Gilmedia’s SEO Toronto practices result in natural, organic growth that will translate into more quality leads.
We’re here to help you outrank your competition the smart way.


When it comes to SEO, this is a question we often encounter. And our answer is always the same: organic search results for pages on websites that are improved and reinforced with the best SEO practices get 20x more traffic opportunities than paid search on mobile and desktop. On top of that, 51% of all website traffic comes from organic searches. And finally, the top position in an organic search receives 32.5% traffic share, second position gets 17.6%, and third position gets 11.4%. This brings up the question we’ll ask business owners who ask us why they should invest in SEO: why wouldn’t you invest to get to that #1 spot in relevant search queries?

The SEO rules are simple: the better your positions, the more leads you’ll get, and results will never happen overnight. There are many SEO agencies that promise just that (quick results and top rankings right off the bat). However, SEO is a long-term process that involves a lot of research, decision making, patience and time. The quick results promised by such agencies are often based on shady practices that, even if they work initially, can bury your ranking for good. Here at Gilmedia, we follow best practices to set you up for long-term success.

The Gilmedia SEO Process

From initial contact to full-on audits and keyword analysis, Gilmedia follows carefully outlined SEO steps to ensure you get valuable traffic, leads and sales.

The Initial Chat

We want to know everything about your business. Our SEO veterans are not only good listeners, but they also know how to extract the very essence of your business and inject it into SEO.

The “Aha!” Moment

It’s about getting you the right traffic that will generate leads and boost sales. Once we’ve captured your core message, we can give your target audience the answers they’ve been looking for.

Keyword analysis

We’re talking sessions upon sessions in order to find the right direction and take action. This is where we really sink our teeth into audits and keyword analysis like they were a nice big juicy sandwich. Yum!


Okay, so we finished our analysis, now it’s time to get right down to business. Our content and SEO specialists are now ready to execute our elaborate action plan and get you that valuable traffic.

We know how users think, and what it takes to get them to become more than just a click on your website. We help you turn website visitors into customers.

Local SEO Toronto Done Right

It would be nonsense to expect your business to be among the top search results everywhere in the world. Simply put, if you’re a local business, then ranking high in a different area won’t bring you any useful results. That’s why we have local SEO. At Gilmedia, we specialize in increasing your online visibility for searches in the local area that you operate in. We do this by providing your business with custom solutions that will keep you visible on the local map.

That’s how we ensure that you get better quality leads and land more sales. We never take the cookie cutter approach, because we know that practices that work for other businesses, might not work for you. By implementing a custom SEO strategy, we’ll help you outsmart and outrank your competition.

How We Do It

In order to get effective results from your website and get quality leads, you need to have a proper strategy that works for you. As a trusted SEO Toronto agency, we keep our clients in the loop throughout the entire process, which can be broken down into:

  • Research, Planning and Analysis – From competitive research and keyword research to website audits and industry knowledge, we aim to get as much information as possible before we come up with a custom SEO strategy for your business.
  • On-Page and Off-Page Optimization – This is where we dig deep and execute our SEO strategy that consists of everything from web design improvements, technical updates, content creation, link building and much more.
  • Monitoring, Reporting and Improving – As we mentioned before, this is an ongoing process, so once we establish the right strategy for your company, we continue to make improvements and track the growth of your site.

Mobile On The Mind

You may not have heard the news, but mobile searches started outperforming desktop searches in 2015; and in 2019, Google initiated its mobile-first indexing. What does this mean you ask? It means that when Google crawls your website to determine if it is relevant to a user’s search query, Google crawlers will look at the mobile version of your website and NOT the desktop version.

Suffice it to say, the mobile version of your website needs to be great. The last thing you want is to drop in rankings because the mobile version of your website is not as strong as the desktop version. Your mobile site needs a good user experience and interface, and it needs to be easy to navigate. We have the skills and experience to provide you with a mobile site that checks off all of these boxes. Our team stays on top of updates from Google, which is why we put just as much effort into the mobile version of a website as we do for the desktop version.

SEO Toronto FAQs

How long will it take for me to see results?

If you call a company that says they can get you to the number one position in under one month, then you should immediately hang up the phone. This is something that can't be predicted. It can take anywhere from 2 - 6 months, or even a full year to see results.

Who in your company works on the SEO for my website?

We have an experienced team of professionals who will execute a plan for your company, and you will have a project manager assigned to your account who will share updates with you periodically.

Is there a contract?

Not exactly. The "contract" (all of our services) is month to month. We are not interested in holding clients in with a contract. People stay with us because we show results, not because they are tied up with a contract.

Is there a money back guarantee?

No. Our team works hard to promote your business. We do not offer any guarantees. We do what we know works best, but we can't guarantee results.

Can you work to promote any business or industry?

Yes we can as long as it is a legal business.

How do I know you don't just charge me and do nothing?

We are simply not that kind of company. We pride ourselves on being committed, hard-working and credible. You can check our online reviews to see for yourself (some reviews are listed just above this FAQ section).

Secondly, you will get regular updates about the various activities that we do both on your site and off of your site. We also provide reports will show the growth and results. SEO is not magic. Positive SEO results requires hard work.

Are changes on my website included?

It depends on the requested changes.

What is the longest time it took you to see results on SEO?

We had a client in a very competitive industry. We thought it would take us about 2 years to achieve the desired results, but we started to see amazing results within 13 months.

Can I do my own SEO?

Technically yes. You can do many things, but it won't be as good as what we do. Our team involves developers, content writers, designers, and more. If you have all of these skills then go for it. But let's be realistic, it makes sense to hand off SEO to a team of professionals. It's strategic to let us take care of your SEO needs, as we can do it in a faster and more efficient manner, while you focus on your business.

Do you have experience working with mobile websites?

Yes. We optimize all versions of your website for SEO, and this includes desktop, tablet, and of course, mobile.

How do you measure success?

Simple: keyword growth, traffic to your website and increase in online leads.

Do I need to do anything?

SEO encompasses so many things. Two things the client can do to help bolster our SEO efforts are maintaining excellent customer service and trying to get as many positive reviews as possible. Positive reviews send a strong message to search engines that your company has a great reputation and provides amazing customer service. Search engines like Google want to provide a great experience to its users, which is why it will display relevant search results and companies that its users love. When it comes to everything else for SEO, you can leave that to us.

Can you optimize my website?

No. Some sites just aren't built right or do not have an ideal structure. We would recommend redoing or improving your website before jump-starting an SEO strategy. Having a great website that serves as a springboard for an SEO plan is 50% of the work.

How often will I get updates during the process?

This depends on the package you sign up for and on your business. Some of our clients get bi-weekly updates and some get updates once a month.

Do I need to provide you with content when you do SEO?

It does help, as you know your product or service intimately. However, most of our clients do not provide us with content. That being said, if you are in the legal industry, then we will have to approve every single word with you, and there are some things we will ask you to write. Other than that, we write all of the content.

What is the shortest time it took you to see results on SEO?

Back in 2012, we would implement our SEO strategies and get results within 1 week (which was crazy). Unfortunately, this is not the case anymore. Now it take longer to see results. We have helped a client in a competitive industry achieve many top positions on page with with 4.5 months. We achieved this success starting from scratch with a brand new website. Our work definitely helped the company reach such heights, but some of us still think it is a combination of luck as well.

How confident should I be that I will get business from SEO?

If people are looking for you, then you will get business. It's not quick or cheap, but it's worth it.
