Are you looking for affordable small business SEO?
Is your small business website struggling to be found in the local area search results?
Do you want your website to appear on page one of Google?
If the answer to these questions is "yes", then read on. I can help your website gain more customers for you using organic SEO techniques.
Firstly, as a bit of background to this post, I create websites for small businesses and sole traders and recommend the best web hosting. Secondly, I recommend registering on the free Google My Business listing service and I also offer free small business ads to maximize your business exposure.
SEO Case Study Example
Recently, I was asked if I could do anything to help someone's website feature higher on Google as it was on page 5.
To start with, I asked the person a few questions:
- What words (keywords) do you want to be famous for and found on Google?
- Is your website created using WordPress? (I use WordPress and know a good SEO plugin)
- What specific area are you trying to attract customers to?
- Who are your competitors?
The reason I asked these questions are key on how to improve a website's SEO.
SEO doesn't have to be complicated you just need to know what keywords and phrases to put into the text on a page and where to put them in the backend of a website to optimize its performance.
If your website is created using WordPress for instance, using an SEO plugin called "Yoast SEO" can help with putting the words in the right places. Google reads these words placed in the meta description and the title tags which appear in their searches. These are key elements for appearing high in search results.
As I live in Leamington Spa, I have helped a number of local small businesses attract more customers to their websites.
Organic Google SEO
This is the term used to use keywords to rank high on Google. These are not paid adverts that you see at the top of the search engine, you just appear in the normal search listings. (Listing your business here is free and 100% recommended)
Here are a few examples of high-ranking keywords for local businesses:
In Google search engine enter:
- Leamington Spa carpenter - Result is for Valley Carpenters
- Leamington Spa dog walker - Result is for Fitness 4 Dogs
- Dog grooming Warwick - Result is for Raggydogz Dog Grooming
- Ironing service Cawston - Result is for Woodview Ironing Services
- Windscreen replacement Leamington Spa - Result is for Warwickshire Windscreens
- Chimney sweep Leamington Spa - Result is for Sootbusters
- Kitchen fitters Leamington Spa- Result is for Valley Build
The above websites are ones that I have either created or had a hand in the SEO.
The small businesses all appear on page one and have been in business for a number of years. The business owners all say that their websites bring in work due to appearing on page one of Google.
So how can I help your small business SEO?
Whichever area you live and work in the UK, just let me know and I will use some tools to research your website's SEO and work out how to beat your competition.
I use the Google Keyword tool to find out how much competition there is for certain keywords and SEOptimer to see how well your site is currently doing. From the results I can work out what we need to do to improve your website.
You will want to know how much this affordable SEO is right?
Basically, I would take a look at your website and see how long it would take to tweak. I work on an hourly basis for small business SEO so on average it will probably cost you £20 to improve your website ranking. (The return on this could be massive).
So, if you are looking for a genuinely helpful, friendly and local SEO company, please feel free to contact me and I will take a look at your website.
All the best.
