Our SEO strategy services


We use comprehensive SEO audit tools and keyword research tools to establish prime improvement opportunities.

  • We find out what your potential customers are searching for online
  • We discover how your customers perform searches
  • We recommend the search terms you should be aiming to rank for
  • We research your competitors in actual search engine results pages
  • We check to see if your site (or single web page) is well optimised to achieve a high search rank
  • We check known ranking factors (such as page speed) to see if any improvements could be made

In-depth keyword research

Keyword research is more than creating a list of keywords and then choosing those with a high search volume. The latest best practice suggests that we need to place much more emphasis on search intent. That means: What do customers expect to see when they search for specific things?

Do some of your keywords show patterns that can be seen within Google trends (maybe the search term is seasonal or linked to a regular event)? Are there search queries that could target voice search and the human style searches of Google’s BERT experiments?

We compile a list of relevant keyword ideas for each page that you want to increase the search engine visibility for. We then review the landscape of those keywords to see how they are used by competitors and identify further opportunities.

Comprehensive technical site audits

Technical site audits help us to understand the health of your site and make suggestions for improvements.

  • We check if there are any broken links or pages that lead customers to a dead end
  • We also investigate whether there is any duplicated content across multiple pages that may affect your rankings
  • Are there any issues with the XML sitemap, and has it been uploaded to Google Search Console in the correct way?
  • Does the site have any issues that could restrict how quickly pages load?
  • Finally, we perform standard checks to find out how easy it is for search engines to crawl your site

We review the site from a technical standpoint and send you information that is clear and easy to understand. Our reports also include details on how to fix any issues, which will help your developers to make changes.


SEO analysis provides us with valuable insight into the most efficient way to implement our research findings.

Search opportunity analysis

We use search opportunity analysis to identify areas that we can work on to help strengthen the SEO of your site. We then create a strategy document around this analysis so that you know exactly what we’re working on at any given time.

Tailored reports

As part of the analysis process, we produce reports for you based on your objectives. This ensures that our reports only include the data that you need, and maximises the value that we deliver.


Our findings from research and analysis form the foundations of our optimisation implementation.


Content marketing is a large part of SEO campaigns and can help your digital SEO in a number of ways. As well as including targeted keywords in your site, content is how you communicate with visitors and encourage them to convert.

We can help you with your SEO content creation by spotting quick wins that could be fixed, such as duplicate content issues. We can also help with traditional SEO efforts like adding meta tags, keyword research and content gap analysis. By combining our SEO findings with a content marketing plan, we can help optimise existing content or help create an entirely new piece of content as part of an ongoing plan.

Link building

Link building forms the off-site basis of many of our SEO projects. Creating or claiming links from other sites helps Google to crawl your site, and helps indicate the quality of your site. Our experience as an SEO agency helps us to easily identify backlink opportunities that are likely to be of high quality.

Local search engine optimisation services

Local SEO is used to drive visitors to locally based websites that best meet their needs. Rather than competing on a national basis for your desired keywords, our local SEO services help to put your website in front of local customers, who are searching in your area.

As part of our search engine optimisation service, we recommend any actions that could be taken to improve your local SEO. This includes checking features like Google My Business profile(s) and business listings, Google maps, social media profiles, local keyword research and location-based schema markup.

International SEO

International SEO is crucial for any organisation or brand that operates over multiple countries, particularly if each territory has a dedicated website. As well as the technical requirements that allow search engines to send traffic to the correct website, different countries may also need slightly different content and a specific backlink profile to rank effectively.

Our team uses a range of tools and knowledge to understand each target market and create a tailored SEO strategy that aims to deliver meaningful results.

Voice search

The rise of mobile browsing and virtual assistants is changing the way we search. Where we used to search using only keywords, we now search in a much more “human” way. Add in Google’s recent BERT experiments, and it’s looking more likely that voice style searches are here to stay.

To help your website stay ahead of this trend, we always supply SEO recommendations with voice search in mind.

What is SEO marketing?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. It involves optimising a website to improve that website’s rank and visibility within search engines’ organic results. This involves both technical, and on-page optimisations.

  1. Crawlable – Make sure the site is easily accessible so search engines can actually crawl the site.
  2. Keywords – Research keywords that you would like to rank for. Do you have content that can meet the intent of these search terms?
  3. Content – Optimise your content to not only “answer” customers search queries, but make it relevant and compelling. Try to make your content interesting enough, or unique enough that people will want to share it, helping grow backlinks organically.
  4. Usability – Make sure your site loads quickly, while also having good user experience.
  5. Titles and Descriptions – Optimise your titles and descriptions to entice clicks from the search engine results page.

Why is SEO important in a digital marketing strategy?

Organic traffic equates to approximately 50% of web traffic. By focusing on SEO, you can achieve higher levels of engagement with your audience.

What’s more, it can help bolster a strategy that is already in place. It can also be used as the foundations of an entire new digital strategy.

Does adding blog articles to my site really help SEO?

The more high quality, relevant and high authority content you add to your site, the better. Blog articles help customers to know that you really understand your business and create trust. They also help Google to better understand your site by creating a wider “net” of related keywords and phrases. Finally, blog posts can be shared across social channels and help to drive a further stream of traffic to your site.

Top tip… If you’re adding blog posts to your site, add relevant meta information to help optimise them for search.

Does HTTPS affect SEO?

If you haven’t already made the switch to HTTPS from HTTP, it should definitely feature high in your priorities for SEO. Websites served over HTTPS are more secure than their HTTP counterparts, and typically load slightly faster.

Also, Google indexes HTTPS pages first and has confirmed that serving your website via HTTPS is a ranking factor.

Why isn’t my current SEO strategy working?

Whether you’ve tried to implement SEO yourself or hired a freelancer or agency to do SEO for you, the reasons that an SEO strategy isn’t working are usually the same.

Usually, we see a combination of factors such as: Your website is too slow, your web pages are poorly optimised, the keywords that you’re optimising for are outside your budget, your link profile isn’t large or effective enough or your efforts aren’t being given the resources they need to flourish.

If you’re not seeing the results that you would like, the solution is often very simple and can be addressed with a thorough and robust SEO strategy.

Can I check my own SEO?

There are a range of free tools that you can use to check whether your SEO is effective or not, and we would recommend that you check all of them periodically. Google Analytics, Search Console and Pagespeed Insights are great tools for checking traffic, site issues and site speed, so they offer a really strong overview.

SEO Web Page Analyzer is a great tool for checking individual pages for missing alt tags, heading structures, internal and external links, meta title, meta description and more. Using only the tools recommended here, you should be able to get a very quick idea of how well optimised your site is for search.
