Your team is #1, but how does your website rank on search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo? Increase your eteamz site’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO) by making some easy changes to your site.
Quality and Content
Make sure your eteamz pages are content-rich and include many relevant key words in the content. The content should be original, valuable and unique and the key words should be those you want to rank for on searches. Don’t try to fake it with a list of keywords, though - search engines prefer “natural” content to “listed” content.
For better SEO, include content that is:
Original – update eteamz News pages with articles that summarize specific practices, players, games and team parties
Informative – include content such as local news related to your sport or team and original articles with tips related to your sport
Valuable - always stick with the general “theme” of your website (ex. baseball, sports, youth)
Unique – include your town’s name, your team’s name, local school names, local business names, sponsor names and field location names in various News articles
One of the most efficient practices of Search Engine Optimization is link building. Arrange for other, relevant websites (such as blogs, sponsor websites, or school websites) to link to your eteamz site.
Don’t forget to also add hyperlinks from your site. These links should point to sites that are interesting to your site members and relevant to your team/sport/league/association.
Meta data (including title tags and description) should accurately describe the contents of your website. If you have a custom domain with eteamz and would like us to update the title tag and/or meta description, please contact our support team with your request: http://www.eteamz.com/customersupport.cfm. Please include your custom domain, your eteamz site (www.eteamz.com/_______) and what you would like the title tag and description to be. If you don’t have a custom domain, visit your My Account/PLUS, Account section in your eteamz admin to purchase one for $14.95/year.
New sites (eteamz or otherwise) can sometimes take weeks to get indexed with the search engines. Give it a little time then watch your site move up the search ranks!
