About UX and SEO

Improving user experience on your website will increase your quality score ranking.

What we know for sure: Poor UX hurts SEO

The misconception in online marketing is that SEO is all about keywords and backlinks. While true, search engine algorithms have also created a long list of other factors to consider when ranking your website and among those factors include important elements of user experience.

SEO is about User Experience. In order for search engines to rapidly crawl and index your site in the attempt to provide search users with a list of relevant ranked websites. They can assess whether or not visitors enjoy navigating effortlessly throughout your website, the amount of time on your pages, which links have been click on, and if they found what they were looking for. If the user returns to your site it is an indication that you have done a great job in combining SEO and UX design elements.

If a user does not return or leave your site without taking any action or even a high bounce rate, it will signal to search engines that your site is either poorly optimized or irrelevant to users. A user-centric website will solve a lot of the above issues while never losing focus on the importance of search engines.

What we know for sure is that UX and SEO have shared goals. That is to achieve better positioning.  Having a site that loads fast,  good site architecture that allows users to find what they are looking for quickly also means that search engines will be able to index your pages with ease.

Website responsiveness for mobile/portable devices has also never been more important. Make your site friendly for both desktop and mobile searchers.

Target Your Right Customers

But first, we must know in detail who your users or potential users are. We will use the same focus on understanding what motivates, stops, or persuades your users to search for your site so we can give them the best possible user experience. Finding out what motivates users to visit your website is an important first step in improving your SEO and User experience.

Analyze & Increase Traffic and Conversions

After finding out what motivates users to your site next, the next step is to discover what makes them convert or where in the process of navigating the site are users abandoning their action. The three drivers we will focus on are: what drives users to your website, what barriers cause abandonment, and what elements persuades your users to act. This is an iterative process.
