Local SEO works in Seattle following a proven growth path where everything targets the Seattle location. What I mean by that is an online business that needs good rankings plus local visibility. When the business website shows up in queries made in or near the location (Seattle WA), the search algorithm must serve the company site first instead of its competitors.
The Organic traffic source is what we call 'SEO' or 'Natural' (search) channel. It is the traffic source that is way cheaper than other sources of traffic and evergreen (if worked the right way it generates long-term traffic without further intervention). For Seattle, every landing page built for the city of Seattle needs search and conversion optimization. It also requires the location signals that position the content in the Seattle periphery.
With all the above in place. We have the right base to grow something extraordinary. The website will start receiving local Seattle traffic exiting the anonymity phase for good. Locals will start visiting, requesting more details, hitting the phone lines, or subscribing to the website buttons. All the above conversion elements are growth metrics, and we welcome them. I offer to grow your Seattle site from a cheaper and reliable traffic source, the search engines.
Enough with the technical stuff. Your Seattle website can take your business to the next level, and I am the person who can grow your organic traffic considerably.
I do not require a lot of things. I need to have a detailed conversation with the business owner about the plan of activities and if there is an online strategy already in it. If not, we need to integrate it in some sort, define the marketing actions, budget and expectations.
Here are some early steps and my role:
I gave a full, yet not detailed, growth plan, as the scope of this page is to share the general way to grow a website. There are more steps intermittently and little fixes that my clients learn when working with me. I do not have any 'secret' method to rank a website in Seattle WA, other than using the current tools and strategies.
Here are briefly the services I provide: Search Engine Optimization, Landing Page Optimization, Google Adwords (Paid Search), Social Media Marketing, YouTube Marketing (Video Optimization), and Mobile Marketing.
In which cases does my method deliver the best results? My performance tops up when I have full control over the client website. It is achievable with small businesses and obviously not with medium to large enterprises. In the latter cases, I prepare beforehand a list of suggestions, and all the fixes come from your developers.
I prefer not to. I am aware of most other SEO providers do, but it is not my policy to lose control of what I do on a client website. I like to keep the highest quality of services and simply get the job done without any risk.
That is a question that mostly comes early. The only way to answer it is by examining all the project requirements, strengths and weaknesses. It is a matter of know-how and work hours. I have no SEO packages that one can choose according to its budget. The sad truth is that those packages never work as they offer a placebo not a cure to a problem. Analyzing what a particular business needs is the only way to suggest a solution for its growth.
In Seattle WA, I optimize websites in the following principal cities or areas, plus their local listings in Google Maps.
