Local Search Optimization
Edmonton Local SEO is a new field that most SEO companies in Edmonton do not offer. Not only do we offer Local SEO in Edmonton, but we offer Local SEO for anywhere in Canada and in the US. Our clients have found optimizing for local search has a significant impact on increasing website traffic.
Google Places is the industry leader in Local Searches, and they are using all of their platforms (Google.com, Google maps, etc) to really push Local Searches. The Local search results at Google come up whenever a city name is added to the search. For example, if you go to Google and search for "home inspector Edmonton", the first thing that comes up (above all the regular Search Engine Optimized sites who fought really hard to get top ranking) is the local business results. This is Google listing all the local businesses and plotting them on a map. There are many factors considered by Google when deciding who to appears in the top positions in a Google local search result.

Here is Matt Cutts (Google Engineer & Web Spam Team leader) outlining the biggest SEO Myths
SEO Plugin VS SEO Professional
SEO isn’t a quick and easy install plugin. It’s not available in a turnkey or off the shelf solution. SEO is not “set and forget.” That is not how real SEO works. SEO is a continuous process in a partnership with a professional SEO expert, you should be looking for long term solution. SEO Plugins help, and we work with many different SEO plugins. But they are tools that need an expert and skilled professional to maximize their benefit. Every month, we review your SEO and tweak all plugins to ensure continual maximum SEO benefit.
What Is SEO?
SEO is an acronym which stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is a process by which webmasters use techniques to help increase the chances of your website ranking higher in search engines like Google. Proper SEO helps Google to read and understand your website, and increases how much Google can trust your website. If Google can trust your website, and they can understand your business and your website, then your rankings in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages) will improve. Creative Computer Consulting uses White Hat SEO techniques, which are extremely conservative and do everything possible to follow within Google’s guidelines of what an SEO can and cannot do. Our SEO certified professionals partner with you to fully optimize your business and website according to Google's guidelines. We have a history of increasing our customers visibility on all of the search engines, and expanding their keyword list. Most of our customers see a significant improvement in their rankings within 6 months of partnering with Creative Computer Consulting.
Why Is SEO Important?
The vast majority of people who search at Google or Bing will click on the first result in the SERP (Search Engine Results Page). Some will click on number 2 or 3, but then the traffic drastically drops off. If your website is found on the first page of the SERP, and especially if it is found in the top 3 results, then you will gain more traffic to your website. This in turn helps you to increase revenue with their site, build fans, email subscribers, or whatever goal you are hoping to improve. At the end of the day a website needs traffic, especially targeted traffic. SEO remains one of the most cost effective, and highest return on investment traffic sources available to your average webmaster or business. SEO is a long term strategy, where as AdWords is a quick fix.
Are SEO Companies Worth It?
SEO companies, like Creative Computer Consulting, have trained professionals that will be able to optimize your site and promote it efficiently to get you the best results while avoiding getting your site penalized by Google. There are many poorly trained SEO companies and black hat SEO companies willing to sell you services to make a quick buck. In the long term, these companies will hurt your business and website. Poorly done SEO can have an adverse effect on your rankings and will require a lot more work to fix. Make sure you learn what questions to ask SEO companies in order to qualify their skills. We partner with our customers to build long term relationships. We want to work with you to expand and grow your business through SEO Marketing.
