Technical SEO, all the cool kids are doing it...

Search engines don’t see your site in the same way we do (they don’t have eyes for a start…), but just like looking at a badly drawn map, if you don’t help guide Google through your website’s codebase, it won’t know how or where to rank you.

Between missing markup, rogue redirects, incorrect indexing and malign manual-actions, there’s a whole host of technical problems that could be seriously damaging your websites ranking ability, even with an amazing content or link-building strategy.

We love letting our technical whizkids off the leash to delve deep and optimise your website’s code to be search engine friendly – naturally boosting performance and building the supporting infrastructure for further optimisations.

Sheriff Google

Content ain't just King, it’s Galactic Emperor of SEO

Way back when SEO’s had less morals than a Wild West bandito, building torrents of backlinks and thin content was a quick way to win. Thankfully good ol’ Sheriff Google showed up and send those scoundrels packing. Nowadays the best SEO is derived from value-driven, highly informative, and engaging content.

From hitting even more keywords and queries, keeping users on your site longer, moving them through the purchase funnel, to upselling and educating them on your product. Placing a focus on producing content that appeals to your audience, captures their (ever decreasing) attention spans and answers their questions about your business in detail has near endless SEO benefits.

Supported by detailed keyword-research, query analysis and understanding our clients’ audiences, we’ve produced content pieces that drive thousands of site visits month-on-month, and tonnes of juicy backlinks.

The Missing (Back)Link

Even with the rapid evolution of search, backlinks still contribute humongous value within any SEO strategy. A sign of authority and trust in your website, a well designed, high-value backlink profile is super important to achieving top rankings for your most valuable queries. Our team has extensive experience constructing valuable, relevant, and diverse backlink profiles for our clients from authoritative sources through unique creative methods.

On the other side of the coin, it’s also possible to have extremely detrimental links pointing to your site, sending very wrong signals to search engines. Our link profiling process also involves removing these negative links to encourage better growth – think of it as pruning your SEO bonsai.
