Our Local Sacramento SEO Agency Process

An SEO campaign in Sacramento CA is competitive no matter what industry you’re in (it is one of the best places to do business in the United States) or how beautiful your site is. Our team begins each clients’ campaign by identifying the main competitors in the search results. This market research process of the other Sacramento businesses in the area allows us to benchmark your competition’s domain authority, so we know what it’ll take to surpass them. Then, we can start the SEO campaign and satisfy the search engines with your website. Below is our long-term SEO strategy, our SEO tactics, fundamentals, and more summarized.

Technical SEO

Search engine optimization can be a “game of inches” where even the small things can mean the difference between you or your competition ranking on the first page. Enter technical SEO audit.

Every time we onboard a new local business client, we perform a technical audit on the client’s website. This technical audit analyzes the website to detect common issues that could hold it back from Google ranking success.

A few on-site technical issues include 301 redirect chains, site speed, site structure, duplicate content, site security, 404 error pages, and more. Once the site has an excellent technical foundation, we continue with our process.

Note: We typically do extensive audits when onboarding a client who’s had a site designed by other Sacramento web service providers because SEO isn’t their specialty. Sacramento web design and Sacramento SEO are two different things. We do both.

SEO Optimized Content Creation

We know that content marketing and content writing increases your site’s authority and brand awareness in Google’s eyes over time. We achieve this by publishing one or multiple optimized articles on your site every month. This is one of the many internet marketing strategies that help companies rank higher in the search results and is included in all of our SEO packages (case studies coming soon). SEO and digital marketing play hand in hand when it comes to content creation and that’s why we include it.

Our monthly content development objective isn’t to write an article to look pretty on your website but rather to publish, rank, and provide value to your customers, improve lead generation, and increase brand awareness in the local arena. The content strategy is 100% evergreen, long-term, based on keyword search volume, advanced keyword research, brand awareness, and is completely safe from Google updates. We recommend this strategy for any local business.

With this SEO strategy, and over time, your Sacramento web content will gain authority, and we’ll interlink your content. Our interlinking strategies help our small Sacramento business clients rank for even their most competitive keywords.

On-Page SEO

Every keyword our local SEO agency in Sacramento aims to rank gets put through rigorous page optimization. We ensure every service page and blog post that we publish gets optimized for your keywords using the best SEO practices.

As Sacramento SEO experts, we understand that On-Page optimization includes page elements such as your title, meta data, URL structure, schema data, headers, content, and at times design elements. The goal here is to make sure Google’s algorithm understands that you’re the #1 authority and resource for your geolocation and industry. This is a monthly service that’s included in your Sacramento SEO package.

Off-Page SEO

One of the essential ranking factors to ranking your business in Sacramento’s Google search is having more domain authority than your Sacramento business competitors. The articles and pages we build are great but won’t do much or rank higher long term if Google doesn’t recognize your site as an authority.

We build that authority over time by building links to your website from other websites through our backlink outreach, guest posts, business listings, and partner networks. Link building is included in a few of our SEO plans. If you run into SEO companies in Sacramento that don’t know about link building and you’re in a competitive niche AND they’re offering you low prices, stay away (we usually have to come in and clean up the mess these service providers created).

Note: If you’re in a competitive Google search environment, building links is important for your SEO campaign and SEO strategy. Ensure you have a conversation with your SEO expert about link SEO strategies for long-term results, as they’ll help you rank better.

The bottom line is these techniques take a lot of time, money, effort but are included in all our Sacramento SEO campaigns.

Google Maps for Local Businesses

Our Sacramento SEO solutions also get you leads via your Google My Business (GMB for short). This is known as “local SEO” and is important for attracting new customers to your local businesses.

Your GMB listing will show up anytime someone types in your Sacramento business brand/company name on Google. And when optimized correctly, your GMB can rank in the top 3 map pack search listings. We optimize your GMB listing for the correct categories, address, phone number, hours, images, and more based on data-driven competitor analysis.

Ranking in the 3-pack on Google maps requires citation building. Citations are references for your business (i.e., Yelp, Foursquare, Yellow Pages, etc.). They don’t transfer much link value but are a local rankings factor. We perform an audit on your existing citations and ensure you have consistent information between them and your GMB.

Advice: if your GMB physical address is located in a city while you want to rank in a specific city (because there’s more search traffic there), it’ll be a lot more challenging. Example: If your real estate business address is in Elk Grove and you want to be on the map pack in Rancho Cordova, it’ll be a long time before you start to get organic traffic.

Conversion Rate Optimization

Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is the process of optimizing your website pages, blog posts, and overall web design for user experience to increase your conversion rate.

One factor that affects conversion is load speed. Web development, graphic design, a good looking site is excellent, but if your website pages take 10+ seconds to load, people are going to bounce off your page and go to your competitor. SEO and website design professionals optimize conversion goals to deliver you leads and justify your website rank to Google (as they continue to raise the bar on site speed).

Our CRO improves your site’s lead generation capabilities and tells us precisely what elements on your site are working and not working so we can adjust and move on to the next CRO testing. Note: not all local SEOs include this in their digital marketing services campaign!

