We build search-optimized websites.
Who are your search competitors? Why do they out-rank you? What will it take to compete? We’ll pull back the curtain and develop strategies to boost your rankings.
Every page on your website represents an opportunity to target valuable search queries. We’ll do the research needed to uncover the queries that will benefit your organization the most and optimize your site to target them. Our keyword research includes analyzing competitor sites, using various keyword research tools (Moz, Raven Tools, Ubersuggest, Google Keyword Planner, and others) and working with your own keyword suggestions.
Duplicate content is a common SEO issue, and often website owners have little or no idea that it’s occurring. When you build a website with Murmur, we will identify and fix duplicate content issues.
Once we have identified important keywords for your brand we will use various on-page optimization techniques to target those queries. This includes keyword placement, metadata optimization, content optimization, internal linking, and more.
Schema code is used by search engines to identify different types of content and display that content appropriately in search results. Adding schema markup to certain kinds of content on your website can improve visibility in search engines.
Good SEO copywriting takes all the skills of a good digital copywriter but also considers search intent and Google’s ability to interpret and understand content semantically. While SEO copywriting may once have been as easy as placing keywords on the page, Google has become much more sophisticated in the way it values and understands content.

We’ll find broken links, bad redirects, and duplicate content, and redirect those URLs in order to improve rankings for the correct pages and make your site easier to crawl.
We’ll make sure your site is equipped with an up-to-date sitemap and robots.txt file so search bots can better read and index your site.
