Using SEO to drive traffic to your website

SEO isn’t rocket science but it can be very unpredictable. There’s no guaranteed 100% strategy to make every single piece of content rank number 1 on google, there’s no guarantee that you’ll keep the number one spots you have. This is all because google is continually evolving and updating its search algorithms, other website’s are just as focused on you on getting their website to the top.

The way we like to look at it is this. Every industry is going to have a certain level of competition and say if there’s 100 websites all targeting the same keywords then there’s going to various factors from google to decide who’s getting the top page spots.
Does this mean the other 90 website’s are terrible?

It could do, but in reality, they won’t be. They could have great positions for other keywords, they could be newer, they might not even be heavily targeting that keyword, the links aren’t as good… you get the point.

Homepage SEO

Your home page is the most vital page when it comes to SEO. You want to be using the homepage as a hub for your entire website. The one thing that most website owners don’t bother to complete is a content strategy around the home page. You need the page to tell a story about your business but most importantly how your business can help the user. The home page should be a busy page too with generally over 1000 words on the page and in a lot of cases even more.

Category Page SEO

Category / service pages are what generate your website the most revenue so it’s important to have content rich pages that are going to help you get found in google. Whilst service pages are often the priority of website owners it’s important to note if you’ve got a website just offering service pages then you’re going to minimising the reach of your audience.

Posts / Blog pages

A blog is simply just content on your website that helps your audience. Here on our website we have 6 service pages associated with what we do. Our main focus is SEO but we also know from past experience that companies in need of SEO generally are in need of web design, management etc but we also have blog posts that support this content and then links to it. If we’ve got a service page with 2000 words on and a blog post which dives deeper in that subject then that’s going to be seen as a strong signal to google that your website is relevant for those keywords.

Handling Google Algorithm Updates

Google like’s to update it’s alogrithm’s quite a lot and by quite a lot we mean at least once a day. Why? Because they want searcher’s to be getting better results.

Why? Google wants to create the best user experience possible for their users, by delivering the content they need, in the fastest possible time. The best way for website’s to achieve this is by creating content & building links. When google first started, you put your keywords on your website and then you started ranking for those keywords, it was that simple. The biggest problem with this is that SEO started getting abused and used incorrectly by websites.

Manchester SEO services your businesses can benefit from…

Here’s a selection of topic we cover to help get the best from your website. It’s not always a case of just throwing money at things, we can genuinely help you develop a sustainable SEO Strategy that will help you outrank the your competitors.

Complete SEO Audits

This cover’s everything you need to know about the current SEO position of your website.

Technical SEO

The nitty gritty bits. Your website looks pretty but how does it look in the backend? Google & Bing are sending bots to your website, are they going to like what they see? Will they even be allowed to see it?

On page SEO

You don’t want to be stuffing your website with keywords. You want to be using the text, the titles, image tags on your site to help show google what your website is about. Tidy URL’s, optimised images are all parts of helping your on page SEO be the best it possibly can.

Content writing & Strategies

Content is the fuel for your website. Without content you have absolutely nothing, so it’s essential your site comes up with a content strategy. Unfortunately, your services pages aren’t just going to rank randomly, your website needs to address the questions / problems that your audience have.

Improve local Search & Nationwide search

Appearing in local search engines is easier than nationwide. Google is focused on the best user experience and if someone is searching for a plumber, realistically they are going to be wanting a plumber who is in fairly close proximity.

Desktop / Mobile / Tablet optimisation

Google now focuses on the mobile version of your website to assess how to judge your ranking performance. You need to be having a super fast website in 2020, your website has a speed score on mobile & on desktop and often the desktop score is good and the mobile score isn’t so great. If you find yourself in this position, you need to look in to ways to speed it up

Competitor Analysis

Competitor analyse is one of our preferred tasks. We absolutely love blowing your mind with all the keywords your competitors are ranking for. One time a client said “ 200,000 keywords, I didn’t know there were that many words”. Keywords are a combination of words and / or phrases that people are using to find website’s just like yours, so you may as well do your best to make sure it’s your content your audience is finding.

Increased Brand Awareness

Did you know it takes an average of around 7 times for someone to see your company name / branding before they’ll choose to go with you? This is something a lot of website owners don’t understand. Social Media can be great but it can also be a poor time waster by people who aren’t using it correctly. For new businesses brand awareness is key and your social media strategy should be all about getting your voice heard and not making sales & you can use it to target businesses around Manchester.

It's not just Google

Google now focuses on the mobile version of your website to assess how to judge your ranking performance. You need to be having a super fast website in 2020, your website has a speed score on mobile & on desktop and often the desktop score is good and the mobile score isn’t so great. If you find yourself in this position, you need to look in to ways to speed it up

1. Technical SEO issues that negatively impact SEO

Just because a website is looking pretty, doesn’t mean everything is all good and well in the backend. Things like Robots.txt and incorrectly executed redirects can all cause harm to your website.

1. We perfom content analyse

Your current website gets analysed. How’s the code? The Structure? The navigation? We check information such as this to help improve your site. Knowing the current position of your website puts us in the best position to know how to progress it.

4. We perform keyword research on your current website.

Looking at the keywords your site is currently ranking for helps us to see how we can improve those rankings and new areas to build content around helping drive traffic to your website.

5. Looking at the speed of the page

The speed of a website is largely dictated by two things. The size of your site which includes how media rich the site is and your hosting environment. You can check your site speed right now using either google page insights or tools.pingdom. The great thing about the Pingdom tool is that is show’s you exactly which files are causing your website to be slow.

6. Local SEO

Google loves consistent data. Your data needs to be the same across all the different local citation’s your website has.

7. Creating Backlinks to your website

Backlinks are the hardest part of doing SEO. In some cases, you may want to look at finding a dedicated link building specialist if your industry is super competitive but in reality building backlinks doesn’t have to be impossible. It’s made much harder by having a bad site and easier by having a great site with content that makes it hard for people not to link to.

Don’t be fooled in to getting just any backlinks though. Your backlink profile could be one reason you’re not ranking.

7. Meta Data

This means what information is being shown to the search engines. The title tag and meta description are two powerful pieces of SEO. The title tag has real SEO power with determining what the page is about.

The Meta description doesn’t directly influence the position of your website but it can dramatically help increase CTR (click through rates) to your website. So if your website is ranking third, by altering the description you can encourage more people to click on your link. If more people are clicking on your link that will tell google your page is more relevant than the websites currently occupying the top 2 positions
