OVERVIEW

The practice of adjusting Magento eCommerce sites’ technical settings, content relevancy, and link popularity in order to improve web search engine rankings for its pages is known as Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Search engines promote SEO tactics that raise page and search engine rankings and improve user search experience by offering valuable information. This involves, among other SEO best practices, the use of competitive industry keywords in meta tags and headings (H1), descriptive Magento URLs with meta keywords instead of strings of numbers, and schema markup to specify the content of the page.

Most of the time, you have direct influence over these factors, and you can change them right away. Our on-page Magento SEO services are centred around creating a Google-friendly website that has relevant copy and does not contain duplicate content.

At A1 SEO, we know the SEO audit process inside and out. As part of our Magento SEO services, we have evaluated hundreds of websites that use the Magento platform over the past five years and have determined the key, fixable sticking spots in each and every one.

Our SEO agency uses a variety of methods to assess technical, on-page, and off-page (link building) components in order to assess the overall health of your Magento site. From page speed to the quality of your content, we assess everything.

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

SEO Consulting & Training

Your team can try to make your website's search performance better, but they may lack experience. Strategic guidance from an experienced Magento SEO consultant can help your in-house team accomplish a lot, but hiring Magento SEO experts is pricey.

A1 SEO is aware that many big businesses prefer to develop the talents of their own workers and only hire outside organisations for strategic planning. Some of the biggest in-house marketing teams in the world, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams, have been educated by our team of SEO industry experts.

A Magento SEO specialist from our SEO company, A1 SEO, can offer many practical Magento SEO tips and help you solve Magento SEO problems you might be encountering.

Technical SEO

Our technical SEO services involve examining your Magento store for search engines. 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 English professor a 10,000-word dissertation in Spanish. Good material is useless if the examiner cannot read it.

Technical SEO is effective. Its success will depend on the speed at which our Magento SEO experts at A1 SEO can begin working on your website that uses a Magento extension.

With our technical Magento SEO services, we have total control. A link building Magento SEO campaign can produce instant results. Google takes some time to evaluate your Magento store 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 campaign. Our SEO agency is 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 strategy. 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. We are always available for phone conversations and in-person meetings with the agency or final client.

OUR PROCESS

1

Onboarding

Once your contract is signed, we will begin our onboarding process. The onboarding process of our SEO agency kicks off the entire Magento SEO campaign. From here, we will brief you on the results of your website's on-page, off-page and technical SEO audit. Our Magento SEO experts 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 put together a Magento SEO 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, the expert team at our SEO company will have spent a considerable amount of time familiarising themselves with your segment of the eCommerce industry and will reach out to arrange a deep dive call to go through our proposed strategy. This allows us to gain feedback and tailor the strategy further to meet your SEO goals. We expect all our clients to commit to regular catch-ups, 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 Magento 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 Magento store 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 Magento SEO experts will crawl through your Google Search Console account to find the biggest opportunities for external links. We look for product and category 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 five!

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 tests on all of our clients' 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 sprint is repeated every single month.

6

SEO Scale Up

The previous steps in the Magento SEO strategy crafted by our team of professionals tends to take 1-3 months. By this point, you will begin to see movement in the SERPs (search engine results pages) 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 designed to scale up nicely. At this stage, it is a case of being aggressive with publishing new content, optimising older pieces of content, getting rid of duplicate 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 keyword competition. That being said, SEO should yield results in 6–12 months. Results are increased organic traffic and leads or conversions. Magento websites investing in SEO should expect to see progress within this timeframe, even if they haven't reached their goal.

How does link building help SEO?

One strategy in search engine optimization (SEO) is link building, which sends a message to search engines like Google that your website using the Magento platform, or any other eCommerce platform, is an authoritative resource. This means that sites with more backlinks will likely rank higher.

What is on-page optimisation in SEO?

On-page optimisation, also known as on-page SEO, is the process of enhancing a website's search engine rankings through changes made on the page itself. Creating meta keywords using keyword research, or enhancing the CSS files, are examples of this.

WHAT DOES A SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (SEO) SPECIALIST DO?

When a website is tested, analysed, and modified by an SEO specialist to be search engine friendly, it rises in the rankings on major search engines like Google and Bing.

In order to increase website traffic, lead volume, and brand awareness, an SEO expert will optimise each page of a website to ensure relevant search 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 revenue for the company.

An SEO Specialist can do wonders for a business by increasing its website's Google rankings through the use of keyword research and SEO 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 and website traffic.

What services does A1 SEO Offer?

A1 SEO offers scalable Magento SEO services, focusing on link building, content optimisation, technical and local SEO, SEO consulting and SEO training.

Do you specialise in any particular sectors?

Simply put, no, we do not specialise in any sector. That being said, the majority of our SEO services are focused on eCommerce SEO, 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, experienced Magento SEO agency has a lot of benefits. You gain a team of experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing, can divulge the latest Magento SEO tips and have insight into the newest trends and developments in search technology instead of just one person trying to keep up with everything. Also, one person in-house gets called into meetings, can call in sick, and needs at least a month off every year.

With A1 SEO, you get a group of people, not just one Magento SEO consultant, tending to your business needs. 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 your Magento SEO agency. Trust, Loyalty, and Collaboration (TLC) are the core of how we do business, and the success of our customers is always our top priority.

Why is it so important for 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 can that happen. We help you come up with the best answers.

The best SEO strategy is one that also focuses on content to help you be seen in the searches that bring the most relevant customers to your Magento website. It's not about being popular or following the latest trend. Instead, it's about being relevant, easy to reach, and there when customers need you.

The good news is that we've been working on content strategies since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your e Commerce website to rank. We ensure you do not have duplicate content on your site but rather feature fresh, interesting content that will catch the eye of your target segment.

Do you offer quick fixes and "black hat" SEO?

Never. When it comes to digital marketing, search engine optimisation, content creation, reputation management, and link building, we always use ethical and "white hat" methods. Quick fixes and fake boosts are just a waste of time, and we don't do them.

You can be "number one" for a keyword in a few weeks, but if it is a very popular keyword, the only way for SEO agencies to do this is by tricking the search engines. Some companies think this is a good solution, but the search engines always figure it out and punish the site, so we don't use it. It's short-sighted and doesn't work in the long term.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR MAGENTO SEO SERVICES?

Starting at £1,200+VAT per month, we offer a range of Magento SEO services. We have a variety of packages that will work for most growing businesses, depending on their needs. Get a quote from us and a free review of your website by contacting us directly.

Who is A1 SEO owned by?

A1 SEO is an independent family-run SEO company.  We are a limited company. Our registration number is SC699214.

WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH A MAGENTO SEO AGENCY LIKE A1 SEO INSTEAD OF AN AGENCY THAT DOES EVERYTHING?

There are a lot of agencies out there that say they offer a "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. We're different because we only offer SEO services.

How long are your contracts?

Monthly rolling with a 6-week cancellation policy. We don't tie you into 12 or even 6-month contracts — at our Magento SEO agency, we are just that confident in our abilities.
