OVERVIEW

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the technical configuration, content relevancy, and link popularity of a WooCommerce website to help web directories rank your blog pages, category pages and product pages higher.

Search engines suggest SEO strategies to improve user search experience (UX) and page ranking by delivering relevant content. SEO best practices include using relevant target keywords in titles, meta descriptions and headings on product category pages, as well as descriptive URLs with keywords instead of strings of numbers and schema markup to define your page’s content.

SERVICES

Outreach & Linkbuilding

The number of domains linking to your site is often referred to as one of the most important ranking factors, if not the most important one. We at A1 SEO have built a huge network of legitimate sites that we may reach out to for link building purposes.

If competing WooCommerce stores have a high SERP (search engine results pages), then they will be building external and internal links at a rapid rate. But building links is a lot of work. Leave the link building of your WooCommerce store to A1 SEO; this is what we do best.

Local SEO

Local SEO allows you to draw in customers who are searching for products and services in your local area. Local SEO focuses on two types of searches: local queries and location keywords.

Ranking a local WooCommerce site is easy. Here at A1 SEO, we use a process that we've honed over the last decade. There is no SEO magic here – just simple tasks. When done right, this process will improve your website‘s ranking in local map packs and location-based keywords.

On-Page SEO

On-page SEO is all about the elements on a page. Most of the time, you're in control of these elements, and you can change them right away.

Giving on-page SEO all the attention it deserves helps Google rank the product and category pages of your WooCommerce store for relevance and links your content to keywords that Google users search for.

SEO Audits

If you're looking for help getting your website to rank higher in search rankings, A1 SEO has got you covered. We've done SEO audits on hundreds of WooCommerce websites over the last 5 years to make them more SEO friendly, and we've found the main things that need to be fixed. We look at the technical stuff, the on-page stuff, and the off-page stuff too. We use a number of different tools to figure out where your WooCommerce site is in the rankings.

So if you're looking for actionable tips on how to get your WooCommerce site to rank higher, an A1 SEO audit is the way to go.

SEO Consulting & Training

Your team can help your website rank higher in Bing and Google's search results, but they don't have the experience to do it. Your internal team can make a big difference with strategic direction on, for example, choosing the best SEO plugins or learning how to efficiently manage an SEO campaign, but it's expensive to hire an SEO consultant.

A1 SEO knows that most big companies want to upgrade their employees' skills, and they only use outside companies for strategic planning. They've worked with some of the biggest in-house marketing departments in the world, like FMCG and B2B, as well as B2C teams.

Technical SEO

When it comes to technical SEO, it's all about making your site as friendly to search engines as possible. It's the basis for linking up and content marketing, and sites that tell Google a bit more about themselves tend to rank better. It's a bit like giving your Spanish professor a ten-thousand-word dissertation - if they can't read it, it's no use.

But technical SEO delivers - it depends on how fast you can get A1 SEO up and running on your site.

Plus, technical SEO gives you full control, so link building campaigns give you immediate results. It takes time for Google to reassess the quality of your site, but once it's done, you should start to see an improvement in your rankings.

White Label SEO

If you're one of the UK's biggest digital marketing companies, you can trust A1 SEO to take care of your WooCommerce SEO campaign. We know how hard it can be to hire, onboard, and keep track of your clients. A1 SEO has short-term, mid-term, and long-term plans that make it easier for a new client to get started.

Our white label SEO is all about link building - most agencies don't have the time or know-how to do it. If you don't have your own WooCommerce SEO team or are going through a change of personnel, we can help with technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research and reporting.

If you want to take on more clients quickly without having to hire, outsourcing a big chunk of your SEO process is the way to go. We're always available for phone calls and face-to-face meetings with the client.

OUR PROCESS

1

Onboarding

Once your contract is signed, we will begin our onboarding process. Our onboarding process kicks off the entire WooCommerce SEO campaign. From here, we conduct 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 and the performance of our WooCommerce SEO services. At this stage, we also ask you to fill out a couple of forms to help our internal teams put together an eCommerce 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 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 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 WooCommerce 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 all category pages and every product page of your eCommerce website. This way, we can determine 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 WooCommerce SEO 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!

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 industry and keyword competition. If all goes according to plan, and with our WooCommerce developers and consultants, it will, SEO should yield results in 6–12 months. The results are increases in leads or conversions and more organic traffic to your online store.

Any WooCommerce store 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?

An important aspect of your SEO strategy is link building, which sends a message to search engines like Google that your website is an authoritative resource. This means that WooCommerce 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 on an eCommerce platform is tested, analysed, and modified by an SEO specialist to be SEO friendly, it rises in the rankings on major search engines like Google and Bing.

To increase website traffic, the awareness of your brand online and lead volume, a WooCommerce expert will optimise the category pages and product pages of a WooCommerce store to ensure they show up in relevant search results and create a positive user experience. In other words, a 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 your online store.

A WooCommerce specialist can do wonders for an online store on eCommerce platforms by increasing its Google ranking in search results through the use of keyword research and 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. Every SEO ranking factor is considered to increase user engagement and website traffic.

WHAT WOOCOMMERCE SEO SERVICES DOES A1 SEO OFFER?

A1 SEO offers scalable SEO services tailored for eCommerce platforms. We focus on link building, creating helpful user- and SEO-friendly content, removing duplicate content, 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 an eCommerce platform or on their own 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 exceed £70,000.

Using a third-party SEO agency has a lot of benefits, like having a team of eCommerce 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-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. 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. Most importantly, you can trust us as your 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 SEO IMPORTANT TO PUT ALONGSIDE 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 strategies are those that focus on getting you seen in the searches that bring the most 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 eCommerce websites to rank.

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

Never. When it comes to digital marketing, content optimisation (such as product page optimization on WooCommerce websites), 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 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. 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 WooCommerce 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 eCommerce site 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 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 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 our eCommerce SEO company only offers SEO services.

How long are your contracts?

Monthly rolling with a 6-week cancellation policy. Our eCommerce SEO company doesn't tie you into 12 or even 6 month contracts we are that confident in our abilities as a WooCommerce SEO company.
