Our Chicago SEO team will gather thousands of different keywords and pull a number of metrics to determine a keyword’s potential value. These include search volume, our own proprietary competition formula, and other different variables in order to determine how valuable these keywords are for different pages on your website.
We will strategically and gracefully recommend how to infuse the SEO strategy onto your website’s pages. From there, we’ll audit your site’s overall structure and functionality, making the site’s experience optimal for both Google and your end users. These days, user experience and SEO go hand in hand and it will improve your ability to rank.
For businesses that have a physical location, such as corporate headquarters, retail stores and restaurants, a big part of driving search engine traffic to your website is competing in Google’s local search pack and on Google Maps. Our process includes editing your local listings and populating them with search-engine friendly content, as well as reporting on local traffic, reviews and local links.
When it comes to giving your site higher authority, it’s not just about getting links, but getting quality links. Our Chicago SEO team will audit your website’s links and remove anything potentially harmful, as well as build links to your site through a number of different avenues.
The best way to build domain authority is to create well-written, quality content that will generate both links as well as shares on social media. We can help your business by coming up with a strategy and putting out content that will help bring traffic to your website.
Our job is to communicate value through clear and transparent reporting. You’ll be able to see where you’re ranking daily for each of your optimized keywords, get breakdowns of search engine traffic, competitive analysis and more.
Our SEO reports are 100% proprietary and customized for each client.

Let’s discuss your project
“The web design team worked closely with me to capture the unique essence of my restaurants, and the SEO team was instrumental in making that experience more visible online. With an understanding of what makes restaurants unique, the SEO team identified some keywords that we now rank well for and have without a doubt brought in new customers.”

Quality inbound links determine a web page’s value. We’ll get you ranked higher in search engines by earning links to your website through creative and strategic link building.
How Search Engines Work
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a fun, fast paced, and ever-changing industry. The major search engines have a tedious task at hand. They continue to invest heavily into fighting spam, understanding semantics, and ultimately ensuring the most accurate and insightful search results for their users. Google in particular has more than 30 trillion websites in its index. Every time someone searches something in Google, Google must sift through all of those in attempt to offer the ten very best results out of what could be millions (or sometimes billions) of relevant webpages.
Our SEO Philosophy
This is where The Ocean Agency and other renowned, ethical, and data-minded agencies come into play. We are here to help Google and the other major search engines understand that your website is relevant to a specific set of search terms. Specifically, The Ocean Agency’s Chicago SEO experts will research and cultivate a sensible, unique, and data-driven SEO strategy aimed at achieving your website’s traffic goals.
