Search Engine Optimization Climb The Charts & Join The Hall Of Fame

Here’s a secret about SEO - it’s not as complicated as some experts would have you believe

Ranking for keywords and showing up in search engine results just takes the right strategy and implementation.

Then, BINGO. You’re taking center stage. 

But here’s the thing…

Just when you’re on top… 

The algorithm changes.

The thing with SEO is, you’ll never completely finish optimizing your site because the rules for optimization are forever evolving. 

While the core principles remain the same: produce useful content that’s easy to find, the best practices for how to do that are always changing.

Which is why you need a team of fun-loving nerds to stay on top of the latest trends and make adjustments as needed to keep your site on top.

You’ll have access to reports that uncomplicate SEO and make it easy to understand the status of your site. And you’ll get a long-term strategy to rank for your chosen keywords. We won’t just expertly optimize your site; we’ll take the mystery out of the process so you’ll understand how to get the best results.

SEO Here's What Goes Into An Effective Search Engine Optimization Strategy...

Search Engine Optimization or "SEO" for short is the act of optimizing your websites organic ranking for search engines. What most agencies will not tell you is that it's not as difficult as it sounds and is something that can easily be learned. However, most people do not do their own search engine optimization simply because there's so much time invested to make sure it is done correctly.

Quality, Valuable Content

You've probably heard that "content is king" and we couldn't agree more.  The main purpose of a search engine is to deliver search results that are most relevant to what a user is searching. When you create quality, valuable content you increase the time spent on your website, decrease your bounce rate and ultimately add authority and credibility to your website which boosts your search rankings.

Internal & External Links

Links to and from your website tell search engines that you are a credible source of information.  We're not just talking backlinks here, which are links from other websites back to your website. Internal linking between your pages and defining your "pillar content" is equally, if not more important.

Clean Source Code

The code that powers your website is important because it allows search engines to crawl your website easily and tells the mystical "spiders" what parts of your website are important and how to index it.  It doesn't just stop there, by making sure your pages, products and posts use the proper heading tags, images have alt tags and the like, you can relax knowing that your site is future proof from updates to how search engines index your website.

Schema Mark-up

Have you searched for something before and you see the reviews listed next to products on search engines?  Have you seen things like bulleted lists, recipes or even videos or location information?  This is the power of properly adding schema and rich meta mark-up to your website.

Great company with the strong team who takes care of their customers.
Employees are always happy to assist and answer any questions. They are transparent and pleasant to work with.
I have had Derek work on a couple of websites for me and he has always made the process simple and the outcome has always been exceeding my expectations! I would and do recommend Designloud to friends.
I've known Derek now for a few years and just finished up on my second website Cape Fear Jobs, the first and only dedicated jobs website for the Cape Fear area. Cape Fear Jobs was a project that I personally worked on for just about 2 years and I basically just told Derek what I wanted and how I wanted it laid out. Sent hundreds of documents for content and it was like he was inside of my head, because what the finished product looked like was exactly what I envisioned. He has put a team together that is not only exceptional in talent but well rounded and highly personable with top notch customer service skills. DesignLoud is a business that I would recommend for anyone wanting a quality website and a quality experience. Websites is not all they do, but what my experience is with them, I'd trust them with any project. And my logo looks awesome too!

Anyone please feel free to call or write me and I'd be happy to share my experience with Derek and his team at DesignLoud.

Top Notch. From design to development to building an App for all platforms, these guys can do it all quickly and very reasonably. We have used MANY other developers in the past. None compare to DesignLoud. They really care about how your website does because they take it personally. Thanks a million! We wouldn't exist without you!
I can't really say enough about Derek and his team. My experience with DesignLoud was so starkly different from my experience with any other web designers or graphic artists that I have ever dealt with. They gave me exactly what I asked for and needed, and never tried to "upsell" me on things that I didn't. They cleaned up a HUGE mess that a former designer had left. They are very professional and knowledgeable but never speak over your head. The work is of the highest quality. But I guess I was most impressed with the reasonable price and the speed of the work. I have even had Derek make changes within hours. I realize this may not be possible all the time, but I know he cares about my business and about his work. I think Design Loud is just wonderful, and I am so thankful I found them.
Derek and his staff have helped my business tremendously! I was clueless with how to advertise online and how to financially benefit from our website. He has, very patiently, walked us through the process. Most importantly, he makes himself available to me and my staff. Many times I need last minute adjustments to our website and he immediately responds and takes care of our needs.
