SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the process of optimising a website’s technical configuration, content relevance, and link popularity in order to improve its position in search results.

By providing pertinent and optimised content, search engines recommend SEO strategies that enhance the user search experience and page ranking. This includes, among other SEO best practices, the use of relevant keywords in titles, meta descriptions, and headlines (H1), descriptive URLs with keywords rather than sequences of numbers, and schema markup to define the page’s content.

Outreach & Linkbuilding

The number of domains that link to your website is frequently cited as one of (if not THE) most significant factors when it comes to ranking high in search results. A1 SEO has developed an extensive network of legitimate websites that can be contacted for link building.

If your competitors have some of the top positions in search results, they have been building links on a massive scale. However, establishing connections is arduous. This is A1 SEO's area of expertise, so allow us to manage your link building efforts.

Local SEO

Local SEO allows you to attract potential customers who are searching for local businesses like yours offering pest control services and other services related to the industry. Local SEO focuses on two categories of searches: local searches and location-based keywords.

Local search engine optimisation is straightforward. A1 SEO follows a procedure that has been refined over the past decade. Here, there is no SEO black magic; only straightforward duties. This procedure, when followed correctly, will increase your business page and website's rankings in the local map pack and local citations, and for location-based keywords.

On-Page SEO

On-page SEO refers to a page's main components. In the majority of instances, you have direct control over these elements, and they can be modified immediately. Giving on-page SEO the attention it deserves helps Google designate your pages' relevance and associate your content with keywords that Google users search for, thus sending more traffic to your pest control company's website and giving you more new customers.

SEO Audits

At A1 SEO, our SEO audits are second to none, thanks to our attention to detail. We have audited hundreds of websites over the past five years and identified the primary actionable sticking points in each one.

Using a variety of tools, we analyse the technical, on-page, and off-page (link building) aspects of your pest control website to determine its overall health.

A1 SEO's audit is the ideal starting point if you want to know where your pest control website stands with Google and receive actionable advice on how to raise your rankings in search results and get more business enquiries.

What We Audit
Navigation & URL structure
Domain & Servers
Website Load Speed

SEO Consulting & Training

Your staff can enhance the search performance of your pest control company website, but they may lack experience. Strategic direction is a field in which the internal team of most pest control companies can excel, and employing an SEO specialist is costly.

A1 SEO is aware that many pest control businesses want to develop the skills of their employees and rely solely on external firms for strategic planning of SEO services. We have trained some of the largest internal marketing teams in the world, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams, on implementing a successful SEO campaign.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO (including on-page SEO) is a prerequisite for scaling link building and implementing content marketing services. Technical SEO is the examination of a website for search engines. It is important to create a Google-friendly website, ensuring elements like site structure and site code are easily understood by Google.

Sites that provide Google with more relevant and valuable information about themselves rank higher. It is the equivalent of handing your professor who speaks English a 10,000-word Spanish dissertation. If the examiner cannot understand it, the content is meaningless.

Effective technical SEO is contingent upon how rapidly A1 SEO can begin working on your website.

Technical SEO provides us with total control. The results of link building SEO campaigns are immediate. Google takes time to reevaluate the quality of your website, but you should see an increase in rankings once the work is complete.

White Label SEO

A1 SEO oversees the SEO strategies of some of the largest digital marketing agencies in the United Kingdom. We recognise that client personnel, onboarding, and account management can be challenging. A1 SEO's short-, medium-, and long-term options help relieve new client strain.

Our white label pest control SEO services emphasise link development. Most organisations lack the time and expertise to perform this task. We offer technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research, and reporting for agencies that do not have their own SEO team or are undergoing personnel changes.

If you can outsource a significant portion of your SEO strategy to a company that has the ability and expertise to specifically implement SEO for pest control, you can accept more clients without having to rush to employ additional staff. We are always available for phone calls and in-person meetings with the agency or final client.

Once your contract is signed, we will begin our onboarding process. Our onboarding process kicks off the entire SEO campaign. From here, 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 pest control SEO strategy's performance. At this stage, we also ask you (with the help of your team of pest control specialists) to fill out a couple of forms to help our internal teams put together an SEO strategy.


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 segment of the pest control 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, whether that be increasing your online visibility or getting more potential customers within your target audience. We encourage all of our clients to commit to regular catch-ups on-going, ideally on a bi-weekly basis.


Niche Analysis

Now we're cooking with gas! Armed with the knowledge gained from the onboarding process and our strategy call, our team of pest control 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 web page of your site and what is required to start moving the needle in an extremely granular way. This process takes anywhere from 20 to 500+ hours!


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 five!


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 benchmark all of our 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.


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 (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 pest control business to date are 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.



A1 SEO has a vast amount of experience. Our SEO experts are familiar with all the current best practices. A1 SEO has collaborated with some of the world’s most rapidly expanding businesses in highly competitive industries. We meticulously plan, work diligently, and possess industry-leading expertise. This helps us gain more traffic for your website and has a significant impact on your pest control company’s revenue. We specialise in increasing keyword rankings, traffic, prospects, and revenue. Our process-based SEO strategies consistently generate a measurable return on investment.

How long does SEO take to work?

This depends on many factors, including your company's industry and keyword competition. SEO takes time, but should generally yield results in 6–12 months. Results include an increase in traffic, qualified leads, and conversions. Any business owner investing in SEO should expect to see progress within this timeframe, even if you haven't reached your final goal.

How does link building help SEO?

One strategy in search engine optimisation (SEO) is link building, which sends a message to search engines like Google that your website is a resource with an established online authority. This means that sites with more high-quality backlinks will likely rank higher, bring more customers to your pest control business, and ultimately lead to business growth.

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. Measures to enhance the meta description and title tags are examples of this.

What does a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) specialist do?

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 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 pest control companies.

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.

An SEO specialist can do wonders for a business offering pest control services 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, improve the management of social media accounts or implement online advertising in an effort to increase user engagement and website traffic.

What services does A1 SEO Offer?

A1 SEO offers scalable SEO services, focusing on link building, content optimisation, technical SEO, 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 business is in 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 pest control SEO agency has a lot of benefits, like having a team of experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing strategies and the latest trends and developments in search technology instead of just one person trying to keep up with everything. Also, one person in the 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 dedicated account manager. 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 agency. Trust, Loyalty, and Collaboration (TLC) are the core of how we do business, and managing successful SEO campaigns for all 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 so that your pest control company can rank as the solution to their queries.

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

The good news is that we've been working on strategies to produce high-quality content since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your website to rank with your target audience and increase website visitors.

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

Never. When it comes to digital or internet marketing, search engine optimisation, content creation, reputation management, and link building, we pride ourselves on being an ethical pest control SEO company and, therefore only use "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 to do this is to trick 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, so we don't do it.

How much do you charge for your services?

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

Who is A1 SEO owned by?

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

Why should I work with an 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, like the SEO services, without you knowing. We're different because we only offer and specialise in SEO.

How long are your contracts?

We offer monthly rolling contracts with a 6-week cancellation policy. We don't tie you into 12- or even 6-month contracts as we are that confident that our SEO services will help attract more potential clients to your pest control company.
