Why is SEO important to your business?

For most businesses, organic search represents a huge potential channel of inbound enquiries. This is why Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the backbone of so many businesses’ digital marketing mix.

Unlike PPC, which is reliant on a budget to drive clicks and traffic, organic SEO strategies have lastability and can help you establish a strong brand presence across hundreds or even thousands of search terms.

Investing in it isn’t always cheap but the rewards over the long term can be huge.

The question you should be asking yourself, therefore, is can you afford not to invest in SEO?

We are your SEO experts in Bristol

Competing with so many other websites for a position on page one of the search engine results pages isn’t easy. Many companies try to do it themselves, but more often than not find themselves falling down at the first hurdle.

This is because SEO is a mix of disciplines and requires the kind of expertise that can’t be picked up in a few weeks or months. With constant algorithm updates, the SEO landscape is forever shifting, meaning strategies need to adapt constantly to remain effective.

By working with an established and reputable SEO agency like Superb Digital, you can start driving more traffic to your site, storm ahead of the competition in the search results and grow your business.

Be Found. Be Superb

At Superb Digital, we just love geeking out about SEO. Drop us a message and tell us a bit about your business and we’ll give you a call back for a chat.

    Our approach to successful organic SEO

    Step 1 Discovery

    Exemplary SEO requires effective communication. It’s why we always begin by asking questions in order to understand your business, your unique selling points and the problems you solve for your clients. We’ll use this initial consultation to explain our process in more detail as well and establish goals and KPIs so we can track and measure the ongoing progress of your campaign.

    Step 2 Website Audit

    A website audit has several functions, but in short it allows us to uncover any issues which could be a barrier to your ongoing search performance. These can include technical, content and backlink issues. We can either fix these issues ourselves or work with your in-house team or web developer. As part of your website audit we will also conduct competitor research.

    Step 3 Keyword Research

    The keyword discovery phase determines the best non-brand terms to optimise your website to capture the most relevant traffic likely to turn into customers. The results form the framework for both the on-page content optimisation and the blog content and guides we’ll create to position you as a thought leader and go-to source in your area of expertise.

    Step 4 On-Site Optimisation

    Also known as on-page optimisation, this is a continual process of optimisation and refinement across your entire website. We’ll establish your key ‘landing pages’ and use various tools to measure and analyse the impact of our changes to these pages on your search engine rankings. We’ll then use this feedback for further improvement, constantly monitoring and optimising to ensure your website continues to deliver traffic and enquiries.

    Step 5 Content Creation

    Based on our keyword research and also your own input, we’ll create a content plan and begin producing a regular flow of authoritative, relevant and shareable on-site content. This could be in the form of overhauling existing pages like your homepage or product/service pages or creating completely new pages, blog articles and ‘cornerstone content’.

    Step 6 Link Building

    As well as creating the necessary on-site signals to improve your search presence, we’ll also look to build off-site signals as well. This primarily takes the form of link building which we do through a combination of tactics, including publishing content on highly relevant websites and blogs in order to link back to key pages and blog posts on your website. The compound effect of this content distribution and link building will help establish page and site authority and position you in front of new audiences.

    Step 7 Reporting

    As we’ve said above, communication is key to great SEO, which is why we make it a priority to keep you in the loop on progress and also the challenges ahead by providing you with regular reports. These will detail the previous month’s activities and their impact on rankings, organic search traffic and goals achieved. We’ll also set out the plan for the month ahead and how you can play a part.

    SEO Glossary

    SEO FAQs

    What is SEO?
    FAQs

    SEO (search engine optimisation) describes the process by which the authority and relevance of your website is increased for particular search queries (keywords).

    Search engines want to show users the best and most authoritative pages for their searches. SEO is about building your brand online and demonstrating you are the go-to authority for your products or services.

    Over time you will see increased rankings for your website and an increase in traffic and sales or enquiries.

