Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of making a website and business as visible and prominent as possible in search engine & local map results. With professional and effective SEO, a business will be seen by users searching for products or services offered locally to their area. This will help a website gain more targeted user traffic and allow a business to increase sales.

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 and contents of your pages. This includes important factors such as unique page titles, 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

Local SEO is the process of enhancing the online visibility of a business within the town or city it is located in. Business listings in the Google and Bing search engines are an integral part of Local SEO. Information from these listings will show up in search engine results when performing “near me” searches; such as your business name, address, phone number, hours of operation, website link, photos, and ratings/reviews. Your business information will also appear in map results; which helps customers get directions to your location.

As part of our Local SEO services, we claim your business listings in Google and Bing and make sure they display accurate information. We also enhance local listings with your logo, photos and other important details. These listings are crucial in generating local leads for small to medium sized businesses. Think of local listings in Google and Bing 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 location specific keywords. Organic SEO is useful for businesses who want to target customers in specific cities outside of their physical location. Each of your targeted markets will have their own “service area page” within your website. Over time, these new pages will gradually build visibility and ranking authority in search engines. This will help users find your website when searching for your services in or near their location; within your targeted markets.

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


Business Listing Management

Online directory websites such as Yelp, Angie’s List, or Manta contain listings that display information for local businesses. These listings display the business name, address and phone number along with additional info such as hours of operation, website links, photos, and business categories. Search engines use the 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 information in online listings is a key factor in local search visibility.

We perform a detailed audit of your business listings to review which directories you are visible and accurate on, and which are opportunities to update. Once we identify opportunity sites, we are able to update and enhance your business profiles on the most prominent directory websites.

Reputation Management & Online Review Monitoring

We actively monitor business reviews written by customers across prominent sites, including Google My Business, Facebook, and Yelp. We notify you when any new reviews are posted, allowing you to know exactly what customers are saying at all times. We also help with crafting responses to any customer reviews. Actively responding to customer feedback helps boost your online reputation and local engagement.

It is important for local businesses to encourage customers to leave reviews online. Search engines like Google factor in the number of reviews for a business when ranking websites in their search results. The more reviews you have the higher your website may potentially rank in Google.
