Engage will help you stand out in Google search using local and on-page SEO. When someone is actively looking for a church, the typical thing to do is Google it.
Local SEO helps churches promote their services and beliefs to local prospects. To gather information for local search, search engines rely on signals such as local content, social profile pages, links, and citations to provide the most relevant local results to the user.
WHY YOU NEED LOCAL SEO
Local search is powerful for churches: four out of five consumers use search to find local information, which means if your church isn’t optimized for local search, you could be missing out on 80% of potential guests. In short, local SEO is critical if you want your church to stay relevant.
On-page SEO is the process of optimizing different front-end and back-end elements of your website so that it ranks better in search engines and brings in new traffic. These On-page SEO elements include page titles, headers, and meta descriptions.
WHY YOU NEED ON-PAGE SEO
You need to meet your audience where they are looking – online. People search on Google and other search engines to find churches near them. On-page SEO helps your church show up in those search results so more people can find, contact, and visit your church.
