SEO for Small Businesses in Idaho

Deciding to have a website for your business is essential to keeping up with today’s competition. Let’s face it, not many people use the Yellow Pages anymore but instead jump online to find the service they need. Having a website built is only the 1st step of a 2-step process in order to effectively generate new leads online. The 2nd step after your website is developed is getting your website optimized properly by a Boise SEO team so that search engines can successfully find you, as well as get your site to the 1st page on Google.

Although important to have, an improperly optimized website can almost be as ineffective as not having one at all. Many times, when we launch a new website for our client, they will see optimal results with the Foundational SEO package we offer with every new website development, specifically if their existing website wasn’t optimized properly, or if at all.

For those that are competing in a much more cut-throat market, our advanced SEO package can prove to drive results, and more importantly, higher rankings.

    Our SEO offers the most comprehensive and constant tasks to help steadily increase your SEO rankings.

    As a Boise SEO company, Thrive Web Designs understands that no two businesses are 100% alike, therefore the way we optimize one business might slightly differ from another based a few items including:

    • The industry that the business competes in and how many other competitors are competing for the same position on Google.
    • How old the website’s domain name is (we call this domain authority)
    • How well the current website was developed, and how accessible the code is on the website
    • Is the website on a sufficient server with good speed & security?

    SEO-First Websites

    Regardless if you are hiring Thrive for just a new website or ongoing SEO, search engine optimization is at the core of every website we build. We understand that 99% of all businesses rely on their website to bring in new leads and potential business. This is achieved by a process in which we work to make your site more relevant on searches, as well as a long list of on-site and off-site tweaks and additions.


    Serving Clients with Trust and Integrity Since 2010.

    Josh and Alex and the entire team at Thrive Web Designs knocked our new site design completely out of the park! We absolutely love the new site. It's functional, meets all our requests and our entire team LOVES it. We're so happy we're moving immediately to redesign our other site with them. Communication is so important on these types of projects as there is always a lot of back and forth. We were never waiting long for a response, design was constantly being pushed forward and when there were needed pauses, it was always communicated. Thrive never just went MIA on us, which was so nice. I wouldn't hesitate to spend your hard earned budget with Thrive Web Designs. You'll love working with them!

    I highly recommend Thrive Web Designs. Josh and Alex were great to work with. They understood what we were looking for with our redesign and made it even better than what we had in mind. The process was fast and easy and the customer service is outstanding.

    I do not give 5 starts to anyone or anything, but this is an easily justified exception. The process has been smooth, the response to all communication has been swift, and each solution to a request or desire has been considered and professional. After previous experiences with "Web Builders" I was reluctant to trust anyone, but those concerns were unfounded with Thrive. We are super pleased with the site, and super pleased with the process. They will be the only team that touches our site. We look forward to working with them in the future!

    I have worked with Josh and the team at Thrive for many years now as an independent contract graphic designer, and am absolutely amazed at the high level of customer service they give their clients. Making clients happy is their #1 goal, and as you can see by the many 5 star reviews, they do a great job at it! Hire Thrive today: they'll take care of you!

    Thrive Web Designs did a fantastic and professional job on my website. They created EXACTLY what I asked for and even when some of my requests proved difficult, they found ways to make it happen. It is so rare anymore to get the exact product you envisioned (but couldn't create yourself). I couldn't be happier that I chose Thrive!

    Work With A Local Boise SEO and Web Design Team

    When working with the team at Thrive Web Designs, rest-assured knowing that you’re working with a Boise-based company. We are located in downtown Boise, Idaho and have been proudly serving clients since 2010. We are easily accessible by in-person meetings, Zoom & phone calls, and we’ll gladly setup a meeting to discuss your goals.

    Website Speed Optimization

    Google is big on speed, and let’s face it, so are your potential customers. Nobody wants a website that loads slow, and not only does this detract from customers going through your sales funnel, but this also hurts your SEO, as Google views website speed as a huge ranking metric.

    Keep is Safe, Keep it Secure (https)

    Along with speed, comes security. Having an SSL certificate installed on your website is not only required nowadays, this is another ranking metric that Google uses when ranking your site in the SERPS. (search engine ranking position). Thrive can help make existing websites safe by installing an SSL certificate and making sure each page properly shows the padlock in the search bar.

    Content is Still King

    When it comes to content, the recipe is simple. Quality AND Quantity will yield results. You cannot have one without the other, and our team understands the nuances of making a website rank well based on content. Luckily, Thrive offers content marketing services so that clients don’t have to worry about writing their own content. We offer these services for new and existing websites, as well as writing for SEO and ongoing blog posts too.

    Keywords Still Matter, Good Backlinks Do Too

    Our job is to ensure that all pages on a website has the proper amount of content, relevant to the search term, as well as the keywords in the proper placements. You’d be surprised to find that not only is this still an important metric that Google uses for ranking, but how detrimental not having them and what that will do to crush your SEO. We’ve seen it time and time again with websites developed with no SEO in mind. Same goes for backlinks, however the goal is not to throw 10,000 backlinks at your site. The name of the game is relevancy and authenticity.

    Proper SEO takes time and Patience (Don’t fall for the quick fix – “all in one” packages)

    When done right, investing in SEO will without a doubt, provide a huge return of investment. However, it’s important to note that the process takes time to work, and your rankings will not shift to page 1 overnight. It’s our goal as a Boise SEO and website development company to educate our clients on the process, so that they can know what to realistically expect, at every milestone. Many of our clients see a page 1 ranking between 9-12 months after going live.

    It Goes Beyond Your Website

    Google’s algorithm is constantly changing, improving and shifting towards better usability for the viewer. Therefore, a large part of SEO in the modern age is not only everything done on your website, but external from your website as well. You might have heard the term “digital footprint,” which refers to your business online starting with your website, to your Google my business (GMB) page, to every other listing site. These all matter, as they can all shift your SEO if done right, or wrong. You can rely on Thrive to help make sure your business is fully optimized on all fronts.
