SEO for HR, Payroll, and Recruiting Services

Reach new clients faster

Despite recent years of adversity, small business dreams are alive and well with many small business operators identifying and thriving within pockets of opportunity. These businesses usually don’t hit the ground running with their own HR departments. And many need help when it comes to essential growth services like payroll and hiring. If you specialize in providing human resource services, recruiting advice, or payroll software, then your business thrives when you can connect meaningfully with other businesses. SEO, or search engine optimization, can help you do just that.

Meet Them Where They Are

Nearly all consumer research starts with search. Make sure your business isn’t missing the mark in search results.

In your field, you probably have good sense for people, sales, and more, but maybe you don’t know the difference between HTML and XML. That’s where we come in.

When you rank higher for the right people, you are being seen by the potential customers who are most looking for services like yours. Warmer leads convert better.

Make stronger first impressions online

If you’re a people person, you probably thrive at meet-and-greets. Maybe you know how to ask the right questions and provide thorough answers about your services on the fly. But online, you could be missing some of that human touch. A clunky first impression is killer in a competitive marketplace. And not just with users…the algorithms of search engines that scan website data and compile search results don’t like a clunky impression either. If your frontend (the content and design of your website) or backend (the lines of code and metadata) aren’t dressed for success, then it’s hurting your website in the eyes of potential customers and in the ranking results of search engines.

At Outpace, we push to optimize your website for both sides of the coin, human viewers and algorithms. Luckily, they both appreciate many of the same things. Clear and efficient site design with better navigation, social proof through meaningful reviews and backlinks (links to your website from other places online), and laser-focused content with keywords your audience is already searching will all help you rank higher and engage customers more powerfully. And then, when your business is more easily discoverable online to new audiences, and those audiences are more engaged, you can start converting more sales. So yes, while poorly formed SEO hurts you, quality SEO can be one of the best investments in your business.

HR, Payroll & Recruiting SEO FAQ

Understanding how SEO helps you help others

What is the value of an “organic” search result?

Unlike the customers you directly invite to your site or the audiences that you drive through direct advertising, organic search results show you to anyone, anywhere who is searching online adjacent to your business. If someone is looking for payroll software, and they start by googling, “best small business payroll software,” you should show up in that list of results. If they google, “best recruiters in Chicago,” and that’s you, you should be on the front page of search results. These results function like word-of-mouth recommendations. They are more credible to searchers because they implicitly trust search engines. Organic search is the first link in the chain.

How do search results lead to sales?

If potential customers are finding you, but you’re still losing them without converting, they won’t be finding you for long. Over time, search engines penalize websites with low engagement and high bounce rates. The bounce rate is the percentage of users who “bounce” off of your website when confronted with confusing pathways or subpar content. By considering SEO as a fundamental part of your website’s design, we can simplify navigation, page flows, and content structures to deliver the key messages of your products and services in a way that adds up to more user trust. And when users trust and engage with you, sealing the deal is easy.

I’ve never worked with an SEO firm – what should I expect?

Don’t worry. You don’t need to become a programming expert just to reap the benefits of SEO. Be wary of firms who promise instant gratification, and gravitate towards firms who can present thoughtful long-term strategies. At Outpace, each strategy is custom. Because your business has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, we develop unique plans that are one of one. We maximize your strengths through careful keyword research, and we minimize your weakness by reviewing all of our analytic tools to see where bottlenecks of traffic are abandoning your website. From there we can interpret data and make more insightful adjustments. We believe in an environment of testing and feedback. And like a good HR department, we know that clear communication is everything. So you can lean on us from consultation to regular reporting and interpretation of results.
