LeMans Motors is a mechanic with five workshops across Brisbane, 2.9K monthly organic website visitors, and an $8k+ traffic value. However, they weren’t always getting this large traffic flow.
When we first met with LeMans Motors, they had two workshops and their website was generating minimal organic traffic. They were heavily dependent on Google Ads to generate their traffic and their content wasn’t optimised for search engines.
We created LeMans, an entirely new website that was full of content about their services, their values and how to book in. Every page was optimised to include relevant keywords that would see LeMans appearing in relevant local SEO searches in Brisbane.
The website design took on best practice UX/UI principles to increase the usability of the site. When search engines look to prioritise certain pages, they often search for websites that have excellent design and a sitemap that’s easy to navigate.
The results for LeMans speak for themselves. There was a massive increase in organic traffic which meant that more people were finding LeMans from local SEO searches in Brisbane. This led the monthly value of LeMans to skyrocket.
So, what are the tangible outcomes of this traffic? Due to the huge value increase in traffic, LeMans were able to open two new locations and continue to supply the greater Brisbane region with their brilliant servicing.
Your website is your digital shop, even if you’re not an ecommerce business. It’s where people will first get an idea of who you are and what you do, so it’s important that it’s a great representation of your business. Your website is the place where you will want to prioritise SEO the most as this will be your main point of contact. Optimising your website to show up on search engines means that when people are looking for your business or help within your industry, your website will be in the first few pages of search results.
We take a holistic approach to your marketing. We’re a digital marketing agency that takes a step back to look at the entire picture rather than just looking at your keywords or landing pages. Marketing to us is how your brand is presented overall. We’re never going to sacrifice your unique business identity but rather shape our SEO capabilities to how you want to be presented. A good SEO agency will rank you on google, but an excellent digital marketing agency will improve your overall online presence as well as your SEO.
Similar to marketing, our production services are about presenting your business in the best way possible. We know you don’t cut any corners with your business and neither do we. Our production is custom made with our partners to ensure a high quality output that is perfect for your website. It’s one thing to get high quality pictures for your website, but it’s another thing to get them at the right size so that it doesn’t impact your page load times which is vital for improving your SEO.
We talk a lot about SEO in Brisbane, but what does it mean to have an agency that’s working for you in your city? We’ve helped countless businesses around Brisbane accelerate their SEO results and rank higher on Google. All of our packages can be tailored to suit budgets for small business SEO Brisbane. By optimising your service pages, creating new landing pages, and using a range of local SEO techniques, we can help increase inquiries for your product or services.
Our SEO specialists have a proven track record of helping businesses accelerate their growth and rank higher on Google. Do you want to be our next successful case study?
It’s all in the approach. While every search marketing strategy is different, there’s a generalised approach we take to helping our clients rank. It starts with learning all about your industry and your business, researching your competitors and building on their approaches, and of course tackling each on-page and off-page SEO technique.
You’ll come in for a meeting at our SEO agency, or we’ll come out to you, or we might even do it over Google Hangouts. Either way, we’ll have a meeting where we chat about your business, your industry, and your goals. We’ll learn about what’s important to you and your brand. This will all inform the tailored approach we take to getting you better results.
Our team will dive into the backend of your website, go through your pages, and put together a report that details where your website is at in terms of SEO. We’ll run a full SEO audit on your website too, using top of the line analysis tools from Ahrefs. This will inform us of each technical aspect we need to focus our efforts on to form a solid foundation for your campaign.
Following this, we’ll research your top competitors, what terms they rank for and which of those you would like to target. We’ll create a benchmark — the minimum we’ll need to do to achieve your SEO goals. Our SEOs will determine your competitors, look at their websites and their structures, their content, and their SEO efforts. From there, they’ll create a report and factor the research into your SEO strategy.
Now that we have obtained all of the data and information and have determined the SEO strategy that’s the right fit for you business, we can get your SEO campaign up and running. We’ll share with you our six month plan and how this will be rolled out. This may involve anything from a website redesign to a website copy rewrite, or perhaps it will involve a content marketing strategy.
