Why should I hire an SEO Company?

When hiring an SEO company, you will receive a full experienced team consisting of SEO Executives, Content Writers, Web Developers and Account Managers who have working knowledge on how to grow your brand on search engines. An SEO company will have extensive knowledge of digital marketing as a whole and be able to provide a strategic plan to increase your company’s growth.

How does SEO work?

Essentially, SEO is optimising your website to increase website visitors in line with algorithms to maximise visibility. SEO specialists will regularly audit elements of a website to ensure the site ranks highly in popular search engines for relevant keywords. In essence, it involves making certain changes to your website’s layout and content to make it catch the attention of the search engine’s algorithm and give the user a good experience. There are over 200 ranking factors and Google's algorithm is updated every few months, so without ongoing SEO work, you risk your site dropping in the rankings after an update if you haven't made adjustments in line with the purpose of the update.

What reporting do you provide?

The reports provide a top-down overview of how a website is performing within search engines, focusing on organic traffic, rankings and domain metrics. If you take other services those will also be included in the report. Our reports pull in data from many sources and are an easy to interpret review of what's been done & achieved each month.

What is local SEO?

In a nutshell, local SEO is when you search online for a key phrase or keyword that could include words like 'near me' or referencing your area you're in and you are given the best local results based on your location. There are many local SEO tactics to help you be more visible to people searching in your target areas, Google My Business is a great example of how to work on increasing the website's local presence.

How long does it take to see results from SEO?

It’s hard to predict exactly when you will see results on your investment. Results are not instant as it takes time to build up the authority in search engines. Typically, the first 6 months can include work like targeted tweaking content, making website design adjustments, backlink profile building and technical audits to help increase visitors and leads/sales. The results including increased traffic, keyword performance & leads will build up over time, and, depending on a few main factors like how old or new your website & brand are.

If I do other types of marketing, is SEO really needed?

Great question! Search engine optimisation is a full behind-the-scenes type of magic, but not the type involving deception. Search engines have a clever mathematical way of judging websites, and judge they will! They have to give the searcher the best results, and an unoptimised and slow website will be beaten by the websites that are continually improved & optimised which is why SEO is so important, so don't get left behind!
