Our Foundational SEO Services Include:

Two Meetings with our SEO Specialists

Begin your Foundational SEO journey with a one-on-one meeting with a dedicated SEO Specialist who will tailor a strategy specifically for your site’s needs. Throughout the partnership, your Specialist will guide your SEO improvements, ensuring that every action aligns with your business goals. As the partnership concludes, you’ll have a final meeting to review your accomplishments and set the stage for your continued SEO success.

Comprehensive SEO Audit Report

We will begin by conducting a comprehensive site audit to assess your website’s current SEO health, identifying both strengths and areas for improvement. Your personalized report will feature an SEO health score, providing a clear snapshot of where your site stands, along with a detailed list of high-priority issues such as broken links, sitemap discrepancies, and canonicalization errors. This report will serve as a roadmap, guiding the strategic enhancements needed to boost your site’s search engine visibility.

Structured Data Audit

We will conduct a detailed structured data audit to meticulously evaluate whether your web pages are marked up appropriately, and how effectively they are using vocabulary to enhance search visibility. This audit will identify opportunities to implement or improve structured data, ensuring that search engines can better understand and display your content in rich results. By optimizing this aspect, we aim to enhance your site’s discoverability and improve indexing.

On-Page SEO Review of Core Pages

We will meticulously evaluate the
on-page SEO elements of the core pages on your website to ensure they are fully optimized for search engines. This detailed analysis will cover critical components such as title tags, meta descriptions, image alt text, and H tags, among others. By optimizing these elements, we aim to enhance your site’s relevance and readability, which can significantly improve its ranking and visibility in search results.

Technical SEO Review

We’ll dive deep into the crucial technical elements that can make or break your site’s performance in search results, including site speed optimization, mobile-friendliness, and robust security features like HTTPS. Our team will review your site’s architecture, look for ways to enhance its crawl efficiency, and ensure it’s perfectly poised for top search engine rankings.

Google Business Profile Audit

If you already have a Google Business Profile, our team will conduct a thorough audit to guarantee it’s fully optimized for maximum visibility in local search results. We’ll review every element, from the accuracy of your business information to the richness of your content, including photos and customer reviews. This detailed review ensures your profile is not only complete but also compelling enough to attract and engage local customers effectively.

Structured Data Implementation

We’ll implement advanced schema markup across the core pages of your website to ensure that your content, products, and services are easily understood and contextualized by Google. By integrating this structured data, we enhance your site’s ability to communicate with search engines, boosting its visibility in rich search results and enhancing user engagement. This strategic implementation will make your website more attractive to search algorithms, potentially increasing traffic and conversions.

Image Optimization

We’ll fine-tune your images by optimizing file names and alt texts for better search relevance, and compressing sizes to accelerate page loads without compromising quality. With these enhancements, your images will not only rank higher in search results but also provide a smoother, faster browsing experience for your visitors.

And so much more!

Our comprehensive SEO audit services go beyond the standard checks. We fine-tune your site’s accessibility and indexing through robots.txt optimization, create and submit XML sitemaps, and conduct thorough canonicalization analysis to prevent duplicate content issues. Additionally, we optimize link redirects, restructure and enhance internal linking, refine header tags for clarity and SEO impact, and improve the user experience by optimizing 404 error pages. These detailed adjustments are designed to significantly boost your site’s SEO performance.

Pricing starts at $1,000 per website.
