What Is SEO?
SEO is also referred to as search engine optimization. It is the method by which a specialist in this field improves a website’s visibility in the search results. In the simplest terms, a SEO Agency is tasked with moving your website up in the search results, preferably to page 1 of Google.
There are, however, many factors which may affect where your website shows up in the search results. Google uses what are known as “algorithms” to help them decide where to place your site. That being said, Google can make or break your business on the web. One of the things you should be aware of when hiring a SEO Company in New York is the method they use to rank your website. Some “Specialists” take shortcuts to game the system and get quick results. This is also known as “Black Hat SEO”.
This Is How We Do It
Well, to start off with, an SEO Agency should audit your website to determine what problems may exist, be they technical or pertaining to user experience. Some examples of corrections that can be made are; improving poorly written content, deleting duplicate content, fixing slow loading speed, making sure your website is optimized for mobile, and that Google can properly crawl it, to name a few.
After the audit is completed, your SEO Company in New York should give you the results and explain what needs to be done in order to improve your search status.
From there you can plan a course of action, depending on your budgetary and time constraints. This plan of action and ensuing process should always be transparent and your SEO Specialist should be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns regarding it.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Long Does It Take For SEO To Work?
The results of good SEO work can be seen anywhere from several days of implementation, to several months. The length of time it takes to see results depends on various factors, not the least of which is the competitiveness of the keyword you are trying to rank for. A good example of this might be trying to rank for a keyword like “personal injury attorney NYC”. This keyword, by nature, will be very competitive, based on the fact that it is a popular search term which can result the acquisition of high value cases. Lawyers will naturally pay a premium to rank for such a keyword, hence its competitiveness. As a 5 Star Rated NYC SEO Company, iDesignYours works diligently to get your site on page 1 as quickly as possible.
How Do Longtail Keywords Play Into SEO?
A longtail keyword is a search term that includes more than one word and is more specific in nature. Here is an example of the difference between a keyword vs. a longtail keyword. A general keyword could be a term such as “lawyer”. A longtail version of this could be, “divorce lawyer in Orlando”. Adding a location makes the search more specific and thereby narrows down the competition. A million people across the country may be searching for the general term “lawyer”, while those living in Orlando and planning a divorce will be more likely to search for the term, “divorce lawyer in Orlando”. The longtail keyword also helps define user intent. At iDesignYours, we specialize in finding the right keywords for your business, and making sure that you rank for them.
How Does Mobile Responsiveness Affect Your SEO?
Google has placed a lot of weight on the mobile responsiveness of your website when it comes to SEO. This is due to the increased volume of searches performed on mobile, as compared to desktop. So in order to keep up with accepted SEO practices, your website should be configured properly to fit the screens of different mobile devices without any glitches. Furthermore, having a mobile friendly website improves User Experience, thereby improving SEO.
What Are Backlinks?
Backlinks, since the Dawn of Google, have been considered one of, if not the most important factor when it comes to ranking a website in the search results. This is because if a website with a high domain authority (great value and a lot of trust in the eyes of Google) takes the time to put a link in their website leading back to yours, then the perception of Google is that your site must have value. Valuable sites rank higher in the results because they provide a better search experience for the searcher, who is Google’s first concern.
How Will A SEO Company In New York Acquire Backlinks For Your Website?
Directories, guest posting, “Guestographics” and backlink outreach are just some of the ways an experienced search engine optimization specialist will exploit to get your website relevant backlinks.
Getting backlinks from these sources has a two pronged benefit; you will get more recognition from google by having the links (if they are good and not spam), and you will get some traffic from them as well, which also helps your SEO.
How Much Does SEO Cost?
It’s a good question with many answers. In my opinion, the complexity of the job and the experience of the SEO Agency you hire will play a role in the price. An SEO Specialist can make anywhere from $75 to $150 per hour, and there are also monthly packages which can be negotiated. I’ve seen SEO’s with fees as high as 50k / mo., but this can mean they have a dedicated staff of ten people working on your project for 40 hours each a week.
It’s probably safe to say you will be spending $3,000 or more a month for a competent SEO that will deliver a measurable result.
The most important thing to consider when it comes to pricing is for the client to walk away knowing they got the result agreed upon from the outset, and to feel the SEO Specialist they hired really went the extra mile to provide value above and beyond the expectation of the client.
