Ziel von SEO ist es somit nicht, einfach nur oben zu stehen. Die Darstellung des in den Suchmaschinen zur Verfügung stehenden Textes (Snippet) soll den Nutzer zu einem Klick auf dein Ergebnis motivieren. Ziel ist es, die Erwartung des Nutzers in Hinsicht auf inhaltliche Übereinstimmung zwischen Suchbegriff, Snippet und Relevanz deiner Webseite zu erfüllen.
If you are launching in a competitive category and you know this to be the case, then you may indeed have to invest more heavily at the start to get ahead. It obviously varies by product and category, and this is why we often advise new sellers to go for non-competitive categories with high demand. That’s not to say you should never launch in a competitive category though – and props to you for going for it!
Charset :ASCII was the first character encoding standard (also called character set). ASCII defined 127 different alphanumeric characters that could be used on the internet: numbers (0-9), English letters (A-Z), and some special characters like ! $ + - ( ) @ < > .ANSI (Windows-1252) was the original Windows character set, with support for 256 different character codes.

Der Kundenservice eines Unternehmens ist oftmals neben Faktoren wie Lieferschnelligkeit, Usability der Webseite, etc. ein Aushängeschild des Unternehmens. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse der Servicestrategie Ihrer Konkurrenz dient dazu, die eigene Positionierung in diesem Segment zu verstehen und ggf. neu auszurichten. Interessante Fakten sind unter anderem:
It can be easy to go down a deep rabbit hole with this process. There are thousands of blog posts with helpful hints (you’re reading one right now), and hundreds of tools that can potentially improve or otherwise streamline the process of researching keywords and devising a smart keyword strategy. That’s why we advise you keep things simple for starters. You can always layer on complexity as you gain experience. More than anything, good SEO efforts revolve around creating content experiments, measuring them, then doing more of what works and less of what doesn’t. Simpler is often better, especially if you are resource constrained. A good content governance strategy should dictate that you take on only as much as your resources allow.

Bestimmung der Fähigkeiten des Konkurrenten: Unter diesem Punkt fasst Grant die Ressourcen und die Aktionsmöglichkeiten eines Konkurrenten zusammen. So, wie ein Formel-1-Rennwagen nur mit den Fähigkeiten eines Fahrers zu einem Sieg kommen kann, so kann auch ein Unternehmen nur aus der sinnvollen Kombination von materiellen und menschlichen Ressourcen erfolgreich sein. Die Kenntnis dieser Fähigkeiten eines Konkurrenten lässt direkt auf seine Fähigkeit schließen, eine bestimmte Aktion auszuführen.

No matter which tool you use, you’re looking for keywords that have a good balance between search volume and competitiveness, which depends on your business and your audience. For example, you might find that lower volume keywords convert a higher percentage of people because while they don’t get much traffic, that traffic has higher purchase intent. The best way to figure it out is to start, and keep track of what works.
You should always track and monitor the effectiveness of your PPC campaign. You should know what things are working for you in a better way. If you are publishing your ads on the Google search platform using the Google Adwords tool, use Google Analytics to get better insights into searcher’s behavior. You should measure the bounce rate of your website. Bounce rate will tell you how many searchers visited your site but did not perform any action. You should also track CTR and conversion rate of your campaign. This will help you to optimize your PPC campaign and your landing page.
So, fellow marketers, the secret is out—now you know that the key to really driving your conversion rate isn’t in minor copy or bidding adjustments. The true PPC CRO best practices require you to use negative keywords and to target keywords that your bottom-of-the-funnel prospects are searching for—including those that are pricing and service-oriented. You want to use high-converting ad formats, such as Google Shopping Campaigns and video ads, to capture the attention of your audience and engage them. Your landing pages should be designed well, easily browsable, and have fast loading times. It’s also important to personalize your ads so that your potential customers feel like you’re speaking directly to them, which also helps humanize your brand. Finally, use retargeting to remarket your products and services to previously interested visitors to your website, enticing them back and convert. 

