SEO for National and
Why SEO Must Form Part Of Your Marketing Strategy
The ultimate goal of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is to attract organic (non-paid) traffic to your website, using content published online. This content is typically information related to the products or services that your company offers. Over time your web pages appear in organic search engine results, or in the form of a business listing such as Google’s Local Search.
Businesses strive to achieve higher search engine visibility in order to take a share of the significant levels of free web traffic on search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo. To illustrate the importance of achieving the top spot in search results, the table below from backlinko illustrates the Click Through Rate (CTR) of a website, based on the position its pages appear in Google’s search results.
To fully appreciate the power of appearing first in organic search, a website that achieves position #1 on Google, gets 10x more clicks than a website in position #9. For every additional position improvement, the number of clicks increases by an average of 32%. Obviously, this increase in web traffic can have a huge effect on the growth of your business and the number of customer inquiries you receive.
If we also take into account that 76% of consumers start searching for a company, product, or service online, the value of SEO to businesses is in plain sight.
You’re 3 Steps Away From Growing Your Business
National Vs Multi-Regional SEO
Depending on your business model we can offer tailored SEO strategies to get the biggest bang for your buck. One way to simplify the two main business models is to explain a National SEO strategy and a Multi-regional approach.
For Large Remote Service Providers
Companies offering services on a national scale, such as financial services, insurance, or telecommunication firms, require SEO support that reflects their expansive reach. In most cases consumers will not visit the company premises and therefore Local SEO is not required.
The goal is to reach as broad an audience as possible with the only limiting criteria being the service area a company wishes to serve, which can be national or even international.
This open up the option of a wide-reaching content strategy, with information based content answering low-competition customer queries at the top of the sales funnel channeling leads to sales pages. Backlink building will help boost domain authority in competitive markets.
For Franchises & Businesses With Multiple Locations
Franchise networks and businesses that have multiple sites scattered across large areas such as Counties, States or Nationally, will benefit from a Multiregional SEO strategy. This type of package is designed to promote each site locally, whilst maintaining central brand identify.
It includes local SEO strategies for each branch, allowing each site to appear in Google Local search and Google Map search. Along with broader national and Local SEO techniques used on the central company website. Including keyword optimization for each location, Google My Business optimization for all branches, and the creation of location-specific content.
It also allows content strategies that reach and capture customer search inquiries across multiple regions.
