The internet is a vast place – staying at the top of the pack is essential to capturing readers, customers, and clients through a business website. Without search engine optimization (SEO), even the most beautiful sites can fall behind and languish online without effectively reaching and converting the intended audience.
Implementing an expert search engine optimization strategy is vital for staying ahead of competitors.
BlendIM believes in upfront costs for services rendered. While we offer a window into our main pricing package tiers below, a custom strategy will always be based on numerous factors dependent on what we need to do in order to meet, exceed and/or surpass a competitor in the same space.
There are between 100-200 million active websites online right now, with over 83,000 Google searches are performed every second. The days when a business could put a webpage online and hope for the best are long gone. Today, websites need to rise through the ranks. The most effective approach is via search engine optimization or SEO for short.
Search engine optimization brings organic traffic to a website. “Organic traffic” refers to website visits generated through natural placement in the search engine result pages (SERPs). Individual businesses may also benefit from a simultaneous pay-per-click search engine marketing (SEM) campaign that optimizes for paid ads which show up on the top and bottom of the organic search results. An SEO marketing company can help you decide which approach is best for your business right now.
By moving higher in the search results – ultimately, to the top of the first page – a business website has a higher likelihood of connecting with their ideal audience. This organic traffic that is generated to the site is then used to achieve many marketing and sales goals, such as generating leads, collecting contact information, selling products, and driving in-person visits to local establishments.
Because over 90% of information searches happen on Google, the search giant’s algorithms heavily influence a search engine optimization strategy both on page and off. However, placing a focus on SEO can improve rankings on all search engine result pages.
The majority of search engine users never click the second page of results. If a website isn’t showing in the first few options, it’s unlikely to be discovered. These sites miss the chance to win over potential customers.
It is also essential to keep business information up to date across all platforms, including websites, social media, Google My Business, Yelp, and more which is normally referred to as NAP (name, address, phone number). This approach is of particular importance to any businesses that are using a web presence to drive calls and visits to physical locations. If a potential client cannot find the correct contact information for a business, their patronage may be lost. Your chosen search engine optimization company can help you optimize for these local SEO results as well as overall rankings.
Anyone interested in starting a new website will benefit over time from the inclusion of a healthy SEO strategy from day one. However, if a website has been online for some time, it’s never too late to begin search engine optimization. If you’ve never implemented an optimization strategy, or are feeling like previous efforts did not return the desired results, a new approach to SEO can rejuvenate existing websites.
A good search engine optimization strategy brings websites in front of relevant visitors and potential business customers. Without an SEO strategy, there is little chance that a website will succeed in reaching its ideal audience through organic search.
For SEO to be effective, it must become part of a regular marketing strategy. New websites are added to the internet every day, and Google’s ranking methodology can suddenly change. Up-to-date search engine optimization services are an integral part of remaining competitive online. Maintaining an active and easily accessible website is also necessary for establishing value and trust with a business audience.
An expert SEO marketing company can advise on the best search engine optimization tactics for any website. This expert input helps to ensure that businesses reach the right audience and are not throwing money at things that won’t work.
When selecting an SEO services company, it’s important to remember that SEO is not a one-size-fits-all approach. A reputable search engine optimization company should offer:
It is advisable to be wary of SEO services that purport to offer an “overnight fix” or refuse to disclose any details about their approach. These companies may be engaging in unadvisable SEO practices that can ultimately create penalties and harm search rankings.
