More about SEO
SEO is a long term marketing strategy that directs prospective customers to your website when they search for related products and services on the web.
Sounds relatively simple, right?
Nope: it’s actually very complex to do SEO the right way.
Our unique SEO Process
SEO is always changing, and Google knows how to keep a good SEO agency on its toes by constantly adjusting its SEO rules.
We monitor. We adapt. We get results… always.
Where you are right now determines how hard it will be – and how long it will take – to get your SEO strategy delivering lots of enquiries.
An audit is critical to understanding your current situation and how to improve upon it.
We like to focus on conversion, and to do this we look for keywords that indicate a direct intent to buy.
There are many things to consider – but understanding a user’s intent is the best way to get more business.
Our core principle is based on this simple fact: good content ranks. We get the content right first, and our team look at on-page and off-page strategies.
World-class SEO software helps our team get everything right.
Analyse and Improve
We regularly monitor the work we do and the results you get. We then actively prioritise the most important and effective strategies to maximise your SEO results.
You’ll always know what we do, the results we’re achieving, and what we’re focusing on next to continually improve.
Our SEO agency gets it done the right way!
There are many questions that need to be answered before choosing what to optimise for.
Some people may choose keywords based solely on search volume – naturally, you might assume keywords with the highest amount of monthly searches are the ones you should target.
What phrases are people actually searching for?
How competitive is the online marketplace for those phrases?
Does your website currently stand a chance of ranking for those phrases?
How much work would it take to get you to rank for those phrases?
Should we choose other phrases that are more specific?
Are there phrases that are more relevant for your business?
Should we choose more geographically specific phrases?
Consider if this scenario applies to you…
Let’s say you are an accountant who wants to start SEO for your business.
You might be want to rank for a phrase like “Accountant Melbourne” knowing this could be searched hundreds of times per month!
However this keyword may be VERY competitive – making it hard to rank for.
At iformat, we will evaluate your current situation and advise what phrases are most realistic for you to target for the short and long-term.
Short-term, we may suggest that you go for lower-competition phrases, or more niche terms, that are specifically suited to your business.
Choose the best strategy
Trying to rank for highly competitive terms or phrases like “Accountant Melbourne” may be unrealistic for you in the short term.
It’s just not something you can rank for in a snap.
To get there, you will need to invest in a long-term SEO strategy.
Getting the right benefits
After all, five leads from a niche phrase that is only searched 20 times per month is better than zero leads from a competitive phrase searched 1000 times per month!
(And if you need jump the queue and get visits straight away – we may suggest using Google Ads to appear on page one.)
Don’t be fooled – make sure you get your SEO strategy right
Too many SEO Agencies just create a list of keywords that have good search volumes. They impress you with possibilities and hope for the best.
These are our top rules for ensuring you choose the right agency…
A good SEO must be able to show you good ranking results. If they can’t show you multiple businesses with good ranking and good enquiries or sales – do not use them.
An SEO agency must do a workshop with you to understand your business. Only then can they determine the most appropriate SEO strategy for your business.
Don’t let the agency make you choose the keywords to go for. A good agency will give you the most appropriate, practical and relevant advice.
A good SEO Agency will always spark a conversation that leads to keywords you hadn’t thought of or come back to you with other keywords that open possibilities to more business.
A good SEO Agency will always choose a range of keywords but present ones that are ‘focused’ on getting you the most qualified enquiries.
In short, working with an SEO Agency is a collaborative process: no one knows your business better than you, but its our job to gain an in-depth understanding and create a strategy best suited to not only the products and services you offer, but your business goals, too.
