Hello. Jennifer Glidden here from Next Door SEO, and today we’re going to talk about web designers and SEO. Can your web designer do your SEO? That’s a great question, because there are a lot of web designers who offer an SEO friendly web site, and yes, they can do some basic elements of on page SEO, but there’s a lot more to an SEO campaign than just having your key words in a certain percentage or in a certain place. There’s a lot more to an SEO campaign, and it’s all about establishing the trust and relevance of your site with Google for the key words that you want to rank.

So there are on page factors, there are off page factors. Yes, web designers can take care of some of the on page factors, but it’s going to take a real SEO professional who does this day in and day out and stays on top of the gain every week how things are changing so that you can have your website best represented. Now, you can pay a little bit for that on page SEO, and yes it can be valuable, but you’re really going to get the results when you do a full campaign.

I hope this was helpful for you. Web designers are awesome at web design. They have graphical skills and things like that that are really amazing, but in terms of SEO, unless they’re staying on their SEO game every week, which they’re probably busy doing web design stuff every week, they’re just not going to be able to give you the value that’s going to get you to the top of the first page. Hope that answers your question. If you’re wondering where your site is ranking and why, how it measures up to the competition, I’d be happy to take a look at it. Please go to my site and click on Discovery Form, fill that out. Again you can go to, click and fill out the Discovery Form, and I will do a detailed video analysis for you personally. Thank you for watching and have a great day.
