The Potential of SEO Services Calgary
“The #1 result in Google’s organic search results has an average CTR of 27.6%.” - Backlinko.com, which has conducted millions of tests, was cited.
Let’s say, for example, that your average lifetime customer value is $1,000 and your website will convert 2% of the visitors that click on your website. And your main keyword gets 5,000 monthly searches for your local area specifically. (For example, city + service).
If you ranked #1 on Google for this search term and only converted 2% of those visits, then you would increase your monthly earnings by $5,520 and your yearly earnings by $66,240.
This only accounts for ONE search term, and depending on the type of services and business you run, there could be HUNDREDS of search terms for which you will be ranked. The potential of Search Engine Optimization Calgary is compounding.

Hi, I'm Matt Edward
Hey Calgary. My name is Matt Edward. I help you get your business website to the top of Google for important searches your customers are making every day.

Calgary SEO Services
There are a number of great search engine optimization services in Calgary, but you should be wary of someone who guarantees results in a short time frame. While there are times when quick results can be achieved, this is not always the case. Search engine optimization is a term that covers a wide range of methods that all aim to get the same results.
The result is having your web page show up first on search engines like Google when customers are trying to find a business like yours. Different types of Calgary businesses need different approaches to their SEO in Calgary, and often these types of search engine optimization crossover.
That being said, when you search for Calgary SEO companies, you are generally looking for local SEO services and you are a local business hoping to get your site in front of customers in your local area searching for services or products.

How Do You Win at Search Engine Optimization?
The first thing to understand is that Google doesn’t rank websites, they rank web pages. Don’t get me wrong, the search results pages have expanded to include videos, images, recipes, map locations, products/services, snippets of web pages, and more.
Your homepage is just a page. And when someone searches for your brand specifically your home page will likely come up at the top. That SHOULD happen.
But you want pages on your site to show up for more than when someone just searches for your brand name. That is what we Calgary SEO consulting can help you strategize for.
You want to be the first result when a potential customer searches for a service or product you offer. Sometimes it makes sense to target that keyword with your homepage, and sometimes it makes more sense to target a keyword with a location page or service page or blog post.
But how? How do you make it so you show up first?
You can’t just make a website and expect to show up when someone searches for a service you offer. Not anymore. You need to hit a variety of different signals that prove to Google that your business is the best result to show the potential customer. Or else they won’t show you in the search engine rankings at all.
This is the disconnect. Many companies still don’t have an SEO strategy and expect their work will prove itself. As an SEO services company, Matt Edward SEO is here to fill that gap.
So what are the different ways that you can prove to Google you deserve to be at the very top of the results? And how do you start?
Although Google has never disclosed which signals they use to rank web pages and businesses, we can get a pretty good idea by studying years of data. I also like to follow the Pareto principle, in which 80% of your results come from 20% of the signals. Sometimes your Calgary SEO expert will focus on the wrong end of this spectrum, which is a waste of time and money.
Understanding Keyword Research For Calgary SEO
The process of figuring out what people are searching for related to your business, how often it happens, and the actual intent behind those search queries. People are typing stuff into search engines like Google to find answers to questions, to look for products, to do research, to get ideas, to fill a need, or just boredom.
Tools have allowed us to get a ballpark on how often this happens on a monthly basis. This is huge. Also, we can cross-reference with Google Search Console and Google Analytics data. Not only that but tools also allow us to examine competitor results and do a full deep-dive analysis into what your competitors are doing currently to achieve better results.
This means you can start putting some numbers and math behind your search engine marketing and focus on the areas that matter most to your customers. For example, someone might search for “SEO Calgary”. There could be a few different reasons why this might be the case. Maybe they are looking for SEO services, maybe they are looking for SEO companies in Calgary to partner with for the services they have, maybe they are looking to sell to SEO companies, etc.
Do a quick Google search. Look at the top results. Google has already categorized what they feel is the best results for this type of search. (For now anyways) This will provide you with the intent.
