In order to be found by your audience in their web searches, your website needs to be optimised. Search engine marketing includes a variety of activities that will influence the position of your website in search results, for the search terms you want to be found for.
More than just complying with Google guidelines and ever-changing algorithms, SEO is discovering the ways your audience are searching and the language they are using, before using this information to create a website that is optimised to perform well in organic search , as well as offering the value and information your audience require.
Improving your visibility in search engine results is only the beginning of the journey. Your website needs to provide a great experience for users, from well-written, optimised copy, to design and information architecture. Quick fix SEO isn’t the answer where you may experience short-lived results, but this will eventually lead to long-term damage that is difficult to recover from.

You can rely on us to keep up to date with the latest techniques and search algorithm changes, while you get on with what you do best.
We like to think of SEO as three defined areas – Crawlability, Content and Credibility.
To ensure that your website can be crawled by search engines and indexed in the most favourable positions, improving its visibility in the SERPS and securing organic traffic, it needs to be optimised using technical SEO.
The above elements are also referred to as ‘on-site SEO’. When these elements are well-optimised, the search engine can quickly and thoroughly interpret a webpage, identify it as useful and relevant to the search query before ranking it well, securing traffic.
Our team of experts are well versed in all elements of technical SEO, carrying out methodical audits, before making informed recommendations and actioning tasks in order of priority.
Popularity in search engines is now also defined by the quality of the content on your website. Google and the other search engines determine popularity by the number and quality of other websites that link back to your website.
Another indicator is the way that users interact with your website. For instance, how many pages are users looking at? How long are they staying on your website? What is the conversion rate?
All of these factors can influence your position in search results. If your content is of high-quality, informative, engaging and delivers value to the user, this will be demonstrated by your user’s behaviour, and will be a factor that influences improved rankings.
Your website visitor is looking for information, advice, expertise and insight into the areas that you specialise in. This can take the form of:
