Search Engine Optimization

SuCoWeb Can Put You on The Front Page

Web Design for businesses

Once a website is launched, the next step is to use Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to make it appear in the search results and outrank its competitors. Most of the clients who come to us already have a website, but aren’t seeing the results they were hoping for.

Creating a website is one thing, but making sure potential clients actually see that website in their search results takes ongoing effort and management. It’s one of our most popular services at SuCoWeb.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

SEO is the process of affecting the visibility of a website in a search engine’s unpaid, or “organic”, results.  Google is the most popular search engine by far, followed by Bing, Yahoo and a number of minor engines.

SEO is complex (here’s a more detailed guide) but it’s not rocket science. The greatest skill in SEO is taking the established rules of marketing and applying to this modern forum. The basic rules stay the same:

  • Have a good, reasonably priced product or service
  • Communicate its benefits clearly, simply and attractive
  • Get people talking about you
  • Give people a reason to choose you over others.

Of course, you need someone who knows how to take these simple rules and apply them correctly online. That’s where we come in.

The Most Important Elements of SEO

If you’re a small business serving a local area, you’ll want to learn about Local SEO and how to make it work for you.

On-Page SEO

Correctly use titles, descriptions, headings, and keywords

Structured Data

Accurately use machine readable data and schema

Properly build them and confirm that the ones already there are helpful

Technical SEO

Actively ensure site health and site speed

Correctly displaying the website on any device

How Much Does SEO Cost?

For kicks, we asked ChatGPT what a monthly SEO service might cost. Unsurprisingly, the answer fell between $500-$10,000 per month. A quick Google search might give you roughly the same kind of answer.

SEO services vary depending on the company offering the SEO service, as well as the company that needs it. Another reason this range is so vast is because a lot of companies who work in the world of website development and optimization tend to keep their pricing structures off of their own websites.

We’re a small business too, and like you, we understand that in order to invest in the different necessary services, it’s helpful to know ahead of time how much to budget and where the money is going. We’ve decided to be transparent about what our costs are, and what you get when you work with us.

“White Hat” Vs “Black Hat” SEO

“White hat” SEO is doing things the right way. It can take time but it will pay off. It’s what we do all day.
“Black hat” is doing things the wrong way. Buying backlinks, breaking search engines rules and sometimes the law. It can be very effective in the short term, but in the long-term it will hurt you and can even outright destroy your business.
To be blunt – black hat SEO is stupid. There’s no safe way of doing it, and anyone who offers to do it for you should be ignored.
