My Core SEO & Link Building Process
Learn my steps for bringing online marketing success.
Website Analysis for SEO & Link Building
I analyze a business websites internal and external attributes to evaluate if it has a solid foundation for my Search Engine Optimization & Online Marketing.
Things I analyze:
- Current links the website has & links of its competitors
- Websites rankings in Google for various keywords
- How strong the websites online visibility is compared to its competitors
- Online Citations (such as Yelp; these help overall local ranking when optimized correctly)
- Reviews (such as from their Google My Business listing and Yelp listing)
- Technical SEO attributes
- On-page SEO attributes
- Platform of website (such as WordPress among many others)
- and...much more
Keyword Targeting for SEO & Link Building
I research and analyze a websites current rankings and some of their competitors to find optimal relevant keywords that their website should be ranking for.
I target both high-volume and low-volume keywords as each is an opportunity to bring traffic. Regarding link building, I find potential opportunities to improve online rankings based on getting those keywords linked to the website I'm optimizing in natural ways. A "natural way" for linking would be suggesting to the website owner to link to a business as "Sacramento based Dentist, Acme 123 Dentistry" instead of the exact keyword found in our research, "Sacramento dentist;" as that could look bad in Google's eyes if it was seen linking to a business from many websites disproportionately compared to naturally. The reason it is bad in Google's eyes is it's considered a link scheme (more info here: Link Schemes explained by Google).
Example of Quality Link Building with anchor text used in a "Natural Way"
- Backlink Client: Purchase Green Artificial Grass
- Backlink Website Example: Low Maintenance Gardening Hacks
- Backlink anchor text used in a "natural way" within sentence: "artificial grass, such as the San Diego Company Purchase Green"
- Backlink anchor text linked to their web page: Purchase Green Artificial Grass San Diego Location
Prospect Outreach for Link Building
Based off my analysis of a website, I then search for websites to get links from that are relevant to the topics of the website. For example, if the website sells lawn products, we find websites that talk about gardening, outdoor style, home decor and other relevant topics to get links from.
Example of Prospect Outreach for Link Building
Here is an example link I acquired for Purchase Green regarding gardening which tied into successfully promoting their keyword "artificial grass" in Google (Their top keyword): Vegetable Garden Tips And Ideas For Using Artificial Grass.
I find well-qualified websites based on a series of attributes such as but not limited to: content relevancy (a gardening website would be relevant content-wise to a online store that sold gardening equipment), location relevancy (if your website caters to people in specific locations, getting links from websites catering to the same location have a bigger impact), website authority, website age, estimated organic traffic and more.
SEO Content & SEO Content Guides for Link Building
I create as well as instruct writers to produce Search Engine Optimized content that helps websites rank quickly. This is done not only through effective keyword usage, but advanced SEO techniques such as Search Intent, Semantic Search, Structured Data (a.k.a Schema Markup) and much more.
As for link building, once I've determined the appropriate websites to get a link back to the business I'm helping, I create content as a guide for the website owner to publish which includes link backs to the business website I'm helping.
The benefits of my link building content guides are:
- It shows the type of content I'd offer as a "guest post" to them that they can publish directly (with their modifications if necessary)
- It can help the website owner get an idea of how they should create their own content about the business I'm helping so they can write and publish in their tone and style which caters to their audience.

Here is an example link I acquired for Purchase Green using the strategy above which helped successfully promote their keyword "artificial grass" (their top keyword in Google: Vegetable Garden Tips And Ideas For Using Artificial Grass.
Link Building Outreach Execution
I successfully perform outreach to the well-qualified websites I find. I perform outreach in various ways such as by phone, e-mail, and the website owner's online form.

Here is an example link I acquired for Purchase Green regarding gardening which helped successfully promote their keyword "artificial grass" (their top keyword) in Google: Vegetable Garden Tips And Ideas For Using Artificial Grass.
Reports & Measuring Performance
I provide reports of work done that utilize data from their Google Analytics to compare results year-over-year to see how much improvement is gained compared to the same time period in the previous year.
I also use premium SEO tools to provide rank reports that provide estimates of rank positions for search terms I'm tracking. I also provide information about their Google My Business (GMB) information, so they can see how many phone calls and other information they've received from their GMB listing.
Example of Reports & Measuring Performance
Here is an example "Video Report" discussing Google My Business (GMB) successful results for a Pest Control client: Pest Control Company Google My Business Proof of Results Video Report.

Improved Search Rankings
I successfully increase traffic to business websites I work with improving their search engine rankings for relevant revenue producing keywords. I do this by helping their website get linked from relevant, reputable websites speaking about topics related to their business, search engine optimized content and much more.
