SEO is a formulaic process, no matter what sector a company is in, what a site sells/what
services it offers, the same principles apply. The main components to SEO are technical, on-page, content, links/authority and citations.

SEO is not considered advertising because search engines do not profit. In principle, SEO is free advertising, but it is extremely complex to employ. Search engines frequently release the newest information about their algorithms, but it’s up to web designers and business owners to take stock and update their websites to reflect what the search engine prefers. SEO has become so popular because it is practical and attracts customers organically, but it is extremely technical.
It’s possible to optimize your website yourself, but it’s quite the time commitment to learn about and employ. Did you know that over half (55%) of businesses partner with an SEO company? This ensures that you have a strong return on investment. Secondly, it is possible to overdo SEO and lose your ranking. Companies that regularly optimize websites are familiar with the parameters of common search engines such as Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Amazon, and more.
To have your website pop up sooner than others’ can put you ahead of your competitors, so many business owners have rushed to customize their website, and they overdo it. For example, Google’s algorithm punishes over optimized websites by lowering their ranking considerably. It’s a catch-22.
Partnering with a regional, knowledgeable SEO agency can help you stay within the parameters suggested without going to any extremes. Southern Digital Consulting will afford you a customized experience with personal attention to your business’s needs.
Research shows that mobile web browsing has now outpaced the quantity of desktop searches. Google recently changed their search algorithm to reflect this change, and other search engines followed suit immediately. Now, businesses’ rankings will drop in search results if their websites load slowly or improperly on mobile devices.
Southern Digital Consulting can make sure your website is optimized for mobile usage. If we look at global markets, many if not most of the world’s internet users operate using a cell phone alone. Mobile web optimization can give you an advantage as technology continues to modernize globally.
Search engine optimization consists of free-but-complicated tools that help your website be discovered organically, and more often, over a longer time frame. Search engine marketing is paid advertising, and can help you achieve your goals faster, such as appearing on the first page of Google search results.

For your website’s SEO to be effective and efficient, we will ensure that we pay attention to the following on your website:
The points mentioned above are important to boost your website’s rankings on search engines. It may interest you to know that the absence of the technical SEO could affect the indexing of the pages of your website. All these tools combined help your website gain traction in algorithmic search results.
SEO results depend on time and consistency. It is rare to see significant changes in web traffic within a few months. SEO takes patience, but it pays off over time with organically earned customers. Often, it takes about 3-6 months to see tangible results, which is why we offer 6-month SEO contracts.
Our SEO agency reports updates to our customers on a monthly basis so that they can track results and we can remain accountable. However, SEO services do not guarantee specific quantities of traffic, new customers, or new purchases. Optimizing a website acts as a nudge that gradually betters your online presence over time. It’s a bit like the tortoise and the hare—slow and steady wins the race.
