Engineering SEO: Our Approach

Our approach to SEO is based on our empirical study of Google’s Algorithm, and our understanding of the philosophy driving Google’s updates over the past 12 years. Simply put, Google seeks to connect searchers with content that directly answers the intent of their search. As a result, securing high search rankings long-term requires two things:

  1. A comprehensive understanding of search intent, and
  2. A writing team capable of delivering content perfectly tailored to that intent

This is much more easily said than done, particularly when it comes to highly technical fields. That’s why the most common challenge engineering companies face when engaging with an SEO agency is finding a partner who truly understands their business. To address this challenge, our engineering SEO teams include:

  • An SEO strategist who will research transactional keywords and develop a custom 12-month Hub and Spoke-based SEO strategy
  • Writers experienced in working with subject matter experts to create industry-leading content
  • An Editor to conversion optimize each piece of content and ensure it adheres to your firm’s tone and branding guidelines
  • Web Developers to resolve any technical issues that may prevent your pages from ranking, and build blogs and landing pages on your website
  • A Graphic Designer to create original graphics to quickly demonstrate complex engineering concepts, making your content stand out from your competitors
  • A Reporting Specialist who will ensure that the campaign stays on track, and generates real ROI for your firm
  • A Campaign Manager to serve as your main point of contact for the entire campaign, and as project manager for the team

By the end of a campaign, we aim to turn your website into a comprehensive demand generation system, allowing your team to focus on delivering high quality engineering services to your customers.
