Learn What's Holding You Back From Higher Rankings

You could have a beautifully designed website with some of the most compelling content in the world, but still not rank highly in search results. Often, this is due to technical issues that prevent a search engine from fully-understanding your content—or, possibly, from even seeing it in the first place.
We call these issues “technical debt.” Whether it’s broken links or an improperly configured robots.txt file, your site could have hundreds or even thousands of issues holding it back from higher rankings and more organic traffic. Find out with one of our Technical SEO Audits.

Should you work with an SEO consultant or use an SEO tool?

SEO tools are great. With them, you can identify and monitor any SEO issues that appear on your website. However, a tool can’t replace the knowledge and insight that you can get from a highly skilled SEO consultant.

Tools can identify issues, but they can’t provide you with any further insight into why these issues might be happening, and what your best path forward should be. An SEO consultant will work with you to diagnose issues on your site, develop solutions tailored to your specific situation, and even implement the solutions for you.

What We Do

Because no two businesses are ever exactly the same, the first step in our process is always to understand how your business works, what your ideal customer looks like, and what your short and long-term business goals and objectives are. 

Once we have this foundational information, we will work with you to craft a strategy and plan that will allow you to reach those goals. We’ll also use this information to prioritize any Technical SEO activities, tying potential traffic gains to desired business outcomes. 

Here’s how it works:

1. We conduct a Technical SEO Audit

Our audits provide a holistic look at every section of your website. Our tools paired with our skilled team helps to identify not only surface level issues, but issues that can’t be identified by tools alone.
