YOAST
OPTIMIZATION

Yoast is a great start for optimizing WordPress sites; configuring the plugin settings, researching focus keywords, and optimizing content are all key parts of SEO. We can review your current Yoast setup and how you're using it, then make necessary tweaks to improve your keywords, on-page SEO, and rankings.

Keywords List

KEYWORD LIST

A data-driven keyword list makes sure you are building content around the right phrases. These should have a nice balance of monthly searches, competition, and profitability. We use tools like Google Autocomplete, Ahrefs, and others to make sure you have a data-driven list of long-tail keywords.

CONTENT
OPTIMIZATION

There's more to on-page SEO than Yoast green lights. We make sure you're using the keyword in the right places, but also things that improve user experience, like adding an HTML table of contents, improving layouts, and making your website format properly when it's shared on Facebook and Twitter.

ONGOING MAINTENANCE

If you're happy with our WordPress SEO services, we are all about long-term partnerships since SEO is obviously an ongoing process. We want to equip you with the knowledge to do things yourself, but also outsource things you don't have the skill set, time, or resources for (this is usually link building).

How It Works

1

AUDIT + TRAINING

Without reviewing your website, we won't know what is right and wrong. Unless you have specific things you need done, we recommend starting with an SEO audit. This helps us BOTH learn what needs to be done so we can more forward confidently, while equipping you with recommendations + training.

2

OPTIMIZATIONS

Optimizations will depend on the audit, but optimizing pages for keywords is usually the biggest part. The audit will includes an extensive list of data-driven keywords and recommendations for optimizing pages. Bottom line; whoever is writing the content needs to be 100% comfortable with optimizing content.

3

MEASURE

We use Google Search Console's Search Analytics report to measure your keywords, rankings, click-through rates, and other data. We also use Ahrefs for monitoring domain rating, competitor keywords, and other data. You will have access to all these reports, including ongoing reports from Google Analytics.
