Help us rank higher on Google

By May 13, 2020No Comments

A colleague recommended me to your page and service. I just wanted to know a little bit more about how you would be able to help us rank higher on Google. We are a full service commercial real estate firm and would need to rank high for brokerage and Management mostly. We do have active social media accounts.

Thanks for contacting me. It’s always good to be recommended!

My offer would be appropriate for your site: you don’t have a lot of SEO work on there currently so it would certainly make a difference.

A few general thoughts:

Your homepage is a bit light on text. Personally I’d recommend you rewrite the main About page text (to ensure it’s unique) and include that on the homepage too. If that isn’t feasible I’d suggest moving the main About page text to the homepage instead.

It’s good you have active social media accounts. They can work well for social related traffic to your site (when you link from them to pages on the site) but actually have very little SEO impact. Facebook for example has marked all their outbound links as ‘nofollow’ for some years. So links don’t count towards your SEO authority. In my experience social accounts are best used to create a mini ‘community’ on those platforms you can have your own specific strategies for.

Thanks again!
