Technical SEO Skills an SEO Professional Should Have

Ask any number of kids what they want to be when they grow up, and at least one will point out an obvious answer: astronaut. Actually, it’s pretty likely at some point most kids wanted to be astronauts. And yet we don’t see many roaming around. Why? Because becoming one is notoriously difficult.
First, you need a degree in engineering, math, or science. It would also help your cause to have either a military background or to a piloting license. Add an avid interest in mountain climbing, scuba diving, or skiing while you’re at it. Then, make sure you can pass a rigorous set of physical and psychological exams. Oh, and be the best at something else other than all that previous stuff. Congratulations! You might get a chance to go to an interview. Maybe that’s one reason we don’t see that many astronauts.
But the idea of a generalist background extends to more than the exotic job of being an astronaut. Many other professions are similar. To attend law school in the US, you need to already have a bachelor’s degree. A significant number of film schools offer formal training for film directors, but only as a master’s degree.
Job specialization has been the default framework for the past few decades, but today you can also notice a subtle shift towards a combination of general and specialized knowledge. One such area of intersection seems to be the SEO field, where marketing meets programming. They don’t have to meet, of course, but their interaction is what really makes you an SEO professional.
So what is expected of you in order to be considered a true SEO “expert”?

1. An Analytical Mind

The most fundamental requirement is actually not a technical one. You can learn to code and be fairly good at it, and you can get used to all the tech talk, but at the end of the day it’s not about the syntax or about the libraries, it’s about being able to solve problems. Knowing what information is necessary and how to gather it, being able to understand it, map it in the context of a larger framework, noticing patterns, understanding long-term effects of particular decisions, having a knack for solving puzzles…the list goes on and on. These skills (some come naturally, but most can also be developed and nurtured) come into play at each and every step of the SEO process. Technical SEO skills will allow you to make ideas come to life; an analytical mind will help you come up with those ideas in the first place.
You don’t necessarily need to switch jobs or focus entirely on programming, or assume that there’s no such thing as a marketer anymore. In fact, original ideas are still your best asset in the online world. But while a creative mind can be a wonderful spring of ideas, what you’re really looking for is a sustainable system of irrigation.
And only analytical thinking skills can give you that. Focus on short-term gains and build your strategy around passing fads and you will find yourself working more than you should every time Google rolls out an update to one of its algorithms. Ignore the signals in the sea of information noise and you will miss out on tremendous opportunities to grow and thrive. Run away from mazes and puzzles and you will have a horrible time every time you have to debug or optimize your site architecture. The best way to excel at what you do is to like what you do.

2. HTML Coding

Most articles about what tech skills SEO experts should have agree HTML coding is one of the very basic prerequisites. While this is by no means enough, it is pretty much indispensable to your job. SEO is a whole new beast nowadays, not just about keywords or linking. But in a deeper sense, it hasn’t changed much, as it has always been about the same thing: building sought after web sites.
And the best sites, more often than not, are built in a certain way: they are accessible, they are easy to follow, and they are well-organized. In order to efficiently deliver content to your audience, you need to know how to create and manage said content in a way that is in tune with the environment it resides in.
Perhaps nowhere in the modern media landscape is Marshall McLuhan’s famous phrase truer than on the World Wide Web: “The medium is the message.”
Of course, nowadays there are quite a few HTML editors, and a handful of them have a graphic user interface so what you see is what you get (Adobe Dreamweaver being probably the most recognized, with some other big names such as Google and Microsoft providing their own versions, along with a myriad of others). This type of software makes website building extremely user-friendly, to the point where anyone with minimal PC knowledge can produce site. But we’re not talking about your high school class Internet project here and you’re not in the business of creating web sites.
You’re in the business of creating marketable web sites, and for that you actually have to know the code and understand the syntax when you see it.

3. Web Hosting Experience

Choosing a quality web hosting provider is an important factor building a high-ranking website. Beyond that, though, there are other factors to consider. Web hosting choices must consider downtime, which refers to the amount of time your website is inaccessible due to problems with the hosting server. If one of Google’s spiders tries to visit your site and it’s down, it will record it as such and move on.
There’s no such thing as 100% uptime, but you want to get as close to that as possible. It is your responsibility to monitor your site’s downtime/uptime and make changes when you notice significant drops in percentages.
The second important element is speed. While Google’s algorithms take into account a staggering number of factors (over 200 by some accounts), the loading speed of your website is likely one of them. Of course, the loading speed itself depends on many things (configuration and coding for instance), but significant drops in speed might just be the fault of your hosting server.

