Together, these efforts will ensure you are found by local customers looking for your services.

Comprehensive Keyword Research

Keywords play a substantial role in SEO, so finding and analyzing relevant terms for the audience searching for you is vital. Their search terms must appear on your website to match those searches.

Our team extensively researches the keyword difficulty, number of monthly searches, and relevance to your services. Keyword difficulty describes the popularity of a keyword and the level of competition there is for it. The more popular a specific keyword or phrase is, the harder it is to stand out. Additionally, we will perform tests to understand your visitors’ intent when searching, which can be any of the following: navigational, informational, commercial, or transactional. For instance, if Tom searches “best home security system,” he is likely still researching the topic, so this is considered informational. Likewise, if he searches “home security system Chicago,” he’s probably looking to buy a system, and his intent is considered transactional. 

Knowing the intention, volume, and difficulty will allow us to choose appropriate keywords for your company and services. We can then tailor the content on your website to better match when someone searches for keywords that describe you and your services so that you naturally filter to the top of the results.

Optimized Local Listings

Search engines like Google and Bing offer free business listings through Google Business Profile and Bing Places for Business. Utilizing these free tools is essential for gaining more regionally targeted traffic to your website and getting noticed by search engines and potential customers. These listings are digital billboards, and when people search for your business or anything related, they will get fast information about you and your services.

Optimizing these local listings is a no-brainer when it comes to effortless marketing. When optimizing your profile, we will include your operating hours, logo, website link, phone number, street address, and business photos. We will also list the services you offer and your coverage area. The key to complete optimization is accurately categorizing your business. Google, in particular, allows one main category and ten additional subcategories. These areas are likely the most significant part of your business profile, as they tell your audience the most information.

On-page SEO Strategies

On-page SEO, as defined by Hubspot, is optimizing various front-end and back-end website components to rank in search engines and attract new traffic. On-page SEO components include content, site architecture, and HTML elements that tailor your website’s content and metadata to rank higher for local searches. Other elements include visual content, page titles, headers, meta descriptions, image alt-text, structured markup, page URLs, internal linking, mobile responsiveness, and site speed.