When you partner with us for a national SEO campaign or a local SEO campaign, we’ll tailor it to your business and your industry. A SEO campaign almost always involves a content marketing strategy. Content marketing is endlessly valuable, particularly to your SEO campaign. We’ll map out a host of content relevant to your industry, business, and most importantly to your SEO strategy.
On page optimisation
Our first item of business in any SEO campaign is on-page SEO techniques. On-page search marketing techniques include rewriting your website copy so that it’s keyword optimised — and engaging so as to convert. Then, we’ll optimise your title tags and meta descriptions (these are how your website’s links appear on Google’s results page). We’ll make sure they’re click-enticing too, so your rankings are fully optimised.
Our SEOs and content writers work together to make sure your internal linking is strategic and that your pages work together to build website authority. Our on-page SEO techniques are key in ensuring everything on the page is perfect in they eyes of Google as well as users.
Once your pages have been optimised using on-page SEO techniques, it’s time to implement off-page SEO techniques. This may include setting up a social media campaign to increase brand mentions, and more importantly, website traffic. We could also devise a Google Ads campaign to increase website traffic and quality leads. Here we are working to boost the authority of your website through targeted, strategic link building.
Monthly Deliverables with Reporting
When it comes to SEO, we prefer to let the numbers do the talking. Our SEO experts take the mystery and complexity out of digital through honest, data-driven campaigns that deliver the traffic and revue goals you aspire to. We supply all of our SEO clients with direct access to live campaign activity. You can watch tasks be completed, track your campaigns progress, see the results and look at your sales as they soar. We’ll show you exactly where your marketing budget is being spent and how it’s turning into an incredible return on investment.
Scale your SEO Campaign and Succeed
The final step to SEO success? Scaling! We’ll up your campaign. Once you’re ranking for all of your initial suburbs or locations, the right products or services, we’ll go further.
Or, we’ll keep at your content marketing and link building to continuously grow the authority of your website’s domain. SEO isn’t about putting in three months of work and staying at the top of Google’s results page forever (unfortunate, we know). It’s about continuity and consistency in new and fresh content and updates. Oh – and adjusting to Google’s (nearly constant) algorithm updates.
To help you make the most informed decision, here are common questions our clients ask us. If you have more questions, you’re welcome to scroll down, fill out the form and we’ll get back to you soon.
Search engine optimisation is how we engineer websites to rank (show up) on search engines like Google, and even Bing and Yahoo if you’re into it. SEO is how we make your website show up in the listings when someone searches a key term for one of your services or your service areas.
SEO covers a range of different techniques that all come together to create a strong, authoritative website with a high chance of ranking on search engines. SEO covers keyword research, SEO copywriting, SEO auditing, link building, CTR optimisation, and way, way more.
To index (list) all the right results when we search a term, search engines need to crawl websites to learn what they’re about, and index them accordingly. Search engines don’t just pick out individual words on websites and randomly index them though.
They take in a number of factors, like all the ones we mentioned up above in ‘Ranking Factors’ and more if you’d believe it. This way when you’re searching for “directions to Chermside” you won’t just receive a bunch of pages like “chermside restaurants”, “chermside car parks”, or even “directions to Gladstone”.
So, SEO works by taking a multi-pronged approach to optimising your website so search engines can crawl it and index it properly.
This will include making sure your website is built and organised logically and structured in the correct way. We’ll optimise each page’s URLs, we’ll look at the title of the page, the words on the page, and the keyword density. We’ll make sure the images and their alt text are optimised for search. And that’s just some of the on-page techniques.
Our SEOs will also work to try and get links back to your website, this might involve some PR work, some influencer marketing, or guest blogging (whitehat only, of course). SEO works by combining a whole series of techniques to help search engines find you.
SEO is all about consistency and patience. For a brand new website, you’ll be looking at three months at the very minimum to begin ranking on Google. And, not to discourage you, but that’s to start ranking, not to rank #1 for ALL OF THE KEYWORDS. Trust us, we’re as bummed about this as you.
It depends on the industry too. So to rank in an industry like formwork or bin cleaning as an example, it won’t take too long. This is because these industries aren’t that competitive (in search engine optimisation terms at least). SEO itself, as well as digital marketing, are probably the most competitive industries when it comes to SEO, for obvious reasons.
