Last month, Coulter Web Pros' President, Kelly Coulter, was recognized with a Prezi Video award for her Prezi video "SEO Tip#5: Know Your Keywords." The video explains how to build a keyword list for your website and how to use these words to your site to maximize SEO. The video was commended for its "balance of human connection and visuals."
Viewers like to have information laid out so they can learn it fast. The best part of Coulter’s video is you feel like an expert on keywords by the end of the four minute video. Keywords, when used correctly, can increase traffic to your website and help you get the most out of your website.
SEO Tip #5 is one episode in a series of short, comprehensive videos about search engine optimization tips by Coulter. The videos are a simple guide to the not so simple world of SEO.
The rest of the SEO Tips Series can be found on the Coulter Web Pros website under blogs.

Use Visible and Behind-The-Scenes content For SEO
SOME PAGE BUILDING BEST PRACTICESSEO Meta information (Unseen by visitors) - use the SEO section in your website editor to tell Google and potential visitors what your page contains. Title tags and description are especially important because they show in the Google search results page.
How to leverage the assets you started with to get your First Customers
When I started my business in 2014, I did it on a bootstrap budget. I mean I had not saved up a dime, didn't borrow from my retirement, and didn't take out a home equity line or a small business loan. I simply walked in to my boss' office and said "I don't know what I will be doing in two weeks, but I know it won't be this." And right then and there I committed to eating what I could kill.
Hindsight is always 20/20. Of course there are things I would change about my first few years in business. But, I've never regretted the decision to go into business for myself.
Use search Landing Pages to Attract Free Traffic
Typically landing pages are typically created to accommodate traffic from a paid ad with the intent of eliciting a specific response from the visitor.
But landing pages can also attract visits from organic searches. Using landing pages to attract organic search traffic can be a great way to rise above competitors for specific terms. By narrowing the SEO focus of a page you tell search engines exactly what that page is about. Resulting in a higher page rank vs. other pages that may spread their focus a little thinner. I like to use blog posts to serve this purpose, but not all sites have a blog. So when a site doesn't have a blog we use landing pages (I like to call them search landing pages.)
For example, let's say you are a grocery store. You may have pages on your website dedicated to bakery, produce, and meats. Now let's say that there are a lot of searches in your local area for Prime Rib around Christmas. You may want to create a landing page that is focused on making Prime Rib for Christmas. It could talk about traditions, recipes, specifics about the cut of meat. That page does not have to be included in the primary navigation, but it will do better in searches for Prime Rib than your meats page will.
If you combine search engine optimized content with calls to action you create a landing page that gets your store a bigger cut (see what I did there!?) of the Prime Rib sales.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CONTROLLING YOUR MINDSET FOR A BETTER WORK AND HOME LIFE
Steve Jobs knew he wanted to make the iPhone. He knew what it should look like, what size it should be, and what it should do long before the first prototype was produced. He had designers creating mock ups out of wooden blocks so he could feel it in his hand long before the engineers had any clue as to how they would fit the necessary parts into something that small. He notoriously drove his engineers crazy with his insistence that it could be done, even when they told him it was impossible.
