What is SEO and how does it work?
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is a broad term that covers any work that aims to increase your presence in organic search.
An SEO campaign can include copywriting, keyword research, on-page optimisation, international SEO, technical SEO and content marketing. It covers anything that helps your web page or overall website achieve SEO results. SEO touches on all areas of your online presence and involves many different skill sets.
As an experienced SEO agency, we can help you to make your website easier for search engines to understand. We know how you can answer your industry’s most searched-for questions. We will help you create link-worthy content for your site and get it noticed. All these things contribute to improving your search visibility.
How much does SEO cost?
Effective SEO takes hard work and expertise that do need some investment. Whether you invest in SEO agencies or in house, it’s important to give SEO the attention it deserves.
The size of investment is entirely up to you, but that investment will be cost effective if used properly. Rest assured that we’re used to working smart to get the most out of your budget for long term results.
How long does SEO take to work?
Unlike paid search, SEO is a medium to long term strategy and not a quick fix. To build a credible, authoritative web presence takes between 4 and 6 months to start seeing results.
