- Keyword optimization: Using the target keyword in all the right places and using good meta tag SEO.
We use several tools to perform a website audit and for keyword research. After thorough research including reviewing your closest competitors we define a set of high value keywords and start the On-Page Optimization process.
Technical SEO relates to non-content elements of your website. It includes strategies to improve a site’s backend structure and foundation. Technical SEO improves a site’s readability (which makes it easy for search engines to crawl and understand the site) and provides a good user experience, which helps search engines see that the site is high quality. A good user experience is also important for readers, and can affect overall traffic and engagement rates.
