My SEO services include: ORGANIC SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION: Whether you need to focus on a strategy to strengthen your local SEO presence or boost your organic results with a national SEO campaign, getting results to increase your revenue is what our search optimization team is focused on—from strategy to implementation. LOCAL SEO AND LOCAL MAPS: I offer both organic and paid local search services to help fortify your local listings in the search engines, so you will be found in your local market. SOCIAL MEDIA OPTIMIZATION AND MARKETING: As Facebook and other social networks become more and more valuable, our expert social media marketers can help craft a strategy that takes advantage of Facebook advertising services and more. SEARCH-OPTIMIZED DESIGN AND CONVERSION OPTIMIZATION: I can tweak your entire website – or even build one from scratch – that will be search engine friendly and convert leads into action. SEO STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT: Not sure what you need, but have an SEO budget? I’ll work with you to define a custom needs assessment and strategy for long-term search marketing success. OPTIMIZING YOUR WEBSITE: SEO (Search Engine Optimization) involves optimizing a website's coding, presentation, and structure to ensure that your website content is easily indexed by search engine robots. In addition to making your website more search engine friendly, we may recommend adding unique quality content to your site, improving usability, navigation and the design of your website. KEYWORD RESEARCH: The first step to implementing a successful SEO campaign is performing keyword research. I identify relevant high value keyword phrases that will increase traffic, target your demographic and potentially convert at a higher rate. I also take into consideration the consumer buying process for your industry to identify keywords that are utilized in the beginning and end of the buying process.

LINK BUILDING: Link building is an essential part of SEO. Google’s algorithm indexes and analyzes links from every web page that they can find throughout the Internet. They use a complex algorithm to determine your website’s topical relevance and trust factor. A key indicator to Google of a website’s value is that other sites are linking to it. The amount, quality and topical relevance of the websites that link to you, as well as the text they use in those links (anchor text), are a heavily weighted indicator that Google uses to determine the value of your website and what it is about. Link building can involve many different techniques, a few of which include content distribution and syndication, press release optimization, directory submissions, content exchanges, contacting webmasters and influential bloggers, widget creation, social bookmarking, creating link-worthy content, link bait, video distribution, viral video creation, widget creation, badge creation… and we could keep going. REPORTING: Once optimization is complete, I run reports again every 30 days to check on the progress of your Website – you will be updated on these monthly ranking report results via e-mail..
