7 core features of our SEO consulting services
Our SEO consulting services provide your business with a complete solution to SEO consulting. That’s why they include a range of deliverables, from analyzing your website’s design to assessing your technical SEO.
The most impactful service deliverables, however, include:
1. SEO audit
Whether your company does or doesn’t use SEO, an SEO audit is essential.
With an SEO audit, your SEO consultant can learn how well you follow SEO best practices, where you rank in search results, and what off- and on-page elements of your site need addressing first. Your audit forms the basis for your consultation.
A few examples of what our SEO audits look at include:
- Internal linking structure
- Image optimization
- Duplicate content
- Keyword rankings
- Keyword traffic
- Website conversion rates
- Broken or redirected links
Since our SEO consulting company features 450+ experienced SEOs, we have the resources to take an in-depth look at your website. We can also partner you with a consultant that has experience in your industry, whether it’s manufacturing, healthcare, or ecommerce.
2. Local SEO audit
A local SEO audit is critical for businesses, as local searches have magnified in recent years. Just in the past few years, for example, searches featuring the phrase “near me” have increased by more than 500%.
That’s why our SEO consulting services include a local SEO audit.
As a part of your local SEO audit, your dedicated consultant will research and analyze your presence in local search results. They’ll review your Google Business Profile, for example, and compile actionable recommendations for using and optimizing your profile for SEO.
They’ll also check for your presence in other local listings, like Yelp, Apple Maps, Facebook, and more.
3. Link audit
Your linking strategy serves a critical part in your SEO strategy. That’s why our SEO consulting company looks at your internal and external linking structure and status. We check how you link to pages on your site, as well as how other websites link to yours.
For many clients, this part of our SEO consulting services provides immense value.
Links often pose a challenge to businesses. Whether you’re trying to motivate other websites to link to yours or build an internal linking strategy for pages across your site, links will often cause frustration and headaches.
Our SEO consultants, however, aim to make the process easy-to-understand and simple.
Plus, we provide actionable advice for improving your linking strategy. For example, your consultant may recommend focusing on content marketing to develop and drive links with viral content or creating sidebars on specific website pages to enhance internal linking.
4. Competitor analysis
Understanding the rankings, keywords, and strategy of your competitors is essential. With insight into their SEO approach, your consultant can offer step-by-step recommendations for improving your plan so that you can outrank top competitors in search results.
Our SEO competitor analysis services focus on:
- Online competitors’ SEO
- Offline competitors’ SEO
- Competitor market share
- Competitor search rankings
- Competitor content
- Competitor backlinks
The in-depth evaluation allows us to provide unmatched guidance for your SEO. Unlike other SEO consulting companies, ours offers actionable recommendations that do not copy-and-paste your competitor’s strategy.
Instead, they target competitor weaknesses and high-value opportunities for your business.
5. Keyword research
As your Internet marketing SEO consultant, we’ll research potential keywords for your company to target.
These keywords can range from transactional phrases to informational ones. Generally, our consultants will compile both transactional and informational keywords. Both keywords offer value because they focus on the bottom and the middle of the buying funnel.
When researching and compiling keywords, your consultant will consider the following factors:
- The keyword’s competition or how difficult it will be to rank for
- The keyword’s cost-per-click (CPC) value or how much financial value it offers to companies
- The keyword’s search volume or how often people search for it
Our SEO consultants often find high-value keywords for clients because they invest the time to learn about your audience, products or services, and goals. With a better understanding of your company and clients, your consultant can research and discover keywords your competitors missed.
Depending on your keyword recommendations, your consultant may suggest using our AI SEO content writing service. This service can help you optimize existing site content fast because it provides you with a content outline, title tag suggestions, and more.
It’s a quick guide for writing fresh, SEO-friendly content that’s worthy of ranking on page one.
6. Website usability analysis
A comprehensive website usability analysis also comes with your SEO consulting services.
In SEO, the usability of your site matters for several reasons. It’s a direct measurement of how people interact with and use your website. If no one can use your site, they’re not going to stay on it. Search engines can see that and will lower your rankings in response.
