The Friday Night Conversation

Welcome to the first post of many blog posts called

“The Friday Night Conversation”

To start off I want to paint a picture of the Friday night conversation. I will be writing about ideas to the whacky out of the world ideas.

So let’s get started…

Friday night I went with the wife to a comedy show in Sheffield. We enjoyed the comedians and had a little drink. During the breaks I got talking to a wonderful group of people who were enjoying themselves.

One person stud out a lovely lady which I did not catch her name but the conversation has stuck with me.

The slightly drunk lady asked if I would look at building her website to help push a crazy idea for pet owners, to send their sadly passed away cremated pets into space so the owners could look up and think my little pippin is up there..

I know the logistics would is not possible but the idea I thought was sweet and the whole concept of being able to have this as an option in the future when we are running out of cemeteries and spaces within them is a great idea.

Your thinking wow Chris you have lost it to write this article but come on we sent a Tesla into space..

What are your thoughts on this feel free to email at fridaynight@hyper1digital.co.uk

Go Social and be first not last !

Your website is the key to the success to your business and online rankings ?

WRONG !!

The key to the success of your business online and the online rankings are determined on how interactive and credible you are with the followers. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube are the places you need to aim as they are all ranked by Google Search. This helps you get known and also increase your ranking on Google.  social presence

So why do we need to be social ? Because you want to be first not last in your industry, the company people go to but to achieve this you need to interact with your audience and improve reach socially.

Why do we need YouTube ? YouTube is the second biggest search engine in the world which is also owned by Google. If your not on YouTube you should be. Your videos create a face and presence for your business,.

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ – These social platforms are the ability to interact with the audience on a personal level by leaving replies, messages which create back links to your website (IF YOU POST CORRECTLY)..

If you want to be first not last, YOU need to get socially inclined by post on a regular basis and getting that face of the company on YouTube.

Content is the key to attract an online audience. You know your company so you know the content. Get out of the shadow’s of obscurity and go into the light of social presence.

Are you a social smart phone user?

Are you social smart and is your phone a smart phone ?

I remember getting my first mobile phone, I remember it having a single line LCD display and a very long antenna that you pulled out to make a call. This phone had no way of being a useful social media tool to me but now my phone is the most powerful tool I have.

In the modern day of technology the smart phone is the only tool you will have with you most of your day and night. This tool is powerful the ultimate weapon in your social arsenal. This tool has many many apps I call them business bullets, that you fire to get hits.

So why is the smart phone the ultimate weapon in business ?

Well I am glad you asked because I have many answers for you. Lets start with how we use our phones in the modern day. We take photos, we tweet and Facebook statuses, we even do live streaming to show our friends the wonderful night we are having normally drunk but we still do it.

Recently I attended a business networking event and my business cards did not turn up in time. Many people were handing out their cards to me and asking where were my business cards. To my response I said I was running an experiment not to use business cards for one whole networking event.

I did not tell them it wasn't intentional but I soon learnt that emailing that potential client and adding them straight on my social media they got more than a bit of card with my logo they got my attention, the interaction all clients want with their new provider.

Instantly after adding them on Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter their phones started to alert them that Hyper 1 Digital had liked their pages, their tweets and added them as friends.

This made me realise that the ultimate tool is my smart phone because if your phone is not smart you are working like a dummy on a dummy phone (applause).

Lets take twitter for example, most of us have over 100 followers on there (if you dont get some). You take out your phone take a photo of something important to your day and within seconds you tweet it to over 100 potential clients. You have also proven that you and your business are there to interact and show the main key to my success is personality and the personal touch.

I would like to challenge you all to take out your phones while reading this article and tweet a status or photo to @hyper110 and see how long it takes. BTW did I mention when you tweet to a person or group their followers will also get a glimpse of your awesome tweet.

In House SEO

Our in house SEO team has been working hard on our own website this week and we are now on the 1st page of google for “Remote IT Support Barnsley” ,”Remote IT Support Doncaster” and “Remote IT Support Leeds”

10 Quick Tips About Seo

SEO and Your Website - 10 Quick Tips 

Recently Hyper 1 Digital has been working with numerous clients building up their online presence and training them how to utilise their WordPress website to increase their SEO ranking. After doing this training I decided to write a little post with 10 tips you can do to help your SEO ranking. 

