FAQs About Our SEO Services in Cincinnati

What is SEO, and how will it help my business?

Search engine optimization is a type of online marketing that involves using various tactics to help your website rank higher in search engine result pages. By implementing SEO, many businesses see success in more leads, customers, sales, and ROI. Because many people today use the internet to find out more about a service or product, having an optimized website will allow your business to stand out to your audience. One of our former clients said it best:

“Having a website and not doing SEO is like having a phone number and not listing it anywhere.”

How long does it take to see results from SEO results?

Depending on the industry your business is in, the locations you’re targeting, your competition, and the tactics you’re implementing, timelines can vary. Generally, we’ll start seeing improvements within 3-6 months, but some tactics have a faster impact than others!

Do you provide ongoing SEO maintenance and services?

Absolutely. When you work with us, you will be able to work with us for as long as you want. Typically, we meet with our clients on a monthly basis to give updates as we conduct regular maintenance to make sure we are continuing to see improvements.

What is local SEO?

Local search optimization is having your SEO tactics focus on a specific location, which will help users in a target location be more likely to come to your website. Certain industries such as healthcarehome services, and dentistry will usually have a focus on local SEO.

How is SEO measured?

We measure SEO success in various ways, such as:

  • Organic traffic – This includes how many internet users are reaching your site through organic search.
  • Keyword rankings – The position of your targeted keywords on search engine result pages.
  • Click-through rate – The percentage of people who click on your website’s link compared to the number of impressions.
  • Conversions – The percentage of visitors who complete a desired action on your website, such as filling out a form, calling your number, or purchasing a product.
  • Site authority – This metric indicates the website’s potential ranking and SEO performance.

How effective is SEO?

SEO is highly effective, and we’ve seen various businesses meet their goals when implementing SEO tactics. Here’s some evidence of the impact SEO has from our SEO Statistics for 2024:

  • The first 5 results on organic search results generate 69.1% of all clicks
  • 84% of users who use search engines will use Google 3 or more times a day
  • 63% of organic search traffic generated through Google is through a mobile device in the United States
  • 46% of Google searches have a local focus
