Search Engine Optimisation

Get In Touch
  • Make your SEO flamin-go!

    SEO stands for ‘search engine optimisation’. Essentially, it’s the process of enhancing the visibility of a website on organic search engine result pages.

    This effectively helps to generate more unpaid quality traffic to your website and deliver great results for your company in terms of lead generation, online sales and brand awareness.

    So for example, if you were a Digital Marketing Agency like Cariad Marketing, you would want your website to rank on page one on Google if someone typed in the search: Digital Marketing Agency.

    A successful SEO campaign goes beyond adding the relevant keywords to a website and hoping for search engines to reward you for the effort.

    It’s both a technical and non-technical process for which you need a strategic approach with clearly defined measures of success.

    Your SEO Team will audit your current website and devise a unique and comprehensive strategy for optimising it with keywords designed to help you achieve your business objectives. We also report our progress every month so you’re always in the know.

The SEO process

1

Research

To begin we sit down and get to know you, your business, and objectives. Using these insights we extensively research your target market, identifying which search terms should be targeted to achieve your objectives.

We carry out a full audit of your website to assess if any technical issues exist that need to be fixed. Based on this research, we plan a SEO strategy with realistic and measurable targets in place.

2

Implementation

At this stage we begin to implement the strategy we devised based our prior research. Technical SEO issues identified during the audit will be prioritised and fixed in the early stages of the campaign. Key pages of the website will be optimised around the target keywords they are aligned with.

Additional content will be written and published to both new and existing pages where content gaps are found throughout the website. Opportunities to gain links from relevant, authoritative websites will be actively sought out to improve the authority of your website.

3

Measure & Evaluate

As we proceed with executing the SEO campaign according to plan, we assess the impact of changes already made, measuring the progress of the campaign against the defined KPIs and objectives.

Reporting that details both the work undertaken and results achieved will be produced in an easily-understandable format for you on a monthly basis.

4

Ongoing Improvements

Using the insights gathered as the campaign progresses, we evaluate their overall performance and make strategic changes to improve their effectiveness.

At this stage we will make continuous adjustments, based on data and intuition, to ensure that your campaigns are performing effectively and meeting their goals and objectives.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We are able to work with a wide range of websites, from ones built with static coding to bespoke eCommerce solutions. If your website has a content management system such as WordPress this will make things easier. If not then we can still work with you! Depending on the complexities of your website we will either carry out technical work in-house, or suggest liaising with your web developer to implement the changes we recommend.

Unfortunately no one can guarantee number one or even first page rankings on Google, and you should be wary of anyone who promises otherwise. With constant changes to how it processes and evaluates its results, aiming for a page one ranking on Google can often be a moving target. What you should be looking for is a measurable increase in targeted traffic that drives people actively looking for your products or services to your website. This is what will convert into leads and potential sales, and this is what we focus on for our clients.

SEO is similar to any other form of marketing – what you should spend will always be dependent on your budget, objectives, and what you hope to achieve. The amount you spend will directly correlate with the output of work and timeframe of expected results.

If you have questions regarding budget get in touch and one of our experienced team will be able to talk you through the details.

Search engine optimisation is a long-term investment, and the time required to see results will depend drastically on both the work required and competitiveness of your industry. While we always look for quick wins for our clients, you can expect to wait at least 3-6 months to see any significant results from your campaigns, unless your website is already fairly well-established.

Asking is it ‘worth it’ is like asking if a dentist is ‘worth it’ when you need a tooth pulled. Like most things in life, it can be done yourself given time and effort, but if you value your time and the expertise of professionals then it pays to go with a reputable SEO company.

Given a few key metrics such as your conversion rate and average or lifetime sale value, a good SEO agency will be able to forecast your expected ROI based on increases in targeted traffic – this should help you determine whether it is worth it or not.

There is a caveat to this: if a business doesn’t have the budget to afford a reputable SEO company, lacks the infrastructure to deal with an increase in leads and sales, and/or needs results immediately, then working with an SEO company will likely not prove worth it.

A good SEO company will be an established business, with reviews and demonstrable results that show they can deliver what they are proposing. They will be good communicators, and you will be able to contact them without issue.

The right agency for you will listen to your requirements and objectives, then devise an SEO strategy designed to help you achieve your KPIs. They will have experience in your industry or a related field, with past results that prove they are capable of meeting your objectives.

An SEO agency specialises in marketing and promoting companies within the organic (free) results of search engines such as Google and Bing. Based on your requirements and objectives, they will devise a strategy to meet these objectives by optimising your website so it can be found for terms relevant to your business.

Cariad Marketing took over updating, managing, and hosting our website and email several years ago. The team are highly responsive, extremely knowledgeable and provide accurate, professional work on our behalf. They think of things that us as business owners wouldn't be at the top of our list, two things for example, adding security software to identify and respond to any security threats; updating GDPR statements to be compliant. Not only that they are a fabulous team who immerse themselves in supporting charitable causes which is important and commendable. Thank you for your support Team Cariad.

It is a pleasure for me to recommend Carid Marketing to any interested parties. Carid Marketing have been professional, comprehensive and competent throughout the process of our working together on our membership website. Our existing website was old outdated and frankly didn’t represent the industry we serve today. The challenge was how you create a website which reflects over 150 companies. We required a strong call to action and a interactive, attractive, organised and effective website -  A tough challenge which the team from Carid took onboard and have delivered the most outstanding website that ticks our requirement’s and more. The reaction from our members and guests has been overwhelmingly positive. It has been a successful transition for us , and we highly recommend them for their website development and outstanding creativity. Designing a new website can an arduous and challenging task, especially if you're not entirely sure what you actually want or need.  James/Phil made the whole process a pleasure and used industry knowledge to make great suggestions in areas we had not considered, James and Phil displayed a patient, friendly and accommodating view during the whole process. Even when obstacles arrived and we had to take a different approach.Overall the team at Carid made the experience an enjoyable and stress-free one.If you are looking for creativity, I highly suggest taking a moment and speaking with CaridThanks again Carid I cannot recommend you highly Enough.

We have been working with Cariad Marketing for around 3 months now. We really value the personalised approach they take and we have a great working relationship with our Account manager Colette Cooper who is always brimming with ideas and energy and truly feels like a dedicated member of our team. We are starting to see the results of all the work that the back end team have put into our SEO and backlinks so very excited to see how this continues to evolve and grow over the coming months. We couldn't recommend the team more highly enough as they are just so lovely, responsive and a delight to work and they are dedicated to helping your business win.

We think that many of you reading this will agree that sometimes just saying 'thank you' for great customer service feels rather inadequate, so here at the Muscle Help Foundation charity, we've decided to increase the 'gratefulness barometer' by posting Google Reviews that allow us to spotlight individuals, businesses, suppliers and partners etc that we know give amazing 'muscletastic' service. So put your hands together and give it up for... Alex Moody, who works in Cariad's fab creative team but guess what, he's also that brilliantly helpful point-person who picks-up on all those 'urgent' help-desk enquiries and we've had our fair share of those over the years. Having worked with this Hertfordshire-based digital marketing agency for several years, this special collaborative relationship resonates with our STRONGER TOGETHER ethos, that's why we've decided to highlight Alex, a team player, yes... but also reliable, flexible, respectful and always ready to help, plus we know how incredibly responsive he can be - for that, this review comes with heartfelt gratitude for all that he does for us! Big thanks Alex - you sir rock!
