Benefits of partnering with a local Tempe SEO company
Tempe is the heart of the East Valley and has seen explosive growth in recent years, thanks in part to Arizona State University’s investments and its central location. We’ve seen this constant evolution first-hand and understand Tempe’s unique market and economy.
Long story short, we love Tempe and want to see the businesses that make up its essence succeed.
We work with clients on a global scale, but partnering with a local Tempe SEO agency brings a host of unique mutual benefits:
We know your market.
We understand your local challenges.
We know how to grow from a local to national and even global business.
We genuinely want to see our local small businesses succeed.
We know SEO inside and out.
Whether your company sees seasonality from ASU’s student population or a has a wider national focus, Markitors has experience with it all. Tempe has carved out its own place in Arizona’s broader economy, so why not partner with an agency that can apply that knowledge through SEO?

Here’s how Markitors delivers SEO services to businesses in Tempe
What is SEO? It’s taking steps to optimize your website so that when your target audience is ready to buy or has questions around a service or product, you’re the first one they find. Inbound marketing, such as SEO, works with the idea that customers who are more ready to convert will look for you. SEO is the missing piece that connects searchers with your business on search engines.
Why do we specialize in SEO? Many other digital marketing agencies cover a wider range of services like paid advertising and web design. However, we believe that in order to do SEO best, we need to go deeper, not wider. This specialized approach allows us to align all our departments with on overarching SEO strategy, rather than the fragmented approach many others take.
Target queries that both best describe your business and match with what customers are searching for
At the center of SEO is quality keyword research, which bridges the gap to your target clientele. Essentially, you align your messaging with the queries customers search. You may use particular phrases for your business that have become commonplace among staff members and on your marketing. However, the reality of what customers are looking for may be quite different. Let’s say an ASU merchandise store uses “ASU clothes” to describe what they sell. Yet a look at SEO reveals that customers are actually looking up “asu apparel”, followed by “asu fashion” and finally “asu clothes” in order of popularity.
Capture organic search traffic and inform
Once we’ve captured a list of target keywords, we’re ready to start creating unique SEO content around the queries. These may come in the form of service landing pages or blogs. While many SEO agencies around Tempe and the country use remote freelance writers to fulfill content writing needs, Markitors employs a completely in-house team of authors. This intentional arrangement helps us better align content with goals, oversee quality, and understand client differentiators.
Boost prominence in your industry and brand recognition
We have pioneered Markitors’ exclusive Digital PR services, which are the first of their kind for other Scottsdale and Tempe SEO agencies. This SEO service leverages traditional public relations building online with the combined benefit of brand mentions and external backlinks, all of which boost website visibility. Clients working with Markitors contribute monthly to feature articles and blogs published online through our exclusive network of partners. Because many of our PR relationships are with Arizona organizations, Tempe small businesses gain exposure at a local level.
Attract local customers from Tempe and across the Valley
As a local agency serving businesses through SEO in Tempe and the wider Phoenix community, we know that local matters. Local SEO works to improve your web presence on Google Maps, local results, and other search engines so that when customers in Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, and beyond search “near me”, they can find you.
Nearly three in four consumers who conduct a search for a local service later visit a store within five miles. And search queries containing words like “near me” have skyrocketed in usage by more than 900% in over two years. This means that without local SEO, customers who can’t find you through a simple search online will simply go with a competitor.
Audit and maintain site speed, mobile usability, and other back-end communication with search engines
Technical SEO runs behind-the-scenes to make sure your website is communicating correctly with Google and other search engines. From mobile-first indexing to status codes and robots.txt, there are a ton of details running in the background. When tech SEO is ignored, some pages may not show up in search results, keyword position rankings may fall, or your site can face limited mobile functionalities.
Markitors’ tech SEO services run regular audits and checks to catch any errors before they negatively impact your search traffic. You can rest assured knowing all your SEO bases are covered.
I can’t recommend Markitors highly enough from both a speed and investment angle. Their SEO services are very effective in growing your brand online.
