What is SEO and can it help you?
Turn your website into your best salesman and drive traffic to your website.
To turn your website into your best salesman, you must first have an understanding of search engine optimization (SEO). ADVAN’s digital marketing team takes pride in their in-depth knowledge of SEO and how it works. We get the results you need to grow your business.
The ADVAN SEO Services Team uses our own proprietary proven SEO processes. Our internet marketing processes are based on Google sanctioned whitehat techniques to boost rankings and maximize web traffic.
SEO Explained in Plain Words
SEO stands for search engine optimization. Simply put, it is how well your website is optimized to rank on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
The way of doing business has changed and salespeople are blocked by voicemail, email campaigns are blocked by spam, ads are just plain ignored. We all want to search, find and qualify what we are looking for without being “sold”. So let’s dig deeper.
When you perform a Google search, like “SEO Companies”, you will see a list of results with the top-ranking websites showing up first and descending in the order of how Google ranks them. They ranked high by optimizing their site for that specific keyphrase or keyword.
User-friendly keyphrases are buzzwords for your potential customers.
The sites ranking number one in Google got there because of the content on their site and their team of SEO gurus. Google has decided they truly know what they’re talking about.
They’re providing relevant, useful information on this topic. And it’s making their users happy, which is, in turn, making the Search Engines happy. Pushing their site up.
While getting to the top of that long Google results list can be difficult, ADVAN knows what it takes to make it possible.
What is Organic Traffic? And Why You Want It!
“YES! We want to be at the top of Google search results! But can’t I just pay for ads for this?” No. Paid Ads (PPC) and Search Engine rankings (SEO) are different.
Pay per click ads can get expensive, very quickly. For PPC, you pay for search terms, that cost anywhere from pennies to many dollars per click. In plain words, paid ads are like renting a home.
You pay recurring costs that arise due to factors outside of your control. You’re renting that ad space but it’s not truly yours. If a competitor comes in with a higher quality score and/or bid-offer, their ad will overrank yours. Hire the ADVAN team of talented web designers near me.
Think of SEO like purchasing a home. You take out a mortgage (an investment) that has long-term value (equity) and full ownership to show for it. SEO gives your website trust, credibility. You earn your ranking spot in search engines, and it can only be taken away if a competitor earns that spot above you.
What we do to improve your SEO rankings:
Adding Equity with Content Marketing
Once a page is created, it exists forever. Congratulations, you just added equity to your SEO investment! While having a large website, with a lot of pages significantly helps your SEO rankings, each page still needs to be optimized for a specific keyphrase/topic.
The secret to creating content that is SEO optimized is for the content to please both the search engines and your site visitors. Our team of SEO experts provides your site with quality content, keywords, and links to make Internet users happy. We know how to do what it takes to provide the results searchers want. The ADVAN team understands that to make search engines happy your site needs to make users happy.
Making Renovations with On-Page SEO
The on-page SEO factors go deeper than your site’s content. When you renovate your new house, you don’t just paint the walls and say job done. You patch the holes, maybe replace the carpet, fix the trim, and maybe even change the light fixtures.
On-page SEO is this deep level of your site’s HTML and it’s technical SEO. It’s optimizing your title tags, meta descriptions, sub-headings, internal links, image names, and ALT tags.
Our experts know how to strategically place your SEO keywords and phrases on your page while avoiding over-optimization. Because Google and other search engines will penalize your site if you attempt to use keywords too many times through the content. We understand how to keep your on-page SEO well balanced and relevant.
Friendly Neighbors with Off-Page SEO
Neighbors who care for their homes as much as you do increases the quality of your neighborhood. These friendly neighbors are your off-page SEO.
Digging deeper into what is off-page SEO, off-page SEO includes your backlinks. You know, those friendly neighborhood websites linking back to your website.
Though you may not have direct control over the off-page factors of your SEO and who links back to you, ADVAN knows the best practices to improve your chances of having these factors work out in your favor.
Our team knows how to get quality backlinks from neighbors who care for their site as much as you do. We get that the more relevant and interesting your content is, the more likely others will be to link to your content and share it on social media. And the more users trust your content, the more the search engines will as well.
