Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
How to truly capture organic traffic
Being able to rank your website on the first page of Google isn’t anywhere as simple as it used to be. No amount of keyword stuffing and buying backlinks will allow you to achieve success these days. The volume of competition is too great for it to be easy. Most “SEO” companies will sell you on taking a set of keywords and promising rankings for them for a hefty sum. Nope, that’s not the way it works anymore. SEO is hard work, and 10Nine Marketing is here to set things straight.
The ability to take a set of keywords that are important to your business, and to actually rank on page one of the search engines is a challenge that demands a true game plan and a realistic evaluation of the competition. That’s what our SEO services provides: evaluation, game-planning, and execution.
Our Three Step Process
Every business can attack the challenge of ranking organically with their own unique strategy. Whether you’re a local business or a national brand with multiple locations, we offer solutions for every scenario. Here are the three basic tenants of our SEO strategy that we apply to our clients.
Many businesses need increased focus around optimizing their local presence, first and foremost. It’s commonly an area that is both under-performing and under-optimized. The Google Places for Business (formerly Google Maps) is an off-site SEO area that must be targeted, optimized, and capitalized on if you’re a local business. It’s non-negotiable, and it’s our expertise.
Another major component of our local optimization strategy is gathering relevant citations and business listings. We’ll research all of the major business listing sites within your particular region and create them. Google uses these business listings to qualify you as a real business, and the stronger the citations, the higher your local rankings can be. We’ll take care of all of them.
