Fishtank Enterprise SEO Process

Step 1: Keyword Research

Keyword Research is the essential first step of our enterprise SEO process, which uncovers keyword opportunities and informs us of the content you need to reach goals.

  • Keyword Research: We conduct deep keyword research to determine the best keywords your organization should target, and what related keywords your market is searching for at every stage of their journey.
  • Performance Review: We review how you're currently performing on Google, as well as how your competitors are performing to identify any content gaps, and determine the content you'll need to rank and outperform your competitors.
  • Strategic Content Plan: We create a strategic content plan formulated to reach your SEO goals and outrank your competitors. We identify the exact pieces of content and copy you'll need, as well as the existing content that can be updated or repurposed on your site.

Step 2: Audit

Search engines rank your website across many factors. We analyze your website and content across all the elements search engines rank it against and identify the areas that need improvement.

  • On-page: An analysis of your current content, content structure, HTML tags and overall user experience determines what new content needs to be written, what content needs to be updated, and what on-page elements need to be updated in order for you to succeed.
  • Technical: We take a look under the hood and review your website's health from a technical perspective. In 2021, Google is adding more UX signals to its ranking algorithm, making technical SEO especially important. As website developers at our core, we know exactly what it takes to turn a low performing site into a high performing, high ranking site.
  • Link Profile: We review your backlink profile to understand the quality of your backlinks and compare it against your competitors. Your backlink profile is a highly important SEO metric that tells Google how reputable and trustworthy your site is.

Step 3: Optimize

The crucial step is making the changes needed to improve your performance. We optimize your website and content based on the information uncovered in the keyword research and audit, and prioritize items based on biggest impact.

  • Content: We create a content strategy designed specifically for SEO, write the copy that's required to get your website to rank for your targeted keywords, and repurpose your existing copy with the right HTML tags and structured markup that your site needs in order to rank.
  • Technical performance: As an enterprise website development company at our core, our development team will take your website from a slow performing, unresponsive site to a highly performing and ultra fast site that passes Google's technical tests with flying colours.
  • Backlinks: Our link profile team focuses on building you an impressive backlink profile that generates site traffic from other high traffic sites with impressive domain authorities.

Step 4: Reporting

We closely monitor your performance to ensure you're reaching your goals. Our reporting analyzes the results of our work and allows us to see the results it produced, and how you're ranking in search results compared to your competitors.

  • Keyword performance: We monitor your positions and position changes in search results for the keywords you're targeting and the locations that matter to your business, to ensure you're constantly improving and beating your competitors.
  • Custom reporting: Continuous reporting on your website health, high and low performing pages, link profile and query performance gives us a 360 degree view of your website and allows us to continually optimize it.
  • Dashboards: We build branded and personalized dashboards that you can share with internal stakeholders, to show off your new increases in traffic, sales and revenue, attributed from SEO.

Step 5: Repeat

Good SEO is based on continuous review of results and doing the work required to succeed, day in and day out. Any business that's serious about SEO at an enterprise level will tell you there are no rest days, and we don't rest either.

  • Optimization: We continually optimize your website from technical, on-page and backlink perspectives using the reporting as a guide to determine what changes we need to make to produce the biggest impact.
  • Reporting: Continuous periodic reporting is required to monitor your success and ensure the changes we're making are producing results.
  • Repeating: The process is repeated, and doesn't stop when you achieve your results. Because Google's algorithm is constantly updating and your competitors are also optimizing their sites and writing new content, we keep repeating this process even when you reach your goals.

Enterprise SEO Service FAQs

What is Enterprise SEO?

Enterprise SEO is a large-scale set of SEO strategies applied specifically to an enterprise organization, to boost their organic performance.

It is a different SEO strategy to small business SEO or traditional SEO. Enterprise organizations require a different SEO strategy because the websites of enterprise organizations are usually larger, global and multilingual, and contain content across multiple domains and subdomains.

Enterprise businesses also have different business and SEO goals to that of a small business that require a different strategy to meet.

What does an enterprise organization look like?

Enterprise organizations are operating at scale, with billions of dollars in revenue and employees in the hundreds or thousands.

They usually operate in multiple countries and industries, and have not only a large website with thousands of pages, but usually different domains and subdomains as well.

What's the difference between Enterprise SEO and small business SEO?

Small Business SEO

Just as the name suggests, small business SEO is made up of SEO tactics that are implemented for a small business and small website, containing just a few, or few hundred pages.

Small business SEO is more traditional, and focuses on long-tail, more achievable keyword acquisition and usually localized searches. An example of small business SEO would be targeting the search term 'Calgary mechanic'.

Enterprise SEO

Enterprise SEO is made up of SEO tactics that are implemented for a large enterprise and website, usually containing thousands of webpages.

Enterprise SEO focuses more on targeting highly competitive, short-tail keywords across a global, multilingual presence.

It requires a scalable, smart and strategic approach with a lot more planning, reporting, analytics, automation, processes and proactivity and is designed to withstand fluctuations in Google’s algorithm.

