Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is a service that optimizes your website for the search engines so that it meets all of Google’s requirements and is visible in their search results. SEO is the best value, because it lists your business without incurring additional charges.
SEO is an acronym for search engine optimization. SEO is by far the most important aspect of internet marketing because it can deliver huge amounts of traffic to your store or to your online business. SEO focuses on getting a business ranked as best possible within Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Google has about 90% of the market share and we are certified Google partners and analytics experts that know how to best position and market your business for optimal rankings.
When your site shows up in Google or the other search engines naturally it’s called organic rankings. Google is essentially ‘vouching’ for the top company they list at the top of the search results. They are saying that “in our opinion, this is the best company for this industry or category”, so they are continually adding stricter controls in order to have the absolutely best suited and deserving companies at the top of their results.
Google has firm conditions that need to be adhered to in order for companies to list at the top of Google searches and this is where we come in, to achieve top organic SEO rankings.
SEO focuses on organic listings whereas Google Ads places your site on the page as long as you pay for each click-through to your site. Once your budget is exhausted your presence on the page is gone. Think of PPC or Google Ads as rented traffic and organic traffic is earned traffic. They are also more likely to convert over paid traffic. Web sites that dominate their market are routinely sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars because so much business is generated by the internet, it exceeds walk-in sales and direct marketing.
Our core specialty is SEO. We work with clients from all over Toronto, Mississauga, Kitchener Waterloo, as well as all over Ontario, USA and even Australia and parts of Europe. We have the expertise to help drive local traffic to your Toronto business or to stand out nationally.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SEO
SEO isn’t a quick race to success. SEO is a marathon, not a sprint and as much as you have been bombarded by emails soliciting your SEO business promising quick, top rankings, the reality is proper SEO takes time and is a long term marketing commitment. Not only does it take time to gain top rankings, it also takes work to hold those rankings. In addition to it taking time, Google runs several major updates to their algorithm yearly which can cause temporary disruptions to your rankings and may require changes or fixes to your website or optimization to comply with Google’s new standards.
We won’t promise you quick top rankings, but we will tell you, based on your current domain name age, history with Google and competitors in the top ten for your keywords, an estimated time to expect results and provide you reports tracking the progress as we go. The best thing we can offer you is examples of some of our client’s results so you can verify our results for yourself and don’t have to take our word for it.