Google has decided that marketing companies that have an SEO services page are the correct type of page to show for this result. They also show something called the map pack which are Google Business Profile listings with a map style layout.
There really is an art to keyword research. This is where I feel like my skills as an SEO expert are unique compared to some of the agencies in Calgary.
I won’t name names, but I have seen several packages delivered by a Calgary SEO agency, and the time and effort put into the keyword research are minimal. SEO clients deserve more.
SEO services require thought, and some abstract thinking to find low competition high-value keywords and searches that can bring you revenue immediately.
Okay so great. We found a keyword. Now what?
Once you’ve determined the intent, you want to create content that will satisfy the intent of the search. This could mean text, images, video, or any type of media you can put on a web page that will help the consumer get the desired result.
The best way to do this is to research the top results of Google that are currently ranking for that keyword in order to determine what types of content that Google is rewarding.
“…Help the consumer get the desired result.”
It’s not about checking boxes as much as it is helping the user reach their goal. But using this data to support your decisions is paramount.
What you'll get
It's important to have a process down. A proven, repeatable process.
The process of on-page optimization is matching the intent of the search with the best possible text, videos, and/or images on the web.
You may be competing with thousands of web pages and businesses that are also trying to rank their website at the top of Google for that term specifically. You want to make sure you have original, helpful content that will satisfy the customer for whatever they’re searching for.
I’m trying to rank this page for “SEO Calgary”—So, I’ve put all my time and effort into figuring out what I could put on this page to make the searcher happy.
One of the many favourite ways to start your on-page is to look at the intent of what's currently ranking on page one of Google right now. Make sure to include that type of information and content, while also maintaining a unique angle and delivering original content.
What did I find? I found 21 different pieces I need to fulfill in order to maximize my chances of ranking for this query.
This page has commercial intent behind it. Someone searching for local Calgary SEO is generally looking to do research or purchase from an SEO company in Calgary, Canada. Match the intent.
Looking at the competition is hugely important.
Copying and plagiarizing is never the answer, but making sure you include your own unique version of these pieces will be the difference maker. Google has already given its vote for what they think are the best results.
There are many other aspects and signals Google takes into account. You could have all of this content on the page and it could be awesome, but if you have 100 1-star reviews, you might not get shown.
Based on what we find (which is over 140 different data points), we implement the on-page optimization. However, you can affect current rankings if you change too much on a page, or alter the intent of that page. We are extremely mindful of current rankings, and will not change anything if it doesn't make sense from an return on investment standpoint. I can't say the same for other digital marketing companies.

E-A-T | Expertise, Authority, and Trust
Do you have the credentials, certifications, social proof, portfolio, and testimonials to make you an authority on a given topic? That's what you need you Calgary SEO agency to help you with display.
Expertise definition – Expert skill or knowledge in a particular field
Authority definition – Power to influence or command thought, opinion, or behaviour.
Trust definition – Firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
For example, you probably won’t want a dentist who went to college for sales and marketing and never practiced dentistry. You want to know that this person is a recognized and established member of the community and has the proper certifications to provide this type of product or service. That goes for everything. Even SEO.
Your social profiles like LinkedIn or links to your team’s social profiles can also help establish EAT. There are a number of things you can do to improve your EAT with search engines, these are just a few. But this is built into our SEO strategy to ensure you get the best results as soon as possible.
Ready To Crush the Interwebs?
Off-Page seo Optimization
Part of off-page optimization is acquiring links back to your website from other relevant websites. You can look at them like an upvote for your website. When a site of high authority carries relevance to your industry or business and links to your website, Google counts that as a vote for your site. These are called backlinks.
Links are not created equal. Generally the easier they are to acquire, the less value they carry. So how do we help you get links back to your website that increase your authority with Google?
