SEO Services Agency in Hertfordshire

No SEO jargon, false promises or shady services. We're a professional search engine optimisation company who can help you out-rank, out-smart & out-perform your Google competitors.

Did you know that there are over 1.2 billon other websites online, many with business owners just like you who are competing for rankings in search engines? 

Many search engine optimisation companies will throw jibberish at you - thankfully we're not one of them. We make it our business to help your company thrive using SEO as well as inform, guide and educate you. For example, review this super-useful guide by Google called How Search Works, Search Engine Land's excellent "What is SEO?" guide or Tony Dimmock's very own SEO Resources blog post to increase your understanding.

As a Hertfordshire-based SEO company, we help businesses in Hitchin, Letchworth, Knebworth, Baldock, Welwyn, Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage, Hatfield and surrounding areas.

To start, this excellent SEO video is worth a watch, especially if SEO is new to you (it's only 3 minutes long):

When you're looking for a professional SEO company, you need to cut through the rhetoric and ask the hard questions up front - to satisfy your mind that the company can be trusted and to assure you that they have what it takes to really help you.

See our blog post on choosing the right SEO company - it offers tips and advice to help you avoid common pitfalls. Also, this excellent video from Google Search's Maile Ohye offers tips on hiring a company:

"The potential of SEO success for your website, is only as high as the quality of your website or business"

We're a transparent, Hertfordshire-based SEO company - that means you'll have access to our project management software as we work together, so you and your staff can see we're doing what we said we'd be doing, when we said we'd be doing it. Clients who've chosen us mention that our transparency is a breath of fresh air, when compared to working with others who never disclose the SEO services they're providing or hide behind fancy-looking reports that mean nothing to you or your business results.   

As you've guessed, we are a straight-talking, results-driven SEO services company who believe that you deserve 100% honesty, 100% commitment and 100% loyalty - without these three key elements, a win / win professional relationship isn't possible.   


Choosing us as your SEO services company - what can you expect?

We'll help you increase your search engine exposure and increase the leads or sales generated for your company, by:

  1. Discussing your business goals and objectives - without knowing these, we can't really help you
  2. Asking questions about your products and/or services - we want to understand your business inside out
  3. Setting realistic expectactions - from the outset, we'll be brutally honest and up-front about how long it will likely take to become an authority (and therefore rank) in your online market-place
  4. Auditing on-page, off-page and technical SEO currently used throughout your website - without knowing how effective your current SEO is, we can't help you improve your search engine performance
  5. Following Google's Search Quality Guidelines, including: semantic keyword research, writing customised "on-page" SEO components such as Title Tags, Meta Descriptions, Headings and Sub-Headings, technical SEO, site architecture, Google My Business optimisation (to increase your local visibility) and editing or writing new website content
  6. Following Google's recommended techniques and practices for SEO
  7. Following Google's webmaster guidelines for keeping your site healthy
  8. Growing your online profile with link acquisition, social media marketing and local search optimisation techniques
  9. Reporting the performance of your website in Google's search engine ranking pages, the behaviour of your website visitors and conversions
  10. Providing beginner or advanced SEO training, should you need to take a more hands-on approach yourselves

What expertise should you look for from an SEO company?

SEO Services Hitchin HertfordshireWith so many "experts" in the market-place, the most important element to look for is a specialist who takes the time to understand what you really want from your website. A professional SEO company will take the time to understand your business model, investigate your competition and use their experience and expertise to deliver the business benefits you're looking for: more leads, more customers, greater revenue and greater profits. We're proud to state that we use only white-hat, Google-recommended and ethical SEO practices.

It's also important that your consultant understands which practices can result in your website's pages being penalised or removed entierly from search engine indexes. In 2016, Google reported how they fight webspam and the huge efforts they make, to remove spam from their results pages.

An experienced search engine optimiser will ensure that your website avoids common malpractices, such as:

  • unnatural links (to and from your site)
  • thin content
  • UGC (user generated content) spam
  • hacked website
  • cloaking 
  • keyword stuffing
  • hidden text
  • doorway pages
  • scraped content
  • duplicate content
  • non-topical re-directs
  • paid links

An experienced SEO will also have a strong understanding of algorithmic updates and how they can affect your rankings, such as:

Here is a list of Google's algorithmic changes, in release-date order, from the year 2000 to 2017.

How can an experienced SEO consultant help your business?

As search engine consultants, we know that every day more and more of your competitors are using the internet to sell their products, services and information online. It's fiercely competitive and never more so than when the economy is cutting back. There's a smaller pie available, with you and your competitors all fighting for a piece.

A good search engine consultant will improve your search engine rankings – your online visibility – through carefully selected services which complement each other to bring the best results.

Additionally, they'll keep you informed of progress and not be afraid to tell you what you need to know, not what you want to hear. Indeed, good SEO consultants are worth their weight in gold!


We're different - we walk the SEO walk

Search engines like Google and Microsoft Bing continually change the way they rank websites on their search engine results pages - which means you need to work with an SEO who has their finger on the pulse and who is up-to-date with the changes that search engines make (otherwise known as "Algorithm updates" as discussed above). How did you find us? Locally in Hitchin or Hertfordshire? The reason we're found in Google is that we employ the practices that we provide to our clients.

We've also achieved tremendous success for a variety of clients (both in Hertfordshire and across the UK) from many differing sectors and industries, which means regardless of the size or scale of your business, we can help you win online. 

We care, we put our heart and soul into the success of your SEO campaign and we don't look for a quick buck – for you OR us – but instead create for you a bespoke, efficient and cost-effective internet marketing strategy.

What investment should your business make in SEO?

This depends entirely on:

  • What you and your business wants to achieve
  • Your budget - without knowing this, we can't advise you on what is realistically achieveable within your desired timeframe
  • The performance of your existing website
  • What is needed to help your website out-gun, out-smart and out-rank your competition
  • Whether your website is optimised in-house and only require our consultancy services (not hands-on)

As the perfect compliment to your SEO efforts, are you currently running social media campaigns but need a little help to step your activity and effectiveness up a gear? Call us for details of our social media training services. 


To help you with SEO, we'll need to do the following: 

1) Discuss your business goals and objectives, either over the telephone or in person. We're happy to visit you too and discuss your needs over a coffee!

2) Run an SEO audit to understand your website and online profile as they stand right now - this gives us a starting point, prior to work being carried out 

3) Review your Google Search Console (formerly "Webmaster Tools") and Google Analytics software data - we'll need "restricted" access to both of these tools (and we'll show you how to give us this - it's simple!)  

4) Provide you with a quotation of the services we'll need to carry out including deliverables and projected outcomes



To get the ball rolling, either: 

We'll need to speak with you first prior to conducting an audit or meeting for a coffee - we do not provide quotations without dialogue between us first. You can also read more about us or review our client testimonials.

We look forward to working with you!
