SEO Action Plan


See where you currently stand and where you can go with a strategic plan from our SEO team. We reverse engineer the process and factors that your competitors use to get top rankings. Then, we recommend a customized strategy to outpace them. Our comprehensive SEO audit allows us to perform in-depth research on your existing site and provide specific recommendations to improve your rankings. After the audit, we'll propose a plan tailored to your needs that will show how we'll get you the final results.

The process of moving into the 3-Stack is contingent on local competitive environment and results are not guaranteed. The 3-Stack is an "unpaid" organic position that is dependent upon Google algorithms. This program is a long-term strategy. IF you are looking for a short-term solution, check out our Google Local Service ads.

Keyword research

Find8 SEO specialists start the action plan by uncovering actual search terms that people enter into search engines. Our research typically brings back hundreds, if not thousands, of words and phrases. We will cut the list down to the top 10 core keywords that we recommend for the project.

Keyword Cannibalism
Keyword cannibalism describes the situation where your site has multiple pages that target the same keyword. When multiple pages target a keyword, it creates confusion for the search engines, and more importantly, it creates confusion for visitors.


Technical and On-Page

Our technical team will audit your website with our crawling tools to gauge how well your current website is performing. We will examine hundreds of elements ranging from metadata and schema to domain authority and backlinks. 


While what's on your website and the business directories is important for local SEO, what's off the website is equally important. Your site's quality is largely determined by the quality of the sites linking to it. As a result, it is extremely important to analyze the backlink profile of your site and identify opportunities for improvement. Reviews are also considered an off-page factor. The more reviews you have on Google and other top directories such as Yelp and Facebook, the more prominent your brand, increasing trust with Google and your users. 

Keyword Ranking

Where does your website currently rank? Our SEO team takes your approved keyword list and determines where your website is positioned in Google Search, Google Mobile, and Google Maps.

Duplicate and Thin Content

Your site has duplicate content if multiple pages contain the same (or nearly the same) content. Unfortunately, these pages can be both internal and external (i.e., hosted on a different domain). We will also check for pages with low quality or low word counts.

Competitive Comparison

After we've reviewed your site in detail, we'll also compare it against three competitors in all of the ways listed above, and compile the data down into actionable items.

Strategic Roadmap

After all of our analysis and research is complete, our SEO team creates a roadmap for SEO success. This plan is customized and laser-focused to deliver results based on your specific situation and competitive environment.

Google 3-Stack Features


Attract new customers in one of the top three premiere positions inside Google's Local 3-Stack. When prospects search for a solution, make sure your brand is just a "click to call" away. For your primary physical address only. SEO subscriptions may include some or all of the following each month. Each month a Find8 SEO expert will review your results and make decisions based on the SEO Action plan, performance results, and ongoing algorithm search engine updates. Your plan includes:

  • Local data management and distribution
  • Google My Business
  • On-page optimization
  • Fresh content and backlinks, if necessary
  • Customer review software 
  • Monthly reporting

Base subscription covers population: < 150K and keyword difficulty: < 16.

Local data management

Name, Address, Phone (NAP) Standardization 

Your company information, including name, address, and phone (NAP) needs to be consistent and accurate in order to build trust with Google. Even the slightest difference like spelling out "Suite" versus using "Ste" can be seen as a duplicate in Google's eyes.

Duplicate Cleanup

Cleaning up duplicate listings and incorrect information on Facebook or Yelp is mission-critical in boosting rankings. Google scans your business information on business directories like Superpages, Yelp, Angie's List and more.

Data Distribution

If your business is not listed accurately on dozens of these directories, your business will likely suffer from weak local search visibility. Find8 SEO experts enter your NAP with the top directories, including the most important one of all, Google My Business.

Google My Business

If your business is not listed accurately on dozens of these directories, your business will likely suffer from weak local search visibility. Find8 SEO experts enter your NAP with the top directories, including the most important one of all, Google My Business.

Where Does Google My Business Appear?

When searching for a business on Google you may have noticed the small profile on the right that appears; that is Google My Business. Below the profile image and map pin, the profile displays buttons for taking users directly to the website alongside directions to the business address. As well as this, further details can be included such as opening and closing hours, phone number and email address along with a reviews section.

On-page optimization

In the "old" days of performing SEO, most techniques focused on technical issues associated with your website. This is still true, to some extent, today. We follow "white hat" best practices inline with SEO leaders such as Moz SEO. Depending on your unique situation, we may do some or all of the following at some point in your SEO subscription:

  • Title and Meta descriptions
  • Schema tags
  • Rich snippet optimization
  • Headline optimization
  • Image optimization
Fresh content

Your website is a living, breathing entity on the internet. Every update you make to your website once it is "live" on the internet plays a part in its interaction with visitors, customers, and the powerful search engines. A static website without updates of any kind may be viewed by search engines as a "dead" entity - with no life and nothing new to offer. Depending on your results, we may develop localized content, typically with blogs or FAQs, to keep your content fresh and interesting. And, if you still need an extra boost, we will find opportunities for backlinks from other websites.

Customer reviews

Essentially, SEO is about trust. With the previous tactics, we build trust by managing your business data across the internet, in addition to building an awesome website with equally awesome content. The next step is online reputation management. This pillar builds, improves and protects your most valuable online asset: your brand reputation. All major search engines place a high degree of importance on positive reviews. 

To gain more reviews, this package offers an automated customer review software platform to invite your customers to leave you a review on your website and on Google.

If you have negative customer reviews, you should speak to your SEO consultant about adding our Reputation Management package.

Monthly reporting
