Our local SEO services are designed to help Maryland businesses with a defined service area such as a few counties or a region. You may have one or more brick-and-mortar locations, or you’re a service provider who travels to people’s homes or commercial businesses.
If you’ve ever Googled a service yourself, or even the services your business provides, you’ve likely seen 3 very local results and a map at the top. That’s called the local 3-pack. Our goal is to get your Maryland business listed there and keep you there with ongoing local SEO marketing efforts. We also want to have you show up in the next 7 results, which are organic search results.
Some of the local SEO marketing best practices include:
- Rewriting and optimizing the content on every page for local search.
- Updating the URLs, title tags, description tags, and image alt text for local search.
- Making sure your Name, Address, and Phone Number (NAP) are on your website, and accurate.
- Claiming and optimizing your Google Business Profile/Google My Business.
- Claiming your business profile and optimizing it in all of the online directories related to your industry.
- Optimizing image size and load speed of your website.
- Continually adding new content with helpful, informative blogs.
- Getting you legitimate backlinks without any Black Hat techniques that Google would penalize you for.
- And more, depending on your business.
We take the time to get to know your Maryland business, and we review your competition to help find opportunities where you can beat them in the SEO arena. We do intensive keyword research and find the phrases people are actually using when they look for the products and services you provide.
Our organic SEO services are where SEO all began. These services can be for larger Maryland companies who have a regional, or even nationwide reach, such as an e-commerce company that ships products. It can be harder to rank on the first page of search results unless you’re a very large company because Google tends to stuff the first page with larger companies and industry websites.
Most small businesses will benefit more from local SEO marketing services, but we can discuss your goals with you and develop an SEO strategy that will best serve you.
We provide affordable small business website design and website redesign services to our Maryland SEO customers. We do not build websites unless they are optimized for SEO because we feel that’s like buying a fancy car, but letting it sit in the garage with no gas. It won’t take you anywhere unless you fuel up. If you simply want a website that’s a glorified business card, we are not the company for you.
Some of our clients have never had a website, so it’s easy to build a WordPress website that’s SEO-ready. Other clients have an existing website, but it’s outdated, slow to load, filled with broken links, or hard to update.
In those situations, it may be easier and more cost-effective to build a new, optimized website rather than try and remodel the old one. We take your existing content and ideas and do keyword research and industry research before writing new content that makes it easy for Google to understand exactly what you do and what your service area is.
We may suggest adding new pages or deleting old ones based on our research. We highly suggest that you utilize our SEO content writing services for the best results and quickest turnaround. Most business owners don’t have the writing skills or time to write the text themselves. You have a final review of all text before it goes live on your site.
As a Maryland small business owner, your area of expertise is running your business and providing quality goods and services for your customers. You probably don’t have the time, the knowledge, or the desire to keep your business website running smoothly. But we do.
We specialize in creating functional, attractive, and SEO-friendly WordPress websites for our clients. And to keep your website secure, loading quickly, and operating as it should, we provide website maintenance packages to our SEO clients at a very affordable monthly cost.
