Services & How Horton Helped
Search Engine Optimization
Identifying keywords was our SEO team’s first challenge. However, after conducting a careful keyword audit and research, we were quickly able to identify keyword inconsistencies and make informed recommendations and implement them across the Fast-Fix TN website.
When auditing a website before making SEO improvements, our team looks at long-tail keywords that have high search volume, low difficulty for ranking, and are related to the kind of business a client of ours wants to attract visitors for. We use a variety of tools to accomplish this including HubSpot, Moz, and Google’s Keyword Planner. Once the keywords are identified, we then incorporate into the framework of the website. For Fast Fix TN, terms like “watch repair”, “jewelry repair”, “engraving”, and more were incorporated into the website’s H1s, H2s, URLs, page titles, and meta descriptions. This helps Google understand what kinds of content users can expect when navigating to internal pages, and improves SERP results.
