SEO Agency for Your Business

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) from an expert SEO company can help your business rank higher in Google, Bing, and other search engines to achieve bottom-line results. Our team of SEO experts have increase LEADS (not just traffic) 200–600% for small businesses in Columbus, Noblesville, and surrounding areas of the midwest. Makeshark is a top SEO agency because we provide a clear SEO strategy, regular communication, and a 24/7 dashboard of goals, action items, and analytics for 100% transparency of our ROI.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) marketing first and foremost requires extensive knowledge of the data points that affect search ranking and then the tools and skills to accurately track and improve search position to the top or first page of search results. Data that affects SEO includes keywords, content, URL structures, website engagement, competitors, and various others—not to mention if there is even enough monthly traffic volume to make a specific SEO strategy worth it.

Another thing that plays a huge role in improving SEO is whether or not high ranking domains are linking back to your website (sometimes called "backlinks"). Backlinks can come from social media, directory listings, or engagement on forms. In addition, we review your competitors' backlinks to find additional opportunities. Once visitors on your website or ecommerce store, it is important that the user-experience is attractive and intuitive to lead them to your call-to-action or purchase.

The best SEO companies know that optimization takes continuous learning, monitoring, and improving over time for results within search engine optimization. We use research to help project, define, and target areas of opportunity over competitors. An agency should always provide a solid base of organic optimization prior to engaging with PPC (pay per click) advertising. With users continually increasing "ad blindness" (the tendency for people to know where to look for ads and skip over them), we believe that "organic" methods of website traffic are better than paid.

1. Google Ads & PPC

Google Ads uses pay-per-click (PPC), meaning you only pay if someone clicks on your ad. Makeshark helps our clients optimize their ad campaigns by focusing on keywords around their most profitable products or services. Our 24/7 SEO dashboards show impressions, clicks, and total spend so together we can pivot spending in real time to get the most ROI. That's just another benefits of working with a SEO firm in Ohio and Indiana.

2. Google My Business

Google My Business (GMB) can be even more important than traditional SEO for local businesses, especially because customers can easily find a phone number and directions right on their phone. Even if your business doesn't have a physical address, or sells nationwide, GMB can still help your overall SEO ranking. Makeshark's team of SEO experts near you can help you optimize your GMB listing, get 5-star online reviews, and stay up-to-date on latest features to take your business to the first page.
