SEO for Pet Professionals
Let me guess. You are a pet sitter or dog walker or a pet groomer or maybe even a veterinarian who built a website or had one built for you. You thought as soon as you launched your site you’d get website traffic, the phone would be ringing off the hook and your sites would rank on page #1 of Google.
Unfortunately, that is not how it works. It takes a lot of time and effort to get a site to rank on the first page of Google or in what we call the ‘3 Pack’. What is the 3 Pack? These are the top 3 businesses you see when you Google a search term. See that first one, Orlando Pet Connections? Yea, that’s my own pet sitting business ranking at the top of the 3 pack!
That’s right, I own a pet sitting / dog walking business as well as a digital marketing agency so I understand waht it takes to rank a professional pet business.
So, how do you get to the 3 Pack? It’s a combination of onsite SEO (i.e blogging), offsite SEO (i.e. backlinks to your site), and technical SEO (how fast is your site, is it secure, etc.). It is not just one thing, it is may things.
With all the changes in Google and Google My Business not to mention WordPress, you need an expert to help you get your site ranked, which is why we have created the Summer of SEO series.
For the next few months, we will be sending out emails with SEO tips and tricks to help you improve the organic search on your website. After all, who doesn’t need more website traffic and customers? If you follow these tips, tricks and suggestions, you could increase your website traffic by the fall. Wouldn’t it be nice to head into the holiday season with more customers?
Wait, what? Did I just say it will be fall before you see an increase in organic traffic?? What the heck?
Yes, that is exactly what I said. It could happen faster, depending on your niche, but as a rule of thumb it takes 4 months or so to see the results and that assumes you are actively working on your SEO. It takes time for Google to reward you for all your hard work. If it were easy, everybody would be doing it.
We sent out the first email earlier this week, but if you want to see it then just click here.
