Topical authority is a strategic concept in SEO where a website endeavours to establish itself as the leading authority in a specific field or on various topics. The essence of this approach lies in its ability to clarify and showcase a website’s expertise on a subject to search engines. Topical authority in SEO is achieved by creating a comprehensive network of content that covers a specific topic in-depth, signalling the site’s expertise to search engines.
For businesses, this means identifying key topics relevant to their niche, developing a diverse range of interlinked, high-quality content that addresses various aspects of these topics, and continuously updating and expanding this content to stay current.

No SEO campaign is complete without a robust backlink strategy. We focus on getting high-quality, relevant backlinks that signal to Google that your site is a credible and authoritative source in your industry. When building backlinks (Inbound links to your website), a business should diversify its strategy to encompass a variety of methods that we’ll share with you.
The first is Guest posting and it involves writing articles for other reputable websites in exchange for a backlink. This not only garners quality backlinks but also expands audience reach.
Link exchanges are also valuable, where businesses mutually agree to link to each other’s content. For example, At StratLab, Whenever we collaborate or work with other businesses, we make it a point to link back to their websites. In return, we also secure a link from them to ours. This reciprocal approach not only strengthens our partnerships but also enhances the online visibility and SEO performance for both parties involved, creating a Symbiotic digital relationship.
Engaging in community forums or blogs through insightful comments or discussions can open opportunities for backlinks, provided they add value and are not purely promotional. This multifaceted approach, combining direct outreach and organic growth strategies, is key to building a robust backlink profile.
Google reviews play a crucial role in enhancing a business’s online presence and search visibility. When customers leave positive reviews, it not only builds trust and credibility among potential customers but also significantly influences Google’s search algorithm. A higher number of positive reviews increases the likelihood of a business appearing in the coveted “local pack” and improves its overall search rankings. This is because Google favors businesses that are perceived as popular and reliable by users. Furthermore, reviews provide valuable feedback, allowing businesses to improve their services or products. In essence, Google reviews act as a powerful tool for businesses to boost their online visibility, attract more customers, and maintain a strong digital reputation.
