A rather interesting discussion was developing in a LinkedIn group I joined. StyleDiary, a fashion geared group, is basically of course, all about modern trends and blogs gearing towards it. However, a young fashion designer bought on the idea of how searchers tend stop looking past the 3rd page of a Google search. “85% of the website traffic is generated by the search engines alone and 90% of the people do not go beyond the first three search pages,” he explained. His site, he claims, runs purely on keywords and with his limited budget, he found it incredibly hard to create a team solely dedicated to generating keywords that worked for the site.
I went on to add, “This was an interesting comment you made. The idea of keywords is something that is rather foreign to me but over time, I've realize that it is very important to understand this concept. For my own blog, I had to really brainstorm a lot of ideas to make it unique and yet, contain keywords that will bring in readers. I'll definitely check out www.ResultFirst.com and use their information.”
He recommended that all those who were confused in the same manner, should log onto www.ResultsFirst.com as this site would provide them with information that would help them to make their site more unique. This is an alien concept to me despite being a Marketing major. I found myself rather intrigued by what he said because it was interesting to understand how a site works with “keywords.”
The information, the discussion provided, despite only myself and the user who opened the discussion, being the only ones in the discussion, was incredibly useful to a person like myself who is needs to be educated in this area.
