Once we’ve learned about your business and your competitive advantage, we help you develop an actionable plan to optimize your site for search engines. This means making the necessary changes to your existing website copy to adhere to best SEO practices, including proper header structure, cross-linking between pages, incorporating the right keyword phrases (identified in step one), and ensuring all technical aspects are in place. Meta descriptions, page titles, canonical tags, and appropriate redirects will be established, and all public-facing content will be submitted to Google for quick indexing.
SEO Starts With Speed; Do You Know Your Hosting Needs?
Google has indicated site speed (and as a result, page speed) is one of the signals used by its algorithm to rank pages. Research has shown that Google might be specifically measuring time to the first byte as when it considers page speed. In addition, a slow page speed means that search engines can crawl fewer pages using their allocated crawl budget, and this could negatively affect your indexation.
Types Of Hosting And When To Use
Shared hosting is exactly what it sounds like. With a shared hosting account, your site is located on the same server as a bunch of other websites. This type is best for small businesses servicing a local community with a mostly static informational site.
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. It is the most well-balanced among the different types of web hosting. A VPS server is still a shared environment, but the way it is set up is very dissimilar. It’s great for more advanced projects or demanding visual or interactive sites.
Semi-dedicated and dedicated, These are meant for only the largest of projects. Very few clients will need to go this route, but we can help if this is the option needed.
A new option that has become available is cloud hosting. Provided by companies such as Google, Amazon Web Services, and our favorite Digital Ocean. These provide scalable, affordable options for small businesses. Their low cost and ability to provide lighting fast sites help make top SEO ranking easier to obtain.

The Search Engine Optimisation Promise
We are not going to tell you we can make you #1 on Google or even put you on the first page. The truth is anyone who says that is lying. Search engines, especially Google how their algorithms rank, only giving us guidelines and best practices. There are variables that we and you can never know. SEO also takes a level of participation from the client; the more participation the more success (Like Blogging). There is also a monetary component as well as seniority. If you are new and have 10 competitors with 20 years of online presence; spending 30x your SEO and ad budget can be much harder to displace.
We don’t believe in making promises we can’t keep, and we will research and let you know exactly where you stand your options, odds, and possibilities. We work hard to put our clients at #1 if we can. It costs nothing to set up a meeting and let us see what your competition is and where you stand.
