What Pages Should a Website Have?

Building a professional website from scratch has never been easier for business owners. And while that’s certainly a good thing, it’s also potentially problematic. After all, if you don’t have a background in web design you may not know exactly how to form a website that functions the way you want it.

By contrast, fewer professionals know and use the lesser-publicized page authority score. What is page authority? In brief, it’s a measurement of an individual page’s capacity to rank on search engines.

Domain Age: Does it Matter in SEO Rankings?

Google works in mysterious ways. The search-engine giant’s algorithm for determining page rankings has long been the subject of debate, conjecture, and analysis among professionals with an interest in digital marketing. After all, figuring out what makes one website appear on a search page above another is an extremely valuable bit of knowledge. The truth is though, there is no single determining factor in regard to page rankings. Indeed, Google itself has announced that it uses over 200 factors to rank websites. Still, that hasn’t stopped progressive business owners from looking for any edge they can get when it comes to search-engine optimization. One such purported “edge” is domain age. For some years now, people have debated about the importance of domain age in SEO rankings. However, just how critical domain age is remains a hot topic for many digital marketers. Today, we’ll look to dispel some of the myths around domain age and offer as much clarity as possible on the subject.

Why Does Landing Page SEO Matter?

If you asked most business owners about the role of landing pages, odds they would class them as an important –– if not the most important –– component of the marketing/sales process. Indeed, landing pages traditionally have bridged the gap between the initial interest that marketing and advertising content generates, and the ultimate goal of a sales conversion through a form fill. In other words, consumers usually encounter landing pages after reading a blog post or ad, but before they decide to do business with a company. However, landing pages can offer progressive businesses more than a pivot point between marketing and sales efforts. Indeed, a growing trend in digital marketing has seen the landing page become a destination in and of itself, instead of merely functioning as a way station between marketing content and a sales pitch. Still, why does landing page SEO matter? And is this new way of thinking about landing pages the right way to go for your business?
