Google is now making more than 500 to 600 tweaks to its algorithm every year, that’s more than once per day!
Why is SEO So Important in 2022?
The short answer is it's been a rough couple of years for SEO, between mobile-first indexing delays and over 4,500 changes to Google algorithm in 2020, including Wed Vitals and SSL security. SEO is forever changing, and businesses are getting blindsided by ongoing updates.
Over 3 billion searches are made every day on Google alone. So many businesses are competing for top spots in the search results that gaining and keeping visibility is vital. But it's through expert keyword research and SEO refinement, companies will earn the visibility they deserve to add to their bottom line effectively.
By partnering with an SEO provider, like Zero8, you have a team of experts working toward your digital success. So whatever your goal is—staying compliant, driving traffic, generating leads, maximizing sales, increasing brand awareness—we've got you covered.

What is SEO?
SEO stands for search engine optimization, a set of practices designed to improve the appearance and positioning of web pages in organic search results. Because organic search is the most prominent way for people to discover and access online content, a good SEO strategy is essential for improving the quality and quantity of traffic to your website.
What is SEO Compliance?
Being SEO compliant allows your pages to be indexed by search engines more effectively, increasing traffic and leads. Businesses now have to take new and unique approaches to win the never-ending race to the top of Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). The days of "set it and forget it" are long gone, and Zero8 uses hundreds of techniques to create a robust and ongoing SEO strategy for your business. We keep your online presence not only compliant but attracting more customers organically, all while contributing to the positive growth of the internet, which search engines like Google and Bing love.
What does an SEO provider do?
SEO providers must stay on top of this ever-changing set of rules. Keywords, Trends, and algorithm changes are just a few of the reasons why it's crucial to have an SEO provider who fully manages your online presence so you can handle your business. Never worry about losing customers to lousy SEO again. We use many advanced techniques to keep your online presence compliant and attracting more customers. Here is a breakdown of what we do.
WordPress Websites and your accompanying server need ongoing maintenance and updates to maintain proper security and SEO compliance. If your site is left unattended for too long without making the proper updates you open your business up to a number of serious security risks. Google also notices when your site is left unchanged for long periods of time and in turn can affect your SEO.

Why is this important for modern SEO?
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)
- LCP measures how well the page loads when Google users first click through. Ideally, you want your page load speed to be within 2.5s.
First Input Delay (FID)
- FID measures users’ page experience through interactivity. After a user clicks on a button or link, if the page starts processing within 100ms, it will be considered a responsive page.
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
- CLS measures how often the layout of a page shifts. A webpage with a stable layout is considered more user-centric as it offers a better user experience. A score of less than 0.1 is ideal.
How we improve these scores:
- Implement lazy loading
- Optimize and compress images (using modern standards such as *.webp)
- Provide proper dimensions for images and embeds
- Improve server response time
