Developing an SEO Strategy and then mapping the tactics into an executable plan is essential if you want to succeed online…
The best SEO companies specialize in developing Search Engine Optimization strategies and then delivering the appropriate SEO services across a wide range of business sectors including banks, insurance companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and online shopping or ecommerce websites.
Usually commencing with an SEO Audit, they should examine the full range of opportunities surrounding the four core elements of Search Engine Optimization:
- Keyword research – analyzing and selecting keywords with the best ROI
- Technical infrastructure – how a search engine accesses your web pages
- Content – both “on page” and “code based” content targeting
- Link profile – external and internal quality, range, depth and scale
The resulting report will provide a solid foundation for decision making and forward planning based on projected Return On Investment (ROI). From there, depending on the scale of the project or website, the outcomes are prioritized and placed into an implementation schedule.
When You Should Get An SEO Company On Board
For new websites, particularly ecommerce or high volume media sites, developing an SEO strategy and plan should be undertaken at the earliest possible stage and preferably before the selection of your web developers…and especially before deciding on a Content Management System (CMS), product catalog and shopping cart software. Selecting the wrong technical platform can mean the difference between online success and Search Engine invisibility.
Mature websites can often come to a stand still or what we call the “SEO Plateau Effect”. Traffic growth starts to level out and online revenues stagnate. Taking the time to investigate the issues and opportunities through the development of an SEO Strategic Plan will help you push past this “natural” barrier to new heights. Over the years the better SEO Business Analysts have worked with a wide range of industries and web technologies enabling you to tap into their experience and expertise.
Starting with an SEO Audit, the cost of developing an SEO Strategy varies widely depending on the scale of the site, current traffic levels, the competition and the complexity of the technology currently in place. Typically an SEO firm will provide an accurate estimate at the beginning based on the anticipated hours required which normally only varies if the scope of works changes or a major issue is identified. Most importantly, their fees represent a relatively small investment in relation to the growth in traffic and revenues typically achieved as a result of developing an SEO Strategy that works.