Export the weighted list back to your spreadsheet and combine it with the others in Excel. Then use the data tools to sort the list by ‘Priority’ – this is a score based on the difficulty, traffic, opportunity and your score. This tells you which keywords you should be targeting in descending order of attractiveness. Suddenly, you’ve turned more than 1,000 keywords into a usable list of a few dozen. Using the same example for wines:
Ego and assumptions led me to choose the wrong keywords for my own site. How did I spend three years optimizing my site and building links to finally crack the top three for six critical keywords, only to find out that I wasted all that time? However, in spite of targeting the wrong words, Seer grew the business. In this presentation, Will shows you the mistakes made and share with you the approaches that can help you build content that gets you thanked.
Google's AdWords Keyword Planner tool is another common starting point for SEO keyword research. It not only suggests keywords and provides estimated search volume, but also predicts the cost of running paid campaigns for these terms. To determine volume for a particular keyword, be sure to set the Match Type to [Exact] and look under Local Monthly Searches. Remember that these represent total searches. Depending on your ranking and click-through rate, the actual number of visitors you achieve for these keywords will usually be much lower.
Today, more companies, brands and platforms are recognizing the value of integrating geotargeting into social media advertising campaigns. According to Lathan Fritz, local sales expert, big data geomarketing thought leader and founder of sales funnel agency Amerisales, there are numerous benefits to adding geotargeting to your Facebook ad campaigns. By specifically targeting a demographic based on location, companies experience increased returns on their social media advertising investments. This success comes from more precise targeting of an ad’s intended audience—something that is made even easier thanks to the ability to add geotargeting to previous Facebook posts.
The SEO Checker analyze the title, description, h1/h2/h3/h4/h5/h6 tags, their correct filling, and their relation with the content from the web page. We look at the size of all the content, and if all content files can be loaded and exist. We look for all the keywords on the page, how many times they appear, and if they appear in the title, description, or h1/h2/h3/h4/h5/h6 tags. We analyze your social media status, and look if you use the properly social media meta tags. Also we look for the site usability, site reputation, site speed, and much more.
Geolocation technology can also be used for planning virtual events or experiences that combine physical and virtual or augmented reality. For example, the Pokémon GO game was able to parlay geolocation into a great success. Advertisers can use the same strategy to develop virtual experiences around a brand or product. This can involve using geolocation at events to track attendees and deliver specific information that enhances their overall experience.
Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann auch genutzt werden um die eigene Positionierung am Markt zu analysieren. Nicht selten sind Unternehmen beispielsweise überzeugt, mit Produktpreisen im mittleren Preissegment zu liegen und ein breites Sortiment anzubieten. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse bei der Preise und Produktsortimente der Wettbewerber untersucht werden, zeigt jedoch ggf. das Gegenteil. Die Ergebnisse der Wettbewerbsanalyse können dann genutzt werden, um die Außendarstellung und die Unternehmensziele dementsprechend an das reale Bild anzupassen.
Along with understanding how your potential customers are searching for your company and/or product online, you also need to decide what part of the sales process you want to target. Are you looking to start a prospecting campaign that attracts users at the very beginning of the process, and then convert them later via email marketing or retargeting? Or do you want your website to be shown in front of in-market searchers who are looking to buy right away?
It's not always about getting visitors to your site, but about getting the right kind of visitors. The usefulness of this intelligence cannot be overstated; with keyword research you can predict shifts in demand, respond to changing market conditions, and produce the products, services, and content that web searchers are actively seeking. In the history of marketing, there has never been such a low barrier to entry in understanding the motivations of consumers in virtually any niche.
Vielleicht fragt ihr euch, warum Unternehmen andere Firmen auf dem Markt analysieren sollten, auch wenn sie eigentlich nichts mit ihnen direkt zu tun haben. Gemäß der Weisheit “Alles Fließt“ (lat. Panta Rhei) oder “Die einzige Konstante ist die Veränderung“ sollten sie stets nicht nur die Veränderungen im Markt, sondern auch die Konkurrenten im Auge behalten. Mithilfe von Wettbewerbsanalysen überprüfen Unternehmen alle wichtigen Faktoren, die auf den Zielmarkt Einfluss haben. So können Führungskräfte die Strategien der Konkurrenten besser verstehen und im günstigsten Fall sogar vorhersehen– wenn beispielsweise Veränderungen am Markt auftreten. Dann können Unternehmen schlussendlich folgern, was sie selbst besser machen oder verändern sollten.

Doch die Wettbewerbsanalyse ist aufwendig. Sie besteht im ersten Schritt darin, Informationen über Konkurrenten zu sammeln, die bereits in Ihrem Markt aktiv sind – oder das in Zukunft sein könnten. In diesem Handbuch-Kapitel erfahren Sie, wie Sie bei der aufwendigen Informationsrecherche zielgerichtet vorgehen, welche Informationen Sie benötigen und wie Sie diese richtig erfassen. Nutzen Sie dazu Vorlagen wie Informationen über Wettbewerber zusammenstellen oder Informationen zu Wettbewerbern im Dashboard.

