OVERVIEW

The practise of adjusting a website’s technical settings, content relevancy, and link popularity in order to improve search engine rankings for its pages is known as SEO, or search engine optimisation.

Search engines promote SEO tactics that raise page ranking and user search experience by offering pertinent information. This involves, among other SEO best practises, the use of pertinent keywords in page titles, meta descriptions, and headlines (H1), descriptive URLs with keywords instead of strings of numbers, and schema markup to specify the content of the page.

OUR PROCESS

Outreach & Linkbuilding

The quantity of websites linking to your website is frequently mentioned as one of, if not THE most crucial ranking criteria. A1 SEO has built up a sizable network of trustworthy websites that we may reach out to for link building.

If your competitors are ranked highly by search engines, they will be building links on a large scale. However, making connections takes effort. As we are experts in link building, let A1 SEO manage your efforts.

Local SEO

You can draw clients that are looking for products and services in your area by using local SEO. Two search types—local searches and location-based keywords—are the focus of local SEO.

A local website can easily be ranked. We at A1 SEO adhere to a procedure that has been improved over the previous ten years. There are only simple tasks involved in this SEO black magic. When properly carried out, this method will improve your website's ranks on location-based search terms and in the local map pack.

Ranking a local website is straightforward. At A1 SEO we follow a process that we have refined over the past 10 years. There’s no SEO black magic here – just straightforward tasks. When followed correctly, this process will help boost your website’s rankings in the local map pack and on location-based keywords.

On-Page SEO

The elements of a page are referred to as on-page SEO. Most of the time, you have direct influence over these factors and you can change them right away.

By giving on-page SEO the attention it requires, Google can better determine the relevancy of your pages and connect your content to popular search terms.

SEO Audits

At A1 SEO, we know SEO Audits inside and out. We have evaluated hundreds of websites over the past five years and have determined the key, fixable sticking spots in each and every one of them.

We use a variety of methods to assess technical, on-page, and off-page (link building) components in order to assess the overall health of your website.

An audit from A1 SEO is the ideal place to start if you want to know where your website stands with Google and get practical suggestions on how to improve its search engine rankings.

SEO Consulting & Training

Your workers can optimise the search performance of your website, but they lack the expertise. With strategic guidance, your in-house staff can do a lot, but hiring an SEO expert is costly.

A1 SEO is aware that many huge corporations desire to enhance the abilities of their personnel and rely solely on outside agencies for strategic planning. Including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams, some of the biggest in-house marketing teams in the world have received our training.

Technical SEO

A site is examined for search engines using technical SEO. Create a Google-friendly website. The cornerstone for scaling link building and content marketing is technical SEO (including on-page SEO).

Sites that provide more information to Google are ranked higher. It's like handing your professor a 10,000-word dissertation in Spanish who speaks English. Good material is useless if the examiner cannot read it.

Technical SEO is effective. The speed at which A1 SEO can begin working on your website will affect technical SEO.

With technical SEO, we have total control. Link building campaigns yield immediate results. Google takes some time to evaluate your site again, but once the process is done, you should see an improvement in rankings.

White Label SEO

Some of the biggest digital marketing companies in the UK entrust A1 SEO with managing their SEO campaigns. We are aware that hiring, onboarding, and account maintenance for clients can be challenging. A1 SEO's short-, mid-, and long-term strategies ease the burden on a new client who succeeds in this.

Link building is the main focus of our white label SEO. Most agencies lack the time and knowledge necessary to do it. For agencies without their own SEO team or those going through personnel changes, we offer technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research, and reporting.

You can take on more clients without hiring as quickly if you can outsource a significant portion of your SEO approach. With the final client or the agency, we are constantly available for phone conversations and in-person meetings.

Onboarding

Once your contract is signed we will begin our onboarding process. Our onboarding process kicks off the entire campaigns. From he, we will brief in your website's technical, on-page and off-page audits. We will also create your own tailored reporting dashboard so you can have complete oversight of your SEO strategy's performance. At this stage, we also ask you to fill out a couple of forms to help our internal teams to put together a strategy.

