Search Engine Optimization
SEO Strategies With No Shortcuts For Higher Conversions & Traffic
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the practice of increasing a website’s visibility to search engines in regards to natural, organic search results. It’s not a difficult concept and simply means you want people to be able to find your website easily when they search online for keywords related to your industry or niche.
For example, if someone is searching for “pink unicorn bicycles” and you just happen to sell pink unicorn bicycles, you want to ensure your website is “optimized” for pink unicorn bicycles.
This is search engine optimization in a nutshell, albeit a very tiny example.
Done properly, it can increase the quantity and the type of traffic your website can get through organic search results.
Done incorrectly and you can take months or years to recover. While you can rank a site with “black hat” methods, they do not last and can lead to your website being penalized by Google.
Why Is Search Engine Optimization So Important?
Your website needs to rank for your main product or service keywords in search engines to be found by potential customers.
It’s important to understand what terms are being used when visitors search, what devices they are coming from and what times of day they frequent your site.
We gather all of this initial information via a full SEO audit that we perform on your website. We can determine which keywords you currently rank for, which ones you don’t (but need to), broken links, slow load times, technical page issues and so on.
A well optimized websites will always have an advantage over one that is not.

Just posting frequently isn’t enough. The writing needs to be of a caliber that people can not only relate to and easily understand, but quickly feel appreciative of and immediately sense the standards you employ.
Content creation can be a time-consuming process. Google looks for specifics in terms of article length, quality, sentence and paragraph structure, as well as uniqueness.
It’s a process that is not necessarily crystal clear when one is trying to attract internet readers and that’s why you need a team that stays up to date with the latest tips, trends and alerts.