It is easy to get lost in the details of bids and keywords with your PPC account but have you asked yourself recently what are you really trying to achieve? It may seem like a silly question but think about it. If your response is just X number clicks or X cost per lead, then you have some thinking to do. Taking a step back to outline your audience and goals can do wonders for your PPC account.

Furthermore, 70% of consumers are willing to share their location information if they believe they are getting something of value in return like coupons or loyalty points, according to LSA’s Local Mobile Search Study.  This dynamically moving consumer base is only going to be more receptive to search results and ads that are specific to their location.
Impacts click-through rate. When someone searches for your keyword, they’re not just going to find your video—they’re going to get a list of similar results. You want your title to be clear, descriptive, and most of all, engaging to win their attention and their click. If more people are clicking on your title than on others, it’s going to be a signal to YouTube that your video is a good match for this keyword.
Für den Sichtbarkeitsindex (SISTRIX) werden für ein großes Set an gebräuchlichen Keywords für ein Land die Top-100-Positionen analysiert. Anschließend wird auch hier nach Suchvolumen und Position gewichtet. So zahlt eine schlechte Position auf einem vielgesuchten Keyword stärker auf den Index ein als eine gute Position auf einem wenig gesuchten Keyword. Hier findest du, wie Sistrix seine eigene Sichtbarkeit definiert und wie du diese im Detail interpretierst.
The results that we’ve seen among early adopters of geo-targeted campaigns are encouraging, and as more people join the smartphone society, opportunities will increase for brands and retailers to target mobile-savvy consumers on the move with real-time, contextually relevant offers and promotions that can be instantly redeemed close by. We can only see the trend heading one way.
Naturally, we all want to be successful. We want to know that the money we are putting into paid search, social, and display—or the investment we are managing on behalf of our clients—is being utilized in the most efficient way. That’s why we love data, why we pore over ad reports, why we diligently test new bidding strategies and messaging, and work to communicate all of that to the higher-ups with whom we engage.
The other option is to follow up with page visitors outside of AdWords. To do this, you’ll want to create an opt-in page (like the templates above) that offers visitors something of value in exchange for their email address or other contact information.

It’s easy to get blindsided by our own opinion on “high-quality” content. You might be thinking you have an awesome idea that everyone wants to read about, but how do you know with absolute certainty that it’s really that great? And even if your hunch is spot on and you’ve discovered something truly worth sharing, how do you quantify its value? How do you find the right content marketing keywords?
The final and most important metric is conversion. Make sure that you set up your conversion goals within your analytics. That way you can see which keywords are not only driving traffic but out of that traffic what percentage is converting. That is how you can measure keyword success. If you’re not doing this, then it becomes more difficult to identify your highest performing keywords.

These days, organic SEO is all about creating the highest quality content that is actionable and informative around a specific topic. While your content will no doubt contain keywords referencing said topic in places like heading tags and body copy, search engines are well-versed at filling in gaps about content topics without needing to be bludgeoned by keywords. Keyword research can never—and should never—be used as a crutch for poor content quality. However, exercises like those described below, can play very important roles in helping you define and measure your content strategy as well as mapping your content topics to real users’ needs. Words matter. 

Update aus dem Mai 2018: Inzwischen hat Google die Erweiterung der Descriptions auf 300 Zeichen wieder zurückgenommen und ist laut eigenen Aussagen auf eine Länge zurückgegangen, die etwas länger ist als früher. Also ca. 160 Zeichen, aber am Enda hat Google hier noch eine Vorbehalt, der heisst ggf verändern wir auch die Länge, solange es für den Nutzer sinnvoll ist.

Finally, some strategies will drive both efficiency and growth within an account. For example, concluding an ad copy test based on CTR, conversion rate, or conversion per impression can increase revenue and improve ROI. However, these strategies typically show incremental long-term improvements, and are less likely to ramp revenue or improve ROAS in the short-term.
Bonus Trick: Try typing in your basic keyword phrase, followed by every letter of the alphabet, and making a list of those phrases. If your product or service is specific to locations, try typing in those locations to see what kind of search volume exists.

The key to getting the most successful results from your PPC (pay-per-click) campaigns is developing a strategy that utilizes the many powerful tools at your disposal with Google Adwords. While boosting your clicks and conversions may at first seem like some sort of magical alchemy, there are actually tons of tangible ways to help drive traffic and increase sales. Best of all, Google is constantly adding new tools and refining older ones that you can add to your arsenal.
