Keyword Research

Thorough keyword research is foundational to a successful SEO campaign. We uncover which words and phrases your potential customers are searching for, and analyse these for relevancy, search volume, and search intent. This allows us to target a relevant audience who are genuinely interested in what you offer, at multiple points in their customer journey.

On-Page SEO

When optimising for on-page SEO, we look at everything: page titles, text content, rich visual content and media, meta title and description, the page URL, schema, trust signals, mobile-friendliness, keyword density, EEAT, and more. We ensure your website is easy for search engines to understand and rank your site, but also reads great for human website visitors as well.

Off-Page SEO

Beyond your website, off-page SEO involves building trust and authority. We help you attract quality natural backlinks, enhancing your site's reputation and ranking potential. Just as importantly, we disavow or remove spammy links pointing to your site that could harm your rankings or even result in a Google penalty. When needed we can assist with penalty removal and recovery.

SEO in Sheffield:

Despite the down-to-earth friendly atmosphere that leads to its description as the largest village in England, Sheffield is actually the forth largest city in England, and an economy estimated at over £11 billion.

The Sheffield people have a notable aversion to being ‘sold to’, but are happy to find providers of the products and services they need online, making SEO a key element of digital marketing in Sheffield.

SEO is the process of optimising your website to appear on Google Search, driving valuable search traffic to your website, and reducing your your need for outbound sales activities like Google Ads and Telemarketing.

Sheffield SEO helps you to tap into the unique opportunities this northern region offers, by allowing ‘Sheffielders’ to find you when they want to, and saves you hassling them with ineffective sales techniques when they don’t.

SEO is still by far the best sales-generating marketing tactic we know of in 2022 and has a better return on investment (ROI) in our experience than PPC advertising and offline marketing activities.

As a collaborative SEO and PPC agency that speaks to most clients at least monthly to check on how our results are contributing to their broader company-wide sale and marketing strategy, we have a unique insight into our client’s successes using various marketing techniques such as SEO, Google Ads, Facebook Ads. We can honestly say we have yet to find anything that gives a better ROI so consistently compared with SEO.

That said, SEO definitely works better in some industries than others, and a broad generalisation would be that it works best in either specialist B2B or in any B2C scenario. If you are selling widely-available commodity products to businesses, most of your target customers will probably know of several potential good suppliers already, and therefore are less likely to do a Google search for your product or service, compared with if you were selling something less readily available. See our blog The Disadvantages and Advantages of SEO for further commentary on this topic.

No, AI cannot replace traditional SEO techniques for now, and likely in the future too – but it can definitely assist.  We regard the use of AI for SEO like the use of a calculator when doing a maths exam – it definitely helps, but if you haven’t put in the hard study prior to the exam, the calculator won’t automatically help you get a good grade.  

The old saying ‘garbage in garbage out’ definitely applies, and AI doesn’t have the creativity that the human brain has either, so can’t think up new ground-breaking ideas – it is better at rapidly producing ‘me too’ imitations of what’s already out there, rather than coming up with anything genuinely new.

SEO involves human competence in understanding user intent, adapting to algorithm changes, and creating quality content. Whilst AI can assist in data analysis and recommendation, human involvement remains essential if you want to outrank and get ahead of your competitors, rather than than follow behind them.
