Search Engine Optimization
We build SEO-optimized websites. It’s an art and a science.
An SEO-optimized website will help you increase your online visibility, expand brand awareness, and ultimately drive greater revenues. We optimize by making sure your site is built right, with care given to on-page SEO and the build itself.
Tiller is an agency with a creative approach and a problem-solving attitude.
Search engine optimization is extraordinarily complicated.
Google uses 200 different factors to determine search rankings. You have no chance of gaming the system. Work with a knowledgeable guide that knows how on-page SEO works and how to make it work for you. The below is just a fraction of what we consider when we build your site.
Keyword research informs your sitemap and page intent
Before we start developing, designing or writing your website, we help you understand the implications of critical keywords and what they mean for your site strategy.
Optimized content improves your rankings
Your content should be high quality, and delivered across your site with a clear hierarchy, featuring critical keywords and minimizing duplicate material. Copywriting helps with this.
Page speed is important
Your core pages need to load rapidly, regardless of your user levels. That’s why it’s important to audit your core pages for speed. Remember that slow websites repel users.
On-page optimization is critical
Individual pages on your site need to be optimized for search. Page titles must simply, naturally and accurately describe the page’s content so search engines can identify it.
Third-party code and plug-ins should be minimized
Minifying code discards excess data without interfering with functionality. This leads to faster load times and less bandwidth usage, resulting in a better user experience.
Websites must be mobile-friendly
The way your site performs for mobile users is critical. It must deliver a great user experience regardless of which device they’re using. Responsive design helps with this.
Other key factors that will affect your search rankings.
We’re not trying to overwhelm you here. We just want to make clear how many factors go into the search ranking for your site and content. Here are a few more on-page SEO items we address during web development.
- Creating and submitting XML sitemap
- Adding 404 error page
- Minified HTML/CSS/JS
- Installing SSL certificate to ensure page security
- Schema markup
- Ensuring there are no broken links
- Verifying browser caching
- Optimizing images
