Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimization. It is the practice of optimizing a website to appear higher in search results. With a well optimized website, more people will see your site in Google and other search engines. SEO includes both on-page, things like content, page speed, and site structure, as well as off-page, or changes involving what other sites link to your site.

How does Google decide what sites to rank highest?

Google has many factors in their algorithm, and most of it is a protected secret Google will never let out. The most important known ways to improve your site include having good, relevant content optimized for your important search phrases, fast loading pages, having an easy to use and organized design, and having links to your site from respected sites that are related to yours.

How long does it take to rank in Google?

It takes some time for Google to crawl your site after making any changes to improve your SEO. For lower volume keywords, which local searches often are, it can sometimes take weeks for Google to reflect the changes. For higher volume searches, the results might changes in minutes, hours, or days. Google is hard to predict, but will always see changes made eventually.

What factors are important for Local SEO?

When working with SEO for a local business website, there are some additional signals to consider over other kinds of websites. It's important to have your address and phone number listed on your website, as well as Facebook, Yelp, Google Maps, and other citation profiles. All of this information must match. Positive reviews on these profiles help, as well as backlinks from other local websites.
