When you collaborate with the Widoczni agency, you pay for the highest quality of service and actions that bring measurable results. See why it's worth working with us!

1
We Focus On Acquiring Inquiries and Sales

Website positioning can and should be reported at every stage of the process.

At the beginning, you will find out what optimization actions have been carried out. Over time, the SEO report will show increases in the site's visibility for selected phrases. Finally, you will learn that thanks to high positions on Google, your site gets more and more visits.

Many agencies stop here, treating positions and traffic as the goal of website positioning. But not us! Our team focuses on professional website positioning, bringing results in terms of sales. Therefore, when working with us, you will measure the effectiveness of SEO through the prism of your profits.

2
We Focus On Direct Contact With an SEO Specialist

Don't know who is actually working on your site? Not when you work with the Widoczni agency!

After starting cooperation, you will be informed which specialists are involved in individual actions on your site. Consequently, you will meet your SEO specialist and contact them directly. It facilitates cooperation and decision-making regarding your site.

You will also meet your guardian, who oversees the course and quality of cooperation, your content marketing specialist, and other people involved in the project.

3
We Have Been in the Industry Since 1999

Website optimization is a dynamic industry where you must always keep your finger on the pulse. However, it also has some well-established foundations.

The primary advantage of Widoczni over other agencies that are still looking for their method of cooperating with the client is that we have thorough knowledge and experience with hundreds of companies from various industries. We know the SEO industry inside out; the time for testing and taking the first steps is long behind us.

What has our presence in this industry since 1999 taught us? The most important thing is diligent work and thoughtful response to news or changes.

We constantly expand our competencies, participate in industry conferences, and exchange experiences with leading SEO experts worldwide. We operate according to the best SEO practices, so you can be sure this will translate into the effects of SEO your site.

4
We Apply Transparent Cooperation Principles Without a Long-Term Contract

Our clients are with us because they want to be, not because they have to be. Regularly achieved results for our clients' sites are the best motivation for long-term cooperation.

In our portfolio, we have clients who have been with us almost since the agency's inception, but not because we keep them with complicated contracts without the possibility of termination. Our successful cooperation is based on the efficiency of our work, good relations, and the highest quality of service.

Sometimes, clients leave, searching for a new agency with different ideas for their site. However, they often return because it is difficult to find an agency operating in such a transparent cooperation model with such efficiency and approach to the customer.

5
Transparency in Reporting the Results of Website Positioning and Optimization

Our clients do not feel lost when they receive reports from us. We take great care to deliver transparent documentation containing all the necessary information to assess the quality of our actions.

Above all, our reports are understandable and enriched with interpretation and conclusions.

You don't have to wonder whether the indicators included in the report are at a favorable level. From the conclusions, you find out what we have done, how it translates into your site's effectiveness, and what our further plan of action is.

We use only the best tools: Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Senuto, Ahrefs, and Surfer. Moreover, our clients regularly have the opportunity to participate in training on the basics of analytics, so they understand the reports sent even better.

We report actions cyclically. This way, you never have to ask for a report of actions.

Additionally, your guardian will regularly contact you to examine the effects of SEO, which cannot be measured in tools, such as sales in a stationary store or the number of telephone inquiries.

6
Conversion Optimization as an Element of Website Positioning

SEO does not end for us when your site achieves high positions. Reaching the top of SERPs for the most important phrases is a great success, but it still does not guarantee sales. The traffic obtained in this way needs to be converted into buying customers.

For this purpose, we are also working on your site's user experience. We pave the way for your site visitors to make a conversion and facilitate the decision to purchase or make an inquiry. It is a complex process called conversion rate optimization. We implement this service as part of website SEO for traffic obtained from Google.

If you think about implementing conversion optimization for your site in a broader scope, you can use the additional CRO service, which combines UX, analytics, and conversion optimization.

7
A Dedicated Team of Experts Awaits You

As the only ones on the market, we delegate an entire team of experts for each company SEO project: SEO Specialist, Webmaster, Link Profile Building Specialist, Content Marketing Specialist, and Conversion Optimization Specialist.

Efficient communication between the team of experts and your company wouldn't be possible without a dedicated Customer Service Specialist who will oversee the course of the SEO campaign. They will provide you with the necessary knowledge about the conducted activities, send reports, analyze the campaign's impact on your business, and, together with you, determine further goals for your website.

WHAT DOES WEBSITE POSITIONING INCLUDE?

What Actions Does Website Positioning Include?

Website positioning includes a range of different actions, which can be grouped into on-site positioning, off-site positioning, and technical SEO. What do these pillars of website positioning and optimization involve?

What is on-site website positioning?
Down arrow

On-site website positioning focuses on optimization within the website. Alongside off-site positioning and technical optimization, it is a critical component of the SEO strategy. On-site actions concern both content visible to users and site code optimization. These include the following:

  • Expanding site content
  • Enriching content with keywords and phrases
  • Optimizing meta titles
  • Internal linking (between subpages)
  • Optimizing H1, H2, H3 headers, etc
  • Optimizing the site structure and many others.

