SEO Freelancer Zurich

The city and canton of Zurich are great places for developing a business and online presence.

According to the STATENT Structural Business Statistics source, there are more than 106,00 established companies in the city and canton of Zurich.

More than 560,000 people contribute to the canton’s economic life every day.

In this dense economic landscape, a company’s online visibility must be a priority.

SEO optimizes this presence to ensure that your site appears in the top results of search engines like Google.

So when a prospect or customer is looking for precise information on a particular service, supplier or trade, a website with a good SEO strategy will have better visibility.

A very special element of Zurich is that over 40% of the working population use English in their professional environment.

Many of the city’s residents also speak English as a common language.

At werank, we understand these linguistic nuances.

We are able to develop strategies that meet the needs of the multilingual Zurich market (German and English) and also align with industry-specific trends.

This allows your company to stand out in an already crowded market.

The challenges of Google search engine optimization in Zurich

Canton Zurich is positioning itself as a key national and international marketplace.

Numerous national and international companies are based in the city, including UBS, Swisslife and Axa. But also along the lake, such as Lindt & Sprüngli, Sonova or Swiss Re.

No less than one in eight jobs is held by a foreign company with a local branch based in Canton Zurich.

Zurich companies face tough competition, not only locally, but also in relation to neighboring countries such as Germany or on a global scale such as the USA.

Standing out on Google is a real challenge. A company must respond to specific needs and preferences.

To be seen nationally and internationally, companies need to create content that “speaks” not only in German, but also in English.

What’s more, as the majority of companies based in the Canton of Zurich are already investing in digital marketing and search engine optimization (SEO), the online space is already amply supplied.

To meet these challenges, we can create a multilingual SEO strategy, tailored to the challenges of international competition, local nuances and linguistic diversity.

Specific benefits of hiring a freelance SEO Zurich

Working with a freelance SEO consultant in Zurich offers many advantages.

Foremost, a freelancer with expertise in the Swiss market is a valuable asset.

At werank, we have a very good understanding of the Swiss digital landscape. We know the difference between platforms like Galaxus and Amazon, Ricardo and eBay or Jobs and Indeed.

We have a solid expertise in the linguistic peculiarities of Switzerland’s main languages.

Distinguishing between terms such as “Natel” and “Téléphone portable”, “Séance” and “Réunion” or “Linge” for “Serviette de maison” in a Swiss context.

This expertise ensures that our strategies are precisely tailored to the Zurich audience, drawing on local information that may be underestimated by international freelancers or those from a neighboring country.

Finally, the proximity of a freelance SEO in Zurich is a major asset.

Strategic meetings can be held directly on the customer’s premises.

During critical phases of the project, a Zurich-based SEO freelancer can temporarily visit his customer’s premises.