Do your research! No two SEO companies are the same. And for many digital marketing agencies, we offer more than one service. So, if you’re wanting to pair your SEO with another marketing avenue, you’ll want to know what else these agencies are offering.
You want to know they’re not dodgy too. The SEO industry is rife with companies that don’t get results. Sometimes it’s in their techniques, which are affectionately known as “black hat” techniques — an example of this is straight out buying spammy, irrelevant links to show you they’ve upped your referring domains (no thanks).
So to choose a quality SEO company, you’ll want to have your goals set out. Ranking higher is a given. But what for? Which services are your bread and butter? Do your Ascot enquiries offer more dosh than your Annerley enquiries? If you’re seriously unsure, agencies can help you define your goals too.
You’ll want to look at the SEO company’s case studies and their reviews. Reviews are typically the best way to find out how reputable a company is. As for the case studies, there’s a chance these could be wildly over embellished, but it’s pretty unlikely. If you take a look at an SEO case study that says they got their client to #1 for X, X, and X, you can just Google it to fact check.
Of course, if you do and the client is actually in #3, this doesn’t mean the agency lied. Google algorithms change every day and rankings fluctuate. If they say their client was #1 and you find the client on Page 6, that’s cause for concern.
The other key to choosing a search marketing company is talking to them. See how well you get along and whether you understand what they’re saying. SEO is confusing, but the agency should be breaking it down for you in a way you understand. They shouldn’t oversell or over promise either. If an agency guarantees you’ll be #1 within a certain timeframe — run.
A strategy is basically a plan or a scheduled approach. So in SEO it’s the plan for how we’re going to get you SEO results. An SEO strategy might start with redesigning and developing your website before rewriting and optimising your website content for search.
Then it might go into rolling out landing pages to target your service keywords and your suburb keywords. THEN, it might detail the blog content we’ll create. A good SEO strategy will have a goal accompanying each and every item.
There’s plenty more that goes into a search marketing strategy. It might include a bit of link building or an accompanying Google Ads campaign, or even a whole digital PR strategy too.
SEO for eCommerce is super duper different (but in a lot of ways the same) to search engine optimization for informational websites. It’s because a lot of standard SEO techniques are based on content, but in eCommerce, it isn’t standard to have a lot of content, particularly on category or product pages. So, it’s all about those categories and product descriptions.
By sending traffic to it! The more traffic, ideally, the more leads, which means more business. Partnering with an SEO agency means you can get your website set up correctly to rank on Google. Partnering with the right SEO agency means you’ll have a website that brings in organic traffic, leads, and
Landing pages truly are the best. They give you a higher chance of ranking for something niche, they give you a higher CTR (click through rate), a higher ROI, and a higher conversion rate. Now we’ve unloaded all those good buzzwords on you…
When your customer searches for your product on Google and they land on your homepage, there’s a lot that can go wrong by the time they’ve opened their cart and are entering their credit card details. They’ve got to find the product, like it, add it to their basket, and make it through the checkout system. Then, after all of that there’s still a chance a $5 delivery fee will throw the whole operation and they’ll exit.
Landing pages eliminate a lot of those early-stage bounce-inspiring issues. When they land on a landing page, the product they’re after and a lot of related products are all right there on the one page. There’s less to be distracted by, less to put them off, less that can go wrong. Landing pages are easier to rank on Google too, easier to optimise, and way, way easier to direct your customer to that blessed ‘Checkout’ or ‘Get in Touch’ button.
Like we said, landing pages are almost too good. Aside from all those extra sales they’re bound to inspire, they make it so much easier to rank. Are you trying to target a few specific suburbs with your services? We’ll create a few landing pages targeting those suburb keywords. Are you trying to rank for a specific service? We’ll optimise a landing page to rank for that service’s key search terms. Landing pages offer your search engine optimisation campaign endless value.
When we talk about on-page SEO, we’re talking about all the things we can do to optimise the content, code, and structure of a web page. So, we might rewrite your copy to make sure it’s optimised for all the right keywords and we might make sure there are plenty of keywords in H1s, H2s, H3s. It’ll continue through the optimisation of all the images and their titles and alt texts on the web page. Then we might look at your URL — is the structure just right? What about your title tags and meta descriptions?
