seo-keywords-accommodation-thumbThe first step to successfully promoting your web site to the search engines is to create a list of keywords and phrases to target. Inevitably a lot of the claims revolve around the SEO companies' choice of keywords/phrases and they are usually quite obscure! If you choose the wrong keywords, all your efforts will be in vain! For example, if your site appears at the top of the search results for a keyword that few people actually search for, then what good is that top ranking?

However, if you choose keywords that are too competitive, you may find it very difficult and time-consuming to achieve a top ranking. Therefore, it's important you target the most popular but least competitive keywords you can find. This is called the Keyword Effectiveness Index (KEI).

Lastly, the keywords you choose must be highly relevant to the products and services that your business offers. So, put yourself in the shoes of your prospective customer. Ask yourself what they would type into a search engine to locate what you have to offer. Sound like a massive task of 'hit and miss' guessing? Don't worry, 3cellhosting Keywords Report will help you brainstorm ideas and create a great list of keywords. The great thing about these reports is that they are based on 350 million search entries that were actually entered into the top 16 search engines, including Google. One great advantage is that we even show you how often the words are likely to be entered, and that includes the words that were mis-spelt.

Consider the hourly cost of your time to try and ascertain the best keywords for your site and then compare that to our comprehensive report, which costs just £35. We think you will agree that our report is value for money.

The report will include the following...

  • Upto 300 Lateral Search and Related Terms
  • Upto 500 Keywords per Search
  • Upto 5,000 Keywords in your report
  • Mis-spellings
  • 16 Search Engines (includes Google)
All results for Keyword Searches will be emailed to customers, enabling simple transfer of keywords to your web site.

The example of our Keyword Report* based on a single keyword - accommodation.

If we look at the first keyword shown it is "vermont bolton valley ski area accomodation" and shows a KEI rating of 23104. The higher the rating, the better the keyword as it has less competition. The next column, Count, shows how many times the search term has been entered in the past 160 days. This is followed by 24hrs, which a calculation of predicted searches in 24 hours based on the previous column and when the searches were entered. The final column shows how many other websites are targeting that keyword.

In this instance it looks like there is a popular event happening in the area and people are looking for accommodation. The last column shows that there are no competitors according to Google and when we checked the search term in Google we got the following result...


This provides a fantastic opportunity for any business in the hospitality trade, hotels, B&B, hostels etc.

If you look at the other keywords you will notice that many people forget that 'accommodation' has two 'm's as well as two 'c's. This gives an opportunity to catch extra visitors as the correctly spelled keyword has 116 million wbe sites with that keyword, compared to the 12.5 million sites with the incorrectly spelt keyword. The mis-spelling is predicted to be entered 100 times per day, these are all potential customers.

* The report shown is a shortened version containing just 50 keyword results from Google

Search Engine Optimisation

Contrary to the many claims that exist about guaranteeing to get web sites ranked number one on Google, this is a task that nobody (other than Google) can guarantee.

There are some basic points that are essential to achieving and maintaining a good ranking with the search engines.

  • Effective and appropriate keywords
  • Relevant and meaningful content for that page
  • Correct use of HTML markup code
  • Incoming links from suitable sites

If you consider that the search engines are similar to a good recipe book you will start to understand the need for commitment to get good rankings. In a recipe book most of us will go to the index to find the correct page for the food we wish to cook. The index is often laid out to include common meal titles e.g. Irish Stew, Chicken Curry etc. To make the index more useful there will be entries based on ingredients e.g. Main heading is Lamb with sub headings of 'leg of...', 'minced', Shepherd's Pie, chops etc.

A good index is invaluable when trying to find information in a reference book and the Internet is no different. If you have a small web site then indexing will be quite a small task compared to the site with 4,000 articles!

We can provide you with reports that will show how your pages rank against all of the main elements regarding Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). You can then work on your site using our reports or we can also offer great rates for ongoing amendments and editing if you are too busy. Contact us to find out more about Search Engine Optimisation for your site.

Domain Names

A domain name is the equivalent of an address for people to use to find your site. Servers and systems all use the IP address to find your website but just imagine if your audience had to remember This is why we have domain names as they are more memorable for us mere mortals.

We always advise our customers to think about what they want to achieve with their website and buy as many domains as they may need. If it is a personal or family site where you don't expect to attract customers or unwanted visitors then you can have any domain name you wish (provided it is still available). For business, commercial or community sites where you are trying to attract an audience you need to consider some extra points before buying your domain names.

  • Do you have a company name?
  • Do you have a recognised brand?
  • What are your primary keywords and search terms?
  • Can any of the above be mis-spelled?

It is worth noting that a company name and a related brand name may not always be known to your surfing audience. Here in the UK we have chocolates called 'Revels' but do you know which company owns that brand? So if you rely on using a single website for your company you may miss some of your target audience.

Search engines index billions of web pages and they use a lot of different techniques to rank those pages. Most of us would like our site to appear on the front page of Google, Yahoo, MSN etc. but those positions are based on the most appropriate sites that match the search term entered. The domain name also plays a part in this process as it can help to bring you nearer to the top of search terms.


Two companies sell identical products - camping accessories. The first company has been established for 50 years and is called Johnsons (www.johnsons-camping.com). The second company is much younger, just 5 years trading and their company name is Kingston but their website domain is www.camping-accessories.com

Both sites have the same products, keywords, content, and incoming links. If a camping novice were to go looking for products and had no preference for supplier at this stage, it is likely that they might enter 'camping accessories' as a search term. Which of the two sites do you think is likely to rank highest? With all things being equal the search engines will prioritise the domain name as extra reasoning for a higher ranking.

Surprisingly enough there are many people who never consider mis-spelled names - Jane or Jayne? Accommodation or Accomodation? Can your domain name be mispelled? If it can then people will make that mistake. It is always worth buying every derivation of your domain as this secures the name. Some people would not think twice about creating a website that looks similar to yours and capture business form a mis-spelled name or even a TLD that you failed to buy. Many people will buy the .com or .co.uk but not both as they feel it is wasted money. It isn't rocket science - £9.00 a year for each extra domain name or risk someone else stealing your customers.
