    As you review the SEO analysis and associated suggestions to improve placement, you may start to notice that many technical SEO issues that can help you get to the first page, seem to be in relation to “Google” specifically. 

    If you are in the roughly 25 million people that use other search engines, this may seem off? The reality is that, as of December 2020, according to StatCounter.Com the rest of the over 91% of the world search on “Google”.

    Don't sacrifice search traffic

    So unfortunately if you want to see yourself on top of your favorite search platform, that isn’t Google, you should understand that you will be sacrificing over 91% of the total search traffic if you engineer a strategy focused on a different search platform. Google rankings are so important to search.

    Search Engine Market Share Worldwide – December 2020 (StatCounter.Com)

    • Google- 91.38%
    • Bing- 2.69%
    • Yahoo!- 1.46%
    • Baidu- 1.36%
    • YANDEX- 1%
    • DuckDuckGo- 0.6%

    SEO Strategy

    The first step to improving your placement is to use an SEO checker or run an SEO audit, once you have the data about what’s affecting your rankings, you need to analyze the results, and put together a comprehensive plan based on strategy.

    As you start to strategize or work with a company that will be strategizing and working on your website’s SEO, understanding the goal of your strategy is imperative.

    Goals that dictate SEO strategy after a site audit would be:

    • Keyword Research
    • To rank as fast as possible under as many targeted keywords as possible
    • Get one specific term number one placement
    • Target specific SERP result listings for page one placement
    • Outrank certain competitors under certain keywords online
    • Improve search placement that seems to have matured
    • Add longtail keywords to a site that is already dominating for voice search

    A strategy that focuses on results

    Using the SEO checker to achieve these goals is a start, and once you analyze the results, you will engineer a strategy that focuses on your results.

    For example, let’s say your goal is “to rank as fast as possible under as many targeted keywords as possible“, you would first want to see the technical SEO audit and fix technical SEO errors, identify pages that are doing well, but can easily be improved to get on page one.

    The difference between page 1 and page 2 of the SERPS

    Sometimes making a few changes can be the difference between, being on page one, or page two. The effort to achieve the results is minimal but the difference in your website’s traffic can be huge, just by improving a few spots in the search results (going from page 2 to page 1). 

    Don’t forget to look in Google Search Console for performance and site speed including web core vitals, and Google Analytics to see time on site, bounce rates, and more.

    The ultimate success of achieving your SEO goal lies in aligning your goal with a strategy to achieve that goal.
