Starting with a Heart-to-Heart Chat
Before all the tech stuff begins, let's get real about your business dreams and fears. When I started out, I thought SEO was all about stuffing keywords and praying to the Google gods. But, oh boy, was I wrong
What's Your Business Story?
This isn't just about selling stuff. It's about knowing who you're selling to and what they care about. My team and I, over countless coffee cups, have spent hours unraveling the tales behind businesses, just so we could tell them better.
Diving into the Keyword Pool
Remember the time you Googled "How to fix a leaky faucet?" and landed on a blog that miraculously had the answer? That's SEO, my friend.
Custom-made Keyword Lists
Every business is unique. When I started out, I'd often try out different keyword tools in my free time (yes, I'm that geeky). It’s like the time I hunted for “vintage movie posters” for my living room and discovered a plethora of terms I hadn't thought of. Keywords open doors, my friend.
Giving Your Website a Check-up
Your website is like your digital home. And just like our real homes, sometimes closets get cluttered.
That Forgotten Drawer
Remember the last time you cleaned out a drawer and found something you thought you'd lost forever? That's what a website audit feels like. And trust me, the number of times I've stumbled upon a page or a plugin that a client forgot existed is more than I can count.
Gearing Up for On-Page Magic
Think of on-page optimisation as setting the table for dinner. Everything has to be just right.
That Time I Got Lost on a Website
It happened more than once, but there's this one site I recall – a labyrinth of categories and sub-categories. My quest for a simple pair of sneakers turned into a Herculean trial. Let's ensure your site is the beacon of clarity in the vast digital sea.
Crafting Stories that Stick
Content is king, queen, and the entire court.
Creating Content that Resonates
I'll share a little secret: the best content often emerges from raw, authentic stories. Like when a client told me about their grandma's cookie recipe, and we turned it into a heartwarming blog post. It became their most shared article!
Building Bridges with Links
It's not just about making connections, but making the right ones.
Quality Over Quantity
There was this time I ambitiously reached out for links everywhere. And hey, a cat blog linking to a tech startup? Not my proudest moment. But we live and learn. Now, every link has purpose and intent.
Going Behind the Scenes with Technical SEO
This is where our nerdy glasses shine bright.
A Well-Oiled Machine
A site that loads in the blink of an eye, pages that fit perfectly on mobile screens, and a sitemap that search engines love. These behind-the-scenes tweaks may not be glamorous, but they’re game changers. Remember, even rockets need meticulous engineering.
When SEO Gets Local
Your neighbourhood can be a goldmine. And I learned this the hard way.
My Local Cafe Story
I once roamed around town, searching for a cozy cafe I'd heard about. An hour in, I realised they were just around the corner from my place, but their online presence didn't reflect their location. That's when the importance of local SEO truly hit home.
Analytics and Midnight Coffee
In the SEO world, it's all about evolution and adaptation. During the early days, I remember pulling all-nighters, armed with coffee, monitoring traffic spikes and drops. Every graph told a story. With us, your site isn't just another project; it's a tale we're invested in, from the prologue to the final chapter.
Google's always keeping us on our toes. And it's a dance we've learned to enjoy.
The Day Google Kept Its Promise
One memorable morning, a major algorithm change rolled out. Panic ensued in the SEO community. But our adherence to best practices meant our clients were not just safe, but thriving. It was a testament to playing by the rules and understanding that shortcuts seldom lead to lasting success.
