Why choose Distl For SEO?

Stinson Air & Solar

When Brad, and the team at Stinson Air & Solar came to us many years ago, they did have a lot of trust in SEO Agencies. We wanted to change that. Brad’s primary goal was always to reach the first page for “air conditioning perth”, one of the most competitive search results we have worked on. Within the first year we were able to break into the first page, now he’s on the first page for every air conditioning keyword!

Distl recently helped us create a very dynamic and engaging website. They understood our brand...and helped us create a fast, well designed and multifaceted e-commerce based site. The team were great to work with and communication was open and easy. We are stoked with the result!
Using WordPress to format and edit the Scotford Fennessy website has been a fantastic practice....The collaboration with Distl reinforces this as they provide an enlightening experience from the website development side and are very easy to use. You can continuously update information on the user-friendly interface (Dashboard, Media, Pages, etc.), which is the flexibility you need when dealing with the ever-changing nature of a company like ours. WordPress also allows you to see the impact of the information (or pages) you implement into your website design with the constant updating of the SEO score, so you can easily keep on top of what is working to draw in organic traffic. We recommend WordPress and Distl to anyone looking for an easy way to set up a very professional online representation of your Company.
It was a pleasure to deal with the team at DISTL. Jelena and the team...worked closely with us to deliver a fantastic new website for Davey Real Estate that was tailored to our marketing brief.
The DISTL team identified various avenues to increase our business reach in the golf market...for Perth. My company has seen a significant upturn in golfers in the last few months from enquiries for corporate golf events through to more players on course. The team took great initiatives to find and source opportunities including reaching out to online websites for inclusions – results were seen immediately on traffic to our website in referral sites.
The SEO team send detailed reports outlining their success and provides a great indication of ROI for the resort.
We worked with the Distl team to revitalise our aging website and bring it to...life to present our team, business, capabilities and our culture to the market. Working with the creative Distl team from our very technical team produced a great result which we are immensely proud of - Thanks Distl!
We loved working with the Distl team to rebuild our new and improved online sales...platform Seekwine. Having looked at quite a few companies around Perth and Australia we found that the service and attention Distl provided was hard to match. Branding, web and digital services were all provided and nothing went un-missed as it was important for us to get our message of Seekwine across and what it meant to us not only as a new website but as a brand. We simply love the team and love working with them!
I highly recommend the team at team at Distl for any web development and SEO...services.

BirdBrain has assisted in all of our crazy ideas and online projects to reach actual results by mapping out clear and concise plans to hit goals and targets.

Everything we have planned together has eventuated into reality and I believe this is just the start of our growth and partnership. This company is the classic example of quality, reliability and integrity and you “get what you pay for in the SEO space”.

If you are after real results, I recommend contacting the team - Keep up the good work!

Distl helped to create our SEM and SEO strategies which led to a significant increase in relevant web traffic and conversions. I would highly recommend this agency to support your growth aspirations.
Great experience with David and Hannah! We felt from day 1 they were genuine and...have always had good communication with them. We had met with other companies prior to choosing Distl which seemed to give off sneaky impressions rather than genuine efforts. Distl has helped to grow our business with the use of Google ads and we will continue to use them going forward!

Thanks Distl for getting our business & website out there to so many new clients.
Distl developed our website when we first opened our business but their expertise has not...stopped there. They have been a great asset to company with their ongoing SEO and website support along with helping us develop content to keep our website up to date and relevant. Jess from Distl has been an integral part and we appreciate all the hard work she puts in along with the rest of the team at Distl.
Love the team at Distl! They're super helpful, quick to respond and the staff are...always friendly.

Their work has lead to our business seeing a big improvement in our website & digital marketing performance, yet our costs decreased.

