SEO - Search Engine Optimisation

To get your expertly crafted website seen by the right audience, you need laser-sharp SEO. Search engine optimisation is how to expand your customer base and attract organic (non-paid) traffic to your site.
For successful SEO, it’s essential to get the fundamentals right. We gain a comprehensive understanding of your ideal client before conducting thorough keyword research. Wherever you are looking to improve your search performance, we have the tools to put your site in front of your target audience.


10 minute video SEO audit

Before we start work on your website we conduct a full SEO audit of your current website. This includes both technically SEO and offsite SEO. We look at all your content, your current website structure, your current keyword rankings, your backlinks and more.


In-depth keyword research

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.


Comprehensive competitor analysis

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.


Full search strategy created

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.

Our Web Development Process

How We Design and Develop Websites

There are some key elements to every website development project we work on, these elements are what our team specialises and this expertise is what wins us awards over other digital agencies.

User Journey

Work with us to identify your website’s key user journeys and then optimise them to significantly increase conversions. The KIJO website development team specialises in identifying user types and then creating a tailored journey for each user type to achieve the primary goals of the website.

Design System

Detail is what delivers a high quality user experience. We plan & create a branded design system that covers all the elements needed to build a website. In the design system we detail colour palettes, font choices, button styles, photography style and much more. The design system is your 1st step on the visual journey towards a new website.

UI/UX Design

Using the design system created the specialist UI designers at KIJO will start to create a modern website UI using all the brand system elements. Our UI team are experienced in focussing on UX to ensure the best possible experience for your users once the website is complete.


Once it’s time to develop and build the finalised designs our expert WordPress developers get cracking. We create pixel perfect websites that reflect the designs exactly as they was intended with all the bespoke functionality needed to hit the original brief. At this stage we do not need much client interaction, we will let you know once the website has been through our internal testing process and signed off ready for external testing.


We only release websites that are award worthy, the KIJO team are proud of and websites that will WOW our clients. To keep to these standards we have a strict, high attention to detail internal testing process. Only once a website is signed off internally will we provide an external testing link to the client side project stakeholders.