Additionally, you should be familiar with other, simple things related to web hosting: uploading files, modifying content, changing settings, configuring accessibility, etc. This doesn’t mean you should fully assume web site maintenance duties. But there will be times when you’ll need to make changes quickly to fix an urgent matter. If your site gets penalized and receives a lower rating as a consequence, it might be something that you could fix by simply modifying or deleting content or files. Why rely on someone else for things that you can do on your own?

4. Excel Know-How

There’s a lot of data to be analyzed once you start treating SEO as a long-term strategic endeavor. And there are a lot of useful tools out there to help you make sense of the information you gather, but at a minimum you should be familiar with Microsoft Excel. In fact, you should be more than familiar with it: you should know it at least at a medium level. You don’t necessarily have to get to the level of using VBA macros, but knowing a little bit about search functions pivot tables, lookup functions, logical functions (if, and, or), and graphic objects will take you a long way.
You probably associate Excel with accounting, creating budgets and project plans, managing databases or tracking expenses/finance, but there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to this tool and learning how to use it will pay off.
When it comes to the SEO-related business, you can use Excel to sort, filter and group data to find specific information, look up specific information in large data streams, graph or chart data to identify trends and exceptions, manipulate text (format, collate), compare data strings and so on. All of these can come in handy when analyzing data.

5. Programming (PHP, JavaScript etc.) (Optional but Great Skill)

All of the technical skills mentioned so far are pretty much indispensable for an effective SEO. If, however, you want to go above and beyond, you should definitely start looking into programming languages such as PHP or JavaScript. PHP has improved a lot since it was first introduced and is now a staple in creating dynamic websites. It can be integrated in HTML code and can help you access a wide range of databases, authenticate users to restrict access to certain parts of the site, encrypt data, auto-generate files and so much more.
Most importantly, perhaps, is that it allows you to serve different content to users based on their browser, IP address, date and time,  and numerous other characteristics. These are tools that help make your site more creative, more useful and more accessible.
JavaScript helps you increase interaction with your visitors even more. Advertising, cookies, security: these are all closely related to the use of JavaScript. Furthermore, this language allows you to add behavior to your web site, so it is capable of responding to actions by your visitors without needing to load a new web page every time the visitor makes a request. A site accessible on multiple platforms with a pleasant navigation experience makes users more likely to click on your website and return to it, and in the end that is what you’re really interested in, regardless of your ranking.

6. Server Side Configuration (Optional but Great Skill)

Server-side refers to the server that runs the site. So a visitor’s request doesn’t get executed on their computer, but on the computer they requested the page from. The main advantage in using server-side scripts is the ability to highly customize the response based on the user’s requirements, access rights, or queries into data stores. You can use server-side scripts to enable automatic redirects from certain pages, or optimize MySQL so your database information can be accessed easily and quickly.
Server side configuration is really helpful in the diagnosis of different problems (like Google bot crawling), gives you a better understanding of your site’s security, helps you track the broken pages, and even fix “log in” problems your user might encounter.

Conclusion

There’s a lot you can do in terms of SEO without getting too technical. But there’s so much more you can do with some technical knowledge. If you have a car, is indispensable to know how to drive but a really good driver  knows all  the intricacies of his vehicle. You need to understand and even know how to write a bit of code. Get familiar with the engine (or, in your case, the server), the transmission (programming languages) and even the small nuts and bolts that keep it all together. In the long run, it will pay off. You will get more mileage, better speed, and you will attract more visits.

What Makes A Million Dollar E-Commerce Business?

As e-commerce business brokers, we get to see and value a wide range of e-commerce businesses, both good and others not so good. Owners come to us in every situation possible. Growing, declining, and anywhere in between, so we get to see a lot of different businesses. Typically e-commerce entrepreneurs approach us wondering what their business is worth and what it may sell for. Based off that experience and data, we believe the following eight  factors make a  million dollar e-commerce business:

1. Profit: 

The number one driving factor of a million dollar e-commerce business is profit. The accepted valuation approach for e-commerce businesses is a multiple of earnings valuation methodology. What this means is the value of an e-commerce business will be a multiple of the profit the business makes. A buyer will likely pay 2-3 times earnings. This means your e-commerce business has to be making between $333,000 to $500,000 in net profit per year to be valued over $1 million dollars.
There are many factors that will alter what multiple is paid, therefore it’s important to get a proper valuation to determine the true value of your e-commerce business. We will use 2-3 times as the benchmark valuation multiple for business under $5 million sold on the open market.
Factors brokers use to determine what multiple is paid include:
  • Profit
  • Growth
  • Website Traffic
  • Brand
  • Business Model
  • Income Streams
  • Age
  • Business Risks

2. Growth

If you had three example businesses: one growing, one that was stable, and one that was declining, the growing business is going to demand the highest price. This is best represented in the graph below. Sell when your site is growing or at the early states of maturity.

The reasons buyers pay more for a growing business is they can see future upside and a quicker return on investment. The general assumption buyers make when looking at financials is assuming a baseline trend and then projecting that trend into the future. Let’s take this example. Joe has an e-commerce store selling scarves. His store did $2,000,000 in sales in the last 12 months and $350,000 in net profit. Joe’s business has been steadily growing at 2% per month for the last 12 months. Here is what his projected business looks like:

Let’s say you put the business for sale for a 3X multiple which would give a valuation of $1,050,000. A buyer would then project using the past 12 months figures that the business will make $443,000 profit in year two and $596,000 profit in year three. Essentially allowing a buyer to make their money back in two years.
What this is going to do if you are looking to sell is:
  1. You are more likely to get a quicker deal
  2. You will possibly get a higher offer
What you have to remember though, is nothing in business is guaranteed. You might be sitting there thinking, if this is going to happen in my business, why not hold onto it? The likelihood that a business grows in this linear fashion is improbable, however what it does give you is a look into the mindset of how a buyer thinks about acquisitions and valuations. Their main motivation is “How can I get my money back and can I make that return on investment quicker?” This will influence the valuation that they come up with for a business.

3.Table Selection

Table selection is a poker term that relates to choosing a table to play at, where the players are worse than you, therefore you ultimately make more money. How this relates to e-commerce businesses is choosing a niche where there is growth, high margins, and a defensible market position which will ultimately improve your likelihood of a higher valuation.
A real world example of this is a toy e-commerce store we valued that was selling racing car products for kids. The business did extremely well for the two years after the toy was released, however it started to decline sharply as the product went out of demand. By operating in a market that has evergreen or growing demand your business is more likely to be able to get to a million dollar valuation.

4. Age

The Internet is young, technology changes, and things come in and out of fashion very quickly that if you have a business that is one to two years old you are going to get a drastically lower price than something that is over five years old. Generally the older the business, the more data and earnings history and the lower the perceived risk of the business failing and the higher the valuation.

5.  Defensibility

The more defensible your business, the higher the price. By defensible we mean barriers to entry, the stability of your income, traffic, and supplier sources.

Dropship Versus Warehouse

Data doesn’t lie. A warehouse based e-commerce business model is more valuable than a dropship based business model. As you can see from the graph extracted from our e-commerce business valuations report, the multiple paid for dropshipping websites is much lower. Dropship e-commerce stores are very easy to replicate and have low barriers to entry.  That is why it helps to have your own products that you have designed and developed or be known as the “go to” supplier in a specific niche.
The main reasons for a higher valuation for  a warehouse based e-commerce business:
  • Control Supply Chain
  • Manufacture Branded Products
  • Higher Margins
  • Ability to Incorporate More Paid Traffic
  • More Established
  • Scalability

Paid Versus Organic

If your e-commerce store relies solely on organic web traffic, then you are going to receive a lower valuation than if it has multiple traffic streams. The above graph shows that drop-ship e-commerce businesses sell for less. 90% of drop-ship websites rely solely on organic traffic. There is a direct correlation between these two observations.
We use this analogy; by relying on one leg of a table to support it’s weight you are increasing the risk of the business. If that leg get’s taken away then your table (business) collapses. By being solely reliant on one traffic source, particularly on the discretion of Google, is a losing game to play. Whole businesses have been destroyed with one algorithm update. That is why it is important to have more than one channel of traffic driving visitors and sales to your e-commerce store.