The goal of on-site optimization is to improve the site's quality for users and help Google bots understand the site's intentions, topics, and value.

By performing on-page SEO, we want to ensure that Google understands the connection between the user's search query and your site's content. As a result, your site will appear in the search results.

However, on-site optimization is not focused solely on Google bots. On the contrary, it uses the traffic obtained from Google to convince users they have found the right site and will achieve their goal on it.

A significant area of on-site SEO is content marketing, which provides users with high-quality, unique, and helpful content, e.g., product descriptions, service descriptions, guides, blog articles, reviews, and comparisons. These contents should be enriched with keywords and presented clearly and transparently.

What is off-site website positioning?
Down arrow

Off-site positioning (also known as off-page SEO) refers to optimization for website positioning carried out outside your website.

Although it is primarily associated with link building, it is a much broader concept, and its goals extend beyond acquiring links to the site.

Off-site SEO aims to improve the quality of the site in Google's evaluation, particularly in areas called EAT (Expertise, Authority, Trustworthiness).

Efforts in off-site positioning aim to improve the site's perception by users and to convince Google bots the site's content is trustworthy, reliable, and professional. This can be achieved by mentions of the site on reputable portals, guest articles, and even, according to some, mentions of the company or shares in social media.

Still, off-site positioning is related to links. It's worth focusing on diversifying the profile of incoming links and investing not only in link building but also in influencer marketing, content marketing, and creative link acquisition strategies.

We can distinguish several types of links:

  • Naturally acquired links — this type of link is obtained thanks to user activity, who share the link to the site on forums, in comments, or on their websites.
  • Manual link acquisition — these links are acquired through collaborations, article exchanges, or sending requests to add links to sites where there is already an unclickable mention of the company.
  • Manually added links — these links are frequently present in business directories, company lists, classified ad portals, and other similar places.

Off-page optimization is one of the pillars of website positioning and should be part of the SEO strategy. A link profile that includes valuable links, growing steadily but regularly, has a significant impact on website positioning in Google.

What is technical optimization in website positioning?
Down arrow

Technical optimization can be considered a part of on-site SEO, as actions are carried out within the site. Nevertheless, it is a specific action aimed at optimizing the site structure, facilitating robot visits to individual subpages, and speeding up indexing.

Technical optimization also deals with aspects such as speeding up the site's loading time, reducing technical duplication, and fixing errors that prevent correct indexing of the site.

Technical optimization actions include:

  • Optimizing the site's loading speed
  • Optimizing and ensuring the correctness of the Robots.txt file
  • Optimizing meta robots tags
  • Eliminating links leading to 404 error pages
  • Eliminating technical duplication
  • Implementing HTTPS
  • Implementing structured data (Schema.org)
  • Implementing a sitemap and adding it to the Google Search Console
  • Adapting the site to mobile devices
WHAT DO SEO RESULTS DEPEND ON?

What Influences Website Positioning? Ranking Factors.


The position of a site in search results is influenced by ranking factors, i.e., factors that Google considers when evaluating a website. These are not guidelines explicitly defined by Google but actions derived from the experiences of SEO specialists.

Over time, as Google's algorithm changes, the ranking factors also change. That's why it's vital to conduct website positioning and optimization regularly.

Some actions may become ineffective or even lead to Google imposing a penalty on the site. None of these actions are a guaranteed recipe for success and should be treated as a guideline, not a rule.

We can divide ranking factors into:

  • On-page — actions within the website
  • Off-page — actions outside the site, including link building
  • Usability/functionality — actions aimed at improving user comfort on the site

Off-page factors:

  • Number of domains from which the links originate
  • Number of pages from which the links originate

  • Authority of the linking domain

  • Age of the domain from which the links originate
  • Domain age
  • Keyword in the domain name, preferably as the first word in the domain name

  • Placement of the link in the text
  • Placement of the link on the page
  • Thematic relevance to the content available on the linking domain
  • Thematic relevance to the content of the site from which the link originates
  • Keyword in the form of your brand/site name in the title of the linking page

  • Volume of content from which the link originates
  • Quality of content from which the link originates
  • Site-wide links, available from every subpage
  • Public domain information in the WhoIs system

On-page factors:

  • Keyword in the title
  • Keyword as the first word in the title
  • Keyword in the description
  • Keyword in the H1 header
  • Volume of content on the page
  • Active table of contents on the page

The question of how long one has to wait for the first results of website positioning in search engines is one of the most common questions from clients.

There is no single answer to how long website positioning takes. It is influenced by many factors — not only the knowledge and work of the SEO specialist but also competition and changes in the Google algorithm, as well as the condition and quality of your site.

WHAT IS THE PRICE OF POSITIONING?

How Much Does Website Positioning Cost?