    How does SEO work?
    FAQs

    There are 5 core signals that we influence to improve search engine optimisation. Content, Technology, Backlinks, Social Signals and User Signals. It’s not enough to just have the right keywords in the right places anymore. You need to develop great content that is genuinely useful and that people want to read and share.

    The keywords you select and optimise for will have a huge impact on the success of your SEO campaign. Start off with keywords that are too competitive and your campaign may be too time-consuming and costly to be realistic. Choose keywords that don’t have enough search volume and when you do rank top of Google you won’t get a return in the form of sales and enquiries.

    Your website and content need to be promoted in order to increase backlinks. Where another website links to yours. This is like a “vote of confidence” in your website and content. Not all backlinks are equal, whilst it is important to have backlinks from a variety of different websites; spending time on developing links from high-quality relevant websites is the ultimate goal.

    Ensuring your website works and loads quickly across multiple devices and reviewing how visitors engage and use your website allows us to constantly refine our approach and gives you the broadest possible visitor appeal. Search engines are looking at all of these factors and will reward websites that offer great value to their visitors with higher rankings in the search engine results.

    Do I need SEO?
    FAQs

    There are very few businesses that could not benefit from SEO. But SEO can be different for different types of business.

    An SEO campaign for a small business looking for local customers will be very different from a campaign for a well-known brand with a large website. The former will likely have very little traffic to start with and will need to build authority through content and backlinks whilst a large brand website will probably have a lot of traffic already and so it’s a case of looking for opportunities to improve traffic even further – through the targeting of new keywords and utilising Google’s rich results.

    How much does SEO cost?
    FAQs

    Good SEO is not cheap or quick so it’s important to have a good understanding of your end goals and core business information such as the lifetime value of a new customer.

    Knowing this information means you can set and maintain a realistic budget. One you can afford and one that’s going to get you results.

    The single biggest reason that SEO “fails” is that people give up too soon. They have unrealistic expectations of how quickly things will happen and of exactly what’s involved to get a coveted top spot.

    Is it worth paying for SEO?
    FAQs

    You don’t have to. If you have the time and inclination you could do it yourself. However, SEO is very specialist and there are no courses that “teach” you SEO beyond the basics and theory. When you pay for SEO you’re buying the expertise and experience of an SEO agency or an SEO consultant.

    It’s from that experience that an SEO expert can diagnose what’s required to get your website ranking and improve its traffic. They’ll be up to speed on the latest search engine developments that your business can capitalise on.

    SEO is not always straightforward and an experienced SEO company will have plenty of tactics in case things don’t go according to plan or if an update sets you back.

    They’ll also be transparent enough to keep you in the loop.

    Why work with an SEO agency?
    FAQs

    An SEO agency is a digital marketing company who specifically optimise websites to increase its “online visibility”. This means that more people will see the website, generally speaking, whilst using a search engine, such as Google or Bing. The end result of being found online more easily means more relevant website traffic and more sales or leads – depending on what your goal is.

    This can be done by either in the “organic or natural results ” (those without a little AD symbol) or by using PPC or pay-per-click, these will be the results at the very top of the search results.

    For an SEO agency to carry out their work effectively you’ll need to have a good idea of several things. Such as, your target market, the services or products you offer, what makes them and you unique and the value of a customer to your business.

    An SEO agency will have staff with varied skills, such as marketing strategy, web development, copywriting, link building to name just a few and whilst SEO is not rocket science the mix of skills and experience a serious SEO agency will have at its fingertips makes them invaluable to both business owners and marketing managers.

    When is the right time to speak to an SEO agency?
    FAQs

    SEO is almost certainly more beneficial when it’s built into a project from the ground up, but that’s not to say the search engine rankings of an existing website cannot be greatly improved with expert SEO help.

    In other words, it makes sense to talk to us before you start building your website but it’s not a prerequisite. Speaking to an SEO company prior to or during your website’s design and construction can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

    Many web designers have a poor to average understanding of SEO and will focus too much on aesthetics and not enough on delivering an optimised website that people can actually discover online.

    Understanding what visitors want from your website and what will help convert them into clients and customers is key to your website’s success at the end of the day.

