SEO Services for your San Francisco – San Jose – Oakland Bay Area Company

search marketingIt doesn’t matter how pretty your website is if no one can find it. If it’s not on search engines, it doesn’t exist!

What is SEO? The term Search Engine Optimization is normally associated with organic search engine optimization (also known as SEO), not to be confused with Pay Per Click (PPC or AdWords PPC listings). Organic SEO is a method of writing text content, web coding, linking and designing websites in a way that search engines favor and can read. If done right, search engines will give a website with strong SEO extra credit and rank them higher than other websites on search engines.

Here are 2 SEO clients who understood these concepts years ago and are still with us today. See what they say about our SEO work (Note: KO Websites, Inc. is our parent company):

SEO PRO Plan 2: Monthly SEO Service Plans

Monthly full time SEO package for small and large companies marketing in competitive industries and/or nationally: $950/Month

Why a monthly plan? Some industries are more competitive than others, such as various restaurant markets, law firms, Real Estate, retail, etc. We call this group “early adopters.”  They were much more aggressive early on with their SEO and trying to catch up to them takes much more effort, time and work. Ranking well nationally (and worldwide) is much more challenging too. This ongoing SEO plan is also the right plan for you if you desire to market for more than 15-20 search terms.

How it works: We start with and focus on the most important top 20 search terms. Once we have those highly ranked, we start on another 20 terms. This continues as long as the initial terms don’t drop in ranking. If they do, we pause and go back to work on the most important terms again. We highly encourage the use of a site hosted blog for search term expansion and reinforcement. Blog writing is available at an additional cost.

Service include:

  • Key search terms consulting and reports
  • Tech Website evaluation (load time, file sizes, robots, etc)
  • Call to action evaluation
  • 50+ search terms
  • Text content editing for SEO
  • Meta tags, page titles and more good stuff
  • G+ page setup
  • Google analytics setup
  • Webmaster tools setup
  • General text/photo site updates at the same time optional
  • On-going site SEO and tweaking throughout the month
  • Cart product page SEO
  • Blog SEO (2-3 per month)
  • Reports and tracking every month

Why is SEO expensive? We believe, and so do most smart digital marketing experts, that organic SEO is the most important thing to focus on when considering your internet marketing strategy. Unfortunately, it’s getting tougher to do every day, as we must now also compete with social and rating website listings like Yelp, Facebook and other listing, rating and social media marketing websites. This issue, along with the fact that search engines are changing their algorithms (rules) so frequently, has made maintaining SEO proficiency a full-time job. These factors, with the recognized important value and ROI that SEO brings, keeps the going rate for quality SEO at around $150-$250 per hour.

How long does it take to see any results? This is a very common and good question. For a well design and establish website, first results can usually be seen in 4-6 weeks. Many factors play a role, including website domain name age, history, coding, web design, platform, inbound/outbound links, company industry, target search terms, regional targets and even a little luck. For new domains and website, it can take a couple of months to see results. Getting on page one of google sometimes can take longer.

Do you guarantee results? Fair enough question. Unfortunately we can’t give you the answer you want to hear. Because of the above mentioned factors and the ever changing search engine algorithms, no one can give a solid guarantee. We can only show you our past SEO performance and results and give you referrals. That said, we can normally give you an educated guess on the likelihood of success based on the competition, industry and your website condition.
