What is SaaS SEO?

SaaS SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the process of optimizing your software-as-a-service website to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs) and attract more organic traffic (people who found you without being influenced by ads).

SaaS SEO  includes: Technical SEO, content creation, and link building, all aimed at increasing visibility and driving potential customers to your site. Here is how to start with SEO:

  • SEO audit: Understand where you stand. Identify what’s working and areas for improvement ( code errors, time load speed, 404 pages, structured data, heading issues,etc)
  • Competitor analysis: Analyze your competitors’ SEO strategies to identify opportunities and tactics they might have overlooked.
  • Goals: Know what you want to achieve with your SaaS SEO efforts, whether it’s increasing sign-ups, building authority,etc.
  • Keyword research: Identify keywords that potential customers might use when searching for solutions your SaaS offers. Focus on both high-volume keywords and long-tail phrases and divide them by intent and funnel stage. Google Keyword Planner, SEMrush, and Ahrefs are great tools for this.
  • Content creation: Plan your content in advance to ensure a steady flow of SEO-friendly articles and pages. Write high-quality, informative content that addresses your audience’s pain points, questions, and needs. This can vary from blog posts, tutorials, case studies, and landing pages. 
  • On-Page SEO: Optimize your content and web pages with relevant keywords, meta titles, descriptions, ALT texts and image compressions. Ensure your website structure is clear and logical for usability and crawlability.
  • Technical SEO: Ensure your website is technically sound, with fast loading speeds, mobile optimization, a secure connection (HTTPS), and a well-structured sitemap. Tools like Google’s PageSpeed Insights can help you review your site’s performance.
  • Backlink building: Earn high-quality backlinks from reputable sites in your industry to boost your domain authority and rankings. Guest blogging, collaborations, and partner networks can help.
  • Measure and optimize: Use analytics to track your SEO performance. Tools like Google Analytics and Search Console can provide insights into traffic, rankings, and user behavior, allowing you to optimize your strategy based on performance.

Keep in mind that, unlike paid advertising, SEO is a long-term strategy. It might take months to see significant results.

 Planning and putting in motion a SaaS SEO strategy is the work of multiple team members.

This team should include an SEO specialist to lead the strategy and oversee its implementation, ensuring that all SEO efforts align with the company’s goals. Then, a content creator produces SEO-friendly content according to the content plan made by a content marketer. 

 A Web developer usually handles the technical aspects of SEO, including website optimizations that enhance site performance and user experience.  The creative part is left to the designer, who is in charge of creating visually engaging content and interfaces, further improving user experience and engagement. 

Lastly, an analyst is crucial for tracking the strategy’s performance, analyzing data, and providing data reports  & insights that inform strategy adjustments and optimizations.
