SEO for Contractors

Getting your contracting website to rank well on the search engines

Contractor SEO (short for search engine optimization) is a little different than SEO for a shopping site or other website that does not need to focus on generating sales leads. SEO for a contractor’s website needs to be very local, down to each zip code that the contractor works in.

The trick is getting your website top rank for all the keyword variations of the services you offer (roofing, roofer, roof repair, roof installed, roof installation, re-roofing, new roof, et.al.) and each and every town that you work in.

This is how people search now. They search for: “roofing contractor in Atlanta,” or “roof installers in Miami, FL,” or “Roof repair company in [insert tiny town].”

Does your website have the chops to rank for all this? Or does your site rank for your hometown and that’s about it. Or has your online marketing company convinced you that SEO for contractors is difficult and takes a long time, and that all you need is SEM / PPC?

Having to rank for all these towns and cities and services is great news! This is where you can compete with the national franchises, giant lead aggregation sites (like Home Advisor), and massive localized directories like the BBB.
