The whole point of marketing your plumbing business online is to increase traffic to your website and to gain more leads from it. Organic search engine optimization (SEO) includes all the methods utilized to grow your business online without paying for advertising. Pay per click (PPC) is paying for advertisements to be placed at the top of search engine results pages (SERP). The long-term goal of all of your online marketing should be able to make it to the top of your local plumber searches without paying anything extra. Any organic SEO consultant can tell you it is important for your plumbing business for a few reasons.
- Adaptability Organic SEO tactics are adaptable as time moves forward, while paid methods are set when you begin the campaign.
- Efficiency Organic SEO is cost-efficient because it is a series of steps you take to get higher SERP rankings. While you may pay for optimization, you aren’t paying for advertisements.
- Sustainability Once your plumbing business makes it to the top of local plumbing searches through organic SEO, the only way to lose that spot is to stop optimizing, or if you shut your business down.
- Visibility Organic SEO tactics will get your plumbing business website in front of more people over an extended period of time. It’s best for long-term growth.
Organic SEO is a series of operations that help get your plumbing website higher in Google rankings than your competition. While the first two or three company names you’ll see are labeled as ads because someone used a PPC campaign to get their business posted there, the next businesses all got to the top of the search results by having fully optimized websites and content that offer unique and valuable information in a user-friendly and efficient manner. Proper organic optimization methods save you thousands of dollars while still getting your plumbing business ranked higher on Google search results. Plumbing Webmasters helps drive traffic to your website and increase your online leads through organic SEO tactics.

Who Should You Trust For SEO?
The SEO experts at Plumbing Webmasters have been learning about and perfecting organic optimization strategies for years. Google updates its algorithm several times every year to punish websites that use black hat SEO tactics. These updates punish all parties that violate content policies, regardless of if you knew you violated the rules or violated them by accident.
Another problem with these updates is that it usually takes a while for Google to catch perpetrators. Some cheaper SEO companies might try to lure you in with the promise of cheap SEO. They will probably deliver on this by violating Google policies on your website and in your content. You’ll see a short-term boost in website traffic, but Google will eventually penalize your website. At that point your SEO company may have taken your money and run, leaving you with a damaged online reputation to try to recover from.
Not every cheap SEO option practices black hat SEO, but why take the risk? At Plumbing Webmasters, our dedicated team of coders, graphic designers, and content writers are standing by to optimize your website and improve your local plumbing leads.
Google Search Quality Guidelines for Plumbers
Google has a definitive list of prohibited SEO practices. Black hat SEO will get your website penalized sooner or later. Every update Google has made over the past decade was to bring quality content to users who needed it. They wanted to give websites with unique, user-friendly, and valuable information to users searching for it. For instance, the Google Penguin update cracked down on keyword stuffing and link-building schemes. Plumbing contractors who throw random or repetitive keywords in unnatural places have their content devalued by Google, while contractors who use proper organic SEO methods are rated higher.
Properly optimized content ranks better on other search engines as well, so when you optimize your website for Google, you’re also optimizing it for sites like Bing and Yahoo.

HTTPS, 404 Errors, and Conversion Rates
Your conversion rate is your key defining trait for success. Your ability to convert website traffic into a sale or a client is the best tool to measure the benefits of your organic SEO. The entire point of organic SEO is increasing your leads and your conversion rate, so that’s what most optimization tactics are based around. Websites that use HTTPS over HTTP, or that have 404 errors, affect your Google ranking and overall optimization. Google ranks sites that use HTTPS, or Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol, higher than sites that use normal HTTP. At the same time, websites with 404 errors lose value according to Google’s algorithm. That’s because 404 errors negatively impact user experience, and one of the key components of Google’s quality content guidelines is how user-friendly it is.
When you hire our Plumber SEO Company, we worry about these things, so you don’t have to. We use HTTPS for your website and ensure that every link is working. If something happens and one of your pages goes down, call us, and we’ll fix the problem if it’s on our end. We offer high-quality and comprehensive content management and online marketing to boost your conversion rate.
