SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is a marketing strategy that involves optimising a website’s technical configuration, content relevance, and link popularity so that search engines rank its pages higher in the search results with the aim of increasing organic traffic for your business.
Search engines recommend SEO strategies that improve user search experience and page ranking by providing relevant content. This includes using relevant search terms, or keywords, in titles, meta descriptions, and headlines (H1), descriptive URLs with keywords rather than strings of numbers, and schema markup to define the page’s content, among other SEO best practices.

Outreach & Linkbuilding
Often, the number of domains that link to your website is cited as one of (if not THE) most important ranking factor. At A1 SEO Belfast, we've developed a vast network of legitimate websites that we may contact for link building.
If your rivals have a high search engine ranking, they will be developing links at scale. But developing connections is hard work. Let our SEO Belfast experts at A1 SEO Belfast handle your link building efforts; these SEO services are our area of expertise.
At our Belfast SEO company, we offer local SEO services in Northern Ireland, which enable you to attract customers who are looking for goods and services in your neighbourhood. Our local SEO Belfast service concentrates on two search types: local searches and location keywords.
Achieving a high SEO ranking on the first page of Google for a local business website is straightforward. At A1 SEO Belfast, we follow a process that we have refined over the past 10 years to boost your online visibility by ranking higher on Google SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). There's no SEO black magic here – just straightforward tasks. When followed correctly, this process will help boost your website rankings on natural Google listings, including the local map pack of Google Maps and on location-based keywords.
Our SEO agency Belfast, Northern Ireland, also offers on-page SEO services. On-page SEO refers to the components of a page. In most cases, you have direct control over these elements, and they can be altered instantly. Giving on-page SEO the time it deserves assists Google's search engine spiders in assigning relevance to your pages and associates your content with keywords that Google users search for.
At A1 SEO Belfast, SEO services in Northern Ireland include audits. We've got SEO audits down to a TEE. Over the past 5 years, we have audited hundreds of websites and identified the main actionable sticking points in every single one of them.
During the SEO audit, we examine technical, on-page, and off-page (link building) elements of your website pages using several tools, including Google Analytics, to determine the state of your website as a whole.
If you want to know where your website stands with Google and get actionable advice on how to boost its search engine rankings, an SEO audit from A1 SEO Belfast is the perfect starting point.
SEO Consulting & Training
Your staff can improve your website's search performance, but they lack experience. Your in-house team can do a lot with strategic direction, but hiring an SEO specialist is expensive.
A1 SEO Belfast knows that many large companies want to improve their employees' skills and only use outside firms for strategic planning. If you're looking to train your team on SEO Northern Ireland, choose our Belfast SEO company, A1 SEO — we've trained some of the world's largest in-house marketing teams, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams.
At our SEO company Belfast, Northern Ireland, our technical SEO services involve analysing a site for search engines with the aim of making your site Google-friendly. Technical SEO (and on-page SEO) is a foundation for scaling link building and content marketing.
Sites that tell Google more about themselves rank higher on relevant search terms. It's like giving your English-speaking professor a 10,000-word Spanish dissertation. Unless the examiner can read it, good content is useless.
Carried out by our skilled team of Belfast SEO experts, our technical SEO delivers. How soon you'll see outcomes from our Technical SEO service depends on how quickly A1 SEO Belfast can start on your website.
Technical SEO gives us full control and visibility over your SEO campaign, with link building campaigns that yield immediate results. Google takes time to reassess your site's quality, but you should see an increase in rankings after this work is done.
White Label SEO
A1 SEO Belfast manages the SEO strategies for some of the largest digital marketing firms in the UK. We know client staffing, onboarding, and account maintenance can be difficult. A1 SEO Belfast's short, mid, and long-term options help take the pressure off new clients.
Our white label SEO focuses on link building. Most agencies don't have the time or expertise to get this part of an SEO campaign right. We provide comprehensive technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research, and reporting services for agencies without their own SEO team or those going through staff changes.
If you can outsource a large part of your SEO strategy, you can take on more clients without rushing to hire. We are always available for phone calls and in-person meetings with the end client or agency.
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 you on 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 an SEO strategy.
After the onboarding stage, you will already have deliverables being completed against your account, and the clock will be ticking towards increased Google 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 of our clients to commit to regular, ongoing catch-ups, ideally on a bi-weekly basis.
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!
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!
Technical SEO Sprint
During the niche analysis and early link building stages, our technical SEO team will be in the background working their magic. As technical SEO Belfast consultants, we run tests to 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 during SEO campaigns.
SEO Scale Up
The previous steps in the SEO campaign 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 Belfast 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 keyword competition. Even when partnering with top Belfast SEO experts, SEO takes time. An SEO campaign should yield results in 6–12 months. Results are more organic traffic to your website and lead or conversion increases. Any Belfast-based business investing in SEO should expect to see progress within this timeframe, even if you haven't reached your 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 an authoritative resource. This means that sites with more high-quality 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. Measures to enhance the meta description and title tags are examples of this.
What does a Search Engine Optimisation (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 devise an SEO strategy to optimise each page of a website to ensure relevant organic 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 attract the target audience and increase revenue for the company through a well-thought-out marketing strategy.
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 paid advertising initiatives or improve the management of social media accounts in an effort to increase user engagement and website traffic.
What services does A1 SEO Belfast Offer?
As a leading Belfast SEO agency, A1 SEO Belfast offers scalable SEO services to help our SEO clients meet their business objectives, 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, our Belfast SEO agency does 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.
Where is A1 SEO Belfast based?
Our main office in Belfast is 25 Tablot St, Belfast BT1 2LD
Why do I need A1 SEO Belfast when I can hire a specialist in-house?
At some point, it may be better to hire someone in-house rather than using Belfast SEO agencies, but in our experience, that only happens when your annual SEO costs are more than £70,000.
Using a third-party Belfast SEO agency has a lot of benefits, like having a team of experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing 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 our SEO agency Belfast, Northern Ireland, you get a group of people, not just one. You gain experience in many different fields, not just your own, and because 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 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 using keyword research.
The best content strategies are those that focus on getting you seen in the searches that bring the best customers 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 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 website to rank for organic search results.
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 a transparent approach with 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 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 at our SEO company Belfast. 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 professional SEO services. We have a variety of packages that will work for most growing businesses, depending on their needs. Get a quote from us for our SEO Belfast services and a free review of your website by contacting us directly.
Who is A1 SEO Belfast owned by?
A1 SEO Belfast 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 Belfast 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, a marketing agency 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.
At our SEO Belfast agency, we're different because we only offer SEO. This has allowed our team of SEO professionals to specialise in increasing your site ranking and driving more traffic to your website.
How long are your contracts?
Our Belfast SEO services entail monthly rolling with a 6-week cancellation policy. We don't tie you into 12 or even 6-month contracts we are that confident in our abilities.
