How SEO Savvy is Your Web Development Team?by Anvil on March 3, 2016Local Search
Looking to develop a whole new website or bring a new look and structure an existing site? Maybe you’ve reviewed portfolios and selected a web developer. Or maybe you’ve decided to do it yourself using Squarespace or another tool? Great! So who’s keeping an eye on your Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
SEO is a Specialization
While most web developers and DIY tools will tell you that they can produce SEO-optimized sites, the fact is that SEO is a highly specialized and continually evolving science. Google and other search providers have grown wise to many of the tactics used in the early days of the web and changed their tools accordingly. Make sure that you’re working with a web developer who knows the lay of the land.
