In-House Operational Excellence in SEO

Walk into any large organization where SEO is not going well and you will often notice the same pattern. The SEO practice is centralized around a few people with all the knowledge and a lack of mandate nor proper business case to make any meaningful difference in an organization that is too big for their limited reach.

SEO remains a tactical and often ad-hoc practice without strategy and without a plan to lift the organization’s operational excellence in SEO to a level where you will see proven results and a cumulative capability growth in-house across all teams, global and locale, that impact SEO in one way or the other.

How to achieve operational excellence in SEO, in-house

SEO landscape confrontation matrix

To build an E2E SEO strategy you need to granularly understand the SEO landscape of the business internally and how it needs to confront the reality outside; search audiences and search engine algorithms. Then construct a picture of the capability gaps, people requirements, IT and budget requirements that are needed to enable the integration of the SEO capability into the organization.

The clarity on organizational gaps to fill will then enable SEO strategies, from clarity to execution. Again from SEO landscape to identifying SEO strategy gaps and its feasibility to realize business goals, then to the SEO strategy mix and finally the execution of strategies.

This may show, you won’t get there with generalists and likely your in-house SEO specialists also need help to be able to zoom out to landscape level and zoom in deeply into strategies and business processes to bring SEO strategies to realization.

For an enterprise this also shows one SEO role is not enough. 7 Strategy pillars times 6 in-house foundations is 42 organizational touch points to consider for SEO.
