What is Enterprise SEO?
Larger organisations have a complex digital presence that has been built and developed with extreme care and precision to reflect all aspects of their enterprise. Enterprise SEO services require strategies to be customised in their approach for each business unit, division or organisation to ensure long term success. Given the size and complexity of enterprise level businesses, building appropriate strategies that are tailored around the business needs and requirements is critical in driving success. A digital marketing strategist will appreciate that an enterprise SEO strategy requires additional considerations given the magnitude of content and links within the enterprise’s website. One of the main issues with an enterprise’s website is that it can cover so many topics, integrate various features and contain many links which may create internal conflicts or unnecessary noise from an SEO perspective. This could act as a negative from Google’s perspective as it will be difficult to determine what in fact your website is an expert at.
SEO strategists understand this dilemma and work with enterprises to customise the SEO strategy per business unit, division or feature of the website so that it aligns together. It is important for SEO technicians to first understand the existing SEO strategy in the context of the enterprise’s digital marketing strategy and suggest improvements for the benefit of the enterprise as a whole. The analysis of current data and search trends needs to be directed to the multitude of products and services offered by the enterprise so that it works effectively without over-promoting only one area of the business. Finding this balance will take time and continuous improvement so that the strategy is completely tailored and customised to the enterprise.Read More Read Less

What does Enterprise SEO require?
Renewed Focus on SEO
Many enterprises consider SEO optimisation at a very late stage. Given the success the enterprise might have during the initial stages of business establishment and development, they may overlook the additional value that SEO optimisation offers and its importance in the overall marketing strategy. A complete digital marketing strategy does require a robust and tailored enterprise SEO strategy because a key marketing channel for any business is their online presence. Given the volume of content on the web and the ever expanding new content being posted every second, trying to expose your business to the right people is not easy and does not happen overnight. Most enterprises have in-house teams who engage external specialists to continuously monitor and manage their marketing strategy in light of SEO developments, latest data and search trends from the consumer market.
Developing an SEO strategy does require a plan to be followed so that there is structure to the process. We understand that content on a website has been added for a reason, so we take our time to understand the purpose and objective. We may recommend that unnecessary content can act as clutter that may distract viewers and contribute to inefficiencies in how visitors navigate through your website. This can occur over time if there is not a website management protocol in place. Unused links, old content pages and misdirecting links can all contribute to a poor user experience (UX). The resulting impact of poor UX is a potential decline in sales, as it drives qualified consumers in the wrong direction. A website cleanse helps prepare for a successful SEO strategy design and implementation.Read More Read Less
Developing an Enterprise SEO strategy
We implement and develop an enterprise SEO strategy approach that is tailored to your business needs and requirements. We aspire to help your enterprise grow with a successful digital marketing strategy that incorporates the best features of SEO optimisation. Our techniques harness established SEO techniques that have proven to be beneficial for many clients. We implement this approach in a customised manner so that it aligns to your enterprise’s objectives and growth trajectory. Here is a summary of how we do it:
- Initial consult: We initially consult with you to learn more about your enterprise. We believe that the more we know about you, your enterprise, its plan and strategy, growth factors and market landscape, we can deliver a targeted and relevant SEO strategy that works. This is the time where you can share what your goals are and what issues you have with your digital marketing strategy so that we can consider and make recommendations.
- Complimentary assessment: To help us assess where we need to pick up from, we conduct a complimentary assessment of your digital marketing strategy and SEO approach so that we understand the current state. This helps us to figure out what has already been done, what has been tried and tested and whether anything critical is missing or deficient from the current approach. We will clarify any queries we have with you so that we have the complete picture.
- Research: We undertake research to determine customer and market data, keyword trends, industry trajectory, competitor landscape and other factors to help us understand the scope and the techniques that we need to apply. In particular, it is our goal to help your enterprise outperform your competitors in relation to the SEO strategy.
- Approval: We then report back to you with our observations. We share what we have seen, what has not worked, what we will do and how we will do it so that we are fully transparent with the SEO optimisation implementation. This is the time for you to ask questions, challenge our approach and suggest changes so that we can align the overall strategy with your expectations.
- Implementation: Once we have received sign-off from you, we commence the implementation phase and this is when our engineers and technicians commence the technical work. We provide coverage over all aspects of SEO strategy so that you do not have to worry about any particular aspect. We can also work with your in-house team if that is the preferred option.
- Review: After implementation, we review progress at regular intervals. This helps us to understand what changes need to be made to further enhance the optimisation approach.
- Continuous improvement: As we understand new developments, we will implement this immediately through the continuous improvement scope of work. An SEO strategy implementation is not a static piece of work, and requires regular review and adjustment for it to work successfully all the time.
