From conducting robust audits to securing your website, finding and fixing site issues and making sure your site is mobile friendly, our experts set the technical foundation needed for long-term SEO success.
Technical SEO has a ton of moving parts. There are hundreds of on-page factors that go into the ranking of your website, it can be hard to keep up with them all. Our team of SEO experts focuses on optimizing these factors, increasing site speed, eliminating broken pages, establishing a robust internal linking structure, and ensuring content on your site isn’t duplicated. We also create and update your XML sitemap, secure your website, ensure title and meta tags are optimized for search, ensure your site is SEO mobile friendly, and keep up with all of the best practice guidelines set by Google and other major search engines.
Our seasoned technical SEO team has experienced every Google algorithm update since 2003. We work closely with our Google Analytics Certified team pre- and post-SEO audit to analyze organic traffic and visibility for your site. We are also CMS agnostic, meaning we’ve optimized hundreds of sites on many different content management systems including Umbraco, Wordpress, Sitecore, Joomla, Magento, DotNetNuke, and more.
You need a team of thought partners you can interact and collaborate with. Not a tool that spits out cookie cutter recommendations for a development team.Whatever your framework, we’ll work with your web development team to consult and implement technical SEO updates to your site. If you do not have a technical team, we have a team of web developers standing by to make all updates on your site. The best part? We handle all SEO in-house. Our team handles everything from audits to strategy, implementation to maintenance, and even ongoing reporting.
How do you know where you’re going if you don’t have a map? At Marcel Digital, our team of SEO experts lift the hood on your website to get a full diagnostic on the overall SEO technical performance and how it can be improved. In this phase, we’ll take a look at all of the technical SEO best practices that are essential in laying the foundation for an ongoing successful SEO strategy.
Our comprehensive SEO audit, which has over 100 touchpoints, will assess your:
- Site architecture
- Mobile friendliness
- Page speed issues
- Sitemap XML
- Crawl errors

Penalty Recovery & Removal
Search engine penalties can be one of the most impactful, frustrating events to ever happen to your website. If you’ve lost significant traffic to your site, it might be due to a penalty from a search engine for past failed optimization techniques or factors outside of your control.
A penalty is when a search engine finds manipulative practices on or off a website, such as low quality content or bad link building. Most of the time, this is done without your knowledge, but it’s important that the problem is rooted out and fixed before it gets worse. Our technical SEO experts have helped hundreds of websites recover from penalties and can help you recover as well.
How do we do it?
- Thorough SEO penalty analysis
- Comprehensive backlink profile analysis
- Investigation into when and how the penalty(s) happened
- Prioritized plan of action for recovery of traffic and rankings
- Ongoing SEO analysis to avoid future penalties and issues
We find what caused your SEO to decrease, how it can be fixed, and take the necessary steps to make sure it never happens again. We also want to look past the penalty and determine a strategy for long-term recovery and growth of your organic traffic.

Marcel Digital is simply the best Digital Marketing agency. We hired them years ago, and I can't say enough amazing things about their dedication to the field, to my team, and their phenomenal leadership team. Top-notch professionals all around.
Kim Rafalowitz / Dir. of Global Marketing / Worldpoint
I went with Marcel Digital over a larger - and much higher priced - competitor and it's one of the best decisions I've made. Marcel Digital are lovely people to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and approachable and willing to take the time to examine possible solutions that differ from how they would normally proceed. I value the partnership with their company and am planning on having our company be a client of theirs for years to come. Can't recommend them enough.

Having a partnership with Marcel Digital has been a lifesaver for our business. We could not be happier with their work ethic, attention to detail, and superior expertise. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a talented, and trustworthy partner!

We have been using Marcel Digital for the past few years. We attribute our growth to the staff at Marcel and have embraced them as part of our company.
