SEO Solutions for Contractors
SEO for contractor's websites ideally starts with our SEO 1st approach to contractor website development services
. Before starting a website design for a contractor, we thoroughly research what keywords your customers use to search for your services. We will also perform a competitive analysis of the digital marketing your competitors are using, both on their own website and the company’s Google Business Profile. The Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) is the single most important factor in ranking in the local map pack/map-based listings.
Armed with that data, we'll build an amazing website for your contracting company that has a site structure and content targeted and optimized to rank on the first page of Google's search results.
Next, we'll put our SEO services for contractors
to work and increase your visibility in the search engines, targeting both the local search results in the map display and the natural or organic results too. Visibility in the SERP's (Search Engine Results Pages) by BANG! performing Search Engine Optimization leads to increased credibility, which then leads to profitability. And isn't that one of the main reasons you became a contractor?

FAQ's About SEO For The Construction Industry
What does it cost to SEO a website?
Two things first:
#1 - It's more cost-effective to perform SEO on a site as it is built than to "bolt on" SEO after the fact. For a typical small business site, excluding content writing, it generally only costs an additional $1,000 to do on-page SEO during the site design or redesign process. That's the perfect time to do SEO. On an existing site, if things like the site structure, navigational links, page, and image filenames on the site, aren't done correctly to begin with, it's cheaper to start from scratch vs trying to "fix" an existing poorly put-together site.
#2 - Half of the SEO process isn't about your website. For long-term SEO success, you'll want to spend $1,000 or more every month, depending on how competitive your market is. This budget is used to add additional fresh website content every month, either through adding brand new pages such as blog posts, as well as "beefing up" existing pages and optimizing them for SEO. These tasks are all considered on-page SEO.
Off-page SEO, on the other hand, includes tasks that include...
- Building site citations across local directory listings
- Adding listings to online directories appropriate for the construction industry
- Guest posts on other websites in your industry that provide dofollow backlinks back to your website
- Sponsorships on organizations' websites, often not-for-profits, that are either relevant to your contracting services or your geographic area. These links back to your website are often quite strong
- Regularly building links from other relevant websites to yours
Off-page SEO tasks like these should be half of your SEO budget. A good SEO agency will perform these tasks on a monthly basis, yet studies show agencies spend less than 1/4 of their time building these important links. In our opinion, that's the number one reason an SEO campaign fails... failure to acquire high authority and relevant links to the website.

How much do SEO services cost?
On a typical contractor website, it adds apx. $1,000 dollars to the cost of building a website. Then an ongoing monthly budget of $1,100 to $3,000 per month for the SEO campaign that includes updating and optimizing website content, new content development such as blog posts, and link building. We also provide monthly reporting that includes monitoring analytics, current vs last month's keyword rankings, your current domain authority score, and your backlink profile showing growth over time.

How much is SEO per month?
A typical range is $1,100 to $3,000, depending on the SEO work to be performed, tasks to be accomplished during the month, and how competitive your specific keyword phrases are to rank for. For example, in the Phoenix, AZ metro area, most contractor-related keyword phrases are highly competitive. Click here for full details of our SEO packages and pricing
Why does SEO cost so much?
SEO is a very time-intensive task. SEO experts will spend many hours working on your campaign every month. It's a highly labor-intensive job. At BANG! we have a proven track record and an SEO team with decades of experience. They'll be analyzing a lot of data every month using SEO tools like Semrush, which isn't an inexpensive tool on its own. Especially when starting your SEO project, they'll contact you frequently about your digital marketing expectations and needs. There then will likely be follow-up questions after that first agency-client meeting. They need to conduct a thorough analysis of your business's marketing goals to make sure they are on the right track to deliver a contractor SEO success story for you. And before you decide SEO is expensive, read the next question...
Is an SEO campaign better than Google ads?
We think so for several reasons.
#1 with google ads 3/4th to 4/5th of people completely ignore Google ads. Can you really afford to ignore that high a percentage of your prospective customers?
#2 Google ads are pay-per-click, meaning anytime someone clicks on your ad, you just paid for that click... regardless of whether or not the customer follows through and gives you their business! Even the most optimized Google ad campaigns and websites convert less than 10% of the time. That means you wind up paying for ten ads just to get one person to contact you. That means that $10 per click ad, may cost you $100 just to talk
to one customer. Again, that doesn't mean that one potential customer will do business with you.
In comparison, our SEO campaign doesn't cost more if Ten or Ten Thousand potential customers come to your website. Your cost is the same regardless of how many site visitors we create for you.
One other big advantage of SEO is unlike Google ads, the SEO work we do today will last for years
. With ads, when you stop paying, the ads, and the customers, stop immediately.
What does an SEO company actually do?
The short answer is a series of tasks done by an SEO expert, both on the site itself and off-page tasks, such as building backlinks, with the intent to increase search rankings for the website on the search engines. Increasing the visibility of a site to page one of the search rankings results in more traffic from potential customers searching for your services.
A reputable SEO company specializing in internet marketing strategies for contractors will have its own contractor website design team, and its own SEO team made up of W2 employees, not outside contractors that will come and go. The right firm will be well-positioned to take care of most, if not all, of your digital marketing needs. We say most because some SEO firms, including BANG!, do not provide SMM (Social Media Marketing) services as it does not provide contractors with SEO ranking improvements. If SMM is something you desire as well, we have other agencies we can refer you to who are dedicated to social media.
Which is the best company for SEO services?
Not to brag, and is it bragging if you can really do it, but BANG! should be on your list of firms to review if you are looking for SEO for your contractor business. We've worked with many contractors with a wide variety of specialties and have never had a website we couldn't improve their rankings significantly. For example, we helped a Scottsdale, AZ, plumbing company grow its Internet sales by 440% in just six months! See our reviews page
for a video featuring Joni Vore from Apple Plumbing.
One of the other distinguishing benefits of BANG! is our support team that responds quickly to your requests, often within an hour. We also have our own SEO team... not outsourced to India.
BANG! website designers and developers also understand how to code, so if you have a special requirement for your website, we can build it for you.
Last, by handling our own hosting and managing our own servers, we have better performance than most of our competitors. We control both which websites are on which server and how many websites are provisioned on each server, making server performance a non-issue at BANG!. Our competitors, well, they often don't have this kind of control, and their hosting companies load too many sites on a server, and then the site speed and Google Core Vitals numbers suffer.

Is Google SEO dead? Is SEO a dying industry? Will SEO exist in 5 years?
No, far from it. More and more companies are investing in SEO because it works. Even Google says SEO will exist in the future. John Mueller, the Google spokesperson, states, "SEO will still be popular in the future.
" He doesn't think that Google and other search engines will advance to the point that SEO will not be needed to get sites to rank well.
I have a website that is with a contracted web company that is doing a terrible job. What risks do I run in changing to a new SEO company with regard to my online positioning?
Unless your current contract has locked you in, make a move as soon as possible to a new SEO agency. The only risk I would caution you about is making sure you can keep your domain name. If the age of your domain is more than a year, it has value, and you should continue to use it. With that said, if your current SEO company isn't showing progress in getting you on the first page of Google, it's time for a change. You really have very little to lose. The main reason companies switch to a new SEO agency is the lack of ranking results by their existing SEO services provider. Monitor the web reports or analytics on the site. You should see increased visitor traffic after a few months. By the way, the 2nd reason companies switch SEO firms is the lack of communication from the agency.
