Below are the most common questions asked of our SEO Manchester team. If you have any further questions or would like a comprehensive SEO audit please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
Search Engine Optimisation (or 'SEO' for those of you who are in a rush) is the practice of optimising 'onsite' and 'offsite' elements of a website to improve its visibility in the organic search engine results. This could include anything from boosting a local business’ visibility in the local 'map pack' search results, or helping an online e-commerce store appear at the top of the search results for a wide range of product-related search terms.
There are a huge number of factors which can impact a website's ability to appear at the forefront of the search engine results pages. From the performance and usability of the website itself to the site's security (https) status, to the quality and quantity of content on the website, to the number of links the website has from other high-quality domains in a related niche or industry, as well as literally hundreds of other factors!
SEO is a great way to build and scale a business, and we've had countless success stories from small local businesses and established national brands who have used our expert SEO services to reap the rewards of having prominent online visibility. Typically, SEO does not include Pay-Per-Click advertising services, as this service is based on an entirely different set of rules and management practices. Luckily, we have world-class PPC managers in-house to deliver results on that front, too.
As a specialist SEO Manchester agency, our business rests on the success and sustainability of our strategies and campaigns, so rest assured that we want the absolute best for each and every one of our SEO clients!
A well developed and implemented SEO campaign is crucial for almost every kind of business in the world right now. Information on every imaginable product and service around the globe is now just a 2-second search away and now, with over 60% of all searches being conducted on smartphones, search engines are now more accessible than ever.
This goes to show just how crucial SEO is for businesses now. Having a prominent appearance at the top of the organic search results puts your product or service directly in front of those who are looking for it. Without it, a competitor is guaranteed to collect all of the additional customers who turned to Google when searching for your product or service!
Local businesses can benefit hugely from Search Engine Optimisation. A simple search for a local service in your area is certain to return a 'map pack' result, showing three local businesses along with their Google reviews rating, contact details and even their position within google maps. Users searching on smartphones can call businesses listed in the map pack directly from the search results page and even plot directions to the address using Google Maps. This is ideal for businesses looking for increased footfall traffic to their physical address. Local service providers who service customers at their home address (such as contractors and tradespeople) can also set a radius of operation too, improving their visibility and catchment area across their entire service area.
When it comes to SEO, this is truly the million-dollar question and often the frustration of many SEO agencies and their clients around the world. It's difficult to give a one-size-fits-all answer, specifically because there are so many factors and things to test, review and consider before any agency would be able to give even a rough estimate. This is why many agencies ask clients to sign-up for 12 months, giving them enough time to work on the client's site to start showing results. At Gorilla Marketing, we don't ask for 12 months, in fact, we ask for precisely half of that - just 6 months.
Not only do our clients often tell us this is incredibly refreshing and reassuring (after bad experiences with less-reputable agencies), but it shows the confidence we have in our ability to work hard and efficiently to deliver results as quickly as possible. We can't promise to have every client at the top of page 1 for every possible keyword after 6 months, but we'll work hard to show measurable growth and an increase in organic traffic as soon as we possibly can while ensuring that our strategy remains focused around sustainable growth and longevity.
In short, the answer to 'how long does SEO take to work?' is: It depends on your website. However, whatever your current state of play may be, we're confident that we'll deliver the results you're looking for more quickly and efficiently as any SEO agency could possibly hope to (hence the short 6-month commitment we ask for to deliver measurable results).
At Gorilla Marketing, we know that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' process or formula that works for every client and website. We take the time to get to know every client and their industry, as well as conducting in-depth competitor research and analysis to reveal exactly what works, and what doesn't in each particular field.
Firstly, we’ll deep-dive into all aspects of your website, highlighting and fixing any technical or usability issues that could be holding the website back in the organic search results. This could include everything from website load speed improvements to removing or repairing a number of broken pages or links. Simply put, the less the search engines identify as a potential negative user experience, the higher they are likely to rate (and ultimately rank) your site!
As many strategies rely heavily on creating and publishing high-quality informative content, we employ a number of highly-talented content writers who produce great engaging copy that clients and search engines seem to love! All of the content we create on the client's behalf is heavily researched and optimised perfectly to deliver the best-possible SEO results.
We also include a number of PR-like services as part of our SEO campaigns. These phases allow us to garner coverage and backlinks from other authoritative websites in our clients' industries, directly boosting and supporting their rankings within the search engine results pages.
For local clients, we have a specific Local SEO strategy that has worked time and time again, bringing you increased visibility in both organic search and Google’s ‘Map Pack’ results section.
