When you take the time and money to create a website, you want it to be found in search engines like Google®, Bing® and Yahoo®. You also want to ensure that your website is appealing and functional with interesting content for search engine visitors and potential clients.

But what about a potential client that is searching for the type of product or service you offer? That’s where our services can help. Good SEO helps optimize your site so that you (not your competitor) will be found by people searching for what you have to offer.

Contact me at 604-477-1996

Let me show you how we can help grow your business.

What a lot of typical Kelowna SEO companies do is that they will build low quality and low cost links to your website from foreign countries or build low power and low authority links that won’t result in higher rankings for your website.

I have experienced how a number of our clients that have hired us are doubtful about SEO and whether it works. This is because they’ve had bad experiences with other search engine optimization companies whom they have paid a large sum of money to and received no results at all.

We’ve developed a system over a number of years that works over and over again. This system separates us from the numerous faceless Kelowna SEO companies online. We’ve spent the time to create our own huge set of websites with high authority. The sites that we own are of high quality that frequently publish content online which provides value to the internet. We decide precisely what links are pointed from these sites which provdes fantastic results for our clients using this powerful system that we have complete control of.

If you had a choice, would you prefer a website like or telling people that you are the leading provider in your local area or hiring a university student to give out business cards in your location? Using the first technique, you are establishing a continuing confidence and growing your online existence which becomes progressively essential as data shows that over 90% of people are now browsing online for services offered locally.

At Hurricane Web Design we utilize this strategy to bring your website the strength needed to be regarded as an authority. This is a major benefit that no other search engine optimization companies can deliver and it’s the reason why we control page 1 over and over again.

Business in Kelowna BC is booming. Individuals are spending cash and Google is making billions of dollars from online advertisers. These are people much like you desire to be visible to – consumers browsing online for services offered locally. We can deliver you the very same top quality visitors that Google makes a lot of money off, at a substantially lower price.

Are you still trying to choose which SEO Kelowna businesses to work with? Call us now and let’s talk more about your issues and questions.

The Uncomplicated Reality

Marketing used to be easy. Put an advertisement in the newspaper – you got phone calls and people came to you.

Now put yourself in the shoes of today’s consumer’s shoes for a moment – when was the last time you read the Yellow Pages or scanned a newspaper to find a business near you?

Do you believe that’s where potential clients are discovering you?

Fact – 97% of consumers utilize search engines to find local businesses (According to Google).

Therefore, if your business doesn’t appear on the first page of local search results, then you are likely losing hundreds of leads – every single day.

Somebody is constantly looking for your services or products with 1.8 billion searches made by people trying to find local businesses each and every month.

There’s no question that having a website for your business is a good start. But, if it doesn’t show up on the first page of organic search results, then you are losing possible sales to other local businesses ranking ahead of you .

As an owner of a business, can you afford to do nothing and let your competitors get all of the leads and steal money from you?

Our Search Engine Optimization services can bring you a higher return on investment than newspaper advertising

Newspaper Advertising is Not Delivering the Same Results as it Used To

Consider the difficulty and cost of running a newspaper advertisement in a series of cities or regions. For example, you’d like your advertisement to run in all of the Greater Kelowna, BC area. You’d likely have to create an advertisement for each city, have it sent to each newspaper and pay for it to run in each newspaper on a specific date or multiple edition dates.

After your advertisement has been running in newspapers, you have no idea how many people received the newspaper you were advertised in, read it, looked at the page your advertisement was on, how many people read your ad and phoned or emailed you after reading your advertisement.

Let’s compare that to our services. With SEO, pay-per-click advertising and website analytics (statistics), you can find out all of that and more. This will allow you to see exactly what techniques are working for you and where your visitors are coming from. You will find that the return on investment is much higher with internet marketing and SEO Kelowna.

The Three Main Factors for Good SEO


  • Keywords
  • Domain name
  • Site content including originality and length
  • Site structure (speed!)
  • Original images


  • Inbound – Other websites linking to you
  • Outboud – Links to other related websites from yours
  • Links from authority sites
  • Links from social media including likes and shares


  • Traffic
  • Updates
  • Bounce rate
  • Engaged visits from search (time on site)

