What Your Search Engine Optimization Package Includes

Getting ranked on the first page of Google can be a long and difficult road. We've engineered our services around driving more search traffic through an initial website analysis where we look at key technical issues to determine appropriate modifications needed to make your website rank better and then implementing those changes.

We have our own development team to help make on-site website improvements. We can analyze your existing website and find technical issues that need to be addressed and not only tell you about these issues but actually fix them. Some SEO companies are like a security guard - they'll let you know about an issue and call the police (a web developer), but then you're stuck looking for a developer and more cost to get their recommendations implemented. Some pay per click (PPC) and social media marketing companies email us weekly for former clients who've hired an "expert" who needs us to implement their services.

We work with you (or on our own without direction) to determine high quality and original content pieces that are added to your website every month. These blogs or pages of content we create will identify potential opportunities for keyword exposure by focusing on your business and target geographic market. We can (if required) post these to your Wordpress website as draft and notify you so that you can review the content before it goes public.

Our service is second to none. If you're arrived at our website, you've likely seen our reviews. We believe strongly in providing quick answers to complex questions. Solving problems before they become problems. Staying in contact with former clients (even those who don't sign up for a monthly program). And finally, being a point of contact if anything were to be changed with your business and website.

Getting ranked on top of the search engines and driving more traffic is just the first step to bringing in more business. Your website must have a purpose: to request an estimate, a 30-minute free consultation, download an e-book, start a 7-day free trial, explore your portfolio of work, or any other driven goal behind your website. We make sure your website has a purpose and people pickup the phone or fill out a contact form.

We have been in business for more then 10 years. We have achieved first page rankings for hundreds of clients over the years. The longer you stick with us, the longer we'll be able to adapt your website and rankings to stay ahead of your competition. Unlike traditional advertising, a website isn't a 30 second television commercial that you pay for once and your exposure is gone. Your website is always accessible and always fighting to stay ahead of the competition. When your business stops competing with your websites SEO, your competition will with time over take your positioning.

With each blog article we will conduct research about your industry and the types of topics people are actively searching for. This ensures that the content that is written will be written for your audience and capture search engine queries across the web to deliver more quality traffic and leads for your business. No need to worry about providing us topics, we will find them!

We will email you every Thursday or Friday with a link within Wordpress of your website where you can review the content and make any edits to the drafted content before it is published. This ensures you are able to review before publishing and you can always let drafts build up and post them all later if you get too busy to get to them in a week. We also use Blog2Social to make posting from Wordpress to your social media sites easy as 1 click!

Frequently Asked Questions

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is designed to make websites more search engine friendly and accessible. SEO uses various techniques, strategies, and services to make websites appear higher in search engines.

When you hire Mankato Web Design, you can expect over time for your rankings to gradually improve month over month. SEO is not a black and white science - rankings can sometimes fluctuate but the overall trend will be on the up and up. Without our SEO services, for instance if you worked with us for some period of time and then cancelled, your website could drastically fall after a Google update but it may also stay ranking well for an unknown period of time.

The only way to guarantee first page rankings is by using pay per click programs like Google Adwords. The "fly by night" companies that guarantee XX number of first page ranking keywords could simply say you rank first page for your company name or some other extremely easy to rank for keywords while you're ideally looking to rank for the competitive keywords. Per per click has its advantages, but once you discontinue advertising with Google Adwords or pause your campaign spending, you will be dropped off and no longer receive the traffic you once did.

If you do not have a website currently, or your current website is just simply outdated so much so that I couldn't work with it to get you results, we can supply a separate proposal for website design services in addition to an ongoing SEO package plan.

Unless we're redesigning your website as an initial service, your site's look will remain the same. Most of the SEO that is done is done behind the scenes by focusing on your websites architecture, meta tags, and coding. We may make recommendations for design modifications and better call to actions but we'll let you know if these are needed before implementation.

Website maintenance services are quoted and not included in any of our SEO packages. For example, if you get a new logo and want to rebrand your website with the new brand strategy colors and logo, we will have to quote for this.

We try our best to make sure your plugins and Wordpres core are kept updated in order to maintain a good level of security with our monthly SEO packages.

Most clients see improved rankings within 6 months but more competitive industries can take longer.

Our SEO packages are month to month and you may cancel at anytime. We simply ask for a 30 day notice prior to cancellation. For example, if there were 30 days in a month and you cancelled at day 29 or even 7 days into the month, you would still owe the final months payment.

Feel free to check out our online reviews and judge for yourself.

Similar to almost any other profession, yes you could do it yourself but you won't see the best results unless you bring in an expert to help. You can do your own taxes, cut your own lawn, be a lawyer with LegalZoom.com, or you can choose to hire a professional because you know it will be worth the investment. If you have a small budget, say a few hundred dollars a month, there's still some things we can help you with - just give us a call today to discuss options.

There's always an option no matter what size your budget. Call us today and we can discuss some options and take a look at your website together. Even if we cannot help you given your budget, we'll try our best to make a recommendation.

If you got burned by an SEO company in the past, and made it all this way, you're already doing something right. You're doing your homework and reading through a company's website thoroughly. I would suggest next to check their reputation. Google the company's name and check reviews. When you call an SEO company, ask for references and call or email those references.

Real SEO professionals know that rankings take time, hard work and dedication to see results. Some SEO companies will claim to get you #1 on Google overnight or build hundreds of backlinks in a week. Be cautious of these "experts" they often do more harm then good. And when your rankings may improve in the short run, over the long haul your site may get blacklisted at which point you'll have to do your search all over again. Good things come to those who are patient with SEO. If you're market is local, and you have low amount of competition, the answer to the question is going to be our lowest priced package. If you have a competitive nationwide market, or a local market that is competitive, you'll have to spend more. The amount of money you spend is directly correlated to the number of hours our team has to spend optimizing your website. The key differences between the packages are simply the hours involved go up and time goes up the higher the package you go.