Thank you David -...pleasure working with you.
I can’t rave enough about Distl. Great service even when I had to say sorry...Covid is affecting my business I have to stop your service. They are still looking after me. I have gone from way down the list to number one in organic search. People that really care. Not many businesses like that any more. Really know what they are doing. Best of all the good money you spend stays in WA. Employing West Australians.
Face to face meetings. Talk the right language. What more can I say. Ring them now. Gary
Wesley College has seen very positive results since engaging Distl. The team on our account...is professional, responsive and understand our goals. Communication is regular and clear, so we all know the direction we're headed in and the steps needed to get us there.
We have tried a few digital marketing/SEO companies over the years and Distl has been...the best experience by far. They explain the technicalities to us (rather than obfuscate) and take a consistent and long-term approach to our needs.
The awesome team at Distl have taken us on a wild rebrand journey. From branding...workshops to physical refurbishment the team have been informative, supportive and fun.
Always responding quickly to any inquiries and doing everything they can to make the process smooth.
Thanks for all your help so far.
I wish to confirm that we dealt with Distl for the redevelopment of our web,...during which they have provided our business with excellent support in the areas of website engineering, search engine optimisation, Google places optimisation, web design and development. Their work has been a major factor in our website’s success with an increase of 58% in our website traffic. The design of our web was exactly in line with the brief provided. They clearly understood what our company was about and the outcome we hoped to achieve.

We have found the service of Distl to be second to none. They were extremely prompt and reliable in all aspects of our project. They explained complicated web functions and terms in a way that is easy to understand and therefore act upon.

I can confidently recommend Distl as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field.
Hooray! I have finally find the right one. 10 years in business and gone through...quite a few digital agencies who promised a lot and achieved a little. I have lost my faith in digital agencies until I came across Distl who offers non-contract service. Thumb up! David and his team are amazing. Only 2 weeks into working with them, Distl has brought our organic ranking to the 4th on google page 1 . My PREVIOUS digital agency who charges a fortune , but couldn't achieve this in 12 months. I am so impressed and super excited to see what more Distl can do for us.
Distl have been incredibly helpful getting my business off the ground. The approach was personal...and professional. They gave excellent advice all along the way and the branding has been a winner. I have had so many uber-positive comments, even from marketers who are looking at branding all day long. The SEO results have way exceeded what I could have hoped. Thanks to Dave and the team, I have a thriving business today!
A massive thanks to Distl with Dave, Jess and Jeremy for their continued help and...support for my start-up business. Not having much experience in marketing myself, the team at Distl have continued to amaze me with their knowledge and ability to nail exactly the look and feel I was wanting in communicating my business to clientele. The journey has only just started and I hope to continue this partnership with Distl for a long time to come. Can't speak highly enough. Thanks again guys!
We chose Distl after considering a few different digital companies. We have not been disappointed...by their efforts so far. Katie and David helped us with our digital options, and were able to explain everything clearly and professionally. Their willingness to travel to our office to meet with us made life so much easier for us.
We have been working with Adam at Birdbrain for a few years now. Adam has...been excellent to deal with and is always able to breakdown the technical jargon that often becomes confusing in the world of digital marketing. We highly recommend.
Distl is a very professional company that has helped our business to keep growing and...evolving in a dynamic and challenging environment. With a great team of people supporting our business. Especially Emily our account manager and Brandon senior graphic designer.
We have been very pleased with the service provided by Distl for website design and...SEO. Our account manager Ryan is exceptional at explaining technical matters clearly and concisely. I would happily recommend Distl to others.

Have been with Distl for a few years for my digital marketing and the team...are awesome. Great to work with and great ROI. Fully recommend!

What can our SEO Agency do for you?

Rob, and SEO specialist at Distl talking about clients SEO strategy with the other SEO specialists.

Our SEO specialists will improve your website’s content, design, and user experience to match customer search intent. This helps your website rank higher in search engines like Google. A strong SEO strategy will result in more organic traffic finding your business, and more customers for your business. 

With over 25 years in the industry, we have decades of proof that our SEO services are the best in Perth, shown by our 5-star reviews on Google and our ability to continually rank sites #1 on Google, year after year. Our SEO specialists are equipped with an unmatched understanding of search engines and repeatedly raise the bar for SEO success through creative SEO strategies, and tailored SEO packages.

What is seo?

Here’s the crash course

How does SEO work?

