Getting to the Root of the Problem
The first thing our team did was to identify the causes of the website’s Google penalty and implement remedies to regain its rankings at the next algorithm update.
With a technical audit, we analyzed the on-page and off-page performance of the website. We reviewed the website’s content and checked its quality and relevance to their audience, target keywords, and overall brand.
Fixing website issues was also a top priority. We dedicated web development hours to fix minor issues on the website, such as slow site speed.
Applying the best practices to elevate their client’s online performance, we recommended our SEO service to build the basics for their website. This includes the following:
Building the Basics
