Our SEO Strategy: How We Increase Your Search Visibility
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an essential marketing strategy in any marketer's toolbox. Still, optimizing your website for Google's search algorithm feels like black magic. We're here to demystify that process.
Why? Because any company that tells you that SEO IS black magic is selling you snake oil. SEO is science, and you should approach it in a scientific way, no matter the situation. That means identifying key SEO actions and executing them in a consistent manner.
But first, let's talk about why SEO is easy to mistake for something less scientific than it is.
Why SEO Strategies Can Seem Like Magic
SEO is a marketing effort that increases online traffic by adding elements to a site that appeal to Google's search algorithm. This means strategic changes to keywords, word counts, and other technical elements.
The key is knowing that SEO is all about interpreting and working within an algorithm we can't control. So, SEO professionals need to interpret how search algorithms work with intensive research. This process often makes SEO look 'magical.'
A good SEO pro will respond to trends or changes in Google's algorithm as they occur. They will respond quickly—tweaking your site's optimization until it performs its best. In this way, SEO work is detective work—good SEOs are Sherlock, and bad SEOs are Watson.
So, let's walk through what the very start of an ongoing Montana SEO process with our SEO team looks like. The beginning of that process? Research!
We Establish SEO Goals
We find that the best SEO strategies involve precise targeting. So, we start by understanding who the client is and what they stand for. To that end, we start our Montana SEO strategies with in depth research of your site. This helps us establish goals and begin keyword research.
The best copy and keyword strategies change based on your business's goals. That could mean anything from 'more qualified leads' to 'making more money' to 'more localized results.' The difference in exact keyword phrasing can be slight (I.e., Bozeman SEO vs. Montana SEO). Still, the difference in traffic can be vast for each specific vertical.
The difference is all in how Google perceives your specific business. So, if you're a hair stylist, it's better to use hyper-regional phrasing like 'Bozeman, MT haircuts.' If you're an inspector, use more general locations like 'Montana home inspector.'
Your goals also change how we manage your GMB profile to optimize for local search results.
We Find Your Target Market
SEO is all about sending Google and your customers an optimized branded message. So, finding and writing to your target market is crucial to SEO strategy.
You can have a high-volume of website traffic and still convert none of your leads. Make sure your website copy is speaking to the right audience and tighten up your phrasing. The more accurate your keyword use is to the intended meaning, the better.
Many clients come to us with a target market already defined. Our SEO marketing team is also happy to help define your market. We have decades of experience defining target markets for our customers.
We Find High-Traffic, Targeted Keywords for Your Business
What are Keywords?
Keywords are specific terms that people search for. The more popular those search terms are, the better.
You're likely familiar with what your customers want and their common search terms. So, we always ask our clients is they have any core keywords. If you're not tracking keywords, we'll help you define core keywords to start.
Google's search engine algorithm relies on keywords for context. So, keywords drive your SEO. We also provide ongoing link-building and other SEO services, but keywords come first.
After we learn the keywords you already track, we'll analyze them and let you know how you rank for them. We'll also bring other good keywords to your attention. Finally, we will track your website's ranking for those keywords as you move up in organic search results.
