We’ll also analyze your backlink profile and disavow any backlinks that could be harming your authority in Google’s eyes.

Step 2: Keyword Research

Identifying relevant search queries is the cornerstone of an effective SEO campaign. More specifically, we will identify a large number of “longtail” keywords, which are low-competition search terms that you can rank for quickly. Targeting longtail keywords is the fastest way to drive organic search volume.

Over time, we’ll move to capture broader, higher-volume search terms as well.

Step 3: Competitive Analysis

Once we’ve identified the campaign’s target keywords, we’ll analyze the webpages ranking on the first page for each of those keywords. The data we glean from those competing pages will drive the content creation and backlink strategy throughout the campaign.

Step 4: Content Creation

Quality content is vital to the success of an SEO campaign. We’ll increase your site’s relevance for your target keywords, improve your internal linking structure, and generate original relevant content with blog posts and pillar pages.

Step 5: Earning Backlinks

Links from other sites are a key indicator of your site’s authority.

We’ll create content that links to your important pages and pitch it to relevant websites. We’ll also look for unlinked brand mentions and broken links that can be pointed to your pages.

Step 6: Local SEO

Ranking locally for important keywords involves claiming and verifying your Google My Business listing, creating and correcting local business directory listings, and optimizing your target pages for local keywords.

Step 7: Report Results

We’ll review and report your keyword rankings and organic search traffic growth monthly and adjust our strategy as necessary. Your account manager will keep in close contact with you to answer any questions or address any concerns as they arise.
