Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
“If you’re thinking about hiring an SEO, the earlier the better. A great time to hire is when you’re considering a site redesign, or planning a new site… However, a good SEO can also help improve an existing site.”
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving a website’s exposure and rankings in search engines. Organic, or natural search results are those that are not paid for. Improving a site’s organic results ranking is critical to generating visitor traffic. We dramatically improve your site’s search engine performance. We work on existing sites in addition to new builds.
Some SEO firms use alternate methods to generate traffic instead of taking the time to perform SEO on your actual site. With some of these methods, SEO efforts aren’t being spent to improve your asset (your website). Doorways pages are one such example. Read more about doorway pages and why you should avoid them.
