Houston SEO Company
Houston SEO Experts
On September 15th, 2003, TopSpot was born and Bison Profab, who we still work with today, became our first official client. Now, we look back and credit our last 20 years of growth to the trust our team and clients have put in us.
While we started with only five team members (all of which are still team members today), our Team now consists of over 100 members, making TopSpot one of the fastest-growing Houston SEO Agencies in town.
What is SEO?
SEO, also known as Search Engine Optimization, is the process of optimizing your website to generate more quality and quantity of website traffic through the organic search engine results.
A common misunderstanding we run into is the difference between search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM). There are 2 large differences between SEO and SEM, also known as PPC or paid search marketing. First, SEM is paid advertisement and SEO is un-paid advertisement in the search results page. And second, paid search listings are typically located at the 1st-4th positions at the top and bottom of the results page and organic listings can be found in between. There are many additional paid search ad listings throughout the search results page such as shopping or local services ads depending on your industry.
Like SEO, there are many “ranking factors” for SEM including budget and quality of landing page experience. Typically, SEO & SEM go hand in hand when creating strategies. SEM is beneficial for SEO because Google Ads provides more granular information such as search queries users type in to find your site. This data could provide opportunities for improving user experience and overall rankings through landing page experience for organic and paid search optimization.
For SEO, the strategies are created around Google’s key ranking factors to improve overall rankings in the organic space of the search results page. There are over 200 ranking factors Google takes in consideration such as:
TopSpot’s Houston SEO & PPC teams can optimize your site to improve rankings for both search engine optimization and paid search marketing.
Why Do I Need SEO?
As the search landscape continues to evolve in algorithm and appearance it’s important to stay on top of these changes for your site to be ranked in the most ideal space for your business. Within the last few years, we’ve seen the organic (non-paid advertisement) space pushed further down the page to accommodate knowledge boxes, paid advertisement, quick answers and map packs. With Google’s goal of providing users with the information they are looking for as quickly as possible, we are seeing an increase in zero clicks on the search results page, meaning the user never clicked on a snippet in the search results because their answer was featured at the top of the site. In 2018, 34% of all desktop searches and 63% of all mobile searches resulted in zero clicks.
TopSpot Internet Marketing’s SEO efforts generate quality traffic and leads to your website. Our SEO Experts are trained to review search landscape and ranking factors when developing strategies for your business. Together, we will create a plan on how to move your online presence forward and generate quality leads based on your business goals.
How Do I Rank On The First Page Of Google & Bing?
There are over 200 ranking factors that are taken into consideration when Google and Bing are reviewing your site. It is important to stay up to date on these ranking factors to ensure your business is on the first page for the products or services most important to your bottom line.
Although Google generates 75% of US desktop searches, according to Comscore’s Explicit Core Search Share Report, Bing generates 25% of US desktop searches as of May 2019. This traffic is generated through users who don’t realize they’re using Bing and those who do. For example, Windows Search box through Windows 10, Cortana, Siri on Apple devices, Alexa from Amazon Fire & Echo and many more devices all use the default search platform of Bing. Although Bing does not hold as large of a market share as Google for desktop searches, it is still an important piece of the puzzle for SEO.
At TopSpot Internet Marketing, our SEO experts go through in-depth and ongoing training to ensure their knowledge is well versed with the key ranking factors that Google and Bing deem as important. Our Houston SEO team will build a strategy tailored to your business by conducting a competitive analysis to ensure we are providing the most relevant information on the site.
How Does Local SEO Help My Business?
Local SEO marketing improves the organic online presence for businesses wanting to target a specific location.
Local SEO strategies fall in line with SEO strategies for nationwide or worldwide companies, except it is going to be more location targeted. For example, these local strategies can include specific areas served content, local structured data markup and creating/maintaining local listings.
For Houston, these local businesses could only want to target inside the loop or as far out as Katy, The Woodlands, Sugar Land, or Pasadena. A few of the specific industries we have partnered with over the years in Houston include:
- Dental Practices
- Pool Builders
- Home Builders
- Contractors & Construction
How to Choose an SEO Agency?
Choosing an SEO agency in Houston could be an intimidating task. There are so many options, certifications, and types that it’s hard to know where to begin. It’s important to choose an SEO agency that best fits you and your business goals. Below are some example questions we recommend asking all Houston SEO agencies your considering:
- What is the process you will use to accomplish our goals?
- What is your communication and reporting process?
- What are the different tools that you would use to track my KPIs?
- How much time and resources will you need to commit to?
- How do you learn and adapt to the ever-changing algorithm updates?
- What is your SEO program pricing structure?
- How will I know what kind of work you’re doing on my site each month?
- Do you have any references or testimonials from current clients in my industry?
