Despite the cloudy sky reputation of Seattle, it’s pretty easy to have a sunnier schedule for the day. It offers plenty of attractions that will make you feel like you’re having a summer vacation at any time of the year. Seattle is an enormous city–the largest even in the Pacific Northwest– with a diverse population and more than enough parks, trendy neighborhoods, and exciting places to keep you entertained in your entire stay.
Spanning over 500 acres is the Discovery Park that oozes nature reserve vibes instead of staying close to its original form, an urban green space. Its lush trails and a great swath of beachfront are both must-sees for outdoorsy types. See Seattle from above through the observation deck of the Space Needle. Standing at 605 feet tall, this building has become the city’s most iconic landmark, attracting over a million visitors every year. Another unmistakable attraction of the city is the 175-foot Ferris wheel called The Seattle Great Wheel. It’s located by Seattle’s where you can see panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains, the Seattle skyline, and Elliott Bay.
Why search engine optimization (SEO) matters
SEO has continuously evolved from 2013 until today. Likewise, Google has been releasing constant updates and changes to prevent people from gaming the system. Unfortunately, a significant number of SEO firms are yet to adjust to Google’s updated guidelines and instead, just continue using tactics that worked years ago. Even after several years have passed, SEO is still a valid and essential tool for businesses wanting to compete online for customers.
And yes, SEO is still alive, and will likely continue to be for the many years to come. Rather than saying SEO is obsolete, it’s more fitting to say that it’s a misunderstood tool. Since the inception days of Facebook and the surge of Google, Yellow Pages and other similar methods of advertising have been singled out. Ensuring that your site is easily found on the search engines is the primary goal of your SEO campaign. When your company shows up in results when people search for something, it serves as a validation of your company’s credibility. More than 60% of leads from online searches are going to the top 3 search results. It’s high time to get help now!
Not all SEO services are created equal the same way as no two businesses are the same. There are SEO techniques that are against Google’s guidelines, and thus, are deeply frowned upon and penalized. If your site is using the wrong techniques, whether you’re aware of this or not, you could get banned by Google and other search engines. Link building is one of the leading sources of good and bad links. Therefore, it’s essential to know the difference between a natural link building method vs purchased bad links.
How difficult (or easy) is Seattle SEO
The short answer is both. SEO is changing every day as search engines are constantly refining their processes as well. If you aren’t able to keep up with those changes, you could find your site in danger of falling out of the rankings, or worse, getting penalized by search engines. So be careful because what brought you to the top spot might be what will cause you to earn penalties. After all, A gradual yet long-lasting success is always better than an easy and quick but short-lived success.
Google’s ultimate goal is to provide the best search results to its users. If not, then users can easily turn to Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines that can satisfy them. The complexities of their algorithm are what will drive you to keep up with them so your SEO strategies can effective. As an experienced SEO company in Seattle, Bobs SEO is more than capable of keeping up with all those relevant changes in your stead so you won’t have to.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION RANKING FACTORS
It is a well-known fact in SEO circles that there are at least 200 factors when it comes to ranking your website organically through the use of search engine optimization. I have over two decades of experience in SEO and internet marketing. Listed below are ranking factors that I consider to be some of the most important – included with each SEO campaign.
Selecting the proper search terms to target and rank for is one of the most important steps in the “researching keywords” process. We find the best search phrases with the highest buyer intent and chance of a conversion.
It is vital to have a properly structured website. Google must be able to easily crawl and index all pages of your site. Proper internal linking structure is an often overlooked ranking signal and should not be ignored.
Social media has become not only a necessity for your business but also a significant ranking factor where SEO is concerned. We send Google the right social signals so that they will give your business the recognition it deserves.
You should strive for a good user experience for every website visitor that lands on your web page. The longer a visitor stays on your site the better chance that you will convert them into a possible sale.
Not a ranking factor but important nonetheless. Comprehensive, intuitive monthly ranking reports that reveal the daily ranking position over a given time frame for every targeted search term.
Includes all of the ranking factors associated with the actual code of the website URL (or page) you are trying to rank. Examples are title, headline (H1), subheading (H2), page load speed, content length, URL length, and more.
Refers to all of the ranking signals that occur “off-page” (NOT included within the website code). Examples are PR distribution, blog posting, bookmarking, articles submission, authority backlink building, social sharing, and more.
website page speed
Website speed can not be overstated in its importance when it comes to ranking in the search results. Not only does a fast-loading site rank higher, but it also provides a better visitor experience.
