SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and that is simply a way of saying you are making it easier for search engines like Google and Bing to find your content.

Search engines have as their goal the matching of relevant, quality content to your search. If, for example, you go to Google and type in “best nail trimmer for dogs,” Google is likely to provide you with a list of reviews, or perhaps even pet stores in your area.

The page that comes up in response to your search is referred to as the Search Engine Results Page, or SERP, and most people searching for something never venture past that first page of 10 results, so if you are trying to bring traffic– and thus customers– to your site, ranking on that front page is vital to your business.

If you operate a business and have a website, you’ve most likely tried to grasp the concept of search engine optimization (SEO). Many people believe SEO is simply having the right keywords on their website so their page ranks higher in search engine results.

Although keywords are an important part of SEO, they really only scratch the surface of what’s involved in having your website rank well. Here at Marwick Marketing, we’ve poured blood, sweat and tears (well maybe not blood) into mastering the concept of SEO to help businesses get found on the internet. If you’ve been thinking about SEO lately, and are wondering what exactly it is and how it could benefit your business, then read more here.

Using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and improving your website’s SEO consistently is vital for its online success. Choosing the best SEO keywords is extremely important to this process. The good thing about properly executed SEO is that the work you do now will continually produce organic ranking results for you for a long time to come. Follow these steps to choose the best SEO keywords for your website.

Think about the subject of your business, not your brand name but what you would type if you were a customer. Write down all the keywords that you think people are most likely to use when searching for the information that you have. Get the opinion of other people such as friends, family, and customers. Ask them what keywords they have used or think they would use to find your website.

Use a keyword tool that can give you more suggestions. Many free ones are available online, the most popular being Google’s Keyword tool. It will be able to tell you the keywords or phrases that are the most popular and likely to bring you the traffic you want. It will also let you know how strong the competition. Read more here.

Search Engine Optimization for Pest Control Companies

If your pest control business is top of Google when a customer is searching for pest control, rodents, commercial pest control, remove bed bugs – or any one of the hundreds of search terms there is a high chance you will land that customer as it is very unlikely they will be “shopping around” during their time of need.

Search Engine Optimization is the process of working on your current website to improve the user experience, which Google will reward you for. Things like website speed, website security, informative and helpful content, and good quality backlinks to show the popularity of the website. Ensuring the website has no errors like broken internal links, missing page titles, or Alt tags. These are all areas that a good SEO specialist will be able to guide you through, step by step.

The search term “pest control” is searched over 8,000 times a month in Canada and 115,000 times in the USA. Interestingly “exterminator” is searched 3,000 times a month in Canada and 55,000 times a month in the USA.

No matter what your business is, you want to stand out among your competitors. You strive to be the best in your field, and you want to let your potential clients know why they should choose you over anyone else. So, if you want to be unique, why advertise in a generic way? For your Vancouver business, you want to ensure that you are working with a reliable SEO Consultant.

You probably already know that SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is a way to ensure that those who are looking for the goods and services that you offer are able to find you. To be highly visible, you need to rank on the front page of Google’s results page, ideally in the top three results. Why? Because anything beyond that tends to be overlooked.

But why do you need an SEO Consultant?

When you are looking for a product or service, wouldn’t it make sense to deal with someone who is knowledgeable about your local market and the place where you live and do business? Your clients likely feel the same. If you are going to reach out and appeal to local clients, then your advertising should reflect your local connections.

Vancouver isn’t a city like every other city. There is a unique character and a way of doing things that you don’t find everywhere else, so why would you want your SEO practices to be the same as other cities on the other side of the country? Would you take the same approach in Vancouver, as in, say, Montreal? Not likely.

Vancouver has character and charm. It is considered one of the happiest places to live and has been called the most livable city in the world. Most of all, however, it is known for its intense natural beauty, from snow-capped mountains to its deep blue sea, Vancouver has it all. Vancouver is unique, as are the people who live here.

In a city such as this, you don’t want to settle for run-of-the-mill SEO. You want to deal with an SEO consultant that understands Vancouver and its people. SEO is all about making connections; it bridges the gap between businesses and customers. For that reason, you need a consultant who understands your audience and knows their habits, their motivations, and desires. You want a professional SEO specialist who can connect you in a way that those who are not familiar with the city will not be able to do. By understanding your customers better, your SEO consultant in Vancouver will be able to determine your best method of connecting with them.

So how do you qualify a SEO consultant in Vancouver?

