OVERVIEW

SEO or search engine optimisation is the practice of adjusting a website’s technical settings, content relevancy, and link popularity in order to improve search engine rankings for its service and product pages.

Search engines promote SEO tactics that raise page ranking and user search experience by offering pertinent information. This involves, among other SEO best practices, the use of relevant 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.

SERVICES

Outreach & Linkbuilding

The number of websites that link to your site 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 are likely building links on a large scale. However, making connections takes effort. As our Shopify SEO experts are pros at link building, let A1 SEO manage your efforts.

Local SEO

You can attract clients who are looking for products and services in your area by using local SEO to increase your online visibility. 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 past ten years. There are only simple tasks involved in this SEO black magic. When properly carried out, this method will improve the rank of your Shopify store on location-based search terms and in the local map pack.

On-Page SEO

The elements of a web 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 product pages, connect your on-site content to popular search terms, and increase your search visibility.

SEO Audits

At A1 SEO, we know everything about how to perform a successful SEO audit. We have evaluated numerous Shopify 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, domain authority, on-page, and off-page components in order to assess the overall health of your site's SEO.

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

SEO Consulting & Training

Although they lack experience, your staff has the capabilities to improve your site's search performance in search engine ranking.

Strategic guidance can help your in-house team accomplish a lot, but it's expensive to hire professional SEO specialists.

A1 SEO is aware that many big businesses want to develop the skills of their workers and only hire outside firms for strategic planning. Some of the biggest in-house marketing teams in the world, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams, have been trained by us.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO is the process of analysing a website for the purpose of optimising it for search engines. The goal is to make the website as friendly to search engines as possible. The cornerstone for scaling link-building and content marketing is technical SEO (including on-page SEO).

A Shopify site that provides more information to Google is ranked higher. It's like handing your English-speaking professor a 10,000-word dissertation in Spanish. Good material is useless if the examiner cannot read it.

Performing technical SEO for Shopify is effective. The speed at which A1 SEO can begin working on your website will affect technical optimisation.

With information gathered from a technical SEO audit, we have total control. A Shopify SEO campaign for link building can produce instant results. Google takes some time to evaluate your site again, but once the work is done, you should see an improvement in search rankings and, in turn, online sales.

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 for Shopify. 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.

If you are able to outsource a significant portion of your SEO strategies, you can expand your client base without having to rush to hire new staff. We are available for telephone and face-to-face meetings with the final 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 campaign. From here, we will brief you on the on-page, off-page and technical audit of your Shopify store. We will also create your own tailored reporting dashboard so you can have complete oversight of your SEO strategy performance. At this stage, we also ask you to fill out a couple of forms to help our internal teams put together a Shopify 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, our team will have spent a considerable amount of time familiarising themselves with your segment in the eCommerce industry and will reach out to arrange a deep dive call to go through our proposed SEO strategy and gain feedback to allow us to tailor this strategy further to meet your SEO goals. We expect all 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 Shopify 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 Shopify 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 Shopify 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 a benchmark on all our clients' Shopify 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 (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 eCommerce business to date are designed to scale up nicely. At this stage of providing our Shopify SEO service to you, it is a case of being aggressive with publishing new content and optimising older pieces of content, building valuable 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. Our Shopify SEO services usually yield results in 6–12 months. Results are more traffic to your eCommerce online store platform and increases in leads or conversions. Any online store investing in an SEO agency 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 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 targeted 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 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 Shopify SEO services, focusing on link building, content optimisation, technical SEO, local SEO, SEO consulting and training.

Do you specialise in any particular sectors?

Simply put, no, our SEO company does not specialise in any sector. That being said, the majority of our business is in eCommerce SEO, where eCommerce 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 Shopify SEO agency has a lot of benefits, like having an in-house team of experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing and the latest trends and developments in the technology and algorithms involved in search results instead of just one person trying to keep up with everything.

With our SEO company, 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 a Shopify 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 content marketing strategies are those that focus on getting you seen in search results and bringing the best customers to your Shopify store. 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, as one of the top SEO agencies, we have been consistently working on content strategies since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your Shopify store to rank.

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

Never. When it comes to digital marketing, search engine optimisation, content creation, reputation management, organic traffic improvement 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 to do this is to trick the search engines. Some companies think this is a good way to provide SEO services, 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 SHOPIFY SEO SERVICES?

Starting at £1,200+VAT per month, we offer a range of Shopify 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 Shopify site by contacting us directly.

Who is A1 SEO owned by?

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

WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH A SHOPIFY 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. 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. We are that confident in our ability to provide a top-quality Shopify SEO service.
