Our SEO Services
Search algorithms change frequently. It’s not easy to pave your way in an ever-changing, increasingly search-based world. With Volume Nine, you’re always one step ahead — because we’re always on top of the latest trends and changes in SEO. We’re fluent in Google algorithms. We speak WordPress. We’re Shopify-savvy. And we know how to speak code.
We dive deep into how search engines and visitors interact with your site, examining keywords, mobile load speeds, sitemaps, redirects, and more. The real prize? An easy-to-read audit report with actionable tips to improve your site’s SEO.
We create the ultimate keyword strategy for your business using a Venn diagram overlap of what your customers are searching for and what you provide. We’ll unlock the right keywords to drive your customers to highly relevant content pages.
We optimize content to keep your business competitive in a search-based world. From keyword insertion and semantic optimization to content expansion, schema, and internal linking, we’ll make sure your content reaches more people than ever before.
We investigate how well your website performs as a whole. From your main navigation and footer to your sitemap and URL structure, we’ll help you optimize your site for Google, Bing, and Yahoo best practices.
We help you get Google Analytics (including GA4), Google Tag Manager, and Google Search Console either set up or properly configured so you know you can trust your data. Because if you can’t measure it, why bother?
We review nine SEO elements including indexability, URL structure, content structure, site structure, site speed, mobile-friendliness, trustworthiness, accessibility, and analytics. You’ll receive prioritized recommendations and frequent checkups to confirm everything’s running smoothly.
Site Launch Support
We evaluate your site launch to ensure you’re adhering to SEO best practices that’ll boost your brand’s visibility and search ranking, not destroy it. You’ll receive custom SEO launch strategies to not only maintain but grow organic traffic after launch.
We ensure that your WordPress website is ranking in search and driving targeted traffic to your site. Choosing a WordPress theme alone doesn’t mean you’re meeting search engine best practices.
We help you leverage Shopify — one of the most popular e-commerce platforms — to strengthen your business’s SEO impact. Using the right platform can make your work easier as well as boost your presence online and in search results.
We create a custom content marketing strategy that’ll improve visibility, drive rankings, and increase conversions for your brand. With simple tweaks to your homepage and insight into the videos you share, you’ll turn first-time visitors into loyal customers.
Great SEO doesn’t happen in a Silo. We’re smart SEOs who help support smart marketers, and we’re here to ensure your SEO program is on-track with what you need to accomplish overall.

We maximize your SEO results by implementing a social media strategy across multiple channels. We’ll promote your website content, while targeting your specific audience, to enhance brand visibility and boost growth.

Here are the answers to some of our most common SEO services questions to figure out if Volume Nine is the right fit for your business.
What type of businesses do you work with?
Yes, we love working with all-size companies. For small businesses, we can pare down our services to help you get things done.
For large companies with more complex internal processes or highly regulated industries, we can tailor your SEO program to strategies and tactics that are implementable and equip you with the SEO insights you need to report upwards in your organization.
How much do your SEO services cost?
Pricing depends on what your company needs. Our SEO retainers start at $2,000/month and go up to $10,000/month.
Do you offer any free SEO services or analysis?
Yes. Once we have an initial chat to determine whether we can help, we will spend some time digging into your website, reviewing competitors, and analyzing your data to create an initial SEO Roadmap for your brand.
Shouldn’t we start with a full SEO Audit?
Maybe. Many brands come to us asking for an SEO audit since it’s a well-established industry best practice. That being said, very few brands need a deep, intensive audit.
Instead, most brands either need a specific issue troubleshot or a glance at technical red flags. We’ll work with you to figure out if you need to invest in a full SEO audit or if something simpler will work.
What if I don’t have a developer to implement technical recommendations?
No worries, we can shift our retainer to include technical implementation if needed.
Can you work with more complex target audiences and topics?
Many of our clients have very niche target audiences, highly complex topics, or long sales cycles. We’ve got a lot of experience helping businesses deliver complex messaging to a very targeted buying audience.
Will you work with Content Management Systems other than WordPress & Shopify?
Absolutely! Although many of our clients utilize WordPress and Shopify, we have experience with many other platforms, including Magento, Netsuite, Drupal, Squarespace, GoDaddy, Hubspot, Joomla, and more. We’ve also worked with several custom-developed and home-grown website platforms.
What if we can’t write new content?
We’ve got you covered! We have a dialed-in content development process and a team of writers ready to help you create and optimize your website content.
Where should I start – SEO or PPC?
Ah, the chicken or the egg.
Ideally, brands should start with both simultaneously. However, if your budget is limited, we can chat with you to help figure out which one strategically makes the most sense for your internet marketing.
Can you help with optimizing platforms off-site, like Amazon, YouTube, or Google My Business?
We sure can. Great SEO is about appearing wherever your customers are searching. Whether it’s a search engine like Google or an e-commerce platform like Amazon, we’ve got you covered.
Why pick a flexible SEO program instead of SEO packages offered by other firms?
We know those silver/gold/platinum packages are easy to understand and look cheap. We used to sell packages like that for that exact reason. The problem is that great SEO results are almost impossible to achieve in packaged SEO services.
Our SEO program helps you stay nimble and focused on getting results instead of forcing you to stick inside a set of pre-prescribed tactics.
How do you measure the success of my SEO program?
Measuring success is a little different for everyone.
However, we start with your goals and convert those to KPIs with milestones. From there, we’ll track additional metrics to help us get the complete picture of how your website’s performing.
