SEO Services for Restaurants

We've been providing small business SEO services for more than 18 years! Over the years, we've offered restaurants a variety of search marketing services, including local, enterprise, franchise, and ecommerce SEO campaigns.

We combine technical, off-page, and on-page search engine optimization in our restaurant SEO campaigns. You'll get a balanced approach to optimizing your WordPress, WooCommerce, Shopify, BigCommerce or Laravel search engine placements.

When starting any restaurant SEO campaign, you need to figure out what your goals are and how you're going to measure your success.

It doesn't mean you can't adjust your restaurant SEO campaign. If we find a certain SEO tactic is providing your restaurant with better results, we will likely adjust the plan to take advantage of that finding.

If your restaurant could benefit from an increased position in search engines, read on!

Types of Restaurant SEO Campaigns

We offer local, enterprise, franchise, and ecommerce SEO services for restaurants, so one of those should be helpful for your restaurant SEO campaign. If you choose WebCitz for your online marketing, we'll assemble a custom SEO strategy for your restaurants.

Local SEO Plans for Restaurants

Local SEO campaigns are what we do most often for restaurants. More than likely, this is because so many local restaurants are looking for help improving their placements in search engine results.

For example, restaurants in Chicago would want to be seen higher in organic search results for "Chicago restaurants." The work would include performing a local SEO audit of your site, optimizing Google My Business, performing on-page optimizations, doing LSI phrasing keyword research, fixing your backlink profile, reviewing your business citations, managing your online reputation, and possibly even optimizing your conversion rate. Your restaurant can show up higher in Google Maps with these types of SEO improvements.

The budgets for local SEO campaigns for restaurants are often $800 or more per month.

Enterprise SEO for Restaurants

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

In most cases, this means targeting very competitive keywords on a national level or managing searching 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 SEO strategy. During an enterprise SEO campaign, you can expect to see our SEO team work hard to audit your restaurant website and its past SEO work, build out a content marketing strategy, then move onto technical, on-page and off-page SEO services.

The recommended budget of enterprise SEO for restaurants usually starts at $8,000 per month.

Franchise SEO Services for Restaurants

Just like local SEO, our franchise SEO services are tailored to franchises. This form of SEO helps improve local visibility for each of your restaurant locations.

In this case, we do all the local SEO services described above, but for each location of your franchise. Optimizing multiple Google My Business profiles, performing SEO on a much more complex website, possibly handling franchisee requests, and ranking for franchise opportunity keywords are some of the major differences.

The average franchise SEO campaign for restaurants costs $2,000 or more each month.

Ecommerce SEO Services for Restaurants

Our specialty is helping you rank your storefront's online products and services better. This type of online digtal marketing is necessary for any ecommerce business.

Are you searching for a professional SEO agency for restaurants to help market your products? As a full-service SEO firm, we have enormous experience developing and marketing ecommerce websites built on WooCommerce, Shopify, and BigCommerce. The ideal pairing for your restaurant is working with an SEO company that has onsite ecommerce developers and search engine optimization experts. Our departments can work together to provide efficient technical, on-page, and off-page SEO services. We'll make sure your structured data, content silos, URL structures, and 301 redirects are handled right.

The average costs of ecommerce SEO campaigns for restaurants is often $1,600 or more each month.

How We Perform the Best Search Engine Optimization for Restaurants

As a professional SEO company, our restaurant SEO packages fall into three categories: technical, onsite, and offsite search engine optimization.

Restaurant Technical SEO Tactics

Almost every restaurant knows about technical SEO. It often involves speeding up your pages, passing Google Core Web Vitals, implementing SSL certificates, fixing responsive issues, removing duplicate content, adding structured data, creating XML/HTML sitemaps, setting up Google Search Console, and fixing any other issues uncovered by an SEO audit. Our in-house web developers for restaurants can help fix any technical SEO problem in WordPress, Shopify, BigCommerce, or Laravel.

Restaurant On-Page SEO Services

It's often the case that restaurants 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 SEO 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 engines. In addition to that, we also offer restaurants on-page SEO improvements like writing meta descriptions, optimizing page titles, fixing heading tags, building content silos, designing infographics and videos, and reducing keyword cannibalization.

Restaurant Off-Page SEO Tactics

When we look at various restaurant backlink profiles, we often notice they've forgotten about off-page SEO. It's time to check your backlink profile if you've been struggling to rank for your targeted keywords for years. Backlink analysis helps restaurants find malicious or spammy backlinks, such as low-quality PBN backlinks. We then put together SEO recommendations for restaurants for white-hat link building like guest posting, niche / curated edits, HARO outreach, social media citations, NAP citations, and more!

