Off-site SEO is all about how well your business appears on maps, directories, apps and all other online touchpoints. This aspect of SEO ensures your winery is being found wherever anyone is looking, and includes some of the following aspects:

  • Auditing and citation building for consistent business information

  • Optimization to Google, Bing & Apple Maps
  • Optimization of Google Business Profile

Content Marketing SEO

Google actively rewards content (articles/blogs/resources) that is highly valuable to viewers by ranking it higher in search results. Content Marketing SEO involves the development of pages and ongoing blog articles that provide true value to visitors eager to visit your region or taste your style of wine. These sections of your website provide driving directions, tasting itineraries, recommendations on lodging and B&Bs, etc. Don’t be afraid to provide links to other businesses in your industry… it signals to Google that you are a wealth of information about your specific niche and worthy of them ranking you higher in search results.

This service from Vinbound includes:

  • Analysis of website pages and suggestions of page development to improve value of site and SEO. Focus on specific page development satisfying specific long-tail searches (i.e. Best wineries to visit in Dundee, Oregon)
  • Development of overall website content strategy
