Search engine optimisation is short for SEO. It is the process of increasing your website organic ranking within a search engine, like Google and Bing. The better organic positioning of a website is more likely to gain more visibility and, in turn, attract more attention from customers. Gaining better organic results consists of achieving three things. The are technical SEO, content creation & building links. Our SEO specialists know all three, and we use this to gain positive results for your website. Not only does SEO improve your rankings, but SEO also brings excellent ROI. This is achieved by creating specific landing pages targeting several keywords. As a result, this will help generate your business goals, whether that is leads or sales.

After we have completed the SEO Audit, we like to do competitor research and keyword research. The competitor research allows us to benchmark against your competitors as well as identify their strengths and weaknesses. Whilst the keyword research helps to optimise your site.
2. On-page Optimisation
We focus on writing the titles, descriptions, H1 tags and analysing the content to ensure it's maximising the SEO efforts. Also, we take a deep dive into the more technical on-page elements such as page speed, internal links and schema.
3. Content Creation & Link Building
Content creation & link building both work together. It is essential to create high-quality content that naturally attracts links from other websites. Long gone are the days of building links quickly from spammy websites. Today Google trusts websites with high Domain Authority and tends to rank them higher in the search engines. So it's essential; to have a solid link building and content marketing strategy, along with content. Whether it’s writing a blog or creating an infographic our team of skilled designers and writers will create content that makes an impact.