At its core, SEO is the process of making incremental improvements to a website’s content, structure, and performance.

These enhancements ensure that search engines can more efficiently crawl, understand, and index your site while also making it more accessible to users, regardless of their device or internet speed.

If you found us through Google, you likely searched for “SEO Perth” or “Perth SEO agency”, experiencing our proven SEO strategies firsthand. By employing a similar approach for your website, we can enhance its visibility, increase organic traffic, and ultimately improve your online presence, delivering positive SEO results for your business.

Why do Perth businesses need SEO?

If you’re aiming to expand your business reach organically and boost your website’s digital foot traffic, search engine optimisation (SEO) serves as the fundamental building block for all your digital marketing efforts.

When executed effectively, SEO enables you to engage with customers who previously had not heard of your brand and initiates a snowball effect in website traffic, gaining momentum with each passing day.

We are here to help you establish deep roots within the digital landscape, transforming your website into a robust foundation that allows your brand to thrive and your business to grow.

Remember, it’s not rocket science—it’s SEO. And, if we don’t deliver the results you’re after, you’re free to walk away.

What is the significance of SEO to your brand?

Effective SEO will strengthen the relationship between your business’s website and Google’s search engine (or any other search engine).

That relationship is built on trust; like a modern vouch system, in which Google only recommends your site if it trusts that your business is best for any given query. This has led to organic search results being perceived as more trustworthy, reliable, and reputable.

In industries where trust and credibility are paramount (that means all of us), your organic search ranking is of utmost importance. By prioritising SEO and optimising your website for search, you are simultaneously improving your online visibility and establishing your brand as a trusted authority in your industry.

How does SEO differ from Google Ads?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising, such as Google Ads, are two distinct digital marketing strategies that serve unique purposes.

One delivers quick wins (PPC), the other, long-term value (SEO).

Consider the analogy of renting vs buying a storefront. On one hand, there is renting (Google Ads) where you could immediately position your business in a great area, surrounded by paying customers. But the second you stop paying the lease, your business loses all foot traffic. If you were to instead purchase an old store (invest in SEO) at the end of town, renovate it and build a strong following organically over time, it might take time to build, but in the long term, you’ll have a thriving store at no extra cost. This approach also adds value to your business, should you decide to sell it in the future.

Perth SEO Services

All SEO services done in-house.

To be a leading SEO agency in Perth, you need to constantly raise to bar and uphold the highest quality standards. For this reason, we keep everything internal at our Perth office in Jolimont.

Everything from the inception of an idea, through to the moment it is published and visible to your customers is done within the walls of our agency, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Technical SEOEnsure your site is search engine friendly

Your website might look peachy, but under the hood, it could be a lemon. Our SEO experts collaborate with our web developers to guarantee your site’s code (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) is fast, crawlable, and indexable, while maintaining its visual integrity.

During the technical SEO optimisation process, your SEO specialist will make sure that:

  • Search engines can easily crawl and index your site by setting proper index and follow directives in your pages meta data.
  • Search engines are provided with clear crawling guidelines through a well-crafted robots.txt file.
  • Search engines are supplied with a comprehensive sitemap.xml file to better understand your site’s structure.
  • Your site loads quickly, with speedy server response times and optimised assets such as images.
  • Your site is mobile-friendly, particularly if the majority of your traffic comes from mobile devices.
  • Your site is free from broken links, and any necessary redirects are implemented correctly.

Local SEOBoost your business rankings on Google Maps

Looking to rank higher on Google Maps? Local SEO is the solution you need.

Perth SEO strategies differ from those in other cities due to unique local search habits. This is why engaging a local Perth SEO company is crucial to outperform your local competitors. Local SEO has rapidly become the central pillar of driving traffic through organic search results, encompassing much more than reviews and proximity.

During local SEO optimisation, your specialist will ensure that:

  • Your Google Business profile information is accurate and up-to-date.
  • Your business showcases itself professionally with high-quality images.
  • You have a well-planned strategy for requesting and managing reviews that reflect your outstanding services.
  • Your primary service offering is clearly defined and accurate.
  • Your site’s content effectively targets and addresses your local audience.
  • Your NAP (name, address, and phone number) information is consistent and correct across the web.

