Discover 8 Easy Steps To Get Your Event Planning Website To The Top Of Google

Do you have an event planning website or, maybe you’re in the process of designing one now?

It’s important to have an online presence so your clients can find you. I use my site to advertise in online directories, forward to potential clients and use as an advertising piece for people who were looking for an event planner in my city.

And it’s much harder to get clients when they can’t find your website in search engines like Google or Yahoo.

Trying to learn about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your event planning website can be overwhelming and seem like you have to learn a new language which can be frustrating (at least it was for me!). That language can be strange, and everyone seems to have conflicting opinions (and often bad advice) about what the most effective SEO techniques are.

But, SEO is critical if you want your website to come up in the search results when someone is searching for an event planner in your area.

Quite honestly, I don’t know much about SEO and how to finesse Google so my site and blog posts show up in search engines, but Sean, my SEO guy pictured here, certainly does. That’s why I hired him to be apart of my team and, even though I don’t know what he’s talking about sometimes ;-), he’s helped rank my site and is helping build my business.

My recommendation: If you’re not good at something or don’t like it, hire someone who is good at it and loves doing it! That goes for every aspect of what you’re doing.

    Event planning is not my area of expertise, but as a website builder, I can relate to the challenges that exist for any website. It just seems like such a daunting task to compete for search engine rankings and traffic, particularly, targeted traffic. My friend has had a hand in just about every aspect of corporate event planning and management and have pretty much done it all (short of carrying the hors d’ oeuvres tray).

    I guess these are all the little details you have got to pay attention to in order to Maximize your SEO efforts. Every little detail counts, especially if you are targeting a very specific audience and also when you have chosen to drill down on a few specific key words. This is necessary when you are targeting a local market such as a particular city or county. I even heard you should keyword your 505 Error page (the default page that the web server accesses when a link is dead or a page can’t be found).

  • Ronnie says:

    Sales leads and referrals are the life blood of every event-related business. I think this holds true for almost every industry, but the reality is that marketing any event service is not easy. New event projects launch every day behind the closed doors of board meetings, emails and phone conversations. The problem is, as a service provider, you rarely have access to these happenings. This means you are always reacting to inquiries instead of being part of the discussion.

    I suppose I could run some web page analyzer app to measure and recognize the keyword density of this page and pick out the key phrase, but just from giving it the eye test, I would guess that the key phrase, “keyword is the one that is optimized on this page. If not that, it would have to be “event planning. I also noticed that you placed emphasis (bold text) on “keyword. That is why that was my first guess.

    They say that content is king, Well, if in fact that is the case, be sure to have good, well – written and unique content that will focus on your primary keyword or keyword phrase. If content is king, then links are queen. Build a network of quality backlinks using your keyword phrase as the link. Remember, if there is no good, logical reason for that site to link to you, you don’t want the link.
