What is Organic SEO?
Organic SEO refers to search engine optimization, which aims to improve a brand’s visibility on search engine results pages (SERPs) through organic (non-paid) means. While the technique is most commonly applied to primary websites, it can also apply to business listings, social media pages, and other web pages affiliated with your HVAC company. Because SEO is a dependent operation, it adheres to external ideologies (Google) which change and evolve over time. What optimized a webpage for search in 2012 no longer will in 2018. Modern components of organic search engine optimization include:
- User Intent: Researching and marketing your target audience’s’ needs and wants
- Link Building: Generating quality backlinks along with embedding internal and external links
- On Page SEO: Optimization that takes place on your main website
- Off Site SEO: Optimization that takes place away from your main website
- Voice Search SEO: Optimizing content for voice searches, which will be the majority by 2020.
What distinguishes organic SEO from SEO in general is that organic techniques are non-paid, and the process through which clicks are produced is unforced or natural. For example, writing a great blog post for your company website can help you rank on Google SERPs and generate leads organically. Conversely, crafting an appealing landing page for a paid search advertisement helps you generate paid leads non-organically. Understanding the distinction between organic and paid search marketing helps instruct your overall campaign and allows you to most effectively distribute resources.

How Organic SEO Helps Your HVAC Company
If properly implemented, organic SEO can improve your company’s visibility on Google and other search engines. Greater visibility encourages lead generation which is the lifeblood of your business. A perceived downside to organic optimization is its time consumption. Organic SEO is not something that can be implemented in one day and certainly not something that will have an immediate impact. SEO is a process and it takes time and patience to reach its fullest potential. For HVAC companies new to online marketing, supplementing lead generation with PPC campaigns helps minimize the frustration of waiting for SEO to work. We strongly believe that paid search campaigns should be launched in collaboration with SEO, rather than instead of it. Here are some of the ways that SEO will help your HVAC company:
- Collaboration: Convert PPC traffic into actual customers
- Cost Efficiency: Relatively inexpensive
- Credibility: Organic results are the most universally trusted
- Sustainability: Though it takes time to implement, it works over the long-term
Google is appropriately focused on user intent and voice search in an evolving internet landscape. The concept of a traditional keyword is slowly dying out, and companies should brace for the impact of this philosophical shift. Because SEO is a dependent operation, it is largely at the mercy of Google. If Google says “jump” search engine optimizers reply “how high?” For this reason, partnering with a company at the forefront of optimization trends empowers your digital presence to keep pace with Google. Everything from optimizing content for featured snippets to applying schema markup to service categories is included with our organic SEO services. HVAC contractors looking to generate more online leads in the 2nd half of 2018 and beyond, should absolutely invest in HVAC Webmasters’ internet marketing services.
