Keywords and SEO For IBO Press Releases - Training
It's important to realize that IBOtoolbox is already "search engine optimized" for you. This is actually good news, especially knowing that the experts (IBO Development Team) are taking care of all of this for you. One of the best features of IBOtoolbox is that everything you do gets indexed in the search engines - your PRs, videos, wall posts, comments all get indexed. With the latest changes by the IBO Development Team, keywords and tags are now visible to users and search engines in the PR and video listing areas.

This training was prompted this past week by a member that submitted a ticket at the Helpdesk raising the question that when publishing a PR, it was cutting off her list of keywords. This is not the first time this question has came up. My response which is guided by the "experts" (IBO Dev team) was that there were too many of them, the search engines only look at the first few, the others are ignored. The member responded stating that this would be a good training topic and that she saw other use many keywords and thought it would be good to follow their lead.

That being said, I too see many times members posting a long list of keywords for their PRs or videos. This is known as "keyword stuffing". According to Google's guidelines keyword stuffing refers to the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site's ranking in Google search results. Often these keywords appear in a list or group, or out of context (not as natural prose). Furthermore, Webopedia.com states search engines often penalize a site if the engine discovers keyword stuffing, as this practice is considered poor netiquette, and some search engines will even ban the offending pages from their search results.

Is this a practice that you want to follow?

Search engine optimization is a subject that many don't know much about or can keep up with the ever changing rules of the search engines. So when you are writing your press releases, posting videos to your profile, use 3 or 4 relevant keywords or phrases. Let the "experts" do what they do best and don't try and over-think SEO. You do what you do best and market your business on the best platform on the Internet - IBOtoolbox!

 
IBOtoolbox Tip of the Week!
Stop selling! IBOtoolbox is a "social network". Members who are continually trying to spam their associates or sell the other associates with their business opportunity will not see as much success as those that build a true business relationship. We all should be engaging and interacting with our associates first and foremost, business will follow once those relationships are formed! Press releases, videos, banner and listing ads as well as posting on the wall is the best way to get the word out about your business!

Banners, Graphics, and More...
One of the most important pieces of online marketing is advertising. On the Internet, that is most effectively done with targeted and postioned Banner Graphics.

IBOtoolbox does the targeting/positioning for you, but what do your ads look like? Does it stand out, grab attention, demand a click.... or does it simply blend in with everything else?

If your banner graphics are poor in quality, are copied from others, are the wrong size, or are just plain ugly... They will not work! By cutting corners on quality, your conversions and sales will be minimal if any. Whether you are new to Internet marketing or you're a veteran marketer - poor quality graphics is one thing that will surely hinder your success. First impressions count and if someone is seeing a banner with poor quality graphics, it will never get clicked and there will be no sale for you! People respond better to quality graphics - banners are no different!

IBObanners is a great resource available to you where you get access to ready made banners for different business opportunities or templates that you can customize for your business with text, graphics, etc! IBObanners will host all of your banners, plus give you access to a banner maker where you can create your own banners!

Hi Kris, thanks for going over keyword stuffing again. It is tempting to put as many as possible thinking you're boosting your readers. But unfortunately it's just the opposite. Also it's a great reminder that we're here to help each other not to sell to each other.

Keywords and SEO are important to get indexed and ranked in the search engines to generate traffic. Your explanation about keyword stuffing is on point, it's not a good thing to do because it will hurt you. Excellence from you always Kris. ~Terri Pattio - MLM Coach/Mentor with a servant's heart/Twitter Strategist
