OVERVIEW

SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is the process of optimising a website’s technical configuration, content relevance, and link popularity so that search engines rank its pages higher.

Search engines recommend SEO strategies that improve the user search experience and page ranking by providing relevant content. This includes using relevant SEO 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 Preston, 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 A1 SEO Preston handle your link building efforts; this is our area of expertise.

Ranking a local website is straightforward. At A1 SEO Preston we follow a process that we have refined over the past 10 years. There's no SEO black magic here – just straightforward tasks.

On-Page SEO

On-page SEO refers to the components of a search engine results page itself. 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 in assigning relevance to your pages and associates your content with keywords that the search engine users look for.

SEO Audits

At A1 SEO Preston, 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.

We examine technical, on-page, and off-page (link building) elements using several tools 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 campaign and audit from A1 SEO Preston 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, and hiring an SEO specialist is expensive.

A1 SEO Preston knows that many large companies want to improve their employees' skills and only use outside firms for strategic planning. We've trained some of the world's largest in-house marketing teams, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO analyses a site for search engines. Make 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 other websites themselves rank higher. It's like giving your English-speaking professor a 10,000-word Spanish dissertation. Unless the examiner can read it, good content is useless.

Technical SEO delivers. Technical SEO depends on how quickly A1 SEO Preston can start on your website.

Technical SEO gives us full control. Link building campaigns yield immediate organic search results here. Google takes time to reassess your site's quality, but you should see an increase in rankings after work is done.

A1 SEO Preston 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 Preston's short, mid, and long-term options help take the pressure off the clients, and score client wins.

Our white label SEO focuses on link building. Most agencies don't have the time or expertise to do it. We provide technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research, and SEO reporting 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.

OUR PROCESS

1

Onboarding

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 on your new website that'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 and custom SEO strategies being completed against your account, and the clock will be ticking towards an increased SEO performance. By now, our team will have spent a considerable amount of time familiarising themselves with your industry. This includes competitor analysis, desktop and mobile searches for your website on Google and Bing's search engine combined, 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 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 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. SEO takes time. SEO should yield results in 6–12 months. Results are traffic and lead or conversion increases. Any business investing in SEO services 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 and Bing that your website is an authoritative resource. This means that sites with more backlinks will likely rank higher according to Google, Bing, and other search engines' ranking factors.


Linking to authoritative and relevant sources is one of the best ways to bolster link building, but must be done carefully since search engines rely on link building to determine whether your domain authority website content should be receiving more organic SEO traffic.

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.


Boosting your page on Google and Bing's ranking factors means your website owners need to have excellent on-page SEO and A1 SEO Preston has nearly a decade of experience in creating high-quality articles that transform our digital marketing clients' businesses into authoritative and relevant sites.

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 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 the company.

An SEO Specialist can do wonders for a local 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.

WHICH IS THE BEST SEARCH ENGINE TO FOCUS ON FOR MY BUSINESS?

For most website owners, Google and Bing are the top places that customers go to for their search queries. And out of these two, Google holds the lion's share of mobile searches - more than all other search engines combined.

Our SEO campaigns mainly focus on improving your website's Google search results and generating SEO reports to determine how your website is performing.

What services does A1 SEO Preston Offer?

A1 SEO Preston offers scalable SEO services, focusing on link building, content optimisation, technical SEO, local SEO, blog writing services, SEO consulting and SEO training. It's the marketing solution offered by the best seo agencies, but without any of the fat. Your money is spent on achieving your SEO project, nothing else.

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.


As a leading SEO agency in Preston, we are able to acquire new digital marketing business while maintaining high-value SEO contracts from our existing customer base.

Where is A1 SEO Preston based?

Our main office in Preston is 1 Winckley Square, Preston PR1 3JJ

Why do I need A1 SEO Preston 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 third-party SEO companies have 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 A1 SEO Preston, you get a group of people, 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 agency. Trust, Loyalty, and Collaboration (TLC) are the core of how we do business SEO, 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 relevant and accurate information so that your content will populate a search engine results page.


The best website 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 blogging sites and working on content strategies since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your website to rank and improve your domain authority.

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, our SEO company always uses 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 other search engines first. Many SEO agencies 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.

Don't compromise your business by boosting the site using Google ads, SEO services offered by our Preston SEO services are "white hat" methods for a reason.

How much do you charge for your services?

Starting at £1,200+VAT per month, we offer a range of SEO services. We have a variety of packages that will work for most growing businesses, depending on their needs.


Get an initial free SEO consultation from us which includes a quote and a free review of your website by contacting us directly.

Who is A1 SEO Preston owned by?

A1 SEO Preston 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 Preston 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. 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 in to 12 or even 6 month contracts we are that confident in our abilities.
