|The effectiveness of SEO tactics (Source: MarketingSherpa)|
The order of some of the tactics is a bit surprising, but the tactics themselves are not. The list also validates something we've observed on many sites - on site SEO strategies pay off. Of the top listed strategies, our sites either automate or are easily configurable on 5 of the 10 and facilitate 3 others. 8 out of 10 ain't so bad! When it comes down to it, the only thing our sites aren't capable of is Keyword Research and Competitive Research.
SEO tends to be relative. For some industries or locations it's highly competitive and takes significant amounts of work and capital to beat the competition, in others just doing the basics will get you in the game and some times in the top positions. Our sites are created with good practices in mind so that you have a head start once you decide to make the commitment of optimizing your site for the best results.