Platforms We Work in for Restaurant SEO Services

We're an expert SEO firm serving restaurants, and we have in-house web developers and SEO experts. When performing search engine marketing for restaurants, we can leverage our knowledge of the most popular platforms, like WordPress, WooCommerce, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Laravel.

Restaurant WordPress SEO Group

WordPress is the most popular CMS for restaurants. We're often hired to optimize the Yoast SEO settings, tweak Structured Data plugins, fix content silos, and optimize URL structures on WordPress sites. Find out more about our WordPress SEO campaigns.

Restaurant WooCommerce SEO Group

Because it's the standard of ecommerce within WordPress, it's no surprise WooCommerce is so popular. For our WooCommerce SEO services, we often help restaurants build out better product descriptions, improve traffic from organic search, improve product silos, set up Product structured data, implement 301 redirects, and more!

Restaurant Shopify SEO Agency

This is often the most popular ecommerce platform for smaller ecommerce ventures and startups. Restaurants on Shopify often need help improving page content, setting up SEO-friendly product collections, writing product descriptions, fixing template issues, fixing broken links, and more! Learn more about our Shopify SEO options.

Restaurant BigCommerce SEO Agencies

In comparison with Shopify, BigCommerce has a much more expansive API, making it a great platform for restaurant ecommerce SEO projects. In addition to some rather complex headless features, we've got a lot of experience building enterprise SEO campaigns within BigCommerce. Our SEO company can help you with BigCommerce SEO campaigns! Our SEO company has you covered with technical BigCommerce SEO campaigns!

Restaurant Laravel SEO Agencies

There aren't many Laravel websites around, but when we see one, our web development team and Laravel SEO team is eager to help. We've worked with the Laravel platform for a long time, building mobile and web applications. If your restaurant uses Laravel, our team can help you improve various SEO aspects of Laravel, including how the routing and blade templates impact your search engine optimization.

When talking to search engine optimization agencies for restaurants, ask if they have in-house web developers, or if technical SEO services have to be outsourced.

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
George Ormond

George Ormond

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!

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

David Wurst and WebCitz have been a great hosting company to work with for over 10 years. They provide exceptional service and knowledge with their customers and always get it done immediately. I will never work with any other company.

Determine Goals for Your Restaurant SEO Work

It's important to figure out where you're at with your search engine rankings and website health before starting an internet marketing campaign for your restaurant.

We'll be more efficient at SEO for your restaurant if we have that information.

Our Ahrefs and Surfer SEO accounts can scan your website and provide us with detailed information about ranking history, technical SEO problems, and on-page SEO issues so you know where you stand. In addition, we can get a good idea of your backlink profile through that tool and others, but often a manual review of them is needed for a full understanding.

In the first few months of the campaign, this information will help us formulate the goals of the search engine optimization service for your restaurant.

Determine Success Metrics for Your Restaurant SEO Service

It's important to set expectations with your restaurants regarding the search engine optimization service.

For starters, it's not recommended to expect to rank highly or get a lot of traffic within the first few months of restaurant SEO. Rather, you should look at SEO for your restaurant as a long-term investment, which will likely be needed for years to come.

That isn't a biased opinion from a search engine optimization company helping restaurants. That is unfortunately the reality of restaurant search campaigns. If you've been struggling for years to get the search rankings your restaurant website needs, it isn't because a special switch hasn't been flipped yet. Instead, it is that Google has reviewed your entire restaurant website presence, your specific landing pages, your backlink profile, your SEO strategy, and the history of your website when determining your placement. You won't get long-term results by running an SEO campaign for your restaurants for a couple of months. There will always be content marketing improvements needed to build out supporting page content, improve internal linking of new and existing content, ethically build backlinks, and more.

Besides that, it's important to know how to gauge success in the early stages of SEO. Google Analytics isn't a good early indicator of improvements from your restaurant SEO efforts. Why, you ask? Because SEO often starts by getting better placements in search results before you can get more traffic. Throughout your search engine optimization, we'll work on getting your website into the top 100 results, or from page 8 to page 4, or possibly from page 2 to page 1. When you get to the first page of search results for all restaurants in your target market, you'll start to see measurable traffic improvements in Google Analytics.

Adjusting Your Restaurant SEO Strategy

You need to understand that we may need to adjust the strategy and tactics applied to your restaurant SEO service.

The more SEO work we put in, the more we'll find success in places we didn't expect. We may also discover that improving the ranking for a particular phrase or page isn't giving us the results we want.

If your restaurant isn't getting good ROI from the current SEO tactics, we'll communicate our findings and alter our SEO strategy.

Throughout the whole restaurant SEO process, you should feel like you're part of our search marketing firm.
