If your church could benefit from an increased position in search engines, read on!
We work with a wide variety of churches. The search engine optimization services discussed below will help provide SEO for churches and even:
We would like to carefully assess your church website and its backlink profile before committing to an SEO project.
Through this review process, we can better understand all aspects of your website's search engine optimization, including its technical, on-page, and off-page factors. We take this approach as it is the proper way to start church SEO, instead of modifying your website without any prior planning.
To provide you a more comprehensive understanding of our professional church SEO services, let's discuss each of these areas of search engine optimization in detail:
Most churches are aware of technical SEO.
This is mostly because it covers the easily seen aspects of search engine optimization, including site speed, Core Web Vitals, HTTPS security, responsive experiences, duplicate content, sitemap files, schema markup, Google Search Console, and other items highlighted in most search engine optimization scan tools.
We have a team of in-house website developers for churches who can handle all your technical SEO concerns in WordPress or WordPress.
Many churches don't like doing on-page SEO themselves because they aren't fans of writing content. 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 search results.
Beyond that, we also offer churches on-page SEO improvements to write meta descriptions, optimize page titles, fix heading tags, build content silos, develop infographics and videos, reduce keyword cannibalization, and improve user engagement.
When we look at various church backlink profiles, we often notice they've forgotten about off-page SEO. You might want to check your backlink quality if you've been struggling for years to get off the second or third page of search results.
With our backlink analysis services, we help churches detect malicious or spammy backlinks, including PBNs. From there, we put together SEO recommendations for churches for white-hat link building including guest post outreach, niche / curated edits, HARO outreach, social citations, NAP citations, and more!
The cost of our managed search engine optimization services is determined by the amount of time you're able to set aside in your marketing budget for search engine optimization. Although we're more than happy to work with budgets starting at $800 per month, many of our clients have significantly higher budgets that we work with regularly.

We offer ecommerce, local, local, and franchise SEO campaigns for churches, so one of those should be helpful for your church SEO service. If you choose WebCitz for your website marketing plan, we'll assemble a custom SEO service for your churches.
Local search engine optimization plans are what we do most often for churches. More than likely, this is because so many localized churches are searching for help improving their rankings in search engine results.
For example, churches in Chicago would want to show up higher in organic search results for "Chicago churches." This would involve performing a local SEO scan of your website, optimizing your Google My Business account, performing on-page optimizations, performing keyword research for LSI phrasing, improving your backlink quality, reviewing your business citations, helping with online reputation management, and possibly even conversion rate optimization. These types of search engine optimization improvements would help your church show up higher in Google Maps.
It's not uncommon for local search engine optimization campaigns for churches to cost $800 or more a month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.
For big SEO projects, we also offer enterprise-level SEO which involves a more comprehensive search engine optimization strategy.
Most times, this means targeting very competitive keywords on a national level, or managing the search engine optimization of a 1,000+ page website. We can help narrow your search engine optimization efforts through keyword research and content optimization using services like Surfer SEO and Ahrefs. In an enterprise SEO campaign, your church can expect to see a serious amount of effort put forth from our team to audit your entire site and past search engine optimization efforts, build out a content marketing strategy, then move into off-page, technical, and on-page SEO campaigns.
The budgets of enterprise SEO campaigns for churches typically start at $8,000 per month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.
Much like localized SEO, our franchise search engine optimization services are geared toward franchisors. This type of SEO helps improve nearby visibility for each of your church locations.
In this case, we do all the local search engine optimization plans described above, but for each location of your franchise. Optimizing multiple Google My Business profiles, performing search engine optimization on a much more complex website, possibly handling franchisee requests, and placing for franchise opportunity keywords are some of the major differences.
The average franchise SEO campaign for churches costs $2,000 or more each month. This budget is shared between technical, on-page, and off-page SEO tasks.
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 plan for ecommerce companies.

When talking to SEO companies targeting churches, make sure to ask if they have in-house web developers, or if technical search engine optimization plans must get outsourced to other firms.
As a church, you want to reach as many people as possible and grow your congregation. Here are some SEO tips that can help improve online visibility and attract more visitors to Catholic churches, Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, Baptist churches, Methodist churches, Episcopal churches, Lutheran churches, Pentecostal churches, Non-denominational churches, Evangelical churches, Community churches, Mega-churches, mosques, synagogues, temples, monasteries, or churches.
Looking for suggested keywords to target within the SEO campaign for your church? We've got you covered!
Before starting an SEO service for a church, 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 programs or services you'd like to promote. Maybe you're trying to attract more people to your Sunday worship services, or perhaps you want to promote a special event or charity drive.
Having this information helps us determine what types of keywords to focus on for content writing and link building.
Pro Tip #1: Churches often target keywords related to their services and location. This helps you attract local people who are searching for a church in their area.
Pro Tip #2: You should consider targeting long-tail keywords, which are more specific and less competitive. For example, "Bible study for kids in Nashville" may be easier to rank for than just "Bible study".
