What is Technical
Search Engine Optimization?

SEO started as a purely technical discipline, before on-page content and keywords became the focus for performing in search. Today, winning top search rankings requires web developers with search marketing expertise who can improve your page speeds and user experience while also helping search engines correctly interpret, index, and rank your content. Technical SEO elevates your site in organic search rankings and increases your brand’s awareness and organic reach through Featured Snippets and voice searches.

It’s Also Our Sweet Spot

Optimizing Page Performance

By optimizing your website’s user experience through design, accessibility, faster page speeds, descriptive metadata and more, DBS helps your site engage and retain visitors, generate more leads, and improve bounce rates.

Mobile web traffic

  • Faster Pages Get Higher Search Rankings
    Google announced that page speed will be an important search ranking factor based on mobile performance.
  • Implementing a Mobile-First Strategy
    Google now defaults to crawling and indexing websites based on their mobile experience rather than desktop.
  • Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)
    Google’s AMP project promotes a consistent user experience for web-based content across all devices and screen sizes.
  • Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
    PWAs offer performance advantages over traditional websites or native mobile apps, including the ability to function offline.
  • Web Accessibility
    Accessible websites perform better in search engines–and we’ve been building ADA compliant websites since 2000.
  • Schema Markup
    At the code level, implementing structured data known as schema markup is vital for pages to achieve higher search rankings.

The importance of schema

The Importance of Schema Markup

Without structured data called “schema markup” added to your website, search engines are less likely to rank your pages high enough to earn Featured Snippets or win traffic from voice searches.

Winning Featured Search Results

Search engine results pages (SERPs) used to be a simple list of website links—but today’s SERPs include more prominent callouts and images called Featured Snippets. That’s why our technical SEO positions your site to win these valuable search elements:

Shopping snippet

Shopping Snippets

Customers are more likely to browse your products and services when they are featured in Shopping Snippet carousels that are placed above or within competing search results.

Local packs example

Local Search Snippets

Whether searching from a desktop or mobile device, Google increasingly factors in a user’s physical location when it returns search results. That makes winning Local Pack snippets a priority for attracting local search traffic.

Video snippet example

Video and Image Snippets

Capture more organic search traffic and attract web visitors when your site’s multimedia is elevated into Image and Video snippets.

Voice search results example

“People Also Ask” Snippets

When your content delivers just the right answer to common search queries, Google will lead searchers to your site to avoid forcing them into multiple searches.

Essential for Voice Search Performance

As the popularity and usage of voice search keeps growing, implementing technical SEO is key to winning question-based voice searches submitted through smart speakers and smartphone assistants.

  • Search engines will better understand the content on your website, making it more likely they will select your content to answer voice search queries.
  • Since page speed is a search ranking factor, your website’s voice SEO improves even more as we technically optimize your pages to make them load faster.
  • Schema markup significantly improves your site’s chances of winning Featured Snippets that are used for voice search results.

60% of smartphone owners (that's 2.1 billion people) have used voice search.
