What is Search Engine Optimisation?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is defined by Wikipedia as “the process of improving the quality and quantity of website traffic to a website or a web page from search engines.  SEO targets unpaid traffic (known as “natural” or “organic” results) rather than direct traffic or paid traffic”.

Great SEO should provide your business with the opportunity to increase sales via growth – it isn’t just about increasing your rankings. It is about increasing the rankings for keywords that will deliver measurable results to YOUR business.  We make sure that your potential customers will see your website in Google!

How we deliver and plan our SEO services

1

Business Needs Analysis

It is crucial that we conduct a workshop with our team and yours to fully understand your position in the market, your target market and your key product/service offerings.

2

Keyword Research

The next stage is comprehensive keyword research. We are not just looking for the keywords with the highest search volume, we also analyse the level of competition and the search intent of the keyword to develop an overall “attractiveness score”

3

Competitor Research

Once we have a comprehensive keyword research report, we then conduct a competitor analysis to identify which competitors are ranking well for the attractive keywords. These competitors will provide us with a good benchmark for our SEO efforts

4

Keyword Mapping

We then “map” the attractive keywords to the most relevant web pages on the website

5

Content Development opportunities report

Often there are a number of attractive keywords that do not have a relevant web page so we then develop a Content Development opportunities report. This report will guide the content strategy for the development of new web pages and/or new blog posts

6

Develop the SEO Plan

Once all this is completed, we then provide you (and our SEO Team) with a clear plan for the allocation of resources for your SEO

SEO FAQs

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation.

In layman’s terms – it means improving your website and its online presence so you appear higher in Google’s (and other search engine) organic rankings. By appearing higher in Google you’ll give your website the chance to receive more traffic that is relevant to your products or services.

It involves taking steps to improve your website’s on-page, off-page and technical ranking factors.

An SEO agency like Business Assist will work with you to optimise your on-page, off-page and technical SEO to improve your organic rankings.

It’s important to work in conjunction with an SEO agency to make sure that not only does your website traffic increase, but your conversions increase. As the goal is an increase in relevant traffic, i.e. potential customers, not just an increased volume in traffic.

If you’re asking this question, then yes.

Unless you have the world’s most niche website (like selling tassel umbrellas for pet frogs to hold for Instagram pictures) you’re going to have competitors. If you have competitors, then you’ll want to be in position #1 on Google’s organic rankings to make sure your website receives the most traffic.

99% of Google’s traffic doesn’t go beyond the first page. So if you’re ranking on page 2+ on Google, you’re losing more traffic than you could possibly imagine.

An SEO guarantee is a snake-oil salesman’s best friend.

There are 2 major factors that mean NO agency can guarantee any SERP rankings:

  • Google is a moveable feast – it changes regularly and doesn’t always stick to its own guidelines
  • Depending on your keywords, competition can be fierce. If you want to be in position #1 of Google for “Electrician” there is a hell of a lot of work to do. You could be competing against websites with decades behind them, impeccable optimisation and hundreds of thousands of high-quality backlinks. An agency that guarantees to get you to the top of Google for keywords is misleading you about how SEO works, or they’re utilising ethical practices that could lead to problems down the road.

At Business Assist we will work with you and provide SEO recommendations from in-house SEO Strategists. We implement industry best practice and supply thorough and comprehensive reporting on the progress of your rankings. We highlight what that means in terms of traffic, but more importantly what that means for conversions and your ROI.

Black hat SEO is a term to describe unethical practices in the SEO industry, such as keyword stuffing, hidden text, cloaking and link networks.

Black hat techniques are against Google’s webmaster guidelines and if caught using them, you could be heavily penalized by Google.

That’s not how we do business.

At Business Assist we always follow Google’s guidelines including high-value content, keyword research and a well-optimised site.

SEO is a long-term marketing tool. It typically takes 3+ months to see the effects of initial SEO implementation but it’s a long-term strategy that your site should be consistently improving. There isn’t 1 fix to your site that will create a permanent page 1 ranking in Google – there will always be updates and optimisations required.

As we mentioned above, Google changes its algorithm and guidelines regularly. By working with us on your SEO we can make adjustments and recommendations based on the latest guidelines and our experience across thousands of websites.

That depends on your resources.

We have a team of in-house developers that can update your website for you, if that’s a service you would require. We also have clients who can and prefer to make changes to their own websites.

But, yes, in all SEO clients we will require on-page updates, such as content, internal links and potentially speed upgrades.
