Step 1: SEO Services Marketing Analysis

Where are you right now?

In order to get started on a journey, we must first know where we stand. Any SEO Service company will need to gather as much information as they can from you and start by discovering your industry. The targeted client base, objectives and competition are just the beginning of a numerous amount of questions. As one of the best SEO Agencies, we do everything we can do put you right at the top! 

What do the numbers say about your business?

Now that we understand the Industry you are in, let’s look at the raw data. As the saying goes: Men Lie. Women Lie. Numbers Don’t. Firstly, will need to set up your website properly to enable data collections. Secondly, we will start to analyze this data and predict patterns needed for your success. The tools needed are in your search console, tag manager and analytics accounts. 

How is your Competition Performing?

We have your input and the information from google on where we stand. It is now time to research the industry and find out a thing or two on how to conquer SEO for your company. There are several tools used by various SEO companies including Ahrefs, MOZ and SemRush. It helps us narrow and concentrate our efforts to rank you higher on Google. 

Websites are the backbone of your Digital Marketing Strategy.

 We have the numbers from Google analytics. The data from Ahrefs and Moz has been gathered as well. It is not time to see how our website is doing. Far too often, businesses spend too much money and time focusing on the website’s visual appeal. While it is not a bad thing, the essential factors often get overlooked. We can break it all down but it is nothing more than complicated SEO expert jargon which we handle once we are hired

We know how they are doing…but are there any missed oppurtunities?

One of the best places to get started on increased SEO Standings are your competitors. What are they doing to land on the top 3 ranks for your keywords? How is their website laid out? Are they using SSL for their security? From the little factors to the big, we will handle this for you. Additionally, are they missing out on any other oppurtunities?  

Do you really know what people are typing in when looking for your service?

Perhaps one of the most overlooked talents of an SEO Company. While many businesses will go ahead and do their market research, they are sure to miss out on several keywords that an SEO professional will be able to dig out. There are certain keywords that you know, certain you don’t know and ones you don’t know that you don’t know. Worry not. We have experiencing pulling out all these keywords to maximize your traffic.

What is a good backlink? What is bad?

Lastly, the Link building. By far, the most time consuming and what sets apart good agencies from the bad ones. Google is a robot that follows instructions based on your links, security, speed and other factors. In order to convince the system that you are better than your competition, we also need to be better than them. It is a slow and time consuming process but one that will certainly yield positive results in the long run.

Step 2: Website Updates and Optimization

It takes more than just backlinks to maximize exposure..

One of the main responsibility of an SEO company is to edit the website to optimize conversions. Cool. However, the lesser the the pages, the lesser the authority. In order to build credibility with Google, it helps to have a lot of RELEVANT content on your website. Content is King and we know the importance of it. 

We got eveything we need. Time to put things together

We now have a plan and it is time to execute. It all begins with the keywords you are looking to rank for. In the early 2000’s people would pack their keyword as much as possible to rank higher on google SEO. Unfortunately, doing this today has a chance to get you a penalty than a higher ranking. We will do all the little things to get you moving up higher. 

We don’t blindly follow a plan…time to evaluate progress.

Once we put it all together there are several tools available to optimize the health of your website. As long as we get the “green smiley” from the developer (yes…we are quite happy here at Sages) we can move onto the next round of link building

Step 3: Link Building for your business

Let’s Build some Backlinks. THE PROPER WAY!

White Hat Link Building is something every SEO Company claims to do. Not all SEO Services follow through with that promise. White Hat Link building is the lifeline of your SEO Campaign. Your website is the backbone and the links are the blood that keep you alive and moving on up in the world of Google. We don’t mean to be that descriptive but it is the only analogy we can come up with at the moment.  The quality of links are everything. The more powerful they are, the more powerful you become. The weaker they are, they weaker your website becomes.  Our SEO Agency’s professionals handpick the good links to connect to your website. 

Consistent Effort and follow through are key.

As a reputable SEO Service in Canada, we make sure the pace we build the links at is sustainable. It is a long and tedious process meant to get you more customers for a very long time. If we work in a hurry, you will get a bunch of top 3 rankings but they will not last at the top. It is better to proceed slowly and ensure a steady pace that is sustainable in the long term.

Once all the webpages are indexed and growing, time to ramp up the effort!

Once we have established our base and we are moving up quickly, time to ramp it up and distance yourself from the competition. Our SEO Agency will ramp up link production to get you right to the top and get you those positions you are looking for

What is Off-Page SEO Services?

