SEO Toronto

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is an online marketing strategy aimed at producing targeted and relevant traffic from Google’s search engine results page on a variety of keywords organically’. In order for Google to place your website on the first page for a given query, your site must be recognized as one of the best results to deliver. Consultus Digital is the leading SEO company in Toronto, combining decades of experience with the latest techniques to get you the sales you deserve.

What is
SEO?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of convincing Google’s search engine – and your target audience – that your website is the most relevant to show for a particular search query.

These are the results that appear on Google’s search engine results page (SERP) that are not paid ads. It can also be referred to as an “organic,” “natural,” and “earned” result, as you have not paid Google to artificially appear at the top of the SERP.

The advantage of working with an SEO company is that, when done right, your website will appear on Google for a variety of different terms and phrases that are relevant to your business without you having to pay every time a user clicks on your link.

What is SEO? - Consultus Digital Play icon

Meet Steve. He’s a personal injury lawyer who is much too skinny because of all the running around he does chasing ambulances to get clients all day. He should be at his office, taking calls and answering emails from potential clients that find him on Google after they experience a major boo-boo, but his website doesn’t show up in search engines!

Don’t be like Steve, Consultus.

What Steve needs is SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization. It can be a lot of work because it’s a lot like bodybuilding. You need the right ingredients, and you need to work out consistently over time to build rankings and CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES. First, we do On-Page Optimization. Just like a bodybuilder maps out a training regimen for repetitions and sets to build muscle and get noticed, we must build your website out to have more pages and more optimized content to get noticed by Google for everything you do. Second, we do off-page optimization, just like a bodybuilder who wants to be the next Mr. Olympia. He shows off, competes and gets judges to take notice and vote for them. It’s the same thing for your website and search engine optimization; Consultus will get other sites to notice, reference and link to you. This makes your website more famous and gets Google to notice you – pushing up your rankings. Best of all, as your SEO company, we do all the heavy lifting so you can stay focused on your business. We take puny and weak websites and PUMP THEM UP to the top of Google’s results. Want to know more? Contact us by giving us a call or GET THE CHOPPA and meet us at the office.

SEO - Consultus Digital

The more terms you can show up for, and the more popular those terms are, the more clicks your website will receive.

This results in higher levels of natural, organic website traffic that will result in the intended action being taken. For some, the intended action is a phone call, a form submission, a purchase or clicks on ads. The aim of SEO is to not only show up on Google searches, but more importantly, show up on the first page of the search results. While a website might show up on the second, third, fourth or fifth page, a searcher is unlikely to go past page one. Once you are on page one of the Google SERP, you’ll want to appear as high up on page one as possible.

How Does
SEO Work?

Google is the dominant search engine because it did the best job at delivering search results.

Google’s mission early on was to organize the information on the world wide web and provide users with the best information that matched their query. When someone wants to prove a point, they’ll say, “Google it.” They don’t say “Yahoo! it” or “Bing it,” and that’s because we have been accustomed to receiving better and more accurate results from Google. This is why if you’re looking for a family lawyer, you won’t find employment lawyers, personal injury lawyers, or dentists – you’ll find family lawyers. After all, if you didn’t find what you were looking for, you might choose another search engine. 

Appearing on Google’s first page naturally is the holy grail of all online marketing because you’re in the right place, at the right time, and in front of a user that has specifically looked for something you offer. The competition to appear on page one varies by industry and geography, and the rule of thumb is (as it is anywhere), the most there is to be gained, the more competition there will be.

Why is
SEO Important?

SEO as a service is vital to your digital marketing strategy. It exposes your website to potential customers looking specifically for your products and services without the need to pay for expensive ad platforms.

When done right, your website can rank for many terms and phrases and draw in visitors for much cheaper than if you paid Google for ads. The gains achieved by increased organic traffic should be compared to what the cost would have been to gain that same traffic through paid advertising. Most businesses we deal with will continue to see organic traffic and lead gains for years while paying the same bill for the best SEO each month. Further, most leads and sales are derived from earned placement on page one of Google. In short, SEO is crucial because it often generates the best ROI, especially long term.

SEO Frequently Answered Questions

SEO is a long-term strategy that requires consistent optimization and content marketing to achieve the desired results. Google will become suspicious if a website suddenly has mountains of content, whereas if that content is built up over several months, it will see it as a quality resource to display to its users. The best results from any SEO campaign will usually take between 6 to 9 months but will give business benefits that will last for years to come.

SEO companies require a constantly changing marketing strategy, and so search engine optimization needs to be monitored and improved every day. Google changes their search ranking algorithm several times per year, which can dramatically impact how Google views your website. Consultus Digital makes staying on top of the latest SEO trends our number one priority, so we always deliver the best service for our clients. Contact us to learn more!

One of the key aspects of a good SEO campaign is cultivating quality backlinks to your website. Google views any website with multiple, high-quality backlinks as a reputable resource to display in its searches and will display these websites higher up in the search rankings. As a leading SEO company, we use the latest white hat SEO strategies, including guest posting, actively reaching out to high domain authority websites, and comprehensive internal linking to help our clients achieve success.

You may have heard of black hat or white hat when referring to hackers on the internet. The terms also apply to SEO. White hat SEO involves using SEO techniques approved by Google, and that could not be misconstrued by the search engine as trying to game the system. Conversely, black hat SEO techniques are any methods Google has explicitly said they will penalize or that tries to exploit loopholes in Google’s algorithm. While black hat techniques tend to offer faster results, the gains are usually short-lived as Google cracks down on black hat websites and punishes them by lowering their SERP ranking or even de-indexing them from Google altogether.

Consultus Digital only uses the most trusted white hat SEO techniques to ensure our clients are protected and gain the maximum long-term benefits SEO can offer.

In the past, SEO was a much simpler, almost mathematical approach to ranking higher in Google. The old search algorithm placed keyword density at the top of its importance factors, favouring any website that contained the highest number of keywords as the top results. This meant that anyone could place top in Google simply by stuffing their webpage with the keywords they were interested in ranking for. This did not make for great content for Google’s users, and they began to stop turning to the search engine for their information needs. Google realized this and updated its algorithm to have a more sophisticated and holistic view of each website, considering keyword density and length of content, multimedia, appropriate headings, and more. Modern SEO requires a more robust and creative approach, including fresh blog content, updated website copy, and a greater focus on images and videos to rank first on Google.

Google is notoriously secretive on how they rank websites, including how much keyword density plays a role in their current ranking algorithms. The general rule of thumb for SEO-optimized content is to aim for a 1-3% keyword density in any piece of content. This will indicate to Google that the content is relevant to a user’s search without appearing like you are trying to keyword stuff, which Google penalizes.

In the past, many SEO experts would testify that backlinking is the most important and influential component of an SEO campaign. However, as Google has continued to improve their search algorithm, it is becoming clear that backlinks are not the powerhouses that they used to be. High-quality content, images, and videos are all now considered more important in achieving good rankings. That being said, a combined approach that includes an effective content strategy supported by quality backlinks will achieve the best results.
