    How We Work

    Strategy

    Every local SEO strategy starts with an audit, that way we in agreement with you, we can best plot our course to get you where you want to be.

    Goals

    Not something we shy away from here, we are ambitious but realistic. So from the outset, we look at what would make this a success for your business.

    Do The Work

    This is where we spend most of our time, obviously. We can’t get you results without actually doing the work!

    Results & Improve

    We are always tracking what works and what doesn’t, this way we are constantly improving your campaigns.

    It worked for this local business

    Before Arken

    This client was new to all things local SEO, they had tried to do it themselves and weren’t getting very far in a competitive market.

    After Arken

    Fast forward 6 months and they’ve had a massive uptick in overall performance. This only includes the results from the GMB listing, not the rankings they have also gained in organic SERPs.

    and these too

    Our Proven Approach To Doing Local SEO

    Local Keyword Research

    Before we start any local SEO campaign, we need to make sure we’re targeting the best possible keywords for your local business. So we undertake a full keyword research audit to make sure not only are we targeting all the keywords that are relevant to you. 

    But also during this phase, we will uncover some hidden gems for your business.

    Organic Listing Optimisation

    Not only do we want you to appear in the “map pack” (the map listings at the top of a local search), but we also want to get you listed in the organic listings for the local search terms. 

    This starts with getting your website properly optimised. We go above and beyond other local SEO agencies, because we not only want you to get as much traffic as possible, we want you to convert as many of those visitors as possible into paying customers.

    Google My Business Optimisation

    This is how we get you on the map. We need to go in here to fully optimise your listing to show up as high as possible. Not only will we be optimising what’s already there, but with you, we will be creating a content plan that we will implement within your GMB listing.

    If you aren’t making the most out of your GMB listing you’re missing out on a lot of potential new business.

    Local Link Building

    Link building is a crucial part of any SEO campaign and Local is absolutely no different. We focus on getting your business listing and linked from the most relevant sites to your business. 

    Just like word of mouth, we want people talking about your business, but in this case, online. Links are similar to votes, and we want links from reputable sources, ideally with a local connection to your area. This includes local citations.

    Review

    We are constantly reviewing our work, at every stage. But it’s important to point out why we do this, we do it to better our service and serve you better. Not every campaign works in every industry and some work better than others.

    We as a team are always looking for improvement, and without reviewing this doesn’t happen.

    Got any questions?

    Absolutely, this is quite common among our local SEO clients. Get in touch and we’ll be happy to go through any questions you have and explain our process in as much detail as you’d like.

     

    You can either book a meeting with us on the form on this page, or if you’d rather have a quick chat over the phone feel free to call us.

    If you don’t know what SEO is, you’re probably in the wrong place. But for those of you who do not know that Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is. SEO is optimising things (not always sites) for search engines, the biggest are Google, Youtube & Bing. But any search engine can be optimised, eBay & Amazon are other examples.

    As with any business endeavour, a certain degree of patience is necessary. The market today is incredibly competitive, so it can take time for your site to reach a desirable ranking.

     

    Aside from this, there are factors that influence the time required to reach a good ranking. These include:

     

    1. Your website’s age. Newer sites may require more time.
    2. The level of your domain authority. A higher domain authority translates to a greater search engine ranking.
    3. Your content’s quality. Quality determines your website’s traffic and the amount of visitor engagement.
    4. Use of keywords. Selecting the right keywords is vital for website ranking.

     

    Sometimes, special circumstances can have an adverse effect on your site’s ranking. For example, a website penalty or the work of an irresponsible SEO agent can slow down your site’s progress. In our experience, it’s best to not try and fix these mistakes. Instead, the better alternative is to start a new website from scratch.

    It depends. Typically we don’t take on clients with a lower budget than £500/month, however, this does change depending on your market. For example, a local business will usually cost less than an eCommerce business. The best thing is to get in touch and we can give you a better idea of the cost.

    We provide affordable local SEO services, not to be confused with cheap.

    After you get in touch (unless you’ve booked a meeting directly), we go ahead and do some initial research on your business to see where you are currently. Then we’ll get together to have a quick chat about your business and the goals you hope to achieve. From then we can see if we’re a good fit for each other.

    We have a lot of methods, as any company should. These include:

    • Linkable Assets - Our personal favourite
    • Images
    • Digital PR
    • Guest Content
    • Skyscraper

    We tailor our approach depending on the market.

    No. The reason we don’t offer ‘packages’ is more often than not people will misbuy a package thinking that they need X to rank their site. When in actual fact they need X + Y or they overbuy and spend too much money. 

     

    We do have set fees for certain tasks, such as an audit (size dependant), but we stay away from packaging a monthly service because we tailor it to what your business needs.

    Absolutely, book a call and we can go through the steps needed to sort it.

    Monthly reporting with all the KPI’s, such as rankings, traffic, local visibility (for local campaigns) and revenue.

    Most businesses can benefit from SEO, eCommerce and local are perfect for SEO.

    A linkable asset is something that will be of use to other websites, think along the lines of calculators or just a general information piece. 

     

    For example, here is a great piece on Ahrefs that explains the process in more detail
