Q – How long does SEO take to work?
Answer: It depends on your website design – its structure and how authoritative it is; it also depends on your competition. Usually we like to see some improvement between 1 and 3 months but it could take between 6 and 12 months to really see a change in your keyword rankings. If you website is brand new it will take longer to rank.
Q- Do you recommend paid adverts alongside SEO?
Answer: If your website is brand new it will take a while for Google and Bing to find it and then to rank it well. So sometimes PPC (paid ads) can help get your business noticed before it starts to rank well.
Q- How much does SEO cost?
Answer: The cost of SEO depends on how much work needs to be done. For a local business usually we recommend at least a few hours a month. Ecommerce websites are much more complicated and we need to spend a lot more time on those. The cost therefore depends on how much time we spend on your website. The more time we have, the more that we can do.

Q- How do you do SEO?
Answer: In this SEO agency we always start with an SEO audit. This is to review the whole website to find what is wrong and what is right with it. Once we finish the audit and the website is optimised onsite, we will try and increase the authority of the domain/website by acquiring links for it. Backlinks are very important as they help the website to gain authority and rank higher.
Q- What are backlinks?
Answer: Backlinks are like votes of confidence in a website. If a website links to your website, that is a backlink – or a vote of confidence in your website. The more that you have the better. However, backlinks need to be strong and of good quality.