2

Strategy Call

After the onboarding stage, you will already have deliverables being completed against your account, and the clock will be ticking towards increased rankings. By now our team will have spent a considerable amount of time familiarising themselves with your industry and will reach out to arrange a deep dive call to go through our proposed strategy and gain feedback to allow us to tailor this strategy further to meet your SEO goals. We expect all four clients to commit to regular catch-ups on-going, ideally on a bi-weekly basis.

3

Niche Analysis

Now we can start cooking with gas! Armed with the knowledge gained from the onboarding process and our strategy call, our team of SEO experts will conduct an in-depth niche analysis, covering every topic and sub-topic within your industry. From here, we will create a master database containing each page of your website and what is required to start moving the needle in an extremely granular way. This process takes anywhere from 20 to 500+ hours!

4

Link Building Strategy

Whilst your granular page-level strategy is being devised, our team of in-house digital PR experts will crawl through your Google Search Console account to find the biggest opportunities for external links. We look for pages where links will move the needle in a big way getting you the best possible ROI for your budget. Our team has the ability to deliver scalable off-page SEO strategies from day 5!

5

Technical SEO Sprint

During the niche analysis and early link building stages, our technical SEO team will be in the background working their magic. We run benchmark all of your client's websites against a 100+ point checklist and action any anomalies we find. We also do a deep dive within Google Search Console, looking for query gaps, indexing issues, broken average position lines and much, much more. This is a sprint that is repeated every single month.

6

SEO Scale Up

The previous steps in our process tend to take 1-3 months. By this point you will begin to see movement in the SERPs and will have a good idea of how we work and operate. All of the systems we have put in place for your business to date are all designed to scale up nicely. At this stage it is a case of being aggressive with publishing new and optimising older pieces of content, building links and keeping on top of the website's technical SEO.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does SEO take to work?

This depends on many factors, including your company's industry and competition, to rank for relevant keywords. E-commerce SEO takes time and should yield results in 6–12 months. The results you can expect from our eCommerce SEO services are an increase in organic traffic and conversions that lead to online sales and leads. Any eCommerce business and online store that invests in eCommerce SEO services should expect to see progress within this timeframe, even if you haven't reached your goal.

HOW DOES LINK BUILDING HELP E-COMMERCE SEO?

One strategy in e-commerce SEO is link building, which sends a message to search engines like Google that your website is an authoritative resource. This means that sites with more backlinks will likely rank higher in organic search results.

WHAT IS ON-PAGE OPTIMISATION IN E-COMMERCE SEO?

On-page optimisation, also known as on-page e-commerce SEO, is the process of enhancing a website's organic search engine rankings through changes made on the page itself. Measures like using keyword research to enhance the meta description and title tags with high-ranking and relevant keywords are examples of this.

WHAT DOES AN E-COMMERCE SEO (SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION) SPECIALIST DO?

When an e-commerce website is tested, analysed, and modified by an e-commerce SEO specialist to be search engine friendly and to include highly searched keywords based on in-depth industry keyword research, it rises in the rankings on major search engines like Google and Bing.

In order to increase website traffic, online sales lead volume, and brand awareness, e-commerce SEO experts will optimise each page of a website to ensure relevant keywords are included to lead to search engine results and to create a positive user experience. In other words, an SEO specialist is the same as any other marketer, whether they work in digital or traditional media, in that their ultimate goal is to increase online organic revenue for e-commerce websites and other industries.

An SEO specialist can do wonders for e-commerce businesses by increasing their website's Google rankings through the use of SEO and keyword research tools like Google Analytics. Some may also collaborate with other members of a marketing team to create new initiatives or improve the management of social media accounts in an effort to increase user engagement, enhance user experience, and drive more e-commerce website traffic.

WHAT E-COMMERCE SEO SERVICES DOES A1 SEO OFFER?

