At Philadelphia SEO for Growth, we do things a little differently when it comes to web design. Unlike many other web design companies, we start with keyword research, not with the design mock-ups.
Here’s why. SEO is not an afterthought. It should be built into the design from the start. It’s not a “plug-in”. So to get a website that is optimized when it’s done, it must be reverse-engineered at the start. Before worrying about how it “looks”, you need to know what your potential and current customers are looking for when searching for your product or service and how they do it.
Of course, many people judge a business by their website, but if they never see it, how can they judge? That’s why we think starting with the strategy to get found is the best concept. Once that’s in place, making the site aesthetically appealing is the goal.
The process we use to design and develop a new website that will achieve high Google search rankings consists of 5 distinct steps, as described below. Our proprietary and proven SEO friendly web development process covers everything from Meta tags to Alt Tags, Schema, titles and more. We engineer our custom WordPress website to be Google friendly from the ground up. This process can take 6-8 weeks from concept to launch.
If you’re looking for a redesign of your current website, one way to start is by getting our free online SEO website report. The results of that report will set a baseline for us to determine the next steps to make your business achieve great search engine rankings.
This is the first step in the website design process. We perform a thorough analysis of keywords and phrases that are most beneficial to getting your company in the top rankings. We compile the initial “root” SEO list and add medium and long tail keyword phrases as we progress to refine the list.
We will determine your growth goals and geographic areas as well. These factors are very important in the keywords and phrases used to boost your rankings.
Following keyword research and finalization, we will determine the number and types of pages for your website. This step is also important to solicit your target customers.
The keywords and phrases determined to be best for SEO will be included in the web design in a way that is not “forced”. It will not be obvious to the casual viewer that they found your website because those keywords were just slapped onto a page. They will be embedded into page titles, meta tags and descriptions. When included in your web page copy, they will appear as a natural part of sentences and paragraph structure.
Philadelphia SEO for Growth expert web designers will incorporate calls to action and make sure your site is mobile friendly because smart phones are increasingly becoming the way many people search on to go.
