Frequently-asked questions

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of ensuring a website is firstly, visible and accessible to search engines and secondly, optimised to appear for relevant search terms.

How does SEO work?

SEO is the process of making your website accessible and friendly to search engines. There are hundreds of ranking signals used by Google, Bing, etc to rank your site and we work with you to make sure these are incorporated into your site.

Does SEO deliver results quickly?

SEO is very much a marathon not a sprint. But our SEO strategies combine both quick wins with slower burning, long term tactics to consistent results over a long period of time.

Our initial strategy will focus on improving the current site, removing any pitfalls that may prevent users and search engine bots from accessing your site. Simultaneously, we look at long-term strategies that will allow us to build towards greatness.

Can we expect ROI from SEO?

Absolutely, we provide weekly or monthly reports focused on attributing the work completed to website performance.

How do search algorithms work?

Search algorithms read through billions of webpages to find the most relevant, trustworthy and useful ones to match the term you searched for.

These algorithms use a ranking system made up of a whole series of factors from your query intent, including your location to the expertise, authority, trust and relevance of the pages they return.

While nobody knows 100% what all the factors are and how much weight is applied to each, we have years of experience in optimising and adapting to changes in the algorithm.

But, we do know the main ranking factors that we take into account:

  • Overall site health
  • Page load speed
  • Mobile friendliness
  • User experience
  • Quality backlinks
  • Page titles
  • Onpage content
