Why Our Agency’s Approach to Search Engine Optimization Works: It’s in the Process

Sustaining SEO success and maximizing ROI starts with thinking about long-term business goals. Our experts deploy all possible tactics to create a content ecosystem rich with organic quality signals, which starts with a foundational assessment. Our programs typically include the following:

  • Website and ranking audits  – Using a proprietary 300-point evaluation and in-depth audit reports, we assess your site’s strengths and weaknesses with respect to SEO, traffic performance and conversion rate optimization.  High-level questions we like to ask include:
    • Are site load times fast across devices when internet connections are slow?
    • Is the responsive version of the site missing important content found on the desktop layout?
    • What are my rankings for phrases that drive conversions in key geographies?
    • Where am I missing gaps in content that my competitors are winning out on?
    • Is the site taking advantage of structured data?
    • Does the website’s content provide enough value to generate natural links?
  • Deliverables focused on action - After completing their SEO research during a website audit, our analysts compile a report and prioritized list of action items that are designed to improve your website's organic lead generation. Our Chicago SEO service extends beyond documenting site issues. We develop a roadmap for implementation that’s geared towards efficiency and impact in the short and long term.
  • Keyword research and user discovery - Keywords matter, but your users and the intent behind their searches matters more. Our keyword research strategies, which are fueled by the site auditing process and persona analysis, focus on audience first and keywords second. We use competitive analysis and proprietary tools to tell us what information users need to convert, then drill down into how they’re searching. Our content experts then carefully craft messaging using these phrases naturally in a way that speaks to your audience’s pain points.
  • Content development and link earning: Our in-house content team has experience producing rich assets pieces like white papers, tip sheets and website content with users and SEO goals in mind. We write copy and create content experiences that are memorable so when we engage in outreach strategies to pitch your content to relevant publications, they love to link back to our clients as a resource for their users.
