With the digital world constantly growing and developing, it’s becoming increasingly important for brands and SME’s to strengthen their online profile.

There are many aspects involved when it comes to growing your online visibility, some of which can be done in-house; however, many SME’s turns to search marketing agencies like Click Consult, to help strengthen the process.
SEO is one of the main services used within search marketing, which can help boost your website rankings and contribute to achieving a profitable ROI…
If you have a website that has been established for some time now, it’s worth investigating and seeing what your backlink profile looks like and whether there are any broken links. At some point, we’ve all come across a broken link, whether you were aware of it or not. A broken link is simply a hyperlink within an article that should direct to either an internal or external webpage; however, if the link is broken then you’ll be taken to an error page. If your website does contain broken links then it can have a negative effect on how Google views the site. Checking for broken links can be tedious but extremely beneficial in the long run.
Creating a high authoritative, relevant backlink profile will benefit your rankings and help towards how search engines view your site. The backlink profile looks at other websites that have linked to one of your pages and how trustworthy they are. It’s not ideal to have external sites linking to your website that aren’t relevant to your services and aren’t seen as authoritative themselves. By building a relationship with other relevant websites, you can work towards obtaining backlinks from their site, whilst passing authority and allowing Google to see which other sites are talking about your brand.
Where your website ranks on SERP’s comes down to your keyword research. Researching the key terms you want to rank for means you can attract more relevant traffic to your site and hopefully convert them to sales. Once you’ve identified the keywords you’d like to rank for, they can then include them within your website’s content and help towards boosting your keyword rankings. Unless you have previous experience, it’s best to seek professional help when it comes to keyword research, as it needs to be carried out thoroughly by an expert, to achieve the best results possible.
Why is online visibility important?
With rapidly growing industries and the online world become more and more competitive, how your brand is viewed online needs to be at the forefront of your business strategy. If executed correctly, then the services within search marketing can be highly beneficial and help achieve your online objectives.
