SEO FOR YOUR CHURCH

Whatever their reason might be, 9 out of 10 would-be visitors will get their first impression of your church based on your website. Now it’s your decision what you want to greet them with. A plain, old and outdated website that reeks of neglect because it’s hard to manage? Or a proven to work, up-to-date website that perfectly fits your church’s personality, makes the visitor feel at home and gets them excited to join your community?

That’s what we help you with. To make an outstanding first impression on your website visitors and turn them into your loyal church members. We achieve this with a website that’s completely tailored to your church and is easy to manage, without any technical knowledge. So you can update any staff information, add or remove pages, share pictures and audio/video of your sermons, create events and much more using only your mouse.

But we also think of your current members when creating church websites. With features like our photo galleries, event system and prayer walls, your members will continue to feel the sense of togetherness long after the sermon has ended. Your community will thrive like never before.

And if there’s anything special you’d want to see on your website, all you have to do is ask. We will get to work to develop exactly what you have in your mind. So, feel free to take advantage of our 15+ years of experience working with churches all over the world.

Your members may know about your church website, but in order to grow your church and include new visitors, you need to ask: can anyone else find my church website?

SEO, or search engine optimization, is the key to getting found online. The idea is simple: people search for “churches near me,” and if your church website is optimized, your church shows up in search results.

It can be hard to be feel well-versed in SEO for church websites. Did you know Google’s search algorithms change all the time? They don’t do it make us communicators confused! Rather, they do it continually improve user experience to make it easier for the searcher to find exactly what they’re looking for. That’s a good thing––we all get better search results every time. But that also means we always have to be right on top of our SEO game all the time!

We implement the following “SEO-friendly” practices to ensure Harvest Of Faith Media Solutions makes a positive impact your website so that you can get all the SEO benefits as possible.

Great SEO for Churches Includes:

  • Keyword research
  • Create clean, readable URLs, optimized for search engines
  • Give each page its own description
  • Create a custom meta description that fits the keyword
  • Optimize your site maps to make it easier for search engines to index your site
  • Give appropriate and custom 301 redirects to ensure well-ranked content is never compromised.
  • We keep up with the trends, so you don’t have to.

In addition to the expertise in SEO for church websites we offer, Ekklesia 360 gives you the option of opting-in to a variety of networks that help syndicate your content into relevant sites that may spread the word about products, messages, and ideas much faster than simple link development. This will help you spread the word about your products.

All sites are built on the same database, which provides the strictest privacy on one hand, but massive content syndication on the other.This goes a long way in advertising and marketing. As more sites link to each other in the networks, combined with strict XHTML and CSS development, the SEO kicks in and delivers a higher ranking in search results.

SEO for church websites is a powerful strategy. Your whole website should be optimized for search engines—do you feel like yours is? Do you know where to start? We can help you find your starting point and help you identify key opportunities for SEO.