This is the other factor aside from On-Page SEO. Off Pages SEO refers to SEO tactics that can help you website gain trust and build credibility. Backlinks of all types, Do-Follow and No-follow would be considered part of Off Page SEO Strategy. They pass "SEO Juice" which allows Google to trust you website more and rank you higher. 

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SEM (Search Engine Marketing) are two different forms of Marketing. They are both forms of online advertising through search engines. Think of SEO as earned and SEM as paid.

No. We don't. Business Owners should want to be subscribed to our SEO due to the Return on Investment we generate for them. Not a contract that forces them to stay on board. 

Freelancers can charge anywhere from $200 - $2000. However, you will not receive the same value in return due to their lack of employees and resources that an agency has. You are always better off choosing an SEO Agency than a freelancer if you are serious about investing in your business. 

Our SEO Portland Agency FAQ's

What's the best SEO Portland Service Pricing Package for our business?

It all depends on what stage of the business you company is currently at. If you are starting out and looking to establish a presence, the started package might suit you best. However, if you have a good customer base and are looking to increase your operations, the professional 2.0 might be your best option.  The SEO Agency fees is just an overhead cost that pays itself off. It is normal for companies to experience a 400-500% ROI. 

How Long till I see results?

On Average, depending on several factors - 3-6 months. Why so long? Well some industries such as financing, law firms and dental clinics might take longer. Factors such as the competition, how often your website gets crawled, the indexing timeline and website speed all play factors into ranking your website at the top. We want your website to be functioning optimally in order to maintain those rankings we achieve for you.  

SEO is an ongoing process.

Yes. We can. How long will it take? How much will it cost? This will depend on a number of factors. Domain Age, Website Optimization, website speed, industry strength are just a few of the factors. While you may believe that one keyword suits your better than others, our job as an SEO agency is to uncover hidden gems. We try to get your website seen by as many people as possible looking for your service. So regardless if you are #1 for a certain keyword or not, we will get you tons of relevant traffic that will convert and purchase your product. 

Are SEO Portland Services even worth it?

Is it worth it? Yes.  Why? Subsidized form of Marketing is why. SEO is one of the best and more efficient manner of getting your business name out there for the world to see. It doesn't matter what product you sell, SEO is a fantastic method of marketing your product. As one of the cheapest forms of marketing and produces the highest return on investment than any other form of online marketing. People will always trust a website that is ranked highly on google because the business clearly invests in itself and therefore provides a good product. Is ranking at the top of crucial keywords worth it? Yes. It is. 

Can I choose what the blog content is about?

SEO Services are meant for companies to stand out and show out. There is nobody in the universe that knows about your business than you do. The content that is chosen to be created will always have your say in it. We want you to be happy and more importantly, get results for the money you are investing with us. All Blog posts will be relevant to your business and we will do the best we can to ensure the quality is A+

Time is Money...

Of Course you can. Why not. You can also change your own tires, mow your own lawn and make your own food. However, when we specialize in what we do, the best product is often created. Therefore, focusing on your business while an SEO Service is your best bet. Not to mention that SEO requires a lot of technical knowledge, research and most importantly experience.

By the time you learn how to SEO and what works and what doesn't, you will have lost plenty of business you could have had focusing on your craft. Our plans are extremely price sensitive and we work with clients from all backgrounds. Give us a chance and we will make you a lot more money than you currently have.

What Exactly am I paying for with SEO Portland Services?
When you hire an SEO Agency, you are essentially investing your companies marketing budget. What exactly are you paying for? You are paying us money to rank you at the top of various search engines. How does that benefit your business? You get more clients and earn more business!
 
1) Optimizing your URL's, Keywords, Page Titles and Meta Tags along with Site Content. 
Perhaps the most basic form of SEO Service. While some of this might not make sense to you, some of it will. Optimizing your website is crucial to the success of your SEO Campaign. 
 
 
2) Optimize alt attributes
Do you happen to know what alt attributes are? It's alright if you dont. this isn't a test. Alt attributes are basically codes for your images. The more optimized they are, the higher your chances for ranking for that keyword. Alt attributes are a very small factor in SEO rankings but we look past no factors for your success. 
 
3) Content Updating and Upgrading. 
 
Google values websites that are well maintained and offer new content from time to time. They like websites that are updated, optimized and looked after. This means that the company is still in business and continues to invest in itself. Must be a good a business. Let's rank them higher for our viewers to be see their website. Simple tasks. Amazing results.
 
4) Optimize technical site elements
We mentioned the alt tags and site updates. Reality is that there are so many little factors that we could not possible list all of them. There is on page factors, off page factors, branding and so many other technical aspects that go into ranking your website. When you pay an SEO Agency, this becomes part of their job description. We do this every day and and for every client like clockwork.
 
