Here is what a few of our clients have to say

As a result of First Rank's efforts, call volume tripled for service work. Our website has become significantly more searchable, which has increased site traffic. Looking at our keywords, we appear in two postings on the first page and high in local results. We’re ranking quite high for all of the search items we wanted to rank for. The positive results were instantaneous.
- Daniel Hartley - Powertec
We had incredible results for the SEO project including several hundred thousand views. We also sold $150,000–$200,000 worth of product as a result of First Rank’s SEO efforts. Additionally, three of the articles that we wrote are now on the first page of Google. As a result, we’ve had a number of inquiries, particularly in the last couple of months, and several of them will result in significant sales. They’re a great team to work with... The analytics report that they provide every month is great. Whenever I ask them to do something, it’s typically done in 24 hours. We communicate via email, text, and phone, and we also meet face-to-face periodically.
Ted Cullen - QuikTherm
We continue to be satisfied with their services and the results. The work that Jacob and his team is doing has provided us with phenomenal traction. Before working with them, we were hovering around page two or three on a dozen keywords that were important to us. Now, we’re consistently ranking either one, two, or three on all the keywords and key searches that we wanted to be ranked on, which has been huge. We’ve also seen our numbers go from an average of 10 requests per month to about 30. It’s been a great partnership.
- Gaurav Bhatt - PrintPro
For most of the keywords, we ranked in the top three search results if not the first result. Their team maintained those rankings too. We eventually reached close to the top three search results for the other keywords. First Rank had a big impact on our business. They were directly responsible for a 2-times increase in our business...The qualities that make them stand out are integrity and communication. Jacob’s one of the nicest entrepreneurs that I know. As a result of his quality coaching, we maintained a relationship throughout the project.
- Donald Spann - Companion Maids

Kelowna SEO

Kelowna is an incredible city. As the hub of commerce in the Okanagan Valley and the third largest city in British Columbia, it’s experienced consistent growth over the years. Many businesses want a piece of the pie in the ever-expanding metro area; to compete in Kelowna, West Kelowna, and the surrounding area, you need a unique strategy to cut through the noise.

Our SEO services can help. We’ve been in the business for well over a decade and helped businesses like yours thrive in Kelowna. As an SEO company, we pride ourselves on doing what other SEO agencies can’t—giving you incredible results by leveraging the latest SEO trends and our team of technical experts, content wizards, and project managers.

Work with an SEO team that knows the Kelowna market. Whether you have an online business, a brick-and-mortar shop, or a unique hybrid, we’re here to help you get to the top of the Google search results—and make more money. 

The Importance of Kelowna SEO for Local Businesses

The goal of search engine optimization is to grow your business by helping you reach your target audience, increasing brand awareness, and stonewalling your competitors. Our SEO packages can help your business grow, all while keeping your competitors at bay.

Reaching Your Target Audience

One of the main goals of SEO is to constantly generate high-converting leads for your business, 24/7. 76% of users making a local search visit a local business within 24 hours. The people searching for information about local businesses are usually looking to actively buy the products or services those businesses offer.

For an old-school analogy, think about local search leads as similar to leads you’d get from people looking through the Yellow Pages; they’re making the search because they want to do business with someone. With local SEO, they’ll see your business before they see your competition; without it, potential clients may never see your business when they search.

Boosting Organic Traffic

Organic traffic is unpaid traffic to your website. When you’re getting a lot of organic traffic, you’re bringing a lot of eyeballs to your website—potential customers who may have been unaware of your brand until they made the search.

Boosting organic traffic is one of the ways a Kelowna SEO strategy can increase your customer base. Users trust organic search results more than paid results, which can help improve your brand’s reputation.

Strengthening Your Online Presence

There are several ways a Kelowna SEO agency can boost your online presence.

First, search results are a zero-sum game—when you’re ranking higher, your competitors are ranking lower. SEO is both a sword and a shield, cutting through the noise to get to the people actively searching for the products and services you sell while blocking your competitors from reaching those same potential customers.

Second, your Kelowna SEO agency’s work to get you to the top of the search engine results will improve your online reputation. Reputation management, generating reviews, and getting your site listed on well-respected directories are all common strategies your agency might employ to shore up your SEO campaign.