On-page SEO can refer to elements needing optimisation in the backend of your website too. So, your page’s speed, schema codes, and the general crawlability of your website. On-page SEO is an important avenue to tackle before getting to off-page SEO. This is because the on-page side of things sets your website and all its pages up for success that the off-page techniques will build onto.
Once we’ve got the on-page SEO side of things taken care of, it’s time to scale your campaign with off-page SEO. Much like on-page SEO is all about optimising the SEO elements we see on the page. Off-page SEO is all about optimising those elements that do affect your website, but the general website visitor can’t see.
So, when we talk about off-page SEO, we’re talking about link building — making sure there are plenty of high quality, authoritative links pointing towards your content. We might create a social campaign to send more traffic to your website to further boost our SEO efforts. Our content creators might work to get you backlinks through clever, best-practice guest posting, or we might track down unlinked brand mentions.
Link building is one of the most valuable off-page SEO techniques. Quality link building seriously boosts your SEO efforts. Linking to a web page tells Google (or the search engine of your choosing) that that page is valuable, that it shares knowledge, and it’s worth citing. If the link comes from a website that already carries strong authority and decent rankings itself, then it’s even better.
There’s more to it than simply asking for links though. We’ll create fresh, valuable content, perform professional outreach on your behalf, and take all the best-practice avenues to find you those extra links. It means you’ll have a highly engaging, super informative, and most importantly, valuable piece of content attracting all those backlinks from other high-quality, high-authority websites.
All of the FAQ’s can be quite overwhelming, and with all the info about SEO there’s so many improvements to be made. So what are some reasonable steps that anyone can take to improve the SEO of their website and start garnering more rankings on google?
We’re broken a few suggestions down below of ways that you can optimise your website to get a few quick wins. If you want an opinion on what you should prioritise or if you want some extra help, please don’t hesitate to send us an enquiry.
Keywords are words that search engines scan for when they’re reviewing your site to cross reference them when people search for like terms. So when you’re looking for a cafe open near you, your search engine will find a business that closely matches what it thinks you’re looking for.
A great way that you can start initiating change on your website is to start researching what terms people are looking for when they would be looking for your business. So if you are a local cafe, you can optimise your page to include phrases that people would search for regularly. If you’re operating out of Newstead, you will want to include terms on your website like “local newstead cafe” or “coffee shop in newstead” so that people will find these quicker when searching on google.
There are plenty of ways you can research keywords. A couple ways is to search like terms on google and see what the suggested search items are. You can also find some websites that rank keywords and provide recommendations. We spend a bit of money on Ahrefs which we believe is the best in the business for analysing keywords and providing the best recommendations for your business.
So you’ve got some keywords on all of your major pages, what’s the next step on your keyword journey? That would be prioritising long form content. This is a pretty marketing heavy term and we’re going to break it right down for you.
What’s an example of long form content? The first and we think the best example of long form content is the creation of a blog. This is a great idea for two reasons, firstly it shows search engines that you are constantly producing new content and secondly, it positions your brand as an industry leader.
Through creating a blog that has around 800 to 1000 words that use relevant keywords to that topic, it shows search engines that your website is an authority on this issue. Regular content being uploaded to your website also entices people to visit your website at a greater frequency. When people are seeking out your content this is called direct organic traffic and works with your website to boost your SEO.
The benefits also aren’t just there for your SEO. When people see that you’re publishing long form content on topics in your industry it does wonders for your branding. So if you’re a local cafe that’s publishing blogs on why certain milks should be used with certain beans, people are more likely to think you know what you’re talking about and may be more likely to frequent your business.
So you’ve got a great website, but finding the right copy for each page can be time consuming. You may just end up copying and pasting a bunch of sections to pad out your website to make it look better.
Actually it turns out that this isn’t great for your SEO. By duplicating content on your website frequently you’re damaging your street credibility with google. Search engines won’t prioritise your content when most of the copy on your website appears on all of your pages.
The most common culprit of this is what you’re reading now! The FAQ’s. Previously FAQ’s were a great way for businesses to pad out their content with dense keywords and a large word count. They were also able to pop these on every page and see the rankings pull through for all of their pages on search engines. But now this is sadly not the case and now most FAQ sections you’ll see won’t feature any duplicated content.
