Five critical aspects of local SEO you have to get right

  • Mobile-friendly.
  • Quality topical content. Lots of it, ideally with a local flare.
  • Accessibility of your pages, so the search engine can find and index them.
  • Constantly growing array of quality backlinks, especially from local sources (not always easy).

Five reasons you should do local SEO

  • In most niches, people search Google to find what they need.
  • Even people who buy in-store often do their research first online.
  • Good SEO uses top-quality content to pull in potential clients.
  • SEO is still one of the most cost-effective forms of small business marketing.
  • If you don’t chase down search engine traffic, your competitor down the street will thank you.

Five technical SEO aspects you must get right

Technical SEO is about making sure your website is set up for success. It’s like suiting up for the big game, before you ever get out on the field.

  • The speed of your website must be fast.
  • Keywords must be clear in all the right places.
  • Your pages must be accessible to the search engines.
  • People must be able to easily read your website on mobile.
  • Internal linking must direct the search engines to your most important pages.

Five competitive SEO aspects you must get right

Competitive SEO is about outranking the competition. You can’t outrank them if you’re not in the game, but it takes a lot more than just suiting up to win.

  • Good reviews of your business will help.
  • You need the best content in your niche, ideally local in nature.
  • You need to get mentioned most in social media, especially from local accounts.
  • you need to get mentioned and linked to in blogs and media, and especially if you can get some local mentions.
  • You need to provide content to publish elsewhere, such as guest posts, syndication, etc.

Five reasons to hire a Canadian SEO service

  • You can pay for your SEO campaign in Canadian dollars.
  • We understand both Canadian business and the global Internet environment.
  • We want to help local Canadian businesses like you succeed on the Internet.
  • A Canadian SEO service can find local advantages that others sometimes can’t.

Five things to tell your SEO consultant

  • Tell your SEO consultant about your budget.
  • Tell your SEO consultant who and where your ideal customer is.
  • Tell your SEO consultant about your image and your branding goals.
  • Tell your SEO consultant what products or services you want most to promote.
  • Tell your SEO consultant about the keywords you want your website to rank for.

Five tips to work with an SEO consultant

  • Make sure to pay on time.
  • SEO takes time. Be patient.
  • Provide input when a content creator needs it.
  • Approve a plan of action, but be flexible. Sometimes the SEO landscape changes fast, and sometimes your SEO consultant will see a great unanticipated opportunity for you.
  • Provide as much original research (proprietary data, case studies, first-hand examples, etc.) as possible. This “collateral” forms the basis for an authoritative website that search engines like to showcase.
