Our Approach to SEO
  • Technical SEO Audit

    If you have an existing website that is not generating new business, it's important that we find out why. The first thing we will suggest is a technical SEO audit.

    These audits are thorough examinations of a website's architecture and code that allow us to identify opportunities to improve your search engine visibility. We can identify issues that may be preventing you from achieving your digital marketing objectives, and take steps to fix them. These audits typically look at your website's design, functionality, content, and, most importantly, level of search engine optimisation.

    The following are some of the major areas that will be examined during a technical SEO audit.

    Website Design: This includes evaluating your website's overall look and feel, navigation, and layout, among other things. We will also determine whether your website is responsive (i.e. if it works correctly on mobile devices).

    Website Functionality: This includes contact forms, payment gateway integration, e-commerce functionality, and so on.

    Website Structure: Is it simple to navigate your website? Are your page titles unique and keyword-rich? Are your pages properly connected?

    Technical Factors: Is your website responsive? Is your website loading fast? Do you have any broken links or coding errors?

    Website Content: We will look for errors, duplicate content, thin content, keyword stuffing, and other issues that may be affecting your website.

    On-site SEO: This is the most important aspect of the audit. We will examine your website's code for any technical errors that may be affecting your search engine rankings. We will evaluate your on-page optimisation which includes title tags, meta descriptions, keyword density, internal linking, structured data and other important factors.

  • Competitor Research

    We are able to compare your website traffic to that of your competitors to see where you stand. With website competitor analysis, you can see their estimated total traffic, top traffic sources, bounce rate, time on page, and more to help create a competitive SEO strategy.

    It's important to find out who your organic search competitors are and how you can compete with them. Together we will learn the worth of the specific keywords they're ranking for and highlight the gaps that even your competitors are missing.

  • Keyword Discovery

    Keyword research is essential to any SEO strategy because it provides a starting point. People will use various keywords to find the products and services you provide, but they will not always be the ones you expect.

    We must think about specific problems or situations that might cause someone to search. The next step will be to compile a comprehensive list of keywords and target areas, which will aid in the development of a new SEO and content strategy.

    We will help you discover the best keywords to boost your SEO strategy. We can determine the organic and advertising value of any keyword based on search volume, intent, keyword difficulty, number of results, competition level, SERP Features, variations, and other factors.

    Using the best SEO tools, our team will optimise your organic keywords and look for new ways to win relevant SERPs for your target audience.

    With real-time metrics for up to 1,000 keywords, we can create powerful master lists that fit your SEO strategy and goals.

  • Backlink Analysis

    Link building can be one of the most difficult aspects of SEO. Stop cold-calling prospects and start constructing an authoritative backlink profile. Get instant access to the most recent database of over 43.0 trillion backlinks.

    We are able to discover and track inbound links using a dynamic backlink builder powered by the market's largest and fastest database. Based on your competitor's backlink profiles, we can look for link outreach opportunities to boost your SEO.

    We will examine the referring domains you're missing and the Authority Score column to create a list of opportunities with the greatest SEO impact.

  • SEO - The Basics

    Before we begin, there are some preliminary tasks that must be completed. This is to ensure that we are satisfied with the website and to allow us time to install any additional software or plug-ins.

    Based on our findings from the technical SEO audit, we will implement any minor improvements that are critical to the success of your campaign.

  • Content Development

    Whether your website is brand new or you already have a presence, content development is an essential component of your marketing strategy. You can increase brand awareness, increase traffic to your website, and convert visitors into buyers by creating and distributing quality content.

    Our content development stage includes a number of processes such as research, writing, editing, and formatting. It may also include organising and designing new pages. Using the data gathered during discovery, we will collaborate with you to create new content that will capture your audience's attention and convert them into customers.

    The content on your website will be written in simple, straightforward language. It will also demonstrate your knowledge and professionalism. This will be accomplished by incorporating keywords relevant to your target market into your content.

    In addition, we may suggest videos, new images, and searchable digital elements. These will aid in the generation of leads and the improvement of your website's ranking in search engines. We will use behaviour analysis tools to determine the best ways to optimise the content on your website. This will assist us in determining the most effective way to engage your audience and convert them into customers.