6. Systems

Especially with e-commerce stores, it is the systems and processes in both operations and marketing that increases value. Technically, with enough effort someone can set up a competing store in your niche with a little hard work and sweat equity. So it is not the idea and business that creates value, it is the systems and processes that run a business that have value.
Operational systems such as automation will help you fetch a higher price for your business. The less human elements in your business, the higher the amount a buyer is going to pay.
Similarly if you have an identifiable, traceable, and repeating marketing system for your business (not just solely relying on Google organic traffic) then you have a more valuable business. Integrating repeatable and profitable paid traffic sources will certainly ad value.

7. Clean Books

Poorly formed or non-existent financials will be a big problem for a potential buyer. The first two questions 99% of buyer will ask are:
  • 1) What is the gross earnings?
  • 2) What is the net profit?
And if you have no way of proving this, then it is going to be hard to value your business. Having all that information collected beforehand will ensure a smooth and speedy transaction.
Too help this process sometimes it’s a good idea to pay taxes. Who knew? What I mean is that instead of writing off every single expense in your business it’s a good idea to run your business lean for one year to show the true operating profit of your company for buyers, not for the tax man. What I just described is the perfect case scenario but isn’t always possible. So what needs to be done is to calculate the true net profit of your business. Even if you haven’t run your business lean for the last 12 months, there are ways of calculating the true operating profit and loss of your business in order to increase its valuation. This is something a broker does when providing a valuation on your business.

8. Which Platform is Best?

There is no conclusive data that suggests which platform is best. There are multiple reviews on the pros and cons of each e-commerce platform you can read online, however from a business sales perspective there is not enough data to come to a conclusive outcome.
Because profit is the main driver of valuation, we need to be objective when determining which platform will assist you in generating more profit. This comes down to the metrics of an e-commerce business. Does the platform allow you to tweak performance of the site to increase profitability?
eCommerceBattle What Makes A Million Dollar E Commerce Business?

Smart buyers want to know metrics and a solid platform (shopify, magento, bigcommerce) will already be designed to help you improve your metrics. And generally smart buyers pay a premium to the market because they can calculate the future potential of a business (what is really being sold) that is why it is important as a store owner to know your metrics and have tracking mechanisms in place. Whether they are automatic (analytics) or manual (spread sheets) tracking the following elements will improve your site’s profitability now and increase the likelihood of a higher valuation when you are selling. Things to monitor include:
  • Conversion Rate
  • Subscriber Growth Rate
  • Value Per Visitor
  • Average Order Size
  • Cart Abandonment Rate
  • % Returning customers
Of course, there are always going to be outliers and other factors that alter an e-commerce stores’ value. However, if you use the above eight recommendations as a baseline, you will likely find your valuation above the million dollar mark.

Google Maps Listing, Google Plus Page

Connect Your Google Maps Listing To Your Google+ Page

Google recently introduced the ability for those who have created a page in Google+ of a type other than Local business or place to integrate their Google+ Page with their Google Maps local listing.

Connecting the two together will carry over business hours, reviews, address, and more from Maps to the Google+ page. Please note that the changes are permanent, so be sure that doing this makes sense for your business.

Here’s how to connect them:

  • First, you have to create a separate local Google+ page–verified on Google Maps–for the same business as your page.
  • Log in to Google+, select Pages from the left-hand navigation ribbon, and click Manage this page on the local page.
  • From the top left corner, choose Dashboard > Settings.
  • Scroll to the “Profile” section. Next to “This page is connected to Google Maps”, click Connect a different page.
  • In the “Link a different page to this location” dialog, pick the page that you’d like to connect to Maps and click Next.
  • You’ll see a list describing the changes to the newly-created page you’re connecting to Maps, and the local Google+ page you’re disconnecting from Maps. Click Confirm.

The page that’s newly connected to Maps will:

  • Display the name and verification badge from the former local page.
  • Display the business information (hours, phone number, etc.) and reviews from the former local page.
  • No longer display prior owner responses to local reviews. Your existing reviews may take a few hours to show up after connecting the page.
  • Retain your page’s followers, posts, and managers.
  • Retain the custom URL (if you’ve set one up).
  • Possibly remove ad campaigns associated with the page. To start a new campaign, visit http://www.adwords.google.com/express and follow the step-by-step instructions.

The former local page will:

  • No longer display on Google Maps
  • No longer display local business information or reviews
  • Be renamed to “Backup of <page name>”
  • Still be visible on Google+
  • Retain followers, posts, and managers from the former local page
  • Retain the custom URL from the former local page (if you’ve set one up)
  • No longer display AdWords Express campaigns associated with the page.
