Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Grow Your Business to New Heights
What is SEO?
Are you looking to rank on the first page of Google and other search engines for your service area keywords? Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the way you achieve that goal.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or webpage in search engine results (SERPs). SEO targets unpaid traffic rather than direct or paid traffic, but it can also influence the ad quality and landing page qualities of your ad campaigns.
To touch the tip of the iceberg, here are some factors that influence your website’s SEO:
While this only touches a few basics of SEO, it gives you an idea of how Google is indexing different websites to serve the best experience to the searcher. It is crucial to build your website with SEO in mind, and to continually update your site to stay on top of algorithm changes, and competitor efforts. Otherwise, Google will not rank your website as high as others who are optimizing their sites.
If you are going to make a digital advertising push, your website’s SEO should be solid. Otherwise, you will be missing out on organic searches, and your paid ads will not have near the impact as an optimized site.
Is it Completely Necessary to Have SEO?
If you are looking to gain leads, customers, make sales online, or grow your brand’s reach – yes.
If you do not care about your website – no.
If you are currently looking at building a new website, but are wondering if you really need SEO, think about it like this: would you build a house without the proper framework to hold up the sheetrock?
The SEO framework on your website is arguably the single most important aspect. There are studies, tools, and search engine instructions that detail how you can make your website more likely to be seen, and make searchers more likely to convert into clients.
Integrating Copywriting and SEO
From social media posts, to webpages, to blogs, to digital advertisements –copy should be intertwined with your target keywords. This will lead to higher authority, more visibility for your target keywords, and a compounding plan that can drive down your cost per result.
This does not mean to dull down your marketing message. You still have room to use a grabbing hook, but your ad should clearly speak your target keywords and still feel genuine. Some take this to an extreme and only use keywords as their copy.
Without balancing your copy, and understanding how different platforms display it, your copy can feel like you are running circles without giving an offer and benefits.
