Our SEO Strategy & Process of Optimization:
In order for an SEO strategy to work effectively and achieve its goals, it needs proper attention and care throughout its lifespan—and we mean from start-to-finish! That’s why we’ve outlined our own unique set of tools & resources below:
It’s important to understand that the phrase “SEO strategy” and “SEO process” are often used interchangeably. However, they are not the same thing. It’s a plan for achieving a goal, while the process of search engine optimization is a series of steps taken to achieve that goal. For example, if you’re looking to increase your organic search traffic by 10% over three months, your SEO strategy might be to implement new content marketing strategies; whereas your process of optimization would be comprised of specific actions that you take on a monthly basis (e.g., publishing blog posts).
Prepare for the Work Ahead:
A digital marketing company before starting the SEO campaign, it’s important to prepare for the work ahead. This includes thoroughly understanding your business goals, brand, audience search behavior and how to best serve them. It also means understanding your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses as well as what technical issues might arise during implementation.
Finally, you’ll want to know what content will be created or updated during the process so that you can prioritize its development based on an audience’s needs and budget constraints while keeping timelines in mind.
An Initial Audit of Your Site to Determine Any Major Technical Issues That Need to be Addressed:
An initial audit of your site to determine any major technical issues that need to be addressed. This includes:
Crawling the site to identify crawl errors and other problems with the structure of your website
Reviewing the sitemap for accuracy and completeness
Reviewing robots.txt file for any issues or mistakes (many times a bad or outdated version is being used)
Reviewing page title/meta description tags and ensuring they are accurate, descriptive, and not duplicated between pages (this helps with both Google’s indexation as well as improving click through rates)
Looking at page speed – slow loading pages can hurt SEO performance in many ways including reducing time spent on pages which negatively impacts rankings in Google’s search results. The goal here is to obtain an overall score of 90% or above on GTMetrix

Analysis of Your Content to Understand What's Working and What Needs Improvement:
The first step in developing an SEO strategy is to analyze the content on your website. This process is called auditing, and it will help you identify what’s working and what needs improvement.
Auditing involves checking for the following:
Relevance: Is the content relevant to users who are searching for it? Does it answer their questions with straightforward explanations?
Engagement: Does the copy grab readers and keep them reading, or does it quickly lose their interest?
Update frequency: How often is this information updated—once per week or once per month? Is there a time when you’re posting twice a day or less frequently than that (it’s better to post more infrequently than more frequently)? The frequency at which people can find new information about your company online has an impact on how long they’ll stay interested in visiting your site regularly.