Keyword ResearchDiscover how customers search for your business

Curious about the number of people seeking your services online? Or perhaps you’re wondering if there’s demand for a service you don’t yet provide. Ranking for competitive keywords can significantly increase your organic traffic. Keyword research is more than meets the eye; it’s the ultimate tool for understanding and fulfilling customer needs.

Keyword research involves:

  • Identifying your business’s core services.
  • Gaining insight into how users search for your services.
  • Investigating the search volume for each individual service.
  • Determining the intent behind keywords and search queries.
  • Devising a strategy to target prioritised keywords effectively.

On-page content optimisationOptimise content for people and search engines.

Simply adding a bunch of SEO keywords to a page isn’t enough; the impact comes from understanding user intent and the psychology of your paying customers. We achieve this through extensive research into Google’s search results, examining customer interactions with your site, and conducting search phrase analysis.

During on-page optimisation your SEO specialist will:

  • Address URL and site structure.
  • Review your keyword research report to understand user intent.
  • Optimise your meta titles and descriptions for better click-through-rates.
  • Implement relevant schema (aka structured data) to assist search engines in understanding the page.
  • Create well-structured headings that address semantics with clear wording, appropriate hierarchy, and logical order.
  • Refine content to be concise and informative, and appropriately keyword dense.
  • Confirm that the implemented steps address all potential intents and objectives for users visiting your site.

Link buildingBuild authority in your industry with outreach and ethical link building.

Link building is often viewed as a dark art of SEO or a black hat strategy. However, not all link acquisition methods are the same. Your domain authority relies on high-quality backlinks and a robust network of industry directory listings. If you aren’t considering links in your SEO strategy, there should be only one reason: budget. If you are in a competitive industry and struggling to move up the ranks with the content alone, this is the missing piece of the puzzle.

Our link-building strategies involve capturing links through:

  • Natural content marketing
  • Manual outreach
  • Guest posting
  • Unlinked brand mentions
  • PR
  • Citations and directories

Conversion rate optimisation (CRO)Increase the likelihood of visitors becoming customers.

SEO doesn’t end with Google. It encompasses everything from a customer discovering you on search results to them transacting with your business, be it through purchasing a product or inquiring about your services. After all, what’s the point of ranking number one if your website can’t convert visitors into customers? CRO is about reducing friction between these points, making it a crucial step in ensuring a return on your SEO investment.

During conversion rate optimisation, your SEO specialist will:

  • Adapt content to use CTAs (Call To Action’s) more effectively.
  • Look for more ways to convert readers on all key pages.
  • Run split testing (A/B testing) to establish what works.
  • Analyse the user journey of your traffic in order to find and remove bottlenecks.
  • Optimise pages that are performing well in other areas such as popular blog posts.
  • Leveraging other marketing strategies such as remarketing through paid ads to supplement SEO strategies.

Penalty recoveryRecover lost rankings due to a Google penalty

There are two kinds of penalties; algorithmic penalties caused by changes in the way Google ranks content, and manual penalties created by Google’s manual web-spam team or Google’s human quality raters. Whether intentional or not, a breach of Google’s terms of service or an unfavourable algorithmic change can cause even the best performing sites to plummet.

Often this is caused by Blackhat SEO techniques such as keyword stuffing, hidden links, cloaking, and spammy links. Other times it is caused unintentionally by bad redirects, irrelevant keywords or content, duplicate content, or accidental de-indexation.

To get you back to where you were, we will diagnose the issue by looking at:

  • Your search console for any manual actions
  • The timeline for when you were penalised for any changes that occurred at the same time
  • Google’s news feed to identify algorithm updates that may have affected you.
  • your backlink profile for anything out of place or spammy
  • your website’s history for any ticking time bombs that were simply unnoticed until now.

Then we can dive in and do what is necessary to get you back and ranking, long term.

Content strategyWe help you find answers. Google finds those with questions.

