What does your SEO process look like?

What is SEO? And why do I need it?

SEO is short for search engine optimization. Search engine optimization is the act of optimizing and structuring your website to maximize its recognition by search engines. It is vital because billions of people use search engines like google every day to search for many things. From looking up recipes to finding the nearest McDonalds to you, search engines are utilized to search for just about anything you can imagine. Every day you have potential customers searching for businesses like yours and, if you are not ranking, they are going straight to your competitor.

How do you know your SEO strategy will work for me?

Google does not explicitly tell you what to do to become the number one ranking for search results. That, however, does not matter because we can use the data from the sites currently ranking number one to get an idea of what googles algorithm wants. So we extrapolate what the top sites are doing and reverse engineer what makes them so successful. Doing this allows us to take our existing process and mix in some key factors that google has shown to favor. Google gives little specifics on what to do. However, there are still SEO best practices that you must follow to be successful. And this is why our strategies are so successful we focus first on best practices and then branch out from there. For instance, an easy one would be only having one H1 tag per page or making sure your site loads quickly on both desktop and mobile.

On-Page SEO

On-page techniques manage to improve your web pages rankings with search engines. There are seven elements on your web page where keywords should be to maximize their find-ability in search rankings. They are as follows: page title, URL/web address, headings, text, link text, image alt text, and page description. Search engines rely heavily on the text within your pages to figure out what it is. So it is vital to use your keywords throughout the page. At Terra Advertising Agency, our On-Page experts will create a unique strategy to help your page rank.

Off-Page SEO

Off-page techniques involve getting other sites to link to yours. Recently there has been a lot of debate on just how important backlinks are. The consensus is that getting backlinks for the sake of getting backlinks does not help your site. It hurts depending on how spammy the sites linking to yours are. We have run multiple tests and, our data support the above consensus. At Terra, we focus on building high-quality and relevant backlinks and do not use any black-hat methods.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO is the process of making sure your website meets all of the technical requirements of the leading search engines. Technical SEO is vital to the organic success of your website. For example, if your site is not indexable or crawl-able, search engines will never know it exists. There is a long list of what you need to focus on optimizing, some of which are: XML sitemaps, URL structure, thin or duplicate content issues, 404 pages, and 301 redirects. At Terra, we have a 200 point technical checklist to ensure your site is structured most efficiently to maximize search engine find-ability.

Local SEO

Local SEO techniques involve optimizing your website to rank in a specific local area. If you own a local business like a shop or restaurant, local SEO can give your business a boost. Imagine when people search “best restaurant in Orlando” (our research shows it gets 52,000 searches a month on google) and, your site shows up as number one. While this is just an example, it allows you to see how local SEO can completely change your business. In that scenario, if you were to use paid advertising to achieve those results, you would be spending 10s of thousands a month. At Terra, we specialize in Local SEO for small businesses. We want to work with you and help you start ranking!