A1 SEO offers scalable and expert e-commerce SEO services, focusing on link building, content optimisation, technical SEO, local SEO, SEO consulting and training on SEO strategy.

Do you specialise in any particular sectors?

Simply put, no, we do not specialise in any sector. That being said, the majority of our business is in e-commerce SEO services, where businesses are selling directly through a website. However, we have helped build dozens of high 6 and 7-figure lead generation businesses.

Why do I need A1 SEO when I can hire a specialist in-house?

At some point, it may be better to hire someone in-house, but in our experience, that only happens when your annual SEO costs are more than £70,000.

Using a third-party agency has a lot of benefits, like having a team of e-commerce SEO experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing and the latest trends and developments in search technology and how to boost online stores and e-commerce websites instead of just one person trying to keep up with everything.

With A1 SEO, you get a group of people working on your e-commerce SEO strategy, not just one. You gain experience in many different fields, not just your own, and as we invest in training and development, you get better employees who bring more value to your business more often.

Not only do we take away the risk of hiring the wrong person, but we are also likely to be much cheaper than hiring someone in-house, and most importantly, you can trust us as an e-commerce SEO agency. Trust, Loyalty, and Collaboration (TLC) are the core of how we provide SEO services, and the success of our customers is always our top priority.

WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT FOR E-COMMERCE SEO TO HAVE A CONTENT STRATEGY?

Because people always have questions. They type them into search engines and hope to find what they are looking for. Only if the search engines can find the right answer in the search results can that happen. We help you come up with the best answers so as to increase your website's visibility in relevant search results.

The best content and SEO strategies are those that focus on getting you seen in the searches that bring the best potential customers to your online store or e-commerce website. It's not about being popular or following the latest trend. Instead, it's about your e-commerce website being relevant, easy to reach, and there when customers need you.

The good news is that we've been working on content and e-commerce SEO strategies since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your e-commerce website to rank highly in search engine results.

DO YOU OFFER QUICK FIXES AND "BLACK HAT" E-COMMERCE SEO?

Never. When it comes to digital marketing, search engine optimisation, content creation, reputation management, link building and driving organic traffic, we always use ethical and "white hat" e-commerce SEO strategies to improve rankings in search results and boost online visibility. Quick-fix SEO solutions and fake organic traffic boosts are just a waste of time, and we don't do them.

In a matter of weeks, you can be "number one" on search engine results for a keyword and significantly boost the online visibility of your e-commerce website, but if it is a very popular keyword, the only way to do this is to trick the search engines. Some SEO companies think this is a good solution, but the search engines always figure it out and punish the eCommerce site, so we don't use it. It's short-sighted and doesn't work, so our eCommerce SEO agency stays away from these types of shortcuts.

HOW MUCH DO YOUR E-COMMERCE SEO SERVICES COST?

Starting at £1,200+VAT per month, our SEO company offers a range of e-commerce SEO services. We have a variety of SEO strategies that will work for most growing e-commerce businesses, depending on their needs. We offer free quotes for our eCommerce SEO services as well as free reviews of eCommerce websites so our customers know exactly what they're getting - no hidden costs or bad surprises.

Who is A1 SEO owned by?

A1 SEO is an independent family-run e-commerce SEO company. We are a Limited Company, and our registration number is SC699214.

WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH AN EXPERIENCED E-COMMERCE SEO AGENCY LIKE A1 SEO INSTEAD OF AN AGENCY THAT DOES EVERYTHING?

There are a lot of agencies out there that say they offer "full service" and can do everything. From what we've seen, this is almost never the case. Most of the time, they will be good at some things but not so good at other things. They will say they can do all services, but they will outsource some of them without you knowing. Our SEO company is different because we only offer SEO services to improve your website's visibility in search results and bring organic traffic from your target audience to your online store.

How long are your contracts?

Our contracts for e-commerce SEO services are monthly rolling with a 6-week cancellation policy. We don't tie you into 12 or even 6-month contracts. We are confident in our ability to provide successful e-commerce SEO services and improve search engine visibility within that time frame.
