The single most important aspect and preparation that is required for any online website promotion boils down to keyword research. If you do not put enough effort into obtaining and targeting the correct keywords and key phrases that are related to your website’s content, then much of your promotional efforts can be worthless.
The importance of keyword research cannot be underestimated and therefore should not be overlooked. The goal of your website as an online business is to be as profitable and popular as possible after all. Of course this is the same for any business whether online or off and in order to maximize profits, obtaining natural and free visitors is the key to your success. The ultimate way to achieve this is traffic gained via search engines natural results.
For example, if your online business sells flowers in San Francisco, then there would be certain keywords and key phrases that you would like to rank highly for (where you show up in search engine results after searching or those particular keywords). Some examples would be “flowers San Francisco”, “flower shop San Francisco” and “flower delivery san francisco”. Here the key phrases are targeted and relevant to the online flower shop business and are also relevant to the correct geographic location. There is obviously no point in trying to rank for flower shops in Los Angeles in this case!
Ideally any online business needs to determine at least ten quality keywords or key phrases that have relatively high search volumes and low competition for those keywords. This will help ensure that your website will receive a good level of organic traffic through search engines and will likely rank higher more easily as the competition is low. Finding keywords and key phrases in any niche can be difficult simply because of the high number of websites competing against each other.
As keyword research is the most vital aspect in the overall success of a website through the search engine ranking positions (SERP’s), making use of the wide variety of keyword research tools found online is highly recommended. Resources such as Google Adwords Keyword Tool and Wordtracker can be very useful in finding keywords and key phrases that relate completely with your business and that are of value to target. Information such as monthly local and global traffic estimates, cost per click advertising pricing and monthly popularity trends can be discovered this way and all of this information is needed in order to get maximum exposure to your website through search engines. Though keyword research is a relatively easy process it is very time consuming and ensuring that you target the optimum keywords can be the difference between success and failure online.

It’s possible that you have heard of the term ‘link building’ before which relates to your website’s popularity and importance in the eyes of search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Links, or backlinks are simply the hyperlinks that connect websites together as clickable text. You see them thousands of times whenever you surf the web and without them the Internet would be a very different place. So why are they so important to your own website?
First, backlinks are a means for people/traffic to find your website and therefore products, services or information. The more backlinks you have visible on other websites, the easier it will be for others to find your website – simple.
However there is a second benefit as to why having a high number of backlinks is beneficial to you. Search engines crawl trillions of websites continuously checking content and links to help them determine where websites should rank in their search engine results for various keywords and key phrases. The more backlinks a website has, the more important it could be considered as many people are linking to it. Let’s look at a simple example:
Dog training website 2 = 544 backlinks
Taking every other factor out of the equation, which of the above websites is likely to rank higher in search engine results for the keywords ‘dog training’? Yes, dog training website number 2. Google, Yahoo and Bing for example will notice the number of backlinks to each website and in their eyes will determine that the second website is more popular as more third party websites have linked to it. This is an indication that the website has good content and is valuable to the search engine users. It will therefore rank higher and get more traffic than the first website. This doesn’t necessarily mean the second website does have better dog training content than the first website; it simply seems that they have done a better job of getting their message out to others on the internet and provided their links are from sites that are from sites that are relevant to their industry, they will be more popular to search engines.
Therefore, obtaining a solid number of relevant backlinks to your website is very important. In fact it is considered the single most important aspect of search engine optimization and it is essential rather than important.
There are hundreds of ways to get backlinks to your website and some methods include article marketing, video marketing, directory submissions and Web 2.0 methods. However, link building can also involve a steep learning curve and it does require a serious time investment, especially if you are new to website promotion. It is important to obtain a balance of quality and quantity of backlinks to ensure maximum returns from your link building strategy.
