5 Tips For Creating SEO That Works

You probably already know what SEO is, and how this can be beneficial in your own business. However, do you know how to make SEO work? Creating a very effective tactic is where many questions and doubts come into. So, make use of these 5 tips for you to build SEO plans that will deliver great results.

  1. Determine the Target Audience

SEO has been designed to position the websites of businesses to their prospects or target audience that are seeking services or products. One of the most important things you should consider when you are building or creating an effective SEO campaign is to determine your audience. Aside from that, you also need to determine where they are located, and what are their ages. These things can all help you to find success in the next steps that you are going to take.

  1. Determine Your Keywords

When you have already identified your target audience, the next thing that you need to do is to identify your keywords. Search Engine Optimization can help you a lot when it comes to attracting your ideal clients or customers. Say, for instance, you are creating SEO campaigns for a dealership, and you want to remove pictures in your keywords lists, reducing individuals that are just searching for images or pictures of your dealership from clicking or seeing on your ad. A negative keyword is just as essential as the regular keywords you have. Make sure that you spend time building those as well.

  1. Focus on Building Quality Links

Another important tip for effective and powerful SEO is to focus on building quality links. Links are the major signal which SEO uses in determining search results. There are so many various components of Search Engine Optimization, however, link building has often been the most significant signal. Creating quality and effective content can increase the potential that other sites would naturally link to your own website. There are lots of opportunities for link building which you can make use of that will truly allow you to generate the highest quality and relevant links. Guest blogging and infographic marketing are an example.

  1. Make sure that Your SEO On-page is Correct

This is another important thing that you should consider when you want to create effective SEO. Make sure to spend enough time on checking your SEO content. Also, make sure that all pages on your site are properly optimized. Typically, when you don’t spend more time doing this, the result of your work will not be as effective to your target audience. So, always keep this in mind before you focus on other things.

  1. Track Keywords and Analyze Information

In monitoring the position of the keywords, use keyword tracking tools for better results. Also, you would want to make use of Google Analytics in determining where the traffic to your site comes from or how long someone is staying on your site or where they are visiting from. There’s so much information that is available that you can use. Try and take advantage of it all.

iQuarius Media Stakes Out Its Place in the Voice Design Revolution

“It’s been a great experience to participate in a project that helps other developers to flourish their ideas and improve user’s experience using voice user interfaces and Alexa Voice Service. We are living exciting times with the current wave of technologies getting in the hands of developers to create great experiences.”  
~ Pablo Liz, Echosim.io Lead Developer

Ever since the Amazon Echo became a surprise hit product, mainstream audiences have been turned on to what those of us in tech have been excited about for a long time — truly useful, intelligent interaction with the technology in our midst. Advancements in IoT, wearables, and voice-controllable hardware like the Echo show how technology can be more than just things. They’re showing their potential to become an extension of us.

Voice control has been biggest tech disruption on this front. Alexa, the cloud-based voice assistant that powers Amazon Echo, is the underpinning for the growing world of voice-enabled products and services. Since spring of 2016, iQuarius Media has become a prominent part of the developer-focused ecosystem that Amazon has built around Alexa with our EchoSim.io project.

EchoSim by iQuarius Media 

EchoSim, the Echo Simulator, was inspired by UK-based developer Sam Machin’s AlexaWeb project and developed for Amazon by iQuarius Media. The simulator lives on the web at EchoSim.io, offering hardware-independent access to the Alexa Voice Service (AVS). The site has become an active hub for developers as well as the Alexa-curious from around the world, whether or not they have access to an Echo/Dot/Tap or other Alexa-enabled hardware.

EchoSim.io supports Amazon’s mission to get as many developers as possible into the world of voice design. It offers virtual access to an Echo with only a web browser and Amazon login credentials. With EchoSim, developers have tested their custom Alexa functions called skills; hackathons have demo’d hundreds of participant projects without needing a physical Echo; and corporate boardrooms have been able to sell the idea of voice control to stakeholders who may not otherwise have understood its value.

Of course, it’s also fun to tinker with. It explains the many thousands of users who drop by EchoSim.io regularly to try commands out. User numbers have only ballooned since the announcement in September 2016 that Alexa would support UK English and German.

Press Coverage and Growth of EchoSim

From our vantage point, we have a unique view of the growing interest in Alexa. EchoSim’s popularity has grown in tandem. As more and more developers build skills, EchoSim has shown itself to be the most popular web-based Alexa testing tool that can mimic Echo’s visual feedback in addition to JSON responses. EchoSim has been featured at Amazon Developer, major tech blogs, and web magazines. Most recently, TechCrunch gave iQuarius a mention in their post about expanded language support in AVS.

EchoSim: Deployment, Documentation, Web Presence

EchoSim.io is built on original code based on open-source and third-party modules. Our goal was to create a flexible, scalable base to make it easier to expand features and continually enhance the app. Docker containers make new versions portable and help us maintain an active update/expansion schedule without interruptions in service. In the front-end, Bootstrap gave us a solid framework and Jinja2 templates helped keep code tidy. Server-side handling of audio and HTTP/2 calls ensure we can offer better support for different browsers and devices, such as optimized audio for mobile delivery. Currently implemented Python libraries have support for server pushes, giving us room to tweak visual representations of interactions as EchoSim responds to AVS cloud-generated directives.

Documentation, marketing, and responding to user feedback is part of iQuarius’s services for EchoSim, all done in collaboration with Alexa developer marketing teams.