5) Responsive Website Design
Your Website is the backbone of your SEO Campaign. Responsive website design (RWD) is a term used for websites that are user friendly. They literally "respond well" to the end users. RWD improves the quality of the site and can make your website look very modern. As your online storefront, you want your website to stand out and for people to purchase your product or service. While you can have a flashy website, if the end users are not able to utilize it properly, chances are you will be losing several customers. Seamless navigations, multiple call to actions and optimal website speed are all categories of RWD. 
 
6) Streamline navigation
A customer comes to your website looking for your service or product. You have it. Great. However, they are not able to make the purchase because your website glitched and not they cant see your phone number or contact you through the website. Boom. You lost a customer. Worst feeling on the planet. You work hard to attract clients to the website ..well we do. But you pay us! and we will make sure that there are as few breakdowns as possible on your website. 
 
7) Answer users’ questions
 
You sell X products. Chances are that you are the expert in X Products. This means that you can answer some of the questions your user is looking for. Cool. But how do you pop up when the customers are looking for answers? Blogs, optimized website designs and improved branding and recognition. That's how. Let us take care of that for you. SEO is what we do. Just focus on optimizing your business and making more money! 

Why are SEO Portland Services so important to my business?
Is SEO Important for your business? Branding, Client Traffic, Increased Trust and Higher Revenues. Simple Answer. We can talk about how SEO is this and SEO is that. However, SEO comes down to building and increasing trust among your potential client base. You pay for SEO to target customers looking for your product or service. It also helps that it is one of the cheapest forms of marketing and is only increasing in value with time. 

How do you determine SEO Portland Services  Pricing?

SEO Pricing has multiple factors that go into it. The most important one would be - how many keywords are you looking to rank for? Companies who start out their SEO campaigns early are often the most likely to need heavy campaigns since they are already established in their niche and industry. That makes sense as well. Companies that are around for longer often have an established client base that refers them and grows from the work they have dont prior. 

How big is your website? The larger the website, the more work involved for SEO companies to take you to the top. Optimizing and updating websites takes time. The more work that needs to be done, the higher the cost for your SEO Campaign. However, the more money you spend on SEO, the better your search results meaning higher revenues. 

The last determining factor is your target audience. Are you a global company? or local company? Do you have a specific target market that needs to be targeted? How many products and services are you looking to market to them? The more, the merrier. The more you pay for SEO, the higher your output as well. If you are targeting a global audience, it means more work. Targeting specific audiences requires skill and precision. There are so many factors that go into pricing out an SEO Campaign. It is one one or two things but rather a combination of several things that determine the cost of your SEO Services. 

How competitive is your pricing?

As a consumer, we are often trained to pay the least and expect the best. Unfortunately, SEO is not one of them. Quality is everything. You can always find a cheaper SEO Service but the finished product will not equal what you pay. The harsh reality is that SEO costs money. The lower budgets are usually a scam as those costs usually go right into the pocket of an SEO company. Not your website.

At the very least, have a budget of $500/monthly. Even though $500 is quite low, we take pride in being able to work with individuals from all walks of life. We have several clients who started with us at $500/month and not pay us close to $5000/month. Why? Because they are receiving $10,000 - $15,000/Month worth of traffic.

At Sages, we take pride in being upfront and honest about everything we do. A lot of SEO companies won't give you straight answers you deserve because they are trying to keep you paying and in the dark for as long as possible. We want our customers to benefit from our services because they are happy with us. If cost is a big factor for you, we are not the correct company for you. We do not want to work with companies that will nickel and dime us. SEO is not cheap and it costs money to rank on Google. One thing we can guarantee - our effort and ROI. Our work speaks for itself. 

Why does SEO Portland Services cost as much as it does?

We’ve already answered the question “how much does SEO cost”. But the answer is not always so simple or straightforward. Here is an in-depth article about SEO Pricing. While we can provide a simple answer, the answer is not that simple. The reality is that SEO is not cheap. It costs money and requires an investment in your business. The more money you invest, the more you get back through increased rankings. 

Firstly, the competition is the biggest determinant of SEO cost. The higher the competition, the more money it will cost to rank in that industry. If you happen to be in a smaller city and work in an industry with lesser competition, you may get away with a smaller budget. However, if you work in the finance industry or insurance in the big city, expect to shell out more money for your business. 

There are no websites that don't need SEO work. SEO is an ongoing process. You need to keep your campaign optimized and ready to go in order to maintain your SEO Rankings. Factors such as competition and maintenance are key contributors to why most SEO Campaigns range from $1000-$3000/Monthly.

What is an SEO Portland Audit?

