The success of your website — and your business — will almost certainly depend on where it appears in the search results.
How good are you at ranking on Google?
In most countries, ‘the search results’ means Google’s. Which means you need to be great at ranking on Google. So there’s just one chance to get it right. (Of course, there are other search engines, but they struggle for market share, and you’ll see far few visitors to your site from them).
Play by the rules and Google will generally reward you. Get caught playing outside the rules and Google will bury you. Possibly never to be seen again.
Organic SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is a game of high stakes that requires an expert fighting your corner. It would help if you had an SEO specialist who understands the rules and has been in the ring for approaching 20 years.
Grabbing the right Organic traffic
I help you get more Organic Traffic. But not any old traffic. The traffic that leads to sales, enquiries and even visits in-person to your shop, restaurant or other local business.
Your SEO efforts must be laser-focused on searches that reflect searcher intent — those being made by people who are really interested in your products or services.
But ranking for phrases with high search volume is a long-term commitment and may not help your business as much as you may expect.
I have a thing about the technical side of SEO. I believe it’s the first thing to get right. If there’s something wrong with your site or your hosting, you are probably wasting your budget and resources on content and content marketing.
Technical Audits and Content Audits
Find out how your site is performing. What’s working for you and what’s dragging you back?
If it’s a while since you built your website, a Technical Audit can:
- put your mind at rest that your website is set up correctly
- confirm that all your content can be spidered — if the search engines cannot read your content, it won’t rank
- highlight the problems that are holding you back
- assure you that you have the best plugins
- tell you if your theme is lightweight weight and fast
- examine if your site is a pleasure to read on mobile
- recommend which media can be further optimised
- confirm your sitemaps are accurate, up to date and complete
- check you have your internationalisation right
and much more.
A Content Audit tells you:
- which pages are ranking and bringing the potential customers you need
- if you are being held back by duplicate content
- if you are ranking for the searches that will bring you business
- where you can getter better results by reworking your content
- content opportunities you are missing
- If your customers are finding your product pages
Why should you have your site audited?
- If it’s more than two years since it was built
- If your search performance is consistently disappointing
- If your site is not giving the returns you’d been expecting
- If you don’t know which web pages are working for you and which are not
- If your blog posts are not supporting your business
- If you are getting errors or warnings in Google Search Console
- If you need to be sure of getting the best from your website
Your audits will give you a solid foundation for your SEO strategy and the peace of mind that comes from knowing your site is not holding your business back.
SEO Strategy for your business
How is your SEO strategy? Do you know what you’re doing with your site and why? Or are you throwing random content into the wilderness?
The hard truth of the matter is, even if that’s what you’re doing, your top competitors aren’t. They’re employing:
- Site auditing to kill their site’s shortcomings
- Key Phrase Research (some call it keyword research) to understand their customers and where their business opportunities are
- Competitor Research to know what they are aiming for
- a clear strategy that’s implemented clearly and regularly through content, digital advertising and social media campaigns
- a consistent process of publishing, measuring and making changes
If you’re going to stand a chance, you need to know exactly where you stand, set up your goals and know how to execute. Don’t waste your time.
