Frequently Asked Questions

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a set of strategies, tactics and techniques with the goal of improving your website’s visibility and ranking on search engine results pages (SERPs). SEO involves optimising various elements of a website, such as its content, structure, and technical elements, to make it more helpful for search engines like Google to understand your business offering and intent. The ultimate goal of SEO is to drive the right organic (non-paid) traffic to your website and make it easier for your target audience to find and connect with your business.

Why is SEO important to a business?

SEO can be vital to business success as it helps drive organic traffic to your website, resulting in increased online visibility, brand recognition, and potential leads, customers or clients. A strong SEO campaign can improve a website’s impressions on search engines, generating a better click-through rate (CTR) and making it more likely to be discovered by users searching for professional services or information related to the business. Higher visibility can lead to conversions and help grow your business growth.

Is it worth paying for SEO?

SEO can be vital to business success as it helps drive organic traffic to your website, resulting in increased online visibility, brand recognition, and potential leads, customers or clients. A strong SEO campaign can improve a website’s impressions on search engines, generating a better click-through rate (CTR) and making it more likely to be discovered by users searching for professional services or information related to the business. Higher visibility can lead to conversions and help grow your business growth.

Pay Per Click (PPC) – This is where you set up Google sponsored ads for set keywords. You bid on the price then every time someone clicks the link you pay the bidden price. PPC campaigns can be very effective when done properly. However, this is more of a sprint to getting users to your website. So this may suit someone with a limited budget to get some relatively quick wins but it can get pretty expensive and when you turn it off your traffic stops.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – This is where you optimise your website to be understood by search engines. Helping search engines crawl and index your website more appropriately and efficiently. The more accurately you can define your business, the more likely you will draw your correct target audience. It takes time to set up and is ongoing, so SEO is more of a marathon. By setting up your website for sustainable success, you will organically rank for the relevant keywords and be the answer to the target audience’s query. Also, when you stop SEO, you will eventually drop rank, but this is gradual process. The great thing about ranking organically, it’s free, as you do not need to pay every time someone clicks on your website.

So, to sum up, if you need quick wins with a limited budget go for PPC, if you can sustain the cost of implementing SEO then that may be a better solution. If your budget allows, you can invest in PPC and SEO simultaneous for maximum results. When implemented properly and holistically focused on the same goal you can achieve incredible results and maximise your ROI.