Choosing the Right Kelowna SEO Company

There are a lot of fly-by-night SEO companies that might know one element of the industry but fail at the rest. SEO services should include technical SEO, off-page and on-page SEO, reputation management, and more. Find a company with experience, expertise, local knowledge, flexibility, and excellent reporting to help you with your SEO efforts. 

Experience and Expertise

Search engine optimization is an analytics-driven industry; a successful SEO agency will have a vast dataset it can pull from to analyze which strategies will be most effective for your industry. SEO is an industry where poor performers drop off quickly; opting for a well-established SEO agency with a proven track record of success dramatically increases your chances of seeing a good return on your investment.

Local SEO is all about understanding the local market, so choosing an SEO agency with experience working with businesses in Kelowna and B.C. will help you improve your results.

Customized Solutions

Kelowna is a unique market with its own trends, demographics, and more. There might be dozens of businesses in a similar industry to yours in the city, but your business has unique selling points.

Your SEO campaign must be as unique as your city and business. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, and your SEO agency should show you exactly how its strategies are tailored to Kelowna and your business. With the right tactics in place, you can stand out in Kelowna, throughout the Okanagan, and beyond.

Transparent Reporting

There are many goals in SEO—to increase your rank for specific keywords, to increase organic traffic, to increase conversions, and more. Local SEO experts all know about the importance of these metrics, but only the cream of the crop offers sophisticated reporting on them.

To find the right SEO agency for your Kelowna business, ask it about what kind of reporting it offers. How frequently it sends reports, what will be contained within those reports, and how easy the reports are to read and understand are all factors you should consider when choosing between local SEO agencies in Kelowna.

Key Abbotsford SEO Services for Local Business Growth

The best SEO campaigns focus on on-page, off-page, and technical SEO, along with reputation management, dense internal and external linking, and more. Here’s how it works: 

On-Page and Off-Page Optimization

Broadly speaking, there are two types of SEO:

  • On-page SEO, which consists of any search engine optimization activities taken on your site
  • Off-page SEO, which consists of any search engine optimization activities taken off your site

On-page SEO includes:

  • Content creation
  • Content optimization
  • Technical SEO
  • Internal linking creation and optimization
  • Call-to-action optimization
  • Changes to site structure
  • And more

Off-page SEO includes:

  • Adding your business to online directories
  • Reputation management
  • Getting high-quality reviews
  • Earning links from high authority websites
  • Setting up your Google Business Profile
  • Social media management
  • And more

To succeed in making it to the top of the search engine rankings, you need both off-page and on-page optimization; without both, you’re leaving a lot of potential optimizations on the table. By coordinating the on-page elements of SEO with your off-page strategy, the two will work holistically to get your Kelowna business to the top rank of Google and other search engines for relevant keywords.

Content Optimization

Search engines greatly prioritize content—they want to send users to content that’s relevant to the search queries they’re making.

This means content is the king of search engine marketing. Here’s how content optimization works:

  • Your SEO agency conducts keyword research to see which keywords are relevant to local SEO in your industry.
  • Your existing content is analyzed to see whether or not it can be optimized for these keywords or if there are gaps in content that can be filled with new content.
  • Using sophisticated software that analyzes high-ranking pages for linguistic patterns and writers who are passionate about your industry and SEO, your existing content will be optimized for relevant keywords.
  • When there’s a gap in content for relevant keywords, new content will be built to rank for those keywords.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg; content hubs, deep internal linking, high-quality calls-to-action, and other techniques and tactics will be employed by our Kelowna SEO experts to ensure that your business makes it to the top of the results pages for major search engines.

Local Link Building

Search engine algorithms use a number of different factors to assess how well a website should rank. One of the most important factors is which websites are linking to a given website.

Building links to your website is one of the most important SEO strategies. These links should come from a high authority page— pages that Google and other search engines trust. They should also come from within your industry, from within Kelowna, or both.

Our local link-building strategy is multifaceted. We might start by getting your business listed in directories like the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce. From there, we may get your business cited on websites like Tourism Kelowna or in papers like Kelowna Capital News.

