Search Engine Optimization

Google is a search engine, just like Yahoo, Bing, Ask, etc., however between Google Canada and Google searches, they accounted for over 75% of all search traffic in 2010. When Splash develops your website we follow Google’s rules for the foundation (On-Page SEO) they need in order to read and rank you. This is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO). When your website is complete and ALL your information is in (we highly recommend to never publish your site without everything being complete first), we will submit it to Google for you. They will then ‘index’ your site quickly and you will START the ranking process with them. How you rank, how well you rank and how quickly you start to climb the search results depends on a number of elements.

  • Splash needs to do the foundation work they require for your website.
  • Content, either written by you or by Splash, needs to be optimized for SEO practices (this is explained further on Page 31), making your site ‘relevant’ to search requests.
  • How much traffic your website is generating.
  • How much competition you have around you in your industry. It may take a few months for your website to start to settle on the ranking scale. After a few months, if you are still not ranking how you would like, you may need to consider a complete SEO strategy.

If your SEO is not what you are comfortable with after a short time of your website being published then you will need to consider a stronger SEO strategy.  This is a detailed process that involves going through analytic data from your current website traffic, evaluating your competition, and creating strategies that will bring you to the top of the page.  Splash delivers these additional SEO services for many of our clients (SEO Review, Content Optimization, SEO Basic, as well as Off Page SEO services needed to assist in getting your website good ranking and traffic. This involves link building, Social Media interaction (Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, YouTube, Instagram), reviews, blogging (where necessary), proper engagement with your audience, and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) directives. These practices are vital to improving traffic to your website and improving your ranking with search engines.

If you ranking well with search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, then SEO practices are something you need to consider as an ongoing marketing effort.
