Frequently Asked Questions

Local SEO is a type of search engine optimization strategy that helps a business be more visible (better rankings) in local search results on Google. If you have a physical location or serve a specific geographic area local SEO can help you.

Our SEO Platform operates in association with, but independently from, your website. Therefore, traditional SEO on-page optimization that is labor intensive is not required. The SEO Platform system creates a site within your site that is rich in exclusive, relevant content, perfectly optimized and supplied with keyword relevant inbound links.

All of our clients want to know when to expect SEO results. Once keywords are approved and the SEO Platform is properly installed on a website, most of our clients see rankings start to improve within weeks – especially if they have no rankings or very poor rankings. With that said, we ask our clients to give the system 3 to 5 months so that the Local SEO services work can reach its full potential. It takes time for Google to reassess your website and determine where you should now rank based on the work our SEO firm has been doing to your website.

Our simplest starter Local SEO Plan starts around $300/month.

Clients achieve the best results when they commit to their keywords for at least 3 to 4 months. At this time, our SEO firm can assess each keyword’s ranking, the action your website is getting as a result, and determine if alternate keywords could be better. Local SEO works best as a long-term strategy and changing keywords too frequently is detrimental, and can even cause a negative outcome.

Yes. We approach SEO/SEM from a keyword perspective and first help you find the best keywords to meet the website’s performance expectations. Once these keywords are determined and approved by you, we create new pages in order to integrate the target keywords into your website. This added keyword content helps raise your website’s authority when indexed by the Search Engines and contributes to achieving rankings for the keyword phrases we target. The professional writers at our SEO firm research content topics prior to writing the first draft. Local SEO services does not include changing the content on your existing pages (ex. homepage or service pages).

This local SEO service focuses on Organic search results where your website needs to earn its rankings. PayPerClick provides near-instant traffic because you are bidding on your placement in Google and paying a “cost per click” each time a visitor goes to your website. PPC is a good short-term (although often pricey) solution when you need leads right away. SEO is a better long-term solution when you are wanting to develop a steady affordable source of traffic to your website.

This Local SEO Package is designed specifically for small businesses with a limited budget, small website, and a local market in 1-2 cities. This plan is for businesses with limited time to be involved in the SEO process. It’s also good for businesses that can give preapproval for new content. Ask to see our SEO Comparison if you aren’t sure if this is the right SEO fit for you.