Leveraging Social Media and Digital Marketing for Kelowna SEO

Social Media Engagement

Social media can be a tremendous boon to a Kelowna SEO campaign—it’s a great way of earning natural links, driving engagement, and promoting your business to new and existing customers.

Our social media marketing strategy varies from client to client, but it always starts by analyzing which platforms you’re already on, how you’re performing on those platforms, and which platforms could help you extend your reach and connect with your target audience.

The type of social media you’ll leverage depends on the audience you’re trying to reach; each platform attracts different users, and there’s a significant generational divide between platforms. The posts you’ll make on each platform depend on the users you’re trying to reach on that platform—we take care of all of that and more. Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, TikTok—our social media strategy will be tailored to your needs. 

Localized Digital Marketing Campaigns

Local SEO is a vital part of any worthwhile local digital marketing campaign, and there’s more that we can do. 

First, your Google Business Profile (GBP) will play a vital role in your local marketing. GBP is like a directory on Google, and it will be the source of messages, phone calls, and reviews for your business, as well as an excellent way to get ahead on the search engine results pages.

Then, there are several strategies involving pay-per-click (PPC) ads. Google Ads and other platforms can help you target individuals in Kelowna, the Okanagan at large, or anywhere else in B.C.—or the world, for that matter!

Getting your business in local directories, newspapers, and other sites in Kelowna will also help get the word out about who you are and what you do. All of these strategies can have an important influence on both SEO and your more extensive marketing efforts—localized campaigns offer an incredible return on investment. 


Measuring the Success of Your Kelowna SEO Strategy

How do you know whether or not your SEO campaign is having an impact? The answer is simple: Clear, concise reporting that tells you exactly how well you’re performing on search engines for relevant keywords, how much traffic you’re generating—and whether or not that traffic is converting.

Tracking Keyword Performance

Keyword performance is one of the most essential SEO metrics—if your potential customers aren’t finding your business when they look for relevant keywords, they’re going to find your competitors instead.

Our keyword performance tracking for Kelowna businesses starts with keyword research; we’ll find the keywords that are most relevant to your business and target them with content, links, and more. Some of the elements we consider during the keyword research phase include:

  • The relevance of the keyword to your niche
  • The number of searches the keyword gets per month
  • The intent behind the keyword—are people who look up the keyword buying products?
  • How difficult it is to rank for the keyword

Working with you, we’ll establish a list of keywords that you want to rank for. From there, we’ll provide regular reports and updates on your keyword performance, showing you how well you rank for those keywords, how many views you get for each keyword, and more. 

Analyzing Website Traffic

Where is your website traffic coming from? How long are users staying on your website? Do they stay on one page and leave, or do they explore?

We analyze all of these trends and more—then give them to you in a detailed report. The types of traffic you’re receiving and how they interact with your site give us all kinds of insights into:

  • The kinds of content we should create
  • The pages that are getting the most traffic
  • The pages that are getting the most conversions
  • Where we should point our internal links
  • Where we can land external links (called backlinks)
  • And more

Ideally, most of your traffic will come from organic searches, with some traffic coming directly to your website (instead of through search engines). Organic traffic is a long-term boon; when you have more organic traffic, all of your pages tend to perform better on search engines.

Evaluating Conversions and ROI

Tracking keywords, watching traffic grow, seeing a flood of great reviews, and experiencing a boom in social media followers—all of these things feel incredible and can be easily tracked and measured.

At the end of the day, though, you’re here because you want your business to grow, and you think our Kelowna SEO services might be able to help. The search engine market is competitive, and you don’t want to compete for no reason—you want to see higher conversions, more sales, and a great return on your investment.

We include detailed reporting on conversions and sales in all of our SEO campaigns. We’re not just throwing marketing strategies at the wall to see what sticks—all of our strategies are oriented toward getting more customers in your sales funnel and channelling them to buy from your visit, online or in-store.

We’re First Rank—and our Kelowna SEO services will help you grow your business and your bottom line. We only work with companies when we truly believe we can deliver an exceptional return on their investment. Contact us today for a free SEO audit and consultation.