An SEO Audit is something that is needed to rank at the top of your search results. The audit covers several different factors such as industry strength, website design and optimization among 200+ other factors. It's a tool that is used to build out a plan that an SEO agency can execute to get you the results you want and deserve. 

What is On-Page SEO Portland Services?

There are several factors that contribute to SEO. One of them happens to be On-Page SEO. What exactly does it mean? It refers to the the technique of optimizing the content on your website. Keyword Optimization, Website Speed, Robots.txt file along with Meta Tag Optimization all come under the umbrella of On-Page SEO. 

Service Area: Portland, Oregon

Located along the Willamette and Columbia rivers, Portland is the largest city in Oregon. It is known for having tons of trails, bridges, and parks, but also for being eco-friendly. There are coffeehouses and microbreweries, the Oregon Zoo, a railway, and a Japanese Garden, to name a few attractions. At Sage Marketing, we aim to help your business get noticed in local searches.

Portland is also well-known for its love for wine. There are many wineries and places that offer wine tastings. Portland has a ton of things for people to do during the day to attract them to the area. That is the chance local businesses have to capture new traffic, convert them to customers, and increase revenue. That all starts with a successful SEO strategy. By investing in SEO, you are investing in the future of your business. Once set up, SEO can continue to work for years unless you change your objectives or search engines have another major update.

Below are some ways that we can assist your business growth in Portland, Oregon:

Digital Marketing Agency

 

If you have a business in Portland, you want to be sure that you’re hiring the right SEO company for you. Not all SEO strategies are created equal, meaning what works for others may not work for you. We understand that and manually build each SEO plan for our clients. We take into consideration what objectives you want to focus on the information we gather from analyzing your website and your competition.

Our Portland SEO services include various tasks from start to finish. We always provide a detailed report with what we find. We’ll identify the most effective and relevant keywords for your targeted audience. These are search terms people are already looking for, but we also look into analyzing contextual keywords for geo-targeting for local customers. Finally, we will put together a list of keywords that can be used for SEO, PPC, CTA, comparison keywords, and more.

Google Penalty Recovery Services

 

No one wants their site to be hit with a Google penalty, but it happens. You will have to acknowledge this and keep an eye out for the most basic sign – a major drop in traffic that remains consistent. Organic traffic will normally go up and down, but if your traffic suddenly goes down and stays that way, it could be a Google penalty.

If you have reason to believe your website may have been hit with a Google penalty, give us a call. At Sage, this is one of the first things we look into when providing SEO services because it is so common. In fact, business owners may never realize they have a Google penalty if they are not actively monitoring their organic traffic and Google Search Console.

Once the reason is found, we will go over the best approach for getting your issue solved and start the recovery process. We say process because it is not an instant fix, and chances are if you were using a link exchange program or bought link packages, it will take time to get your old ranking back. However, we have been successful in not only helping hundreds of businesses get their ranking back but rank higher in the process.

Local SEO Services

When it comes to capturing the attention of people in the Portland area, you need to implement local SEO. Unlike traditional SEO, the purpose of this type is to geo-target based on the search radius around your business location. When effective, you will rank in the local search result section, known as the Google Pack. These are the best positions to rank for because once you position in the top three spots, you will appear at the top of local searches, and the only cost is your investment in local SEO.

That is why it is always recommended to spend your marketing budget on effective and trustworthy SEO. Even though it does take a while to begin seeing steady results, once you take over the top positions, traffic increases greatly. Unless you do something that triggers a Google penalty, or one of your competitors manages to do something better, you could keep your position for years. If something does knock your ranking down, we can help figure out what happens and how to fix it.

SEO Consulting Services

At Sage, we use all of our experience, knowledge, and the latest in SEO tools to analyze your website and determine the best course of action to achieve your goals. No matter what your objectives are, our SEO consultants work with you closely to review, plan, develop, and implement an SEO strategy to reach that objective. We will provide the best keywords for you to target based on your business type and target audience. Keywords are one of the most important factors of SEO, after all.

Our Portland SEO agency is here to help you find the right path to take for your SEO. On average, SEO consulting services average 6+ months but are well worth the investment as it can provide years of steady organic traffic. That means spending less on paid marketing and PPC advertising. To learn more about how we can help, give us a call today!

Web Design Services

At Sage, we want to help our clients make sure every aspect of their business is SEO compliant, and that includes the website. We will provide a preliminary SEO audit of your website. This will allow us to be sure it is mobile-friendly, fully responsive, and ready to rank by search engines. If we find any issues or weak points that need addressing, we will let you know and provide recommendations on how to correct the problem. Call today with any questions you have about our Portland SEO services.
