The 3 Things Your SEO Agency Must Be Doing

Running a business is a lot like running a marathon; you’re committed to long-term goals. For success in today’s competitive market, you must turn to proven endurance strategies to achieve your long-term goals. While most SEO agencies may make a misstep along the way, if your provider isn’t implementing each of these 3 key strategies, it’s time to hire a new agency. 

  1. Blogging. Blogging is SEO. It is without a doubt the most effective strategy for search engine optimization. Every time you publish a blog it creates an indexed, keyword-focused page on your website. This shows Google and other search engines that you’re active and relevant in your industry.benefits_of_blogging.png

 In addition to SEO performance, there is the Go Back To benefit of blogging:

  • Blogs serve to answer the common questions and concerns your clients have – making your business their information authority.
  • People always go back to where they got their information when they are ready to buy.

 Take it from our clients who have run a few marathons.

  • Those clients who blog attract 55% more visitors than those who do not.
  • Those clients who blog generate 88% more leads than those who do not.
  1. On-Site Optimization. An accomplished SEO firm will not only make sure that every single page is optimized; they will also explain to you the method behind the process. The best method of on-site optimization is to make sure each and every webpage has a keyword focus.

These crucial keyword needs to be included in your:

  • Web Page Content
  • Image Alt Text
  • Meta Description

Starting an online website and business without optimizing EVERY SINGLE webpage is like a running a marathon without shoes. Right off the starting line, you are going to suffer greatly. Your endurance won’t last and you are not going to get very far.

  1. YouTube. A majority of SEO firms are not taking advantage of YouTube as a critical tool to optimize performance. Today, YouTube actually surpasses Google in the number of searches per minute
  • YouTube has 2.78 million searches
  • Versus Google’s 4 million searches

Creating and posting YouTube videos for your product or services will, without a doubt, give you a competitive advantage in your industry.

How To Do Proper SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) is much more than inserting a series of keywords into your content.  There are strategies that enrich SEO to be highly effective and bring qualified leads to your web site.

Some of the strategies to make SEO work properly include:How To Do Proper SEO

Tagging – leveraging metatags can seem almost old-school to some, but search engines still review tags and descriptions as part of their ranking evaluation algorithm.  Make sure your tags are optimized according to your search strategy.

Embedded links – utilize embedded deep links in your web site as well as in blogs, emails, social media posts and other online content to make sure as many of your pages as possible can be accessed or referenced for a specific purpose.  Also ask partners, suppliers and others to use deep links to your web site in order to build online credibility and increase search rankings.  Make sure, however, that all links are credible and relevant to your site and business purpose.  Search algorithms have become highly adept at detecting nefarious linking and if deemed inappropriate your ranking can actually be lowered or completely removed.

Continuous tuning – Note that SEO is an ongoing process that involves regular review of your rankings, comparison of your key performance metrics, and updating your content when needed.  Prepare for a continuous process of review and tuning as part of your strategy.

Above all, content – your online content must be healthy, updated, and relevant in order to maintain and improve your search rankings.  All content should be optimized and consistent with your strategy.  This includes your web site, blogs, Ebooks, white papers, emails, social media, articles and any other content used online.

Properly executed search engine strategies can yield great success for businesses in the form of increased web site traffic, higher quality leads, and better sales conversion rates.  For more information please call us directly or click the button below and we will contact you.  Thank you.
