Our SEO Testimonials
Our Sacramento SEO Agency Process
An SEO campaign in Sacramento CA is competitive no matter what industry you’re in (it is one of the best places to do business in the United States) or how beautiful your site is. Our team begins each clients’ campaign by identifying the main competitors in the search results. This market research process allows us to benchmark your competition’s domain authority, so we know what it’ll take to surpass them. Then, we can start the SEO campaign and satisfy the search engines with your website. Below is our long-term SEO strategy, our SEO tactics, fundamentals, and more summarized.
Search engine optimization can be a “game of inches” where even the small things can mean the difference between you or your competition ranking on the first page. Enter technical SEO audit.
Every time we onboard a new client, we perform a technical audit on the client’s website. This technical audit analyzes the website to detect common issues that could hold it back from Google ranking success.
A few on-site technical issues include 301 redirect chains, site speed, site structure, duplicate content, site security, 404 error pages, and more. Once the site has an excellent technical foundation, we continue with our process.
Note: We typically do extensive audits when onboarding a client who’s had a site designed by other Sacramento web service providers because SEO isn’t their specialty.
SEO Optimized Content Creation
We know that content marketing and content writing increases your site’s authority and brand awareness in Google’s eyes over time. We achieve this by publishing one or multiple optimized articles on your site every month. This is one of the many internet marketing strategies that help companies rank higher in the search results and is included in all of our SEO packages (case studies coming soon).
Our monthly content development objective isn’t to write an article to look pretty on your website but rather to publish, rank, and provide value to your customers, improve lead generation, and increase brand awareness in the local arena. The content strategy is 100% evergreen, long-term, based on keyword search volume, advanced keyword research, brand awareness, and is completely safe from Google updates.
With this SEO strategy, and over time, your Sacramento web content will gain authority, and we’ll interlink your content. Our interlinking strategies help our small business clients rank for even their most competitive keywords.
Every keyword our local Sacramento SEO agency aims to rank gets put through rigorous page optimization. We ensure every service page and blog post that we publish gets optimized for your keywords using the best SEO practices.
On-Page optimization includes page elements such as your title, meta data, URL structure, schema data, headers, content, and at times design elements. The goal here is to make sure Google’s algorithm understands that you’re the #1 authority and resource for your geolocation and industry. This is a monthly service that’s included in your SEO package.
One of the essential ranking factors to ranking your business in Sacramento’s Google search is having more domain authority than your competitors. The articles and pages we build are great but won’t do much or rank higher long term if Google doesn’t recognize your site as an authority.
We build that authority over time by building links to your website from other websites through our backlink outreach, guest posts, business listings, and partner networks. Link building is included in a few of our SEO plans. If you run into SEO companies in Sacramento that don’t know about link building and you’re in a competitive niche AND they’re offering you low prices, stay away (we usually have to come in and clean up the mess these service providers created).
Note: If you’re in a competitive Google search environment, building links is important for your SEO campaign and SEO strategy. Ensure you have a conversation with your SEO expert about link SEO strategies for long-term results, as they’ll help you rank better.
The bottom line is these techniques take a lot of time, money, effort but are included in all our SEO campaigns.
Google Maps for Local Businesses
Our SEO solutions also get you leads via your Google My Business (GMB for short). This is known as “local SEO” and is important for attracting new customers to your local businesses.
Your GMB listing will show up anytime someone types in your Sacramento business’s brand/company name on Google. And when optimized correctly, your GMB can rank in the top 3 map pack search listings. We optimize your GMB listing for the correct categories, address, phone number, hours, images, and more based on data-driven competitor analysis.
Ranking in the 3-pack on Google maps requires citation building. Citations are references for your business (i.e., Yelp, Foursquare, Yellow Pages, etc.). They don’t transfer much link value but are a local rankings factor. We perform an audit on your existing citations and ensure you have consistent information between them and your GMB.
Advice: if your GMB physical address is located in a city while you want to rank in a specific city (because there’s more search traffic there), it’ll be a lot more challenging. Example: If your real estate business address is in Elk Grove and you want to be on the map pack in Rancho Cordova, it’ll be a long time before you start to get organic traffic.
