Targeted Content

Your website needs fresh content on a regular basis to drive the kind of traffic that will earn you business. This doesn't necessarily mean putting up new articles and landing pages constantly, but it does mean targeting the content you do put up and making it count.

Earning backlinks is the number one thing you can do to rank your website higher on Google searches. When it comes to earning backlinks, 'less is more' has never been more important. We create high quality links on a regular basis back to your site to rank it higher systematically.

Questions and Answers about Chicago SEO

SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization – it's the process of increasing the metrics on a website so that it can show up higher in Google search results, and other search engine results.

SEO works by many factors but the top three are:

  • Creating an intuitive structure on your website, and creating technically correct and well organized content that makes it easy for users (and Google) to navigate it easily.
  • Creating content regularly on the site that answers your customers questions, and is informative for the subject matter you want to rank for.
  • Earning links from authority websites around the web on a regular basis which count as 'votes' for the quality and authority of your site.

SEO is important because if your site isn't visible – it's like it never happened. No one likes to spend a bunch of money on a website and then see it collect dust.

If people can find your website, they have more opportunities to do business with you. It's all about distributing your product in efficient and effective manner, and the way people navigate the web these days is through search engines. If you can get free traffic from Google on a regular basis without paying an arm and a leg for paid aids, it's magic.

It can take over a year – but we like to shoot for significant movement in 6 months, and clear return on investment in 9.

If people tell you a lot sooner than that – it may sound good, but is likely not reflective of reality. Real, long-term change takes longer, but lasts longer as well.

Google paid ads can get your results quickly – but aren't going to do anything for you after you stop spending money.

Chicago SEO can push you up in search results in a way that lasts long after you stop spending money on SEO. Ideally you continually find more ways to rank higher and keep pushing, but once again - the 'half life' for SEO is much longer than paid ads.

1. Go check out Inc.com's verified profiles and get a high authority backlink.

2. Ensure each of your service pages has 700+ words and write more content for them if they don't.

3. Install Yoast SEO if you have a WordPress website, and de-index any pages that don't have 'thin content', or under 200 words and aren't key pages – if they are key pages, increase the amount of content.

Create things on your website that are highly valuable. Create a deep guide for the service that you provide. Create a tool that is helpful for people that are looking for what you provide. Answer questions that people are asking (find them on quora.com or answerthepublic.com)

Find ways to serve your industry with your content and become an authority in your community for they type of work you do or around the subject matter for the products you sell.

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist.read more

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more

Tim and his team were collaborative, responsive, fast and delivered quality work on a tight timeline. The Wordpress pages they built are easy to update, mobile friendly and we plan on using the template they built for landing pages down the road. Tim also provided insightful guidance on SEO and lead generation best practices along the way.read more

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice. Although his services were not a good fit for my needs at this point, I would highly recommend his services for SEO and high raking on google searches. Hook Agency is the way to go!read more

HOOK made the complex topic of SEO far less intimidating. They were patient and understanding with our learning curve. They worked "with" us, educating us as to where the opportunities were. They identified what "they" could do for us and even more valuable, what "we" could and should be doing for ourselves. HOOK and their style of full transparency, had us feeling comfortable immediately and ultimately feeling like we had a trusted partner working for our best interests. We look forward to our future collaboration and success!read more

Super impressed with Tim. I had no idea how to find a web developer in my budget. Even though he was well out of my price range, he still very kindly took the time to suggest a few options and and walked me through how pro web developers operate. Class act! Thank you!!

Very impressed! Long story short, our company website that was hosted elsewhere somehow lost data and went down. When the hosting company failed to do anything about it Hook Agency didn’t hesitate to help. They went above and beyond to get us back up and running. They made us feel confident and comfortable with what they were doing and explained everything each step of the way. I would definitely recommend them!read more
