Our Approach: The right ingredients to help you rank

Our approach is logical, based on sound business fundamentals and is easy to understand. We focus on the right ingredients to help you rank.

There are several steps to achieving consistently high search engine rankings. Generally when working with you, we'll follow the process below.

Step 1. High Performance Search Engine Friendly Hosting

You know yourself when a website is slow to load you lose patience very quickly and there's a high chance you'll click away. Your customers behave in exactly the same way.

Google has also publicly stated that slow websites won't rank as well in the search results. The first step in the search engine optimisation process is fixing your website hosting so it loads lightning fast.

5 years ago, when we started incorporating website reliability and speed into our SEO services, we couldn't find an Australian-based hosting service that was fast, SEO friendly AND reliable so we built our own. If you're interested in learning more click here to visit the page for our Wordpress hosting services.

Step 2. Website Content & Keyword Research

A completely obvious, but usually overlooked, fundamental rule of ranking high in Google is making sure you have a page on your website for every product and service you sell or want to promote.

Each page of content needs to be appropriately matched to the search terms your prospective customers are using when looking in Google for that product or service, this discovery process is called keyword research.


Step 3. Mobile Compatibility

For most businesses, somewhere between 30-50% of their website visitors are on a smartphone. Your website is probably no different so it's critical that your website is mobile or smartphone friendly. If your site is not yet mobile friendly we can implement a high converting smartphone version of the site so your mobile visitors have the the best possible user experience.

Step 4. Comprehensive Onpage SEO


On-page SEO is the process of tweaking and tuning your content, images and underlying code of the website to ensure pages are well matches to the search terms your prospective customers are using.

Step 5. Online Marketing Best Practices

There are a number of general online marketing best practices that apply across the board or to specific types of businesses - they're not strictly search engine optimisation items but do form part of the bigger sales and marketing picture.

A good example of this is ensuring your business is listed in Google Maps, Apple Maps and Bing Maps and that the details are correct. In this step of the process we implement these general best practices to ensure we're maximising your online exposure.

Step 6. Reputation Management & Customer Review Request Strategy


Online customer reviews are becoming an increasingly large part of the sales and marketing puzzle. As part of our SEO services we set you up with our review monitoring service where you'll receive regular reports in your inbox of what's happening on all the platforms where your customers can leave reviews and feedback. We'll also help you implement a system to help you get positive customer reviews on an ongoing basis.

Step 7. Backlinks & Backlink Strategy

At their core, search engine algorithms are a popularity contest - the more sites that link to yours, the more popular you are in the eyes of the search engines. No SEO strategy would be complete without adding more backlinks to your site and a system that generates you regular new backlinks.

Optional But Recommended: Google Adwords Management

Google is really a paid search engine that has free listings too. Something like 98% of their billions in revenue come from their Adwords search engine advertising platform, in other words - Google's top priority is their advertising product.

No search engine strategy today is complete without Google Adwords. It's just too important to ignore today when usually 50% or more of the search engine result pages (SERPs) are ads.

9 of out 10 clients see a positive return on their Google Adwords spend and as such each of our plans includes Google Adwords management services up to a specified spend limit each month.

SEO and Adwords have different strengths and weaknesses, for example SEO takes time whereas Adwords ads can be up and running in less than 24 hours, and by using them together, they eliminate each others weaknesses leading to a better result overall.

A well running Adwords campaign is almost like free money where you spend $1 on ads and get $3, $5, $10 and often more in returns.


Ongoing Manangement, Maintenance & SEO Reporting

As more businesses move online and get proactive about online marketing things are only going to get more and more competitive. The online landscape changes frequently, you've probably noticed yourself how often the appearance of the search results change right?

The level of maintenance your website and online marketing strategy needs will vary depending on what business you're in. Regardless, it's important that your website, SEO and online marketing strategy is proactively managed and maintained on an ongoing basis to ensure consistent ranking results and a steady stream of new customer enquiries and sales.



Below are some of the questions we're regularly asked about our SEO services. If you have a question and it isn't answered below please drop us a line at [email protected]

Is Search Engine Optimisation right for me?

Well it depends, generally SEO is best for businesses where people are actively searching for a solution in Google. if people are actively searching for you or your type of business then the answer is yes! For some types of businesses other marketing channels like Facebook Ads or Instagram may be a better fit.

If you’re not sure, book a consult call or shoot us an enquiry and we can chat in more detail.

Do you work with all types of businesses?

No. We only work with businesses where we can get them a result. We don’t work with businesses doing anything illegal or that sit in a grey area. SEO is a long term game and often isn’t suitable for brand new businesses as they need a result FAST which means Adwords is generally a better option

Do you offer whitelabel services?

Yes, shoot us an email on [email protected] with more specifics on what you’re looking for and we can chat further.

Can I see the links you build?

No. This is for everyone’s own good. We don’t like exposing our tactics and would prefer you focus on the outcome, that is higher rankings, more organic traffic and most importantly more sales, enquiries, bookings, calls and so forth.

How long does it take to get results?

Tough question and unfortunately the answer is “it depends”.
In some industries and markets you’ll see a noticeable result within a few months. In other markets it may take several months.

It largely depends on the competition in your market, how long you’ve had a website for, how much active marketing has been done on the site and the commercial maturity of your business.

SEO is a long term play and it’s important that your focus is long term. Expect at a minimum 3 months to see serious movement.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Yes. If in the first 30 days you’re not happy we’re happy to give you a refund. It’s important for us that you’re happy and you see results.

We don’t offer ranking guarantees as these are mostly cheesy sales gimmicks. What you’ll find is that most companies offering these, too good to be true, guarantees focus on some obscure keyword that is barely even commercially relevant to your business.

It’s important to understand that the search results can be completely different based on what device you’re using (e.g. computer, smartphone and tablet), where you’re searching from (e.g. the search results in Sydney are completely different to Perth) and in some cases what you’ve searched for previously (personalised search).

To add a little more here, focusing solely on keywords is a very limited approach. What ultimately matters is whether you’re selling products and services based on Google organic traffic.

Keyword positions and rankings are only a part of that puzzle. Here’s one example, neglecting other important elements like online reviews means that a competitor who ranks lower than you, but has more reviews and better quality reviews, may actually be getting more visitors and sales even though you outrank them.

Another good example is website speed, if you rank number 1 in Google but your website crawls along like a snail then it’s likely a lot of visitors will lose patience and click away elsewhere instead of buying, booking or making an enquiry.

What reports do I get?

You’ll get monthly traffic reports detailing traffic breakdown and visitor behaviour as well as access to keyword ranking reports that track keywords relating to the products and services we’re focused on ranking for you.