Conversion Rate Optimization
Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is the process of optimizing your website pages, blog posts, and overall web design for user experience to increase your conversion rate.
One factor that affects conversion is load speed. Web development, graphic design, a good looking site is excellent, but if your website pages take 10+ seconds to load, people are going to bounce off your page and go to your competitor. SEO and website design professionals optimize conversion goals to deliver more leads and justify your website rank to Google (as they continue to raise the bar on site speed).
Our CRO improves your site’s lead generation capabilities and tells us precisely what elements on your site are working and not working so we can adjust and move on to the next CRO testing. Note: not all local SEO specialists include this in their marketing campaigns!
The goal of S.E.O. isn’t just to get vanity rankings on Google. What good is ranking #1 for your keyword if your site isn’t ready to convert your web visitors to take a conversion action? We optimize clients’ websites and web design for email form submissions, live chat, phone call conversions, and more!
Social Media Marketing
Social media activity on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn. Will these social media marketing properties increase your organic traffic, improve your search engine rankings, or, more importantly, get you new customers long-term? It’s one of our frequently asked questions. There’s a place for it, but it’s not ideal for long-term success, which is what a Sacramento county small business wants. However, having a social media presence can be beneficial for public relations and brand awareness.
Social media is more of a vanity traffic source in digital marketing and isn’t a reliable inbound marketing strategy than organic traffic from local search engine results. Ask any advertising agency or SEO company, and you’ll get the same answer.
We wish our graphic designer more creative work besides another logo design, but if you want a solid return on investment, our long-term focus will be on increasing your search traffic for your desired search terms.
That said, our marketing agency does offer social media management as one of our internet marketing services. Aside from our search engine optimization company services, social media is a place for your customer base to improve your internet presence to get your updated business info (i.e., a new website design announcement) and more.

How Much Does SEO Cost In Sacramento?
You might be asking, “how much do SEO services cost?”
This is a question our digital marketing agency gets a lot, and the answer is it depends. No Sacramento SEO marketing company or website design SEO agencies can give you a quick answer here.
Every local Sacramento website has its own unique search engine optimization challenges and are selling in different product or service markets. So we couldn’t possibly give out a price list for every industry here. The best SEO companies first do a thorough keyword and competitor analysis. After that’s done, SEO agencies can provide a quote tailored to your market’s competitiveness and the estimated time it will take to get ranked on Google organic search.
Our prices are structured for a set time at a one-time total cost. Campaigns can run from 3 to 6 months & sometimes longer, depending on how competitive the market is. If you didn’t know, ranking websites on Google for your most competitive keywords or keyword phrases, following best practices, is a slow process that yields revenue growth in the hands of an expert Sacramento SEO marketing company.
S.E.O. is an investment in your business, and we break down the total cost into monthly payments for our clients.?You can get a free consult and proposal here. Once we’ve received your details, an SEO consultant will call you ASAP!
An SEO Pricing Example
Let’s say a local Sacramento area law firm needs local SEO help because their site’s search rankings are on page 4 for their major keywords. The boss fills out our consultation form?and wants a price quote.
Our marketing team conducts an SEO analysis. Surprise! Ranking for legal keywords is incredibly competitive and expensive in any city, let alone California’s capital!
We determine that this firm needs at least 900 hours of work. If we bill starting at $50 (price is for example purposes), the total SEO campaign cost will be a minimum of $45,000. Broken down into six months, this monthly cost would be $4,500.
Here are a few metrics our SEO company monitors and reports on every month:
- Google My Business Metrics
- Google Analytics & Search Console Metrics
- Conversion Data from Google Analytics
- Advanced Phone Call Tracking & Recording (Optional)
- Ranking Reports
Our digital marketing team closely monitor your campaigns and provide monthly reporting on your most crucial KPIs (key performing indicators) metrics. After all, we’re not here to get you pretty rankings – we’re here to get you more leads and ultimately sales long term!
