Choosing your perfect SEO company or consultant

How much does SEO cost?

On average, SEO services will cost between £400 - £1,000. Although, this is variable depending on different factors, such as the type of SEO service and potentially the size of your SEO project.

If you’re ready to find an SEO specialist near you but need a clearer idea of the price, read our handy SEO services price guide. You’ll find out just how much your SEO agency or freelancer will charge by the hour and what SEO marketing services typically include.

How do I choose an SEO Expert?

  • Experience

    SEO, the process of optimizing your website to drive organic traffic, is difficult, which also means that it is often misunderstood. Good SEO requires a deep understanding of how search engines work, attention to detail, and constant modifications since Google’s algorithms change almost weekly. Shortcuts like buying links, keyword stuffing, and cloaking can lead search engines to demote your website.

  • Specific goals

    Do not hire an SEO firm with the vague goal of "increasing organic traffic." You should outline exactly what you are hoping to accomplish with SEO, which will inform your SEO specialist's strategy. Examples include boosting product sales, reducing the website’s bounce rate, and increasing your conversion rate.

  • Recommendations

    Recommendations are very useful as the best SEO specialists are too busy optimizing websites for their customers to waste time on their own websites. It can also be helpful to ask other businesses within your industry as they may have used companies or individuals to tackle similar problems.

  • Key Performance Indicators

    Before you choose your next SEO firm or SEO freelancer, you and your consultant must be on the same page when it comes to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). KPIs are metrics that can apply to virtually any aspect of a business and can mean a host of different things within SEO itself. For example, a company with a new product will have different objectives than an older company with an established clientele.

  • Communication skills

    Though you should have access to the tools your SEO expert will use to measure your KPIs; SEMRush, Google Search Console, and Google Analytics, it is most likely that you won’t have time to analyse all the data. Consequently, you need an SEO specialist that is able to interpret and communicate the data to you regularly. Keep in mind that SEO is an ongoing process and results can often take some time to appear, so you could be working with an SEO agency or freelancer for months, or even years.

  • Reporting skills

    A good SEO agency or freelancer should provide full reports on all changes and link building outcomes. All website changes and technical updates or recommendations should be documented along with the date new content pages are created. Without good reports, it is impossible to determine which changes lead to positive or negative changes. Every link created should also be reported so that if something does go wrong you can have the links and content removed.

Approximately 90% of users only look at results on Google’s first page. This means that finding an SEO consultant or agency that works for you has the potential to transform your business. Once you’ve narrowed down your search, make sure that you are clear on your goals. Then establish KPIs to measure those objectives. Most importantly, do not mistake SEO for a ‘buzzword’. Search Engine Optimization is a long-term process that can help you build a successful brand.

What are the best SEO Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to consider?

A good SEO firm will understand which metrics are the most important to your business and can condense that information into something that you can digest. Here are a few of the most important KPIs to consider:

  • Organic sessions - How many people visit your website through organic search? This is often considered the most basic and most important KPI in SEO. You can also look at other factors like the average number of page views, duration per visit, number of unique visitors, and bounce rate.
  • Conversion rate - What percentage of visitors buy your product, sign up for your newsletter, or engage with your content?
  • Keyword rankings - Which keywords do you rank for and have your keyword rankings increased since you hired your SEO firm/freelancer?
  • Google crawling - Google crawling is the process by which a Google bot systematically indexes your website’s content. If Google struggles to read your website, it cannot index it in a way that shows up in search which negatively impacts organic traffic.
  • Page load time - The time it takes for a page to load directly correlates to how quickly people leave your site. If you have a slow loading time, your bounce rate could increase by as much as 90 percent.

How do I check my SEO Consultant’s credentials?

SEO experts may have a degree in business, marketing, communications, or information technology. They will also have one to three years’ experience in online marketing. It is also worth looking out for experts with online SEO certifications and training.

Before you choose an SEO Specialist, you could ask to speak to past clients to get references from previous projects. You could also read customer reviews on their Bark profile.

