SEO Tips: Find out Related Keyword and Key-phrase Search the Most Easy Way ! – By Sadiq M. Alam( Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Codeboxr.) )

ImageAre you planning for SEO? Looking for related keywords and key-phrases which are most frequently used? Different people think differently. What you will be using to search online, your friend might be using a different bunch of words for the same goal.

If online business owners could know how diverse minds of it’s customers work, that would solve the problem. But in reality they can’t. That’s why you need to know some trick to understand other related keywords and key-phrases. There are advanced tools to do that, like Google Keywords Tool which comes with Google Adwords and provide various way to analyze keywords. But what if you need to check real quick?

Here are couple of quick tips which are the most easy way to find out related keywords and phrases.


Don’t Hit Enter, .. Wait

Almost all major search engine has implemented live search which basically start showing you result and suggestion as you type, particularly after first few keystrokes are done. This is true for Google, Bing and Yahoo. If your search dont have live search then check the preferences/settings and turn it on. Google for example has settings (Search Settings) to turn “Instant Result” on or off.

So lets say you want to find out what other popular search words and phrases are there, type first one or two words and wait without hitting enter in search. Google, Yahoo and Bing, all will show you suggested search from its popular search results.

The above screenshot from Google shows that after typing ‘Excel tutorials’ google started to pour in other popular and related searches. Same is true for Yahoo and Bing.

Bing 2013-11-28 15-19-29

Yahoo 2013-11-28 15-20-53

So thats the quickest way to get recommended related keywords and key-phrases.

Let Search Engine Suggest you

Other than live search, once you hit enter for any key-phrases or even keyword, either towards the end of first page search result (in case of Google, Yahoo) or at sidebar (in case of Bing) you will see the search engine itself will provide you a list of 8 related items. They are very valuable to understand what other search terms are popular. See the screenshot below to from top 3 search engines for suggestion.

Are Facebook Ads Effective? How to Optimize Facebook Advertisements? – By Sadiq M. Alam(Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Codeboxr)

If you are the kind of business owner who has clients/ potential customers sitting on the internet and you are interested to have them as your converted customer, then you must also know that Facebook is the #1 destination and most time-spent single website right now in the universe. As a result it makes perfect sense to attract your customers through Facebook Ads. Defiantly facebook Ads are is effective. A study shows that 37% of Marketers think their Facebook advertising is quite effective. If you need effective facebook ads must have to optimize the Ads.


Why Facebook as Advertising Platform?

  • Because people are always there
  • You can do precise targeting of your potential customer. Facebook has excellent filters to target the exact kind of audience you wish to reach
  • Its relatively inexpensive
  • Its the biggest platform for your social marketing strategy

Who Will Put my Ads there?

You may put up yourself. You will need to signup and configure your Facebook Ad Manager, connect a card/ bank. You will need to know the technical knowhows of costing model, how to target effectively and how to optimize the ads there.

Or You may Ask us to put your Facebook ads for you

We offer services to create, executive, monitor and manage your Facebook ads for you. Feel free to contact us for Free Consultation and Quotes. We have very competitive pricing.


How to Optimize Facebook Ads?

Two basic things before facebook Ads:

  • An in-house digital/Social Media manager. Nobody communicates your brand on Facebook like your own staff. Those traders that have made the investment are seeing much higher commitment and closing more sales.
  • A budget for Facebook ads. Facebook ads complete your strategy. Your Social marketing manager stimulates engagement by curating valuable, pertinent content for all your platforms. Facebook ads amplify your reach and increase your sales.

facebook-adHere are few more tips:

Identify Your Goals. Do you want to grow your fan base? Are you encouraging an event? Are you ready to make Facebook ads a significant source of leads for your business? Define your goals first. You must have clear goals so you can measure your ad’s effectiveness later!
Facebook is Local. Facebook is the place where you can build an online community that mirrors your offline community. Facebook ads target your local area in ways like never before. You reach those people who will most likely buy from you.
Facebook Ad or Supported Story? Supported Stories are about your Pages’ activities on Facebook. If you have a post with particularly high engagement, spotlight it with an ad. These types of ads reflect Social proof to other users; evidence that people are engaging with your Page. Facebook Ads are more outmoded. You create a message you want to share and choose who you want to reach.
Landing Pages. A staple of internet marketing, landing pages drive visitors to do what you want them to do. When used with Facebook ads, design your ad so that people will click and be taken to your landing page. Once on that landing page, you have an chance to create more value and carry visitors further down the sales funnel.
Target the Right People. Let’s say that the buyer demographic for one of your vehicles is women aged 35-54. What are the interests of this group? Perhaps topics relating to family, work/life balance, shoes? Facebook ads allow you to choose specific audience interests and target those people who are most likely to buy.
Design an Engaging Ad. You’ll need a catchy headline, marketing language for the body of the ad and a compelling photo or graphic. I’ve talked about the misconception that, since Facebook provides free real estate to build your community, everything else is free and easy. No dice. Facebook ads take skill, training and money to develop and design. Facebook is a new medium but the age-old components of successful marketing and advertising are still very much alive and kicking. If you don’t have it, get help.
Connections. It’s important to note that Facebook ads are Social. Ads can be customized to reach people who are already connected with you or not at all connected with you. You choose if you want to reach friends of your fans or not. Identify what kind of connection users have to your page so you can reach your optimal audience.
Location. This is where you can laser target your surrounding community. Choose a city, include surrounding cities, or target exact zip codes.
Objective. You have a choice now to reach people you want to “like my page” or “click on my ad or sponsored story”. Page Like Ads are a great way to build audience size. Page Post Ads will drive deeper engagement. Your choice governs whether you’ll pay per 1,000 impressions (CPM) or per click (CPC). CPM, according to Facebook, is the cost per 1000 times your ad or sponsored story is displayed. In the past, impressions were not always effective. Now, with Timeline stats showing higher page engagement, I’m seeing good results with CPM.

SEO for Moodle – How to Optimize your Moodle for Search Engines? By- Sadiq M. Alam (Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Codeboxr)

The PainImage

You have a site made with Moodle where you are offering courses, tutorials and so on, but your site hardly comes up in the Google Search Results Page (SERP). What do you do about this?


To improve your site’s result in SERP, there are a lot of factors which are involved. The obvious ones being: URL or web address – how much they contain keywords, title of your site, quality and freshness of content, age of content, structure of your site, speed of loading, engagement, how crawl friendly it is etc.

Now when the a site is made with Moodle, many of the above mentioned factors can not be optimized perfectly. That is one of the primary reasons why Moodle alone can not do very well in terms of ranking well on the search engine.

What Can be Done?

Even though Moodle’s SEO (search engine optimization) scope is limited, there are few areas which can be improved.

– Inside Moodle, enable the opentogoogle setting in siteadmin > security > site policies.

– The opentogoogle variable in Administration >> Configuration >> Variables may be set to ‘Yes’ to allow Google to enter your site as a Guest.

– Have a simple site name that is clean, has keywords and relevant e.g. [Organisation Name] Leading E-Learning Site in Ireland

– Set the site description (Used by many Moodle themes as the metadata)

– Set course descriptions

– Have the course links on the front page (otherwise descriptions will not be crawled)

– Add a sitemap

– Ping your site. Use online pinging service to ping your site after you add contents / new courses.

– Link your Moodle site from other relevant sites. It could be forums, your blog etc. Also you should link to other relevant sites inside your pages.

– Share your content in the social media and let others share yours site.

– Get your own page on major social media and have inbound links from there to your Moodle site.


Some Advanced Methods

One of the reason why Moodle’s course pages dont do well on search engine is because of the messy URL structure. Currently they looks like this:

but they would do well if it were like: /course/learning_piano

In her blog, Jenny Gray suggested some way to do this. Read her blog post here.

In Moodle there seems to be a lot of discussion going on. Here are few threads:

+ Clear URLs a.k.a. User Friendly URLs

+ Course Access to Crawlers


Anything Simpler and Elegant?

Certainly. One of the best strategy for anyone who has certain number of courses offered in Moodle and wants them to rank well, is to have a separate landing or entry site. This entry site could be WordPress based or html based site. Then this entry site can easily be optimized for SEO.

The entry site can comprise of a Home Page, Course Catalogue Page to display all Courses and individual Course Page (with good search engine friendly URL) to attract search engine and visitors. Since Moodle course page has limitation that visitor’s often can’t access that without having registered in site or log in as guest, the entry site course page can server as a marketing / informative page to provide information about what the course contains etc. This is also excellent not only for SEO but also from marketing point of view. You may like to add a demo video there to give a taste, have some testimonials of past students who took the course before.

We, Codeboxr have experience in integrating Moodle with Entry site for better marketing and sales.