SEO is a lot like writing a good mystery novel, it helps to work backwards.

By looking at your product or service, we can put ourselves in your customers shoes, immersing ourselves in their thoughts by looking at their online behaviour. We know what your readers want, and we help you service that want.

It all comes down to our one rule for writing content – always be helpful. This means writing fresh content no one else has written, organising content so that it can be digested easily and answering questions in a way that best serves the end user.

Opportunity analysisUncover potential business goldmines

One of the most valuable insights we have as an SEO agency is understanding what people are searching for and how often they are searching for it.

Armed with this knowledge, your smallest service could become your biggest money maker.

That is why whenever we are not helping you achieve your goals, we are helping you identify new ones. SEO is not about turning on one tap, it’s about turning on all the taps.

Our Team

Over 25 of Perth’s finest digital marketing specialists under one roof.

At Distl, we hold a diverse range of skill sets within a culture that encourages knowledge sharing and acquisition. Our experienced Perth-based SEO team is passionate about expanding and sharing their understanding of SEO as a science and exploring how it can help Perth businesses like yours generate more traffic through search.

Our Approach to SEO

Our process aligns with your business goals.

By working with Distl, you are doing more than hiring an SEO agency. We work as partners, engaging in business osmosis, where investing in us means we invest in you. We want skin in your game, we want to feel your wins, and we want you to know that your losses are ours as well. Its what makes us Perth’s best SEO company.

SEO foundationsWe position your website to face North (of your competitors’ listings).

The first stage of a long and successful relationship starts with getting to know each other.

We learn what you need through keyword research, we identify your strengths and weaknesses with our a technical audit, and we meet your friends (and enemies) through a competitive analysis.

With this information, we form a foundation so strong, that whatever we build, it stands the test of time.

Technical fixesWe get everything shipshape for a long voyage.

During the foundations stage, we identify the improvements your site needs, now it’s time to plug those holes. Often this means grabbing all the low hanging fruit that gives you a nice little boost as quickly as possible. During this stage we will often write new meta titles and descriptions, give your homepage a fresh batch of content that internally links to the rest of your site, fix broken links and 301s, install a caching solution and optimise your images to speed up your site. Once everything looks tip top and meets our standards for Google’s core web vitals, we can progress to the fun part.

Strategic marketing alignmentYou define your objectives; we find our key results. We become a team.

One thing we have learned over the years is that you cannot kick goals without goal posts, and no one wins if you don’t keep score. That’s why, during the initial stages of our SEO service, we meet to discuss your growth expectations for your business and how we will know when we have met those expectations.

During this stage of our SEO process, we use a system we devised internally called ‘OKRs’ (Objectives and Key Results) to guide our collaboration.

Targeted onsite SEO optimisationWe turn your content into something Google is proud to recommend.

Think of Google like a stranger recommending your business. To do so, it must first understand what your business does and which services you offer.

Onsite optimisation is the process of clearly explaining your business to Google through well-written content, formatted in a way that can be easily read and understood by your users.

During this step we will carefully structure your sitemap, format your content, refine your headings, and ensure that Google shouts your name from the top of the search results.

Ongoing link buildingWe tell the world about your business and Google notices.

If there is one thing to understand about SEO, it’s that we are convincing a robot that you are the best at what you do. The way this robot (Googlebot) quantifies what “the best” is, can be tied to the following qualities…Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trustworthiness (E.E.A.T.). AKA your online reputation.

That’s why in this step of our SEO process, we signal to Google that we possess each of these qualities, which spreads your industry knowledge around the internet in return for a reference (link). Each link you get, the more likely you are to be suggested in search results.

Content strategyWriting blogs because “it’s good for SEO” is not strategy. This is a strategy.

The art of blog writing is deeper and more challenging than freelancers make it out to be. It’s more than mindlessly pumping out blogs without reason. We treat blog writing as a way of establishing topical relevance and proving to your audience and Google that you as expert. This means conducting audience analysis for pain points and questions, analysing your keyword research reports and mapping content to fill gaps in your reach.

