Search Engine Optimization, or SEO as it is formerly called, is the art and science of making changes and alterations in one’s website structure or in the website’s content to make it more friendly to search engines.
Search Engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo use systems called web crawlers or search engine bots to help find only the most relevant websites, blog posts, or contents that match the keywords once a search query is made.
Basically, if your website content contains relevant keywords, has quality content, and technically structured properly, then you have a higher chance of appearing on the top pages of the search results page. The higher up your website is on the search result pages, the better the chance of people coming by your website instead of your competitors’.

Our search engine ranking process
At Website SEO Toronto, Search engine optimization is done through several layers of editing, restructuring, and content creation as part of our extensive search engine ranking process. Each layer heightens your website’s visibility. And as each layer of our search engine ranking process interacts with each other, we can guarantee your website will rank higher and ultimately increase your website’s organic traffic that will eventually translate to actual sales for you.
A website audit is basically how Website SEO Toronto (WST) runs its full analysis of your website’s current level of SERP visibility and ranking. Like any medical check-up or even car tuning, you need to first understand “the root cause of the problem” before you try to solve it.
Through a website audit, we can look into the actual reasons behind why your site is unable to rank on SERP or why your current organic traffic is not translating into actual sales figures.
WST uses quality website audit tools to locate technical errors, analyze website design and user experience, and run assessments on the site’s content. Using this, we can generate a full checklist report on all of your site’s issues before customizing a search engine ranking process curated specifically for your website and the industry you have your business in. After all the initial website auditing is done, we can move on to the next portion of the assessment.
Competitor research is where our SEO Toronto company tries to identify a list of some of your business’ main competitor — we perform research on some of the common search queries or keywords potential customers use to navigate your niche. After this is done, we look into their specific SEO metrics to identify the gap between their efforts to gain visibility compared to yours. Some of the most common metrics are:
- Domain Ratings
- Quality of Referring domains
- Organic Traffic
- Semantic Keywords
- Social Signals
The Domain rating of a website basically indicates how solid your website’s backlink profile is. This comes hand in hand with identifying the referring domains themselves to see whether the number of websites linking back to your main site are of quality. Another important metric we look into here is how fast your competitors acquire new referring domains that keep redirecting traffic their way.
The more you know about what your competitors are doing that you currently aren’t, the faster you can get to work to close the gap. Website SEO Toronto runs competitor research specifically to identify this gap and how to close them through our custom search engine ranking process. Basically, it’s finding out what works for your competitors’, taking the concepts and principles, and using them better.
Keyword research is more industry or niche-specific. We know how to find the most relevant keywords or your site and its content. These include names related to the actual products and services provided within the industry, or even words and phrases related to three types of content — Awareness, Consideration, and Conversion.
The goal of keyword research is to make sure your website design and site content are all built to contain only the most relevant ones that will heighten the chance of search engine crawlers pulling up your site into higher rankings on the Search Engine Results Page.
As we briefly mentioned earlier, Technical SEO is all about working on the technical aspects of your website to help it rank higher on SERPs. The basic process here is making your website faster, making it easier to crawl for search engine bots, and making your website more understandable or readable for search engines. Although crawlers do try to provide users with faster, more structured websites, technical SEO is something you want to be doing for your user experience too.
A website that has been technically tend to be fast, easy to crawl, doesn’t have dead-end or broken links, and is easily readable for search engines to understand what your website is about so that they can show your website to queries relevant to it. At Website SEO Toronto, these are all things that are part of our search engine ranking process.
On-Page SEO is every activity you do on each page on your website to improve its performance on SERPs. At Website SEO Toronto, we strive to optimize individual web pages on your site to boost to rank higher on relevant search results and boost organic traffic. Technical SEO discussed earlier is also part and parcel of On-Page SEO — Although they are different, yet they go hand in hand.
Search engines make it a point to provide users with the best search results, in other words website or web pages with high-quality content. They locate these through an algorithm system that seeks to look for relevant keywords on all sorts of websites and web content. The easier you make it for these bots to read through your content, the better the chances of your website showing up among the top ten search results.

Off Page SEO
Just like on page SEO focuses on onsite activities, Off Site SEO focus on all the activities you do outside of your website that will help to push your website to the top of search results. We mentioned backlinking and referral domains a while ago when we talked about competitor research.
This is where it becomes useful for your website, because when it comes to Off Page SEO, your goal is to have as many relevant, quality external pages, sites, and content to link or make reference to your website. In other words, other websites should vote for your website as a credible resource for your niche.
Off Page SEO, is essentially about creating exposure and brand awareness. You want to have other sites referencing or linking back to you. You want your site to develop a sense of trust and authority based on how reliable all these backlinks make you look. If you think it sounds familiar, it’s because Off Page SEO is very much like traditional marketing.
