For example, "surveyor in Sevenoaks", "solicitor in Tonbridge" or even "SEO agency in Kent", if you were looking for a site like this one. We work closely with our clients to understand their business and objectives, where their customers are based and how best to target them. We've worked with many Kent based companies and helped them to rank for keywords relevant to places around the county and beyond.

Frequently asked questions

1Why should I trust your agency over the numerous other SEO companies?

We let our results do the talking, so please see our testimonials page to see just some of the things our clients have written about us online.

We do understand that employing a web marketing company can be daunting. It is a discipline where typically jargon is over used, and many agencies over promise and under deliver.

To make this process a little easier Google employee Maile Ohye summarises the key steps to successfully hiring an agency. See the full video on our how to hire an agency page. Though her key three steps are:

  • Conduct an interview for all candidate

    A good SEO agency should not only focus on your search engine rankings, but also on how they can help your business.

  • Check references of past clients

    Ask for references from past clients to whom the agency has provided useful help and guidance. Also check they worked effectively with other web developers, designers and marketers.

  • Commission a technical and search audit

    Get a prioritised list of what SEO items they think should be improved. Plus, an audit of your branded search query performance, and identify the types of queries that it makes sense for your business to rank for.

We would be very happy to attend an interview, and arrange client references, please call Mike to discuss. To book a technical and search audit, see our SEO Audit page.

2What will your services cost?

We cannot give you an answer until we know what work will best serve your business, whether that be SEO, local SEO, pay per click advertising, social media marketing, email marketing, or something else.

We do however have many businesses who have benefited from our services, to whom the return greatly outweighs their investment. See some of our client testimonials.

3What is the difference between SEO and Local SEO?

Local SEO is the discipline of achieving top Google rankings for searches where there is a local intent, such as:

  • Example 1: the searcher is in Dartford and types into Google “coffee shops” on their mobile, so is expecting to see relevant nearby maps results.
  • Example 2: the searcher is on their PC, and looking for a hotel for their stay in Royal Tunbridge Wells next week, so types into Google “hotels in Tunbridge Wells”, so will expect to see both maps and natural results in Google with relevant results.
  • Example 3: the searcher lives in Kent and needs to market their business online, and types into Google “seo services kent”, and “kent seo” to find the best results.

SEO is the discipline of achieving top Google rankings for searches where there is no local intent, such as:

  • Example 1: the searcher is looking for a loan, and types into Google “cheap car loans”, they are not interested if the company is local or not.
  • Example 2: the searcher is looking for the cheapest fittings they can find for their new bathroom, and may type into Google “cheap bathroom accessories” or “modern bathroom fittings”.

There are businesses like ourselves who need both ‘Local SEO’ and ‘SEO’, as we target in the search engines queries such as “seo company kent” and “local seo services”.

4How long does SEO take?

Depending on many factors, SEO campaigns typically take between 4 months and a year; though that is not to say that you will not get results before then.

Especially with established websites, we have achieved very positive increases in rankings and visitors within weeks.

You need to remember that SEO is like laying a pipeline, once down the leads will flow even if you have not done specific work that week. Though maintenance is typically required; plus, if a competitor builds a bigger pipeline right next to yours, you may need to upgrade.

5I have multiple locations outside of Kent, can you help?

We are very experienced at optimising multiple locations for businesses; this process is just a matter of repeating the work carried out for one location.

Though sometimes things start to fail when the quality of the listings and web pages decline; human nature kicks in and some people get bored and lazy when setting up multiple locations, using the same photos and text.

It is very important for businesses with multiple locations that their Google My Business Listings and associated local web pages, are well set up, with relevant local photos, local names, addresses and phone numbers, with good relevant local information.

6What other types of web marketing could help my business?

This will of course depend on your business and its goals, but we can provide you the following marketing options:

Social Media Marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites [5]. This can be extremely effective for some local businesses, and for more information see our Social Media Services page.

Pay Per Click is a type of web advertising in which a fee is paid each time an ad is clicked; essentially, it’s a way of buying visitors to your website much quicker than the 4 months to a year it takes for SEO [6]. As local targeting is possible, this can be very effective for local businesses; see our PPC Services page.

Email Marketing could be simply described as using email to promote products and /or services; though a better definition would be the use of email to develop relationships with potential customers [7]. Develop relationships is highly relevant to most types of business, and for more information see our Email Marketing Services page.
