How Our SEO Service Works

On-Site SEO

On-Site SEO is important part of the overall SEO process. It involves the enhancement of specific technical elements of your website to help search engines understand the topic of your pages. This includes important factors such as writing unique page titles and heading tags, optimizing links and navigation structure, adding schema markup and setting up a blog to periodically add fresh content. We also optimize your existing website content through strategic keyword placement and internal link building.

On-Site SEO can be viewed as the foundation of any website. It helps visitors find information they are looking for, and it helps search engine crawlers determine what your website is all about.

Local SEO

Business listings in Google, Yahoo and Bing are an integral part of Local SEO. Information from these listings will show up in search engine results; such as your business name, address, phone number, hours of operation and ratings/reviews. Your business information will also appear in map results; which helps customers get directions to your business location. It is also important to add branding such as a company logo and photos. Other benefits include a valuable link to your website and the opportunity for customers to leave ratings/reviews of your business; which help improve your online reputation and local engagement.

As part of our Local SEO services, we verify and fully optimize your business listings in Google, Yahoo and Bing. These listings are crucial in generating local leads for small to medium sized businesses. Think of Local SEO as the modern day, internet version of the phonebook. Local listings are highly visible in search results when set up correctly.

One major benefit of an effective Local SEO strategy is an increase in both local brand presence and local traffic. Local traffic is customers who are willing to visit your business location. This allows you to make your sales pitch to them in person and build an important business relationship with them.

Organic SEO

Organic SEO involves generating content and new pages for your website in an effort to make it visible in organic search results for users searching for your services in areas outside of your primary location. Organic SEO is useful for businesses who target customers in other nearby cities or towns. Each of your chosen keyphrases will have it’s own specific “location page” within your website. Over time, these new location pages will gradually build visibility and ranking authority within Google, Yahoo and Bing. This will lead to users finding your website when searching for your services in or near their location; within your targeted markets.

Organic SEO is the most time-consuming and labor intensive aspect of our SEO services and can require a significant amount of time to become fully effective. It takes time for a website along with it’s pages to gain trust and authority from search engines, which makes organic SEO a long-term process with no end.

Citation Building & Web Directory Management

Citation building and web directory management are both important components of an effective SEO campaign. A citation is an online reference to your business’s name, address and phone number. Additional citation info can also include business hours, website links and specific categories that your business is listed in.

Citation information for your business can be found in various online directories such as Yelp, Manta, MapQuest, Yellow Pages or SuperPages. Search engines use citation information displayed in these online directories as a reference to validate legitimacy of your business and verify it’s location in a particular geographical area. Often times the information displayed in these directories is inaccurate, outdated or duplicated, which can damage the online reputation of your business and negatively affect your search engine visibility. Consistent citations in online listings and web directories are a key factor in local search visibility.

The most important factor of citations is that your information matches EXACTLY everywhere it’s listed online. That means your business name, address, and phone number need to be 100% the same – everywhere. We also build quality inbound links to your website from each and every online listing that we create for your business. Inbound links from citations help send more user traffic to your website and increase it’s authority and visibility within search engines.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to see results?

Individual results are mostly based on market competition and chosen keywords. It also depends on your website’s situation and overall online presence prior to us starting work on your SEO campaign. Some businesses see results in a month or less while others may take 6 months or longer.

Is Organic SEO cheaper than PPC?

Yes, Organic SEO provides much greater long term value. PPC is a short term quick method to obtain more traffic to your website but you’ll have to always pay for it. Organic SEO takes time but generates authority for your website and long term growth.
