SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation is the technique of making websites rank high in the major search engines natural results (not to be confused with the paid adverts) for phrases that are important and relevant to your business, for example a “Plumber in London” or a “Florist in Southampton” would want their website to be on page one of Google, Yahoo and Bing when people search for this and related phrases to help them get more new business from being found by potential customers online.
SEO is all about making the search engines trust a website, in essence, the more a search engine trusts and likes a site, the higher it will place it in the search results. Gaining trust is achieved by building up momentum from making websites as search engine friendly as possible, and carrying out other SEO work such as writing and publishing new content, building new links from related websites and making on-site changes to code and on-page content.
When you decide to go ahead with the SEO campaign we take payment for the first month at the start, most of our clients pay by debit or credit card, but you can also do a bank transfer or a PayPal payment, following this we will send an invoice monthly with your keyword ranking report.
It varies depending on what keywords you want to get onto page one of Google for and the level of competition for the phrases as to the amount of time and resources that will need to be put into a campaign, please complete the website SEO review form at the top of this page and we will come back to you with a proposal and cost, we will usually come back to you within two hours during normal office hours, otherwise it will be the next day.
At the start of a campaign we spend time researching the best keywords for your business to appear on page one of Google for, it is vital to have a list that we are confident we can get on page one of Google and you are happy will put your website in front of the right audience.
The number of keywords/phrases we can target varies depending on a number of factors, including the size of the website, but as a guide, we usually target between 20-50 keywords/phrases.
We don’t make any changes that your visitors will see (unless you ask us to), all the changes we make are designed to make the site as search engine friendly as possible, usually we will change things like meta titles, meta descriptions, sitemaps, Robots.txt, internal linking, image tags and any content that needs rewriting (we would consult you about this first), in addition we like to have a news or blog area on the site to publish the new content/articles we will write for you (all content is approved by you before being published to the site).
Our aim is to get your website ranking well in Google and the other search engines, this in turn should improve your visitor numbers, enquiry levels and sales/orders, we hope to grow your business and show you an excellent return on your investment in SEO.
As the results don’t come overnight it is important to view SEO as a slightly longer term marketing strategy, it makes sense to initially allow around three months to measure the results and success, from there you can take a view as to whether you continue or whether we adapt the strategy and keywords we are targeting, if you want to stop, you can, at any time, without any charges or penalties.
No, we don’t have any contracts or other tie ins, if you want to stop, you can, at any time, without penalty. We want our clients to stay with us because they are happy with the results we are achieving for them, not because they are trapped in a contract they can’t get out of.

Some SEO companies do adopt such measures to quickly get their clients to the top of Google SERPs, but you should remember that websites that adopt such measures do not get away with it. Sooner or later, Google will identify the websites and penalize them, so it is better to stay away from any such companies which follow illegal tactics.
