SEO Essentials - Building A Strong Foundation

“You can practice shooting eight hours a day, but if your technique is wrong, then all you become is very good at shooting the wrong way. Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.”

- Michael Jordan

Let's take a moment to return to some SEO basics and make sure we have the right technique - so we don't get good at doing SEO the wrong way.

This meeting will focus on SEO fundamentals so our pages will rise through the SERPs.

Step 1: Solid Foundation=on-site SEO & brand

Is your website setup properly for basic SEO? This includes branding, user friendly design, and contact data.

Content, keywords, meta data, this all goes into the foundation of your search engine optimization efforts.

Step 2: Build upon your foundation with off-site SEO

How are you using citations, profile sites, link building?

If you get this wrong, Google will think your site is spam and you could drop out of the search engine results pages (SERPs).

Step 3: Boost SEO with on- & off-site enhancements

Is there any dynamic content on your site? Why should Google or anyone else come back to your website after visiting it once?

Reviews, articles, blog posts, white papers, and more can add dynamic value to your site and keep people - and search engines - coming back.
