"The best place to hide a dead body is page 2 of the Google search results."
If you're not on the 1st page of Google, 9 out of 10 prospects will never find you.
The goal of SEO is to: Attract visitors to your site • Convert them into leads • Close them as customers • Nurture recurring sales
After initial keyword research, we want to get a lay for the land & perform a website audit. This will uncover any opportunities for improvement & give us an idea of how much work is needed to optimize your site for the search engines.
In order to rank for specific keywords or to rank in the local search results, we need to implement on-page SEO from URL structure fixes to an internal linking strategy to the creation of keyword-rich meta tags. On-page SEO is highly important.
Backlinks are the internet's currency. Each link back to your site is essentially a vote in a popularity contest. Google favors websites who have high quality links from relevant websites as well as the number of links back to your site.
96% of users do not scroll past the first page of search engine results.
A main goal of SEO is to ensure your site is seen first, before your competition. Go to Google & run a search for any product or service. Yep, there are millions of results but you will only pay attention to a few of them. Wonder how those sites won the lotto & got so lucky? Hint: They've got a great SEO strategy in place.
Don't take on SEO alone. That's just scary! We've heard from people who've tried & told us they felt they were "taking 1 step forward & 3 steps back". There's thousands of moving parts in SEO as a whole, we know each part intimately & can help escort you through this frontier. Or, if you prefer...you can do what you do best & sleep easier knowing we're doing what we do best.
Often, it's the small one-off things that cause us grief. Yup, that's the case with SEO. It seems simple enough right? Just toss a boat load of keywords onto your site & you're done. Well, that's about the same as saying to get your Ph.D all you have to do is study a lot. Well that's partly accurate, it doesn't cover the many factors & steps involved.
We believe the best formula for online marketing success is a mix of data & science with creativity & strategy. Someone out there is getting all the traffic & customers that you should be getting. Let's have them come to you.
Before we tackle anything else, we conduct Keyword Research. We can't successfully help a business unless we know what they & their competitors are offering. Once we have selected the best keywords, we can start working toward increasing your ranking & traffic.
