Cannabis Marketing SEO Services that Get Results

Successful SEO campaigns that don’t sacrifice creativity or brand voice

Why does SEO matter for cannabis companies?

No limitations

When it comes to marketing, cannabis businesses are used to hearing the word “no.” Thankfully, SEO is an enthusiastic and refreshing “yes.” There are no rules that prevent you from using organic SEO to increase your reach and acquire new customers — as long as your website and content are compliant with your state, of course.

Long-lasting results

SEO is a long-term game with immense long-term payoff. Putting in the work now reaches customers months and even years later, without paying per click or relying on costly lead generation services. An investment in SEO is an investment in your company’s longevity.

Your website is yours

Unlike TikTok and Instagram that are quick to shut down your accounts, you own your website — especially a website developed on an open source platform like WordPress — now and forever. The importance of ownership can’t be understated in such a volatile environment. Invest in the platform that’s truly yours, and watch the investment pay off.

Local SEO best practices are best for dispensaries trying to capture foot traffic for the coveted “dispensary near me” search, one of the most-searched keywords in cannabis SEO. Through the use of localized content, Google Business Profile (formerly known as Google My Business), and local SEO best practices, we have a proven track record of helping dispensaries increase their visibility — and their bottom line.

  • Creative ideas and solutions for enhancing local SEO benefits
  • Reviews, testimonials, and other strategies for local marketing
  • Collaborate with store staff to coordinate on campaigns

Content and SEO Audits

SEO is constantly evolving, and auditing ensures that your site stays ahead of the competition.  Whether you’re a new-to-us client and need to set benchmarks or you’ve been with us for years, auditing paints a clear picture of where your site stands in comparison to competitors and other websites. Our auditing process is fine-tuned to focus on the most essential elements that help you rise to the top of search results.

  • Auditing and reporting for all stage websites, including pre-build
  • Frequent content audits built into every cannabis SEO package
  • Thorough site auditing to regularly recommend improvements and updates

Off-site SEO services like link-building help contribute to your site’s credibility by signaling to Google and other search engines that your site is one of authority and worth visiting. It’s one of many, many factors that contribute to your website’s overall health, and one we’ve mastered with a link-building program that prioritizes authoritative, natural backlinks to websites that matter to your audience.

CannaContent’s link-building program carefully curates and hand-builds all citations. We continuously monitor all the backlinks we secure and accompany each one with a multi-year guarantee. Choose from two tiered options: local outreach and national outreach.