Many different ways and this is one of those areas where I’m more tight-lipped because I have developed a variety of strategies I don’t necessarily want to share with my competitors. It takes creativity to build high-value links and it takes time, but it’s important not to buy into the more links = better-ranking narrative. More relevant high authority links = better rankings. Check out our Calgary SEO services today.
SEO Support Calgary | Why You Need it
You could be paying too much for too little effort if you're using a company like the Yellow Pages for SEO and digital marketing services.
You might be paying a large Calgary SEO agency—they are outsourcing the SEO work for less. Almost always. Also, the most important aspects of SEO are overlooked in almost every agency I’ve worked for. You might be paying an SEO expert – Perfect! Although, I have seen many cases where the most basic things are being missed.
Something is missing from SEO companies Calgary.
You need a Calgary SEO specialist who will not affect your rankings negatively when they take over. You may have already built some authority with Google or other search engines. It’s very very important to maintain that authority while building upon it without making changes that will decrease your ranking.
This can only come with experience in my opinion. I’ve seen some crazy stuff. You do not want a company that is not being honest with you to take control of your business’s presence on the web and damage your reputation with Google.
I’ve seen many Calgary SEO companies and web design companies who promise that a re-design will not affect SEO, then I look at their results after the build and I see the organic traffic tank. I’ve seen up to 25k organic traffic drop which can absolutely hurt your business in the long term.
Technical SEO can encompass a lot of things, from website speed, website security, sitemaps, databases, server issues, robots.txt, crawling, css, js, html, and way more on top of that.
Calgary SEO Tools We Like To Use
Not getting enough relevant traffic to your website.
Your website is not ranking for revenue-driving search terms.
You are missing out on customers that will generate referrals and eventually increase your revenue and bottom line.
You are not showing up near the top of Google for your most important keywords. For example, you are on the 5th page of Google for the search “recruiters Calgary”. That’s a problem. How much business are you missing out on?
I am proactive. I see current SEO’s banking on past work results and then coasting month to month forever. This is not the way. And you as a business owner very often have no ideas this is happening. Well, first I can tell you how to check. But I also would just like to take over and be the proactive SEO you need.
Your website is not showing up on Google maps.
Your current SEO is not showing you any growth over a 6-12 month period
Many times what I see is that businesses are doing well on Google Search for their own brand name, and they are paying an SEO 1k/month but only generating a few clicks from searches that are NOT the brand name. I see this ALL. THE. TIME. You SHOULD be at the top for your brand name when someone searches, you don’t need to pay anyone to do anything there. If you’re not showing up then an SEO can help but that will not take 6 months.
You might be paying an SEO to sit around and look at your analytics and then send them to you once per month.
Your site will remain stagnant for traffic. You will not get any more leads through Google or other search engines.
Local SEO is important because it helps businesses attract customers who are searching for their products or services in a specific geographic location. Local SEO helps businesses stand out in search results and makes it easier for potential customers to find them online.
Yes, local SEO can benefit businesses that don't have a physical storefront. For example, if you are a freelancer or consultant who serves clients in a specific geographic area, local SEO can help you attract more clients from that area. You can optimize your website and online profiles for local search terms and phrases.
You need Calgary SEO because you want to rank ahead of your competitors in the Google Search Engine Results for keywords that can drive revenue to your business on autopilot.
Backlinks are easy for calgary seo companies to get wrong. This can be devastating to your organic ranking on search engines like Google.
We make sure to provide relevant and diverse backlinks in a natural way that will never hurt your overall rankings in the algorithm.
There is data to support the fact that people are searching for products and services you offer everyday. You are missing out on a large percentage of those potential customers if you are not doing search engine optimization right now.
SEO is a natural way to drive traffic and leads to your business website. You don’t have to pay for each person that comes to your website, and since they already made a search, they are technically a warm lead right to your site. This has huge benefits and allows you to bring in more revenue to your business for years to come.
- Diversity in revenue
- Increased brand awareness
- Competitive advantage
- More money from customers you never would have had otherwise
- And more
