How Illuminate Digital SEO Works For You

Every day, more than 5.6 billion searches are made on Google. Because 99% of searchers never scroll to page 2, it’s crucial to be on the first page of Google’s results page. There are two things Google looks at when deciding who is going to be on page 1.

This has everything to do with your website and  Google seeing exactly what you do and who you are. If your website says you are a shoe company,  Google wants to see that you sell shoes. Not furniture, books, or plumbing services shoes. Google wants to make sure you are whom you say you are so they can give their users the best search experience possible. 

Relevance = onsite work 

We optimize the content, keywords, and code on your website. This gives the visitors information they need about your services/products and supports what is being said offsite.

SEO for Website Authority


A website’s trust is determined by the number of other websites that link back to your website. These links, called backlinks, are like a vote of confidence from one website to another. It’s a signal to Google that other people can vouch for and recommend your services and products. The more of these links you have, and the more relevant and trusted they are, the more trusted you will be, too!  

Trust = offsite work  

We create custom content about your industry and place it where other people can like, share, and click to route back to website. We do this with:

  • Article Engagement 

  • Website Bookmarking

  • Business Directory Submissions

  • Custom Blog Publications
