SEO is the energy that drives every tactic and strategy throughout every internet-based marketing initiative. Importantly, SEO encompasses all aspects of an internet marketing campaign and is the primary component that unifies all online marketing activities.

An SEO audit conducted by our SEO Consultants is a thorough and methodical process for analyzing your web presence and evaluating the search engine friendliness of your website against current best practices. Conducting an SEO audit of your website is essential for understanding how search engines value and rank your website. The objective of an SEO Audit is for our SEO Practitioners to identify structural, technical and content issues that may be negatively impacting organic search results and inhibiting website visibility.
The SEO Audit will capture important information about On-page SEO issues, Off-page problems, Meta Tags, link portfolio, website structural issues, site content format and Keyword use, image and video optimization, internal linking structure and many other technical considerations that may be a barrier to high rankings. An important question is how often an SEO Audit should be performed? A recent survey in the SEJ Annual Report: State of Digital Marketing 2017 indicates 47% of digital marketers say an SEO audit should be conducted every six months. Interesting though, the report suggests that less than half (43%) of SEO professionals audit a new client’s website.
Because both market requirements and technology change so quickly, our SEO technical staff perform audits on all aspects of your marketing campaign on a regular basis. The information our expert SEO Technicians identify will provide a solid foundation for developing detailed recommendations and SEO marketing strategies for continually improving website visibility with flexible cost-effective implementation plans.
SEO Keyword Research and Analysis is the foundation of an online marketing campaign. Identifying targeted keywords that drive traffic and sales leads to your website is crucial to your digital marketing campaign. Cursory analysis produces an abundance of potential Keyword phrases that could be used in a marketing campaign. However, attempting to optimize a web page or important content for many of these apparently relevant keyword phrases is prohibitively expensive and counter-productive.
A more thorough approach is to refine the search by parsing the initial analysis from different perspectives that include the demographics of your target market, product or service benefits, relevance of Keywords for your audience, search volume, cost, and your company’s marketing goals. Selecting the best keywords that provide the highest and best return is the “game changer” that brings highly interested and highly qualified traffic to your website.
Creating useful and informative content is a powerful way to increase your online visibility. Our agency will write compelling and informative content using the primary Keywords and phrases identified by our extensive research. These Keyword phrases will be the search query phrases used by prospects searching online for your types of products and services. If you have an in-house writing staff, we’ll teach them about the importance of content marketing and how to structure content for maximum results. Once optimized by our consulting team with proven SEO techniques, we’ll strategically place this content on your website and other high value web properties and digital venues to achieve the highest visibility where it can be accessed by qualified prospects.
Targeted consulting for local search engine optimization focuses on optimizing a website’s online presence to ensure that its web pages will be prominently displayed on a Search Engine Results Page (SERP) when a user enters a local area search query related to your businesses products or services. Local SEO consulting services use different methodologies and Keyword Research techniques to identify the top marketing search phrases that serve the local area markets for your type of products or services.
With this data, Crevand’s Local SEO Advisory Services can optimize your web pages, digital marketing content, Local Business Profiles and Directory Listings to maximize your website’s local area presence. Timely and accurate business information along with well optimized content and images for local searches will ensure potential customers can easily find you with whatever device they’re using. Additionally, we will help you manage customer reviews acquired through review sites such as Google or Yelp, for example.
Our consultants look at the many factors that need to be considered for achieving high search engine rankings and to gain more traffic to a website. These factors include a well optimized website, good digital marketing strategies and building high quality links. To rank well in your company’s target market, your website will require many quality links from a diverse set of web properties pointing to it. If many dozens of links point to a web page that is optimized with the right keyword phrases, your web page has a high probability of ranking well for those targeted phrases. These links must be thematic to your industry, come from trusted and authoritative web properties and be consistently built over time to ensure relevance and freshness.
Our SEO Consultants understand that the primary goal is always to have very good links from websites that make good marketing and business sense for your site, and which will have a continuous and positive influence on your SEO marketing campaigns. To summarize, if you want more search engine traffic, then strategically acquiring links from high authority web properties on a regular basis is imperative.
Link equity is a major portion of an SEO consulting contract as the quality of links coming to your site is an important element for ranking your web pages. Several of our recent clients have used link-building services from other agencies that were inexpensive and would be considered “Black Hat” by most standards. Unfortunately, these “Black Hat” activities have had a detrimental effect on their website’s ranking.
Using several analysis tools, our SEO Consultants will evaluate your sites link profile by analyzing the existing links for relevance, domain authority, page authority, anchor text, link sources and other key metrics. At the end of this analysis, we’ll have a greater understanding of the value of the site’s links as well as the authority and quality of the linking websites. We also use many of these same tools when conducting a competitive analysis and for acquiring high-value links for your site. After conducting the link audit, we can then develop a customized White Hat strategy for naturally acquiring quality links to supplement and enhance the site’s current link portfolio, and, importantly, be more competitive in your market.
Oftentimes you don’t need an expensive new website to be competitive in your market. Instead the site may simply need a face-lift, some general improvements such as newly written content or a YouTube video, and an upgrade to the site’s SEO elements.

Crevand’s Process for SEO as Applied to a Marketing Campaign
The goal of a search engine is to produce the most relevant results for a given search query.
How does Crevand, as an SEO Consulting Strategy Agency, help both your company and the search engines provide the best body of information available or the best and most relevant solution to a search query?
First it is necessary to understand the importance of SEO in an online marketing campaign. Search Engine Optimization permeates all aspects of your marketing program to ensure your marketing activities are targeted to the right audience. Fully understanding your company’s brand, and the features, function and benefits of the company’s products or services is the foundation of an SEO marketing campaign. Although some marketing initiatives might yield quick results on a short-term basis, SEO is a long-term strategy.
Conducting thorough research around your product solutions, understanding the market needs, evaluating the competitive environment, creating focused and valuable content, optimizing the content, identifying the best web venues for your content and then promoting your valuable content is a time-consuming process. SEO is not a quick fix, is not implemented overnight, nor is it completed within a few days or weeks. Instead, an effective SEO process initially occurs over several months, then is measured and monitored, and is continually improved as market needs change, your competitor’s initiate new online marketing strategies, or technology introduces a better tool or method.
In summary, Crevand believes Search Engine Optimization is a long-term investment that yields high results. Our uniqueness is the methodical research and identification of custom SEO strategies for your company’s market needs. If you want an out-of-the-box, standardized, low-cost project that attempts to address symptoms, we are NOT the company for you.
