SEO for Contractors
Our goal, get your website seen by more people, turn those people into leads, sales and customers.
The stigma over what is search engine optimization (SEO) is apparent, no matter where you look for advice or information. Our SEO service for contractors eliminates that stigma. We answer all your search engine optimization questions, so you know what we are doing for you.
It is no voodoo tech stuff. SEO is not a cure-all for businesses. But it can fit into a company’s overall business strategy in several ways.
As a business owner, you want your website to rank (be on page 1), so you get more customers. That is the primary goal of your SEO efforts.
If you are paying for Google or Facebook ads, if your website is not ranking on the first page for keywords that matter to you or if your website is new, then you should start performing SEO right away.
Every day that goes by that you are not ranking, means fewer calls. A well ranking website gets you those calls.
Too many times when I talk with contractors, they will comment, “I get very little business from my website”.
Truth is, if you don’t work on your website, you won’t magically rank one day. And you are missing out on a lot of customers that do searches daily.
Think about how you search for things.
- Do you go to the 2nd page?
- How far do you scroll down the first page?
If you are like most people, not far.
With contracting and service businesses, people are told to get three estimates. With 9-10 businesses listed on the first page, plus the map pack and paid ads, you can see how important it is to be at the top of the page, when people search.
If you have an emergency type business (Plumbing, HVAC, Roofing, Tree Service), you have to be at the top or in the Google Map pack at the top. People need a repair now. They don’t have time to search, scroll, or hunt for you.
Everybody wants instant these days.
To achieve the goal of getting to the top of the search engine results page (SERP) you need to perform search engine optimization (SEO) on your website.

Some Facts about SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) takes time. It takes time to see the results, and it takes time to perform on your website. But, this should not stop you from doing SEO. When you look at the facts about SEO, and you put a value into place. You can see how valuable search engine optimization is to your website and business. It is a profit generator.
- On the first page alone, the first five organic results account for 67.60% of all the clicks. (Where is your website right now?)
- Google’s search algorithm uses more than 200 factors to rank websites.
- The top 10 ranking factors are:
- High-Quality Content
Website Loading Speed
- 70% of companies see SEO as more effective than Pay Per Click (PPC).
- 75% of the people don’t scroll beyond the first page of search.
- A page ranking on the first position gets 30% of all the clicks.
- 95% of organic traffic on Google in the US was from mobile.
There are many more facts but I don’t want to bore you with the numbers.
Bottom line is if you are not performing website ranking tasks or SEO, you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
The changing reality of the SEO landscape is equal parts fascinating and intimidating.
In 2019 (to date), Google accounted for just over 75% of all global desktop search traffic, followed by Bing at 9.97%, Baidu at 9.34%, and Yahoo at 2.77%.
To win at SEO, you have to play by Google’s rules.
Ranking high on Yahoo or Bing will bring visitors to your site, but companies who rank on Google are most likely getting the most business.
