What You Can Expect from Our Pittsburgh SEO Company

What’s Included in Our Service Offerings
While our strategy team will be crafting the perfect mix of tactics to help your business thrive, we have a host of SEO skills that we have mastered to ensure our approach is strong:

  • Keyword analysis – We will work with you to determine the terms that you wish to rank for that also have the most probability of bringing people to your site. We then incorporate those terms into our content strategy and monitor your search engine results position changes throughout the campaign.
  • Competitor research – To get a better understanding of your website and where it stands in comparison to other businesses in your industry, locally or nationally, we analyze your competitors’ websites, backlinks, content, and more to see where we can fill in gaps to boost your presence.
  • Local search optimization – If you are a local-serving business, you will require additional approaches to standard SEO practices. For example, local citation optimization, local link building, map spam submissions, and review collecting are just some of the things we emphasize with local SEO.
  • Content writing – Did you know that search engines crawl the pages on your site and read the text within it to get a better grasp of your services, products, location, and more? This is why we put a heavy emphasis on content marketing as we have always seen great success with optimizing the content on websites.
  • Blog creation – If you do not have one currently, we can create a blog structure on your site so we can write targeted posts that can increase traffics, backlinks, and leads. We also can write posts that we will pitch to media in your industry to expand our reach.
  • Link building – In order to help websites gain authority and strength in the eyes of search engines, it is important to build quality backlinks to your website from other authoritative sites relevant to your industry type. And if you are a local business, gaining links from other businesses or organizations in your area can be a key strategy approach.
  • Technical adjustments – Many do not realize that sometimes what is holding a website’s potential back is its internal structure. Things such as a slow page load time, bad coding practices, and omitted metadata can be hurting your current efforts, all factors we can assess and correct.
  • Conversion rate optimization – Think about your current website – do you have simple forms for potential customers to fill out to request information or make purchases? Are those forms easy to find on your pages? We can revise your page structure for optimal conversion.
  • Goal tracking – Our focus is, and will always be, on getting our clients results. And in order to do so, we rely on effective goal tracking with the help of Google Analytics and updates to your web forms to ensure that all data is correct.

Common Customer Questions

We often get asked a variety of questions when prospective clients are inquiring about our services and abilities, as well as about SEO in general. Hopefully these answers can help you in your research.

  1. How long does it take to see results?
    SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. As we work through the strategy we have crafted uniquely for your business, some changes we implement to your website, local listings, and more can show movement more quickly than others. There is no type of SEO, done the right way, that will get you leads overnight, but if you give it some time to take full effect, the changes can last for years to come.
  2. What website softwares have you worked with?
    We are experienced with WordPress, Squarespace, Drupal, Wix, BigCommerce, Shopify, and many custom management systems. So no matter what you use, we will learn it.
  3. Our old point of contact at our previous agency changed out frequently. How do you approach employee turnover in an engagement?
    We are fortunate to have a high employee retention rate at Sixth City Marketing. We value our employees and making sure they grow within our organization. We also typically have you meet with multiple people on our team regularly (account manager and strategist) so that if someone leaves, the knowledge of your campaign and account is retained.
  4. Do you outsource your work to other firms/contractors?
    No. All of our SEO services are done in house using our team of SEO specialists.
  5. What does your reporting look like?
    Our monthly reports are 1-3 page executive summaries (also something that we customize) that provide data on the most substantial things happening in your SEO campaign. We’ll typically send this report within the first five business days of the month and review it in our monthly meeting.
  6. Can we add on other digital services such as PPC or website design?
    We would be happy to work with you for more than just SEO, as we can provide web design, WordPress development, social media marketing, email marketing, pay per click advertising, and more! And if you are not interested in anything more than SEO at this time, you can always ask your dedicated account manager about your options down the line.
  7. Do you just work with local Pittsburgh businesses?
    Nope! So no matter if you are a local franchise in your area, or are a B2B company that serves the whole country, we can help by making sure that our strategy reflects your own goals and capabilities!

“We re-vamped our website and quickly learned that we weren’t getting the SEO numbers that we were used to and in addition, Covid-19 hit. Sixth City came in and took control of our SEO and really improved our google presence and improved our leads by quite a bit. They are professional, well-versed in all things SEO, and very responsive. I am very thankful for Sixth City.” – Madison Osborn, FitWorks
