Search Engine Optimization Infographic SEO Asheville

SEO Asheville is a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Company in Asheville, NC, which is the largest city in Western North Carolina. SEO Asheville knows 75-92% of people don’t go past the first page of Google.  If your business is on the 2nd page or beyond of Google, you’ll be getting less than 2% of the total potential traffic for those keyword(s). Search Engine Optimization has been shown to be one of the highest return on investment traffic channels since the traffic is free and there is no advertising budget (as opposed to Google, Facebook, and Youtube Ads) and the returns compound over the long-term.

Google search result position

The first position on Google Search Engine Result Pages (SERP’s) collects around 32.5% of the clicks, second gets aound 17.6%, and third gets 11.4%. By the time you get to the ninth and tenth positions, the click-through-rates have fallen to about 2%.

This  means if you are on Page # 1 & Position # 1, you’d be receiving anywhere from 14x-20x more traffic to your website as opposed to being on Page #2. 

Even if you were in the 6th position of Page #1, you have the potential to receive 8x more traffic just by moving up 5 spots.

Google uses 200+ ranking factors in its algorithm to determine which pages are going to rank high. So if you launch a new website without any SEO work done, your website is likely to get buried pages deep in the search engine results. 

I’ve been asked before, “why should we hire your company when we can do SEO ourselves?” I responded with something around the lines of, “you can do it yourself because I know how much work it takes and how much knowledge you have to learn about the specific KPI’s (key-performance-indicators) that raise your rankings. I’m only offering a helping hand”.

The Two Types of SEO

Local SEO is the process of optimizing your website to appear for local search queries.

Examples: “Concrete Installations Near Me” or “Landscapers in Asheville, NC”.

Local SEO is great because it is usually less competitive & easier to rank as opposed to ranking nationally.

Here are some of my clients I have ranked in the Google Organic Section for the Top 3 Local Map Pack.

Google Search Engine Optimization Ranking #1
Google Search Engine Optimization Ranking #2

National SEO is the process of optimizing your website to appear for generalized, non-location based search queries.

Examples: “CBD for Sale” or “How to Stop Dark Circles from Under my Eyes” (Have a stellar piece of content that targets those keywords, get it to rank, possibly sell your product)

National SEO takes longer to rank and is more competitive, but the pay-off is exponentially more lucrative since these keywords generally have a high volume of searches.

Here is a client I ranked nationally in the US for a term that has 6,600 searches a month.

On page optimization Search engine optimization

#4 On Page Optimization

After conducting our SEO Audit, we make changes on your actual website based on our findings. These changes could be anything from adding content to target more keywords, or changes inside of your website’s code.

We boost your user experience and make changes based on any finding.

Anything & everything necessary to raise your SEO ranking.

#5 Off Page Optimization

One of the biggest elements of SEO are backlinks to your website. A backlink is a link created when one website links to your website.

Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO because they represent a “vote of confidence” from one website to another.

In essence, backlinks to your website are a signal to search engines that others vouch for your content.

There are link building techniques that follow search engine rules & policies (White Hat SEO) & there are unethical (Black Hat SEO) techniques that can get your website blacklisted. Another important reason to have an SEO company who know what they are doing.

#6 On Going Optimization

You may want to rank higher for a keyword, you may want to publish new content that generates more traffic.

On going optimization is all about implementing new strategies & tactics based on the analytics and current rankings.

*Secret* There is no silver bullet when it comes to SEO. You don’t do A,B, and C and you’re automatically in the first spot of Google for every keyword.

Frequently asked questions

SEO is short for “search engine optimization.” It’s the practice of increasing both the quality and quantity of website traffic, as well as exposure & outreach of your brand, through non-paid (also known as “organic”) search engine results.
