Choosing an SEO company in Manchester can be a bit of a mind boggling task, but is needn’t be. SEO can be an incredible marketing tool and one that can help a business succeed, however, there is a common misconception that every business can use SEO in the same way. I know that is not true, and that for SEO to succeed it needs to be part of a bigger online marketing strategy.
For this reason, before we begin working on any SEO strategy, we take the time to work with our customers to fully understand your needs and goals, to help ensure that the SEO I provide is as successful as possible.

SEO or search engine optimisation has changed significantly since it was first used, and what worked in the past is not an effective way to achieve SEO success in 2018 and beyond. To ensure that any SEO strategy is a success, it is vital that you consider how other channels impact organic visibility, including:
- Content: Each of our SEO campaigns is supported by regular, quality content. This is a crucial part of any SEO campaign. High-quality content combined with link building are two of the top factors that Google uses to rank a website for searches. With that in mind, our content is created to ensure that it entertains your customers and potential customers, and helps to establish you as an expert in your field. Using regular content allows us to rank your business for more search terms. Did you know that 20% of Google searches are new?
- Social Media: For SEO, social media is crucial as it helps to establish your brand as a leading figure in the industry that you operate in, connects you with influencers within your industry, and improves your company’s overall visibility. With regular feedback and support, we can help you to leverage your social media networks to help improve visibility organically.
- Mobile devices: Today, there are more Google searches from mobile devices than from any other. This means that when it comes to your SEO, having a mobile website that is responsive is crucial.
- PPC: While PPC does not directly impact SEO, many customers find brands via PPC adverts before visiting a website, which is why ensuring that all digital marketing is working in harmony is so crucial.
I always endeavour to achieve the very best SEO results, increasing our customers’ website traffic and sales. One of the key benefits of SEO is an increase in search engine ranking, and by doing so, increasing a website’s potential for higher levels of traffic and higher sales rates.
Studies have shown that SEO is more relevant than ever before, with many marketing companies seeing SEO as achieving higher results than in previous years. According to MarketDive, 82% of marketers have reported that SEO success and effectiveness is on the rise.
As part of the SEO service that we offer, we are pleased to be able to provide a local SEO service as well as a national and abroad to English speaking countries only for now.

Our SEO service focuses on both local and international SEO, along with the use of YouTube, e-commerce and content marketing. While we take pride in offering our clients high-quality SEO solutions, we always make sure to provide realistic expectations, such as that SEO can take time to gain momentum and does not achieve results overnight. Also, be wary of anyone guaranteeing results, this is a common SEO scam. The algorithm is Google’s, which means nobody can make guarantees. I will make forecasts and aim to rank you as highly as possible whilst remaining compliant with the search engine’s guidelines.
Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my website noticed?
There are a number of creative ways of getting traffic to your website and getting it noticed by the search engines. SEO, PPC, Social Media advertising, Press releases, guest blogging to name a few. If you are a bit stuck, try having a look at your competition and seeing who currently ranks at the top of Google and what they have been up to.
How do you check if my website is indexed by Google?
Quite simply go to the Google search engine and type in the Google query bar site:yourdomain.com this will fetch most known web pages Google currently has in its index. The other more long-winded method is logging into Google Search Console and checking pages indexed but you first need to be verified and know where to look. Get your SEO consultant to check this out for you if you’re unsure.
How long does SEO take to see results?
While SEO is a long-term marketing strategy it all depends on how old your website is and what sort of authority you currently have. For example, if I take two similar clients on, one with a brand new domain name and hardly any authority and the other with an established website and decent authority, the newer site will lose every time. It also depends on what sort of budget you have to spend on search engine optimisation. The less you pay, the longer it generally takes. If you are spending a few £1000 a month, then I would estimate it can take anywhere between six months – twelve months. Nobody can guarantee rankings, if they do, DO NOT do business with them. The search engine ranking is not there’s to guarantee.
Why does SEO take so long?
SEO, unlike paid advertising, needs to be done naturally to give you the best long-lasting results. As the saying goes slow and steady wins the race. Also like anything else organic, it needs to grow and be nurtured over a gradual period of time. Be too aggressive with it and it can end up getting you penalised.
How long does it take for Google to rank your website?
It all depends on what niche you work in and how competitive it is but typically it can take from six to twelve months.
Does SEO really work?
Search Engine Optimisation, when carried out properly, can be very effective and provide a solid source of revenue to your business. Go cheap on it and it can spell disaster.
