Our Bar SEO Services

Prior to accepting bar search engine optimization projects, we like to conduct a comprehensive review of your website and its backlinks.

This review enables us to obtain a deeper understanding of your website's SEO, including its technical, on-page, and off-page components. We take this approach as it is the proper way to start bar search engine optimization, instead of modifying your website without any prior planning.

To provide you a more comprehensive understanding of our professional bar SEO services, let's discuss each of these areas of SEO in detail:

Technical Search Engine Optimization Services for Bars

Technical SEO is familiar to most bars.

This often involves increasing website speed, passing Google Core Web Vitals, implementing SSL security, fixing mobile glitches, removing duplicate content, creating XML sitemaps, adding structured data, setting up Google Search Console, and fixing issues discovered in your search engine optimization scan.

We have a talented group of in-house website developers for bars that can help fix all your technical SEO issues in WordPress or Shopify.

On-Page SEO Services for Bars

It's often the case that bars hate doing on-page SEO themselves since they're not comfortable with content writing. No problem, we love content creation!

We have a talented in-house team of search engine optimization content writers who can put together thoughtful 750-4,000 word articles to use as blog posts, service descriptions, guest posts, and more! Before writing content, we put together a content strategy through keyword research and competitor review to ensure the content helps you rank in searches.

In addition to that, we also offer bars on-page search engine optimization improvements like writing meta descriptions, optimizing page titles, fixing heading tags, building content silos, designing infographics and videos, and reducing keyword cannibalization.

Off-Page SEO Services for Bars

We often find bars have overlooked the importance of off-page SEO after looking at various backlink profiles in the industry. If you've struggled for years to get off the second or third page of search results for your targeted keywords, it might be time to look at your backlink profile.

Backlink analysis helps bars find malicious or spammy backlinks, such as low-quality PBN backlinks. From there, we put together SEO recommendations for bars for white-hat link building including guest post outreach, niche / curated edits, HARO outreach, social citations, NAP citations, and more!

Pricing for Bar SEO Plans

Our managed SEO campaigns are priced according to the amount of time you can dedicate to search engine optimization within your marketing budget. Our services are available for budgets as low as $800 per month, though we frequently work with companies who have much higher budgets.

To obtain an estimate for the cost of your SEO service, please utilize the pricing calculator provided below.

Types of SEO Campaigns for Bars

We have experience offering enterprise, ecommerce, local and local search engine optimization services for bars, one of which should be helpful to your bars. If you choose us for your internet advertising, we'll build out a professional SEO package for your bars.

Local SEO Campaigns for Bars

Local SEO is the most common type of SEO plan for bars. Through this type of SEO, we can help your local area bars show up higher in search engine results.

For example, bars in Chicago would want to show up higher in organic search results for "Chicago bars." This would involve performing a local SEO audit of your website, optimizing your Google My Business account, performing on-page optimizations, performing keyword research for LSI phrasing, improving your backlink strength, reviewing your business citations, helping with online reputation management, and possibly even conversion rate optimization. Your bar can show up higher in Google Maps with these types of SEO improvements.

The budgets for local search engine optimization services for bars are often $800 or more per month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.

Enterprise Search Engine Optimization Campaigns for Bars

We also offer enterprise-level SEO for large search engine optimization projects, which involves a much more robust SEO plan than placing a location-based business.

In most cases, this means targeting very competitive keywords on a national level or managing search engine optimization of a huge website. We can leverage content optimization and keyword research tools like Surfer SEO and Ahrefs to help you formulate an effective search engine optimization strategy. In an large scale SEO plan, your bar can expect to see a serious amount of effort put forth from our team to scan your entire website and past search engine optimization efforts, build out a content marketing strategy, then move into technical, on-page, and off-page SEO plans.

The budgets of complex SEO plans for bars typically start at $8,000 per month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.

Franchise SEO Campaigns for Bars

Just like local area SEO, our franchise search engine optimization campaigns are tailored to franchises. This form of search engine optimization helps improve nearby visibility for each of your bar locations.

