The Down-Low on Maryland Search Engine Optimization
SEO is the process of improving the ranking of your web pages on search engines (Google, Yahoo! and Bing). The goal of SEO is to push your web pages to the top of “natural” or “organic” (un-paid) search engine result pages. This way, prospects will find your website when they make search engine queries about your business or brand, as well as products and services you offer.

Why You Need SEO in Maryland
Your digital footprint consists of the places your business is listed or featured online including your social media channels, website, and directory listings (such as Google My Business, Apple Maps, etc.). Search algorithms look for these when ranking your business in their results which is why you need to make sure they are all claimed and optimized.
And, businesses need leads that they can convert to customers. Statistically, SEO ranks highest with growing importance as a source of leads with a ranking of 94%, topping social media, emails and blogs. Studies have shown that the level of SEO being conducted by businesses is directly proportional to their conversion rates.
Our Approach to SEO
Google and other search engines do not respond well to “black hat” SEO efforts. Spamming, keyword stuffing and cloaking can really be harmful to your online presence and cause serious consequences from search engine services. Evans Design & Marketing classifies our methodology as “white hat” because we abide by the latest algorithm updates by Google.
We begin with in-depth research on the most useful keywords your prospects search in Google. Then, we implement complex guidelines and proven techniques in design, coding, content, linking, and promotion of your website.
