“You’ve been involved in auditing and correcting websites’ search engine optimization issues for some time. You’re a real expert in it, and you shared with me that what almost always spurs a call to you for an SEO or a website audit project is a dramatic drop in website traffic or leads. Why would you think that is happening?”
Co-Founder and President, Beasley Direct and Online Marketing, Inc.
“Well, that goes back to sort of neglecting the site. Well, it can happen for two reasons. Google does do updates in their search algorithms, and there have been, over the last few years, some pretty major updates. If anybody’s been following them, they have had some funny code names, Hummingbird and things like that, Penguin, and with each of those updates, if people were not paying attention to them, there have been some pretty disastrous falling off the cliff of search results for companies. They were scrambling to catch up and make changes to their sites to catch up with those updates. But beyond that, folks are letting their SEO fall by the wayside by not focusing on keeping their sites optimized for Google’s top search ranking factors. This lack of maintenance comes from a lack of marketing commitment and understanding. And often the web development group just doesn’t understand Google and doesn’t maintain the site so Google can index it. So let’s talk more about this.” ”
