Stage 1: Server Analysis, Website Analysis, and Consultation

What’s Included:

  • Complete server configuration analysis and website design analysis.
  • Reports detailing server and website problem areas and solutions.
  • Consultation with client/client’s webmaster and/or web host, to resolve any issues that may preclude successful optimization.

Why It’s Important:

  • These stringent analyses identify any technical ranking problems, ensuring that the server and website are “search engine friendly.”
  • Search engines’ have specific configuration requirements for websites.  If a website doesn’t meet those, then it won’t get ranked; if it doesn’t rank, then it won’t be found by potential clients.

Stage 2: Keyword Research

What’s Included in Keyword Research:

  • Brainstorming and research of potential keyword terms.
  • Extensive Keyword Research to narrow down keywords based on: relevancy, searches, competitiveness, budget, and goals.
  • Report with recommendations on most effective keywords.

Why It’s Important:

  • Keyword Research is crucial for determining which keywords will deliver your best return on investment (ROI).
  • There’s simply no point investing in keywords that no one uses, that are far too competitive, are out of your budget range, or don’t meet your marketing goals.

Stage 3: Content & Website Optimization, and Link Building

What’s Included:

  • Development of Meta Tags: Title, Description, and Keyword Tag data.
  • Optimization of the textual content on existing site pages and/or creation of new pages for targeting keyword terms.
  • Integration of new pages into website, using consistent design elements.
  • Internal linking analysis and development to improve site navigation for both visitors and the search engines.
  • Manual submission of optimized pages to the search engines.

Why It’s Important:

  • Good content does more than just give your visitors information on your products and services.  It is also essential for promoting your website.
  • When deciding where a website should rank for a given keyword term, search engines strip away a lot of the visual aspects that users see.
  • Instead, they look specifically at the textual content to determine if the site is useful, information-rich, and if the pages clearly and accurately describe what the website’s theme is and what it offers.

What’s Included in Link Building:

  • Researching and writing optimized Titles and Descriptions for the link text.
  • Registering website with quality, general internet directories.
  • Tracking and following up with directories to obtain inbound links.
  • Verifying link is properly displayed and contains optimized text.
  • Manual submission, to the major search engines, of every acquired link.

Why It’s Important:

  • Top search engines, like Google, place great emphasis on Link Popularity when ranking websites.

Stage 4: Progressive Optimization (11-months)

What’s Included:

  • Checking indexing monthly to verify website pages are still indexed (included) within the search engine databases.
  • Re-submitting any dropped website pages to ensure the search engines are able to find and re-index them.
  • Running monthly ranking reports, and making necessary optimization adjustments to accommodate the search engines’ changing algorithms.

Why It’s Important:

  • For several reasons, including buffer time to filter out spam sites, the search engines have engineered the system to ensure that website changes take several months to have full effect on rankings.

This program is designed to monitor, sustain, and allow rankings to fully mature; for cost effective, long-term marketing results that continue to increase over time.
