If you're not staying ahead of Google's algorithm updates, you're falling down the rankings.

Start by solving these SEO problems:

1. You're not demonstrating authority to Google
2. Site hierarchy is more flat than it is deep
3. Your blog posts are not ranking in the first 3 months

You need more than just words to demonstrate authority to Google.

If we read all of the copy on your website, or if we asked your loyal customer base, we would understand what you’re an authority in nine times out of ten. But what if we asked Google? If Google doesn’t agree with us or your customers, or if Google doesn’t think you’re an authority in anything, then there is much SEO work to be done. But don’t worry, the strategy and tactics for building your topical authority are exciting, and the results are exponential!

The simplest way to satisfy Google is by building a deep site architecture.

Imagine for a moment that you’re on the website of a popular clothing retailer. You’re looking for a long-sleeved shirt to wear outdoors. You expect to find a menu button that says either “Men” or “Women”, and then you expect to see “Shirts” shortly afterwards, and you’re off to browsing the selection.
