SEO and Exercise
Last night I was determined to make it to the gym first thing this morning. However, I overslept and then due to a massive lack of time (yes, I overslept by quite a bit!) I had to decide between writing my blog or exercising.
Hmm, tough choice… on one hand I could spend over an hour sweating from every single pore and working my muscles until they ached so badly that they would be useless for the rest of the day or I could sit down with a coffee and wait for my creative juices to flow. So here I am writing!
Why do you Exercise?
For all of you out there, like me, that don’t exercise for enjoyment but for the results that it will hopefully bring, do you get as frustrated as I do when those results seem to take forever?
SEO and Exercise
Well, it got me thinking that exercise is a lot like SEO!! Take a look below and let me know if you can think of any more similarities!
One off SEO is of little benefit.
Exercise: How I wish exercise could be done just once in order to achieve those sought after results. Toned and fit after one gym session… if only! I guess we all know that’s not going to happen though don’t we?!
SEO: In the same way, one off SEO will achieve very little and won’t give you the top results that you need for your website.
Short term SEO has short term effects
Exercise: A short term exercise programme will boost your fitness levels and begin to tone your wobbly bits, however, these effects will soon disappear when the exercise programme stops. Fitness levels will decrease and those pesky wobbly bits will begin to wobble more unless exercise is continued.
SEO: If SEO is done for a short time only, this too will have short term effects. You might begin to see your website rank well in the search engines for your chosen keywords leading to more visitors and you should also see your site’s bounce rate decrease but when you stop the SEO your site’s search engine ranking will soon decrease while your bounce rate increases again.
SEO isn’t about just one thing
Exercise: In order to tone up your entire body different muscles need to be worked in various ways meaning that different exercises need to be done, after all if you want toned arms it would be silly to spend all your time on the treadmill! And it’s not even all about the gym and exercise, in order to enhance your body further your diet must play an important role too.
SEO: In the same way, there are many different SEO factors that need consideration in order to achieve the best all round results for your website. It’s not enough to just optimise the code, focused content and good inbound links are also essential. And it’s not all just about SEO, social media networking is also an important aspect in obtaining optimum results for your website.
So there you go… SEO is just like exercise!!
If you want the top search engine results for your website, together with targeted visitors and maximum exposure for your brand then you will need to put ongoing effort into your SEO. If you need help, with the SEO give me a call or drop me a line and I can either give you great advice to help you do it yourself or I can optimise your site for you. Your ideal body however… that’s all down to you!!