    How do I choose the right SEO agency?
    FAQs

    This is an excellent question and one that requires a fairly detailed answer, so check out this blog How to choose the right SEO agency for you.

    But to summarise, it’s about the experience, in-house or outsourcing, regular communication, realistic expectations and goals.

    Obviously, watch out for totally under or overpriced services. If it seems too good to be true then it probably is. In the same vain watch out for over-promise. These are tactics used by some companies to win your business then only a few months later you realise you’re not getting any results.

    Do you have a minimum contract term?
    FAQs

    We will always be realistic with how long SEO takes and when you can expect to start seeing results. That being said, we don’t believe in tying our customers into a fixed-term contract. When you sign up you’ll be on a rolling contract and if for any reason you want to cancel then you just need to give us two month’s notice. This is because we will plan content and conduct outreach activity for several weeks in advance. Of course, the onus is on us to make sure you’re happy and receiving value from our SEO services.

    Do you guarantee SEO results?
    FAQs

    We can’t guarantee the top spot or a particular position for a particular search term on Google (and any SEO agency that does is telling porky pies). However, we will give you a frank and honest estimate of what can be achieved within your timescales and budget based on our experience and the data available to us. We believe our results speak for themselves and most of our clients that don’t have any existing page 1 rankings will achieve them within 6 months. Then it’s a case of moving the website toward the top half of page 1.

    We don’t just measure rankings, however. We look at a number of key performance indicators (KPIs) such as the volume of organic traffic to your website, contact form completions and revenue generated. This data taken together gives us a more complete picture of performance than a fixation on rankings data alone. We track this data and report trends to determine whether the campaign is a success and how to keep making consistent improvements.

    How long will it take to see results from your SEO services?
    FAQs

    This depends on a whole host of factors including how old your website is, whether you’ve had SEO performed previously, the competitiveness of the keywords you want to optimise for and your budget. Once we have established these things, we’ll give you a schedule of works at the outset of the campaign and regular monthly reports so you can see how your website is performing as the campaign progresses. We’ll agree on KPIs with you upfront and these will be measured and benchmarked against.

    The clients we work with that have very little search presence have all achieved page 1 rankings on key search terms within 6 months.

    Can I speak to some of your clients?
    FAQs

    Yes, absolutely. We have a number of digital marketing and SEO clients who will be more than happy to talk to you to discuss, not only the results we’ve been able to achieve but also how they find working with us.

    How do I know my SEO is working?
    FAQs

    Speak to your agency and read the reports they send you. If you’re not sure of anything, ask them. Or get a second opinion. A decent SEO agency will explain things so you understand them and will show you month on month and year on year results

    As we’ve said SEO is not quick and so your early reports will have lots of actions completed and probably not a huge amount of page 1 results. Look at medium and long term trends in rankings, traffic and revenue/leads.

    If traffic is increasing but that’s not leading to more sales and leads then there could be something wrong with your website or it’s content. Speak to your agency and if they haven’t already they can put a plan into action to solve it.

    Is SEO dead?
    FAQs

    We hear this one all the time. In our experience, the answer is no. It’s just evolving. SEO today is very different from what it was 15 years ago. There are some aspects which have and always will be important, such as your website’s content and links. But search engines over time have changed the weighting they give to certain elements and they’ve even introduced new features or technology such as featured snippets, rich results and voice search.

    So long as people need to search for things online there will always be search engines and whilst there are always search engines there will always be a benefit to being easily found for the services and products you offer.

    What’s the difference between Organic SEO and Paid Search (PPC)?
    FAQs

    The paid search results are always identified by a green AD symbol below the advertiser’s blue link. For most competitive searches, there are usually four paid results at the top of Google’s search results. The organic listings appear below these, sometimes with a map or ‘local pack’ if the search query has local intent. To appear in the paid search results a Google Adwords account and campaign is required. To rank within the organic listings you need a website with relevant content. To rank well you’ll need amazing content and good quality backlinks.
