What is SEO?

SEO or search engine optimisation is the process of moving higher up Google search rankings. It's also about maintaining those rankings once you have them. 

SEO can be broken down into various branches including:
On page SEO
Content optimisation
Local SEO
Mobile SEO
Technical SEO
Google penalty recovery or removal
Depending on where your website currently appears on Google, and where you'd like it to appear in the future, we'll use a combination of the above types of SEO.

Is SEO important for my website?

There are over 1 billion websites on the internet and roughly 91% of those get no traffic from Google. Since 93% of global web traffic starts it's journey on Google, if you want people to see your website, SEO is going to play a key role.

The role of SEO becomes even more important if you want to turn Google searches into paying customers. Because you usually need a high flow of visitors to a website to achieve this. 

Additional benefits of SEO include:

- Higher trust levels between you and your future customers
- Show your business as a leader in its field
- Create stronger awareness of your brand

Love my new website. Getting a lot more enquiries. Thanks Mark.
I approached DigitalMark as an MA for a £20m SME spending £500k pa on digital marketing. They helped reduce that spend and maintain our sales turnover, increasing our net profit margin which is exactly what we wanted. Definitely recommend.

Mark has been a great help with supporting small and large businesses I work with. Not only has he built some really functional websites but has then helped them rank high within Google in a very timely manner. Always professional and realistic with what is achievable. Hasn't let me down yet (unlinke other agencies out there). Thanks again Mark and look forward to working together more on the future!

What a breath of fresh air!I run a small web application business in the local area and have dealt with a few of the ‘too good to be true’ SEO organisations that promise the world for very little money. Unsurprisingly, I got very little if no results to my website ranking and incoming leads. Digital Mark provided an honest and pragmatic approach to optimising my website content and providing analysis (and more importantly proof) of everything SEO related. I’m now a happy customer with inbound enquires that make for a solid return on the investment. I would therefore highly recommend.

Our SEO Process

1. Campaign roadmap and setup

By the time you agree to a campagin with us we'll already know what you want to acheive. We will have already looked at your competitors and know how to get an edge on them. And we'll already know everything we need to know about your website and the changes we need to make so you can start climbing Google. This is the time for us to plan what steps are needed to achieve it. 

2. Technical SEO

We start all campaigns with technical SEO because we find websites often struggle to improve rankings if they don't have a solid technical foundation. This can be especially true if technical factors are impacting user experience, like slow page load times or other core web vitals. This can be an almost unending process as a perfect technical website isn't a realistic goal, but we've seen it pay to start this process early in a campaign.

3. On page SEO

We'd then say on page SEO is the next most important factor early on in an SEO campaign. We'll take care of the basics first like meta data. The important thing here is to make sure your pages are tighly focused on the keywords that you want to rank for. 

4. Mobile SEO

We see Google crawling websites with its mobile spider bot first more and more these days. So we get to work on improving mobile core web vitals not only to tick boxes for Google, but to give your mobile visitors a better experience. We all hate slow loading websites, especially on our phones. So if your website is like that, we'll get it running fast and looking slick. 

5. Local SEO

For the vast majority of our clients this is the good stuff. It's what's going to get you ranking for "SEO Leeds", if that's what your aiming at. Once all the on page and technical stuff is at a good level we'll start creating specific landing pages, optimised specifically for what you do and where you offer it. 

6. Content optimisation

You'll still need great content if you want to rank at the top of Google. We'll work with you to create content that leaves Google with no option but to rank you higher than your competitors.

Live SEO Reporting with Google Looker Studio

Want a progress report on how your SEO is performing? As a 100% transparent SEO agency, we've developed our own SEO dashboard using Google Looker Studio. All clients can access their SEO dashboard at anytime using their client login. It's a really indepth report but also a fantastic SEO tool. We use ourselves for planning and opportunity spotting. And since it's a live report, the data is always upto date.

Your SEO Dashboard will show you live SEO data and insights including:

    • Organic Traffic
    • Click through rates (CTR)
    • Individual keyword tracking
    • Performance comparisions by period
    • Opportunities for growth
    • Heatmap

Quickly spot opportunities for growth

Pages 2 Keywords and page 1 keywords with low CTR are often overlooked becuase they aren't tracked properly. But these are key areas for growth becuase they are often keywords with a high buying intention.

Track the Keywords that matter with the Digital Mark SEO Dashboard

Site wide SEO metrics like click through rate and Google position don't always provide an accurate picture of website performance, especially if your aim is to increase incoming leads or sales.

The ability to track the keywords that matter gives you a much clearer picture of how your SEO campaign is performing and where to put focus.
Drill down into individual keyword performance and track it over time
Once a month we'll talk you through all the data, explain progress and action plans, and of course answer any questions you have.

This is differant for almost every website and also differant on what is actually meant by "work". Usually between 3 and 6 months is a good yardstick. 
It's possible to do some form of SEO as a one off project but it does work best as a long term commitment. Get in touch if you prefer a one off approach and we'll let you know if it's possible for you.
If by better you mean does it provide more leads at a cheaper cost, then in our experience, yes it's better. Not always, but more often than not, especially in the medium to long term.

Paid ads are brillient for quick results and can be used effectivly while an SEO campaign is in it's early stages. 
It seems to help if you have social signals and social media can generate website traffic. But there are over 200 ranking factors in total. So no we wouldn't say you need social media to get top Google rankings.
Your day to day contact will be the SEO specalist who is actually working on your account. We are a small team and don't have account managers. 
We can run SEO campaigns this way. But we prefer to see our clients face to face if this works for you.
Yes. 100%. We'll never take short cuts. Everything we do is white hate and sustainable. You don't have to worry about Google penalties with us.
That's a tough one. It can take a long time to get them removed. If you have, or think you may have a Google penalty get in touch with us ASAP
Industry wide in Yorkshire between £500 - £1000 per month seems to be the average according to our clients and other businesses we know. Our average SEO client spend is a little over £800 per month.
SEO isn't generally influenced by other forms of marketing. The exception is when people are searching for you by name. For example if they have heard you on the radio or seen a post on social media.
Over time you'll probably lose rankings. It can take 3 - 6 months for you to notice, especially if you've been running a successful SEO campaign for a long time. It can happen faster or slower depending on how competiative your industry is online and how much SEO your competitors are doing.