Once we have everything in order, we begin creating memorable, helpful, and engaging content that speaks to your audience. We distribute it where and when necessary, so it gets in front of the right people, and we follow it up with close monitoring to make sure we are on the money.

SEO really is a science.

Advanced analytics and trackingAnalytics is the best way to gain insight into the impact SEO is having on your site’s performance. It also keeps us accountable.

SEO is a technical field, making it challenging to gauge how your website rankings respond to our strategies. Fortunately, we track offsite performance through keyword rankings and onsite performance via our custom Google Analytics 4 setup. This allows you to monitor everything we accomplish.

With this data, we report both successes and setbacks, enabling you to assess our performance and your return on investment. Effective communication is the key to any successful SEO campaign.

To track your traffic accurately and effectively, our SEO specialists will:

  • Install essential tracking tools like Google Analytics 4 using a custom Google Tag Manager setup.
  • Develop useful and custom reports that reveal how and how often your users interact with your site (such as form submissions, phone calls, or emails).
  • Provide you with monthly reports that detail your website’s performance, over time, so you can stay informed about its progress.

Our Ethos

We have values you can get behind.

It comes down to our simple set of principles that guide our proven SEO process, helping us to develop what we believe to be an agency-business relationship, unlike anything you will have experienced.

Start with empathy.

Listen harder. Find the insight that unlocks value.

One thing that separates Distl from other Perth SEO companies is that we do not have a sales team. We are not in the business of convincing, we are in the business of understanding. From our first meeting, we want to listen to our client’s unique needs and begin delivering tailored, results-driven SEO solutions that foster sustainable growth and success inbound links.

Play the long game.

Quick wins are good, but we focus on the big picture.

Our SEO strategies will never prioritise speed over sustainability. Instead, our approach to SEO is closely tied to the direction your business is growing, we want to synergise with your efforts and create long-lasting success through strategic optimisation and compounding results.

Be an open book.

Wins and losses, there’s nothing to hide.

Our agency model relies on strong communication both ways, with information openly shared between us. That means the challenges and successes of our SEO campaigns are talked about equally so that we know when to celebrate and when to elaborate. We want to work with you to harness the power of search, through ups and through downs.

Less, but better.

Keep it simple but not stupid.

At Distl, we focus on high-impact SEO objectives and data-driven results, sifting through an ocean of possibilities for the one that will make a difference to your bottom line. It’s goal setting as you have never seen it, with clear simple objectives that mean something to your business. This means we do not focus on a keyword unless it will lead to more business.

Push the boundaries.

Explore the possibilities, dive deeper.

At Distl, our Perth SEO specialists believe in pushing the boundaries to unlock the full potential of your online presence. We go beyond standard practices and delve deeper into innovative strategies that cater to your specific needs. Our commitment to exploring new possibilities allows us to develop customised SEO solutions that propel your business towards growth and success.

Continuously improve.

Pursue excellence, seek better ways.

Distl’s Perth SEO team is dedicated to the pursuit of continuous improvement. We recognise that there is always room for growth and advancement in the ever-changing digital landscape. By maintaining a proactive approach and staying informed about the latest SEO trends, we ensure that our strategies remain innovative and effective.

SEO FAQs

What results can I expect and how long will it take to see improvements?

It is important to understand that SEO is a medium to long-term strategy. While it is possible you may start seeing ranking and organic traffic improvements within the first 1-3 months, achieving more meaningful results often takes 6-12 months or longer. The key thing to note is that effective SEO will see results constantly grow, compounding with every ranking improvement.

The speed of results is affected by the competitiveness of your industry and the quality of your SEO fundamentals when we start work (content quality and quantity, domain metrics, website age, technical issues etc).

In time, as we address all the core SEO factors and progress with our SEO roadmap, you will see increasing ROI from your SEO investment.

How much does SEO cost?

