Our most frequently asked questions about SEO.
How does SEO improve my business?
What is on-page vs off-page SEO?
Any work that’s done on the actual site such as, titles, tags, descriptions, content, website structure, etc., is known as On-Page. Any work not done directly on the website, such as blog writing, link building, social sharing, bookmarking, various content and more is known as Off-Page.
Should businesses do SEO if they already rank?
Can anyone guarantee first page rankings?
What are backlinks and why are they important?
Is there a keyword limit to your service?
We focus on seven (7) keyword terms in the base package. More keywords can be added by purchasing the add-ons.
What is On-page optimization and why is it important?
What is on-page optimization?
On-page SEO is the practice of optimizing individual web pages in order to rank higher. On-page ranking factors can have a big impact on your page’s ability to rank if optimized properly.
Why is it important?
On-page SEO goes well beyond keywords and includes everything from headers to title tags, structured data, image optimization, and more. On-page SEO helps Google better understand your website. And that is essential to improving your rankings, which leads to more organic traffic.
What is the benefit of adding the GEO on every keyword?
What if my business/service is very niche and there isn't a lot of competition. Do I still need to include a GEO?
Geos are used to ensure Google understands the initial goal of the campaign is to rank in that area. If potential customers are located in that geography when they search and just type the keyword alone without the GEO into Google, it is fine and the business will still show up in the rankings. But, we as an SEO company include the Geo in our work to assist Google in the results pages. Broader based national campaigns will not use a Geo modifier.
Do keywords ever drop in position during a campaign?
We can’t control Google and its fluctuations that happen constantly. Over time, the keyterms should rise on an upwards trajectory. Try not to look at them on a weekly or even monthly basis.
How many links can we expect on a monthly basis?
Is there any work done for Google's Local Pack ranking and Maps tracking ranking?
