SEO is an acrynim for Search Engine Optimization and is the process of increasing your webpage's organic listing in search engines.
SEO is the fourth stage in our Online Marketing Roadmap. The first three stages are Logo / Branding, website hosting, website design and then SEO.
SEO is different from Google Adwords (a PPC campagin) because it allows your business to recieve all of the traffic for a keyword during the month instead of stopping your listing when your budget runs out. This is huge!
Our purpose is to help your business identify how your customers search online and then to craft a SEO strategy for how to rank your site on the first page.
Watch the video for a quick intro on SEO.
Not all keyword phrases are the same.
Some keywords, like Fort Collins Roofing or Fort Collins Lawyers, are extremely competitive with dozens of businesses competing for the first page of Google.
Plus these keywords have extremely high Pay-Per-Click costs. For example, the keyword phrase "personal injury lawyer fort collins" has a Pay-Per-Click cost of $225!!!
Compare this to the keyword phrase "Party Supplies Fort Collins" which there is only one store specifically for party supplies (Party City) and literally no competition.
Meaning that it would take more time to get your website to the first page of Google in competitive niche's compared to un-competitive industries.
