Improve your online visibility & drive the right kind of traffic to your website with holistic SEO
SEO is inbuilt with every new website we create from scratch. We also provide technical and holistic search engine optimisation to improve online visibility and conversions for existing, underperforming websites. If your site is not getting found online, or the delivering the results you need, we can help.
We have an impressive track record in fixing poor-ranking websites SEO
Are your customers finding your website on Page 1 of the search engine results pages—the SERP—or your competitors? Over 90% of our clients rank on Page 1 of Google for their important keywords. Some even rank in multiple spots! We have 20+ years of experience optimising websites for online visibility using a combination of on-site technical SEO, copywriting, and content marketing for high-intent keywords.
Are your customers finding you online—or your competitors?
90% of all website visitor traffic comes from a search engine, with 75% of all clicks going to the top 3 listings on Page 1 of the SERP. What's more, 91% of all web pages never get any search engine traffic at all! Want to be one of the 9% that do?
In a world with 1 billion+ websites, savvy business owners know that to compete, they must get found on Google. If your site isn’t found on the first 3 pages of the SERP, or at the top of the Google Local map, you will struggle to get any traffic without paid ads.
Google’s algorithm determines which sites to return in the SERP using 200+ ranking signals. Off-site signals like backlinks are one of the most important, but not easy to get. And with 80% of paid ads being ignored, that just leaves on-site optimisation.
The alternative to paying for dubious backlinks or expensive PPC ads is to invest in SEO with an experienced team who know how to employ proven white-hat on-site and off-site search engine optimisation techniques that outrank your competitors in the SERP.

What we do
Search engine optimisation services
Technical SEO Audit
We take an exhaustive look at the technical aspects of your website, to identify what's working, what's not, and determine the fixes needed for your SEO campaign to be most effective, both in the short and long term.
Since Google updated its algorithm to include page loading speed—part of Core Web Vitals—your rankings may suffer if your site takes more than 3-seconds to load. We can often speed up your site by 50-80% without a complete rebuild.
In-depth keyword research to identify the most effective and profitable topical clusters your business should target on Google, including competitor keywords, and your Google Analytics / Search Console data.
Meta titles, descriptions, headings & content optimisation for search intent and topical keyword clusters to strengthen relevance & authority, optimise your rankings, attract a more qualified audience, and help you generate more leads and sales.
On-page internal linking connects related content for humans and Google to follow, allowing Google to see, index and rank the most important pages on your site in a logical, hierarchical structure, increasing page ranking potential.
We create a web of local citations and niche directory listings, to ensure your site acquires links from industry-specific and authority sources, that act as trust and authority endorsements, to improve your website ranking for your keywords.
Website not ranking or converting? Here's one we 'fixed' earlier ?
Building Vision London's old site was slow, not mobile-responsive, and was losing ranking and traffic. We built them a fast new SEO-optimised website which gained a 2000% increase in search engine traffic, a 400% gain in ranked keywords and a 100% increase #1 rankings within 8-weeks of the site Go Live.
SEO and digital marketing share a common goal. It's not just about search engine rankings. It's about attracting the audience most likely to convert. That's why we take a holistic approach to SEO, optimising for users, search engine bots and building brand awareness, for maximum ROI.
While technical SEO can improve your rankings within weeks once existing issues are fixed—it’s not unusual for sites sitting past Page 10 before to quickly start ranking on Pages 1 to 3—your content still needs to resonate. It's why paid ads don't always deliver the results you need.
While we’re very good at fixing technical SEO issues, we're also experienced marketers, and pay close attention to your web copy. Because unless your content is found for the keywords your ideal customer is searching for, you will struggle to attract the kind of traffic you need to grow.
SEO tactics we use include
- Technical SEO—e.g. structure. image optimisation, speed optimisation
- On-site copywriting and content marketing (TOFU, MOFU and BOFU)
- Social media marketing and guest posting on 3rd-party websites
- Off-site citations and linkbuilding in local and niche directories
- Google My Business / Local Maps account set up and posting
- Google PPC, Google shopping and social media ad campaigns
- Remarketing, lead magnets and email marketing campaigns
Want to outrank your competitors and dominate Page 1 of Google?
That's what we've done for Herts Limos Group. They began working with us back in 2012 and have several automotive related sites that we created and maintain for them—all of which rank well and often occupy multiple spots on Page 1 of the Google SERP, as in the screenshot here.
The strategy we used for Herts Limos was aimed at helping them dominate their marketplace by squeezing more of their competitors off Page 1, using technical SEO, carefully-crafted content and meticulous attention to detail. This is not an isolated case.
Since Covid, we've ranked 6 London electrician sites on Page 1 of Google and in the local map pack for a single client whose goal was to rank across several southwest London Boroughs for electrical contractor services—a very competitive marketplace.
But every business case and market vertical is different. Some are harder to rank in than others—such as hospitality dominated by behemoths like hotels.com—and may need additional digital marketing efforts to get results, at least in the early days.
Organic SEO is a long-term strategy to make your website more relevant to search engines for your keywords and rank higher in the SERP, resulting in more clicks, leads and sales conversions for your business without the need for expensive paid ads.
The good news is, we can advise you what your current underperforming website's SEO issues are, and what it's going to take to fix them. We've been doing this since Y2K and are highly qualified to undertake all necessary remedial SEO work on your behalf.