We quote each SEO campaign based on 5 main factors:

  • Objectives. The loftier your SEO goals, the more work and therefore cost.
  • History. What’s your SEO legacy? If there is a history of dubious SEO tactics, we will need to put in extra work to undo the damage.
  • Geography. SEO for a local market, like Perth, requires less work than SEO for an international market. And less work means lower costs.
  • Competitiveness. The more competitive your industry (the more brands competing for your SEO search terms), the harder it is to dominate. We’ll get you there, but it will require more work.
  • Diversity. If you have one product or service, then SEO will require less work. But if you have a wide range of products or services, all requiring SEO focus, it is going to cost more.

Our rates are determined by the specific needs and goals of your business. We believe our responsibility is to deliver value to our clients through tailored strategies that align with their objectives and budget. Our approach emphasises ever growing results and return on investment over the long term.

What industries or niches do you specialise in?

In more than 20 years working in SEO we have gained experience and expertise in every industry and niche. Rather than limit our work to specific industries, we take the time to understand your unique business landscape and apply our knowledge and processes to create effective SEO strategies to deliver on your specific goals.

Currently we work with businesses in categories including:

  • Building
  • Air conditioning
  • Education

How do you handle SEO for local businesses and multi-location companies?

While the fundamental SEO approach is the same, we will apply particular attention to optimising Google My Business listings, managing local citations, and creating localised content to target specific geographic areas. We understand the importance of local visibility and tailor our strategies to meet the unique needs of businesses targeting local markets.

Some of the other factors that influence Local SEO include:

  • Reviews. The volume, diversity, and rate of first-party and third-party customer reviews. In recent years, reviews have had an increased influence on local SEO performance.
  • Business information. Does your website include consistent NAP (Name, Address, Phone) details, have location in titles etc.
  • Links. Do inbound links to your website feature anchor text with your location, does your website have strong domain and page authority from a volume of quality sites?
  • Citations. Quality, quantity and consistency of directory listings.
  • Engagement. How long your visitors stay on your site, click through rates, bounce rates, mobile click to calls etc.

Clearly many of these factors cross over with a broader SEO strategy. Wherever it is relevant, our SEO services will include a focus on local SEO.

How do you ensure that your SEO practices are ethical and follow search engine guidelines?

We are committed to adhering to search engine guidelines and using ethical, white-hat SEO techniques. Our focus on best practices ensures that your website’s rankings and visibility will not be negatively impacted by any risky tactics.

What tools and technologies do you use for SEO analysis and implementation?

Our team uses industry leading SEO tools and technologies for keyword research, analytics, backlink analysis, site audits, and other essential tasks. These tools help us identify areas for improvement and effectively implement optimisation strategies.

Some tools we use include:

  • Ahrefs
  • SE Ranking
  • Google Search Console
  • Google Analytics 4
  • Agency Analytics
  • Monday
  • Surfer SEO
  • Semrush
  • Screaming Frog
  • Majestic

How do you integrate SEO with other digital marketing efforts, such as content marketing, social media, and PPC?

We believe in creating cohesive digital marketing strategies that incorporate SEO, content marketing, social media, and other relevant channels. By aligning these efforts, we can maximise the impact of your overall online presence and drive better results.

Will google Ads benefit from a good SEO strategy?

Strong SEO fundamentals such as a quality user experience, a fast-loading website and well optimised content will improve the ROI of your PPC campaigns. These factors also benefit conversion rate and increase sales on eCommerce sites.

Can you provide references or testimonials from satisfied clients?

In addition to our Google reviews, you can contact us for testimonials and referees you can speak with, some of whom have worked with us for more than 10 years. We have a strong record of delivering positive results for our clients and our expertise, professionalism, and commitment to success has helped businesses across most industries achieve their digital marketing goals.

How does your onboarding process work for new clients?

Onboarding for new clients typically involves an initial consultation to discuss goals and needs, followed by a website audit to identify areas for improvement. We then work together to set achievable objectives and develop a tailored SEO strategy that aligns with your business goals.

What happens if my website does not achieve the desired results or rankings within the expected period?

If our results do not align with agreed expectations, we will thoroughly review our strategies and make any necessary adjustments to improve performance. You will never be held by contract to our agency, and you are free to leave if you are unsatisfied.

