From there, we scan the website of your religious organization for onsite issues, content quality, and rank positions which we then compare against other church groups, faith centers, religious groups and religious organizations in your area. We take the time to talk with you about your religious organization, analyze data from multiple reporting systems and pull from our own marketing experience to help improve the search rankings of your religious organization.

Most SEO consultants working with religious organizations try to hide their methods and tactics when explaining what they will do for the website of your religious organization, but search engine optimization strategies that work for religious leaders aren't a complete mystery. The best search engine optimization consultants for religious leaders involves hundreds of factors, but the most common areas to work on are improving website content, increasing website speed, building inbound links and fixing onsite issues. The major search engines are huge corporations that aren't going to be fooled by keyword stuffing, hidden paragraphs and other SEO gimmicks that worked for religious leaders decades ago. If you want to be found in search results for religious leaders then you need to give search engines a reason to want to include your religious organization in their search results. Our consultants will help you discover how to get your religious organization ranked higher in search engines for the keywords and phrases important to your religious organization.
A lot of the religious leaders we talk to don't understand the importance of website content, which is best explained by looking at what goals a search engine attempts to achieve. A search engine's purpose might be to help a person find relevant websites of religious leaders. To clarify, the key takeaway is a search engine helps the person performing a search, it doesn't necessarily try to help a specific religious organization be found. When a search engine crawls the website of your religious organization it will scan through your content to determine if you are relevant to potential community members looking for you. If your website has minimal content because it links to external websites to explain what you offer community members or has low word count, duplicate content, hidden content or poor grammar then search engines will likely determine your website as not relevant to people looking for religious leaders. Our consultants can help you improve the website content of your religious organization by discovering the keywords your website is missing, writing unique content, building better landing pages and much more!
As mentioned earlier, the purpose of a search engine might be to help a person find websites relevant to their search queries for religious leaders. That extends to ensuring the recommended religious organization websites will load relatively quickly compared to other religious organization websites. If the website of your religious organization is being slowed by unnecessarily complex database queries, a bloated template, unoptimized images, conflicting plugins or any number of other factors then you may see a drop in religious-related search phrases. We have consultants that can assess your website's speed issues and work with you to increase the speed of your website so your religious organization can reach more community members.
Another important factor in search placement is the number of quality inbound links pointing to the website of your religious organization. Search engines look at the number of quality inbound links your religious organization has to determine its popularity, trust and authority. The process of building quality inbound links is likely the most challenging and time consuming part of SEO services for religious leaders. That being said, our team of consultants have experience helping religious leaders build quality inbound links through ecommerce affiliate programs, references in news articles, directory inclusions, professional review websites and many other religious inbound linking opportunities.
There are numerous types of onsite website issues that can negatively impact the search placement of your religious organization. For example, launching a new website for your religious organization without creating 301 redirects can lead to your current and prospective community members seeing 404 pages, which will likely lead to large declines in search rank and organic traffic. Even unoptimized page titles or meta descriptions, duplicate content issues and mobile experience issues can negatively impact the search placement of your religious organization. Our team can add your website to our automated scanning system to monitor for onsite issues and have them corrected to help prospective community members searching for you.
