What the free SEO for small businesses includes
optimizing the code of your website
A website’s core structure is all about making sure search engines can crawl and index all of your content and in the right way. This means having clean HTML code, properly structured URLs (with no parameters, if at all possible), the right HTTP status codes for the right kind of webpages (so a Not Found page results in a 404 code, not a 200 or 302), proper XML sitemaps, etc.
Essentially this is everything that goes on under the hood of your website. It’s what makes your website function. Optimizing the structure ensures search engines can find and easily see the data of your website. It also helps make your website load faster and results in a better user experience.
optimizing the content of your website
When search engines can crawl your site’s content, that doesn’t mean they know what your content is about. The content aspect of SEO looks at the various elements of text, images, videos, and links to ensure it can be properly interpreted by search engines.
This means having optimized title tags and headlines, properly structured content, sufficient topical focus on a single page, including the right semantic signals, etc. Writing great SEO-friendly content is now more important than ever.
Real client, real results.

Our time-tested and proven 10 step SEO process
See exactly what we do during an SEO campaign that gets you to outrank your competitors in search engines. Our SEO process is industry leading and proven to work. Stop paying companies for leads and start generating them for yourself on your own website.
Step 0: Website design
laying down the foundation
Step 1: Onboarding
getting to know your business
Step 2: Competitor research
investigating your competition
Step 3: Keyword research
what are people actually searching for
Step 4: Website sitemap
creating a content silo
Step 5: Technical website audit
finding and fixing technical errors
The fifth SEO step is where the research ends and the action begins. Now that we know everything we can about your business, your competitors, the keywords we want to rank for, and the new website structure, it’s time to dive into your website.
We run a full technical audit on your website to find any technical issues that may have been hindering your search engine performance. Our technical audit checks your website for more than 45 different items, including title tags, meta descriptions, and broken internal links to name a few.
Once we run the technical audit and understand the technical issues of your website we begin correcting those issues. This can take anywhere from a few hours to a week or more depending on the size of your website.
Step 6: On-page optimization
optimizing the content of your website
Now that your website’s technical issues have been resolved we can move on to step six in our SEO process: on-page optimization. We’ll begin optimizing the pages of your website. This includes restructuring the text, adding appropriate heading tags, ensuring images have alt attributes, and much more. The length of this process again depends on the size of your website.
Then we implement our new content silo. For these new pages, we focus on a single keyword per page. We create content around those single keywords that is optimized for search engines. This includes structured text and some multimedia like images and videos.
Step 7: Analytics integration
gathering the data
Now that the website is clear of all technical issues and we’ve optimized the entire website it’s time to integrate our analytics channels in our seventh SEO step. These channels include tools like Google Analytics and Google Search Console. This allows us to begin tracking everything that happens on the website and in search engines. The analytics we track include user interaction, user acquisition, keywords, and search engine ranks to name a few.
The reason we wait to integrate these channels until this point is to help with the SEO. When you integrate Google Search Console, Google will begin crawling and indexing your website. We don’t want Google to crawl and index a broken and poorly-optimized website, so we wait until we’ve fixed everything and optimized the website before integrating. This allows the website to be crawled and indexed correctly the first time.
We also create and optimize a Google My Business listing if you don’t already have one. It’s free to set up and helps tremendously when it comes to generating local traffic.
Step 8: Month 1 report
just getting started
Step 9: Authority building
building a backlink portfolio
Starting on month 2 of the campaign, we begin building the authority of your website. We do this by gaining backlinks from relevant, high authority sites. For a local business, we begin our authority building by creating local citations. While most, if not all, of these local citation backlinks are no-follow links, they help secure your business as a trusted local business with a healthy portfolio of listing backlinks.
From month 3 and forward we focus on guest blog posts. We reach out to high-authority relevant blogs to post guest posts on. From these websites we are able to secure many powerful backlinks that help increase the authority of your website.
