That’s where SEO, search engine optimization (the process of optimizing a website to be indexed by search engines), comes in to play. Your site can be optimized to target potential customers in the Houston, Texas community, throughout the United States or Globally.
While different search engines have different methods for indexing websites, there are several things we can do to get a high ranking for your desired search terms (also known as keywords).
First, we research your competition. What are they doing that you’re not? How are keywords placed throughout their website? How are pages linked and what is in their meta-tag content? We will keep all this information in mind when designing an SEO strategy for your site.
After selecting some keywords to target, we will strategically place these keywords in your content and page coding to help improve your search engine ranking result.