How do SEO tactics differ between traditional SEO and enterprise SEO?

Small business SEO tactics tend to focus on:

  • Localized searches
  • Long-tail keyword targeting
  • Meta-data
  • Google my business listings
  • Desktop friendly UX
  • Basic HTML tags

Enterprise SEO tactics tend to focus on:

  • Global and multi-lingual searches
  • Short-tail, competitive keyword targeting
  • Schema markup and structured data
  • Snippet targeting
  • Complex HTML
  • JavaScript tracking tags
  • Mobile UX
  • LCP, FID & CLS
  • Site speed and rendering
  • Development
  • Voice search
  • Link building & domain authority
  • Competitor research
  • Social media and social proof

Enterprise SEO usually involves a more aggressive and agile approach to SEO, with deeper reporting and analytics, and more advanced techniques.

Why should I care about SEO?

#1 People trust Google search results

Having a top search result increases trust for your business.

Users are more and more skeptical of ads, and roughly about 30% of all Internet users in 2020 had an ad-blocker installed on their browser.

Visitors put their trust in Google to display only the best results for their searches, so if your website is in the #1 spot, they’re going to trust your brand, and associate it with #1 for whatever it is they are searching for.

#2 An edge against your competition

Optimized websites have more visitors & make more sales.

Google receives over 63,000 searches per second everyday.

If you’re receiving visitors to your website from those searches, that automatically increases your ability to convert those visitors into leads.

Also, Google’s entire algorithm is set up to reward websites with a great user experience, so part of SEO is to also improve a visitor’s experience on your site, resulting in a higher conversion rate.

SEO is a strategic competition because you are competing against your competitors and other businesses for the #1 position.

If you can beat your competitors to page 1, or even the #1 position, you have a higher chance of converting them into a sale.

They don’t say the best place to hide a dead body is on page 2 for nothing. Apparently 75 percent of users stick to the first page of search results, with only 25% going to page two.

#3 Better user experience

SEO improves user experience and usability of your site.

One of the aspects of technical SEO is designed to make your website fast, easy to navigate and user friendly.

Couple that with content that’s designed to attract and convert your customers at every stage of their journey and you’ll also give your visitors a stellar experience on your site, leading to a higher conversion rate.

How do I know if I need enterprise SEO?

You need SEO if you're a business that wants to be competitive and receive more leads and website traffic, for a better ROI. You qualify for enterprise SEO if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • Your website is large (usually thousands of pages)
  • You business is a large organization
  • You have a global presence
  • You use an enterprise level CMS
  • You already successfully rank for many short-tail keywords
  • Your business focuses on ads as their primary marketing channel

If you meet any of the criteria above, you need enterprise SEO services to ensure your website is able to rank well for competitive short-tail keywords.

Since many enterprise business dismiss SEO as a 'too-hard' channel and focus solely on advertising, this gives many business an advantage to compete successfully and receive a stream of leads and website traffic from search, with a great ROI.

My competitors are already doing well, do I have a chance to outrank them?

It's never too late to start investing in SEO and no one's position is guaranteed in search results, meaning that you can take out someone's position no matter how long they've kept it for.

It is, however, going to take work and consistency as well as a killer strategy to beat your competition if they're already performing well.

You're going to have to perform better than them across a number of SEO elements and that's completely achievable, it all depends on how much time and effort you put into it.

Time to start taking back that organic traffic that could be yours!

How does SEO compare to SEM/PPC ads?

PPC ads

You end up paying more for PPC ads because you're paying every time a user clicks your ad (hence the name pay per click).

While ads appear at the top of the search results page, there is limited real estate.

Since there's limited ad space with PPC ads, you're entered into a bidding system that rewards the highest bidders and drives up the cost of the ads.

With the rise in popularity of PPC ads, most PPC ad platforms like Google Ads and Facebook Ads have become more expensive.

Another thing to keep in mind is that roughly 30% of people have ad blockers today, and an even larger percentage are skeptical of ads, believing that they trust Google over an ad placement.

SEO

SEO as a strategy is much more affordable and yields a higher ROI since traffic from organic search using SEO is free, so you're not paying for clicks in a bidding system.

People trust Google and organic search results much more than they trust ads, with most people avoiding clicking on ads altogether, or installing an ad blocker.

While there are more advantages to SEO than there are to PPC ads, it's important to keep in mind that SEO takes time, patience and work since visibility for desired keywords isn't quick or easy, but the results are worth it and come with a higher ROI than PPC ads.

How much does enterprise SEO cost?

Most businesses spend somewhere from $3,000 to $15,000 per month on SEO for their enterprise level business.

Since SEO requires constant upkeep, you'll want to look for a partner that does continuous optimization and reporting.

Keep in mind that with SEO you get what you pay for.

Be weary of businesses offering deals that seem too good to be true with low payments and work that sounds like it will be done in another continent.
