Frequently Asked Questions
Can SEO help me?
Search engines are a major way that customers find your business. Driving more traffic to that website can help you get more paying customers.
Appearing on page one in search engine results builds trust, credibility and brand authority giving the idea that you are a market leader in your field.
What’s your availability?
I will only take on 2 new clients per month and am generally booked 2 months in advance. If you’re interested in getting started soon, I recommend you get in touch ASAP, and I can let you know my next available start date.
Do you take on every client who wants to work with you?
No, I don’t. I’d really love to help everyone who enquires, but some websites just aren’t suited for SEO services. This can be due to a number of things, whether it’s a brand new domain, or that not a lot of people are searching for your particular niche. If I don’t believe you will get a return on your investment from SEO, I will be upfront and honest.
How do I know if my website is ready for SEO
Here are some signs that you’re ready to hire an SEO consultant:
Your website is at least a year old
I require that my clients’ websites have been online for at least a year before we work together.
Brand new websites are difficult to rank. It’s not impossible, but it can take a lot longer than an established website. The reason for this is that Search Engines aren’t sure if new websites have been created for spam links or as actual businesses, therefore it takes a little while for Google to work it all out and rank your website accordingly.
Your website is built on WordPress or Squarespace
If a website has a lot of technical issues, search engines may not be able to find your content, or even rank the wrong pages for your targeted keywords.
Some website platforms have limitations when building sites, they are great for DIY’ers but don’t provide the option to edit some of the more technical areas which can be crucial to your website’s ability to rank. Some of these areas include meta titles, meta descriptions, headers, and other search engine settings. Some platforms are better for this than others.
The ability to rank your site will be limited if your site has been built on the Wix or Weebly website platform. I recommend for the best performance that my clients use Squarespace or Wordpress.
