Understanding SEO

SEO is a form of marketing that helps to rank your website on the first page of search engine results, leading to an increase in organic traffic to your website thus a capturing a high number of leads.

Without going into too much detail, and confusing the heck out of you, some of the strategies we use are :

1) Using keywords in headings, subheadings and text content

2) Optimising images with alt tags

3) Getting you to create social media accounts and linking them to your site

4) Including links back to your own blog post pages (not just homepage) called internal linking

5) Regularly updating your content to tell search engines you are actively working on your site.

6) Finding opportunities for you through our vast network of designers, developer and social media strategists to create connections and backlinks with businesses in a similar industry/niche.

If you’ve ever worked with a blogger or content creator, you have probably been told that your success depends on two things: the quality of your writing and the number of visitors to your site.

To get more traffic to your site, there are lots of things you can do – from creating an email list to getting involved in social media. (Ask us about these)

But one  of the biggest things that we do is use on-page SEO techniques to help you get ranking. 

There’s no special trick for doing on-page SEO; it’s just about making sure that all of the words and phrases that people might search for when looking for something like you services or products show up on your pages.

This includes optimising titles, subtitles, headlines, image file names and captions as well as including your key words in your text.

Off-page SEO is a way of promoting your content without the need of posting on social media or commenting on other people’s posts. It can be done by getting links from websites that have higher rank and relevance to yours, writing guest articles for high ranking blogs in your field, submitting your website to article directories, and more. The goal is to get as many quality backlinks as possible so you can get better search engine rankings. 

Back linking in simple terms is when someone links to another web page from their own webpage. The more of these backlinks that are made, typically the higher a web page will rank in Google’s search engine results pages (SERPS). This isn’t an exact science though- if someone has a lot of high-quality backlinks but low quality content, they may still fall down the rankings ladder even with all those good links pointing towards them!

Backlinks essentially tells Google that you are a real company, working with other actual companies, providing great services/products.

SME will write blogs relevant to your work and industry. Using blogs, we will target key services or products that you want to get ranking for. 

The blogs we write will always be aimed first at being readable for humans and then search engines. We will ensure that when someone lands on that content, its well written and engaging.

It’s impossible to give a figure that applies to all websites, and the best that an SEO can do is give a best-guess estimate based on analyzing a website’s current performance and the proposed strategy.

There’s no getting away from the fact that SEO takes time. Google (and other search engines) want to show the best result for any given search query, and it takes time to deserve to rank. You’ve got to earn top search visibility. But with the right strategy in place, 6 to 12 months is a long enough period to be able to see the impact of SEO efforts and to be able to justify ongoing investment.

Up to 18% of local online searches end up working with the business they have looked up within 24 hours. Imagine that!!

Location targeted SEO with an eye towards sending customers directly through your doors/business is not only effective at telling people what services you offer but also providing them easy access to the information so it becomes quicker than ever before.

All about local SEO

Local SEO is about optimizing your site for the location it is in. For example, if you are in a certain suburb or city, then you would optimize for people looking for things in exact area vs SEO whose main focus is not location. 

A local SEO strategy will help your business be found more easily in your local area, for the specific products or services you offer. 

Just a small fact: 92% of searchers will pick businesses on the first page of local search results. (Source: SEO Expert)

GMB is the acronym for Google My Business, which is Google’s way of helping you manage your business on their platform. We can control things like how your company appears in search results and what customers will see when they click on it. 

Google My Business allows you to list your company’s location on Google Maps and local search results, thus telling google that you provide these services/products in this specific area. We may include important information about your business, such as opening/closing hours, contact information, or a link to your website. A completed GMB listing can significantly improve a company’s local SEO ranking. It establishes an immediate first impression for any user who searches for a company like yours.

Our charges for local SEO start at $499 depending on a few factors such as number of products/services and the areas you want to rank for. 

We use SEO tools and google analytics to track the engagement for your website via GMB or organic search. These reports are provided to you monthly. 

Local SEO can sometimes be faster to rank for than SEO, giving us a bit of an advantage. We’ve had customers who have ranked within a month and others who have taken upto 8 months.
