Everyone gets excited about the flashy website, social media posts, blog articles, videos… all the things you can see. But, the thing that often gets neglected is what is hidden; the technical aspect of your website. This is where our Technical SEO service comes in.
A typical call to Simple SEO
Caller: “Hi, I am looking for someone who can fix my website, it was showing up on Google for lots of keywords and then all of a sudden I can’t find it anywhere”.
Simple SEO: “How long ago did this happen?”
Caller: “Well, it all seemed to start around May of 2022”.
Simple SEO: “Well that is around the time of Google’s helpful content update, and your story is VERY common.”
See the issue we see often is when people ignore the technical aspects of a website, things may go ok for a bit, but when Google updates happen, traffic goes down, people freak out and then they need it fixed now because it wasn’t built properly to begin with.