The Maratopia Offer A FREE WEBSITE AUDIT and SEARCH SPACE ANALYSIS comprising: - Onsite Technical Audit - Core Web Vitals - Competitor Analysis - Competitor Backlink Analysis - Keyword Traffic Estimates for each top 10 Google position - Forensic Analysis for each top 10 position for main keywords showing 21 key ranking drivers, the blueprint for top 10 success! - Leading to a costed Strategy Document with 40-50 pages of analysis, detailing the precise issues needing to be addressed to beat named competitors. Request it free online here if you wish https://www.maratopiadigitalmarketing.co.uk/marketing/technical-seo-site-audit/ The deal is this: We're going to do 2-3 days of work for free to prove to you we know what we're talking about and to demonstrate exactly what is required to climb Google It's not magic, or false promises, it's fact. In return we absolutely need a brief conversation by phone or email, and to understand your budget, before we embark on this free work. We are a Digital Marketing and Web Design Agency based in Huddersfield Yorkshire. We work with ambitious and challenger brands as well as local businesses and practices. At Maratopia we're results driven, our first question to you is "what does good look like to you?" Maratopia's mission is to be our clients' most trusted advisor, so understanding your needs, your priorities is our first goal, getting you the results required is a very close second. Maratopia's sweet spot is for Search Engine Optimisation (incl International, Technical & Link / Earning/Building) and as Web Designers we bake in good SEO into any web design or development project. We have a top team of copywriters, technical SEO strategists, and are experts at acquiring backlinks. To give you the best price for any SEO project, we need just a few details from you. Why ? Because in SEO it is not one size fits all. Your position on Google is different for every keyword, on different devices with different people. Check yourself, searching incognito. We need to know: Your website, and if there is a new one about to launch, don't wait for it to go live! Many developers make a mess of the launch and lose all your hard earned positions by not understanding about redirects, and url structure. The types of keywords you feel you want to be found on (eg your goods and services), don't worry we'll work on keyword selection once hired, we just want an initial heads up from you. 3-4 competitors, we want to analyse what they do well to see what it takes to get ahead of them. This is why every project is different. Once you have given us this little bit of information we will -Audit your website to see if the website is breaking Google's guidelines and SEO / Content Good Practice; and to understand what additional work may need to be done onsite -Perform a backlink audit of your site and your competitors. Once everyone has good onsite SEO, it's all about the quality and subject matter of the sites that link to you (if anyone tries to sell you these cheaply there WILL be a catch). - We will assess how many quality back links you need, where and covering what subjects - We will cleanse any toxic links - We will consider the best ways and the best battles to fight in order to get you found. How much does it cost? Well because of everything we have said, it depends on the state of your site, the size of your site your backlink profile and all that relative to your competitors, and how quick you want and need results. There are no short cuts, just smarter strategies. That said we work with different customers at different budget levels. We can obviously work quicker and get quicker results with a larger budget, but we are realistic enough to work with smaller budgets. The approach is the same: - Fix the priority on site issues - Remove toxic links - Then work on growing backlinks How do we grow backlinks? With our team of talented copywriters, crafting great non spammy articles that will get placed on high ranking sites. Our knowledge and contact with webmasters means that we know which doors to knock on to get your articles placed.. Is that it? No there's lots more, it is very craft and labour intensive. Good links are not 10 a penny, there is probably 3 - 5 hours work across different disciplines to achieve the best results. We're happy to spend time talking you through this and understanding your project . If you're local let's meet!! If not, let's jump on a call, we have clients all over the UK. Once hired Maratopia believe in transparency: - We will start by creating a benchmark - We will agree the course of action - At the end of the month we will report what has been actioned and achieved, your results - Agree the next tranche of work. - If Google changes, or your competitors change, we'll advise and alter strategy immediately if need be. - We will also advise you on: +usability / conversion +supporting strategies such as PPC, Blogging, remarketing , email and social media Maratopia guarantees That we will not work with another competitor of yours That if we deliver backlinks, we will not remove them after our term (some companies do, which also suggests that they are not natural links) That we will use plain English to explain what we do We look forward to meeting you.
