendly websites, your drop off in the search results will be accelerated. If they have yet to convert, this is a prime opportunity to take a bigger piece of the pie. Either way, an updated website that is suitable to users and bots will play to your business’ advantage now and in the future. When […]

8 Common Pitfalls of Writing Website Content

by K. Smith @ webFEAT Complete

Words are all over the internet. In fact, if you could print the entire internet in pages, like a book, you would get an estimated 305 billion. For scale, that’s 203 million copies of War and Peace, or 74 million copies of the entire Harry Potter series. With the internet’s flood of words comes a demand for people to arrange those words in a more-or-less pleasant way. That’s where you, the content writer, come in. As with any type of writing, web writing has quirks and nuances that make it distinct from the other types of writing. However, web writing is far-and-away the youngest form of writing, with early internet service providers popping up around 1995.

As such, there’s no Chicago Manual of Style for the internet, but we do have a lot of insights that show us how you should be writing on the web. So, whether you’re a pro or just starting out, here are […]
