SEO Charleston

Are you searching for ways to get more clients for your business or more targeted traffic to your website? Have you tried numerous marketing efforts that just haven’t produced the ROI you had expected? Are you still depending on old marketing methods that are no longer working?

Showing up on the first page of Google is critical in todays market with the majority of users never even clicking to the second page of a search. Some search phrases get so much traffic that capturing a first page search result can literally transform a business. Whether you live in Charleston SC or San Diego CA we can help you rank organically in Google.

What is SEO?

Most people that have a business with an online presence have heard of SEO which stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is the process of getting traffic to an entity through organic (free) search results. Websites that show up on the first page of Google have a massive advantage over their competition. Research shows that over 90% of traffic never leaves the first page of the search results. This means that if you are not on page one you might as well be invisible. Close to 70% of the clicks on page one go to the websites showing in the top 5 positions.

More than 90% of search traffic only visits results found on page one of Google.

How Google decides who it will feature on the first page of the results can range from how much Google “trusts” your website, to how many people are talking about and linking to your website. Other factors include how much traffic a site gets, how long a person stays on a website, the content on a page and how it is structured, the key phrases that link to the site, and where those links are coming from. These all have a role to play in deciding where Google thinks your site should rank for a given phrase.

Are all SEO companies the same?

If you have had a business for any length of time then you probably have received many emails from people claiming they can get you page one results in Google. If an SEO company can't show you actual results from active clients that they are currently ranking then run the other direction as fast as you can!! 

While there are many reputable SEO companies out there, some get results using methods that are risky and could get you completely banned from Google and other engines.It is important to get an understanding of exactly what you are being offered and learn a little about the strategy that will be used to achieve those results.

We were recently speaking with a potential client who already had another SEO company he was working with. He showed us a list of first page results that they had captured for him but with a little research we found that the phrases they ranked for him were very low competition and actually got 0 searches a month. That is right … the phrases were not being searched at all by anyone yet they made the client think that they had done something great for them in order to continue billing them for SEO services.
