Search Engine Optimization

fort collins advertising agenciesSearch engines are  used to find the products or services we are after.  Not to mention to filter through the loads of information available and get us the data we want.  Did you know that barely 20% of all users ever click past the first page of results!?

Is your site represented on that first page? Are your competitor’s?

At ADS, Inc., our goal is to work with you to help you increase your ranking on search engine pages. Our search engine optimization services are based on years of research and experience, and we continue to improve our techniques and tools to stay ahead of each and every change in the search engines.

Our objective will be to establish the most commercially valuable keyword phrases and optimize the site for these in order to increase position in the major search engines and increase overall traffic to the site. This will be done through page optimization (both visual to the end user as well as meta/micro-data), content creation and optimization and ongoing maintenance of your site’s content to ensure the search engines are taking note.

  6. Optimize photos and videos for title tags and alt tags for targeted keyword phrases.
  7. Ensure the footer contains all (most) of the site’s pages and the full nav from the header.

  10. Adjust URL for main pages to be more SEO friendly. (where possible.


There are dozens of other strategies we utilize that can’t be outlined here.  One of the more valuable of these is blogging.  There have been numerous articles about the value of content on a website.  Our custom blogging packages include locally written articles tightly based on your company’s vertical industry.  Each blog article includes links back to the associated pages of your site and optimized photos/videos to ensure their SEO value.
