Our SEO Process:
1. Technical Optimization
If we’re building your website, we ensure technical SEO is baked into the process – review of wireframes and mockups, redirects, and other optimizations a great site needs.
If we’re partnering with you for the long term, we’ll make ongoing SEO improvements, from technical tweaks to optimizations to newly added pages.
2. SEO Audit
If we’re working with you for the first time, we start by assessing the site’s current profile. We look at metrics such as keyword rankings and organic traffic, setting a baseline to measure performance.
Our comprehensive audits address code, site and page structure, content, and backlink profile, identifying opportunities and setting out a blueprint for future work.
3. Keyword Research
Keyword research gives us invaluable data about the specific terms users are using to search, and the volume of searches for those terms.
Just as importantly, the keyword research helps us understand users’ underlying search intent. Are prospects looking for general information, doing research on a product, or ready to buy? Answering these questions helps us shape content for maximum impact.
4. SEO Strategy
It’s great to uncover fixes that can give you a bump in the rankings, but our true value comes from being an organic marketing partner.
Our SEO strategy may be part of a fully integrated digital marketing strategy or a more channel-specific effort (depending on your needs). The strategy will set the stage, covering the tactics we’ll deploy and the benchmarks that will help to measure success.
5. Organic Marketing
We believe there’s no longer a bright line between search and organic marketing. If you can find it through search, we think of it through the lens of search – from social media, to customer reviews, to sites where you’re talked about.
As a result, your team may feature a roster of organic marketing talent spanning content, influencer, and digital PR. Taking a holistic approach to your search presence, we seek out opportunities to boost your brand wherever you may be found.
6. Measurment + Reporting
We report regularly – usually monthly – on what we’ve achieved. We don’t chase vanity metrics or industrial quantities of backlinks. We don’t hide the fact that SEO takes time to work, but we hold ourselves to metrics that show brand lift or make a measurable impact on business results.
