Before we start work on your website we conduct a full SEO audit of your current website. This includes both technical onsite SEO and offsite SEO. We look at all your content, your current website structure, your current keyword rankings, your backlink profile and much more.
During the SEO audit we will create a report of all the keywords you currently rank for on Google, the monthly search volume for these keywords and the position on Google you appear for that search term. Once we have all your current data we will perform keyword research to identify keywords opportunities for you to maximise your share of the organic traffic for your industry.
Who doesn’t want to see how their competitors websites are performing? Well we can provide all the data for you, we can look under the hood of any website in the world and this is what we will do with your competition. We can see what keywords they rank for, their biggest traffic driving keywords and their top pages amongst many other things. All this data can be used to help you out rank your competitors for the most high value keywords in your industry.
Once we have audited your current website, carried out our keyword research and analysed your competitors it’s time for us to put together your SEO strategy. This includes keywords we are going to target moving forward and how we will achieve those top of the page rankings through the website structure and landing page creation.
