These days, text-based searches are complemented with location, image, and video results.

First, we’ll thoroughly audit your website using specialized tools to determine which set of key words should be used throughout your web pages. We will then choose those with the highest demand, but with fewer competition, and those that are potentially profitable. These key words and their variations will be used not just on your web pages, but also on relevant sites from which your website will be linked.

There’s a range of tools for determining the efficacy of any SEO strategy. These tools show crucial Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs, to gauge the success of you SEO campaign in Charlotte. These KPIs measure the number of Visitors, Pageviews, Average Bounce Rate, Conversion, and Revenue generated by our SEO campaign.

One of the tools that have been widely used to measure KPI is Google Analytics. This powerful tool shows you where your site visitors came from, which pages within your website they have visited, and if how long they have stayed within your website. Furthermore, Google Analytics also shows you how many and who among your visitors successfully converted into paying customers. From these KPIs, we can then tailor even more streamlined SEO campaigns to win over even more customers in your city.

Will there be an annual contract?

We are committed to your success. That’s why we would like you to sign on to a three-month contract with us to see the efficacy of our SEO strategies.
