Breaking Down our Local SEO Report
Our SEO clients get the standard monthly reports that all the other guys offer. But one thing we like to do to set ourselves apart is give our clients their highlight cover. This is the first page you’ll see on our SEO reports and it gives you a play-by-play of success and growth. We like to give you the goods right up front, and then if you want to deep dive into the stats, they’re listed on the following pages. You see, we listened to the market when we started our SEO services. We kept hearing from clients that they got these in-depth reports but they made no sense to them at all and so they didn’t even really read them. So we wanted to make sure we gave them some bite-sized data right up front that would ease them into the analytics to follow. Here’s an example of one of those reports.

So let’s run through some of these stats and explain them for you.
Keywords are search terms that the general market tend to type when they’re doing a search on Google or other search engines. It’s important that we adjust copy to use real-life terminology that someone outside of your industry would use. Remember, the general public probably won’t search for “Fractional off-site administrative professionals” when trying to find a team of virtual assistants for their business.
This one is pretty straight forward. It explains what position you come up in for different keywords. Remember, usually the first few people on a Google search paid to be there, we don’t count those for rank position. And realistically, most of the market know those people paid to be there and might not be the BEST choice for them.
