What do SEO Devon services involve?
In a nutshell we undertake extensive keyword research and make off-page (technical off page SEO) and on-page improvements (on age SEO). We also create high quality, new, optimised content and develop industry-relevant link building. We will advise on whether pay per click advertising would be beneficial, along with looking at your social media and how your site performs on mobile devices. We also build new websites that are SEO optimised from the off to give you the best chance of showing up quickly in search engine rankings.
Depending on your needs and budget, our SEO services follow some or all of the following strategy:
We will help you work out your SEO objectives and create a realistic strategy with you can follow. Or we can pick up bits for you. Whatever is best.
For maximum visibility we analyse your website and ensure the major search engines can easily find, crawl and index it. This also deals with website load times.
New content is needed to answer the types of searches your prospective customer makes. We will use the keyword research to optimise your existing content or create new copy.
Solid keyword research is the foundation of SEO. We will research the search queries and phrases that are best for you and the stage of your business.
We will optimise each key page for the most profitable keywords for your business and optimise your site’s URLs, images, headings and links.
We will research other website and your competitors, see what they’re doing well and assess their strengths and weaknesses. We’ll use this information to your advantage and boost your website’s rank and conversion rate.
Analytics set up
Analytics data is the best way to monitor how well a website is performing. If you haven’t already got it, we will install Google Analytics on your site and monitor the effects the SEO services are having. If you haven’t installed GA4 we’ll do that too.
If you haven’t already, we will claim and verify your Google My Business listing and then set about optimising it, so that your business is in the first three map listings for local search results. We will add SEO schema as part of the SEO work.
Some backlinks can be harmful to a website’s potential ranking. We will ask Google to ignore spammy links. We will only add relevant, quality links that help your site. Backlink analysis is part of our technical SEO audits and overall SEO process.
Link Building through high quality links, as opposed to volume, is Spotty Dog’s preferred strategy and is a great way to improve your website’s ranking.
