SEO in Athens Video Introduction


Athens SEO is the process of driving local businesses, products, and services to the top rankings in Google, for their particular keyword phrases, for businesses located in the Athens, Georgia area. As a resident of Athens, Georgia for over 10 years, I’ve come to know a lot of local business owners in the Athens – Clarke County and Oconee County areas.  One conversation that comes up consistently business owners is the topic of SEO, or search engine optimization.

Any discussion with Athens, Georgia would be remiss to not at least include an image of the Arches at the entrance of The University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!!!).

A common question I hear from business owners in Athens and Oconee County regarding the ‘art of SEO is, “what magical SEO tactic will drive my website to the top rankings in Google?”  And to that question, I’ve always had the same (although sometimes disappointing) answer that there is no “magical SEO tactic” to drive your website into the top rankings in Google – the process is a very specific, purposeful, well planned out strategy where very little is left up to chance and where attention to detail becomes the cornerstone to success.

#1:  Keyword Research

Keywords define markets!  This is a phrase I’ve been using for nearly 10 years, even back in the day when I was building landing pages for real estate agents in Lakeland, Florida.  Just as it is with Google Adwords (SEM), keyword phrases allow you to reach a very targeted audience – the audience of prospects who are searching for your specific products and services.

#4:  Site Structure

The structure of your website is critical important to effective SEO in Athens. The local market is extremely competitive in Google which means in order for your website to be found at the top of Google, Google has to qualify your site as being the most authoritative for any given keyword phrase.

When looking at the internal structure of your website there are certain elements that are key to reaching the top of Google search. For example, your meta tag data (title, description, and keyword tags) must be optimized for your targeted keyword phrases. High quality Athens SEO type phrases are key to connecting to new customers in the Athens area who are searching for what your business offers.

Equally important is the internal linking structure throughout your website. Some businesses attribute authority in SEO to the number of inbound links your website possesses. However, this couldn’t be furthest from the truth. In fact, with a lot of the updates recently with Google Panda and Google Penguin algorithm updates, backlinks could be getting more toxic rather than more valuable to a site’s SEO strength. Building outbound links to highly authoritative sites such as BoingBoing, Wikipedia, CNN, Yahoo Directory, DMOZ, HuffingtonPost, DrudgeReport, and even highly authoritative .edu sites such as Harvard.

Now, let’s bring this Athens SEO strategy down to the ground level for right here in Athens – you can identify and target high authority level sites for linking out to that are from Athens, Georgia such as UGA.edu, Wikipedia’s Athens page, Athens Clarke County Gov, Visit Athens, and Athens Library.
