Month 1 SEO Process Overview

Set Up Keyword Tracking and Campaign Reporting

We track up to 5 main keywords and 25 LSI, Longtail, and Buyer Intent Variations every month. You’ll get a private view key so you can log in anytime and see the site rankings. We track the overall progress of our monthly campaign tasks using a smart Gantt planner. We use a dedicated Drive folder to store all of the monthly deliverables and reports and creatives. You will have shared access to all campaign files and reports. And as each month comes to an end we will send you a monthly summary of your campaign at a glance.

Site Health Check and Technical Audit

We check for 404 errors, proper robots.txt, and XML sitemaps. We look at any 301, 302, and canonicalization issues. And finally, we do a broken link check.

Anchor Text and Semantic Audits

In order to create the best link building strategy, we first need to analyze the existing anchor text of the website. We compare the existing anchor text against the top competitor’s anchor text. Next, we run a Competitor Analysis on your target pages and prepare an action plan on those pages.

Competitor Analysis

We look at the top ranking competitor for the keyword to get an insight into what Google Search is preferring to rank for that search term. We look at links, anchor text, semantic LSI phrases, brand mentions and profiles, social media activity, and any paid promotion activities. Once we have a holistic view of what the number 1 competitor is doing we are equipped to begin our own optimization efforts.
