How To Get Your HR Business To Show Up On Google (SEO for HR Companies)

Understanding HR Consulting & HR Software SEO

Let’s look at how to get your HR business to show up on Google via SEO – Search Engine Optimization.

SEO for independent HR consulting firms and HR Tech companies involves optimizing their online presence to rank higher in search engine results. This matters because higher visibility in search results can lead to more business opportunities.

We’ll focus more on HR consulting firms but this guide also applies to HR software companies as well as other businesses within the broad HR field such as D&I, recruitment, L&D, and so on.

How Does SEO Work for HR Consulting & HR Software Businesses?

The process involves understanding how search engines categorize and rank professional services like HR consulting. Instead of optimizing for product-based keywords, the focus is on industry-specific terms, services offered, and local SEO if the firm caters to a specific geographical area.

Key Areas of SEO for HR Consulting Firms & HR Software Companies

  1. On-Page SEO: This includes optimizing the website’s content, structure, and HTML source code. For HR firms, this could involve highlighting services like employee training, talent acquisition, compliance management, etc.
  2. Off-Page SEO: It’s about building the firm’s reputation and authority through backlinks, social media marketing, and online reviews. Participation in HR forums and publishing articles on HR trends can enhance credibility.
  3. Technical SEO: Ensures the website is well-structured, fast-loading, and easy to navigate, making it accessible to search engines and users alike.