1. Ask for a list of current and past SEO clients

Reputable SEO consultants in Vancouver should have no issue sharing a short list of past and present clients. This will help give you an idea of how effective they are and what a working relationship with them might be like. Clients should be able to give you an idea of what sort of impact the SEO consultant had on their search rankings, the size of their audience, and their conversions.

2. Find a SEO consultant who tracks EVERYTHING

You want decisions to be made based on data and results, not just instinct and gut feelings. The consultant you hire should be tracking and measuring all of your data, including phone calls, site visits, contact forms, click-through rates, and much more.

3. Set specific SEO goals

When you are looking to hire a specialist for your Search Engine Optimization (SEO), have a goal more specific than “increasing organic traffic.” While greater amounts of traffic may be a good thing, it doesn’t automatically translate to increased revenue for your business. Ranking well in the SERPS likewise is not going to prove useful if you are ranking for something outside of your domain.

Detail what it is that you are looking for. This may be a boost to your sales by ranking on certain keywords, reducing your website’s bounce rate, or improving your conversion rate. Perhaps you seek to build a strong following on social media or create sponsored content.

Whatever your goals may be, be clear on what you expect and what you will require to reach those goals.

4. Trust word of mouth

Your first instinct may be to do an online search and choose the company that ranks well with the search engines. That seems logical enough, given that this is what you want them to do for you. Consider, however, that there are excellent companies that are so busy optimizing sites for their customers that they don’t do their own as effectively.

A truly excellent SEO specialist should have long-time customers who have also referred others to them. A consultant that consistently satisfies their customers and earns referrals will be busy enough without having to scramble for attention online.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that someone that does score well in search engines or “best of” lists aren’t worth investigating; just be sure to factor in more than their position in the SERPs.

5. Work with an SEO consultant that communicates effectively

You probably already have access to many of the tools that an SEO expert will use, but you likely don’t have the time or resources to go through and analyze all the data. For this reason, you want to work with a specialist that can effectively communicate to you everything that you need to know.

SEO is an ongoing affair, so it is possible that you will be working with your chosen firm for many years. Make sure you find a specialist that you can trust and build a long-term relationship with.

What Do SEO Consultant’s Mean By Onsite SEO?

Onsite search engine optimization, as the name implies, is concerned with the website itself, editing various items to make everything clearly understood by Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines. When your website is clear and appealing, search engines are more likely to award you a higher ranking in their search index. The elements that onsite SEO concerns itself with are the ones that tend to come to mind first when discussing Search Engine Optimization (SEO):

  • Content (evergreen pages, landing pages, blogs and FAQ’s)
  • Page titles and meta descriptions
  • Headlines (H1, H2 etc)
  • Keywords
  • Alt tag images
  • Site loading speed

What Do SEO Consultant’s Mean By Offsite SEO?
Offsite search engine optimization can indicate that you are an authority in your field by having other reputable sites link back to yours. Google’s search engine algorithm considers a site’s authority when determining rank.

  • Create high-quality content that is not only interesting but the type of content that is easy to share. Be entertaining in addition to informative.
  • Make use of review sites. Doing this effectively will get people talking about your business. Having a good public reputation can benefit your company in multiple ways.
  • Reach out to influencers that are already known to your target audience. Collaborate with those that your audience trusts.
  • Do some guest blogging. If you can start writing for someone who is already recognized as an authority in your field, you can gain some excellent exposure. Always link back to your site.
  • Tap into social media. Be active across social media and engage your followers. Encourage activity on your page and aim to have your followers mention your business on theirs.
Your SEO specialist should be able to confidently speak to you about each of these areas in detail, and show you how to leverage tgem in your campaign.
 

These are all things over which you have control and which you are able to adjust for maximum impact.

While you can gain a certain amount of authority simply from having been around for a certain length of time, that is not terribly efficient when compared to more active means. Here are some ways to improve offsite SEO:

Which is More Important, Onsite SEO or Offsite SEO?

In truth, both are important in the eyes of search engines. The focus of your efforts should initially lie with onsite SEO, given that it focuses on your site and its content. This is your foundation. From there, you can grow your authority by having other sites link back to yours, but this only happens if your site offers quality content and real value to your audience.

If you’ve been paying attention at all to the search engine optimization landscape in the past year or so, you know that this is one of the most constantly changing and ever-shifting areas in business. What works today to shoot your web property to the top of the rankings could very well be the factor tomorrow that cripples your business and drops you to the bottom of the barrel.

How to know that you’re making the right choice when hiring an SEO Consultant?
