Win a Free Optimization Campaign
If you are not well search optimized then you are automatically losing customers to your competitors. This is especially important and true for local businesses. 85% of Americans search online before they make a purchasing decision. If they do not find your business in the top 3 listings then your competition just got that call or purchase instead of you.
The vast majority of business owners do not understand search engine optimization (SEO). Unfortunately, neither do the supposed experts. When a web developer tells you that your new website will be ‘searched optimized’ that is a half-truth at best. In a nutshell, the template driven websites all offer ‘search optimization’ but in reality, you need continuous active campaigns for your company’s website and offerings to appear at the top of search engine results pages. A template website will not do that for you.
Take the 2-minute challenge below to see how your company stacks up to the competition. If you want immediate help click here to sign up for guaranteed results. Your campaign will begin immediately.
2 Minute Search Optimization Challenge
Step 1 – Test search results on the specific name of your company.
- Go to http://www.google.com
- Type in the exact name of your company and the primary city where you do business
You will see the results appear in Google. Is your company listed in the top position below the paid Ads? If so then you have passed the first, basic and important hurdle to being found online. Great job! Move on to the second and more important test. See an example of this type of search on Augur Marketing below.
If not, then you need immediate help. Click here to sign up and get listed. If you do not then your competition is already grabbing your future customers from you.
In the example image above Augur Marketing appears in the number one spot below the paid advertising as well as on the right-hand side of the screen. We achieved this result without paying for advertising. There are also pages of relevant results including photos video, blog posts, and press releases.
If you see other companies with similar names listed in your search results understand how confusing that is to potential customers. You should absolutely make your company stand out from the crowd in searches. Click here to make your mark and stand out from the crowd.
Step 2 – Check Results Against Your Competition
This is the most important test. How do you compare online against your competition? Remember that most people who search are looking for broad categories and new, potential customers do not know your company brand or name. The typical search is similar to, as an example: italian restaurant, or rug cleaning service.
For this check on how well you are search optimized perform a similar search as above except that you will type in a product or service and then the name of the primary city that you do business in. For example estate law tysons, va or jewelry store washington dc.
Since this is the most common type of search you need to ensure that your company appears at the top of this list. Remember that most consumers do not look past the first 3 results. It is much tougher but possible to appear closer to top the in large metropolitan areas like Manhattan and Washinton, DC.
- Go to http://www.google.com
- Type in a service or product and then the name of the primary city or area that you are doing business in.
The example below is using a search for business lawyers in Arlington, Va. Note that it is important to use the city and state. In this case, there is also an Arlington, Texas and even though Google is good localizing searches you can still get mixed results if you don’t include the state.
For medical service providers, it is just as important or even more important to be listed well in directories (list of doctors offices). We (Augur Marketing) managed a search engine optimization (SEO) campaign for Dr. Shore Armani in McLean, Va. along with her website development and had phenomenal results. When we began the search optimization campaign she only had a few listings, none in the top 3 and all had incorrect information from her previous office location. There were also confusing results mingled in with Armani Exchange.
