Succeeding Small is dedicated to getting you the right kind of traffic so you can convert website visitors into quality leads. We are focused on the factors that are most important for your business, and align the best SEO practices with your marketing goals.

Why Invest in Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

Proper Search Engine Optimization (SEO) includes several actions, both on your website and off your website, to promote the rankings of specific keywords on your website. The higher you rank for certain terms, the more visible you become to your target audience. Focusing on specific commercial keywords will help drive the qualified traffic you require to accumulate leads.

When you have a strong online presence that frequently appears on search pages, you become an option for your target market to consider. If you are not visible on search engines, your target audience won’t consider purchasing your products or services.

Keyword Research

Many businesses make the mistake of not targeting the right keywords. Even if a small business is aware of which keywords it should be attempting to rank, they may not know what actions to take to increase its visibility. For this reason, we conduct in-depth keyword research and analyze competitors to find out what kind of content you can add to your site to enhance your perceived authority on a topic. The more authoritative you appear for search engines, the more comfortable search engines will be directing users (and hopefully ideal clients) your way.

Competitive Analysis

One of the best ways to form a successful strategy is to find competitors on search engines currently ranking for the items you want to rank for and reverse engineer the factors that are working for them. Having healthy competition is key to determining which strategies you should implement. Not only is it important to identify and analyze successful sites on search engine result pages, but it is also important to conduct a competitive analysis so realistic and achievable goals can be created.

On-Page SEO

In addition to identifying keywords, several On-Page SEO optimizations can be made to your website to make it more suitable for search engines. It’s important to remember that content is only part of the puzzle when it comes to creating a competitive page meant to outrank your competitors. 

You could have the best content on your website, but if the page isn’t optimized properly, then your target audience will probably not be driven to your website.  Content is only as good as the optimization of a page.

We create rankable pages and blog posts to draw the best customers for your services.

Off-Page SEO

Off-site SEO is actions completed somewhere other than your website with the goal of improving your website rankings. Quality backlinks are signals of trust that help search engines decide where they can send their visitors with confidence. This being the case, an appropriate link acquisition strategy is one of the most important steps to take when it comes to Search Engine Optimization. In addition to submitting your website to the appropriate directories, it is also critical to create linkable assets. Linkable assets are items created for the purpose of social sharing.

Technical Optimization

If you’ve had your website for more than a year, it’s likely that there are some errors living on your website. Some common issues we’ve seen include broken links, large image files, and sitemap complications. All of these problems can severely impact the health of your website. If you have any of these website issues, or any other SEO problems, we’ll be able to identify them during your comprehensive site audit. Resolving these issues will improve your site performance and provide a better experience for anyone who visits your website.


Every month, we will send you a detailed SEO report outlining various analytics such as website traffic, organic search growth, page performance, and other related details. We send these monthly SEO reports with the goal of helping you better understand how your website is performing, and how the optimization tactics Succeeding Small has utilized is improving your online presence. We’ll also walk you through your SEO reports to ensure you understand the various analytics it encompasses.

Small Business SEO FAQs

Local SEO involves strategies that make your business more visible in local search results. As long as you're a business with a physical location serving a certain geographic area, you can benefit from local SEO.

At Succeeding Small, we will help you appear in local searches so you can be found by customers when they require your services most.

Technical SEO involves optimizing the infrastructure of your website so it can be more easily crawled and indexed by search engines. Page speed, URL structure, schema, sitemaps, site navigation, all of these technical components require optimization for peak performance.

On-Page SEO involves the optimization of page-specific elements such as HTML source codes, headings, title tags, content, keywords, and internal links. Using special tools, Succeeding Small can make the appropriate adjustments to ensure search visibility and traffic.

Off-Page SEO involves all of the activities you engage in outside your website to increase site rankings. Some off-page SEO examples include acquiring backlinks and promoting linkable assets for social media engagement.

Backlinks represent votes of quality from other sites endorsing the quality or usefulness of your content. Establishing a solid backlink profile will help improve your website's relevance and domain authority, and make it easier for you to rank pages on your site overall. This is why a strategy for acquiring quality link placements is so vital.

Domain Authority is a ranking developed by platforms such as Semrush, Ahrefs, or Moz, to determine how strong a site's backlink profile might be. Some say it's a vanity metric, as there are some methods to trick the ranking, but generally speaking, the higher a site's Domain Authority (or Domain Ranking) the easier it is for content on the site to rank. Backlinks from higher DR sites tend to contribute more authority to a site than backlinks from low DR sites.

Yes, we will! Depending on which kinds of search terms you're trying to boost in relevance, we will optimize all related and supporting content. Making sure your site thoroughly covers the topics of interest will make you appear more authoritative and increase your search visibility. 

It depends on the current state of your website before it falls under our management. It tends to take longer for new sites to rank for their targeted keywords than those that have existed for a few years. However, some businesses will only require a few adjustments before they start seeing results. Constant changes to search engine algorithms make it difficult to give a blanket answer. However, usually after taking the steps to implement all the principles of quality SEO, you should see some results after two to three months.

As soon as keywords on your site are ranking in the top three of the organic search engine results, you should get quality traffic to your site that will convert into customers.

Using Semrush, we can scan all of the pages on your website to check for possible errors and problems. After a thorough scan, the tool provides an overall SEO health score, flags possible issues, and provides possible solutions on how to correct any issues. At Succeeding Small, we check your site frequently to correct possible errors that might be holding it back from running at its fullest potential. Using this tool, we can discover the root of any problem and resolve any obstructions that might be hindering your site’s performance.

Google assesses various signals when deciding whether your site is relevant or not for a given keyword. Meta tags are text snippets that describe a page's content. They don't appear on the page itself, but only in the source code. Meta descriptions are small blurbs that appear under your website title in the search engine results pages that details what kind of information can be found on your page. At Succeeding Small, we make sure both of these items are optimized for any target keywords you are looking to rank for.

When examining the search results on Google, you might have noticed there are two different types of display results: pay-per-click (PPC) and organic results. PPC requires marketers to build campaigns utilizing certain keywords, set a daily budget, and pay a maximum cost per click. You pay every time someone clicks on your ad, and your ads continue to show until your budget runs out.

SEO, on the other hand, gets you more cost-effective clicks. When you're ranking at the top of the search engine results pages for your target keywords, you don't have to worry about ad campaigns. If you can maintain your position, you have the benefit of driving traffic without having to pay for advertisements. A recent study from GroupM UK and Nielsen has shown that over 94 percent of total search engine clicks go to organic search results. People naturally tend to trust organic results over ads.
