SEO vs local seo
As a digital marketing agency primarily assisting small businesses in local markets, we feel it’s vital to differentiate between Local SEO and general SEO (Search Engine Optimization). While both play a crucial role in enhancing online visibility, their strategies and outcomes vary. Local SEO focuses on optimizing your digital presence for a specific geographical location, making it an ideal choice for businesses serving a local community. On the other hand, general SEO aims at increasing visibility on a national or even international level.
Unfortunately, there’s a persistent misconception in the digital marketing industry that can mislead small business owners. Many businesses are relentlessly pitched on the idea of SEO services promising to help them rank for certain keywords. While SEO can indeed generate results, the ROI compared to other strategies such as Local SEO, Review Generation/Management, Email Marketing, or Pay-Per-Click (PPC) can often be much higher, especially for businesses operating primarily on a local scale.
While we’re more than equipped to help businesses broaden their reach nationally, we emphasize that, for most small business owners, Local SEO often yields a higher return on investment. This isn’t to say that general SEO isn’t important – indeed, if you’re planning on expanding your business beyond your local community, general SEO becomes increasingly relevant.
Our approach to seo
Our SEO philosophy deviates from the typical approach. While some SEO companies attempt to “game” Google’s algorithms to enhance a business’s visibility, we understand that this is a short-sighted strategy. These exploitative methods might have worked 10-20 years ago, but in today’s era of highly advanced AI, trying to outsmart Google’s system is virtually impossible.
Finding a “ninja” SEO company attempting to exploit loopholes in the algorithm can also lead to significant long-term risks. If your business’s SEO strategy relies solely on these exploitations, you may find yourself in a precarious situation when Google identifies and closes these loopholes. Rather than temporary gains, you might end up with penalties that hurt your visibility and overall reputation. This can be even more detrimental if you expanded your whole business based on these loopholes.
We view SEO as a sustainable, value-driven strategy. Our approach focuses on producing high-quality content that genuinely benefits your potential and existing customers. Instead of trying to trick Google’s AI, we work with it, aligning our strategies with its intent: providing users with the best, most relevant search results.
When SEO is approached as a means of brand-building and adding value for users, it becomes a powerful tool that stands the test of time. As Google’s algorithms continue to evolve, they’ll recognize and reward the genuine value provided by your content, pushing your business toward the top of search results.
