When developing a mobile site, focus on engaging content which is educating and entertaining through a positive experience by using key features which support each mobile environment.
Mobile SEO activities can negatively impact a user with a poor user experience resulting in high drop outs and loss of lead generation. A website’s bounce rates is deemed by Google as a negative effect for search engine index ranking. Google is placing an increasing level of attention to SEO for websites that are mobile friendly and/or rendered responsively, so now is the time to think mobile SEO.
A number of industries, particularly retail in Australia and around the world, have seen how not ‘thinking online’ can impact on long-term business decisions, by having a mobile site that performs in search engines will provide improved opportunities for new revenue streams.
SEO for mobile is different
Different Search Requirements
Search requirements differ on mobile than regular PC usage.
Because of the difference in nature and dimension of the device, mobile requires more functional task type features and content which is more personal and intuitive to the user.
Mobile Tailored Content
Due to smaller screen sizes on mobile devices and slower data download rates, it is common for the mobile friendly version of a company website content and design to be produced as a much lighter version.
Separate Keyword Strategy
Keyword selection used to optimize a PC compliant website may differ for mobile solutions. This is due to the usage pattern of mobile search differing dramatically to that on PC’s.
How does social media impact SEO?
On-going social media activities make a significant impact on SEO rankings. Relevance and authentic content make for better search engine rankings on matching keywords. Adding social media sharing buttons to a website is an easy method to enhance the likelihood of users sharing content. Whenever the content is shared, it gains inbound links to your website SEO score. Google is pushing for more businesses to search once logged-in with their profile accounts and Google+ profiles. Social media SEO goes deeper than just liking, shares and tweets, the sharing on these social networks are forming social graphs and viral sharing mind maps which are altering the impact on generic rankings. Google use tweeted links and Re-tweets as a signal in the Google organic and news rankings just like normal website content. Google also use it to enhance the news universal by marking how many people shared an article. Google treat links shared on Facebook fan pages exactly the same as tweeted links. A larger social reach is a competitive advantage in SEO. Businesses should no longer ignore their social media connections. Facebook connections, Twitter followers, LinkedIn account size and an engagement across these platforms can no longer be treated as social metrics, they’re KPIs hidden within your SEO strategy, so go forth and connect!

Setting up AdWords
When setting up Google Adwords it is common to set up a budget. You can, for instance, set a daily budget of five dollars and a maximum cost of ten cents for each click on your ad. You can use Keyword Planner to find new keyword and ad group ideas, get performance estimates for them to find the bid and budget that are right for you, and then add them to your campaigns. “Keyword Planner doesn’t let you specifically target mobile devices, like tablets and mobile phones. By default, it targets all devices, which is in line with recent changes made to AdWords campaigns. We’re working on a feature that’ll allow you to get traffic estimates by device type and set bid adjustments for mobile devices.” (Google 2014)
