Where to start with SEO

Now that you know you need SEO, where do you start? An old proverb says "If the trumpet sounds an indistinct call, who will get ready for battle?" That's a good point! Máxima Web always recommends starting an SEO campaign with an Audit, Research & Recommendations or AR&R, but, what, you may be asking yourself, is an AR&R when it's at home? Without it, an SEO campaign won't have a clear goal, lost among a sea of ideas, a lost SEO is a wasted SEO; a waste of time, a waste of money, and worst of all, a wasted opportunity!

Audit the market

Audit

Is SEO going to be the right approach for your industry and your business model? The answer is yes, at least in 9 out of 10 cases! But we have to be sure. Then we can see how best to direct it. To do that, we have to do an audit of your business, because a general SEO can end up costing you a lot of money without generating results, lost in a sea of ideas, remember?

If you have an existing website, we analyse how search engines are indexing it, how they rate it, and why. Our audits use highly specialised processes that look for problems that could have been caused by a bug in development, mistakes in the content, or poor SEO. Something we often see from a lot of agencies that outsource to developing countries, where they use piracy or other anti-competitive behaviour. We don't use a simple automated scan or even a checklist; we have a team of experienced people who thoroughly review the performance of your site.

Research

We research Google's live search database, or in other words, what people are searching for in Google, and we determine the best keywords for your campaign, taking into account your budget and your competitors.

A study of competition in organic search results (SEO) is unlike anything you'll know about the competitors in your industry: traditional competitors may be getting leads from elsewhere, but competing for searches and leads online it's a completely new field, we do the hard work so that you don't have to.

Recommendations how to direct your site

Recommendations

Finally, when you get our report, it’s divided into several sections, making it easy to understand and follow. It identifies areas of opportunity and/or improvements to your existing site. An AR&R, on average, can contain 10 or 20 individual recommendations to be implemented in your SEO campaign.

For a small fee, you will have a complete report with everything you need to get started, whether with Máxima Web SEO or not. If, in the end, you choose to use your current web/SEO developer you will still have the AR&R to guide your campaign. But why not compare our prices, experience and customer testimonials before deciding not to use Máxima Web? We can promise you won't regret it.
