What our clients say

What to expect when working with us

Project Start


Keyword research & SEO strategy

We start from the top down, not all keywords are created equal. We find keywords that are super relevant and are likely to influence a sale. Although traffic is the ultimate goal, we want traffic that is going to benefit your business.

We do this through proper targeting, and we can only find the targets, with keyword research. This is where all Cardiff SEO agency campaigns begin, it is perhaps the most important part of any campaign.


Technical SEO

All our Cardiff SEO agency campaigns begin with a technical site audit, depending on the size and structure of your site will determine the level of analysis. A local business will require less work than an eCommerce store with 300 products for example.

We need to make sure the rest of the steps we take will work as it should, this starts with having a technically sound website.


On-page SEO optimisation

The intent of a keyword or a page is becoming more and more important. We compare your pages to similar pages that match the intent and then create content briefs around that.

If we compare a post roundup with a product category page we are going to be mixing with intents and giving the visitor a worse experience.


Content creation

Good content is going to help every aspect of the SEO services campaign, it will help us generate more links, it will help us sell more products and it will help us rank.

We create content that engages readers and sells your products.


Outreach & off page SEO

The final piece of the puzzle, going through all the steps will make the links we build so much more effective.

In the previous step we will have created content worth link to, but it doesn’t happen by itself, we promote the hell out of our linkable assets. Link building is a key part of any Cardiff SEO campaign.

A lot of SEO services providers don’t offer link building, because it’s difficult. But because it’s difficult is the reason it’s still a massive ranking factor.



SEO is an ongoing process, and isn’t an overnight success. But once we’ve gone through all of this we can then start delivering results for your business.


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.

This isn’t something that we can simply answer, most of our clients will see progress within the first 3 months of working with us. How much depends on a lot of factors, such as the market you’re in, your starting point, and the age of your website. 

However the more competitive markets can take from 4-16 months to see huge results.

It depends. Typically we don’t take on clients with a lower budget than £750/month, however this does change depending on your market. For example a local business might cost less. The best thing is to get in touch and we can give you a better idea of the cost.

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.

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.

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

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

Well, this depends on what you’re looking for and how savvy you are with SEO.

Our agency has skilled professionals with years of experience in implementing the best SEO services. So if you’re looking for an expert touch, then it’s a good idea to reach out.

Furthermore, if your website has existing SEO that’s performing poorly, you may require a professional to assess the situation. In this case, you should strongly consider reaching out to our agency.

However, if you feel that you can implement promising SEO practices on your own, then you might find our guide to B2B SEO helpful!

If you’re really not sure about whether or not you need an agency, feel free to contact us. We’ll go over your website free of charge, and let you know what work needs to be done on it. You can then decide accordingly.

When choosing what service to use or product to buy, most users don’t bother to scroll past the first page of Google or Bing, so if you’re not on the first page, you’re nowhere. A better Google ranking = more customers. It’s that simple. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a process of optimising your website to improve its performance in search engines.

At Arken, we work in partnership with our clients to improve all aspects of site performance, which translates into higher rankings and more customers.

Put simply, Cardiff SEO is about ensuring that when your customers are searching online, your business is seen by the highest number of people possible. A higher search engine ranking means more visitors and more customers.

SEO connects you with customers who are searching for your business, product or service. It’s an essential investment for any business that wants to grow.

Here at SEO Cardiff, we pride ourselves in building real relationships with our clients. We prioritise tailoring our services specifically to meet your needs – we want your business to succeed just as much as you do!
