Good News!

We have created a handy checklist to make sure your website can be found.

Local SEO

Local SEO is making sure your address is known to Google so your site can be delivered if people search for your service in your area. Because we are based in Hastings, we make sure we are known as Hastings Website Designers and a Hastings Marketing Company.

Why is this important? Well, Google wants to present the most relevant results to their clients. If you search for ‘pizza delivery’ you would want the results to show pizza restaurants in your area and this also applies to people searching for your business.

Our SEO Stages

When we start SEO work for your website, we ask for a minimum 6-month commitment. This is because slow and steady wins the race as far as SEO goes and you can’t complete all the work in 1 month.

We start by analysing your site to see how it currently ranks and then we put an SEO plan together. This is likely to start with ensuring that your on-page content is as good as it can be. We will check the titles are correct and that the page content is relevant. There’s no point in sending people to your site if it doesn’t make sense when they arrive.

The next step would be increasing the relevance of your site by adding in a blogging schedule or landing page creation strategy using a silo structure.

Updating and adding pages to your website is key for SEO as it increases the number of pages Google will index and it allows you to have a regularly updated site so that Google knows you are still alive! If you haven’t updated your website in 2 years, how is Google meant to know you are still in business?

Once this process is complete, we’ll look at increasing the number of links back to your site. It is important to note that the days of dodgy backlinks are long gone. We use Directory Citations and we also try to get other relevant blogs or pages to provide a link back to your content.

If you want to check your current Google ranking, we have provided details in this blog post.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do?

We start by looking at your website and working with you to get the best out of it. On-page SEO is the starting block of any SEO campaign. This includes ensuring the site loads fast, the correct keywords are used, H1 tags are set correctly, Image Alt tags are set up and title meta tags are optimised. Once this is set up we can look at stage 2.

What's Next?
This is where we look at additional on-site set up. This could include adding a blog or portfolio so that your site is regularly updated. You may not change your home page very often but a blog is a great way to let Google know you are still in business!
Off-site SEO

p>We’ll help ensure you are found by making sure you are listed in key directories. Directory Citations are key for local SEO and help push genuine links to your site. We’d then look to gain high-quality external links from relevant websites such as blogs in your industry.

We have packages starting at £450+VAT per month.
