What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving an organization's visibility and keyword rankings on Google by structuring, sharpening, and sharing the content that exists on their website.
Google Search algorithms analyze over 200 factors on every website before serving users with the most relevant and highest-quality search results available (in theory at least) for a given query. In practice, thankfully, Search Engine Optimization is almost always a lot less complicated than it sounds.
How it Works
To determine what search results (websites) it will show for the query "ann arbor seo services," for example, Google places the most weight on these rankings factors:
Latent Semantic Intent (Your Content's Relevance to the Searcher's Intent)
Keywords & Tagging for SEO
Site Performance, Structure & Usability
Backlinks, Mentions, Shares and Likes
The Good News? These are all factors within your control.
The Disclaimer? There are no magic "top spot" bullets in SEO.
What to Do
At the end of the day, to give your webpages the best chance possible at ranking in the top spots on Google, you need to do/improve the following:
STRUCTURE your content by ensuring your website's technical soundness, redirecting old and broken URLs, reorganizing the navigation structure, etc. Site load time and mobile friendliness are increasingly decisive factors that will heavily influence your site's ranking ceiling on Google.
SHARPEN your content by optimizing existing site copy based on competitive research and keyword analysis. Optimize page titles, h1s, h2s, metadescriptions, and image alt tags, and write high-quality, user-centric content that shores up your credibility as a thought leader in your industry.
SHARE your content and business profile through white-hat linkbuilding, content marketing/distribution, local search, and social media.
