Blogging is more than a trend, It’s SEO 101
There are also more proactive SEO that requires more time from staff and owners. Blogging is one of the BEST tactics for search engine optimization. It constantly creates new targeted pages and content for Google, Bing, and Yahoo. When appropriate Blogs with comment systems allow users to generate more content and boost the rating of a page.
Online directories and (N.A.P)
The more sites that link to you don’t just mean more channels for traffic but also tell search engines your value to others. Every domain has a Google Page Rank from 1 to 10. The higher the rank the more value there link to your site is. Major online directories like Yelp and others have a Page Rank 10. Having your site listed across the appropriate online directories for your business is important. This is also where N.A.P comes in (Name, Address, Phone). All your listings must have all 3 formatted and match exactly. The more that don’t the less value directory listings add. This is where I ask everyone to take the YEXT.com challenge. Goto there site and enter your business and see the percent of listings your business matches. Part of our SEO work is to update any directories you are in to be accurate and to add you to any relevant ones you are not in.
Why choose Vontainment for directory listings?
Yext.com charges $199/yr to get you a 28% match rate, $449/yr for 56%, $499/yr for 100% and up to $999/yr for the full package. That is a lot.. and you pay yearly. We charge a one-time fee to correct your current listings an add you to relevant directories. We make a custom strategy to fix what is there and list you where you need to be. Other services charge you a fortune to list you everywhere even if you don’t belong or have any reason to be on that directory. Does a Nursing home really need a yelp? Businesses rarely update their name, phone or address so once done you will likely never have to update your listings. So why pay ten grand over 10 years for listings? Our average client spends $500 to $750 over 10 years to maintain their directories with us.
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 don’t work with outsiders for SEO and they keep how they work secret. They give us a set of guidelines to follow like what has been gone over on this page. 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. You can with hard work crawl up past some or all of them but it is a long hard road.
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. Call, email or book an appointment online.Vontainment Staff
