What is SEO and why do I need it?
SEO is the abbreviation for search engine optimisation and involves a set of practices designed to improve the visibility of your business in the search engine, since search engines are still the primary way people browse the internet.
Google has become synonymous with the word “search engine” due to its sustained monopoly in the search market for over 20 years, maintaining a 92.47 percent market share as of June 2021.
Google uses crawlers, also called bots or spiders, to gather information about your website. The crawler analyses your web pages and then looks for key signals that help it to understand what your web page is about and uses this information to help provide the best matched results for users of their search engine.
These signals are commonly referred to as “keywords”. The crawlers scan through your pages and tries to understand your content by contextual interpretation of keywords in your page. When the crawlers see that you are consistently placing importance on a particular keyword that is mentioned in your page title, meta description, images and URL, an algorithmic pattern is developed which helps Google understand what that page is about.
A famous SEO expert called Brian Dean conducted extensive research and identified over 200 ranking factors that Google uses to decide which result to show the user. There are many factors such as your websites technical architecture, page loading speed, keyword density, internal and external links to name a few.
This is why it is not enough to simply have a stunning website design developed without having it optimised for the search engine. Most people tend to have a beautiful website, but literally no search discovery, because SEO was not a consideration. This would result in your website not achieving the objective which is to actually use your website to attract customers, orders or whatever your business goal is.
This is why we you need a SEO agency to help do this work. Whilst there are plenty of SEO tools and tutorials available for anyone to learn the basics of SEO and start optimising their website, the reality is that most businesses simply do not have the time or skill for this tedious work. This is why they use SEO agencies like ours to do it for them. If you’re company is around the Greater Manchester region, it makes sense to use a SEO Manchester agency.
Why SEO Manchester Agency?
Perhaps one of the reasons for this is because there are so many new startups and small to medium sized businesses with great entrepreneurial spirit. All of these businesses require SEO services leading to an explosion of SEO agencies like ours.
Once a SEO agency has developed a successful strategy it is quite normal for them to grow extremely fast. Who doesn’t want their website to also be successful? With so many thriving Manchester businesses and digital marketing success stories, Manchester has become a top place to find your SEO agency.
Most importantly, SEO Manchester agencies are far cheaper than agencies in other parts of the UK such as London.

How much does SEO cost in Manchester?
The cost of SEO depends on your website ambitions. If you are an established website and already are successfully generating revenue from it, then you should be spending between £1,000 to £3,000 at least in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
On the other hand, if you are a new website that is not generating any revenue, then you should be spending at least around £1,000 per month with a professional SEO agency like ours to work on optimising your website.
If you cannot afford a budget of at least £1,000 per month for SEO, then it will be difficult to use a professional agency. In such a case, it might be better for you to invest some time in learning about the basics of SEO and completing actions that can help your website rank for some long-tail keywords that have a low keyword difficulty.
How long will it take to get SEO results?
You can expect to see your website gain organic search rankings within the first few months, but for meaningful organic search traffic you should be prepared to invest in SEO for at least 6-12 months before generating a return on investment.
SEO by its nature is a long-term investment. This is because it takes time for your website to build reputation and trust. The goal of the search engine is to provide its users the best match results. For your website to be a best match result, there are over 200 ranking factors Google uses.
To build up your website with these ranking factors in mind, a lot of work is required in reviewing your website architecture, writing good quality content and then promoting this content to generate backlinks.
What is the return on investment from SEO?
SEO is the best digital marketing strategy you can invest in to generate the highest ROI. This is because, once you begin ranking for keywords organically, you can potentially generate your website goals such as enquiries, calls or sales, from organic traffic for years to come.
To give you an example, we wrote an article for one of our SEO clients in Manchester called “What is the difference between 3D and 4D number plates?” well over 18 months ago. This article now generates consistently £1K of monthly revenue simply due to organic traffic. The article itself cost around £75.00. So that is a huge ROI!
This is why so many businesses invest heavily in SEO, because they recognise that the more keywords you rank for, the greater the return on investment.
How will you report on my SEO performance?
Our agency has built one of the best performance reports in the UK. We have built a 50-page google data studio dashboard which uses over 15 different data connectors to provide you an entire overview of your websites organic traffic, performance, keyword positions, commercials and more.
We integrate your website, google analytics, google search console, SEMRush etc to pull all the data in one place. You can access in real-time all your SEO performance reports any time. We use this SEO dashboard as our guide to identify gaps and opportunities for your SEO as well as fully monitor search traffic trends.
