Your concrete flooring company might have a beautiful website, full of images of your finished work with glowing testimonials from satisfied customers. But does your site come up at the top of the organic search engine pages when someone searches for concrete flooring in their area?
If not, then your site is only doing half its job because it should be more than just a showcase for your products and services. It should be a lead generation magnet, constantly bring in new business. Getting your company website to rank well organically in the search engines is called search engine optimization (SEO). It means not having to pay for ads, and this is how it’s done.
We determine what keywords and keyword phrases you want your company to rank under in the search engines (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo and others). These are the words and phrases that people searching will use to find your services.

SEO does not operate in a vacuum. Your concrete coating company has search engine competitors.

There is a saying in the SEO world: Content is King. This is because the search engines, especially Google, love useful and original content and will give priority rankings to websites that have it. Ensuring that your website content is well-written, informative and providing real value to your visitors is key when it comes to ranking well organically under specific keywords.
The search engines look for specific signals from each website and use these signals to determine page rankings. Signals include a site’s meta descriptions, title tags, navigation, load time, backlinks, context and many others. When these signals are doing their job, website rankings increase.
The internet is built on links, with billions of websites linking to one another. Yet not all links are created equal. Some carry more weight than others when it comes to organically ranking a webpage. Google in particular looks at links as a way to measuring a site’s authority and popularity. If other well-regarded websites are linking to a site, then that tells Google that the site is worth ranking well in its SERPs.
