Web Analytics: A great Place to Start

A Good Industrial Marketing and SEO program starts with Website Analytics to:

  •  Monitor your bounce rate (Industrial Engineers that leave immediately by hitting the back button)

  • Explain which search engines work for you and which ones do not.

  • Which keywords and phrases work and inherently which ones need work.

  • Who links to you?

  • What your conversion rate and ROI is.

  • Where your audience is geographically.

  • And much more...

Industrial Website Design

You may have a great Industrial SEO strategy, where your industrial company or product is placed on page 1 of Google, Yahoo! and MSN. The problem is that if your site does not expound value to the visitor then most likely your site will still drive traffic to your competitors. Consider:

  • Your site is poorly designed.

  • Is hard to navigate.

  • Is 90's looking

  • Who links to you?

  • Brochure ware.

  • Poor usability.

Industrial Web Catalogs

Industrial Business Marketing focuses on site design and navigation as well as adding sticky items like industrial interactive catalogs, ecatalog product wizards that walk the end user step-by-step through the process of finding and applying your industrial products. An industrial interactive e-catalog will help your end users discover your products. However, you should remember that:

  • An interactive web catalog should never return the dreaded "0 products found" (this all to common in industrial web catalogs)

  • An industrial catalog must include dimensional data, performance data, design guidelines, and product characteristics within its search.

  • Online Catalog Software can be complex and difficult for search engine spiders to index.

  • Most Industrial Web Catalogs should have CAD download data.

  • Pricing is essential to industrial buyers

  • No Value means No Immediate Sales Lead which Means No Sale.

Industrial Search Firms

Finally, when it comes to Search Engine Optimization, pick an SEO firm that can prove their work, and show how they have positioned other Industrial Manufacturers and Industrial Distributors in the organic natural portion of the Search engines. Ask what the final outcome was in terms of revenue generation, cost savings, and Return on Investment. And most importantly get references.

Additionally, you should check that Search firms show up in the search engines themselves; if they can position their own Industrial SEO serrvice then they can probably position your Industrial Product or Company. Do not just search with terms like "SEO Company" or "SEO firm", be more specific and use terms like industrial sales leads or if your need to write an news article for your new product, try industrial press release or be more detailed with phrases like seo industrial or seo project plan. A good Industrial Search Engine consultant has probably not positioned Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream or Victoria's Secret; remember you have a product that is intended for industrial B2B and not B2C.

One must also note that each term above includes this website and to further clarify the issue of good industrial positioning each of those phases (plus many more) have more than one million results in the SERPs, (Search Engine Results Pages)
