Toronto SEO – Our Approach

If you’re a home service or local business in Toronto, you want to show up on Google in two key areas. The listings in the maps section and the listings underneath. These are more commonly referred to as:

  • Local SEO (maps)
  • Organic SEO (the listings underneath)

In order to maximize your visibility on Google’s search results page, you need to show up in high in Google Maps.

Google will typically take the top 3 ranking Google Maps listings and display them on Page 1 of the search results, ahead of the ‘organic’ listings.

In order to get you ranked higher in this key area of the search results page, we will work on creating/updating your listing, ensuring your overall website and the page connected to your listing is thoroughly optimized, and raising your websites authority & trust by building citations and relevant local links back to your website.

Organic SEO

This is the section of the search results page that SEO’s have traditionally worked on. These were the original search results listings, before ads, snippets, maps listings and products got added in.

They remain a highly used part of the search results page and play a key role in helping to market your home services.

There’s two key areas buckets of work that drive optimization efforts here:

On Page SEO Optimization

Tuning the technical side of your website is half the battle from a Website Optimization standpoint. The other half of an effective SEO strategy for your Plumbing & HVAC business is unique pages for all your services and the top cities & neighborhoods you service. Our copy writing team will write unique content for the top Plumbing & / or HVAC services and of the sub-cities in your service area (8 content pieces included).

We will then incorporate that fresh content into the website with proper on-page optimization.

Off Page SEO Optimization

Google rewards websites with higher rankings, that it knows, likes and trusts. Much like your customers. The way that we get google to increase it’s trust that your business is real and respected, is by creating relevant links back to your website from other websites.

This is one of those activities that not only helps with Organic SEO, but helps with Local SEO as well! So it’s a critical piece of the strategy that is a big focus. We discuss some of the tactics we use in the next section.

Linkbuilding & Website Authority Development

In order to power up your Local & Organic SEO rankings, there’s another thing that’s needed – Good quality, relevant links.

Google sees links as votes from other websites. Depending on who’s voting for you, Google will begin increase there level of trust in your website & maps listing, and reward you with higher rankings. 

It is essential that these links are created in a natural way and come from websites that would make sense linking to you, otherwise you risk Google penalizing your website and demoting your website, or dropping you out of search rankings completely.

That’s why it’s critical that the SEO partner you pick understands how to build the right links for a local or home service business and puts in the time and effort required to obtain them.
