Our SEO Philosophy

When it comes to SEO, our  philosophy focuses on maximizing visibility by building upon three major pillars:

  • Technical foundation
  • Authority & trust
  • Content relevancy

Pillar 1: Technical Foundation

It’s extremely important that your website is technically sound so that when  search engines crawl your website, they can easily access your site and index it as efficiently as possible. This includes optimizing the site architecture (the way in which your site is organized).

 

Having an intuitive site architecture helps the search engines understand the connections between concepts and helps users find what they are looking for.

Pillar 2: Authority & Trust

Authority and trust make up the second pillar and can come from a number of sources. The most common factor for authority is the number of high quality backlinks that point to your site from other websites on the internet.

 

Once authority is acquired through those backlinks, a well-placed number of internal links, or links on your own website, ensure that authority is well-distributed throughout the site.

 

Trust can be broken down into two main categories: reputation and security.

 

A site is seen as reputable by employing indicators that read “trustworthy,” to search engines and users, like having common contact options, and displaying real, honest reviews from previous customers.

 

Search engines assess site security by ensuring a site is following a number of best practice guidelines such as:

  • Hosting on a secure server to safeguard visitor and customer data from malicious factors
  • Maintaining consistency in the topics and subjects upon which the site publishes content
  • Vetting sites to which the site is linking, ensuring those sites are trustworthy and secure

Pillar 3: Content Relevancy

Ensuring that all content on the site is relevant, up to date, using the correct language and verbiage for the context, and is optimized for the intended audience will improve search visibility.

 

Furthermore, identifying and removing duplicate content (content that exists elsewhere on the internet) improves a site’s visibility.

 

Also important is ensuring the content is high quality, meaning it provides value to readers and isn’t just an advertisement. Generally high quality content will generate traffic, and conversions (completing a sale, submitting a form, or some other action intended by the site).

 

When content is unique, high quality, attracting visitors, and assisting in making a sale, it’s seen as relevant, positively influencing search visibility.

What is SEO?

In its simplest form, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is a marketing discipline focused on ensuring the factors that determine how easily a website is found are tuned to maximize to their effectiveness.

 

When those factors, called search indicators, are performing at their full potential, a site’s placement on search engine results pages (SERPs) improves, maximizing the number of potential customers who find your website.

Search Engine Optimization Services

SEO isn’t just about making your site visible to search engines, though. It’s also important to create a great experience for your site’s visitors; SEO assists in this way as well.

 

One way to think about it is that you can consider the search engines as one of your site’s many visitors.

 

When SEO is done correctly, it assists in providing a great experience to search engines as well as your human visitors.

Our Guiding Principles of Search

We also utilize several guiding principles that align with the search engine guidelines and Google webmaster guidelines. These principles are recommendations that the search engines provide to webmasters on how to structure your site to best work with search engines.

 

In order to make a site as easy to index and as visible as possible, we adhere to these recommended guidelines, ensuring that: our clients are getting the optimal amount of search engine traffic, that the traffic is converting, and that those conversions are turning into leads (or sales) for our clients.

 

By building upon these pillars of SEO and adhering to these guiding principles, we’re able to deliver to our clients increased search visibility and more website traffic, which in turn, increases your site’s ability to convert more visitors into paying customers or leads.

Why is SEO Important?

It is very common for the majority of a website’s traffic to come from organic search results. Therefore it’s important to ensure your site is capturing as much traffic as possible.

 

There are other sources of traffic like social media, paid search, email marketing, referral traffic from other websites and even traffic from customers visiting your website directly.

 

And while these are great ways to diversify your traffic profile, organic traffic is one of the few marketing channels that provide an ongoing benefit.

 

SEO is an investment that can provide benefits to your business for many years, paying for itself many times over, while some other forms of traffic require a constant monetary budget; once you stop paying for advertising, those sources of traffic dry up immediately.

But I thought search engines were getting smarter?

Google and other search engines have come a long way since the the early days of search engines but they still need help. Even though search engines are getting smarter, many are still limited in the ways that they can operate.

 

An experienced SEO professional can net your business thousands of additional visitors and conversions that might otherwise visit your competitor’s website.

 

In addition to providing accessible content to the search engines, SEO can also increase your rankings and visibility in the search results pages (SERPs), so that searchers easily find the information or products that you offer.

 

Considering the competitive nature of the Internet, companies who invest in SEO tend to have a considerable advantage over companies that do not.

Are there specialized types of SEO?

The practice of search engine optimization is a widely accepted and broad name for the discipline.

 

There are many other places where your customers may be searching for you. Therefore, different forms of SEO have been developed that focus on specific tactics, areas of optimization, or even non-traditional search engines.

 

Some of the different types of SEO include:

Local Search Optimization

This is a specialized marketing discipline that focuses on increasing the visibility for businesses with a local presence who are interested in ranking for geographically related keywords. One of the largest components of local SEO is ranking well in the local algorithms but it is also important to rank well in the organic results for local keywords.

eCommerce SEO

Ecommerce SEO is a specific set of skills focused on optimizing product-based websites. Since these sites tend to skew towards thousands or millions of pages, the tactics used to optimize these types of sites are based on the same best practices but require additional technical skills.

Vertical Search Engine Optimization

Since different types of ranking algorithms exist for different verticals, services were created by SEO’s to help their clients gain visibility within specific types of search engines. Some of those verticals are as follows:

  • News Optimization
  • Video Optimization
  • Image Optimization

Platform Optimization

It’s important to remember that Google isn’t the only search engine. There are other search engines that specialize in selling products, social media, or videos. Understanding how to attract attention on these other platforms is how the arrival of Platform SEO was born.

Platform SEO can include improving visibility and ranking on:

  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • Amazon
  • Quora
  • Yelp
  • and more...

Niche or Industry-Focused SEO

Some companies find success in focusing on specific industries by offering services like SEO for Attorneys, Vacation Rental SEO, or even marketing and SEO for the HVAC/Plumbing industry.

This just scratches the surface of SEO as an industry and some of the more important considerations related to marketing your business online. Be sure to visit our vacation rental resource center or blog to learn more about the intricacies of this marketing discipline.
