As Santa Monica SEO experts we focus on making your website rank better and increasing traffic on your site. To do this we go through and identified what could be harming your site’s rankability along with what you could add to your site to help you rank higher. This includes keyword research, link building, citation building, and content creation.

Keyword research

Properly researching keywords in Santa Monica is important. To find and get customers, you have to know what your potential customers are looking up and what keywords are going to convert these customers. There are a few different types of categories for keywords.

The first category of keyword research has the highest intent and has the best return. The keyword is either “industry + Santa Monica” or “Santa Monica + industry”. Either variation is going to be coming from people in Santa Monica that need a specific business. If your rank highly for this keyword, you are going to get customers. For these keywords, you can rank in both the organic search results section in Google and the map pack in Google. All SEO work for a business is mostly going to be to get these two keywords and their variation to rank.

The next category of keywords is by finding keywords for nearby areas that you might be able to entice customers from to come to your business. These keywords are not going to convert customers as well as the first category of keywords, but it is still a great way of getting new customers. Especially in Santa Monica where there are a lot of populated towns and cities nearby you have to try to target the surrounding areas. Some good surrounding areas to target near Santa Monica are Pacific Palisades, Venice, Beverly Hills, Culver City, and Inglewood. All of these places are close enough within the vicinity of Santa Monica that people can come over to a business in Santa Monica. Basically, to target these keywords, you would create a location page that ranks in Google for the queries of the specific location and your industry. If you owned an acupuncture business in Santa Monica and also wanted to target Pacific Palisades, you would create a page on your website called “Acupuncture Pacific Palisades.”

The last category of keywords is to build overall credibility for your website by finding and creating content around keywords that will show Google your website is knowledgeable about your industry. Creating content around these keywords will help all other SEO efforts as it adds to the credibility of your website. This kind of SEO is called Topical Relevance. It is another major opportunity in Local Search Engine Optimization as most local businesses neglect this. It can be a bit harder to find these keywords. For these keywords, you will want to create content about common queries for your industry on the web. For example, if you were an acupuncture company, you might create a page entirely about the specific technique of acupuncture that you do. This will show Google that your website knows what it is talking about.

Link building

Building links is a way to show that your website is credible. Link building is the process of getting other websites on the internet to link to your site.

This tells Google that your website is trustworthy if other websites link to it. To build links for Santa Monica businesses, we would find relevant local websites that are related to your business and then also authoritative websites that aren’t necessarily local but are powerhouses in your specific industry.

This aspect of SEO is usually where you can get a big advantage over your competitors as they do not pay attention to link building.


Writing content is often overlooked by many but can create tremendous value to any website. Content is a way to pull people into and makes every site look more professional if done right.

Creating content can increase traffic as people will be coming to your website to read articles which intern will grows your online presence. It provides new ways of people finding and interacting with your website.

It is simple, the more blogs a website has the more keywords a site will rank for and the more traffic it will have. The best and only way to significantly increase the number of keywords you rank for is to continually put out new content that targets specific keywords.

Along with that, creating content is a major part of on-page SEO. Blogs and other forms of content that are focused on a specific topic show search engines that you have topical relevancy about that niche. The more blogs you write, on a topic, the more relevant Google will see you in their ranking algorithm.

Google and other search engines want to please their customers and one of the best ways to do that is to provide them with the most relevant content to their search. If search engines see you as relevant in your specific niche it can greatly boost your search results.

Citation Building

Citation building is another way that coincides with link building of making your website more credible and trustworthy in the eyes of Google. Google is going to rank websites that they view as the most trustworthy. Anything that you can do to show Google you are credible is something you should do.

Citations are when another website/directory has on their website your name, phone number, address, and usually a link to your website. The difference between link building and citation building is that citation building is put on local websites and they build up the credibility of your business. Sometimes citations do include links to your website which will help with link building efforts, but citations are meant more as a way to verify your business.

Common websites that you can build citations on are Yelp, Local Yahoo, Yellow Pages, etc. These are some of the bigger websites that you can get citations from, but you can also get citations from local directories specifically for Santa Monica. The more citations you can get, the better.