While we do not offer guarantees or performance-based arrangements, we are committed to working collaboratively with our clients to address any challenges and achieve long-term success.

What’s domain authority, and why does it matter?

Domain Authority (DA) is a metric originally developed by Moz to reflect a websites likelihood of ranking high in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Page).

Every website has a Domain Authority, a score between 1 and 100 representing the quantity and quality of backlinks pointing to if from external sites as well as a range of other factors. The score is logarithmic, meaning it is harder for a site to improve its score the higher the number gets.

The higher your website’s score – relative to your competitors’ – the easier it becomes to secure and maintain high rankings in Google’s search results. Building domain authority is a fundamental indicator of a good SEO strategy.

One of the most important aspects of our ongoing SEO work is earning quality inbound links from websites that are relevant to your industry niche. The best links should be reflective of the value that your website brings to its audience, resulting in relevant websites naturally linking to your site.

As with Google search rankings, Domain Authority can regularly fluctuate. It’s more important to track its progress over the long term than to monitor day to day.

Will blog posts be part of my SEO strategy?

If it makes sense for you, yes. Blog posts are just one SEO tactic and may not always be an effective way to spend your SEO budget.

That is why we’ll create a custom SEO strategy for you. It may be that blog articles are a good option. And if they are, you can rest assured we will research and write them, so you know they will be quality posts that will add tangible value – no outsourcing to overseas writers here.

How do you measure SEO success?

You can read about the key metrics we use to measure performance here, with the most important ones being:

  • Growth in organic search engine traffic
  • Growth in search engine traffic per page
  • Growth in search engine traffic per keyword
  • Growth in conversions from search engine traffic
  • Growth of search engine traffic for supporting pages that are assisting conversions.

While SEO metrics are critical, we also need to align our work with your business goals. Whether that’s revenue targets, new clients, geographic expansion, or enquiries it is important we establish clear and meaningful goals so we can stay focussed on achieving them.

Our SEO roadmap is built around monthly, quarterly, and annual targets and milestones. And as part of that process, our team in Perth will track a host of metrics. But at the end of the day, we will measure success the same way you do – by your business and bottom-line goals.

ROI: How can I measure the return on my SEO investment?

Measuring ROI is different depending on the business model. For example, a common eCommerce ROI calculation is (Profit – Investment) / (Investment x 100) = Return on Investment. On the other hand, a B2B business with a long sales process and multiple contributors to conversion will require a more tailored calculation. Either way, we will work with you to ensure we measure and track meaningful SEO metrics to put an ROI figure on your SEO.

We will look at everything, from the value of your transactions and the lifetime value of each client, through to traffic quality, quantity, and conversion rates. And we will walk you through our ROI calculations.

How many SEO keywords should I focus on?

Not all SEO keywords or search terms are equal, so it is not just a case of ‘How many?’, it is important to focus on ‘Which ones?’ While short, high-profile keywords (e.g., ‘Plumber’) might seem more valuable, they often are less likely to convert and therefore deliver commercial value.

When deciding on a keyword strategy, we’ll consider factors like:

  • The value of longer tail keywords (eg ’emergency plumber near me’) which may better reflect user intent but have lower search volume
  • How competitive keywords are, and therefore how likely we will be able to achieve ranking in a realistic timeframe.

We’ll work with you to identify the terms and topics that are most relevant and useful, given your unique situation and objectives – the ones that will deliver the biggest bang for your SEO buck.

What’s user experience (UX) and what has it got to do with SEO?

User experience is (surprise, surprise) the experience a user has when they visit your site. When users can easily navigate your site, when they enjoy or engage with your content, when they do not have to wait eons for your site to load, then you have an enjoyable experience (or good UX).

Do you expect me to sign an SEO contract?

No way. We do not believe in contracts. We believe you should be able to walk away if we are not meeting your expectations. That is how confident we are in our SEO specialists, tactics, and strategies.

So, if, for any reason, you are not satisfied with the progress we are making or the SEO results we deliver, just tell our team in Perth that you want to call it quits before the start of the next month.
