Examples of bad web design with seo services


On 01-06-2012 articles

There are so many companies out there selling SEO services who call themselves web designers. As if being able to rank for keywords all of a sudden makes you a web designer.  Anyone can throw up some html and have a website live but that doesn’t make them a web designer.  Now it is easy to fall victim of an SEO service provider who will want to design your website as well.  But there are plenty of good designers who know all about SEO, so why not find both?

Even though content is king, cramping nothing but text on your website isn’t a very good idea especially if you are trying to build a brand. You think coca cola got to where they are because they just bombarded people with information about how good coke is? NO! It is a visual, branding and reputation thing. Your website is no different. And even though it might be tempting to go with a company that has a good track record for landing you on the first page of Google, in the long run it isn’t worth a bad design.

Here is a website that heavily promotes SEO that offers web design services.

Now I count 3 graphic elements on the homepage(we aren’t counting the social media buttons). Two of the graphics are a logo, and picture of the website owner which are blurred out to protect the identity of the site. The third graphic? Google Adsense! Yup they have a big fat advertisement banner in the side bar that is pretty much the only graphical element on their website. So prime example of a web designer that is an SEO person that uses cramming as much text as possible into their website so they can rank for a keyword.  Wanna know how many times they repeat the word SEO on just one page? 51 times.  Trust me this isn’t what you want your website to look like.

      In my opinion, SEO is a great industry to be in right now. Businesses are becoming more Internet savvy which means budgets are moving online, and the result is industry growth. With growth comes competition, so if you’re new to the industry, expect jobs to be harder to come by than previously expected.In SEO industry is just starting to enter into a mainstream life phase. Which means it’s growing quickly, but traditional SEO is threatened by automation through technology, especially when it comes to smarter content management systems. Take wordpress for example, most on-page SEO can be accomplished through plug-ins without much manual intervention. There is also more and more of the US business going off-shore. There are a lot of smart people in India, China and other markets who can do your job at a faction of the cost.If you want to get into SEO, be aware that traditional SEO is all but dead, and the new world of SEO will look like the following:- SEO will more-so focus on authority building, not indexability issues- SEO will include social media understanding and management- SEO will also focus on in-site optimization, in-platform optimization (facebook, amazon, etc) and in-app store optimization- SEO will be about providing search engines with optimized feeds, as opposed to them crawling- SEO will extend to other digital assets videos, pdfs, images, audio Here’s the big one:- SEO will move away from tactical execution to QB’ing the activities of other channels for an integrated approach.In conclusion: SEO is hot right now, but it’s evolving quickly. It’s a great field to get into, but pay attention to where it’s going to see if that’s really what you want to be doing in the next 3-5 years.
