Robintek and PWG Marketing Join Forces to Create a Strategic Partnership

(Columbus, Ohio) Robintek, a website development and digital agency based in Columbus, and PWG Marketing, an inbound marketing and content strategy firm located in Perrysburg, have recently partnered to provide clients with a broader range of services.

Joe Jorgensen, President of Robintek, states that he is excited about how the partnership will expand what the company currently offers its clients. “While Robintek has been in business since 1998 and is currently the web developer for over 500 Ohio-based companies, partnering with PWG Marketing enables us to offer content and inbound marketing services as well,” states Jorgensen. “As content marketing continues to expand, management at Robintek desires to grow beyond helping our clients with building their websites. We want to assist them with their online marketing efforts as well.”

Patrick Giammarco, owner of PWG Marketing and a Master Duct Tape Marketing Consultant who is also certified by Content Marketing Institute, is equally enthusiastic. “We’re very excited. By partnering with such a seasoned company, PWG Marketing will be able to add website development to the content marketing, inbound marketing, and marketing strategy that we already offer our clients,” Giammarco commented.

The Relationship Between Quality Content and Conversions

Companies from start-ups operating on a shoestring budget to those with significantly greater resources can benefit from SEO packages that boost findability. In addition, organizations must consider the role that strategic, well-written content plays in converting website visitors into paying clients. When developing content strategy, PWG Marketing impresses on clients the need for engaging
content. Truly engaging content should include:

  • Content that benefits readers, such as a how-to articles and videos
  • Some type of personalization that allows the reader to feel invested in the content
  • SEO best practices while still having a natural flow to written material
  • Information that indicates the content marketer knows its audience

Companies interested in web development or marketing services may contact Joe Jorgensen at Robintek at 614.888.3001 or joe@robintek.com. Patrick Giammarco of PWG Marketing can be reached at 419.329.4256 or patrick@pwgmarketing.com.

Industry News:

Search engine king Google has announced that its Google+ network is putting more emphasis on “Interests,” and thus diminishing its Google+ Local pages for businesses.  They have reiterated that they are still committed to local search, but do not believe Google+ is the proper platform for displaying business information.  You can read the full article here, via Search Engine Journal, but here are the highlights:
  • Google+ started as a social network, but never gained the traction they were looking for to compete with the likes of Facebook. They kept the elements that were successful, like Photos, Communities, and Collections.  Google+ Local was the place where Google displayed local business data, but have decided that is no longer the appropriate place for that information.
  • The change will not affect SEO or the ability to attract new customers from Google. They will continue to display local business data in both normal search results and in map results, in fact, the map results now contain more information than ever about local businesses, which is a good thing.
  • The Google My Business dashboard is not changing, as a business owner, you will still update any information about your business there. Data from there will show up in Google Search, Maps, and mobile search.
Local Search is still an immensely powerful tool to attract new customers.  Per the article, here are some statistics that support this:
Robintek SEO services target local search and review your website to elevate your business in search results using a variety of tools, starting at $95/month.  Consistency is key, and Google will reward businesses that have consistent information across the web.  Our specialists know the best techniques for your business, let us know how we can be of service!

Industry News:

Does Mobile Friendliness Affect Your Website’s Search Ranking?

Mobile responsiveness is one of the biggest hot-button topics in digital marketing in 2015 as we head into 2016, and that was only strengthened by Google’s algorithm change in April of this year, putting a premium on mobile-friendliness of websites as one of the more important parameters for good search ranking.

In addition, 2015 is the first year that more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in the United States.  In anticipation of this, Google made the change to their algorithm to emphasize the importance of either mobile responsiveness of websites, or the existence of a standalone mobile website or landing page.  Google has also created a mobile-friendly test tool that allows users to enter a webpage URL and see if it is responsive.
Per Google Webmasters’ blog, this update will not affect searches from tablets or desktops.  Only mobile-friendly pages on a website will feel the positive impact, not the entire site, so essentially, making one page mobile responsive doesn’t mean Google will recognize your website as a whole to be mobile-friendly.  Finally, mobile-friendliness is recognized equally whether you have a responsive website design, or a standalone mobile site.
Robintek has been building mobile responsive websites for many years and has retro-fitted many sites for mobile-friendliness as well.  We are happy to consult on your needs and budget to determine which path is right for your business.  Let us know how we can be of service!

Industry News: SEO

You Keep Saying SEO – What Does That Mean?

SEO is a hot term in the marketing world today, and it seems like it’s one of those things you need, even if you aren’t exactly sure why. In the digital marketing realm, SEO is the cornerstone to any good strategy for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

First things first, what does it stand for? SEO is search engine optimization. We can almost hear you saying to yourself, “great, I’m still not sure what that means.” Search engine optimization is the practice of ensuring that a website can be found on search engines, by “baking in” relevant words and phrases for your business, as well as generating new content for the site (blog, updated FAQs) and having links to your company social media channels.

Why is this important? If you’ve put forth the effort to have a great looking website, the objective is to have as many eyeballs see it as possible, and for that to happen, the effort to make it optimized for Google (and Bing, Yahoo, etc.) needs as much attention and care as the aesthetics of your website itself. It doesn’t stop there though, as there are directories out there everywhere (YP.com, WhitePages, CitySearch, etc.) can list your business under specific categories, and having accurate name, address, phone number, and URL information (NAPU) is very important.

Google is the Goliath of the search engine realm, so any SEO efforts need to be made with them in mind first. What does Google want to see in order for your site to come up as highly as possible? Things like the title of the webpage, the meta description, and the headers need to be “keyword-rich” with the most relevant terms that users will type into a search engine to find your type of business. For example, if you have an antique shop, terms like “antique” and “vintage” should appear frequently.

Going beyond the keywords and phrases that will help your website get found, it’s not enough to just do those things once and leave it be. Google rewards sites that are constantly generating new content, whether that is in the form of a blog, or updating a frequently asked questions page, or even frequent posts to your social media channels. Reviews are ever increasing in popularity and importance to search engines. Google business pages now prominently display star ratings based on the reviews they’ve received.

As if that is not enough, Google also looks favorably on websites that are responsive to mobile devices, meaning they will shrink and reshape themselves on the screen of a phone or tablet, without sacrificing the integrity of the site and its content (not to mention, making sure you can still read it!)

Still not convinced as to why SEO is important for your website? Consider these numbers, courtesy of Paper.li and Forbes:

  • 97% of consumers now search for local businesses online
  • 78% of small businesses get at least a quarter of their new customers via social media
  • 75% of users do not scroll past the first page of search results
  • Over 82% of internet users use search

Robintek has the expertise to help with all these things, from redesigning your website to be sure it is properly optimized to feeding your business’ accurate NAPU info to over 75 directories in one fell swoop. The process might seem overwhelming, so let us know how we can be of service to you!

“The average consumer has come to associate marketing with some form of deception, and is constantly on the lookout for “the catch” in every message. The expression “marketing tactics” reminds us of all the fast food, luxury cars, unnecessary cleaning products, disposable fashion, and undesirable services that somehow someone managed to make us buy. But why is it that we rarely associate the word “marketing” with social good?”

“Social media often feeds into the discovery of new content such as news stories, and “discovery” is a search activity. Social media can also help build links that in turn support into SEO efforts. Many people also perform searches at social media sites to find social media content. Social connections may also impact the relevancy of some search results, either within a social media network or at a ‘mainstream’ search engine.”
