Frequently asked questions
We regularly help our clients to achieve top Google rankings for very localised geographic areas, and have a great deal of experience of working with businesses in Surrey.
With the advent of mobile search, it has become extremely important for Google to locate both users and the businesses they are trying to find.
So, if you are in Guildford and Google “coffee shop”, the results on display relevant local results and not coffee shops in other areas. To be able to pinpoint a business’s location there are a number of factors Google looks for, and if your website includes these, you can be listed for searches in your areas.
The answer depends if there are people looking locally for what you are selling.
For example, if you are a bicycle shop in Redhill, and someone is searching locally for “bike shop” or “bike shop in Redhill”, it is safe to say that your business would attract new customers.
Before starting a local SEO campaign, our first job is to determine the local keyword opportunities for your business and if they will deliver to you a good return on investment.
We can only answer this question once we understand your market, and what your business is looking to achieve. For example, a top Google ranking for “plumber in Surrey” will require a great deal more work than “florist in Bramley”.
Contact our experienced SEO agency team today to discuss your businesses goals, and we can then put together a no obligation quote for you.
High-quality local SEO services in Surrey
Surrey Google rankings
Does your website currently achieve top rankings in Surrey for your most important keywords? We will help you to achieve this.
One of our first tasks is to find the local search terms that will drive you the best quality enquiries which will turn into customers.
There is no point in ranking number 1 in Google for phrases which will not drive you more business.
You cannot understate the positive impact that ranking No 1 in Google can have on some businesses, it can be revolutionary!
For example, if you are a plumber in Guildford, ranking No 1 for “plumber in Guildford” could result in a significant number of enquiries each and every single day.
Though there are some businesses where people do not search online, so SEO may not be the right marketing strategy.
We are only interested in helping our clients get more customers, so to discuss whether top Google Rankings could help your business, please contact our highly qualified SEO agency team today.
Surrey maps rankings
Does your Google My Business listing appear prominently at the top of the search results for your top keywords? We will help you to achieve this.
It has been found that people using Google prefer to click on the local maps listings at the top of the page over and above the natural listings. Click to see image explaining this.
This listing is called your Google My Business page and we can also optimise this to improve your ranking on Google. Things we do to optimise this listing can include:
- Setting the listing up properly with photos and videos
- Asking customers for reviews on this listing
- Setting up quality directory listings to enhance the standing of your Name, Address and Phone Number
The result of having a No 1 ranking can in some cases be even more significant than ranking No 1 in the natural listings, some studies showing 40 or 50% if searchers clicking on the No 1.
To discuss whether optimising your Google My Business Listing is suitable for your business, please contact us.
Rank other listings
Do you have other listings, such as Yelp, or Facebook currently ranking at the top of the search results for your top Surrey keywords? We can help.
Many people think of web marketing as just their own website; though there are many other opportunities where your business can drive direct enquiries, traffic and better Google rankings.
For example, of you are a Hotel in Guildford, you may have the following:
- Google My Business Page
- Trip Advisor Listing
- Facebook Page
- Yelp Listing
- and many more....
Many of these sites will drive you direct enquiries with people not even visiting your website. It is also possible to rank these listings alongside your own website in Google, so that you could have more than one result on the front page of Google!
Some markets are more suited to this strategy than others, so please contact us to discuss the best options for your business. Our experienced SEO agency team are here to help you.
Optimising your business for Surrey
Does your business website clearly tell your visitors and Google about your Surrey location, and the areas in which you operate?
If you are a business located in Surrey, then your website needs to reflect this in its content and design:
If you work in a geographical area, it often works well to have dedicated pages for that area with unique and useful content.
For example, if you are a hotel in Guildford, it would be useful to both your site visitors and Google to have;
- dedicated information about the area you are located in, and for those who do not know Guildford
- information about finding you, and things to do close to your location
- Structured Data
You want to make the search engines job as easy as possible when reading your website. One way to help them know your site is located in Surrey is to add special code called structured data, where you can add
- Your business locations and addresses
- Your customer reviews
- and more...
For more information on what may need to be improve on your website please contact us.
Does your website or other listings have positive customer reviews, which also help your Google Maps rankings?
It is normal now for most of us when we buy something on Amazon for example, to read other customers reviews before ordering.
Local customers do this as well and therefore your business reviews are extremely important.
Not the ones you put onto your own website, as everyone knows these potentially could be changed!
The key reviews to get are the ones on other trusted websites such as Google Maps, Trip Advisor, Facebook, Trusted Reviews etc.
A large number of positive customer reviews will not only help you convert more site visitors into customers, but will help with your local Google rankings.
To discuss your customer review strategy and more, please contact us.
Does your website have links from other Surrey websites and organisations which are boosting its Google rankings?
If you have any local competitors online, it is very likely that you are going to need links from other websites to help you rank in Google.
One of the best way of doing this locally is to get links from other local websites.
For example, if you are a hotel in Guildford, then this may include:
- Having sponsored a local football team, a link from their website
- Link from the local newspaper following an article you sent them
- Links from local restaurants who you have relationships with
- and more...
The number of quality of the links that you will need to get is very much dependant on the strength of your website, and what your competitors have.
This will require detailed analysis and dialogue with yourselves to determine a ‘link building plan’.
To discuss this in more detail please contact us