The goal of S.E.O. isn’t just to get vanity rankings on Google. What good is ranking #1 for your keyword on the search engine results page if your site isn’t ready to convert your web visitors to take a conversion action? We optimize clients’ websites for email form submissions, live chat, phone call conversions, and more!

Social Media Marketing

Social media activity on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn. Will these social media marketing properties increase your organic traffic, improve your search engine rankings, or, more importantly, get you new customers long-term? It’s one of our frequently asked questions. There’s a place for it, but it’s not ideal for long-term success, which is what a Sacramento county small business wants. However, having a social media presence can be beneficial for public relations and brand awareness.

Social media is more of a vanity traffic source in digital marketing and isn’t a reliable inbound marketing strategy than organic traffic from local search engine results. Ask any advertising agency or SEO company, and you’ll get the same answer.

We wish our graphic designer more creative work besides another logo design, but if you want a solid return on investment, our long-term focus will be on increasing your search traffic for your desired search terms.

That said, we does offer social media management as one of our internet marketing services. Aside from our search engine optimization company services, social media is a place for your customer base to improve your internet presence to get your updated business info (i.e., a new website design announcement) and more.

How Much Does SEO Cost In Sacramento?

You might be asking, “how much do SEO services cost?”

This is a question our digital marketing agency gets a lot, and the answer is it depends. No Sacramento SEO marketing company or website design SEO agencies can give you a quick answer here.

Every local Sacramento business website has its own unique search engine optimization challenges and are selling in different product or service markets. So we couldn’t possibly give out a price list for every industry here. The best SEO companies first do a thorough keyword and competitor analysis. After that’s done, SEO agencies can provide a quote tailored to your market’s competitiveness and the estimated time it will take to get ranked on Google organic search.

Our prices are structured for a set time at a one-time total cost. Campaigns can run from 3 to 6 months & sometimes longer, depending on how competitive the market is. If you didn’t know, ranking websites on Google for your most competitive keywords or keyword phrases, following best practices, is a slow process that yields revenue growth in the hands of an expert Sacramento SEO marketing company.

S.E.O. is an investment in your business, and we break down the total cost into monthly payments for our clients. You can get a free consult and proposal here. Once we’ve received your details, an SEO consultant will call you ASAP!

A SEO Pricing Example In Sacramento

Let’s say a local Sacramento area law firm needs local SEO help because their site’s search rankings are on page 4 for their major keywords. The boss fills out our consultation form and wants a price quote.

Our marketing team conducts an SEO analysis. Surprise! Ranking for legal keywords is incredibly competitive and expensive in any city, let alone California’s capital!

We determine that this firm needs at least 900 hours of work. If we bill starting at $50 (price is for example purposes), the total SEO campaign cost will be a minimum of $45,000. Broken down into six months, this monthly cost would be $4,500.

Here are a few metrics our SEO company monitors and reports on every month:

  • Google My Business Metrics
  • Google Analytics & Search Console Metrics
  • Conversion Data from Google Analytics
  • Advanced Phone Call Tracking & Recording (Optional)
  • Ranking Reports

Our digital marketing team closely monitor your campaigns and provide monthly reporting on your most crucial KPIs (key performing indicators) metrics. After all, we’re not here to get you pretty rankings – we’re here to get you more leads and ultimately sales long term!

Frequently Asked Questions About Sacramento SEO

Do you guys write all the content?

Yes, we're a full-service agency. Our digital marketing and client content is written by native-English university graduates who know how to write for your market's website visitors and Google. Our experts focus on the technical aspects. If you don't have existing content articles on your site, we'll create them for you. Our content strategy works hand in hand with our long-term SEO strategy.

Are there any contracts?

We stand by our digital marketing work quality and currently do not make client contracts for local SEO deals, but we do have them for website designs and web development. Our SEO agency work is on a month to month basis.

How do I track my rankings?

We provide custom digital marketing reports for your campaign. These reports show the ups and downs of your SEO campaigns at the target keyword level. It's normal for your rankings to fluctuate. Over time your rankings will stabilize as we continue to work & improve your site's authority.

How long does it take to rank?

The answer to this varies on a lot of factors. We take into account the competition of the location(s) you want to rank and your web design architecture. For example, ranking in Los Angeles for your keyword(s) will take longer than if you wanted to get ranked in Sacramento California. Typically we start seeing a difference in rankings at the 2-3 month mark. However, more competitive markets can take longer to see ranking results. Local SEO is a long term investment and not a short term expense. If we didn't take the long-term approach, Google would not reward your site with organic traffic.

How do you decide target keywords?

Our campaigns start with an in-depth keyword analysis of your market. We make keyword recommendations and always take into account the keywords you want search rankings for. Once we've decided on your SEO Sacramento campaign keywords, we start creating landing pages and blog content custom-fit for your web design. We target keywords that the customers in your market are searching for the most and those with the highest ROI potential.

Will I have to do SEO forever?

This depends on how competitive your industry is. Low competition local businesses can move on to other digital marketing strategies and stop their campaign. Medium competition markets allow you to sit back and enjoy being ranked #1 for 6 to 12 months while other industries and locations force you to continuously fight for your ranking survival since competitors will scheme to take your spot. High competition markets will always have competitors who are aggressively building links, publishing fresh content, and whose long-term SEO strategy is to take you down.
