SEO: Effective Web Page Example

Example of an effective page in a website

What makes a page in a website effective?


A website is a collection of individual pages or web pages. Search engines like Google does not automatically index all pages of a website but might ignore some pages in a website because the pages do not meet Google’s quality guidelines. If for example the pages contains duplicate content that already appears on another website or even on the website itself.

We took an advertisement in a local newspaper and created the following pages which we believe would be an effective page:

Why do we believe the about us page is effective?

  • Original and unique content not copied from another website
  • We include the right words, words we would like to be found for
  • We even included words which describe which we are not because it will attract people from the relevant target market
  • We mention the area of the business
  • We start with the most important words (keywords) and simply answer (what, where, when, how) and work our way down to less important information.
  • We considered what a potential client (a user of Google’s website) would type in the search bar
  • We have used synonyms in a natural way
  • The about us text is not spamming of nature. It is not just a bunch of keywords stuffed in order to fool search engines
  • The about us page includes effective calls to action (Phone for more information / Register )

The business owner, a qualified teacher, should be in the ideal position to further develop the individual pages of the website seeing she has specialist knowledge.

A great way to include more synonyms is to use Google’s Keyword Planner. This tool also gives and idea on monthly global searches for certain keywords and phrases.