  • Technical SEO

    Technical SEO assists you in building a strong foundation and ensuring that your site can be crawled and indexed. We will ensure that your website is fully optimised, technically sound, and not suffering from any issues or errors.

    • Site Speed

    • Broken Links

    We will collaborate to create unique content that will pique the interest of bloggers and media outlets, with the goal of spreading this content across the web and generating high-quality backlinks to your website. Many of these are looking for content on topics related to your products and services on a regular basis.

  • Blogging

    Adding new content to your website on a regular basis increases traffic and provides users with information that can help them learn more about your products and services. We will advise you on the best topics, coach you and your team on content creation, and together create content that will support your SEO campaign, and keep your audience coming back for more.

  • Monitoring & Reporting

    We will closely monitor all incoming traffic to your website and track the performance of your campaign. Google Analytics and our other software will provide us with crucial data such as keyword traffic, click-through rates, time spent on a page, conversions, and much more.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is SEO?

    The process of increasing the quality and quantity of website traffic from search engines to a website is known as search engine optimisation. SEO prioritises unpaid traffic (also referred to as "natural" or "organic" results) or direct traffic. Organic traffic can come from a variety of sources, including image and video searches, research-based searches, news searches, and niche search engines tailored to specific industries.

    SEO involves a set of practices aimed at improving the visibility and positioning of web pages in organic search results. Because organic search is the most common way for people to discover and access online content, having a good SEO strategy in place is critical for increasing the quality and quantity of traffic to your website.

    SEO considers how search engines work, the computer-programmed algorithms that govern search engine behaviour, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords entered into search engines, and which search engines their targeted audience prefers. SEO is performed because a website will receive more visitors from a search engine if it ranks higher on the results page.

    Crawlers, also known as bots or spiders, are used by search engines such as Google and Bing to gather information about all of the content available on the internet. The crawler begins with a well-known web page and proceeds to follow internal links to pages within that site as well as external links to pages on other sites. The content on those pages, as well as the context of the links it followed, assist the crawler in determining what each page is about and how it is semantically connected to all of the other pages in the search engine's massive database, known as an index.

    Whenever a user types or speaks a query into a search engine it employs sophisticated algorithms to generate what it believes to be the most accurate and useful set of results for that query. Organic results may include text-heavy web pages, news articles, images, videos, local business listings, and other more specialised types of content.

    There are numerous factors that go into search engine algorithms, and those factors are constantly evolving to keep up with changing user behaviour and advances in machine learning.

  • How long does SEO take to work?

    Whether you're a web marketer or a business owner, you might be asking yourself "how long does SEO take?" The answer depends on a variety of factors. For example, your company's budget can determine how much SEO work you need to do. The competition level in your industry may also affect your results.

    For most businesses, it's normal to see substantial SEO results within 6 to 12 months. However, if you're using high-competition keywords, it might take longer. Similarly, if your website is new, you'll have to invest more time and resources than if you're a more established business.

    While SEO doesn't happen overnight, most experts believe it takes between 4 and 15 hours per week to achieve significant results. A specialised online solution provider, such as a company that offers both SEO and social media services, will be able to give you results faster.

    The amount of time you'll need to spend on SEO will depend on your company's budget and your SEO strategy. The most time-consuming activities include content writing and link building. Having a strong backlink profile will influence future ranking improvements.

    Depending on your goals, it might take up to six months to see results.

  • How much does SEO cost?

    Search engine optimization can cost you anywhere from £500 to £10,000 per month, depending on the size of your business, the amount of competition you face, and which part of the industry you're in. A successful SEO strategy requires extensive planning, and it is critical to budget for the long term.

    The cost of SEO is determined by the services and tools required. Copywriting, on-page optimisation, and outreach to other sites are all common components of an SEO campaign. The price will also vary depending on the number of professionals are required to implement and manage your campaign.

    Typically, at least one expert will be required to handle your content and other responsibilities.

    If you work in a competitive part of the industry, you may need more keywords and a more tactical approach to your content. Hiring a company with industry experience could mean the difference between success and failure in these cases.

