Your website is likely to be doing a few of these things well. By ensuring you are doing all of them well, we can help you to get the edge.

Search Engine Optimisation Services we offer

Search Engine Optimisation Audit 

We can audit your website and wider digital footprint. We’ll determine what improvements need to be made to help you rank for terms which will bring relevant customers to your site.

We take a look at your competitors to discover any content gaps you may have and what you could do to compete. We look at search terms that your competitors may not have covered, that you could leverage.

Once we’ve carried out the audits we have range of techniques from amending your website content, to ensuring the code is good quality and correctly labelled, to speeding up your website and enhancing usability.

This work helps ensure your potential customers can find your website on search engines like Google and Bing.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO is part of ‘On Site SEO’. It refers to the technical aspects of your website and acts as a solid foundation for ensuring your website can be found by your customers.

The following areas fall into Technical SEO:

  • Security and accessibility of the website
  • Site architecture
  • Page speed
  • Mobile friendliness
  • Quality of website code / mark-up
  • User experience

In practice we will look at whether your site has a secure certificate – so has HTTPS at the start of your URL, rather than HTTP. Whether the site has a published sitemap and a clear URL structure. We will link your site to Google Search Console, to improve your search rankings and get greater insight

We’ll evaluate whether your site is friendly for mobile users and how to enhance the mobile experience. As well as carrying out a review of how fast the site and pages load and what improvements can be made.

We have lots of tools to evaluate how your site is performing technically and make the necessary improvements.

Website content and content marketing

Content is a really important part of any website both from a usability and SEO perspective.

Our Copywriters will craft content for you that speaks to your website visitors. We’ll ensure your content is engaging, hits the right note and is easy to understand.

We follow best practice techniques. Our content is beautifully balanced with search engine optimisation, readability and customer experience in mind.

Paid Search

Paid Search refers to advertising on search engines (like Google and Bing) and allows you pay to appear in the search results for words and phrases relevant to your business.

You only pay when a customer clicks on your advert. This is known as a Pay Per Click (PPC) model of advertising. This offers a measurable and relatively controllable form of marketing compared to more traditional forms.

When you participate in paid search you are entering an auction for the keywords you would like to be shown for. The position you appear in the search results is determined by how competitive that term is – so how many other people are bidding on that term and how much they are prepared to pay. The maximum amount you pay for the click is set during the campaign set up. This control over budget is a big part of the appeal.

We can determine which search terms will give you best value for money, set up your account and campaigns. We’ll then write the adverts and get you up and running.

Local Search

Google support describes this as, “Local results appear for people who search for businesses and places near their location. They’re shown in a number of places across Maps and Search.” Local Search is important as very often people are looking for a business near them to transact with there and then. Companies making use of Local Search and that have a wider digital footprint, out perform the competition.

There is a good deal of advice and support from Google on this if you wish to do it yourself. If you prefer, we can set everything up for to make sure you start out on a good footing.

Securing your website

Migrating from HTTP to HTTPs is well worth it. Having a secure website (HTTPs) sends positive signals to your customers and to search engines that your site is trustworthy and safe to use.

We’ll ensure that getting a secure certificate and migrating your site to HTTPs is straightforward.

Site Migration requires a little expertise, to ensure that everything is done in the right order and that all the necessary redirects are in place This is a key factor in maintaining your search engine rankings.

We’ve helped lots of people to do this, so you can relax, you’re in safe hands.
