Citations are essentially instances on the web that your Business name, full address, and website are mentioned or listed. These citations are a component getting listed in the Google Places A-G map. We build citations both on our network and through common local websites such as Yellow Pages and Yelp.
Having a Google+ Brand page is crucial to ranking in the A-G positions of the Google Maps and Places results. If you don’t already have a Google+ local brand page we will get one created for you, or provide the training to teach you exactly how you can do it on your own account.
After we do the proper keyword and competitive research and decide on what primary keywords to target we will need to access your website. If you are running a CMS like WordPress or Joomla, we’ll need you to create a user for us. If you have a simply html-based website, we will need FTP details to make the changes.
During the on-site SEO process, we will make sure all changes get approved prior to changing. We will only touch the title tags, meta-tags, and recommend small changes to wording and content.
Maybe. When you cancel your subscription we will take down the links to your website that are on all the sites and blogs in our network. This means that your website will lose as many as 30+ links overnight. If these links were making up the most part of your link profile and SEO work, then chances are your rankings will decrease. Where they end up is not entirely sure.
The Google Algorithm update, named Penguin, rocked the SEO world and challenged a lot of the common knowledge and practices in the industry. Fortunately, we have been able to avoid this “penalty” for the most part (and successfully recovered the sites that were affected.)
We have a fairly conservative approach to the links in our network. A rough breakdown will look something like: 30% of links with naked URL, 20% of links with your brand or business name, 10% of links with random “click here” or “this website” anchors, 20% of links with a variety of long tail keywords and/or related keywords, andonly 20% of links with exact match anchors.
Absolutely! Although our web design packages are fully managed for the first year, meaning you can send us your content to post to the website whenever you like, you may want to post it directly yourself. Posting your own content allows you to play with it to see what looks best on the site and is generally faster, since you can post it whenever you like rather than waiting 24-48 hours for us to complete the changes for you.
With all of our website designs, you don’t have to worry about messing anything up because you never have to touch the code yourself! You simply login to our WordPress admin panel, look under “Pages” for page content or “Posts” for news/blog articles, and start writing. Best of all, if you run into an issue, we’re standing by to take care of it for you. If you make a change you don’t like, we can easily revert the page or post to a previous version: we’ve got you covered!
Yes! Although security compliance prohibits you from taking payment through your own credit processor without our e-commerce add-on, you can direct people to pay through a third party gateway like PayPal, Stripe or 2Checkout. Simply create a ‘products’ page and copy and paste the PayPal (or other provider) payment buttons/code they provide you with onto the page. All set!
Our e-commerce add-on integrates considerably more smoothly with your site design and allows you to capture your products and client data in a self-maintained database. It also manages product stock, shipping calculations to multiple destinations with variable pricing, provincial tax rates, product variations, coupons, and tons more. If you’re looking for a professional website for selling your products, then we highly recommend purchasing our e-commerce add-on rather than building the product catalogue with WordPress pages yourself.
While we are researching the perfect design options for you, we request that you provide us with the content you would like on each page of your site. This often includes content (including images and video if available) for the following general pages:
Indeed you do. Self-service hosting is the industry we originally started in over ten years ago. This means you get access to the Websavers client centre for administering your account. What can you do with the client centre?
