Search engine optimization (SEO) is a very important weapon you should have in your marketing arsenal if you own a local business in the Anchorage. Studies have shown that more than 85% of consumers use the Internet to search for local businesses, which means if you are not visible online, you’re missing out A LOT!
And by „visible online“ we mean if people can find you when they search for services you provide in Anchorage, Alaska. There is a joke in internet marketing circles and it says that the best place to hide a body is on the second page of Google.
No matter in what city in the US you own a business if you are not on the first page, most likely people won’t find you when they search for services you provide in your city. Just remember when was the last time you went on the second page and beyond. Not that often probably, so it won’t be a surprise when I tell you that first few results get more clicks than all the other results combined. Yes, first 3 spots get more clicks than all the rest results combined, and if you know that some searches offer millions of results, you can see the importance of SEO for your local business.
Just to give you an example for a local search: you probably came to our website because you were searching for „Anchorage SEO“, „SEO Anchorage“, „Alaska SEO“ or something similar on a search engine. In the time of writing this, Anchorage SEO offers 477 000 results; SEO Anchorage offers 485 000; Alaska SEO offers 507 000 results, and you came to our website.
Maybe you clicked on few more just to decide which one is better for your needs or budget, but you probably won’t go to other pages (especially for SEO, because you know the best companies are on the first page).
This is what online visibility means. When people search for services you offer, you show up on top. You may offer the best service/product in the world, but if no one knows that, you’re not going to make it in business – simple as that. That’s why you need to choose the best SEO company in Alaska to help you reach that top and get more high-quality leads for your business.
An SEO expert can make a huge difference for your business and if we can rank our website on the first page of Google for the most competitive keyword in Anchorage and Alaska, then imagine what can we do for your business. SEO type keywords are usually the most competitive keywords in every city because you’re competing with SEO experts, so when you see some company ranking on the first page for SEO related keywords, you know they are legit.
Another service we offer is reputation management where we rank your properties on the first page of Google for your brand name. This is especially good for business owners who have problems with either bad competitors or ignorant customers that have too much time on their hand so they post terrible stuff about your business on some forums, etc. We had clients that came to us crying about how their competitor used a fake name to post a terrible comment on some local forum about their business, and because it’s very popular forum in their state Google showed that forum page high on Google when their potential clients went to do some research about the company. I don’t have to say how that almost destroyed the company’s reputation until we fixed it.
We can’t get the forum or any other website remove what someone said about your business, but we can rank your properties above that so most people won’t see it. Now, if you can prove someone made a false claim just to spite you, you can win an argument on a court, but that takes a lot of time, and can cost you a lot more, while this is stress-free and you can be certain we’ll do it in due time.
