Bullseye: Targeting the Right Keywords

Figuring Out What Your Audience is Searching For
You’ve been hearing about it for years… the letters “SEO” have been engrained in your marketing brain to the point that they are more prominent than your initials! But what’s the secret for figuring out the keywords that your audience is really after?

There isn’t a foolproof answer to that question, but there are some ways you can get closer to hitting the target each time. Let these helpful tips from Brafton guide your next keyword identification efforts:

  1. In-site Search: If you don’t already have one, consider putting a search field on your website. It is the easiest and most direct way to find out what your audience is seeking. It reflects direct engagement and can help you improve metrics beyond SEO; from conversions to overall site design improvements, in-site search can provide a lot of insights. When combined with Google Analytics, it’s tough to beat.
  2. Search Analytics: Take things back a step to before people land on your website. What search results pages is your website showing up on? How can you show up on more? Find out what people are searching for when they stumble across your content and other useful information such as, where they are, what device they’re on, and what type of search they are entering (i.e. Web or Images). Capitalize on keywords that are already hitting the mark or expand to include new searches that you may not have previously identified.
  3. AdWords Search Term Reports: If you want your paid ads to perform better, this report can help you get the most out of your efforts. You will be able to see search terms, clickthrough rates and other relevant data. Use it to figure out how your audience is using long-tail keywords and descriptions and how your conversion funnel can be more tailored. Broad match keywords generate the best results for this report.

Ever tried to read a contract prepared by a lawyer? Did you get frustrated at the legal jargon before you finished the first page? Think of that the next time you prepare website content that is full of your industry’s jargon or tech-speak. Whether you’re writing B2C or B2B content, you need to address the user to engage them with your brand. How can you avoid getting too complex without watering down your content?

When you sell to other businesses, you can’t rely on the same strategies as businesses that sell to consumers. Website content for B2B companies must engage multiple decision makers at various stages along the buyer’s journey. More importantly, your B2B content must present your company’s services in stronger light than your competition’s. So, while you may have a good idea about everything you want to say, it’s critical to find out what your audience wants to know and then ensure they find it on your website, first.

Imagine putting up a business sign and having the city come along and take it down. Not only that, but then they put up their own sign that advertises your business. Instead of being a Mexican restaurant, you’re now labeled as a Tex-Mex cantina. Think it can’t happen? Google is updating page titles that are displayed in search results. Your SEO content could be replaced with text that Google thinks is more relevant to the user. Here’s what to know and how to avoid getting your titles rewritten.

A purchase transaction may happen online or offline, but shopping is definitely a universally online phenomenon today. Every buyer uses the internet to get information when shopping. B2B buyers are no different, regardless of industry. Manufacturers can’t deny the power of content marketing, but many haven’t fully bought into investing in B2B content. Trade shows were expensive before the pandemic. As we come out of the pandemic, it’s unlikely that they’ll make a comeback to their former glory anytime soon. Print magazines and journals are not as relevant as they once were. Your team can’t reach out to every prospect in person. Content marketing can be an important element in your marketing strategy because it’s ready when your customer is.