Positioning — price offers from experts

The campaigns we run for effective website positioning are neither expensive nor cheap. Primarily, they are effective.

Establishing one price for website positioning is impossible, as it depends on many factors and must be determined individually after analyzing the site and your company's needs. Therefore, the cost of positioning will vary but will always be tailored to your capabilities.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions — Website Positioning FAQ

If you're wondering what website positioning is, how it works, and what results it brings, we're rushing with the answer! Check out the most frequently asked questions below — Website Positioning FAQ

What is SEO?
Down arrow

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and means optimizing a website for search engines. This process involves technical actions, as well as actions within and outside the site. The primary goal is to increase the site's value in the search engine algorithm's eyes.

SEO can be performed for different search engines, but in most cases, website positioning activities mainly focus on the requirements and standards of the Google search engine.

What are the most common mistakes in SEO/website positioning?
Down arrow

Website positioning is one of the most effective ways to promote your brand. Yet, to achieve satisfying results, it's important to avoid positioning mistakes. What should you remember when deciding to engage in it?

Do not make the mistake of discontinuing actions after 2-3 months. Success in website positioning takes time, but the results are long-lasting and effective.

The first noticeable effects are increased visibility and traffic on the site. You can expect them after a few months of cooperation with an SEO specialist. An increase in revenue usually occurs after about 1.5 years.

Don't want to waste money? Opt for a long-term strategy and systematic optimization of the site.

So, you've started positioning your brand's website. What next?

Don't forget about regular analysis of the results. This is a fairly common mistake, but it's still dangerous.

This stage will allow you to determine whether SEO actions are effective, identify errors, and plan changes. SEO specialists use tools such as Google Analytics and Google Search Console.

If you have decided to cooperate and need more knowledge in this area, do not worry. SEO specialists will prepare a report with the most critical information and discuss it with you.

These are just basic mistakes in website positioning; you may also encounter errors in the technical positioning stage or in building a link profile.

Which is better, SEO or PPC?
Down arrow

Both activities aim to promote the company in Google.

As a result of SEO, the site appears in free search results — usually in the form of a classic text result, but also in video and graphic form, and on the so-called position zero, in featured snippets.

As a result of PPC, the company's advertisement will appear at the top of Google search results. Nonetheless, depending on the type of campaign, it may also be visible as an advertisement on popular portals, in applications, and on YouTube in text or graphic form.

Both activities allow for effective customer acquisition. Positioning requires long-term cooperation, and it takes several to several months to see the effects. The advantage of this collaboration is the possibility of increasing sales while maintaining a constant budget.

In PPC, the company will appear in Google even on the same day the Google Ads account is funded and the campaign appropriately configured. However, growing the campaign's effectiveness usually also requires increasing the budget.

Initially, it's good to combine both activities. Google Ads will allow you to immediately reach potential customers and fill the gap, which is a natural effect of waiting for the results of positioning. Running both PPC and SEO campaigns at the same time also increases the chances of acquiring sales.

Can you do website positioning yourself?
Down arrow

Are you wondering how to do website positioning without the help of experts? It is certainly more time-consuming and a more significant challenge than, for example, managing a Facebook profile on your own.

If you lack experience in this area and don't know how to position a site based on current Google algorithms, it's worth paying for web positioning. Entrusting your campaign to specialists with the knowledge and skills to implement the technical aspects of positioning and optimizing the site on Google is a wise decision.

How to position a website?

Are you active online and want to try your hand at positioning websites? It is a complex process consisting of several separate stages.

You can decide to carry out SEO activities yourself, but specialized knowledge and supporting tools, often paid, are necessary. Therefore, it's worth collaborating with a marketing agency if you're interested in learning how to position a site well.

Specialists in website positioning divide the activities into:

  • Preliminary activities — conducting an SEO audit, competition analysis, and creating an SEO strategy
  • Technical optimization — optimization of elements such as robots.txt file, SSL certificate, website speed, mobile responsiveness, content duplication, broken or damaged links
  • On-site optimization — activities on the site, mainly content-related
  • Off-site optimization — building a link profile
  • Analytics — analysis of activities and results

Depending on the type of website positioning on the internet, the process may include additional activities or stages.

What is website positioning? Self-conducted on-site optimization

How do you position a website? Can you do it yourself?

Some activities can be done on your own, but others require knowledge, experience, and access to SEO tools. Additionally, this process calls for a lot of time and attention.

Optimization and positioning consist of several stages, one of which is on-site activities, i.e., all changes made within the site. What stages does on-site optimization include?

  • Content optimization
  • Optimization of outgoing and internal links
  • Technical optimization
  • URL optimization
  • Metadata optimization
  • Schema code optimization
  • User Experience optimization

On-site optimization and positioning of websites is a complex process that can be divided into one-time and cyclical activities.

What does website positioning involve? It includes systematic updating of knowledge about trends and the latest Google solutions.

Consider whether saving some money by not working with an agency and spending a lot of your own time to do it is worth it.
