All of your SEO questions, answered.
1. What really is SEO?
SEO is the process of optimizing your website to gain more page one rankings on Google. You can expect more organic traffic by being on page one, leading to more inquiries and sales.
2. What does the SEO process look like?
While every website will require a different emphasis on specific SEO components, our SEO strategies mainly consist of on-page SEO, content creation, link-building, and consulting. Everything we do is to help your website earn more page one rankings.
3. How long does it take for SEO to work?
The timeframe it takes for your website to rank varies per client. We have worked with clients who have seen page one rankings in one month, but this is not the norm. Often around six months is where our clients begin seeing results. Results depend on how competitive of a niche you're in, your desired keywords, and how much previous SEO work your website has. Overall, SEO takes patience and commitment, but the results last for a long time compared to paid advertising.
4. What are keywords?
Keywords are the phrases that a potential client is searching for on Google. Choosing the best keywords for your website is critical when generating highly-targeted traffic. Keyword research is the foundation of any SEO campaign, as everything that follows is usually tied to the keywords you're trying to target. The perfect keyword helps your client, has a high search volume and doesn't have a high difficulty rating. We handle this research for you when working together.
5. What are backlinks?
The best way to define backlinks is other websites that link to yours, which helps increase your website's overall trust and authority. Think of it as a vote of confidence; the more backlinks you have, the more confidence and trust Google has in your website. However, it's important to remember that quality is always superior to quantity in SEO.
6. Why do I need to blog for SEO?
Blogging is an excellent way to target non-branded keywords and drive more organic traffic to your website that you can then direct to your products and service pages. For example, if we partner with a roofing company, we’ll produce blog content so that their site ranks for keywords like “How much does a new roof cost?” The more overall keywords you rank for, the more traffic and sales your website generates.
7. Do you send me reporting?
Of course, we do! Reporting for rankings, analytics, and a work summary will be provided to you every month to check in on the progress of your SEO campaign. Our monthly reports give a snapshot of the campaign's progress, allowing us to continue what's working and make changes if need be. Additionally, you'll always have access to our SEO reporting tool that you can log in to and check the status of your campaign. Some of our clients like to be involved, and some are hands-off.
8. Do you guarantee results?
We don't, and any SEO agency who says they can is full of SH🤬T! We can guarantee to generate several new backlinks and content each month. And we also assure you that we will use the same strategy on your website that's allowed us to help dozens of other clients' websites.
9. How much does SEO cost?
The cost of SEO varies. You'll see freelancers or companies online selling their services for $250 per month, but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Much work goes into every SEO campaign, and depending on your niche; your website may require more deliverables than someone in a less competitive industry and market. We don't have one-size-fits-all packages because our clients are all different.