 

1. Optimize Your Site / Page Around One Keyword or Topic

Your business may offer many services or products but your keywords need to be simple and aimed at the type of business, service or product range you have to offer. This will allow Google to pick up and clearly index your website to the correct keyword. Recently we have been working on our own keywords by utilising one of the main focuses of our business which we are now ranked on the 1st page of Google for "Remote IT Support Barnsley" and "Remote IT Support Doncaster". 

2. Optimize Page Titles

A title tag is used by search engines to display a page in search results and can also be found at the top of your browser. Title tags tell search engines and searchers what the page is about. Since Google will only display between 50-60 characters in the title tag, you should keep title tags under 55 characters and try to drive people to click with compelling copy. You should also put keywords or topics towards the front of the title.

3. Utilize Proper Heading Tags

Heading tags should clearly tell the reader and search engines about the page’s topic. A search engine is able to identify the heading when it is tagged by bracketing text in <H1> within the page’s HTML (Note: If you have a CMS or COS like HubSpot or WordPress, this is usually coded in the background). Heading tags help tell a search engine the level of importance of the content by also using <H2> and <H3> tags. You can check your site’s current heading tags by viewing in HTML view.

In addition to what you should do with heading tags , you should also avoid a few things including:

  • Avoid using generic terms like “Home” or “Products”

  • Don’t put important information that would likely be your <H1> as an image.

4. Optimize Image Alt Text

While you should not hide your heading tag in an image, you should still give search engines more opportunities to link to your website by adding keywords in the image alt text and file name.

5. Grow Natural Links

Google continues to use natural, quality inbound links as a main ranking factor. In 2016, you should closely monitor inbound links to ensure that they are constantly growing and that the inbound links come from quality websites.

6. Increase Site Speed

Since 2011, Google has made it apparent that site speed matter in search rankings, and today, with a bigger emphasis on the user experience than ever before, site speed will continue to be a critical ranking factor. Users don’t like to wait, and we are becoming more and more accustomed to the fast load times, which means your site will be left in the dust when a user must wait. There are a few important things you can do to speed up site speed:

  • Test site speed using Google or a nice little tool we use called pingdom

  • Ensure your web server can handle you size of your company and website needs. Overloaded web servers can slow down load times.

  • You may also find that one of the following culprits is slowing down times:

    • Embedded videos or media

    • Using a lot of images

    • Images that are not compressed to minimize pixels before uploading - We use tinypng.com or WPSmush if it is a WordPress based website.

    • Clunky coding

    • Using a lot of plugins

If you suspect any of the above are causing slow load times, you can find experts to help clean up your site or minimize the use of each.

7. HTTP vs. HTTPS: Why They Matter

With a big push to make the web world more secure, Google has began emphasizing the importance of utilizing HTTPS. While many websites have traditionally ran on a Hyper Text Transfer Protocal (HTTP), a Hyper Transfor Protocal Secure (HTTPS) ensures that a website is encrypted and cannot be hacked. With Google beginning to test the waters in using HTTPS as a ranking factor, it will be important to secure your website with HTTPS in 2016.

8. Mobile Search Implications

With nearly 40% of organic traffic coming from mobile devices in 2014, it should come as no surprise that mobile-friendly websites will rank better with Google. To ensure you are mobile optimized, you should be avoiding common mistakes described by Google including faulty redirects, mobile-only 404s, blocked media, and slow mobile load times.

9. Meta description tag

Meta Descriptions are the little bit of information under the title when you search google. This information is a brief sales pitch to get those visitors through the digital door. We recommend that you utilise your meta descriptions to match each page of your website. Include your keywords and always make it user friendly.

10. Social Media is Key !

Social Media is the key to increase your page views and increase your website ranking. Social media marketing is about interacting with your potential customers and exisiting customers. On every post we ALWAYS put a back link to our website if it is through Facebook, Twitter, Linked and Google+.

Although it may feel like Google is trying to make our jobs as inbound marketers more difficult, they ultimately want to provide the best user experience, which should be the goal of your website as well. If you’d like to discover how you could better optimize your website in 2016, request a marketing assessment from Hyper 1 Digital today.