  • What are the most important ranking factors?

    Going over each of the more than 200 search engine ranking factors takes time. Understanding which factors have the most impact on your position in search results can help you begin auditing your site, optimising your content, and getting your website to the top of search results sooner rather than later.

    Here is a list of some of the SEO factors we feel are the most important:

    Site speed
    Google admits to using site speed as an important SEO ranking factor. In addition to crawling and viewing your site from a mobile perspective, Google will test the speed of your mobile or responsive website. If your website is too slow, you may lose first-page rankings or even the number-one spot in search results. You can use the GTmetrix Performance tool to check the speed of your pages for free.

    On-page optimisation
    On-page optimisation involves several tasks, ranging from incorporating keywords throughout your content, headers, and title tags to optimising images for context, size, and users. Miss one, such as not optimising your title tag for your keyword, and you could compromise your search engine rankings.

    To appear in search results, search engines must be able to crawl and index your website. That is why it is critical to ensure your website accessible. When you have confirmed the accessibility of your site, you can take the proactive step of submitting your site, pages, and sitemap to Google via Google Search Console. Users should be able to access your website as well. Your website needs to be simple and easy for users to use. If your website is difficult to use, you will struggle to rank in search results and keep those rankings.

    Good content
    Content is king, and is an essential component of any SEO strategy. The length of content on a page, as opposed to shorter, less helpful alternatives, reflects attention to detail and quality. According to research, longer content receives more social shares (which can also serve as an indirect ranking factor), organic traffic, and higher rankings. Google will like you more if you create content for search engine users and provide a good experience for them.

    Regular updates
    If you update your blog on a regular basis, Google will index your site more frequently to look for changes, increasing the number of pages you can have in the search result pages. You can also make improvements to your static pages as you learn more about what people are searching for. FAQs are a great way to provide additional informnation to your users.

    Inbound links
    Inbound links (also known as backlinks) are an important component of successful SEO. Link building from reputable websites demonstrate to Google that you are trusted by other website owners, which helps the linked pages and your overall site rank higher in search engine result pages.

  • What happens when you get a Google penalty?

    Getting a Google penalty can be a big bummer. Not only can it affect your rankings, but it can also damage your website's bottom line. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to recover. It may take several months or even years to get back up to speed, but in the end, it's worth it.

    The first step in getting out of a Google penalty is to understand what the problem is. In many cases, a Google penalty is due to an error made by a webmaster. Generally, you'll need to get in touch with an expert to discuss the issue. If the issue is a webmaster error, you may need to submit a formal request to reconsider the penalty. If the issue is due to a spammy link, you'll need to remove it or disavow it.

    The second step is to use the Google search engine to see if you're being penalised. If you're not, you should check your messages to see if you have any new penalty notices. You can do this via Google Search Console.

    The best way to avoid a Google penalty is to adhere to the Google Search Essential Guidelines. These guidelines are designed to ensure that your users have a pleasant experience on Google's search engine. There are two main types of penalties: algorithmic and manual. The algorithmic one is a bit more difficult to detect, but if you're diligent about keeping up with Google's algorithms, you're probably well on your way to avoiding it.

    Luckily, Google Search Console has an easy-to-use search bar to search for any and all manual penalties you may have received. In addition to this, you can check for the same on the sidebar. Lastly, you can perform a Google Analytics search to see which keywords are driving the most traffic to your site. These can be helpful indicators of whether or not you're on the right track.

    The main purpose of a Google penalty is to punish websites that do not follow the company's search guidelines. If you're guilty of a black-hat technique, such as keyword stuffing or scraping, you might find yourself the victim of an algorithmic penalty. These are less common than the manual version but can be just as detrimental.

    A website might be able to recover from a Google penalty, but you'll have to spend some time and effort on the process. You can do this by measuring your marketing metrics. These will allow you to determine how well your recovery efforts are working. You might also want to check your link profile for any unhealthy or unwanted links.

    If you have been affected by a Google Penalty, please get in touch.

    While some of the best SEO tools require a little bit of learning, they can save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. They can show you where your site ranks against your competitors, which queries bring you the most traffic, and where you can make the biggest improvements.
