We recommend starting at our blog post, 9 easy ways to boost your SEO. In the article, we cover off some of the basic items that can help give your site a Google boost.
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation. In summary, SEO ensures your website presents information and content in a way that can be easily understood by search engines, such as Google. Among other things this information needs to be well structured, trustworthy and quick to load.
The goal of our SEO work is to ensure your site is displayed as high as possible on Google for phrases that your future clients use. Some of the work we do includes:
We consider SEO work to be ongoing and anticipate you’ll start seeing positive movements within 3-6 months. However, it’s unlikely that these steps forward will see you ranking first on Google, especially for competitive keywords. Typically we recommend an SEO plan of 6 – 24 months.
We recently wrote an article called ‘A Guide to SEO for the impatient’. In it we say that the more Google trusts your site and content, the higher your site will rank. Just like in the real world trust is earned and takes time. Through constantly ensuring your site meets with the steps to a Google friendly site you’ll be constantly moving upward.
This all depends on the purpose of your site. If you’re not worried about ranking on Google and you don’t want leads through your website then nope, you probably don’t need SEO.
If you’re in a competitive sector and you want your website to win you new clients then absolutely, you need to consider SEO as a way to grow your audience. You can bet that your competitors will be doing SEO.
We believe that SEO is important to your business survival and is one of the smartest ways to build awareness of your business over a long term. People trust organic ranking because it’s based on merit and demonstrates you value open communication.
You can! Google Ads is a great way of building immediate, effective traffic – especially if you have a great ad strategy. That said, we find that a combination of Google Ads and SEO can work incredibly well by attracting two types of searchers – those that click on Ads and those that prefer to scroll down to organic rankings.
We have written a few articles that may help you decide whether you need one or the other – or both:
With our websites you have full administrative access to your site so, yes, you can manage your SEO work. There are lots of moving parts to an SEO strategy and it’s not easy but we do have some guides that may help you get going. Whether you’re looking for a Perth SEO agency to manage your local ranking or a team that understand how to rank nationally, the SEO team at Start are here to help!
We recommend avoiding any company or individual that offers cheap, shortcut options to an SEO strategy. There are no shortcuts in SEO and anyone that promises otherwise should be given a wide berth.
SEO relies on a strong understanding of the local and national space. If your business is providing business to Australian residents then a good knowledge of local SEO practices is vital to success.