As your partner, we don’t want that to happen to your business.
That’s why our SEO consultancy spends time browsing, using, and navigating your site. We look at critical SEO ranking factors like your page speed and mobile-friendliness. Our consultants also check for broken and redirected links, known as 404s and 301s.
From our analysis, we can provide actionable advice for improving your site’s usability, like:
- Compressing current and future site images
- Creating a consistent website navigation bar
- Adopting a responsive design
In most cases, these recommendations will require a team member with design and development experience. If you don’t have the in-house resources, WebFX can help. We offer services for improving your page speed, for example, and web design services for making your site accessible on any device.
7. SEO report
Finally, our SEO consulting services come with an SEO report.
This report summarizes your consultant’s findings and recommendations. Generally, your SEO consultant will review this report with your team via a phone or video call, which makes it easy for you to ask questions.
With your SEO report, your team can begin improving your SEO strategy.
If you decide that you need help, WebFX is here. We offer SEO services, as well as local SEO, enterprise SEO, and ecommerce SEO services that can implement and build on all your consultant’s recommendations.

How can SEO consultant services help my business?
Investing in SEO consultant services can benefit your company in a few ways, including:
Grow your rankings
As search results become more crowded, it’s becoming essential to earn the top spot.
For perspective, the top three search results attract 75% of all clicks. You can’t afford to rank at the bottom of page one in 2020. If you’re finding yourself on the lower end of page one — or page two or beyond — an SEO consultant can help you get to the top of page one.
With our SEO consulting services, for example, your business can learn which keywords offer you the most value and deserve your attention. You can also learn how to improve your overall SEO, like by increasing your site’s speed, making your website responsive, and more.
Even if you follow SEO standards to a tee, a consultant can provide a new and fresh second opinion.
Grow your traffic
When it comes to SEO, many companies focus on rankings and traffic. Bringing more traffic to your website can help you achieve more high-impact goals, like earning more leads, sales, store visits, and phone calls.
As the top-ranking page earns 33% of all search traffic, you want that number one spot.
Again, SEO consulting companies like WebFX can help you find ways to achieve that position. For instance, your consultant may recommend attracting backlinks to a page via outreach or targeting a keyword that offers similar value but with less competition.
Either way, if you’re struggling to bring organic traffic to your website, an SEO consultant can help.
Grow your leads
SEO can also help your business attract more qualified leads. Targeting keywords with a specific intent, for instance, can connect you with the leads that matter most to your company. You curate your traffic and focus on your ideal lead.
Whether you’re managing a high- or low-ranking site, you may struggle with lead generation. You may find yourself attracting low-value leads, for example, or zero leads. A consultation with an SEO specialist can help you find out why.
Your SEO consultant, for example, may discover that your keywords targeted users with an intent that differs from your ideal client. They’re interested more in a free trial or coupon, for example, than actually signing up or paying for a product.
Invest in SEO consulting services to improve your online lead generation strategy.
Grow your sales
Almost all companies invest in search engine optimization to grow their sales and revenue. SEO can help you do that. If you do not see sales from your efforts, though, an SEO consultant can provide insight into why.
Consultants can look at several areas, including:
- On-page SEO
- Off-page SEO
- Calls to action (CTAs)
- Keyword targeting
These areas can all offer answers as to why people aren’t buying your products or services. If you operate offline, you may need to evaluate some of your in-store experiences, like customer service or product quality.
Your SEO consultant, however, can alert you to online issues and provide advice.
Grow your business
Investing in SEO consultant services can also help your company solve one of its biggest challenges: Growing. Whether you’re struggling with a specific SEO issue, like low conversion rates or low rankings, your SEO can audit your strategy and offer your team actionable steps for achieving growth.
They can also tailor their recommendations to your specific goals.
If you’re looking to sell more of a specific product or service, for instance, they can take additional time to audit those pages and research relevant keywords. Or, if you’re curious about attracting more links to your site, they can focus their efforts on your backlink profile.
Either way, when you choose WebFX, you can trust our SEO consultants will help you grow.
We foster and form long-term partnerships so that your business has long-term results.
