    online marketing  (be active) - Big Red SEODespite all the recent changes in search engine optimization (SEO) lately, there are some surefire ways to make sure you stay ahead of your competition. Many clients of ours at Big Red SEO take a more active role in understanding what SEO is and how it works, and these clients generally tend to rank higher in the search engines because of it.

    Staying abreast of local search engine optimization news, analyzing your competition for weak spots, and relying on Big Red SEO for knowledgeable support can help your business’ online presence, leading to more quality traffic, leads, and sales!

    Keep Up with Local Search Engine Optimization News

    SEO is a constantly changing landscape, and what worked in the past, even as recently as yesterday, won’t necessarily work tomorrow. That’s why it’s important for you, as a business owner, to take an active role in understanding local search engine optimization. The easiest way to get initiated into the world of SEO is to read our blog, which explains every aspect of the SEO industry in layman’s terms.

    You can also visit SEO news websites to get an idea of new changes coming down the pipe—sites like Search Engine Land or Moz are great sources for SEO news as it happens.

    Note: Being aware of changes in the SEO industry is a great thing—it can prepare you for changes you’ll need to make to your internet marketing strategies in order to keep your search engine rankings high. However, you need to take “breaking news” about SEO with a grain of salt. There are a lot of strong voices and different opinions out there about what’s good or bad for SEO, so you shouldn’t make snap decisions about strategy without talking to our team at Big Red SEO.

    Monitor Your Competition

    You may be in the habit of monitoring your competition’s search engine rankings, but you may not know exactly what causes them to rise or fall. That’s because looking at the rankings only gives you an outside look, when what you need is in-depth analysis of things like your competitors’ backlink profiles and keyword targeting. It’s easy enough to keep tabs on your own backlinks (in fact, it’s a practice our local search engine optimization experts highly recommend to protect against negative SEO attacks), but it can be difficult to get an inside look at your competition.

    Luckily, we here at Big Red SEO can analyze your competitions’ backlink profiles for you. This monitoring service provides you with valuable insight into the inner workings of your competition, so you can position yourself for success!