Content + Links + Activity = Traffic

Good Search Engine Optimization Strategy

  • The most important part of SEO is content and keywords. Get quality, original content and structure it the way search engines want.
  • Try to focus on at least 10 keyword phrases for your campaign.
  • Longer tail keywords are better. For example:
    • “gizmo” is a short-tail keyword that would be difficult to target as there would be millions of sites focusing on that one word world-wide.
    • “green LED gizmo in Burnaby” is a long-tail keyword that would be easier to target and likely get you traffic from the area you serve (if you served Burnaby).
  • Comment on relevant sites to generate traffic from links back to your site.
  • Link building is very important. Expand your link building across multiple sources (press releases, article marketing, and social media).
  • If nobody links to you, you’ll be invisible.
  • Content plus links but no activity and Google will see you as a spammer.
  • Generate some human activity so Google knows you are real.
  • Implement a content updating schedule.
  • Have your posts immediately posted to Facebook and Twitter as this immediately gets you links back to your site.
  • When starting your campaign, it’s always a good idea to do pay-per-click internet marketing at the same time. You can even focus your internet marketing on just your local area if you choose.

It seems that every business in Kelowna and the Okanagan is capitalizing on their internet presence these days by buying a domain name and setting up a website to display their products and services online.  However, some sites rise to the top while some sink like rocks.

search engine optimization services okanaganWhat makes a website successful according to major search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo? Just like ‘real’ stores, items that are displayed properly are more appealing to visitors.

The more appealing your site is to both human and search-engine visitors, the better your site will be ranked in search results. Businesses that really want to maximize their online presence should hire Kelowna SEO specialists like Hurricane Web Design. We apply SEO techniques across your website and other platforms to ensure that when customers look for your product or service, they find you, not your competitor.

Good SEO or ‘white hat SEO’ is a collection of techniques tailored to your specific site, brand, and social media platforms that alert search engines to where you are on the internet and what you have to offer. SEO helps customers to find you via search engines when they go looking for products and services like yours.

What is Search Engine Optimization?

seo experts in kelowna bc

People look for products and services on the internet via search engines.  Optimizing your website for search engines to review and index ensures that the search engine ‘understands’ your site and is able to present your site to people looking through a search results page. SEO is a series of applied internet marketing strategies that improve the ability for search engines find and index your page, and then rank it more highly in the list of search results. In short, if your site is optimized properly, it will be better recognized and ranked by search engines and therefore be faster and easier for potential clients to find you and your offerings.

Affordable SEO That Benefits You to Help You Get More Customers

Consider the stacked costs and slow pace of running a print advertisement in a group of cities or regions. For example, creating a print ad campaign to run concurrently in Kelowna, Lake Country, Vernon, Peachland, Summerland, and Penticton as well as Vancouver involves market research, a somewhat customized ad submitted to each city’s newspaper and paid to run for a set period of time.  Once the campaign is complete, there is no way to examine the metrics of how effective your ad was in order to ‘fine tune’ your campaign.  How many people received one of the newspapers you advertised in, read it, looked at the page your advertisement was on, and then how many of those people read your ad and phoned or emailed you after reading your advertisement.  From those people how many became paying customers?

Compared to SEO and the analytics toolkit we use, we can find out all that information and more.  Analytics tools tell us valuable information both about the viewer’s interests, and how effective our content and placement were and all for a fraction of the cost of a print ad campaign.  Return on investment is much greater using search engine marketing and SEO practices.

While best practices are always evolving, there are a number of effective methods for search engine optimization Kelowna

  • Domain name
  • Tagging
  • Site content
  • Site structure (speed!)


  • Inbound
  • Outbound
  • Authority (.gov, .edu)


  • Traffic
  • Updates
  • Comments
  • RSS subscriptions (Google is measuring now)

Content + Links + Activity = Traffic to your site!

Good Strategy

top seo company kelowna bcSince search engines analyze words, the most important part of SEO is interesting information, topics and key phrases. Get quality, original content and structure it the way search engines want.

Long-tail key-phrases are the updated version of keywords.  For example, gone are the days when users asked search engines for results based on one word, for example, “SEO”. The single-word approach will return millions of hits, and barely any will be relevant. Instead, today’s internet users are likely to type or speak “best kelowna seo company” into the search bar and expect search results to reflect their query.  Use ten long-tail key phrases and talk about topics on your website.

Link building is very important. Build links across multiple sources (press releases, article marketing, and social media).

  • Comment on relevant sites to lead traffic from those sites to your via links you leave.
  • Generate some human activity so Google knows you are real and not a spammy ‘fake’-seeming site that brings no true value to visitors.
  • Update your content on a regular basis.
  • Post blog entries to Facebook and Twitter.

Doing so is an easy way to create links back to your site as mentioned above.

When starting out, you may want to try pay-per-click internet marketing on Google or even Facebook. Focusing your campaign on your local area will create parameters for an effective campaign.
