In our perspective, Technical SEO aims to enhance your website’s technical components to facilitate a better understanding and more effective ranking by search engines. This ultimately results in improved search performance and an enhanced user experience.

Our technical SEO services encompass various crucial elements, such as evaluating website speed, ensuring mobile compatibility, assessing site structure and XML sitemaps, configuring the robots.txt file to control page crawling, securing HTTPS connections, overseeing canonical tags, implementing structured data (schema markup), and more.

Our team starts with a comprehensive technical SEO audit to pinpoint significant issues and identify organic growth opportunities. We then consider keyword priorities and on-page optimizations to compile a list of priority enhancements based on their potential impact. These changes can be implemented directly on your website, with ongoing performance monitoring, or prepared for your developers to execute.

At Tuff, our Technical SEO Experts are responsible for working directly with clients to understand their organic and overall site goals. From there, after conducting a full technical SEO audit, our team will get to work optimizing your website’s technical aspects to improve its search engine visibility and performance. Our primary goal is to ensure that search engines can easily crawl, index, and understand a website’s content, resulting in higher rankings and increased organic traffic.

Technical SEO projects vary according to a company’s objectives, website, and internal team. To offer a rough estimate from Tuff, monthly SEO retainers can start at a few hundred dollars for startups with modest requirements and go up to several thousand dollars for larger companies with extensive needs. For one-time projects or audits, we determine a project fee based on the website’s page count and the intricacy of the work.

In broad terms, fundamental SEO services such as on-page optimization and keyword research tend to be more budget-friendly compared to comprehensive SEO strategies encompassing technical SEO, content development, link building, and continuous upkeep.

Selecting the appropriate agency partner, whether for technical SEO or any growth-related objectives, stands as a pivotal step in achieving the desired outcomes.
Before you start your agency hunt, we recommend gaining a clear understanding of your SEO objectives, financial considerations, and expectations to ensure a prosperous collaboration. This initial step assists in streamlining your agency search, ultimately leading you to a partner that perfectly aligns with your needs.

And while engaging an SEO agency proves beneficial for numerous businesses, it doesn’t constitute a universal solution. Alternatively, you can explore the option of skilled contractors or freelancers for smaller websites or immediate problem-solving. In such cases, you may assume a more active role in management and guidance, which can be suitable when your technical SEO requirements are relatively straightforward.

Ultimately, the decision of whether to engage an SEO agency hinges on your individual circumstances, objectives, and available resources.

Tuff stands out among technical SEO agencies due to our dedication to delivering long-term, high-quality results. Unlike some SEO agencies that focus solely on quick wins, we believe in the value of a comprehensive, data-driven approach. Our technical SEO audits are meticulously conducted to uncover deep-seated issues and potential growth opportunities. Our team of seasoned SEO professionals collaborates closely with partners to devise and implement tailored strategies aimed at significantly enhancing organic search performance over the long term.

The SEO landscape is constantly evolving with frequent algorithm updates and new best practices.

We invest in ongoing training, attend industry conferences, and engage with the SEO community to stay updated on the latest trends and technologies.