For this type of campaign, we perform all the previously mentioned nearby SEO campaigns, but for every location your franchise operates. The key differences include optimizing multiple Google My Business profiles, performing SEO on a much more complex website, potentially handling requests from each of your franchisees, and helping you rank for franchise opportunity keywords important to building out your franchise operation.

Multi Location SEO plans for bars typically cost $2,000 or more per month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.

Ecommerce SEO Campaigns for Bars

Helping improve your placements for the products and services your storefront sells online is one of our specialties. In fact, ecommerce search engine optimization is a vital part of any online search marketing service for ecommerce businesses.

Are you searching for a premium SEO company for bars to help market your products? As a complete SEO company, we have enormous experience developing and marketing ecommerce websites built on WooCommerce and Shopify. The ideal pairing for your bar is working with our SEO agency that has onsite ecommerce website designers and search engine optimization consultants. This allows both of our departments to work in tandem to provide efficient on-page, off-page, and technical search engine optimization services. We will ensure all your structured data, content silos, URL structures, 301 redirects, and more are handled properly.

The budgets of ecommerce SEO services for bars are often $1,600 or more per month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.

Preferred Website Platforms for Bar SEO

As an award-winning Search Engine Optimization firm helping bars, we have in-house web developers and PPC professionals who work in tandem with our search engine optimization team. We can do search engine marketing for bars using some of the most used platforms on the internet, including WordPress, WooCommerce, and Shopify.

WordPress SEO for Bars

The most popular CMS platform we've seen used by bars is WordPress.

We are often hired to optimize Yoast search engine optimization settings, configure Structured Data plugins, optimize page titles and meta descriptions, fix content silo errors, and improve URL structures within the WordPress platform. Learn more about our WordPress search engine optimization campaigns.

WooCommerce Search Engine Optimization for Bars

Because it's the standard of ecommerce within WordPress, it's no surprise WooCommerce is so popular.

For our WooCommerce SEO campaigns, we often help bars build out better product descriptions, improve traffic from organic search, improve product silos, set up Product structured data, implement 301 redirects, and more!

Shopify Search Engine Optimization for Bars

This is often the most popular ecommerce platform for smaller ecommerce ventures and startups.

Bars on Shopify often need help improving page content, setting up SEO-friendly product collections, writing product descriptions, fixing theme glitches, fixing broken links, and more! Learn more about our Shopify SEO options.

When talking to search engine optimization agencies targeting bars, make sure to ask if they have in-house website developers, or if technical SEO campaigns must get outsourced to other companies.

Popular Keywords for Sports Bar SEO Campaigns

Looking for suggested keywords to target within the SEO campaign for your sports bar or tavern? We've got you covered!

Before starting an SEO service for a sports bar, we like to scan the website and see what you've got to work with for content and link authority.

From there, we'll check to see what types of sports and events you specialize in showing. Maybe you're a popular spot for football games or UFC fights, or perhaps you have a great selection of craft beer and cocktails.

Having this information helps us determine what types of keywords to focus on for content writing and link building.

Common Focus Keywords for Sports Bars and Taverns

  • Sports bar [city/area]
  • Tavern [city/area]
  • Sports bar and grill [city/area]
  • Pub [city/area]
  • Craft beer bar [city/area]
  • Cocktail bar [city/area]
  • Football bar [city/area]
  • Sports viewing [city/area]
  • UFC bar [city/area]
  • Happy hour specials [city/area]
  • Bar food [city/area]
  • Game day specials [city/area]
  • Trivia night [city/area]
  • Karaoke bar [city/area]
  • Local sports bar
  • Live music [city/area]

Pro Tip #1: Sports bars and taverns often target keywords related to their sports and events offerings and location. This helps you attract local customers who are searching for a place to watch the game or grab a drink nearby.

Pro Tip #2: You should consider targeting long-tail keywords, which are more specific and less competitive. For example, "craft beer bar with outdoor seating in Portland" may be easier to rank for than just "craft beer bar".

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!
