Once the site is developed, we move on to the meat of it. This starts with keyword research.
It all starts with keyword research. We need to know what people are typing into the search bar for Google, Bing and Yahoo. We use several sources to come up with our list of keywords and have had success with them by optimizing our clients’ websites with them.
We include keywords on each page of a website. We put them in the title tags, and meta descriptions. If you know SEO, you probably heard that if you overuse keyword phrases, you can get penalized by Google. We want you to know that we don’t do this, and always follow Google’s best practices when it comes to optimizing your website. It’s why we are the #1 Houston, Texas SEO company.
We research what your competitors have been doing, so we can use what works for them, but make it better. It may not sound fair, but it’s the nature of a competitive industry. Many competitors do this, and it’s likely been done to you. We do not seek to hurt competitors’ businesses, though. We simply just want to make yours better.
We look at the type of content that your competitors have, and what is ranking better than yours and why. We then take that information and research to see what more can be added, so we can do more with it.
We also look at backlinks to see how many they have and where they are coming from. We can then reach out to those websites to see if they would be willing to link back to your site as well. The more links you get to your site, the more popular Google believes you are, so they are more likely to rank you highly in SERPs.
Since we’re on link building, let’s discuss this more now. Link building is important to any SEO campaign, especially in Houston, Texas. Google wants to show websites that are considered worthy. Worthiness is rated on how many other websites link to them.
We start working on a link building campaign simply by creating the best content possible for your site. We include images, videos, and long, fresh content. We give people all of the information they are searching for and more when they turn to Google. This is what keeps them on the site. They have no reason to go anywhere else because they have everything they need on your site. Since you’ve done such a good job impressing the user, there’s high likelihood that person will convert.
Not only is the content for conversions, but when you have really good content on your site, other websites want to link to it. This is especially true if you have something no one else does, and you deserve credit for it. Sometimes, we will brainstorm with you about data that we can pull from your reports that can be used to show consumers how your products and services help. This authoritative content can do wonders for your reputation online. You become the source for the latest information, and that’s something that people want to extend to their followers online.
We also reach out to other websites in different ways to establish connections with them. We email them or call them to ask if there is any content they would like to see on their site and if it would be possible for a link back to your site be included. If there is, our professional writers create the content, and then we publish it on that site with a link to your site.
We can also promote your content to sites. We can ask them if they find it useful and if they would consider linking back to the site with it. If the content is good enough and we reach out to the right websites, they may accept, and you’ll get another backlink.
We only use Google’s best practices when it comes to link building. We never pay for links or do link exchanges. We don’t have link building networks. These are punishable by Google, and it will not be done by our SEO firm in Houston, Texas.
Social Media Management
Social media matters to SEO. Some people do not agree with it, but we know it matters because we’ve seen how much influence it has on it. When our posts get high engagement, shares, and comments, that article ends up performing better in SERPs. Remember, Google wants to share what everyone loves, so if social media metrics show that people love an article you have on your site, it will get ranked higher.
We also believe that social media is another source for website traffic and conversions. Billions of people use social media every single day, and they will follow business pages, especially those recommended by people they follow. Many will go to the business’ website when they are interested in what it is offering. People are also now using Messenger to connect with businesses. This means that if your business is available, you have the chance of having a new customer by simply being available.
