Our Approach to SEO

At the Grapefruit our philosophy is to keep the process of improving your rankings and the traffic you get from the search engines as simple as possible. To achieve this, we set up every project we take on to focus on the three key areas that have been shown to deliver successful campaigns our clients.

Technical Optimisation

Your website performs better when it’s well-tuned. This is why we carry out a thorough technical audit of every site we work on, to understand what might be holding it back and which areas need improvement. From mobile-friendliness to page speed optimisation, browser caching to file compression, we look at all of the technical aspects of your site to see how their optimisation can be improved so that the when users are looking for the information on your site, the search engines can deliver it as fast as possible, on any type of device.

Content Optimisation

Search engines like Google have one goal – to display the most relevant results for the search terms the user entered. To understand which webpages have the most relevant information and should show up at the top of the search results, they essentially analyse two key factors, the first of these big the actual content on the page. We make sure the key on-page elements of your website are optimised for maximum benefit, so your pages rank for what the search engines and your potential customers think are the most relevant terms.

Backlink Profile Development

The second factor search engines consider when trying to understand what your webpages should rank for is your backlink profile – the sites that are linking to the pages on your site. If a good number of the most trusted sites in a particular niche are linking to your website, then Google is more lkely to consider your site to be relevant and credible within that niche as well. We focus on building a backlink profile for your site that the search engines will not only trust but will also find relevant for your market – crucial for ranking well for your target terms.
SEO isn’t rocket science, it doesn’t need to be complex – it’s simply a case of providing the search engines and people that use them with the information they want to see. By focusing on these three key areas, we are able to achieve just that. Making sure each website’s technical performance is optimal, the content on the webpages is optimised as well as possible for the terms it’s trying to target, and the backlink profile positions the site as one of the most credible and relevant sites in its market is what has helped us deliver results for our clients time and time again – and we can do the same for you.

COMMON SEO QUESTIONS

t

What is website SEO?

Website Search Engine Optimisation is the process of working within the search engines’ guidelines to make sure your site gives them as much information and displays all the key factors they want to see, so they decide that your site should rank well in their results – at least that’s the way we approach it.
t

How much does SEO cost?

SEO projects can cost varying amounts, there are a number of factors to consider, including how competitive the sector is, how quickly you want to see results, and what state your site is in at the moment. Our smallest projects start at £500 per month but the greater the budget, the more work can be done, the better/quicker (relatively speaking) the results.
t

Is SEO worth the money?

In most cases yes – but not always. To decide if an SEO project is going to be worth it it’s important to understand the potential organic traffic it could deliver, how well that traffic is likely to convert, and how much those conversions are worth. Some sectors will have higher volumes of low-spending traffic, while others will get less organic traffic, but it converts and spends better. We can help you understand if an SEO project will show a return on investment for your business.
t

What industries need SEO the most?

If the goal is to rank in the organic search results and drive traffic to a website, businesses in any competitive sector are likely to require Search Engine Optimisation – simply because all the other sites in will most likely be using SEO to rank. But if your SEO is more effective, then you can make up a lot of ground on these other sites, and that’s where we can help.
t

Does SEO really work?

How did you find our site? Yes, SEO really works, when it’s done right and done well. We get the vast majority of traffic from our organic search rankings, which have been achieved by using the same strategies and techniques that we use on our client’s sites, so their businesses get the same benefits.
t

How long does SEO take to work?

The key thing to remember is that SEO takes time, but a lot depends on what kind of SEO your site needs. Improving the technical and content optimisation of your site can deliver results more quickly than if you need to develop your backlink profile, the key is to know what is needed, which is where we can help. Our clients typically see progress within 6 months, although projects can take 12 months and more to achieve their goals.
t

How often should SEO be done?

For most of our projects, SEO is a process, something which is done continuously on a month to month basis. But there are also cases where we undertake an initial or one-off SEO project designed to optimise as much as possible in order to help improve rankings and traffic, and then let those changes take affect, although these projects are usually only successful in low-competitor sectors.
t

Do I need SEO for my website?

Possibly – are you looking to improve your rankings for the search terms your customers are using and get more traffic from search engines like Google? If so, the chances are SEO could probably help. But if you’re not sure, we can help you understand whether SEO is right for you, so request a free SEO Audit below or fill out our Project Discovery Form and we’ll help you figure it out.
