          Search engine optimization (SEO) helps businesses drive visits to their website through organic search traffic. Given that the top organic search results receive a third of the clicks, a decline in ranking could be detrimental for your business. Implementing SEO best practices on your website will help to ensure that your web content is seen by as many potential customers as possible. The more visitors you have, the better your chances are of converting those visits into sales!

          Local search engine optimization (SEO) helps local businesses gain visibility by optimizing their local business listings for local search. A business that leverages local SEO will include its address, phone number, local opening times, and exact location in the form of a local citation. The goal is to rank for local searches which are usually performed by people in a specific geographical region looking for a business near them.

          We typically see results within the first 30 to 60 days, but when it comes to SEO, there are many factors at play. It's important to remember that SEO is a long-term strategy and results may not come as fast at you wish.

          This depends on the complexity and size of a redesign and if eCommerce is needed. On average, it takes around 14-18 weeks from the web design intensive stage to launch.

          If your website experiences the following issues: it’s not responsive on all devices, has a slow loading speed, the design appears old and tired, users don’t spend long on the site, sales are stagnant, or your business is going through a rebranding - your website needs a redesign to boost your brand awareness and sales.

          Semantic search launched in 2013 with the release of Google's Hummingbird update. Since then, Google's search engine has become more complex. The integration of machine learning, with RankBrain, and NLP, with BERT, has enabled the search engine to better understand the context of a query and deliver more personalized and targeted results. Semantic SEO is the process of creating machine-readable content using structured data and linked open data to help search engines better understand your content.

          On-page SEO is the practice of optimizing individual web pages in order to rank higher and earn more relevant traffic in search engines. On-page SEO refers to both the content and HTML source code of a page that can be optimized, as opposed to off-page SEO which refers to links and other external signals. From meta tags to page content, website structure, and HTML, on-page optimization services are focused on making your website more visible to search engines.

          Structured data refers to any organized data that conforms to a certain format, such as information in a relational database. When information is highly structured and predictable, search engines can more easily organize and display it in creative ways. Structured data involves using a piece of code that is laid out in a specific format easily understood by search engines. The search engines read the code and use it to display search results in a more dynamic way.

How it Works

During the audit process, we’ll determine your website’s strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities and find the SEO issues that influence your rankings. Then we’ll deliver an SEO audit report with actionable recommendations. Finally, you can choose to have one of our specialists implement the changes or you can do so yourself.

Step 1: Site Audit

We’ll conduct a site audit and generate a report for you. Your report will feature your site’s current SEO health score and a list of high-priority issues that may be impacting your site’s SEO. This may include broken links, sitemap issues, missing title tags, meta descriptions, image alt text, H tags, etc.

Step 2: Action Plan & Project Proposal

Following our analysis and audit, we’ll discuss our findings with you on a call to help you understand the actions that need to be taken on your site. Your business can then decide if you want to fix these issues in-house or, for an additional charge, leverage SMA’s expert SEO team. If you choose to move forward with us, we will ask for access to your website so we can start the SEO Cleanup.

Note: Timeframe of completion depends on how many errors exist on your site.

Step 3: Send Off

Once we’ve addressed all of your errors, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive second audit showcasing the work that has been done to improve your site’s SEO health score. Then, you can move forward with your digital marketing efforts knowing you have a clean, error-free SEO foundation.
