How many keywords do you implement during onsite work and do how you choose the correct phrases? +-

With this in mind, we know that having the right keywords is crucial to make your website stand out when someone searches online for what you’re selling. Not only will we target keywords with a long-term strategy in mind, but we’ll be sure to also grab any low hanging fruit that you enjoy immediately.

When it comes to how many keywords we implement, we consult with you and discuss your budget and goals then decide on how many to focus on initially. Over time we aim to garner as many profitable, relevant keyworks to drive your campaign.

We use a range of (industry standard) tools as well as engage directly with our clients to ascertain the best keywords to focus on. Upon creating content with these keywords in mind as well as optimising your site wherever possible, your site will be fully enhanced to yield the right kind of traffic to your site.

How much does SEO cost? +-

How long is a piece of string? 🙂 SEO service costs can vary from campaign to campaign. This will all depend on the keywords and phrases you’re keen to target as well as other factors such as your industry, site history as well as how task heavy your site’s SEO undertaking may be.

Will I have to make changes to my website? +-

We rarely have to change the structural or design aspects of a site, in order to optimise it. Rather, we focus on code content and optimise each page as it stands, providing tweaks and copy edits that’ll make all the difference.

Most of our clients are happy to leave the tweaking in our hands, however, if you’d rather action our recommendations, you can still do so internally at your own discretion.

Can you help businesses recover from Google penalties? +-

Google penalties (like most penalties) can be extremely damaging and undo months, even years worth of work. Google will enforce one when it believes you’re cutting corners, trying to game the system or over-optimise your site.

But hope isn’t lost. We offer penalty assessment services for FREE. We’ll then be able to suggest the best course of action for you to take in order to get your site back on its feet. To take advantage of this service, please click here.

Do you outsource any of your work overseas? +-

To ensure that you get the results you’re after, we need to make sure your campaigns get the requisite treatment, oversight and specialist expertise necessary. That’s why all of our SEO specialists work within Melbourne, in our very own office, within close proximity to one another.

This ensures that our collaborative team is working around the clock to guarantee that your SEO strategy is up to industry standards; Providing professional oversight and much needed peace and mind.

How long does it take for you to rank a website? +-

As soon as we get the okay to start with our optimisation as well as have all the necessary access permissions for your site, we’ll get in touch with our inside man at Google (not really, it’ just the Advanced Website Ranking System) and submit your site to be fully evaluated. It usually takes around 72 hours to determine a site’s initial rankings.

Once we have commenced work and depending on a handful of important variables (niche, budget, etc) it could take from a month to 6 months to really move the needle. This could seem like a long time, but once we generate some momentum, you can reap the benefits well into the future.

During your campaign our dedicated account managers will lead you through each milestone along the journey and ensure a high level of transparency and professional guidance. While your given phrases3 may not appear on page one of Google’s search engine results, to ensure full transparency we share monthly reports with our clients to track your keywords’ performance. Example: your keyword rank improves from position 84 (page 9) to 26 (page 3) and you get full visibility into the performance of your campaign.

Do you implement any black hat tactics? +-

While plenty of our SEO team members wear hats (some black), we do NOT engage in black hat SEO tactics.

Google penalises sites which engage in these shady tactics and we support them on this. That’s why we take the good old fashion approach by pursuing best practice and encouraging our clients to commit to producing excellent content that their site visitors will adore (and come back for).

By optimising your site both offline and online, you’ll be able to achieve a great flow of traffic to help realise your SEO ambitions. Black hat SEO may get you some results, but all your hard work will come undone if and when you’re caught out. The penalties may be severe and cause people to lose confidence in your brand so don’t risk it.

What kind of SEO guarantees do you offer? +-

We don’t guarantee to get you on page one of Google, and to be honest, no company should. Google warns against companies making these lofty promises, particularly as their algorithms change often. Instead, Impressive guarantees to improve your visibility and rankings. We can get you the kind of traffic you’re after, carefully optimising your SEO to reach your target audience and consequently improve your site’s performance.

But don’t take our word for it! Check out the REAL results we got our REAL clients here.

Do you only optimise Australian sites or can you work across multiple countries? +-

Depending on the type of traffic you’re keen to attract we will create an SEO strategy that suits. However, we do offer a service we call International SEO. We cater to your international visitors by optimising your website in a way that attracts and retains the right visitors.

International search engine optimisation uses similar tactics to geotargeting and SEO for small businesses. But, instead of optimising your site to attract local customers from your region, you optimise it for countries and languages other than your own.

What link building techniques do you employ to help with rankings? +-

Backlinks are all about relationships, and good ones take a hefty investment of time and effort. We doubt you’ll have the time to start building these sorts of relationships on your own so we’ve done the work for you.

We have a rich network with a variety of connections, from bloggers to journalists and everyone in between. Our growing database allows our SEO and PR team to connect with high quality backlink opportunities that will help boost your ranking and improve your site’s performance, driving the right traffic to your site.

Our link building is always achieved through working with reputable websites and directories, ensuring that you not only achieve a stellar results but also have peace of mind that Google won’t penalise you.

Can SEO increase my sales or leads? +-

Most definitely! SEO is an incredible way to increase not only the traffic to your site but also increase sales and leads as a result. With a holistic approach to both educating site visitors and enhancing your searchability, we differ from many SEO companies in that we not only get you relevant traffic but will improve your ROI.

How are SEO and PPC different? +-

SEO differs from PPC in that its main objective is to improve your search position (or rank) on Google (or any other search engine, like Bing or Yahoo). The focus is on obtaining good quality organic traffic through a carefully mapped out content/SEO strategy.

PPC, on the other hand, focuses on investing a specified budget into advertising your webiste/services/product. Your PPC campaign will surely reap results sooner, whereas SEO will also involve an investment of time. However, while both are crucial to any marketing strategy, search engine optimisation tends to get businesses a better return on investment over time in comparison to PPC.

Should my business use SEO? +-

In short, YES. We can’t stress this any further. By implementing an SEO component into your overall marketing strategy, you’ll be investing in the long term visibility of your website and consequently, your company’s success online. Website’s that garner organic traffic through carefully implemented SEO position themselves to achieve a much higher ROI in the long term. More so than through paid search methods.

If you’re still not convinced, we offer a FREE SEO audit and consultation for businesses keen to learn more about our practices and the many benefits of SEO. You can apply for a session here.

Do you have in-house content writers to optimise our pages. +-
